Dell :: M1710 Graphics Card Dead, Help

Oct 16, 2009

I was playing GRID on my Dell XPS M1710, and got a load of corruption and lines on the screen, and the laptop shut went into a kind of safe mode. It has never been overclocked, and dust has been cleaned recently.

Now, when I turn it on, I get artifacts and corruption even at the BIOS screen. I've tried reseating and reinstalling the drivers, but it hasn't worked. I'm going to call dell tomorrow, but as it's out of warranty,

I don't expect much help. There's no way I'm buying a new GPU, (they cost more than the laptop is worth), so I'm going to try and fix it. I'm going to use the oven fix as a last resort,

and would appreciate advice on anything else I can do to fix it, as well as any tips when performing the oven trick. If anyone is selling a 7900GTX/7950GTX for a decent price, you may have a buyer

Dell :: (M1710 With A 7950GTX Card) Card Was Overheating ...

Apr 5, 2008

I've been having problems with my video card. (M1710 with a 7950GTX card). The card was overheating and even after applying AS5 and cleaning the vents it was reaching around 100c in games. After about a year, i started to also get memory parity errors...

Long story short, i contacted dell and they mailed me a new mb and a new video card.

I just got it now, and i am going to open the rig and replace the video card.. I am just not sure about the mother board, should i replace it as well ?

The parts that dell sent are refurbished parts, and as i know that my m.board is working i am not sure whether i should replace it or not.

Dell :: XPS M1710 Graphics

Mar 27, 2009

I know that there are lots threads about various GPU related problems, but somehow I didn't find any information which i would be very interested in. So:

PROBLEM #1: I have dell m1710 (GPU: GeForce Go 7950 GTX; the last time i've cleansed dust lats time about four months ago) for 18 months. Its waranty is expired.

Some time ago, while playing a game which does not require lots of graphics power, the screen covered with color lines and squares (screenshots included). As I closed the program and looked at GPU temperature it was around 66. I've restarted my laptop and at first it didn't boot at all and all startup information and BIOS looked like written in some kind of hieroglyphs.

Now my laptop only boots on safe mode or normal mode but only if resolution is no more than 1280x800. But i think it won't last long until it won't work at all .....

Dell :: XPS M1710 Graphics Dead

Mar 16, 2009

The 7950GTX appears to have died on me, artifacts on boot up and black screen with drivers installed all the pointers of dead graphics card.

What options have I got I'm out of warranty and looks like I'm paying for new GPU if I ever want any graphincs out of this thing again.

I'd like to replace the 7950 gtx 512mb but its abit expensive (only looked on ebay) any other outlets for them? (I'm in the UK)

If I go for a different one 7900 7800, amI going to notice a massive difference?

Dell :: XPS M1710 Can It Have Quadro Graphics

Mar 11, 2008

I have been out of high school for two years now and working as a waiter and I am still living with my parents. My dad told me to do something with my life or move out .

Anyway, I decided to go to ITT tech for digital entertainment and Game Design. I guess my dad was glad because he said that I could have his old XPS M1710. Well, my buddy is in school for game design and said that I have to have Quadro graphics for game design.

But, I can't find anything that says that there is such a thing as Quadro with a M1710.

My buddy has an Alienware notebook so he is no help with my Dell, but he swaers that M1710s can have the Quadro. I tried calling Dell and they said that M1710 don't come with Quadros.

Anyway, is there such a thing as Quadro M1710? If so how do I get it. Do you need a new motherboard or is a card and how much would it cost me. Right now my M1710 has a ATI x1400 video and from what I read won't help me at all in school.

Dell :: XPS M1710 Video Card Options

Feb 1, 2010

I was going to repair my Inspiron 8600 but now I have a chance to get my hands on an XPS M1710 with what is believed to be the same fried video card everyone is experiencing with it...what would my options be for repairing this computer if it is simply the video card needing to be replaced?

I can find the stock replacements through Dell and eBay, but I'm curious if there are other alternatives out there?

if the hard drive from my Inspiron 8600 would be compatible?

Dell :: The M1710 Video Card Ride Down

Mar 9, 2009

I've joined the legion of M1710 users that have had their video card crap out on them. Typical green lines and bars results in chat to XPS support to have 7900GS replaced. That lasted ~ 2 weeks. Dust cleaned out every month, on a cooler pad,etc. Screen goes black suddenly (not screen saver) and a reboot leads to green lines again. Another chat/phone call to Dell results in replacement motherboard AND 7950 GTX. Nice upgrade. So, how long should I expect this card to last? I've had no other issues and really do my best to keep everything clean and cool. And when this card goes (they all seem too?).... I should mention that I received the M1710 as a replacement for a E1705 that overheated, had parts replaced, and then needed to go to the depot to be "fixed," only to return un-repaired and with the wires to the wireless antenna cut inside the case.

Dell :: Replaced M170 With M1710 Video Card

Aug 28, 2007

They gave me a 7900GS instead of a 7950 GTX. I know some of you have had the same problem.

Everything else is fine, I could care less. But, I really feel that I should have gotten the GTX instead. Two Questions:

1) How minimal is the downgrade from 256mb 7800 GTX in my old M170 to a 256mb 7900GS? How big is the difference in the 7900GS vs the 7950GTX?

2) For those of you who have gotten this problem, how did you go about getting the card switched? Did they send a new system? I'd rather they just send the card and I'll swap it out myself.

The replacement was approved on the 8th, and I just got it today. Apparantly it's a new build, not a refurb. But I want the video card that's not a downgrade.

Dell :: Adding External Antenna To Xps M1710 Internal Wireless Card

Mar 23, 2009

This is what I am working with:

Computer rig:
Dell XPS M1710 Review (pics, specs)

Wireless card intel specs:
[url]

And I think this is the external antenna I would like to get (would love any suggestions):
5 dBi Magnetic Mount Omni Antenna - Omnidirectional Antennas for 2.4GHz - Antennas - Fleeman, Anderson & Bird, Corp.

The pdf says the wireless card antenna is, "Hirose* U.FL-R-SMT mates with cable connector U.FL-LP-066"

So basically is all I have to do is buy one of these, 4 inches U.FL Pigtail:U.FL to MMCX WiFi 2.4GHz 802.11g - eBay (item 160119011606 end time Apr-09-09 01:58:22 PDT)

Drill a hole in my laptop case and install one of these connected to the first adapter that is connected directly to the card:
MMCX to N-Male, Pigtail 19" 100-Series - CA-MMNMCN19

Now the n-female from the antenna can then connect to the now adapted laptop wireless external antenna?

I am presenting all of this as a question because I think this is what I need to do but I would like to double check with some knowledgeable people first that this can work, is feasible, will bring desired results (increased range) etc.

Dell :: M170Dead Graphics Card

Jan 16, 2008

My trusty (out of warranty) XPS M170 has given up the ghost shortly before its second birthday. I'm fairly certain the GeForce Go 6800 Ultra is shot; there was a moment of heavily corrupted graphics followed by a BSOD, then nothing more on the LCD since (backlight still working fine). The VGA output has small green lines over the picture.

I'd like to get another year or two's use out of this baby. I hear the M170 can take a GeForce Go 6800, GeForce Go Ultra 6800, GeForce Go 7800 GTX or an ATI X300. I'm happy to put any one of those in the machine; I really just need solid 2D performance. The ATI would be perfect but I have no idea where they can be bought from.

Is there somewhere reliable from which I can source a new graphics card? I have dropped an email to Dell as their UK site doesn't seem to have spare parts. The US site seems to have a slightly ovepriced 6800 card, which I wouldn't mind resorting to if necessary.

Dell :: Gen 2 Graphics Card Fried

Nov 17, 2009

I've been having a problem with my xps gen 2 laptop lately. I was using it the other day and closed the lid and let the system hibernate while I was at work, when I opened it up again it looked like the video card was artifacting. (It has a 6800 ultra in it) I don't use the system to game anymore, its just my daily laptop and it doesn't do alot of video intensive tasks. I ran dell diagnostics and it said it was experiencing errors writing to memory. Every once and a while I can start the system and there is no artifacting. I'm pretty sure the video card is fried because it artifacts while posting, and on the external screen I tried as well. I pulled apart the system to clean it (it wasn't to dusty, I blow it out with compressed air a couple of times a month).

Also I removed the graphics chip and reseated it just to make sure it hadn't come loose or anything. I just want to be sure before I spend the money to replace the graphics chip. I'm probably going to replace it with an x600 since most of the things I do aren't graphics intense and I plan to get a new laptop some time next year.

Dell :: How To Get To The Graphics Card In My 1520

Oct 27, 2009

I've followed the instructions provided by Dell and have it at this point:

http://img269.imageshack.us/img269/9061/dsc00072bpj.jpg

I know the card is located under the big "metal thing" that says PUSH HERE, I've loosened all the screws off (3 are used to secure it to the motherboard, 4 others are used to secure the metal thing to another,

smaller board) but i can't seem to separate the smaller circuit board from the metal...and the last thing I want to do is force it too much and break it.
