Dell :: Normal Temps For 1730?

May 28, 2009

I just got my 1730 today and it's quite awesome.

However upon downloading hwmonitor, it seems my temps usually hover around mid 60s and go to 75s quite often making the fans come on. Is this normal?

And I live in the bay area pretty close to San Francisco, so the weather here is usually pretty cool

Aug 21, 2009

This is at idle (although it is about 85 degrees F and humid at my house). But this is with a Antec cooling pad with my SXPS16 on an angle.

Dell :: XPS M1330 Normal And Max Temps? (CPU / GPU)

Mar 11, 2009

I've been fighting this M1330 for a while, and had the motherboard replaced once already to "fix" the GPU issue.

But I'm still worried about temps.

Sitting flat on a coffee table (not blocking the vents or anything) and playing Fear 2 demo

the laptop just shut down (presumably due to high temperatures) after only 5-10 minutes.

Acer :: Are These Temps Normal For Ferrari One 200

Apr 1, 2010

i have already re seat my heatsink and replace the stock TIM with a better thermal paste which is the OCZ Freeze.

now i cant seem to remember and i also forgot to record thru OCCT the idle temps of the cpu at stock 1.2ghz clock.

i am wondering if it is normal if my idle temp now after my replacement of the stock TIM and reseating are ranging from 39 celsius up to 45 celsius while its load/slight apps would get these temps to 50 celsius going up to 54 celsius.

Apple :: Windows 7 Temps Vs Windows Vista Temps

Jan 26, 2009

i set up this thread to compare the temps between windows 7 and windows vista. i googled for it but there's no comparison chart. please feel free to contribute.

windows vista:

idle: 62-65
under load: 77-85

windows 7:

idle: 55-60
under load: 70-80

i see that windows 7 runs noticeably cooler than windows vista. Please post your details so that other users can have an idea about what to choose if they decide to bootcamp windows.

Dell :: Studio Xps 13 Led Vs Normal Lcd

Aug 16, 2009

My only question here is whether or not the LED version is noticeably thinner than the normal LCD version.

If it's not noticeably thinner, I'm not going to bother with that option. I know the LED is brighter,

but in imho, if it's not noticeably thinner, it does not warrant a $100+ premium.

edit: now I'm having second thoughts. Can someone help me pick? LED or 9500 GE? They cost about the same for an upgrade.

edit: I just ordered a refurb from outlet
dell studio xps 1340
13inch LED

Dell :: Two XPS 1730 P

Mar 24, 2009

I'm having 2 issues with my 1730 and I was wondering if anyone here could provide me with some advice.

First, these issues are both intermittent, I cannot reliably reproduce either issue on command.

Second, my machine shipped with Vista32. Both issues existed in Vista32 and have persisted into Win7. The Vista32 HDD was removed and set on the shelf and a completely clean install of Win7 was performed to a new HDD.

Issue #1. Memory Parity Error, System halted. This happens as a BSOD less than 5 secodns after the post at boot. The wording was different in Vista but it said the same thing. It claims it's a hardware error and contact the Mfg. This happens to me once or twice a week always on the first power up. It is extremely rare that power cycling it does not solve the problem. It does not appear to be getting any worse, or better.

Issue #2. When gaming (windowed or full screen) the screen goes black and I get a notice that the video card stopped responding and has been reset. 10-15 seconds later the directx picture reappears and the game continues with no interruption.

I'm pretty sure these are in fact hardware problems, but how do I prove it to Dell? I can't demonstrate it reliably, and my machine passes every diagnostic I throw at it.

It sounds like a cold solder joint somewhere. I would think step 1 would be replace the video card and the RAM, and step two would be replace the system board. I don't see myself being able to convince Dell to just send out a guy with all the parts though...

Dell :: Best Cpu For 1730

May 16, 2009

I'm not sure, but what exactly is the best cpu for the xps 1730? Can it use the t9800? Or is that a different chipset? And if possible can you list both the dual and quad (if such exist) that's the best for the laptop?

And on a side question, I'm coming from a MSI gt725 that has the radeon 4850. If both are non overclocked with theoreticaly same speed cpu, which would perform better overall on a real life situation, the radeon 4850 or the sli 9800m gt?

Dell :: Clicking HD. Normal Or HD Failure

Jan 16, 2009

When idle, my harddrive makes a very faint clicking noise. By "clicking", I mean the same sound it makes when it is loading something... you know, that "tik tik tik" noise.

However, when idle, it tends to make little "tik" noises every 2/3 seconds or so.

Now, according to the internet, clicking means my HD is about to die... but having looked on youtube, by clicking people mean very loud clicking, like i was turning a light switch on and off...

Now I don't know. Is "access" clicking every few seconds normal? Or should i get my hd replaced??

To clarify, the clicking i am experiencing is no louder than the clicking you hear when ur HD is accessing information. If I used HDParm and play with the settings, the clicking sounds becomes almost impossible to hear and less frequent.

Dell :: Is This Normal Temperature For My XPS M1730?

Oct 11, 2009

Lately I've been busy and haven't played a whole lot of games. Just the other week I notice my GPU temps went up on ilde. The fan would kick in ,to stablized the temp around 75 degrees then drop to 60 or so. The temperature just keeps climbing up till it maxed at around 75 degrees.

Iv'e already went and bought some air can blowers and blow all that dust and lints out. I even ensure it's clean by shining a flash light thur the top of the fans and look thur the vents to see if I can see the fan blades. All is clear but I'm still having then same issues. When I ran games such as RE5 it gets really hot sometimes reaching 95 degrees.

My palms sometimes starts to burn anyone encounter such act? Wondering if there's anything else I can do before calling DELL support!

Dell :: XPS 1730 Line (Next?)

Sep 8, 2009

I have been a SUPER happy customer with my M1730. I originally owned an XPS Gen 2 (way back in the day). My question is, are they going to make a new successor to M1730? It's been a while, I've seen DELL come out with the new lower XPS line (13/16). Also now with the Adamo. However, I see no mention of further XPS 17XX. Have they discontinued it?

I know they purchased Alienware, but I just don't like Alienware, it looks a little to geeky for me.

If they took the M1730 and just upgraded the board so we could get the 1333Mhz RAM + G270M Video card + QuadCore (However, I'm pretty happy with my X9000)

Dell :: XPSGen2 Vx 1730

Jun 7, 2008

I have an XPS Gen2 that I upgraded shortly after purchase to a 7800GTX video card.

2 Nights ago, my video card started acting flaky, i get strange lines during POST, text mode has incorrect glyphs for letters and Windows BSOD's with nv4disp when i try to boot non-safe mode. I'm fairly sure the vram has given up.

So I'm planning to reinstall my old 6800 (woot for being a packrat) this weekend and prep the machine for sale if it works after the reinstallation.

I've never been video-limited with this machine, in fact I've been CPU-limited for quite some time. Is a single 8700GS roughly equivalent performance to my 7800GTX?

I had a lot of money when I bought my Gen2, but sadly that is no longer the case so I am going to be stalking the refurb site for my 1730. I do occasionally see rare 8700GT SLIs and I've seen 1 8800GT SLI refurb show up, but as I said I'm trying to keep this a bit cheap.

For my real work I'm quite confident any modern Core2 processor will be a wonderful upgrade, but for Video/Gaming I'm just not so sure. Primarily I still play multiple sessions of EQ1, some NWN and WarCraft and I'm planning on playing some Starcraft2 when it comes out. I almost certainly will upgrade the DVD drive to a BD unit at some point in the future so compatibility with that is a must.

Also, I've read some comments here about 8700GT SLI driver issues, are they pretty much resolved? Are the 3rd party "tweaked" drivers compatible with the Dell SLI setups?

I could call a technician to install it... my question is what else should I change?

I trust you so before spending one cent I want to be sure this is feasable!

1730 users, do you use this program on your laptop? i used it on my 1705, installed on my 1730, and i had to reinstall my audio drivers, dont know what happened there. anyway, does the bios (a03) do a good enough job on its own of keeping the temps on the sli cards down? or do you guys recommend using this program or any other? also, do you know which fan cools the gpu? the first or second?
