Dell :: Nvidia 3d With XPS1730 And M6400

Jul 23, 2009

I have both the machines mentioned above, and am considering getting the Nvidia 3d bundle.

Can anyone answer the following questions:

1) Do I have to run Vista?
My XPS is running XP, and a quick check shows that only the 32-bit SLI drivers for the 8800s are available: No 64 bit versions on the Dell site.

2) Will SLIed cards still work?

3) My M6400 has Vista 64, but will the 3D work with a Quadro card?

Apr 27, 2009

I wonder if anyone has tried the latest version of Ubuntu or Kubuntu on XPS1730. This laptop works very cool on Windows XP (Core2Extreme, 8700SLI, 4GB RAM).

It is just hard to find what might be the reason/solution .....

Dell :: SLI Option Suddenly Disappeared In My XPS1730?

May 21, 2009

So after installing the new 185 drivers a couple of weeks ago, I turned on SLI, restarted, and forgot about it.

Now I just checked the nvidia panel and there is no option to turn on SLI. I went to device manager and only one 8800m gtx is listed there when there used to be 2... seems like the computer doesn't even see the second GPU.

tried reinstalling the drivers but still only one gpu is showing up...

Dell :: Time For A Change I9300 > Xps1730

May 1, 2008

My current config is in my sig.

I realy want the 8800 sli setup, but so expensive. I'll have to settle with 8700 sli .

Is this setup good for another 2-3 years?

Processor will probably be an T9300 with 4GB ram and vista ultimate.

RAID won't happen either because of budget limitations.

Is it possible to upgrade to 8800 sli later on?

Dell :: M6400 And The M6400 Covet? Whats The Difference?

Jul 17, 2009

Yup me again, in my hunt to determine if M6400 is right for me as it costs just about as much as a used car, I want to make sure its a good investment before I buy it.

What is the main difference with the M6400 and the M6400 Covet?

I configured both with the same specs and the Covet is about $900 more in price?

Does orange paint really cost that much?

Dell :: Precision M4300 Installed The NVIDIA Drivers For The NVidia Quadro FX 360M ...

Dec 29, 2008

I recently got a Dell Precision M4300 from a friend and had a few questions.

When i got the laptop, I reformatted the Laptop and Reinstalled Windows XP Pro SP2. I proceeded from Microsoft to Update to SP3 and so on.

Well I also Went to Dell's Website and downloaded all the necessary drivers (using the service tag) for this laptop and installed them.

Now here is where I ran into a problem,

When I installed the NVIDIA drivers for the NVidia Quadro FX 360M video card, everything seemed to go fine. Then I rebooted the Laptop, and now every time I reboot, my hardware acceleration is defaulted back to None, and it gives me multiple pop ups about this issue. I go into the settings and turn the Acceleration back to full and it goes away.

This is a major problem, and is really frustrating to deal with everytime the laptop is booted up.

My other problem, is when I open up Internet Explorer, It tends to lock up the browser for no reason when Loading a website. I then CTRL+ALT+DEL and attempt to close iexplore.exe via the task manager. It closes the browser but does not shut down the browser, making it impossible to browse, so then I have to reboot.

here are the specs of the PC, from the device manager and drivers I have gotten

Dell Precision M4300
NVidia Quadro FX 360M 512mb Video Graphics Card
TSST 8x dvd+-R burner
120GB Hard Drive
3.5GB of Ram
2.5GHZ T9300 Core 2 Duo Processor
1394 Port
2 USB ports
External Monitor Ports
Wifi Support
Bluetooth Support
Windows XP SP2 Pro

Dell :: If You Like Your M6400 Please Tell Me..!!

Apr 16, 2009

I guess I'm about to get a mobile workstation. I already got an M90 it is great. Only one dead/stuck pixel and the front panel silver button paint came off in a few month of usage.

But I love it. So I am thinking of getting an M6400. Can you back me up on this one..?? Please if you own one tell me the pros and cons.. Have you noticed any Dead/stuck pixels.

What about built quality, feel, comfort, performance, heat, cooling, fan noise, screen quality ( thinking of LEG or RGB LED)..

Any creeking noise while opening the lid or holding or working on the laptop?? Any thing you can tell me about this beast of a machine will be a great help for me indeed

Dell :: My M6400

Oct 23, 2008

my M6400 is here - just wanted to post some first impressions.

X9100 - 3.06ghz
Quadro 3700M
1440x900 WXGA+
Wireless 5300
Bluetooth 370
DVD+RW slot load
Silver Color
Backlit keyboard
2x 80GB 5400rpm drives

2 Intel X25-M 80GB SSD drives will be replacing those 80GB's.

First - my first thoughts are that this system is Fantastic!

The screen is great - its an LG, fantastic colors, no dead pixels. Typical viewing angles for non LED screen, not great, but not noticeably bad either.

No noticeable bleeding, no graininess - very happy with the screen.

Ran 3Dmark 06 (1280x800, stock drivers) - 11,619

GPU temp was around 80 C - not bad at all.

So far, very happy. Putting the SSD ddrives in now - will post more thoughts as I do more. Will post pics ASAP.

Update 1: 2 80GB SSDs are in place - this has Intel's Matrix Storage which allows the creation of one RAID1 volume (which I will use for valuable data) and a RAID0 volume for the rest of the space - this is very nice - get the benefits of both types of RAID in one system!

Update 2: The power brick is completely absurd. Its HUGE - 210W. The good news is that I plugged in a 130W from a M4400 and although I get the popup about the AC adapter not being at least 150W, it does charge the battery and allow the system to run. To me, this is an acceptable alternative to lugging around the giant brick, at least for most things on the road - Later on, I will test the system with this adapter and see what kind of slowdown is caused.


RAID Setup:

Next to a M4400 (that I believe I'll be returning very shortly):

Next to an older E1705 - these are virtually the exact same size - its astounding what new tech can cram into the same space

Dell :: Dead M6400

May 27, 2009

Whilst working away at my desk, M6400 docked it just powered down.

Pressing the power button causes it (the power button) to light briefly and then go out. Pressing FN+Power (as requested by Dell Tech) does nothing at all.

I've tried it with another PSU (I got 2, one with M6400, other with docking station) - and if you plug the PSU in, and then hit power on the laptop - the blue light on the PSU goes out - and doesn't come back on till the power is cycled. The M6400 does nothing during all of this.

The PSUs work just fine with my D820.

Dell techs are coming tomorrow to fix it. I'll let you know what they say!

Dell :: Ok To Install XP On M6400?

Jun 14, 2009

I've just bought a refurbished M6400. It comes with no preinstalled OS. I have a dell install disk for Windows XP SP2. Is it ok to install this on my M6400? I will then update to SP3 over the web.

I guess i will also need to install drivers for the graphics card, etc etc.

Please let me know if you have any advice and pitfalls to watch out for.

I'm also considering adding a second hard drive. What drive specification do i need?

Dell :: 3dmark06 On The M6400 Seems Low?

Jun 20, 2009

I know this is a workstation, and not a gaming laptop, but I still want to use this machine for some after-hour gaming.

What I find odd is that the HP 8730w (which was recently reviewed) got scored a massive 14,263 at 1280x800 resolution,

but the Dell M6400 seems to around 11,600+/-. Odd considering the Dell M6400 is a more powerful system?

Dell :: M6400 Covet64bit?

Mar 10, 2009

I recently noticed that you can not configure a 64bit covet any more, which results in not being able to configure more than 4GB Ram. Also, the covet has only a few specified configurations that are allowed.

Is there an issue with the 64bit? Anyone know why Dell removed the 64bit options?

Dell :: M6400 Fan Noise

Mar 7, 2009

I find the noise of the fans of my M6400 quite disturbing.

It is certainly much louder than the noise from my M6300 (also a 17" high performance laptop), or my former D810

The fans kick in quite often after short periods of being off.

Is there a way to slow down the fans or have them off for longer?

Is there a compatible fan in the market that is quieter?

Dell :: M6400 + Intel X25-M

Jun 22, 2009

My Intel SSD X25-M will be arriving in a few days. Lets hope it has the latest firmware..

But is there anything i need to know before i put the SSD in the laptop and proceed with the installation. I understand there are a couple of things I need to do in BIOS and one of them is to change the SATA setting to AHCI???? ATA?? instead of RAID. And then after installation i change it back to which one???

I would do a search on the forums, but its the crappy search tool which makes its hard for me to do a specific search.

Dell :: How Can I Get The Best Deal On A New M6400?

Jan 20, 2009

I've been looking at the ThinkPad W700, but I've recently noticed the Dell Precision M6400 as well.

Both machines are pretty pricey, though. I know there aren't usually many sales or other deals offered on the Lenovo workstation-class notebooks, but is it pretty much the same for the Precision line?

Aside from coupons (if they even offer coupons for Precisions), are there any other tips for getting the best deal possible on one of these machines?

When it comes to dropping $3k on a machine, I think it would make me physically ill to do so, only to find out later that I payed more than I really needed to.

Dell :: M6400 Diy Cpu Upgrade

Dec 21, 2008

I orderd a m6400 from dell with a qx9300 and the delivery has been delayed until next year some point which they cant even confirm, it would have been delivered to the UK where I am now but I will leave the UK before dell can deliver.

The only solution I have come to is that there is a site in germany called planet-notebook selling the base systems. Completly unloaded.

So my question is will I be able to buy a qx9300 chip and fit it onto the laptop, does anyone have any idea how difficult this will be. Will I for example need any tools or equipment except for a screw driver? Do I need some kind of thermal paste I heard about or is that just an option as Id have no idea how to apply it.
