Dell :: Replace Bad Connector On Quadro 2500m With Connector From Dead 7800go?
Is this feasible?
Some arsehole on ebay sold me a quadro with a busted connector and refused to refund. I had no idea about the 60 day policy so i was overly patient in waiting for my refund until it was too late.
Anyway, the quadro was intended to replace a 7800go that died some time ago. Is it possible to solder the connector from the dead card onto the quadro? i don't have the skills but i live in thailand and [reasonably skilled] labor is cheap.

Dell :: Underperforming Quadro 2500m
earlier this year I moved to vista , having good performance under games and a 3dmark05 score of 6500-7500.. , over the course of the year I had many reinstalls cause I wanted to check both X86 and X64 versions of Vista , and decided to stay with x64.
now I don't exactly know when exactly it happend - but a few months back I noticed my 3dmark05 score went down to 3300-3700 , well I thought .. maybe just a bad driver , so over the last 2 months i've tried many driver versions (155.xx , 156,xx , 169.xx from Laptopvideo2go and NBF) and I had the same results with all , I did fresh driver installs so thats not due to bad install or anything like it.
since I'm Currently playing WoW only :P I don't have any other benchmarks to run , Aquamark doesn't work under x64 and I don't know about any good benchmark tools.
something else I noticed which im sure is relevant - I remember that before having those problems my Temps went to the roof while gaming (93-94c) and 73c when idle , now with the new sets of drivers I have about 83c when gaming and 67c idle , now don't get me wrong .. im happy with those temps , but that also means my card doesn't stress itself to the max.
my 1st guess was Powermizer feature , Tried disabling it in the nv_disp.inf without any luck.. I'm not too sure if I managed to disable it.. GPU-Z always "sees" my clocks (500/600) at max.
I also thought about installing an old driver version but honestly I don't remember which drivers were ok to use under vista x64.
so I would really appriciate Ideas , that is before I do format C: ( I really want to avoid it this time).

Sony :: Z Power Connector
How sturdy is the power connector on the Z? The power cord is putting quite a bit of pressure on the connector.
The connector is made of plastic, not metal. I have my doubts about the longevity of this kind of connector.
Dell :: XPS Quadro Project 99% Complete (+ Overclocked 2500M Results)
I finally got what is the old school Generation 2 look which IMO looks better. click here if you're interested to see how it looks like. Custom parts include the slot load DVD, keyboard, Atheros card and seagate hard drive. Future plans include quadro card sticker (being mailed) and maybe an internal camera mod.
After assembling everything, I continued to do more benchmarking using 3dmark05 and overclocking under vista. I've heard stories about vista hurting performance, but my god does it murder a good amount of framerates and performance. Non-overclocked, I got a best of 8582 on XP, and 7749 under vista.
After reflashing the vid bios and playing with rivatuner and atitools, I started at 575 core and 650 mem, ran 3dmark05, scored 9320. At first, I was pretty amazed at the score considered what vista did to it when it wasn't overclocked. I thought it would go somewhere where it was under XP (non overclocked). Anywho, I decided to up it a bit to 600 core and 700 mem. This time, 3dmark05 gave me a 9110. I tried it again, this time turning off any programs running in the background, and got a similar score. I lowered both clocks back to what it was when i scored the 9320 and ran it again. This time, it gave me an 8840.
Pretty interesting how these scores came about, but has anyone been in a similar situation? I'm thinking about going back to XP or just make a double partition for it, once i figure out how to w/o wiping half my HD.
Acer :: EX5630 BT 8pin Connector
I just picked up an EX5630. It didn't come with BT which I would like to add. It has an 8pin connector for the BT module. Reading around a little it looks like this connector is no more then a USB port. 4 pins are for the USB port, 2 pins for the LED and 2 pins for the BT switch. Can anyone confirm this? If this really is just a USB port I would like to build a custom cable that runs from this port into a very small two port USB hub which I will mount inside the laptop. There is a perfect space inside to do this. Then I will rig the BT module to one of the ports on the hub and use the other port for my wireless mouse dongle. It would be so nice to not have to plug in the dongle anymore and get BT at the same time.
I am very happy with this laptop so far. Well, after wiping and reloading Vista on it. It looks like it had a ton of BS preinstalled. I had to boot it up long enough to snag the tokens.dat file and I had to acknowledge 700 popups along the way.

Dell :: Vga Connector Problem On D800

Dell :: Truemobile Bluetooth Connector Pinout
Dell Truemobile bluetooth connector on the motherboard just appears to be a USB port.
What I wanted to do was use a generic bluetooth module and wire it to the Dell Truemobile bluetooth connector but I need the pinouts. There seems to be 10 pins but on USB there is only 4.
I have an Latitude X300 and disassembled the laptop entirely looking for a contact points for a possible USB connection on the motherboard. I thought there would be some because there are many USB hubs listed in device manager but only 2 ports on the actual laptop itself, but I couldn't find any so I am trying to work with the Truemobile connector.

Acer :: Aspire 1700 AC Power Connector
what brand the 4 pin AC plug on the power adapter!
It is almost an Mini DIN connector but I have those. The pins are fatter and the dimension of the circular connector is slightly bigger than the DIN.
My guess is that the connector is used on a number of the 1700 series.
HP/Compaq :: 2 Audio Jacks But Single Connector On Speaker
On my HP DV5-1015TX I notice that there are 2 audio out jacks in the front.
However my speakers have only connector that I plug into either one of these. This works but I am am wondering if there would be any loss of audio quality when used this way (maybe surrond sound or something)? OR is the second audio-out an extra connection to say headphones?
HP/Compaq :: REQ: 2730p & 2530P Ownerspics Of 1.8" HDD Connector
I am comparing this against the connector in the 2510P to see if there could be a possibility of retrofitting the 2730P connector to obtain a SATA output. The 4200RPM ZIF drive in the 2510P is ultraslow and ZIF (PATA) alternatives in SSD or 5400rpm HDD form are poor value for money. micro SATA is the way to go..
Found the HP Media Library has systemboard pictures. The 1.8" drive connectors for 2510P, 2730P and 2530P are here:
Though it is somewhat difficult to make out the 2730P 24-pin socket. Can anyone take a photo of it and link on here? Here's the one for the 2510p
More pics at [url]
We can see that the 2510P ZIF socket is very different to the 2730P systemboard connector. BUT! There is the unused 24-pin socket on the 2510P that looks remarkably similar to the 2730P 24-pin SATA connector. Could this be used to provide SATA on the 2510P?...........
Dell :: How Bad Does A Battery Have To Be Before Will Replace It
And how do they determine it? My word? Tests?
My M1530 will hit one year old at the end of the month. My battery life is just sort of crappy. As a test I charged it up to 100% then unplugged it. I dimmed the screen to about 50%, turned off Wifi, then just let it sit idle. Nothing running. The battery lasted about 90 minutes.
Clearly not great, but does that sort of performance warrant a replacement?
Acer :: 6530 Dead After Bad Bios Update
how to flash the bios of a Acer Aspire 6530 without being in windows.
I download the bios update and opened to see how it worked and then accidently shut the zip file that it was in and it crashed, computer froze and now it wont work!
It load the boot screen and even windows but crashes after mup.sys and brings up an error screen about problems with computer and shuts down. I have tried reinstalling windows but when i get to the hard drive section the hard drive is not there although its there in the boot screen.
I have tried re installing the bios with the phoenix recovery tool but that didnt work.
Im guessing i need the Insydeflash tool and some special file name for the bios.
Dell :: Quadro Nvs Or Quadro Fx Which One Is Better
I've a question about dell lattitude and dell lattitude.
These two laptop've a different graphic chip. Which one is better for some 3d program like Sketchup, CAD, 3DSMAX. I prefer on Lattitude e6400 , It's look slim and good design. That's OK. But I've a question about a GPU in this laptop. Can it play some games?
- The Sim2
- Need for speed
- Pro Evolution Soccer
If I compare Quardo NVS160 & GFORCE 9300. Which one is better for some 3D program? Quardo NVS?
- Quardo NVS160 & Quardo FX370 - How about a diffrent?
Lattitude or Precision?
Dell :: Replaced My 7800go With X1400
my 9400 was overheating badly, and the screen was blacking out etc.
dell decided to replace the system
i receive an old crusty 9400 from the depot that looks like someone had used it for a place to set their coffee for a while, and the outer shell cosmetics are chipped,scratched, and generally low quality.
but, thats not my real issue....this laptop has an X1400 card in it.
my original system had a 7800 card.
i didn't think this was a "like-for-like" replacement, so i escalated my case. the supervisor i spoke with didn't understand what the issue was all about i guess, cause she kept telling me that i received the SAME laptop as a replacement
she even got some guy from tech support on the phone with us to have him verify the specs between the 2 cards....but after about 20 minutes of him saying that my replacement system has the IDENTICAL card in it as the original. (7800 and X1400 are different....thats why they have different names and part numbers...)
anyways, i asked that the tech support guy get the actual card specs for each one out so he can see that the 7800 is 256 dedicated memory and X1400 has only 128 dedicated memory.
he puts us (yeah, the supervisor lady is still hanging out on the phone cause she says she can't request another replacement until she gets verification from tech support that the cards are in fact different...so much for knowing anything about these products).......anyways, we're on hold for about 5 minutes, we hear a click, and then he's gone.
this was horrible and amazing at the same time because the supervisor lady started saying "hello?...are you there?....HELLO?....tech support are you on the line?"...so i guess she got to see how wrong an frustrating dell customer service can be
horrible because she's like "well, let me got ahead and dial back into the tech support queue so we can get another rep...". i said no, she should work it out with the proper department and get back to me, cause it'd had been almost a full hour at this point.
so my question is, is there something special i need to say to get them to understand that an X1400 card is not comparable to a 7800 card? i remember seeing people posting on here with a similar situation a while back, but i can't find those old threads. as an aside, the laptop is still under the original 3 year warranty as well as complete care.
Dell :: I9300 7800go Gtx Upgrade
I bought the 7800go gtx card from another person locally, and he also installed the video card for me. He followed the installation instructions from this website, and left after he installed the video drivers from Tweaksrus and got the resolution back to 1920 x 1200. After he left my place, I used my laptop with the usual applications, and I found the laptop to be much sluggish than before. When I tried to watch a movie in .rmvb format, there were often and obvious stuttering in the video playback. I was very disappointed as even 6800go vanilla (my original card) would play a simple movie smoothly, why would a much stronger card such as the 7800go gtx have any problems? Moreover, I rebooted my laptop multiple times and there were two times at bootup, an error said "no bootable device was found, press F1 to retry or F2 to go into setup". The other times it would boot up into Windows XP as normal. I left the laptop alone after getting so frustrated.
Thursday night: I tried using my laptop again, and the normal applications were still sluggish. I tried to watch some movie again in .rmvb again, and the stuttering video was unbearable. I then thought may be it was the video drivers' problem, and I uninstalled the tweaksrus video drivers the person installed for me. Then I installed the the mobile 7800/7900 drivers from Nvidia's website. It got even worse as the video playback stuttered every 3 seconds in a movie. Then when I tried to play Warcraft 3, the video also stuttered, which was very surprising as even 6800go vanilla would handle it smoothly in the past. I then tried a couple more drivers from Laptopvideo2go, and the sluggish performance was unbearable. I rebooted my machine for about 13 to 15 times and there were again two times showing the "no bootable device" error message at start up.
Some other things I noticed:
On some of the video drivers I installed, it showed the GPU temperature, and it was 70C when it was idle. Is that even normal? Seems too hot as people here said idling temp was around 40C to 50C.
Some questions that I have:
1. What is going on with the error "no bootable device"? I have never seen that before in the past 1 year and 9 months (since I have my i9300). I am sure it is related to this video card upgrade.
2. Do you have similar video stuttering issues when you are using the 7800go gtx card in i9300?
3. Do you think the card may have some overheating issues?
4. What video drivers am I supposed to use? Tweakrus has been down for a few days already. I am a very casual gamer so I pretty much just want movies to play smoothly and games running a little smoother and faster.
5. How is it possible that when go 7800 gtx supposed to be 2+ times stronger than go 6800 vanilla, would give such poor performance?
Dell :: Latitude E6400/6500 Touchpad Is Bad, How To Make It Less Bad
This is not the newest topic but it's been well described that the Latitude E series' touchpad is crappy. With the launch of Windows 7, I thought that I'd give the new touchpad drivers a try. Still as crappy.
This is the worst touchpad and pointing stick that I can remember using on a laptop. Normally I wouldn't care, but actually having a terrible nav system really stinks more than I thought it would.
Well, my stop-gap solution was to simply remove the Dell touchpad drivers altogether and go native with whatever Windows 7 detected. What an amazing difference! The touchpad is usable now (it doesn't freeze and it tracks much better).....
Dell :: Bad Gpu Or Bad Driver
I was playing thief deadly shadows on my e1705 when the screen freaked out and showed this message.(look at pic)
I held the power button to shut it off and when i rebooted the lcd would not show a picture. I figure the gpu is dead. Well i left it alone for the weekend and booted it up Monday morning to see what it does and it was working ok. It took a bit longer than usual to get past the DELL boot screen but it showed no glitches or anything. so I played thief for about 30 minutes and the screen freaked out again and displayed the message. my question is this a driver problem or a hardware problem? I started using a new tweakforce driver to overclock the go 7800 about a month ago. I used a different tweakforce driver for years to overclock before and never had a problem. I used to use an 80.xx driver and I switched to a 94.xx a month before the crash.
Dell :: FX 2500M Not Usable On M6300
I have installed a FX 2500M (rev A02) on a M6300 system board A10 Bios, the card is working but its clock is fixed to 100MHz (100MHz core + 100MHz mem).
FX 2500m doesn't switch to 3D Low mode (200/300) or 3D Performance mode (500/600).
It always remains on 2D Mode (100/100)
Off Course the same card works correctly on M90 System Board.
I have tried many drivers, DELL version and generic version by laptopvideo2go, but same results (always fixed to 100MHz).
I have tried Rivatuner to force clock switch. Same results No Switch
I have even installed a new OS (Vista 64) and with it, I have a strange situation.
With Vista64 (no SP1) original driver supplied by MS (and based, I suppose, on forceware 96.xx) the card seems to works at high clock.
No information tools can be used (with MS Driver) so I can't see which clock are active but 3D performance (games and benchmark) are near the performance achieved with M90.
But once I update the driver by installing a recent version supplied by Nvidia (Dell version or generic is the same), the card blocks to 100MHz even under Vista64.
Unfortunately with MS Driver there are many graphics error and it isn't so usable with 3D application (i.e. games) and furthermore I want to use the card with XP32 (Vista64 has been installed only for tests).
Dell :: AS5 On 2500m GPU --> Higher Temps?!
In short: My e1705 with a quadro 2500m is idling at temperatures at least 10 degrees celsius higher than it was before: 70 degrees with slow fans compared to ~60 with slow fans (I had fans kick in at 65 to bring it back to 60). There have been no hardware/software changes to the system.
So I read the guides about applying AS5 to your GPU and I thought I'd try to get better temps.
I cleaned off all the old compound from both the GPU and the heat spreader, and placed about a pea-sized piece on the GPU (see attachment). It wasn't the most perfect blob of AS5, but volume-wise I think it was pretty close, and ideally it would be smoothed out when I tightened the screws on the heat spreader.
I stuck to a "less is more approach" having heard that all I needed to do was fill the minor imperfections of the contact surfaces.
Dell :: Dead Screen Or Dead Video Card
I am at my wits end with my e1705. I had a sudden meltdown about 2 weeks ago... screen went scrambled, BSOD,etc...
Performed diagnostic, memory on video card came back as bad. Replaced with new card (from Dell), reinstalled OS, completely reinstalled nVidea drivers from Dell (Used driver cleaner too)...
Everything went smooth for a couple hours after this was completed yesterday (full diagnostic showed no errors), but after booting up today, after about 5 or 10 minutes of use screen freezes and turns either solid cyan or black... a small pattern of thin lines appears also.
Dell :: So I Think My Vostro GPU Is Either Dead Or The Fan Is Dead
I was playing stalker a few days ago getting 50-70 FPS and now come today its so much lower at 20-30(not playable) and I tried CS:S, and COD4, and they all seen dramatic fall in FPS. I don't notice any artifacts but I just notice huge FPS hits. I also think my fan isn't running anymore but I am not sure. Does anyone one know what I should do now? Its out of warranty already.
Dell :: Quadro 3600M In A M1710
I am a fully certified DCSE for dell and I was just certifying today on the 2008 systems and noticed that the vcard instructions for the M1710 are identical to the Precision 6300.
the X800 really had 16 pipes, you can damm near oc the 7900GS' core double, amongst other surprises... It would explain why dell may have held out on this card until the dual 8800's came out for the M1730... Who would buy a 1730 w/8700's when you can get a new card for your 1710... Timing me thinks... It wouldn't hurt dell too much to release that card now since the duals are out and are obviously faster...
Dell :: Quadro NVS140M And Latitude D830
I'm starting to get some weird video symptoms on my Latitude D830 with the Nvidia Quadro NVS140M video. Fairly random at this point, maybe once or twice a week, the screen does something weird in terms of displaying stuff that it completely shouldn't, even during boot-up.
Don't know if this chip is a member of the family of Nvidia chips that suffers from the bugs, but has anyone else experienced this with a heavily-used Latitude D830 yet?
If I have to get a new motherboard, has Nvidia actually implemented a solution, or are they still shipping the same parts? I have ~3 years of warranty left (plus the bonus year), but I don't look forward to a motherboard replacement every year or so.
Dell :: Engineering Sample Quadro Fx1600M
I purchased an FX 1600M to replace my fried 7900GS. BIOS didn't recognize it. At the beginning of the boot screen I realized that the card was "engineering sample" and I couldn't install nvidia drivers by double clicking on the setup file because no compatible card recognized. I only could install them from the device manager by updating drivers and pointing out the extracted drivers folder. I use A09 BIOS and Windows XP.
Everest and gpuz say that the card is Quadro fx1600. On every speed setup ati tool showed artifacts, even with downclock!
However the card managed both 3dmark 05 and 06. Actually with good marks.
The card had 2 heatpipes but since my case needed modification I decided to change heatpipes with my old GF7900 gs. With 1 heatpipe I installed it in my Dell E1705. Can it be a heat problem that atitool showed artifacts? I also use i8kfan to check heat run and while gaming temperature went up to 84 degrees. Idle temperature was 60 degrees (corrected with gpuz). I will modify my case soon and install it with 2 heatpipes again.
Does anybody know about "engineering sample" gpu's?

Dell :: XPS M1710 Can It Have Quadro Graphics
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 :: Modding The Quadro Fx3500m To A Geforce7950gt
I just modded my quadro fx3500m into a geforce 7950gt using the rivatuner. I did this because i thought the card would perform better while playing games. However there was no improvement and some games like NfsProstreet became slower. My 3dmark06 slipped from 5867 to 5734.Has this happened to anybody else,or did i go wrong somewhere?
Dell :: M6400 Quadro 2700M Vs Games.......
Does anyone know why this card is RIDICULOUSLY RIDICULOUSLY and last but not least RIDICULOUSLY TERRIBLE!!??
I installed CoD5 and the graphics looked no better than my 7950gtx NOR my 128mb ATI which is about 5 years old. It even looks terrible playing Warcraft 3. Even looks bad when playing vista chess- i can see the jagged edges.
I might as well get a laptop geforce 6800, and it will BLOW BLOW BLOW the newer Quadro 2700m away anyday any night.
Dell :: D630 And Nvidia Quadro NVS 135m
My laptop is a D630 with Windows Vista 32 which otherwise was working perfectly.
First the facts:
-Starting last week, my screen started to switch off without apparent reason requiring a hard reboot each time it happened since nothing else worked to bring it back to life.
-Then it started getting worse, one of the times I rebooted I got a split screen (two identical bad quality images one on top of the other) and the only way I managed to get out of it was to disable the nvidia driver (I had already tried to revert to the previous one and it was failing as well). Only problem with that is that playing video with the Nvidia disabled is a nightmare since the image slows down a lot and it's not synchronized with the sound.
-I tried to install the latest drivers from Dell (it seemed to be working then), and then I installed the latest ones from Nvidia and started having problems again.
-At some point during all this, my Windows lost the ability to suspend or hibernate.
-When I thought about restoring the system, it was already too late to go back to before the problem started, since all the available restoring points where more recent than that. (I know, slow reflexes on my part). I still tried to restore to when the new Dell drivers were working but the restoring failed (several times).
-Once or twice I managed to re-enable the driver and make it work for a few hours but the "screen turn off" eventually appears again.
Now the questions:
-Does anyone have a solution for this?
-Has it happened to anyone else? I searched D630 and Nvidia in the forums but all the threads I found were from 2008 and older.
-What's the next step, what should I do now?
-Would re-installing Windows be the only option, or it wouldn't help at all since I'd still have a driver problem?
