Dell :: Replaced Motherboard And Graphics Card And Still Low FPS,?
recently had my dell xps m1530 motherboard and graphics card replaced by dell,
Since then, whenever I turn it on I get a message saying " the charger is only a 65w and your battery requires a 90w charger ",
Just before my laptop died and I called dell to come and fix my laptop, I was getting the exact same inconsistent framerates in games like l4d, Where i would usually get around 60+ fps, I was now only getting extremely inconsistent 25+ max fps..

Dell :: Bought Studio 1537 Motherboard And Replaced 1536
I have a 1536 that I thought had a dead motherboard. I bought a 1537 motherboard, T9600 CPU & a CPU fan & heatsink. Finally all the parts showed up & I got it installed. Unfortunatly all this new hardware & still same problem. When you turn it on the media lights flash on & then off & the DVD drive makes some noise. The display doesn't turn on & no HDD activity. I know the 4G of DDR2 is good & the HDD is good as I tested them in another laptop. Any help would be helpful. I would think that I would get some HDD activity ( noise & HDD light ) if the display was dead.
Dell :: Replaced MB/GPU On 1330 Now Graphics Are S-l-o-w
I just got my Dell back with a replacement MB and GPU due to failure... I used to run Wow smoothly with medium/high settings 50-60 fps,
now I am getting like 10-12 fps! My 3DMark 2006 scores went down almost a thousand points (from about 2K to 1.1K).
Same drivers from the nVidia site179.28, and I just updated to 179.48.
I know the Laptopvideo2go's might be better, but I was running the ones from nVidia before the swap.
Dell :: Call Of Duty 4 After Replaced My Video Card
So the technician successfully replaced my video card and everything was great and fine with the world. I tried it out on Call of Duty 4 and checked the temps which peaked at a MUCH lower level so I thought I was good to go and I was happy. The only problem I had was a small amount of choppyness in the game, but I just figured I had the settings too high and I had not overclocked it at all. No problem.... So now today I wanted to play good old Oblivion and I figured this would need some overclocking because well....its Oblivion. So I start up ATI Tool and overclock it to around 620 mhz core and 720 mhx memory...Not too much overclock considering some of you have got yours to like 650 or higher and 800 in the memory department... Well I was just about to start playing when after the game loads there is no character on the screen just grey lines... So I figure maybe I overclocked it to much? I turned it down about 10 to 20 mhz and I still had some artifacts? I pretty much turned overclocking so far down I would now consider it slightly pushing the card. So I try to play oblivion and it is really choppy. Before I got this new card I had some pretty bad heat problems and crashing because of it, but I could overclock it to a MUCH higher level than that of this non heat problematic card?
So my question to all of you highly intelligent and knowledgeable people of this forum is do I have a bum card or is something else the matter? Sorry for such a long post I just felt my story needed to be fully explained so I could receive the best support...
Dell :: Replaced M170 With M1710 Video Card
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 :: On The 9400/E1705 How Can You Tell If Its The Motherboard Or Video Card ?
I got a Dell Inspiron 9400/E1705 here that will not boot. The owner said he put into hibernate and went home, when he came in and turned it back on it was sluggish for about 10 minutes, he powered it off and then it would not power back up.
When you turn on the power the power and HD lights come on, you hear what sounds like the HD doing some movement and then it shuts down in a few seconds.
I removed the HD, ram, dvd, wifi, modem and tested it with same results. Also took out the CMOS battery to try to reset the BIOS and put it all back together and same thing.
CPU fan does not spin at all on power up, not sure if this model is supposed to do that little 5 second thing most of them do.
No beeps, nothing on the screen, etc.
Is there a way to determine if its the motherboard OR the video card, as this has a discrete video card, not integrated. Would you get any kind of system response if the video card was dead but the motherboard/cpu was ok ?. I would rather replace one and not both if I can tell which to go after first.
thanks for any ideas or advice.

Dell :: Graphics Card Seems To Have Disappeared
I have an inspiron 1720 which came equipped with an Nvidia 8600m GT. I have had it for a few months but recently found that my laptop says that I do not have a graphics card.

Also it said that my total graphics memory was <unavailable> and that my dedicated video memory etc was N/A.
Dell :: M170Dead Graphics Card
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 :: Graphics Card Drivers
can I install the latest ATI drivers from the official site, or do I have to get them from the Dell site?
(Actually..i can't seem to find them on the ATI site :S Does this mean you have to wait for Dell to update? Or am I just not looking in the right place?)
This is for a Studio 15
Dell :: Gen 2 Graphics Card Fried
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
I've followed the instructions provided by Dell and have it at this point:
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.
Dell :: XPS M1530, Best Graphics Card
My M1530 came with the Geforce 8400M GS card and I was wondering what is the best one I can upgrade to? I read somewhere it won't accept newer graphics cards or something like that? Just trying to make it a little faster.
Also as far as upgrading the CPU, in the device manager it lists it as an Intel Core 2 Duo T5550. I'd like to upgrade this also but as far as newer CPUs go I'm not sure which models would work

Dell :: Processor And Graphics Card Replacement
Going to try to keep this short and sweet. I am being offered a system with a much better processor and graphics card, but there are some serious things missing (which can be added to the 1458), such as, backlit keyboard, the SSD. I do use the backlit keyboard often, and the SSD is the main reason I got the XPS in the first place. Should I call and ask for the same specs as the 1340, or just accept the system they are offering me? .....
Dell :: My Warranty Just Expires .. And So Did My Graphics Card
I was watching a video today on youtube when the screen paused and green lines appeared around the video. Next thing I know the display turns off and every time I reboot the computer the LCD screen turns on but nothing is displayed.
It boots into windows(I can hear the login theme) but nothing on the LCD. Anyhow here is my dilemma. I was told that because I'm just five days past my warranty, expired on the 22nd, that I might still be able to get it repaired or I could buy an extended warranty.
However, I'm worried that if I call in and tell them that my laptop is dead that they will not only deny repair, but will bar me from getting an extended warranty? Which according to the dell website and my service tag I can still buy. What should I do?
Dell :: Graphics Card In Studio 1737
I recently purchased a Dell Studio 1737 for mainly college, everything about this laptop is great, except the graphics card, the infamous Intel Media Accelerator.
I would like to know if there's anyway to replace, or would I have to get another motherboard to replace it, and if I have to replace it I would like to know a estimate of how much it would be,
and personally I would like a high end Nvidia card =], not so much ATI.
Dell :: Switching To Onboard Graphics Card
I have an dell m1710 xps and the graphics card has died (again). I know there is an onboard graphics card, and I am hoping/wondering if I can use that to transfer my files off the hard drive.
I thought maybe I should hook a monitor up to the machine, but then I don't know how to access the bios to set which card to use - as the screen is blank. I know there is a way but I cant figure it out.

Dell :: M1710 Graphics Card Dead, Help
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 :: About Upgrading Graphics Card And In Game
i have a dell inspiron 1505 notebook. I bought it new about 1 year ago, i had it upgraded from dell with the 1.86 core 2 duo processor 1 gb of ram and a 128 ati x1300 mobility graphics card. 1 year ago most games only required a 128mb card which was fine, but now most seem to run on 256, there was a 256 option from dell for another 80 dollars on top of the other upgrade fee i already paid and i did not think it was necessary. So i know there is one out there. I have searched around on the internet for a while off and on and i can only find reviews of products i can not find any info on where you can actually buy an upgrade for this computer... I would like to get it upgraded to the 256 if it would not be too much. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
And also i play Battlefield 2142 occasionally and it had a freezing issue on the load screen so i dropped the graphic settings down a bit then it worked fine. But it has happened again, and i dropped the settings down as far as they can go with no luck it still does not work, and the EA tech told me to look for an update for my graphics card which i did and installed one that said it fixed "some gaming issues" but it did not fix the freezing issue.
Dell :: Graphics Card Resolution D530
I have a Latitude D530 company computer. Unfortunately, it only supports 1024 x 768 screen resolution for the unit's display.

Acer :: Have I Killed My Graphics Card
Owner of an Acer Aspire 8930g.
I have successfully upgraded my CPU from a P8400(2.26) to a T9600 (2.8) so was reading through the MXM compatability thread and decided to pull my 9600m GT out just to double check which version it is, so I shut down the machine, removed the back and unscrewed the card, popped it out, comfirmed its the MXM-II type, reseated and rescrewed it back together.
Now I get a blank screen, external monitors dont work either.
I realised I forgot to remove the battery when removing the card, although machine was shut down.
I left it running for a bit with the back still off, felt the CPU and its hot as you would expect but the GPU was cold!

Sony :: Blu Ray- Graphics Card- HD Screen
laptop that has
1. Great style
2. Blu Ray
3. A graphics card that can do ok in gaming
4. A nice HD screen
I was looking at the E series and I kept hearing that the E series had a 5660 in it well
I went to the Sony website tonight and only shows the 5470 I think. The question I had was will Sony put the 5660 in the laptop or is the 5470 for a different country like the UK? Will the Full HD screen be available in the near future, or will they keep it like it is?
I was also looking at the f series with the i7. will the 330gt be that much better then the 5470 and if so Is it worth the difference in price? If you had a choice which one would you choose
Sony :: Graphics Card- VGN-AR61M
I have a Sony Vaio laptop, model number VGN-AR61. It is factory installed with an Nvidia 8400M GT graphics card which seems to have failed. Vista disables the device fter the machine has been ruuning for 5-10 minutes, with the generic error code of windows disabling the device after it has stopped working.
I read a thread somewhere that these graphics cards are prone to cooking themselves and failing.
If the video card has failed, is it integrated into the motherboard or is it a part that can be changed?
The machine failed 1 month after the warranty expired (13 months old).
HP/Compaq :: Dv9000t Graphics Card
I bought a dv9000t about 2 years ago for college. Almost exactly a year after I bought it, I turned it on to find the screen completely screwed up. It displayed only grey (almost black and white alternating) stripes horizontally with organic shapes of varying shades throughout the screen. I hooked it up to an external monitor where I was able to use it in safe mode only, but with extremely limited color gamut (i.e. the cutout filter on photoshop) so that gradients appeared only as blots of color. It also displayed the screen with white dots and lines across everything.
After some investigation (with no help from HP) I came to believe that the graphics card was, for lack of a better word, fried. This having happened some week or two after the warranty ran out--hp wanted some $100 to even officially diagnose the problem, and unofficially it would cost $600 more to fix. What I am wondering is if the problem actually was the graphics card, and in any case, is this laptop worth anything more than sitting on my shelf? (I bought a sager np 5793 and haven't looked back, but my brother needs a laptop and there sits the HP...)

Dell :: How Do I Install Sound/graphics Card/usb/cd Drive
i have a dell inspiron 9300 with xp. i bought it several years ago. it got a virus maybe a year ago and i reinstalled windows with a disk i got from dell in the mail. the only thing that was installed though was the operating system. i couldn't hear any sound, usb, cd/dvd drive wouldn't work, etc. i played around with some of the disks from dell but i couldn't figure it out. i put the noteback down and used my other computer for the past year. i want to get it running though. how do i install these things? i also cant find those disks so if its possible to do it without them that would be ideal...
Dell :: Vostro 1500 Monitor/graphics Card
My Dell Vostro 1500 has been behaving strangely. I have a problem which occurs sometime when I start it up.
When booting, the monitor does not turn on and it does not complete the start up (I can tell by the hard disk not being read). However, if I press the area to the right of the "Power" button (above the keys F8-F12, Num lk, Print Scrn, etc), the monitor turns on and it proceeds to boot. However, when windows starts, it suddenly gives a blue screen and says "Hardware Malfunction". I have no option but to shut down. If I try running diagnostics, everything shows it is running fine. I can also run Windows "Safe Mode".
I figured that if I press the area to the right of the "Power" button WHILE turning on the computer, it starts up normally. After that, it gives me no trouble at all.
I thought I was fine, until another problem came up. This time, when I start up, the monitor shows up as a white screen, but it seems to boot normally. I can even shut down with Alt+F4. I can run diagnostics and all, but I only get a white screen. Sometimes, I get a combination of this and the above problem.
After this problem, I shook my computer a bit, and managed to get it to start normally. I haven't shut it down (or hibernated it) as yet.
Can anyone suggest what I can do with my computer? I am afraid the problem might get worse. Should I have a replacement for my video card or video RAM ready?
