Dell :: Upgraded The E1705

Mar 10, 2009

Trying to let the AS5 set right now, hope the temps are lower than the other CPU since it was using one of those cheap cpu pad things.

Next on the upgrade list is the biggest 7200RPM drive that will fit.

Then another 2Gb of RAM for a total of 4Gb!

Dell :: E1705 Upgraded To 7900GS From X1400; Won't Accept Video Card

Oct 25, 2007

I've got an e1705, configured with an ATI x1400.

I bought the nVidia GeForce GO 7900GS to upgrade.

After installing, I get these blocks and pixels during boot (see photo below)

Vista begins to load but never makes it to the logo or login screens. I get a blue Memory Dump message for a split second and then the system reboots.

I reinstalled the x1400 after this happened. I ordered a replacement for the 7900GS but the replacement has the same problem.

This obviously isn't a driver problem since it happens during POST, before any drivers are even loaded.

why this would happen with two different 7900GS cards?

For the record, I'm a Dell Certified technician for the Inspiron series.

Dell :: Could I Get My Screen Upgraded?

Jul 24, 2009

I ordered my sxps 16 on the 10th with the 720 screen. It says it's still "In Production" and the ship date keeps getting pushed back (8/5).

If I called could I get them to upgrade to the new base screen for free, or does Dell not do that kind of thing?

I have a precision m70 and I wanted to know if I can use the geforce 6800go video card that was for an inspiron 9300? Also, can I use the 17" screen from inspiron 9300 or XPS gen 2 on a precision m70? I prefer to use the XPS gen 2 screen because of the darker bezel.

Dell :: M4400Just Upgraded From 4GB To 8GB RAM, Should It Take Much Longer To Boot?

May 11, 2010

Just upgraded the RAM in my new (to me) M4400 from 4GB to 8GB.

I notice it takes MUCH longer than it used to for the BIOS screen to finish before Windows can start to boot.

Once the BIOS screen is finished, everything is normal and Windows runs fine.

Is this normal?

Dell :: M6400 Upgraded To QX9300fan Too Loud

May 5, 2010

I searched but couldn't find anything on this. I had an 8600 processor originally and got a QX9300 for my M6400. Nothing else changed (yet) and I'm running W7. The fan hardly spun up to an audible degree with the 86, but now with the QX I hear the fan all the time...

Is this normal? I mean, I know it's a quad core vs. a dual core and the clock speed is slightly faster (2.53G vs. 2.4G). But I can just have the laptop sitting doing nothing and the fan is kicked up pretty much all the time....

Dell :: XPS M1530 -Upgraded To 7200rpm Difference..

May 29, 2009

I just upgraded from a WD 5400rpm HDD to a WD scorpio black 7200rpm HDD. Despite reading people saying it makes a noticeable difference...

I have yet to notice any difference in terms of access times and system performance.

Transfer times with my external HDD have decreased but apart from that, it all feels the same.

Maybe I expected too much but I'm kind of disappointed. Is it just me or has anyone else experienced the same

I have an XPS M1710 Core Duo, with an upgraded 7950 GTX GPU which I'm going to be changing to a Quadro 3500M for OpenGL.

If I change the CPU from a T2500(2 GhZ) to a T7600(2.33 GhZ). Will my Mobo run at 64bit or not? My brothers seems to think not, and I'm not sure on this one!.

Dell Precision M4400 :: Upgraded To SSD Drive - It Won't Work In AHCI Mode Only ATA

Dec 9, 2013

I installed a Samsung 840EVO 500GB SSD in my Precision M4400 last weekend. I managed to get it working but it only works in ATA mode. All others modes I tried brought me to the windows splash screen quickly followed by a blue screen that flashed so quickly I couldn't read it before the system rebooted. If I let it reboot it continues to do the same thing over and over. As I understand it I would really benefit from the performance AHCI offers, particularly when running multiple programs at once.

How I might get my drive working in AHCI mode?

Acer :: 5920G Upgraded To T9300

Apr 6, 2009

I just upgraded to a T9300 CPU, I bought it in ebay for £120 only, brand new (not an ES), and it is great. It is much cooler than the T7300 I had. Idle temp is around 32oC where before were around 40-42 oC. Of course I don't know if that was because I put fresh AS paste on the CPU where before the T7300, I think, had a thermal pad (melted on the core).

To be honest though, changing the CPU wasnít as easy as I was imagined. Unfortunately I didnít take any photos as I didnít know what I was doing but in the end all went well. I had to remove the graphic card and in order to remove the heat sink I had to remove a couple of other screws of the back chassis so I lifted it a bit to slide out carefully the heat sink. Then you remove the old CPU, clean the heat sink with ethanol and then place the new CPU, put some AS paste on the core and slide the heat sink in carefully and screw it tight on its place.

It is slightly faster in the games and much faster in using other software like movie maker. The games are running much smoother now but that is with games that are close to 21-24fps. World in Conflict uses a lot of that CPU. I ran the benchmark and with High physics and the CPU usage was 98-100%, both cores. During gaming is much less around 35%, explosions produce CPU usage spikes. Temp of CPU is around 65oC most of time during gaming, but it can go up to 68oC if you demand more from the CPU. My wPrime 32M score was 41s-42s with the T7300 and now is just below 30s (29.687s). My 3Dmark06 score increased as well from 4240 to 4567. I am very pleased with the end result.

Next thing is to upgrade to fast RAM like the 4GB (2x2GB) HyperX Kingston CL4 667MHz or 800MHz, then 320GB WD hard drive Black Scorpio and maybe try to upgrade to a new graphic card compatible with Acer 5920G with at least 512MB memory (9600M GS perhaps).

Sony :: Upgraded To Windows 7 And No Blutooth

Nov 3, 2009

I received my Windows 7 free upgrade disks today, and installed without any problems from Vista Home Premium 64 bit. I have a Vaio FW490. I also installed the Windows 7 companion dvd drivers which came with the Windows 7 DVD. I did an upgrade, not a clean install.

Everything ran smoothly, but for some reason my Logitech Bluetooth mouse is no longer recognized. I tried the add wireless device, without any success. I then tried to find the bluetooth drivers in the device manager without success. I would appreciate help in locating which driver I would download from the Sony site.

HP/Compaq :: Upgraded To T9900 With Dv4t

May 27, 2009

After three stripped screws and re-applying the thermal paste three times, I am now happy with upgrading to t9900 from t9950. Idle temps are just a few degrees higher then the t9550. Load temps are higher too. My gpu temps are now the same as before which is a miracle since there is only one heat-pipe and fan cooling everything (cpu, gpu, and chipset). Was it worth it? Yea, the upgrade gave me a great experience with my laptop. I can now open my laptop without looking at any documentation

Here are the pictures:

Acer :: 5920G Upgraded To...Radeon HD 4650

I do believe this is relatively big news...

Screenshots from here.

I admit that one should take this with a grain of salt but still, the fact remains that an upgrade path now exists for the previously-tricky 5920G, and possibly for ALL Acer MXM models!

Acer :: Aspire 5515 - Processor Can Be Upgraded?

Mar 10, 2009

I have an acer aspire 5515. Great machine for me. I am interested in finding out if the processor can be upgraded. It currently has a AMD Athlonô 2650e 1.6ghz in it. I have not been able to find information on the motherboard for this laptop. Acer site was not much help but I figured it was because the laptop came out around 12/09 but i dont no for sure. I happened upon the emachine site and there is one that looks exactly like it and has the same specs. So I have to wonder if this is an emachine with acer plastered all over it. Does anyone no what the motherboard model is or for sure what the highest processor i can upgrade to, if possible. I see where others say they have put higher processors in it but want to no for sure.
