Dell :: Upgrading Motherboard In M1530

Jan 14, 2010

well since my 1-year warranty is coming to an end and the price of the warranty extension is ridiculous so I am planning on doing some upgrading on my M1530.


Now, firstly I do have the Nvidia Gefore 8400 128mb card and I do realize a lot of the 8600M cards had the faulty GPU.

But I am willing to take the risk and upgrade it, but searching ebay.com there are a lot of motherboards with all sorts of numbers.

Some are N028D, F125f, MU715, F124F and so on.

Dell :: XPS M1530 Motherboard Does Not Recognize The Hard Disk

Jan 24, 2010

My motherboard on a Dell XPS M1530 (configuration below) does not recognize the hard disk.

I checked the hard drive and it is working well so I concluded it is the motherboard. I need advise on how much a new motherboard would cost, which motherboard I need, and whether it is worth going through a repair/replacement.

I gave the laptop (it is out of warranty, but with the cause being water damage the warranty would most probably be void anyway) to a repair shop and they want $349 to attempt a repair or $149 to replace it with a new one (this does not include the cost of a new motherboard).

I was looking for one on ebay, however I am not sure if it will be compatible with my configuration.

I would appreciate if anyone who had the same problem or experience with a similar issue can provide any input. Here is the configuration: ...

Dell :: Upgrading M1530

Mar 13, 2009

He has an M1530 1.8ghz T5550. He plays alot of games on this. He recently got Empire Total War and it is running slow. He wants to upgrade his processor but I told him that probably would not help. The min. requirements for the game I believe was 2.4 single core and a 256 mb graphics card. I believe he has the Geforce 8400. What are your thoughts on this? Would upgrading the processor help?

Dell :: Possibility Of Upgrading V-card In Xps M1530 From ?

Jun 6, 2009

I'm in St-Jean QC at the military base and just before comming here I ordered my Dell XPS M1530 in january and got it shortly after. It came with 4 gigs of ram, the centrino duo-core 2.20ghz processor and the 128 ati card.

I had some negative experiences with the customer service from dell the first month I had it but I decided to let it go and enjoy the unit.

Has anybody ever called dell and had the unit sent back and had the videocard/motherboard upgraded for the 256mb version? I don't know if this is possible, and I'd love to call dell but I won't be able to after July 17th when I move onto my next base.

Dell :: M170 With Motherboard Or Gpu

Jan 15, 2008

i'm having trouble with my XPS m170.

It has:

Pentium M 760 2Ghz
1Gb Ram
60Gb HDD
Geforce Go 7800GTX 256mb
17" WUXGA
Windows Media Center 2005

I was playing CS:S, and all of a sudden i was getting artifacts on the display. Than the computer froze up and i had to power the laptop down manually.

I was able to restart the computer in safe mode a couple times.

But wow when i try to restart the computer, i'm getting artifacts on the Dell Splash screen. And then it would freeze up.

What do you think the issue is? At first i was thinking the GPU is the problem. But now i'm beginning to think its the motherboards.

Dell :: I9400M1710 Motherboard For LED's

Sep 6, 2007

I have recently put an M1710 LCD screen cover on my I9400, and the palmrest with the XPS logo in it.

I saw while I had my system apart my motherboard has the solder joints on it for the plugs for the LED's but no plugs for them(has them at the front for the speakers, next to the fans and next to the connection for the monitor).

Is it possible to solder the plugs on, will they work ?? I guess I will need a new BIOS for them ? anyone done it. Would appreciate any info/help. what plugs are they ?

Also is the XPS logo in the touchpad controlable ? mine isn't working at the moment (it's plugged in and was bought second hand but supposidly working ?) anyone know. I know others have done this mod.

Dell :: Motherboard Replacement, Anything New?

Feb 9, 2009

After some issues i had with my GPU, Dell agreed to replace both my Heatsink and Motherboard, and i wanted to ask those who have had replacements in the past; has anything changed since july 2008? (when i bought my m1530)

have they improved the heatsink, or even changed it? ( i got the aluminum one, crappy piece of engineering right there )
and im sure the GPU issues are still present, but do they run cooler now ?

im asking this because in July the "defective Nvidia GPUs" were still in the dark, and the news about them was a mere rumor...

Dell :: How Do I Identify My Motherboard

Jun 3, 2009

The motherboard on my XPS M1330 needs replacing for the second time. First time it was replaced under warranty, but my system is now out of warranty so I'm going to replace it myself.

I phoned Dell and they're charging 400 for a replacement but I can get it cheaper if I knew the Dell part number. I have the NVIDIA 8400M GS.

From doing some research, here are some part numbers for motherboards for XPS M1330's:

PU073
GM848
CX062
D057F
K984J

How can I check my existing motherboard's part number to ensure I order the correct part?

Dell :: Motherboard Downgraded?

Aug 6, 2009

Dell has replaced my SXPS 16s motherboard thrice in order to solve my overheating issues and some usb errors in the diagnostics and each time i have noticed that my motherboard has been downgraded.

The initial one was an A02, replaced by an A02 (new), replaced by an A01 (new), and then replaced by an A00 (refurbed).

All this hassle never solved my problems but introduced a new one - the sound latency issue. I just play a song in WMP and start browsing and the sound crackles and pops so badly that I feel like bloody throwing this thing out of the window, although I cant coz its darn expensive

Dell :: M1210 Motherboard Trouble

Sep 4, 2008

Has been soo long since I post anything on this great forum! I appreciate everyone's time here, and thank you all for taking some time to help me diagnose this problem. Anyways here is the problem:
I bought a "broken" Dell M1210 from ebay. The cosmetics of the laptop looks very good: no dents, few scratch marks, and almost no blemishes. It did not came with a hard drive, only an AC adapter.
Currently, I am trying to transfer ownership to me and will be trying to buy warranty for my m1210 once the transfer is complete. My m1210 is a little more then 1 month out of warranty coverage period.
I have completely disassemble the laptop and examine the motherboard, it looks and smells new. Internally, everything is very, very clean. The motherboard model of mine is HN110, the one that has the geforce 7400gs in it.
However, the batter is bad because it holds no power. I have tried on my friend's m1210 and checked it through Dell utilities and it gave a thumbs down.
I cannot confirm if the LCD, speaker, sound card, processor, system fan, heatsink, and camera are fine, or not.
I am able to confirm the ram, wireless card, and the CD drive are perfectly functional. I have yet to test those under performance conditions.
The main problems is:
I am unable to turn on the laptop.
I have tried 5 different adapters: 2 Dell m1210, 1 E1705, 1 E1505, and 1 Targus universal adapter. All of them do not work on the laptop.
When I plugged a Dell adapter into my m1210, the AC adapter shuts off. The green light on the Dell AC Adapter shuts off.
I tried my friend's charged battery to power up my laptop;however, my m1210 still will not power on.
I have not find a way to test the circuit board on my m1210 and my friend is very, very wary of me opening up their laptop. So anything that involves me trying different parts on his laptop will be almost impossible for me to ask for, he is a noob.

Dell :: Changing The XPS M1330 Motherboard

Aug 16, 2009

I recently bought the XPS M1330 from a friend and wasn't familiar with the current issues caused by the nVidia GeForce 8400M GS. Lately, I've been looking for a solution to the problem...

I was reading about the Cooper Mod in another thread and it just seems like a temporary fix...

So, I was wondering has anyone tried manually installing the Intel version of the motherboard, since it seems to have no overheating problems. Has anyone tried a different motherboard to fix the overheating?

Dell :: Looking For A Motherboard Diagram For My 1150

I took apart my Dell inspiron 1150 today & removed the fan & ordered a new one being it looks clean yet was not doing its job.

Yet then I noticed an empty slot in the motherboard & wondered what its for?

Does anyone have a picture of the motherboard explaining what the slots are for?

I'm sorta hoping it might be an empty memory slot that will allow me to add more.

Dell :: 1640 With A 1645 Motherboard

Feb 20, 2010

I was on chat with dell a few months back and I was telling them to replace my motherboard and processor and I was complaining about heat.

Anyway during the whole convo I was joking (not really) about giving me a 4670 motherboard instead of the 3670. Well I have had the parts for a month now and was just going to return them because

I didn't feel it would change anything replacing the same parts, knowing that the xps just gets warm on it's own. (and yes I undervolted, helped a lot and added more thermal paste)

Any to make a long story short the dell tech sent me a motherboard now with a 4670 ati chip on it. The processor was the same but man am I stoked.

Anyway is my computer a 1640 still or a 1645. Should I update any other drivers besides the video card. My service tag is irrelevant now also when downloading drivers.
