I just got the XBOX 360 Controller for Windows(controller with USB receiver)
i've read reviews that the USB receiver requires a lot of power for it to work correctly... i've tried plugging it directly to the USB slot on the m1330, but no 'new device' popup came up, and the USB receiver doesnt have the green light..
I am going to get an xbox 360 in the near future along with a vga cable to play it on my E1705's monitor. The monitor's native resolution is 1900 by 1200 so I was wondering if anyone has tried this before and if the 360 will look good on my laptop's monitor.
I'm a fairly advanced computer user (CS degree, etc), but I've had a horrible time trying to find a reasonably priced laptop that will run a 30" external monitor at 2560x1600. I finally decided if a an output other than DVI-D would work. I found the XPS 16 which looked like a really sexy laptop, and I checked to see that the the 4670 supports 2560x1600 in theory, and that the DisplayPort to DVI-D would work in theory. I found two other posters on a non-computer forum who said they ran 2560x1600 off an XPS 16.
I tried to verify with Dell that DisplayPort would support 2560x1600 with a DisplayPort to DVI-D adapter. I finally found a sales person that sounded reasonably intelligent, and had him contact tech support to verify that it would do so.
So, I started my XPS 16 a little over 24 hours ago, and the the reported resolution from the monitor is 1280x800, and I haven't found a way to override that in Catalyst. (and no, I wouldn't be happy with using a 1080p 12xx by xxxx resolution)
I've spent over an hour on the phone with tech support and can't get anyone that even seems to comprehend the issue (Are you sure your monitor supports that resolution? Is it turned on? Has it worked before at that resolution? etc.)
I THINK an issue is that the monitor is seeing the connection as single link DVI and so only reporting 1280x800, but I don't know....
I recently got a Studio 17" WUXGA screen and as i was testing out my computer and following Les's removal bloatware guide [big thanks] and reading many of the posts in the Studio owners thread I tried to identify my screen.
I just bought a Dell Studio XPS 16 second hand, advertised with an RGBLED screen.
The laptop works great but I am very sceptical about this display, all the reviews harp on about how amazing it looks but I can't really see much of a difference between this screen and my WLED monitor.
My laptop is dell studio 1450.display is broken and drivers corrupted.i use a external moniter. power on button pressed the led's on.but external disply didn't show anythig.How to Run BIOS via external screen?
I recently just purchased and received a fancy Dell e6400 from one of the many dell deals. My eyes are light sensitive from looking at many computer screens over the years and due to this I avoid LCD screens and much prefer flat CRT monitors. My goal is to use the e6400 as my workstation computer while using the VGA out to power my 19in Sony CRT .....
i dissasembled my presario cq60 and when i put it together the monitor won't activate.
i tried using an external monitor and the monitor refused to turn on from standby, a safety feature of the monitor. the small card in the underneath with 2 wires leading 2 the monitor, (i assume that is the laptop version of a graphics card) is fine, inserted properly, and i had a slight issue with the plugs fitting, but that was soon resolved.
I have an HP DV 6000T. I just bought a HP Elite M9510f Desktop from HP.com, and I don't have a monitor yet, so I am trying to connect my Desktop VGA to my Laptop VGA in and use my DV6000T as a monitor.
I also have a Sharp TV which I tried using as a monitor but the thing keeps flashing the Power and OPC lights and won't let me see anything.
Anyway I can make my Laptop monitor work with my desktop for the time being?
I have a problem with my dell e1705 laptop. I was trying to set up an external monitor, after installing the drivers that came with the monitor i couldn't get the laptops internal monitor to start back up. I tried restarting with the external monitor unplugged but the laptops screen just glows with no picture. can anyone tell me how to enable my internal monitor? Only the external monitor shows up when i try to switch displays in the nvidia controlpanal.
So I have been looking into something bigger than a 17' (yes i know im getting greedy as far as size) However Im not sure of the quality, performance and other things and was wondering if you guys could fill in the gaps.
Will be used for -Light gaming, but i definately want a low 'response time' -Watching movies -Browsing internet
My main questions are. -what is a good 'response time'?
Ive seen 2ms, 5ms as the lowest times and im guessing these times are more than reasonable for playin a few games.
-Will a 7900GS be strong enough to handle displaying a resolution of say 1600x1200 or 1920x1200 and play a game or two w/o any issues?
I wish I had found this place before I purchased my new Dell, I had an old dell xps laptop maxed out and never had an issue with it and after 4 years sold it on ebay for 800.00. bad decision.
What to do what's done is done, my question is, On my old dell xps i use to use a program to monitor the temp and was able to bring it down 3 degrees by changing the thermal compound.
Before I do anything with this beautiful looking studio xps. I would like to know if and what people are using to monitor the temperature. I have installed speedfan and it seems ok but as we all know with dell systems they like to make it difficult for us to monitor the temps.
I checked the logs on speedfan and did not see anyone else posting settings for the studio xps .....
I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 purchased in 2005, running Windows XP SP3. Just recently my video screen started turning off after a few minutes from logging in. I have tried using the function key along with thr F8 button, but it does not seem to work.
a couple of months ago my brother bought a big HDTV to use as a TV and a monitor. To me it didn't look good at all, it's hard to describe but it just didn't look proper. Since then we recently got one for the living room too, and I have to say I'm very disappointed. It looks the same as my brothers, kind of fuzzy, like the FPS isn't as good, and rather pixelly :S and this is when watching TV. Our old school TV looked 10 times better. Also, when hooked up to my M1710 it looks absolutely horrible, even at 1900 res.
I've got a e1705 with a FX 2500M in it . 2G of ram, and a T2400 intel processor.
I got a copy of Neverwinter Nights 2 for free, so I went to play it. I was cruising along making my character, when my laptop shut off! I restarted, and it said it stopped because of temperature. So, I started up core temp so I could watch the temp, and restarted the game. Once I got into the game, and it's all that was running, neither of my cores went above 110 degrees F. Then, it shut down again. I was not running all the 'options' to make it pretty, but I was running it at 1920x1200. I dropped it down some so I could monitor the temps (same ratio, just a little smaller).
I updated my drivers to the newest MovileForce Drivers, and want to retest, but figured I'd also watch my card temps, to see if that was causing the shutdown?
I installed fangui, and no gpu temp is listed. I also was going to try nvtemplogger, but it said something like my card isn't capable of temperature monitoring?
So, how do I monitor it? Does my card have the ability to output it's temp to one of the tools?
i'd like to know what kind of temps to expect from a normally working card.
What are your temps on idle (normal room temp 20c-30c) and what are the max temp it reaches when say we run the ati tool graphical view. (Just for reference - when idle, ATI Tool reports 65c on my card, and after running the 3d view of ati tool the card will reach 104c).
I'd like everyone who has that info to post it here and i'll do the math and calculate the avarage working temp of that card.
Since different monitoring progs report different tempratures please state which program is reporting the temps.
