Acer :: Aspire 5580 CPU/memory Upgrades

Sep 18, 2007

I have a new(ish) Aspire 5580-6974 notebook:
Core 2 Duo (T5300) 533 MHz
1GB RAM, etc.

I just bought a 2GB DDR2 PC2-5300 dual channel memory kit; that should be a relatively simple upgrade.

I want to eventually upgrade the CPU to the T7600, which is 677 MHz. The intel 945GM chipset should support that, but is it just a matter of dropping in the new CPU? Or are there changes to be made on the motherboard (jumpers, etc)? There doesn't seem to be any such setting options in the BIOS.

Dell Vostro 1000 :: Indicates Charging But It Actually Isn't?

Feb 6, 2013

My Vostro 1000 has recently been failing to charge the battery. There's no adapter warning, no battery warning, nothing. It'll indicate that it's charging normally, so I will leave it overnight to charge only to find it deader than a doornail the following day. I typically shut it down when I'm not using it, so it's charging with the power off anyway.

The battery is a nine cell Rayovac COM 10025 and the chargers are both Dell PA-90s. I know one of the chargers has a break in the communication line, but I can still get it to charge the battery if I hold the wire just right as I put the plug into the computer. The other charger, which is my main one, seems to work OK.

When this happens, the laptop will not charge the battery at all until I pop the battery out and back in. The battery is only three months old, so I shouldn't be having trouble with it. The last battery, which had to be replaced under warranty, was the same model and had lost 2/3 of its capacity in less than a year.

Dell :: Completely Power Off The Vostro 1000?

Aug 1, 2009

How does one completely power off the Vostro 1000? When I hit the power button, it powers down but the battery light is still on.

Really, I am not an idiot, but shouldn't that go off too? I don't want to power off, take my computer somewhere and there is no juice because the battery took over and ran down.

Dell Vostro 1000 :: DVD / CD Player Doesn't Seem To Be Able To Burn Disk

Mar 9, 2013

On my Dell Vostro 1000 which is equiped with a TSSTcorp DVD+-RW TS-L632H ATA DVD/CD writer, it appears I can't write to disk anymore. I can still read DVDs and CDs without errors. Just when I attempt to burn disks, the drive fails with unspecified errors. One thing I noticied is that when I recently used Roxio to burn an ISO image to a CD, the operation completed. But when I reinserted the disk nothing was found on it. It appeared to be blank when reading it from the Vostro laptop. So, I inserted the disk into another DVD/CD drive on another computer. The CD appeared blank but when I tried to write to it from the other computer the pre-write check reported that only 13MB of space was available. So something was on the disk but it ws not visible to either computer. Weird. I tried cleaning the optics but the write operation still failed. Should I consider the drive dead?

Dell Vostro 1000 :: Windows 7 Not Detecting Battery Charge Properly?

Oct 19, 2010

I have a question regarding my Dell Vostro 1000's battery.

To start off, I did the recharge and discharge method and after that, when I disconnected the AC-Power, it only shows the "Total Battery Charge 100%" but the primary, it doesn't say anything. Plus, when it was unplugged, it stays at 100%. Few minutes later, it will drop to 7% and the Battery LED will flash orange to tell me that the battery is low.

And my Battery health is good, but why is Windows 7 not detecting the battery charge properly??

Snap-shot: [URL] ....

And there is no calibration tool in the BIOS?

Dell :: Buying A Vostro 3300, Memory And O

May 3, 2010

Im thinking on buying a Vostro 3300 from the Dell website.

Seems as a good lappy for editing text and watching some videos and movies.

How much ram can I add to it? Im planning on buying it with only 2GB and planning to upgrade it to its max. Which I don't know exactly what is.

Also it comes with Intel i3 350 M, any advice on this processor?
The default OS is Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit.

Considering the processor, should I upgrade the OS to 64 bit? Does that actually make a difference at all?

Dell :: Memory Speed Affecting Windows Experience (memory Operations)

Oct 13, 2008

A friend just showed me his new Dell Vostro lappy. He has 4 GB of DDR2 800mhz memory on it when compared to my 4 GB of DDR2 667mhz memory on my XPS 1530

However, under his windows experience score - he gets 5.9 score for memory operations while I just get a 5.1. I can't believe that a couple of hundred mhz can result in such a drastic difference.

Is there something optimized for his system but not for mine?

Dell :: E1705 Upgrades

Aug 16, 2007

problems getting Dell to tell me what I can or can't upgrade. It seems they will only let me replace parts.

Here is what I have:

Dell E1705
Core 2 Duo T5200 1.60Ghz
2 Gig of Ram
100Gig 7200 RPM
Nvidia Go 7800 (Before it was an X1400 but Dell changed it out after a request)

This is a system that replaced my old one through the warranty but I feel the need for more power out of it.

Dell :: E1705 RAM Upgrades

Jul 13, 2008

I'm looking to upgrade the RAM on my E1705. I already bought the 2500FX GPU, and I just want to do it all in one go. However, Dell's website is very confusing. I'm not sure WHAT Ram is compatible with my machine. All the RAM they have listed says 'For so and so computer', and I'm looking to use my Dell Account to buy the parts, So I just need a little help with this. Hopefully exchanging my card and my RAM will fix my NMI: Parity Errors when I'm playing World of Warcraft.

Dell :: M1730 Processor Upgrades

Nov 2, 2009

I just bought the Intel X9000 processor and was wondering if the processor alone will improve my graphics processing a little without getting the 8800m GTX card. I really do not want to pay for card with can cost as much as a new laptop. I got the processor under 500 dollars. Right now I installed Batman: Arkham Assylum and it plays good but there is room to get better on the response time. With the existing graphics card the game runs only with a slight lap but nothing that takes away from it. I am sure any online activity will be more prominent.

Dell :: What Upgrades For Basic M6400?

Dec 19, 2009

I just received a M6400 as a replacement for my damaged M90 and other than it having the 4GB of memory it's the most basic configuration. Harddrive is only 150GB.

It'll be used for some internet stuff, some gaming and at times at work running UG-NX.

If you'd be doing any upgrades, what would you do? I've never upgraded a laptop after I've received it and am not quite sure what would be reasonably easy and affordable.

HP EliteBook 8540w :: Identifying Correct Memory Slot For RAM Upgrade To Enable Dual Channel Memory

Jan 12, 2015

I just purchased a used Elitebook 8540w with i7 quad core and four memory slots (I love it!).  It is running 64 bit Windows 7 Professional  It came with one 4gb memory module and I purchased an additional 4gb module to bring total RAM to 8gb.  
I have the HP document that shows for two 4gb memory modules, one should be in memory slot 1 and the other in memory slot 3 for correct functioning of dual channel memory.  All set right?
Not quite.  In the Elitebook 8540w, the primary memory slots under the keyboard are clearly labeled "1" and "2"  However, the expansion memory slots on the underside of the chassis are also clearly labeled "1" and "2"  Opps!  There is no "3" and there is no "4"  In which of the unfilled three slots do I install the second 4gb module for correct functioning of dual channel memory?

Dell :: Upgrades (bluetooth + Cellular) For New M6400

Jan 24, 2009

I have an M6400 on the way that I just purchased from the Dell outlet (about 1500 cheaper then buying new with the outlet coupon).

I'm curious if anybody has any idea if the Wireless 410 Bluetooth + Ultra Wide Band Combo is useful at all. It's only about 19 bucks more then the straight bluetooth card so will probably get it anyway.

Also anybody ever transfer a cell card from one laptop to another (hoping to take the one out of my 1720)? It's Verizon so I don't have a SIM card to worry about, and it's a 5720 and Dell lists a Sprint 5720 on the parts page for the M6400 so I am assuming no compatibility issues.
