Dell :: Studio 15 Changing The Processor + Graphics Card

Nov 18, 2008

I'm currently wondering how easy (or even if its possible) changing the processor in a studio 15 would be.

Secondly i'm curious as to expensive a new processor would cost, 2.5GHz preferably as my current processor is 2.0GHz.

My second question is: Can the graphics card be changed without soldering in the studio 15. I'm unsure whether the graphics card is integrated or not.

My current graphics card is: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3450 (256mb)

I was wondering how much a new card would cost and the difficulty to replace.

HP/Compaq :: Changing Graphics Card From Dv9000 To Dv6000

Jan 23, 2009

I bought a dv9000 about two years ago and recently the motherboard died. Since I'm not exactly rich at the moment I haven't bought a new laptop, but instead my father gave me his dv6286 because choose to upgrade.

But the geforce 7200 in the dv6268 isnít any good for gaming, so I though if it was possible to take my geforce 7600 from the dv9000 and put it in the dv6286.

Dell :: Vostro 1500 Monitor/graphics Card

Jan 25, 2009

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?

Dell Vostro 1015 :: Graphics Card Is Not Working?

May 22, 2012

I have a Dell Vostro 1015 Laptop and the graphics card is not working for me. I know it has a built-in graphics card and there is nothing i can do about that but is there any type of external add-on type of thing for a graphics card ? For example, a supplementary graphics card that is plugged in through USB or another input.

Dell Vostro 1540 :: Turns On Same Time Every Day

Apr 21, 2013

My Dell Vostro 1540 , which I turn off every night - NOT standby or hibernate -- boots up at exactly 14:10pm every day.

If the power supply is not connected it doesn't --- that is until I plug the power supply in at anytime past 14:10pm then it boots up without touching the power button.

The bios is current - looks very basic - and there are no timers or wake up commands set anywhere I can see.

In fact I can't see ANY settings that can be altered by "time".

I have restored factory bios defaults with same result. Is there access to a hidden menu for power settings in the bios somewhere.

Dell :: XPS 1330 Integrated Vs Discrete Graphics

Nov 4, 2007

I'll be buying an XPS M1330 soon. The only option I'm still confused on is the graphics card. I'm not a gamer and battery life is important to me as I'm on the road every week for work. However, with Vista now - which I have no experience with - is it true that you need a discrete graphics card to efficiently run Vista (and I guess certain options such as Aero).

Specifically, my questions are:

1. Will an integrated graphics card impair the ability to use Vista in any way and, if so, how?

2. What's the difference in battery life when using a dedicated vs integrated graphics card? I.e., how much extra battery life will I gain by choosing integrated?

3. Will an integrated graphics card cause my system to just not operate as efficiently in general - just every day navigating even - since Vista relies so heavily on graphics? And, if so, how does any inefficiency manifest itself? Slower time bringing up screens? Computer running hot because of a strain using graphics?

Acer :: SiS M760GX Integrated Graphics In Aspire 5002LMi

Dec 13, 2007

The one component of my Acer Aspire 5002LMi notebook that defies upgrade is the SiS M760GX integrated graphics. Otherwise, I've been very happy with the unit. Processor, hard drive and ram upgrades were easy. Is anyone aware of any tweeks that can be done to get the most out of this weak integrated graphics platform? Suggestions appreciated as I intend to keep the unit in service for a long time using XP Pro since the graphic won't handle Vista. Obviously, not a gaming machine but it will handle some older games.

Acer Aspire 5002 LMi: AMD Turion ML 37; Hitachi 80 gb 7200 rpm drive; 2 gb pc2700 DDR ram; Lugano M motherboard with SiS M760GX integrated graphics

HP/Compaq :: Intel Integrated Graphics Coming Back To Dv7t

Feb 13, 2009

I actually want the Intel Integrated graphics for the dv7t. This was offered a couple months ago but now the only options are for NVidia chips. Will the integrated graphics ever come back or are they gone for good?

Also, what happened to the regular edition dv5t? The special edition is nice and all, but I don't care about the fancy case. Are the new low-resolution 16:9 laptops taking over completely?

HP 17-e049wm Display :: Increase Shared Video Memory For Integrated Graphics?

Aug 22, 2014

I have just recently purchased an HP 17-e049wm. This laptop has the AMD Radeon HD8650G integrated graphics with up to 4206MB of total memory. I understand that this graphics "card" uses the onboard memory to act as video memory. How can I increase or decrease the amount of memory allocated to the graphics? I don't seem to be able to make any changes from the BIOS. Is this something that adjusts automatically?

Acer Aspire 3830TG-6494 :: Crashes While Gaming Using Either Integrated Or NVidia Graphics

Feb 3, 2015

Acer Aspire 3830TG-6494 crashes while gaming.
 
Crash symptoms:

-happens anywhere from within the first 15 minutes to several hours into a game (no link to graphic quality settings). No loss in performance leading up to the crash.
 
-screen glitches and goes black, with a brief buzzing sound. Power remains on and fan is still running, forcing a hard reset. 
 
-Occasionally the sceen will freeze, ~1cm horizontal green lines will appear all over and a loud buzzing sound is emitted from the speakers until a hard reset. 
 
-Rarely I get a BSOD or the computer will shut down and restart itself. Resulting DMP files show no consistent suspected cause.
 
-Crash will occasionally be preceded by certain in-game sounds cutting out. But not always.
 
-The only link between crashes is that I'm usually thinking a solution worked right before the crash. (Frustrating!)
 
-System will occasionally crash while  watching videos or something, but only crashes consistently while gaming.
  
I have tried the following: 

-Running games using only the integrated graphics or nVidia GeForce GT 540M GPU.
 
-Underclocking either the GPU(500MHz and 700MHz, from 672MHz and 900MHz), the CPU (seting max 70% power plan), and both simultaneously. 
 
-Temperatures do not exceed 70C under heavy use, and crash does not seem to be linked to any temperature increases. 
 
-Run both Windows 7 memory diagnostic and memtest86 (no problems found)
 
-Run intel CPU diagnostics and intel XTU benchmark which did not cause a crash. 
 
-Upgrading all drivers to latest versions, as well as rolling them back to the versions recommended on acer download website. (Completely uninstalling graphics drivers before re-installing different versions) And making sure windows update was not automatically installing driver updates.
 
-upgrading BIOS to v1.12, it was stable for a weekend then went back to crashing.
 
-The system seems to be more stable in power saver or balance mode, but not  by much. I also suspected the Ac power adapter because it didn't seem to crash on battery for a brief time. But I was wrong and it did end up crashing whether plugged in or not. 

Aand cleaning it out w/ compressed air, obviously ... I don't game often, and usually play older games on lower quality settings. I'm not overclocking or streaming at the same time.

I have an aspire 4745G which AMD Radeon Graphics might somehow be corrupted, and so ever since I was using the Intel dedicated VRAM, However I have accidentally changed graphics from switchable to discreet in BIOS and after restart all I get is black screen. I tried resetting the BIOS by shorting the jumpers beneath the WLAN card as per the manual but its still no good. The only thing it does after turning it on is that the HDD LED lights up for a second and then gone all black screen ...

Apple :: 15" Macbook/Macbook Pro With Integrated Graphics For Less

Mar 7, 2009

I have been speculating over this prospect giving the direction that Apple took with the starting price of the 24" iMac (upgrade everything else and downgrade the VRAM).

I mean, this is something I would like to see, but I wonder if it is a smart move on Apple's part given how much they make off the current MBP's with the so called Apple Tax.

And, if they made this move, one has to wonder if it still would be considered a Pro.

I have a Vostro 3700, i7,  8GB RAM, with Nvidia GeForce GT 330M.

When I run the "PC Check up" hardware test for the graphics card, the laptop shutdown a few seconds after the test is initiated.

I have cleaned the fan and replaced the thermal paste to avoid overheating. The laptop is not too hot when this happens.
