Dell Vostro 1700 :: Very High Temps

Jan 29, 2013

My friend bought a Vostro 1700 a few years ago and now i own it, but in the last 6 month or so the temps are going through the roof, i switch it on and it starts off at about 72 degrees then just goes up to about 86 and stays there, i cleaned the fan, the vents and even put a new blob of thermal paste on the cpu but it still does the same. I just did the Dell PC Diagnostic test and it says there are no hardware problems at all..

Dell :: New Vostro 1700, LCD Looks... A Little Off

Aug 3, 2007

I just got my new Vostro 1700 with the WUXGA panel, and something just looks.... well, I don't know how to explain it. The left edge of the screen, about an inch in or so, just looks... a little... I guess washed out might be the proper term. The colors don't look as bright, and I feel as though I can almost... see the pixels refreshing or something...

Is this a problem, or a known issue, or something I should be concerned about?

Dell :: M6400 Temps, GPU Too High?

Feb 28, 2009

I am noticing my second m6400 (Qx9300, Nvidia 3700, Vista64 Ultimate, A03 bios) is behaving differently than the first. The fan is pulsing on and off at idle (left hand fan) and it's driving me nuts.

I checked with speedfan and HWmonitor and notice that it idles 59-61 degrees celsius. I think this appears to be a lot hotter than other's temps I see here. (I saw someone mentioning they idle @ 39C)

Dell :: High GPU Temps On M1530

May 5, 2009

It seems my idle GPU temps are pretty high. I just embarked on a mission to clean my fan out. I believe I was successful, but the whole thing was a little out of my comfort zone.

I'm now experiencing slightly cooler GPU temps i think (around 42-46 C at idle) but the GPU temp at idle is at a very steady 68 - 69 C, and the fan just keeps running all the time. Maybe I should have paid more attention to what the temps were beforehand, but it's too late for that.

Was wondering if this was something to be concerned about. Do I possibly have a bad contact between the thermal system and the GPU, and should I try and connect it more securely?

Dell :: Vostro 1700 Dead

Dec 8, 2009

My Vostro 1700 just shut off last night and it seems dead to me, just checking that there is nothing else I can try to try and revive it.

basically all that happens now is the power light flickers for a few seconds and then the battery indicator and then it just goes off. The hard drives don't spin up and the screen doesn't come on......

Dell :: Vostro 1700 Upgrade Help

Apr 6, 2010

i need to upgrade my processor (T5600 at 1,6ghz) and i read here than the ideal processor is T9300, but is lot more expensive than T9400 or T9500.
I some forum speak about this processors aren`t compatible with Santa Rosa chipset...

what about Bus speed (800 vs 1066mhz) i'm confused about that.
I'm in Chile and here is really expenside this processor (T9300 U$500). Newegg don't sell to international consumers...

amazon is ideal for me because i buy a lot of time there . the option are T9500 U$370, T9400 and 9600 U$340, T9300 U$450!!!!, T8600 U$218

Dell :: Studio 1555 High Cpu Temps?

Apr 12, 2010

Running a t6600 2.2ghz c2d.

Wondering if these temps are acceptable in a laptop or not?
Temps idling 3-10% cpu = 57-67C
Fan feels the need to go into hairdryer mode every 5 minutes or so to bring the temp down a few C.

under load core 1 + 2 = 100%
core 1 = 88-90C
core2 = 90-92C

Also i will add this is currently in a very cold room.


would you say these are acceptable temps or not?

also not overly impressed with the build quality. keyboard bezel popping out in certain sections after 4 months.

Dell :: M1530 Extremely High Cpu Temps 95+

Oct 13, 2008

My cpu core hits the mid 90's when gaming. i undervolted it to 1100v @ 11x and the temps only hit the high 80's/low 90's during gaming but hit the mid nineties in orthos and was still going up.

This is getting me down a bit cus the cpu ramps down during gaming and screws up the fps, and also im outside of the uk so cant get my laptop to dell (there are no dell suppliers where i am)

does anyone have any idea what might be wrong. am i reading the temps correctly? speedfan shows much lower temps (in the 70s) however cpuz, rightmark and hwmonitor all show temps consistent with eachother.

Its a t7500.

there's nothing blocking the outake at the back; i lifted the laptop up during orthos to let air out of the bottom but it didnt make any difference.

I've built a few desktops but i havent really tinkered with this laptop apart from adding more ram.

Dell :: Inspiron 9300 And Vostro 1700

Oct 6, 2007

First, for any Vostro 1700 owners: anyone done a dual-250GB config either factory or upgrade?

Second, how far can I take my non-SATA 9300? I've been reading some of the parts-swap threads and getting some ideas, as shown in my sig. What's the top CPU I can drop in, and was there a 9300/XPSGen2-compatible (well, retrofittable, anyway) version of a GeForce Go 7800GTX? Also, anyone using Sound Blaster Audigy Software Edition on one of these big beasts?

Dell :: Vostro 1700/ Inspiron 1720

Jun 8, 2008

-What is the maximum CPU available?
A: These laptops support Penryn which means that the Core 2 Duo T9300 and even the Core 2 Extreme will fit in this machine, although the latter is not available from Dell as an option when purchasing these laptops.

-What is the maximum amount of RAM supported?
A: 4GB, but Vista 32bit only recognizes 3.581GB. To take advantage of the full 4GB, you need to upgrade to a 64bit OS.

-What is the best video card available?
A: The 8600MGT is the best one available from Dell so far.

-Can I upgrade the video card?
A: As of right now the 8600MGT is the best video card available for these machines, although if you have the 8400MGS you can upgrade to the 8600MGT. If you have the Intel graphics unfortulately you cannot upgrade them.

-Do these laptops have a DVI port?
A: Unfortunately they do not have DVI ports.

-Can these laptops be ordered with Windows XP?
A: The Vostro 1700 can be ordered with XP but unfortunately the 1720 cannot. Dell will stop selling Genuine Windows XP on June 18th.

-What is the best hard drive available?
A: 320GB is the biggest you can go atleast if you order it from dell.com I'm sure that websites such as NewEgg have better deals on bigger drives.

-Is Blu-Ray available on these laptops?
A: No, at least not from Dell.

-How do these laptops do when it comes to gaming?
A: I can play Crysis on near-max settings in DX9 mode. DX10 mode is playable but the settings have to be pretty low. Games like Gears of War and Bioshock can play perfectly on DX10 Mode and X-Plane 9 can play fantastic with everything topped out.

-What is the best screen available for these laptops?
A: WUXGA with TrueLife

-What is the best warranty available for these laptops?
A: 3 Year ProSupport for End Users and 3 year NBD On-site service

-Would I recommend purchasing one of these laptops?
A: Definitely because I think you get a lot of computer for the money.

Dell :: Windows 7 On Vostro 1700 Laptopscreen Drivers?

Oct 27, 2009

I've installed Windows 7 on my 1700, and it's all installed fine. I have the latest video drivers from nVidia, and all the others from Dell.

The only thing that I'm not sure about is that under Device Manager for the actual monitor (on the laptop) it just shows as generic PnP monitor. Should it not have a specific drivers for best results?

Dell :: Upgrade The Vostro 1700 Video Card

Nov 29, 2007

I want to upgrade the DELL vostro 1700 video card (8600M GT). I was thinking for a GeForce Go 7950 GTX (possibly SLI) or a 8800 GTX (again, possibly SLI). Perhaps evena Quadro FX 3500M could be suitable (if there are modifications of drivers in order to play with games).

Dell :: Which Hard Drives Will Work In A Vostro 1700

Jan 17, 2009

I have two seperate questions to ask, so will post them seperately.

I have a Vostro 1700 with a 250gb drive in it. When I bought it I had a problem with the laptop and managed to get a hard drive caddy free from Dell, so just need the drive. I know it needs to be a SATA 2.5 drive, but will any drive fit, or do I need to go for any specific ones? Is the Vostro SataII?

HP/Compaq :: DV2 - Temps A Little High After Updating

Jul 22, 2009

Alright, so to start off I'll just say that I love the DV2. I bought the dual core version loaded when it first went up for customization at the HP site. I have, however, noticed that it can run a tad hot.

When I first got it, without a cooler, the CPUs usually went from between 41c-45c from light usage, and the GPU from between 51c-55c. Even when propping the back up I only saw a drop of 1c total. I bought a small cooler for it and saw a fairly good drop. The temps of the CPU where down to 36c-39c and the gpu was down to 45c-49c with both sometimes even going lower depending on how much the AC in the house was on.

I did try some gaming on this, playing some HL2. The CPU got to 60c at the highest and the GPU also only got to about 60c while on the cooling pad.

So, a few days ago I updated my BIOS to the latest on for the DV2 from the HP site. I noticed right away that my temps where higher. The temps while on my cooler where the same as they used to be without it, and with the cooler off the GPU was getting up to 60c while at idle. I tried a few things, like setting the GPU to low power mode with the Catalyst controls, but that didn't help.

Not sure what to do I noticed this morning that I hadn't gotten SP2 for Vista yet. So I decided to get it in hopes that it would help.. now my DV2 is even hotter. On the cooling pad my CPU was at around 60c and GPU was at 65c while at idle. I've had it on all day, with all the vents in my room open and the AC up high and the lowest it's gotten is to 50c for the CPU and 55 for the GPU.

Dell :: Vostro 1700 Vista Booting To Black Screen

Dec 5, 2009

I've a wee problem here and I'm not sure if there's anything else that I can do with it. It's a Vostro 1700 and it passes POST fine.

Vista starts loading as evidenced by the scrolling bar, but then instead of going to a logon screen,

I just get a black screen with a moveable mouse pointer, nothing else. Hard disk activity comes to a halt.
