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 :: New Vostro 1710 Gives Blue Screen (BSOD)

Dec 12, 2008

I bought a Dell Vostro 1710 because I needed a Windows XP notebook with a matte 17 inch screen. Only Dell and HP have such notebooks. The Dell Vostro 1710 is exactly what I need. But I got blue screens (BSOD). It happens complete randomly, sometimes after 1 hour, sometimes after 10 days. Dellís solution was that I had to reinstall Windows XP and the drivers, which cost me three hours work. After some days the blue screen appears again. Than I had to install Windows update, and new drivers from internet. Two hours work. No result. Than I had to remove the memory modules one by one and test again. No result. Each time I used the Vostro for one or two days before the blue screen appears again. Then Dell replaced the complete motherboard. After some days the blue screen appears again. Then I had to reinstall Windows XP and the drivers again, no result.

Three hours work. This al together cost me many days of work. Then I received another new Vostro 1710. I used it without problems for 10 days. Than the blue screen appears again. So there are already 6 weeks gone but I donít have a functioning Dell Vostro 1710 yet. Iím a programmer and have 20 years experience with PCís. I never had blue screens on my other PCís or notebooks. Who has the same problem with a new Dell Vostro 1710?

Dell Vostro 1710 :: Battery Not Charging - On AC Power?

Nov 8, 2010

I have a Dell Vostro 1710 laptop that was purchased in December 2008.

I am currently having problems however with the battery/charger. The battery does not charge except when I first plug it in.  The Power Meter icon shows that it is charging but only for up to 10 seconds, then the message then goes to "On AC Power"

I first noticed that the battery icon on the taskbar in Windows XP PRo SP3 was saying "ONn AC Power" but not charging. Sure enough, it wasn't charging. My colleague who has the same laptop purchased at the same order but does not have an issue.

I have done all the things you normally do to troubleshoot a battery including reboot, check for software updates, swap the battery with my colleague, swap AC adapter, even replace the battery with a new one yet I still have that issue. 

I have now noticed that it doesn't appear to be anything to do with Windows at all as when I power it down, plugging the charger in brings the charging light on for approximately 10 seconds, then the light goes out and the laptop doesn't charge.

This morning I tried a different battery that does charge into my laptop and had the same issue, which discounts it being a battery issue I think. I also tried downloading updated drivers from this website but again no joy.

Dell :: XPS 1710 Laptop, Dead GeForce Go 7900 GTX Video Card

Sep 13, 2008

I bought my XPS 1710 dell laptop about 2 yrs and some months ago at about ~$4, 150. About 3 weeks ago my GeForce go 7900 GTX died... I've never OC'd any device on my laptop and its been used in normal conditions..

Has anyone else had any problems with their GeForce go 7 series video cards?

did a clean install of Windows XP and this is what I get...

1. when my laptop boots up the bios screen comes up with a bunch of vertical lines...
2. when windows boots up there is a bunch of vertical lines...
3. simple vga mode works... no vertical lines...
4. when I try to install the drivers for the 7900 GTX I get a BSOD...

Warranty...
So far the video card has been backordered twice... when I get called again
and if its for the same reason I'm going to ask what the next course of action will be...

I doubt there are any remaing Geforce Go 7 series video cards...

Dell :: Upgrade A M1210 (2ghz C2D T7200) To A Vostro 1320 (T9550) 2.6ghz? Worth The Upgrade?

Jan 11, 2010

I have an aging M1210 with 2 gigs of ran, a OCZ SSD & the C2D 2ghz T7200 processor.

I wasnt really planning on an upgrade but the pricing looks pretty good.

I am not sure if its worth it though. My M1210 with SSD is amazing.

I just dont know if going from a 2.0 T7200 to a 2.66 T9550 is worth it or if i should wait longer for an I7 system in this size?

Apr 1, 2013

I have a Dell Vostro 3550 that I booted up this morning and received 8 beeps on startup with no video being displayed.  After reading the forums here is what I have done and the reults:

Boot up with External Monitor

Can log in and run computer, laptop still beeps 8 times for several times then stops beeping

Drain residual power from the laptop

Restart computer and still beeps 8 times without vidoe

Run LCD BIST

Nothing displayed.

Run F12 Diagnostics
Error Code: 2000-0415

I am assuming I have a faulty LCD Screen and/or cable but want to be sure of this before spending the money as this laptop is no longer under warranty.

Dell :: Vostro 1500 Processor Upgrade.

Feb 11, 2010

I am looking to upgrade my Vostro 1500 from a T5270 to a T6400. Does anyone know if this processor is fully compatible with the Vostro? It does have a Socket P setting.

The T8*** and T9*** all have the Socket P. The T64** came out after the 8's and 9's. I would appreciate any help. I don't want to go extreme with it and spend an arm and leg but just get a little boost. Also I know the T6400 will run cooler and use less battery.

Dell :: Vostro A860 RAM Upgrade And Vista-32

Feb 21, 2009

I am planing on getting this machine for my home office use. Couple of questions about RAM upgrade.

1. It comes with 2G RAM 1x2048MB stick; I wan to get this up to 4G; Has Vista-32 preinstalled. Will I be able to USE all 4G or less than that (I know Vista reports all 4G as installed), but does it it really use all 4G. Specs say max RAM is 4G. Is it worth getting this upgrade now, or

2. Should I just get the upgrade and when Windows 7 comes out, will it be able to USE the full 4G, even if 32-bit

Dell :: You CAN Upgrade Your Video Card

Jul 6, 2009

According to a Dell Rep at least.. This is mostly for the people who have the SXPS 16 with the 3670. I was speaking with a dell rep today and she told me that if I were to buy a 4670 and called tech support.

I could ask for their help to install the video card without voiding warranty. I don't know if this is true..

but does anyone know where to get a 4670 besides Dell's site where it's $109

Dell :: Vostro 1310 In Place Upgrade To ULTIMATE ?

Apr 1, 2009

note: my process below is for Australia where we do not have access to Microsoft's online AnyTime Upgrade for Windows products...

I'm in the process of purchasing a Dell Vostro 1310 on behalf of a family member who's just started University (College)

I've configured the one we want into a shopping cart at the Dell Store. However, it only comes with Vista Home BASIC included. I can upgrade it via Dell to Business or Ultimate for a further $237. I would rather have Home PREMIUM but Dell does not offer that for Vostro as it's a "business" system. That's fine. But Home Basic is not suitable.

Here is what I'm planning and I want to run it past the experts here before going ahead.

* Purchase the Vostro 1310 from Dell with HOME BASIC included in the price.
* Purchase ULTIMATE UPGRADE for $80 from MS via offer for ADDITIONAL PRODUCTS at the itsnotcheating.com.au site.
* Take delivery of the laptop from Dell with HOME BASIC pre-installed
* Use the ULTIMATE UPGRADE to do an in-place upgrade of the the pre-installed Vista HOME BASIC to ULTIMATE...

Dell :: Vostro 1320, Worth To Upgrade Webcam And HD?

Apr 15, 2009

I got a good deal on Vostro 1320 base model and just got confirmation from Dell Canada. Now can any one share your opionion whether it is worthwhile to add the integrated 1.3M webcam for $40 and upgrade HD from 160G 5400rpm HD to 250G 7200rpm HD with free fall sensor for $50 (all before tax)?

I might call them to see if they can manually upgrade for me.

I know I can upgrade the HD afterward, and I usually can find a good deal on 320G 7200rpm Hitachi HD for $70 or so if I can wait.

But my question is how difficult and how much hassle is to upgrade HD myself, and does that invalid the warranty, also what does the free fall sensor mean? Worth to have it?

I have a Vostro 1500 that is in excellent shape. It has a T7100 processor (Merom, 65nm, 2MB cache, 800FSB, 1.8ghz). Does anyone know how high I can go?

I think Merom processors go all the way up to 2.6ghz on the 800 bus, and can have 4MB cache.

Also, while I am here, has anyone upgraded to a SSD drive in place of the stock HDD? Will the bios accept it? Laptop was purchased in 2007, and I am on the original A01 bios

Dell :: XPS M1530 Video Card Upgrade

Jul 27, 2009

I bought my XPS laptop a couple of years ago and got it with the 128 mb GeForce 8400M GS.

I read on a couple of different websites that you could upgrade the XPS videocards on the XPS.

I went to the Dell website upgrade section and when I entered my service tag number, video cards wasn't an option to upgrade; though motherboards were.

Is it possible to upgrade the videocard to the 256 mb GeForce GT; which I should have purchased to begin with? Do I have to buy a new motherboard and put the 256 chip on it? Lastly, is the 256 the only video card I can buy to replace the 128?

Dell :: Studio XPS Can I Upgrade Video Cards?

Apr 25, 2010

Tomorrow I will be ordering the Dell Studio XPS 17.3" for 1.5k.

It comes with EVERYTHING I've always wanted such as i7, 1tb HD, blu ray, 6g ram, etc.

My only quarrel is the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4670.

1) Can this card handle all current games on high/max?

2) Can I upgrade it in the future by swapping it with something better?
