Dell XPS L502X :: Crashes / Freezes During Game Play

Aug 5, 2011

I bought a Dell XPS 15 (L502X) laptop 2 weeks ago and have found a lot of trouble with it. It is an i7, 8gb ram with the nvidia 540m video card.

I have tried 3 different games, Left 4 Dead, League of Legends and Dragon Nest, and it crashes/freezes in all 3 games. You are able to run the game in high graphics however, it will crash in a shorter amount of time. If you put it on lowest quality, it still crashes, but it tends to take a longer time.

Things that I have tried.

- Old Drivers, New drivers, drivers from the dell site, drivers from nvidia, beta drivers

- driver sweeper

- changing the gpu to nvidia high performance instead of integrated graphics for the different games and programs

- changing the physx hardware to nvidia 540m

- set battery to high performance

- dell tech support, all they did was change integrated to nvidia high performance and change one setting in hopes of fixing the issue as well as using the system scan for issues, the report came back as passed and no issues.

And today while I was messing around with the settings, I have found a mediocre alternative to this problem. If you simply never use the nvidia GPU then there will never be a crash. You simply do everything  with your integrated card. You will be able to run a game like League of Legends on Normal settings at best. However if you do this, it is as if you wasted all your money to get the nvidia 540m that simply does not work.

Dell Inspiron 15r 5520 :: Crashes When Running Game And Hangs Up

Mar 2, 2013

I purchased an inspiron 15r 5520 a few months ago. I ran assassins creed 3 on it and have run into some problems.

Now I read a lot about this problem on other forums. Whenever I run the game it crashes after some time and hangs up my computer too. Many think its because the dedicated graphic card (Radeon 7760M).

Dell XPS 15 L502X :: Laptop Hanged Down After 5-10 Minutes Of Playing Game

Jan 1, 2013

Configuration: 2nd gen i7,4GB RAM DDR3 1333MHz,750 GB(7200rpm) HDD, nVidia GT 540M 2GB DDR3 I bought a Dell xps 15 laptop with above configuration on August,2011 with an intention to play latest games.

I played Split/second, NFS:the run ,Max Pyne and recently NFS:most wanted. Split/second and most wanted runs on intel HD with sluggish graphics performance. But the run does not run intel hd,it requires discrete graphics. When I switched to nvidia graphics, every time the game computer hanged down after 5-10 minutes of playing the game. Computer screen froze and sound was looping. Control+Alt+Del didn’t work at this occasion.

I had to manually restart my computer. And a point here,there is over heat beneath the laptop though I use Logitech laptop cooler. Games run on nvidia on battery for about 20 minutes on battery power and heat produced under the laptop was also less. This thing happened with every game I listed above and some other graphics demanding games also. Same games worked fine on my friends Dell inspiron 15 laptop with an 2nd gen i5 ,4gb ram and nvidia gt525m 1gb ddr3 graphics card. And of course,these games were installed from same setup file those I used to install games on my computer. So,there can’t be problem with games file itself.

I called Dell xps premium customer support over phone. They told me to install all latest drivers and bios. I did all the things they told. They also remotely diagnosed my computer but nothing good happened. I then went to dell service Centre at Kolkata. I showed them the problem by playing games before themselves. They reformatted and installed all the things again and changed my harddisc. But my problem was not solved. I contacted service Centre again. But they found no problem after diagnosing my computer. But games did not run. In a nutshell, through a span of 1 year my problem could not be solved. And my warranty period has also expired.

Gameplay seems to work better for some reason.

I really think the vent being partially occluded by the screen causes the system to throttle.

Dell XPS 17 L702x :: Extremely Hot Case During Game Play

Jun 8, 2012

My problem is that the laptop is getting extremely hot on the left side of keyboard during any games i play, even older games. I literally cannot rest my left hand to use keyboard as it is frying it.

When i initially bought the laptop 4 months ago I could play those games and the case (keyboard area including) would stay perfectly cool. I had even played need for speed hot pursuit new with full graphics and laptop was cool.

There is a definite massive difference in case temperature between initial month or so and recently.

HW monitor program recorded temperatures of 85 degrees max for i5 processor, and around 72-78 degrees on graphics card during game play on a variety of games old and new.

Worth to mention that during other lightweight activities, such as surfing etc the laptop is cool.

Dell XPS L702x :: Slowed Down When Playing Video Online Or Play Game

Feb 4, 2013

My XPS L702x recently slows down when i play video online or play game. My configuration is: i7 2630QM, GT555M, 6 GB.i played video online and played game ( Skyrim, COD, A.V.A online) smoothly. But for 2, 3 months ago, my laptop slows down and spikes very much. When i watch video online, the screen will freeze 3 to 8 seconds but the sound is still playing. And all games that have run smoothly before, now they lagged too much, for example in Skyrim, when i start a conversation with a NPC, the game will freezes 2,3 seconds, and in the combat it freezes everytime when there's a sound is played (i.e screams, sound of sword slashing, footstep).

I have Microsoft Security Ess, no Semantec, Kaspersky, Norton ... And i have re-installed the Win 7 ultimate, but nothing is fixed, i've updated all my drivers, BIOS, Graphic card, sound card, wifi.i can't do anything with my laptop now, even opening Google Chrome is not easy. I'm really stressed.My battery is broken, i use my laptop on AC adapter only, perhaps this is the cause but i don't think so. Because i have a HP Pavillion and the battery is out too, but the HP is not slowing down.

Dell XPS L502x :: Sometimes Stops For Few Seconds Whenever Play Video Or Listen To Music

Mar 5, 2013

I purchased my laptop from Frys electronics June of last year. For the past few weeks, whenever I play video or listen to music, it sometimes stops for a few seconds, plays some sound that sound like static feedback then continues as normal. I have no clue what the issue is. What could it be, and should I send my beloved PC in to get it looked at?

Since I bought it, I have manually put in a Blu-Ray burner, has this affected my warranty?

I also upgraded from windows 7 to windows 8

Dell :: Updates Done And Now XPS Hangs/freezes

May 19, 2009

Ok here is what I did yesterday. Downloaded 4 updates for the XPS 1530:

- Blutooth software
- A12 BIOS update
- NVIDIA 185.85 driver
- NVIDIA PhysX 9.09.0408

I first installed the blutooth, everything was running fine. Then went ahead with installing the gpu driver and then physx driver. Finally I go ahead with the A12 bios update (was running on A09 before this).

I restart the computer, and everything loads up just fine. I noticed the fan kicking in though but no biggie..

I can open up firefox window no problem. It's only when I access my documents (D) or My Computer or C: the computer freezes (not responding msg). The fan kicks in at this moment and waiting 10 more minutes doesn't solve anything so I have to force shut down the laptop. Is it the bios update which is doing this or Nvidia drivers?

Dell Inspiron 1520 :: Restored But Hangs During System Boot

Dec 21, 2014

Laptop has not been used regularly for quite a while.  The system booted up fine and loaded Windows Vista with no problem.  Everything seemed to be in working order.  Decided to wipe the system, load productivity applications,  and give it to my grandson who is starting college. I depressed the F8 key during start up and entered the recovery routine.  I selected the "restore to factory settings" option. 

The system indicated it was first formatting the drive and then restoring the system.  When I restarted the computer I got to the Dell Boot Screen.  Displayed on the screen is the Dell logo, "Inspiron 1520 Series", progress bar, and "BIOS Revision A03".  The progress bar fills from left to right and restarts the process in a perpetual loop.  When I power the system off the on; the first boot cycle seems to take a lot longer for the progress to fill, but after that it loops with the progress bar filling quickly.The system no longer responds to the F8 key being depressed during start-up. 

Consequently, I can not repeat the "Restore to factory settings" process. I have tried to boot the system several times with the same results.  When I press F12 during and get "boot options" choosing "Internal Hard Drive" or "Onboard NIC" makes no difference.  When I run the diagnostics option from the F12 screen; the system displays the heading: "Pre-boot System Assessment Build 4106" and passes all tests.

It appears to me that the recovery to factory settings routine has in some way damaged the system.  It had been working fine before the procedure and hangs during boot afterward.  How to get the system back into proper operating condition with the factory settings restored.

Dell Inspiron 7347 :: Mouse On Touchpad Hangs Up Intermittently

Jan 5, 2015

I have had my Inspiron 7347 for a few days.  When operating on the battery, the touchpad exhibits some quirks that make this P:C extremely hard to use as a portable laptop.

The mouse on the touchpad hangs up intermittently, sometimes for several seconds.  This erratic behavior makes using the mouse terribly difficult.

When scrolling using the mouse on a vertical scroll bar, the right click menu for the desktop keeps popping up.  I must move the mouse away from the scroll bar, left click to get rid of the right click menu, and return the mouse to the scroll bar.  Sometimes this behavior is constant when scrolling through a long page, making it impossible to use the mouse to scroll.

Dell Inspiron N5110 :: Windows 8 X64 Professional Installation Process Hangs

Jan 31, 2013

I'm trying to upgrade the operating system on my laptop. Preinstalled Windows 7 x64 Home Basic, and I update to Windows 8 x64 Professional. At the end of the installation process hangs and all I see on the screen - this is the logo in the center of the screen, a few words at the bottom and five frozen in one position points that previously ran in a circle.

I repeated the installation several times, but all of these attempts have ended the same way.

Have any of you have a similar situation and how you solved it?

I have a laptop - Dell Inspiron N5110.
