Dell :: XPS M1530 (8600M GT) Running Multiple Monitors

Apr 4, 2010

So, doing some research it seems that the Matrox dual or triple head2go is the pricey solution to running more than 2 external monitors. Are there other solutions to running 2 or more external monitors without shutting down the laptop screen?

I was thinking hdmi to one screen then 2 usb to dvi to the two other screens, but don't know if this will shut off the screen on my laptop.

HP Envy 15-u011dx Display :: Setting Up Multiple External Monitors?

Jan 2, 2015

recently purchased an HP ENVY x360 - 15-u011dx Touch Laptop. Try to set up two external monitors using an HDMI splitter. I can "extend" the desktop, but both screens are showing the same image, which isn't what I want. Can i set up two external monitors with this laptop using a splitter (this was what I was told would work when I purchased the unit along with the two monitors.)  Previous laptops had HDMI and VGA ports allowing for two monitors.  This laptop (as well as most newer ones) no longer have a VGA port.

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: T430 Multiple Monitors With HD4000

Nov 13, 2012

I know that the T430 equiped with nVidia graphics is capable of supporting more than 2 monitors.
What about T430 equipped with the HD4000 graphics Card, using the MiniDock Series 3?
I have connected three monitors (Dock-DVI, Dock-VGA, ThinkPad-MiniDisplayPort) but, so far, I can extend my desktop over two of these three monitors only.

Dell :: M1530 8600M About To Die

Nov 25, 2008

Was using Google Earth Pro and the screen blanked out for a second before being restored. The error was as below

"Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered."

The references to this error seem to infer that the GPU is close to death, and the error will get progressively worse. Anyone else had this error and survived? I've had the laptop less than 4 weeks.

I'm really not keen on getting the laptop replaced and possibly ending up with a poorer display i.e. more screen bleed.

Dell :: 8600m Gt Not Longer In M1530?

Jun 5, 2009

dell is no longer offering the Nvidia 8600m gt, they only offering only the 8400 in this system,

is this just coincidence? they gonna finaly take out the m1530 and m1330 systems? and if we, happy customers of the m1530, get in some trouble with this graphics card, they probably gonna replace with a Studio XPS 16? of similar specs? cause they wont have 8600m for replacement

i dont know about u but i dont like te studio xps 16, first bigger, heavier, and not as stylish as the .

Dell :: XPS M1530...8600m GT Good Enough

Dec 1, 2007

Is the 8600M GT good enough for games such as Battlefield 2? I read a 4,000 plus benchmark somehwere...but others were mid 3000s on 3Dmark06...That's not much, but I think it's faster than my X800 XT is in the XPs desktop which plays BF2 fine.

I'm going to be going with a new gaming desktop within a year or so, but I still want the laptop to be able to handle BF2!

Anyone own the 1530 yet? Found good reviews?

Dell :: M1530 8400M Vs 8600M

Jun 5, 2009

Currently my M1530 has the nvidia 8400M GS chip in it. I'm thinking about swapping the motherboard out for one with an 8600M chip on it.

My question is, will it make much of a difference? How much greater is the 8600M w/ 256mb versus the 8400M w/ 128mb that is currently in my machine? Look forward to your responses.

Dell :: M1530 Nvidia Geforce 8600m GT (256mb Ddr3) Just Isn't Powerful Enough..

Jul 7, 2009

Fair enough my hdd is only 5200rpm not 7k+ but 4gb ram and 2.4 intel core duo my FPS in WOW can drop to like 5 and thats with lowest gfx settings.

Beaware WOW has developed and a new add-on came out last year with better graphics...

I don't know what to do I love the portability of M1530 but the GFX side of things seems . I know its only a mid ranged gaming/performance laptop but its a shame you cannot upgrade it...

Anyone know any alterative laptops with like double gfx performance with same portability

Dell :: Bluetooth 365/370 Modules Failing-multiple Platform,multiple Bluetooth Versions

Apr 17, 2010

I have need to use Bluetooth stereo audio functionality (A2DP profile) almost exclusively when I use my laptop.

I had owned a M1330 with the Dell 355 Bluetooth Module for several years without issue. Last November, I decided to upgrade and purchased an M15x (laptop #1) with the Dell 370 Bluetooth module included,running Windows 7 x64 Ultimate. Not more than one day out of the box,the 370 module failed while watching a movie. It literally disappeared from device manager and no uninstalling/reinstallation of drivers alleviated the situation. The only way to get the radio to be recognized by the operating system was, and is, to shutdown,reboot into bios,disable the card in bios,reboot into windows,restart,boot into bios,enable the card and then reboot into Windows. The card would then work for awhile but eventually fail again. The module works for short periods of time but if put under an extended load,fails. That and other issues with the M15x caused me to return it.

Contacted Dell and returned the M15x and bought and built a Studio XPS 1645 (laptop #2) to replace it. Received the unit and literally within the 1st few hours,the 370 module failed exactly like the M15x.I thought o.k. a bad card and had tech support send out a new module for the XPS 1645. Received and installed it and the exact same problem happened. Failed when under an extended load. Again called tech support and was then dispatched an onsite tech to replace the entire motherboard and card. No resolution-card failed again. Spoke with a resolution specialist and returned it and again purchased a M15x (laptop #3-really liked the M15x over the XPS 1645)

Received the M15x-Bluetooth failure again. At this point, was considering dropping Dell altogether but thought I'd try the Studio 1558 (laptop #4) with the Bluetooth 365 module, in order to rule out the 370 card, first. Ordered and was delivered on the 5th of April, same exact issue-failure of card under a load. I am returning this defective Studio 1558 and again getting a M15x (laptop #5). I realize that the M15x Bluetooth card will fail again-in fact,am 100% sure it will fail,but have bought a Sony Bluetooth transmitter as a workaround.

What appears to be happening is that the card will shutdown when it gets warm.This is either a Broadcom manufacturing defect or a Dell engineering issue. I know now through personal experience that there is a serious issue with Dell Bluetooth cards.

If this was happening with only one laptop, I'd be ok with it but, this is occuring across multiple laptop platforms, with both Broadcom Bluetooth cards that Dell brands and sells.

This is either an oversight by engineering-maybe they didn't test the card under a heavy load, or Dell is knowingly selling defective equipment.

Dell :: Running Mercenaries 2 On A M1530

I was given "Mercenaries 2" as a gift, and it is as of now, unopened - so it could be returned if need be. I'd like to run this on my 1530, but would rather return it if the 1530 is not equipped for this game. Anyone playing this game on a 1530?

Dell :: XPS M1530: Kensington SD100S Laptop Docking StationSafe To Unplug From Docking Station And Monitor While Booted Up And Running?

May 4, 2009

I have an XPS M1530 running Vista Home Premium 64-bit, T-9300 Processor, 6 gig RAM, 320 gig 7200-rpm harddrive. I am using it with the Kensington SD100S Laptop Docking Station (with stand) and a 22" Samsung monitor (monitor as primary display and laptop display as secondary display) and the Dell Bluetooth keyboard and mouse. The Kensignton docking station attaches to the M1530 via USB.

My question is, is it safe for me to detach the docking station when the M1530 is booted up and running? What about detaching the monitor? Except when I have an external USB harddrive turned on, there is not anything in my tray icons to indicate (as far as I can tell) that any hardware needs to be safely removed.

I have a 2nd AC adapter in my den separate from my home office, but I so rarely take the laptop mobile in the house since I power down first. Please let me know whether I am being too cautious, and if it is safe to detach the docking station and monitor while running any precautions that I should take. I do have my XPS backed up via Ghost if a problem should happen.

They are mostly identical, but with two exceptions.

Apple :: Run Multiple Text Editors Under MacOS

Jul 17, 2009

using a mac as my 'daily driver' and have noticed an ODD difference between mac and win.

In windows if you want to run 1, 2, 5 or 10+ copies of the same app... just launch it again. Apps can restrict their instance count if they want but in general you can run as many copies of something as you want.

On the mac... the 'launch' icon becomes the 'goto' icon after the app has been launched... so there doesnt seem to be a way of easily launching a second copy of the same program.

So is there a way to do this? when im doing web work on windows ive been known to have 30+ notepad windows open... dont see a way to do this on the mac. Am i missing something?

Dell :: 17'' FHD Monitors *ever* Be Available Again?

Apr 27, 2010

HP - No.
Dell - No.
Acer - No.
Asus - No (well, except for G73).
Toshiba - No.
Sony - No.

All are selling 1600x900 in 17" laptops. What's up with that? FHD is available in the 16s and 15s! It's bad enough I have to lose 10% of my screen real estate by going from 1920x1200 to 1920x1080 but down further to 1600x900? Not going to happen! Is there only one plant in the world making these things? Did it burn down or something?

HP Envy 17 :: Keyboard Spits Multiple Keys With One Press?

Jan 17, 2014

Have an issue with the keyboard on the HP Envy 17. There are three keys that, for whatever reason, stopped working.
The "o" key produces zero, left key, home, period, 'o', and 'p'.
The 'L' key produces three, period, page down, six, 'l', and semi colen.
The '.' key produces '2', '5', end, '4', period, and forward slash.
This happens every time the key is pressed. If held, they produce the above, then the last key repeatedly.
All other keys perform as expected. If a seperate USB keyboard is used, it works fine.
I've tried updating and rolling back the BIOS, as well as 'resetting' by removing all power for a few minutes. Have also uninstalled the driver, then installed the latest.
I also purchased a replacement keyboard from HP (part #720244-001) and installed.
