1. Was ANYONE able to fix their sound stuttering issue on m1530? Through Dell suport, specifically? I've seen many non working solutions, and many components blamed that it makes me believe this problem defies any definition. I used to have this problem all the time, now it just occurs when laptop is on for extended amounts of time (a day) and only if connected to the internet (wireless or lan). Example: Listening to music and turning on a movie trailer on netflix = horrible stuttering, crazy cpu usage, general slow down especially during initial buffering. Anybody with a similar problem? (mind that I'm virtually unable to reproduce the stutter on a freshly restarted lappy - it happens after a day of usage w/ sleep in between)
2. Overheating....just to keep it short: 20 mins of gaming brings up my temps to the ridiculous ~100C CPU and abt the same for GPU + emergency shutdown . My guess is bad/badly mounted heatsink. Was anybody able to resolve an issue like that with dell?
I discovered that while playing video games for a bit my frame rates would all of a sudden go abysmal for about a minute or to (drop by 50-75%) and then return to normal. I finally tracked down the problem and whenever I tested the temperature and CPU speed when the frame rates went crazy, I noticed that the temperature was 85+ degrees C and that the computer had halved the CPU speed to about 1.5ghz (I have a T8300 2.4Ghz) in an attempt to cool it down. Is there any way to fix if my fans have malfunctioned or something? I'm still within a 1 year warranty, so should I just call Dell or is there something I can do about it?
I've tried to search as best I can for an answer to my problem, but haven't been able to find an answer as of yet.
I'm running a Dell XPS M1530 with Intel T9300 dual processors and 4GB RAM. My system is a dual-boot: I use Vista Enterprise 32-bit for general activities such as schoolwork and internet, and I also have a very bare-bones Windows x64 that I use for some intensive MATLAB computation and music recording/processing. This system is about 9 months old.
I first started having problems after I'd only had this computer for about a month. I was at a conference and had my laptop in its sleeve and in my backpack. I took it out sometime in the afternoon after having used it in the morning and it was extremely, extremely hot .....
Lately I've been having issues with the sound, which I believe to be temperature related and I wasn't sure whether to put this in the audio or hardware board.
Anyway, at least once a day I have to restart because any sound output-- videos, skype calls, music-- beging to stutter severely and sound how I can only describe as "robotic." After restarting, it goes back to normal. There are no error messages, the system just begins to lag and affected programs become unresponsive.
Usually when this happens, I notice that my device is unusually hot. Ever since I purchased it, I have never heard or felt air moving in the vents so I'm not sure if the fan is functional. I'm afraid to take it apart to make sure in case that voids the warranty, but I suspect excessive heat might be damaging the components related to this issue.
The default sound device is Realtek High Definition Audio
i have got no sound while i m browsing my drives or files in my vista ultimate operating system. i did re-apply theme, sound everything. but nothing worked out. now i have set Ultimate Extras Glass sound sceme, but still i can't hear any sound while i m clicking the drive or opening folders. everything else is perfectly normal.
I now definetly think its drivers. Sound not working, mic not working.
i found out strange thing happened to my laptop. When i tried to play mp3, or any other file through wmp, vlc, itunes no sound was heard. when tried to play with wmp it showed up error i clciked web help but no useful info was found in there. when through vlc i just kept playing music (without sound) i tried updating drivers reinstalling to them that were shipped but no good. i have the warranty bought from the dell. i can/ but dont want to acces the mainboard so i wont loose my warranty. i now think it is a soft/drivers problem. in device manager it shows that everything is ok. tried so set the default audio device, microphone not working ***
I have a Dell Inspiron 1520 with 8600GT. I wanted to buy a 5.1 speaker set but it would be of no use as 1520 does not have 3 audio jacks while the 1525 and XPS 1530 has 5.1 output.
I was just wondering, if it was possible to somehow get an extra audio jack outside the laptop by checking if a header pin for a third audio jack exists on the motherboard since the audio chip is HD audio and motherboard design would be similar to 1525 and XPS 1530
I lot of people have openend up their systems and taken a look at the audio circuitry to fix the static noise coming from the headphone jacks. Did anyone notice if a third audio jack could be soldered to the motherboard to get 5.1 audio.
has anybody else had a crackling sound when playing sound example music/games. i always get it in my right speaker and how can i fix this i believe this is a software/hardware issue as whenever the sound goes off the crackling deaseses.
I have changed a setting on this computer and now my sound does not work properly. I dont know what got changed but the windows sound like the bell and the chime take about 10 seconds to play. i can not use windows media player is said the drived is out of date but I checked and the update said I have the most current software. I did try the windows trouble shooter but it couldnot find a problem. I do have beats audio on a dv7-6b63us.
Okay, well the day before yesterday I was trying to watch Youtube but when I clicked on a video it had no sound. I thought it was Youtube, so I exited the site and thought I'd wait a little bit. So then I went to Spotify to listen to some music. I kept clicking and clicking and nothing was happening. Then I noticed a blue notice at the top that said something about my soundcard not working properly.
I then checked everything on my computer to see if it had sound. Windows Media Player...no, videos on Facebook...nope, nothing was working. At first I thought it was my daughter. I let her watch Youtube when she lays down for a nap. I came in the other day and she was hitting all kinds of buttons on my computer. I stopped her though and everything seemed fine. I also remember my computer updating that day. Could it be that something went wrong with the update? I don't know if that's possible or not.
And also, what is a soundcard. Do I have to buy it or do I download it???
I went to Yahoo answers and someone said to uninstall the drivers. I did that and then reinstalled them and it worked. The rest of that day I had sound on everything except for Facebook. Yesterday night it happened again and the sound has not returned since but my computer sounds are still working. When I logged on the computer made the log in sound it usually makes. I also tried to listen to a video with headphones and it still did not work. Again, I uninstalled the drivers and then re installed them and got nothing.
Processor sound(fan sound) is coming from my lappy
Im using acer aspire 5920 lappy from may2008......im using my lappy 15 hours per day.....when im working with my lappy .... an internal sound(some thing like fan sound) is coming from it...that is i think the processor sound...i dont know what it is....
I have installed oracle 11g in my lappy and iam working with oracle daily...is thhis may any cause to this sound?
I have a Sony VGN-Z36GD. I am having problems with my sound. When I try and record something all I get is a hissing sound when I play it back. When I use Skype I can hear the person I am talking to but they cannot hear me. My laptop says everything is working yet it is not.
I replaced the integrated video card on my computer with a 7900 GS and it's been overheating. I looked at my case, and the vents for the GPU are there, it's just that they're solid. Where the holes are, there is metal instead. Does anyone know anything I can do to knock those holes out so I can get some air in there? WoW overheats in about 15 min,
My 2 month old Dell M1530 idles at the following temps:
I really don't know why... It's been like this for a couple weeks or more now. Power settings are all on max of course... But when I first got the laptop, it'd idle pretty cool... Now my hands sweat while typing :
Laptop is not overclocked (I did overclock a bit in October for Crysis now and then)
My room is pretty cold.
I'm going to open it up and look for dust... But I really doubt this is the problem.
I currently own a dell laptop and have the problem of it overheating very quickly as opposed to other laptops I have used. Is this a normal occurance or could it be a problem with my personal notebook.
my computer isXPS M1530 with GeForce 8600m gt. When I play a game named Gunz, which is supposed to not be a graphic-intensive game, my pc will simply go black after a certain time(vary between 10 min - hours). Then, the sound of pc just stop.
I thought this is a overheating problem, but after viewing some threads about overheating, it seems like that overheat only lead to a shut down or a restart. Since my computer simply go black and turn off, I don't know if my pc is overheating. Can someone tell me if Im overheating? If not, what's causing these crashes?
Btw, my GPU and ACPI temp were around 83C five min before my computer crashes...
Just got my E6400 from Dell Outlet today and i noticed it's running noticeably hot.
I've read some of the posts on the nvidia overheating problem so I decided to run the same tests other people did. The screenshot is after running 3DMark2006 on Balanced power setting.
Are those temps ok? I talked to a rep who acknowledged the potential problem with the nvidia chipset and said if i send this to the depot now they can take a look at the mobo, cpu and gpu and have it back to me in less than 10 regular days.
Since I have finals coming up, I'd much rather not send it in unless they offer me onsite or some potential freebies, which the rep refused to. So any suggestion would be much appreciated. Should I run some more tests?
