I know the card is located under the big "metal thing" that says PUSH HERE, I've loosened all the screws off (3 are used to secure it to the motherboard, 4 others are used to secure the metal thing to another,
smaller board) but i can't seem to separate the smaller circuit board from the metal...and the last thing I want to do is force it too much and break it.
You can't Change your Graphics card, is there any graphics card that i can use through the PCI express slot, or the the expansion port? the laptop is hp pavillion dv2000 (exactly: dv2132ea) since i don't want to go through the hassle of changing my laptop. I just need a better vga card
I upgraded my daughters Inspiron 1520 to Windows 8 and everything works well. The only problem we are having is the memory card reader does not work. Windows 8 recognizes it and shows the action center flag and advises us to install a new driver.. We install the driver R188776.exe, install it, and re-boot, but the memory card reader still doesn't work.. Is there another driver we can install?
This is a long winded question so bear with me. Both me and my friend, have Dell XPS M1710 laptops.
mine has the Go7900GS 256MB, and my mates has the 7950GTX 512MB, Graphics cards. have been thinking about an upgrade to a XPS M1730. The base model of the M1730 comes with a single Go8700gt 256MB card in it.
my question is this card any better than our older ones at DX9 and DX10 Games?? there is also an SLI option for the 8700gt, again how would this compare to our older cards??
I have an M90 and my FX 2500M has memory failure. I upgraded the M90 with a T7600 CPU, 4GB Ram, and it is running Vista Ultimate 64. What do I need to do to run the FX 1600M? Any other suggestions on cards is appreciated. I use it for 3D solid modeling and mechanical design.
I got this new xps studio 1340 and I noticed in the device manager that the display adapter is NVIDIA 9400 MG instead of g210 (n10). I also checked the Nvidia control panel and it said the same thing. I also installed some gpu detector (GPU CAPS viewer) and it said the same thing .....
My trusty (out of warranty) XPS M170 has given up the ghost shortly before its second birthday. I'm fairly certain the GeForce Go 6800 Ultra is shot; there was a moment of heavily corrupted graphics followed by a BSOD, then nothing more on the LCD since (backlight still working fine). The VGA output has small green lines over the picture.
I'd like to get another year or two's use out of this baby. I hear the M170 can take a GeForce Go 6800, GeForce Go Ultra 6800, GeForce Go 7800 GTX or an ATI X300. I'm happy to put any one of those in the machine; I really just need solid 2D performance. The ATI would be perfect but I have no idea where they can be bought from.
Is there somewhere reliable from which I can source a new graphics card? I have dropped an email to Dell as their UK site doesn't seem to have spare parts. The US site seems to have a slightly ovepriced 6800 card, which I wouldn't mind resorting to if necessary.
I've been having a problem with my xps gen 2 laptop lately. I was using it the other day and closed the lid and let the system hibernate while I was at work, when I opened it up again it looked like the video card was artifacting. (It has a 6800 ultra in it) I don't use the system to game anymore, its just my daily laptop and it doesn't do alot of video intensive tasks. I ran dell diagnostics and it said it was experiencing errors writing to memory. Every once and a while I can start the system and there is no artifacting. I'm pretty sure the video card is fried because it artifacts while posting, and on the external screen I tried as well. I pulled apart the system to clean it (it wasn't to dusty, I blow it out with compressed air a couple of times a month).
Also I removed the graphics chip and reseated it just to make sure it hadn't come loose or anything. I just want to be sure before I spend the money to replace the graphics chip. I'm probably going to replace it with an x600 since most of the things I do aren't graphics intense and I plan to get a new laptop some time next year.
My M1530 came with the Geforce 8400M GS card and I was wondering what is the best one I can upgrade to? I read somewhere it won't accept newer graphics cards or something like that? Just trying to make it a little faster.
Also as far as upgrading the CPU, in the device manager it lists it as an Intel Core 2 Duo T5550. I'd like to upgrade this also but as far as newer CPUs go I'm not sure which models would work
Going to try to keep this short and sweet. I am being offered a system with a much better processor and graphics card, but there are some serious things missing (which can be added to the 1458), such as, backlit keyboard, the SSD. I do use the backlit keyboard often, and the SSD is the main reason I got the XPS in the first place. Should I call and ask for the same specs as the 1340, or just accept the system they are offering me? .....
recently had my dell xps m1530 motherboard and graphics card replaced by dell,
Since then, whenever I turn it on I get a message saying " the charger is only a 65w and your battery requires a 90w charger ",
Just before my laptop died and I called dell to come and fix my laptop, I was getting the exact same inconsistent framerates in games like l4d, Where i would usually get around 60+ fps, I was now only getting extremely inconsistent 25+ max fps..
I was watching a video today on youtube when the screen paused and green lines appeared around the video. Next thing I know the display turns off and every time I reboot the computer the LCD screen turns on but nothing is displayed.
It boots into windows(I can hear the login theme) but nothing on the LCD. Anyhow here is my dilemma. I was told that because I'm just five days past my warranty, expired on the 22nd, that I might still be able to get it repaired or I could buy an extended warranty.
However, I'm worried that if I call in and tell them that my laptop is dead that they will not only deny repair, but will bar me from getting an extended warranty? Which according to the dell website and my service tag I can still buy. What should I do?
I have an dell m1710 xps and the graphics card has died (again). I know there is an onboard graphics card, and I am hoping/wondering if I can use that to transfer my files off the hard drive.
I thought maybe I should hook a monitor up to the machine, but then I don't know how to access the bios to set which card to use - as the screen is blank. I know there is a way but I cant figure it out.
I found out why my 8800s were running hot. Ater I removed the card and removed the fans I found a WALL of DUST built up between the fan and heatsink. You couldnt see it from the outside at all.
I know I have previously blown air through the heatsing but for some reason it didnt clear it out. I should have taken a picture because it looked like a blanket or air filter sandwiched between their .....
I was playing GRID on my Dell XPS M1710, and got a load of corruption and lines on the screen, and the laptop shut went into a kind of safe mode. It has never been overclocked, and dust has been cleaned recently.
Now, when I turn it on, I get artifacts and corruption even at the BIOS screen. I've tried reseating and reinstalling the drivers, but it hasn't worked. I'm going to call dell tomorrow, but as it's out of warranty,
I don't expect much help. There's no way I'm buying a new GPU, (they cost more than the laptop is worth), so I'm going to try and fix it. I'm going to use the oven fix as a last resort,
and would appreciate advice on anything else I can do to fix it, as well as any tips when performing the oven trick. If anyone is selling a 7900GTX/7950GTX for a decent price, you may have a buyer
i have a dell inspiron 1505 notebook. I bought it new about 1 year ago, i had it upgraded from dell with the 1.86 core 2 duo processor 1 gb of ram and a 128 ati x1300 mobility graphics card. 1 year ago most games only required a 128mb card which was fine, but now most seem to run on 256, there was a 256 option from dell for another 80 dollars on top of the other upgrade fee i already paid and i did not think it was necessary. So i know there is one out there. I have searched around on the internet for a while off and on and i can only find reviews of products i can not find any info on where you can actually buy an upgrade for this computer... I would like to get it upgraded to the 256 if it would not be too much. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
And also i play Battlefield 2142 occasionally and it had a freezing issue on the load screen so i dropped the graphic settings down a bit then it worked fine. But it has happened again, and i dropped the settings down as far as they can go with no luck it still does not work, and the EA tech told me to look for an update for my graphics card which i did and installed one that said it fixed "some gaming issues" but it did not fix the freezing issue.
I have a Latitude D530 company computer. Unfortunately, it only supports 1024 x 768 screen resolution for the unit's display.
The graphics chipset is the Mobile Intel 965 Express family.
My question is this: If I was to get an external larger resolution display - say a display with 1680 x 1050 resolution - can the graphics chipset support this higher resolution and different screen ratio
