Dell :: M1710 Video External Monitor

Feb 20, 2009

Just got this m1710. Has 2.13 cpu, 100gb, 7950gtx, 4gig.

Bought it cheap cause the monitor wasn't working, but would work with external monitor.

Reinstalled xp sp3 without format and started installing driver from dell for bios, chipset, system utilities, system firmware, network, audio, video(which didn't seem to work) and input devices.

At some point during one of the installs and I'm pretty sure it was one of the dell installs not windows updates, that the monitor just popped on and was working. So, my figured ok it works I will now format the drive and do it all over again. Well, didn't work that way. I installed everything again, but the monitor doesn't work now and if I try to install nvidia drivers the computer freezes at some point.

I hope I'm just missing some driver or order or something.

I'm assuming everything works, because like I said it started working and kept working till I started all over.

Dell :: Video With An External Monitor Attached To A E6400

Jan 18, 2010

Just a few weeks ago, I received a new DELL E6400 with Intel Graphics Card.

Since day 1, I started to notice a strange behavior when I connect an external monitor to the VGA port of my laptop. No matter the resolution, the monitor shows horizontal and vertical blurry lines just like if it was a refresh rate issue.

I reported the issue to Dell, and they replaced my monitor, but the lines are still there...I checked the refresh rate and updated the video card drivers with no luck...

Have any of you experienced something like this?

I'm not using a docking station and I'm running windows XP with extended desktop...

Dell :: E6400 How To Change External Monitor Refresh Rate? CRT Monitor

Mar 4, 2009

I recently just purchased and received a fancy Dell e6400 from one of the many dell deals. My eyes are light sensitive from looking at many computer screens over the years and due to this I avoid LCD screens and much prefer flat CRT monitors. My goal is to use the e6400 as my workstation computer while using the VGA out to power my 19in Sony CRT .....

Dell :: Monitor/control My Fans On My Xps M1710

May 19, 2009

Monitoring Notebook Temps: nVidia & ATI, CPU, HDD - Do your temps worry you?

and other posts with people having overheating problems with their XPS's. I blew some canned air in through the vents to clear it and it helped a lot, but i still had a tech comeout to take it apart and they put new fans and a heat sink in. I want to check their speed and make sure they're working right before i stress the system, theyre much more quiet t han t he old ones i cant really tell if theyre working right

i tried both speedfan and rivatuner, neither one shows any data on fan speed or anything.

what am i doing wrong, is there some setting im missing? i checked a bunch of the plugins w ith rivatuner but didn't see anything, and speedfan shows nothing at all. how can i check their speed?

Dell :: M6400 External Monitor

Dec 10, 2008

I was wondering if anybody else is having issues with using 2 external monitors with their M6400?

My configuration:
I have a M6400 Covet, FX3700M, 8GB, Vista Ultimate 64, A01 BIOS, updated drivers... connected to an E/Port Plus 210W Port replicator. I have a 24" Dell 2405FPW external monitor connected to display #1 (1920x1200) and a 19" 1908WFP connected to display #2. (1440 x 900). Both are connected via DVI connectors.

My problem:
The secondary monitor never has problems... However, the main monitor (24" @ 1920x1200) goes all crazy. It has red "dots" that appear all over the screen in dark areas. The bottom of the screen sometimes has horizontal bars. I see red and black vertical bars as well. The screen constantly flickers and the image hangs off the edges many times. If I change the resolution to BELOW 1440 x 900 the screen looks fine. Anything over 1440 x 900 goes crazy. (none of this occurs when using the LCD on the laptop itself)

The 24" monitor is fine. I have swapped cables and they do not help. If I plug up my desktop computer to the montior- it is perfect in 1920x1200. If I plug up my old Dell Precision M90 using it's old E/Port docking station- it too works fine in 1920 x 1200. So it's not the monitor.

Dell support doesn't know what the problem is. They say it's probably a driver issue. (I have the latest driver) They say they will contact me in the future if there is ever a solution and they are going to escalate it to their video hardware team.

Is there anybody else out there experiencing the same issues as me?
If you are running dual monitors successfully with the E/Port Plus 210W, what monitors are you using, at what resolution and what connector? (DVI or that new display port thing) If you aren't using the E/Port Plus 210W- what docking station did dell sell you?

I need to get a resolution to this ASAP.

I've attached two photos taken from my digital camera showing the screen issues.

Dell :: XPS M1330 & External Monitor

Aug 20, 2007

I am about to take delivery of an XPS M1330 with the 128MB NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS graphics card. When at my desk, I am looking to use the laptop with a Dell 19-inch Widescreen LCD Flat Panel Monitor [url] I am hoping to use the external monitor at the same time as the laptop monitor (for example, Outlook on one screen and Internet Explorer on the other).

- Is this possible? Does the graphics card support multiple monitors / dual view in this way?

The XPS screen resolution is 1280x800 and the resolution of the external monitor is 1440x900.

- Will the fact that the screens have different resolutions cause any problems?

Dell :: External LCD Monitor For XPS M1330?

May 30, 2009

I recently purchased an XPS M1330, with:Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T8300 (2.4GHz/800Mhz FSB/3MB cache)Intel Integrated Graphics Media Accelerator X31004 GB DDR2 SDRAM 667MHz (2 DIMMs)Genuine Windows Vista Home Premium
I'll mostly use it for AutoCAD, SketchUp, etc.

I want to purchase a monitor, but I'm not sure about a few details:What's the difference between buying a laptop with an HDMI entry, versus just buying one with a DVI entry (which seem to be cheaper), and get a HDMI-to-DVI cable?What's WXVGA and all those 5-letter-acronyms

Dell :: XPS M1330 With External Monitor

Sep 23, 2008

I just got my new XPS M1330 With 128MB Graphic Card.

Now when i connect to my XPS M1330 with my External Monitor (Dell 24" 2408WFP) Resolution: 1920X1200

I don't see good sharpness in fonts and image. I have set native resolution that is 1920X1200

I also have Inspiron 1720 (256 Mb Graphic Card)

There its show very fine and sharp fonts and pictures.

I use VGA cable in both the systems.

Now when i talk to Dell Teach Department.

They gave me few reasons as below.
My laptop screen is 13.3" and Monitor screen 24" (i know this is silly reason ) (but i argued with him and then he gave me 2nd reason)My XPS M1330 have lower graphic card (128MB Geforce 8400M GS) that is the reason i can't see clear display. To see clear sharp text and images i need batter graphic card (more then 128MB).
so he said he can't help me. It is not problem of XPS M1330.

Does anyone of you using XPS M1330 with 1920X1200 Resolution?

Dell :: Adding External Antenna To Xps M1710 Internal Wireless Card

Mar 23, 2009

This is what I am working with:

Computer rig:
Dell XPS M1710 Review (pics, specs)

Wireless card intel specs:
[url]

And I think this is the external antenna I would like to get (would love any suggestions):
5 dBi Magnetic Mount Omni Antenna - Omnidirectional Antennas for 2.4GHz - Antennas - Fleeman, Anderson & Bird, Corp.

The pdf says the wireless card antenna is, "Hirose* U.FL-R-SMT mates with cable connector U.FL-LP-066"

So basically is all I have to do is buy one of these, 4 inches U.FL Pigtail:U.FL to MMCX WiFi 2.4GHz 802.11g - eBay (item 160119011606 end time Apr-09-09 01:58:22 PDT)

Drill a hole in my laptop case and install one of these connected to the first adapter that is connected directly to the card:
MMCX to N-Male, Pigtail 19" 100-Series - CA-MMNMCN19

Now the n-female from the antenna can then connect to the now adapted laptop wireless external antenna?

I am presenting all of this as a question because I think this is what I need to do but I would like to double check with some knowledgeable people first that this can work, is feasible, will bring desired results (increased range) etc.

Dell :: M1730 GPU (1 Core For External Monitor)

Sep 17, 2009

Looking for a bit of information, Ive had my M1730 for about 1 1/2-2 years its been preety good (had to replace the PSU) no real problems. I have taken it apart a few times to clean the fans.

Just today I noticed something when I went to plug in an external monitor I only have 1 GPU core.

I only play wow casually and use it for design/work so I haven't noticed the FPS drop lol. I installed new nvidia drivers 3 weeks ago and at that time I had SLI so I must of lost one of my GPUs in that time span T.T

I have re-installed GPU drivers.

Dell :: Having Trouble With Display On External Monitor

Jan 26, 2009

I was getting frustrated with my external monitor because the screen color was turning dark purplish at times, so I went into Device Manager and deleted both default monitor entries instead of just one under Monitors in hopes that it would've gotten rid of the purple haze so to speak.

I tried unhooking the monitor and unplugging everything before I deleted the default monitor entries in Device Manager, but it didn't get rid of the purple screen.

I have a fairly old notebook Dell Inspiron 4000 with WinMe installed and the display is no longer working assumed due to a bad or broken LCD, which is why I'm using the external monitor.

The external monitor has been working fine for months until it started turning purple on me when it was being used with the notebook. When the monitor is hooked up with my desktop, the screen color is just fine.

The notebook has got a lot of storage on it. During the boot process on the notebook, the external monitor lights up at one point (no longer purplish), but goes blank/dark after a few seconds and says it no longer is getting a signal from the notebook

Dell :: E6400 External Monitor Scaling

Feb 28, 2010

I've had Windows 7x64 running on my E6400 (w 160m) for 4 months now and frequently use an external monitor (Dell E207FP widescreen 1680x1050).

Up until a few days ago, I could plug the monitor in and it would correctly and automatically scale my desktop to the native 1680x1050 resolution.

All of a sudden (with no driver updates on my part) I can no longer scale any output to this resolution via VGA cable.

I examined the device manager and found that the video driver date was not the Oct09 driver I had expected, but instead something from Jun09. Updated the driver to the most recent dated Dec-14-09 and I am still having the same scaling issue.

Dell :: Screen Goes Black ... So Does External Monitor

Aug 22, 2009

Just a few coke drops spilled on the upper right side of the keyboard. Right around the backspace key.

At the moment it happened, the lcd starts flipping out, eventually turns solid white, then shutting down.

Did a complete disasemmble and cleaned every piece with contact cleaner. The laptop functions 100% now....except one small irritation..

The screen goes black at random. Sometimes 30 seconds after boot...sometimes 5 or 6 hours...The Power indicator, baterry light and wifi lights all stay on green as if the computer is still running. I have to hold the power button down to shut it off and it reboots with the desktop recovery white screen.

I can find the stock replacements through Dell and eBay, but I'm curious if there are other alternatives out there?

if the hard drive from my Inspiron 8600 would be compatible?

Dell :: The M1710 Video Card Ride Down

Mar 9, 2009

I've joined the legion of M1710 users that have had their video card crap out on them. Typical green lines and bars results in chat to XPS support to have 7900GS replaced. That lasted ~ 2 weeks. Dust cleaned out every month, on a cooler pad,etc. Screen goes black suddenly (not screen saver) and a reboot leads to green lines again. Another chat/phone call to Dell results in replacement motherboard AND 7950 GTX. Nice upgrade. So, how long should I expect this card to last? I've had no other issues and really do my best to keep everything clean and cool. And when this card goes (they all seem too?).... I should mention that I received the M1710 as a replacement for a E1705 that overheated, had parts replaced, and then needed to go to the depot to be "fixed," only to return un-repaired and with the wires to the wireless antenna cut inside the case.
