Sony :: FW Graphic Card Overclocking Results (ATI HD4650 Mobile)
I just want to show you how much overclock you can expect from the HD4650 Mobile graphic card. Wait for 1080P Full HD results.

I don't have external monitor to do 1280x1024 standard test, I'll post the results next week when my monitor arrived.

( Due to poor 128Bit memory controller VGA can't handle 1080P res gaming even with No AA/All settings Low & Crysis FPS stay below 25. However 720P gaming is superb & Crysis stay above 36FPS all time with NO AA/ All Medium setting)

Notebook : Sony VAIO VGN-FW41M/H (UK Version)

VGA Card : ATI HD4650 Mobile Card (512MB DDR3)

ATI Driver version : 9.6

Benchmarked Resolution : 1280x720

Benchmarked software : 3DMark06

Default clock speed results

Overclocked Results

Dell :: 256MB Or 512MB Graphic Card On Studio
I don't play games too often. But I do watch videos & movies & sometimes work on photoshop or GIMP. So will 512MB graphic card make a huge difference compared to 256MB graphic card in my case?

Dell :: Studio 1555 802.11n Card
I have what's branded as a Dell Wireless 1510 802.11n card, so I bought Cisco-Linksys WRT160N-RM Wireless-N router. It distributes an N signal to a wireless adapter of the same make perfectly,

which I have plugged in to my Xbox 360, but my laptop just gives the generic Windows 7 'can't connect to network' error. I've tried everything in the settings of the router,

and yes, my drivers are up to date. I even switched to Broadcom drivers, since Broadcom is the actual manufacturer of the card; Dell distributes it and puts their own brand of driver on it.

Dell :: Studio 1555 And Windows 7 Upgrade
i just did a clean install of windows 7 on my studio 1555 and was having some issues with the audio drivers. i found and installed the idt audio drivers from the dell website,

but it didn't seem to install the idt audio software with it. i know the idt codec is installed because when i go into device manager it shows up,

but i really liked the nifty idt software that came with vista that allowed me to switch between headphone and hdmi output quite easily as well as turn off all of the stupid SRS sound enhancements.

Dell :: Studio 1555 Wireless 5530 Mini HSPA Card
I got my Dell about 2 weeks ago with Vista pre installed. I then took the leap and installed Win 7 32bit.

With the upgrade all is well except the mobile broadband device.

The Mobile broadband application that dell supplies for win 7 is very primitive with very unstable network searching and connecting.

I was just wondering what the latest version software for win 7 is and where to look for an firmware upgrade if indeed there is one?

Dell :: Studio 1555 4GB To 8GB Upgrade
I have been planning to upgrade the amount of memory, but as I read through Intel`s datasheet for the 945PM chipset, it supposedly only supports 4GB.

Since Dell also offers an 8GB option, I am wondering whether they put a different chipset, eg 965 perhaps.

Does anyone have an 8GB Studio 1555 to confirm my theory?

I'm getting a Studio 1555 with the t4200 Penryn Pentium Dual Core CPU. Would a P8600 Core 2 Duo work if I put it in the socket? It seems to be exactly the same core, just faster FSB and multiplier. My guess is Dell use the same motherboard for all 1555 laptops.

Dell :: Slow Wireless Connection: Studio 1555, Intel 5100 Card
as of 2 hours ago my high speed has been stuck at 1 Mbps, much slower then its usual 65+ that I've had over the last 6 days since I got my laptop.

I'm thinking I may have received a faulty wireless card, since when I checked my wired desktop downstairs it's still at it's usual 100Mbps, and my sisters Inspiron 1420 has its normal high speed.

Now when I restart my wireless adapter (Intel 5100) the speed fluctuates between 4-38 Mbps for about a minute before dropping- and staying at 1 Mbps once again.

I checked if there are any computers stealing my wireless connection just in case, and as I thought no one is .....

Dell :: M1330 Graphic Card Warranty Enhancement
Well after just less then a year of service my M1330 was hit by the nvidia failure. With 17 days to ago on the warranty I guess this is the best time for it to happen if its going to.

A quick call to the XPS service line has a new motherboard on the way to be installed.

This is the point were it gets interesting, I asked about the warranty enhancement from the dell blogs here

and was told that policy states because I am having a replacement in warranty I do not qualify for any warranty extension. I questioned the tech rep on were this policy was coming from, but she didn't really have a good explanation of the policy .....

Dell :: Graphic Card 128mb 8400gs Question.
I have a m1330 laptop with a 8400gs graphic card. I want to know if the card can share the memory, because I have 3 gb of ram.

If it can, I can use games that minimum requirements are 256 mb and take the other 128mb from the ram. If it can, will be best to later upgrade to 4 gb of ram?

Sony :: [Vaio Z] Replace The Graphic Card
im searching a way, how to change the graphic card....
How to replace the 9300M GS with a 9600M GT or something that are faster.

There must be a way to speedup the graphic... and we can construct a better cooling design.

I think a faster graphic card, like the 9600M GT, is better for the laptop, because, they have more pixel pipelines and all that.

I think if you underclock the graphic card, it will be much cooler and you can play much better games... in better performance, and much cooler as with the 9300M GS.....

HP/Compaq :: HP G70T -- Graphic Card Update
I purchased an HP G70T directly from hp.com for my husband. I forgot to add the dedicated NVIDIA 256mb graphic card to my order. He's has the notebook for about a week now, and we're looking to see about getting the graphic card added to the notebook. I have contacted hp.com, but I'm getting conflicting answers. One technical support person emailed to say that a graphic card cannot be added after purchase. Another emailed me the link to the HP Parts Store, saying that I could purchase the graphic card there.

So, which is it? Can a dedicated graphic card be added to the HP G70T? Or would I have to send the laptop back as a return/exchange in order to get a G70T *with* the dedicated graphic card?

Dell :: BAD News, Graphic Card Error After Warranty Is Out
I was playing CoH, the game froze in the middle of a game. Tried to Ctrl Esc to get to windows, only part of the windows task bar showed up. It just stucked there for 2 minutes, and blue screen cam e up with error msg about nv4_disp.dll. So I was forced to shut down and waited 10 seconds to turn on again.

After turned on, I see some dotted lines all over the screen (even in bios), not so much that i can't see the bios, but it's definitely not usable. It tried to load into windows (with the dotted lines the whole time). The screen went blank after the waiting bar of winxp is finished. Nothing happens, so i am forced to shut down and turn back on again.

This time, i went into the diagnose before the windows load, and found the error 5300:0119 in the video memory. Called dell xps canada, I was told it's memory burne and it's out of warrantee , and it would cost me $650 to get 7900 gtx shipped to me to replace it myself.

Acer :: Modifying GPU BIOS To Overclock Their Graphic Card?
Does anyone have experience in modifying their GPU BIOS to overclock their graphic card?

I know its risky, but my graphics card (ATI HD3470 hybrid x2) has no desktop equivalent so i cant use ATI Tools.

I have managed to get a 30% overclock, from 680 mhz to 880 mhz, while at the same time undervolted it by 0.1 volts.

Are there any long term consequences if its stable?

For anyone interested, benchmarks ........

Dell :: Buying An XPS 15 Laptop NVidia V. ATI Graphics Card
I am starting to research 15/-16" laptops and looking at the XPS - for my wife who is a photographer. She currently has an Inspiron 1720 but it's not performing for her so she wants to upgrade.

Plus she still has the PITA issue with Vista where her screen color calibrations are continually lost. I on the other hand have an Inspiron 1520 with an nVidia graphics card and once calibrated, my screen doesn't lose the settings.

So I wanted to get her a laptop with an nVidia card - but looking at the XPSs they all seem to have the ATI graphics card - only the old stock still has the nVidia cards.

Is the ATI comparable or better than the nVidia? Will it retain the calibration settings like the nVidia does? Is dell no longer bundlingg nVidia cards because of the problems I have read about (never had any myself).

Acer :: ATI Mobility Driver For The HD 2400XT Video Card (TM 6592)
Where do I find a mobility driver for my Acer TravelMate 6592 with a HD 2400XT video card?

The one on Acers site is acting weird.

I get no additional tabs under Display Properties -> Settings -> Advanced.
(so no way to manage tv out, powerplay or things like that)

Starting the ATI Catalyst Control Center only give me a chance to change resolution.

some desktop settings which are grayed out and nothing else.

It looks like some kind of initial settings/wizzard or so, but I can't get past this.

I can find no Mobility driver for the HD 2400XT card on ATI's own site.

Newest mobility driver (direct link) won't install, as the hardware isn't supported.

Acer :: Ferrari 3400 Video Card (ATI Radeon 9700 Mobility)
here are the specs of my Acer Ferrari 3400:

Acer Ferrari 3400
ATI radeon 9700 mobility
2 gigs of ram
Dual boot with Win XP pro and Ubuntu 7.04 feisty fawn
Newest BIOS and software updates from Acer homepage

Few days ago I started having a problem with my Acer Ferrari 3400 laptop. It all started one morning when i tried to boot my computer.

I booted with ubuntu 7.04 feisty fawn and right after the operating system loaded the X graphical interface, the screen went black and the computer freezed.

I rebooted and tried again with Windows XP (I use a dual boot with Win XP and Ubuntu), and this time I got as far as the Windows loading screen. Then the loading screen turned black and the computer just rebooted itself.

I turned off the windows "auto-rebooting in case of error"-option and tried to boot with Win XP again.

This time I got a "blue screen of death (BSOD)" right after the Win XP loading screen. The BSOD indicated a problem with ati2dvag.dll and said that the "device driver got stuck in an infinite loop". Also the technical information said:
** STOP: 0x000000EA (0x8A56C218, 0x8A5BDAD8, 0xBACDFCB4, 0x00000001).

The numbers in parenthesis are always bit different each time i try to boot.

I googled the error and it seems this kind of a error message is very generic and could be the result of nearly anything ranging from software problems to hardware malfunction.

So this is what I have tried to do so far:
- I booted Win XP with VGA mode -> Windows booted normally, but as I try to increase resolution the same BSOD appears and I have to reboot.

-I uninstalled all ATI video drivers from Win XP and windows booted normally. Of course, without video drivers, the performance of Windows was very sloppy. But it worked with higher resolutions.

- I installed the newest Omega Drivers for the vid card. Windows booted normally, but still had sloppy performance. I tried dxdiag and it showed that DirectDraw&Direct3D acceleration are unavailable. It also showed that video card memory was n/a. Win XP worked with high resolutions.

- I tried to boot Ubuntu linux with a generic vesa driver and it booted normally. Changed back to radeon drivers and it didn't work.

- I ran the Memtest 21 times and got no memory based errors

- I cleaned Win XP radeon drivers with DriverCleaner and tried a fresh install of radeon drivers. Didn't work.

- Finally, I did a Win XP recovery (reinstall) with the CD:s that came with the computer. The result: same error as before and now I can't even enter the VGA mode because the windows tries to raise the resolution right before entering the desktop -> BSOD

Dell :: Upgrade To Win 7 Buid 7048 Ati Issue

Except ( Seems there's always an except) I no longer have access to the right click or anyway for that matter to interface with my ait radeon 3470.

It is installed and working but I obviously would prefer to have the toggle between screen displys and multiple monitors option.

Might be the RC1 7057 irons this out but so far the 64 bit version is not out. Anyone have a thought?
