I put my 7950 gtx at 620//675 and I was testing with atitool .26 which I just downloaded and didn't change any settings. No artifacts for about 45 minutes, but atitool reports my temps in the system tray, and it got as high as 88 degrees. That seems pretty high, is that bad?
The specs along with the look and price really make this an attractive laptop. I’ve been looking for a reasonably priced portable gaming box. This will by no means be a desktop replacement, but more of a LAN party box I can bring with me instead of lugging around my desktop.
I've been looking into buying the Dell Studio XP 16 for the last couple weeks but the number of issues I've seen reported on various forums have made me nervous.
1)Has the throttling issue been fully resolved? I’ve seen various BIOS being released but I’m yet to read anywhere that it has resolved the issue or whether it will EVER be resolved.
2)Does the throttling issue affect all Dell XPS 16s or just particular builds/models?
3)How hot does the laptop get when surfing the web? I know it can get pretty warm when gaming.
4)Anyone have any timeline of when the next version of the Dell XPS 16 will be released?
5)Should I wait until a newer XPS is released or stay away from it completely and get a different laptop?
I'm looking to upgrade my E6400 to an intel 5300 card. Do I have to buy a card that is programed specificly for a Dell computer, or will any one work? In shopping around I see that some say Dell only, or HP/IBM only.
How about the ones on e-bay, have users had good luck with those? For some reason I'm wary of those sellers. Of course I know I can buy one from Dell, but I'm trying to save a few bucks if I can
I start the laptop and I get the black screen with the Dell logo on it.Â There is a progress bar at the bottom that moves across to the right as the boot up progresses.Â In the bottom right corner, it shows the option of hitting F2 for Set Up or F12 for Boot Menu.Â I can access both of these menus.Â It then progresses to a screen with the Windows logo with the words "Resuming Windows" underneath.Â Once that completes, I get a black screen!
I was told that I should boot up the laptop in safe mode by hitting F8.....Â
My Inspiron N5050 no longer boots up, not even in safe mode or "last known good configuration." Decided to reinstall the Operating System, but need to know whetherÂ I have 32 bit or 64 bit.Have all the originbal documentation, including system specifications, but cannot tell whether my laptop is 32 bit or 64 bit.How to determine if you can't boot up the system?
My 4-year old Dell Mini 10 has started flashing orange just after bootup & then turns off. (Adapter LED is solid white, the flashing orange is the one at the front.) Removed the battery for an hour, since some postings say it's probably just hot; when it's reinserted the problem returns. But when I run it on AC power with the battery out, no problems.
This machine has had a weird life for a laptop, in that it has almost never been taken anywhere -- that is, it has only rarely run on battery power, and the battery has been fully discharged only a handful of times.
I'll be replacing it soon regardless, but for the month or so between now and then, is there anything wrong or unsafe about running it with no battery in the bay?
I was trying to boot in safe mode so i went into boot options checked safe boot and minimal. Â Then when I restarted, it just kept restarting over and over again. Â I can't get to safe mode. Â I can get to the setup and boot manager. Â I tried running diagnostics and there were no errors.
long time PC user and I am trying to find out, with no success so far what would be safe temperatures for the cpuÂ i7-3632QM and for the GPU HD7730. I am a bit fanatical about taking care of my PC's so this info is important to me.
my question is, it is safe to update the BIOS from inside the Windows 8? I am ask because in the past my previous laptop, burned the motherboard of the laptop, because the bios update through the windows it was failed.
Vista Home Premium, didn't have a disc so ordered one from Dell. Upon startup it ask me to putÂ a disc in to repair.
Will this work, my understanding you needed a Vista disc, and this computer does not seem to have a partition with Vista on it, for the repair. I wondering if this will work? I tried diagnostics everything seems fine, but it loops to safe mode.
I've had my M1530 for almost 11 months now and I noticed this discoloration on the palm rest but more importantly are the temps. The CPU is hitting 97 degrees Celsius and the GPU is hitting at 94 degrees Celsius. I first noticed this after several hours of video conversions then I ran ORTHOS to replicate the results. Should I ask for a technician to replace the mainboard or heatsinK? I've tried to raise the issue with the GPU running at this temp before but to no avail. However, this is the first time the CPU has hit such high temps.
I've got a Precision M4400 for which I did some DIY upgrading... Specifically, I put in a T9900 (3.06GHz, 35W TDP) processor and a 256Gb SSD. You can see the specs in my signature, actually.
The problem is that my temperatures seem to be going pretty high. Realtemp is saying that once I turn on the laptop, both CPU cores are at around 30-35 C. But after a very short while, this heats up to the mid-40's. And if I play Sims 3, let's say, the temperature can go up all the way to the high 70's. The GPU seems to stay at under 80 C, which I think should be fine .....
