Dell :: Switching To Onboard Graphics Card

Apr 16, 2009

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.

Dell :: Dual Monitors On An E5500 With Onboard Graphics Card

Jun 19, 2009

For some reason I can't search or I would have done that first so I apologize if this has been beaten to death. I placed an order for a Latitude E5500 with 4G of memory and the 2.4g processor.

One question that I asked of the online chat people was if it would support a dual monitor set up with the onboard gpu (I didn't have an option for an upgrade on the 5500).

The first guy said no, my salesperson on the phone said yes, absolutely although unless I buy a dock one of the monitors would have to be my laptop lcd, and just to break the tie I asked another online sales person and he said absolutely not!

Dell :: Can I Disable Nvidia Card And Use Onboard Video

Jan 6, 2010

My laptop is Vostro 1500 with 8600M GT

I'm experiencing some weird flashes, driver stops working and recovered, random distorting dots etc recently. I'm 99% sure its the video card's problem. Luckily the display card can be exchanged. But before going ahead to change it I wanna ensure its video's fault. So I wonder theres any way I can turn off the NVIDIA 8600M GT ,use the intel graphic instead, and see if I still get any of those problems.

I don't seem to find any option in BIOS letting me to do so.

HP/Compaq :: Onboard Sound Card Not Detected:dv6736nr

Feb 15, 2010

all of a sudden my ONBOARD SOUND CARD is not detected.

all i see is an X mark on the speaker icon.

i cant really pinpoint the culprit but i do remembering doing the latest updates (this is a windows 7 ultimate system btw) and installing WINXP as a VM.

the SOUND BUTTON seems to be stuck. it just stays lit and i cant turn it off.

what i have done so far:

- tried to install vista drivers from hp.com, but obviously am unable to install it since its a win7 system. link to a win7 64 bit driver for a CONEXANT HIGH DEFINITION AUDIO 221.

- tried to do a system restore but fails.

- tried having win7 detect what the problem is and i come with a .reg file which supposedly contains the audio settings but i am unable to install it..

HP 13-p111 Nr X2 :: Does Onboard Card Reader Support SDXC Cards In One Or Both Slots

Jan 24, 2014

Does the onboard card reader in my my 13-p111 nr X2 notebook (Win 8.1) support SDXC cards in one or both slots (standard and micro)?  Win 8.1 supports the file system, but my 64GB micro sd card is not being recognized in the onboard slot, making me think that the card reader hardware may not support that format.  If the onboard reader does not , should the notebook still recognize a 64GB SDXC card in a USB card reader stick?  
 
I've looked in the service manual for this X2 notebook and it is not specific about SD 0r SDHC or SDXC support.  Where can I find detailed system specs for this machine?

Sony :: VPC-Z1190X Crashing When Switching Graphics

Apr 4, 2010

Just got my new Z-series laptop last week and I discovered one bit of annoyance. I can crash the laptop consistently by simply using the "Dynamic Hybrid Graphics System" switch.

Here's what happens:
- Push the switch over to "Stamina" mode
- Reboot the system

- Push the switch over to "Speed" mode
- Screen flashes, goes black, then the system crashes instantly and powers off. Sometimes it reboots, but most of the time it simply shuts down .....

MacBook Pros with NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M silicon making questionable graphics switching decisions

HP/Compaq :: HP Envy I5: Heat, Graphics Switching And Battery Life

Feb 21, 2010

I spent a couple hours reading through dozens of pages in the 3 separate HP Envy 15" Owner's Lounge threads and couldn't find a definite answer to the following questions--there was usually conflicting info.

In total there's over 1k pages, so despite considerable time spent perusing and searching perhaps I missed a definite answer somewhere in there. So hopefully, it's okay if I ask this outside of those threads for a conclusive answer:

1) Every review I've read mentioned the heat issue with the i7 system. Has anyone read an official review or gathered a consensus from users if the i5 version of the 15" model has lesser heat issues?

2) Does the i5 have graphics switching? And does the i7?

3) The i7 has very short battery life, which dissuades me from getting it. Is the i5 any better? What sort of usage are most i5 owners getting out of it?

Dell :: Graphics Card Seems To Have Disappeared

Apr 28, 2008

I have an inspiron 1720 which came equipped with an Nvidia 8600m GT. I have had it for a few months but recently found that my laptop says that I do not have a graphics card.

I went to Personalization>Display Settings>Adapter and found that it said my chip type: <unavailable> The same for adapter type, DAC type etc.

Also it said that my total graphics memory was <unavailable> and that my dedicated video memory etc was N/A.

Dell :: M170Dead Graphics Card

Jan 16, 2008

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.

Dell :: Gen 2 Graphics Card Fried

Nov 17, 2009

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.

Dell :: How To Get To The Graphics Card In My 1520

Oct 27, 2009

I've followed the instructions provided by Dell and have it at this point:

http://img269.imageshack.us/img269/9061/dsc00072bpj.jpg

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.

Dell :: XPS M1530, Best Graphics Card

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

Should I call and ask for the same specs as the 1340, or just accept the system they are offering me? .....

Dell :: My Warranty Just Expires .. And So Did My Graphics Card

Feb 27, 2010

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?

Dell :: M1710 Graphics Card Dead, Help

Oct 16, 2009

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
