I was playing around with mine to get it to 645/700, but it gives way too many artifacts.
I was just wondering what everyone elase is runnign here with the same card 521 MB 7950gtx and laptop. And how in the hell do you keep it cool?
Also I am using 97.92 driver, since I cant get any 100XX drivers to recognize my 22" external LCD, but now I see in the Nvidia control panel that my monitor is not showing up. I mean it trasfers picture right, but its not shown in the options...
I'm trying to figure out what is going on with my 7950GTX. Any drivers I use in XP have problems. ALL the drivers I have used (93.77, 94.22, 158.18, 158.45, 163.44) have had my LCD go to Black then come back to the normal image, almost as if the LCD lost power and was turned back on.
However, When I put Vista on to see if that would fix the problem, I was plagued with nvlddmkm.sys has stopped responding and has recovered errors, with the same LCD problem as in XP.
Also, while I'm in XP, I MUST disable NvMcTray form starting up or I will blue screen after I login and see the nVidia icon in my system tray.
I've been having problems with my video card. (M1710 with a 7950GTX card). The card was overheating and even after applying AS5 and cleaning the vents it was reaching around 100c in games. After about a year, i started to also get memory parity errors...
Long story short, i contacted dell and they mailed me a new mb and a new video card.
I just got it now, and i am going to open the rig and replace the video card.. I am just not sure about the mother board, should i replace it as well ?
The parts that dell sent are refurbished parts, and as i know that my m.board is working i am not sure whether i should replace it or not.
Does anyone have an external drive connected via esata, ideally to a XPS 1645 but if not any other XPS 16 will do, and if so what sort of transfer speeds do you get?
I ask as I need to sort out some external storage and I was all set to get a small cheap NAS such as a Netgear Readynas Duo but from the reading I've done the transfer speeds seem pretty low even when using a gigabit network (around 24 MB/s reading and less than that writing)
I just got a 7950GTX for my Dell E1705 from Ebay, my questions is, is there any way I can check to make sure this is indeed 7950GTX not some fake 7900GTX with bios mod. I just ran a quick 3DMark 05 with 90w power supply and got like 7250 score... I am waiting for that 130W power supply,
I just bought a 7950GTX for my e1705/9400 and installed fine. The board seems to work smooth in both XP and Vista. But since I want to work with quad-buffer-stereo modes (in XP), I want to turn this board to a quadro one. As far as I read, 7950GTX is the same board with FX3500M.
This transformation job could be done either with two ways. Software... using Rivatuner bla bla. And by flashing the board to another using nvflash and -6 -5 -4 parms. For my own reasons, I didnt want to do it with any kind of software and I tried the hard way.... Result??? Nothing!!! After I flashed my 7950GTX to a FX3500M, on the first reboot everything became black! The board seems to be not recognized by my machine or was not working So, I had to re-flash it back again to it's original state.
Does anybody from here has already done this before? Because from what I saw personally, must be one of the following cases:
1) the 7950GTX cannot run with an FX3500M bios! So the boards are NOT exactly the same.
2) the bios I used for quadro (FX3500M G71 board p469h7g v05.71.22.45.05) is not compatible with my board (7950GTX G71 board p468h6 v05.71.22.46.06) and I may need another
3) my Inspiron e1705/9400 with the latest bios A09 (but also with the older A08) cannot recognize and boot properly with any FX3500M board.
In case that someone has a FX3500M already installed and working on a 1705/9400, please let me know about board's bios version and I may need a copy of his rom.
Also, If somebody knows if this could be done please let me know too.
As more and more 7950 users were complaining of Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) installs on drivers I began to look into the issue personally. I was able to track down its cause to the ever popular coolbits. Apparently, for us 7950GTX users, this registry entry is not so cool. I will give three strategies for repairing this problem. Note that both pre-install and post-install refer to the driver installation.
Caution: All three of these methods will prevent you from being able to use the Nvidia Control Panel to overclock.
This is not a big issue since the control panel interface for coolbits isn't all that great anyway. Just use ATITool, NTune, or RivaTuner to overclock your card if you wish.
Pre-Install BSOD FIX
INF Modification If you are using a LV2G driver then this is the quickest method. Open up the driver INF and remove the coolbits line. It most likely looks like this:
Code: HKLM,"SOFTWARENVIDIA CorporationGlobalNVTweak", CoolBits, %REG_DWORD%, 0xffffffff So just search for "cool" within the INF and delete the whole line. Proceed with the installation. You should be good to go.
Post-Install BSOD FIX You may be forced to use one of these methods if your driver set does not allow access to the INF.
Registry Overwriting I will post an explanation later but all you need to do is download this file Most likely you will have to install it in safe mode (F5 on startup) Once you install it, reboot. Your problems should cease.
Registry Deletion Start -> Run -> Regedit Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWARENVIDIA CorporationGlobalNVTweak and remove the coolbits entry
Just got a 7950GTX as a replacement for my 7900GS and after searching for the right drivers, finally manged to install it. To my dismay, it is performing less than a stock 7900GS! On my 7900GS I used to get 6300 and with 7950GTX I am getting 6200 WTF!
Currently using forceware 94.22. I am hoping its not a hardware problem. Can anyone suggest a stable and good performing driver for the 7950GTX?
Im thinking about purchasing a FX2500M from ebay, but my question is, will it be able to perform the same as a 7950GTX if I OC it?
Because I heard that the 7950GTX is just a OC'd 7900GTX / 2500M. And I believe the difference between 7900GTX and 2500M is none, except the FX2500M is optimized for OpenGL stuff, which actually makes it better than a 7900GTX? Am I correct?
Also, does the FX2500M have a higher OC limit than the 7950GTX, since the 7950GTX is already OC'd?
Not sure if I should be worried. I upgraded my XPS 1710 from a 7900GS to 7950GTX in Dec. Running UT3 and Stalker I have been hitting 86 degrees. All seems to be working well, just not sure if I should be concerned...I have necer maxed over 80 yet.
My HP dv7-3079wm gets fairly hot under normal conditions, between 55C-65C. I should be getting a cooling pad for it soon, but I was wondering if theres a way to control the fan speeds? Once it hits about 60C the fan speeds up and cools it down to about 55C and then slows again. Speedfan doesn't show any fans, though I use it to monitor my temps in my taskbar. So, does anyone know if theres another way to control fan speeds? Or a way to get SpeedFan to detect mine? And I even have the back propped up a little to help it ventilate better...
I have the HP Envy X360 with an Intel i5 processor in it. I also bought a Seagate USB 3.0 portable hard drive. Ā I am only getting speeds between 20-30 MB/s between them. Why? Ā And yes, the drive is plugged into one of the two USB 3.0 ports.
I just got a memory parity error. I have run memtest, prime95 and gpu tests and all were great. I did some reading and it seems it can be gpu driver related. I am currently using the latest dell driver 94.22 for the 7950gtx
I was checking my hard drive with hdtune and saw something interesting...the program said that my hard drive is SATA I. Am I mistaken or is this for real? I have a CTO VGN-FW490J, got it in June 2009. The hard drive is a Fujitsu MHZ2320BJ. I did a quick google and the descriptions say it is SATA II, so I'm confused. Is it the motherboard that determines the SATA speeds or the hard drive? What's even more confusing is that in the official FW thread, someone said they installed a SSD and they're getting sequential reads at about 250mb/sec so that person definitely is in the SATA II range. I attached an image of the part that shows my hard drive info.
I have an acer 5920 and from day one the download speeds have not been above 15kbs this is wireless and wired, i have re-installed vista, changed the hdd and turned off protocol 6, none of these have helped,
I also have a 9304 aspire and have no problems with download speeds on this so i presume it is not the router
Using Transmission to download a torrent, I've noticed that download speeds are consistently hovering around 15% of what my connection is capable of downloading -- which is to say, it's still a triple-digit kb/s, but quite a bit slower than it should be.
In Transmission, my port setting tells me that the chosen port is wide open, which leads me to think that neither Snow Leopard's firewall nor my Time Capsule / router is getting in the way, even without me checking specific settings. The download speed in Transmission is set to unlimited, and even if I set upload speed to 60% of what your usual residential cable internet line can handle, there doesn't seem to be an improvement.
The online Glasnost test tells me that there is no ISP throttling being done.
The torrents can have anywhere from seven seeds to dozens, to hundreds, and into the thousands, and can be left to run for minutes to a couple of hours. It doesn't matter. I've also seen torrents connected to north of 300 seeders without an improvement in speed.
