HP/Compaq :: Softmod GT 230M Into A GT 330M

Jan 7, 2010

Is it possible to softmod a GT 230M in a dv6 quad into a GT 330M? It would require overclocking the core by 75MHz and the shaders by 165MHz and then getting the drivers to recognize it as a GT 330M instead of a GT 230M. Reason I would want to do this is for the added performance and so that the graphics card is still the "latest generation". How hard do you think it would be to do this and how much more subjectable to overheating do you think it would be if done?

HP/Compaq :: 130M Gt HDX16T Vs DV6T 230M GT

Oct 18, 2009

ordered a HDX 16T when it was on discount for the 850 for 1920x1200 screen, 7450 2.1 ghz process, 4 gig ram, geforce 130M GT card.

Now the I7 dv6t is there with the 230M GT, no backlit keyboard or blueray or HD screen but...

For video gaming will the 230GT be a huge improvement?

What would you guys do? Opinions?

I can get the dv6t with 25% back by 12 midnight

Sony :: Second Life On Z11 Gt 330m

Apr 16, 2010

I posted this in the main thread (where it got instantly buried in the message avalanche)

Question regarding the gt330m

I could swear that the very first time I fired up SecondLife on the Z, that it recognized the gt330m and used it. Also, I'm pretty sure I checked that the cpu utilization was quite low as it ran.

Sony :: Z, 330M And Overheating

Jan 19, 2010

I owned previous Z with P8400 and it was very hot when 100% loaded with 3D-applications (3DMark or games) in speed mode. It is known to overheat with T9900 as well. Now Z uses GT 330M which outputs almost twice as much heat as 9300M GS (I wouldn't count i5 because it has same TDP as Core 2 Duo). Other manufacturers aren't putting 330M in such a small enclosure mainly due to thermal limitations.

Sony posted few images showing its heatsink and fan. I don't see significant changes in cooling system and I'm sick of that.

I don't want to pay premium price and then find 330M unusable due to overheating.

I presume this is Windows 7-only?

I don't own a Mac (yet), so I'm unsure about how Nvidia/homebrew supports OC'ing in OSX (or if they do at all).

Needless to say, this is fantastic news for me and everyone else needing to bleed more from a GPU than what the 330M offers by default. that's almost a 30% increase right there, folks..........................

Sony :: GT 330M Throttled Can It Be Fixed

Mar 9, 2010

I've just got a Sony VAIO CW2 with a GT 330M GPU and have read that the chip is throttled from the default settings.

The source is a review at http://www.notebookjournal.de/tests/...w2s1-nkrt-1101, translated with Google Translate.

According to http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-...M.22437.0.html the GT 330M should run at a speed that is higher than what is reported by CPU-Z:

Core Speed: 575 MHz vs my speed of 475 MHz
Shader Speed: 1265 MHz vs my speed of 1045 MHz
Memory Speed: 1066 MHz vs my speed of 680 MHz

Sony :: Why Do CWs From 's Websites Not Have Nvidia 330m

Mar 11, 2010

I checked both the Canadian and US website, and they dont offer 330ms anymore, instead its 211m / 310m, and they perform at about half the ability of the 330ms

Why? It's such a huge downgrade!

Sony :: Nvidia GT 330m Overclockers

Feb 3, 2010

using this gpu in the CW or F series.

Right now I'm using Nvidia tools to oc:

650 gpu clock
800 memory
1550 shader

I have seen a max temp of 70c. I would say I'm getting on average a boost of 5-10fps.

Sony :: Vaio Z11 GT 330m VRAM Type

Apr 13, 2010

I can't seem to confirm what type of VRAM the GT 330m in the Z11 is. All specs listings seem to be inconsistent!

If someone could point me to a screenshot using GPU-Z to verify, I'd be very appreciated!

Reason I ask is it seems the new Macbook Pro 15 inch models come with GDDR3, and I have a hunch that the z11 is just DDR3.

Sony :: VAIO FNVIDIA Drivers Update (197.16) For GT 330M (10DE-0A29)

Apr 1, 2010

Update: NVIDIA released 197.44 drivers for notebooks(with OpenGL 4 support for Fermi GPU), GT300M only gets support up to 3.3

I used the same inf file(changing drivers' version and date, of course) and everything is working as expected.
Just follow the same instructions if you wanna try.
- 197.44 inf file and instructions: Midtown's 197.44 Instructions.zip (Mirrors: Megaupload, Hotfile)
- NVIDIA's original drivers: Download for Windows 7(64-bit)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So I managed to install the new NVIDIA drivers for laptops, 197.16 on my VAIO F after modifying the inf file myself for a few hours. I'm no expert, but I guess it worked out fine.

Here's the link for inf file & instructions: Midtown's 197.16 Instructions.zip

Disclaimer: I'm not responsible for any hardware/software failure.

After testing the new drivers for 24hrs:
- No flicker at low brightness
- No uneven brightness after pressing the "Display Off" button
- Fan not constantly running
- "Normal" temperature compared to Sony's "certified" graphic drivers
- No problems after sleep/restart........................

HP/Compaq :: How To OC This CPU

Oct 21, 2009

Does anyone have a good way to OC this laptop other than using ClockGen? I am basically wondering if there is a BIOS option. I know there are some OC guides out there, but this laptop is almost 3 years old, and as far as I can tell does not have an option in the BIOS. Also, my proc is the T2600, not the one is this review, but other than that exactly the same. I am looking to play around with this because it is old and I dont care too much if I fry it since my new hotness is on the way.

HP/Compaq :: Looking For New OS

Jun 30, 2009

Ive just about had it with Vista on my laptop and want to try a new OS before I junk this thing. Is anyone running Win7 or Ubuntu on a HP DV5z AMD 64 bit laptop? The machine is about a year old and I have 4gb of RAM and the thing is a dog. Ive used Ubuntu in the past on Dell laptops and its a pain to get everything running wireless drivers, flash, etc. Win7 being a RC may or may not have everything up to speed on for my machine.

So, if you have Win7 or Ubuntu on a HP DV5z please give me a shout, good or bad.

Feb 16, 2009

Can't really see much difference in these models....looking at Best Buy

Other than 17 vs 16 inch screen are their any benefits to build quality from 1 to the other?

I will be travelling so I would prefer the lesser HDX 16 incher but build quality is a concern

I travel by plane, train, bus every weekend so it needs to be able to handle a little beating

HP/Compaq :: Hp Dv2

Jul 14, 2009

I'm am deciding whether to buy this laptop for school use. It has a great size, stylish, and decent specs for a laptop that is so lightweight. The only turn off is that it was made for entertainment, but should this laptop do well for word processing, spreadsheets, and web surfing?

Would the 9 cell battery last for more than 5-6 hours? My budget is also under 700$ but it can stretch a little.

HP/Compaq :: DV2 Or DV3

Jul 29, 2009

I'm heading off to school, and these stylish, affordable notebooks have caught my eyes. The only problem is that I only get 2-3 hours of battery life on these notebooks although I can buy an extra battery. What I"m mainly doing is word processing, spreadsheets, iTunes, and web browsing but not all at the same time.

Here are my main questions and concerns:

Do these notebooks have good build quality?Is there any other way to charge the battery without having it in the notebook?Do they get hot?

I may have more questions to ask later.

I am buying this notebook in Canada.

Seeing that the battery tests I've seen on some reviews, they are surfing the internet with Wi-Fi on. I will not be, I'll usually be word processing. Should it last maybe 3 hours?

How long does the 9 cell last on the DV3?
