i have overclocked 9600m gt using f.05 bios and rivatuner.i have been facing some problems with f.05 bios like slow start up and shutdown times,and some other problems.so i tried updating my bios which solved above problems but i cant oc 9600m gt anymore with any bios upto f.16 bios except f.05 bios.i have tried all bios from hp.is there anyway to oc 9600m gt using any other bios rather than f.05 bios.
Before I was highly contemplating about getting a dv5t witha 9600M GT but now all I see are 9200M GS...and this goes across the board for all the Dv series laptops (as far as I can see) Anyone know whats going on? This highly disturbs me since the 9200 GS is the ONLY option...even dell vostros have different GPUs.
I got my HP DV5t about 4-5 mos. ago. The graphics card which is a 9600m GT is definitely starting to fail. When ever I start to play graphically intensive games like COD4 or CS 1.6 the screen begins to freeze and the computer says the display driver failed while other times it causes a BSOD. This used to happen occasionally about 1-2 mos. ago but now it happens very often. I updated my drivers as soon as I got the laptop and always lifted the back for better airflow while gaming but apparently it didnt help.
i have a weird problem with my webcam , sometimes when i wanna use it , i open youcam it give me that it cant connect to the device so i need to close all applications that use this webcam while i have no softwares running so i have to restart in order to make it work one day i restarted and the same error occured again so i had to restart a second time :s also , to save threads i will ask here a question about my geforce 9600mgt performance it's good with games and i like it , though it was less than expected if u ask me when i play call of duty 5 and there's a scene where there's lots of smoke or fire from the fl;amethrower it the game becomes ridicously slow untill the smoke disappears and i will be able to play smoothly again anyway my question is not about this , i noticed that the performance of the card isn't always the same sometimes it works great and sometimes i notice that games barely run , even less demanding games like nba 2007 for example for example call of duty 4 , sometimes it works incredibly and some other times don't , isn't it weird ?
Are these safe to install on my DV7T? I notice HP has never issued an official graphics driver update for this notebook. The one and only version from them is from November 2008.
The release highlights has me salivating - particularly the bit about a 45% increase in Mirror's Edge with antialiasing enabled. Since there are about 7 months of driver updates in this release I should see some big improvements in my games.
what video drivers are working for other owners of the HDX16t.
I'm currently using the 179.04 driver from HP and have managed to overlcock it (see specs in sig below) by using RivaTuner 2.22 and following the advice in this thread HP DV5T 9600M GT Overclocking Guide
This yielded 5581 3DMarks and raised my WEI Gaphics score to 5.9 and Gaming Graphics to 5.5.
However, my experience with trying later drivers has not been stable.
any display oddities when using the 9600M on the 17-inch Crapbook Pro in spite of (or possibly, because of...?) the firmware update.
I get 'tearing' of the window contents quite often - e.g. when scrolling in Finder, but also similar display issues in other applications as well. It's pretty annoying. Before the probably inevitable call to Applecare I was wondering if there was anything I could do about it? I've seen it on both of the machines I use in the main, while I haven't seen it on the spare - although this is probably because I only power it on to keep the machine in sync.
I am ready to purchase a new MBP that I will use all day long with hotcomm voice and picture chat, email, powerpoint, word, excel,browsing, and a professional stock trading application called realtick that will run through vm ware or parallels and skype. This will not be my only computer but it is the one I would like to use the most. I am sensitive to heat problems and am considering the 2.4 processor because I have it in my head that it may run cooler. I recently used a thinkpad, (i know not a direct comparison), with a t9300 and dedicated video and it was so hot it could______ fill in blanks... Ultimately the heat is what killed the motherboard so I would like to stay as cool as reasonable.
I am considering the refurbished 2.4 15" with the nvida 9600m GT and 9400m GPU's because I like the price. I also think I can get some value from the dedicated video on my stock charts, (but am really not sure). I do not want to outsmart myself and get the wrong thing. Would someone here with some experience maybe give me an opinion if I should be looking at the 2.53 15" without the switchable video. The heat is one issue, but the other is my realtick charting software that will have to run under windows xp that I am concerned about with regard to needing the stronger GPU.
so tomorrow my friend will put his laptop together, (he will get the ati 3670 card, he could get the 4670 (if he paid some extra money) but he is not some super-gamer and said he could live with 3670 without any problem.
i knew that ati 3670 512mb and nvidia 9600M gt 512mb was pretty similar, but ati 3670 performs actaully better, (quite much better).
I managed to snag a minor graphics card upgrade for my laptop and installed it. I changed up my 9500m to a 9600m gt. Everything seems to be going great, just needed an HDTV to get it going For some reason it would only initially post video through the HDMI.
Anyway, my issue is, while the machine runs great in windows I can't for the life of me get it to display anything before that. Which includes the BIOS boot screen, the BIOS itself, the Boot Menu or even my Windows XP disc.
I have been playing with nvidia powermizer but as soon as i started scrolling down webpages, the gpu temp would increase. So i requested help and was referred to this thread: [How To] Use Rivatuner as a better "Powermizer" alternative
I followed the instructions but i was still getting mid 60's degress celcius on my gpu(i set it on low power 2d). I wasn't quite satisfied. After considerable research i found out a program called lubbo's fan control. There was a previous version released which was a fiasco. However, i noticed something. That one had a releae date of 20-jan-2010. I decided to try it and wow!! That is a keeper!!! I can select the maximum rpm of my fans, the minimum rpm. I can even go below 2000rpm (But i didnt risk it). The most interesting feature is that i can select what us the maximum temperature i want my system to be. I chose 60c and now, while i'm typing this, my gpu is reading 56c. That's the first time i'm getting a steady sub 60 temp. It isnt going less and it isnt going more than 56c. My fans rpm are at 5000 but while listening to a music or even using it without music, it isnt that disturbing. Also, it will kill your keyboard manager. Who cares and who needs it. We can control the keyboard from the bootcamp manager.
One last thing that i will add is that this software detects both gpu's (9400m + 9600m), a proof that the apple guys are being lazy to provide the gpu switching software. Tested working in w7. To make it start everytime you log on, just create a task and schedule it to run when you have logged on.
I have got a Acer 5930G John Lewis model. I flashed my Nvidia 9600M GT 512mb to overclock it. Everything was ok initially and I was able to play most games maxxed out.
After about 9 months things started going wrong. Initially the laptop would only crash when playing a heavy game such as FEAR or crysis for a long period of time. Then as time went on, the laptop become less tolerant to any GPU processing and now crashes even crashes when playing Quake Live or CS 1.6.
Migrating to Win 7 temporarily fixed the problem, but then things quicky went wrong again.
Before making any modifications, I had backed up all my files on a USB drive as I had no optical media at the time, unfortunately, the drive was placed into a mac by a friend by accident and subsequently formatted. OOPS.
So, I have lost all my original NVflash files and Im stuck with a 9600M that can't take it anymore. Is there anyway I can reclock the timings on the Gfx card or am I screwed?
I just want to get an idea of the power of the 9600m GT video card that comes with the macbook pro's. Now on my desktop computer I have a 3 year old ATI 1600x 512mb PCI-e video card which is definitely getting old. My question is can anybody tell me how the 9600m GT compares to the ATI 1600x, is it better? this way I can get an idea of the power of the 9600m GT because I know pretty well what the 1600x is capable of.
