Sony :: Vaio Z Series And 8GB Support

Mar 20, 2010

how to upgrade my VGN-Z36GD to 8GB.

I've read through the thread "How to make 1st to 3rd Generations of Vaio Z support 8GB" and there are some promising leads there especially from ZugZug an Sniper_Sung but the thread kind of abruptly ends without a clear resolution.

Another thread indicates that the victory was celebrated too early and the 8GB doesn't exactly work.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Does Y500 Support SLI

May 22, 2013

I have this Lenovo Y500 with Nvidia GT 750M, and there's a sticker on it that says "Ultrabay".

1- Can I get another GFX and insert it instead of the DVD Rom ? FOR SURE ? 

2- Should this additional GFX be another 750M , or can it be a more recent model ? 

3- Is it guaranteed that SLI will work under Windows 8.1 ? 

4- Will there be a significant improvement in performance after adding another GFX ? Are there any tests and validated benchmarks ? 

5- Where can I get such a good, compatible additional GFX that will surely work with my Y500 laptop ?

Lenovo B / G Series :: How Many GB Of Ram Can G500 Support

Apr 5, 2014

I have a G500 with a 4gb of ram and I want to install the maximum that this laptop can support.

After searching on the Net I saw here: 


saying:   Up to 8GB PC3-12800 DDR3 SDRAM 1600 MHz
On  the other hand here: 



DDR3 16 GB 1.600 Mhz [2 SODIMM (1x 2 GB / 2x 2 GB / 1x 4 GB / 1x 2 GB + 1x 4 GB / 2x 4 GB / 1x 8 GB / 2x 8 GB)
meaning that you can put 2 * 8 GB = 16GB maximum.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Y50 Adapter Has Limited Support Message

Dec 6, 2014

I'm using a seconday (spare) power adapter at home, for my y50.  The adapter is a 20 volt / 90 watt unit.  My primary adapter (in work) is the original adapter that came with the Y50, a 20 volt / 120 watt unit.   When using the laptop with the spare adapter (the 90 watt unit) I get a Lenovo Energy Manager message that pops up stating "Adapter has limited support" and "Performance will be affected if the power adapter cannot provide enough charge".  Presumably the laptop would need more than 90 watts to drive it if the CPU and /or video were working hard?  Do you see any issues using that adapter for day to day work, that is, not gaming?  Also, can the messge be disabled?

Dell :: Upgrade E6500 CPU To QX9300?

Mar 16, 2010

I have an E6500 with a T9400 CPU (Core 2 Duo, 2.53 GHz, 1066MHz FSB).
I would like to upgrade it to a CPU that is either a quad core or dual core with hyper-threading. The only CPU I can see that is even a possibility is the QX9300 (Core 2 Extreme, 2.53 GHz, 1066MHz FSB)..
The CPU I have is listed by Intel as supporting BGA479 and PGA478 sockets. But, I don't know which my motherboard has...
The QX9300 is only listed to support PGA478 sockets.
Reading on here, it seems like even if I am able to upgrade, I might be opening myself up to heat problems... ..
OTOH, I also read that the the E6500 is identical to the M4400 except for the lid. And the M4400 is available with the QX9300 CPU...
So, can anybody tell me if I can replace my CPU with the QX9300? If so, would it require anything more than just buying the new CPU?..

HP/Compaq :: Intel XTU With Qx9300 HDX18T

Jul 12, 2009

HP recently added the QX9300 CPU to the list of processors for the HDX18T Notebook. My question is, will HP Include the Intel Extreme Tuning Utility with the notebook? The Intel XTU will allow you to overclock the QX9300 Extreme processor... it would be stupid to pay so much money for the cpu without being able to overclock it... Intel claims that the utility will ship with OEM systems?

Lenovo Z40-70 P/Y/Z Series :: Intel VGA Driver From Downloads Support Page Is Not Working

Jan 20, 2015

just got a Z40-70 59436180 w/ nvidia geforce and installed it with windows 7 (32 bit),the nvidia vga driver setup told me that i have to install intel vga driver first before installing the nvidia one..
the problem is i can't install the intel vga driver which i got from the lenovo download support page (the filename is "ivg200w732.exe"),when i run it, it says something like my computer doesn't have the minimum requirements for the driver to install..well it looks like it is the wrong driver, because when i explore the installation directory, i found a "x64"-named directory... and no "x86" or "32bit" or anything similar...

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: Support 3-monitor Desktop Through HDMI And VGA On W530

Mar 27, 2014

I can extend my W530 Win8.1 display to a Dell monitor via HDMI OR a HP monitor via VGA but not both simultaneously. If I plug in both monitors simultaneously, then the HP goes to sleep and the Dell reproduces the laptop display, with no option to extend.
Is the w530 capable of extending to two monitors? If yes, do I need to get different cables or something?

Lenovo W540 ThinkPad W Series :: Middle Mouse Button Support?

Jul 24, 2014

I've run my Lenovo laptops (on a T510 now) for years using the middle button (the "scroll" button) as a plain old middle mouse button.  The ultranav tool has always had an option to make it act like a MMB, with no fancy scroll function, etc.
I just bought a new W540, and found, much to my distress, that such an option doesn't seem to exist on the W540!  This is very important to me as I run Cygwin X server and rely on the middle mouse button to to paste in Xterms and other X apps.  This is a real showstopper for me!
I noticed a "three finger tap" function that's supposed to act as a MMB.  But it doesn't seem to work in Cygwin X.  Plus, it's not the best solution.
Is there any way to do this with the new Ultranav drivers?

Dell :: Deciding Between M4400 And M6400 (both With QX9300)

Nov 21, 2009

I bought two laptops from Dell Outlet M4400 and M6400. Really need help deciding which one I should keep (and add to my signature) and which one to send back. I am sure this community can help me make an informed decision. Thanks.

My usage:

-Development - VS 2008, MS SQL and tools.
-Graphics - Limited Photoshop (Beginner to Mid level)
-Virtual Machines - 1 to 2 at any given time
-Always ON configuration
-NO Gaming - sorry I suck at games!
-Occasional Travel

M4400: $1500

QX9300 - 2GB - 80GB 72K RPM - RGB LED LCD - NVidia 1700
My plan is to swap the 80 GB with my tablet PC's 120 GB and install 320 GB in modular bay also get 4 GB RAM bringing total cost to about $1650

Pros: Manageable size, RGB LED
Cons: Additional cost for RAM and modular bay HDD, Not sure about TrueLife Glossyness yet!

M6400: $1700
QX9300 - 4GB - 120 GB SSD + 250 GB 72K - WXGA LCD - Nvidia 2700

Pros: Pretty much everything
Cons: Low res LCD and BIG+Heavy even for occasional travel or meetings.

I could find cheaper configurations but I picked the one's with QX9300. There are some available in both machines that are T9900 and are ~$300 cheaper.

1. Am I making the right decision by getting QX9300 given my somewhat non power usage? Is heat an issue in either? I do want to future proof at least for 2 years.

2. If I go for lower CPU should I go for x9100 or T9900 or Q9000/9100, they do show up occasionally on the outlet site.

3. I really find the second hard drive option useful. Does the slightly higher mobility of m4400 justify additional cost to buy and install the mod bay HDD?

4. Are the prices reasonable for the configurations above? I can find a m4400 with T9900/4GB/250GB/WXGA for ~$1150 and a M6400 with T9900/4GB/NO SSD for ~$1200

HP/Compaq :: Anyone Have Original8530w Elitebook And Qx9300 Quad Also

Oct 10, 2009

i recently bought this laptop and im running stress tests on this laptop w/ prime95 and told by a fellow board member(who has been of wonderful help) that they detect issue w/ my heatsink mounting/paste for my quad core qx9300. it was stated that thermal throttle shouldnt happen until temperatures into the 100 celsius range on a laptop?

1) i start the test and all 4 cores are steady running through tests

2) after 3 min, the first 2 cores max out at 91, 90 celsius while the last 2
are 89,88. The first 2 cores start going down in temp to about 76, 75 and
never complete another test while the last 2 cores are 85, 86 celsius and
run through an additional 8 tests afterwards.

can anyone give more feedback or possibly try these tests also? i run 64 bit vista also.

Sony :: How To Make 3rd Z Support 8GB

Sep 30, 2009

It is known that due to marketing strategies Sony decided to limit the maximum memory supported by Z690 (aka Z3) down to 6GB, despite the fact that there are reports about Z1, Z2 and Z4 installed 8GB successfully without a problem.

The working way is the stupid (and possibly risky) way:

1. Important: Clear all passwords in BIOS! (including main, user and HDD passwords) otherwise you may have to flash back to your current version to access BIOS settings.....

Sony :: Petition For Support Of The Windows 7 Upgrade For Your Model

Oct 22, 2009

I have a FZ280 E/B. I spent over $1800 on it 2 years ago. Sony is not providing support for the upgrade. Not only are they stating they won't upgrade they offer us the opportunity to buy a new notebook that will support the OS. How nice is that?

I don't know if we have any recourse here. I have already sent a scathing email to Sony support. I will continue to do so until I hear a response I like. I've been a life long Sony supporter/customer. Unless this is resolved that will stop. If anyone has any ideas feel free to chime in.

I realize we may be powerless here but I know I don't enjoy being screwed continually by Sony. They know Vista was terrible and didn't offer the 'downgrade' to XP option for our model. Now the 'better' (remains to be seen yet) OS comes out and they won't support that either.
