Sony :: Changing A CPU In FW

Apr 27, 2010

I'm thinking of upgrading a CPU in my FW . Currently i have P8700 and i'am looking to buy a P9700, T9800,T9900 or even X9100.

One thing just consernes me . Will the bios recognize (notebook work ) with these processors ? P9700, T9800,T9900 i supposse would have to work fine , but i am not sure for the x9100 .

Some opinions ? Also does anyone have these processors (or p9x00, t9x00 ) and say something about their temperatures

Dec 23, 2009

where the settings of the fan's silent mode are saved?

I think they are not saved properly when you change it in Vaio Control Center.

My SR's fan is running nearly permanently though I'm only surfing, Office-ing, etc....

I have the newest european SR5 with Win7, bought yesterday.

HP/Compaq :: Volume Changing

May 22, 2010

Every time I change the volume on my notebook via keyboard shortcuts, a volume... "window" pops up and indicates how much i decrease or increase it. Problem is, that while I'm gaming or watching a movie, that indicator is always on top of any application i have opened, so it makes some games stutter, and if i accidentally click it, my game minimizes on the bar. Is there anyway to disable this feature on vista?

Dell :: Changing The XPS M1330 Motherboard

Aug 16, 2009

I recently bought the XPS M1330 from a friend and wasn't familiar with the current issues caused by the nVidia GeForce 8400M GS. Lately, I've been looking for a solution to the problem...

I was reading about the Cooper Mod in another thread and it just seems like a temporary fix...

So, I was wondering has anyone tried manually installing the Intel version of the motherboard, since it seems to have no overheating problems. Has anyone tried a different motherboard to fix the overheating?

Dell :: Changing From G Wireless Adapter To N

Jun 5, 2009

has a Dell Studio 15 (like mine) that came with a wireless G adapter but she wants to get an N router and wants to try a N wireless adapter also.

The Dell 1510 seems to be the cheapest but there are several listed, is this what she needs and are they the same?



Will it be a matter of removing a screw that holds down the card, disconnecting 2 small wires, reconnecting them and then installing software from a disc?

Dell :: Will Changing A CPU Void Warranty?

Jan 21, 2009

1) Will changing the processor on a dell xps 1330 void the warranty? Just checking, by mobo is fried, and they're coming out to replace it.

Just want to make sure that I didn't screw myself by upgrading the processor (processor had nothing to do with it, upgraded over six months ago).

2) dell told me that there is a "known problem" with Nvidia cards frying the dell.

Dell :: Changing Win 7 DPI Settings Without Restarting Or Logging Off

Nov 3, 2009

Is there anyway to change the dpi / magnification settings in Windows 7 without having to log off and back on or restart the machine?

I'm looking at a Studio 1557 laptop as a desktop replacement with a 1080p (1920 X 1080) screen which I think will make the text and icons quite small.

I can easily change the DPI to 120 (125%) or 144 (150%) and make everything readable which is great however when it's at a desk it's going to be connected to two 20 inch plus monitors and these require the normal 96dpi (100%).

The problem is the machine will be frequently connected and disconnected and having to close and reopen all applications to restart the machine properly is a real pain.

Windows XP used to warn you about having to restart but if you didn't things were still resized. With Win 7 nothing happens until you do.

Dell :: Changing Thermal Paste - M1530

Apr 22, 2009

Well i finally decided that i should give this a try after seeing my temps creep up by about 1 degreeC per week. I just ordered some Arctic Silver 5. Ive looked at all the thermal paste topics here and still have a few questions. Firstly, what exactly is the thermal pad and do i have to worry about it? I saw that some people had to remove the pad but when i read through tutorial i didnt see anything about taking off or replacing a thermal pad.
Secondly, when applying the thermal paste, do i want to cover the whole "black square" of the cpu/gpu with a thin layer?

And lastly, i heard that this may void your warranty. I was wondering, if i did break my lappy somehow, couldnt i just clean it off so that when the tech guy comes i just claim that i never even opened it up?

Dell :: E6500WUXGA Changing Screen Resolution

Dec 26, 2008

I just bought a Latitude E6500 with a WUXGA LCD with Nvidia NVS 160M to replace my old Inspiron 8600 also with WUXGA screen.

I am puzzled with one thing : with my old 8600 I was able to change resolution from 1920X1200 way back to 800X600 without any loss of quality. The screen always ramained crisp and clear.

Now, with my new E6500, anything less than 1920 X 1200 gets fuzzy. I read all about the "native resolution" speach, but what I can't understand is why the old laptop was able to show all resolutions properly, and the new on doesn't.

I also want the new screen tosupport a higher resolution, would this mean I need a new gfx card, as I'm sure it uses a intel one built into mobo ....

Dell :: Warranty- Changing My Thermal Paste On My CPU And GPU Chipset

Dec 2, 2008

I was thinking of changing my thermal paste on my CPU and GPU chipset, many ppl out there saying this would void the warranty and hell yeah it will, but the question is, will DELL engineer would be able to differentiate between stock silicone paste and new thermal paste (for my case is Coolermaster Nanofusion), anyone ever get busted by modding XPS?

Unless you change the obvious purple/pink thermal pad at the ACPI chipset to copper sheet then it's a totally different story.

Dell :: Studio 15 Changing The Processor + Graphics Card

Nov 18, 2008

I'm currently wondering how easy (or even if its possible) changing the processor in a studio 15 would be.

Secondly i'm curious as to expensive a new processor would cost, 2.5GHz preferably as my current processor is 2.0GHz.

My second question is: Can the graphics card be changed without soldering in the studio 15. I'm unsure whether the graphics card is integrated or not.

My current graphics card is: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3450 (256mb)

I was wondering how much a new card would cost and the difficulty to replace.

I want to replace the internal Intel 3945 to a GigaByte GN-WI01GT with Atheros chipset.

HP/Compaq :: Changing The Advance Boot Options In Msconfig

Nov 9, 2009

When changing the advance boot options in msconfig, I think I have found a bug. with the option of maximum memory selected, after the restart the computer will only read 3GB (when it should be 4GB). Also when going back in the advance menu of the boot tab, the maximum memory value is 0. (I also have no GUI boot selected, if that changes anything)
