Dell :: E1705/M1710/M1730 FRAPS Benchmarks Thread

Oct 8, 2007

Looking to get some IN-GAME benchmarks with FRAPS, and see what different people's rigs are doing. Why are the M1730 guys allowed? we can see what the new M1730 can do, and see if it is worth slapping another $3,000 to $5,000 down on the table.

1- To rule out as many variables as we can, we should all use FRAPS for benchmarking. F-11 is the default key to start a benchmark.
2- Tell us about your rig. Be specific about hardware, OS, clockspeeds, and drivers. Having that info in your signature is even better.
3- Cut and paste straight from the FRAPS log that is created in C:Fraps. Be sure to specify what resolution you're using because FRAPS does not document this.
4- Specify what graphical settings you are using for that game. Saying 'Full Graphical Settings' means that you have every graphic option for that game maxed out, turned on, etc. In Bioshock you could say 'Full Graphical Settings, but Dynamic Lighting is Off'. In Oblivion it would be nice if you specify outdoors or indoors. You get the point.
5- TURN V-SYNC OFF. If your scores are pegged at 30FPS or 60FPS, that's nice, but tells us nothing. If you say 'Full Graphical Settings', we are to assume that V-Sync is off. You don't need to mention it.

It is obvious to me that this is not as foolproof as an ORB link. People can edit the text file to say whatever they want it to.

Dell :: M1730 Benchmarks Please

Oct 8, 2009

i was wondering if anyone has the dell m1730 can run some benchmarks.

it doesn't matter if it is stocked overclocked or whatever.

just post up your system specs and if you are overclocked (if so please state your clocks if you do not wish to give out your clocks, just say ""max overclock")

if you don't know what to benchmark, here's some stuff you can do.

also can you please tell us your settings on the game when you run it.

i have been searching but it's dead and the owner's lounge is way to big to search every page. it doesn't matter what gpu/cpu you have. as long as you state what you have.

Dell :: M1730 Vs M6300 Thread

Jul 23, 2008

I'm not looking to debate the geforce vs quadro performance nor do I want people to tell me to wait for the 9m series cards, just a couple quick questions.

Does the m1730 have a docking port? From what I can find, I'm thinking it does not. For that matter, does the m6300 have one? I think it does...

Can an 8800gtx from an m1730 be put into an m6300? If not, I'll be fine with the 3600m, but I prefer geforce cards.

If yes, where can you get an 8800gtx and how much do they cost? I've seen people saying anything from over $2000 to $700.... which is quite a difference.

I guess while I'm at it, are there any other huge issues that I've maybe overlooked? I'm thinking about things like the huge LCD problems that everyone experienced with light leakage and whatnot on the m170/9300 series and even overflowing into the next gen stuff iirc.

Dell :: E1705 Vs. M1710

Feb 17, 2008

So I bought an Inspiron 9400 bout two years ago, its a piece of shi*t ... i've had i dunno about 6 or 7 service calls now .... ANYWAYS

When I went to purchase a laptop I was looking at both the XPS and the laptop I decided on (E1705), and the only thing I noticed that was different was that the XPS was substantially more expensive, and had a different look ...

Not to insult anyone's taste or anything, but the look of the XPS is tacky as hell lol ... I mean, its inundated with the word XPS everywhere (even on the touchpad ... ?), i've never seen one in person ... maybe someone can explain to me haha

Anyways, the purpose of this post isn't about the aesthetic differences between the two series of laptops lol. A friend of mine who is in the market to purchase a laptop has asked me what the differences were ... and I couldnt answer him (hence why i'm posting)

What i'm asking then is, other then its shell, assuming the CPU, GPU, RAM, display are identical what is it that makes the XPS better and at a much higher price? Is the motherboard better, or are XPSes less prone to random breaking? If anyone can differentiate the two for me i'd appreciate it, so I can help my friend out before he drops $2.5k on a laptop

Dell :: E1705/M1710

Oct 7, 2007

This guide will get lengthy over time. To search for a keyword in the guide, use the CTRL+F command.


GPU OVERCLOCKING: Go here, and carefully follow the instructions for your specific GPU: [url] All GPU's and systems are NOT created equal, meaning Johny Knucklehead's benchmarks may always be better than yours, even though you both have the same hardware.

IF YOU'VE GOT A BLACK SCREEN OF DEATH (BSOD) DUE TO A BAD GPU BIOS FLASH: [url] ZZpulp has made an excellent guide for recovering from a bad GPU BIOS flash.

Gaming laptops get HOT. That's one of those prices we pay for having a portable platform capable of playing Bioshock while you sit on your duff at the airport. Before you make a post complaining that your laptop is getting too hot, make sure to get some real numbers with one of these tools. Maybe it's just you.

If your laptop is getting hotter than it used to, there are a few things to try before you lose your mind and start posting new threads with lots of exclamation marks.

- If you changed a component prior to the problem, you should start troubleshooting there.

- If this problem has crept up over time, you more than likely just need to clean the fan and heatsink area of your laptop. Dust, lint, pet hair, and other things are constantly being sucked through that area by your cooling fans. Most clean out their heatsinks every few months, or you can just do it whenever you notice those temps creeping back up.
Using compressed/canned air. I don't recommend this for a couple of reasons.

- This will work to an extent, but you aren't going to get everything out of there.

The compressed air could possibly spin your cooling fans at a dangerous RPM that may destroy the fan's bearings. If you insist on doing it this way, insert a straightened paper clip into the fan intake to keep it from spinning up.

- Some have also used a vacuum hose to suck debris from the heatsinks without opening the laptop. Again, the only way to get it ALL out is to open 'er up........

Dell :: E1705 To M1710 Conversion

Jan 13, 2008

I've been doing a lot of reading, and I *think* I've got a handle on the best course for converting the e1705 to the m1710, one piece at a time.

I'm hoping those whove been down this path could chime in and confirm/deny what I believe to be correct.

OK, so I've got an e1705;

2GB PC5300
3945 wireless (PCI-E)
7900 GS (single pipe)

So, I'm thinking I start by getting the m1710 motherboard.

From what I've gleaned from here, there, and everywhere, if I cut out the hole for the docking port on my e1705 base, the mobo is a direct swap-in, correct?

Everything listed above will work with the m1710 mobo, correct?

Until I get the m1710 palmrest, I can use the e1705 palmrest as is, correct?

Until I get the m1710 fans and speakers, I can use the ones from the e1705, correct?

The e1705 keyboard is a direct swap, correct?


Will the card reader in the e1705 work with the m1710 mobo?

Will the left side USB ports plug in and work with the m1710 mobo?

Required; Upgrade to the 9 cell battery and 130W brick when putting in the new m1710 board.

Dell :: M1710 Motherboard In An E1705

Jul 23, 2007

A few auctions on Ebay claim the m1710's mobo will also drop into an e1705. That would allow for up 4GB RAM, and also allow me to use the T7600G CPU. I'm sure someone else has thought of this already. Is it possilbe? I see the motherboard for around $300.

Can I buy an XPS fan assembly and put it in the E1705 to get the led's to light up in the fan's?

Dell :: How To Get RAID 0 Working In M1710 And E1705 Instructions

Jan 29, 2008

First have 2 drives of course. main drive and a Optical 2 SATA or PATA.

my howto is for a 320 and a 250 raided giving you 250/250 =465 real gb of space.

first partition the 320 drive when installing XP PRO so that you have your main partition 70gb and the rest leave for later. also just leave the other drive for later as well.

Install windows XP pro on the 70gb partition.

get your drivers etc programs etc and all other shit that you want setup.

next hack the registry to enable Dynamic Drives on XP-PRO. Funny cuz they say that you can't get dynamic drives on notebooks. not even with XP PRO.

go into :

and change the following
in the services dir there is each reg dir and the corresponding start value.
you must change the start value to whats below.

dmadmin: 3
dmboot: 4
dmio: 0
dmload: 0
dmserver: 2

after that reboot.

then go into control panel, admin tools, computer management and then disk management.

right click on the windows drive and click on convert to dynamic.

it will pop up with a list of drives you have *2 of course cuz thats all we have* so check the other drive. and convert to dynamic. just say ok to the next few things it asks you. and reboot.

after reboot go back into disk management and right click on the second partition in the windows drive and click "new volume" and choose stripped in the list for what kind of volume. click next until format and do a quick format.

bingo you just created a raid 0 drive which will not be redundant but will be UBER QUICK.

mine has a 8ms response time.

sorry for my crappy howto. but I really wanted raid in my notebook and there was no howto's so it took alot of digging.

Dell :: M1710 7900mGTX Vs M1730 8700mGT SLI

Feb 8, 2008

1. What is the general opinion of the 8700mgt SLI?

2. how does it compare to even the 7900mGTX?

3. Being that the 7900 has a 256 bit interface where the 8700 are 128, do you see that as a bottleneck in video rendering?

4. I realize that the 8800 is out, but I wont make any decisions on that even if they are glowing. I'm primarily trying to figure out if the 8700's are on par vs a single 7900gtx, what are your thoughts on this?

5. windows xp or vista ultimate? Prefer to contrast the pro's and cons, I havent used vista yet nor have we QA'ed it, we still use MCE and winxp-pro

Input is very much appreciated, thank you in advance!

Please assume that the cpu and harddrive specs are similar, both with 4gb of ram.

I am about to pull the gun on a new laptop..

I have 9300 modded with a 7800 gtx go.. but that card is showing its age already..

I am thinking about getting a m1710 w/ 7950 GTX, 2.0 Core2Duo, 200 gig 7200 HD, 2 GIG Ram for $2500 shipped..

Will I regret this since the m1730 is suppose to come out the 21st of Sept?

When the m1730 comes out.. this should push the price down a little more for the m1710 right?

i installed new drivers for my pc like i said. But for 3DMark 06 getting 4,857 is much better than the reviews which it got around 4,200 i believe.
