Dell :: I Can't Buy M1710 Parts From SPARE PARTS W/o An M1710 SVC TAG #

Feb 21, 2008

I was going to be assembling an m1710 this weekend....

I called Dell Spare Parts a few days ago, and placed an order for the following;

HG345 Refurb bottom plastics, m1710
FF084 Refurb palmrest assy, m1710
J8841 Refurb speakers, LED, m1710
CF426 Refurb hinge cover, m1710

I've been watching the order on Dell's site all week, as it was scheduled to ship (on or before today) (2/21/08), and I opted for Next Day shipping.

When I placed the order, the woman I spoke with asked for my Service Tag number. I, um... don't HAVE one... I didn't say this, I simply said I don't have that information at the moment. She asked how I got the part numbers, and I told her from their own Spare Parts page.

Well....the order got cancelled today. Saw it online while at work, just before I left for the day. Another order number with the identical items was created, with a scheduled ship date of 3/3/08. WHAT?

The woman just called....she states they cannot process my order without a service tag number. YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!

I told her I don't have a tag number....she asked if I was building one. "Yes." To which I hear...

"Oh....well, I don't think our supplier will allow that without a service tag number, because we reserve those parts for people who bought m1710's."

I said "That's amazing...because I know a number of people who have done the same thing I'm trying to do, and had no problems getting these parts."

"Well, that's because they have m1710's"

*mad enought to scream at this point* "Um, no...where do you think I got the idea from?? I'm certainly not the first person to have this idea."

how I can get them to sell me some refurbished plastics? What's the secret password?

Dell :: New To XPS M1710

Nov 28, 2007

I just acquired my 1st XPS notebook this week (bought it used) and so far, I'm loving it. Not a huge fan of Dell desktops but I must admit, they have done something amazing with their XPS/gaming systems. And their warranty services aren't too shabby.

My current system is as follows:
Intel C2D T7200 @ 2.0GHz 4MB L2/667MHz
Go 7900GS
200GB 7200RPM HDD
Gigabyte wireless adapter (not sure which model but it supports 108Mbps)

Got it for a good price so I wanted to know the following...

Is it worth it for me to upgrade the CPU to possibly the T7600/T7600G? Is it worth it for me to upgrade the GPU to the Go 7950GTX?

I was looking into OC-ing my CPU and GPU but I haven't found any information on OC-ing the CPU. As for the GPU, the sticky here seems to be pretty easy to follow. I will try that tonight and see what I can push out of my system. I've never been huge into the OC-ing scene

Dell :: Fix Mt GC On My M1710 ?

Mar 22, 2010

I rebooted and noticed that there are now loads of lines all over my screen and when it loads to the next screen I see some green boxes.

I have let my Laptop cool down for 24 hours and its still doing it. I emailed a guy online who said he can fix for 100 so I am guessing he will fix the actual GC rather than replace.?

Dell :: 4gb Ram For M1710

Oct 24, 2007

some ram to get for my M1710 or M9750 to move up to 4 gigs. I'm thinking of getting Geil, but reading the reviews I'm thinking otherwise.


i understand on XP I'll only get 3.25 but I figuire I'll just buy the bundle and max out rather then trying to find and buy another 2 gig stick a year from now.

Dell :: GPU Drivers For My XPS M1710?

Mar 25, 2009

I'm using the 175.32 drivers for the 7900GTX on my Dell XPS M1710, but was told by a friend that there are better ones out there. On the nvidia website it only gives me Quadra NVS drivers, which I'm told would give worse performance than my current drivers. I use my laptop for gaming, not rendering.
Any other driver suggestions?

Dell :: 7950GTX / M1710

Aug 29, 2007

I'm trying to figure out what is going on with my 7950GTX. Any drivers I use in XP have problems. ALL the drivers I have used (93.77, 94.22, 158.18, 158.45, 163.44) have had my LCD go to Black then come back to the normal image, almost as if the LCD lost power and was turned back on.

However, When I put Vista on to see if that would fix the problem, I was plagued with nvlddmkm.sys has stopped responding and has recovered errors, with the same LCD problem as in XP.

Also, while I'm in XP, I MUST disable NvMcTray form starting up or I will blue screen after I login and see the nVidia icon in my system tray.

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 :: Cooling Pad- M1710

Jul 7, 2007

I want to buy a cooling pad for an XPS M1710 I just ordered but need some advice first. Some cooling pads out there blow air up to the bottom of the laptop, and others draw air from the bottom of the laptop and exhaust the hot air to the back or sides. Can somebody tell me whether the bottom of the M1710 draws cool air in, or blows hot air out? If the M1710 draws air in, then I will get a cooling pad that blows cool air to the bottom. If the bottom of the M1710 blows out hot air, then I will get a cooling pad that draws the hot air out

Dell :: XPS M1710 Graphics

Mar 27, 2009

I know that there are lots threads about various GPU related problems, but somehow I didn't find any information which i would be very interested in. So:

PROBLEM #1: I have dell m1710 (GPU: GeForce Go 7950 GTX; the last time i've cleansed dust lats time about four months ago) for 18 months. Its waranty is expired.

Some time ago, while playing a game which does not require lots of graphics power, the screen covered with color lines and squares (screenshots included). As I closed the program and looked at GPU temperature it was around 66. I've restarted my laptop and at first it didn't boot at all and all startup information and BIOS looked like written in some kind of hieroglyphs.

Now my laptop only boots on safe mode or normal mode but only if resolution is no more than 1280x800. But i think it won't last long until it won't work at all .....

Dell :: XPS M1710 Won't Load

Nov 11, 2009

I have an m1710 laptop. A few days ago when I wanted power it up it would start loading, but nothing would show on the monitor and the LED indicators near the media button would light up.

The first one from the left would stay on and next two would flash together while the last two are off. I tried hoilding down FN key when loading so I can load dell diagnostics but it won't do that. Tried to hookup an external monitor but that didn't help.

Tried powering up with the d key pressed in to run a graphics check but didn't work. Since the comnputer is no longer under waranty I took it apart and took out the Nvidia card and cleared the dust around it.

Right after that the computer loaded fine but today it got stuch while in windows and when I tried loading it I got the same err msgs with the LED indicators. I talked with Dell locally and they told me it's 99% the Nvidia card

Dell :: M1710 Gpu Troubles...

Jan 17, 2010

Now it could just be dust, but seeing as that I cleaned it all out about 4 months ago, it's possible it's not all that.

Thing is, I AS5ed it about a yearish ago, and it ran GREAT!! now it seems like the fan doesn't blow as hard on full, and I'm unfortunately out of warranty, and unsure about buying a new warranty from dell.

I don't know wether or not I need to redo the AS5 job, my main questions are...
there a gap sufficient enough on the 7950 go gtx dual heatpipe heatsink design that the gpu isn't quite mating right with the copper?

If my fan is going on me, is there away to put a more powerful fan in? or will only a dell fan be recognized?

Has anyone else had this problem of temperatures increasing over time other than having dustbunnies? aka has anyone had to redo their as5 and it becoming magically better .....

Dell :: M1710 Upgrade

Jul 15, 2007

So I started off with MaxRule's M1710 a few months back maybe a year now this September. (My Second M1710) Originally it was pretty basic with a 7900 GTX, 2ghz processor, and 2 gb of ram.

I think I'm truely addicted with just upgrading laptops piece by piece, I mean my 9300 I sold a while back went from a poor x300 to a7800 GTX, and I maxed out everything on it eventually.

Now I've currently moved this M1710 to a 7950 gtx, and a Blue Ray Drive come this Weds, and I'm wondering what I should do next. Should I go ahead and pick up a Core 2 Processor or get 4gb of ram for this thing? Orginally I just wanted to be able to watch movies, and didn't even realize it was blu ray burner as well.

And when I put in this Blue Ray Drive, will it be easy? Does it work with XP and Vista? I've heard it doesn't work with Vista. SHould I just get the Blu Ray Drivers from Dell's Website?

Dell :: M1710 And Heat

Apr 13, 2009

ive had the 1710 for two years,- but the heat issues are getting annoying.

right now with fangui just browsing

cpu load 10%
cpu temp 6969 C
GPU 70 C
fans rpm 4470

Have been using compressed air, cleaning the vents etc.

ive read about opening it up, but im guessing that voids the warranty. Have 2 year onsite left.

Did open a netbook to lube the fan, but im guessing its more difficult on the 1710. Also a problem if i get stuck at one point when putting it together.
