Dell latitude D610 vga drivers sites


Hi
All drivers for Windows XP for this laptop can be found here:
Product Support Dell US

If under the category heading you specify "video" then the list will give you 2 drivers - both in the form of executable files - which can be downloaded and installed onto the computer. One of the files is for the Intel graphics chipset, and the other for the ATI graphics chipset. You need to make sure of the chipset you have otherwise the drivers will not work properly, if at all.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya

AMD chipset driver for Win 7
AMD chipset driver for Vista
AMD chipset driver for WinXP

The chipset term used is for the motherboard chipset.
The motherboard chipset for your motherboard, is an AMD 785G - Northbridge chip, and an AMD SB710 - Southbridge chip.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_AMD_Chipsets#A-Link_Express_II

Scroll down to AMD 785G chipset in the left column.

The Northbridge chip handles the Faster capabilities of a computer.
Processor, Ram Memory, and HIGH-speed graphics.

AGP and PCI Express technology is HIGH-speed graphics.

Using a graphics card in a PCI slot is Not high-speed graphics.
Using Integrated graphics from the motherboard, is Not high-speed graphics.

The Southbridge chip handles the slower capabilities of a computer.
1) PCI bus and Integrated graphics

(Integrated Graphics is also referred to as OnBoard graphics. A term that explains better I feel.
ON the motherBOARD )

2) IDE (PATA) bus
3) SATA bus
4) USB bus
5) Ethernet
6) Audio (Sound)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

(CPU = Central Processing Unit.
Another term used is Microprocessor, or simply Processor for short.
The 'Brain' of the computer.
Does NOT mean Personal Computer )

This is why I think you need to download, AND install the proper chipset drivers. (Proper being matched to the Operating System)

When you go to download, AND install.
I would like to know the procedure you used.
(The driver file should be saved, then opened, and installed)

Post back in a Comment.

(I have had some people who downloaded, but did not install; and thought that would work)

The term Discrete Graphics is used;
Video - Graphics adapter - Discrete

Laptop manufacturers have misused this term for years, though.
Discrete graphics means there is a separate Processor used for graphics.
This means there is a separate circuit board, with a G.P.U. on it, and it doesn't use any of the System Resources.

Graphics Processing Unit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPU

To go more in depth;

For a Notebook PC the GPU can be;
1) Soldered directly to the motherboard. Uses part of the System Resources; i.e., Processor and Ram Memory.
Integrated Graphics.

2) Soldered using a small circuit board, and then the circuit board is soldered to the motherboard, with a BGA surface mount.

3) Soldered to an adapter card, and the adapter card is removable.
Plugs into an interface on the motherboard.

All of the above I'm sure you know.
My thoughts are a laptop of this era will have it's GPU, or said as graphics chipset, soldered to the motherboard via a BGA surface mount.
As stated in Number 2 above.
Would still be discrete graphics, but soldered to the motherboard.

Ball Grid Array.
To explain a BGA surface mount;

The Processor is supposed to be an Intel Pentium III 650. (Mobile),

http://gdgt.com/dell/latitude/cpx/j650/specs/

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_III_microprocessors#Mobile_processors

Scrolling down, and looking at - Mobile Pentium III 650, you can see it will be attached to the motherboard with a BGA2 socket, (BGA surface mount), or a uPGA2 socket,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Micro-PGA2 (Click to enlarge photo)

The Intel Pentium III processor has contact pins on the bottom, that mate up with matching socket holes in the uPGA2 processor socket.

With a BGA surface mount, there are no contact pins coming down from the bottom of the graphics chipset, nor socket holes in a socket on the motherboard.

In place of the contact pins are Solder Balls.
In place of the socket holes are Copper Pads.
(The copper pads are gold plated)

The graphics chipset's circuit board is set into place on the motherboard, with the Solder Balls lining up with the matching Copper Pads on the motherboard.

Heat is then applied as a specific temperature, and length of time.
This action melts the solder balls, and solders the graphics chipset to the copper pads.
(Which in turn solders the graphics chipset to the motherboard)

The two hardware components in a computer, Laptop or Desktop, that give off the most heat; is the Processor and graphics chipset.
The cooling components for laptops usually concentrate mostly on the Processor, with the graphics chipset getting the 'leftovers'.

This means the graphics chipset may go become too hot, and many times. (Turn laptop on, turn laptop off, etc)

This can lead to the solder connections made, of graphics chipset to motherboard; may partially melt, then re-solidify when the laptop is turned off.
This leads to cold solder joints, (Connections), and creates a poor contact of graphics chipset to motherboard.

Example of a BGA Rework Station in use, and more information on the BGA surface mount,

http://www.ersa.com/art-ir-pl-650-346-1472.html

Scroll down, click on the Red -
Take a few minutes to view the IR 650 demo video

The laptop will especially overheat if it is dirty inside.

{ You open the laptop to repair it, you wear an ESD wrist strap, and have it's alligator clip attached to a good ground source.
Cost averages around $3 to $6.
I clip to an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of an open, empty desktop computer case.

Or you can set a large metal serving tray (Unpainted), on the table youare working on, and clip to it. Or large metal knickknack (Unpainted }

Make sure the laptop is clean inside, then you may wish to try reflowing the graphics chipset. I prefer a BGA Rework Station, but perhaps other methods may work for you.

Most of the time the reason other methods do not work, is the heating, and cooling down processes are not correct.

The graphics chipset is not heated uniformly, and to the correct temperature.
The chipset has to be S-l-o-w-l-y cooled down, so there are no cold solder joints.

Just for information; Not advertising for this guy,

Dell l702x 17 motherboard


The chipset in reference is a graphics chipset.
Allow me to digress for a moment, and bring you up on a few basic things, so you know what we are talking about;

1) Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_Circuit

2) The chipset, or Integrated Circuit for graphics; is a graphics chipset.
Proper term is G.P.U.
Graphics Processing Unit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPU

Upon reading the article, you will learn that the GPU can be mounted directly TO the motherboard, or mounted on a separate graphics adapter card.

You are probably familiar with the last term.
It's a graphics card. Also can be stated as video card.

Doesn't quite work that way in all laptops, or can be said, all laptop manufacturers.
Best way to sell a laptop? Make it seem better than it is.
Stiff competition.
Use the fuzzy definition of Graphics Card, and make the laptop seem better than it is.

Going back to the term GPU. The graphics processing unit, is actually the little chipset in the middle. Around it is a small circuit board.
The circuit board is an interface used to connect the GPU, to the motherboard, OR graphics adapter card. -> Such as used in a desktop computer.

Laptops usually have Integrated Graphics.
Means it borrows from the System Resources. The Processor, and Ram Memory.
Yes.
This means the Processor, and Ram Memory are overloaded, when an intensive program is run. Such as an intensive game, for example.

An actual graphics card has it's own Processor. The GPU. But, it also has it's own graphics memory. Means it does not borrow from the System Resources.
Makes the laptop perform better. Also makes it sell better.
See why laptop manufacturers want to 'fudge', the graphics that is REALLY installed?

It IS a graphics card, but it is mounted to the motherboard with a BGA surface mount. This makes it TOUGH to replace, therefore tough to upgrade. Not really a graphics card IMHO.



From what I can gather looking at the specifications, for the
Dell XPS 17 Model L702x, it can come with a separate graphics card, or the GPU is mounted to the motherboard. (Integrated Graphics )

If it is mounted to the motherboard, it is Integrated Graphics.
IF so, the GPU is an Intel HD graphics. The GPU is built into the Processor itself.

If it is a separate graphics card, it is an Nvidia GeForce GT 550M,
OR, an Nvidia GeForce GT 555M. (Two options were offered)
M stands for Mobile.
It is a graphics chipset built for a Mobile computer.
Which a laptop is.
It is Mobile because you can carry it around.

According to what you have stated, from what you have been told, the motherboard needs to be replaced.

This means to me we are dealing with Integrated Graphics, whereby the GPU is soldered directly to the motherboard.
(Not a separate, thereby replaceable, graphics card)

The mounting for the GPU, or graphics chipset, is a BGA surface mount.
Ball Grid Array.

To explain the BGA surface mount;
Compare to an older Intel Pentium 4 processor, that uses a Socket 478 processor socket.
I do not know if you are familiar with this. If so disregard the following;

The processor has contact pins on the bottom. 478 of 'em.
The processor socket has matching socket holes,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_478

Now to go on;
With a BGA surface mount there are no contact pins, nor socket holes.

In place of the contact pins are Solder Balls.
In place of the socket holes are Copper Pads.
The Copper Pads are mounted directly to the motherboard, (Simple explanation), and gold plated.

The graphics chipset is set down on the motherboard, with the Solder Balls lining up on the Copper Pads.
Heat is applied at a specific temperature, and length of time.

This action melts the Solder Balls, and solders the graphics chipset TO the Copper Pads.
(Which in turn, of course, solders the graphics chipset TO the motherboard)

If the cooling system area for the graphics chipset is inadequate, the graphics chipset overheats.
Constant, repeated, overheating can cause the solder connections that were made, to partially melt.

When the laptop is turned off, the solder connections re-solidify.
This causes a Cold solder joint, or solder joints.
(The solder connection is a solder joint)

This cause a poor contact of the graphics chipset to the motherboard, and apparently what you are seeing.

I state apparently, because -> I do not have the laptop in front of me, and have not diagnosed the problem. Going by what you have stated, from what you have been told.

From the specifications I have seen so far, I see a touchscreen can be an option. Do I assume your laptop does Not have this option?
Post back in a Comment.

Now I would like to show you a BGA Rework Machine (Station), at work. Gives you more of an idea of what a chipset is, and the BGA surface mount,

http://www.ersa.com/art-ir-pl-650-346-1472.html

Scroll the page down, and click on the Red ->
Take a few minutes to view the IR 650 demo video

A 5 minute video.

This is an example of the CPU Heatsink, used to cool the Processor, and graphics chipset.
(Digressing; CPU = Central Processing Unit. Another term used is Microprocessor, or Processor for short),

http://www.parts-people.com/index.php?action=item&id=12048

Click on the image to enlarge.

You are looking at a Top view.

1) At the Top is a rectangular copper finned Heatsink.
It has thin pieces of a foam material that are black, on it.
(A type of Filter)

2) Coming away towards the right, you see two Cooling Tubes.
Slightly flattened copper tubes that are sealed on both ends, and filled with Nitrogen.

3) The first Large aluminum looking plate of metal at the Top, sits on the Processor. Two Philips head screws.
4) The rectangular shaped plate of metal at the bottom, sits on the graphics chipset.

The Fan Assembly is not shown. This is an example of it,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Genuine-NEW-Dell-XPS-L701-L701X-L702X-CPU-COOLING-FAN-DFS601305FQ0T-W3M3P-/260861096735

(Scroll down)
Left side is the Bottom, that sits on the motherboard. Right side is the Top.
The Fan sits next to the rectangular copper finned Heatsink.

Heat from the Processor, and heat from the graphics chipset, si absorbed by their respective metal plates. The heat is then absorbed by the Cooling Tubes. The Cooling Tubes transfer the heat to the finned Heatsink.

The Heatsink absorbs the heat, then radiates it away with the thin fins. Air flow from the Fan Assembly helps carry heat away from the fins of the Heatsink.

That rectangular metal plate sitting on top of the graphics chipset, is TOO small in surface area. The surface area needs to be increased.
How? Here is one tech's idea. It has been around a long time, just showing you an example. This is towards certain HP laptops.

Screen wont light up


wafy_m, the problem can be attributed to the graphics chipset, is lifting off of the motherboard.
The mounting has loosened.

This is because the cooling system for the graphics chipset, is inadequate.

Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_circuit

The graphics chipset is the GPU,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPU

The mounting of the GPU to the motherboard, is done with a BGA surface mount,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ball_grid_array

To explain a BGA surface mount, compare to an older Intel Pentium 4 processor, that uses a Socket 478 processor socket,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_478

The Processor has contact pins on the bottom. 478 of 'em.
The Socket 478 processor socket has matching socket holes.

With a BGA surface mount there are no contact pins, nor socket holes.

In place of the contact pins there are Solder Balls.
In place of the socket holes there are Copper Pads.
(Which have a gold plating on them)

The graphics chipset is set into place over the motherboard, with it's Solder Balls lining up on the motherboard's matching Copper Pads.

Heat is then applied at a specific temperature, and length of time.
The Solder Balls melt, which solders the graphics chipset to the Copper Pads.
(Which in turn solders the graphics chipset to the motherboard)

With the inadequate cooling for the graphics chipset, after time the solder connections will begin to partially melt.

This leads to a poor contact of the graphics chipset to the motherboard, and the problem you are having.

As previously stated the cooling system for the graphics chipset, is inadequate.

Cooling System:
The cooling system consists of a Cooling Tube, Heatsink, and Fan Assembly.

The Cooling Tube is a slightly flattened copper tube, filled with Nitrogen, and sealed on both ends.

Towards one end of the tube is an aluminum plate. This plate sits on top of the Processor. Has four screws through it. Removing these screws removes the cooling system assembly.

Coming up the tube a little bit, is another aluminum plate. This one is smaller, and sits on top of the graphics chipset.

Connected at the opposite end is the Heatsink.
The Heatsink is a small thin piece of metal, with Tall, Thin, fins protruding from it.

Next to the Heatsink is the Fan Assembly.
The Fan Assembly, is a Fan inside of a cage, or shroud.

Draws air up from the bottom of the laptop, and pushes it through the Heatsink's fins, and out the side of the laptop.

Heat from the graphics chipset, and the Processor, are absorbed by their metal plates.
The Cooling Tube absorbs heat from the two aluminum metal plates.

The Cooling Tube transfers the heat along up to the Heatsink.
The Heatsink absorbs the heat, then radiates it away with the Tall, Thin fins.

Airflow from the Fan Assembly, helps to carry heat away from the fins of the Heatsink.

The surface area of the metal plate on top of the graphics chipset, is too small. It is inadequate in surface area size.

The one on the Processor is barely adequate.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bnkQNmKauEc&feature=relmfu

The above is posted for reference. Pause the video at 7:43 to see the cooling system I described above.

1) Black Fan Assembly to the upper left.

2) To the immediate left side of the Fan Assembly is the Heatsink.
Black in color, slightly rounded outside edge, goes along the full length of the left side of the Fan Assembly. Hard to discern the fins.

3) The aluminum X shaped piece with 4 black screws in it, on the copper Cooling Tube, is the metal plate for the Processor.

4) Coming up the copper Cooling Tube towards the Fan Assembly, is the second aluminum metal plate. It is shaped sort of like an S, with flat ends. This plate sits on top of the graphics chipset.

Solution?
Properly remelt the solder connections of the graphics chipset, to the copper pads.
Add surface area to the Processor's metal plate, and the graphics chipset's metal plate.

PROPER method is to use a BGA Rework Machine. Performed by a shop who has one.

ANY other method may is less than. The procedure may last a week, a month, or maybe longer.

Computer dell latitude D610 built in 2006 replacing the viedo card how too's and also what can I do to mabe upgrade this veido card? and dose anything else need to be updated at the same time as the...


Sorry Jimmy, the Dell Latitude D610 Notebook PC uses Integrated Graphics.
There is no graphics card to upgrade.

Your Dell either came with a form of the Intel GMA graphics chipset , or the ATI Radeon Mobility X300 graphics chipset.

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/latd610/en/ug_en/specs.htm

Either/Or

The way Dell states it, (And also this is for a LOT of laptop manufacturers), is that you have either the option when purchasing, of having an Intel GMA chipset for graphics, or discrete graphics of the ATI Radeon Mobility X300, for graphics.

Discrete being the word that fools people. Makes them think it has a dedicated, removable graphics card, when in reality it is a graphics chipset soldered directly to the motherboard, and is not upgradeable.

Primer:
GPU
Graphics Processing Unit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPU

Essentially the 'graphics engine'.

A GPU can be installed directly on the motherboard, (Integrated Graphics), OR installed on a removable graphics adapter card. (Graphics Card is shortened for graphics adapter card)

Integrated Graphics borrows from the system resources. The Processor and Ram Memory.
This is why programs, for example games, that use a lot of graphics 'power', do not perform well on a computer with Integrated Graphics.

{Read - programs that use a lot of graphics power. Such as some of the newer games. Integrated graphics, depending on what graphics chipset it is, CAN run some games. Ones that are not very graphics intensive}

A dedicated graphics card has it's own processor, and graphics ram memory. Does not need to borrow from the system resources.

Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_circuit

The graphics chipset in your Dell Latitude, is mounted to the motherboard with a BGA surface mount.
Ball Grid Array

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ball_grid_array

To explain the BGA surface mount;
Let's use the older Intel Pentium 4 processor that uses a Socket 478 processor socket.
The bottom of the processor has contact pins. (478 of 'em)
The processor socket has matching socket holes for the contact pins. (478 of 'em)

With the BGA surface mount there are no contact pins. In place of them are Solder Balls.
There is no socket, or socket holes on the motherboard.
There are Copper Pads.

The graphics chipset is set into place with the Solder Balls lining up on the motherboard's Copper Pads.
Then heat is applied at a specified temperature, and length of time.

The solder balls melt which solders the graphics chipset to the motherboard. (To the Copper Pads)

Removal and replacement is properly performed with a BGA Rework Machine.
Costly, and not something you'll find a local shop performing.
{The machine is costly, and the operator needs to be S-K-I-L-L-E-D. Cost of having a chipset replaced is Ouch!}

There are two ways you can upgrade your graphics.

1) If you have the motherboard model with a form of Intel GMA chipset attached, you can purchase the motherboard that has the ATI Radeon Mobility X300, and install it.

2) Purchase a laptop with better graphics.
