Question about Dell Studio 1737 Laptop

1 Answer

I have changed motherboards, they are the same, but the new one has an ATI Video chip M826G. Do I have to have a new BIOS version to run this new one?

I have installed it and a few minutes into the boot up it shuts down. At first I thought it was the heatsink and the thermal paste problem. But I reinstalled the old motherboard and it worked fine. Any suggestions?

The BIOS would support the new chip as it comes with the motherboard.
Check the connections for a problem.

Can you run two monitors on Asus P5GC?

The Settings for 2 monitors on a graphics card are not in the BIOS, The settings you need are in the display card settings, (If the card is ATI based you need to look in "Catalyst".) The relevant settings are in there. You need to find the setup program for your card.

Does anyone know if the Sparkle FX 5200 256MB DDR AGP is 1.5V? I can't boot up windows xp after installing this card. Changed the chipset from PCI to AGP... also performed a bios/cmos clear. any hints...

Hi, I have the fx5200 pci version in my computer, I went from an ati agp card to it.

All I had to do was go into bios, and go to the video settings and set it on autodetect then the motherboard autodetects the video card, configures the memory for it, as well as the irq and dma.

I then hit escape and selected save and exit.
When it reboot, it detected my new card with no problem, set it up into the bios, and allowed the system to boot up.

Now, after you get it booted up, you'll still need to install the driver pack from nvidia. You will be looking for firmware version 175.19
You may have to click on a link on nvidia's website to get to discontinued models. Download it, run it, and then reboot
Then your video card should work at all the settings available.
You will also need to install the driver for your monitor.

My Latitude 510, Turn it on,won't stay on

Chances are your nVidia card is now defective due to a known issue with certain Dell models. The GPU has a clocking issue, and melts down due to heat. New BIOS version have been released to combat this, but no real fix except to replace motherboard. See Even if out of Warranty, contact Dell Support, as they have been known to repair these issues by replacing the motherboards with ATI Video Card models.

3 monitors on dell vostro 200

Go to your bios and check if your bios allow that. Usually if you connect a card on the motherboard slot automatically the on board card becomes unavailable.
If your bios doesn't allow to make changes you can add another pci video card or connect some vga split signal to get the image on 3, 4, or more monitors with a single device.

Flashed the BIOs to Version 2.02 now it only powers on

Yes could be the problem. Flashing bios is always!! a risky business. Best you can do is check all the connections, ie reseat all cards and memory. If that doesn't work looks like new motherboard time unless you can get a new CMOS chip to fit the board.
