Question about Dell Inspiron XPS M1710 Notebook

1 Answer

Me again with the dell 1330

So I did remove it and it dang sure made it faster. Is there anyhting else I can do to increase the performance?

Maybe run a external graphics card. Is there such thing as pluggin in some bad asss card and having it bypass the intergrated that shares memory, so then your not sharing? If so wuld it help?

Doesnt look like I can expand the memory from 4 to 6 gigs, the toshiba and HP you can but 4 gig is a lot I think.

Anyway, I rated you tops on that cause it was well worth it, justwish I had gone on m initail instinct, woulda saved 120 bucks :-)

Yeah, I figured this would help ya. There's no way around the internal card, but keep in mind that the 256 is up to 256, it only uses what it needs up to 256, and really shouldn't ever get to the 256 level, unless you're gaming with some extreme graphics and hooked to multiple monitors. You're topped out at 4g, but 4g is huge and again, you'll never use it all unless your gaming with it, and it doesn't sound like you're gaming with it. An example of a serious gamer is one of my customers that my partner and I set up a system that consists of 1 Alienware gaming tower as a server, with a 1 terabyte hard drive with 8g ram, 1 Alienware gaming laptop, with 2 300g hard drives and 6g ram, and 2 Dell XPS laptops, both with 250g hard drives and 4g ram. All connected to 5, 24 inch flat panel monitors and surround sound for the full panoramic experience. This is gaming at the extreme. Me personally, I'm content with solitaire. Glad you're happy with the performance, sorry you wasted the $120, sell it on Ebay, somebody will buy it, and if you need anything else feel free to ask.

Increase internet speed

To increase internet speed
* Check to see if faster internet connections are in your area:
Fiber optic and cable internet tend to be faster than DSL and dial-Up.
*Do some basic maintenance on your PC:
a scan disk, a virus scan, a malware scan, and clear your recycle bin.Delete old files and temporary files.
* Reset Your Modem
Sometimes switching OFF and ON your modem helps you to speed the internet.
* Optimize your cache or temporary Internet files.
These files improve your Internet connection performance by not downloading the same file over and over.

After you have tried some of this,try your connection again using and see if it's running any faster. If you are not satisfied Call your Internet service provider (ISP) and check whether upgradation of your plan is necessary.

Can it be up graded the Hitachi Vision Desk?

From the info I have read on your computer I would say that you have done well to get this far on a Pentium PII running @ 333Mhz. Maybe it is time to come into the 21st century. Most graphics cards available today have more computing power than that in your computer.

My laptop is hanging and slow when it comes to use the internet.should i reformat it?

before reformatting, follow these
Clean Windows Registry: The registry of the Windows contains immense information. It shall be cleaned all the time and it is the most effective way to boost computer speed in an easy way.
Defragment your PC to increase computer speed: Press Start button > then Programs > Click Accessories > Press System Tools > And Disk Defragmenter.
This feature will take some time but it will compact large data into smaller pieces creating a lot of free space for the computer to run faster. You can delete unnecessary files from your computer prior to performing disk defragmentation.
Add more RAM to Speed up your computer: If you are running a lot of programs and the capacity of your RAM is short. This will surely help you to make computer run faster with Windows 7 or Vista in seconds. Fortunately it does not take much time. Make it sure that you place it the right way.
Clear Cache, history and temporary internet files: Another way which I assume is a 'best way to speed up my computer' is to clear the cache, history and temporary internet files. Removing junk files frees up a lot of space required to make computers run faster.
Turn off unnecessary programs from start up: A lot of computer users complain that their Windows 7 or Vista does not boot faster. I would recommend to such people to have a shorter start up items list.
Have low intensity graphics If you are not an ardent gaming user then you can afford to run computer faster with low intensity graphics.
Uninstall unused software and programs: It is very common that people install a number of computer programs and then stop using them. These unused programs shall be removed to increase the computer speed.
The above guidelines were really helpful to speed up my computer. These are safe and do impact computer performance in a positive way.
Frustrated of the dead slow speed of your computer? Do you wish to speed up computer in seconds? Please remember to clean Windows registry with Intel Software Partner, RegInOut BY. After this scan you will feel how much faster is your computer running.
