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.

Acer aspire 1800 running very slow. Can I improve it's performance?


FIXING A SLOW COMPUTER
A slow computer could be caused by a number of things - 1. Insufficient RAM (memory) - if your computer has less than 512Mb of RAM then increase it to at least 1Gb of RAM. 2. Registry problems - clean and repair the registry, it will contain unused registry keys. Use programs such as Registry Mechanic, Microsoft RegClean etc. 3. Uninstall/remove unused programs, this will also free up hard disk space. 4. Not enough hard disk space - swap file space may need to be increased if Windows hasn't been configured to manage it. 5. Install latest Windows updates. 6. Update virus definition files and scan computer for viruses, Trojans, malware etc. 7. Clear the Internet cache for faster browsing. 8. Hard disk maintenance is required at least once a month to keep it functioning efficiently. Run the following programs - Disk Cleanup - removes temporary files that are no longer used and to recovers hard disk space. Disk Defragmenter to make fragmented files into contiguous files and therefore the hard disk access is faster.

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.

Flashing Battery Light, Run Faster, Dell updates


You've asked a lot.
The battery light could indicate it's on its way out. What does the battery life indicate if you unplug the unit from the wall? How old is the battery that is in it now?
You can clean up your computer by using the hard drive cleanup utility in Windows, (in the system tools), and then you can check your hard drive for errors and defrag it (in the tools tab when you are viewing the properties of the hard drive.) You can run msconfig and disable startup programs you don't need.
And--for upgrades, the cheapest upgrade with the most bang for the buck is to increase your memory.
As for Dell updates, you could check their site for updates in utilities.
If all this boggles your mind, let me know and I'll lead you through the steps to do it.

The motherboard does not support SATA. If you want to use SATA, you'll have to use an adapter. Not sure if this is possible in your laptop. Also I don't think this increases performance very much.
