If you have installed Windows XP, you'll find the NVidia portion of the switchable video configuration will no longer function (It is only supported in Vista and Windows7)
If you install the Notebook system software, Chipset then the Intel Video driver you should have normal Intel Video functions.
If not running XP, post your OS and any software changes you have made to the system

Dell Vostro 3300 lagging with Intel HD Video card


Turn off built in video and add a better card. See the minimum graphics specs for software. The video memory is shared on those Intel cards. Meaning that 4GB RAM is not totally available. The OS is going to use 1-1.5gb for running the system, then 256 (.25 gb) for the video. Means that a max of 1.75gb is available to run the game. You should have at least 8gb min. in a modern system. Especially if Win7 to Win10.

BTW: 4gb is good for surfing, or writing documents, but when you get into gaming ware - the pc spends most of its time using the swap file, (source of lag, since HD is 1000x slower than ram). So it stops the game to write, stops the game to read back aka LAG.

I have dell vostro 3300,the main problem is 30minutes running after it is automatic close and next power button push then power ok but not screen displayes and 2 minutes later power also off please so


I'll suspect this is happening because of CPU heating. You can use software like this one: http://www.techpowerup.com/realtemp/ to check the temperatures.

I have a Dell Vostro 3300. It has a sim card slot under its battery. I couldn't get it working. Which software should I use to configure it? I couldn't succeed with Dell Mobile Broadband Manager...


Are you sure you have a wireless broadband mini card installed? This sits under they keyboard. I suspect you have not. The Dell site describes how to take off your keyboard (very easy - stick a thin screwdriver down behind the F12 key and gently lever upwards)
For better description, look up repair manual on the Dell site for the 3300.
If you DO have a mini card installed, perhaps it is not enabled in your BIOS?. On startup press F12 and navigate from there.

Fuzzy screen


There are a few things to consider, and your input has validated this...

If you see this on the laptop and an external monitor, it's not your display screen on the laptop. It sounds like your graphics card.

If your system seems to work for a few minutes, but then fails after a while, it sounds like you might have a heat issue where either the cpu or the video card isn't able to disburse heat well enough, so it corrupts your system, regardless of how you're viewing it.

See if you can use a nozzle attachment from your Vac and **** out the crud, get a can of compressed air and see if you can blow out the vents around the fan and laptop, and then try the Vac again.

I've seen laptops from owners that have "cake" in their vents.

Lastly, consider updating your bios. Go to Dell and put in your service tag and get the updated bios for your machine. Sometimes follow-up versions of bios releases have enhancements to laptop cooling. Dell is notorious for coming out with cooling fixes AFTER the product is released.

My vostro 200 on call of duty 4 runs slow !! I


try lowering the screen resolution in the game settings also ste the grphics quality to low then see if the game is running fast if it runs fine then increase the graphics options one by one like resolution , bilinear or anisotropic filtering , antialiasing etc
and i would also like to tell you one thing that if the graphics card was inbuilt in your laptop then don't expect it to play heavy games like this you will have to install a separate graphics card to play good quality games

Update Dell Vostro 1000 BIOS now wont turn on, nothing on display


You may be in for some trouble, a failed bios update isn't always an easy fix. if you can find the cmos battery try to remove that for a few seconds. you will also need a disk version of the bios, download that from dell on another computer and copy it to floppy or cd and see if you can boot to that and reinstall the bios.

when you press the power button what happens, does it light up and run the fan? Nothing appears on the screen?
