(Resolved) Alienware GTX 780M GPU in other machines?

Q: (Resolved) Alienware GTX 780M GPU in other machines?

Ok, what im doing is upgrading my MSI GT 70 laptop GPU with a GTX 780m. I have been wanting this for awhile and I have found some in recent times with good pricing on ebay.

Now my question is because I have had trouble finding information on the subject, will a card from an Alienware work like a standard Mobile GPU? Meaning can I just stick it in any compatible MXM 3.0 Port and it will work.

For the record, I am coming off of a GTX 675m.

The problem I have heard in the past is that Alienware/Dell use custom Bios which lock down certain features. I am curious here if I buy a GTX 780m from an alienware if it will work fine in my MSI (MSI is pretty easy to do from what ive seen).

Anyone have any information towards this endeavor I would really appreciate it. I have been searching the web but I have not found much on the subject (I can find plenty about upgrading GPU's, but nothing specifically pertaining to putting Alienware/Dell GPU's in other brand machines).

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Issue was resolved, this is apparently doable since the Alienware cards are not locked according to other users.

We have 5 Win 7 machines and 3 XP machines in a domain with 4 printers. There were no issues until this past weekend when the Win 7 machines started saying a specific printer was offline while the XP machines would still print to it. The printer (HP T1100) is connected directly to the network, not shared. There have not been any changes made to the printer, server or the machines.

Any help would be appreciated.

Any opinions? They have good systems for a cheap price, but how is customer support and performance? I would be buying from Future Shop most likely btw.
 

A:E Machines

By all means, build your own computer! It will give you valuable experience and knowledge. Seriously. Even if you're buying this for another person, build it anyway. It can really be a rewarding experience.

Anyway, to the point...I imagine it's good, but not the best. E Machines has never really had a good reputation when dealing with customer service, part quality (the small things - like HSFs, cables, fans, PSUs, cases, etc.), in fact I've never heard anyone say anything good about E-Machines. But I would very much reccomend building it yourself. If I can do it, so can you.

When I built the 2nd machine in my house - I bought everything in mass from newegg - and they gave me no problems, had great prices, customer service, etc. etc. And it was very fun building the actual computer, from scratch. The great thing is that when you set up every peripheral for the first time, and set it up in it's permanent location, you press the button and everything works flawlessly. Very good feeling :grinthumb

A:RC1 on 2 Machines

Hello JAS, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Normally you could use the DVD on any machine, but would need a separate product key per machine. However, since Windows 7 is still in testing, the keys have been working on more than one machine to activate them.

This will change of course when the retail version is released though.

Hope this helps,

A:GTX 680 fit Alienware x51

The top X51 on dell.com/alienware comes with a 670, so YES appears to be the answer, although I don't know if case size changes or not from the 4 different X51 models, for 100% certainty I would call and ask them.

Only other concern is the 680 is 25 more watts then the 670, as they appear to be putting pretty weak PSU's on those systems to cut corners.

Hi everyone,
This is my first post on techspot! Ok so anyways I was looking around for a new computer and I decided to go with a really cheap alienware. Well i was looking at the cpu and I need some help. A) what amd processor is good for gaming and B) should i go dual-core? I was looking at the amd 64 4000+ for a single core and for dual I cant decide( they all look better than what i got ). I am also aware of the new AM2 coming soon, well ok i just found out today ( I'll buy a alienware when they make a compatable motherboard). What amd cpu's are gona be useing that. Oh and the fx series is just too much money. And one last thing money is a concern to me, so dont just say to go with the 4800+ . Thanks!
 

A:Cpu for new alienware

first of all Alienwares are not cheap, in fact they're quite expensive.

as far as the CPU is concerned, pretty much all AMD Athlon64's are good for gaming. obviously the higher the PR rating the better performance. just be sure to get a socket 939 platform and not a socket 754.

as far as single or dual core is concerned, applications written for single cores will run faster on a single core CPU than a dual core CPU. if you multitask then go dual core. but if you're strictly looking at game performance... then I would stay with a single core.

the video card will be the more important thing to consider when it comes to gaming. in most games the video card will have the biggest impact on performance. so if money's an issue then spend the extra on a better vid card vs. the better CPU

A:Swapping HDD with OS between machines

you should be able to swap the hard drives legally as long as you own both.

you will need to do complete installs. might even be best to do a format
before an install on both machines. windows does an examination of
both machines for hardware to detect hardware to prevent piracy.

i don't have xp and don't know all the issues but you will also probably
need to go through a
genuine-windows-contact-the-mothership-to-prevent-piracy
authorization. they may refuse to authorize it suspecting you
of windows piracy and leaving you with the
machine to stop working after 30 days.

all in all it may be easier to buy more drive space when you
need it for the home machine.

I have in my possesion an Emachines 820.

Having major issues with it. when it's plugged in and swiched on at the PSU, the CPU fan and the PSU fan spin. The power button however is dead, does not have any effect what-so-ever.

I had some mild success when i unplugged everything, (cd rom/floppy/hdd etc...) and removed the system battery. After about 15 mins, i tried to boot, got a beep and a bios. So i plugged the HDD back in, and tried to boot again. It booted, got half way through loading windows and switched off.

Has been dead ever since, can't even get a bios now.

All that happens is the CPU and PSU fans spin up, (although not at full pace) and i get an LED disco. (all 3 led's on the keyboard and the hdd led all flicker at me)

Anyone got any suggestions?

If I go to Start/Computer/Network, Ionly see my two Win 7 machines, by thier name, but do not see any XP machines ( see left side of screenshot).

If however I go to Windows Explorer, and type in the ip address of any XP machine, it pops right up, and I see that XP machine (by its ip addrress), along with the Win 7 machines by name ( see right side of screen shot).

What is going on?? Why can I see all my machines right away? I used to !

A:Can only see XP machines via IP Address

Windows 7 debuted a feature called homegroups. this could be why you don't see the machines if the windows 7 machines are not part of the same "homegroup" which xp machines can not be, they may not show under that view. To get them networked the easiest way is to share folders on the windows 7 and search from the xp machines.

remember you should still be able to type "\\computernamehere" into a explorer or run command and bring up and shares on that system. (firewalls not withstanding) Give that a try on the windows 7 machine type \\xpcomputernamehere into the run command and see if it at least gets the printers folder of the xp machine.

A:E-Machines - GHOSTERR.TXT

Ghost is erroring out and generating an error file called GhostErr.txt. If you put a blank floppy in the drive when prompted to create that file, you should be able to save it to the disk and open it to see what the problem is. The most likely cause is a corrupt ghost image file.

I have a 6 yr old Dell, works fine. Plan on buying another Dell soon, just want to upgrade. I've been told Radio Shack sells a cable whereby both machines will work together as one more or less. If so, I have lots of questions....
Do I need special programs?
I use dialup, will either machine be available to pick up mail or go on the web, naturally one at a time. Does my server allow this type of operation or will they balk?
Do both PC's need to be powered up or is this "cable " just a pass thru.
Is operation of both or either PC done from either operator position.
Whats this cable called?
 

A:Joining two machines

IF both machines are equipped with a Network Adapter, then a cross-over Cat 5 or Cat 6 cable is required.

That would allow you to set them up in a peer to peer network, also it would allow one (the Host) to be able to access the internet and the second PC to use that connection, but both PC's have to be on.

Without knowing if both PC's have a network adapter (ethernet port) it's not possible to say if this will work for you. Ethernet cards (to add-in) are cheap for normal desktop PC's

Each PC operates independently, but the "network" created by such a cable allows you to access the data on one PC from the other. Essentially that is the limit of the cross functionality obtained by connecting them. (I have 4 networked here, sharing printers, broadband and files)

All this depends on the version of Windows on each PC as to how easy or hard it is to set up.

I can connect to the readynas through it's IP address in a browser no problem, I have full internet and networking between it and the first 64 bit machine.

No homegroup is set up on either seven machine. The network is set to Home. Drivers are installed for the ethernet properly, latest drivers.

I looked through settings and everything seems to be gravy. What am I missing. Nothing changed between the two installs except 18 hours of time. =/

Hi all,
I have used ghost before to image XP PCs over the network, but have yet to try either win7 or an OEM OS (xp was an enterprise license). My Qs:
Is it legit to ghost OEM PCs? I have 60+ new PCs, with OEM win7. I was thinking that I could take one PC, set it up the software etc then push the image. I would then change the license key to the one on the box. Is this correct?
If all the systems are the same, do I need to sysprep?
I have heard horror stories of syspreping win7 - if I need to do a sysprep, does anyone have a good guide?
Any help/advice greatly appreciated,
Rob

A:Ghosting OEM Machines - possible?

This seems to work well: SysPrep to move HD to another computer

Imaging or cloning directlyl would need to be to the exact hardware since Win7 cannot be counted on to start on new hardware without SysPrepping or utilizing a feature like Acronis Universal Restore or a Paragon Adaptive Restore CD.

Sorry Brink but it looked so easy and I am now stuck for an answer.

One word: HomeGroup.

If all of the machines are Windows 7, HomeGroup it up. It's MUCH easier, IMO.

If you have public sharing turned on but are being asked for a password, it is because machine A is trying to access B yet B has an account with the same name as A so B says that A should supply the password for the account on B, regardless.

Someone finally did a through test of the dreaded Bestec powersupply

http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story&reid=154


Note to owners of E-machines with the Bestec Powersupply: Replace it ASAP Lack of overvoltage protection on the 5VSB rail will lead to a fried motherboard if one of the capacitors on that rail fails. (And with the cheap caps in this unit failure is rather likely)
 

A:Anyone with an E-Machines might want to read this

We we not agree with this analysis. We, too, have had a team of independent experts analyse the eMachines Bestec Power supply.
First, the same Bestec power supplies work fine in the low end Gateway, Dell, HP, Compaq, and several Tiger computers without the high failures.
The problem with the eMachines units is the motherboards, which were designed by Intel and others, but then manufacturered in Korea under license to Tri-Gem. These motherboards are missing key components in the plastics of the board, and the circuitry... which allows them to shrink and curl. During the shrinkage and curling, the electrical circults are pulled and twisted by the force of the board curling or shrinking... creating short circuits that destroy the Bestec and other brands of power supplies that eMachines used from 2002 to 2007...
We have 700 eMachines computers stored in a barn awaiting action... because eMachines knew they were bad.
The thing eMachine owners need to know is that in excess of 60 percent of eMachines Desktops built and sold during that time have failed with no apologies nor compensation from eMachines
The problem is moot now, as eMachines, once owned by Gateway, and before that, by Tri-Gem, is now owned (as I understand the transaction) by another Korean company of famous name and note.

Computer Setup

1 Desktop Clone - XP Pro SP2

1 Portable - Vista Ultimate

1 Netgear Router

Currently the two machines listed above can see each other, have internet and share files.

I just received a new computer from Work with XP2 and has policies that limit what I can do. When I log into this machine it requires user name/password/domain name connected or not connected a network.

At home I can connect with this machine to my network for internet- wired or wireless after adding WEP key.

What I am looking to do is Remote into my computer upstairs so I dont leave any footprints on the new portable. With the other portable this is possible. (Desktop is upstairs and I stay downstairs most often.

I can not get this new computer to see my other computer. This is where im stuck.

Any thoughts??

If they are both accessing the internet through the same router failure to ping is almost definitely a firewall issue. You didn't mention ping, but I assume that's what you meant by "see."

I've got a workgroup of 3 XP machines: A, B and C.

A and B can see each other, but C can not see them.

However, connectivity on all machines is fine, and A and B can access the shares of C, but C can not access the shares of A or B; A and B can access each other.

There are no firewalls in-between the computers for testing purposes, and the issue is the same regardless of ports used on the switch.

A and B can browse the workgroup as expected, but C produces a timeout of:
"The list of servers for this workgroup is not currently available".

Help!?

Just ordered two new machines for the home network. Primary web browsing, a few light games and some home businesss software (Word, Excel etc.) Got a "deal" on 1.4 Ghz P4s with 30 G HD, CD ROM and NIC for $200 but no software . . . ie No OS. I do this for fun and am knowlegable enough to be really dangerous at it. I have XP on the laptop now but have been encouraged to go LINUX as "the way of the future" on the new machines. I don't know anything about LINUX and really don't want to have to learn unless it is in fact going to replace XP in a short time. Opinions?

Thanks for your input.

Hello
I work part time at an elementary school and they have Pentium 2 machines with 32 MB memory.
One of our biggest problems is machines being really slow.
My basic diagnostic goes like this
1)Delete tmp, bak, and chk files
2)remove temporary internet files and history
3)Run scandisk and defrag(if necessary)
4)Have the teachers remove the unecessary Desktop shrtcuts and items in the systray, because they lengthen the startup

Is there any other way to increase performance???

Thanks

my sister in law(store manager) works for that major retailer(w-mart) and i talked extensively her with over the lastest in discount retail computers.

for the past 6 months,they have been selling $500 emachines and they have received over 25 similar complaints on the installed modems(they returned thier computers). the customers were being "bumped offline",etc from thier dialup isp.

the isps(different companies)were reporting the same conclusion,the modems installed in the machine was"old,outdated,etc.,the problem".

one customer just installed another modem and has been having no problems since. the reasoning,to spend an additional $30 for a modem to the $500 computer was still a good deal.

so be informed of these emachines and i guess,generally $500 computers. although $500 hp computers have been making customers happy.

Not familiar with that machine but many have the "recovery" placed in a small partition on the machine. Some of these also offer the option to reformat and return the machine to "just as you bought it" status or to reformat and install only the operating system.

Did you disable system restore on each of the xp's before you cleaned them logged in as the admin?

Here's how to check:
Start/run type in "services.msc" and change "Startup type" from automatic to disabled. Run the tool.

If still no success, try running the fix tool in safe on a single xp, THEN enable system restore, and see if that pc can hit the Internet.

Tell me the server's been patched....

I have a machine named \\FI-MOVIE running Win7 Ultimate.
We also have 12 other Win7 machines in our network.
10 of the machines get the login screen when they access \\FI-MOVIE - all works fine there

But... 2 of the machines get this error screen... (see attached image)
The 2 machines doesn't even get a login screen, they only get the error screen.
How do we fix that?

The \\FI-MOVIE computer can access both of the trouble machines without problems
 

A:\\name is not accessible - but only from certain machines?!?

Ok we just fixed one of the computers by going to:
Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network and Sharing Center\Advanced sharing settings
and changing Public Folder Sharing to ON - that brought up the login screen on that computer.

The last computer already have the setting to ON - and the last computer have been able to access \\FI-MOVIE for a long time until one day the user (aka me) could not remember the \\FI-MOVIE password and made 10 wrong attempts (or so) which resulted in the attached error screen. I wonder if \\FI-MOVIE have locked out that user?? Could that be it? And where do I check for that?

I just got a Dell pc with windows 8. I already have a network (wired and wireless) with 3 xp machines and 2 printers & internet connection. I have connected the Win 8 pc to the network wirelessly and it browses the internet fine through the network router. I also managed to get it to print on the network printer. Therefore the connections are working. However one of the xp machines has most of the files we use on a shared drive. I want to be able to access these files on the Win 8 pc but I cant see any of the xp machines. The drive is shared as all 3 xp machines can access them.
Any ideas?

A:Win 8 pc cant see xp machines on network

MS "This problem occurs if the Link-Layer Topology Discovery (LLTD) Responder component is not installed on the Windows XP-based computer.

Network Map in Windows Vista & later makes network diagrams of the connections between network devices that can be used to troubleshoot connectivity problems. Network Map uses a discovery protocol called Link-Layer Topology Discovery (LLTD) that queries other devices on the network to determine how the network is organized.

Windows Vista & later includes the software components that implement the LLTD protocol. For other devices on the network to be displayed on the map, they must enable a discovery protocol that can respond to the mapping requests from the Windows Vista & later-based computer."

For the XP Machines:

Also Make sure windows 8 network & sharing is showing your network as a "Home" Or "work" network so it trusts the local zone

Is the 2gb of ram memory really the max? It can't go beyond that?

Hello,
Sorry for the complicated mess I put below but ..

Got a strange network setup, I currently have 3 laptops running Windows XP Pro. I have it set up so that everyone has their own username and password and once they have logged in they are presented with the same Documents ,Pictures ,Music and so on by changing the file locations to my NAS.

( Each person has their own user on the NAS to only be able to access their own documents and the public section).

Now what I am wanting to do is make it so each person regardless of the machine they are on , Has the same wallpaper.

EG: User 1 is on laptop 2 and sets a wallpaper. User 1 now can log in to Laptop 1/3 and have the same wallpaper as it is saved to the NAS.

Can this be done? I would think it wouldn't be to hard to be able to do.
