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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:Dell Precision M6800 with AMD Firepro M6100 graphics issues

I have a couple basic suggestions, first try testing with just the LCD, reboot several times and make sure that there aren't any problems with no external displays attached.
I also suggest making sure that when testing make sure that the AC adapter is connected to the notebook.  I suggest also selecting the high performance power plan in Windows as well.
If you boot without the display port display connected are they any problems, once booted to Windows are you able to connect the display port connection without any issues?
Also check the BIOS settings under video, there is a checkbox for Enable dock DP port 1 for Post, by default it is unchecked, check it and see if it helps.

A:Precision m6600, AMD ATI FirePro M6100 FireGL graphics card installation, thermal pads and thermal paste

Hi there... I know the post is old but would like to share my experience on the topic. I have the M6600 with 2820QM processor and AMD M6100. When adding thermal pads over the GPU there is a potential for the GPU card to bend so I did not risk it - I simply added thermal paste. The GPU sits perfectly flush on the heatsink body, the supporting hardware modules around the card also sits flush on the segments within heatsink body. My unit is happy at 47 celsius when idling, and will not go over 85 celsius when pushed to the limit. I suggest that you keep it simple and and just strip the pads out.

A:Random BSOD atikmdag on Dell M6600 - ATI Firepro M6100 GPU

By disabling the pagefile, you have prevented the required BSOD .dmp files being written to the disk.

Do the following:

1. Configure Windows to create minidumps:
Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD

2. Set the paging file on C: to be the same size as the physically installed RAM:
Virtual Memory Paging File - Change

3. Set the Windows Error Reporting service to MANUAL:
Services - Start or Disable

Now Run Driver Verifier as follows:

Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Driver Verifier will cause your computer to run very sluggishly - this is normal. What it is trying to do is force your system to BSOD and isolate the offending driver/s. When it does, reboot, disable driver verifier, reboot as normal and upload the new dmp file/s here.

I recommend creating a system restore point before turning on driver verifier:
System Restore Point - Create

If your system fails to boot to desktop once driver verifier is enabled, turn it off by booting into Safe Mode:
Safe Mode

Contacted Dell about purchasing a WWAN card for Verizon for my Precision M6800.  They told me to buy the 5802 LTE/4G Mobile Broadband Mini-Card.  After purchasing / installing the card, I can't find any drivers for it that will install on the Precision M6800.  Every installation comes up with notification "This is not a DELL system".  After 2 hours on support with them, was informed that the 5802 is not compatible, and that I would need the 5808 instead.  Except the 5808 is a different physical size / shape and will not fit into the Precision M6800. 
So, has anybody been able to get a Mobile Broadband card to work on a Precision M6800?  If so, what did you use and how did you do it?

A:Will Adobe Premiere 5.1 work with Dell Precision 380 Workstation?

No problem whatsoever---you wont need raid for editing DV--its really not necessary. Yes your ethernet controler is for your network connections and thus it will be used for the Internet. All routers will run XP and 98. Forget about the integrated audio for any serious audio editing (the forgotten element of video editing) Also, make sure you dont use the sound blaster for you firewire connection----lots of reported problems. Go with a seperate firewire card with a TI chipset.

Last but not least, Premiere 5.1 is not a very stable program----they didn't get it right until version 6.0 so if possible, UPGRADE.

Good Afternoon, I have an enterprise enviroment that is having multiple issues with BSOD on M6800. Thing is, it is not every M6800 just a small number. We can find no rhyme or reason. We have updated drivers, bios, changed system boards, docks yet they all BSOD. Any help would be appreciated.

I was wondering what the chances are of getting AMD Firepro m6100 support added to the M6700 BIOS?
m6100 support was add to the M6600's bios some time ago.  I'm not sure if it's the same m6100 card though. 
If anyone else would like to see the M6700 support m6100 cards maybe we could find a way to request that Dell make this happen..

A:AMD FIrepro m6100 in M6700 support

Dell is an official large company. I was familiar with HP products 6 years ago. Now I'm a Dell products user. I have dell precision m6700 with Quadro K3000m, I want to upgrade the machine with FirePro m6100. Make sure, dell made BIOS A15 for m6600 to support m6100 graphic card. It would be great if Dell made new BIOS for m6700 to support m6100 graphic card.
I specially request to Dell Company to make new BIOS of m6700.

Hi Guys,
I needed some help with my Dell TouchPad, after some sort of drivers upgrade, I'm not able to use laptop touchpad.
Everytime when I boots up my laptop, I get this error ALPS_setmousemonitor error
Tried uninstalling and reinstalling drivers and nothing worked.
Under the device manager, the Windows 10 OS doesn't seem to detect the drivers well and always detect HID compliant mouse which is not the correct mouse driver.
Need help. This problem had been there for weeks and tried resolving myself but none work.

I just got this computer used and it has pretty much nothing on it since its a fresh install/wipe. I get a hiss noise from my headphones when any sort of audio is played. If the sound is done after 1-2 mins it stops hissing. I have the most recent Realtek drivers. I have Dell Audio program built in. It does it with no enhancements on. Its not a power issue, hard drive issue since I have a ssd or fans noise. My OS is Windows 10 64 bit. Any help would be appreciated.

A:Precision M6800 Video Driver Upgrade Inquiry


Since the Dell provided drivers were not working, I've gone to and and have downloaded both of their drivers for the Intel HD 4600 and the AMD FirePro M6100. I've made sure all video adapters were uninstalled and their drivers deleted, with the exception for the GDIHOOKS which I wasn't sure about.

After a clean reboot, I started installing the Intel provided drivers, no complaints from the driver installation wizard and it installed without error. Rebooted after installing. The display changed it resolution to something more preferable and it seems to have worked fine. Continued on...

Started the AMD FirePro website drivers. They also didn't complain about being installed, etc. Installation took longer as expected as this was a larger package. It installed without issue. Rebooted. No other errors and everything looks good.

As a test, I checked my power saving settings. Maximum Power savings on everything Battery related. Maximum Performance on everything Plugged In related. Now, as opposed to before, when running on battery, I get over ~8-9 hours of battery life. Before when unplugged with the same power settings I was only getting about 2+ hours. Plugged the AC adapter back in and launched Portal 2 with all of its settings to the max with a resolution of 1600x900. Works great. No lagging, graphics is awesome, works well.

So, as it seems the provided drivers either have issues with this model and OS (Precision M6800 Mobile Workstation with Windows 7 Profession 64bit), or they are not working correctly.

For anyone else who is curious, here are the links to the drivers I've used:

Win-8 must be installed after XP, Vista or Win-7 if you also want those on your machine. I suggest installing each to their own partition.

A:Experience Installing Windows 10 on M6600 Precision Mobile Workstation

Day two, things going smoothly with Win 10 on the M6600. 
Got around the lack of an HP Printer Driver by using Google Cloud Print, which let's me install a Google driver in Windows 10 and then print to the cloud, and from there, it communicates via internet to my HP Printer which on my local wireless network, using HP's EPrint which is compatible with Google Cloud Print. (Had to turn on Web Services on the printer and register the printer with HP Eprint.)
My nVidia driver for graphics was installed by Win 10 automatically, but that did not install the nVidia app in control panel, so I downloaded a Windows 10 version of my nVidia driver for my Quadro 3000M display adapter, and that installed fine and is working as expected. Now I have the nVidia program to tweak adjustments.

Hi every one,I own a dell precision 490, recently I upgraded it with a MSI rx480 8GB gaming X video card for GPU HEVC encoding.After installing the drivers, ERROR CODE 43 appears in the device manager. After some emails, google and phone calls. Most likey is the BIOS (A08) didn't recognize the new generation video cards (mid 2016).Can we request Dell to make a BIOS update?Do somebody share this problem and is there a work around?

Does anyone know an adapter with two display ports that fits into this Dell Precision T7610 CTO Base, that also have a very good quality?

A:Dell Precision T7610 CTO Base (Tower Workstation)

Here is the spec for the T7610 from the Dell manual, it doesn't relate to the "CTO Base".
Discrete (PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16)

up to 4 full-height, full length (maximum of 600 W)

This suggests you can use many different video cards. . You say "display ports". What are you referring to? "DVI", "VGA" or the actual newer Display port interface?

Dell also has a support forum, staffed by mostly users like this forum. That is another alternative for specific Dell hardware help.

I inherited a couple as projects and I am wondering after I wipe the hard drives, what would be the best image to deploy?

They both currently have 4G of memory, and a Pentium 4 3.80 CPU.

I want to keep the cost to a minimum.

The cost will be for a copy of Win7, can't use what is already installed on another computer. I have a similar Dell Optiplex 755 that came with Vista that is running Linux Mint 17 64-bit quite happily and my wallet is happy because Linux is free. Because I have a couple of Win7 Desktops [a Custom and a rescued Dell Inspiron] and a Custom Win8.1 Desktop already I don't plan to redo the Optiplex any time soon but maybe after Win9 comes out?

I use the free GPARTED bootable CD [created from the downloaded .iso file] to wipe HDDs so as to have a fresh start.

I just got a new M4500 with a Samsung PM800 64GB SSD and a Toshiba 7200RPM storage drive. Both of these drives are set to non-RAID. I noticed when I went into the BIOS that it was set to RAID On instead of AHCI, even though there is no RAID setup between the two drives.

I ran the CrystalDiskUtility and the most it eeks out is at 94%. The built in Performance Utility in Windows 7 currently measures at 6.7

I was told an SSD should equal out to close to 100% and at least 7.0 as benchmarks if I want to utilize all the performance it offers. Is this the best that it can do?

Any info would be most appreciated. Thanks.

The Windows logo appears and goes black I can see the cursor but it takes about 5 minutes to get to the desktop. When I'm finally up and running the screensaver reverts back to the laptop lid as primary instead of my main monitor to cancel the screen saver I have to move my cursor over to the laptop monitor for Windows to cancel the screen saver. And the desktop slide show does not work anymore either.

I have a Precision M6800 running Win7, and a Nvidia K4100M Quadro.
I upgraded to Solidworks 2016 and ran Solidworks 2016 Rx to make sure everything in my system would jive well with the new software. The report said I should install the newer driver 354.56. I ran the update but it fails, and it doesn't directly mention what is failing just that the driver fails. The update rolled back the older driver but now upon a reboot I have a black screen that lasts for about 3-5 minutes before I get the login screen, which is very abnormal. 
I've ran the driver in admin mode, and did a custom install to do a clean driver install, also I can't get the driver to install in safe mode either.

We have two Dell Precision 390. One with the Conroe E6300, and one with the Pentium 4 631, Cedar Mill variety.
We would like to upgrade the P4 to something better.

We have a Q6600 CPU lying here, and a ancient Pentium D 830 dual core CPU, but it's gotta be better performer than a single core  P4.

Are the motherboards the same in these two 390s? I'm thinking our E6300 could be upgraded to a Q6600, but the 390 with the P4 I'm not sure about. They both are socket 775. We already have the correct heatpipe heatsink needed for the hotter CPUs.

Tonight I formatted and re-installed XP on my machine. After re-installing everything, and fudging around with the resources CD Dell gave me (I installed what I think is everything; I see nothing relating to video drivers), I noticed something was wrong with my video settings. I only have two resolution settings: 800x600 and 1024x768.

I have tried everything from Windows Update (which on a fresh install only gave me 18 updates, all critical--just security stuff) to getting the latest drivers from NVidia. I believe my card is a mobile FX5200 GO. The card isn't showing up on my device manager at all. I think the problem has to do with my Video Controller, which is showing up as not installed. When I try to install it via the New Hardware Found utility, it says the drivers cannot be found neither on Windows or my resources CD.

Any help is appreciated, I would like to skip having to call Dell.

I am looking to add 64GB of ram with 16x4GB sticks. I understand I need the riser boards to do so which I don't have yet. I noticed that the riser boards are labeled Riser_1, Riser_2, Riser_3, Riser_4.
Locally there are Riser_3 and Riser_4 boards. Can I use these or do I need Riser_1, Riser_2 boards?

A:Precision T7400 Workstation: Memory Riser Boards

One of the riser cables is CR388 not sure if there are 2 or only 1 riser power cable.  Some say the 690 risers are NOT correct for the 7400.What I can say for sure is that there are 4 boards and 2 risers each facing the opposite way hense the 3 & 4 designation on some risers.

JF806 and JF807 are bolted back to back and it appears to me that the riser power cable is only on one side just like on the T7400 risers.
Look at pic below.

The riser power cables are attached to the large P24 connector from the power supply, using a CN-0CR388 cable which splits it into another two memory riser connector cables. Also, the 7400 riser version has a different memory fan assembly.   Its not a simple just plug in risers and use it install.

The four memory riser cards are connected together in sets of two. Do not attempt to disconnect the memory riser cards from each other.  Each memory riser card is numbered in the upper left hand corner. These numbers indicate which DIMM slot on the system board each riser card must be inserted into. Only the DIMM_1-4 slots (the slots with the white securing clips) on the system board can be used with the riser cards. The other slots (DIMM_5-8) must be left vacant.

I have a dell Inspiron 1545 running Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1, 64 bit. The hard drive went out so I replaced it with one out of an old Acer Aspire running the same Windows 7 version. It accepted my Windows Activation as genuine, however, my system information shows that is is still an Acer Aspire and my Mobile Intel 4 Series Family Chipset won't recognize the driver. The Properties of the chipset shows this message "This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12)
If you want to use this device, you will need to disable one of the other devices on this system."
Please help!

A:Mobile Intel Chipset4 Series Family won't work on Dell Inspiron 1545

This is appearing as a Acer because it contains the OEM Windows 7 installation with all of the Acer bloatware.
You made a mistake which probably will necessitate a fresh installation of Windows.  The motherboard has identifiers that Windows recognizes the first time it is started for the first time in the computer.  When you move a hdd to another computer with a different motherboard it will see a different set of identifiers which can cause the hdd to either not boot the operating system or create problems like you are experiencing.
In the future, when you go to move a drive with Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1, or Windows 10 you need to generalize the operating system.  This will remove all of the current identifiers.
 If you run sysprep on the HHD/SSD with Windows 7 or 8.1 before using it with another motherboard you should be be able to boot from it without any complications. You want to remove all hardware identifiers from the HDD/SSD, this generalizes the drive.
Click on the Start orb, then type cmd in the Search box.
cmd will appear under Programs above the search box, right click on it and choose Run as administrator.
This will open the Elevated Command Prompt.
In the Elevated Command Prompt type in CD C:\Windows\System32\Sysprep, then 
use the command: sysprep /generalize /oobe /shutdown.
Don't power the drive back on until it's in the other computer.
Note: You'll want to install the new motherboard chipset drivers for the new motherboard after moving the drive.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!. System spec updated.

A:Ati firepro graphic card driver installation problems

Anointedone, welcome to the Seven Forums.

If it is the FireGL V7350 listed in your specs then the driver version you listed is not for it. You can read the release notes for it here,


Problem is that your card is an older DirectX 9 based card and AMD has not (and will not) released a Windows 7 driver for it,

Note: AMD?s DirectX 9 ATI FireGL graphics accelerators are not officially supported under Windows 7. If the user chooses to, they can install the ATI Catalyst Windows Vista graphics driver under Windows 7. Please be aware that none of the new Windows 7 graphics driver (WDDM 1.1) features are supported (as the Windows Vista level graphics driver is limited to WDDM 1.0 level support). Using the ATI Catalyst Windows Vista driver under Windows 7 is not officially supported by AMD, and as such AMD will not provide any form of customer support for users running in this configuration

The best you're going to get is the last Vista driver for it,

I was playing bf2 when all of the sudden it gets choppy and part of the screen was all distorted and black. WHAT IS HAPPENING TO MY PC!!!

VIDEO CARD= nVIDIA GeForce pcx 5750

A:major glitch in video card HELP!!

Maybe re-install BF2 or re-install the card itself. Are all your other games working? If they are it's probably the software. If nothing works, I'd System Restore to go to the most recent time when it worked. System Restore can be found at "Search" ---> type in "sytem restore" -->and click on it---> press "restore to an earlier time" or something like that. :angel: Hope it works!

Alright, so I ugpraded from XFX nVidia Geforce 7950GT to Visiontek ATI Radeon HD 4870.

Compared to the old card, it's a lot of improvement. Here are the other specs:
Q6600 Quad core processor
4GB of DDR2-1066 ram

Problem with FPS right now is with World of Warcraft.
On the old card, I ran at an average of 200FPS, with peeks of 350-400 and lows of 90-100 (during raids and Alterac valley, mostly), now I hit 200FPS
max and 40-50 on lows , with an average on 140(haven't even tested alterac valley or raids, but I am pretty sure I'll 20-30, unplayable). Any idea what might be the cause of this? On areas with 150FPS, it's smoother than it was before, but my FPS is really really low.

Tested other games and the FPS seems increased and the running is much smoother. But the FPS is alright.

My computer currently packs the "the beast" (codename for my Geforce2 mx400). Im sadly departing from i have ordered a 9700PRO off ebay which should arrive thursday. I know the best way to ensure going fron Nvidia to ATI is to reformat, but that is not an option. I would like to know what to do to ensure my new card runs the best it can when it gets here. How shall i go about removing the old vid things and going about the new ones properly?

My video card just recently started malfunctioning I first noticed when black dots would appear over videos during playback I shrugged it off thinking it was nothing big Eventually I ended up playing Counter-Strike These are some screenshots of what it looks like in game It s also displaying everything else incorrectly as well There are blue pixels appearing all over the place on the desktop and in Browser windows and such I tried re-installing the card many times but nothing seems to work I think I might have damaged the card somehow but I don t know how exactly I put a cold pack on it for a minute or two when it first started malfunctioning figuring it might have been overheating Here is information about the card from dxdiag Name VisionTek XTASY Manufacturer ATI Technologies Inc Chip Type RADEON Series AGP x DAC Type Internal not card working Video properly. DAC MHz Approx Total Memory MB Current Display Mode x bit Hz Monitor Plug and Play Monitor I should mention that I have an onboard Video Card as well and when I hook the monitor up to that everything displays fine Does anyone have any possible solutions nbsp

Hello all I recently assembled a computer and all checks out fine except for the video card in my system information I ordered an N GTX PCI Express Graphics Card and when I try launching games my graphics card is instead displayed as an NVIDIA GeForce NVIDIA nForce a I tried some of the other tips I ve found when browsing through this site such as disabling the display adapter I have under the Device Manager but to no avail I also went into my BIOS and all I could find that pertained to my problem card Video properly? not displaying was the quot Primary Graphics Adapter quot which is set to quot PCI Express quot I m not sure if there was another option I was supposed to change but to my knowledge I couldn t find anything else I even went as far as taking my computer apart to check if It was plugged in correctly and to my knowledge it is One thing I do not understand is that the box my graphics card came in says it has dual fans and instead the one in my computer only has a single fan I m not sure if I was a victim of fraud or if I just wasn t doing something Video card not displaying properly? right If anyone could offer me any tips to solve this annoying issue I would appreciate it Thank you EDIT Sorry Missed a spot Before anyone asks yes I did update my drivers on the NVIDIA website I still haven t received any visual changes or notifications on the matter nbsp

A:Video card not displaying properly?

nForce is the chipset on AMD mobos. Is this correct? It could just be using the APU instead of the GPU.
