Nice lets see some alienware pictures lmao
Haha sure thing. I dont have my digi-cam now. I might get it tomorrow. If not i'll take the pics from my phone tomorrow
Sorry for the shit quality. Took them using my phone.
Its cool man i like it
Heres my lappy
I upgraded from a XPS M1530. Gave it to my wife.
I want a alienware lappy lols
lol. their not cheap.
It really cool. Can change the back-lighting colours and stuff. Btw add me to the 1st page.
Yeah i know there not cheap,i may have to take my friends old Alienware Area-51 which is a 17" heavy machine with an old pentium 4 and a GPU i can't remember lmao.
And will do
Can one of you guys, please, look in this site (Portuguese auctions, sorta like eBay) scroll down to the pictures and see if this particular graphics card is MXM.
I'm sure it is not completely MXM format, I've been to this site and can't help but wonder if this can me somehow be compatible. This was taken from a laptop, so the owner claims, and it does have the holes for the GPU cooler, just has two other screw holes in odd places (not the MXM format).
So, can anyone give some opinions, please?
@mdsx1950 I wouldn't buy a Alienware for it's shifting colors, lol, but rather it's performance. The colors are sure to distract during a game and above all, after some use, I'm sure it won't look as pretty as when you bought it, unless it's always clean and it's used with and external keyboard/mouse (my case).
i dont think that is MXM since it is for an A300... but unsure.. only based on the fact that I know the A305's are def not MXM
Performance + Design. And i'll keep it clean lol.
The A305's chassis are the same as the A300s. The reason I wanted you to see was if there was any chance of making a GPU upgrade to my A300. The CPU and RAM already are kick-ass, the HDD can be easily changed (thinking of a 7200rpm 500GB one) but the GPU department is the only FAIL here...and I wanted to mend that, well at least try to.
I got a HP mini 311 /w 3GB of corsair ram
I don't mind the light up keyboard. Makes it easier to get my game on at night. This thing is awesome with the 1920x1200. You get sucked into it and become one with the game. lol. I turn them off during the day. There's even an option to have them change colors on their own. I played with it a little. That can be distracting. With the 260m 1GB in sli. It handles everything.
can I join? I've been cranking a decent laptop for about 6 weeks now and it's all I'll have for the next year.
HP Pavilion DV6-3030TX
damn them Alienware lappys are trippy looking.
heres a piccy of me set up with said laptop too, such a weird turnaround from a gaming rig but... she'll have to do!
nice laptop wolf! sorry for late reply since i haven't been looking at my threads lately lol but yeah your in.
1 month later, lol.
I'd like to post a question, has anyone here got any experience with HP Compaq nx6125 laptops?
I have never had any issue with my compaq laptop,i have only seen 1 person complain about them and thats the compaq precerio*can't spell it lol* models i think but overall i think they are great build the normal compaq models.
It's just that I'm having a problem with one (not saying it's a bad laptop, lol). It's related to the GPU, that much I've discovered, but I'm unable to correct the error.
It started with blue screens, a few driver re-installs corrected the problem, so far, but if I turn on the laptop and let it startup, boot, start windows and don't touch a thing, after 5 minutes or so, the laptop freezes and there's major graphics corruption, the screen gradually turns all white and then dark on the edges. If I start the laptop and after the windows loads, I start any program or even move the mouse this doesn't happen.
The laptop's gpu is an integrated Mobility Radeon X300 on a Radeon Xpress 200M chipset.
That sounds like some old GPU X300?? i was going say try applying new thermal paste but intergrated GPU are pain in buttside to do it because you need take whole lappy apart,that is with my laptop,not sure with your one.
can netbook owners join ?
Yeah netbook owners are more than likely to be welcomed here
Quick question: Is the 8600M GT on the Asus G1S an MXM card?
Reason: Found a guy that is selling his laptop cheap (~100€) because the GPU fried (well, obviously...G86 core) and I'm thinking, just swapping the GPU for another one would end me with a good laptop for it's price...opinions?
EDIT: I can also repair the current the current GPU, in case that it's soldered. Just needs to be baked again .
EDIT2: No, already found out. It's soldered. Well, that makes thing more expensive...or less...need to do math.
