Hi guys, i've been reading here for some time now, and i finally registered, because i have an issue.

I have a Dell 9300 Inspiron which came shipped with a Geforce 6800 Go 256mb. I decided after one year i needed an upgrade, and modded it to a 7800 GTX which I bought on Ebay. So far, the card is working a-ok, and works better, cooler then the old one.

Now: When I bought the laptop, it came with dell standard drivers. Overclocked, i made a 3dmark2005 score of 4100 points on that original card. That's all the testing I did. Just before I bought the new GPU, I ran another test, and (overclocked on same value's )scored 'only' 29xx-ish. This is significantly lower then I used to do.

Now, with the 7800 GTX, I can do (Non-Overclocked) 4700 points in 3dmark 2005 ... which is too low, I think. I should be hitting 6k and higher on this baby. Im running XP Pro SP2, Directx 9C, 84.25 Forceware drivers, have 2gb of ram, 60gb 7200rpm disk, and have latest bios version (A05).

What am I doing wrong/forgetting here? I did a clean install btw, so I don't expect any software issues to be causing this degrade.

-edit- I read the reply above mine, and saw he did 29xx in 3dmark2006. I did about 2650 in 3dmark2006 with this new card. Now I'm confused :-S

Your card is running in half speed mode due to lack of power. You are one step into a three step upgrade. The 7800GTX needs more power than the 6800go so you have to make the box give it more juice. To do this you have to flash to a modified XPS2 BIOS. Now not only do you need to flash the BIOS to tell the board to give the card more juice, you have to then actually get it more power which means you can no longer boot with the 6-cell battery or 90watt power brick; you can only boot with a 9-cell or a 130w brick(remember you are trying to use an XPS card, there's a reason you can only get XPS with a 9-cell and a 130w brick). Even after the flash it will only run FULL power when it's plugged in (130w brick, very important)

I've been running my 9300 like this since last November; once you get it running full bore it will get ~7000 in 3Dmark05. Be aware it will run hotter than your 6800 once you get it running full speed. I just got an M1710 (2.33 C2D, 7900GTX-512MB, 2GB 667Mhz, 100GB7200) and this card it WAY hotter than the 6800 ever got, 7800 either; but this box screams...

For a great guide, an ISO of the modded XPS2 BIOS, and all you want to know about doing this little upgrade/mod just go here:

Good luck

Yes the Dell AC Adaptors with the round plugs and centre pin have a way to communicate with the Laptop.

So the laptop can tell which AC Adaptor is connected via the centre pin.

I have a dell D410 which comes with a PA-9 AC Adaptor and in the BIOS in the system properties it shows the 90w Adaptor.

When I connect my PA-15 (150w) connector (hard to find this one) it shows this as the 150w adaptor in the BIOS.

The D410 only needs the 65w, but the BIOS reads whats attached.

Morel of story is, the BIOS is limiting the GPU speed as it's detected that the power supply is 90w or less.

To run the 7800 GTX takes about 110w at full speed, 90w is just not cutting it.

Ebay is full of 130w adaptors, make sure it's a PA-13 (or 15) as this has the right plug.

I'm considering a XPS gen2 my self would like to do some fiddleing around with the go7800 GTX mod.

The i9400 with go7900 GTX mod is somewhat expensive (US$575)

84.21 ARE the best, but they have some serious compatibility issues with some games. The Godfather won't even run them.

XPS! Yeah, but have you seen those cases.

A gorgeous women could walk on by, eyeing you, see the shiny back of the case and think "all the cute ones are shooting for the other team" (if you know what I mean).

Seriously, look elsewhere. Alienware is slightly more expensive, but their lightwieght and have introduced SLI for notebooks.

Some driver don't expose the temperature panel... some just don't have it.

Best option to get the temps is I8kFanGUI.

i heard that I8kFanGUI. steel "power" if you have it runing when you gaming, is it true. (ofcourse its steel some power, but do i feel it).

If you are scared of I8kFanGUI wasting frame rates... don't activate the temperature logging found in the new nvidia control pannel.

Here are my results on 3DMark 2003:

Without I8kFanGUI: 7155

With I8kFanGUI: 7172

It's called a performance raise... not a performance drop. A simple test can often crush an urban legend. So if you want to spread an urban legend... say that having I8kFanGUI boosts the 3D performance. *rolls eyes*

thanks F.R. for your answer. like i said before, i cant "activate the temperature logging found in the new nvidia control pannel." just because some smartass took away the temp log at 84.69. ive tried some others Dell driver for go7900gs (84.29, 84.63) there the temp log works fine, BUT theres dual view and clone is f***** up. so irritated. i want to find a original Dell driver (fairly new) there temp log AND dualview works, can it be so hard.

a other thing is, if i use driver with modded INF, often the dualview dosent works at that driver.

use now Dell driver 84.69, because the dualview works, and its a good gamingdriver.

Lol, It wasn't removed by some "smartass"....It's just an issue between the driver and your laptop.

Hello there, I'm new to owning a laptop and as for overclocking "GOs" - inexperienced.

I tried out some drivers and what seemed to suit best (I tryed 93.71 G3, 92.81 G2 and I'm now on 91.47 G1).

3dMark2001 - 22515

2dMark2005 - 6705

But I'd be interested in how can i overclock my 7800GTX Go ? I've done benching with desktops many times but never with a laptop before. It seems like my clocks are locked...?

I have read that this may be but is this on all a) nVidias :) specific cards or c) specific branders cards?

Anyways I read that flashing is the only option and since I've never done it before I thought that maybe someone in this topic could point me to a topic covering it. I haven't found ANY bioses to use to overclock my card whatsoever. There was one link in notebookforum or what was it called but no working link.

I'm sorry if I should have posted it to somewhere else or done it different. :)

Just activate the overclocking feature in your control panel. Just need the right .inf and you can overclock the graphics card from the control panel.

Could you point me to "right" inf file? Also, how do I use inf with a driver?

One more problem is that I don't seem to find any way to see my videocards temperatures which I find very bad due to a problem I'm having: in games my fps suddenly dropps after a while down to 10 or so, stays there for a minute or so and then goes back to normal.

I've tested 6-8 drivers now and I'm planning to test 2 more but I have not seen so dramatic differences in points as you. I've been testing 9x and one 8x, NGO, DHzer0point, Xtreme-G and original.

What is the best 90 series driver?

I'm still running the "oblivion" 84.25 on mine. Still seems to be the best. Anything better?

Tweak's r us ExtremeG 91.37-v2.50 I use for my 7800GTX and gets best framerates using that driver. Your 7800GTX is locked from software clocking, no inf file solves this period. Flashing is the only way and there is an unlocked bios Juan Lu's which you can flash to and that locks up your 7800GTX so you can overclock in software.

But I flashed mine to 450/1200 instead and runs that daily in games.

Just thought I would share these 3D06 benchies

Go 7800 GTX (450/1250) in a 2.13 Ghz Inspiron 9300 (2GB DDR2 RAM, 5400 RPM 80 GB)

83.40 -> 3613

83.60 -> 3636

83.91 -> 3624

84.20 -> 3639

84.21 -> 3730

84.25 -> 3628

84.69 -> 3327

165.01 -> 1992

TRUS 81.98 -> 3572

TRUS 97.92 -> 2575

(all on clean installment)

So 3730 is the highest I can get.

How some get near 4000 or even over with similar machines, is still a mystery.

Advice is always welcome. :)

Would the Geforce Go 7800 GTX or the Geforce Go 7800 GS be compatible with my Aleinware Area-51 m5550 laptop? I know I have a MXM III module and I also know that my laptop is compatible with the radeon x1900. I am just wondering because I know someone selling a Geforce Go 7800 GS and a Geforce Go 7800 GTX and I would like to know if my laptop is compatible.

Any help is appreciated. Thx in advance.

We need some life in this thread. I'm still using this laptop and now on Vista basic.

What are the best drivers for Vista? Is there a 84.25 equiv for Vista?
