I have recently acquired my Dell Inspiron 15 7000, and I am interested in building an egpu setup for it. It has a USB-C port. Any recommendations/guides out there?
Hey everyone! After lots of searching it looks like this is the go-to place for laptop mods online, so I figured this would be the best place to ask something like this.
I picked up a Dell E6530 for basically scrap value, and I love the thing. Runs Xubuntu great, battery is halfway decent, and I can play 99% of the games I own on it. My friend on the other hand picked up an E6440 with its silver-ish finish along the back. As much as I love my 6530 I've gotta say, that thing looks great.
To get to the point now, I was wondering if it's possible for me to polish the top of the lid on my 6530 to have a more silver finish like that (or maybe even a mirror finish if I sand it down with a fine enough grit). Really what I want to know is if the dark grey part of the lid is actually metal. I can't seem to get a definitive answer online, and I tried the magnet test on it and it wasn't magnetic at all. This doesn't necessarily mean it's not metal though, as aluminum isn't magnetic but is obviously a sandable/polishable metal. One source said the laptop has anodized aluminum parts on it, but they didn't specify whether it was something internal or external.
Can anyone here provide me some insight? If the grey part is definitely a metal and not a plastic, I think I'm gonna give it a try. As stated before I got this thing for scrap value, so if in the end it doesn't work out I'm not gonna cry over it or anything. Still though, I'd rather not run into this blind. If this is indeed possible though and I can accomplish what I want with a decent looking result, I'll post up some pictures with the method I used for others to do as well.
Thanks in advance!
I have a Dell Inspiron 5555 with BIOS A12 and I am missing some options in the advance menu. The BIOS seems to be shared between the 5455 and the 5755, if it helps. Can anyone help me figure a way to have all the options in the BIOS available?
I have attached the results archive from the backup tool, if it helps
Thanks in advance!
I have been attempting to change my boost clocks values for the longest time, though I've been unsuccessful. I managed to flash my modded BIOS, though no changes seem to have had happened, along with no errors either. Here's all the stuff I used and was able to get. If someone is able to help me with this, it would be greatly appreciated.
I've a really weird problem. My laptop has started beeping when use nvidia gpu yesterday. I dissambled my laptop and tried to plug out every single hardware and test them one by one. There's 22 beeps and equal interval beetween them. It goes shutdown after that 22 beeps.
My laptop is Clevo W650SJ and it uses Nvidia 840M gpu. That problem isn't causing because of windows or installed driver cos i tried to reinstall windows but it started to beeping when w10 installer check devices. Also I've bios password on startup , if i don't type password and hit the enter , it starts beeping after 10-15 sec. Also fan speed goes up to maximum and it doesn't slow down untill i shut it down or shutdown itself.
If i use any program or run a game which uses nvidia gpu , it starts beeping but if i close the game on first beeps , beeping is stops. But fan speed still maxiumum until i shutdown to pc.
I am looking a way to fix it. I didn't make any changes on my pc before than this problem.
