Gateway FX laptop Series Thread *mods and upgrades* - Page 215

post #2141 of 2331
I thought that the 7811FX was only able to handle 8GB of ram because of motherboard/CPU/OS limitations. When did this change, how did you make that possible?

Dang! How hot is your X9100 running when you have it at 3.8? Why is there such a huge difference between E0 and C0? Have any idea where I could find an E0 stepped one?

I'm having a video related issue with this laptop brand
My rig is stock, except for a WD Smartwave HD I bought as a replacement when the stock one stopped booting, it's the same model as the stock.
I'm running windows 7(64 bit) install, have the 9800gts nvidia card(1920 x 1200 resolution) and have all drivers fully updated.
The problem I'm having seems to imply that my video card is dieing. During video games, at random times, my computer crashes, the screen goes black, and the audio starts making a repeating BBBBBBBBB sound. At this point the only thing I can do is turn off and turn back on the computer.
This happens frequently on higher end games, and less frequently on lower end games
At first I thought this was a heating issue, so I cleaned out my computer and made sure the fans are running. The fans are running fine, and heat is being removed efficiently(a little more now than before I cleaned it) and everything is still crashing.
I've been using speedfan to monitor the heat of my rig, and from what I've seen is heat has nothing to do with the crashes. I've double checked my drivers, I've even installed older driver versions to make sure my video drivers are fine, as well as installing beta drivers, and this hasn't helped. I've also tried installing drivers from scratch, but no luck.
Is there anything I can do to help solve this problem? Or is my video card really dieing?






Actually that is a common problem, and is due to overvolting of the gpu

A fix can be found here


Good luck, and happy gaming!!!

Someone in here asked about 8 gb ram, not sure exactly what they were getting at, but the P 7811fx does accept 8gb of ram.

I use 2 x 4gb DDR3 sticks. Works great..

As far as my temps go, I haven't done any hard core gaming yet. When I get a chance I'm going to PCMark test it and get a benchmark (I have a bench using my old 8400 CPU that came stock)

That score was 1036.

I also tried a T9800 and got a score of 1366 using that CPU.

Anyways those are rather vague numbers, but when I get some time I'll see if I can post up some stuff. I'll also include some temps at idle and being throttled on fully.
Probably within a week or so.

I have 8GB of RAM in my 7811FX. Here's how I got it to work:

I put in 1 stick and booted. Shut down. Put in 2nd stick and booted, and it worked. It wouldn't boot when I first put them both in at once. Why that is, I do not know. May or may not work for you.

Hey guys i have a gateway fx laptop p-7811fx and recently I have had some problems. When i am playing video games unplugged it works perfectly, but when its plugged in it runs so slow it is unplayable. This recently happens on diablo 3 and starcraft 2 and when the battery is low and i do replug it in it wont charge untill i turn the game off and replug in the cord. Any advice on what the problem might be would be greatly appreciated! also it is just the stock BB version that was like 1500 a couple years ago

I had the same issues and I ended up deleting and reinstalling the battery controller drivers and fixed it. There's a guide somewhere....

I have a Gateway FX MS2252 with a P7350 processor.
