Dell Inspiron E1705

Laptops/Netbooks/SFF/Smartphones | Overclockers Forums - www.overclockers.com
Got 2 of these for free from a friend.

One has a 1.6Ghz core duo

1gb (512mb x2) 667 ddr2

100Gb hdd

ATI x1400 256 MB with HyperMemory

2nd one has a 1.82Ghz chip, but pretty much the same as the first. I sold the first one and kept the 2nd. Did a few upgrades:

Added a T7200 (2.0Ghz,4m cache,667mhz bus)

Added 2x2gb ddr2 667

256mb SSD

Swapped out the AMD card for an Nvidia. Bought this off ebay : P104H Dell nVidia GeForce GO 7900 GTX 512MB GDDR3 Precision M . Take the sucker apart and proceed with my upgrades with chip, nvidia card, mem. Put it all back together and power on. Go into the bios and I see the 4gb of mem and the 7900GTX

Start my reinstall of windows 7, get all my updates and done...or so I thought. Install GpuZ and I don't see my 7900 GTX Instead what comes up is an Nvidia Quadro NVS 510M. I check and recheck and the Quadro keeps coming up. Now I'm heated because it took me several hours of work to swap everything out, not to mention the time I waited after I ordered the chip and the video card, and now I can't game on my lappy

Dam Quadro card isn't a gaming card. I fired off an email to the seller I got it from (he's got perfect ebay refs) so I'm sure he'll do the right thing and send me what I paid for. I never had any problems on ebay so this is a first. I know, it's ebay right?
