I'm a happy user of my M4400 for 3 years now and i'm starting some serious upgrade/improve here.
1) I overclocked the quadro fx 1700m from 625 (gpu)/800(memory)/1250(shader) to 735/1010/1505
GPU temp stay below 85°c, so it's ok for me.
I was a little bit septic with the real effect of this overclocking, but it really rocks. I can play Starcraft2 comfortably now.
2)i will change the hard drive
it will runs a SSD Crucial M4 128go, my "old" 7200rpm hdd is going to fit inside a E-modular bay caddy instead of the DVD/R reader.
3) I'm also looking to overclock the core 2 duo T9400... but after hours of googling i can't find a clue, except than Setfsb can't do nothing for me.
i'm not really enthusiastic with pin modding...
Any ideas here?
So i'm also googling about CPU upgrade.
do you know which Intel CPU with socket P and Intel PM45 chipset will works in my beloved M4400?
May be you don't have straight answers, but any leads will be much appreciated here!
thanks a lot
Sorry for my poor english, it's not my native language.
For the cpu I have just install a T9900 . Job done in 5 minutes, I had mount a hybrid hd, great improvement
Wanted to ask a greater group of users about a random problem I am having with my m4400. After shutting down my laptop & heading home, i find that sometimes I remove it from the laptop bag and the whole unit is red hot. It clearly has been 'running' as the fans are still spinning and certain lights like the WIFI light and the ethernet port activity light are sometimes on.
The same can be said for hibernate mode.
What subsequently happens if the laptop is left overnight, the battery runs flat and first boot returns the RTC error.
I've tried BIOS's from A03 through to A16, A23 now A27.
Hopefully someone has had a problem like this in the past and can advise.
Hi Tyronee, there could be a few reasons for overheating. Are you comfortable with opening up and cleaning your machine-specifically the motherboard and fan? Your air vents might also have restricted airflow. Have you tried taking the battery out and powering only through the AC adapter? Let me know if you continue to have this issue.
