    Default 1520 + How to Check VRAM

    OK, there are tons of threads on the DDR2/DDR3 thing, and how NTune RivaTuner can mess up/show wrong info and such. Well, those with their 1520's on hand, can you install the trial of Lavalys Everest 4.00 and use that to get a final verdict? Its Vista compatible and for all I know it displays everything perfectly fine.

    Here's a like to the site. http://www.lavalys.com/products/what...?ps=UE&lang=en

    I am going to be getting my 1520 sometime mid next week, but I am just curious on some other things too, like the RAM timings and such. and Lavalys Everst is the most powerful tool I have ever seen/used in finding specs on parts in a PC/Lappy.

    thread title misleading. Everest does NOT check VRAM for errors, it only reports VRAM TYPE

    that's what I said - check vram TYPE, not just check vram. It's two different things, you know.

    This thread is silly. I think it was clear enough given the context of current 1520 discussions

    You should be able to see the vram type, in the display -> gpu section



    The screenshot above is from my inspiron 6000.

    My GPU page is blank. When the program launched, it did mention that my system is not totally supported.

    excuse me but not everyone is into 1520 and discussions about it It's not a private 1520 forum, it's a forum for all kinds of dell laptops, so please, try to make up correct headings, when you posting a new thread to avoid confusion.
