    Dell Inspiron 6400 100% cpu due Desktop Window Manager


    Recently I've updated my Dell Inspiron 6400 from windows 7 to windows 10. Installation went perfectly but when I use the correct drivers for the mobile intel(R) 945GM Express Chipset Family video card then 'Desktop Window Manager' take up a lot of CPU when browsing with Chrome or microsoft edge. When I use the standard Windows driver "Microsoft basic display adapter" then everythings works allright but then I'm limited with resolution.

    Is there a workaround for this old device to get videocard drivers which aren;t using that much CPU?

    :)

    Upgrading Dell Inspiron 6400 to Windows 10

    Hi,

    I am trying to upgrade my old and trusty Dell Inspiron 6400 to Windows 10 but come up with a report which says 'BIOS not compatible'.

    Is there a way to bypass the error and install Windows 10.

    Thanks in advance.

    OverClock Dell Inspiron 6400

    try the same one...it might work...

    if the numbers don't match up don't set it..or if they seem to not make sense..

    the fsb is a multiplyer of the cpu..

    in our systems it should be 21x cpu and 4x at the fsb.

    soo 133 x 21 will give you the suggested cpu speeds.. divided by 4 will give you the suggested fsb speeds.. or you can just get PC wizard 2010.. this will give you all the info you'll need to know.. to find the correct pll etc..your multiplyer might be diffrent as well.

    Dell's model numbers and codeings will be listed diffrently then they are on the board.. you'll have to look on your motherboard for a small rectangle with ICSXXX or winbond. Stamped on it. then find the same numbers that coinside with dells.. a01-a08 etc.. to find out what features resemble an intel's bios features as well.. this will also help in locateing which pll to choose.. and try.

    133 would be the fsb speeds..

    basically your trying to match up similar intel boards to your dell.. most likely a 865.. and a socket 478??

    setfsb's website ‚±‚̃y[ƒW‚Í“s‡‚É‚æ‚è‹xŽ~‚¢‚½‚µ‚Ü‚·

    will list all supported boards..

    the one i've tried most closely resembles my board and it's chipset features, since dell used a mobile chipset similar to this toshiba's.. it worked..

    Nvidia GeForce Go 7300 in Dell Inspiron 6400 - unable upgrade to W10


    I have Windows 7 Professional running perfectly in a Dell Inspiron 6400 with a Samsung SSD. I was accepted by Microsoft for a free upgrade to Windows 10 but I now have a message from Microsoft telling me that I will be unable to upgrade due the OEM Nvidia GeForce Go 7300 being incompatible with Windows Ten. I have the latest driver dated March 2009 for that device. Can anyone offer advice on how or where I can make my laptop pass the Windows 10 installation criteria?

    with grateful thanks
