Having problems with your Dell XPS M1710 Notebook ?

Dell XPS M1710 Monitor flickering.....

\015 It has done really well as a computer so far - have had it three years and a bit - now I have noticed when it is left on for more then a few hours ( which is often ) the monitor starts to flicker chronically and I desperately have to try to shut the laptop down and let it cool again for some hours before I can switch it on again. Is my computer just old and requires a new part? Or could it be a driver that requires updating? It's perplexing to this pleb...\015

Answers :

Sounds like your onboard video card is gettin hot. Clean the dust out of your system (dissasemble if nessesary) check the fans and make sure they are clean and clean your heatsinks im sure this will solve your problem. Also you can buy cooling pads for laptops to sit on. They are usb powered so no extra wires YAY. good luck
I do not think that this a driver problem
\015\012It is probably a peripheral problem or at worst a power supply problem
\015\012However try and switch monitors first.
