    Thanks for the suggestions! I'll take a look at that NEC when I'm back home from college.

    Monitor for photo/video editing?

    I have a TN panel, but I need something with much better color accuracy, not to mention, higher resolution. (My XPS 15 with the 1080p screen has really spoiled me) Here is what I need: - IPS (best color accuracy/representation for the price) - 22"-26" - 1080p or 1920 x 1200 (Preferably the...

    Skyrim not detecting 525m on XPS 15?

    Wow, thanks!! I knew first and third one. The second is interesting as well, but the e-sata/USB BLEW my mind haha. Right as I read that, I grabbed my friends USB cord and tried it, then just stared at it in awe. He had no idea what was going on :p Same here. It's for at college or if I want to...

    Skyrim not detecting 525m on XPS 15?

    With a solid OC, I've been playing at 1600 x 900 with most high settings and rarely go below 30 fps, usually around 40 fps. I could play at 1920, but I'd rather a slightly lower resolution with higher settings than vice versa.

    Skyrim not detecting 525m on XPS 15?

    Though there seems to be a new issue... now my GPU WON'T stop working. It stays in 3D mode, causing the fan to spin up, slow down, spin up, slow down, every few seconds. One problem leads to the next... Edit: Scratch that. It just took awhile for it to downclock.

    Skyrim not detecting 525m on XPS 15?

    FINALLY! I uninstalled all of the Nvidia stuff, ran a driver sweep, then installed the 285.62 drivers instead of the new 290.53 beta drivers. Made sure to set Skyrim in the Nvidia control panel to use the GPU and it now works!

    Skyrim not detecting 525m on XPS 15?

    Update. Still haven't been able to fix it. I'm going to try another driver install, as the new beta drivers sure aren't helping me at all. I looked in the BIOS but couldn't find anything related to the GPU. Hmm, I'll have to give that a try. I'll try those drivers and see if ti works...

    Gionight, how on earth do you have such beautiful lighting on the faces? Those look AMAZING. Are we playing the same game? :p

    Skyrim not detecting 525m on XPS 15?

    I gave that a shot, just for the hell of it.... When I rebooted, it said the display wasn't connected to an Nvidia GPU.... this is just getting worse and worse....

    Skyrim not detecting 525m on XPS 15?

    Same thing.... Tried forcing the global setting to high performance, restarted steam (after a fresh install of Skyrim) and it showed it the first time. I closed out and went back into options and right back to the Intel HD.... oh man this is KILLING me.

    Skyrim not detecting 525m on XPS 15?

    Yepp. Tried that as well... It still only shows the integrated card under options. The only way I can even see the card is if I delete render info, skyrimpref.ini, and skyrim.ini... but it only shows it on the first boot and still won't use the GPU in game actually. I'm going to try a reinstall...

    I don't believe so... how would I differentiate it?

    Skyrim not detecting 525m on XPS 15?

    I was playing Skyrim and noticed I could barely get a good framerate on all low at 720p (I have the 1080p screen). In the launcher under graphics adapter all I can see is the Intel HD Series as the GPU. I'm running the newest beta drivers and even tried to force it to use the Nvida GPU in the...

    XPS 15 temperatures too high?

    I'm running the i7 2630QM. Usually when I edit photos and what not (Photoshop + Lighroom) my CPU gets warm, say 60C, but not too much higher. However, I was just rendering some videos in Premiere Pro for less than 2 minutes and noticed my temps were getting high. Ambient temp is relatively...

    Upgrade from 260 this weekend or wait a month?

    I missed it again :mad: I think I'm just not going to upgrade. Considering I'm only gonna be with my desktop for a month, then I'm abandoning it after fall break when I go back to college, it just makes more sense to wait until I'm home next summer for three months and I can get a better...
