Question about HEWLETT-PACKARD HP Pegatron M2N78-LA ASUS OEM Violet6-GL8E NVIDIA 9100 AM3 Motherboard (610074079576)

2 Answers

I have an HP pavilion with an AMD Phenom X4 9750 processor with an Nvidia GeForce 9100 graphics card. I have noticed a ridiculous decrease in frame rate that happens randomly while i play pc games that has not happened before. I have run complete system scans for malware and viruses and the computer is clean. Is there any way i can do something to find out how to increase my frame rate in games. I have dropped the settings to performance and lowered grahpics settings to low, these options still dont fix the frame rate issue. All driver updates are installed. I dont know what else i can do besides buy a new graphics card, but i would like to fix the one i have if at all possible.

It's the northbridge and the heatsink next to the sata ports on the mobo. HP pretty much messed it up and not only used a cheap heatsink and paste, but also put it right next to the sata ports. so what happens is the northbridge overheats due to poor heat cooling and locks up the mobo sata controller. unplug just the sata drives and power to them. computer will boot just fine as long as there wasnt too much damage to the controller. solution. sue HP and never buy again. fix. take off heatsink and replace with fan heatsink combo with a heat gun and epoxy glue. hmmm. also what i actually did was put in a add on video card gt430 because price was right. put an old cpu/heatsink set on top of video card as close to the old heat sink as possible.

a better solution. by two add on cards. one being the video card and another being a sata controller card. while you are at it. get a gigabit lan card.

Hi,
you may even find a new graphics card won't help. you are most likley suffering from an overheated northbridge. there not usually monitored for temp this is on the MB so, not good news as this will eventually go dead. and even re- greasing at this point won't help. however. by disassembling both the video card and northbridge heat sinks. you should find one of them pretty dried out.

hope this helps

Does anyone know where to get the schematic for the dv6550us motherboard?


The closest I come to an HP Pavilion dv6550us, on HP Support, or on the internet is;

Pavilion dv6550tx
Next inline is Pavilion dv6560us,
then Pavilion dv6450us

Both use the Fairchild Semiconductor Industries - FDS6679 - Power MOSFET, and Alpha & Omega Semiconductor LTD - AO4407 - Power MOSFET, in the DC - DC circuit; as far as I know.

Both are Obsolete, but there are cross match examples out there.

Asking for a Schematic, do I assume you are attempting
Board Level Component replacement?

What SMD/SMT IC component are you trying to replace?
(Surface Mount Device/Surface Mount Technology. Integrated Circuit)

Motherboard chipset info, and processor socket info, for processor upgrade.
Same thing for Ram Memory upgrade.
It does use DDR2 Sdram (SO-DIMM), and at 667MegaHertz, to my knowledge.

What usually goes bad on the HP Pavilion dv2000 series, Pavilion dv6000 series, and Pavilion dv9000 series of Notebook PC's?

The cooling for the graphics chipset is inadequate, therefore the graphics chipset overheats, and partially melts the Solder Joints in the BGA surface mount.

Resulting in no graphics.

Power MOSFET's in DC - DC circuit go bad.

Game crashes and won't start


I have the same problem, and I have just recently solved it. What you need is a graphics card, and that cost money. If you don't want to spend the money on the graphics card then you should just send the game back because there is no point too it, it will never work properly without the graphics card. I hope this helps.

You have Vista 64 bit right? I looked and the newest nvidia driver is 182.08 located here:

3. Shut down computer.
4. Remove video card and re-install it.
5. Start computer and install new nvidia driver.

Having problem with new games


What is the Name and model number of your motherboard

The nforce 430 is an older chipset model and may not use the full capacity of the Phenom processor ...some boards won't even boot and there are Bios updates available for others ...etc

The onboard graphics (geforce 6150 se) is negated by the 8800 GTX ...good card......the problem isn't your video card

Your also running PC5300 ,,667mhz ram ....if board is capable of PC6400 ...800mhz ....there could be another speedup

The bottlenck seems to be with the board and possibly Ram

(Again MB model and name)

Also make sure you have all the latest drivers for Vcards ...chipsets BIOS etc......
