HP/Compaq :: Pavilion Dv Memory Card Icon Change
I cannot find a way to change it, I have tired autorun.inf tricks and even using winbubble to change the icon. But its wont change the little bugger.
Anyone know a way to change this, be it registry key changes, I dont really care what it takes, it just needs to go away.

HP/Compaq :: HP Pavilion Dv2000 Memory Upgrade
what type of memory is compatible with my girlfriend's hp dv2000 laptop?
All I know so far is this.
It comes with 2x1gb sticks of PC2 5300 200PIN DDR2 SODIMM
I am interested in getting 4gb for her. Would OCZ be ok?
I am looking at these right now -
They are OCZ PC2-5400 DDR2 SODIMM 200 pin
Would these be compatible with her laptop? Or can someone recommend something else???
The 5400 is just the max speed it runs at, so it would be ok if it wast the 5300 like the stock hp has?
HP/Compaq :: HP Pavilion Dv8320us Wireless Card
Recently I got a wireless router HUAWEI EchoLife HG520s Home Gateway installed by my Internet provider. My HP dv8320us laptop has an Intel® PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection, but I can't get connected to my wireless network . The blue light of the wireless connection is on (blue), but I can't view other wireless networks to connect .
I'm using Vista Home Premium 32bit
HP/Compaq :: Pavilion Dv7 2040eo: Graphics Card Overheats
Whenever I play a game, sooner or later, the computer just promplty shuts down. The part of the computer which holds the graphics card is then generally very very hot, which leads me to guess that this is the problem. Note that it sometimes can run for several hours without complications, but other times it wont even take half an hour. It's getting very frustrating and this combined with a lot of other issues makes it an altogether very unpleasent experience using HP.
I have updated the bios, but not changed anything in it - no overclocking or anything.
HP/Compaq :: Video Card Might Have Died (pavilion Dv9730nr)
I bought a dv9730nr about a year and a half ago and never had any problems with it until a week ago. I was playing PES 2010 and suddenly, after the menu screen the screen went to black, everything froze and this weird "color" barcode appeared on top of the screen. I freaked out and rebooted the laptop, but it didn't even show the bootsplash and the "barcode" still appeared on top of the pitch black screen... after a couple of tries, I could get it to show the bootsplash and actually managed to system-restore it. Then it crashed again and I had to repeat the process.
When I actually got it working, I tested it again with a different game, and this time it gave me the nvlddmkm driver error and a BSOD. After the reboot, there was this ugly barcode again, so I had to repeat the "process" (rebooting time and time again until bootsplash appeared). Though it worked for a couple of days, yesterday I tried to watch a video and it froze, no nvlddmkm error, just the black screen and the color barcode. It took me hours to get around that and when I thought everything was fine (as fine as things could be, anyway), surfing the net and watching some images... bam, the screen went to black and I had to force a shutdown. Again, ugly barcode on top after I rebooted... but this time I have been trying since yesterday to get around it and do a system restore but to no avail - every single time I reboot, there's this black screen with those vertical color lines...........
Acer :: Memory Upgrade/Resolution Change - Aspire 3680
My brother just bought an Acer Aspire 3680.He purchased 1 gig of DDR2 Memory from Crucial. When we get to the desktop the screen is fine at first then the screen goes off and back on with 8 bit display. 512 DDR2 came in the machine. Crucial site said he could mix memory sizes. I tried it with the 1 gig stick by itself in case the mixed memory was the problem. Same thing..I've tried 2 sticks of 512...same thing. I've tried 2 sticks of 1 gig each..same problem. This laptop won't allow any upgrade at all. Will only run correctly with (1) 512 stick. I've never seen this problem before. I've installed many memory sticks in computers. This is a first for me. What could be causing this?? Any advice would be appreciated. BTW. the computer shows the upgrade amount of memory but the display color keeps changing to 8 Bit! I change it back to 32 and it reverts back after a few moments to 8 Bit. I went to Acer and installed an updated driver for the Intel Graphics card thinking the driver would help. I haven't installed a bios update yet. Called Acer and they said to return it for repair.
HP/Compaq :: Tx2000- After Restoration FromDiscs, Fingerprint And Memory Card Reader Not Detected
I have an HP Pavilion tx2000...
About a week ago I had to do a full restore from the restoration discs HP had sent me, something was causing Windows Explorer to be incredibly unstable and I couldnt even make a set of backup discs...
BUT thats not the problem, after the installation, I realized that my laptop no longer detects the built it fingerprint reader and memory card slots... I figured, ok maybe I just need to go back and manually install the drivers... So I did from the HP website and still nothing worked... So I contacted HP support and naturally they gave me the links to the exact same pages I got the drivers off of, then they had me update my BIOS... still nothing... then they had me reinstall my fingerprint reader software... Still nothing... So then they told me to just send it into them under warrenty to have it fixed, except I'm a full time student and I depend on my laptop.

Dell :: Inspiron 9300 No Brightness Control/white Screen At Bootup After Graphics Card Change
I have Inspiron 9300. Unfortunately, my geforce 6800 died and I bought as a replacement x300 which was installed by a laptop repair service (they fixed other thins too.
It was due to power surge). Everything works but when I boot up the computer or when the display is set to be turned off in the power settings in Windows instead of being actually turned off the display is on and is all white.
Also brightness regulation does not work via Fn +arrows keys and is set to maximum and the white color is so intense that I get a headache after a couple of hours staring at the screen.

Acer :: Memory Card Reader Doesn't Work
My memory card reader was fine, however after reinstalling Vista Ultimate it won't work.
It shows up as "Texas Instruments PCIxx21 Integrated FlashMedia Controller" in Device Manager. However I've tried multiple SD cards and it just won't recognize that anything has been inserted. The computer doesn't pause or show any indication that it's doing something when I insert a memory card.
I have a Ferrari 4006WLMi with Windows Vista Ultimate.
I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers several times already. I have also upgraded to the latest BIOS
I need to use a 4GB SDHC card as RAM via Readyboost...
Sony :: SZ Memory Card Reader VGP-MCA20 Can't Read My SD Cards
Whenever I insert an SD card or Sony Memory Stick in the memory card reader (VGP-MCA20) of my SZ, the computer doesn't recognize it. If I double click on the removable drive, it hangs the computer. I tried 16MB and 512MB SD Cards and 16MB Sony Memory Stick. All of them don't work. I tried them with my FW notebook and they work fine. So, it is not the media problem.
I tried to restore from Recovery DVD with Windows XP, install with Windows Vista and I still have the same problem.

I tried a search and couldn't find the answer. Does anybody know why the size of the mini screen changed from 10.2 to 10.1, the resolution dropped slightly because of that too. I bought one in November with the 10.2 and they are sending a replacement with the 10.1, any reason to just keep the 10.2 and repair it.

Apple :: Original Leopard Trash Can Icon
My problem is after using Candybar, I somehow got rid of the original trash can icon, and it was replaced with something else. I like the original wire mesh one. Is there anywhere I can download the original one? Or if someone can email me their trashempty.png and trashfull.png files. I'm new to OS X.
Dell :: Bluetooth Icon In Control Panel Missing
This is on an M6400 with Windows 7 64-bit. I installed dell's newest drivers for Windows 7 64-bit, and everything seems to be working fine, but I don't have the Bluetooth item in Control Panel. That becomes an issue if I turn the Bluetooth radio off from the tray icon, because if I do so, the tray icon is gone, and there's no easy way to turn the radio back on.
So, does anybody know how to fix this?
Dell :: Accidentally Disabled The Quickset Tray Icon
I just got my new Studio XPS 16, but accidentally disabled the quickset tray icon. I've checked registry and tried reinstalling quickset, but nothing i do can get it back. Is there any other way to do it without having to reinstall my whole computer? (as i've already installed several other programs, it'll be quite some effort).
Acer :: Missing Brightness Icon / Launch Manager
I bought my Acer 3810TG a month ago with Vista pre-installed and recently upgraded to Windows 7. The only problem now is that the brightness icon has disappeared (when I press Fn+left/right arrows), every other icon is working fine though.
Anyway when I looked in the Launch Manager folder, there's a folder called OSDRC with pictures of the icons, where I noticed the brightness icons were missing.
I've tried reinstalling Vista, sent it back to Acer, installing the newest/previous versions of Acer Launch Manager but neither helped.
Is it possible that someone whose brightness icons are working can upload them here or have another solution to get them back?
HP/Compaq :: HP Pavilion DV5
I have a Pavilion dv5-1203ax with AMD Turion X2 and ATi Mbility Radeon HD 3450.
I have a strange issue.. the system stops charging the battery at anytime...sometimes it charges the battery properly and other time it stops at 40 % , 50 % , 90 % etc.
The battery charges to 100 % normally when Windows is off and power suply is left on...
I changed the battery but the problem still exists
While the battery charges... HP Battery Check show Good when it does not, the battery check shows Replace...
I've formatted the system and tried Vista twice and Windows 7 also and recaliberated the battery but to no success...
Is it the motherboard...
HP/Compaq :: HP Pavilion Dv2
I'm currently looking into buying a new ultraportable laptop or netbook and this notebook looks like it fits my needs perfectly. My old 15.4" laptop is starting to show it's age and is becoming a pain to lug around campus all day. Plus the battery life is starting to decrease to under 1:30 hours..
Is there any word when this notebook will be available? I read that it's going to be sometime this month. How much will it be with the external DVD or Blu-ray drive? And are there going to be any other battery options other than the standard 4-cell? I'm probably only willing to purchase this notebook if it gets 4-5+ hours of battery life.. so how long do you think it will last?

T6600 processor, 1GB ATI 4650 graphics card, 4gb DDr3 RAM, 500gb SATA, 15.6" display.
I had earlier decided on the dell studio 15 but i found the hp with better config.
Sony :: System Tray Icon Distorting Switching GPU- Z Series
if everyone else has this problem or there is something corrupt with my windows?
When I switch the graphics to Speed or back to Stamina my system tray icons get bigger and look distorted. The only way to get them back to normal is to go into the appearance settings and set the icons for another size, it will make them small again regardless of what size i make them.
I should add that playing with the captions dropdown item in Advanced personalization just distorts them to a horrible mess.
Apple :: Adium Only Showing Blue/Green Buddy Icon
I have the latest version of Adium download on my new Macbook Pro but for some reason my Display Picture Icon only shows the Blue/Green MSN Buddy on the other end of the party.

Anyone else have this problem or know how to resolve it? I use MSN Messenger.
Dell :: Memory Speed Affecting Windows Experience (memory Operations)
A friend just showed me his new Dell Vostro lappy. He has 4 GB of DDR2 800mhz memory on it when compared to my 4 GB of DDR2 667mhz memory on my XPS 1530
However, under his windows experience score - he gets 5.9 score for memory operations while I just get a 5.1. I can't believe that a couple of hundred mhz can result in such a drastic difference.
Is there something optimized for his system but not for mine?

HP/Compaq :: Pavilion DV5- Cooling
despite the fact that it can only use 3 of its 4 gigs of RAM, I still love my new DV5.
There's only one, tiny kink...
It's getting hot. Very hot. My hands aren't burning, but I can feel the heat in my palms.
Core 0: Average temperature's around 47C
Core 1: Avg. Temp. is 49C
GPU: Here's the real problem. IT'S ON FREAKING 54C!!!
These temperatures are bloody DANGEROUS. And I'm going to be using this for gaming.
