HP/Compaq :: HP Pavillion Dv6040 Startup Fail, 1 Long 2 Short Beeps. Probably Video Card

Oct 11, 2009

I have an HP Pavillion dv6040 laptop, 3 years old. Today, after 3 years of nearly flawless operation, it will not start. It gives 1 long and 2 short beeps, and then nothing. The lights turn on, the fans run, but the screen remains off (black with the backlight off).

I believe it is a video problem (looked up the beeps online). The laptop has an Nvidia GeForce 7200 Graphics card.

Or does anyone know if it's possible to replace the video card in such a laptop?

Apple :: 10.5.7 Updatehow Long

Jul 13, 2009

Ive update a Macbook from 10.5.6 to 10.5.7, but after the initial download (around 250Mb I think) and reboot, ive been looking at a progress bar of 3% for what seems like ages....maybe an hour at this stage.

How long should this normally take, im not a native OSX user? Im tempted to do a hard-reboot but am I being too impatient? Also, am I looking at a borked machine if I do a hard reboot, or does Mac OS have the same kind of safety features as Windows (ie Restore point)?

Apple :: MBP - Prolong My Batteries Lifespan As Long As Possible

Aug 8, 2009

Now that I've got a new MBP with an awesome 7-hour battery, I want to prolong my batteries lifespan as long as possible (especially since it isn't user replaceable!).

According to this thread: Notebook Battery Guide

I should never fully discharge my battery to 0%. Apple's battery calibration tips [url], on the other hand, tell me to discharge to the cutoff point, then leave computer in sleep for 5 or more hours. Won't this discharge the battery to 0%?

I'd like to think that Apple wouldn't tell me to do something that would harm its own product, but I just wanted to double check for sure.

Also, what level are you guys usually draining your batteries to before charging them? The battery thread says 10-20%.

Apple :: Long Load Time For Win7 - When Booting

Sep 28, 2009

If anyone experiencing long load times when booting up Windows 7? It takes considerably longer for me to boot Win7 than SL...

When Win7 boots, whether it be a cold boot or reboot, ill find myself hanging at a blank/black screen with nothing other than a blinking underscore in the top left corner for what seems like a minute, then it'll go to the normal "Starting Windows..." screen from there. Is a format/reinstall in order?

Apple :: Aluminum Macbook - Taking A Long Time To Go To Sleep

I got the new aluminum macbook 2.4ghz and it is taking a long time to go to sleep. I cant figure out what it is. I close my lid and the apple logo takes about 4 seconds until is shuts off and another 30 seconds until the light starts to fade in and out. I've shut the lid of another macbook at an apple shop and they go to sleep instantly.

Apple :: How Long-term Durable Is A MBP Relative To Other Business Class Laptops

Jan 9, 2010

How long-term durable is a MBP relative to other business class laptops like Thinkpads/Latitudes/Elitebooks?

I'm concerned that Apple's extremely short definition of (planned) obsolescence might be reflected in their product design and manufacturing... I mean, it's not uncommon to expect to get 5 years of use out of a Thinkpad, but I think I'd get weird stares if I told people I expected to use an MBP for 5 years

Apple :: Bootcamp - 60 Seconds Pause On Boot - Black Screen White Cursor

Aug 14, 2009

Just installed Visa 64 , everything went fine , but every time i boot into Vista i get a black screen with a white cursor in the top left have corner flashing very fast and it does this for almost 60 seconds and then Vista boots normally.

I have tried unplugging everything from my Mac , but i still get the same problem.

It looks like Vista is wating for something then it gives up, I have not installed any software only the bootcamp driver.

Anybody know what is wrong, I had Xp on previously and did not have this problem on fat32 , Vista only works on NTFC if that makes a difference.

Jan 28, 2009

I was bought a Studio 17 by my Dad [which i love apart from a couple of fault -going to be fixed though ] but he also bought me the Targus Laptop Courier bag for 20.00.

I dont want or need this though, but he didn't realise that of course, an now i want to send it back for a refund without having to pay delivery & restocking?

but I am understanding that I can send back the bag no questions and have a full refund as long as it's before 7 days? that is in 2 days time.

Dell :: M4400 SSD Windows XP 64 Bit Installation Procedure

May 13, 2009

I have just ordered my M4400 with an 128gb ssd disk. I already have official windows XP 64 bit so i didn't order an operating system. My question is as follows:

1. with the SSD disk will i be able to install windows on my own? Am i going to need an extra driver like with the SATA drives?

2. if yes how will i be able to load it during the install? will i need nlite or similar software to create a windows installation cd?

3. Has anybody done it and knows the actual procedure? any other recomendations for the installation? Are there any tricks apart from installing the drivers in the order mentioned in the dell site?

4. Finally can i partition the SSD disk through the windows setup like with normal HDs?

Dell :: Procedure To Replace A Hard Disk And Install Vista

Jul 6, 2009

I have a 2.5 year-old Dell Inspiron 640M (the US model number might be different). I had originally purchased it for writing e-mails. Over the past 2 months, I have been using it for heavy work loads such as financial modelling.

My typical use is :
2-3 large spreadsheets open
4-5 PDFs open
8 tabs of web pages on CHROME
VLC to play music in the background.
Access + VBA editor.

Although I have 2 Gb and a 1.66GHz processor (T5500), I find the HDD LeD blinking all the time and I have to really wait for the OS to refresh the screen .....

Apple :: Random Startup/shutdown - MBP

Jan 26, 2009

Sometimes the laptop when started wont go past the blue screens. Also sometimes it wont turnoff. I suspect it might be because of usb devices, but even still i get the problem. It's really annoying because MBP is supposed to be a flawless device.

Apple :: Macbook Pro - Blank Screen On Startup

Oct 3, 2009

I've got a late 07 macbook pro with those faulty 8600 nvidia gpus. My macbook pro was working fine last night and now this afternoon its got a blank screen upon startup. I can still hear the chime and it still boots into the OS as i can still change the volume and backlit brightness etc.... Is it confirmed to say that my luck has ran out and the GPU is dead?

My warranty has expired and have no extended applecare + I bought the macbook in one of those education apple store. Will I still be able to get the free repairs as stated by apple and even if I do, won't they still replace the logic board with another unused faulty one and down the track my macbook pro will still be prone to that same failure?

Apple :: Startup Time At First Boot Of The Day Or After >6hrs S/d

Mar 21, 2009

I have bought a MB alu 2.0GHz + 2Gb RAM DDR3 and I have noted that sometimes the boot time is longer in the morning or after a long s/d (more than 6hrs for instance) than after a 2-3 hrs s/d. Indeed the cold startup takes around 43-45sec whilst the 'warm' start may take about 32-35sec. Does this happen to you too?

2nd question: what do you think about ONYX? Is it worth making this automation or it is better to abandon these pc-attitudes on a mac?

Apple :: Prolonged Blue Screen On Startup -Aluminum MBP 2.53 GHz

May 14, 2009

I've had my MBP since 1 week now, and I've been using it a lot. At first, the startup time was around 35 seconds, but recently I have noticed that the blue screen at the end of the startup process is staying for much longer than it should (around 8 seconds).

I have tried:

-Repairing Disk with the Disk Utility and the Leopard DVD
-Repairing Permissions
-Defragmenting (3rd party software)
-Deleting the ApplicationEnhancement.bundle file using [command-S]
-Deleting preference files of uninstalled programs.

But nothing worked. The blue screen still lasts 8 seconds and the pointer appears at the top left corner. The startup time is now 50 seconds, which is about the same as Windows and I don't want that.

Sony :: The Vaio Startup Assistant Loads On Startup

Oct 8, 2009

When I first loaded up my Vaio the Startup Assistant booted by itself and I unchecked the box to stop booting on startup. After the while the Startup Assistant started booting up by itself even though the box is still unchecked. I thought by recovering to factory settings and unchecking the box would fix it but it has started booting up again.

how I can get rid of the Vaio software?

Apple :: Macbook Dropped - Won't Get Past Grey Startup Screen

Dec 16, 2009

So my wife just got a brand new macbook about a week ago, but accidentally dropped it about a foot or two this morning. The "case" which we got from macmall did practically nothing, and I think one corner of the macbook took the brunt of it.

Now, the macbook won't get past the grey startup screen. I'll see the mac symbol, and then a "no entry" (circle with a diagonal line through it) sign, and then the system will just hang.

I've used the Mac OS X install dvd to use Disk Utility to try to repair the hard drive, but Disk Utility didn't find any problems. Everything was green and good to go.

I'm running the Hardware Test now, but I was wondering if anyone here would have any ideas about what to do next, or what is causing this problem?

Update 1: The hardware test said everything was fine, too.

Update 2: It can boot in safe mode! Everything looks good from the safe boot, I've got access to all the files and everything..........................

Apple :: Full Startup Disk Errors With 40GB Free

Feb 4, 2009

my 4 month old MBP keeps kicking out errors saying that my startup disk is almost full even though I have something like 40GB free. Windows partition works perfectly fine in boot camp. I've run Disk Utility's verify disk and permissions options with no errors and I was able to repair disk permissions just fine. The bootup hardware diagnostic tool with the OS X disk runs fine too. Onyx runs its cleanup functions fine, but I still get the error every now and again.

Obviously I have performed a backup and will likely make a trip to the Apple Store but has anyone encountered something like this? All signs point to software issues, but I'm still a little worried.
