I just bought a new dv6 on black friday from staples, the dv6-1334 with a t4300/4gb ram.
Is anyone having trouble inserting their remote control into the slot on the left side of the laptop? My remote won't really fit...i can get it about 90% of the way in, but when i push to click it in/click it out, its like its stuck with sticky goo or something, it goes in really slowly to lock in place and comes out really slowly when i click it out of place.
Other than the media remote control issue, I'm liking this ALOT more than my tx2500 tablet with better cpu and graphics/video card.
Im after a remote control for my studio 17, but im not sure where i should look! Iv tried searching for similar threads but didn't come across many so decided to ask here. ZDFDSFSF Iv found this one on ebay, but it doesn't recharge from the slot. Are there any versions which do? if not how long does the battery last? and finally, will that remote be suitable for my 1737
I have formatted the hard drive and installed Vista Ultimate and all of the drivers including Media Direct and Quickset. DSFDSFDSF But, the remote control no longer works. DSFSDDF It worked before with the OEM software. DFDSFDSF There are no bangs in the device manager so I can't imagine I am missing a driver.
None of the Vaio notebooks have IR Remote Control which I feel is very useful and has become standard since long in notebooks of other manufacturers, still I have not found anyone complaining about it in this forum. Does no one here miss the lack of it in their Vaios?
When I first got my HP DV7-1285dx with Vista (64) the remote control that came with it was working fine. I upgraded to the Windows 7 beta when it came out (I didn't do a clean install) and the remote was still working and kept working throughout the several beta upgrades I did later (to newer beta versions). However when the Windows 7 RC was released earlier this week I decided to do a clean install so I backed up the important drivers and files and did a clean Windows 7 install. After that my HP remote simply stopped working, the laptop won't respond to it at all (not in Media Center and not in anything else). I was able to reinstall all the drivers (from the backup) except for one which shows as "Unknown driver" in Device Manager, and when I do a driver update and point Windows to the folder including my backed up drivers, it does recognize the device as the "HP Mobile Data Protection Sensor" but says it encountered an error installing the driver software since it "couldn't find the file specified."
I don't know if this "Unknown driver" is in anyway connected to the Remote Control problem. I have no other problems showing in device manager by the way.
Also in an unrelated matter, I am trying to reinstall the MediaSmart software the came with the laptop. I downloaded the packages from the HP website but they won't install (since they're only update packages and not standalone installers I guess) so is there any way to reinstall the MediaSmart software from the recovery discs/partition?
I contact you because I bought a Dell Studio 1735 a while ago and since I dont like Windows Vista I changed the OS to XP. Reading this forum I managed to make everything work, Wifi, TouchPad, Video, Sound which was a Sound Blaster Audigy not the one that comes in the Std Studio model and everything else BUT the remote control.
I installed the drivers for the IR port from [url]and it says the device is working properly, yet the remote is not functional.
Has anyone been able to make the device work under XP?
My friend's macbook (white plastic, 2.0, napa/core2 before santa rosa platform) isn't starting, and I have no idea why. He initially asked me to replace the top and bottom casing. I accepted, and ordered the parts. Around the time they were supposed to come, I took the computer apart completely (required for the repair), but one of the parts was delayed, so the computer sat splayed on my desk for a week. I didn't exactly stack textbooks on it, but it also wasn't covered in anti-static wrap. So, now, I finally got the part and put it back together, and the computer doesn't start. At all. The screen doesn't go grey, the 'sleep' light doesn't turn on, the fan doesn't start - nothing. The magsafe light is green, so the power is going in. It's also worth noting that I have no battery for it, so it's all on A/C.
Does anyone know what's wrong? My two hypothetical solutions are (a) I need a battery, or (b) the logic board is dead due to static.
How likely are each of these scenarios - especially the logic board one? How possible is it that it was static overloaded?
I have an aspire5734z laptop and can no longer control the volume with the Fn up arrow/down arrow buttons. Have no display of vol,wireless or cap lock any more. I've been through everything I can think of in control panel and can't find an answer.
Having issues with connecting to a Bluetooth speaker or headphones- the devices are technically paired (all icons and prompts say "connected") but the music still comes out thru the speakers. How I can get it to work- no other laptop I've had as had this problem?!
I just bought a new Acer E5 571 with Windows 8.1 The laptop paired to my bluetooth speaker quickly and with no problem.
However the next time I turned on my laptop it showed as bluetooth device paired when it wasn't. iTunes only played through the laptop speaker and I have to disconnect and re-pair the bluetooth and deactivate the laptop speaker to get iTunes to play through bluetooth every time.
Is this a recognised fault or some incompatibility between my laptop and LG bluetooth soundbar?
Just lookin' over the spec's on the new iphone and I noticed that the headphones now support volume control. I didn't see this fact listed before anywhere else or during the keynote... Its about time apple! The only major downside is that they are not enabling the feature on the 3G iphone. [url]
well last night and this morning i was busy making my self a home made cooling pad, with some crap laying around the house. I don't know if there is already one but i'll put this one up. I will upload pictures tomorrow. The total project was about 1 hour and cost less than $10. It also has a speed control which is cool (it is built on my ac/dc adapter so you will make yours). My mother-tongue is not English but French, so excuse the words i might use or not use. Also their are some tools i couldn't translate the name, but when pics are up I'm sure you will know..................
if anyone can recommend a firewall application that controls both the incoming and the outgoing traffic. The built in firewall protects from incoming request, but I'd like to control the outgoing connections as well. I did a search and found 1 thread, but it's more than a year old.
Little Snitch and WaterRoof (and its simpler version NoobProof) seem to fit the bill. Any recommendation besides these?
I erased the free space on my hard drive because it OS X claimed it was full even though it wasn't. I was forced to quit at the end while it was stalled at "Creating temporary file" for 3 hours. I restarted the computer and this was the result:
YouTube - MBP boot attempt
It boots to the login screen, gives me a warning that the hard drive is full, allows me to log in, but then doesn't load any icons, the dock, or the menu bar. Key commands like cmd-shift-Q still work to log out and stuff.it didn't switch from the login image (that graffiti thing) to my desktop background, which is a jungle cat of some sort, but the mouse cursor still works, as you can see in the video.
My MacBook Pro is behaving funny after wrestling with my wife. Unfortunately the laptop was on a table side when my wife jumped on me and we were wrestling away.
She got my arm and twisted it behind my back i was desparate to get out of the arm bar and neck choke she was applying on me. In desparation I got out of her dealy UFC choke but as a consequence I kicked the laptop off the table by accident.
The laptop flew a few metres and landed hard on the floor. As you could see, this is no way to treat the laptop. Now my laptop is behaving strangely the mouse doesn't respond as it used to.
i'm having a issue with my santa rosa mbp. I left for dinner and left my notebook on. Naturally the machine went to sleep. After i came back the machine would not boot up, the screen doesn't even turn on. The light on the latch release remains on. When i try a hard reboot, i'm having the same issue. Black screen, doesn't even get to the grey screen with the apple logo. I've tried going on 1 dimm or ram to see if it's a issue with the ram and still doesn't fix it.
