Not sure how to check / fault find the built-in Bluetooth on my Studio 1558. I installed a Logitech Bluetooth mouse on it about two months ago, and mostly it works well. But this afternoon there is suddenly no response to the mouse. (It worked this morning.) It seems that the laptop's Bluetooth has disconnected for some reason - doing a Bluetooth search with my cellphone picks up the mouse but not the laptop. I've put new batteries in the mouse, made sure it's switched on, clicked it's Connect switch. I also rebooted the computer. I've tried the F2 comms on/off function key. None of this worked. The built-in broadband comms is working fine.
I bought a used 5315 off ebay. It turned out to have a bad hard drive but I was able to save the pqservice partition and clone it to another drive. I successfully performed a restore and it is up and running. Just for future reference, I would like the service manual for this model but can't find it here.
I have installed the one key recovery driver , but don know why it's not functioning~after i press the one key recovery button, it shows "the program can not find the service partition, this function is currently unavailable" instead of asking me to reboot into the system recovery environment.
How to install the window correctly so that i wont lost the one key recovery function
I have Dell inspiron 7520SE laptop which has two configurations with mSATA connection and preinstalled mSATA card and without mSATA connection. Mine is without preinstalled mSATA card, but I found in bios
mSATA Device : [Not detected]
So does that mean my laptop supports mSATA (but it is empty) or this is just some error, and is there a way to check if my laptop has support for mSATA withou pulling it apart ?
I was wondering how can i check battery health on my SZ4?
On my other laptop (IBM T42) there is a factory utility, it shows date of manufacturing of this particalar battery, how many times it was recharged, full factory capacity, and current battery capacity. I cannot find this information on my Vaio laptop.
According to [URL] ..., Dell M4300 laptop bought several years ago might include Flash Cache Module. Dell BIOS allows to enable FCM. Is there a way to check whether the module is actually installed w/o physically opening up the laptop? What part number or name might it have in System Configuration on Dell Support web-site? It shows that the laptop was shipped with 200GB SATA HDD (part no WT611 - [URL] ...., but there are no components listed with "FCM" or "flash" in their names.
looking at the configurations of MacBooks offered on Apple's site -- specifically, the aluminum models. The two offered on the linked page differ in terms of processor (2.0 vs 2.4 GHz Core 2 Duo) ---- do you think she'd be well-advised to take one over the other?
I'm not sure that the $250 price tag is worth the increase (and yes, I know the default HD goes up to 250 gigs on the 2.4 ghz model, and that model also has the backlit keyboard).
just planning on using the computer for basic computing stuff --- internet, word processing, the occasional presentation that incorporates video clips. She doesn't have any immediate plans to do any video editing or anything else that's super intensive (I assume the basic 2 Gigs of RAM would be sufficient for this as well -- correct?).
Is there some way to quickly change the configuration of the touchpad? My wife and I use the same computer but don't like each others setup. I would be nice if there were some way to easily switch from one configuration to the other.
Been having mini wars in my mind pitting HP Envy 15 vs MacBook Pro vs Sony Z. Right now Sony Z's got the edge and my interest, and so these questions:
1. I'm interested in getting the Z with the 512GB SSD. Is ordering this configuration only possible via Sony's site?
At first I thought that to be the case, but then I saw in the several hundred page Sony Z thread, links to Jr.com and Amazon.com where they have the Z on sale in various configurations, but no 512GB SSD .....
I forgot the bios password and i need to enter to the bios menu to change some configurations.my laptop is an HP Pavilion dv4 4172lathe OS is windows 7 64the code appeared is: 62023458. How can i reset the password?
I am not able to find the Wifidrivers for my Laptop HP 15 r0006tx, I am using windows 7 64-bit OS. I have installed the Network driver which has enabled the LAN but not able to see Wifi connection icon in system tray. The Wifi led on the wifi button on my keypad is always on as soon as start.
Also I am not able to adjust the brighteness which is in the special function keys with F2 and F3. share the required drivers to adjust the same.
I just purchased my first laptop and my first wireless router and have been setting them up.
Laptop: HP touchscreen Pavilion 15 notebook 15-n088ca with windows 8.1 (fully updated)
Router: D-Link Dual Band AC1000 2.5GHz & 5GHz bands DIR-810L
I set up the router and worked out the kinks and updated the software. My laptop finds and connects with the 2.5GHz Band anywhere in the house. My laptop does not even find or see the 5GHz Band. However my Galaxy Tablet finds both bands and can connect with both, thought the 5GHz seems weaker.
I noticed that my Galaxy Tablet finds a lot more wi fi networks than my laptop (that are in houses around the street). I believe my laptop should find the 5Ghz Band and be able to connect. So I'm hoping this is a software or driver issue, and just a setting that needs to be adjusted. I don't know much about Wi Fi drivers, but I"m a Vista survivor, so I should be able to solve this.
I don't even know what program runs the WiFi software on my laptop? Or where to find it?
I have a HP Pavilion dv6-6154tx laptop. My current version of BIOS installed is Hewlett-Packard F.1B, 05/10/11.I wanted to check if my BIOS is up to date, and if there was a newer version of BIOS available.
So I went to the HP Support page for laptops (URL...) and chose Pavilion Notebooks > Models dv4000 to dv6999 > dv6000 Entertainment Notebook PC series > Matching products outside the United States.
But alas, I could not find my laptop's model listed there. There's dv6150tx and then it jumps to dv6161ea, but no dv6154tx. Is there any other way I can update my laptop's BIOS?
