HP Chromebook 11 Model CB2 Purchased June 2014 Problems with charging for about half of that time. It has always been difficult plugging in the charger and is no longer possible due to visible damage of the charging port.
I have a new hp chromebook 14 purchased from hp six weeks ago. I have only had to charge it a few times but each time i plug in the charger and put my finger on the touchpad the arrow/pointer jitters around the screen randomly.
I have resorted to using a usb wireless mouse when charging and this does not suffer the same problem. Should i contact hp as i have a three year warranty.
Has anyone actually seen the usb charging port work? I had one on my e4200 and one on my e6400 and it never works. I have the laptop plugged in and turned off or in sleep mode. Plug my iphone into it and it doesn't charge... Even through it is all active and setup in the bios.
Chrombook 14 has crashed, and I have installed the "Recovery" about 15 times as it kept crashing.I uninstalled all extensions and apps that weren't google apps after the 3rd or 4th crash.
Finally it crashed and the "Recovery" will not restore the computer... in any USB port. Have tried a couple dozen times and have even created a new recovery on another pen drive.

HP 14 Chromebook product # F0H08UA keyboard doesn't work for the numeric keys 1 through 4 and 7 through 0. Particullary unhandy as I use some of these numbers for my password. Problem started 7/15/14. Worked as expected in the AM but now do not register this PM. The On Screen entry method works but not the keyboard! All other keyboard keys seem to work as expected. No error messages and no recent changes made to this Chromebook 14.
I have an HP Chromebook 14. Two issues, one the mouse arrow has disappeared while using the touch pad. The cursor (arrow) reappears when I plug in a wireless mouse. Second I have seen where it says to hit the Esc+Refresh+Power and this might regain the mouse cursor. Where or what the "Refresh Button is".
I have a Dell Inspiron 9400 with a rev0 7900gs Go, and I recently flashed it with the 7900GTX bios (790GTXUN.ROM) and followed the info given on post 1 here: [url]
The clocks for this BIOS were set at 500/600 by default, but I went ahead and clocked them up to 530/630, then eventually up to 575/700. I am running ATi Tool 0.27b2 and ran the artifact test, it ran for about 10 minutes and then some artifacts started to show at about 93c. As soon as they started coming up, I canceled the artifact test then rebooted, and re flashed back to the original 7900GS BIOS. I have been playing WoW for the last 30mins and it has been running fine but I am worried that I may have damaged my card, would anyone please be able to tell me what you think or what could have caused the artifacting?
Today at the end of school I took my notebook (Sony Vaio SR) out of my bag (special notebook bag) and got it out of stand by. I noticed that there were vertical lines on exactly the left half of the screen.
The lines are separated exactly equal and the color changes when images are moved. They are not of a certain color, perhaps a bit brown .....
At last the day came.. after almost a month of waiting i got my new Z540 - very stylish and nice machine.. but unfortantly i noticed the top-panel (keyboard) seemed un-attached to the buttom.. see the pics:
I sent my 8510p laptop in to HP to fix a video problem and they replaced the video board, sent it back to me. When I got it back it was very clear that there was still a problem, the video signal intermittently clouded up like there was a disconnect in the cable - I figured the tech didn't press the connector cable firmly into place. I sent it back for the 2nd time.
I got the laptop back and all my video problems were fixed; however, there was now a 2 to 3 inch long crack around one of the screws on the bottom of the case - like someone took a chisel or a screwdriver to pry up at the case. I told customer service and they sent a box for me to pack it up and send it back. This is the 3rd week in a row without my computer at home - it's starting to cause major problems because I need my computer to study.
I get a call back this last Friday from billing at HP telling me they aren't going to fix the case unless I pay them $200 even though it's very clear that the crack was caused by an incompetent tech trying to get into the unit. There was no damage to the shipping box and this kind of crack simply could not have happened during shipping - HP also tells me that because I got it late Thursday and didn't report it til Sunday morning, that I can't be covered for shipping damage (even though there was no shipping damage). They want $89 to send it back to me unfixed too.
I told them I wouldn't pay them anything for damage they caused - I left a message on the voicemail of the billing department supervisor...............
Anyway...when I took it out of the box, it has a fairly large, very noticeable black scratch on the LCD. Has anybody else experienced this? I've called dell and they are sending a tech out to replace it. Question:
I have an older Inspiron 6400 (looks like the 1505) that isn't charging the battery. The bios indicates that the battery is charging, and that it is performing normally. There isn't a red flashing battery indicator, but when the laptop is powered on there isn't any "green light" indication of the battery, either. The AC adapter performs normally ( Charger is a PA10 (90watt) and it works fine on my D800, and charges that battery normally).
What I don't understand is why the BIOS indicates the battery is charging and that the battery is performing normally. However, when I have the system up and running there isn't a green battery indicator light on the button strip. Let me clarify that statement. During the initial boot phase of start-up there is the green indicator light on the button strip, but as the OS finishes loading this light goes out and the battery doesn't charge.
Could this be caused by a faulty Bios update, or is it something with the battery charging circuit of the motherboard? The laptop operates normally when using the AC adapter, just no indication of the battery charging when the OS is fully loaded. OS is Windows XP Pro (SP3).
Thinking about getting one to go with my m4500 which is on order. Reviews seem ok though some complain it's bulky and other complained the release mechanism wasn't great. Worst was that someone said their comp wouldn't boot when docked.
Can anyone share experience and/or high res pics of what one looks like?
My Laptop is 1 year and 5 months old. There are 2 problems I am facing with my battery:
1) When it is charging, at around 86% level, it stops charging and I see an orange light blinking at the battery icon and it continues to blink unless I turn the power off and allow the battery to discharge for a while.
2) at around 45% to 50% level, the battery level suddenly drops to 7% level and then I have to charge again.
Because of these issues I now use my laptop as a desktop. It is always plugged in and I use the option of "Stop Charging" in the windows power settings. how to solve the problem.
I have had my Dell Inspiron 1525 for around two years. For the past month, when my power supply is plugged in, the battery does not charge. It has been stuck on 3% and will automatically shut down when unplugged.
I have seen that this is a very common problem, however, when hovering over the battery icon it says: plugged in, CHARGING, where as all of the other posts that I have seen say: plugged in, NOT charging.
I have tried taking the battery out and restarting but this did not work. I also drained my battery and tried to recharge but again, this did not work. My initial thought is that I may need a new battery but I just wanted to check first.
I recently did a clean install of Windows 7 RC over Vista on my inspiron 1520. Windows 7 appeared to automatically install the correct drivers for everything
except the graphics card, as everything else appeared to be working properly (e.g. wireless, scrollpad, etc.) After manually downloading and installing the NVidia driver, the aero stuff started to work.
However shortly afterwards, I noticed that the left side of my screen seemed slightly dimmer than the rest of the screen. The problem gets even worse, as the backlight would suddenly turn off after shorter and shorter periods.
I thought maybe the windows 7 drivers were incompatible with my the laptop, so I uninstalled windows 7 and installed Vista back along with the original drivers, but that didn't fix the problem .....
I have a Dell XPS M2010 which i love....but recently my video card was somehow damaged and as i have warranty i called the technical support on 20th march(friday) nd they said they were gona send me a engineer on tuesday if not they were gona call me nd tell me.... but i did not receive anycall so i took a day off and waited but no1 came. so i called them later that day and they sed they don hav the part so i will have to wait a bit longer for the part and they will let me kno with updates...but i still haven't heard from dem yet nd its my final weeks in uni nd i really need my laptop...they sent me an email sayin that the parts shud arrive by "mid-February" i don kno were febr came from.
I have a Dell Latitude D600 that came with a 60gb hard drive. I had a D600 previous to this one with a 40gb hard drive and I swapped this hard drive into the newer D600 since I had all my important data stored on it already.
Just the other day when I was performing some maintenance on the D600,
I accidentally dropped the 40gb on the floor when it was out of the computer. I thought everything was fine because it seemed to boot up when
I re-installed it, but I hadn't actually tried using it until today
Our HDD has been damaged and lost everything. No matter because I have a backup of files, but I lost my Windows 7 recovery partition.
I have 5 Computers of this model exactly . Is it possible to create recovery disks from any HP application (from a good HP620 model) ? Is it possible to create a recovery partition from one of our HP620 ??
In HP630 there is an application called Recovery Manager,, but not in HP620 .
