HP/Compaq :: -1170us- Proper Defrag

Apr 9, 2009

i'm on a dv7-1170us. it's new as of a couple weeks or so. i haven't defragged a computer in several years. i've read numerous ways to do it, some which don't necessarily work, also people that say after a defrag the computer will have taken of several GB of space. i'd obviously like to do it without that.

HP/Compaq :: Dv7-1170us: G Or N Wireless

Oct 2, 2009

i know nothing about the ins and outs of wireless connection. i picked up a linksys wrt54g when i got my first laptop around 4 years ago. it was plug and play for the most part as i remember it and it's given me no issues. i've only started reading into an upgrade as i've heard the N (looking into the WRT160N) can give much more impressive transfer rates. just wanted to know if the 1170us has both options built in, and if not, what i'd need to accomplish an N connection.

HP/Compaq :: Dv7-1170us- How Do You Keep Clean

Apr 10, 2009

i purchased a dv7-1170us about a week ago. love it a lot, would like to preserve its looks more than my prior dated black lenovo i beat around. the machine looks great brand new but is a definite smudge magnet. do any of you that really baby your gear use anything special? i'm planning on ordering some monster screen cleaner and keyboard cleaner by a company called 3m, unless you have better screen/key ideas. i'm sure it's well covered but don't see much about what everyone uses on the other surface areas, the top, trackpad, speaker area. anything special? old t shirt and water?

HP G62 234DX Notebook Lockups :: Can`t Defrag C Drive

Aug 6, 2014

I am running Windows 7 on the G62-234DX Notebook. I cannot defrag the C drive. I can defrag my other drives however it takes 10 hours to complete. I performed a disk cleanup on the C Drive. Please note that the defrags I can perform are done by me and not by a schedule. The scheduler is not working either.
 
I have only one Antivirus software program on the notebook and I have recently removed many programs from launching at startup.

Dell :: Is Vista's Defrag Tool RAID 0 Compatible

May 4, 2008

I'm going RAID 0 with my new 1730, and will be going 2 X 160GB in RAID 0.

The question is will windows defrag tool, know how to properly handle the 1/2 and 1/2 file fragments on both drives?

I would assume that it would, by simply moving a fragment and it's assosiated 1/2 on the other drive to the same spot on both disks? Or would it not?

If it's not, what defrag tools are RAID 0 compatible?

A serious question when you consider VISTA's "advanced" or more correctly "complicated" page/swap file use and RAID 0. The way I see it, is under defragmentation a raid configuration could be realy hurt by fragmentation as you effectively double the normal rate of fragmentation in a RAID configuration.

Lenovo T430 T400 / T500 :: Defrag HDD Between SSD Upgrading?

Jul 1, 2014

I am in the process of changing from a Crucial 256GB M4 SATA SSD to a Crucial 240GB M500 SSD. (I'm unable to upgrade the M4 firmware as laptop has UEFI BIOS). I have imaged the M4 to an HDD and find that the C: partition is 12% defragmented and the recovery partition Q: is 99% defragmented. I have a Lenovo T430s laptop running Windows 7 Professional. Should I defrag both partitions before installing the new SSD, or not bother? Also the Q partition had only 2GB free on the M4. Should I increase this when I change to the M500?

Dell :: Proper Battery Care/Usage

Sep 28, 2009

I'm hoping to prolong the battery usage for my 6 cell for XPS 16 . Are there any tips I could use ?

1) Do I need to remove the battery once it's fully charged when I'm running on AC ? Some say leave it there, some say remove it, does it matter?

2) Also, can i not use my battery below 40% and recharging it back often as it will deter the battery life cycle ? meaning i should always keep it above 40%?

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Cannot Do Upgrade Without Proper Heatsink

Mar 12, 2010

I've purchased a new (refurbished) 1545 motherboard H314N with ATI Radeon onboard video for my son's laptop. I will install, but first I need to find the proper heatsink, as the boards do not come with the component.  I cannot find the heatsink, let alone a part number. does Dell sell these to consumers direct? since I cannot do the upgrade without the proper heatsink.  It is not part number M274K...that is for Intel graphics.

Dell :: Proper Part Number For 130 Or 150 Watt Power Supply

Nov 3, 2007

I've recently upgraded to a Quadro 2500m in my 9400. Sometimes after playing games for awhile it will freeze up for a second and then get really slow (sometimes staircase like lines will appear on the monitor). I doubt the 2500m is broken since it came in a sealed Dell box and my temps aren't too high, so I'm suspecting that the 130W adapter that I got off of eBay is not really up to it. I noticed that sometimes when it boots up it cannot recognize the adapter (Press F1 to continue, F2 for setup etc...) but other times it recognizes it as the 130W adapter fine.

I also noticed that that PA-13 that I have was made in 2004...isn't that way before any of the Inspiron 9400s came out?

So I'm wondering if anyone knows where to get a reputable 130/150W adapter and/or what the part numbers are that people have been using successfully.

Dell Inspiron N5110 :: Reboot And Select Proper Boot Device

Mar 3, 2013

I have an Inspiron N5110, service tag 84J4GR1. Last month, just after the warranty expired, the hard drive failed a test and I ordered  a replacement Seagate drive.

I have also run the Diagnostics facility which say that all device working including replacement hard drive. How to get the machine to boot up?

Dell Precision M4800 :: Slow Performance Without Proper Power Adapter After BIOS A8 Update?

Sep 19, 2014

I recently updated my Dell m4800 to BIOS A8 with Windows 7 64. I had been using a collection of older power adapters from my previous Dell m4400 without any issues. After the update, wow. A huge performance hit if I do not have the 19.5 volt and 9.23 amp adapter connected.

The m4400 power adapter is 19.5 volt and 6.7 amp. Pretty close right? Not any more.

I do have it connected to a Dell docking station almost all the time. Just checked. They are both 6.7 amp.

What changed in BIOS A8 and what the deal is with the performance? Looks like I need to request a new docking station, but I'm not sure IT will believe my story.

HP/Compaq :: How To OC This CPU

Oct 21, 2009

Does anyone have a good way to OC this laptop other than using ClockGen? I am basically wondering if there is a BIOS option. I know there are some OC guides out there, but this laptop is almost 3 years old, and as far as I can tell does not have an option in the BIOS. Also, my proc is the T2600, not the one is this review, but other than that exactly the same. I am looking to play around with this because it is old and I dont care too much if I fry it since my new hotness is on the way.

HP/Compaq :: Looking For New OS

Jun 30, 2009

Ive just about had it with Vista on my laptop and want to try a new OS before I junk this thing. Is anyone running Win7 or Ubuntu on a HP DV5z AMD 64 bit laptop? The machine is about a year old and I have 4gb of RAM and the thing is a dog. Ive used Ubuntu in the past on Dell laptops and its a pain to get everything running wireless drivers, flash, etc. Win7 being a RC may or may not have everything up to speed on for my machine.

So, if you have Win7 or Ubuntu on a HP DV5z please give me a shout, good or bad.

Can't really see much difference in these models....looking at Best Buy

Other than 17 vs 16 inch screen are their any benefits to build quality from 1 to the other?

I will be travelling so I would prefer the lesser HDX 16 incher but build quality is a concern

I travel by plane, train, bus every weekend so it needs to be able to handle a little beating
