I have an HP Compaq nx7400. I've had it for over 3 years now. I've never changed its battery ever since I bought it.
Over the past few weeks, I've been having an unusual problem. Whenever I plug the AC adapter to my laptop, the whole laptop performance - from the second I switch it on - is very slow. The moment I pull the AC adapter from the laptop, it instantly operates at a normal and fast speed again!
I figured that it must have been a problem with the AC adapter (it's had its fair share of use - being swung around and dragged to lectures...). So I ordered another one off Ebay. Today, I got the new adapter and when I plugged it in, the laptop only went on AC power. It worked fine - fast as normal. However, it was not charging - just on AC power. I am starting to question if the adapter was really as "genuine" like it was advertised on eBay. But anyway... after about 4 hours with the new adapter on AC power, it stopped recognizing the battery altogether and alerted me with a Critical Battery sign. Of course, a few minutes later, it went dead on me - the laptop switched off. It was as if I removed the AC adapter myself, only I hadn't. Now, I am trying to plug it in again (the new one), to see if it will be able to power up again and it just won't respond at all.
On the other hand, when I put the old AC adapter, the laptop switches on but doesn't charge. Again, it is extremely slow with the adapter on, and fast when I pull the wire out. Only for a minute or so until it dies on me again...
I bought a new laptop HP Pavilion g7.I got Ralink RT3290 802.11bgn Wi-Fi Adapter but my problem is that I can only connect to 802.11 n network and I can not use 802.11 g wifi.When I trying to connect 802.11 g wifi it says limited can not download any webpage but I should use it with this Ralink 802.11 bgn adapter yes? I have already updated the Wifi adapter but didn't work I turned off every firewall and antivirus software and I have already writing by manually IP address ,subnet mask etc...I got window 8 software. what has windows 7 I can connect without any trouble to 802.11 g wifi! I'd like to use 802.11 g because the signal strength is stronger than 802.11 n .I can receive the signal from 802.11 g wifi network somehow.
Whenever I connect AC adapter, display on my laptop goes black and it remians black even after I remove adapter. If I poweroff laptop while adapter connected and power on it again, the lights on keyborad just blinks and it shuts down. If I remove adapter and turn it on then it works fine.If I connect adapter while laptop is powered off then it charges the battery as usual .
I am using an Hp 2000 Notebook PC, and the wireless adapter that came installed on the computer is a Ralink RT5390 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adapter. I have run the driver update tool, and it says that I have the most up to date driver installed. I have also run the "Diagnose Problem" tool, and it says that there are no problems. However, the computer constantly looses internet connection. I assume it has something to do with the wireless adapter, because all of the other wireless devices in the house have no issues. The operating System is Windows 7.
I havea serious problem with my G510 i7 4700MQ.When i plug the power adapter the cpu frequency is set 798 Mhz.When i UNplug the power adapter i can reach maximum 2.4 Ghz.Obvisously i cannot get turbo 3.4Ghz at all.Graphics adapter frequency is also drops to 200 Mhz when i plug the power adapter. is it a buggy notebook? My bios version is 3.05 and i know that the newer version is 3.09 but bios update is only available in Windows 8. I've got windows 7 intel processor diagnostic tool shows FAILED when accessing cpu frequency.
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.
The volume control bar disappeared from the screen. The speaker icon is present on the taskbar. The volume control touch key are operational. But no bar is visible. The notebook is a HP 6910P running on XP pro, clean from viruses and malware.
I'm having major problems with my laptop. Will try and tell you as much as possible.
I have an HP Pavilion DV2700 (DV2799ea) that is about a year old. It has built-in bluetooth which can be quite tempremental. A week ago I searched the net for a way to get my bluetooth working properly and decided to download the latest version of bluetooth for my laptop from the HP website. I then restarted my laptop, like it said. The bluetooth worked perfectly. My internet connection, however, wouldn't work.
I tried going into the very beginning of the laptop and rolling the computer back to a few hours before I installed the new bluetooth in the hope that the bluetooth would be gone but my internet would be back (as I would rather obviously have internet than bluetooth). This did not work.
I also started the laptop in safe mode, but this made no difference.
I also tried diagnosing the problem, finding a new IP address, restarting the laptop again, changing router numbers etc.
I also tried disconnecting the bluetooth, but this didn't make any difference.
I also tried completely removing the wireless connection and then reconnecting it all, this also did not work...................
I just bought my first laptop and it's a DV6-1253ca itz pretty sick. I have one problem though, when I try to connect to my home network, it says im connected but I can't go on the internet or sign into msn anything related to connecting to the internet i cant do. I disconnect and reconnect and it only sometimes work. This also happens when I close the lid~put the computer to sleep and i turn in bk on again, it connects to my home network by itself but still I can't go on the internet.
I have Compaq Presario CQ42-273TU NBPC. In my laptop , if i play video , it becomes very slow. After video becomes slow, everything else on the laptop becomes slow. recently i gave laptop for service also, then also i have issue with video.
it has 1 gig of ram and has a amd turion x2 tl-53 proc, yet it is so slow, i have another laptop which is a hp 6720s with an intel celeron 530 1.73ghz single core and that is miles faster than this dv? also has 1 gig of ram both running windows 7 beta. little update, when i first turn the laptop on and wait for everything to load up i then click firefox and this takes 28 seconds to open up, surely there is something wrong here, aquamark3 shows around 2000 for the amd cpu and around 7000 for the celeron.
when i first got it, right out of the box without messing with services or changing anything, startup was around 40seconds. i could crysis on super high at about 27fps.
Now, i installed GTA4, which is the only other thing i did after crysising, no messing with services or installing other stuff, and my startup = about 1min, even though i take out the rockstar social club from startup.
I got really ticked off, so i reinstalled vista. complete format, everything. didn't mess with services or startup or anything, just let it run on its own. my startup is now 1min 45 seconds! and i can only crysis on medium at 23fps.....which really sucks.
does anybody have any ideas why? I have posted this question in yahoo answers and i get all sorts of people who don't read and tell me to disable this service, disable stuff in my startup....i have the exact same number of startup items and services running on those 3 scenarios.....
Specs: HP Dv2700 2 Tl-62's @ 2.1GHz 4gigs of Ram 64bit op system NVIDIA GeForce 7150m/nForce 630m Toshiba ATA 220gig HD (75 free gigs)
So I've had this problem for a while now and I cannot seem to get a fix for it. When I first bought my computer it was so fast. I would be able to run azerus, iTunes and Firefox with multiple tabs while watching HD videos on gametrailers with a perfectly good frame rate, and everything worked flawlessly.
However now I can hardly watch a video on youtube, the frame rate drops incredibly low and any video, unless is extremely low quality is hardly watchable. The fan is loud (which after reading a few threads found out was pretty common) and the laptop runs pretty hot. I've always ran Trend Micro AntiVirus (recommended from bestbuy) and even now there is no virus detected.
The real downer comes when I look at the task manager performance tab to try and figure out whats going on. I'll notice the processor speeds (on both) are very inconsistent and jump around. Also the physical memory never goes over 1.7gigs of usage. Even when the processor is running at 100% and I have multiple programs open it sort of peaks at 1.7 gigs. So right now I'm thinking that for some reason the laptop isn't accessing all of the available ram and is bottle necking the processor. HOWEVER, I ran Memory Test for 8 hour straight (overnight) and only then did the physical memory peak at 4gigs.
my HP dv4 1222. It's been like this since i got it like 4-6 months ago. Whenever there's a lot of flash going on, be it a flash game or a full screen youtube,hulu video etc, the computer skips frames and gets real choppy. I know these are all flash based, and wondered if the computer is just a POS cuz the amd processor cant handle flash well. It's a Turion x2 2.1 ghz with 4gb RAM, and the radeon hd3200 graphics, so i dunno what the heck is wrong with it.
I have a dv1000t HP Pavilion with XP home edition.
I have been trying to download Windows compatibility pak so Office 2003 can read office 2007 documents.
I had no problems download it on my z70va ASUS. It downloaded in just a few minutes.
But on the HP -- the download is taking over an hour.
When this first happened, I though there was some malware on it. I run AVG Internet security all the time. But just to be on the safe side I downloaded Spybot Search and Destroy and checked with that -- nothing (though I did have it delete all my temporary files, Super AntiSPyware, nothing, Malwarebytes AntiMalware -- it found one registry infection Hijack.start. From what I read elsewhere that's a false positive but I deleted it anyway.
I also installed SP3 on the HP a few days before all this.
My internet is a high speed DSL and both the HP and the ASUS are on it. SO I don't think that is the explanation.
It seems a little bit like even IE is loading slightly slow -- but I am not sure if that is my imagination.
I had receive an old one compaq laptop evo n800c from my father, but I have a problem with this laptop. only for booting (cold or hot booting) it takes about 6 minute stuck in compaq logo in the beginning
I had enabled quick boot option in BIOS but it seem doesn't work because the time needed for booting does not change, such as before a quick boot is enabled
I have an hp l2005co (lance armstrong edition) that has started to go extremely slow. I tried formatting and even downgrading to xp. The xp installation took 6 yes 6 hours. I ram memtest86 and it found zero errors. I also replaced the hd with a new one and I got the same thing. I got an application that tells me the temperatures and idle they would hover at around 60 degrees celsius. I took the computer apart and took the terrible little cushion off the heatsink and applied some thermal grease and now it idles at around 48 degrees celsius. Even after I did that, it's still running excruciatingly slow. Startup times increased drastically though.
I connected a dvd drive to my laptop using, a sata to esata cable. my laptop has a ESATA port.
I don't know if you should post some kind of config summary (if yes let me know, I will do it promptly) basically I have a HP DV6t quad edition with an Intel 5 serie chipset, PM55 express chipset (dont really know if it make any sense but still, I will just say state it) so I installed Intel Matrix Storage and when I connect the drive I can see it, but windows 7 does not see it, it's like I didn't plug anything in. [url] also my bios is almost configurable, I don't know why I can change the time, the date, the admin password, the boot order, virtualization, fan on/off that's pretty much it. so what options do I have if I want to make this dvd drive work?
My battery died a few months ago on my nc8430. It's not an oem batter, but was a third the price. When running on the battery power, the computer is very slow. I have to have NHC on MAX Performance to watch youtube @ low res, or even type without lag. Even with this there is lag on the system. With NHC set to Max Battery, the computer is nearly unusable. Now I've been using the computer for a while, at Max Battery, and AC power, with now problems. And if i plug in the power cable, but change nothing, the system runs at normal speed.
Can a battery cause this type of behavior? Should I return it?
my elitebook 8530w seems to boot up slow w/ 64 bit vista. i did a clean install and installed the drivers. Ex. it will say "please wait" for 20 seconds before going to the "welcome" screen. after "welcome" comes up..it does boot to the desktop very fast and is ready to go though. what is causing vista to hang like this at the welcome screen?
My specs 8GB(4gb x 2) ddr2-667mhz memory qx9300 quad core processor- this thing is a beast! vista x64
i'm not exactly sure what might be causing this because it was working just fine (except for my screen issue) before the disassembly
also it seems to run a little bit better in safe mode but its still slow
after playing with it for a while its main problem is booting and programs are crashing. it takes about 10 minutes to fully boot and then it runs at a normal speed however programs keep crashing like crazy.
It first started when I was doing a light activity (word processing). What happened was both CPUs shot up to 100 percent and everything became horribly slow. Left/right Clicking on an item or the Start orb might take 30 seconds or longer before it would work. Task Manager showed 100 percent CPU usage under performances, but sorting by CPU processes, only 10-15 percent was being used.
I restarted, and to my surprise, instead of the nice under 1 minute load time to the desktop, to took at least 15 minutes where both CPUs were constantly at 100 percent. Safe mode was also very sluggish, where I stopped non-essential processes with msconfig. So I yanked my HDD and did a backup just so I wouldn't lose anything. After a few hours of the 8510p sitting, I put back the HDD and the machine worked perfectly for about an hour, then both CPUs shot up again to 100 percent. Once the issue happens, it occurs everytime I reboot regardless of how I boot into Windows. After being powered off for 4 or more hours (or overnight), It might work for an hour or so and then become horribly sluggish, or it might start out being sluggish, too. (BTW, no viruses)
So I got on the instant chat with HP support and told them about my issue. My tech had me switch out my 2 gigs of RAM with another laptop, but that didn't fix the loading issue. He said it needed to be sent in, so I received my box last Tuesday. On Wednesday, I got a call from HP saying my machine was fine and the only problem was my battery was dead and that would cost me 212 dollars (I don't know where they pulled that number, because a new battery on their website is 109). Great, the time it would actually work for an hour, it works perfectly there. I told them that I didn't need a new battery (I pretty much use it as a desktop at home), but that there was some other issue. She said she would email the "advanced" repair guys to look at my machine...
