HP/Compaq :: Hp Dv9000 Bios
It all started when my dv9000 stopped detecting the DVDRW drive, i tried the same optical drive on a friend's laptop and it worked perfectly. I decided to go for an external DVD drive. After a while it stopped booting from the secondary hard drive (primary hard drive had crashed, so i installed vista on the secondary one). It detects the HDD, but it does not boot from it, the HDD is not even listed in the boot media list when you press f9 button at poweron. So i decided it was time to upgrade the bios, i entered my product number at the hp website, it gave a dv9627 as my model, in the bios its listed as a dv9500, so i downloaded the bios update for dv9500, boot from bootable USB Drive and did the upgrade. From then on my laptop never came on again. I found out about the crisis recovery tool, got a usb floppy drive, created the recovery disk, removed the battery held down the win + b first, plugged in power, powered on, left it for around 15mins, nothing happened, tried fn+b still nothing. The laptop screen just flickers once when i press the power button, power led on, hdd led comes on and then goes off, media button led are all on, other than that no sign of life, but the processor gets alittle hot so i suspect its still functioning. I really need help, i believe the bios can be recovered without sending the laptop to hp. I'm a student running on a really tight budget.

Dell :: Fan Still Goes Off Too Much, Should I Downgrade The BIOS?
The fan in my Studio 1555 keeps going off very often. So I switched from a T9550 to a P8400 and the problem still exists. Will downgrading my current BIOS (A06) to a previous version be harmful?

Dell :: Inspiron 9300 Replacement Board Can I Downgrade The Bios?
this is my first post so a quick hi to all of you and thankyou for many solutions in the past which have spanned from this forum.

Well i have had to bite the bullet and register so i can ask you guys for help...the story goes...

Ok i receive a laptop Dell Inspiron 9300 from a friend who has dropped it (well he says the kid knocked it off the couch and then to add insult to injury he followed it over and landed on it) well needless to say i diagnosed that the motherboard had failed as i ran the system from a barbones state to rule out any hardware failures. So i ordered a replacement board from the big old bad Ebay guy that hangs around the internet...So i rebuild the laptop plug it all in and turn it on.. so far so good i see the Dell logo and select to enter the bios to which i see "entering setup"... now instead of going into the setup i receive only this...
"The ac power adapter cannot be determined. The system can only boot with a 130w power adapter or greater" .....

HP/Compaq :: Shut Down During Vista Clean Installation
I have a HP Dv2700 Cto Notebook with the following specifications

Intel Core 2 Duo 2.1 Ghz,
3 GB RAM,
250Gb Harddisk,
GeForce 8400 Graphics Card
OS - Windows Vista Home Premium

I had followed the Steps in notebookreview.com for "Clean install of Windows Vista" and installed Vista on my Laptop 6 months back and it worked perfectly fine.

Last week, i started facing issues with Vista and the system would automatically Hibernate.

The screen would go blank automatically even while its been used.

So, i decided to clean install Vista again.

I ran the Vista setup CD and using the Vista partition utility, formatted the Primary Parition c: (i have 3 paritions).

I started the setup and after copying 66% of the files. The system automatically shut itself down.

I Had to re-start the setup.

When i restarted the setup, the setup doesnt even start copying files. it shuts down during the initializing setup screen............

HP/Compaq :: Won't Shut Down Unless Leave Screen Open Dv5
dv5 will not shut down when start>shut down>shut down is selected if screen is closed before entire shutdown sequence is completed, if screen is left open, shut down does complete, dv5 is running Vista Home Premium x64

On my other notebooks running XP, as soon as shut down is initiated I can close the screens and the notebooks complete the shut down and turn off while the screen is closed.

Is shut down hanging? Is it this way on all Vista notebooks?

HP/Compaq :: DM3 Excessive Battery Drain When Shut Down
I last used my DM3 about 2 1/2 weeks ago. When I shut it down the battery was at 100%. When I powered it up today, I had only 58% battery charge. This drain seemed excessive to me so I called HP and they seem to have agreed with me as they are sending me a new battery for free under warranty.

Anyone else notice excessive battery drain when the unit is shut down?

Acer :: Aspire 2930z Automatic Power Off
I have Acer aspire 2930z with Windows 7 ultimate (64 bit) installed, the problem I face is sometimes, when I play games on it (the Need for speed undercover). The laptop gets very hot and automatically goes power off, I have to unplug the AC adaptor wire, replug and then only I can switch on the pc or else if I try to switch on without un plugging, nothing happens.

This is a problem for what I am really worried, well sir, I use my laptop with my battery but it is connected to electricity all the time as we have some electric break down problem(s) here, so do you think the pc gets heated because of battery plugged?

Infact before when I got this laptop new, I used to play for 3-4 hours the game and nothing used to happen.

I bought the laptop exactly a year back in march 2009.

I have 4 GB or ram, 320 GB hard and 2.17 dual core processor.

Apple :: 's Automatic Graphics Switchingnot Optimus
Up until recently, many suspected that Apple was just using Nvidia's Optimus technology for its new 15" and 17" MacBook Pros. However, there are key differences which prove this cannot be the case, and Apple themselves have said their technology is different. Unlike Optimus, which sends data from the discrete graphics to the IGP framebuffer, and hence needs to keep the IGP on in discrete graphics mode, Apple's solution powers down the IGP entirely. This means that Apple must actually be using a hardware multiplexer at the back end, just like in all switchable graphics before Optimus.

As far as I can tell, Apple seem to have pulled a coup d'etat with their multiplexer, though, because their switching is supposedly just as seamless as Optimus. I'm guessing that Apple runs both adapters for a short time before making a transition in order to avoid a noticeable delay or flickering. I'd be interested to see how they got over the issue of blocking programs, though.

In any case, Apple's solution has the clear advantage of lower power consumption when running the discrete graphics. However, this comes at the cost of being entirely reliant on Apple's proprietary technology. In particular, Apple hasn't released switchable graphics drivers for Windows, so you're stuck with discrete graphics only if you have some need for dual-booting with Windows. Additionally, Apple's technology doesn't seem to give you a way to change which applications run on which GPU. This means that even if you have a 3D application that you know will run well enough on Intel's GMA HD, you're still stuck using the discrete GPU.

HP/Compaq :: Every Time I Shut Down My Pc It Restarts Itself Like 5 Seconds After It Turns Off
For some reason every time I shut down my pc it restarts itself like 5 seconds after it turns off. I looked it up and someone said try unplugging the Ethernet cable. So I did and when I unplug when I shut it down it doesn't restart itself but only when I leave the Ethernet cable in it. Why is that? Also down on my currently connected icon by the clock why does it show that i'm connected to two networks? I had xp pro before and it only showed me connected to one network but on this new computer it shows me connected to two networks. Network 2 and Network 3, is that normal?

HP/Compaq :: Heatsink For DV9000
i just took apart my laptop yesterday to change my cpu on it. i was running T7500 and changed it to T8300 and man.... that T8300 is so cool. with AS5 my idle temps are down to 25-27*C thats a HUGE jump from my old T7500 which was a mini baking oven.

but anyways.... it took me 3 hours to take everything apart watching videos videos on hp.com but onc ei took it apart, i looked at the HSF and man its one of the weakest hsf i've seen. the only part thats copper is just a tiny square base thats on top of cpu. everything else is crap. and there were some pads on the end of the hsf to i guess cool the little things on the side. (forgot what they were called) i wanted to apply the AS5 to all the places that the pads were touching, but that part of the HFS was not copper. i'm not sure what it was.

i'm sure everyone that ever replaced cpu on the DV9000 had taken the whole laptop apart... have you guys ever thought about replacing the HSF with an aftermarket HSF thats better than the stock? i tried searching and found none that were any better than the stock. none of them are all copper.

and i did not want to put AS5 on the other things that has that white/beige pad on, since the bottom of the HSF looked weak and i did not want to fry the chips/what ever the pads were supposed to cool... can you guys help me find a better HSF for the laptop? or that stock crappy hsf is the best/only thing for me?

HP/Compaq :: Dv9000 + Intel X-25M SSD = Getting Hot
I have installed Intel X-25M SSD with Windows 7 Ultimate in my old dv9000 (CD, 1 Gb RAM), and it is quite a disaster. The laptop is getting hot, installing programs (Portal from Steam) results in 90 C on the processor and a shutdown...

I use RM CPU Clock to lower CPU multiplier from 13x to 6x (it works on my HDD and Windows XP, I don't have issues), but on SSD it won't help much.

Browsing: 70 C
Installing software: up to 90 C and sometimes a shutdown...
Playing games: up to 80 C

HP/Compaq :: Hp Dv9000 Recovery
I having some problems with a DV6000 notebook.

I originally set the machine up with two partitions, one for his documents and the C: My problems started when I was doing some routine maintenance to the machine which belongs to my brother. The C partition was getting quite low so I decided to knock some space of d and add to c. I have done this many times using partition magic but for some reason it failed.

This left me we a hall.dll error on boot, however the machine will still boot if I pressed enter. It also meant that I had about 2 gig of partitioned space, plus the 1 gig for quick launch.

I re-added the 2gig space back to D using gParted, but still no luck, so I then decided to reinstall quick launch, which seemed to go ok accept that after I rebooted, Nothing, just a blinking cursor on the screen.

I then tired to do a recovery using the disks, of course though disk two and three are stuffed. I cant see anywhere, where it asks me to press f11 to restore from the recovery partition which still should be intact............

But the problem is that every time she has to either restart, return from hibernate, or return from sleep mode, the computer cant do it.

If its restarting or returning from hibernate, the computer will begin to start up, you'll hear a click, and it will power down and power up again, click, and repeat the process endlessly.

From sleep mode, the computer will turn the screen on and off like you just "woke" it.

HP/Compaq :: Parentspavilion Dv9000
They have kasperski 2009 full internet protection. So heres the problem. One day they call me over that when they scroll on websites the text gets all squished together and the windows take forever to move/load. so we ran a scan and nothing came out wrong.

Then next time the computer was turned on the logo page that appears at the beginning that says HP and u could press the function keys to go to safety mode, it now never appears and there is a blank screen for about 3min and the vista sign appears and it starts. but overall the computer is very slow and has the scrolling problems. But a few days ago kasperski keeps popping up saying that black keys are missing and to update. So when ever i try it never updates just sits there at 0%. but we do have internet like firefox works fine just slow and the scrolling is annoying because after a while u can;t read anything on a page. But wat is going on? Is it a virus ? and i wanted to recover the computer cuz i do have recovery CD's but i can't even get to the function keys or safety mode and when i try it normally the computer either beeps and turns off or just turns off. i also tried system recovery and it didn;t complete. sorry i know this is alot but sometimes the screen goes black in random moments and comes back and says the screen drivers have recovered from like an error or sumthing. like i think it'd be best to just restore the computer at this point, but i don;t know how if i can't use the function keys or safety mode.

If so can you supply a posotive web link where to find the right drivers,so all devices in the device driver section are activated & don't have any exclamation marks present.

I know there is a thread on HP's website & its not very instructive,it seems a bit hit & miss.

If you get it right ,you get it right!

I managed a couple of tries,but always ended up without a network controller &

some device called unibrian pc 1394 missing!

HP/Compaq :: HP DV9000 18.5V 3A Adapter Broke
My girlfriends HP dv9000 adapter broke at the cord where it plugs in the the laptop and she needs to buy a replacement. It is an 18.5V 3Amp adapter. She found one on ebay (claiming to be new) for like $0.99, but I'm extremely skeptical that it will work satisfactorily and may even damage the laptop.

Do you all have any suggestions for replacing it? Purchasing a new one from HP would work, but it is definitely the most expensive options. Has anybody had any luck with ones from other sellers, from ebay, amazon, etc.?

As soon as i plug the laptop in, the connection dies and I have to reconnect. And... when I reconnect with the laptop plugged in I only get a third of my availably connection speed? This leads me to think that there is something up with the usb ports on the dv9000 and that the laptop is not powering them properly when its plugged in...
