HP/Compaq :: Best BIOS Update For DV6000T

Feb 17, 2009

Any one BIOS update known to be better than the rest?

I am reading a good deal on the boards, and people like F.16, but I don't know which would work best in my situation. My main issue is being able to see the 3.12 GB of RAM after I put 2 2GB sticks in.

I have XP MCE , T7200 which came with the DV6000T bought in Jan 07.

I just want it to run cooler and faster, so far it has been a workhorse.

Which would be the best choice? [url]

HP/Compaq :: BAD BIOS FLASH- DV6000t

Feb 5, 2009

I have a DV9500tCTO and a DV6000tCTO. Both of them had the issue of good hard drive to SD card performance, but abhorible SD to hard drive performance. It would run one core to 100% and 75% for the other. I contacted HP today about it and they told me about the F.59 BIOS that was designed to fix the issue. My current had been F.52. So I loaded it on my 9000 and rebooted, all good, better temps, and my SD worked as it should. So they said load it on the 6000 and check results. Everything seemed to go fine, said successful, brought up reboot message box, let the timer count down as normal, it shut down. Hit power button and fricking nothing! Black screen, and leds come on. Mute button turns orange, then goes blue and stays blue. Wireless light is orange. The fan starts up fast then slows to a quiet (like minimum speed) run. I don't know what to do. "Within the next 24-48 hours" my escalated case correspondant is supposed to call. I'm a college student. I cannot afford to replace this crap. And I can't afford 300$ charge i've been seeing float around for BIOS repair by HP. My 9000 still has 1.5 years of warranty, I wish it would have happened to it. My 6000 is out of warranty. I gotta have this second laptop for school, no way around it. But I can't afford to replace it right now, I just paid 6,500$ in tuition/rent/books. I did this according to a service techs recommendation, I don't see how I should have to pay for the ed update.

HP/Compaq :: HP Dv6000t Max Ram/HD

Jul 21, 2009

my laptop is an HP Pavilion dv6000t (built in Dec 2006). I have upgraded to the latest BIOS, F.29, and I have heard that with this latest BIOS, it should be able to support up to 4GB of RAM, 3GB with a 32-bit Win XP, which I have. Today I upgraded my RAM from 1.5GB to 2.5GB (1x2GB, 1x512MB), but my OS only recognizes 1.5GB of RAM.

I contacted HP support, and they told me to interchange the memory modules. I did that, and it didn't change anything. I contacted them again, and they told me that the max supported is 1.75GB, and anything beyond that "HP is not responsible for."

Also, I'd like to upgrade my hard drive from 160GB to 320GB, but HP tech support told me that my build only supports up to 160GB. Can it support 320GB?

I'm going to college this fall, and my school recommends that I have 3GB of memory and 250GB HD installed. My laptop is only 2.5 years old, which is why I'm reluctant to replace it. Tell me, is 3GB RAM/320GB HD possible on HP's dv6000t, or will I need to replace my computer?

HP/Compaq :: DV6000T Not Recognizing RAM

Jan 28, 2009

I have a DV6000T with Windows MCE bought in Jan 07. It came with 2 GB of RAM, and I finally decided to upgrade to 4 (although I know it can only read 3.12). I bought 2 x 2GB Kingston DDR 2 PC2-5300 667 MHz RAM and installed both sticks into my DV. I turned on the thing expecting to see 3.12 or something of the sort in the system area, but it still only shows 2GB.

HP/Compaq :: DV6000t Laptop Display/GPU

Mar 9, 2009

The video card is 7400go.

Yesterday I left my computer for 3 minutes unatended, and when I returned I saw that the screen was on but there was no picture. Something like a blank screensaver. So I restarted, but the screen still was not displaying anything. There is only backlight with absolutely no image whatsoever.

So I plugged in the laptop today to an external monitor, and the monitor displayed bars of RGB lines all over the place. So I am wonderring what do you guys think could have went wrong? Do you think it could be the GPU, bad connection? I can see that there is some HD activity going on through the led but nothing loads or makes a sound.

HP/Compaq :: DV6000t Can't Start Up/charge. Ongoing Troubleshooting

Apr 20, 2010

i've had this DV6000t (or dv6500) for quite some time. I believe i've had it since 2007, but really started using it a lot from 2009, running almost 24/7.

Here's the situation: I was playing a bit of Starcraft 2, and decided it would be fun to drop a dozen Terrain Ghost Nukes in an area. For those familiar with the game, you may notice a lot of lag when you do that. I didn't know it would lag like that until my computer abruptly shut off on me. Now nothing lights up except for the AC jack. I checked the vents, HDD, RAM, and other spots that may have heated up a lot, but nothing was really running hot. I'm familiar with how hot my laptop can be; the laptop was just 'warm' right after shutdown.

My guess is that I either:
-Overheated the laptop, which is what anyone would probably expect since HP Pavilions are well known for this, or...
-I may have had a power surge while I was playing.

So, I investigated my opening up my laptop to see if there were any physical damages.

It's hard to see with the blurry picture, but I actually think the chips didn't burn out. But i'm no expert with fried chips......

HP/Compaq :: DV6-2190US BIOS Update

Apr 24, 2010

HP has posted a BIOS update on their website for the DV6-2190US laptop. The update is listed as F.1AA and claims to "improve system fan behavior". This laptop has a quad core I7, 720 QM clarksfield processor so anything to better control heat would be good to consider. I am usually never hesitiant to update a BIOS, even on the numerous laptops I have owned, but....I have noticed HP had some of their BIOS updates bricking their laptop lately.

Has anyone flashed their DV6-2190 with this update yet?

HP/Compaq :: Messed Up My6910p After BIOS Update

Nov 15, 2009

I thought it was a good idea to update my BIOS from F0.A to F17.

I am now stuck with the fan constant running and I have checked some other threads and found that you can switch this off in the BIOS.

I have checked and it is already switched off!

I tried to restore to go back to the old BIOS but it seems I am f****d. Not possible.

Are there tricks to go back to the original firmware.

Are there third party software that can stop the fan turning all the time.

HP/Compaq :: Presario V6130us Blue Screen After Bios Update

Mar 9, 2010

My troubles are as follows:
I started working on a presario v6130us laptop with a blue screen. The owner thought it was due to a virus when she opened a email. I went and wiped the HD and reinstalled windows XP pro. Had the darn thing working nicely.

Then I thought he computer was running a lil slow, so I decide to update the bios. From (I believe) v.07 to ver.29 from the hp website. At the restart, it never restarted, so I restarted it by pressing power button. Went into the same ol blue screen loop. The stop message is 0x0000007b. I looked that variable up on the microsoft webpage. It says it is a Win 2000 unmountable boot device. Prior to this message it was Stop 0x000000ED.

Does anyone know how to roll the bios back, or what could be causing this problem? I have done a quick HD test. so far it has passed and is now doing the "executing" test @ 20% complete. B4 the bios update, the test would say FAIL 1- 07.

Acer :: Update BIOS And Got BSOD

Sep 6, 2009

I have Acer Aspire 5315 and was running Bios v1.33. It has been running warm for sometime and thought an updated BIOS would help.

I tried the ACER site but didn't see any BIOS updates listed for XP. I have XP Pro on it now.

I followed a different link and found BIOS 1.45 so i Flashed it using WinFlash.

After it completed it shut down, i waited a couple of min. and powered back up, when i did i saw the BSOD for about 2 seconds and then goes to selective startup (Normal, Safe, Safe w/networking etc...)

I have not tried safe mode yet but in normal it just goes back to that screen again.

I saw the thread on using the FN+ESC mode but not sure if i really need to do that.

what I should do to restore it back to 1.33? I have to check my external HD but i think i still have that 1.33 version saved that i used when i did it the first time.

Lenovo ThinkPad L R/SL :: How To Update BIOS Without Using A CD

Jan 30, 2014

I have recently decided to upgrade my RAM from 2GB to 4GB. After installing, I booted up my computer to find that it would not recognize the new memory. After doing a bit of troubleshooting, I decided to try and update the BIOS, as the version was from 2010. I downloaded the BIOS update boot CD application from lenovo, burned a disc, and on reboot I found that the boot order did not have CD listed on it. Here's the catch: I don't have the supervisor password. This is a hand-me-down laptop, and I have tried to find the password to no avail. This is the current boot order: USB drive, Hard drive. 
 
My question is, can I either create a BIOS update disc using a USB, or update the BIOS some other way?
 
I understand that it is impossible to recover the supervisor password without having it serviced (which I would rather not do, even if I have to send my RAM back to Crucial)
 
My system specs:
Thinkpad L512
Bios version: 1.04
Bios date: 2010-3-26
Embeded Controller Version: 1.01
Windows 7 32 bit

Dell :: Cant Update BIOS Of My New Studio XPS 1340

and I had some troubles configuring my graphic cards in SLI mode. I read somewhere, that BIOS upgrade from A07, which I have, to A11 will help with this problem.

I downloaded A11 BIOS update, but the setup wont recognize my current BIOS. When I load into the BIOS I see, that its really rev. A07, also it has header from Dell inc.
