HP/Compaq :: Built In Bluetooth Modules

Feb 20, 2009

find the part number for the internal Bluetooth chip for the HP Touchsmart PC (TX2z)? I would like to purchase that so I don't have to have A) one of my USB ports consumed and B) not have anything hanging off the laptop waiting to be snagged or broken.

Does anyone know of a website with instructions for dismantling this model laptop? Where is the Bluetooth chip at? I was under the assumption that the wireless NIC had the bluetooth built into it - but when I took out a working wifi/BT chip and put it in this laptops slot - it found the wireless portion just fine, but no Bluetooth (even when installing same drivers as the original laptop the card came from).

Dell :: Bluetooth 365/370 Modules Failing-multiple Platform,multiple Bluetooth Versions

Apr 17, 2010

I have need to use Bluetooth stereo audio functionality (A2DP profile) almost exclusively when I use my laptop.

I had owned a M1330 with the Dell 355 Bluetooth Module for several years without issue. Last November, I decided to upgrade and purchased an M15x (laptop #1) with the Dell 370 Bluetooth module included,running Windows 7 x64 Ultimate. Not more than one day out of the box,the 370 module failed while watching a movie. It literally disappeared from device manager and no uninstalling/reinstallation of drivers alleviated the situation. The only way to get the radio to be recognized by the operating system was, and is, to shutdown,reboot into bios,disable the card in bios,reboot into windows,restart,boot into bios,enable the card and then reboot into Windows. The card would then work for awhile but eventually fail again. The module works for short periods of time but if put under an extended load,fails. That and other issues with the M15x caused me to return it.

Contacted Dell and returned the M15x and bought and built a Studio XPS 1645 (laptop #2) to replace it. Received the unit and literally within the 1st few hours,the 370 module failed exactly like the M15x.I thought o.k. a bad card and had tech support send out a new module for the XPS 1645. Received and installed it and the exact same problem happened. Failed when under an extended load. Again called tech support and was then dispatched an onsite tech to replace the entire motherboard and card. No resolution-card failed again. Spoke with a resolution specialist and returned it and again purchased a M15x (laptop #3-really liked the M15x over the XPS 1645)

Received the M15x-Bluetooth failure again. At this point, was considering dropping Dell altogether but thought I'd try the Studio 1558 (laptop #4) with the Bluetooth 365 module, in order to rule out the 370 card, first. Ordered and was delivered on the 5th of April, same exact issue-failure of card under a load. I am returning this defective Studio 1558 and again getting a M15x (laptop #5). I realize that the M15x Bluetooth card will fail again-in fact,am 100% sure it will fail,but have bought a Sony Bluetooth transmitter as a workaround.

What appears to be happening is that the card will shutdown when it gets warm.This is either a Broadcom manufacturing defect or a Dell engineering issue. I know now through personal experience that there is a serious issue with Dell Bluetooth cards.

If this was happening with only one laptop, I'd be ok with it but, this is occuring across multiple laptop platforms, with both Broadcom Bluetooth cards that Dell brands and sells.

This is either an oversight by engineering-maybe they didn't test the card under a heavy load, or Dell is knowingly selling defective equipment.

Dell :: Microsoft Bluetooh Keyboard/Mouse: Will It Work With Built In Bluetooth?

Jan 9, 2009

have found the keyboard on its own for a bargain price, however it does not come with the USB bluetooth adaptor, just the keyboard on its own.

My question is will the keyboard (and the mouse if I ever buy it seperately) work with my Studio 15's built in bluetooth?

I have googled for ages on this but can't get a definitive answer. There have been mentions of 'no' some people say yes but you have to change the bluetooth stack e.t.c.

Dell Studio 1558 :: How To Check / Fault Find Built-in Bluetooth

Aug 27, 2010

Not sure how to check / fault find the built-in Bluetooth on my Studio 1558. I installed a Logitech Bluetooth mouse on it about two months ago, and mostly it works well. But this afternoon there is suddenly no response to the mouse. (It worked this morning.) It seems that the laptop's Bluetooth has disconnected for some reason - doing a Bluetooth search with my cellphone picks up the mouse but not the laptop. I've put new batteries in the mouse, made sure it's switched on, clicked it's Connect switch. I also rebooted the computer. I've tried the F2 comms on/off function key. None of this worked. The built-in broadband comms is working fine.

HP/Compaq :: HP Dv3t-2000Crackly Audio In Built-In Speakers

Dec 12, 2009

I purchased a 13" HP Dv3t-2000 Moonlight White laptop back in May 2009. I got this particular model before HP released the backlit keyboard option in their slightly newer DV3t's. I also upgraded from Windows Vista Home Premium 64 bit to Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit in October 2009.

Anyways, ever since I got my laptop I've had an audio issue. Whenever I turn my volume up to 100%, and I play music or a youtube video through my built in speakers, the audio output gets crackly. I can feel the audio vibrating through my laptop. I have to turn my volume down to around 64% to eliminate only a part of the crackling.

This crackling issue doesn't happen when I listen to audio through headphones or earbuds. But I would like to have clear audio output through my built in speakers.

ON A SIDE NOTE: My brother got a 13" HP Dv3t Espresso Black about a month after mine, and his has a backlit keyboard. When he turns his volume to the max, and plays something through his built in speakers, there is NO CRACKLING whatsoever!

I went to his Speaker settings and found that he has the IDT High Definition Audio Codec installed. I checked mine and it just says Default speakers. That raised a red flag - the fact that I didn't have this IDT codec could be my problem..........

It is not recognized in slot A or B. This was tested with BIOS A08 and A12. This unit was purchased in March 2008.

It's a no go for this model it seems.

Acer :: 3G Built-in For Aspire One?

Oct 13, 2008

when 3G for the Acer Aspire One is finally offered, new models, of course, will have 3G capability built in. Does anybody have a guess as to what kind of modification or accessory we will be able to use to get 3G on existing AAOs.

I would rather not have to go the route of the ATT USB DataConnect thingy, but will if I have to.

Dell :: Before Modding: DIY Built In Webcam

Aug 4, 2008

what I have here is an e1705 which I have been modding, externally it looks like a 1710, which one day it will be one when I can afford the prices, but what I want to do is I want to take a cheap USB webcam with a built in microphone, and build it into the bezel above the screen.

Has anyone done this before?

The only issues I'm afraid of are camera size, the rest should be fairly easy, tapping into a USB port, setting the mics and drilling holes etc.

Making room for a tiny cam will surely be the hardest part, and making room for it up there and having to cut apart at the lock system at the top to keep the screen from opening.

Luckily since I do have an XPS LCD back on this there is plleeenty of room for wires etc, the standard 1705 LCD back is nearly flush with the backlight making it hard to add any more wires, but the XPS LCD back has tons of room so i'm not worried about that, and I've opened this up enough to route wires down to one of the USB ports easily.

Dell :: M1530 Is Poorly Built?

Jul 5, 2009

I really want to see if I can exercise the "lemon law" on my computer or just to see if the XPS M1530 is just a poorly built machine.

This will be the 5th time I have to get Dell to come over to fix a problem. 2 times for the hinge snapping, one time I dropped it off of my bed, which is a foot high, and the hinges snapped off again.

Then another time because the guy who came to fix my screen broke the motherboard. Also, now my computer doesn't charge when plugged in. All it says is "plugged in, but not charging"...

Dell :: Studio 17 Has Static Using Built In Mic

Sep 30, 2008

Im having a problem trying to get my built in mic working. I have a new Studio 17 with the Creative Sound enhancement option, not the sound card just the Creative Audigy software.

when I try to record voice, I can barely hear my voice over the noise which sounds like a mixture of static, and buzzing mixed in. However, I can play mp3's perfectly with no hiss or static. So the playback is working fine.

When I plugged an external mic in the static is gone. I'd like to be able to use the built in mic when possible so I dont have to take the external one along with me.

I noticed on my system that I have an IDT High Definition sound package, as well as the Creative Audigy sound enhancing software with mixer console, including EAX special effects, etc, to enhance the sound.

Anyone know what could be causing the noise on the mic? I've searched the forum and cant find a problem identical to this so Im sorry if theres a post that explains how to fix this, I cant find it.

I can adjust my sound with both the IDT HD mixer console, and the Creative Audigy sound mixer as well. But I cannot eliminate or find the cause of this static.

I got a newer Sigmatel Audio driver but that didnt elminate the problem so I set the system back to the way I got it.

I thought about buying the X fi Xtreme sound card as I do a lot of karaoke singing and need to have the music mixed with voice so I can record it but this static problem has me baffled. And they want $80 for that little sound card. I could ignore it but the laptop is brand new and it should be static free. I eliminated ac hum as the source by unplugging the ac adapter and ran on battery alone, and static was the same it made no difference.

I also turned down the record level down to 40 and boost level of the mic to 0dB but it will won't go away.

Acer :: How Can I Find Out If My Other Hard Drive Has A Built In OS

Aug 30, 2009

I am currently using an acrer aspire 2930z. It comes with two HDD, both of which have 111GB each. I am only using 1 HDD at the moment which is only around 52percent full. I want to move all my movies, music and games to my other empty one, (we'll call drive D)but when I do this my drive D only opens up as a folder. Itries to mark this HDD as active, but get a maessage telling me that if drive D has no OS installed on it, it could stop my comp from working. What I would like to know is...... Does this drive come with vista already installed?

this is only to save me buying an external drive, (which is probably the better option), but with this extra space on my laptop it would be handy to use.

Sony :: The Built In Webcam Is Not Recognized :( [VGN-FW145E]

Mar 6, 2009

i have been using my sony viao without any problems so far, and all of a sudden, my webcam is not recognized!

i tried to get it through skype, and it wouldn't work, i then went to the webcam software, and it also wouldn't work.

the error message said something like webcam not recognized, and then it said something like reinstall or might be in use with other programs. but for SURE, there is no other program running it!

i don't know how to install a webcam that is already inbuilt!

on a side, note, i also bought the really neat sony vaio mouse, the bluetooth one, and that too is not being recognized by my vaio

i am not sure if the mouse and webcam are related issues, or separte. if somebody has any idea of what i can try to do, i would REALLY REALLY REALLY appreciate it! thx, i need to connect to my family through webcam!

Apple :: New Built-in Battery On The Macbook Pro Line

Jun 8, 2009

I've always been a Mac fan and am quite impressed with today's update. I recently purchased 2 new 13" Macbook's a few months ago for my mother and myself. The only complaint we both have is the horrible 2.3-3 hour battery life, instead of selling our lovely investments do you think we can pay to have the new built-in battery placed into the system or should we sell and repurchase? I understand the new systems have quite a few new hardware updates but that's all irrelevant, we just want that new sleek battery life!

We also want the new iPhone 3GS. Grr Apple, you always know how to do it right.

Apple :: Macbook Pro 15.4 Or New Desktop (Custom Built)

Nov 14, 2009

I just have one more question before I pull the trigger. Originally, I was looking to buy a new computer whether it was a laptop or a desktop. At first, my eyes were on a Vaio Z (P8700, 4 gigs, etc.....), Macbook Pro...etc...

The reason that got me to change to desktop is its performance numbers on paper. I already have a laptop so the new computer can either be desktop or laptop. In all seriousness, how much of a "day-to-day" performance boost will I notice by going with the desktop? (a noticeable enough performance to make me say..."wow it was really worth it to go with a desktop"? Day to day activities include opening many many windows including browsers, word/powerpoint, msn, movies, etc. Some more demanding applications will include photoshop/lightroom and some games.

By talking to a lot of people on forums, they keep on saying that for day to day operations, I won't notice any difference (I want the most smoothest experience, opening/alternating windows...which I am not getting with my laptop at the moment). Even for these small day to day applications, will I notice a difference in this desktop against one of the latest laptops? Honestly, gaming is important but not the deciding factor here.

I was also thinking of getting a premium laptop and then buying a Samsung HD240 as an external monitor but people said it will put great stress on my laptop (overheating issues...)

Dell Inspiron 15 :: Allow Built-In Overdrive Mode?

Nov 29, 2014

The above series of processors apparently have an "Overdrive" mode at that will allow the cores to jump to 2.4ghz from their normal working clock speed of 1.8ghz. However, there seems to be no way to use it or access it. The clock speed will not move above 1.8ghz no matter how much demand I put on the system. There are no obvious (or unobvious) BIOS settings that even reference AMD Overdrive. I'd like to be able to utilize the extra power, but I can't seem to find it. I'm running Linux on this machine, though I assumed that Overdrive would have been handled at the BIOS level.

HP/Compaq :: KB955430 Kills Bluetooth

Apr 28, 2009

KB955430
Install this update to enable future updates to install successfully on all editions of Windows Vista. This update may be required before selected future updates can be installed. After you install this item, you may have to restart your computer.

See unit system specs below. Both of these units are set to notify, but not to download or install updates, automatically. This evening both computers showed that updates were available. I downloaded and installed KB955430 on the DV4t and restarted the computer.

The update killed the Bluetooth. By that, I mean that the Microsoft BT notebook mouse 5000 that we normally use on this unit was no longer detected. Hmmmm.. so I checked the BT for the phone my daughter uses. Nope. It was gone also, though both devices still appeared in the BT manager. I uninstalled both devices, re-initiated each device, installed the keys, and all function returned without issue. The exact same behavior then occurred on the DV2700tv following the update.

I believe KB955430 is a preparation install for Vista SP2 but I have no idea why such an update would kill the BT until it was cleared and re-initiated. I also can't say whether this problem is specific to something I have setup in BT on each computer or whether it effects all Vista computers w/BT, HP Vista computers w/BT, or what? Different chip-sets though and same result. I just thought all you BT users might appreciate the heads-up.
