HP/Compaq :: CPU Upgrade On A Presario CQ40-314TU
Can the Compaq Presario CQ40-314TU handle a C2D mobile chip? It's stock with a T3400 but would it handle the T7600? The two chips are nearly identical with 65nm, 667MHz FSB, 35W power, and even packing type.

HP/Compaq :: Installing Broadcom Driver In CQ40-310AU
I just got a new laptop. But there seems to be a problem with the Broadcom Wireless Driver. When I install the driver it always stops at the middle and says Error"PBR_REL_5_10 827" Do you think that the Wifi(device) is broken? I just installed Vista.

HP/Compaq :: 1080p HD Video Playback On A Presario CQ40-332TU
I recently picked up a Compaq Presario CQ40-332TU - it's pretty much a bottom of the barrel bargain laptop, I know, but I was pleasantly surprised at how well it handled playback of 720p video, even output over HDMI to a 720p HDTV.

The relevant specs are as follows:

Intel T3400 (2.0GHz)
2 GB RAM
GMA 4500MHD

Running video through:

Quicktime 7.6.4
VLC 1.0.3

My question is, can this computer play 1080p video? My understanding of the integrated video card is that it SHOULD be able to handle 1080p playback quite smoothly. However, I can't ever seem to get it to run for more than 10 seconds at a time without dropping frames and getting video lag and severe ghosting / pixelization and artefacting. I'm currently running the RC1 of Windows7 (I'm waiting for the prices here in the Philippines to drop as they're a bit exorbitant)

HP/Compaq :: 6540b Won't Turn On
I have a hp probook 6540b from work.

Yesterday when i went out of work, i closed the lid put it in my backpack and left it there until this morning.

Today when i tried to turn it on nothing seems to happen except the battery light that is blinking when i press the power button.

It blinks fast like 5-7 times changing color between blue and orange, and then just turns off.

I tried removing the battery and turning it on with just the AC adapter - same effect, same blinking.

I tried just with the battery - nothing at all (not even the blinking)

With the battery and the adapter together - blinking.

I have a feeling that yesterday it didn't go to sleep when i closed the lid and what happened is taht it was working closed inside my backpack until it either fried something from the heat, or the battery ended from the fans blowing full on.. But that's just a hunch..

meaning of the blinking battery light ?

Or maybe has a service manual that i can check ?

HP/Compaq :: HELP --zd7005qv Wont Turn On
My HP zd7005qv laptop stopped turning on a little while back, and at first I thought it was a failed HDD. However, I also noticed that when I plug in the power cord, the lights would blink only for a brief moment then immediately go off. So I started fiddling with the cord and I got it in a position where the lights would complete their start-up blink, and when I tried to turn it on it actually started booting. But it stopped as soon as I moved the power cord again.

So I figured that the problem was a bad power jack.. it's pretty common from what I hear. I disassembled it, desoldered the power pin, and soldered a new one I bought off eBay. Now there is absolutely no problem with the power jack but the laptop still wont turn on. I'm afraid I may have screwed something else up while disassembling and reassembling the laptop.

When I press the power button, the lights at the top come on, I hear a light whining buzz and then all the lights shut off. I tried removing the RAM sticks, I even remove the HDD and the same thing happens no matter what. I tried turning it on with just the AC adapter, and I even let the battery charge a bit to try tuning it on with just the battery. I think I may have killed my processor..

HP/Compaq :: Way To Turn On Envy 15 Without Opening Lid
Most of the time I use my Envy 15 on my desk and hooked up to an external monitor. In this mode I do not use the laptop screen, so have it set to just display on the external.

However, to turn on the laptop obviously I have to open it up and press the power switch.

What I want to do, is turn it on whilst keeping it closed. I used to be able to do this with my Dell Latitude E6400, as it has an option in the BIOS to turn on automatically when AC is connected. Thus, when I turned it off I would simply unplug power, then to turn it on again would just plug the power back in without having to open lid.

I have looked, and the Envy 15 BIOS is very limited and I don't see a similar option. Is there possibly another solution to get it to turn on when closed?

HP/Compaq :: Pavilion DV2000. Won't Turn On
Laptop is a hp pavilion dv2000 laptop.

Went to turn on the laptop and walked away. A minute or two later come back and laptop is not past the BIOS, and a screen talking about a laptop being ran until the battery drained last time it was on. I didn't get a chance to finish reading the screen because the laptop restarted. Nothing shows up on the screen after the restart. I was running off the AC adapter when this happened.

Situation now is pressing the power button causes the power button, media quick play bar. Power notification light , light above mouse pad and the wireless slider to light up. If the AC adapter is plugged in the charge light will light as well.
I also hear a fan and i think the HDD. The HDD light doesn't light though. Nothing will show on the screen. stays black. I have tried powering it with AC adapter only, charged battery only, and with a charged battery and AC adapter.

HP/Compaq :: Presario 1200; Plugged In But Won't Turn On
This is an old notebook. A Compaq Presario 1200 Series notbeook (1200 XL-101). When I plug in the power cable, the LED lights up, indicating it's plugged in - however absolutely nothing happens if I hit the power button.

I have tried this with or without the Battery in it. In the past this notebook was able to turn on WITHOUT any battery in it if it was plugged in; being directly powered by the power cable.

Does anyone have any input one where I can begin to fix this? I don't want to bring it in to a shop; I'd rather fix it myself. I'm handy with hardware so I can open and replace parts. I just don't know what is wrong with it.

HP/Compaq :: Fan Won't Turn On When Laptop Is On Battery Power
I have a HP Compaq 2230S business laptop, but this question could be put to any HP laptop. The fan is constantly running when the laptop is plugged into the power outlet, but as soon as I pull the plug to run on battery power the fan powers down and stops. I re-plug the laptop back in and the fan kicks up again.

This is not good as I almost burned myself when I picked up the laptop after an hour sitting on the table on battery power. The hard drive is right beside the processor, so the laptop gets really hot.

Vista x64 Ultimate is what I'm using at the moment and my power scheme calls for 1% minimum and 100% maximum CPU on battery power.

HP/Compaq :: Nw8440 LCD Randomly Forgets To Turn On
I recently had to have the motherboard replaced on my HP Compaq nw8440 due to a bad DMA controller. About a week after I got the board replaced, I turned the machine on one day, and the screen was split, squished and doubled. The HP logo showed up twice; once on the top half on the screen and once on the bottom half of the screen. The GRUB menu and the XP boot screens were the same way, but once windows was up, everything was back to normal!

The next day, I turned it on, and the screen wouldn't come on at all. Everything SEEMED to be working fine (judging by the HD activity), but there was no screen. I pulled the battery, held the power button down, and everything was fine again for about a month.

Last week, I turned it on, and it again forgets to turn on the screen. This has happened two more time since then. Sometimes the backlight comes on; other times, it's totally dead. Pulling the battery and holding the power button fixes it every time. Does anyone have any ideas as to why it's doing this? Will reflashing the BIOS help?

HP/Compaq :: DV6000- Lights Turn On For 2 Seconds, And It Shuts Right Off
I have a HP DV6000 Laptop. Im aware of the problems these models have. But this one I have not yet heard of. When I attempt to power it on, the lights turn on for 2 seconds, and it shuts right off. Its not like the Video card issue everyone speaks of. I have extensive technical background, and I have tried taking everything out, and trying each part one by one. I have tried swapping the power button ribbons, I have tried removing the bios battery. I guess im wondering if anyone else has ever been able to figure out whats going wrong with this setup? copuld it be a lack of contact between heat sync and CPU? please give me whatever input you can. I would like to not have to spring for a new Mobo. I can solder, and I am thinking of trying to heat the soldering points with a heat gun maybe. I dont know if thats the problem tho. and also, when the AC adaptor is plugged in, the blue LED surrounding it is on.

I also tried all this (of course)

1. Remove battery.
2. Remove AC power.
3. Remove and reseat your RAM modules.
4. Replace your RAM modules.
5. Hold down your power button for 1 minute.
6. Replace your AC power (not battery) and turn on
remove the small bios cmos battery for 15min and then put it back in

HP/Compaq :: Unresponsive Laptop- Won't Turn On, Even With The Battery Plugged Into The Wall
My mother was having some trouble with her laptop, and I was wondering if you guys had an idea of what the problem could be. Basically, it won't turn on, even with the battery plugged into the wall. It is completely unresponsive. The last time she used it was last night, and she said that when she was done, she left it on with the screen down and the battery plugged in.

HP/Compaq :: Dv9700t LCDrear Pressure On Lid Makes Whites Turn Pink
This machine was not dropped or damaged in any manner to cause this. Last couple of weeks when I open the LCD lid past 90 degrees upright, the LCD screen letters of words turn fuzzy and page colors change.

For example, if I push gently back on the LCD lid of my right now as I type here on this forum page, the white background of this web page turns 2 shades of pink with what looks like large square-like pink pixels. When I let up on the pressure, and the screen returns forward to 85 degress upright, the LCD screen colors of this web page go back to normal -- white is white and the image is sharp.

It is the entire page -- no pressure spots or issue limited to around the edges, its the whole screen that is affected.

LCD going bad or something else? This is definitely related to the angle of the lid and the issue is both position and pressure sensitive.

HP/Compaq :: HP Pavilion DV6120US - Won't Start... Blank/black Screen When Turn On
I'm more of a desktop user but my husband gave me this laptop on January 2007. Since then, I think I only used it for less than 20 hours (we don't have a wireless)... when we got out of town.

The last time I used it, about a year ago, it turned off by itself. I tried to use it again when I got home but the screen is just blank whenever I turn it on. What could be the problem? I don't think it's a good idea to send it for repair to HP as the warranty expired already.

when I turn it on, all the blue lights turn on... but the screen won't therefore I can't use it. Ealier, I hooked up an external monitor but didn't work. Could it be an LCD problem?

The notebook doesn't have any scratch or whatsoever. It still looks like new, yet not working.

Dell :: My XPS Wonīt Turn On
I have my Inspiron Gen 2 XPS since 2005 and Iīm very pleased for all the good years.

But I think is dead now. I donīt know what happen but it was a bit overheat this last years, maybe I didnīt pay enough attention to its cleaning needs as I did the first year I bought it.

So yesterday I turn it off as usual, and now I tried starting it and it wonīt even boot the Dell logo.

The fans turn ON and everything, even the screen iluminates, but doesnīt show any images and the Num Lock key is iluminated.

I donīt even get to the boot screen, it just wonīt load up anything. My lappy is dying and its in a really critical moment.

Dell :: My XPS M1330 Won't Turn On!
When it's plugged in, the power light on the power button lights, as does the power light on the front edge of the laptop. But, after about 4 seconds, both lights cut off.

After they cut off, the battery light on the front edge blinks just once (even when battery is not connected).

Nothing powers up during those 4 seconds. No hard drive sound, no fan on the mboard, etc. Just the lights ....

Dell :: M1530 Won't Even Turn On
I have a year old red M1530. My specs are:

Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit
(Clean install on empty hard drive, only basic drivers/no crapware)
Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit (Dual boot)
Core 2 Duo T7700
x2 Corsair 2GB DDR2-667MHz RAM
GeForce 8600M GT 256MB GDDR3
320GB 5400rpm HDD (Samsung -_-)

Recently I dropped my laptop from my bed, making the bottom left hand corner of the palmrest (i.e. the part right above the HDD) bend and open outwards, so I bought a new Product Red palmrest off ebay and replaced it myself - worked a charm, had no problems for two days.

The problem occurred today: I decided I would restart my computer to work on my Windows 7 partition as it was the partition without Steam. It shut off like normal, but it stopped at a black screen - the Dell startup screen never showed up. I had to switch off the computer by holding down the power button.

Now, when I turn it on, everything starts up as normal for a split second, then all the lights on the multimedia interface go out, and nothing shows up on the screen...I can hear the hard drive running like normal, so I doubt it's a hard drive failure.

The techie at my uni residence says that either the LCD display wiring has gone faulty, or the LCD burnt out (or some other bit of hardware), but I find it funny that this should happen AFTER a restart...isn't that a bit of a coincidence? I opened up my laptop to reconnect the cabling, but nothing seems to work...a motherboard failure perhaps?

I'm sure it was an update but am not sure how to go about fixing. I know I can just start uninstalling updates till the fan turns off but if there is a better way that would be great.

Dell :: XPS M1710 Won't Turn On
I've had my laptop for about two months now. I bought it from a recondition company - ndc.co.uk. It's been fine up till now. On friday night it was working perfectly, then when I went to turn it on on saturday afternoon it was nothing doing. Two of the lights on the back right (the power one and the one next to it) lit-up for about a second, then they went back off again, and that was it. It's been doing that ever since. The light on the AC power supply is still green, but it won't turn on either on just battery or just supply or both. I didn't download anything the last time I used it, just a bit of footy manager, watched a couple of episodes of simpsons online listened to some stuff on itunes and thats it. Nothing's been spilt on it and I am at a loss to understand why it isn't working.

I doubt its that common a problem - I rang Dell and short of opening it up they didn't really know what to do. I tried taking the battery out and holding down the power button for 10-15 seconds then trying to turn it on again, but it didn't work. If anyone knows anything that can help, please let me know, and save me the journey to the repair shop and the millions of pounds they'll charge me.

Acer :: My Aspire One Won't Turn Off!
I'm having a problem with my Acer Aspire One A150.

The system won't shut down, and just restarts if I try and turn it off.

I have to pull the battery out if I want it to turn off.

When I plug the battery in, it turns on straight away without me having to press the power button.

Also the system won't work off the Mains Power only (with battery removed).

If I plug just the power lead in, the power light flickers and the system keeps clicking until I unplug it again.

The system works with the power lead only if the battery is plugged in as well.
