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
Running video through:
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 :: HP- Screen- Turn Off

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 :: 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 :: 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 :: 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 :: 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 :: 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 :: 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 :: Studio 1535 Will Not Turn On
My left mouse button on my touchpad of my dell studio 1535 was loose, so I opened up the bottom case to SEE if there was anything I could do.....
I QUICKLY determined there was NOT anything I could do, so I closed it back up and turned it on....ONLY it did NOT turn on....NOTHING...no screen, no lights, no noises....and the battery is fully charged and I tried with the power cord plugged in.....
Dell :: Inspiron 9400 Does Not Turn On!
My inspiron 9400 will not boot. The only functions I can see is the battery light comes on when plugged in to indicate that it is charging, and when I press the power button the power light comes on for 5 seconds then goes off, thats it.
I thought this problem was the board earlier, so I replaced it with a tested motherboard and am having the same problem.
I have also tried booting with just AC adaptor and just battery, no change. Right now my only idea is the CPU, is this feasible? Can somebody help me with this?
Dell :: D630 Wont Turn On
My d630 wont start. Whenever i push the power button, the power led lights up, hdd starts but the display stays black. And then, after few seconds i can hear the hdd turning off (it makes this funny "click") and the whole notebook powers off.
I disassembled it few times already. I kept unplugging one part after another trying to power up the notebook after ever one. Finally, with both ram modules (genuine, no upgrades) taken out it powers up, but of course won't boot...
There are now two problems:
1. Both ram modules worked already for some time.
2. The notebook powers up and boots into win xp from time to time and everything seems ok, till it dies after around one hour, sometimes more. This opts against corrupted ram...
Dell :: How To Turn Off Fingerprint Reader
I got an E4300 through work and set up the fingerprint reader at the request of my IT department, but I hate this stupid thing. It never works and I always have to manually override it.
I asked them to take it off, but it's "firm policy" for our laptops to have the reader turned on.
Anyone know how to turn it off? It's controlled through Dell ControlPoint and maybe a proprietary program we have.
Dell :: Vostro 1500 Will Not Turn On
Just recently i opened my laptop up and got it out of sleep, i opened up the game world of warcraft , and as i was logging in, it froze and made loud noises constantly so i turned it off right away, and tried to reboot a few min later but no dice.
when i push the power button the power led comes on as well as the upper keyboard leds, the caps lock led flashes, idk if that means anything, but nothing from there, screen is blank and no hard drive seems to be spooling. The power brick led remains on when i plus it into the laptop and i have tried it without battery, ram, HD, and such but it won't start
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.
Acer :: How Can I Turn Off BIOS Password
I recently upgraded my laptop to Windows 7 through a clean install. Now I must have enable something I didn't want to because now it asks to put a password in before it boots. I know the password, that's not the problem.
The problem is I'd rather not have it ask me, and there's always a danger of it locking up on me if it gets input incorrectly.
So my question is, how do I turn it off? I did a clean install so I don't have most of the crap Acer throw in, including eManagement Settings, which I heard may have the solution to my problem. I only have the Acer Bio Protection, the fingerprint reader, and I tried turning it off there, but to no avail.
Sony :: TZ Won't Turn On
I have a Sony TZ which was run over by a car a few weeks back. The only issue at first was the screen was cracked - it turned on and I had been using it with the broken screen for a couple weeks with no issues.
Todya my replacement screen arrived and I replaced it and now it won't turn on at all. What could I have done to cause that? Any ideas? Will it be repairable if I take it to a shop for less than the cost of a replacement (TT I guess)?
Sony :: Laptop- Didnt Turn On
Ive been having a problem with my laptop since Friday. Basically i went to turn it on and it didnt turn on so i cleaned all the dust out of the charger and my battery and tried it again and it managed to turn on. However, after being on it for around 15 minutes it just cut out on me. And now every time i go on it, it cuts out after a little while of it being on. I then cant turn it on for around an hour then it manages to turn on and then cut off and im back to square one.
Its nothing to do with the charger because that works fine so its clearly something to do with the hardware. Has anyone had problems like this before and is it easy to sort out?

Dell :: Inspiron 6000 Wont Turn On
I came home lastnight to my laptop turn off. I thought this was odd because it is hardly ever turned off. When I went to turn it back on nothing happened. I then notice that the gree light on the charger was also off. So I unplugged the charger from the wall and the computer, then plugged it back into the outlet. Now the green light is on, however when i plug it into the laptop the green light turns off and I have nothing from the computer. Seems like I have an electrical problem here. Anyone heard of this happening before or have any advice. The computer is about 5years old so I no longer have a warrenty.
