HP/Compaq :: CQ61-220SA- Specs For Game

Feb 6, 2010

I have a Compaq CQ61-220SA Laptop with a 1.8 GHz Intel Celeron DualCore Mobile Processor T3000 cpu and Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD Graphics on which I have Win 7 32 bit.

I've bought a copy of Red Alert 3 which states that it needs an Intel P4 2.6GHz cpu for Vista and 256MB Graphics with a NVidia Geforce G800 or greater chipset or an ATI Radeon X800 or greater chipset.

The shop has said as long as I don't break the seal on the game I can return it if it's not compatible with my laptop and so I need some advice please as to whether the specs I've got are sufficient to run this game?

if this laptop will run this game?

HP/Compaq :: Would These Specs Run A Game Like Fallout 3

May 17, 2009

a laptop I returned to costco since it couldnt run some games. I went to Costco.com to see about building a laptop from HP through Costco. I went with these specs, its already almost $200 over budget and my wife might veto it haha but let me know if you think this could run fallout 3 at least on decent settings.

Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo Processor T6600 (2.2GHz)
3GB DDR2 Memory
250GB HDD (good enough size, I rely on a server in my house for main storage)
256MB NVIDIA GeForce 9200M GE

That comes out to $744.99 and it doesnt appear to have tax, which will help. I'd like to run simple games like Halo 2 PC, Fallout 3 and maybe even Gears of War if I felt frisky. I'm not looking to run anything like Crysis. Thats the only GPU I can choose other than the onboard. I upgraded the Processor from the T6600 for $51.00, would it make $50 worth of a difference?

HP/Compaq :: Installing XP On CQ61 After W7

Feb 26, 2010

I'm trying to install XP on my machine after I fried old HD that had W7 installation. I bought new HD but i only have XP CD so i figured I'll install XP so far to get the PC up and ruining, and upgrade to W7 once i find by back-up CD.

My new HD is picked up by machine, and CD starts with installation, copying files from the CD, but only up to the point where it is supposed to start with windows installation.

At that point I get blue screen and message telling me i do not have HD or it is incorrectly installed and that I should run check disk. I've run BIOS scan, and HD is present and scans OK. Is it possible that previous install of W7 is memorized somewhere in BIOS and it is not allowing me to install XP even though HD is blank and brand new?

HP/Compaq :: Presario CQ61-305SA CPU Upgrade

Nov 29, 2009

just wondering about doing a CPU upgrade on the above laptop, the current CPU is an AMD Sempron M100. I'm not to up on my AMD cpu's so not sure what the best upgrade would be. Also, what does the bios support, as there are many CPU's that will fit the S1 socket, but I guess not all will be supported in the bios, so does anyone have any knowledge on this.

HP/Compaq :: System Recovery Failed CQ61

Feb 1, 2010

My Compaq Presario CQ61-110SA kept on crashing wiht the blue screen error so yesterday i had some time on my hands so i thought I would do a full system recovery in order to stop this nuisence from happening, however I wish I had read the problems associated with the HP recovery manager first as now I have no OS and a recovery manager that dosn't work.

At the moment I am using the recovry manger pre installed on the hard drive however it gets to installing the drivers, and after about an hour a pop up comes up for about half a second saying a about a driver install or dont install (it looks similair to th etype of pop up on vista when a new program wants to run) however due to it poping up so quickly and then going I cannot see what the actual driver is let alone choose an option, after this it says recovery has failed the error code c:system.savlogsBurnBootwarn.log it states the error was detected during PINIST_BBV , when i opened the log file it seemed all the drivers had succeded but [mini_FBI] resilt failed, I have tried doing the recovery with the wireless button on as I heard this could be the cause but still it didn't work, I have recovery discs that i burned however My laptop wont seem to boot fom disk even though I have changed the BIOS and put harddrive at the bottom and the disc at the top.

HP/Compaq :: DV4T? (Specs Inside)

Jun 11, 2009

I was looking at the HP DV4T with specs:

-Moonlight white
-Vista 64bit
-P8600 2.4Ghz or I can up it to the P8700 2.53Ghz
-4 GB Ram
-320 GB Hard Drive 5400 RPM
-512MB Nvidia GeForce G 105M
-14.1" diagonal WXGA High-Definition HP LED BrightView Widescreen (1280 x 800) LED for better battery life.
-Intel Next-Gen Wireless-N Mini-card with Bluetooth
-High Capacity 6 Cell Lithium Ion Battery

I was wondering what you all think about this set up, or if I should tweak anything with like the processor.

Also how does this laptop run in your experience. Hot or loud? What does it score on performance index with these specs if anyone has them? Are there any concerns I should know about or tips. Like does the optical drive pull out if not using to save weight or add another hard drive? Maybe even steer me to another direction if you would like.

Also I have never owned a laptop before, but my friends use an external monitor when home. What do you all think about getting one?

This laptop will be for everything, school, entertainment, causal games.

HP/Compaq :: DV5Z- Laptop, And The Specs

Apr 22, 2009

My last computer was the HP DV5Z, which I LOVED. It was the perfect size, did everything i needed it for, and was an overall great choice.

Unfortunately, 1) My laptop was stolen when my apartment was broken into , and 2) they no longer sell the dv5z on hp.com

Now, I am for sure going to order my laptop from hp.com, so I need to know what you guys would recommend.

I will use my laptop for gaming, research, college, and DVD burning.

I am almost positive I want the slightly bigger dv6z, and thats my main choice.

However, I'm not sure how big of a difference performance in CPU is, if 4 gigs of ram is REALLY worth it over 3gigs of ram, whats the benefit of the wireless-N card over G, and how come all the coupons are used up

HP/Compaq :: DV5 Slower Than Exchanged Laptop (but Better Specs)

Jul 6, 2009

I bought a toshiba, dual core pentium T3400, 2.16ghz, 3gb ram, 250gb HD...and it was lightning fast when surfing the web...but returned it because i got a killer deal on an HP DV5, core 2 duo, T5800, 2.0 ghz, 4gb ram, 250gb HD...

I was told by the salesperson, and a friend, that the new hp should be slightly faster than the exchanged toshiba. However, i noticed that the toshibsa was significantley faster than this one. I visited the same websites, and where the toshiba took 1 second to load a certain page, the new hp takes 3 seconds. Is this because of the 2.0 vs 2.16 ghz difference? bloatware?

HP Compaq CQ61-415SA OS/Software :: Notebook Stopped Working But Lights Blinking

Dec 11, 2014

I have a Compaq CQ61-415SA and it seems to have stopped working. I turned it on and it was working fine, then I left it whilst doing something else for a couple of hours, it wasn't attached to the mains supply and when I went to use it the following happened.

When you turn it on the DVD drive tries to access and a fan comes on, that's as far as it goes. The power light stays on, the power lead light comes on and stays on, the two blinking lights blink once then pause then repeat. I have read that this is probably a hardware issue, is that right and what is the next step? I have disconnected the battery and held down the power switch for 20 seconds, but nothing happens.

HP Compaq Presario CQ61-313us Networking :: Internet Error - Gateway Timeout

Feb 3, 2014

I have a Compaq Presario CQ61-313us notebook, and i've just installed windows 8.1, then i realized there was a problem with my Internet, every time i open a website, i always get either a page like this: [URL] ... , or i get "Error: Gateway Timeout", though i can get to the website if i refresh a few times, but it's extremely slow.

Also, i can't download anything, I've been trying to download the .NET Framework 3.5 through Windows Features and windows Update, but in vain. I think that proves that the problem isn't from IE. I also think that it's the wireless driver's fault, but i'm not sure, and i don't know what driver to download. I tried updating it from the properties meny, but it says it's up to date. My wireless adaptor is Qualcomm Atheros AR9285 802.11b|g|n, V3.0.1.155.

Update: I think it's worth noting that when i download with utorrent, it downloads normally with my regular download speed, but other than that, i can't download anything.

HP Compaq Presario CQ61-417SA Lockups :: Notebook PC Freezes At Random Times

Dec 6, 2014

I have a Compaq Presario CQ61-417SA Notebook PC operating on Windows 7 Home Premium. The laptop freezes at random times, sometimes minutes into use or an hour into use. It is not caused by clicking a certain program or file. I suspect freeze issue maybe caused by hardware failure, possibly the HDD.
 
Here's a few observations of the laptop and the things I've tried to diagnose or fix it. During a typical hang the HDD LED light is constantly lit. Have also had both blue screen and black screen freeze. No error messages. Hard drive gets very hot. Entered BIOS and run both Primary Hard Disk Self-Test and Memory Test using InsydeH20 Setup Utility but it passed both.Laptop has been fully reset to factory settings so it can't be because of high CPU usage.

While idle the CPU usage is usually in the range of 13%-25%, with a rare spike of 53%The hard drive is a Western digital Scorpio Black 2.5" 320GB SATA. The laptop is unused so wiping it back to original settings wasn't an issue but I would like to get it back to a useable standard.

HP Compaq Presario CQ61 Display :: Black Screen On Power Up - BIOS Corruption Failure?

Nov 15, 2012

I have a Compaq Presario CQ61 Product: VM9496Q2X Model: CQ61-319WM, that has a black screen when I power up.  The wifi button stays red and the caps lock flashes twice.  I believe this indicates a BIOS corruption failure.  I have tried resetting by unplugging and removing the battery, and holding the power button for 30 seconds.  I have tried the f8 key and the esc repeatedly at power up. I have also tried pressing the windows and B key along with the power key but nothing worked.

HP Compaq Presario CQ61-420US Lockups :: System Not Booting / Black Screen With Blinking Lights

Apr 21, 2014

I have a compaq presario CQ61-420US with similar problems below, except I have a black screen, fan turns blinking lights are the same (num lock and cap lock) but they are flashing continuously every second or 2.  I have tried the hard reset with the ram fix,  connecting an external monitor, changing the battery, and the power adapter to no avail. I also used compressed air on the vents just in case was stuffed with dust since it will overheat and may cause problems, but nothing.

One option I can think of is purchasing a new MotherBoard, but I'm trying anything else before that.

HP Compaq Presario CQ61 Recovery :: Black Screen - Numlock And Capslock Lights Blinking Twice Every Couple Of Seconds

Jul 22, 2014

I have a problem with my Compaq Presario CQ61-325ED. It won't boot. What I see is a black/blank screen, with the numlock and capslock lights blinking twice every couple of seconds.
 
According to the blink codes, it seems the BIOS has been corrupted [URL] ....  Sadly, no adequate solution is given on that page.Win + B  or Fn + B at startup does nothing, pressing all the arrow keys gives me a continuous blinking pattern (edit: I can't seem to replicate this anymore...). I have also tried creating a bootable USB-stick with a BIOS update, but I don't think I have done it correctly, for it never gets activated (the light on the USB never turns on).

Also, removing/resetting the RAMs or just one of the RAMs does not work. Neither does removing/resetting the CMOS battery. How to successfully create a bootable USB-stick with BIOS update for CQ61-325ED?

HP/Compaq :: HDX16 - Game Is Being Read Off Of My HDD Not Off Of A DVD

Sep 12, 2009

my HP HDX16 has the following specs:
2.4ghz Core 2 Duo 3MB Cache
4 gigs 1066mhz Ram
9600M GT GPU 512MB DDR3
500 gig 5400 RPM HDD

Now this computer does everything i need it to and more. But I have noticed something...In Call of Duty 4 I notice that sometimes it stutters during running to a mission and during intense firefights. This game is being read off of my HDD not off of a DVD.

Could the stuttering be attributed to my 5400rpm being a bottleneck?
