HP/Compaq :: Presario C500 C551nrReplacing Wireless Mini-pcie Card With SSD

May 25, 2009

I'm thinking about picking up a usb wireless n adapter; which means I won't be needing the internal wireless nic. Since that's a mini PCIe slot, I was wondering if anyone has tried replacing that with one of the many SSDs floating around the web...

2 main questions I have about those:

If they're mini-pciE, why are there sata versions and pata versions out there? There's no sata or pata connector on these cards it seems, the pci-e connector is all there is. Do they somehow use the sata/pata controller on the motherboard via the pci-e bus?

2nd question; would there be any way to boot from one of these? The bios has a bunch of options for booting up, network, usb, usb floppy, etc... but none for mini pci-e or anything like that...

Laptop is a presario C500, more precisely c551nr, broadcom 802.11b/g nic, 80gb toshiba 5400rpm slow ..... hard drive, and a celery 440 running the show..

HP Compaq Presario CQ60 Networking :: Notebook Cannot Connect To Wireless Broadband

Oct 29, 2012

Basically just moved house and got Eircom broadband installed, my girlfriends laptop connected automatically, whereas my Compaq CQ60 Presario Notebook WindowsVista will not connect.I have checked so many different forums trying to fix this problem, but to no avail im afraid... it looks like there is an excellent internet connection.... but cannot go on the internet because it says "Unidentified Network local access only"
 
The router I have is "atheros AR5007 802.11b/g WiFi adapter", and the o/s I have on my laptop is Windows Vista 32 bit.
 
In our previous residence we had UPC broadband, and I had no problems at all connecting.

HP/Compaq :: F730US HD Failed

Jan 3, 2009

Did the HD test and it failed, begins to boot but goes to black screen w/ cursor. What I was told when I called HP and from what I reasearched myself you can't just pop another HD in without encountering problems and even another dead HD. Is it the software in the laptop or are some HDs not compatible? Is there an HD that I can use without having issues? The old HD is a Samsung HM 121 Hl 120GB 5400 SATA-150.

HP/Compaq :: DV6000 Failed Mobo Or HDD

Jan 15, 2009

I've got a DV6000 here that seems to have some sort of motherboard or HDD problem.

I load up an XP Pro installation and everything seems to work fine until it gets to "Setup is now loading Windows" at which point the installation just hangs. Native SATA is turned off. Tried it twice, too.

I've tried the installation with a Windows 7 Beta DVD as well, and the installation also hangs shortly after Windows finishes loading its files. I tried Windows 7 with native SATA turned on and off.

I'm not 100% sure that the HDD is ok as I don't have anything with which to test it, but the installation will get past this point in my E6400.

I'm not that familiar with HP computers, so I'm wondering if I'm missing something obvious or if there's a hardware problem.

HP/Compaq :: Presario C500 Fan

Feb 15, 2010

My ancient C500 fan is noisy, a constant slight grindy noise. Its been like this for months and I cant take it anymore. Can I clean or replace it w/o too much trouble or is it time for a new laptop? Looks like I'd have to take off the whole bottom to get at it...which Iwill do, if it will shut the damn thing up.

HP/Compaq :: Presario 1500

Apr 18, 2010

i have a compaq presario 1500 with a pentium 4 running XP SP3 on it. I am having trouble with keeping it under a good heat, the fan is constantly running high! i know this needs a good clean but the screws to remove the back casing are so small for me to do this! any suggestions of how i can clean inside? or get to th fan through the top by the keyboard?

secondly it tends to crash every now and then, maybe when it overclocks on the cpu?? i am recently trying out a program called speedswitchXP which seems to be slowing it down to an extent! but not solving the issue.

thirdly and finally, my battery only holds charge for around 10 minutes before needing constant wall plugin! i constantly have it plugged into the wall, could this be a result to any of my problems?

HP/Compaq :: Presario Won't Boot

Dec 3, 2009

got a Presario V2000 that will not boot whatsoever.

Upon pressing the power button, the machine starts up and displays the standard "Windows could not start properly" screen. Every option I choose, from the three Safe mode options, to the Last Known Good Config, to Start Windows Normally will not work.

I choose an option and everything goes smoothly, the Windows XP splash screen pops up & stays there for a few seconds, then goes blanks for a slightly longer length of time before a blue screen pops up. I can't remember the first few numbers, but the rest I'm pretty sure is accurate:

(a series of letters/numbers is here) (Registry File Failure)

The registry cannot load the file
SysCommandSysCom32ConfigSOFTware
or its log or alternate
It is corrupt, (something I cant remember), or not writable

Beginning dump of physical memory
Physical memory dump complete
Contact your system administrator or technical assistance.

.....and it pretty much repeats over and over in a continuous cycle like this until I power it off.

What I'm wondering is where exactly the problem lies? On the Hard Drive--where the drive itself needs to be replaced or the OS just wiped and reinstalled fresh.......or is this indicative of a hardware failure...which would mean this lappy is pretty much dead?

HP/Compaq :: Presario V6305NR

Apr 2, 2009

On pressing start button, laptop starts, but blank screen comes. After every few seconds, it keeps on rebooting, but nothing happens.

I have tried pressing F10 and Esc button on startup, but nothing happens.

Moving finger over multimedia touch buttons causes them to beep.

Few times, it shows the BIOS, but does not detect the hard-drive.

Very rarely, everything works fine and OS boots and works fine (without any sign of problem).

I replaced RAMs, hard-drive and DVD Reader in other laptop and there they worked absolutely fine.

I even tried removing the battery, connecting external monitor, keyboard, but nothing worked.

BIOS version is F.3D.
When opened, CPU fan and heatsink were dustfree.

Product Specs: HP Presario V6305NR, 1.6 GHz AMD Turion 64 X2 Dual-Core Mobile Technology TL-50, 1024MB DDR2 System Memory (2 Dimm), NVIDIA GeForce Go 6150 (UMA)

HP/Compaq :: Presario V2000 AC

Apr 15, 2009

I have a Presario V2000.

After not using for about 1 week I turned it on so I could clean it from viruses.

Got the battery alert and then it shutdown meanwhile I was pluging the cord in (Targus AC cord with

blue light).

When I connected the AC to the power (not connected yet to the laptop) it "turned on" and still today

shows a blue light. But once I plug it to the laptop the blue light disappears after 3-5 seconds!

Not at the beginning nor the end of this process the laptop will turn on if I press the power button

for 'x' seconds. If I plug the cord, the computer doesn't show any "power light" and then the blue

light from the Targus AC fades off.................

HP/Compaq :: HP G50 & G60- Presario Cq-50 &60 VS. C700

Jan 18, 2009

I am so much happier with this notebook than I was with my Presario C714NR.

Why;
Upgraded Intel GMA 4500M 768MB Max VRAM VS. 384MB on C700 GMA x3100
Upgraded support for 8GB Max Memory VS. 3GB with the C700 **Some G/CQ's can only handle 4GB
15.6" Screen not really a big deal from the 15.4" C700
HDMI Port VS. none on the C700
Media Card is standard in the G series.. VS. optional in C700 series.
Discrete Graphics offerings available for the G series and CQ-Series VS. integrated only C700
G/CQ offers shiny black top finish. C700 More grainy finish.
Better gaming performance, however, not really a gaming laptop.

HP has made some great improvements to the Compaq offering, however compaq will always lack some of the premium features like FingerPrint reader......

HP/Compaq :: LCD- Presario F700

May 8, 2010

just yesterday i started having a bit of trouble with my screen. when I open it to a full position so it is at optimum tilt for viewing, the colors become slightly washed out and whites gain a blueish tinge, while blacks have this sort of red static/noise behind them. However, when i tilt the screen to a very acute angle, the colors return to normal. I think it might be a connection that got a little loosened- i dropped my laptop onto a car floor a few days ago while on a trip.

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 :: DV5-1155ee- Wireless Led Suddenly Orange Although Wireless Is Enabled

Jul 15, 2009

Windows Vista Ultimate SP2 (64-Bit) (problem is also there with Windows 7)

I sometimes try to connect to a network, then the wireless led suddenly orange although Wireless is Enabled. My friend who has an XP system can connect to that network in the cafe just fine so does everybody else, but on my system, it says connecting, then the icon turns orange as if there was no wirelesss card installed.

I am using the Intel WiFi Link 5100 AGN v12.2.0.11 Driver which was installed through Windows Update along with HP Wireless Assistant v3.50.2.1

Now I have an orange icon for wireless, although wireless is enabled in both device manager and through the touch key.

the icon will turn blue if I restart and wireless access will be restored, but I will lose it again if I try to connect to a wireless network.

HP/Compaq :: Presario C717NR Screen

Apr 15, 2010

if I opened the screen anymore than 4-5 inches, it would freeze half the screen and turn the over half into a complete jumbled mess. I ordered replacement screen about 2 months ago, and w/ me being lazy and all, it's been sitting on my office floor. I've been using the laptop daily, but instead it stays on my desk and is running through an Acer desktop monitor w/o any issues whatsoever.

So I brokedown and started installing the new screeen today, only to get this when I switched the output back over to the laptop:

It made an audible whining noise both times I switched over, so I quickly switched it off. At this point I'm wondering if the cable from the motherboard to the screen is the issue, but I don't wanna keep throwing parts at a computer this only cost me $250 brand new.

Also, when I finally get this figured out...I can't remember which plug this mic connector goes into.

It can either go here next to the keyboard cable or over here by the fan.

HP/Compaq :: Presario 2100 Locking Up

Mar 2, 2009

I have a Presario 2195U and it locks all the time. At first it seemed to do it at random, but then I noticed it would lock every time during installation of XP Service Pack 3, or other long laborious installations. Any time you hear the fan kick into overdrive it seems that it will lock up shortly after. It locked several times during the installation of Windows XP itself.

I hear the fan spinning, and I keep the system on a hard, flat surface to maximize airflow, but it will still lock up during larger-scale installations.

I ask if the issue could possibly stem from over-heating; the system reaches a certain temperature and locks as a fail-safe. I've also noticed that it will lock less frequently when the battery is removed. When I remove it, the battery is very warm, Perhaps the battery is absorbing some of the heat being produced in the system, contributing to the overall temperature inside the chassis?

I have since installed Ubuntu Linux on it and it locks MUCH less frequently, and from what I understand, Linux is much less CPU-intensive. I do like Linux, but it isn't suitable for what I use the system for.

If over-heating could be the issue, I'd like to purchase a better/more powerful fan, power draw isn't so much an issue as it's almost always plugged in.

The specifications for the system are:
CPU: AMD Athlon XP 1.8ghz
Memory: 1gb SDRAM
Graphics: ATI Radeon Mobile
HDD: 120gb
OS: Ubuntu 8.10

If the problem is indeed thermal-related, then comes the question of how do I open the chassis...

HP/Compaq :: My Presario Is Feeling Blue

May 2, 2009

I bought a Compaq Presario CQ60-211DX because it was cheap and I wanted a "backup" machine as I paid way too much for my MacBook to get "rough" with it (i.e. travel, put it in a full bookbag, take it to my school in a relatively high crime area, etc).

Well, basically you get what you pay for because this machine seems to run slower than molasses.

However, an annoying problem has popped up in that there seems to be a blue-streaked "tint" that started on pics and some video, that now exists on regular webpages as well. I haven't smashed the screen or spilled liquid on it. I have a 1 year warranty on it that's still good, but I'd rather try to fix it myself.

HP/Compaq :: Presario R4000- Window 7

Jul 14, 2009

I have Compaq Presario R4000 128MB graphic memory and 2GB memory. Now I am currently installed XP professional. Will I be able to install Window 7? If so, how could I install the drivers (VGA, network card, sound card and so on)? Should I just use Window XP drivers CD? I haven't tried with Window 7 RC 1 yet.

And for window 7, what's the difference between upgrade version and full version? Or is it the same if I have already window XP? I know only upgrade version is cheaper. Can I get clean installation with upgrade version? What about 32 bits and 64 bits, different CD or will it choose automatically?
