HP/Compaq :: DM3T Screen Dimming Randomly


I just got a HP DM3T and so far it is great, except for one thing. For some reason when on battery power the brightness seems to randomly darken (not turn off) and then it will lighten back up when I go to a different program or page. I am sure this is some sort of power saving feature but it is driving me crazy. Is there any way to disable this feature so when on battery the screen stays the same brightness? I apologize if this issue has been covered already, I must not be searching with the right terms. . .

HP/Compaq :: 8510p Has Lost Screen Dimming/brightening Functions
I have an HP Compaq 8510p, T7300, running Windows XP Pro. In the last day or so I noticed that pressing the fn+Fx key combos to dim or brighten the screen are no longer working. Nor is the battery status key combo. Volume and mute seem fine. Wireless is fine. The "Info" and "Presentation" keys as well as the sleep combo all appear to be working as usual. But the 3 mentioned above have stopped working. Has anyone had this issue or have any idea what the problem might be?

Dell :: Dimming Screen On SXPS 1340
Does anyone's screen dim itself every now and then? I don't know if it's a defect in the screen or maybe a bug in Quickset or something else, but occasionally my screen just dims a few levels.

Quickset shows it still maxed out and lowering it a notch and raising it back up using the keyboard shortcuts makes it go back to normal.

Dell :: M1530 Screen Left Side Dimming When Idle
I've had my M1530 for about 5 months and in the last few days and have had a problem with the screen.

Twice in the last 3-4 days I have come home from work to find the left hand side of the screen substantially dimme(darker.

The screen was left on regular settings, no screen saver etc. Within 5 minutes of use the left hand side of the screen had returned to normal brightness..

HP/Compaq :: HP Dm3t Configuration
These laptops are equipped with the CULV processors from Intel. However, the highest processor upgrade option, the Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo Processor SP9300 (2.26GHz, 6M Cache) does not appear to be a CULV. According to Intel's website, it runs on 25 volts, rather than the 10 volts the other processors for this laptop run on. Considering that battery life is one of the primary reasons for me purchasing this laptop,I am concerned as to how that will effect battery life. Could someone shed some light on this issue?

Portability and battery life is a necessity. However, I am concerned that the Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo Processor SU7300(1.3GHz,3M Cache) will not be enough processor to be used as my primary computer. I do not demand a lot from my computer; I typically run several tabs in Google Chrome and run Microsoft Word simultaneously. Occasionally, I also use websites like Hulu that would demand more of a processor. My main concern is this laptops ability to be my primary computer and its longevity due to the smaller processor.

HP/Compaq :: Dm3t Vs Probook 4320s
I recently ordered a dm3t with pretty much all the upgrades during one of the sales.

Pretty much the same day I did that, the probook 4320s showed up on their website.

I'm trying to decide if I should return the dm3t and order one of the probooks. Right now the probook doesn't offer the discreet 512mb graphics card or 64 bit OS as choice but the customer support people say it will become available soon.

Basically I just dont know if it's worth the extra money for things like a better cpu, gpu, DVD, and fingerprint scanner.

HP/Compaq :: HP DM3T Battery Life Well Short Of 10 Hours
I have the following set-up on my DM3T that is getting 4.5-5 hours of battery life at a maximum with light use, ie: lowest screen brightness, wifi off, word processing. I am not running any background programs (anti-virus) or anything else that is resource intensive.

SU4100 1.3ghz 2MB L2 cache
4gb DDR3 ram
320gb 5400rpm HD

Why am I getting less than 5 hours of battery life on a unit with low specs that is supposed to get "up to" 10 hours?? Is this consistent with what everyone else is getting? Battery bar currently says that my battery's 'full lifetime' is 4:58. I just returned an Acer timeline that had the same processor and 3gb of ram instead of 4, and that thing was getting 8-10 hours easily.

HP/Compaq :: Mini User Review Of ThePavilion Dm3t With SP9300 + G105M Graphics
Prior to 2006, there was a distinct difference between Apple and the PC industry. Apple specialized in design, and still does, and the PC industry won over customers by wooing them with the best bargain available—features for the price charged—and almost always at the cost of a pedestrian design. In 2006, in an ambitious bid to gain market share, HP launched a massive and hugely successful marketing campaign known as, “The Computer Is Personal Again,” and redesigned all of its laptops with the extremely popular high-gloss Imprint finish. In less than 2 years, HP unseated Dell as the undisputed leader in PC shipments and maintains that lead today.

3 years later, HP is back again (perhaps) to change the game. Borrowing from design cues from Apple’s Macbook Pro line, HP launched the dm3 in late October and the tm2 earlier this month, with designs that feature a brushed aluminum finish. Is it successful? Read more to find out.

How this laptop was purchased

I had shopped for a while to look for a new computer to replace my aging dv6000t from back in the Windows XP days. My options were the HP Pavilion dm3t and the Sony VAIO CW. I visited a Best Buy to check out some of the laptops, and I can say that I was absolutely repulsed by the build quality of the Dells these days. They suck. Period. What really won me over from the Sony CW was the build quality of the dm3t. The aluminum finish really is outstanding. More on that later................

Acer :: 8920G - Randomly Turns Off/has A Blue Screen
for the past 3 days my Acer 8920G has been acting..very strange. It randomly turns off/has a blue screen, then I can't use it for 6-10 hours before it works again, but then only for 30 min then repeats. I've checked the temperatures for the HDD/CPU/GPU on the time I was on, and the HDD was 58C, CPU and GPU were around 50C (With FF3.5, iTunes, MSN and Vuze running). I've taken off the back panel and removed the dust but that didn't do anything at all. This morning I turned it on after leaving it upside down (back panel on) to vent all the air (if I left it open more dust would've gone in) and it wouldn't even hit the desktop. Kept crashing when it hits the desktop (that's basically what happens when I try and turn it on after it has a blue screen or turns off). So I opened the back panel and let my hand hover over the components - no heat what so evr radiated from it, which means it can't have overheated...right? Now I can only run it with the back panel off, which I'm doing now in a well ventilated area.

HP/Compaq :: HP Pavilion DM3Z Series Or DM3T Series For Adobe Photoshop
my friend is thinking about purchasing a new laptop for his mother. The HP DM3 laptops look to the best solution so far since they are both lightweight and have great battery life, something he thinks she'll appreciate. One thing i'm not sure about is their ability to run Adobe Photoshop CS4 smoothly.

I don't use Photoshop very often and when I do, it's on my laptop, which is pretty decent in terms of specifications. Will the program run fine on a laptop with a Intel CULV or AMD Neo processor and integrated graphics? Which leads me to my next question:

Which Pavilion laptop would you recommend? Are they both similar to each other than the processors?

Dell :: Perpetual Dimming Backlight
I have a Dell XPS M1330 and have tried to find a solution for a screen that just doesn't want to stay at it's brightest setting.
I have adjusted all Battery profiles (including the "on battery" setting) and the screen seems to adjust to lowest background light settings every time I close the lid to my laptop.

I have adjusted all known settings for this, and still no resolution to the problem! Every time I close the lid to my laptop, windows makes a dis-connect sound (notification), you know, the sound it makes when you dis-connect a thumb drive or other USB connection.

HP/Compaq :: HP Elitebookscreen Goes Black/dark Randomly
I've only had my HP Elitebook 8530w for a few months now and is my first laptop. I love just about everything about it. However: Recently I have had problems with the screen going out on me every so often. It just randomly goes very dark, to the point where it looks like its off, but I can still see VERY slightly whatever I was working on before. Has anyone experienced this and possibly knows what could be going on? (it just did it again. 3 times in a one hour sitting)

Whatever anyone can suggest would be awesome. I'm not to savvy about laptop hardware and such, so i'm a little ignorant when it comes to troubleshooting this issue,

I forgot to mention. Here's some specs.

Core2 Duo T9550
15.4" WUXGA
GFX nVid FX770 512
RAM 4GB DDR2 2DM
HDD 250G at 7200rpm
standard 8 cell battery

HP/Compaq :: DV4 Seemingly Randomly Going Into Hibernate Mode
i just picked up the new laptop (specs below in sig) and have noticed a few hiccups.

I just got it yesterday, and when initially setting it up, that silly "HP start up" software seemed to lock up more then once (with the silly hands moving around n blah blah blah.) Well eventually had to restart and with that crap out of the way, set things up normally. Got everything updated. Wifi's working well, all windows updates out of the way, etc.

However during all this 2 times my computer randomly went into hibernate mode. It wasn't like I'd left it idle for long. I mean i may have left it go for a minute or two w/o interacting with it (while it was plugged in.) I had also altered the power settings to not go into sleep or hibernate while it was plugged in , which it was.

I could tell it hibernated by the start up screen saying "resuming windows." Well as an experiment after playing around with power settings and so forth, i left it on all nite while plugged in. In the morning today it was still on and running fine.

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 :: Dv5t Sound Randomly Make A Static Boom Noise
if anyone has had sound issues with their DV5? I have the current bios F13 and have un-installed and reinstalled sound drivers and such. What is happening is the sound will randomly make a static boom noise and then go away and then do it again.. i have checked my external speaks and have even replaced them thinking it was them.. it is not since it is happening with my onboard speakers as well. So this static boom sound is a constant annoyance along with music sounding rather off/staticy..

HP/Compaq :: Dv2700t- Wireless... Caused Blue Screens/crashes Randomly While Using Internet
I had a dv2700t, with a problem I described in this forum some time ago... I didn't manage to solve the problem and HP couldn't/wouldn't "fix" it... the problem was that the wireless... caused blue screens/crashes randomly while using internet (downloading large and small torrent files for example) this happened ONLY when using WIRELESS connection.

I now, after nagging on HP for months, own a dv7-1290.

Imagine my surprise when I get the same problem...the only difference that I've been able to discern between this problem and the old problem is that this computer doesn't crash the UBUNTU live cd that the other computer managed to do......

HP/Compaq :: HP HDX 16Touch Buttons Faulty- Adjusts Volume/bass And Turns Off Wireless Randomly
if anyone has had the same problem as me with the HP HDX 16. Randomly, even as I am typing here, the volume bar (with treble, bass etc) will appear on screen and will increase/reduce very quickly as if im pushing down on the touch buttons, this stops me being able to type, sometimes crashing the computer.

At the same time, this fault also occurs for the wireless LAN button to the far right, which will randomly disable (turn red) as if i'd touched it, sometimes causing the desktop to crash but more importantly causing me to lose connection and have to reconnect on a frequent basis.

I've had the notebook for over 6 months, and while i did have this occur on very rare occasions, since a couple days ago it has increased to a point where it happens all the time, including after a restart. I have tried searching through google to see if the problem is known, and i have seen a similar account on a customer review website. I have used HP health check and followed the updates supplied including that for the touch smart buttons and a BIOS flash.

Dell :: Studio 17 Randomly Going To Sleep
I've been having this issue for about a week or so. I thought perhaps it was because I updated the ATI driver, but I did a rollback and the issue still persists.

I have checked my battery settings and nothing stands out. I don't have my laptop set to go to sleep under any circumstances other then closing the lid, but during operation it will just go to sleep.

Has anyone else experienced this issue? I'm running Windows 7 64-bit. When it goes to sleep, sometimes the power button is unresponsive in waking the computer back up. It will take quite a while before I am able to do anything to get the computer back up and running.

Dell :: XPS M1330 Randomly Beeps
My brand new m1330 (I've had it less than a week) has been making a high pitched beeping noise completely randomly. I havn't noticed any pattern in when it makes the noise either, whether it be plugged in, on battery, plugged in without a battery, battery settings on power saver, battery settings on performance, none of it makes a difference.

The kind of beep seems random as well, sometimes it is a single beep, other times it is a few beeps strung together like a chirping noise.

Nothing happens on screen when the beeps occur either. I've done some googling, and cant find an answer to why its beeping.

I guess my primary concern would be if this is a problem, and if i need to contact dell about it. Or, if anyone else has experienced this, and whether or not there is an easy fix for it. Its kind of annoying, and I've gotten a few funky looks in class.

Dell :: Laptop Randomly Freezes
I have a strange issue I was hoping one of you could help me solve. I have a dell latitude d620.

I bought this laptop used and always had some issues with it. At first the machine used to have some random power failure, where i would plug it in and the screen would go black. So I went ahead and replaced the motherboard.

Now after many months I took the machine to work and when i got home it will randomly freeze. I went ahead and tried a different harddrive, with the same result. So I tried to reformat the drives and it occurs on both as well

Acer :: 5315 Randomly Shuts Down
In the past week, my aspire 5315 running vista premium 32bit has been randomly shutting off for what seems like no apparent reason. There's no warning of the shut down, it just turns off. It does this whether connected to the internet or not, and there isn't any one program that's the common denominator. Also, it doesn't boot up successfully every time (maybe 1 out of every 4 attempts). Instead, it just stays on a black screen with a single white blinking horizontal dash (the character two spaces to the left of the backspace button + shift). The computer had started doing this initially when I installed the latest update through Windows Update. I used System Restore and the problem seemed to be fixed. Then the problem started again a couple days later while watching "Lost" on ABC.COM. I ran Windows Defender and it didn't come up with anything.

I've tried running Kaspersky a few times, but the computer shuts down well before the scan is finished (even in safe mode). Any ideas as to what the problem could be?

Sony :: Vaio Z Keeps Shutting Off Randomly
I use a Vaio Z (VGNZ690) which has a tendency to shut off randomly when it is unplugged, even when it has a charge left in the battery. When this happens, I'll be able to turn the computer back on, but usually it'll shut down again very soon into the boot process.

These fits of turning off usually come and go in bursts - there might be a 10 minute period in which I won't be able to get the computer to turn on, but after that it'll be fine. Additionally, the computer seems more likely to turn off when I move it (all of these shutdowns have occurred when the Vaio is operating off the battery).

I'm also pretty sure my computer isn't overheating.

So basically, the machine just shut off and when I try to turn it on the numlock button lights up, and the caps lock and scroll lock buttons flash. This lasts for about 30 seconds, and then all power shuts off. Nothing comes up on the screen, and it doesn't even sound like it is trying to work. I've checked all connections, reseated/thermal greased CPU, everything I could think of.

Acer :: 6920G Performance Halving Randomly
my several-month old 6920G (running on vista 32bit, no hardware upgrades) has had a problem for the entire time i've owned it. Its performance seems to halve temporarily whenever i run a demanding program on it(Battlefield 2 at medium-high video settings), and it switches back and forth between normal and half its performance, staying at half for ~10-20minutes and full for 5-10, on average.

The laptop already has most of the annoying acer programs disabled as well as DWM, anything usually safe to remove.

Is this problem caused by stressing the laptop out too much? I played the same game with slightly lower settings, on my (equally computer-inexperienced) friend's sony vaio laptop(cant remember the model) with the same amount of RAM and 1.8GHz processor, and the performance was constant! (and at times better 3: )

Also, ive noticed that my advanced power settings on High Performance Plan changed on their own to default the 2nd time, and the lowest setting of the processor power management the first time.. although it hasnt happened since the first month, and the performance issue is still biting me in the behind..

Dell :: Inspiron 1525 DVD Drive Randomly Ejecting

When it's full it sometimes flashes and runs autorun. After it flashes it also ejects half the time, and also it'll just eject randomly without any warning or loading noises.

I explained the problem to Dell and they sent me a replacement DVD drive, but the problem still happens, so I'm guessing it's not the DVD drive itself.

Does anyone have any ideas on how I could solve this problem?

Acer :: New 6930 Randomly Shutting Down On Me During Windows Updates
Just got the laptop today. Went to Windows Updates out of the box and boom, it shuts down. A LOT. I managed to get the 64 bit updates in but it keeps shutting down for the rest. System Restore doesn't seem to manner.

The bottom of the laptop is hot to the touch after 2 hours worth of idle usage spent on updating windows....

Specs
Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T6400
4GB (2/2) DDR2 667 SDRAM
320GB hard drive
Blu-ray Disc Drive
9600
NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GS

The only changes I've made is removing some annoying bloatware, but I didn't expect problems this fast and this early.

I hope this is not a heating issue because I would hesitate to get a replacement. 6930 owners...have you had this problem before. Does it get hot a lot? I hope it doesn't explode if I try to play Left 4 Dead on it.

maybe Acer has a new driver for the 5100?

Apple :: Randomly / Rarely Jumpy MM (and Once Trackpad) Pointer Motion
I have recently noted that, sometimes (randomly and rarely for the time being), the pointer of my bluetooth MM (Mighty Mouse) moves farther than what I was expecting it to move. This happened probably in concomitance with the opening of some application (Iphoto once). In other words, it appeared to me that the pointer accelerated more than what I demanded it to move with the displacement of the mouse. It was not really a uncontrolled jump (as it sometimes happens with optical mice) but like a transitory but self-contained loss of pointer control.

I believe that a similar event occurred also once with the trackpad pointer when I went to the bottom of the screen to make dock appear in concomitance with a skype call launch....the pointer seemed to move fast to the right although I am quite sure it was not my finger to command this motion on the pad.

I have tried (with respect to MM) to delete and recreate the bluetooth .plist but it did not prevent from having this occurrence (note also that the batteries are OK).
I have read in some other forum, here in this site, that this might be due to OSX pointer acceleration (not perfect) management.

Dell :: Studio XPS 16Touchpad Does Not Respond Randomly After Waking From Sleep Mode
Really odd issue. My touchpad does not respond at all after I wake the computer from sleep mode. The mouse buttons do not work and the touchpad is completely impossible to get to move. The only solution is to shut down the computer entirely and turn it back on.

Does anyone else have this issue? I've re-installed the mouse drivers and it keeps doing it. There is no way to re-create the problem; it just happens totally randomly (and usually very inconveniently).

Dell :: Studio 15 Fan Running At Maximum RPM "randomly"
for those who own the Studio 15 and have been unlucky enough to experience the spontaneous loud fan that occasionally turns on. By "occasionally" I mean almost all the time and by "loud" I mean full blast for hours on end. This problem may persist whether the machine is running the A02, 03, or 05 BIOS and can be extremely frustrating, especially in a quiet environment such as a library or lecture hall. It doesn't appear to be a software issue or a BIOS issue since the problem persists with any version. It is in now way related to dust or high temperatures.

I recently noticed that applying pressure in the area of interest (circled in red) seems to activate the fan into running at maximum RPM; at the same time you may observe that taking pressure off the area of interest makes the fan stop immediately (or soon after, presumably because the plastics bend back into shape). I am not sure whether this problem is the result of the motherboard (which observably flexes) or that pictured screw or whether something is making contact underneath the keyboard, but I thought I'd share this bit of information with others who may be as frustrated as I am with this problem. I will be dismantling the entire computer soon to look closer into the issue.

it also appears that gently bending the laptop mainboard upwards (when the laptop is sitting normally on a desk, not upside down) stops the fan immediately.

HP/Compaq :: Dim Screen
I just logged on an my screen is dim. It looks like it's in power saver mode but i didn't set it that way and can't get it to brighten. What gives?

I also have a red X next to my speaker that I can't get rid of either. Am I having a system wide malfunction or are there cornish pixies in my machine?
