HP/Compaq :: Graphics Modes, Dv5t, Dv6t

Apr 11, 2009

From what I can tell from the HP website, the current version offered for the dv5t, called dv5tse (special edition), does not have an option for higher resolution graphics mode than WXGA (1280x800). However, it apparently used to have the option for WXGA+.
The website shows the 16" dv6t as offering only 1366x768 resolution. I think that's the 16:9 version of 1280x800 which is 16:10 aspect. Is that right?

Is this correct? Does one have to go to a 17" model on the HP lines to get WXGA+ or higher resolution?

HP/Compaq :: Dv5t Battery Won't Charge

Jan 18, 2010

My dv5t won't take a charge. The charge indicator light does not come on and the battery charge indicator graphic in windows doesn't show it is charging (plus the AC adapter isn't getting warm). My laptop is now out of charge and I have no way to use it. I think the connector at the PC end might be loose or something, but perhaps it is just the AC charge adapter.

The reason I say the conenctor at the laptop end might be loose it because I can wiggle the charging plug around in the socket quite a bit when it is plugged into the laptop power socket (the round socket at the rear of the right side). Sometimes the charge plug has weight on it when in my lap since the darn things sticks out so much, and I am wondering if I have caused the socket to malfunction internally (loose lead or something?).

HP/Compaq :: Dv5t Battery Stuck At 0%

Apr 6, 2010

My battery will not charge even though I just got it about 2-3 months ago from HP while my laptop was still under warranty. When I hover over the battery status it tells me 0% available (plugged in, charging) but no matter what I do it won't charge. I've tried charging this battery on my other dv5t with a different AC adapter, but the same thing is happening. Are there any tricks or anything that I can do? This is a new battery and for it to die after 2-3 months just doesn't make sense. HP battery check tells me the battery health is Good.

HP/Compaq :: Dv5t Excessive Battery Wear

Jan 16, 2010

Does anybody else with a dv5t have excessive battery wear? I purchased the laptop in August of 2008. According to hwmonitor my battery can only hold 30758 mwh down from the designed capacity of 47520 mwh. I rarely used the battery. Maybe once a week for 5 minutes to move the laptop.

I asked a friend with a dv5t purchased around the same time and his capacity is down to nearly 27000 mwh. Our laptops are the same except his has the intel integrated graphics while i got the 9600m gt. Also he uses the battery almost daily.

When i first got the laptop i got nearly 2 hours out of it. Now i can barely get an hour.

We both calibrated our batteries a few times by fully discharging and fully charging a few times which did nothing.

I know that batteries experience wear but does this seem excessive? I believe the estimate is about 10% a year. But this is almost 50% wear in a year and a half.

HP/Compaq :: DV5T: 12 Cell Battery Or Cooling Pad

Jan 12, 2009

The DV5T is one of two notebooks that I'm considering and I have a question related to the heat while gaming. Many have recommended a cooling pad, and many also suggest simply raising the notebook .5-1" in the back. With the natural lift of the 12 cell battery, would the cooling pad still be necessary for long gaming runs? I don't want to pay the extra $20 for the 12 cell only for minimal cooling gains and still needing to buy a cooling pad. Or is it cooling pads are highly recommending for all laptops when gaming?

HP/Compaq :: Dv5t High Capacity 6 Cell Battery

Jan 12, 2009

I am buying a dv5t off ebay but none of the laptops on there come wit the high capacity 6 cell battery offered on HP's website. Is there any place I can buy one? I've tried ebay but it doesn't appear there are any on there.

Also, model number or serialnumber for the high capacity 6 cell so I can check online for it that way.

HP/Compaq :: Dv5t + 12 Cell Battery +Zalman NC1000

Jan 23, 2009

I've been looking at the 12 cell battery to go along with my dv5t for the extra battery life. I know that the 12 cells battery raises the back part of the dv5t up quite some bit. Would that negate or 'contradict' the use of the colling fan (Zalman NC1000). Since the battery pack is elevate, the full laptop wouldn't be able to make contact with the cooling fan, correct?

HP/Compaq :: DV3 CPU Compatibility

Mar 2, 2009

I just bought a DV3 yesterday and it came with a P7350 CPU. I was wondering/planning a CPU upgrade in the future. But Im not sure which CPUs this notebook supports. The current one is a Penryn with 1066 MHz FSB. So does that mean any Penryn CPU with 1066 FSB ? Even the Quad Cores ? Theoretically thats is. Since I know the thermal envelope is too big for this laptops cooling.

HP/Compaq :: Pavilion DV5- RAM Compatibility

Jan 30, 2009

It's pretty nicely specced out, but I won't go over the details, since the GPU and processor have nothing to do with it.

It comes with 4GB of DDR2 RAM, but it's only running a 32-bit OS (or so the box says). Does that mean that only 3GB will be used?

if it does have a 64-bit version of Vista, there's another problem. My backup for my old system was for Vista 32-bit. Will this cause problems on a 64-bit OS? Microsoft support says that some models may face problems when running 32-bit backups on a 64-bit OS, but is this one of them?

HP/Compaq :: F730US HD Failed Replacement Compatibility

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. I have a new Seagate Momentus 7200 200GB SATA, think it would work?

I'm concerned with the capacity information. Is this normal?

HP/Compaq :: G62 Vs Dv6t

Mar 13, 2010

I'm torn between the G62 and the dv6t. Currently I see one main benefit to each:

G62 - Better Processor (I'd go with the i5-540)
dv6t - Better Battery (I'd go with the extended 6-cell)

Other then those two differences, I'd stick with 4GB of RAM and a 512MB video card. Are there any other differences between the two? I do like the looks of the G62...does it really compare (feel wise) with the Envy? Is there any reason to splurge for the Envy? I'll be using this as my everyday home computer...surfing the web, some programming, a lot of office work, a little graphic design.

HP/Compaq :: HP's Dv6t

I saw the dv6t in black on HP's site and I'm seriously considering it over the HDX, but why can't I find a single picture of it in black? The only one's I've seen are silver. Is it just super new?

HP/Compaq :: Is The Dv6t A Bad Laptop

Mar 13, 2009

I just ordered one and it should be here soon. I'm not using this laptop as a gaming machine because I have Xbox360 already doing the job for me. With that being said, I still don't want a crappy laptop that isn't stable (As far as graphics). I'm going to be using it for basically word processing, viewing movies, music editing, light video editing, and web browsing of course. I just need to know if it's a good machine, if anyone with the laptop care to let me know their experience, that was would be dope. If it's not any good I could just send it back for an exchange or get my money back. I paid around 625.00, that was with my student discount, but it came up to 700.00 before that.

HP/Compaq :: HP DV6T Comparison

Nov 22, 2009

I found two similar models of HP DV6t laptop at Newegg.

HP Pavilion DV6-1362NR
[url]

HP Pavilion DV6-2144NR
[url]

Both are the same price however they differ a bit in specs.
The differences between are:

1. Intel Core 2 Duo T6600 2.2GHz (1362NR) VS AMD Turion II M520 2.3GHz (2144NR)

2. 4GB DDR3 (1362NR) VS 4GB DDR2 (2144NR)

Which laptop is in a way "better"? or if you can't compare these two in that way what are the pros and cons between the two differences?

HP/Compaq :: DV6t Quad Ed.

Feb 14, 2010

[url]

This model has customized & quick-ship option.
I notice the customized version is fitted with Geforce GT 320m - For i7 processor (no other option), while the Quick-Ship model is fitted with GT230m WITH Physx.

I've heard about Physx before, and I always think it is another component bought separately (at least for PC desktop 1-2 years ago). So, is this Physx processor always present with all Geforce GT230m & 320m series, or does HP actually fit this additional processor as a bonus ?

I look on NVidia's technical specs for 320m & 230m, and Nvidia specifies that they are both Physx-ready. What does "READY" mean here ? Ready to be fitted with an optional Physx feature, or does it mean both have already integrated the Physx into 320m & 230m ? ...or do I misunderstand something ?

HP/Compaq :: HP Dv6t Biometrics

Feb 9, 2009

I just recieved my dv6t today and decided for some unknown reason that I needed Vista Ultimate. Well in doing so I did not make a copy of the recovery disk.

After I installed all the drivers and applications the verisoft program doesn't have the option to register a fingerprint all it lets me do is passwords.

Does anyone know of another program that would work with the fingerprint reader I have?

HP/Compaq :: DV6T- Newlaptop- To Un-install

Nov 6, 2009

I have had my new DV6T for about an hour and am loving it.

Specs:

-4GB RAM
-Intel Core Duo 2 - 2.26Ghz
-ATI Radeon 4530 graphics card
-Windows 7

A few questions...

Other than Norton, Microsoft Works, and the 60 day Microsoft Office trial, what else should I un-install?

How do I set a system restore point?

I want to make a backup of my system now and put it in a blank disc. What disc should I buy to do this (DVD-R)?

Is there any way I can test my CPU and Graphics card to make sure everything is at optimum performance?

HP/Compaq :: HDX16t Or DV6t For Gaming

Mar 19, 2009

Buying a new laptop soon... choices are a HDX16t (P8400 and Nvidia 9600M GT 512MB) or a DV6t (T6400 and ATi HD 4650 1GB). I'm just looking to play Everquest 2, and even though it's a 2004 release, it's pretty intensive. So I'm wondering if I should deal with the slower CPU and slightly better GPU or vice versa?

HP/Compaq :: Dv6t Keyboardoff Center

Dec 7, 2009

I just received my new dv6t quad edition. The computer is great except one thing that's driving me crazy is the keyboard. Since there is a numeric keypad on the right side, the keyboard and touchpad are not centered to the screen. I find this to feel very awkward.

Anyone else have this issue with the machine? I know the addition of the keypad is not new to this model.

HP/Compaq :: HP Dv6t Quad EditionReplacing HDD With SSD

Dec 15, 2009

I will be receiving a dv6t Quad edition soon. I am planning to replace the original HDD with a SSD. The original HDD will go in a external eSATA enclosure.

Questions/comments:

- Are there any step-by-step guides out there for replacing the HDD?

- I have read in forums that doing a fresh install on SSD is better than cloning your existing drive. Is that correct?

- In case of any issues with the installation on SSD, I can always put the original drive back in.

- If I dont delete the MBR on the original drive, will it create an issue in the external enclosure along with the new MBR on the SSD?

HP/Compaq :: Dv6t Laptop KEYBOARD

Dec 28, 2009

I ordered a dv6 quick-ship model from HP for christmas and I was instantly in love with it. The feature I like the most is the glossy finish on the surface including the KEYBOARD... however, there is this hard drive problem that makes a clicking sound everytime the HDD activity light blinks. So I decided to order another dv6 but this time I ordered a dv6 quad edition customized. Upon receiving the quad edition, opened it, and I was immediately disappointed. Reason is that everything on the suface is the same EXCEPT THE KEYBOARD! the quad edition keyboard is the NON-glossy one and it feels much more rough and cheap and not fit into the overall glossy appearance of the laptop. so I called the HP support and I was told that "All customized dv6 quad got the same non-glossy keyboard I got" The non-glossy one appears and feels much cheaper. I have both laptop side by side and you can totally tell the difference. Not to mention for the battery charger for the customized one I received is much more bulky( twice as big) and the box that came with the laptop is with no HP art markings because it was shipped straight from China internationally.

Pictures: dv6t customized quad edition with non-glossy keyboard: then compare this to the dv6 quick shipped with nice smooth glossy keyboard:

HP/Compaq :: New DV6t 4650 Video Card

Apr 10, 2009

I just took the wraps off my new DV6t. I live in Japan so I had to wait two weeks while my parents spent $150 dollars to ship it to me, but it finally got here and...

There's artifacting everywhere. Little pink boxes appear even when I'm mousing over things in the file explorer, and when I opened up the catalyst control center (and it shows the two 3D scenes for comparison) there was artifacting like crazy!

I tried uninstalling the drivers, but the pink boxes still continue to spawn in random places on the screen. Then I went to ATI's website but apparently they don't hand out drivers for the mobility 4650... so I had to go to HP's website and get the same stuff I had before. Nothing solved...
