HP/Compaq :: DVDPlay Users

May 24, 2010

I recently got a new HP Pavilion Slimline computer and I just got back the HP DVDPlay program because my old computer, which was Compaq, broke down and had to be replaced ASAP. However, my new computer won't let me play any of my Region 1 DVDs on DVDPlay because the computer is locked in region 0 mode. Every time I put in a R1 DVD to play with DVDPlay, it ejects the disk and asks if I want to change regions. I have not used any of my 5 out of 5 limitations yet to switch to Region 1, and it says that DVDPlay is incompatable with my computer.

I also cannot find QuickPlay on my computer, as I think it's gone, was deleted and/or was never put back on. If I bring back QuickPlay, will it let me play Region 1 DVDs on DVDPlay again? What should I do? I hope there's a free way to fix this, as I can't afford to spend any further updates on how to fix my computer to play R1 DVDs again.

HP/Compaq :: HP Dv6500t Running Windows 7 RC With 2 Active Users

May 11, 2009

I'm getting a strange problem on my dv6500t with my dual booted Windows 7 RC install (same issue with the Beta). My searches have been inconclusive.

Using W7 as one user is fine, but if I leave one user logged in and switch user accounts, things start acting wierd...Anti-virus fails to start (I've uninstalled AV and the rest still occur)Can't use the IE button on the task barIE doesn't log in to some websites (e.g. AOL mail)slowness Lots of permanent window and menu artifact ghosting that only clears after logging out This only happens when 2 users are logged in at one time... one user works just dandy.

I'm just suspicious of my HP... the friggen thing crashes on me enough or doesn't resume from hibernate/sleep so I'm not confident in the crap.

HP/Compaq :: HDX16 Users TEMPERATURE, SPACEBAR, And DOLBY

Apr 15, 2009

Is it me or does the left side of the wrist rest get hot? the remote in the slot also gets really hot. The average temp seems to be 38-46 C. Its like 81 when playing a game or so. Even though these numbers seem normal, does anyone feel its hotter than its supposed to be. I used HWMONITOR to see the temps. Im just worried if this heat can ruin the express slot remote. and does anyone else feel the warmth from the left side?

Also, is anyone's spacebar not that responsive when hitting it towards the farthest left or right? Its really annoying when you hit it but theres no space. Other laptops are perfectly normal but the hdx16 spacebar seems loose.

Lastly, everytime i turn off the dolby sound space expander, my fingerprint reader sounds like its buzzing when it accepts a fingerprint. Some songs crackle when it's turned on as well. Try it out, it will probably happen to you. Already tried reinstalling the audio drivers and problems still occurs.

HP/Compaq :: Dv5t Latest Drivers (for Advanced Users)

Jan 5, 2009

Last Updated: 21st November 09

since I havenít been able to find a thread listing all the latest drivers for the dv5t I've decided to make one myself. Let me be clear, this is for ADVANCED USERS ONLY.

For the average user you can find the latest drivers for your specific model at www.hp.com. This thread may contain drivers that are not specifically targetted at the HP dv5t but appear to work with it correctly. These drivers may not include vendor specific functionality that HP may have added (although I have not heard of any instances of this being so). Some of these drivers may work with other series of laptops but this is NOT guaranteed. I cannot guarantee these drivers will work correctly for everyone here so please be careful - only install these if you know how to revert any changes you have made. I am only including WHQL certified drivers, so regardless of what site they come from you know they are authentic. I've tested some of these drivers on my machine and they work perfectly well however I am unable to test everything. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. Without further ado:

Intel Chipset Software Installation Utility:
Version: 9.1.1.1020
OS Support: Windows Vista, Windows 7
Link: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/down...10884&lang=eng
Notes: I recommend running the setup file from an elevated command prompt with the "-overall" flag (without quotes). This will assure that all devices are updated.....

HP Compaq Presario CQ42 OS/Software :: Synaptics Touchpad Advanced Settings Disabled For Other Users

Jul 2, 2014

I have three user profiles in my Compaq Presario CQ-42, one is administrator and others are "Other User". When I fisrt saw the synaptics touch pad settings window through my first "Other User" profile 1, in Mouse Properties->Device Settings->Synaptics LuxPad V7.4->Settings, all the options in this window were available for selection and no one was diabled. Now when I go to "Administrator" Profile, Some of the options in this settings window are disabled and appear to be partly hidden. Like the option "Enable Pinch Zoom in Pinch Zoom section" and "Enable Pivot Rotate in Rotating" appears to be hidden/disabled. 

For verifying this, I created the another "Other user" profile 2 but no success and I found the same problem here also. I also tried to unistall the synaptics driver several times from all the profiles but every time I re-installed them and checked to get the same result. The settings were only accessible for "Other User" Profile 1 each time and were disable for Administrator profile and "Other User" Profile 2. I can produce the snaps of same if required.

Dell :: Studio XPS 16 / Windows 7 Users

Dec 1, 2009

Personally I try to run out of a standard user account (instead of an administrator account). Itís the most secure way to go and just plain good form IMO. But I realize that most people do not because windows defaults you into the administrator account. Well I just noticed that the ACEeventLog (an event log created by the Catalyst Control Center that you can find in the Event Viewer) spews out a stream of events/errors when I run out of a standard user acccount. These events/errors stop as soon as I go into my administrator account.

I have a feeling that these events have been causing instability in my system when in the standard user account. If its true that its Dellís video driver thatís doing this it would be crazy. Dell is an IT company and should know that LOTS of their users will be in standard user accounts (any good admin will do this). Well to make a long story short, Iíd like to pose a question: How many of you run out of a standard user account? If I'm in the minority then it might explain the instability issues Iíve been having that few others are not.

Acer :: Arcade Deluxe Users

Sep 23, 2008

I'm just wondering if AAD comes with the Cyberlink H.264 codec - the one that enables GPU decoding. Because if it does, I have a reason to install that thing back on my system.

Here's how you can check. Open up Windows Media Player. Right-click on the top bar, go to Help, then About Windows Media Player. Click the Technical Support Information link in that box, and your Internet browser will open with an HTML file with all your codecs. Save a copy of that HTML, upload it somewhere like RapidShare/MegaUpload, and post the link here.

I'll report back with my findings - if it means we don't need to buy CoreAVC or another decoder, I'm all for it.

Dell :: M4400 Freezes While Switching Users

May 3, 2009

My m4400 seems to like to lock up while switching users. It doesn't happen all the time, but when it does the "Please Wait..." spins away on the screen and it will stay that way forever.

The only way to fix it is to force a reboot by holding down the power button. I'm using Vista Business 64.

Apple :: Boot Camp 3.1 - Windows 7 Users

Mar 26, 2010

Running OSX 10.6.2 on a 15" MBP with only minor complaints, but I'm facing the fact that deep down inside, I still miss Win7.

I have a Win7 Professional disc and a copy of the Office 2010 beta sitting side-by-side, keeping each other company.

I'm just curious how those of you running Win7 via Boot Camp 3.1 feel about the point update that Apple put out in January -- particularly as regards battery life. From what I understand, the touchpad "touchiness" is resolved, and graphics performance is much improved, but I have read few comments (and conflicting ones at that) as far as any gains in battery life.

Dell :: Inspiron 9300 Users Running Win 7? Problems!

Jan 10, 2009

I totally wiped out my drive and started anew on my 9300. Most of my hardware drivers were accounted for. But, I'm missing sound, wireless, Fn+X keyboard shortcuts, and (most importantly) my ATI X300, which may as well not exist because Windows sure isn't recognizing it.

I haven't been able to get online with it yet, so I'm not sure how many of these problems I can clear up by searching with 7's troubleshooting tools.

Of course, ATI doesn't have official Vista drivers for the X300. Has anyone worked around Dell's OEM drivers, or have those been fine for you?

I really wanted to make it a nice cable/OTA HD Media Center, but I especially need my video card up and running for that.

Apple :: Mac Users Connecting To 3008WFP 30" Dell

Well on my way out to the apple store I decided to run up a few competing monitors and find the 30" Dell with higher specs, HDCP S-IPS panel with 6 inputs (even has display port) for EXACTLY 1599...which is the SAME student discount price for the 30 cinema. Spec wise the Dell is better...in reality, I don't know because I can't go see it.

My question is has anyone connected a macbook or macbook pro to this display?

Apple :: IPad Users Targeted By 'iTunes' Virus

Apr 26, 2010

[url]

Apple iPad users targeted by 'iTunes' virus

It may have only been on the shelves in the US for a few weeks but the Apple iPad has already been hit with a virus.

BitDefender has reported that it has found malware links are being sent to iPad users which disguise themselves as an iTunes update.

The malicious link comes in an email, explaining that if you update your iTunes you will be given "Öbest performance, newer features and security".

Once clicked, any sensitive data stored on the users' iPad may be used for exploitation.

Backdoor man

BitDefender said about the virus in a release: "Identified by BitDefender as Backdoor.Bifrose.AADY, the piece of malicious code inadvertently downloaded injects itself into the explorer.exe process and opens up a backdoor that allows unauthorised access to and control over the affected system.

"Moreover, Backdoor.Bifrose.AADY attempts to read the keys and serial numbers of the various softwareinstalled on the affected computer, while also logging the passwords to the victim's ICQ, Messenger, POP3 mail accounts, and protected storage."

The dodgy link is primed for the iPad as it seems that Mac users are unaffected by the link.

The Apple iPad has a delayed UK release date of 'May' Ė hopefully without a virus.

Dell :: Inspiron 1520 Users 1TB Laptop Internal Drive ?

Apr 18, 2010

my 320gb drive that shipped from Dell 2 years ago is dieing out. It will need to be replaced soon. I am curious if any Inspiron 1520 users have upgraded to one of these new 1TB capacity laptop drives. Previously 500gb was the max capacity but now 750gb and 1Tb versions are available. From what I understand the drives must be 2.5 inch to fit in an Inspiron 1520.

Has anyone done this yet ? Which model drive have you installed ? Did you have any issues 'fitting' the drive in ? How is it working out ?

Dell :: XPS M1530 XPVsync / Speed Step Calling All XP Users!

Feb 16, 2009

I have this odd problem with my M1530 using windows XP. I currently mainly play WoW. . . I have installed Windows XP on my M1530. . .

So heres what I do.. I open up CPU-Z .. minimize it so that I can see the current speed of my CPU in the task bar. Open WoW in windowed mode and then play so I can see my CPU speed via CPU-Z.

When I do this and Vsync is off it is normal. Speed goes 2.5Ghz @ a 12.5 Multiplier. (using vsync option in wow to control)
When I turn on Vsync instantly the Speed starts going from 2.5Ghz to 1.2Ghz and back to 2.5Ghz ...

but over and over and over, back and forth.... enough to notice while playing ... it creates stutters. I have tried everything I can think of to fix this. So if anyone has a idea please share...
