HP/Compaq :: Display Disables When I Close And Open Lid
May 10, 2009
I switched from using a VGA to an HDMI cable to link my external monitor to my laptop.
When I close the lid and open it back up, my laptop has no display and my desktop moves over to the External Display. The only way I get it back on my laptop display is to use the function button which just clones it and I would have to use the ATI Catalyst Control Center to get it back to normal again. I opened up Catalyst and closed the lid and I tried opening it back up. It then shows my Laptop display is disabled. Everytime I close and open the lid, it gets disabled.
Frequently have the problem of getting stuck on web pages and having to close out the page and then open it up again. ¬†For example, am selling items on ebay and during the listing process - particularly when loading a photo - page freezes and am unable to navigate up or down or click on anything to move out of the page. ¬†When I attempt to reload the page the laptop seems to make an effort to do this but with no results. ¬†Have been clearing browsing data to see if that works but no luck. ¬†I am running Windows 7.
I am having an issue with the screen of my laptop. had bought the laptop jus 3 days back.. :( the problem I am facing is that... once I close my lid and open in in a few seconds, it still gives me a blck scree which does not respond. however If the let the lid be closed for a longer period life 10 sec it works¬†normally.¬†¬†Previously today I experienced an other issue, that was, once I closed the lid and opened it back, it gave me a black screen with one bright spot. bt this was gone after pressing the power button a few times.
It used to work, when I had an older driver (i don't remember which, but it was old...), but now, with the 169.04 NBF MobileForce M4, it won't work. Frankly, it's kinda annoying (when I'm trying to sleep, and even with the lid closed, the screen's bright and in my face...). Yes, I know, I could have it turn off a minute after I close the lid (by setting it in Power Management or whatever), but that's not my point. I want to know why my display won't turn off, and I would like to find a fix, not a workaround.
my notebook has been shutting off my network connection whenever I close my lid. This didn't start happening until maybe a few weeks ago, maybe even less. I couldn't say if there was anything I did to accidentally cause this, but I certainly didn't do anything intentionally. I've looked through all the network connections properties and whatnot and I can't seem to find a fix.
I'm using an HP DV6500t that I purchased almost a year and a half ago. I have the Intel Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN.
It flickers when i click something or open a folder. It also goes crazy when i put on a video. ¬† Things i've done:¬† ¬† Updated drivers. ''Hold power button'' method. ¬† Clues i have: ¬† 1. I remember back when i just got the laptop, it would always flicker in the exact same way when a charger was plugged in that was too weak (power out let too low message) and changing the charger always fixed it. ¬† Now i still have the same charger (i have 3 hp and 1 dell chargers at home that fit my laptop) and none of them seems to be ''enough'' (60w x2 65w x1 and 120w x1). ¬† ¬†2. Another funny thing is that when i uninstalled my Ati Radeon HD5850 drivers completely, there was no flickering, but obviously, i need to have that as i use this laptop strictly for games)¬† ¬† 3. The screen refresh rate is 60hz and not possible to change,. ¬† 4. There is NO flickering on an external screen (tried two tvs, both didn't clicker a bit) ¬† 5. You might say it's a hardware problem, but i actually somehow got it to work without the flickering earlier tonight and stayed up all night playing and it didn't cause me any issues. It was working great. ¬† 6. Occasionally the PC will freeze (could that be a battery problem? since i currently am not using one as both mine are broken and i'm waiting for a new one to ship) ¬† 7. I have had 2 blue screens of death recently. One while installing ATI drivers and other i don't remember.
I have a lenovo Helix on Windows 8.1 x64. ¬† I have created the special 8gb partition. I have installed RapidStart drivers app and enabled RapidStart. At first it works - i put helix to sleep, and i can see after some time that the led stops flashing so the tablet goes to hibernation. However, after lying some time it wakes up again, and stays in sleep mode, and not hibernated mode, and thus, eventually runs out of battery.
I've seen quite a few issues with Windows 8.1 and WIFI on this forum, but this one is a bit different.¬† ¬† I've got a brand new Aspire E 15 that came with windows 8.1.¬† When connected to the network by cable everything works fine. When I try to connect via wifi strange things start happening. ¬† I can see my network.¬† I try to connect and it asks me for the security key.¬† Then it connects.¬† About 1 minute later it says it can't find the network.¬† Other devices that were happily working on that networks wifi¬†suddenly loose connectivity as well (hard wired devices don't seem to be affected).¬† I end up having to reboot the router so wifi works for the other devices. ¬† I made sure the Atheros AR956 adapter has the latest driver - v10.0.0.285 and all windows and acer updates are installed.
Okay, I can't get the "feature" of the touchpad to work where it "disables when a USB mouse is present"
Reason:¬† There is a perpetual bluetooth mouse appearing in the device manager.
I actually have 3 mouse devices listed:¬† Touchpad, HID-Compliant (bluetooth), and HID-Compliant (Wifi).¬† Numbers 1 and 3 are correct.¬† Number 2 is not really there,
When I pull the WiFi dongle, the #3 mouse correctly goes away, leaving me with two.
Clearly, the touchpad is detecting a "HID-Compliant" mouse "on bluetooth".¬† BUT THERE IS NO MOUSE PAIRED.¬† I tried to uninstall the bluetooth software from Add/Remove (or whatever Win7 calls it this year), but the device is still there.¬† So I did an "uninstall" of the device in the device manager, and it comes back.¬† (yes rebooting between all attempts)
So, something, somewhere, is claiming to be a mouse on the bluetooth stack.¬† How do I make it go away, since it's not really there?¬† Because it is causing the touchpad software to disable, thinking there is another device.
Additionally, when I forgot my mouse, I tried to activate the touchpad...¬† Do you realize that it is completely *impossible* to manipulate the user interface to the Tochpad applet in the control panel without a mouse in the first place???¬† You cannot make the "save" button activate. This is the ultimate in poor usage design.
I just received an HP dv5t and I'm having a strange problem. The CD/DVD tray is really hard to get open... I have to press the button very hard, to the point the laptop is sliding to the left and the tray is moving inward. In fact, it really doesn't feel like a "button"... there's no detectable "give" to it.
if it was possible to get the laptop to wake up when the lid is opened? Currently, you can put it to sleep by closing the lid, but when you open the lid you have to push the power button to wake it back up. I haven't seen any option in the power settings to do this either.
dv5 will not shut down when start>shut down>shut down is selected if screen is closed before entire shutdown sequence is completed, if screen is left open, shut down does complete, dv5 is running Vista Home Premium x64
On my other notebooks running XP, as soon as shut down is initiated I can close the screens and the notebooks complete the shut down and turn off while the screen is closed.
Is shut down hanging? Is it this way on all Vista notebooks?
I don't know what it is with this laptop and messengers. But NOTHING wants to work. Heres a list of problems
1) AIM wont open (fixed, I had to change port number) So now AIM works on iChat and Adium
2) MSN wont open on the actual application (Mac Messenger) I want to webcam chat with people, and it just WONT start. It starts on adium since I checked the box to use http or something, but I can't webchat on adium.
When I try to open messenger, it says I am not connected to internet, which I clearly am...
I checked my routers firewall. And I am not too sure how to change things on the macs firewall. I just want to use messengers..
i got my new dv5 last night and ive got a problem. The first time it happened was when i tried to make one of those back up DVD's, i open the disc recovery manager, and the computer suddenly logs off, and im reverted back to the welcome screen where i need to click my name to log back in. Every program that was running simply dissapears. I was like 'crap... i guess i cant make any back up discs'. But then it happened again when i tried to install WinRAR, it was corrupted becuase i copied the files from another computer and after i press ok in the error box it does the same thing.. 3 times i had to re-download a file i was downloading at that time. I guess it only happens when theres an error. I immediatly uninstalled norton and most of the bloatware so it cant be due to that. So now im paranoid about opening any file hoping that it wouldnt log off like that suddenly and lose my work.
We had¬†problems with our laptop XPS 15 (L502X). It froze often,¬†we were¬†unable to switch it off properly, etc. In the shop they¬†told me McAfee¬†caused the problem, so they uninstalled it.¬†Then they started to check the harddrive, after 20% they found already 7 bad sectors. Now they suggest to ¬īclose¬ī these bad sectors. But we¬īre using the laptop and it seems to work¬†well. Do you recommend¬†having the bad sectors repaired or closed or should we change the hard drive completely? Can the bad sectors do any harm?
a few months ago, had the dell tech come in and replace the mobo on my overheating m1530.. in the process he had to take everything apart incl the screen and put it back after the new one was installed.
question: does your screen turn off after you close the lid while its on?
mine doesnt, and im wondering if it has something to do with the sensors on the lcd (if any).. or is the screen not supposed to turn off when you close the lid?
