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.

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.

Dell :: Display Shutoff On Lid Close

Dec 7, 2007

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.

HP Envy 17 Display :: Notebook Screen Flickering When Click Something Or Open A Folder

Jul 9, 2014

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.

Sony :: Vaio Z R4041M3 BIOS Disables EFI BOOT

Oct 24, 2009

I flashed by BIOS with the R4041M3 so I can install the latest NVidia drivers for Windows 7.

I wanted to enable "Advanced" options with the InsydeH20 hack (which requires EFI boot) - and I kept getting those

"Remove disc or other media" messages.

I thought something went wrong with my USB stick, tried at least 5 of them and finally also tried Windows image itself - with no luck!

Then, I switched back to old BIOS - and the EFI boot worked immediately on the first USB drive!

HP/Compaq :: Network Connection Closes On Lid Close

Jan 20, 2009

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.

HP/Compaq :: Hard To Open CD/DVD Tray

Feb 2, 2009

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.

Apple :: MBP - AIM Wont Open - MSN Wont Open On The Actual Application

Aug 19, 2009

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..

HP/Compaq :: Won't Shut Down Unless Leave Screen Open Dv5

Feb 9, 2009

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?

HP/Compaq :: New Laptop Dv5- Open The Disc Recovery Manager, And The Computer Suddenly Logs Off

Jan 29, 2009

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.

Dell :: M1530 -- Does The Screen Turn Off After You Close The Lid

Jan 17, 2009

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?

HP/Compaq :: Display- Flickering, And Glitches In The Display

Jul 10, 2009

I am having some flickering, and glitches in the display, and it seems, that it depends on the lcd position. It starts after I open the display, or sometimes after the laptop has been in use for a long time. It happened before, and the hp service replaced the lcd, saying that was a faulty one, but now, with the new one, is starting again. Is a bad replacement? I have to worry for the videocard? or motherboard? I spent 350uss on the new lcd, and I really hope is the replacement.

Dell XPS 1502 :: Won't Boot - Makes Single Click (close To DVD Player)

Apr 9, 2013

My Dell XPS L502 laptop is 1 year, 3 months old. It is 8G and came with an Intel Core i5-2430M 2.4GHz. My company is currently in a 24 month lease agreement with Dell. I went to turn the laptop on and it wouldn't turn on. I pressed the power button a few times and eventually it booted up and ran fine (in hindsight it may have been a little slower than usual but I had just downloaded a bunch of high resolution pictures so thought that could have been the issue).

I left my desk for lunch and upon my return, the laptop wouldn't come out of sleep mode - it was like it powered down on its own. I tried tturing it on again by pressing the power button but it wouldn't boot. Each time I pressed the power button, the light on the power button would flash and there would be a single click noise (the noise sounds like it is coming from the DVD player but I am unable to open the DVD player).

I took out the battery, put the battery back in - still wasn't able to turn the laptop on. I than took out the battery and just had it plugged into the outlet and after another 7 attempts of hitting the power button (and experiencing that single click with each push), the laptop booted successfully. I tried opening up a program (Quickbooks) to back it up and the computer froze (not responding to CTL+ALT+DEL) and eventually went into sleep mode. I haven't been able to get the computer to boot since. The keyboard does not light up but the little light in the middle of the power button does each time I press it, which is  always than accompanied by a single click noise, which is coming from the right side of the keyboard, close to the DVD player.

Apple :: Making An Application's Menubar Minimize/close With The Application

Mar 11, 2010

There's a little quirky behavior that's bugged me a little bit ever since I started using Snow Leopard last summer.

Whenever I minimize or close an application using either the yellow/red buttons on the application or simply hitting CMD+M / CMD+W, the menubar for that application persists, necessitating a click on whatever application behind it before that app is actually "active".

For instance, if I were to hit CMD+W on Firefox right now, iTunes would be staring me in the face, but the menubar would still be for Firefox -- and I'd have to click on iTunes before being able to play something.

Is there any config setting or some way to make the menubar minimize/close with the application I'm minimizing or closing?

Acer :: How To Open The Case Of The 1410

Nov 20, 2009

I decided to give the PLL mod a try so I can overclock to 1.7GHz in my 1410. I got ahold of a soldering iron and an old motherboard that I practiced on, and it doesn't seem too bad once you get the hang of it.

Now that I've decided to go ahead, I try to take the case of my Aspire 1410 apart, and with all the screws removed, hard drive, memory, wireless card, I can pry the front of the case open ok, but as I get near the back (fan exhaust one side and lock/ethernet other) It seems locked in place somehow and don't want to break anything.

Is there a guide or service manual or something?
