HP/Compaq :: Dv4-1125nr Upgrade Or Replace

Jun 9, 2009

I got an hp dv4 for christmas '08 and i really love the portability of the computer, 14 inches is perfect, but its gaming capabilities are shot bc of the integrated graphics. My parents bought the laptop to surprise me, but they don't really know much about computers and thought it would be good for games. I am wondering is there any possible upgrade available that would be cheaper than getting a whole new laptop?

HP/Compaq :: P7350 DV4-1125NR Upgrade

Dec 23, 2009

I'm looking to upgrade the CPU in my DV4 and have 2 questions.

1. Will the p7350 work in this machine? Seems like it should, only difference being the FSB is 1066MHZ as opposed to the T5800 which is 800mhz.

2. Has anyone actually taken their keyboard out? I'm a well seasoned tech and have repaired many laptops and even after following the repair manual from HP, I can't get the keyboard to come out.

Acer :: Upgrade/Replace CPU In 8930

Oct 6, 2009

Replacing/upgrading the CPU on an 8930 is not so difficult. With care, a small cross head and flat head screwdriver and some thermal grease the following procedure can be carried out in less than 20 minutes. The description here is for information only; if you choose to try it out bear in mind that things can still go wrong and you do it at your own risk.
The linked photos show my upgrade of a T6400 to a P8600.

A list of CPU benchmarks at NOTEBOOKCHECK shows the relative merits of these two (and other) CPUs. Whilst the P8600 is not cutting edge technology it is significantly better (in my mind) than the T6400. In addition (BIOS permitting) the P8600 also supports VT, hacking the BIOS is my next step; I have not covered it here as I have not done it yet and anyway others have already covered potential approaches Add to that the fact that I got a good deal on eBay (under 70 GBP) and you can see why I chose the P8600 above possible replacements. Most of my use is development and design so I do not need to be at the expensive cutting edge, but superior performance and hopefully virtualization are key for me. One interesting difference in the choice of CPU is that the FSB should increase from 800 to 1066MHz.So on to the CPU swap out...

First shutdown the notebook and disconnect the mains power adapter. Turn the notebook over so the base faces upwards with the screen hinge nearest.

Unlatch and remove the battery (1). Unscrew the 7 screws holding the access panel in place. If you are careful the screws can remain in their locations as the panel is removed to avoid needing to record where they each came from.

Carefully release the panel by lifting the edges gently releasing the internal clips, start at the recess (3) and work round both sides to the side opposite the recess. The side opposite the recess has lugs not clips and so this edge should be slid out when the others sides are all unclipped (like opening a door with the recess at (3) representing the handle and the opposite side the hinges).

Once released the panel comes away easily and completely, most force is required releasing the first few clips but this need not be excessive and can be helped with a well placed thumb nail.

From now on static discharge is an issue, make sure you are careful to avoid damaging your laptop. Tweezers may be useful as the screws are small, avoid dropping them as they could find there way further inside and become difficult to rescue............

HP/Compaq :: 8530p Replace Fan

Jan 29, 2009

Very nice machine in every other aspect, except for the noisy fan that I've learned from reading here and elsewhere that HP does not recognize as a problem.

So, I'm thinking of replacing it myself. Can I do that without voiding my warranty? What about having an authorized HP repair center do it for me, if I shell out for the fan myself?

what fan to use? And is there a service manual around?

HP/Compaq :: What Drive To Replace DVD-RW In NX9420

Jul 19, 2009

to figure the mess that are DVD laptop model numbers? I assume from the past that the bay in my NX9420 is a 9.5mm multi-bay II, yes?

I was going to grab a UJ-852 drive as it is listed as compatible with the NW9440...and near as I recall the only difference between the two models was the graphics card options and the included warranties.

My NX9420 has been running pretty much 24/7 since I bought in in around in early 2007.

Been through three HDD upgrades and now at 500GB, 4GB RAM...still plugging along wonderfully. Until the DVD drive started popping open just because...I finally had enough, took it out, opened it up and the danged front ribbon cable was so weakened it just fell apart in the middle at the bend...soooo, no real hope of repair so I felt it best to just upgrade the drive to something newer...hence does the UJ-852 and will it fit...I truly have looked, emailed vendors and cannot seem to figure out of the drives are only for the external Multi-bay II or I can remove any attached adapter and use the old mounting bracket then slide it into the bay and be done...maybe a new drive but nothing more...

HP/Compaq :: Replace Laptop DVD Burner

Feb 1, 2010

My sister has a HP laptop with a bad DVD burner, it won't burn and it makes a grinding sound whenever a disk is in the drive. I don't know the model, anyway it's still under warranty and I'm wonder if she will have to send the laptop back in order for them to replace it. Sending it back is a big no no, and I can replace the drive myself.

HP/Compaq :: Which Motherboard Do I Buy To Replace My Broken One

Jul 29, 2009

I have a DV9000, 17inch. A number (that I think is significant) 439112-001 is on the bottom of the laptop.

I need to buy a refurbished/spare part motherboard to replace the one that died in my other computer, but I can't figure out which one to buy. At first I thought it was as simple as buying a used DV9000 laptop or motherboard, but apparently not only does the screen size (13 vs 19 inch) matter, but also a number.

I see numbers on ebay with stuff like "447983-001"--that's why I thought that one number on the bottom of mine was important. But I can't find that number on any motherboard on ebay, and it only turns up 300 pages on google, which leads me to believe it isn't the right number.

HP/Compaq :: Replace M1330 With Dv5t

Jan 7, 2009

I have an opportunity to buy an HP DV5-1157CA in Canada for a great price:

[url]

It's a 15.4" which makes it bigger obviously than the m1330.

Pro's:
-----
Centrino 2/Montevino platform
4 GB vs. 3GB that I have
9600M GT vs. 8400M GS
possible avoidance of future GPU problems
great clearance price of $997 Canadian

Con's:
------
bigger form factor
plastic chassis vs. magnesium alloy and aluminum
lower battery life
no fingerprint reader
still an Nvidia GPU (can we trust Nvidia anymore)
2 Ghz P7350 vs. 2.4 Ghz T8300

HP/Compaq :: What Happens When You Replace The Base Enclosure

Sep 28, 2009

If your base enclosure (the bottom chassis cover) gets accidentally damaged, what happens to the service tag when you replace that part yourself?

You see, that part carries the service tag on it for warranty purposes. I know the mobo is also tagged (tattoo'd) with the service tag info, but then what happens if the mobo dies, and you have replaced the bottom cover?

My guess is that you could peel off the service tag from the old part and somehow glue it onto the new one, which wouldn't be very nice.

Also what would HP do if they were carrying out the repair?

But I'd like to get it cooler so the fan won't have to run all the time.

HP/Compaq :: HP Dv6000 Screen Replace

Aug 7, 2009

I recently aquired damage to my laptop screen, an HP dv6000 with a 14.1 inch (wide) screen. I am looking to purchase a new one, however the 'specs' or details of the screen (ex. Video connector info, backlight type) are way out of my realm of understanding.

Before I purchase a new screen, I would like to make sure it is completely compatible with my laptop. How am I able to determine this?

Also, what is the esthetic/quality difference between Glossy and Matte type screens?

HP/Compaq :: Best Way To Replace HD In New Computer: Clone Or Re-install

Feb 12, 2009

I've got an HDX 16t due to ship next week (if those chinese factory workers aren't slacking off! ) and I plan on replacing the 5400 RPM HD with a 7200 RPM HD.

What's the best way to accomplish this hard drive switch? I figured I'd just install Vista and the required drivers on the new hard drive but I've read that some people clone the existing hard drive onto the new hard drive.

While that sounds easier will it result in a reliable install?

HP/Compaq :: Replace LCD Screen Or Entire Display Panel

May 19, 2009

i just found this forum and it seems like you guys could help me answer this question. i have a dv2000 laptop i bought about 2 years ago and the screen has started to mess up. essentially it has two problems.

1. there is always a vertical line about a pixel thick that stays a yellow color. no matter what is on the screen, the line is always yellow. if i bend the display panel a bit it disappears but comes back as soon as i let go.

2. when i open and close the laptop to adjust the screen angle, the screen starts flickering with these white lines. i have to keep messing around with the screen (moving it back and forth) for it to come back to normal. im not sure if a cable is loose or maybe broken.

im assuming that i need to replace the entire display panel but im not sure if i can get away with just buying the lcd screen and replacing it. i can probably get rid of the yellow line on the screen but i think the flickering is caused by something else. could it be a loose cable that i just need to fix?

HP/Compaq :: Can You Replace The Synaptics Touchpad On Presario V2402 (V2000)

Jan 20, 2010

Somehow my Synaptics Touchpad on my Compaq V2000 (Model 2402) got zapped today and will not power on at all. This is different than the usual driver problem that makes you think it is turned off. I was tightening up a screw that is close to the pad itself while it was running and the notebook suddenly just turned off. Everything is fine but the touchpad will not power on. It was getting pretty useless regardless. I have been using a regular usb mouse most of the time for almost a year now but still need the touchpad for the obvious. ANyone here replace their pad? I haven't found one used or new yet.
