So yesterday after getting home i decided to use my laptop. Well i opened up the screen and noticed my wifi and sound buttons were orange but the sound was still on and so was the wifi. First things first i tried new drivers... No luck. After this i decided to open up the laptop and check the cable. Durring this i got the wifi button to work for about 5 seconds im not sure what i did but it still dosent work. I even tried another media bar cover from a working dv7 still no luck. So does anyone know where my problem might be or do i have to send this laptop into hp?
My HP dv1000 hasn't been working too well for several weeks. Recently, when I started it up, it showed the HP logo, then just said MBR error. I was following these instructions on how to fix it [url], but when I put a new XP CD in and pressed a key to boot from CD, it came up with this error message:
PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel Boot Agent.
I just formated my acer travelmate p253 and when I set the boot order to boot from disk and restarted I got the error sayingPXE-E61: Media test failure, check cablePXE-M0F: Exiting Brodcom PXE ROMNo Bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any keyAnd I have tryed every thing ro get my laptop to work I removed the hdd and put it back set the bios to default inserted the win 7 disk and set the boot order, inserted a usb with win 8.1 in and set the boot order.Nothing...
how the media buttons stop working after a resume and how the eject button stays on.
i have been testing something and would like others to try this out. follow me here: i notice the eject button light stays on when i close the lid and then pull the usb cable out (connected to a Dell 24" widescreen with usb port which connects: 2 mouse and 2 printers and a external drive). *IF* i disconnect the usb first and wait for the full disconnect sound and THEN close lid, the eject button doesn't light up.
i'm thinking... and it could be completely wong here but the eject button might have something to do with shut down and boot up of usb devices and is going though some sort of a systems check? why? i dunno. it's been rather sporatic but i head to class 4x's a week and i shut down differently and i have experienced different results. testing a few things out.
Basically I bought a Dell Inspirion 1525 with Vista, Downgraded to XP, had to change the Hard drive to IDA for the system to recognise XP. Been running fine then I pressed the MD button by mistake thinking it was the power button, it gets as far as 'Building you MD files' then says ''DMD cannot access your hard drive. This maybe because you have enabled Microsoft Bit Locker (Drive Encryption)'' etc etc. Now i'm hoping that means it hasn't wiped my HD cos i've read a load of people who've had problems with that button wiping everything out but i think it can't recognise my HD cos I switched it to IDA.
Anyways whenever I press the power button now it keeps loading MD and doing the same cycle and I can't load XP at all, tried loading it in safe mode and it crashes. PLEASE HELP ME!!! I can't get windows on at all and I really don't care about MD, infact when I can access windows again i'll be researching how to deactivate the MD button so this doesn't happen again unless someone can provide that info aswell
I have a Vostro 1700 with Vista installed. When I got it I didn't want the Dell Mediadirect softare on there so reinstalled with those partitions removed and just Vista on there.
I also tried installing Windows XP to see how that worked on it; XP installed fine and worked well, but I had the problem that if I touched the Media Direct button it could knacker up the whole XP installation. Obviously,
I couldn't resist trying, and low and behold, when I pressed the button my XP installation was corrupted! (my original thread on it was here - New Vostro 1700 laptop! Why are there four partitions, and can I get rid of them?!)
I've really not liked Vista, and do want to get Windows 7 on the Vostro, but what I want to make sure before I pay out for Windows 7 is that I'm not going to have the same problem with that damn Media Direct button .....
I'm new here, so I apologize if I'm not doing this right or if this has been addressed.
I recieved a new Studio 1535 for Christmas. It was purchased on Thanksgiving Day so its past the 21 days. Everything was working great, but all of a sudden, randomly the eject button started lighting up and trying to eject a cd.
This did it for a little while, my sister has a MAC and says her's does the same thing. It was my first time with a slot loading cd drive..so I took her word for it.
Then it kept happening. Next, the volume button would light up..raise the volume up all the way on the screen and stay there. I would manually try to lower it, and it wouldn't let me
i can't access the HP's online ho to dissembel video section no more. i had taken apart my DV9500CTO notebook to replace the thermal paste with AS5, and now i want to replace it again with IC7D thermal paste, and i can't seem to find the website that had all the step by step videos on how to dissember the whole laptop. i read through the forums and this link is what most of them are reffering to [url] but i'm not sure if this was the link or not... the link that i used last time was also from HP as well, but it never asked me for no log in or anything. i would click on the link and it just took me to place where i would go find my laptop and it would have small videos on it on how to dissember each part. can some one please show me the way? i know the user manuel kind of shows you how to do it, i've read it, and i beleve the videos are much better, as i can open my laptop up just like in the videos.
i got a new hp tx2 and when i turn it on it came loaded full of "crap" so i wanted to reload 7.. and they didnt send an OS cd... So i went ahead and created a recovery cd and when i reloaded still had all the crap installed.. so i called them up, and was told that HP can not provide me with an OEM CD.. they can only "sell" me a recovery cd which has all their software and drivers preloaded.... So the technical guy is right? i cant get Windows OEM media from them? how stupid is this? dell, toshiba, fujitso, sony send the cds but hp doesnt and they dont even give you an option to buy it.....
When you first recieve your HP HDX or other HP laptops, they come loaded with all types of Media Software and it wouldnt make any sense to keep all the music/dvd players, photo veiwing programs, etc. So my question is, which ones did you decide on keeping and which ones did you decide were junk?
HP DV5-Z CTO1000 AMD Turion ZM-80 2.1Ghz @65nm and .950 Voltage 3GB PC26400 RAM (Samsung 2GB, Elpida 1GB) ATI Radeon HD 3200 w/ 256MB shared memory Windows 7 Ultimate
In normal use (meaning browsing the web, listening to mp3 music, watching h.264 video, using MS Office, etc) there is absolutely nothing wrong with the machine. However, after a few minutes of light gaming, such as the Sims 3 or World of Warcraft on low settings, the entire system locks up and shows the following screen. The only thing that remains functional is the caps lock button, which lights on and off when pressed. No alt+tab, no ctrl+alt+dlt, nothing else.
At first I thought this was an overheating issue, as placing a desk fan near the heat vent made the problem delay. Instead of deathscreening a few minutes into playing the game, I could get a good hour or two of functionality. But even with the desk fan in a cold environment, the problem still occurs.
i have a dv2220us i purchased sometime in late 06 early 07 had a few issues over the years nothing major.
sunday 04/02/10 i pick my laptop up slide my finger across touchpad and nothing happens. quick launch buttons are lit, power light is on and wifi selector is orange while in on position. hmmm...i power it down then start it back up. it's much quieter than it has ever been and extremely cool. i pull hard drive cover and notice it's not spinning at all.
i remove hdd from chassis plug it in to coolmax cd-350 and my wife's dv4t hdd starts clicking, buzzing, beeping and grinding. i'm certain it's dead and i don't care if i'm able to salvage anything from it.
i purchased a wd6400bevt as a replacement, but i never made back up disks. i've installed the new drive all quick launch lights are on power light is on and wifi is orange. i know this hdd has no os or drivers, but i was hoping the monitor would wake up.
is it possible to buy a new video module for a HP DV8000 17" laptop? Mine took a dump on my, cant get into windows at all, and when its posting there's red lines all over. I can get into safe mode, but thats cause its just a normal VGA driver, but theres still lines all over the screen. Its been a great laptop, and I would hate to not be able to fix her.
I am going to buy again a system board due to video failure. Insteed a refurbished I wanna buy a new/used board. Is it possible to replace a 434659-001 G73M system board to a 447982-001 / 447983-001 G86 one? I have a dv9019ea and I observed that theese cards have same output connectors on them. I dont know about dimensions but they look similar.
I have a compaq presario f700 and I got it in november of 2007. Anyways today I was surfing the web when all the sudden in lost the internet connection. The little orange light next to the switch was on but the switch was turned on. it would not find any wireless networks so I reinstalled the wireless driver from the recovery program and it worked for like 10 minutes, then the orange light came back on and I lost internet connection. Anyways I have reinstalled windows twice now and I still cannot get the computer to find any wireless connections and the blue light will not come on, it stays orange. Is this a software problem or did my broadcomm wireless hardware thing take a crap?
I have a DV9500t with a nvidia 8600gs card in it. Last Friday my wife brought it to work and when she was leaving she just shut the laptop and stuck it in our notebook bag. When she got home we went out to eat and when we got back we took the laptop out and it was very very hot and smelled a little funny, apparently the damn thing didn't go to sleep when my wife closed the lid. Great HP workmanship there.... Well I let it cool off and turned it on... It started showing little red dots all over and when it tried to boot into windows there was multi colored lines up and down the screen. I could boot into safe mood and see everything, but the display was still a bit screwy show little red dots and artifacts everywhere...
So I've concluded that the video card overheated and I'm lucky it didn't start on fire, but at the same time the laptop is unusable. Is there anything inexpensive that I can do about this? The warranty expired a year and a half ago and I certainly can't afford a new laptop at this point. This is very frustrating since I thought the laptop would last at least another year.... Does anyone know if the video card can be replaced?
My zd7377ea has started on start up to show virtical lines and stalls before xp starts then black screen after a while it crashes and restarts. when started in safe mode the screen is distorted but webpages are ok it has a NVIDIA geforce FXgo 5700 card
Does the dv5t come with a media reader by default, or is that an add-on accessory?
On mine, on the left side, closest to the front of the computer, I see two slots (SD MS/PRO MMC XD is written above them) . One is covered by a piece of metal that looks like it may be able to be pulled out, but I haven't tried. The other is below that. It is just a hole that looks like a memory card can fit into, but I am not sure whether it is active or not.
my HDX 16t via the digital TV tuner. Spectacular picture. But... I had the speakers on my notebook cranked up as high as possible, but still the football game wasn't loud enough and too hard to hear. The speakers are definitely capable of putting out more, as they do with other applications. There's something about Media Center--the volume is just not high enough. how to boost speakers in Media Center?
Hp update popped up on my DV5t-1000 and asked me if I want to update the bios version. I downloaded it, but while the installation an error occurred and it dumped all the memory to the hard drive. After a restart, it does not even show the hp logo only a black screen. All the led lights are on not blinking.
