HP/Compaq :: EliteBook 8530p- E-SATA Port Does Not Recognize HDD (Vista 32)

Sep 21, 2009

OS is Vista x86 32-bit.

We couldn't for the life of us get the Seagate HDD recognized when plugged inside the eSATA port. Worked fine via the alternative IEEE1394 connector, though. The "super-duper" trick recommended by the manufacturer, consisting of mere rescanning drives with the HDD manager in Computer Management did not effect in anything. Nor did installation of Intel's hard drive manager (which came with a driver update under the veil)

But the dealer whom he bought the HDD from insisted that the HDD worked fine via eSATA, so it doesn't appear to be a hardware problem, nor could a defective cable be the culprit, since he used the very same.

HP/Compaq :: Elitebook 8530p LCD Quality

Jan 20, 2009

I bought a 6930p earlier and it had the infamous CPU whine and the roaring DVD drive. It also came with Intel/Windows stickers that were stuck on slanted and dust all over the touchpad.

Now I returned it to get the 8530p, and the earlier problems with the build quality were all gone, including the CPU whine. But now I have a new problem, LCD with grainy images.

The LCD is made by AUO with a model tag of AUO197B. I couldn't find any information on this panel but the grainy filter over the LCD is really making me dizzy. Its basically on par with the Dell 2007WFP grainy filter. The AUO is a WSXGA+ which is a 15.4" 1680X1050 resolution. Has anyone else noticed the grain issue of the LCD? Even the 6930p's AUO LCD did not have such a problem.

On further note, PC wizard reports the LCD being manufactured in the 1st week of 2007! It seems like they pulled some of their 8510p LCDs to be used in the 8530p.

I recently bought the upgrade but this is the first time I am upgrading Windows as I usually do clean installs. Is there anything I should pay attention to? Are the drivers already there for Win7 and are there any known issues?

HP/Compaq :: 8530p Problems (Touch Styk & Vista Power Schemes)

Mar 29, 2009

After I got it back I reinstalled windows (Vista Ultimate 64bit) and after a week it crashed with the blue screen at boot (error 7E). I could not come into windows (not even in safe mode or system restore), so I brought it back to HP.

They did not find any hardware failures with the tests. They EVEN tried installing winXP on some other disk and while everything worked fine they made a conclusion that the laptop is ok. And I was just advised to reinstall OS.

Did that and after 2 days some new troubles appeared.

The "mouse" was clicking randomly (mostly with right button) and the current program (window) stopped being active.

I thought it was a virus (avira did not find anything), so I did another clean install (this time win7 32bit) - same thing. Went back to Vista 64 (with restore dvds made before the troubles began).

I tried disabling mouse, touch pad and touch styk - the mouse works normally when having touch styk disabled.

Now Vista is changing my Power Schemes sometimes (from HP Optimized to High performance and back for a few times).

HP EliteBook 8530p Lockups :: Num And Caps Lock Led Blinking 5 Times Which Indicates General System Board Error

Aug 14, 2014

I have several HP 8530p and I getting  the num lock & cap lock leds blinking 5 times which indicates a general system board error. Bought new boards still getting the same issue.  Note all the units will boot to windows fine, but there is a 10-15 sec delay in hard drive response when operating pc. The mouse is real time responsive but once you clink on a item the lag shows up. What to look for as the problem, CPU , Memory changed, Fans, Cooling system.  Bios versions have been updated, I've torn the unit down, cleaned and added new thermal paste to CPU, GPU and added copper shims to promote better heat transfer. The system Diagnostics indicates hardware is ok.

HP/Compaq :: Trying To Install Xp Over Vista No Sata Option

Mar 18, 2009

I have a HP DV2000 (BIOs states it is a 2500) that I am trying to install XP over vista.

I have gone into the bios to disable the SATA but there is no option to do so. I do have a external floppy to use. I thought I was computer savy but am feeling kinda dumb. Should I start with a flash? What model am I actually working on, 2000 or 2500.

HP EliteBook 8530w OS/Software :: SimplePass Will Not Recognize Windows Password

Aug 14, 2014

I have an HP Elitebook  8530w with Windows 7 32-bit. I did not buy this laptop, it was a gift from a friend. I have gotten recently, just a few days ago. I have not used the fingerprint sensor previously before today. I went on the HP site and went to get the driver for the fingerprint sensor. Here is the link to that page. I tried to install the AuthenTec Fingerprint Sensor Driver but it did not work, it said the installation process was interuppted and to try again later. So I tried again later and the same happened. So I uninstalled and checked to see if there were any later versions. I had not looked to see that the original one I installed from the drivers page was from March 17 2010.

I did some researching around and found version of HP Simplepass (The AuthenTec Driver had HP Simplepass installation included). I installed this version and it worked. I opened it up and it prompted me to enter my windows account password. So I did. I then clicked Set Up Windows Log On and it told me to enter my Windows password again. I did but it didn't work So I tried again... and again... and again... It didn't work no matter how many times I tried. I tried restarting my laptop and changing my account password. Neither worked. So I'm confused as to what could be the problem. I would very much like to use this feature.

Dell :: M4400 E-sata Port/external Hard Drive

Jun 14, 2009

i recently bought a vantex nexstar 3 external hard drive with the option of usb and e-sata. The problem i am having is with e-sata. The e-sata is the prefered method of exchanging information dur to its speed rather than usb.

I would like to know from the community in large if there is anyone who has experienced these problems or has connected an external to their m4400 laptop.

The external laptop has a seagate 7200 rpm FFS(free fall sensor) inside.

The problems:
1) When connecting the exHD to the laptop for the first time the HD spins (i can feel it) but then stops. Windows does not pick it up as well as Intel Matrix Storage manager. Only when i restart the laptop still with the exHD connect does windows pick it up as well as Intel Matrix Storage manager.

I did in both cases check to see if the exHD needs more power and it is sufficient.

2)Another issue is that i have windows reporting to me that an external hard drive has been connect to my system even though i havn't plugged it in .....

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 :: 8530p What Temperatures To Expect

Aug 26, 2009

I've just bought 8530p with a T9400 and ATI mobility Radeon HD 3650.

What temperatures do you get?

My temperatures are:

Cores: 33-36c
GPU: 44-45c

Cores: 64-66c

Anyone care to comment upon the temperatures above? I think they are a 'tad' high under idling (where speedstep is kicked in).
Can anyone with a 8530p provide me with something to compare against?

I'm thinking that I might do a cleanout and replace the thermal paste to reduce the temperatures, anyone tried that on a 8530p with good results?

HP/Compaq :: Some QuickLaunch Buttons Not Working (8530p&Vista64)

Mar 7, 2009

After some problems with software, I did a clean install of Vista Ultimate 64bit. I copied the Swsetup folder and used those drivers, downloaded some newer ones and some applications from official HP site.

It works all great, except the two QuickLaunch buttons: for Qmenu and WLAN. Nothing happens if I pressed them. They don't even blink! But the others work just fine - even the Fn keys.

I've tried reinstalling the QLB application and drivers for a dozen times with no change.

Acer :: Missing To Downgrade Vista To Xp Is The Sata Controller

Nov 14, 2008

The only thing Im missing to downgrade vista to xp is the sata controller I cant find it anywhere for the Extensa 4630Z.

I found Slipstream drivers but it was for downgrading a acer aspire laptop and they didnt work.

I checked intel's site for sata controller drivers they arent there.

When tried slipstream drivers I found filename called " iaahci.inf " I used nlite to intergrate them on cd im still getting a blue screen so they arent compatible.

Why doesnt acer's support site have these sata drivers?

Dell Inspiron 1721 :: Will Not Recognize Hard Drive - Cannot Reinstall Vista

Apr 13, 2013

I have replaced the hard drives with new blank ones, but I cannot now reinstall Vista from the Reinstallation DVD because no drives are seen.

I have updated the BIOS to the latest available version, but still no joy.

I have taken out the drives and, using an external HDD port, can access them from another PC, so I'm certain there's no issues with the drives themselves.

I've tried Paragon 2010 Suite, but even that cannot "see" the drives, so I'm deducing that it's an issue peculiar to this Dell model.

HP/Compaq :: HP Dv2125nr Will Not Recognize Or Charge Battery

Apr 29, 2010

I recently was given an HP dv2125nr laptop that needed a new motherboard. I purchased a new one and replaced it and the laptop was up and running. I was happy and figured that I had just salvaged a decent laptop.

When I first turned it on I noticed it wouldn't run off battery power but thought, no big deal it just needs charged. That turned out to not be the case. I went about reinstalling the operating system using the recovery partition and didn't give much thought to running it on battery til I noticed that the power icon said "On AC Power, Charging" It didn't give me a percentage however, and when I double clicked to inpect further I noticed that the battery icon under battery #1 had an X through it, and it also said "Total Battery Power remaining: Unknown".

At this point I updated the BIOS because I had seen a few forum topics that suggested this, I also made sure I had the most up to date drivers off HP's site for all hardware. Another step I took was to uninstall the "Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery" then scan for hardware changes and let Windows reinstall it. None of this worked.

I then assumed I had a bad battery on my hands, I ordered another one (not an HP, a cheaper one) and when it came I plugged it in overnight to charge and after about 12 hours turned the laptop back on to see if I had a fully charged battery, I did not!

It was acting in exactly the same way the original battery had acted. The only difference that I could notice was, that on one of my many reboots the icon under battery #1 in the Power Meter window only had a single red slash through it, instead of a red X.

Things I have tried:

1. Updated BIOS
2. Updated all drivers
3. Fresh install of Windows XP (again after the original recovery install)
4. Unistalling the "ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery" in Device Manager.
5. Ran HP Battery Check Utility, has a divide by zero exception upon startup, then says no battery is present.
6. Booting directly to BIOS and allowing it a chance to charge overnight.
7. Swapping both batteries (no difference).
8. Taking back apart casing to make sure there were no loose wires.

My only thought next would be that either both batteries are bad (seems unlikely) or that there is a problem with the new motherboard. The motherboard being bad would surprise me, as it is able to run just fine without using battery power.
