HP/Compaq :: FAN Always On- CQ61


recently i bought this HP Compaq CQ61. inside BIOS there's a setting "Fan always on" and currently it sets at "On" as it keeps the fan constantly running. my question is, is it ok if i set it to "disable" hoping it will come at different temp? is it a good idea? just want to confirm. as long as i dont want to hear annoying fan noises, but the same time doesnt want to screw my motherboard?

HP/Compaq :: Installing XP On CQ61 After W7
I'm trying to install XP on my machine after I fried old HD that had W7 installation. I bought new HD but i only have XP CD so i figured I'll install XP so far to get the PC up and ruining, and upgrade to W7 once i find by back-up CD.

My new HD is picked up by machine, and CD starts with installation, copying files from the CD, but only up to the point where it is supposed to start with windows installation.

At that point I get blue screen and message telling me i do not have HD or it is incorrectly installed and that I should run check disk. I've run BIOS scan, and HD is present and scans OK. Is it possible that previous install of W7 is memorized somewhere in BIOS and it is not allowing me to install XP even though HD is blank and brand new?

HP/Compaq :: Presario CQ61-305SA CPU Upgrade
just wondering about doing a CPU upgrade on the above laptop, the current CPU is an AMD Sempron M100. I'm not to up on my AMD cpu's so not sure what the best upgrade would be. Also, what does the bios support, as there are many CPU's that will fit the S1 socket, but I guess not all will be supported in the bios, so does anyone have any knowledge on this.

HP/Compaq :: System Recovery Failed CQ61
My Compaq Presario CQ61-110SA kept on crashing wiht the blue screen error so yesterday i had some time on my hands so i thought I would do a full system recovery in order to stop this nuisence from happening, however I wish I had read the problems associated with the HP recovery manager first as now I have no OS and a recovery manager that dosn't work.

At the moment I am using the recovry manger pre installed on the hard drive however it gets to installing the drivers, and after about an hour a pop up comes up for about half a second saying a about a driver install or dont install (it looks similair to th etype of pop up on vista when a new program wants to run) however due to it poping up so quickly and then going I cannot see what the actual driver is let alone choose an option, after this it says recovery has failed the error code c:system.savlogsBurnBootwarn.log it states the error was detected during PINIST_BBV , when i opened the log file it seemed all the drivers had succeded but [mini_FBI] resilt failed, I have tried doing the recovery with the wireless button on as I heard this could be the cause but still it didn't work, I have recovery discs that i burned however My laptop wont seem to boot fom disk even though I have changed the BIOS and put harddrive at the bottom and the disc at the top.

HP/Compaq :: CQ61-220SA- Specs For Game
I have a Compaq CQ61-220SA Laptop with a 1.8 GHz Intel Celeron DualCore Mobile Processor T3000 cpu and Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD Graphics on which I have Win 7 32 bit.

I've bought a copy of Red Alert 3 which states that it needs an Intel P4 2.6GHz cpu for Vista and 256MB Graphics with a NVidia Geforce G800 or greater chipset or an ATI Radeon X800 or greater chipset.

The shop has said as long as I don't break the seal on the game I can return it if it's not compatible with my laptop and so I need some advice please as to whether the specs I've got are sufficient to run this game?

if this laptop will run this game?

HP/Compaq :: How To OC This CPU
Does anyone have a good way to OC this laptop other than using ClockGen? I am basically wondering if there is a BIOS option. I know there are some OC guides out there, but this laptop is almost 3 years old, and as far as I can tell does not have an option in the BIOS. Also, my proc is the T2600, not the one is this review, but other than that exactly the same. I am looking to play around with this because it is old and I dont care too much if I fry it since my new hotness is on the way.

HP/Compaq :: Looking For New OS
Ive just about had it with Vista on my laptop and want to try a new OS before I junk this thing. Is anyone running Win7 or Ubuntu on a HP DV5z AMD 64 bit laptop? The machine is about a year old and I have 4gb of RAM and the thing is a dog. Ive used Ubuntu in the past on Dell laptops and its a pain to get everything running wireless drivers, flash, etc. Win7 being a RC may or may not have everything up to speed on for my machine.

So, if you have Win7 or Ubuntu on a HP DV5z please give me a shout, good or bad.

HP/Compaq :: HP DV7 Vs HDX 16
Can't really see much difference in these models....looking at Best Buy

Other than 17 vs 16 inch screen are their any benefits to build quality from 1 to the other?

I will be travelling so I would prefer the lesser HDX 16 incher but build quality is a concern

I travel by plane, train, bus every weekend so it needs to be able to handle a little beating

HP/Compaq :: Hp Dv2
I'm am deciding whether to buy this laptop for school use. It has a great size, stylish, and decent specs for a laptop that is so lightweight. The only turn off is that it was made for entertainment, but should this laptop do well for word processing, spreadsheets, and web surfing?

Would the 9 cell battery last for more than 5-6 hours? My budget is also under 700$ but it can stretch a little.

HP/Compaq :: DV2 Or DV3
I'm heading off to school, and these stylish, affordable notebooks have caught my eyes. The only problem is that I only get 2-3 hours of battery life on these notebooks although I can buy an extra battery. What I"m mainly doing is word processing, spreadsheets, iTunes, and web browsing but not all at the same time.

Here are my main questions and concerns:

Do these notebooks have good build quality?Is there any other way to charge the battery without having it in the notebook?Do they get hot?

I may have more questions to ask later.

I am buying this notebook in Canada.

Seeing that the battery tests I've seen on some reviews, they are surfing the internet with Wi-Fi on. I will not be, I'll usually be word processing. Should it last maybe 3 hours?

How long does the 9 cell last on the DV3?

HP/Compaq :: DV7
I own a DV7-1038CA, I actually decided to buy it after reading what people said about the DV7s on this forum. Unfortunately I have a problem .

I had opened up my DV7 to clean out the fan ( ****load of dust in there) and took the whole laptop apart. I put it back together and it worked perfectly fine for about 10 hours. The laptop worked great until I dropped it down on my table at a height of about 1 1/2 inches, not a significant height but the screen immediately turned white and the laptop shut off completely. It would not turn on at all, the power light would blink for less than a second and turn off and then I'd have to wait 30 seconds before I could get it to blink again.

I then took the laptop apart again and this time I checked if everything was plugged in properly. I decided to leave the unnecessary covers off so I could turn it on without having to screw it all back on, it turned for about 3 seconds....before I noticed the display cable to my screen was on the heat sink and had caught fire. I immediately turned it off but the damage had already been done, the fire had burnt through the wiring on the inside of the cable rendering my screen useless ( whenever it was plugged the charging light on the side of the laptop would turn off). At this point the laptop was turning on but would turn off after about 5 seconds (probably due to the fact that there was no screen) During this little fiasco I had ripped off the ZIF cable that connects the power button board to the Motherboard. So now I had no way to turn my laptop on, I ordered a new screen and a new power button board.......

HP/Compaq :: HDX 16, HDX 18
Not in a race on which is better mind you, since these two are next-of-kin. But I mean which parts will fit both? I've been looking for some upgrade parts to the HDX 18, but all I seem to find are parts rated for the HDX 16. So, save the obvious screen size difference, just how comparable are these two in parts?

The keyboards look identical; and the extended battery I found lists a match for the HDX 16 but not the HDX 18. Would there be a size difference?

HP/Compaq :: HP HDX 18t Able To Run XP
I was looking at getting the HP HDX 18t for my self to replace my older laptop. The only problem is the college I go to requires that the laptops you use run windows XP because some of the software they use for web design and programming classes apparently only works on XP. I looked on the HP website and they do not offer a downgrade option to XP. I also looked on the HP HDX 18t support site and they do not have XP drivers listed (except the wireless card and finger print scanner drivers).

So I was wondering if the HP HDX 18t supports Windows XP has anyone who owns this laptop ever downgraded it to XP succesfull before?

I don't mind Installing XP from scatch or setting up a dual boot with Vista but I'm just worried about buying the laptop and not being able to Run Windows XP.

Link to the laptop I was looking at.

HP/Compaq :: HP RMA For My DV6
My DV6 (see in sig) has an AMD Turion Ultra in it and everybody knows that they run real warm, even when I use HP recommended "power setting".

Anyway, undervolting is an option, there is a few free apps that can help doing it. BUT!

My Laptop is only 6 months old, so it's under warranty.

I contacted HP and they seem willing to initiate an RMA.

My Lappy's CPU runs at around 90 degrees celsius after 5 minutes of gaming (COD5).

Running 3DMARKS06 has the same effect...89-92 celsius, USING a laptop cooler, and there is NO dust whatsoever on the fins/exhaust/intake vents...

I know I could open it, reapply thermal paste (I have some Arctic Cooling MX2 laying around)..

For some reason my wifes laptop keeps loosing the wireless adapter. It's as if its not installed. It is not even in the device manager! I reinstalled the adapter drivers and then it was found and worked, but on next boot up it was lost again. I then uninstalled the HP wireless software and used the windows software. It worked for about a day and now the adapter is gone again.

HP/Compaq :: HDX 18t

-how long will the battery last per charge?

-i haven't heard too many positive things about the 130m, so is it easy to "upgrade" this card at say, bestbuy? i wanna play FPS mostly, like COD5 on max settings.. maybe crysis, but from what i heard not many laptops can run that game on max settings.

-is 2,700 a good price for everything included in this package, or is there something "better" i could buy?.............

HP/Compaq :: 16:9 Vs 16:10
I realize a lot of people are not happy losing the vertical space with 16:9.

But wasen;t this the case when we originally moved to widescreen. E.g. with 14" laptops the high-res displays used to SXGA+ which when they became WXGA+ we lost some vertical resolution.

HP/Compaq :: DV2
I wants one, I'm wondering if the only model that came configured with the Turion Neo x2 is the dv2-1199us model? [url]

They aren't sold in Canada anymore except in 'The Source' (formerly Radio Shack now owned by Circuit City) stores and they only have the 1020ca models, which I am not interested in.

Was there any other models with the turion neo and 3410 graphics? Doesn't seem to be that great a selection even on e-bay for dv2's

HP is really pushing the DM3 here in the Calgary area, but they all are the low end models, with the L335 Athlon and base graphics, I'd go for one of these 13 inchers I suppose if I could find one of the turion neo/ATI 4330 models but no such luck in Canada with HP

/rant

What the heck HP? Why oh why can Canadians not buy from the US site? The Canadian hpshopping site is very, very very sadly lacking as is our retail selection of decnt models.

/rant off

HP/Compaq :: Do HPs Overheat A Lot
I'm seriously considering to buy an HP when Windows 7 comes out, but I also hear that some of these HPs can overheat pretty bad.

Is HP a pretty reliable company?

So I've just purchased this laptop for a descent deal as a secondary/field laptop. Looking to do some minor upgrades on it to give it a little more speed; RAM, CPU and hard drive.

It comes with the Mobile Intel 915GM Express Chipset and I'm curious to know if this model laptop is capable of the famous pin mod. If so, looks like I will be purchasing a cheap 1.6Ghz CPU for a pinmod.

Also does anyone know the largest, Hitachi 7200RPM PATA hard drive? Was it 100GB?

HP/Compaq :: Overheating HP
I have sent my laptop off 3 times to HP to have it repaired and its just came back and is running at 197.6 degrees when playing 720p videos. It got hot enough to char a piece of paper that was sitting next to it on my desk, almost starting a fire if I wasn't there.

The kicker is this laptop was given to me by hp a year and a half ago as a replacement for another overheating laptop. I am now told they don't replace laptops. So I cant call up my credit card company and say I received a lemon, or go back to the store and say you sold me a lemon, as it was given to me by HP.

The case managers have been EXTREMELY rude. Essentially calling me stupid and that im not qualified to diagnose the computer, even though Im a computer technician by trade and have been building computers since I was 9 years old.

IS my only options small claims court? is there anyway to get ahold of anyone higher than their case managers? they claim there isnt. Is there a way to get ahold of the board or ceo?

My wife recently picked up Windows 7 (student discounted) for her older DV6604. We did a clean install of 7 and now the computer is having a lot of issues. The screen resolution won't go past 1024x768, the sound is different and terrible sounding, and when typing (say like this post for instance) it randomly skips to somewhere else in the paragraph as I'm typing (I'm not touching the pad).

I felt that the 6 cell battery life is not as it sould be (a few fellows have laptops, without a dedicated graphic card, so i wasnt sure) so I have ran some tests (more than once to verify data ,the difference is +/- 1 minute) to verify the status of the battery ambient temperature around 35~40 celcius

All 'tests' were on windows vista SP1 , 50% brightness, no wifi,bluetooth,lan moden connection,no usbs attached on windows vista, when laptop is idle (to test, i just opened it up,changed the powersettigns so it doesnt close scree,run screen saver ,suspend or hibernate, and left it there, doing nothing and it ran for mere 2 hr 30 min..........

HP/Compaq :: Dv 6568SE
I have a Dv6568 for a little big over a year now. However, now I seem to be having a few problems with it. First the battery. After charging it too 100% the laptop only seems to last 20 minutes or so. The meter is is fine from around 100- 80 or so but after that it usually drops instantly to 6 and shuts off. I have tried calibrating it with the instructions from the hp site but no change. Another problem I'm having is with the heat. It seems to be really hot on the left palm rest area. It has the 8400M GS so I have a feeling it might be this. However HP didn't list the dv65XX models as ones with defective GPU's.

HP/Compaq :: Dv7-3000 As A DAW
I'm attempting to use a dv7-3000 running win764 with a TC Electronic Studio Konnekt 48 firewire audio interface, but I'm not having much luck. Basically, I see the interface lose sync and regain sync every few seconds. Sometimes, it loses sync for up to a minute, but then regains it. With the loss of sync, I also see have the cursor freeze momentarily.

Now, I know this seems device specific, but I can assure you I have done some testing to rule that out.

The device fails with the same or similar issue when:

*I use the onboard 1394a port with the jmicron driver, win7 stock driver, or win7 stock driver in legacy mode.

*I do the above in win7 32 bit or 64 bit, with any combo of device drivers from the device manufacturer at any buffer setting

*I use the intel chipset drivers, both current and previous.

*I use stock chipset drivers.

*I use the most recent and previous intel matrix drivers

*I use the most recent and previous BIOS.................

HP/Compaq :: HDX16T: Fan Always On
Have anyone notice this: The HDX16t will run the fan if the power plug is plugged in and will do so until you hit 100% on your battery meter.

I went into the BIOS to disable "Enable Fan Always On." And yes, when ever my notebook is not connected to power, the fan is OFF. But as soon as I plug in the power chord, back it turns on. While charging, as soon as I pull the chord (even though the battery hasn't met 100%), the fan turns off.

And another question, my HDX16t has this high pitch noise that you can hear. It's sort of like that same issue back with the hold dv6000t models.

How do I disable that, or remove that noise. And no, its not coming from my SSD or my Cd drive.
