HP/Compaq :: IR Receiver Not Working On My HDX18

Feb 26, 2010

I'm not sure when it stopped working, all I know is that It used to be able to power on my laptop even if it wasn't turned on as long as I had the battery in, but now that's not even working.

I ended up finding that there's a device conflict between the motherboard and it, but this isn't being helpful in what's conflicting.

I've gone through driver reinstalled, and a BIOS flash, but of course none of that worked;

Dell :: SX 1647-USB Ports Stop Working

Apr 22, 2010

I just bought a studio xps 1647 from best buy and today the usb ports stopped working. They could not see multiple jump drives I inserted.

Is this a win 7 flaw or is something wrong with my laptop? It was in sleep earlier. My theory is that the laptop just didn't wake the ports coming out of sleep mode. I'm contemplating returning the laptop for another.

Dell :: XPS M1710 Speakers Suddenly Stopped Working

Apr 15, 2009

I have a Dell XPS M1710 laptop, and up until maybe two weeks ago my in-built speakers had been working perfectly fine.

When I tried using them again this week, I noticed the speakers stay absolutely quiet and don't make any sounds. However, if I plug in a headset on the onboard soundcard jack the sounds work fine.

I have had this laptop with me on multiple trips but afaik this happened during one, so is it possible that something has disconnected inside the laptop itself or is it maybe a common bug with these laptops?

Acer :: Touchpad (mouse) Suddenly Not Working On 8930G

Feb 6, 2010

I turned laptop on today and the touchpad is just not working. Has this happened to anyone else? I looked for drivers but only found vista ones which I installed but still not working. Thankfully I have a bluetooth mouse but it is not that good and I like to use the touchpad.

Using windows 7 32 bit. I might install the OS again but does this sound like a hardware failure?

Apple :: MBP Wifi - Connect And Browse For A Couple Minutes - Sporadically, The Internet Will Just Stop Working

Feb 27, 2010

I recently went on a plane trip back home and I am having major issues with wifi connection in my family's house.

They have AT&T router/modem (combo?) and no one else in the house has any issues connecting with it.

What happens is I can connect and browse for a couple minutes or so, but sporadically, the internet will just stop working (not the wifi, it still shows my connection exists). I just won't be able to browse or make use of the internet at all!

I wonder if I might have banged it up or something on the plane ride? Since other laptops in the household are not having wifi issues, I am lead to believe it is just me.

HP/Compaq :: My HDX18

Feb 11, 2010

I bought my HP HDX X18T-1200 CTO approx. 6 months ago and it was installed Vista on it. I upgraded it to W7 (clean install, of course) and I think W7 is a great OS, and way better than Vista. But, as i remember, ever since i started using W7, my problems with this laptop started too. Generally, my laptop has 4 main problems:

1. My eject button and bass/treble slider aren't working! I've read a lot of users are complaining about this issue but some of them say they can make it work. I'm wondering how they do it (and how can i do it, of course ).

2. When I install MediaSmart, QuickPlay, Tone Control (or whatever they are called) program that has volume/bass/treble indicator, it doesn't work properly and keeps popping up (especially it happens when I close the laptop's cover or wake up the computer from the hibernate mode). So I deleted all the software related with this. When it pops up, my bass/treble sliders (but not the volume slider) are malfunctioning, too, bass and treble levels just keeps increasing and decreasing, increasing and decreasing, increasing and decreasing...

3. My remote control buttons doesn't work at all. I think it's a software-related issue (because it was working a few months ago, my remote control and its batteries are okay too). As I said, Currently I have nothing which is related with QuickPlay, MediaSmart etc. installed on my computer, i think that's the problem. Which program(s) should I install?

4. The issue that annoys me the most is, sometimes (it happens especially when I close the laptop's cover or wake up the computer from the hibernate mode, too) my touchpad enhancements doesn't work, it can't even recognise my taps! At first, I thought it's a touchpad-related issue. But one day, when I can't use the enhancements, I turned on a key grabber software (the software which shows the key codes) and I see the codes of bass and treble slider's buttons! The computer thinks I press the bass/treble slider's buttons constantly bu I don't even touch them!

HP/Compaq :: Hdx18/dv8 Lcd

Jan 6, 2010

I somehow have a nick on my HDX18 LCD. From what I can see, the LCD is actually behind the front bezel. I did a google and there's only one place in the net (Pchub) I can purchased a front bezel [url] The store is in Singapore and it is a used part. There's no guarantee that the part is scratch free.

Does anyone know whether the LCD front bezel can really be replaced and anywhere else I can find the part. HP don't have them and they insist on replacing the WHOLE LCD instead of the bezel.

HP/Compaq :: Core I7 HDX18

I'm looking for an 18.4" / nVidia GTX / Core i7 notebook; So far the HP HDX18t has been the most impressive notebook that I've found and have been interested in -- barring the CPU. Does anyone know if there's any plans for a Core i7 HDX18 notebook anytime soon?

HP/Compaq :: HDX16 Or HDX18

Feb 21, 2009

I am a designer (graphics, website, multimedia, video) so while I don't play a lot of high end games, I do work with a lot of high quality imagery. (Note: I don't do much if any 3D rendering, so I'm safe there.)

Now I've been looking for a new laptop because the one I currently have (HP dv8000) is actually "owned" by my "day job" (also design) and I have been "let go" so the laptop has to go back. I have been very happy with this HP, and have looked at many in my search, but always seem to come back to the HPs.

Originally I was looking at another dv model - the dv7t I believe - but called HP's sales line and after a few questions the sales rep said without a doubt I need the HDX line.

So I've come to my question. I gave myself a $2k budget, so the closer to that the better, but I *do* have a little extra to play with in case something pops up. And having that extra is making my decision hard!

Should I go for the HDX16, maybe save a few bucks, or go for the HDX18 and upgrade to a dual-HDs and quad processors and the 1GB video card?

HP/Compaq :: HDX18 Blu-ray Volume

Jun 1, 2009

when I pop in a Blu-ray movie, I'm getting pretty anemic sound and I need to turn the volume all the way up to get it to a decent level. Even then, it's pretty weak.

However, when I'm playing a game (like WoW), the sound is big and full and I actually need to turn it down most of the time.

Why is the sound output so bad when watching BR discs? Anyone else experience this difference in volume and quality of sound? My DV7 was the same way with BR discs. Maybe there is a setting I'm missing to adjust this?

HP/Compaq :: Windows 7 On HDX18

May 28, 2009

Everyone should be dumping Vista, and embracing W7, especially when you figure as a general rule you should be formatting your C drive and reloading your OS at least annually, and W7 is available freely from microsoft HERE until July 2009, and will be fully functional till March 2010. Many of us in the owners lounge have already made the jump, and you will be hard pressed to find any complaints. Who knows, they may have a discounted W7 install disc ordering link at hp.com like they do for Vista Ultimate.

One of the benefits of W7 is running XP in compatibility mode.(virtually) To run this the best way, you will need to enable "virtualization technology" in your bios, at the "system configuration" tab. LJCook wrote a nice little guide HERE.

Concerning that row of buttons above your keyboard... I am trying to refine this process, so that you need not install all the MediaSmart bloatware unless you want to, and still have a functioning row of buttons, so check back here in a few days, but in my 32 bit version, I installed the audio driver listed below, as well as the mediasmart MPV, and then the mediasmart smartmenu update, (both listed on the HP HDX driver page under Vista 32), and now I have fully functional smartmenu button control..........

HP/Compaq :: DV5T Suddenly Got Really Slow

Apr 18, 2009

when i first got it, right out of the box without messing with services or changing anything, startup was around 40seconds. i could crysis on super high at about 27fps.

Now, i installed GTA4, which is the only other thing i did after crysising, no messing with services or installing other stuff, and my startup = about 1min, even though i take out the rockstar social club from startup.

I got really ticked off, so i reinstalled vista. complete format, everything. didn't mess with services or startup or anything, just let it run on its own. my startup is now 1min 45 seconds! and i can only crysis on medium at 23fps.....which really sucks.

does anybody have any ideas why? I have posted this question in yahoo answers and i get all sorts of people who don't read and tell me to disable this service, disable stuff in my startup....i have the exact same number of startup items and services running on those 3 scenarios.....

HP/Compaq :: New HDX18 Stopped Booting Up

Jun 27, 2009

This is my second HDX 18 Laptop sent by HP in the last month. I've had this one for about a week. Everything was fine when I went to bed last night. This morning when I went to start it up it stays at the first screen (the one with the bios logo and tells you to press f10 for options) sorry if I am wrong on describing that. I can get to the Bios but I get 7 loud beeps before it enters. I am now running the system diagnostic tests on it because I have NO idea what else to do!

I don't know that much about computers so I would just ask that you use beginners terms.

now I am getting something that says "Start-up Test" Failed "Boot device not found" (3F0)
What does this mean?? ****

HP/Compaq :: Popping Sounds On HDX18

Aug 31, 2009

I have an HDX18 with IDT HD Sound (Vista Ultimate 64-bit). I've noticed an annoying popping sound with most applications. For instance, when using Trillian instant messenger, when I receive a message the speakers make a distinct pop at the start of the "ding" and at the end. The sound itself is clear, but always initiates and concludes with some kind of pop or click.

This is the same for all Windows sounds (which I've now disabled because of the audio annoyance). I tried disabling the Dolby effects through the IDT control panel, but that made things worse!

HP/Compaq :: Water Damage On HDX18

Feb 7, 2010

I have an issue on my 8 month old HP HDX18 laptop....my 3 yr old son was watching a video and accidently spilled 1/4 glass of water on the laptop.

The lappie shut off and wouldn't turn back on. I quickly disconnected it from the wall and removed the battery. Then I opened up the case up, took apart the mem, HDD and left it outside in my backyard today to dry up and then put everything together and booted up. Laptop boots up usual now BUT the wireless/volume are disabled. Some of the arrow keys are also not functioning normal either. While its obvious its not a total h/w failure, I have some doubts on the mobo/keyboard.

I do have the HP warranty but I'm pretty sure it doesn't cover water damage.

HP/Compaq :: Upgrades Possible For A HP- HDX18 1010EA

Mar 28, 2009

I recently purchased a pavillion HDX18. standard configuration as far as I know, see below:

Processor: Intel Core2 Duo CPU P8400 @ 2.26GHz
Memory: 4,096MB (2x 2,048 SODIMM)

Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT

Hard drives 2 x 232GB ST9250827ASS

This is a nice system, but I have some spare cash at the moment and am looking to improve it.

What has been suggested sofar is :

Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad Processor QX9300 (2.53Hz) for the processor

UpGrading to 2x 4GB DDR2 or DDR3 DIMMs for a total of 8GB.

The graphics card I have been told can not be touched as it is a part of the mother board.

So the only components left where I feel I may get more speed is the drives. Saddly I have sofar been unable to find any information regarding the replacement of the current "disk drives" with solid state ones.

HP/Compaq :: Display Driver Update HDX18

Feb 13, 2009

I have a weird behavior of my brand new HP HDX18 (running Windows Vista 64 bit).

The Laptop does not play BluRay DVDs any more. It only worked two times. I can access the BluRay file system so I assume that the BluRay drive is working. Then trying to watch the movie with either HP MediaSmart or Windows Media Center, both programs hang and need to be stopped via Task Manager.

HP support recommended a video driver update - but...

When I try to install the recommended update of the display driver from the HP HDX18 support site, it installs and the laptop remains working (I hear sounds when receiving new emails or when wiping my finger on the finger print sensor), but the result is simply a black screen. Same thing when using the nvidia beta drivers for notebook chips.

I tried to first switch to Standard VGA, then removing the old nvidia package, then installing the new driver. Same result: A black screen.

All I can do is doing a system recovery to get a working display again.

I did the BIOS update that I downloaded from the HP site as well. I currently have the Spyder software for screen calibration running.

HP support also recommended a "hard reset" of my windows installation, but since I just finished the complete installation of all programs I need, this is not what I really want.

HP/Compaq :: Burning Recovery Discs For HDX18

Jan 9, 2009

I tried to burn recovery discs for my new rig with Sony brand DVD+Rs, and after gathering info, writing, and finally checking, it tells me it's unsuccessful (this is after burning disc 1 of 2). I've tried a few times with the same result. Anyone know what the deal is here? Do I need a special high quality disc or could it be something else?

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.

HP/Compaq :: DV5-1155ee- Wireless Led Suddenly Orange Although Wireless Is Enabled

Jul 15, 2009

Windows Vista Ultimate SP2 (64-Bit) (problem is also there with Windows 7)

I sometimes try to connect to a network, then the wireless led suddenly orange although Wireless is Enabled. My friend who has an XP system can connect to that network in the cafe just fine so does everybody else, but on my system, it says connecting, then the icon turns orange as if there was no wirelesss card installed.

I am using the Intel WiFi Link 5100 AGN v12.2.0.11 Driver which was installed through Windows Update along with HP Wireless Assistant v3.50.2.1

Now I have an orange icon for wireless, although wireless is enabled in both device manager and through the touch key.

the icon will turn blue if I restart and wireless access will be restored, but I will lose it again if I try to connect to a wireless network.

Dell :: D830 Suddenly Getting HOT!

So for the past month or so, my D830 has been getting incredibly hot - something it has never done before. In fact, I used to 'brag' about how cool and quiet it was.

Now, about 20 - 30 minutes into computing, it's fans whirl at full speed and the entire bottom and right palm area get very, very, hot - even when the notebook is on a hard, flat surface.

Dell :: M1330, Fan Suddenly Constantly On

Nov 3, 2009

About two weeks ago I noticed my Dell M1330 fan was constantly running on the slow speed. Whatever I did, it just wouldn't shut up. Especially when I was running a graphically demanding game, the fan would go nuts, running at maximum power.

I followed a tutorial to clean the dust out of the fan but it didn't fix anything. Today, I got frustrated with it, followed a tutorial to undervolt my CPU, downgraded my nVidia drivers to 167.45 (which apparently lowers GPU temp) and installed I8Kfan to try and fix it.

With I8Kfan, it is kind of like it used to be. I've had the computer for a year and six months and before this it was running almost completely silently unless I was watching a long movie/using heaps of tabs in a web browser/etc. Now, if I don't have I8Kfan set to kick the fans in at 60c they go all the time.

I even tried downgrading my BIOS to A14 because I read here that it could help. Still, no dice.
