HP/Compaq :: HDX18t With Windows XP

Aug 14, 2009

Im thinking on buying a new HDX18t with a quad core extreme processor. Is it possible to configure these units with XP? HP seems to offer only native Vista Drivers though I thinki as long as all hardware is probably identified it can be possible to find all the necessary drivers for XP.

HP/Compaq :: XP On HDX18t

May 4, 2009

I am starting this thread, because there was good information over in the 18 owner's lounge, but at 550 pages deep, it's hard to find. I'm going to organize this by putting the dedicating the next 4 posts to specific information and updating as often as I can. I will not be going into detail outside of XP Pro 32 and 64 bit varieties, and I only did a 64 bit section as a courtesy, since I have no reason to use 64 bit with anything i am doing. If information, such as drivers, applies, it will be listed. My configuration is the 1020us model, with no TV Tuner, or SSD drive, so I will have no first hand knowledge about them, but will be relaying anything I find.


For the record, I am no guru. I am just someone who was fed up with Vista, and had to use XP to run certain applications. As such, I will need and welcome the help of any of those out there who come up with a better way. No one person can accomplish this, and it is a community effort..............

HP/Compaq :: HDX18t

Aug 12, 2009

Came close to buy a laptop from Xoticpc.com...I'd say I came real close.

What finally made me go with the HDX was the deal I got. The price was great (30% off) and it had all I wanted. So in the end, the deal was so good I just couldn't pass it up and now I'm just waiting for it to arrive at the end of the month.

Here's what I got:

HP HDX18t Premium Series Notebook PC
* Windows Vista Ultimate with Service Pack 1 (64-bit) with DVD media
* Intel Core2 Duo Processor T9900 (3.06 GHz, 6 MB L2 Cache, 1066MHz FSB)
* 8GB DDR3 System Memory (2 Dimm) - For 1GB Nvidia GeForce GT 130M........

HP/Compaq :: HP Now Offers HDX18t With T9900

Jul 8, 2009

I noticed today that HP added the T9900 CPU to they HDX18t customizable builds, but for some reason it says the following:

Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo Processor T9900 (2.93 GHz, 6 MB L2 Cache, 1066MHz FSB)

the Intel T9900 is 3.06Ghz, and not 2.93 Ghz, the 2.96Ghz is the T9800. Obviously the mistake can be that it is infact the T9900 and they had the Ghz wrong, of they mean to say T9800.

HP/Compaq :: Intel XTU With Qx9300 HDX18T

Jul 12, 2009

HP recently added the QX9300 CPU to the list of processors for the HDX18T Notebook. My question is, will HP Include the Intel Extreme Tuning Utility with the notebook? The Intel XTU will allow you to overclock the QX9300 Extreme processor... it would be stupid to pay so much money for the cpu without being able to overclock it... Intel claims that the utility will ship with OEM systems?

HP/Compaq :: HDX18t- Is My Computer Dying

Feb 14, 2009

My computer is couple week old HP HDX18t. When the logon for windows Vista ultimate 64 pops up, part of the screen goes black. From the left hand side of my screen black streaks come about half way across the screen. Its almost as if my computer were turned on its left side and someone drew a line graph that was filled in black beneath the line. (best way I can describe it) It only lasts a second, then goes away. I don't seem to have any other graphics problems.

HP/Compaq :: Brand New HDX18t With Bad Hinge Panel

Sep 12, 2009

I just received my HDX18t yesterday and noticed that the upper and lower hinge cover does not fit together. In fact it looks like the factory pried it back open - look at attached photo. I called the HDX support line who transferred my to sales who transferred me back to the HDX support line just to find out that I have to send in my laptop to get it fixed in stead of them just sending me the part. The problem is only cosmetic so I don't want to have to send my new computer away for several weeks! Has anyone had a similar experience? Do you think if I talk to the right person at HP they'll just send me the part?

HP/Compaq :: HP HDX18t External Display Resolution

Jan 25, 2010

I have a HP HDX18t w/ Windows 7 Home Premium and the Nvidia GeForce GT 130M video card. I'm trying to hook up a Dell 30" LCD monitor with a native resolution of 2560x1600 via the HDMI output using a HDMI to DVI cable. Doing so, the system will only allow the external Dell a max resolution of 1280x800 while the HDX screen stays at 1920x1080. The 1280x800 look really bad. I want to use its native resolution of 2560x1600 or atleast the 1920x1080. When I use VGA output, nothing shows up on 30" (blank black screen).

Using my 24" Dell, I can get 1920x1080 either via the VGA or HDMI (to DVI) fine. Based on my research it seems to be a limitation of the Nvidia GeForce GT 130M because it just doesn't allow that high a resolution (i.e. no dual-link DVI capabilitiy). Is this true? Or am doing something wrong?

Is there any solution in using a 30" monitor with the HP HDX18t? Will one of those Matrox DualHead2Go devices work to run the 30" and 24 inch monitor simultaneous at 1920x1200. I'll be fine with that. My wife is firm in using the 30" monitor we have. Is this a loss cause and I have to get another laptop that will support a 30" external monitor? If so, any advice on which one.

HP/Compaq :: HDX18T Bluray Players Freezes Vista64 Or Win7-64

Dec 20, 2009

I am having trouble playing bluray discs on my HDX18T. The result is the same whether I'm on Vista64 or Win7-64. I would put in a disc and it would launch the HP DVD player. When navigating through the disc menu, the entire computer would freeze at random spots and there's nothing I can do but hold the power button to brute-force a reboot.

I have NOD32 and Outpost64 installed.

HP/Compaq :: Windows 7 Accessing Windows XP's Files Wirelessly

Dec 7, 2009

with a new computer, hp dv6 on windows 7, i need to transfer windows xp files over.
so it's sort of like drag and drop, except wirelessly.

the windows xp is a desktop with a router configured and the laptop configured to use the router for wireless access...

ive been trying to understand how all this works, but i cannot simply manage to access windows xp, or using windows xp to access windows 7!

i have a cat5 cable if that is needed... but i dont know what to do with it..
Even if it's not wireless and with the CAT5 cable, i am willing as long as it gets transferred, i just prefer wireless

and i think i rea that Homegroup is not compatible with Windows XP so what do I use?

it's also confusing that in my Network Map on windows 7, it does not pick up the shared documents folder on my desktop.

HP/Compaq :: HP G60 And Windows 7

Oct 21, 2009

My dad owns an HP G60. He hates Vista so we tried to get xp on it with absolutely no luck. It wouldn't install or work on the machine whatsoever. When my dad heard about windows 7, he got high hopes for his laptop once again. He wants to get windows 7 on it but with our recent failure, I thought I would ask people what they thought first. So NBR experts, will windows 7 install on an HP G60?

HP/Compaq :: DV6894CA Windows XP

May 20, 2009

I have windows XP installed on my dv6894ca notebook computer, all went fine and I followed the guide posted here and used some of the drivers, the rest I obtained from the HP Support site for my notebook. My problem is that my laptop seems to be running very hot compared to what It did with Vista. The fans are on a lot more, and the notebook is hotter to touch than it was running Vista. It's almost like the CPU isn't slowing itself down enough, or the GPU isnt. Im not sure why it is doing this, any pointers or tips would be nice. It just seems like with XP everything gets hot, faster, and doesn't cool down that well.

HP/Compaq :: Windows 7 On Dv2500

Nov 14, 2009

I know hp doesn't support windows 7 on their dv2500 models. I figure i can install it, 7 will find most of the drivers automatically, then I'll have to search for a couple on my own. Any of you install 7 on a 2500? I'm guessing i can just take drivers from the dv4 or another similar model,

HP/Compaq :: How Should I Install Windows 7

Oct 24, 2009

I have an HDX18t with an SSD partitioned for Vista and the Win7 RC. When I get my upgrade disc for Win 7, I'm considering installing it over the Win 7 RC partition and leaving the Vista partition in tact for now in case their are any problems with the install. I've read that you can do a clean install even with the upgrade disc. Is this a viable and/or advisable method?

HP/Compaq :: Windows 7 Pro RTM On Dv2000z W/SSD

Aug 21, 2009

Just got done installing Windows 7 Professional (x64) on my three year old dv2000z.

CPU:AMD Turion x2 1.8 GHz
HD: Crucial 128 GB SSD

Windows 7 Performance Index is as follows.
CPU: 4.6
RAM: 5.1
Graphics (Desktop): 3.3
Graphics (3D): 3.0
Primary Hard Disk: 7.0

Needless to say. The combination of Win7 and the SSD have brought it back to life. Even if it dies, I'll still have an SSD to put in my next laptop.

HP/Compaq :: HP Zv6000 & Windows 7

Mar 14, 2010

I have a HP zv6000 with the exact model being 6007us. I wanted to know if anyone has tried putting windows 7 on the laptop. Ive researched but with no straight answer, ive read that the pc can hold up to 2GB of Ram and that with windows 7 installed, it can read 4Gb. Im happy with the way it is functioning with XP but ive heard that with windows 7, it would be faster, save battery, and might help with overheating. Ive recently had trouble with the laptop overheating and ive cleanded out the entire pc, use a chill mat, but it will out of no where go from 40c to 90c. Can windows 7 be put on with no problems being kind of an old laptop? If so would it help a bit with it overheating?

AMD 64 3200
2Gb Ram
