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 :: 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.

AS I SAID MY CONFIGURATION MAY BE DIFFERENT THAN YOURS SO WHEN I MENTION DEVICES BELOW - YOURS MAY BE DIFFERENT

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 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 :: 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 :: How To OC This CPU

Oct 21, 2009

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

Jun 30, 2009

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 Dv2

Jul 14, 2009

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

Jul 29, 2009

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

Oct 25, 2009

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.......
