HP/Compaq :: HP 6930p Fan Control

Aug 25, 2009

how to control the fan on the HP6930P?

I disabled "fan always on AC" in the bios.

The fan is always on. It doesn't disturb at the lowest level, but it ramps up every 5 mins or so for 2 or 3 seconds. I find that ramping up disturbing and would like to disable it. Considering how cool the air coming out is compared to laptops I have had in the past (Thinkpads and Toshiba) I would say HP is being conservative with their settings.

Is there a program or some bios setting?

HP/Compaq :: 6930p Or T400

Mar 15, 2010

I want to ask something about these laptops:

- Which one has better build quality?
- Which one has better display?
- Which one has better keyboard/trackpad/trackpoint?
- Which one is cooler and more silent?

Has anyone used both of them? Has anyone switch from T400 to 6930p or vice-versa?

HP/Compaq :: EliteBook 6930p

Oct 6, 2009

I'm aiming to buy a new HP EliteBook 6930p in January 2010. There are a few issues that I've read about which concern me, however.

Some of these I have read have been fixed, although I haven't seen much in the way of confirmation of this. So I'm wondering, of these, have any been fixed in the latest production models of the 6930p?

1) The lid takes too much pressure to shut and/or doesn't stay shut.

2) The battery is loose when attached (any danger of it falling off?)

3) CPU whine -- I'm planning on getting it with a P8800 and ATI HD 3450 256MB, if that matters.

HP/Compaq :: 6930p ScreenLED Vs Non-LED

Jun 14, 2009

I'm a potential 6930p buyer. I really want to know is there a big difference in picture quality between LED and non-LED screens ?

I would like to buy a model with dedicated gfx and 1440x900 screen but I would settle with lower resolution screen with LED backlight if it's better than higher res one.

By better I mean better viewing angles, brighter, better colors, etc.

Is it worth getting LED based screen on 6930p ?

HP/Compaq :: HP Elitebook 6930p Discharge

Oct 17, 2009

I just swap out the the motherboard for a working one and change all the components inside and the monitor don't power on. All the lights show the fan spins but no picture. Before I did the motherboard swap the same thing happen. The shop I took it to said it needed a discharge from the build up over time. After the unfix-able corrupt bios problem I was force to swap boards. How do I do the static discharge? I ground myself with a steel pipe took apart everything put it back together still the same.

HP/Compaq :: HP 6930p External Display

Nov 30, 2009

I bought HP 6930p with ATI graphic card, WIN 7, and connected to the external display 24" (1920x1080) trough VGA port. There is a very noticable blurry and annoying image on external display. I tried different settings, but nothing did not help. Is there any solution to this problem? could be my graphic card or vga output damaged? Since with my 4 years old toshiba notebook, image was clear.

Has anybody docking station and is DVI output working fine (clear image)?

HP/Compaq :: HP EliteBook 6930p Upgrade

Nov 2, 2009

I'm looking for information about upgrading capabilities of my 6930p.

Now it has Intel T9400 (CPU-Z tells: Socket P (478) ) processor, which is very good, but not best.

Since I purchased Intel SSD 80GB Gen 2, I noticed that performance of my notebook is limited by processor (it has 100% load while my Win7x64 boots up or while loading some big application).

I found several options for mobile processors which support PM45 chipset and Socket P:

QX9300 (12M Cache, 2.53 GHz, 1066 MHz FSB) 45 Watts
X9100 (6M Cache, 3.06 GHz, 1066 MHz FSB) 44 Watts
Q9100 (12M Cache, 2.26 GHz, 1066 MHz FSB) 45 Watts
Q9000 (6M Cache, 2.00 GHz, 1066 MHz FSB) 45 Watts
T9900 (6M Cache, 3.06 GHz, 1066 MHz FSB) 35 Watts

My current:
T9400 (6M Cache, 2.53 GHz, 1066 MHz FSB) 35 Watts

One seller on eBay told me that QX9300 will not work in my desktop without giving any reasons. This fact confused me and I wondering which processors will run in 6930p?

HP/Compaq :: HP 6930p: Screen And Warranty

Mar 6, 2010

Does 6930p come with a LED backlight WXGA+ (1440x900) screen? I read somewhere that it would come with a LED backlight WXGA or a CCFL backlight WXGA+.

2nd question: What are the differences between a refurbished 6930p and a canceled order one? Is there a chance to a canceled order 6930 be marked as refurbished?

HP/Compaq :: Is The 8440p A Replacement For The 6930p

Feb 11, 2010

I was looking at the new Elitebooks today and saw that there are now 8xxx series machines with 14" screens and that there is not a 6940p. Is the 8440 intended to replace the 6930? Also, why is the screen on the 8440x 14.0" rather than the 14.1" size that appears to be the norml? Another change in aspect ratio?

HP/Compaq :: DVI? Connecting 6930p Via A Dock

Jun 2, 2009

I'm thinking about buying the HP 6930p Elitebook. One concern I have is that it only has a VGA port and no DVI, HDMI or Displayport for connecting an external monitor. I plan to connect the laptop regularly to a 24" display.

I thought one workaround might be to get a docking station for the laptop, which has a DVI connection. As the laptop connects to the docking station via a different port, I assumed a digital video signal would be sent. However, when I called HP to confirm if this was possible, they advised me that as the laptop only outputs VGA, even when it is connected to the dock, the only thing I could do would be to connect it via the dock's VGA port; it couldn't be connected via DVI. Is this correct? I have received incorrect info from HP and Dell on more than one occasion, so I wanted to check on here. Would the DVI port work on the dock or could I only use VGA?

Also, if not, how much better would a DVI or HDMI connection be versus VGA for that size of display.

HP/Compaq :: 6930p: Un2400 Wwan Only Works When Battery Inserted

Aug 29, 2009

I am using a un2400 wwan UMTS modem on my HP 6930p (WinXP, SP3) and noticed that it is automatically deactivated when the battery isn't inserted into the laptop (PIN Code is also deactivated on the SIM card). Once the battery is installed, it works without any problems.

Can anyone confirm this being a normal issue with this modem?

(the Huawei EM770 modem on my eee 1000HG works with or without an inserted battery but it also doesn't require the firmware to be loaded first, so maybe these two can't be compared..)

HP/Compaq :: 6930p "Core2Duo Whine Noise" Has Been Resolved- Without Disabling Speedstep

Jun 12, 2009

I just got a new Elitebook 6930p and its a fantastic laptop other than the dreaded "CPU whine" as some call it. Most uneducated people believe it is the CPU that makes this noise but in reality this has NOTHING to do with the CPU. Its the power components like capacitors and coils that make the Piezoelectric Effect which causes the noise.

I could not bear the whine noise after a few days so I took matters into my own hands. Sure I read about stopping the C1-C4 states in Intels speedstep but thats not a proper solution IMO since battery life will suffer. So how can we mask or cover up this annoying noise? How can we seal it inside the laptop so it does not reach our ears? I have the solution!

Seal it up all the power components with silicon sealer. Silicon sealer is perfect as it does not conduct electricity. These components do NOT generate any heat either.

HP/Compaq :: WXGA Vs WXGA+ For 14.1" Business Notebook (6930p)

Jun 18, 2009

I've decided to purchase an HP 6930p. I will mainly be using it for business - Word, Outlook, the Internet, Excel etc. I won't be playing many games on it (if any) or be doing any video editing. I have a 24" display, which I can use for any graphics work (Photoshop etc). I'll be using the laptop about 50% of the time away from the office - at libraries, coffee shops, or other offices/meeting rooms.

I'm trying to decide which resolution to get - the WXGA or WXGA+. I know a lot of people on these forums recommend the higher res screens; however, I imagine a lot may use their systems for games, video editing, CAD, web work etc. I'll be doing intensive office work. For a 14" business machine, what is the best resolution?

Also, if anyone happens to be a 6930p user, is there any difference in brightness between the two screens? That could be a factor.

HP/Compaq :: HP Dv6 Remote Control

Dec 6, 2009

I just bought a new dv6 on black friday from staples, the dv6-1334 with a t4300/4gb ram.

Is anyone having trouble inserting their remote control into the slot on the left side of the laptop? My remote won't really fit...i can get it about 90% of the way in, but when i push to click it in/click it out, its like its stuck with sticky goo or something, it goes in really slowly to lock in place and comes out really slowly when i click it out of place.

Other than the media remote control issue, I'm liking this ALOT more than my tx2500 tablet with better cpu and graphics/video card.

HP/Compaq :: HP DV9000 With Fan Control- For The GPU And CPU

Nov 3, 2009

I have a DV9000 laptop and I have problem with the fan control and the Heat Sink. The tempeture of the GPU and CPU go very high (GPU 60 and CPU 48), but the fan runs very slow, like if the tempeture is ok and after that the computer stops. As well I want to replace the pads from the heat sink, so I would like to know which types of pads I should use for this computer and where the GPU is located, because there are three chips (the CPU in right side, one in the middle and another in the left side with the nvidia signature). my computer is Intel Duo and the bios is version D.25.

HP/Compaq :: Envy 15 Volume Control

Feb 21, 2010

Why does the volume bar have to take main focus everytime I use it causing it to take me out of full screen games?

Speaking of the volume bar, turning off the touchpad makes it impossible to use any programs until the stupid picture telling you it's turned off goes away.

I have eyes and ears for a reason! I can hear the volume going up and down, and the light on the touchpad is enough to tell me it's off!

Is there anyway to keep the hotkeys but turn off the visual reminders? =.=;;

HP/Compaq :: HP Dv7 Remote Control Won't Work After Format

May 8, 2009

When I first got my HP DV7-1285dx with Vista (64) the remote control that came with it was working fine. I upgraded to the Windows 7 beta when it came out (I didn't do a clean install) and the remote was still working and kept working throughout the several beta upgrades I did later (to newer beta versions). However when the Windows 7 RC was released earlier this week I decided to do a clean install so I backed up the important drivers and files and did a clean Windows 7 install. After that my HP remote simply stopped working, the laptop won't respond to it at all (not in Media Center and not in anything else). I was able to reinstall all the drivers (from the backup) except for one which shows as "Unknown driver" in Device Manager, and when I do a driver update and point Windows to the folder including my backed up drivers, it does recognize the device as the "HP Mobile Data Protection Sensor" but says it encountered an error installing the driver software since it "couldn't find the file specified."

I don't know if this "Unknown driver" is in anyway connected to the Remote Control problem. I have no other problems showing in device manager by the way.

Also in an unrelated matter, I am trying to reinstall the MediaSmart software the came with the laptop. I downloaded the packages from the HP website but they won't install (since they're only update packages and not standalone installers I guess) so is there any way to reinstall the MediaSmart software from the recovery discs/partition?

HP/Compaq :: Fan Speed Control @EliteBook 2530p

Feb 25, 2009

Today I got my HP EliteBook 2530p in "FU432EA" configuration. It was important for me to have an optical drive, so i chose the configuration with the 120 GB 1,8" HDD.

The 2530p looks great so far and performs pretty well... If there weren't the extremely annoying noises coming from the notebook.

The HDD with its 5400 rpm (it's a Samsung HS122JF, very slow btw, not really faster than 4200 rpm drives) makes a clearly audible, very high frequency noise and turns on/off every 30-60 seconds resulting in clicking sounds. I can live with that for the moment, because I'll upgrade to some SSD in the near future.

But the second annoyance is the fan inside the laptop. Even when idling in windows with temps below 50 C the fan turns on every few moments. Unfortunately I haven't been able to control the system fan or even read the actual speed. I tried Notebook Hardware Control, SpeedFan and HWMon, but neither of them reported me anything about the fan. I tried undervolting the CPU with RMClock (which doesn't really support the new Penryn CPUs) and got a few degrees less, but this wasn't enough to keep the fan quiet. In the BIOS there are no options regarding the fan, only some "keep fan always running on AC power", which I disabled.
