I live in the northeast. Unexpectedly we got a snow storm and I left my laptop in my backpack in my car for 6 hours. I didn't realize how cold it was going to get. I got laptop just now and it won't boot. It reaches the HP screen, the hard drive looks at as if its going to boot and after about 3 light flashes, everything stops working.
I press F10 to get in bios, it doesn't go in, it just hangs. I press ESC to get to the start up menu, same thing.
What did I damage here? My hard drive, motherboard?
I have important files here I need for my accounting classes until the semester ends.
I removed the battery to just use my plug in outlet to see if battery was damaged, same thing occurs.
Trying to load XP on to the above mentioned machine. Getting BSOD within minutes of inserting the XP disc while drivers are still loading. Read through a huge thread on here about XP drivers but the seem to be talking about wanting to downgrade from Vista to XP.
Anyone know the procedure to dual boot instead of just downgrading?
I am getting quite scared about my hp dv5t its getting really hot. The cpu is always at 50-mostly around 65 degrees doing normal work. I keep it on a targus cooler sometimes, but when im on campus I can only use the bare desk. I have undervolted the computer and the gpu is fine always maxing out at around 60 degrees and the harddrive is always at like 40. How do I keep this cpu from getting so high? It makes the computer really hot. Anything like undervolting, or anything free would be a + point.
i bought an hp dv5t laptop about 7 months ago.my laptop battery has been working fine since then.few days back it has has started to give me problems.sometimes it refuses to charge when ac power is connected e.g it stays on lets say 20% even though its been on AC for a long time.well sometimes it charges normally without any problems.also i have noticed that it charging time has increased a lot from about 25 minutes to 40 min. is there anyting wrong with the battery or is my ac adapter faulty?how can i improve my battery condition?
I have been trying to get 5.1 sound with my laptop, i have heard people i think with other models that make microphone jack into a center/surround output, and other have said that its possible with hdmi but i have tried with latest drivers of HMDI that i got (188.8.131.52).
so i've got a dv5t. i have the notebook raised up 6 inches in the back while on a desk, and i've also got it undervolted (down to 1.0250V on the 9x actually) and this machine always runs hot. hotter while in games (which makes sense.) but even while just browsing the net, it gets hot.
I'm considering buying the HP dv5t with the 9200 GPU. I don't really game much. Will I have the same heating issues that I read about on these boards so often? It sounds like they mostly relate to a) intense gaming; b) use of the 9600 card .
P8600 3gb ram 512mb 9600 GT 240gb 7200rpm win xp pro sp3
this picture is WITH a small undervolt and WITH antec cooling fan
ignore that min, probably a glitch
atm the only real "load" i have running is firefox, digsby (IM client), and itunes. only real cpu usage (through task manager) is firefox. when i exit everything and have nothing running, it use to idle at around 70C but after undervolt i can get it to around 60C
my HP dv5t cpu is just way too hot. I keep pretty good care of my laptop and there is not really dust inside but if I just watch a youtube video my temperatures can easily go up to 65C even with a 1.875 volt to 1.075 undervolt. I have a cooler as well, and the temperatures still are just way too hot. If i play a game like tf2 my cpu easily goes to 75C while the GPU and HDD stay well within acceptable and even cool temperatures. I don't really know why the cpu is so hot compared to everything else. My friend has suggested it might be thermal paste not being applied correctly and I was looking for a second diagnoses. Should i be sending the laptop into HP? And if so what do I call / what do i tell them for the best/fastest service? Should I try to get some Arctic silver and apply thermal paste myself? My friend says he can do it easy enough but he would like a disassembly guide on how to get to the cpu and remove the heatsink.
When i first bought it brand new from best buy right after christmas i could run it all the time and i would notice it would get hot but i never had issues with it until january when it overheated for the first time.
Right after that i went to best buy and bought a USB fan to put underneath it and it seemed to solve the problem. It would be cool to the touch. Until once again... it overheated and kept getting worse and worse.
Now i am to the point where i have to use the fan underneath it, have a small room fan blowing on it, and rob it of performance by turning it to power saver mode which is really frusterating. I also updated the BIOS to make the internal fan run faster which seemed to help a little.
Just a note, i use CoreTemp to monitor the CPU temp with the above setup, it reads 71 degrees Celsius right now.
I just switched it to high performance and it instantly jumped up to 85 degrees and is climbing... now its 88 even with all theese fans on it. I have firefox open, windows live messenger and windows media player running. Now its 92. Im gonna unplug it and turn it to powersaver.. (95 degrees and dropping...)
So my mom is going to buy me the hp dv5t and I have a question about the screen res. If I order the screen with the WXGA 1280x800 can I change the res on the laptop to anything higher to make my icons smaller?
when i connect my DV5T to my PANASONIC and LG tv via HDMI it show nothing, i open nvidia control panel, and no extra display is shown, so i have to unplug/plug the hdmi cord several times before the tv is listed....
i have overclocked 9600m gt using f.05 bios and rivatuner.i have been facing some problems with f.05 bios like slow start up and shutdown times,and some other problems.so i tried updating my bios which solved above problems but i cant oc 9600m gt anymore with any bios upto f.16 bios except f.05 bios.i have tried all bios from hp.is there anyway to oc 9600m gt using any other bios rather than f.05 bios.
I purchased this dv5t laptop back in June 2008, and it has always been reliable. I just came back home from work & now I can't even turn the darn thing on. If I hold the power on button nothing happens. The Ac adapter is still working & I've tried taking out the battery, but that didn't help.
I wanted to clean the fan of my laptop by using the air compressor periodically so that dust wouldn't build up. Is there a recommended way to do it? Does the fan suck from the bottom and blow out the back and side? I was planning to blow the air compressor into the bottom side where i believe the fan is sucking air. Is it ok to do this while the laptop is on or should I turn it off?
if the microphone jack takes stereo input? The integrated microphone is stereo, so I'm guessing the sound card will take stereo input, but I don't have a stereo mic to test.
If the mic jack is stereo, does anyone know where I can get a converter that would basically mix two mono mics into stereo? To be more clear, I have two singstar microphones and it came with a usb converter that would place each mic on separate channels. However, the input isn't as good as if I directly plug the microphone into the mic jack. Thus, I need something that is like that usb converter, but instead plugs into the microphone jack instead of the USB port. I hope that was clear enough. I don't need the computer to recognize two microphones.
My CPU is hitting 97 degrees while playing games, and idles at around 75 degrees. the only problem is this time is that the vents are clear because more air blows out of them than previously. raising the laptop doesnt help much... it only knocks about 5 degrees off and still hits in the 90 degree range. could there possibly be a problem with my laptop because it shouldnt really be hitting 97 because according to intel the thermal specification for the P7350 is 90 degrees...
i've had my dv5t laptop for about 4 months now and had no problems until now... for some reason every once in a while my screen starts to fade colors and i can't see what i'm doing. sometimes it gets really bad and fades until it turns black and gets stuck for a good 10 seconds. i can still continue to do everything, but i just can't see anything.
