HP/Compaq :: HP HDX 16Touch Buttons Faulty- Adjusts Volume/bass And Turns Off Wireless Randomly

Jun 10, 2009

if anyone has had the same problem as me with the HP HDX 16. Randomly, even as I am typing here, the volume bar (with treble, bass etc) will appear on screen and will increase/reduce very quickly as if im pushing down on the touch buttons, this stops me being able to type, sometimes crashing the computer.

At the same time, this fault also occurs for the wireless LAN button to the far right, which will randomly disable (turn red) as if i'd touched it, sometimes causing the desktop to crash but more importantly causing me to lose connection and have to reconnect on a frequent basis.

I've had the notebook for over 6 months, and while i did have this occur on very rare occasions, since a couple days ago it has increased to a point where it happens all the time, including after a restart. I have tried searching through google to see if the problem is known, and i have seen a similar account on a customer review website. I have used HP health check and followed the updates supplied including that for the touch smart buttons and a BIOS flash.

Acer :: Wireless Bass Ackwards

Dec 5, 2007

I recently bought an Acer Extensa 4620Z on Black Friday for real cheap! I really like this computer and wanted to put XP on it so I could like it even more. Turns out, the computer rejects anything but Vista . I know that some people were sort of able to get XP on this computer, but I have tried just about everything short of a network installation (not that that's much different from an actual CD). After a few days of it just sitting there with nothing on it, I got around to using the recovery DVDs/CD that I had to ORDER from Acer. They installed just about everything as it came when i first turned it on.

The reason for the purchase of the recovery discs was not only to get it back to the "original" (not quite) state, but to try to fix this annoying little wireless problem that has arisen since i first formatted it. What's happening is the card comes on when the computer is booted as well as when Windows is installing. There is a switch that turns on a light that lets you know when it's on and to see network activity. The problem here is that it has now REVERSED. When the computer used to boot, the light would come on and i'd have to turn the wireless off since it was slightly annoying, and the light would go out. NOW, when the computer boots, the light is out, but the wireless is on. And when i turn it "ON" the light comes on and the wireless is disabled! WTF is going on?

Acer :: 8920G - Randomly Turns Off/has A Blue Screen

Jul 2, 2009

for the past 3 days my Acer 8920G has been acting..very strange. It randomly turns off/has a blue screen, then I can't use it for 6-10 hours before it works again, but then only for 30 min then repeats. I've checked the temperatures for the HDD/CPU/GPU on the time I was on, and the HDD was 58C, CPU and GPU were around 50C (With FF3.5, iTunes, MSN and Vuze running). I've taken off the back panel and removed the dust but that didn't do anything at all. This morning I turned it on after leaving it upside down (back panel on) to vent all the air (if I left it open more dust would've gone in) and it wouldn't even hit the desktop. Kept crashing when it hits the desktop (that's basically what happens when I try and turn it on after it has a blue screen or turns off). So I opened the back panel and let my hand hover over the components - no heat what so evr radiated from it, which means it can't have overheated...right? Now I can only run it with the back panel off, which I'm doing now in a well ventilated area.

HP/Compaq :: Dv2700t- Wireless... Caused Blue Screens/crashes Randomly While Using Internet

Mar 21, 2009

I had a dv2700t, with a problem I described in this forum some time ago... I didn't manage to solve the problem and HP couldn't/wouldn't "fix" it... the problem was that the wireless... caused blue screens/crashes randomly while using internet (downloading large and small torrent files for example) this happened ONLY when using WIRELESS connection.

I now, after nagging on HP for months, own a dv7-1290.

Imagine my surprise when I get the same problem...the only difference that I've been able to discern between this problem and the old problem is that this computer doesn't crash the UBUNTU live cd that the other computer managed to do......

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: W520 - Screen Turns Off Randomly Until Shake It

Dec 28, 2014

I have a w520 that is out of warranty. From time to time, the screen just turns off while I'm using it (no, not a dimming/screen off during idle isse). Everything else works perfectly though. I have to shake the laptop (lol, seriously...) and the screen comes back on! It's been getting more and more frequent. What gives? Is this a known issue? Is there some loose connection somewhere inside? What should I check?

Lenovo SL500 ThinkPad L R/SL :: Volume / Mute Buttons Next To Keyboard Have Not Worked Since Upgrading To Windows 8

Jan 1, 2014

I've recently installed Windows 8 on an SL500 Lenovo ThinkPad.  One of the three messages in Action Center is a problem with the hotkey utility.  Lenovo's Support page recommended installing gevu65ww.exe.  The current version is 4.22.1000.  After this is installed, I click on "finish" and get the notice that "this program does not support this system.  The volume/mute buttons next to the keyboard have not worked since upgrading to Windows 8.  The Windows 8.1 has the same problem.

HP/Compaq :: IDT Sound Setting [Optimize Bass Routing]

Aug 8, 2009

when you go to the IDT control panel, under...

Settings > Bass Management > Optimize Bass Routing ...

if i enable this, which setting makes the bass appear louder? 3db or 12db?

it says that "This setting determines the levels for the lowest frequencies that this device can play." does that mean the 3db setting will allow greater bass?

Dell Inspiron 1525 :: Losing Wireless Signal Randomly?

Apr 6, 2013

So I've had this laptop for over 5 years now (Dell Inspiron 1525) & about 2 years ago I put Windows 7 on it(the laptop came with vista). I haven't had any problem with it up until November of 2012. The problem I'm having is my wireless connection get's dropped constantly. Randomly & especially if I'm watching a video online. It does it on every browser. And I cannot reconnect to my WIFI without restarting my computer or putting it in hibernate mode & resuming windows. 

It actually stopped for a month & is now back worse than it was before. I contacted Dell & they ran a diagnostic with me & said I needed to change my hard drive. So I have(this was 4 days ago) & the problem is still occurring. I've taken it to geeksquad even & had them run diagnostics & they said they found nothing either. I can't seem to find a solution.

Here's a video of what happens sometimes when I'm just on the computer listening to [URL]

The stuttering sound happens when I'm playing any kind of audio. If I'm not playing audio, the stutter wont occur but the wireless signal will drop. I've also looked into the device manager & I found this.

Acer Aspire E1-570G :: Wireless Connection Randomly Drops On System

Oct 27, 2014

I bought my Acer Aspire E1-57G 2 months ago. U put win7 64bit on him and installed som drivers. All worked fine for some time. 1 week ago my internet slowed down randomly, and only on this notebook. 

I googeld a little bit and i decided to go for win 8.1 and original drivers. I installed everything but the problem with WLAN adapter was still there. If i started loading a web page sometimes it loads completely with no problems and everything is fine for some time (5 min) then pages start to loading slow or not at all. And like that all the time.

When I download something it ether downloads "fast" like 500 - 800 kbps or not at all 0kbps. On other notebooks wireless connection is ok, and at the same time when thisone is slow others do well. Win update is not slowing connection (OFF), firewall is ok, power management set  to be max for wlan adapter. I tried every solution that i found on the internet.
 
So what is the problem (is it WLAN adapter) and how to fix it?

HP/Compaq :: Faulty Processor On My DV6812NR- XP Will Only Install With ACPI Uniprocessor HAL

Feb 19, 2009

I just picked up a HP DV6812NR notebook. It has a AMD Turion 64 X2 processor (TL-60, 2.0GHZ). It's a barely used refurb model that the guy was selling because he couldn't get the OS to install. I bought it off him cheaply hoping it was just a software issue.

This model has an IDE hard drive so there was no need to slipstream SATA drivers into my XP install CD. However the XP install would not work right away. It successfully formatted the partition and copied files, but would hang after the installation reboot.

After a bit of research I tried selecting a different HAL by pressing F5 as the XP setup loaded. Funnily enough if i selected ACPI uniprocessor PC, the installation did complete. However unsurprisingly, XP then only saw one processor in task manager, and performance seemed just a little funky.

Does this suggest a bad processor? If so that wouldn't be the end of the world as I could probably pick up another TL-60 for around $100. Even cheaper I could pick up a Turion 64 X2 TL-50 (1.6 GHz). Any reason that lesser processor wouldn't work in this machine? What would the performance hit be like if this notebook is to be primarily used for watching movies and surfing the net?

HP/Compaq :: HP Dv6-1235cl AC Power (brick) Adapter Buzzing Noises- Normal Or Faulty

Aug 10, 2009

I have been looking online and getting mixed results regarding buzzing noises from ac power adapters. My old hp dv6000 laptop powerbrick did not make buzzing noises as loud as my new dv6-1235cl from costco.

I noticed that a lot of people now hear buzzing noises from their ac adapter. Then I came onto this website.

[url]

Is this a bunch of bs or are they for real?

I can hear the buzzing noise when I put my ac adapter on the table, but almost non existent when its on the ground. I want to know if this will be a fire safety hazard in the future? I dont want my house burning down even when this thing is plugged in.

Dell :: I Need A Bass Upgrade For The E6400

Jan 31, 2009

I just received an e6400 this last week. I had read about the fact that the speakers are only tweeters but the sound from this thing is awful.

We're replacing a Compaq V5000 due to needing a faster laptop and the Compaq's audio quality blows this away.

If I never planned on listening to music was on the laptop, I'd probably overlook this deficiency but I guess it's going back to Dell this week.
