HP/Compaq :: HP DV6700t Notebook With Defective MotherboardHP Won't Fix

Apr 15, 2009

I bought an HP laptop for 1300 dollars a year and 3 months ago. The laptop's manufacturer warranty expired in January. So in the beginning of April my laptop died for no reason. I took it to the local Geek Squad in Jensen Beach, FL, and they reluctantly told me it was the motherboard. Now I didn't purchase the extended warranty from HP, but since the laptop is barely a year old and it just died out of nowhere, I've called HP to see if they would help me out. This is the second HP laptop which motherboard has died this year for me. My mother's laptop's motherboard died in February and they swapped hers out for free. Apparently her model qualified for a free motherboard but mine didnt.

I've been arguing with countless customer service people, being transferred all around, getting promised to be contacted and never contacted. I've escalated my problem twice now with HP to hear from case managers and I've yet to hear from them despite their promises.

I've got the invoice from the Geek Squad to prove that it was a defective motherboard. I saw another person at the Geek Squad TODAY while picking up my laptop with the same exact problem, with an HP laptop! Why should people pay 300 dollars to make sure their laptops last more than one year? They may not be obligated to fix these problems by law but it'd be the right thing to do seeing as how it was their fault. In todays economy I can't afford 500 dollars to fix everything when HP initially put a bad motherboard in my laptop in the first place!

And to top it all off, my hard drive ALSO fried -because- my motherboard had fried!

HP Pavilion 17 Recovery :: Bios Recovery From Legacy Csm?

Jan 28, 2015

I changed my HP to boot with legacy CSM, but I couldn't boot from the Windows 7 boot disc.  The laptop was shipped with Windows 8 configured for UEFI boot before my change.   The screen after boot is blank and now I can't even get to the bios menu. 
I have tried a Windows 8 USB recovery drive, but the computer doesn't seem to try to boot from flash, even with the hard drive disconnected and the CD tray open. 
I watched a video of a man disassembling an HP Pavilion completely down to the base plate, but I did not see a back-up or RTC battery anywhere in the computer.  If I could find the bios back-up battery for removal or reset the bios somehow with the hardware, i would do that.  I waited for 4 hours without the main battery attached without any change.  At this point I don't know if this model Pavilion even has backup battery. How to reset the bios to default UEFI setting without a bios menu? Note that pushing F2/F8/F9/F10/F11 and a whole bunch of other keys does not bring up the bios menu at boot time (like it did when it was in UEFI mode).
My next steps are to use the HP Recovery Media application on a 2nd computer to create 6 Window 8 DVDs and see if these will boot from the CD.  If that doesn't work, I'll contact HP support and see if they can send me a custom recovery disc. 
It seems strange to me that I can't even get to a bios menu in legacy mode.  Is this normal?  I suspect that my configuration change corrupted something and no booting will work any more.  If booting from disc doesn't work, I think I'm stuck with trying to drain whatever back-up power source keeps the bios in-state, however long that is.

HP OS/Software :: Pavilion Dv6 / Windows 7 SATA Storage Driver?

May 28, 2014

I've recently purchased a new hard drive and continuously recieve an error message when I try to install the software for it. Here is the exact issue I'm having: [URL] .......
I've confirmed the BIOS is locked in AHCI on my laptop model, so the solution is to update the SATA storage driver to the latest native Microsoft driver, but I don't know how to do that. The only driver available on my system is "Intel(R) ICH8M-E/ICH9M-E SATA RAID Controller"
Operating system: Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit (Fresh Install)
Laptop Model: HP Pavilion dv6t-7000 CTO Entertainment Notebook PC 
Hard Drive: Western Digital Black2 Dual Drive

Sony :: SZ160p Sata 1 Or Sata 2

Mar 9, 2010

Has anyone installed a SSD drive in this model with success? If so, does the BIOS need to be upgraded? I have a Vertex 120 SSD drive I'm not using and am thinking about putting it in the Sony and installing Win 7/32 bit.

I would like for all the current functions to work such as the camera and video card. Would this be a big issue or should I just reload the original OS(XP).

HP/Compaq :: PATA Or SATA Blu-Ray DVD Drive

Mar 11, 2009

I am having problems with some Blu-Ray DVDs in my DV9774ca with a optiarc BC-5500A ATA.
When I put some Blu-Ray DVDs in the drive starts to spin and makes the normal searching noises for 30 seconds and then it stops without doing anything at all.

I decided to try download a firmware update, but the site says not to flash SATA drives with PATA firmware.

How can I find out what it is? I can only assume its SATA. The firmware I found is for PATA!

Also I assume that the firmware I already have is older than the downloadable version (not from H.P.). The downloadable version is 1.05 from November/08. I bought my laptop in Feb/08.

HP/Compaq :: Native Sata Support

Jan 31, 2009

I have an HP dv9000 laptop.

It came with Windows Vista, at one point I was dual-booting Vista/XP, and I am currently using Windows 7beta.

I recently went in my bios settings and tried to enable native sata support, and after that, my computer wouldn't go into Win7, until i disabled it again.

It was enabled when i first got my computer, and i had to disable it for XP compatibility. I figure, if it works with Vista, there's no reason it wouldnt work with Win7. Perhaps it's configured to run without the setting, so enabling it effs it up and confuses it. is there any way i can enable it again, preferably without having to do a full OS install?

HP/Compaq :: Trying To Install Xp Over Vista No Sata Option

Mar 18, 2009

I have a HP DV2000 (BIOs states it is a 2500) that I am trying to install XP over vista.

I have gone into the bios to disable the SATA but there is no option to do so. I do have a external floppy to use. I thought I was computer savy but am feeling kinda dumb. Should I start with a flash? What model am I actually working on, 2000 or 2500.

HP Pavilion G7 Lockups :: Goes Into Hibernate Mode On Restart

Mar 12, 2014

I have a 2 yr old Pavillion G7-1329 wm with Windows 7. I use Windows antivirus and firewall along with Malwarebytes for spyware. I have noticed recently when I download or update anything, instead of restarting as before, it hangs up and after about 5 minutes it goes into hibernate and won't come out of it.
I have to do a hard power off.  
I have done a couple of restore points but it doesn't solve the problem.
I do use a cooling fan to prevent overheating although it does still get quite warm.

HP/Compaq :: EliteBook 8530p- E-SATA Port Does Not Recognize HDD (Vista 32)

Sep 21, 2009

OS is Vista x86 32-bit.

We couldn't for the life of us get the Seagate HDD recognized when plugged inside the eSATA port. Worked fine via the alternative IEEE1394 connector, though. The "super-duper" trick recommended by the manufacturer, consisting of mere rescanning drives with the HDD manager in Computer Management did not effect in anything. Nor did installation of Intel's hard drive manager (which came with a driver update under the veil)

But the dealer whom he bought the HDD from insisted that the HDD worked fine via eSATA, so it doesn't appear to be a hardware problem, nor could a defective cable be the culprit, since he used the very same.
