HP/Compaq :: HP ZV6000 Still Worth Upgrading (FX-55)

Mar 24, 2009

I'm thinking of upgrading my ZV6000 to a FX-55 (San Diego), right now it's got an Athlon64 3200 in it. I've found some used FX-55 on eBay for around $120, and some 1GB SO-Dimm for $33, so the upgrade will cost about $170 after shipping. Is it worth it to do this upgrade?

HP/Compaq :: Zv6000 Fans

Mar 9, 2010

i was noticing that the center fan is always on and the one on top of the processor is always off until the computer gets too hot then it turns on. Is there any way to always have both fans on? Ive been having what seems to be overheating problems. I tried recovery my computer but is always turned off when formating the partition because the fans would spin like crazy until i stuck it in the refrigerator then it completed the recovery. No joke i know it sounds silly but it worked. i opened and dusted the computer and just flashed it with the latest bios. Is there any way to always have both fans on?

Speedfan reads: HD0 38-42C
Core 50-57C "Seems to hot to me"
Temp1 32c-35
On normal opporating.

HP/Compaq :: HP Zv6000 & Windows 7

Mar 14, 2010

I have a HP zv6000 with the exact model being 6007us. I wanted to know if anyone has tried putting windows 7 on the laptop. Ive researched but with no straight answer, ive read that the pc can hold up to 2GB of Ram and that with windows 7 installed, it can read 4Gb. Im happy with the way it is functioning with XP but ive heard that with windows 7, it would be faster, save battery, and might help with overheating. Ive recently had trouble with the laptop overheating and ive cleanded out the entire pc, use a chill mat, but it will out of no where go from 40c to 90c. Can windows 7 be put on with no problems being kind of an old laptop? If so would it help a bit with it overheating?

AMD 64 3200
2Gb Ram
ATI 200m

HP/Compaq :: Windows 7, Is It Worth The Upgrade

Nov 10, 2009

Some people may remember me as not liking Vista too much, and going out of my way to keep XP or installing XP in place of Vista.

I have used Vista for some time though, and familiarized myself to it. I used it for about a year if anyone is interested (still have XP on my main laptop though).

I have been out of the loop regarding technology and software, and last week, I found out that Windows 7 came out. I remember reading about Windows 7 and heard its supposed to be this "GREAT AWESOME NEW OS YO" and "waaayyyy better than Vista... cant wait for it to come out". So I got excited, made plans to buy a new HDD and install it on my ancient but still running dv9500t. Before I actually make that sort of investment and commitment, I went to Best Buy to try it on their laptops...

To me, its just like Vista. It looks and acts just like Vista. Am I missing something here?

Are there supposed to be great improvements? If so, then what? And how true are these claims?

A quick look at the new Windows 7 site by Microsoft showed me that they are comparing the Windows XP from the stone age to Windows 7, rather than compare Vista and Win7... that makes me laugh and wonder. The things that they list about Windows 7, I noticed that Vista had them too, with the exception of "shake the window and only focus on it". Whats going on here?

HP/Compaq :: How Much Is High Capacity 6-cell Battery Worth

Feb 8, 2009

I have 2 extra high capacity 6-cells (compatible with dv4, dv5, and several other compaq models) that i don't need because hp will be sending me my replacement dv7 soon and they dont fit. i want to sell them but i don't even know what a good asking price would be(hp does not even sell them individually on their website). they've been sitting in my fridge for the last month and have hardly ever been used, one of them i believe is still 100% capacity.

HP Pavilion Zv6000 Lockups :: Laptop Keeps Freezing - Mouse Stuck

Jul 18, 2014

I just got around to trying out this laptop from a few years back.  It was stored and before that it had only been used a few times.
It's been freezing *every* time I use it.  Mouse just freezes in place and it's stuck.  I tried doing a fresh install with all of the system disks and it still froze.  I then tried to upgrade it to Windows 7, it still froze and it was pretty slow, so I did another fresh install with the system disks.  Now I'm back to WinXP and it's still freezing.
I checked the event logs and it doesn't seem to register anything - maybe freezing too quickly? It seems to freeze whenever I do heavy web browsing or transferring files on my network via wireless, But I can't be sure and that might be a false lead, it just seems to happen when I'm doing those.
I think it may be a broken fan, The center fan runs smoothly, but the fan with the cooling unit on the side never seems to run at all.  Is there any way to tell if the fan is broken?  Is there any way to manually make it run so I can check if it's working?  Should it be on all the time, or does it only come on when it gets hot?

HP/Compaq :: Upgrading Ram Of Dv6244us

Sep 3, 2009

I've been thinking about upgrading my computers ram and after doing a quick search I found this. Now assuming this everything is correct I should be able to add another gb of ram to my system. My question is, will I need to do anything such as increase the fan speed to stop overheating, or should adding another gig with the default fan settings not give me any trouble as far as overheating goes?

HP/Compaq :: Upgrading Processor

Mar 26, 2010

im thinking of upgrading the processor on my relatively old Compaq V6133CL. I currently have dual-core AMD 64 X2 TL-52 with 1.6GHz and want to upgrade to dual-core AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-60 with 2.0GHz. I did research on my own and asked HP tech support, which is pretty useless, but still need some advice. My question is will it be supplied with enough voltage, seems like it needs 1.075 / 1.10. The socket type is S1 in both. Are there any other things that I should be aware of?

My current system:
1.6 GHz AMD Turion TL-52
Mobo: Quanta 30B7 with F.3D bios from HP
2Gb DDR2

HP/Compaq :: Before Upgrading To Windows 7

Dec 2, 2009

I've finally recieved my windows 7 disk from HP

But before I go and upgrade/install everything I have a few questions.

1. Am I able to do a clean install? Does the product key in the kit allow for me to do this?

2. How would I go about doing a clean install properly? (paranoid about mucking things up)

3. After doing a clean install, am I able to use the second disk to update the drivers, etc. or can I only use it when doing the upgrade option?

HP/Compaq :: Upgrading Dv2 To Dv2z

Jun 16, 2009

The idea is to replace dv2's MV-40 CPU with newer AMD Athlon(TM) Neo X2 (L335) or AMD Turion(TM) Neo X2 (L625). Any thoughts on this?

The questions are:

1) do dv2 and dv2z have the same motherboards?

2) how complicated would it be to replace CPU in a dv2?

3) is it worth it?

HP/Compaq :: 8510p Hardware Upgrading

Jan 2, 2010

I'm using my 8510p. I was smart enough to buy an extended warranty, and it has proven to be quite usefull. (2 screen repairs and a new GPU.)

Now, over the time I have upgraded my notebook. The main HDD was upgraded with a 640GB drive, and I replaced my DVD/CD drive with a special bracket that allows you to install an extra Hard drive. Until so far, all these upgrades could easily be reversed for warranty purposes.

Now, I'm thinking about upgrading my original WSXGA+ screen with a WUXGA screen. (1680x1050 to 1920x1200) As since I'm using my computer a lot for graphical applications and CAD related stuff.

Now, I found a supplier that can supply me the screen, but he only recommends me to change my screen with something of the same resolution. He fears that the inverter may not be able to pull the higher resolution, nor my motherboard/gpu fail to recognize the new part.

Do you guy's think that this upgrade could be possible?

Personnaly I would go for it, since the 8510p was offered with a WUXGA screen, and the CCFL of the new screen would be exactly the same as the (current) WSXGA+ screen.

HP/Compaq :: Upgrading Dv6000 Screen

Mar 1, 2009

My 2 years old dv6000 display yesterday started to show a thin yellow vertical line about 2 inch from the right of the screen which run from top to bottom, and after a bit of googling, I found out it's unrepairable and I need to replace the screen

Anyway, after reading some of the threads on this forum, it seems to me that it's possible to replace the screen with a higher resolution one, albeit on dv9XXX ones. Has anyone done this upgrade on dv6XXX? And what screen (spare parts no/maker) did you get? Was there any 'misfit' with the hinge/panel/connector/inverter?

Vidcard=NVIDIA Go 7400
Screen =15.4" WXGA HighGloss BrightView
Screen max resolution=1280X800

HP/Compaq :: HP DV7 2015txquick Question: Upgrading CPU

Jun 14, 2009

I am about to purchase the HP DV7 2015tx, with the q9000 cpu.

I am happy with everything, except the potential future performance of the CPU. The only remaining question for me is whether it is possible to upgrade the CPU to say, a q9550 if in future I am not happy with the speed of the q9000. I'm afraid I don't know the motherboard type or what it supports.

Also, if it is possible, might this create heat issues or like instability?

HP/Compaq :: HP G60-535DX : Upgrading Memory

Nov 29, 2009

I just bought a new HP laptop and it has 3gb ddr2 memory. It says that the max memory is 4gb, but I was wondering if you can put in say 6gb or 8gb? Reason I ask is because I saw a sony laptop that was essentially the same with the memory being the exception. On the Sony, it came with 4gb and was expandable to 8gb. Oh, and my laptop is running Windows 7 64bit if that matters. If its not possible, Ill just upgrade to 4gb... If you guys could though, maybe tell me what limits a pc's ability to run a certain amount of memory? Mine has 2 slots for memory and I have seen some 4gb sticks for sale, but Im not going to spend the money on something that wont work.

HP/Compaq :: Upgrading DV6408nr To Draft N

I am looking to upgrade the internal wireless card of my dv6408nr to a card that supports draft N networking. I tried an extra Intel 4965 a/b/g/n card my friend had and the computer would not even boot. Is anyone aware of an internal card that would work? I hate to order something and have it lock up like the Intel card caused. Alternatively is there a way to make the Intel 4965 work? FWIW, I am looking to avoid a USB or Express Card solution.
