HP/Compaq :: HP Damaged My Laptop And Won't Fix It

Apr 4, 2009

I sent my 8510p laptop in to HP to fix a video problem and they replaced the video board, sent it back to me. When I got it back it was very clear that there was still a problem, the video signal intermittently clouded up like there was a disconnect in the cable - I figured the tech didn't press the connector cable firmly into place. I sent it back for the 2nd time.

I got the laptop back and all my video problems were fixed; however, there was now a 2 to 3 inch long crack around one of the screws on the bottom of the case - like someone took a chisel or a screwdriver to pry up at the case. I told customer service and they sent a box for me to pack it up and send it back. This is the 3rd week in a row without my computer at home - it's starting to cause major problems because I need my computer to study.

I get a call back this last Friday from billing at HP telling me they aren't going to fix the case unless I pay them $200 even though it's very clear that the crack was caused by an incompetent tech trying to get into the unit. There was no damage to the shipping box and this kind of crack simply could not have happened during shipping - HP also tells me that because I got it late Thursday and didn't report it til Sunday morning, that I can't be covered for shipping damage (even though there was no shipping damage). They want $89 to send it back to me unfixed too.

I told them I wouldn't pay them anything for damage they caused - I left a message on the voicemail of the billing department supervisor...............

HP/Compaq :: Ribbon Cable Damaged- Dv9000

Jan 28, 2010

I have a dv9000 series and the the ribbon cable that goes from the power button to it's respective conector on the motherboard is a bit damaged one of the metal contacts at one end has "skinned" off.

What would you do, look for a replacement online, i doubt a shop would stoc such a thing, of do these cables tend to be standard, the model number of the cable is E118077.

Also you should be able to completely remove a motherboard, including detaching it from the screen and still power the fan on, obvioulsy with the battery connected?

It's this cable, [url]
could you somewow slice the end off and then cut a small section so you have some new contacts showing?

Dell :: Need To Save Hard Drive Files From Laptop Where Drive Might Be Damaged

Jan 3, 2009

Something recently happened to my laptop, and now whenever I boot up my laptop, I get a message stating that "No drive detected", and I don't know if the hard drive might be damaged or not.

I tried connecting the hard drive directly to a desktop pc since it's a sata hard drive, but my desktop pc just froze on the boot screen whenever this hard drive was connected.

I also was going to try and use a hard drive external case to maybe connect it to the pc this way, but I wasn't sure if it would work

Dell :: Have I Damaged My Card

Aug 27, 2007

I have a Dell Inspiron 9400 with a rev0 7900gs Go, and I recently flashed it with the 7900GTX bios (790GTXUN.ROM) and followed the info given on post 1 here: [url]

The clocks for this BIOS were set at 500/600 by default, but I went ahead and clocked them up to 530/630, then eventually up to 575/700. I am running ATi Tool 0.27b2 and ran the artifact test, it ran for about 10 minutes and then some artifacts started to show at about 93c. As soon as they started coming up, I canceled the artifact test then rebooted, and re flashed back to the original 7900GS BIOS. I have been playing WoW for the last 30mins and it has been running fine but I am worried that I may have damaged my card, would anyone please be able to tell me what you think or what could have caused the artifacting?

Dell :: Windows 7 Damaged My Inspiron 1520?

Sep 18, 2009

I recently did a clean install of Windows 7 RC over Vista on my inspiron 1520. Windows 7 appeared to automatically install the correct drivers for everything

except the graphics card, as everything else appeared to be working properly (e.g. wireless, scrollpad, etc.) After manually downloading and installing the NVidia driver, the aero stuff started to work.

However shortly afterwards, I noticed that the left side of my screen seemed slightly dimmer than the rest of the screen. The problem gets even worse, as the backlight would suddenly turn off after shorter and shorter periods.

I thought maybe the windows 7 drivers were incompatible with my the laptop, so I uninstalled windows 7 and installed Vista back along with the original drivers, but that didn't fix the problem .....

Dell :: D600 Hard Drive Damaged

Sep 14, 2009

I have a Dell Latitude D600 that came with a 60gb hard drive. I had a D600 previous to this one with a 40gb hard drive and I swapped this hard drive into the newer D600 since I had all my important data stored on it already.

Just the other day when I was performing some maintenance on the D600,

I accidentally dropped the 40gb on the floor when it was out of the computer. I thought everything was fine because it seemed to boot up when

I re-installed it, but I hadn't actually tried using it until today

HP/Compaq :: Odd Sounds From Laptop

Oct 30, 2009

Recently I've started to hear some odd sounds coming from my DV2. I've been hearing pops, clicks, clacks, something that sounds something is constantly being turned on and off, and a very faint sound that sounds almost like a fan, but is coming from more near the middle or right side of the laptop than where the fan is.

Just wondering how bad these sounds are, or if they're natural laptop sounds that for some reason I just never heard.

HP/Compaq :: Is The Dv6t A Bad Laptop

Mar 13, 2009

I just ordered one and it should be here soon. I'm not using this laptop as a gaming machine because I have Xbox360 already doing the job for me. With that being said, I still don't want a crappy laptop that isn't stable (As far as graphics). I'm going to be using it for basically word processing, viewing movies, music editing, light video editing, and web browsing of course. I just need to know if it's a good machine, if anyone with the laptop care to let me know their experience, that was would be dope. If it's not any good I could just send it back for an exchange or get my money back. I paid around 625.00, that was with my student discount, but it came up to 700.00 before that.

HP/Compaq :: HP Laptop Categories

Feb 25, 2009

One thing that many people have noticed HP doing is "strangling" its mainstream laptops. For example: the drop of the 9600M GT in the dv5t right before discontinuing it, and no longer offering it on the special edition.

Many forum members also have said that HP seems to be steering people to the more expensive HDX series for gaming.

This consensus has been re-enforced by HP itself. You will notice in their online store that the category once called "Versatile Performance" is now "Everyday Computing." This is pretty transparent...

HP/Compaq :: Laptop Won't Start

I've seen lots of posts about laptops that won't start but none with the exact same problem as me. When I press the power button it lights up and it sounds like it's going to turn on but nothing happens. There's nothing on the screen. It sounds like it used to if you closed the lid while it was on.
