HP/Compaq :: HP Dv6t Quad EditionReplacing HDD With SSD

Dec 15, 2009

I will be receiving a dv6t Quad edition soon. I am planning to replace the original HDD with a SSD. The original HDD will go in a external eSATA enclosure.

Questions/comments:

- Are there any step-by-step guides out there for replacing the HDD?

- I have read in forums that doing a fresh install on SSD is better than cloning your existing drive. Is that correct?

- In case of any issues with the installation on SSD, I can always put the original drive back in.

- If I dont delete the MBR on the original drive, will it create an issue in the external enclosure along with the new MBR on the SSD?

HP/Compaq :: DV6t Quad Ed.

Feb 14, 2010

[url]

This model has customized & quick-ship option.
I notice the customized version is fitted with Geforce GT 320m - For i7 processor (no other option), while the Quick-Ship model is fitted with GT230m WITH Physx.

I've heard about Physx before, and I always think it is another component bought separately (at least for PC desktop 1-2 years ago). So, is this Physx processor always present with all Geforce GT230m & 320m series, or does HP actually fit this additional processor as a bonus ?

I look on NVidia's technical specs for 320m & 230m, and Nvidia specifies that they are both Physx-ready. What does "READY" mean here ? Ready to be fitted with an optional Physx feature, or does it mean both have already integrated the Physx into 320m & 230m ? ...or do I misunderstand something ?

HP/Compaq :: Dv6t Quad Volume Control

Feb 24, 2010

every time I change the volume it goes into the separate volume popup window and whatever else I'm doing gets minimized if it was fullscreened, it's really annoying. How do I turn this off? I've been told by a HP custom service guy to uninstall Quick Touch, but I can't even find it anywhere.

(are there any other things I can do to optimize this computer?)

HP/Compaq :: Find Me A Display Driver That Will Install DV6t Quad

Feb 28, 2010

My specs: dv6t quad. i720M. 320M.

I just cleaned installed.

I already know the 320M Drivers are not yet release. Done.

But I can't find a way to install ANY driver I downloaded. None of them will install. Giving me message that there is no compatible hardware.

The only one that will install is from HP's website, but that only installs NVIDIA HD Audio. It doesn't install display drivers at all. W(T)F. Where is the display driver in that install?

I am stuck on the 1280x720 resolution and I cant go up to my native resolution at 1366x768.

I am tired of already spending countless hours downloading and searching for a driver that will work.

HP Envy Dv6t-7200 :: CTO Quad Edition Notebook / Fingerprint Reader Not Connected

Sep 29, 2014

I have an HP ENVY dv6t-7200 CTO Quad Edition Notebook.  I recently had a complete system failure and had to reinstall the Windows 8.1 operating system.  Naturally, I lost most of my programs (which I have reinstalled).  However, I can't seem to get mt fingerprint scanner to work.  I've re-installed the SimplePass software as well as the divers.  I tried a hard reset and reinstalled the current validity sensor drive.  I still can't seem to get the fingerprint reader to come alive.

HP/Compaq :: G62 Vs Dv6t

Mar 13, 2010

I'm torn between the G62 and the dv6t. Currently I see one main benefit to each:

G62 - Better Processor (I'd go with the i5-540)
dv6t - Better Battery (I'd go with the extended 6-cell)

Other then those two differences, I'd stick with 4GB of RAM and a 512MB video card. Are there any other differences between the two? I do like the looks of the G62...does it really compare (feel wise) with the Envy? Is there any reason to splurge for the Envy? I'll be using this as my everyday home computer...surfing the web, some programming, a lot of office work, a little graphic design.

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.

I found two similar models of HP DV6t laptop at Newegg.

HP Pavilion DV6-2144NR

Both are the same price however they differ a bit in specs.
The differences between are:

1. Intel Core 2 Duo T6600 2.2GHz (1362NR) VS AMD Turion II M520 2.3GHz (2144NR)

2. 4GB DDR3 (1362NR) VS 4GB DDR2 (2144NR)

Which laptop is in a way "better"? or if you can't compare these two in that way what are the pros and cons between the two differences?

HP/Compaq :: HP Dv6t Biometrics

Feb 9, 2009

I just recieved my dv6t today and decided for some unknown reason that I needed Vista Ultimate. Well in doing so I did not make a copy of the recovery disk.

After I installed all the drivers and applications the verisoft program doesn't have the option to register a fingerprint all it lets me do is passwords.

Does anyone know of another program that would work with the fingerprint reader I have?

HP/Compaq :: DV6T- Newlaptop- To Un-install

Nov 6, 2009

I have had my new DV6T for about an hour and am loving it.

Specs:

-4GB RAM
-Intel Core Duo 2 - 2.26Ghz
-ATI Radeon 4530 graphics card
-Windows 7

A few questions...

Other than Norton, Microsoft Works, and the 60 day Microsoft Office trial, what else should I un-install?

How do I set a system restore point?

I want to make a backup of my system now and put it in a blank disc. What disc should I buy to do this (DVD-R)?

Is there any way I can test my CPU and Graphics card to make sure everything is at optimum performance?

HP/Compaq :: HDX16t Or DV6t For Gaming

Mar 19, 2009

Buying a new laptop soon... choices are a HDX16t (P8400 and Nvidia 9600M GT 512MB) or a DV6t (T6400 and ATi HD 4650 1GB). I'm just looking to play Everquest 2, and even though it's a 2004 release, it's pretty intensive. So I'm wondering if I should deal with the slower CPU and slightly better GPU or vice versa?

HP/Compaq :: Dv6t Keyboardoff Center

Dec 7, 2009

I just received my new dv6t quad edition. The computer is great except one thing that's driving me crazy is the keyboard. Since there is a numeric keypad on the right side, the keyboard and touchpad are not centered to the screen. I find this to feel very awkward.

Anyone else have this issue with the machine? I know the addition of the keypad is not new to this model.

HP/Compaq :: Dv6t Laptop KEYBOARD

Dec 28, 2009

I ordered a dv6 quick-ship model from HP for christmas and I was instantly in love with it. The feature I like the most is the glossy finish on the surface including the KEYBOARD... however, there is this hard drive problem that makes a clicking sound everytime the HDD activity light blinks. So I decided to order another dv6 but this time I ordered a dv6 quad edition customized. Upon receiving the quad edition, opened it, and I was immediately disappointed. Reason is that everything on the suface is the same EXCEPT THE KEYBOARD! the quad edition keyboard is the NON-glossy one and it feels much more rough and cheap and not fit into the overall glossy appearance of the laptop. so I called the HP support and I was told that "All customized dv6 quad got the same non-glossy keyboard I got" The non-glossy one appears and feels much cheaper. I have both laptop side by side and you can totally tell the difference. Not to mention for the battery charger for the customized one I received is much more bulky( twice as big) and the box that came with the laptop is with no HP art markings because it was shipped straight from China internationally.

Pictures: dv6t customized quad edition with non-glossy keyboard: then compare this to the dv6 quick shipped with nice smooth glossy keyboard:

HP/Compaq :: New DV6t 4650 Video Card

Apr 10, 2009

I just took the wraps off my new DV6t. I live in Japan so I had to wait two weeks while my parents spent $150 dollars to ship it to me, but it finally got here and...

There's artifacting everywhere. Little pink boxes appear even when I'm mousing over things in the file explorer, and when I opened up the catalyst control center (and it shows the two 3D scenes for comparison) there was artifacting like crazy!

I tried uninstalling the drivers, but the pink boxes still continue to spawn in random places on the screen. Then I went to ATI's website but apparently they don't hand out drivers for the mobility 4650... so I had to go to HP's website and get the same stuff I had before. Nothing solved...

HP/Compaq :: 130M Gt HDX16T Vs DV6T 230M GT

Oct 18, 2009

ordered a HDX 16T when it was on discount for the 850 for 1920x1200 screen, 7450 2.1 ghz process, 4 gig ram, geforce 130M GT card.

Now the I7 dv6t is there with the 230M GT, no backlit keyboard or blueray or HD screen but...

For video gaming will the 230GT be a huge improvement?

What would you guys do? Opinions?

I can get the dv6t with 25% back by 12 midnight

HP/Compaq :: Graphics Modes, Dv5t, Dv6t

Apr 11, 2009

From what I can tell from the HP website, the current version offered for the dv5t, called dv5tse (special edition), does not have an option for higher resolution graphics mode than WXGA (1280x800). However, it apparently used to have the option for WXGA+.
The website shows the 16" dv6t as offering only 1366x768 resolution. I think that's the 16:9 version of 1280x800 which is 16:10 aspect. Is that right?

Is this correct? Does one have to go to a 17" model on the HP lines to get WXGA+ or higher resolution?
