HP/Compaq :: HP Fingerprint Readers And Pavilion DV7T

Jul 22, 2009

Do the fingerprint readers come as standard on the Pavilion DV7T? Is it just software that can be downloaded or is it hardware? I'm really confused as im thinking about buying a DV7T off ebay

[url]

its advertised as the newest HP 17.3'' Model but it not on the dell website?

Is the Pavilion DV7T the same as the Pavilion DV7-2100 series?

why there is no DV7T on the HP website?

Sony :: Elderly Vaio SZ1 Series Fingerprint Readers And Webcamneed Utility

May 3, 2010

I was asked to fix up an old Vaio SZ18GP (I think it was SZ160p in the US?) The owner's son had had a go on it and deleted the recovery partition and basically screwed this thing up beyond all belief. So no restore CD, no recovery partition on D:, nothing.

I used our institutional licence for XP Pro+SP3 to get Windows up and running and got most of the drivers from Sony Australia's website. Followed some instructions on a clean install using XP from somewhere else which helped a lot, but now I'm stuck - I have no idea how to get the fingerprint reader to run. The Device Manager has it detected and working, but I don't know if there is supposed to be a utility of some sort which allows it to start or what.

I did take the Vaio control center from Sony so I can see all that stuff, but I don't see anything about the FPR in there at all. Anyone got any ideas? I presume it should pop up and ask me to register fingerprints at some point or something, but nothing so far.

Also, got the webcam up and running with no problems once SP3 was on (needed that shutdown-freeze fix), and although it seems to work it doesn't seem to work. None of the chat sites seem to detect it. The one I am most familiar with is CamFrog - the setup page has it running fine and I can see a preview on the screen of my face looking at it, but as soon as you try to connect to a user or room it says it's non functional. Not sure if it's just screwed or misconfigured or what. It shows up fine in Device Manager and you can access it and make it take a picture in the Scanning and Camera Wizard in XP, but Google chat and CamFrog seem to dislike it.

HP/Compaq :: Configuring Pavilion Dv7t

Dec 1, 2009

I've been looking for a laptop, and I'm pretty sure I'm going with the HP Pavilion dv7t.

However, I do need help configuring all of the optional things:

I plan on using this laptop for playing newer games like Call of Duty and L4D2. Which video card is better, 512MB Mobility Radeon HD 4530, or 1GB Mobility Radeon HD 4650? Why?

Do I need to upgrade to a wireless-N wifi card to use an N router?

Is a core 2 duo 2.13GHz, 3 MB L2 Cache, 1066MHz FSB better than a core 2 duo 2.2GHz, 2MB L2 Cache, 800MHz FSB? Why?

If I opt not to get a TV tuner, is it possible to add one in later? How?

HP/Compaq :: Asus G50Vt-X5 Vs.Pavilion Dv7t Series

Jun 3, 2009

I am trying to decide what I should get between two laptops that I will get as a graduation present. To be honest, I am pretty much a total noob when it comes to laptops, so any advice would be welcome. My choices are between the Asus G50Vt-X5 or one of the HP Pavilion dv7t series laptops. My budget is around $1000.

I was at Best Buy the other day when I was shown the Asus for the first time and I really like how it looked and felt, much more than the overly glossiness of the HP laptops. However, I know HP has a pretty good reputation, as the rest of my family has HP's and they seem to run just fine.

Here are the specs for both:

Note: I used Cnet for the Asus laptop because Asus's own website kinda sucks for providing specs.

Truth be told, I like to game a little and would really like to be able to run Star Craft 2 (if that has any signifigance to you guys) when it finally comes out.......

HP/Compaq :: HP Pavilion Dv7t Refreshed. Now With 16:9 Screen And ATI GPUs

HP/Compaq :: Enable Input Monitor On Pavilion Dv7t Running Vista

Feb 10, 2009

I have a Pavilion dv7t laptop running Vista. One of the main reasons I bought this was to do audio work in Sony Acid Music and Sony Sound Forge. Well, lo and behold, I can't hear my mic input. I can record audio in using the mic input, but I can't monitor the input as I am using it to know whether it is too loud, too quiet, I am too close to the mic, too far away, etc.

I have done a lot of research on this via google searches and have found that most people solved this (on other laptops or other computers running Vista) by changing the input monitor setting (to enable it) within the windows registry. I dug all through various locations in my reg files and can't find anything on an HP Pavilion dv7t running Vista that corresponds with an input monitor setting.

This is a huge source of frustration. If anyone can let me know how to enable this, I would appreciate it. It's not a matter of right clicking on the speaker in the windows tray and changing anything on playback devices or recording devices. I have tried every possible combination of that and it doesn't work. This is something that needs to be fixed at a root level.

Why HP or Microsoft has this set as a default setting so you can't even monitor your input volume is beyond me.

HP Pavilion Dv7t-6c00 OS/Software :: Touchpad Disable Shortcut No Longer Works

Jul 14, 2014

The SSD in my laptop (HP Pavilion dv7t-6c00 CTO Quad Edition) recently died, so I got a new 120GB SSD and installed a non-OEM version of Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit (this is because my SSD apparently isn't large enough for the Recovery Disks HP sent me -- long story). The past few days I've been installing all the necessary drivers, and just about everything is working like it did weeks ago. However, there is one problem: my TouchPad can no longer be turned off by double-tapping in the top-left corner.
 
I've tried three different Synaptics TouchPad drivers. The one found on HP's website (v. 15.3.11.0), the one I get when I click "update driver software" in Device Manager (v. 15.3.29.0), and the one found on Synaptics' own website (v. 17.0.19). I've checked out "TouchPad Properties" for all of them, and they've not been of any support.

For my current driver, however, when I click on "settings" under "Tapping," there's an area called "TouchPad Disable Zone Settings," that has a checkbox that says: "Double Tap to Enable or Disable TouchPad". However, the entire area is grayed out, and I can't check or uncheck the box (though, for what it's worth, it is currently checked). I candisable it manually in the "TouchPad Settings" tab of "Mouse Properties," but I'd prefer to just get the shortcut functionality back.

HP/Compaq :: HP Dv7t

Jan 7, 2009

Here is the setup.

I have a few questions that I need clarification on.

First, is 64-bit ok to get. I've read a lot of articles stating that not many things are 64-bit and that drivers are hard to find, and so on. I believe these articles are a little old but I would like to make sure program running and such is ok.

Second, there are so many processors to pick from. You have the:
T4200 (2.0 GHz)
T6400 (2.0GHz)
T6600 (2.2GHz)
P7450 (2.13GHz)
P8600 (2.4 GHz)
P8700 (2.53GHz)

Choices can be a good thing but it's too confusing here. Is the T6600 better than the P7450?

Third, there are two video cards to pick from:
512MB NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT
512MB NVIDIA GeForce 9200M GS

Which one is better here? I would think the 9600 but that's just a guess. Seems like the 9200M GS is just now available in 512MB instead of 256MB. So maybe that one is.

HP/Compaq :: Fan On DV7t

Jul 14, 2009

Just wondering if this is normal - I'm not exactly sure how many fan speeds there are, but for the sake of keeping this simple, let's say there are 5 (1=off, 2=low, 3=med, 4=high 5=max).

My computer is usually at 2, but I notice that sometimes just watching videos can make my fan go to 3. Is this ok? I know my computer is plenty powerful so it's not that it's struggling. I guess it's because I have powerful parts and they create some heat. But it can be a little annoying for the fan to go one notch higher on something like videos.

Should I get a cooler or am I good as is?

HP/Compaq :: VT On DV7T

May 13, 2009

Does anyone know if the DV7T-2000 CTO has VT (virtual Technology) capability?

HP is replacing my DV9700z CTO with a DV7T-2000 CTO, but with the recent news that Windows 7 requires VT or AMD-V for XP Mode and not all of Intel's CPUs are VT capable, i've been trying to find out if HP wrote the capability in to the BIOS of the DV7T, The CPU HP is sending me is capable but i cant get a solid answer if the notebook itself has it.

My current notebook has AMD-V and i'm not willing to accept a replacement unit that has less capability than i currently have.

HP/Compaq :: Dv7t Cpu Fan Is Also Always ON But On A Low Rpm

Feb 4, 2009

My laptop arrived yesterday. I noticed that the fan is also always ON but on a low rpm. Disabling 'fan always on' option at the bios didn't do anything. The fan is still on all the time, again low rpm. I called customer service and we did bios upgrade, bios reset, and acpi uninstall/reinstall.. Nothing changed.

I have done another test.. I haven't heard the fan go on high speed yet. I tried playing 6 quicktime videos simultaneously and did my matlab simulation at the same time. I ran this for probably 10-15 minutes. cpu is running 100% all the time during this test. But my fan didn't increase speed. It stayed the same. the cpu temperature monitor that I have is always stuck on a certain value after the bios upgrade. I have read forums and they said that same thing happened to them, cpu temp monitoring will stop working after the bios upgrade.

HP/Compaq :: Fan Cooler For Dv7t?

May 25, 2009

I have a HP DV7t. The Specs of the notebook are in my sig.

Do you think I should get a cooling fan?

My computer runs great with no problems but I notice that it can get somewhat hot at times when I'm gaming. I don't play games too often and I mostly browse the web, but I play games on occasion.

The pic above is using HWMonitor. The max temps were reached while I was playing StarCraft.

Do you think those temps are too high for playing StarCraft? I have my computer slightly elevated in the back but wanted to know if you think I should get a fan such as the Zalman? What fan is recommended for HP laptops?

HP/Compaq :: DV7T Craps Out

I got my new DV7T on friday, it's dead by sunday . I was just rebooting and it froze at the hp logo. Turn off then on again; nada. Can't even get into the bios menu. Ugh, this really pisses me off. I only ordered the dv7 to replace my 9700t that had the video card crap out 2 weeks earlier. I'm rapidly losing any faith in any hp product . I've got my repair ticket #. How long has everyones repairs/replacements taken to get back to them?

HP/Compaq :: Overheating Dv7t

Feb 13, 2009

I'm having some issues with my dv7t.

Brief specs:
dv7t
P6800
nVidia 9600M GT
4gb OCZ RAM (I installed this)
2x 7200RPM HD's
Integrated TV Tuner

And the thing gets hot when I watch over-the-air HD.

CPUID Hardware Monitor data:
ACPI
THRM 35*C Min / 90*C Max
CPU
Core0 20*C Min / 20*C Max (shows 70/70 now...)
Core2 21*C Min / 21*C Max (shows 70/70 now...)
GeForce 9600M GT
GPU 52*C Min / 106*C Max
HD's
HD1 35*C Min / 49*C Max
HD2 37*C Min / 54*C Max

It doesn't get this hot normally, just when I watch TV. I know that media center automatically records whatever you're watching, so I'm assuming that is heating up the proc and HD, but holy crap 106*C? It seems a little excessive. Where is the video card on these things so I can try and make sure that is always in open air.

HP/Compaq :: DV7T Heat

Dec 6, 2009

Looking at a DV7T or DV7 and am wondering about the supposed problem with heat on these. Some appear to have problems and some don't. Does it depend on the build, such as having a quad instead of core 2 duo or faster video card? Are the fan or fans located in the same spot on all builds? Is the venting path more clogged with certain builds? I'm looking at a simple core 2 duo T6600 and standard ATI 4530 on the DVT7 or P7550 and ATI 4650 on the DV7. Should I plan on having any heat issues with this conservative build especially if I don't plan on doing any serious gaming? Or is each one a crapshoot that is built with some doing well and others not so with heat? Obviously heat is a serious factor in the life of the laptop and don't want this to be an issue if I can help it.

Also looking at the Toshiba P505 with 18.4" screen which from what I've read doesn't have many heating issues. But all in all I like the HP better for looks, features and components.

HP/Compaq :: Dv7t- Where Does The Remote Go

Sep 29, 2009

I bought a Dv7t and it came with a small remote and the basic question i have is:

Where does it go (if there is a slot in the laptop that can hold it)?

I noticed on top of the SD card slot thingy there is a rectangular cover with a symbol on it that is also on the remote (a rectangle with lines coming off of it to the left). Is that supposed to be taken off and the remote slides in there, or is that where you point the remote when you press buttons?

HP/Compaq :: HP DV7T Battery Options

Mar 11, 2010

[url]

running reasonably solid (and still on Vista!) I have definitely got my money's worth out of it like 1000X over .

Only a couple of issues - first, my charger went TU about 3 days before the 12 month warranty expired. I ran out and quickly snagged a Kensington replacement: pretty nice slimline that has multiple adapters, it's actually been handy as an upstairs 2nd charger. HP for the record, also sent me a brand new OEM replacement without too much hassle, just using on online service chat

OK, the matter I'm posting about: my battery has finally gotten wrecked to the point where it's good for about 15-18 minutes on performance, maybe 22-24 on low power settings.

I'd like to be semi-portable again so I'm weighing these options:

Another "stock spec" 8 cell, which I believe it a G08

I see HP offers (through various sellers) a "green" replacement, model G04. I don't think it has longer life, but it's supposed to be warranted for 3 years, plus offer a guarantee of much less charge loss (I think it's something like 95% availability the first year) and replaced pro-rated based on use. Sounds like a better option - the only thing I find peculiar is it's indicated as a 4-cell, with "8-cell" equivalent. I don't really case as long as it works!

My 3rd option is to go aftermarket with a 12-cell battery. The extra weight size isn't that big of a deal, and I even like the idea if the rear being elevated (in my office, I usually keep it hanging off the corner of the desk for better ventilation).

HP/Compaq :: DV7T Keyboard And Screen

Feb 20, 2010

I am considering the DV7T. quality of the keyboard/trackpad and screen?

For some reference, I have gone to the local electronics stores several times of the last few weeks, and I really don't like the feel of any of the NEC, Toshiba, Panasonic, or Fujitsu models (in Japan and these are the only brands the locals carry). I did however, really like the keyboard and trackpad on the new Sony F series, and I like the trackpad on the previous F even better.

Just by going by specs, the DV7T has 2 big advantages over the new F series, the ability to have 2 hard drives and price. However, just looking at the keyboard from pics and videos, it doesn't look so good, and it seems the biggest complaint is about the screen.
