i can't access the HP's online ho to dissembel video section no more. i had taken apart my DV9500CTO notebook to replace the thermal paste with AS5, and now i want to replace it again with IC7D thermal paste, and i can't seem to find the website that had all the step by step videos on how to dissember the whole laptop. i read through the forums and this link is what most of them are reffering to [url] but i'm not sure if this was the link or not... the link that i used last time was also from HP as well, but it never asked me for no log in or anything. i would click on the link and it just took me to place where i would go find my laptop and it would have small videos on it on how to dissember each part. can some one please show me the way? i know the user manuel kind of shows you how to do it, i've read it, and i beleve the videos are much better, as i can open my laptop up just like in the videos.
Has anyone on this board purchased a new Dell computer and used Dell Financial Services to pay for it? If you have what has been your experience in having to deal with DFS? Good? Bad? If you did use DFS to make your new computer purchase and as you began to make your monthly payments to DFS did you begin to encounter problems with DFS and ended up transferring your balance owed to DFS to another major credit card?
I'm getting a new computer. My old one is at my parents house and has my entire iTunes library on it. I know I can't just plug my ipod into a new computer and upload the songs onto it, but I'm sure there's a way to transfer the library from my old computer to my new one.
How exactly can I do that? I assume it has something to do with an external hard drive, but I'm not sure.
I am planning on doing a clean install of windows 7 on my computer but when i do so is it possible that i can just sync my ipod to the empty itunes library and let it put all my ipod music on my computer? or will it ask me if it can erase all the data on the ipod and sync it to that itunes library.
She has over five thousand photos on her old Mac tower (10.4) and is backing them up to an external hard drive. It seems that when she goes to the Pictures folder she can copy and paste them over, but it does not preserve any of her naming/etc. that she has done in Iphoto. Unfortunately, she has a lot of important information tagged and would like to preserve it. I am at a loss as I do not own a Mac nor do I have unlimited access to her computer. I have scoured Google for about an hour with no luck. Does anyone know of a way this can be done efficiently? The one option I have come across is Time Machine, but she would have to upgrade to Leopard to get this function. I am not sure if she will be able to at the moment, nor am I sure that her external drive will work correctly.
I have a feeling that I am missing something very obvious here, but I have looked everywhere and cannot find the Bluetooth services on my laptop (W530, Windows 7 Pro 64 bit, ThinkPad 1x1 11b/g/n Wireless LAN PCI Express Half Mini Card Adapter for Windows 7).
When I do FN + F5, I get the Lenovo Wireless Radio menu, but it only lists Airplane Mode (off) and 802.11 Wireless (on).
I have check BIOS security settings for I/O devices and Bluetooth is enabled. However I cannot find any references to Bluetooth under Device Manager ->Network Adaptors.
Is it possible that this laptop is not equiped with Bluetooth?
I have used Aperture for quite sometime now and have quite a few thousand photos in the Aperture library from my DSLR, I just installed Lightroom as a trial to give it a whirl and see how it compares to Aperture. My question is, how do I import all the photos that are in my Aperture library to Lightroom? I haven't seem to found a way and links from a google search suggest that the photos that are imported through Aperture are stuck in the Aperture format, so I can only view them through the program itself not as an individual file in Finder, is this true?
I placed and order on June 16 2009 for the new Dell Studio 14z Laptop.... The estimated delivery date was July 22, 2009 (). I called to find out about the hold up and the rep put me on hold told me it was in production. This went on for 3 days.
I decided to cancel the order but when I called Dell they tell me the odrder was shipped. I check website and it still says in production. Now I am pssed and I don't want the Studio 14z I purchased a Mac Book from the local APPLe store........
I paid for the Dell with my dell preferred account ...... can I just refuse the delivery and get my money back or should I accecpt the delveiry and then call dell to ship it back. Also how wwould that affect my dell preferred account. How long will it take to get credited back to the account.
i got a new hp tx2 and when i turn it on it came loaded full of "crap" so i wanted to reload 7.. and they didnt send an OS cd... So i went ahead and created a recovery cd and when i reloaded still had all the crap installed.. so i called them up, and was told that HP can not provide me with an OEM CD.. they can only "sell" me a recovery cd which has all their software and drivers preloaded.... So the technical guy is right? i cant get Windows OEM media from them? how stupid is this? dell, toshiba, fujitso, sony send the cds but hp doesnt and they dont even give you an option to buy it.....
When you first recieve your HP HDX or other HP laptops, they come loaded with all types of Media Software and it wouldnt make any sense to keep all the music/dvd players, photo veiwing programs, etc. So my question is, which ones did you decide on keeping and which ones did you decide were junk?
So yesterday after getting home i decided to use my laptop. Well i opened up the screen and noticed my wifi and sound buttons were orange but the sound was still on and so was the wifi. First things first i tried new drivers... No luck. After this i decided to open up the laptop and check the cable. Durring this i got the wifi button to work for about 5 seconds im not sure what i did but it still dosent work. I even tried another media bar cover from a working dv7 still no luck. So does anyone know where my problem might be or do i have to send this laptop into hp?
My HP dv1000 hasn't been working too well for several weeks. Recently, when I started it up, it showed the HP logo, then just said MBR error. I was following these instructions on how to fix it [url], but when I put a new XP CD in and pressed a key to boot from CD, it came up with this error message:
PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel Boot Agent.
Does the dv5t come with a media reader by default, or is that an add-on accessory?
On mine, on the left side, closest to the front of the computer, I see two slots (SD MS/PRO MMC XD is written above them) . One is covered by a piece of metal that looks like it may be able to be pulled out, but I haven't tried. The other is below that. It is just a hole that looks like a memory card can fit into, but I am not sure whether it is active or not.
my HDX 16t via the digital TV tuner. Spectacular picture. But... I had the speakers on my notebook cranked up as high as possible, but still the football game wasn't loud enough and too hard to hear. The speakers are definitely capable of putting out more, as they do with other applications. There's something about Media Center--the volume is just not high enough. how to boost speakers in Media Center?
I downloaded the newest driver for the nvidia 8600..Which is like a year old now..Sometimes I would get the old blue screen crash and dump when viewing certain dvds..So I checked nvidia's website and got this driver and now I can't even watch dvds in the windows media player 11..I like to use it and other players work like the built in Quickplay..
I thought it was the codec but I am not sure what to do..I have tried a couple things installing codec packages and what nOT..Downloaded the new Divx 7 package and it gave me back avi and some files will now play..But some are s till a green blank...Also the dvd playback won't even do that or play sound..It kinda starts and everything freezes and its just black..The WMP locks up and becomes un responsive...Have shut it down and start over..I was thinking of going back to the old nvidia driver that I had but now sure how to do this..
way to import a .AVI file into the iTunes movie Library. I tried to drag and drop it, copy and paste, and it didn't work. Would there be an easier way to make an .AVI file into a .m4v, and then import it that way?
This is what I have, and I imagine HP probably use the same drivers for most of its late model laptops on windows 7 for the touch activated media button i.e. the back lit strip above the keyboard just below the LED screen that let you activate WIFI, sound. playback..etc..
I have read from several posts that windows 7 install fine on HP laptop just that the touch strip driver does not work with the factory drivers.
for the E6400 media bay (I hope that's what it's called, I'm referring to the location where the optical disk is). I'd like to add a SSD before my trip to overseas and I have a few questions about this:
1) what kind of SSD should I get? I'd like to get a 128GB or 256GB SSD. Is it any 128/256GB SSD or do I need to get a specific kind?
2) If I want the SSD to be the primary drive and a 500GB HD to be the data drive, do I need to put the SSD in where the HD is and then put the 500GB HD in the optical disk caddy tray? (I bought the newmodeus caddy tray)
Does anyone have Dell's external media bay for Latitude E or Precision models? I am interested in knowing whether it only works with Dell laptops or if it can serve as a generic DVD reader when I put my optical drive in it (useful for my netbook)
I just got an i9300, that I'm having fun setting up. I've already done a couple hardware upgrades (OUT; 1GB PC4200, IN; 2GB PC5300. OUT; 60GB/5400, IN; 160GB/5400). See "sig" for rest of specs.
I've got a copy of Windows MCE 05. I'd like to set this up with Dell Media Direct 3.0. I've done a ton of searching the forums here, and a few other sites. I've printed out several hard copies of "How To Install MD3" threads for reference.
OK...so, here's the crux. I need a copy of MD3. I "acquired" (nudge, nudge, wink, wink, say no more) a copy, and burned the ISO to DVD. When I first used it, it set up the partitions, and then gave a wierd error about "not being able to find the Media Direct PLAY button...". Setup halted in it's tracks. I ran it a couple times, same error. After the 2nd try, I exited out and installed MCE05.
My hard drive had the 47MB (EISA Configuration) partition on the front, my C: drive, followed by a 2.01GB "Unknown Partition". Looks right, but, both the 47MB and 2.01GB partitions are empty. 100% empty.
So, I install MCE05, all the drivers, Nero 7 and Cyberlink PowerDVD 6. Defrag. I then put the MD3 disk in, and let it do it's thing. The Installation Notice comes up, and then it halts IMMEDIATELY thereafter, giving an error of "This system is not supported by this Reinstallation DVD. Installation will now exit."
Are there different versions of MD for different machines/OS'es/etc?? What version do I need for my system/OS??
What are the chances that I can sweet talk Dell into sending me a copy, where this system is out of warranty and I'm the 2nd owner?
If the chances of that (above) are "none", does anyone have a copy of the "correct" version I can "borrow" so I can get this set up?
Anyone know of a way to make the QuickSet media keys work with iTunes when using another application? Big annoyance to have to navigate back to iTunes when I want to change the song or stop it, though the Win7 Jump List controls help a bit.
I have a new Dell Studio 1737, with Vista Home Premium which I'm happy with ... apart from this Dell Media Direct thingy which is driving me berserk! Intermittently, and for no apparent reason, it jumps up a big black box (Dell MediaDirect), then another box (MediaDirect Home) which seems to be for running films etc.
OK I may use it sometime in the future, but hopefully when I request it ...
I can't find it in the Startup files, nor in Task Manager.
