HP/Compaq :: Dv8t- Fingerprint Reader Refuses To Install

Mar 25, 2010

I got my dv8t about a week ago, and the fingerprint reader that was pre-installed kinda worked, though it would drop out from time to time. I tried downloading an updated driver, but it flat-out refused to install. I didn't think much of it, but when I tried to do Windows Anytime Upgrade, it destroyed everything on the hard drive, including access to the recovery partition. It's just gone.

Now, I've rebuilt the system from a Win7 OEM DVD, and everything works perfectly... except the fingerprint reader. The program that is causing the problem is Validity Sensors DDK. It gets to "Please wait while Windows configures Validity Sensors DDK."

After about 10 seconds of that, the box disappears. The hard drive stops, and there is no longer any trace of the setup program in the Task Manager. I have the latyest version of Digital Persona, and it says no fingerprint reader is installed. However, Validity Sensor shows up in the device manager (VFS301, 2.1.0.2) and Validity Sensors DDK shows up in Add/Remove programs. I can uninstall it (really, i think it just removes it from the list) but the "repair" option does nothing. I have tried different versions of it that I've found in various places.

SP42724
SP43934
SP44089
SP45020
SP45021
SP45995
SP47224

Of the above SP's, I have tried installing them in regular mode, Admin, Compatibility mode, XP mode, and Safe Mode. None of them will get any farther than I have described above. One time, and only one time, I got the following error message:..........

HP/Compaq :: MediaSmart Gone

Feb 15, 2009

My MediaSmart just stopped working. I have tried system restore to a point where I knew they worked. I have redownloaded the updates from HP for MediaSmart, Quicklaunch, and BIOS. None of those made a difference. I just continue getting the error -

"HP MediaSmart SmartMenu has stopped working A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available"

Of course - HP does not offer the full software anywhere I can find.

HP/Compaq :: MediaSmart MVP Crashing

Feb 19, 2010

I have a new DV8T and I'm having a problem with the MediaSmart MVP crashing after i start the program. I have searched here and other sites for a couple of days trying to find a fix and haven't. Here is what it is doing...

It will crash within a minute of the program loading, it doesn't matter if it is in music, video or picture section. It has done this from the very start. It also does this from a clean install of Windows 7. I can't figure out what is causing it to crash all the time.

HP/Compaq :: Webcam [MediaSmart]

Aug 18, 2009

on my old laptop, a lenovo, if i wanted to change the settings of the webcam to lets say black and white, or low light mode, all i would have to do was go into the properties and change it ... then for whatever webcam application i used whether it was facebook video, ooVoo, skype, the webcam would be black and white in low light mode.

but with this HP webcam ... everytime i open up a webcam application the HP mediasmart webcam opens up, and then all my settings from the last time are gone. and when i try to leave a facebook video the mediasmart webcam application doesnt even open up.

BASICALLY, what i am asking is... is there any way to save the webcam preferences on this HP webcam so it is the same for whatever application i use ?

HP/Compaq :: New DV7-2040us OwnerIs It Just Me Or Does MediaSmart

Jul 5, 2009

I am having a hard time separating the wheat from the chaff with the buttload of worthless crap HP installed on this otherwise good machine.

I domped the obvious stuff. Now I am trying to play DVDs and am running into problems. MediaSmart cant make it through a single DVD without hanging for munites at a time. Is MediaSmart just crapware like the rest?

I like the idea of a media oriented laptop, but if the software is crap, what good is it. I like WMC, but it just cuts back to mediasmart for DVDs.

I want to dump the junkware, but I need a DVD component for WMC. Am I doing something wrong and somehow spoiling the greatness of 'Mediasmart', or do I need to junk it? If I do, how do I play DVD from WMC without spending money on something I should already have. Is there a free DVD play app that plugs into WMC, or a hack to unlock some builtin DVD functionality?

HP/Compaq :: Dv7t Refuses To Play Any Games

Mar 3, 2009

Anything that tries to load full screen or any games for that matter now refused to run on my dv7t.

I did a fresh install of the operating system AGAIN tried WOW and SWAT 4. NO go.

It loads the game and goes back to the desktop. This is without me ever even hooking up my external monitor to it.

I'm about ready to send it back and buy another mac.

Anyone have any solutions? I'm running vista x64. I tried installing the drivers at hp.com for vista x64 and it told me they were NOT x64 drivers.

I then installed the newest ones from nvidia.com. I also have the same problem with them.

Dell :: I9400 Failing, Refuses To Replace The Unit

Feb 14, 2010

My friend has Inspiron 9400 that's on its last legs, it keeps turning off at random times, graphics on screen sometimes become corrupted. The laptop does not seem to be overheating and the fans are clean.

We've contacted Dell as he has a 3yr Complete care package, he's had the HDD replaced multiple times. The last time he sent in the laptop for serving they returned it with nothing fixed, they said they replaced the fans but the fans are still the original ones as I accidentally scratched the bottom side of the fans and they're the exact same one .....

Dell :: XPS 1330 Replaced For XPS1340.. Refuses To Replace HOT Charger

Oct 7, 2009

So to keep it as short as possible, I had many issues with my xps 1330 (it ahd the extended battery from start) and eventually ended up having the option to get the 1340 as my replacement of equal or better specs. I agreed and received a xps 1340.

First problem was that it did not come with the extended battery. I called and asked about it and they ended up sending me a replacement extended battery for the standard one.

On monday the 5th of october they received my old laptop (1330) and the transfer should of been done at that time. I was told the transfer will be done when my laptop is received, it hasn't .....

Sony :: Vaio FW490 Windows Vista 64 Refuses To Boot

Jul 20, 2009

I just recieved my Sony Vaio FW490 today. After uninstalling the trial version of Office 2007 (student version), windows refuses to boot normally. I tried several system resores without success.

Although it said that the restore worked properly, I kept rebooting to repair windows or vaio restore center or something like that. I finally called Sony tech support, and they walked me through restoring the C drive to its original state option

Hitting Fn and the Keyboard back light button will Cycle the settings, Off, Dim, Bright.

But they use to turn off after about a minute of no use. Now they will stay on indefinitely. I wonder what could be causing this since I have not done anything to the system.

When I set the Power options to have the Screen turn off after a Minute the screen dims and turns off, But the Keyboard remains Lit.

Acer :: Laptop Refuses To Detect Hard Drive With CD Drive In

Dec 28, 2009

Laptop is an Acer Aspire 1640. 2.26GHz, 2gb RAM.

Laptop was working fine with the factory Hitachi HTS541680J9AT00 80gb drive.

I purchased a Samsung HM160HC 160gb drive as it's supposed to be the fastest PATA laptop drive available.

I put it in and the laptop just kept saying "no operating system found" with the XP disk in the drive.

I tried several optical drives and got the same issue with all of them.

I then hooked a USB optical drive up and it wouldn't boot from it.

I removed the internal optical drive and the system then booted from the USB drive and loaded Windows fine.

I just assumed it was a fluke and once Windows was done loading I removed the USB drive, installed the factory internal optical again and turned it on...

"No operating system found".

This is where I'm stuck. If I remove the optical the system boots into Windows fine. There were no issues like this with the other hard drive.

I have tried setting the hard drive as Master, Slave, and Cable Select with no change.

Laptop has the newest BIOS.

Samsung does not offer firmware updates on their hard drives.

Dell :: Need To Install Vista Sp1 For Software.....can I Install With No Battery Detected?

Feb 25, 2009

I will try to make this short and understandable......

I bought a XPS M1330 iwth Vista Home Premium Bios A07 in January 2008.

April 2008 I tried to install updates and it messed up my Microsoft Office 2007 so I got it back working and did not mess with anymore updates.

Around June 2008 I started having the notorious battery issues. The battery ran down while I was on it and the battery has never worked since. At first it said connected,

but not charging but then it eventually died while I was trying to fix the problem and now it says battery not detected and it says the ac adapter is not recognized (I have the original AC adapter sent with the computer) .....

Acer :: Freezing - Tried To Install My Original Drivers And They Won't Install

Dec 7, 2009

I have had an aspire 5920g for about 18 months now and it was all working fine until I updated the graphic drivers, but the drivers stopped installing halfway through and now I can't install any graphic drivers.

I tried to install my original drivers and they won't install. The system keeps freezing and I think thats the problem.

I've tried making a recovery disc but erecovery won't recognize blank DVD's and acer 'support' are only too happy to grab you by your feet, turn you upside down and let all your money fall out so they can charge you for a reovery disc - absolutely ridiculous - instead of actually trying to help me.

And also for some reason a yellow triangle appeared next to the ACEYTS4Y IDE controller a week after I got it but up until now didn't seem to cause any problems.

HP/Compaq :: How Should I Install Windows 7

Oct 24, 2009

I have an HDX18t with an SSD partitioned for Vista and the Win7 RC. When I get my upgrade disc for Win 7, I'm considering installing it over the Win 7 RC partition and leaving the Vista partition in tact for now in case their are any problems with the install. I've read that you can do a clean install even with the upgrade disc. Is this a viable and/or advisable method?

HP/Compaq :: DV9548US Won't Install 7

Sep 15, 2009

When I boot off the DVD (doesn't matter if it's the MSDN RTM or the 90 day Enterprise trial, nor does 32 or 64 bit matter), it just hangs. It doesn't start Windows 7's setup process, doesn't give an error message, doesn't boot into Vista.

Also, potentially related, her laptop is running a hacked BIOS that removes the white list. (I stole her 4965N and put it in my MSI MS-1651. When I sold it off, I put the Atheros 5007EG from my NC10 in its place). I don't know if this would be the cause for it to hang, but given its lack of problem booting Vista, XP, Ubuntu, or Mint discs, I doubt it.

I'm getting a DV8000 on Wednesday that has a 3945ABG in it. I would like to, assuming the card is working (light's on, but Device Manager didn't see it, optical drive was busted so I couldn't boot into Linux at the time, hoping it's a software SNAFU), put it in her DV9548US and boot back to the official HP BIOS. Anyone know of any problems running a 3945ABG in the DV9500 series? I know it came in earlier DV9000s, so I hope the model would support it; with the fact that it's an HP card, I'm hoping that it will not throw white list errors as well.

(I'll be running a hacked BIOS on the DV8000 to run the Atheros 5007EG in it if all goes well.)

I've got the HP Pavilion dv5z laptop. I'd like to replace the stock drive with a Blu-Ray drive. There are a few on eBay floating around for the dv5. Has anyone done this before? I've got the dv5 manual and replacing the drive seems straightforward enough.

HP/Compaq :: HDX 16t Windows 7 Install

Apr 28, 2009

Just installed Windows 7 on my HDX16t. For the most part, everything is working great with minimal drivers install. Had to install the memory card reader, and a few others but worked fine with Vista drivers.

What I can't get working are the quick launch buttons. The mute works (although it doesn't change colors), the volume up and down works, The treble / Bass does NOT work, wifi works, and the media smart, stop, play, eject , etc do NOT work.

Anyone get these working with Windows 7? If so can you point me to the drivers and or process?

HP/Compaq :: Fresh Install DV4T

Feb 18, 2009

I just did a fresh install of Vista Home Premium 64 Bit following Orev's guide. I backed up the SWSetup folder and everything went fine except a couple of things:

1.) Quickplay. I don't have the QPW & HPQPDP folders in the SWSetup folder. Does quickplay still come with DV4T's or is HP using something new? Do I need to install some other program or driver from SWSetup to get quickplay to work? Should I not even worry about it and just another player?

2.) Recovery Partition. I followed a link in another post, here at NBR, to HP's site telling me how to add quickplay from the recovery partition of the hdd. I can see the recovery partition but when I try to access it, it says it's empty. Is it possible to access it through explorer or do I have to boot from it? When I did the fresh install, I just reformated partition 1, the one with vista on it already and did nothing to the recovery partition. Is this correct?

3.) Bluetooth. After I installed bluetooth and only after the internet connection is established, the icon pops up on the system tray even though I disabled it in the startup menu and told it in the bluetooth program itself not to display the icon. Also, when the computer first boots up, it tells me bluetooth couldn't connect because of a .dll file that is missing?

4.) Scroll Slider on Touchpad. I disabled alot of things in the startup menu and now the scroll slider doesn't work. Obviously it's because of the things I disabled, but why would disabling it from startup cause it not to work? The touchpad still works fine. I followed some things in this thread and everything here. Could any of this affect the scroll slider?

5.) Recovery Manager. What happened to the recovery manager that came factory installed? Is that in the SWSetup folder?

6.) Drivers. Should I follow this thread and update all the drivers since they are all new compared to what is in my SWSetup folder?

HP/Compaq :: Clean Install Gone Wrong

Apr 24, 2009

i recently tried to do a clean install of windows vista home premium on my hp laptop, but didn't notice that the windows anytime upgrade disc i had was from my other laptop, which is 32 bit, not the 64 bit i need. Fortunately I burned system recovery discs, but I cannot get them to work. What am I doing wrong here? Ideally I'd like to avoid having to order the disc I need from microsoft if at all possible, but I cannot think of any other options.

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 :: Fresh Install Of Windows 7

Apr 20, 2010

My new DV7t Quad should be coming on Friday. Right now it is stuck in China, but I was wondering. Would it be better to keep the Windows 7 that they have install on the computer, or should I do a clean install? Right now, I have Windows 7 Ultimate running my old laptop, however, I only the disk for the 32 bit. While my Quad will be a 64 bit.

So if it would be a benefit to do a clean install, could someone explain how to do it without having a new windows 7 disk. I did order the system restore disks from HP when I bought the computer.

HP/Compaq :: Install Windows 7 On HDX16T

Jan 14, 2009

I just tried doing this a couple days ago and at first it was working perfectly. About a day later when I came home from work and turned it on, it took about 3 minutes to load and I got all kinds of errors. Aero Glass was disabled, it told me that it couldn't initialize the "Windows Notification Service service", and all other manner of problems existed. I tried doing a system restore to a configuration that was about a day older, and that seemed to work the rest of the night. When I came home again the next day and started it up, the same problems were back.

I'm ready to do another reformat and reinstall, but I'm curious how everyone else is doing this (successfully). The method I used last time was to just let it install drivers for everything it found, then supplement what it couldn't find with drivers off the HP website. Unfortunately there are about 20 different HDX16 configs on there, so I'm not sure if I got the right one. Are the drivers different among them?

HP/Compaq :: Win7 Install/deletingpartition

Dec 8, 2009

I want to format.. and I like everything to be clean, like, really clean.

Never dealt with HP computers before so I want to be sure..

HP has a separate RECOVERY partition, so I made the 3 recovery discs and a backup of all the Driver folders. (C:/SwSetup)

I figure I could format and delete the additional partition. (make a bigger one later on)

Now that Ive inserted my Win7 DVD and I need to select a partition to install 7 on.. all of the sudden Windows sees 4 partitions in total:

Is it safe to carelessly delete every single one of 'm .. merging them into 1?

And later on creating another one being that I want 2 in total.
