HP/Compaq :: Installing Windows XP And Enabling Native Sata ForPavillion Dv2100

Jan 27, 2010

installing Windows XP on my HP Pavillion Dv2100. Windows could load with Native Sata disabled but when I try to enable it, it gives me a BSOD during the Windows loading screen. I tried doing the steps on [url] and it still doesnt work.

I also tried reinstalling Windows with Native Sata enabled but it says Windows cannot detect a hard disk. Tried reinstalling using a Flash Drive with Windows installed using WinToFlash and it said "Ntldr is missing".

HP/Compaq :: Native Sata Support

Jan 31, 2009

I have an HP dv9000 laptop.

It came with Windows Vista, at one point I was dual-booting Vista/XP, and I am currently using Windows 7beta.

I recently went in my bios settings and tried to enable native sata support, and after that, my computer wouldn't go into Win7, until i disabled it again.

It was enabled when i first got my computer, and i had to disable it for XP compatibility. I figure, if it works with Vista, there's no reason it wouldnt work with Win7. Perhaps it's configured to run without the setting, so enabling it effs it up and confuses it. is there any way i can enable it again, preferably without having to do a full OS install?

Dell :: Installing SATA Hard Drive (Inspiron 1720)

Jul 19, 2007

I purchased SATA 7200 RPM hard drive from newegg.com


My notebook is the brand-new Inspiron 1720 which only supports SATA.

The problem is that the hard drive didn't come with a "connector" (or "gender changer" or whatever... I don't what's this thing called).

So, I am unable to connect the hard drive to my notebook. I contacted newegg.com and they said it doesn't come with the connector.

Anyone know where I can get this connector?

I tried googling like "SATA connector 2.5-inch drive", but I cannot find any information.... Also, what's this thing called exactly?

Dell Latitude E6400 :: Windows 7 Doesn't Detect Native Resolution Correctly?

Feb 15, 2013

So I just had Windows 7 reinstalled as my harddrive died. But after the reinstall, Windows 7 only detects my laptops native resolution (recommended resolution) as 1280x800.

I know this laptop has the 1440x900 display, I have coworkers with the same laptop and their display shows the "recommended" is 1440x900, and I know that was the case before I lost my drive and got a new one with a reinstall.

This laptop has the NVIDIA Quadro NVS 160M adapter, and I have the latest driver for this from NVIDIA.

Why does windows think my native resolution is 1280x800. I can use the NVIDIA driver to force it to go to 1440x900, which works. I was just wondering why it is doing this. Is there some inf package that I need from Dell?

HP/Compaq :: DVD Drive Connected To Laptop With Sata To Esata Cable, Drive Is Not Recognized By Windows 7

Feb 22, 2010

I connected a dvd drive to my laptop using, a sata to esata cable. my laptop has a ESATA port.

I don't know if you should post some kind of config summary (if yes let me know, I will do it promptly) basically I have a HP DV6t quad edition with an Intel 5 serie chipset,
PM55 express chipset (dont really know if it make any sense but still, I will just say state it) so I installed Intel Matrix Storage and when I connect the drive I can see it, but windows 7 does not see it, it's like I didn't plug anything in. [url] also my bios is almost configurable, I don't know why I can change the time, the date, the admin password, the boot order, virtualization, fan on/off that's pretty much it. so what options do I have if I want to make this dvd drive work?

HP/Compaq :: Enabling Write Caching On Western Digital Scorpio HD

Jan 6, 2009

I have an HP DV2700 laptop (core 2 duo T5450 @1.66Ghz, 2GB of ram with vista home premium 32-bit).

I have a Western digital scorpio 250GB HD at 5400 rpm (WDC WD2500BEVS) and I am having some trouble enabling the write catching (and in extension, advanced performance mode.) I have tried accessing device manager and selecting 'enable write caching on the disk' however the policy does not persist once i apply the change. Despite my disappointment, this was to be expected since the comment 'this device does not allow its write cache setting to be modified' can be seen underneath the option. Being a tweaker of sorts with regards to vista, I was certain there is a way to allow such modifications to take place.

As an aside, I wanted to know whether enabling these policies would decrease spin up time? More specifically, decrease the amount of heat emitted from the hard drive. Of those who own DV laptops, this is an understandable request, seeing as the base of the laptop, under stress, becomes uncomfortably hot.

HP Compaq Presario CQ56-112SA OS/Software :: Installing Ubuntu Alongside Windows 7

Aug 7, 2011

I have a HP Compaq Presario CQ56-112SA Notebook which has WIndows 7 Home Edition OS. I would like very much to install Ubuntu 12.04 OS on its own partition to dual boot with Windows. However, my understanding is that the Notebook has 4 primary partitions on the HDD that are already used and therefore no more partitions can be made. I can shrink the 'C' drive partition to make space but I understand I also have to free up a whole partition. I know I can install Ubuntu 'Inside' Windows but I would rather not.
Some contributors say one can safely delete HP-Tools to provide a partition for Ubuntu but others advise not to because HP-Tools contains a BIOS recovery kit which, they say,  is essential.

Sony :: SZ160p Sata 1 Or Sata 2

Mar 9, 2010

Has anyone installed a SSD drive in this model with success? If so, does the BIOS need to be upgraded? I have a Vertex 120 SSD drive I'm not using and am thinking about putting it in the Sony and installing Win 7/32 bit.

I would like for all the current functions to work such as the camera and video card. Would this be a big issue or should I just reload the original OS(XP).

Dell :: XPS M1530: SATA Drivers For Windows XP Installation

After reading Its OFFICIAL! Windows XP works perfectly on the XPS m1330!, I've decided to install XP on my M1530, but i'm unsure on what to do about step 1:

"Step 1... You need a version of Windows XP SP2 with built-in SATA drivers... I personally used LastXP (feel free to go find this on a torrent site somewhere,

you have the option to install one of your own valid XP keys as part of its setup). (The other way is to put SATA drivers on a USB stick and hit F6 during initial Windows setup...) .....

HP/Compaq :: PATA Or SATA Blu-Ray DVD Drive

Mar 11, 2009

I am having problems with some Blu-Ray DVDs in my DV9774ca with a optiarc BC-5500A ATA.
When I put some Blu-Ray DVDs in the drive starts to spin and makes the normal searching noises for 30 seconds and then it stops without doing anything at all.

I decided to try download a firmware update, but the site says not to flash SATA drives with PATA firmware.

How can I find out what it is? I can only assume its SATA. The firmware I found is for PATA!

Also I assume that the firmware I already have is older than the downloadable version (not from H.P.). The downloadable version is 1.05 from November/08. I bought my laptop in Feb/08.

HP/Compaq :: Trying To Install Xp Over Vista No Sata Option

I have gone into the bios to disable the SATA but there is no option to do so. I do have a external floppy to use. I thought I was computer savy but am feeling kinda dumb. Should I start with a flash? What model am I actually working on, 2000 or 2500.
