HP/Compaq :: Microphone Jack Picking Up Radio Station

Jan 17, 2009

DV2400
Conexant audio w/ HD smartaudio HD2 driver
Cleared all cache, history, temp files...
ran several anti-virus, spyware programs to make sure this isn't a virus

Ok, this is how I noticed the problem. I plugged in my iphone earbuds w/ mic into the microphone jack in the front and used windows sound recorder to record voice. It didn't pick up much of my voice but it picked up a radio station. If i unplugged the earbuds and hit record again, it only pick up static noise. Has any of you experience this problem? Pretty sure this isn't a virus...just something our laptop does.

HP Pavilion Dv7 Audio :: External Microphone Not Picking Up Sound

Dec 27, 2014

I recently bought a product that works better with an external micorphone headset. This was my first time ever using one with my laptop. When I went through the set up process, the microphone was not picking up any sound and I could not hear anything through the external headset.  I tried using both the microphone and headset port as well as different headsets with the same result. The headsets work fine on other devices. When I use just a plain headset connected through the headset port, I can hear just fine. 

I went to Control Panel>Hardware and Sound>Sound>Manage Audio Devices to troubleshoot, but nothing worked. I tryed updating the latest drivers and was told the latest are already installed. 

The Product Name is : HP Pavilion dv7 Notebook PC
The Product # (NOT serial number) is : B5R46UA#ABA
The External Mic is called: IDT High Definition Audio CODEC

HP/Compaq :: Docking Station To Cure Power Jack

Feb 5, 2009

Like many others, the power jack in my HP zv5000 appears to be broken or faulty. When i had this problem on my Compact Presario, i bought a port replicator that had an excellect power jack. i had hoped the Targus universal docking station would do the same but am told it will not power the laptop. Anyone know of a docking station or port replicator for this model that will power the laptop? i am seriously not into paying over $100 to get it fixed only to have it happen again...as so many others have done.

i saw the quickdock on Hp site and asked them if it was compatible with the zv5000 series, but they still have not responded.

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: ThinkPad T520 Headphone Jack On Docking Station

Aug 7, 2012

I have a T520 thinkpad with a docking station.  I can get my headphones to work fine out of the laptop, but I would like to leave my headphones plugged into the headphone jack on the dock itself.  The computer doesn't seem to recognize this jack is even there.  My only sound options are the laptop speakers and the audio jack on the right side of the laptop.
 
How to enable the audio jack on the back of the dock?

Apple :: Loud HD Click Sound When Picking Up Laptop While On

Jan 3, 2010

When the laptop is on and I pick it up to move it I would often hear a loud CLICK sound coming from the HD. It had me freaked out that something was loose or that the heads were scratching the platters.

I just came across an article explaining what this noise has been. It is the sound of the read/write heads parking because of the "Sudden Motion Sensor" built into the laptop. It senses the rapid movement when I pick up the laptop and then it parks the heads to prevent scratching the platters... that is the click sound of the heads parking.

The sensor is a tri-axis accelerometer that detects sudden changes in "position and accelerated movement".

Anyways, I tested this to see if it was the "sudden motion sensor" parking the heads:
- first I confirmed that the sound would still occur when picking up the laptop and tilting it quickly while still on
- then I checked the sensor's settings to see if it was really on by running a command I found in the linked article.
- then I turned off the sensor (that command is also in the article).
- then I tested by picking up the laptop again and tilting it quickly...

no more CLICK

I enabled the sensor again because it is better to have it enabled than to risk scratching a platter if I drop the laptop. I'm just happy to have found the source of the CLICK and to know it wasn't a faulty HDD.

Here is the article:

HP/Compaq :: Is Yourdv5t Power Jack Loose

Jan 30, 2009

I just bought a brand spankin new HP dv5t series, got it 3 days ago, i inspected it when i got it out of the box and it was beautiful.

However a little later I noticed that the power (cord side) that you plug in to charge was pretty loose.

Now just today I tripped on the long part of the cord... it moved the laptops position on the desk a few inches, and enough to pull it out of the box in the middle of the cord, and it feels even loser.. but I cant tell if it really did, i might just be paranoid.

This worries me because on my last two laptops they were pretty tight and had no play in them, both of the ended up broken.

HP/Compaq :: DV9930US Internal Microphone Not Working

Jan 14, 2010

I have an HP DV9930US, and the internal/built-in microphone (actually, I think there are suppose to be two, surrounding the webcam at the top of the display) is not working. When I try it, I get no input, e.g., with Sound Recorder, I just get "noise".

I've tried this with the original Vista Home Premium 64-bit, Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit, and Windows 2003 (I multi-boot), and I've tried every possible driver (including both the ones from HP and the direct Realtek ones) and setting that I can find, but no success ...

I haven't had a need for using the mic, so I don't think that I had tried it when I originally got the laptop, so I don't know if it ever worked...

I've partially disassembled the laptop, and confirmed that the microphone connector that goes from the display to the small (~1" x 1") board is properly connected. I haven't opened up the display bezel to check what's going on there.

Also, if I plug an external microphone into the jack at the front of the laptop, that does work.

Does anyone have a DV9930US, or something in the same series, and if so, does your internal microphone work? Did you have to do something "special" to get it to work?

HP/Compaq :: HP Mini Docking Station

Feb 19, 2009

HP is going to make a docking station for the HP mini 1000. I guess that port on the mini is an expansion port and not displayport. Looks cool. Guess it makes up for all the missing ports on the mini.

HP/Compaq :: HP ZD7000 Series Laptop -- Will Not Pass Initial Boot Screen After AC Jack Repair

Aug 26, 2009

I am trying to repair a ZD7000 series laptop. The initial problem was that it had a broken AC Jack. I got a new AC jack and soldered that in. While I was at it, I also got a 3.2GHz P4 out of another laptop to replace the one that was in this laptop.

Now the laptop does not pass the boot screen. It will just display the HP splash page, then reboot. No BIOS beeps. It does this on both AC power and battery.

I have tried different ram as well, with no luck.

Dell :: M6400 Wireless Radio Shut Down

Nov 29, 2009

This morning when I turned the M6400 on, my wireless had shut down, showing a X on the tray icon.

It has been working fine under my Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit for weeks, since I used the free upgrade I got from the Microsoft Windows 7 demo. The Intel 5300 was fine in device manager.

When I ran the Intel ProSet Wireless diagnostics, it said that the Radio is Switched Off. The driver is the latest Intel 13.0.0 version for Windows 7 64bit.

I called Dell Business Support and the tech spent an hour uninstalling and reinstalling the driver, reinstalling the ProSet utilities and trying to find a way to get the radio to switch on.

He tried to uninstall the Intel generic driver and install the older Dell driver, but apparently could not get the Intel to uninstall, so the installation of the older driver kept failing.

Sony :: Hardware Radio Switch On VGN-FW270J

Nov 27, 2009

The wireless switch doesn't work; indication light won't turn on. Tried Smartwifi, kept prompting me to turn on the hardware switch. This also measn I can't use the bluetooth. Spoke with sony support for hours and all they could tell me is to send it for repair. I'm out of warranty. Device manager doesnt report any problem with the driver. I updated the bios. I restored settings to factory default. Nothing worked.

I decided to open it up to see if i can replace the wifi board myself. But when i did get into the motherboard, it seems the wifi is internal and the hardware radio switch is broken. I checked out other motherboard photos with the same model and i noticed that there should be a tiny piece of plastic sticking out near the wifi part, next to the sd card slot.

Has anyone ever successfully or "magically" able to physically turn on a broken wireless hardware switch? Is there any software switch to bypass the hardware?

Lenovo Z50-70 P/Y/Z Series :: Wireless - Hardware Radio Off

Sep 24, 2014

I have a Lenovo IdeaPad Z50-70 and since almost 2 days i'm seeing that my wireless connections are not working/appear. Till about 2 days ago all worked fine. It says 'hardware radio off', i looked on google but nothing come up yet, i tried to "Reset PROSet" but still, after the reset it's the same problem.  There isn't such a big problem, because i use an internet cable and all works fine, yet because it's a laptop i want to buy a router so there's the problem, i can buy it but won't work... as wireless. 
 
How can i fix that? How to turn hardware radio ON? Is there a button or a key combo?

Lenovo ThinkPad L R/SL :: L520 - Bluetooth Radio Does Not Work On Windows 8.1

Sep 10, 2014

I have updated some months ago, my laptop 7859-5SG from Windows 7 to Windows 8 -> 8.1 and after that the bluetooth radio doesn't work anymore.

I tried to find a driver on the driver download section for my laptop, but I didn't find nothing. First problem found, is the hotkey fn+F5 that not show nothing on the display after key press, and normally with this function I can see if the radio is on or off.

I checked on the BIOS section if bluetooth is enable, and this is on. What I can do to activate bluetooth radio again?

Dell Studio 1458 :: Wireless Network Connection Radio Disabled

Jan 8, 2013

My laptop was working fine this morning. I took a nap and when I went to use the computer again, it can't find the wireless network. The network icon in the system tray is all gray bars with a red X through them. When I hover over it, the pop up says, "Wireless Network Connection Radio Disabled." Only two things could have changed: my daughter might have used the computer (using a non-administrator account) and Comcast cable might have gone out.

I'm using:

Studio 1458
Windows 7 Home Premium x64
Version 6.1.7601
Dell (Broadcom) Wireless 1520 Wireless-N WLAN Mini-Card
Netgear wireless router, Windows Firewall, Avast free anti-virus (have been using all three for years)

This is what I've tried:

-Verified that cable TV and phone are still working.
-Reset modem and then router then restarted laptop. (This is what I do any time the cable goes out and it usually works.)
-Verified that iPad and iPhone can see network and use it.
-Plugged laptop in through router and can see and use network.

Therefore it has to do with the wireless.

-In Network and Sharing Center, clicked set up a new connection or network and selected connect to the Internet > wireless. No connections available.
-Checked system restore to see if there's a restore point recently that would indicate my kid installed something. (Child of course denies using computer. ) Last restore point was Windows update five days ago.
-Restarted in safe mode, was unable to see wireless network.
-Verified that Device Manager sees wireless adaptor and says it is working.
-Deleted and reinstalled driver in safe mode.
-Deleted and reinstalled driver from latest downloaded version. This also deleted all existing network connections listed under manage wireless networks.
-Turned off wireless phones.
-Disabled LAN adaptor and retried all of the above.
-Tried FN F2 which pulls up an image of two radio towers. The one on the right, that looks like it's a tower without a signal, is highlighted and has a circle with a slash through it over top of it.
-Ran through troubleshooter numerous times.
-Restarted computer numerous times during this testing.
-Went into Windows Mobility Center to turn wireless on but button is grayed out.

In Windows Mobility Center clicked on "launch" under radio control options and selected All the Radios (WiFi was the only one not grayed out).

In Windows Mobility Center, found that the above was still an option so it appears WMC doesn't see that they're turned on.

-Updated the firmware on wireless router.
-Update driver for Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adaptor
-Manually added wireless network through Network and Sharing Center.
-Verified my antivirus software is working and is up to date.
-Changed security options on router so there was no security. (Of course changed it back.)

How to update the firmware on the wireless adaptor card if there is any.

I still have a gray wireless network connection icon in the system tray with a red X through it. The pop up still says wireless network connection radio disabled. I am unable to connect to the Interenet through the wireless, even in safe mode. This is my work computer (I own my own business) and in order to use the wired connection I have to sit on the floor in a corner. It's very inconvenient, not to mention uncomfortable. (My child does not usually have access to my computer but our home computer is down and I let her use it a few days ago and forgot to turn off the guest account.

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: T420s Wireless Radio Button Doesn't Switch On / Broken

Dec 18, 2014

I have a Lenovo t420s with dualboot win7 and Ubuntu. I never had any problems until now and could switch on/off my wireless and bluetooth connections via the Hardware Switch (right bottom left of the notebook) or via FN + F5.

However, without any specific reason the wireless and bluetooth was switched off and the the system tells me that I have to switch on WIFI via the Wireless Radio Switch. However, although I can move it, it doesn't make any difference for the Switch.
 
I tried to reset the BIOS to Default and changed the network settings, and also rebooted several times. I won't work with any of the two systems.

Apple :: Is The 13 MBP's Audio Jack Both In/out

Basically what the thread's topic is. Is the audio jack both in and out?

"ifixit.com" boldly states: "The addition of an SD card slot (and the omission of digital/mic port) is readily apparent."

Omission = completely left out or integrated into the audio in port?

Acer :: 6920G Will NOT Take A Microphone

Jan 9, 2009

No matter what I do it will not take a microphone. The mic is working, I plugged it into an amp. It can't be the connector as I just got a new one today and tried it on the Aux input of a headphone amp.

This is absolutely ridiculous. I remember having this trouble before. I can't even seen to access "line in" as an option when recording anymore either. What's going on? I need to record some stuff and I can't use the crappy in built mic for that.
