I am having a very hard time getting Windows XP to install I have even downloaded the ata sata drivers for my hard drive! I used Nlite to mod the disk and add the drivers, I also tried loading the drivers via floppy drive and still no luck I keep getting the blue screen of death any ideas? Also I need to know how to fix the settings so I can install MAC OS Snow Leopard on it! I am currently running Bios That was just updated on April 19, 2010 !
The volume control bar disappeared from the screen. The speaker icon is present on the taskbar. The volume control touch key are operational. But no bar is visible. The notebook is a HP 6910P running on XP pro, clean from viruses and malware.
I have just installed a OS on my new acer 4420- (came with no os or recovery features).........It doesn't even recognize the wifi..........What do I need to do in this situation? I need to get it online to download drivers.
The only "recovery" cd's I have will not run. They are .ISO files or something..... Someone help a noob out.........
I do have a portable usb zip drive, but I can't figure out how to transfer files from one computer to the other, and then open and run them.
Is there any modded bios available with some advanced "oc" features. I am trying to undervolt cpu from bios, shut down one core, slow down clock, change fan from silent to normal mode... etc... (This wouldn't be too much to ask from regular desktop board)
Until I boot and start windows my cpu is already too hot. (my notebook is ok, just cpu was upgraded and it's overheats a bit.)
Does this original bios has some secret menus to tweak those settings ?
I got my 1647 from FEDEX and so far everything seems to be good. There is a slight wobble from underneath the battery but I guess that's fine.
The laptop doesn't get as hot as fast and the RGBLED screen is a great screen. WLED seems so washed out and dull so the [over]saturated colors are welcome here.
Anyway on to the point: I've done a clean install of Windows 7 Home Premium on my laptop, I installed all the drivers, did Windows update to let it be fully updated, installed the latest graphic drivers (10.3a), and of course installed the latest BIOS from Dell (A05) .....
I have had a problem with my IdeaPad U310 for quite a while now (about a year), the problem is the touchpad, it work all the time, but the features of the touchpad, such as two-finger-scrolling and features like that, stop working everytime I open a Microsoft Office program.
It works fine again when the computer has been restarted, but as soon as a Microsoft program has been opened the problem is there again.
I have tried to solve it as described under the topic: "IdeaPad U310, U410, U510 - Touchpad stops responding while using Microsoft Office", but the problem is the same.
For quite a while my GF has nagged me for a "nice laptop", i.e. a MacBook. With the new models out, the old ones (just before the latest one-piece-thingies) should be easier to find. Most of her friends have one and I am soon getting my bonus, so starting to shop around.
Myself, I am a ThinkPad evangelist (those "ugly, square, black things" according to my GF), and have no trouble picking a used one. With Macs I am basically into uncharted territory, hense my post.
1) I am concerned if the previous owner has enabled features that would interfere with our privacy - remote activation of camera, remote access, etc. How can I check this and make sure she will not participate in some amateur BigBrother?
2) What should I check on a 13 inch MacBook except the obvious battery, fan noise, scratches and dirt beyond normal?
3) Does the Mac have BIOS, drivers, etc. I should upgrade before I hand it to her?
I am talking about the pack that's in between the laptop plug and the sock plug. I'm sitting about a foot away from it and I can hear a little buzzing, plus it is hot to touch (I can touch it for a few seconds though).
I have this laptop Dv7-1110eg.... Vista Ultimate 64bit
Just buy, the video card did not work ... was a hardware problem ... HP came to seek the ... did little more than 10 days ... HP has returned to me the laptop ... and now everything works perfectly, minus the touch volume controls... the play, stop, and other ... activating and deactivating the wireless network...
If turns the volume on the taskbar touch control changes color ... that works, but fingers (touching it) does not work ... Deploying the volume bar in the taskbar and click on the volume control Touch ... volume bar is moved a few millimeters, but always returns to the same place
HP has changed my motherboard for the problem of video ... if I remember that before the touch controls worked lead to perfection ...
Just as I returned the touch controls not working ... trying to solve the problem .... I installed Vista Ultimate 64bit and I downloaded all the drivers here [url] I have installed all ... even update the bios ... touch controls do not work
I think I accidentally turned off the volume bar on my laptop and I'm not sure how to turn it back on. sound does work I have to manually adjust it using the volume icon and all the lights are on. I can't even turn on/off my wireless button.
if there was a way to turn off the touch-strip at the top of the 8510 - or, better yet, an individual "button". The problem is, when I move my laptop around, I sometimes brush one of the touch-sensitive buttons.
At times I've been wondering why my wireless wasn't working and, after trying various things, finally realised I'd accidentally hit the little blue antenna button on the touch-strip...
If I can turn the entire thing off, that would be great.. is there a service or something that monitors it which I can turn off?
Anyways, can you disable the touch sensitive controls above the keyboard on this laptop? I have to use the F1-F10 buttons very often in an online game I play, and sometimes accidentally slide a finger over the WiFi touch sensitive button which immediately disables my internet connection so I get disconnected from my game. Very annoying if you have been playing for a while and accidentally touch that thing without being able to get to a save zone.
As for the other buttons besides the WiFi one, if I accidentally touch those, my game gets minimized and I have to wait for the HP Info Center window to load up before I can get back into my game, which by that time my character is already dead.
I looked around sites found with google and couldn't find anything. I never use the touch sensitive buttons besides the volume one (which is rarely used too and could do without if getting rid of the WiFi touch sensitive button means getting rid of all the touch sensitive buttons).
After I got it back I reinstalled windows (Vista Ultimate 64bit) and after a week it crashed with the blue screen at boot (error 7E). I could not come into windows (not even in safe mode or system restore), so I brought it back to HP.
They did not find any hardware failures with the tests. They EVEN tried installing winXP on some other disk and while everything worked fine they made a conclusion that the laptop is ok. And I was just advised to reinstall OS.
Did that and after 2 days some new troubles appeared.
The "mouse" was clicking randomly (mostly with right button) and the current program (window) stopped being active.
I thought it was a virus (avira did not find anything), so I did another clean install (this time win7 32bit) - same thing. Went back to Vista 64 (with restore dvds made before the troubles began).
I tried disabling mouse, touch pad and touch styk - the mouse works normally when having touch styk disabled.
Now Vista is changing my Power Schemes sometimes (from HP Optimized to High performance and back for a few times).
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.
I need to tunr off or remove my wifi touch button from my dv8t. I have spent the last month searching, removing, reinstalling, and skrewing with this laptop to get it off. nothing works. At the moment, my wifi turns itself on and off 28 time a minute on average.
I have already installed the keyboard driver that doesnt have the hp QLB on it. I have also removed the quick launch button drivers.... im at a loss now.
Are both needed for the volume and mute keys to work as well as play/paul skip etc? I am running into an issue on bootup where something sort of drags and I think its the software that goes with these buttons. If I try to use the system to early I can crash explorer. I was able to do this on two brand new laptops. Or would I be better installing the lastest Sound driver, quick touch?
I opened up iTunes today and while you are inside it, the touch buttons at the top of the Studio XPS 16 work fine but if you are in firefox, desktop or anywhere else they do not seem to control the music at all? Is there a way to fix this?
