HP/Compaq :: New Dv7 Owner And Laptop Cooler Choices

Jan 16, 2010

I recently got a dv7 (17.3") and I've been looking around for a good notebook cooler. The current cooler is not for this size and was wondering for any options available out there.

I've heard of the the Zalman-NC2000 but I'd have to "reposition" it to use it's capabilities. My next option would be the "NZXT Cryo LX". I am considering getting this one but would like to have other alternatives before I commit to it.

I use this laptop for gaming and photo/video editing so portability would be a plus.

Also, any good messenger bags for my lappy? I'll need space for my cooler and wacom tablet. I've been looking around for a long time as this and some were just a tad "tight" fitting in.

HP/Compaq :: Laptop Cooler Fordv5t

Jun 27, 2009

my old crappy targus cooler broke for my hp dv5t and I am looking for a new one. My HP gets very hot, and I am especially worried about the cpu. Even with max undervolting it still gets to 65-75 quite often.

Since I do not know much about which cooler would be best for my hp, I was wondering what cooler you use/recommend for this computer. Also I was wondering if the Zalman 1000 would be big enough for the hp dv5t 15.4 inch, to cool the gpu and cpu or should i be springing for the 2000 in case i decide to go zalman.

HP/Compaq :: HP DV7t-2000 Laptop Cooler

Apr 11, 2009

a laptop cooler for the HP DV7t-2000 (17.3" widescreen, approx. important dimmensions 16.2"x10.9"). The laptop does not really get all that hot (except when I am playing games), but I just want to get a cooler so that I can keep the laptop in perfect condition. I want this laptop to stay in the best shape possible for as long as possible.

Right now, I have just been propping the back using some video game cases. But I want something that is a little bit more reliable and powerful.

When the notebook is in use, the vent is at the top left corner. When flipped over so that it is upside down (as is shown in the picture below), the vent is in the top right. Any suggestions that would fit this configuration (I hope it was clear, just wanted to be precise )?

HP/Compaq :: Laptop Cooler For 17"dv9000 Series

Feb 18, 2009

The back of the dv9000 has some slits for airflow, and there are also slits on the bottom of the unit. Because the airflow is so weak, I can't detect by feel which way the air is actually flowing.

Does air enter from the bottom and get exhausted out the back? Or Does air enter from the back and get exhausted out the bottom?

My as-yet-to-be-made cooler's fans will be mounted below the slits on the bottom of the notebook. Therefore, it's important to know if the fans should blow air onto the bottom of the notebook or if they should pull air away from the bottom of the notebook. This is crucial because if the cooler's fans are installed blowing air in the wrong direction, they could actually force hot air back into the notebook!

Dell :: Down To 2 Choices For My Laptop Upgrade

Nov 28, 2009

I'm upgrading my XPS m1530 CPU, i figured I'd post in this section.

Anyhow currently I'm running the t5750, 2000MHz dual core, with 2mb cache.

Ive got 2 choices for my upgrade (and I know they both will work for sure in the XPS m1530 as I've asked around) and here they are:

The T8300 with 2.4GHz dual core and 3mb cache and 800 bus speed, or
The T9500 with 2.6GHz dual core and 6mb cache and 800 bus speed.

Since I'm in Canada, the only good prices i can find are on eBay (otherwise I'm buying via Canadian newegg and whatnot, and they charge A-LOT for Canadians because of import and CAD currency exchanges).

The T8300 is listed at 173.56 CAD with +25$ Australian for shipping, which ends up being around 24 ish CAD, which means I'm paying roughly 200$ CAD for it.

The t9500 is listed at 253.56 CAD with free shipping to Canada.

In the end, my question is this: is the +0.2GHz/core and the 3mb extra cache worth the 50$ (considering the t9500 can go upwards of 350 on newegg Canadian, or rather used to, its not even listed there anymore). Although it may not be worth the straight upgrade, it may be worth the time i'll put off upgrading or buying a new laptop. What are your opinions?

the t9500 expires in 9 hours, and although I've been tracking the user since September, hes always re-posted the listing, but I don't know if the price will change a lot (its gone up 10$ since the previous re-post) so speedy answers would be .

HP/Compaq :: Clarify Battery Choices

I know the 9 cell sticks out - it's also supposed to last 7 hours. What about the 6 cells? How long does each last because I am not sure if I want the 9, high capacity 6 or the option of getting both...

I got the P7535 and integrated graphics.

HP/Compaq :: New3510nr Owner

Apr 17, 2009

After researching a portable laptop with good battery life, and fast processer speed I choose the best buys blue label 3510nr laptop. The screen was gorgeous, and I bought it to get adapted to vista. One the volume of the speakers is clear for a laptop this size inside windows looking at videos or playing music baqck but strangely enough when viewing DVD movies the volume is very quiet. When the computer first started a DVD is went from 0 to ffering several numbers for US language and it plays in US mode but I wonder what this was. Also my movies downloaded from utube and various sources throughout the years ran fine on XP and xp PRO but 50% only will play in AVI not the movie in windows media player. Also I am perplexed at how strange the new Media player is compared with earleir versions that ran under XP. Waht can I do about seeing my movies, and possibly whats up with the sound as Ive checked all settings in control panel. Im scared to even call HP as their customer service horribible.

HP/Compaq :: NewDV7 Owner Fresh Install

Jan 29, 2009

just picked up a new DV7-1270ca and did a clean install to Vista Ultimate 64B. I noticed that a few of the apps that were on the machine are missing and can't be downloaded? Can anyone tell me where to find these apps? I did make a set of recovery disks prior to deleting the recovery partition but they don't seem to contain files that are accessible unless one does a complete recovery...which kind of defeats the whole purpose of my intentions.

I notice that i don't have the control panel for my sound anymore. Not sure if this is related but i think since i can't individually configure my speakers without this application i notice some crackling sounds in movies i play which i am assuming to be because the subwoofer is set too high?

I am also missing complete functionality of the keys that reside directly above my keyboard. The keys work, but i notice i no longer see a visual screen confimation and get the clicking sound when i access them? The mute button should also turn amber when i mute the machine but it no longer does. I did check HP support but the only file they had was HP MediaSmart SmartMenu Update which is only an update according to the Readme. It states that i must first have HP MediaSmart SmartMenu installed for the update to work but HP does not supply a download link for this utility?

There are also a few other apps that i can't remember the name of that are missing i know.

Has anyone else done a clean installation?

HP/Compaq :: How Is AnEliteBook Mobile Workstation Going To Feel For A ThinkPad Owner

May 13, 2010

I really like the new EliteBook 8450w and 8470w and I think it is time to replace my Thinkpad W500. Can anyone clue me in on how my experience might be different? I know plenty of people with consumer HP laptops but I don't expect it should be anything like that.

How is the noise (my Thinkpad is very quiet)?

How is the "feel"? The plastic body on my Thinkpad makes it feel cheep for what it is.

How are the hinges?

How is the keyboard? I absolutely love that they fit a num pad in the 15"

How is the trackpoint?

HP/Compaq :: Fan Cooler For Dv7t?

May 25, 2009

I have a HP DV7t. The Specs of the notebook are in my sig.

Do you think I should get a cooling fan?

My computer runs great with no problems but I notice that it can get somewhat hot at times when I'm gaming. I don't play games too often and I mostly browse the web, but I play games on occasion.

The pic above is using HWMonitor. The max temps were reached while I was playing StarCraft.

Do you think those temps are too high for playing StarCraft? I have my computer slightly elevated in the back but wanted to know if you think I should get a fan such as the Zalman? What fan is recommended for HP laptops?

HP/Compaq :: Cooler Recommend For Dv7

Jan 8, 2009

This thing gets up to 81 degs C. Only 3 vents on the bottom and hot air blows out the back. the rear vent is actually a crappy design as it is partially blocked because the laptop has no feet for elevation.

here's a pic of the bottom borrowed from another thread. the dv7 is on the left:

I haven't a clue which way the air flows on this thing.

I'm thinking of the Zalman 2000 or the NZXT Cryo cooler series

the other problem is i use the laptop on my lap with knees up. I have to cross my legs without a cooler to keep that rear exhaust fan clear. I need a cooler that won't block that fan.

does anyone have a cooler that gives good performance with the dv7?

I've read the reviews and cooling central. not real helpful, b/c i as i said, i haven't a clue about the air flow on this.

HP/Compaq :: DV5T Cooler

Feb 26, 2009

i've been looking around, as much as I hate buying devices for things that are already built into my computer, my HP dv5t just heats up way too much. (even with the back raised.) So now, the question is, which cooler to get?

i kind of like this one here:

However, most reviews, and from what i've seen on this forum say to get this guy:

what is the advantage of this Zalman cooler? am i right in saying that i should technically go with the Nzxt (out of these two) because it has the vents in the rear, which would help my dv5t's cooling system? or no?

HP/Compaq :: Hp 6715b Take Apart, Clean The Cooler

Jan 2, 2009

I have my Compaq 6715b for already a year and a few months more. These few months have made been a nightmare with the dying chargers and extreme heating it produces.

I have started using Linux on it and after a successful installation the first original charger died. Some time ago already it started overheating and since the output of the cooler is less than a centimeter away from the power input (great architecture!) I suspect this heat has something to do with the instability of the power supply.

Later on I have tried 3 different universal chargers which all could not properly feed it with energy and in the end I had them replaced with a new original part. Since then I have been working without the battery because it became very unreliable and short-living.

My main concern now is that this new charger is also going to die off because of the heat it is now constantly exposed to. I have tried to take the cooler out, inspired by a friend who has a very similar but newer model of compaq and it turned out impossible to take out the last screw holding the cooler because it is hidden deep under the plastic.

something about the heating problem of the 6715b or even better - how to get the cooler out?

HP/Compaq :: Distance From Fans On A Cooler

Nov 23, 2009

i built my own laptop cooler. Now my base was a stackable file organizer, so there were these tabs that stuck out. I normally would just rest my laptop on top of those tabs, with about half a cm distance between the mesh and the laptop. This weekend i got fed up with the slight wobble i would get using the tabs, so i pryed them out a bit so my dv5t would sit flush with the mesh, and WOW what a difference in temperatures! for once my hard drive is hotter than my gfx card! my gfx card max after playing codmw2 for about 2 hours was 57

HP/Compaq :: DV4T Cooler - Busted

Apr 17, 2009

I bought a DV4T (T5800) during black Friday last November. Lately it is unstable. The GPU randomly crashes and the fan is louder than when I first bought it. When I put my hand near the fan outlet it doesn't seem to be moving much air even at high speeds.

So I decided to try undervolting. In the process of undervolting I found out that the CPU is hitting its thermal barrier when I run a prime95 torture test (in place FFT's). It hits 85C and the thermal throttling kicks in. This is AFTER I lowered the voltage mind you.

I am just looking for confirmation of my suspicions. I emailed HP tech support, do you think they will give me a hard time with an RMA?

Anyone else have probs with their DV4T and heat?

Dell :: M6400 Processor Choices

Jan 9, 2009

I'm trying to decide which processor and OS (Vista 32 or 64) to go with. The quad cores are 2.5Ghz I believe, and I just haven't seen anything showing an advantage for quad cores outside of 3D rendering applications. Anyone have some good hard information on this? For my personal situation, I plan to use the notebook for the following:

App Dev using Visual Studio 08, SQL 05 & 08, Expression
Design/Illustration/Photo using CS3 tools, eventually CS4, Lightroom, rare 3D in Blender.
Gaming to include Farcry, WoW, Neverwinternights, others?

Right now it seems that the quad core will draw more power for almost no performance increase, and in some cases it will perform *worse* than the core duo at a higher clock (say, T9600). I'm not sure how far into the future it will be before a 2.5ghz quad can outperform a 2.8ghz duo in most use cases? Anyone?

On the OS, how are people feeling about 64bit? For all my day to day involvement in the "latest and greatest" in software dev, I still haven't made the move to 64bit.

TIA, and would this question be better in a different forum?

Dell :: What Happened To And It's Quality/choices

Oct 24, 2008

I got to build a Dell comptuer. I have almsot no choice but for ram and processor.

Every model has only one choice for GPU. Why? It use to be you could build a computer you wanted. Now if you want dedicated GPU you have to go to a Studio and pay 200 bucks more? And if you want a non-suck GPU you have to go to a XPS and pay another 200 bucks.

What happened to modability.. what happened to choice and quality at Dell?

I got to HP and i can choose to get integrated graphics or upgrade to dedicated... why did Dell move away from this? And move into ... if you want this upgrade to a new model and pay 4 times more...

Dell :: XPS M1530 Hard Drive And LCD Choices
