HP/Compaq :: Pavilion Dv5000 Series: More Than 2GB RAM

Aug 24, 2009

I have purchased a dv5178us Pavilion laptop 3 years ago and I feel it is time for memory upgrade. The manual and all the online memory stores say it only accepts 2 x 1GB memory modules.

I wonder if anyone have tested to install more memory, let's say 2 x 2GB modules, and if it works. I'm guessing that it may function based on some eMacs that used to work with more RAM that the manual informed.

HP/Compaq :: Battery Not Charging --HP Pavilion Dv5000

Mar 11, 2010

Battery will no longer take a charge. I can use a different adaptor and I have the same problem. I can take the battery out and re-charge it in my Presario v5000 without any problem using same power brick. ergo no battery or power brick problems.

HP will only run on battery power. When power is plugged in green lite flashes and battery icon says it is charging, but it is not.

It will not run on AC.

HP Pavilion Dv5000 Networking :: Wireless Gone After Restored Using Recovery Partition

Jun 8, 2014

I have an HP pavilion dv5000, running XP. I recently had to use the recovery partition to restore it to factory condition, but now there is no wireless. I checked in the Device Manager and it's as if it never existed, I can only use it hooked up to my router by cable...

HP/Compaq :: HP Dv5000 Video

Jan 3, 2009

There is a white line across my screen and its a hardware issue, not a software issue. If I press on the left part of the LCD I can make the line disappear, but once I relieve the pressure it comes back again.

Does this sound like an inverter failure? From what I read this symptom doesnt sound typical for an inverter.

HP/Compaq :: HP Pavilion DM3Z Series Or DM3T Series For Adobe Photoshop

Dec 6, 2009

my friend is thinking about purchasing a new laptop for his mother. The HP DM3 laptops look to the best solution so far since they are both lightweight and have great battery life, something he thinks she'll appreciate. One thing i'm not sure about is their ability to run Adobe Photoshop CS4 smoothly.

I don't use Photoshop very often and when I do, it's on my laptop, which is pretty decent in terms of specifications. Will the program run fine on a laptop with a Intel CULV or AMD Neo processor and integrated graphics? Which leads me to my next question:

Which Pavilion laptop would you recommend? Are they both similar to each other than the processors?

HP/Compaq :: HP Pavilion Zd8100 Notebook PC Series

Jul 7, 2009

A friend of mine has this model ( zd8180ea) and is having a peculiar problem. When he edits documents or surfs the web his keyboard fails to type some letters. He writes a word and some letters do not show up. Often space fails to work and words, attempts of words, are linked together. I am not a big HP expert but I think there is a faulty keyboard connection. I could be wrong and a software solution is available. Can anyone give me a hand?

OS: Xp Sp3

Where can I find the ATK drivers for this model?

HP/Compaq :: Asus G50Vt-X5 Vs.Pavilion Dv7t Series

Jun 3, 2009

I am trying to decide what I should get between two laptops that I will get as a graduation present. To be honest, I am pretty much a total noob when it comes to laptops, so any advice would be welcome. My choices are between the Asus G50Vt-X5 or one of the HP Pavilion dv7t series laptops. My budget is around $1000.

I was at Best Buy the other day when I was shown the Asus for the first time and I really like how it looked and felt, much more than the overly glossiness of the HP laptops. However, I know HP has a pretty good reputation, as the rest of my family has HP's and they seem to run just fine.

Here are the specs for both:


Note: I used Cnet for the Asus laptop because Asus's own website kinda sucks for providing specs.

Truth be told, I like to game a little and would really like to be able to run Star Craft 2 (if that has any signifigance to you guys) when it finally comes out.......

HP Pavilion G Series OS/Software :: Battery Not Being Detected After Windows Update

Jun 3, 2012

I own a HP Pavilion G series laptop and have windows 8.1 running on it. Windows just made me finish an update after which it is not detecing my battery anymore. At first, it said: "Plugged in but not charging". Hence, I shutdown the computer, removed the battery and plugged it back in. Now it just says: "No battery is detected".
I should mention that I am not using the original battery that came with the laptop. It is an extended battery which was working fine until the update.
Now, its switching the message between: "No battery is detected" and " Plugged in but not charging"

HP Pavilion Dv4t 1600 OS/Software :: Mobile Intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family Driver Update

Sep 3, 2011

I've been having trouble updating my graphics driver. I have a HP Pavillion dv4t 1600 CTO laptop. My operating system is Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. My driver device is a Mobile Intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family, and driver version is from 8/27/2009. I've been trying to install the lastest from Intel which is However, when attempting to  update drivers I receive an error message:
"The driver being installed is not vaildated for this computer. Please obtain the appropriate driver from the cmputer manufacturer. Set up will exit."
This leads me to the HP website were I attempt to find a suitable update. However, when using the HP updater or manual search, I end with the same type of driver for graphics, sound, and chipset. My problem is: I don't know which one needs to be updated. 
I play World of Warcraft, and I receive the message "Your driver device is out of date". That could mean any of them, so while using the Intel Driver Update Utility, none of my drivers appeared. And every time I try to update via HP, it appears that nothing has changed. I'll try to provide as much detail as possible and hope to hear back soon about my problem. Attached below as well are screenshots from the dxdiag window.

I changed the battery but the problem still exists

While the battery charges... HP Battery Check show Good when it does not, the battery check shows Replace...

I've formatted the system and tried Vista twice and Windows 7 also and recaliberated the battery but to no success...

Is it the motherboard...

HP/Compaq :: HP Pavilion Dv2

Apr 1, 2009

I'm currently looking into buying a new ultraportable laptop or netbook and this notebook looks like it fits my needs perfectly. My old 15.4" laptop is starting to show it's age and is becoming a pain to lug around campus all day. Plus the battery life is starting to decrease to under 1:30 hours..

Is there any word when this notebook will be available? I read that it's going to be sometime this month. How much will it be with the external DVD or Blu-ray drive? And are there going to be any other battery options other than the standard 4-cell? I'm probably only willing to purchase this notebook if it gets 4-5+ hours of battery life.. so how long do you think it will last?

HP/Compaq :: Pavilion DV5- Cooling

Jan 30, 2009

despite the fact that it can only use 3 of its 4 gigs of RAM, I still love my new DV5.

There's only one, tiny kink...

It's getting hot. Very hot. My hands aren't burning, but I can feel the heat in my palms.

Speedfan readings:
Core 0: Average temperature's around 47C
Core 1: Avg. Temp. is 49C
GPU: Here's the real problem. IT'S ON FREAKING 54C!!!

These temperatures are bloody DANGEROUS. And I'm going to be using this for gaming.

HP/Compaq :: HP Pavilion Dv6-1299ea

Sep 8, 2009

I have just seen this HP laptop on www.play.com and it looks pretty amazing! It's up for pre-order coming out on Friday and is 599, here are its specs:

Processor: AMD Turion X2 mobile processor RM-75 / 2.2 GHz
Memory: 4GB
HD Capacity: 320GB
Display: 15.6"
Graphics Card: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4650 - 1GB
Operating System: Windows Vista Home Premium 64 bit
Dimensions (WxDxH): 37.9 cm x 25.8 cm x 4.1 cm
Weight: 2.9 kg


The only thing that stops me from just pre-ordering this laptop is the fact it hasn't been released yet and so there aren't any reviews saying whether it's good or bad that and that I have never used AMD instead of Intel and the last ATI graphics card I had was shocking to say the least. What do you guys think? Are HP laptops good, reliable etc and are these specs that great?

HP/Compaq :: HP Pavilion DV4 1225ee

Feb 8, 2009

I bought the laptop two days ago and it seems an excellent laptop.

I had some problems with creating system recovery Dvd, but eventually i recognized that the problem was in the type of dvd i used. I changed the type of dvd and created the system recovery discs, and everything is working quite well!

I'd be very glad to keep in touch with all those who purchased this series.

HP/Compaq :: Reviving An Old Pavilion

May 6, 2010

My Pavilion dv8333ea's (specs here) GPU died the other day

It was getting old (3.5 years) but I'd never had a problem with it before and aside from the GPU it still works fine (except the screen looks like it may have been programmed by Picasso (random pixels everywhere!).

If this were any other laptop, I'd just replace it, but there was something special about this one: It had a firewire port with a Texas Instruments chipset (this is the Holy Grail of firewire audio recording). Plus, it genuinely was a good laptop

HP/Compaq :: Pavilion Dv6 From Newegg

Aug 27, 2009

about the dv6-1268nr that Newegg is selling for $800. I am looking for an affordable, pre-built laptop to replace my busted Studio 1555 and this really caught my eye. The only thing that is holding me back right now is I have some experience with AMD processors and they tend to have heat issues. The reviews on Newegg also say this but they don't seem like expert reviews.

The only reason I created a new topic is because the dv6 thread has basically been dead since the HDX 16 came out.

HP/Compaq :: Pavilion DV5- RAM Compatibility

Jan 30, 2009

It's pretty nicely specced out, but I won't go over the details, since the GPU and processor have nothing to do with it.

It comes with 4GB of DDR2 RAM, but it's only running a 32-bit OS (or so the box says). Does that mean that only 3GB will be used?

if it does have a 64-bit version of Vista, there's another problem. My backup for my old system was for Vista 32-bit. Will this cause problems on a 64-bit OS? Microsoft support says that some models may face problems when running 32-bit backups on a 64-bit OS, but is this one of them?

HP/Compaq :: HP Pavilion 5228TX

May 27, 2009

when I brought out my old HP dv5228TX laptop for a 3 month trip. When i brought it with me, the power cord was already burnt through around the adaptor so i bought a new one immediately. The problem is, i kept getting blue screen of death whenever i do ANYTHING in windows, which was a major annoyance. I thought it might have been the CD-ROM that was beginning to be faulty or dying so i disabled it in hardware manager. When the BSODs wouldn't go away, i thought it might have been a memory hardware problem. I set out to find 1gb ddr2 memory (2 of them) but since they were 45$ each, i thought i might as well wait until my trip to taiwan before i hastily bought it here (since taiwan has cheaper hardware).

Now previously i had owned a NuSlim MOBILE disk case so that i can take out the harddrive in my HP pavilion laptop to access the files in case the computer itself failed. So when the Blue screen of death wouldn't go away, I decided to use the NuSlim mobile disk to store my HP hard drive and use it on my HP Presario B1900 laptop as a USB Drive. I searched on the internet and learned that you can boot directly from a USB drive. When i decided to boot from my "hp pavilion hard drive" the USB way, a MBR error popped up. Which meant that the hard disc itself had a bad master boot sector. This was a slap in the face because my Blue screen of death could have been all attributed to a corrupted hard drive. When i discovered this, I immediately tried to put my harddrive back into my HP pavilion so that i can run recovery manager directly via F11 at startup.

Now here is my problem! Not only does it not let me go into recovery manager at all at start up when i press F11, windows does not even boot. The weird thing is, when I put the harddrive into the NuSlim mobile disk, all the files works (including the recovery partition).

Is it possible to reformat my entire hard drive back to factory condition since the recovery partition is techinically there? It just won't let me enter it possibly due to bad master boot sector. I even tried to access the recovery partition itself through the USB via my HP presario. Is it also possible to create a recovery disc if i have access to this recovery partition even though booting it from the HP pavilion itself doesn't seem to work? Please help as soon as possible because i do not wish to purchase a recovery disc from HP since i do not have warranty anymore (and since i have the recovery partition anyway). the OS i'm using is Windows XP and i tried looking on the HP website for the recovery order form but apparently they dont have it. I do not wish to purchase the Vista recovery disc since my HP pavilion is only 1gb and it will not run well on vista.

HP/Compaq :: Pavilion Dv4-1225dx HDD

Dec 24, 2009

A friend of mine has a Pavilion dv4-1225dx notebook and spilled some wine that according to him hardly hit the laptop, but something happened as it doesn't want to work anymore.

He called HP and the notebook was shipped to them, then he got a call and they told him that the warranty was void as there was liquid damage.

I took the thing, put it my Vista DVD from my Dell and it did start up, but just before it wanted to install it couldn't find the hard drive and asked me for a driver I don't have. I did download all the drivers from the HP support site but I'm not sure if that driver was even there. Nothing of what I downloaded worked.

Ran the memory and hard drive test and hard drive test failed. Replaced the hard drive with a new one that was already formatted and ran the test again. At least this time it did see a hard drive, though the test failed again and it gave me some error code (think it was 10008).

Could this be a driver issue or might it be the mother board? I don't think it's worth putting a lot of money in the notebook but if it's a driver issue I'd try to fix it.

Basically I don't even get to the point where I could install Windows as it seems to be unable to address the hard drive.
