HP/Compaq :: Photoshop In Newlaptop-6535b

Just got a Hp Compaq 6535b, and i cant get photoshop to start on it. IT just freezes on start...Installing it took too long, and uninstalling it took waaaay to long.

reinstalled XP and again, same problem.

Could a conflict with some drivers produce this? anything reported on this issue around the net?

On the other hand, the hard drive, from day one, makes a clacking noise everytime it reads this normal? Could a bad HD be the cause of this photoshop problem?

HP/Compaq :: DV6T- Newlaptop- To Un-install
I have had my new DV6T for about an hour and am loving it.


-Intel Core Duo 2 - 2.26Ghz
-ATI Radeon 4530 graphics card
-Windows 7

A few questions...

Other than Norton, Microsoft Works, and the 60 day Microsoft Office trial, what else should I un-install?

How do I set a system restore point?

I want to make a backup of my system now and put it in a blank disc. What disc should I buy to do this (DVD-R)?

Is there any way I can test my CPU and Graphics card to make sure everything is at optimum performance?

HP/Compaq :: NewLaptop Additional Partition
Just got a new HP Laptop dv7t and it comes with 4 partitions on the 320gb hard drive. I need to have the Windows 7 partitions divided for my OS and programs and then a new partition for Data.

I am only allowed 4 partitions (I do not want to use dynamic disks), currently there are two hp ones, recovery and hp tools and the two win7 partitions system and os (Win 7 Prof).

What does everyone do if they want to have an additional partition, delete recovery or hp tools?

HP/Compaq :: Dv2z Good Enough For Photoshop
I am seriously considering buying DV2 with following configuration:
MD Athlon™ Neo Processor for Ultrathin Notebooks MV-404096MB DDR2 System Memory (1 Dimm)320GB (5400RPM) Hard Drive (SATA), SuperMulti 8x DVD+-R/RW DriveGenuine Windows Vista® Home Premium 64-bit with Service Pack 112.1" Diagonal WXGA High-Definition (8) HP LED BrightView Widescreen Display (1280 x 800), ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 3410 Graphics

90% of my PC use would be internet browsing, photoshop elements editing and rarely watching some normal dvd movies.

Will this configuration be good enough for this, or I *must* consider dual core.

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

Apple :: Adobe Photoshop For Mac
I was wondering what is the best place to buy Photoshop CS4 for Mac (price wise and such)? I don't need the entire CS4 Suite just photoshop and I am current college student so I get the discount. I was checking on Amazon last night and I can get the student edition for about $200, I could of swore I saw it for $150 a while back....

I was considering dropping down to Photoshop Elements but have grown up on the full version and am timid to drop to PSE...

Apple :: MBP No Detected Video Card In Photoshop CS4
I've installed Photoshop CS4 11.0.1 on my Macbook Pro (15", 2.8Ghz, nVidia 9600M GT), but under Preferences>Performance, the GPU Settings section is greyed out with the message: "Graphics hardware acceleration is unavailable. You will need to upgrade your video driver and possibly your video card."

I have tried re-installing Photoshop, trashing preference files etc. But the problem still exists. I can't find anything on the web about the 9600M GT or the 9400M not being recognised by Phothop CS4, so what could be causing this?

Apple :: Photoshop CS4 Corrupt Graphics - Does This Mean My 9600 Is Faulty
So Photoshop CS 4 is giving me corrupt graphics. It's very random, I've only come across it a couple of times.

Here's the picture: Click! (1Mb png)

Does this mean that my 9600 is faulty, since CS 4 is using my GPU?

(the only reason I linked the picture is because it's 1680x1050 and 1MB, and I didn't want to stretch the page)

I've had my covet for arround less than a month now and i've now got serious issues with photoshop cs4 and all the cs4 suite.. like selecting actionscript in flash cs4s actionscript panel.. (major lag)

It must be the graphics drivers, but i have installed all the varieties i have read about on this forum both from nvidia & laptovideo2go to no availe.. after opening a few psd's and trying to move layers around from one to the other (via the tabs etc..) it really starts to become unusable.. it feals like there is a graphics card memeory leak or something, also when i open the nvidia control panel to see what's going on the 3d logo start to stutter when i move my mouse over it continiously...

is anybody else having issue with cs4..?

covet, quadcore, 8gb ram, 3700m + 320 hd..

about to install another 320 hd and was happy to see that i don;t have to reinstall everything.... via (ludicrus speed)

Sony :: Do You Enjoy Using The Vaio Z's Screen For Illustrator Or Photoshop Work
How many of you enjoy using the 13.1" (1600x900) screen on the Vaio Z for Illustrator or Photoshop? Do you all plug it into larger monitors before using any of these or other Adobe Creative Suite applications? I do a lot of complex Illustrator work that requires attention to detail, but also some light Photoshop work. Other than that, my use of the laptop would be limited to MS Office, Firefox, and iTunes.

Further, would you prefer a 14.1" (1440x900) screen for Adobe CS work, without an external monitor? Does the extra inch and lower resolution make much of a difference?

At this point, this is the only thing keeping me from hitting the order button on either a somewhat expensive, yet powerful Z (plus an extra monitor, mouse, and keyboard), or a relatively cheaper, albeit less powerful Lenovo T400S (without an extra monitor or other accessories).

(The T400S's beautifully thin (0.83") profile is also rather attractive in comparison to the Z's bulkiness.)

HP/Compaq :: Looking For New OS
Ive just about had it with Vista on my laptop and want to try a new OS before I junk this thing. Is anyone running Win7 or Ubuntu on a HP DV5z AMD 64 bit laptop? The machine is about a year old and I have 4gb of RAM and the thing is a dog. Ive used Ubuntu in the past on Dell laptops and its a pain to get everything running wireless drivers, flash, etc. Win7 being a RC may or may not have everything up to speed on for my machine.

So, if you have Win7 or Ubuntu on a HP DV5z please give me a shout, good or bad.

HP/Compaq :: 16:9 Vs 16:10
I realize a lot of people are not happy losing the vertical space with 16:9.

But wasen;t this the case when we originally moved to widescreen. E.g. with 14" laptops the high-res displays used to SXGA+ which when they became WXGA+ we lost some vertical resolution.

HP/Compaq :: HP NC6220
So I've just purchased this laptop for a descent deal as a secondary/field laptop. Looking to do some minor upgrades on it to give it a little more speed; RAM, CPU and hard drive.

It comes with the Mobile Intel 915GM Express Chipset and I'm curious to know if this model laptop is capable of the famous pin mod. If so, looks like I will be purchasing a cheap 1.6Ghz CPU for a pinmod.

Also does anyone know the largest, Hitachi 7200RPM PATA hard drive? Was it 100GB?

HP/Compaq :: Overheating HP
I have sent my laptop off 3 times to HP to have it repaired and its just came back and is running at 197.6 degrees when playing 720p videos. It got hot enough to char a piece of paper that was sitting next to it on my desk, almost starting a fire if I wasn't there.

The kicker is this laptop was given to me by hp a year and a half ago as a replacement for another overheating laptop. I am now told they don't replace laptops. So I cant call up my credit card company and say I received a lemon, or go back to the store and say you sold me a lemon, as it was given to me by HP.

The case managers have been EXTREMELY rude. Essentially calling me stupid and that im not qualified to diagnose the computer, even though Im a computer technician by trade and have been building computers since I was 9 years old.

IS my only options small claims court? is there anyway to get ahold of anyone higher than their case managers? they claim there isnt. Is there a way to get ahold of the board or ceo?

HP/Compaq :: Dv 6568SE
I have a Dv6568 for a little big over a year now. However, now I seem to be having a few problems with it. First the battery. After charging it too 100% the laptop only seems to last 20 minutes or so. The meter is is fine from around 100- 80 or so but after that it usually drops instantly to 6 and shuts off. I have tried calibrating it with the instructions from the hp site but no change. Another problem I'm having is with the heat. It seems to be really hot on the left palm rest area. It has the 8400M GS so I have a feeling it might be this. However HP didn't list the dv65XX models as ones with defective GPU's.

HP/Compaq :: Hp DV2000
I have a HP DV2000 and recently it would not boot up. It gets to the windows screen and then rebots itself. Upon trying to reinstall the windows OS I got into the bios to see that the hard drive can't be detected.

problem can be my hard drive or my motherboard. The computer is out of warranty and my question is how can I be able to diagnose the what the exact problem is? Should I just buy a new hard drive and try that or is there anything I can do in the bios to further diagnose the problem??

I know there are some OC guides out there, but this laptop is almost 3 years old, and as far as I can tell does not have an option in the BIOS. Also, my proc is the T2600, not the one is this review, but other than that exactly the same. I am looking to play around with this because it is old and I dont care too much if I fry it since my new hotness is on the way.

HP/Compaq :: My HDX18
I bought my HP HDX X18T-1200 CTO approx. 6 months ago and it was installed Vista on it. I upgraded it to W7 (clean install, of course) and I think W7 is a great OS, and way better than Vista. But, as i remember, ever since i started using W7, my problems with this laptop started too. Generally, my laptop has 4 main problems:

1. My eject button and bass/treble slider aren't working! I've read a lot of users are complaining about this issue but some of them say they can make it work. I'm wondering how they do it (and how can i do it, of course ).

2. When I install MediaSmart, QuickPlay, Tone Control (or whatever they are called) program that has volume/bass/treble indicator, it doesn't work properly and keeps popping up (especially it happens when I close the laptop's cover or wake up the computer from the hibernate mode). So I deleted all the software related with this. When it pops up, my bass/treble sliders (but not the volume slider) are malfunctioning, too, bass and treble levels just keeps increasing and decreasing, increasing and decreasing, increasing and decreasing...

3. My remote control buttons doesn't work at all. I think it's a software-related issue (because it was working a few months ago, my remote control and its batteries are okay too). As I said, Currently I have nothing which is related with QuickPlay, MediaSmart etc. installed on my computer, i think that's the problem. Which program(s) should I install?

4. The issue that annoys me the most is, sometimes (it happens especially when I close the laptop's cover or wake up the computer from the hibernate mode, too) my touchpad enhancements doesn't work, it can't even recognise my taps! At first, I thought it's a touchpad-related issue. But one day, when I can't use the enhancements, I turned on a key grabber software (the software which shows the key codes) and I see the codes of bass and treble slider's buttons! The computer thinks I press the bass/treble slider's buttons constantly bu I don't even touch them!

HP/Compaq :: HP Quicktouch (XP)
I've got a HP Pavillion dv6113us, running Windows XP Media Center Edition.

2 days ago, I upgaded to Windows XP Service Pack 3 and .NET Framework 3.5. After the upgrade, I had a few problems with my Quicklaunch AND Quicktouch.

1. When I clicked on the Quickplay button, Quickplay would not open. (This was resolved after I talked to HP, and they made me download a Quicklaunch driver for my dv6113us. It's working fine)

2. The Volume Level Bar OSD does not appear. The volume does change accordingly if I run my fingers across the button, but I can't see the light green OSD which appears at the bottom of the screen.

I again talked to HP, and they told me to download the Quicktouch driver for the Compaq Presario B2000 series. This works, but it's unfortunately not my ORIGINAL volume level bar. It's a compressed version, and I can barely see it, the colors are too light. I prefer my old volume level bar OSD, which came originally with my HP dv6113us.

HP/Compaq :: DV 9605 EA
my close to 2 yr old HP DV 9605 EA has been giving me problems recently.

1. Firstly I have a problem while starting it up after it has been shut down for a while.
I have to power up and power down a few times before anything comes up on the screen.

When something does come up on screen, it offers me an option to repair start-up. But if I choose it, it eventually gives up and says it can't be repaired.

2. Also, I've been having problems with my DVD RW drive. Windows basically seems to fail to recognise it.

I read somewhere that I should try and re-install drivers by deleting the driver for the DVD drive in devide manager, which causes Windows to automatically find drivers for the drive and reinstall them.

On trying this, I was able to play an audio CD on it for a while. But after say 5 mins. it stopped recognising the drive again.
