HP/Compaq :: Upgrades Possible For A HP- HDX18 1010EA


I recently purchased a pavillion HDX18. standard configuration as far as I know, see below:

Processor: Intel Core2 Duo CPU P8400 @ 2.26GHz
Memory: 4,096MB (2x 2,048 SODIMM)

Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT

Hard drives 2 x 232GB ST9250827ASS

This is a nice system, but I have some spare cash at the moment and am looking to improve it.

What has been suggested sofar is :

Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad Processor QX9300 (2.53Hz) for the processor

UpGrading to 2x 4GB DDR2 or DDR3 DIMMs for a total of 8GB.

The graphics card I have been told can not be touched as it is a part of the mother board.

So the only components left where I feel I may get more speed is the drives. Saddly I have sofar been unable to find any information regarding the replacement of the current "disk drives" with solid state ones.

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 :: Hdx18/dv8 Lcd
I somehow have a nick on my HDX18 LCD. From what I can see, the LCD is actually behind the front bezel. I did a google and there's only one place in the net (Pchub) I can purchased a front bezel [url] The store is in Singapore and it is a used part. There's no guarantee that the part is scratch free.

Does anyone know whether the LCD front bezel can really be replaced and anywhere else I can find the part. HP don't have them and they insist on replacing the WHOLE LCD instead of the bezel.

HP/Compaq :: HDX16 Or HDX18
I am a designer (graphics, website, multimedia, video) so while I don't play a lot of high end games, I do work with a lot of high quality imagery. (Note: I don't do much if any 3D rendering, so I'm safe there.)

Now I've been looking for a new laptop because the one I currently have (HP dv8000) is actually "owned" by my "day job" (also design) and I have been "let go" so the laptop has to go back. I have been very happy with this HP, and have looked at many in my search, but always seem to come back to the HPs.

Originally I was looking at another dv model - the dv7t I believe - but called HP's sales line and after a few questions the sales rep said without a doubt I need the HDX line.

So I've come to my question. I gave myself a $2k budget, so the closer to that the better, but I *do* have a little extra to play with in case something pops up. And having that extra is making my decision hard!

Should I go for the HDX16, maybe save a few bucks, or go for the HDX18 and upgrade to a dual-HDs and quad processors and the 1GB video card?

HP/Compaq :: HDX18 Blu-ray Volume
when I pop in a Blu-ray movie, I'm getting pretty anemic sound and I need to turn the volume all the way up to get it to a decent level. Even then, it's pretty weak.

However, when I'm playing a game (like WoW), the sound is big and full and I actually need to turn it down most of the time.

Why is the sound output so bad when watching BR discs? Anyone else experience this difference in volume and quality of sound? My DV7 was the same way with BR discs. Maybe there is a setting I'm missing to adjust this?

HP/Compaq :: Windows 7 On HDX18
Everyone should be dumping Vista, and embracing W7, especially when you figure as a general rule you should be formatting your C drive and reloading your OS at least annually, and W7 is available freely from microsoft HERE until July 2009, and will be fully functional till March 2010. Many of us in the owners lounge have already made the jump, and you will be hard pressed to find any complaints. Who knows, they may have a discounted W7 install disc ordering link at hp.com like they do for Vista Ultimate.

One of the benefits of W7 is running XP in compatibility mode.(virtually) To run this the best way, you will need to enable "virtualization technology" in your bios, at the "system configuration" tab. LJCook wrote a nice little guide HERE.

Concerning that row of buttons above your keyboard... I am trying to refine this process, so that you need not install all the MediaSmart bloatware unless you want to, and still have a functioning row of buttons, so check back here in a few days, but in my 32 bit version, I installed the audio driver listed below, as well as the mediasmart MPV, and then the mediasmart smartmenu update, (both listed on the HP HDX driver page under Vista 32), and now I have fully functional smartmenu button control..........

HP/Compaq :: New HDX18 Stopped Booting Up
This is my second HDX 18 Laptop sent by HP in the last month. I've had this one for about a week. Everything was fine when I went to bed last night. This morning when I went to start it up it stays at the first screen (the one with the bios logo and tells you to press f10 for options) sorry if I am wrong on describing that. I can get to the Bios but I get 7 loud beeps before it enters. I am now running the system diagnostic tests on it because I have NO idea what else to do!

I don't know that much about computers so I would just ask that you use beginners terms.

now I am getting something that says "Start-up Test" Failed "Boot device not found" (3F0)
What does this mean?? ****

HP/Compaq :: Popping Sounds On HDX18
I have an HDX18 with IDT HD Sound (Vista Ultimate 64-bit). I've noticed an annoying popping sound with most applications. For instance, when using Trillian instant messenger, when I receive a message the speakers make a distinct pop at the start of the "ding" and at the end. The sound itself is clear, but always initiates and concludes with some kind of pop or click.

This is the same for all Windows sounds (which I've now disabled because of the audio annoyance). I tried disabling the Dolby effects through the IDT control panel, but that made things worse!

HP/Compaq :: Water Damage On HDX18
I have an issue on my 8 month old HP HDX18 laptop....my 3 yr old son was watching a video and accidently spilled 1/4 glass of water on the laptop.

The lappie shut off and wouldn't turn back on. I quickly disconnected it from the wall and removed the battery. Then I opened up the case up, took apart the mem, HDD and left it outside in my backyard today to dry up and then put everything together and booted up. Laptop boots up usual now BUT the wireless/volume are disabled. Some of the arrow keys are also not functioning normal either. While its obvious its not a total h/w failure, I have some doubts on the mobo/keyboard.

I do have the HP warranty but I'm pretty sure it doesn't cover water damage.

HP/Compaq :: IR Receiver Not Working On My HDX18
I'm not sure when it stopped working, all I know is that It used to be able to power on my laptop even if it wasn't turned on as long as I had the battery in, but now that's not even working.

I ended up finding that there's a device conflict between the motherboard and it, but this isn't being helpful in what's conflicting.

I've gone through driver reinstalled, and a BIOS flash, but of course none of that worked;

HP/Compaq :: Display Driver Update HDX18
I have a weird behavior of my brand new HP HDX18 (running Windows Vista 64 bit).

The Laptop does not play BluRay DVDs any more. It only worked two times. I can access the BluRay file system so I assume that the BluRay drive is working. Then trying to watch the movie with either HP MediaSmart or Windows Media Center, both programs hang and need to be stopped via Task Manager.

HP support recommended a video driver update - but...

When I try to install the recommended update of the display driver from the HP HDX18 support site, it installs and the laptop remains working (I hear sounds when receiving new emails or when wiping my finger on the finger print sensor), but the result is simply a black screen. Same thing when using the nvidia beta drivers for notebook chips.

I tried to first switch to Standard VGA, then removing the old nvidia package, then installing the new driver. Same result: A black screen.

All I can do is doing a system recovery to get a working display again.

I did the BIOS update that I downloaded from the HP site as well. I currently have the Spyder software for screen calibration running.

HP support also recommended a "hard reset" of my windows installation, but since I just finished the complete installation of all programs I need, this is not what I really want.

HP/Compaq :: DV5t FYI (Processor Upgrades)
you have to be very careful with your HP notebook upgrade plans and that, because of BIOS limitations, processor upgrades are “usually” considered limited to what has been offered as OE. While there have been exceptions to this general rule of thumb, they're usually few and far between and risky if you don’t have the big bucks for experimentation. Well, I happen to be at NewEgg looking around a bit and came upon an interesting processor review.

TNO 821 at NewEgg has posted a review after upgrading his DV5t to a Intel P9500 (25w, 2.53GHz, 6MB L2 Cache). I’m not sure, perhaps this processor was actually offered at some time as OE, but it is not however currently listed in the HP Maintenance & Service Guide for this model. Therefore, it seems noteworthy to report that it appears that this processor is an viable upgrade option for DV5t owners so inclined. ….. and perhaps others as well.

Acer :: 8920/30 And Upgrades
I've been searching around, but haven't found much info on upgrading some components of the 8920...I'll have to admit that my search skills are not top notch...

I'm leaning towards the 8920-6030 model, but there's a few things I'd like changed.

Can the CPU be upgraded? I'm thinking about slapping a T9x00 in there. Maybe a T9500 instead of the T8100. I know the CPU here isn't much of a bottleneck, but I'm a nut.

Can the GPU be upgraded? I looked at the manual that was posted here on the forum, and it showed a "GPU Socket". Does that mean I can pull out the 9500M and stick something like a 8800M GTX in it's place?

Apple :: Smooth Upgrades With Mac
Just looking for a few opinions on how smooth upgrades are on a Mac...Not routine system updates, but more like say, Leopard to Snow Leopard.

Any time I have ever done a major upgrade on a Windows machine, like from XP to Vista or reinstalling Vista to get rid of bloatware, the system(s) just jave never been as reliable or as smooth. I have no idea why, it's just something I've noticed anytime I've done any major changes to the initial operating system installation.

I'm eying the new 13" Macbook Pro, and want all the improvements of Snow Leopard, but I don't know if I should wait for it to be released and get it on the system by default.

Dell :: M1730 Processor Upgrades
I just bought the Intel X9000 processor and was wondering if the processor alone will improve my graphics processing a little without getting the 8800m GTX card. I really do not want to pay for card with can cost as much as a new laptop. I got the processor under 500 dollars. Right now I installed Batman: Arkham Assylum and it plays good but there is room to get better on the response time. With the existing graphics card the game runs only with a slight lap but nothing that takes away from it. I am sure any online activity will be more prominent.

I've got an old VAIO S170 that I'm interested in upgrading. However, information has been hard to come by (many dead links since this is an old unit).

information regarding what I'd like to do:

1) Processor Upgrade
I've been told that I can upgrade my processor to a Pentium M 770. My question is, is this possible? The 770 I believe has a 533MHz FSB, while my current processor has a 400MHz FSB. Will the 770 work at 400MHz FSB? 533MHz? Is there a better processor you guys would recommend?

2) RAM Upgrade
I believe that the maximum amount of RAM that the system will support is 2GB. However, the only 1GB sticks of PC2700 172 pin RAM are pretty pricey. Where can I get cheaper RAM? Can I use newer/cheaper RAM?

3) HD Upgrade
I believe my model is one of the older units with an IDE HD interface. What's the fastest/best HD I can install?

4) Port Replicator/Docking Station
Anyone know the model # of the docking station/port replicator for this unit?
