Dell :: Need Help Upgrading Drivers

Jan 1, 2010

Normally I can do this easlly, but for some reason I'm having a hard time bringing my XPS16 Video drivers up to speed.

Maybe it's because I'm used to dealing with Nvidia drivers....

Can someone detail the process?

HP/Compaq :: Upgrading Ram Of Dv6244us

Sep 3, 2009

I've been thinking about upgrading my computers ram and after doing a quick search I found this. Now assuming this everything is correct I should be able to add another gb of ram to my system. My question is, will I need to do anything such as increase the fan speed to stop overheating, or should adding another gig with the default fan settings not give me any trouble as far as overheating goes?

HP/Compaq :: Upgrading Processor

Mar 26, 2010

im thinking of upgrading the processor on my relatively old Compaq V6133CL. I currently have dual-core AMD 64 X2 TL-52 with 1.6GHz and want to upgrade to dual-core AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-60 with 2.0GHz. I did research on my own and asked HP tech support, which is pretty useless, but still need some advice. My question is will it be supplied with enough voltage, seems like it needs 1.075 / 1.10. The socket type is S1 in both. Are there any other things that I should be aware of?

My current system:
1.6 GHz AMD Turion TL-52
Mobo: Quanta 30B7 with F.3D bios from HP
2Gb DDR2

HP/Compaq :: Before Upgrading To Windows 7

Dec 2, 2009

I've finally recieved my windows 7 disk from HP

But before I go and upgrade/install everything I have a few questions.

1. Am I able to do a clean install? Does the product key in the kit allow for me to do this?

2. How would I go about doing a clean install properly? (paranoid about mucking things up)

3. After doing a clean install, am I able to use the second disk to update the drivers, etc. or can I only use it when doing the upgrade option?

HP/Compaq :: Upgrading Dv2 To Dv2z

Jun 16, 2009

The idea is to replace dv2's MV-40 CPU with newer AMD Athlon(TM) Neo X2 (L335) or AMD Turion(TM) Neo X2 (L625). Any thoughts on this?

The questions are:

1) do dv2 and dv2z have the same motherboards?

2) how complicated would it be to replace CPU in a dv2?

3) is it worth it?

HP/Compaq :: 8510p Hardware Upgrading

Jan 2, 2010

I'm using my 8510p. I was smart enough to buy an extended warranty, and it has proven to be quite usefull. (2 screen repairs and a new GPU.)

Now, over the time I have upgraded my notebook. The main HDD was upgraded with a 640GB drive, and I replaced my DVD/CD drive with a special bracket that allows you to install an extra Hard drive. Until so far, all these upgrades could easily be reversed for warranty purposes.

Now, I'm thinking about upgrading my original WSXGA+ screen with a WUXGA screen. (1680x1050 to 1920x1200) As since I'm using my computer a lot for graphical applications and CAD related stuff.

Now, I found a supplier that can supply me the screen, but he only recommends me to change my screen with something of the same resolution. He fears that the inverter may not be able to pull the higher resolution, nor my motherboard/gpu fail to recognize the new part.

Do you guy's think that this upgrade could be possible?

Personnaly I would go for it, since the 8510p was offered with a WUXGA screen, and the CCFL of the new screen would be exactly the same as the (current) WSXGA+ screen.

HP/Compaq :: Upgrading Dv6000 Screen

Mar 1, 2009

My 2 years old dv6000 display yesterday started to show a thin yellow vertical line about 2 inch from the right of the screen which run from top to bottom, and after a bit of googling, I found out it's unrepairable and I need to replace the screen

Anyway, after reading some of the threads on this forum, it seems to me that it's possible to replace the screen with a higher resolution one, albeit on dv9XXX ones. Has anyone done this upgrade on dv6XXX? And what screen (spare parts no/maker) did you get? Was there any 'misfit' with the hinge/panel/connector/inverter?

Vidcard=NVIDIA Go 7400
Screen =15.4" WXGA HighGloss BrightView
Screen max resolution=1280X800

HP/Compaq :: HP ZV6000 Still Worth Upgrading (FX-55)

HP/Compaq :: HP DV7 2015txquick Question: Upgrading CPU

Jun 14, 2009

I am about to purchase the HP DV7 2015tx, with the q9000 cpu.

I am happy with everything, except the potential future performance of the CPU. The only remaining question for me is whether it is possible to upgrade the CPU to say, a q9550 if in future I am not happy with the speed of the q9000. I'm afraid I don't know the motherboard type or what it supports.

Also, if it is possible, might this create heat issues or like instability?

HP/Compaq :: Upgrading Laptop Memory To 6GB

If you were to upgrade your laptop with dual channel memory, what combination would you use to upgrade to 6GB? Currently, I have a dv8 with 4GB (2x2GB). Would you have a combination of 2GB and 4GB? Wouldn't the ram pieces have to be of the same value and from the same manufacture?

HP/Compaq :: HP G60-535DX : Upgrading Memory

Nov 29, 2009

I just bought a new HP laptop and it has 3gb ddr2 memory. It says that the max memory is 4gb, but I was wondering if you can put in say 6gb or 8gb? Reason I ask is because I saw a sony laptop that was essentially the same with the memory being the exception. On the Sony, it came with 4gb and was expandable to 8gb. Oh, and my laptop is running Windows 7 64bit if that matters. If its not possible, Ill just upgrade to 4gb... If you guys could though, maybe tell me what limits a pc's ability to run a certain amount of memory? Mine has 2 slots for memory and I have seen some 4gb sticks for sale, but Im not going to spend the money on something that wont work.

HP/Compaq :: Upgrading DV6408nr To Draft N

Jan 18, 2009

I am looking to upgrade the internal wireless card of my dv6408nr to a card that supports draft N networking. I tried an extra Intel 4965 a/b/g/n card my friend had and the computer would not even boot. Is anyone aware of an internal card that would work? I hate to order something and have it lock up like the Intel card caused. Alternatively is there a way to make the Intel 4965 work? FWIW, I am looking to avoid a USB or Express Card solution.

HP/Compaq :: Upgrading A 8530w To A Quad Core

Mar 24, 2009

my plan is to buy an 8530w and swap out the cpu for a Q9100 Quad Core. Anyway, is there special cooling needed for the quad core? I asked only because i noticed that if I tried to add a quad core on the HP website it requires a 'special' graphics card. This got me thinking that they might have added something for the quad cores that they leave out of the normal ones.

HP/Compaq :: Upgrading Envy 15 (Gen 1) To ATI 5830 And USB3.0

Apr 28, 2010

I am thinking a bit later on this year of perhaps upgrading my Envy, as I would love to get USB3.0 and a bit more power on the gaming side would be great.

Not wanting to fork out the money for a brand new one, I thought I might possibly be able to upgrade just the motherboard to the current model (i7 version), which would include the USB3 and 5830 graphics... and would cost me quite a bit less (my current specs are in signature)

I just want to know if that would be possible? I assume that all the other parts are pretty much interchangeable, and from what I can see there were no significant changes to the chassis or anything else from Gen 1 to Gen 2....

HP/Compaq :: Upgrading A DV9000 Series Laptop

Feb 21, 2010

I'm looking to upgrade a few things on my HP DV9743cl and I am having some problem finding out if the factory components will support the possible upgrades.

T7250 ---> T9900

3gb PC2-5300 ---> 4gb PC2-6400
I've actually purchased the PC2-6400 ram, but I'm curious if it'll actually run at this performance or stay at the PC2-5300 performance level after the install.

Can this even be done since the GPU is integrated?

2x 160gb (which I think are at 5400 rpm) ---> 1x SSD Intel x25-M 80gb for the OS and a 10,000rpm HD for secondary

Currently running Windows 7 32bit after a clean install.
