my HDX 16t via the digital TV tuner. Spectacular picture. But... I had the speakers on my notebook cranked up as high as possible, but still the football game wasn't loud enough and too hard to hear. The speakers are definitely capable of putting out more, as they do with other applications. There's something about Media Center--the volume is just not high enough. how to boost speakers in Media Center?
I just got my new HP DV 4T. It works very nicely, but the on board sound is just OK. I have the volume control turned up all the way, but you need to be within about 10 feet to heard it well. Is that normal? Do I need some external speakers, or is there are way to boost up the sound?
I have gotten microphone boost working on Conexant HD Audio.
The latest drivers from HP still gave some crackles and pops in the audio although there were no DPC latency issues. So i decided to google around for some better drivers... I found some from Acer and some from Asus, both dated March this year (HP's drivers were from sometime 2008). They worked with my laptop and gave better audio performance, but with one little issue - the internal mic did not work at all, only external did. Now, i didn't really need the onboard mike, nor was it any use anyway because it was way too quiet.
However, i noticed this little option in the new drivers that intrigued me. MIC BOOST. Wait a second... So it is available after all. And it went up to 40dB! Indeed, it worked just fine with an external mic. Then, the idea quickly came. "I'm pretty sure everything is in the INF... Why don't i poke around a little?" And i was right. Thus i got the Asus drivers working with the HP internal microphone. I quickly found out that the 40dB boost still wasn't enough, but then i found a way to get EVEN MORE BOOST. Yay!!! The mic boost still goes up to 40dB only, but now its "baseline" is set much higher. Now with 30dB boost you can hear yourself perfectly in a normal voice at a normal working position, and 40dB already drives it into clipping................
I am making a 10 minute or so powerpoint presentation that will include pictures, music, video, and sound effects in Office mac 2008, on my macbook.
Once I am finished, I will save it onto a USB key. Lets say I now bring the USB key and open the powerpoint in the lecture hall at my school, will the videos and sound effects still work? I know that the pictures will, but not sure about other media content like video and sound effects.
Would it be better to do this in Office 2007 in Windows?
I just received my new dv6t quad edition. The computer is great except one thing that's driving me crazy is the keyboard. Since there is a numeric keypad on the right side, the keyboard and touchpad are not centered to the screen. I find this to feel very awkward.
Anyone else have this issue with the machine? I know the addition of the keypad is not new to this model.
I wanted to update my ATI CCC driver. So I downloaded the latest ccc, uninstalled from from my laptop, restarted, installed latest ccc, restarted. Now when I start windows 7 the little icon doesnt show up in the system tray.
I have an ati mobility radeon 4200 on windows 7 x64.
i can't access the HP's online ho to dissembel video section no more. i had taken apart my DV9500CTO notebook to replace the thermal paste with AS5, and now i want to replace it again with IC7D thermal paste, and i can't seem to find the website that had all the step by step videos on how to dissember the whole laptop. i read through the forums and this link is what most of them are reffering to [url] but i'm not sure if this was the link or not... the link that i used last time was also from HP as well, but it never asked me for no log in or anything. i would click on the link and it just took me to place where i would go find my laptop and it would have small videos on it on how to dissember each part. can some one please show me the way? i know the user manuel kind of shows you how to do it, i've read it, and i beleve the videos are much better, as i can open my laptop up just like in the videos.
i got a new hp tx2 and when i turn it on it came loaded full of "crap" so i wanted to reload 7.. and they didnt send an OS cd... So i went ahead and created a recovery cd and when i reloaded still had all the crap installed.. so i called them up, and was told that HP can not provide me with an OEM CD.. they can only "sell" me a recovery cd which has all their software and drivers preloaded.... So the technical guy is right? i cant get Windows OEM media from them? how stupid is this? dell, toshiba, fujitso, sony send the cds but hp doesnt and they dont even give you an option to buy it.....
When you first recieve your HP HDX or other HP laptops, they come loaded with all types of Media Software and it wouldnt make any sense to keep all the music/dvd players, photo veiwing programs, etc. So my question is, which ones did you decide on keeping and which ones did you decide were junk?
So yesterday after getting home i decided to use my laptop. Well i opened up the screen and noticed my wifi and sound buttons were orange but the sound was still on and so was the wifi. First things first i tried new drivers... No luck. After this i decided to open up the laptop and check the cable. Durring this i got the wifi button to work for about 5 seconds im not sure what i did but it still dosent work. I even tried another media bar cover from a working dv7 still no luck. So does anyone know where my problem might be or do i have to send this laptop into hp?
My HP dv1000 hasn't been working too well for several weeks. Recently, when I started it up, it showed the HP logo, then just said MBR error. I was following these instructions on how to fix it [url], but when I put a new XP CD in and pressed a key to boot from CD, it came up with this error message:
PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel Boot Agent.
Does the dv5t come with a media reader by default, or is that an add-on accessory?
On mine, on the left side, closest to the front of the computer, I see two slots (SD MS/PRO MMC XD is written above them) . One is covered by a piece of metal that looks like it may be able to be pulled out, but I haven't tried. The other is below that. It is just a hole that looks like a memory card can fit into, but I am not sure whether it is active or not.
Is there any way to boost volume on Yoga 13?? I have my system volume and video player volume maxed out and it's STILL not loud enough. No it doesn't have anything to do with what I'm watching, and no, nothing to do with the player. Windows Media, VLC, and Divx have been tried.
I downloaded the newest driver for the nvidia 8600..Which is like a year old now..Sometimes I would get the old blue screen crash and dump when viewing certain dvds..So I checked nvidia's website and got this driver and now I can't even watch dvds in the windows media player 11..I like to use it and other players work like the built in Quickplay..
I thought it was the codec but I am not sure what to do..I have tried a couple things installing codec packages and what nOT..Downloaded the new Divx 7 package and it gave me back avi and some files will now play..But some are s till a green blank...Also the dvd playback won't even do that or play sound..It kinda starts and everything freezes and its just black..The WMP locks up and becomes un responsive...Have shut it down and start over..I was thinking of going back to the old nvidia driver that I had but now sure how to do this..
So I just got my replacement XPS M1640, and luckily enough, the WWAN card slot can be used also for my 1GB 1st gen Turbo Memory card from my M1530. However, upon installing the latest drivers from Intel's website, the Turbo Memory Console indicates that only ReadyDrive is enabled, and that ReadyBoost is disabled. Is there any way to fix this? I know that Turbo Memory is always finicky, as I've dealt with it on my m1530 (but both have been enabled), so when on the 1640 I click the check box to enable it, then restart, it is still disabled, even if I wait 10 minutes in the hopes that it enables after a few minutes of logging in... ?
My HP Envy 15-3040nr has an Intel i7-2670QM processor, which works with Turbo Boost just fine. My laptop goes to a maximum of 3.0 GHz when under full load (I render heavy gameplay videos), and underclocks just fine when in energy saver mode.
However, I want to know if it is possible to LOCK the processor's clock rate at a consistently high rate, say, something like 2.9 (or an unrealistic 3.1 GHz, the rated turbo high) GHz, assuming that heat is not an issue (yes, it obviously will be an issue, but let's just say it isn't).
