HP/Compaq :: Way To Turn On Envy 15 Without Opening Lid

Jan 8, 2010

Most of the time I use my Envy 15 on my desk and hooked up to an external monitor. In this mode I do not use the laptop screen, so have it set to just display on the external.

However, to turn on the laptop obviously I have to open it up and press the power switch.

What I want to do, is turn it on whilst keeping it closed. I used to be able to do this with my Dell Latitude E6400, as it has an option in the BIOS to turn on automatically when AC is connected. Thus, when I turned it off I would simply unplug power, then to turn it on again would just plug the power back in without having to open lid.

I have looked, and the Envy 15 BIOS is very limited and I don't see a similar option. Is there possibly another solution to get it to turn on when closed?

HP Envy M6 :: UltraBook Touch Won't Turn On?

Nov 1, 2014

I have an envy m6 touchscreen that is giving me problems that i can't solve. It has been great up until recently. i was using my laptop last nite when suddenly it turned off but i didn't think that the battery shoukd have been dead yet. its acting as if the bat is empty and plugging it in just turn on the orange led by the power plug. when i press the power button it flashes for a second but the screen does nothing and it doesn't actually turn on.I'm using my phone to attempt to find a solution atm which is very frustrating. adding to the stress is the fact that i have school work projects and a midterm project on it that I need to finish.Almost forgot to mention it started doing a few other odd things over the last week such as the touchscreen going nuts registering phantom touches endlessly until i close/hibernate/shutdown it.

HP Envy M6 1117 TX Networking :: How To Turn On Wifi On Laptop

Aug 2, 2014

How do I turn on Wifi with my Envy m6 1117TX laptop?  A few days ago, a technician from a mobile wireless provider told me how to turn it off but now I have access to a Wifi connection and I can't remember how to turn it on.  I've spent all day trying to find any information on this at all and have come to the conclusion that HP has easily the worst support system for simple questions of any company I've ever encountered.

beats edition as compared to the envy 15 version.

1. What reason is there for the 800 dollar difference in price other than the beats headphones?

2.Does the back of the case only have the beats logo on it or is there any type of laser etching like on the original envy.

HP/Compaq :: 6540b Won't Turn On

Feb 26, 2010

I have a hp probook 6540b from work.

Yesterday when i went out of work, i closed the lid put it in my backpack and left it there until this morning.

Today when i tried to turn it on nothing seems to happen except the battery light that is blinking when i press the power button.

It blinks fast like 5-7 times changing color between blue and orange, and then just turns off.

I tried removing the battery and turning it on with just the AC adapter - same effect, same blinking.

I tried just with the battery - nothing at all (not even the blinking)

With the battery and the adapter together - blinking.

I have a feeling that yesterday it didn't go to sleep when i closed the lid and what happened is taht it was working closed inside my backpack until it either fried something from the heat, or the battery ended from the fans blowing full on.. But that's just a hunch..

meaning of the blinking battery light ?

Or maybe has a service manual that i can check ?

Acer :: 1410 Resume On Lid Opening

Nov 21, 2009

just got my 1410 SU2300 machine. I did a clean install of Windows 7 Pro x64 and installed the updated Intel drivers for video and chipset from the Timeline Tweaks thread (all the others were from Windows Update). With the Win7 Home Premium that came with the unit, I was able to come out of suspend automatically when opening the lid.

Now, I have to press the power button to get the machine out of suspend. Could it be one of the power management drivers causing this problem? Is there a solution to it, or am I stuck like this?

Acer :: Opening The Travelmate 8100

Aug 22, 2007

The time has come, I have to do something with my Travelmate 8101. Pentium M 730 1,6GHz seems a bit slow, as I can get a Pentium M 770 2,13GHz relatively cheap. The problem is, I can't seem to get it open! Does anybody have any experience with opening/modifying the TM 8100?

And also, how big a difference would the new processor do compared to the old one? I'm also considering expanding the memory from 1GB to 2GB.

Dell Inspiron 15R :: DVD Drive Is Not Opening

Apr 11, 2013

I am using Dell inspiron 15R laptop. Suddenly my DVD drive is not opening. I have inserted a DVD which I think got corrupted and from then on my DVD drive is not opening. Unfortunately, I am not able to even eject the DVD out. Whenever I right-click on Drive (E) for ejecting it is taking a lot of time and system is getting struck. I wonder this laptop has got an eject button on the DVD drive, as I never got an opportunity to try that way.

HP/Compaq :: HELP --zd7005qv Wont Turn On

Dec 3, 2009

My HP zd7005qv laptop stopped turning on a little while back, and at first I thought it was a failed HDD. However, I also noticed that when I plug in the power cord, the lights would blink only for a brief moment then immediately go off. So I started fiddling with the cord and I got it in a position where the lights would complete their start-up blink, and when I tried to turn it on it actually started booting. But it stopped as soon as I moved the power cord again.

So I figured that the problem was a bad power jack.. it's pretty common from what I hear. I disassembled it, desoldered the power pin, and soldered a new one I bought off eBay. Now there is absolutely no problem with the power jack but the laptop still wont turn on. I'm afraid I may have screwed something else up while disassembling and reassembling the laptop.

When I press the power button, the lights at the top come on, I hear a light whining buzz and then all the lights shut off. I tried removing the RAM sticks, I even remove the HDD and the same thing happens no matter what. I tried turning it on with just the AC adapter, and I even let the battery charge a bit to try tuning it on with just the battery. I think I may have killed my processor..

HP/Compaq :: Pavilion DV2000. Won't Turn On

Aug 5, 2009

Laptop is a hp pavilion dv2000 laptop.

Went to turn on the laptop and walked away. A minute or two later come back and laptop is not past the BIOS, and a screen talking about a laptop being ran until the battery drained last time it was on. I didn't get a chance to finish reading the screen because the laptop restarted. Nothing shows up on the screen after the restart. I was running off the AC adapter when this happened.

Situation now is pressing the power button causes the power button, media quick play bar. Power notification light , light above mouse pad and the wireless slider to light up. If the AC adapter is plugged in the charge light will light as well.
I also hear a fan and i think the HDD. The HDD light doesn't light though. Nothing will show on the screen. stays black. I have tried powering it with AC adapter only, charged battery only, and with a charged battery and AC adapter.

Apple :: Snow Leopard - Opening Files In SL

Sep 26, 2009

Double-clicking files in the Finder under Snow Leopard launches applications associated with the types of the files regardless of which applications used to create those files. I like it but I can see why those users who have been using Mac for 2 decades hate it. Other than that it forces one to adopt a new habit, I think it makes sense both conceptually and practically to ignore creator codes for most users.

Apple :: .opening Encrypted Images In Windows

Jan 9, 2010

I'd like to encrypt my entire hard drive in this MBP. I use Time Machine, though -- and my understanding is that FileVault (a) is exploitable, and (b) requires that users be logged out for backups to occur. Both of those are big problems for me.

Behind that, the easiest way to encrypt things that really, truly should be protected somehow is to use Disk Utility to create a protected image, or such is my assumption. From what I understand, a .dmg can be converted to ISO within Windows (or opened with 7-zip). Is it at all possible for an encrypted .dmg to be converted/opened under Windows?

I ask because I'm not convinced I won't be on a Windows 7 notebook at some point, especially with updated HP Envy and Sony Vaio models coming. Could be wrong, but I like flexibility.

(I know that TrueCrypt serves a similar function to encrypted .dmg files via Disk Utility and is cross-platform, but still.)
