HP/Compaq :: What's The Maximum RAM Speed (Mhz) Can I Use In DV9700 Laptop

Oct 16, 2009

I have a HP DV9700 laptop that I bought about 1 and half year ago. The RAMS need to be replaced, and what's the maximum RAM speed (The Mhz, not the amount of GB) can I use in this laptop?

The old one was PC5300 667 Mhz 2 x 2GB RAM

Can I use PC6400 RAM? because It's more easily available than the old PC5300.

HP/Compaq :: Dv9700 - Reformatting C Drive, Laptop Wont Start

Sep 23, 2009

I recently caught a virus after accidentally typing faceboo k. cm instead of faceboo k. com in IE but Avast was able to take care of it. However, after restarting my HP laptop, I was unable to go into windows and it says there's a problem with startup or winload(I forgot). I used the repair startup 5 times, but to no avail. (I'm not sure if the virus is the cause of my problem).

So, I decided to use the Vista recovery DVDs and reformatted the C drive. I put the CD and HP automatically reformatted the windows partition of my drive. After it's done, the laptop was restarted and a dialog box that says "Software is being installed" appeared and there was a progress bar. But, it restarted again before the progress bar has a chance to complete. And after the laptop is restarted, the system says "BootMGR" is missing please restart using ctr alt del. After I restarted it again, a dialog box saying the recovery has failed appear. I tried this twice and failed both. The details of the error say something about QFE is missing or something.

FYI, the last time I used the Recovery cd I was brought to a blue screen (if I'm not wrong) where I can repartition, delete, or create partitions before formatting the drives. This time, I was unable to repartition or delete the drive, I was brought straight to reformating. And I was unable to use the Recovery Disk in the system; I pressed F11 and nothing happened.

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: Maximum Speed Of X240 Core I7-4600U Processor Only 2.69 GHz?

Jul 29, 2014

I bought a ThinkPad X240 recently.  On Lenovo's website, it says the max speed is 3.30 GHz.  However, in the Windows 8.1 Task Manager, it says the maximum speed is 2.69 GHz.  See [URL] ....
 
Why there is a discrepancy?  I also tried running Prime 95 for a little while and noticed that the "Speed" in Task Manager never went above 2.70 GHz.  Did I somehow get a weird i7-4600U processor that has a max speed of only 2.7 GHz?

Dell Inspiron 5720 :: Wireless Network Speed Is Slower Than Maximum In Windows 7

Mar 5, 2013

I have a Dell Inspirion 5520 that has Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless-N 2230 built in.Also I have a TP link TL-WR740N wireless router.I have an 80Mbps/25MBps internet connection.My Speedtest result with no router:When I connect all these via an Ethernet cable, I get the maximum even through the router:But when I try to do the same with WiFi I get 30/20 Maximum speed, and I'm sitting next to router!I have this configuration:*router:* -

Channel: auto - Mode: 11n only - Channel width: 40Mhz - Max Tx rate: 150Mbps - Enabled Wireless Router Radio - Enabled SSID Broadcast - Security: WPA- AES - Beacon Interval : 100 - RTS Threshold: 2346 - Fragmentation Threshold: 2346 - DTIM Interval: 1 - Enabled WMM - Enabled Short GI *Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless-N 2230:* - 802.11n Channel width for band 2.4 : Auto - 802.11n Mode: enabled - Ad Hoc Channel 802.11b/g: 1 - Ad Hoc QoS Mode: WMM enabled - Bluetooth(R) AMP: Enabled - Fat Channel Intolerant: Disabled - Mixed Mode Protection: CTS-to-self Enabled- Roaming Aggressiveness: 3.

do get the fact that speed through wireless is slower than with wire, but losing 50Mbps is a bit too much!

Dell Studio 1535 :: Fan Runs At Maximum Speed When Control Media Panel Plugged In

Jan 12, 2015

I have changed my dell studio 1535 motherboard after ordering a refurbished one from dell. When reconnecting all the parts, everything worked well except the control media button <Previous Track> which was lighting up by itself from time to time.

I unplugged the media control panel, plugged it up again. This time the media panel is lighting up intermittently and the laptop cooler is at maximum. Unplugged again, a cable pin was short circuited and got broken in the process :(.

Fixed the cable, now the media control panel is completely down and the cooler runs at maximum speed. Removing the media panel fixes the cooler issue.

As I am not an expert into this, I was wondering if changing the panel will fix my problem or the faulty connection could have broken the motherboard control panel circuit.

PS. When running diagnostic via F12 key, no faulty issue is detected.

HP/Compaq :: Dv9700...no Backlight

Nov 27, 2009

I have a dv9700 that I have owned for over a year and recently upgraded to Windows 7 (about a month ago.) I was happy with how everything was working until suddenly today when I went to turn on my laptop it appeared the screen was dead...upon looking closer I realized that the backlight was off. I could barely make out anything on the screen but it did have an error message stating that Windows failed to boot and gave the option of repairing the system. I went through this "startup repair" utility (still no working backlight) and got my computer to boot up. Everything seems to run normally now except the backlight is still not functioning most of the time (at the moment I have the screen balanced just right so that it is on.) I had a similar problem with my screen about half a year ago but the laptop was still under warranty at the time so HP replaced the screen for free...not the case this time unfortunately I seem to remember reading that flashing the BIOS can solve a problem like this, however there is apparently no support for Windows 7 through HP Support's software and drivers page (I tried installing the latest version of winflash for my laptop...vista 64 bit but got an error message saying it was not compatible with my system)

HP/Compaq :: DV9700 Died

Sep 6, 2009

So My DV9700 has died. I've read MANY threads across the internet about this issue as well as there being a suit against nvidia for bad chips.
Of course my laptop is out of warranty which leaves me with an interesting option. Rather than paying HP to fix it and waiting weeks for the laptop to be returned I'm doing it myself. Not a problem except for needing the parts.

I spent most of the afternoon searching google with no luck but maybe someone here has a parts catalog with the answer. Other than crossing my fingers that an oem replacement board will survive is there an aftermarket option or a company that sells a modified board with extra heat sinks or something?

HP/Compaq :: DV9700 Backlight Works For 2 Sec, Then Goes Out

Jan 28, 2010

I am having some strange problems with the backlight on my dv9700...I started a thread about this maybe 2 months ago but the backlight for whatever reason started working again and I didn't have too many issues with it until recently. Lately the backlight has only been working when it is plugged in...If I unplug it but leave the lid open it still works but as soon as I close the lid and open it again its out until I plug it back in and open and close the lid. Now I can't get the backlight to work at all except it lights up for 2 seconds or so upon closing and opening the lid. I removed the display bezel to access the display inverter and check for any loose or damaged connectors but they all appear to be fine...unplugging and plugging the display panel cable connector back in also causes the backlight to work for 2 seconds and then go out again. Besides the backlight issue the laptop seems to be working perfectly fine...can anyone help me figure this out? I should mention that I upgraded this laptop to Windows 7 right away when it was released.

HP/Compaq :: DV9700 Bios Restore

May 4, 2009

There was an update for F.58 bios on hp's driver site. It was F.59.A
Well I used the win flash utility and the program verified my bios and went with the update. All good until the pc shut off. The quick lauch row of buttons along with the power button were on, the fan going full speed and the little light next to the caps lock button was flashing on and off. I gave it about 5 min and noticed nothing was progressing. So I tried holding down the power button to force it off and all it did was reset the lights and came right back on. I couldn't even get it to shut down without removing the battery.

So I tried the suggestion of pulling the battery out, holding the power button down for 30 sec and plug everything back it....nope. soon as I put the battery in it automatically turns the pc on, don't even have to push the start button.

I'm guessing this had something to do with a bad bios update and if so is there another way to get it back to default bios. I talked to HP chat.....what a nightmare....and it took me 30 min to tell who ever that i couldnt shut down the pc or get into setup when the guy kept repeating "Once you see hp logo hit F10...." um ....I can't get to that rtard that's what i've been telling you as you read you card in front of you. Then told me it would be 400 bucks to have it picked up and fixed...ya right for a bad update caused by hp in the first place.

HP/Compaq :: HP Dv9700 Rebooting Even Before Booting BIOS

May 31, 2010

I have a problem with my dv9700. When I try to turn it on, it lights up in the small blue LED's, but then reboots even before I see the BIOS booting, this it keeps on doing again and again.

I've come to the conclusion that it's some kind of hardware failure, but exactly which one it is, I don't know. I tried switching out the RAM but with no luck.
Anyone here have a suggestion to what to do?

I have A LOT of very important data on the PC and I off cause have taken backups, but not recently.

HP/Compaq :: DV9700- Why Do I Keep Hearing This Loud Bell

Why Do I Keep Hearing This Loud Bell

I keep hearing this loud bell at 8 am and 8 pm.

I am running WindowsVista on an HP Pavillion DV9700
laptop.

Is this a software or hardware issue and how do I turn the darn thing off? It's so loud that if I'm concentrating on something else it's startles the heck out of everyone in the room.

HP/Compaq :: Connecting External Monitor To DV9700

Mar 24, 2009

how to get an external monitor working with a HP DV9700 laptop? The screen is cracked and it's totally white, so I'm unable to do anything through the BIOS, desktop, etc.

I've tried Fn-f4 and every other f button combination.

The laptop is plugged into the mains, so there should be sufficient power for an external monitor.

I've also re-booted the laptop with the monitor connected and switched on.

There is no option to switch on the laptop with the lid closed, due to the position of the on-off switch.

The laptop is not networked, so I can't access the hard drive any other way.

I try it without the battery (not sure why?), but that didn't work either.

Dell XPS 15 :: Laptop Won't Reach To Maximum Brightness

Dec 29, 2014

Just received my new xps 15 touch 9530 and have been using it for about a week.  I was starting up the laptop and plugged it in during the startup sequence because it was very low on battery.  Ever since this the laptop will not reach its full brightness.  When i use the function keys to adjust it the bottom half of the brightness bar does nothing meaning the max value is not reached.  This also happens under power and control panel brightness options.

HP Pavilion 15-n278sa :: Maximum Temperatures For Various Components In Laptop

Jan 14, 2015

Is there anywhere I can confirm the maximum  recommended temperatures for various components in my laptop?
 
I'm running CPUID HWMonitor after just having bought a chill pad but I'm not sure if the "max temperature" values are being read from my machine or are just arbitrary.
 
Also, am I correct that you can't read the fan speed on this model with any kind of diagnostic or monitoring  app?

HP Pavilion Dv6 Audio :: Laptop Volume Is Very Low Even With Setting At Maximum

Aug 15, 2012

I have tried every setting available on this laptop, from all set to default to trying multiple changes in all the settings. The volume is consistently low and has a very annoying reverb and echo effect, even with those settings turned off. I have only had it for a week, and I have been very pleased with everything else accept the audio. The reason for purchasing this model was for multi-media processing and so far I and becoming more disgusted daily with it. It is a Pavilion dv6 and it has the beat audio software.

Lenovo B / G Series :: How To Speed Up G505 Laptop

My laptop G505 59379534 has become horribly slow. In fact it is so right from beginning when I purchased six months back. Around 50 GB of data consisting of audio, video files are stored in it. It takes atleast 2 to 3 minutes to open even a small file of 5 Mb size. Also I have installed all latest drivers from AMD site. Also I am using Kapersky internet security 2014 and it is up to date. No virus or spyware is detected when I run full scan. Can I improve it's speed and if so how.

HP/Compaq :: DV4 & 5t Speed

Jan 7, 2009

I bought a pretty basic DV4t for my daughter for Christmas. Did a fresh Vista 32 install and everything is working nicely as advertised. However, when I check through CPU-Z (v1.49) it only indicates a down clock to 1595Mhz. The Vista CPU meter gadget though shows one processor at or near 0 at idle with the second at about 28%. I also have a DV2700tv in the house, also with a fresh Vista install, and it down clocks to 800Mhz.

CTO Specs are:
DV4t, P7350, 4GB ram, 160GB HD, Webcam, 802.11n w/Bluetooth, Lightscribe,12 Cell, BIOS F.24 (factory).

Unlike AMD systems, my understanding is that there is no driver required like there is for AMD Cool-n Quiet and that the speed steps are initiated between the BIOS and the OS with the correct chip-set drivers installed. My thoughts are that either:

(1) There is a problem with the BIOS F.24
(2) There is a problem with CPU-Z and this config
(3) The is a problem with the processor
(4) Or the P7350 doesnt down clock like the T8100 that is in the DV2700tv

I re-installed the chipset drivers just to make sure all was correct. Device manager is clear and no problems there. I checked Intel and the P7350 supports "Enhanced Speedsteps" and it at least is down clocking from 2Ghz to 1595Mhz. Ive also searched the forums and no luck there either.

HP/Compaq :: Speed Up PC With ReadyBoost

Apr 25, 2010

I just found out about ReadyBoost. I have a 2 gig that it can use.. Has anyone tried this.. does it do more than just prefetch?

Again, I am reading a LOT of great things about using the exFat file system on your Flash drives with ReadyBoost.. anyone tried this?

You see, my thinking is I have a CQ61 with 2 gigs of ram and on board video with 128 ram shared up to 1 gig. Windows needs a gig and the games need a gig. At some point memory should get sluggish and effect either windows performance, the running game, or both.

I am trying to minimize the processes and services windows runs, and leave more available Ram for the games to make them run as best possible. The ReadyBoost thing is just one trick I am trying to do this as well as disabling tons of unwanted processes and services using tools like Autoruns by Sysinternals, Smart Utility by TheWindowsClub and IoBit's GameBooster.

(I do plan on getting more ram when I can afford it but this is just a temp measure)

Also your thoughts.. isn't a USB Flash drive faster than your hard drive? if so, why not use one for your page file? If that works.. wouldn't that be better to help out those times when you run low on ram?

Also, what do you think of using a ram drive with a USB drive to simulate extra ram in general? (Like with Ramdisk)
