HP/Compaq :: Brand New HDX18t With Bad Hinge Panel

Sep 12, 2009

I just received my HDX18t yesterday and noticed that the upper and lower hinge cover does not fit together. In fact it looks like the factory pried it back open - look at attached photo. I called the HDX support line who transferred my to sales who transferred me back to the HDX support line just to find out that I have to send in my laptop to get it fixed in stead of them just sending me the part. The problem is only cosmetic so I don't want to have to send my new computer away for several weeks! Has anyone had a similar experience? Do you think if I talk to the right person at HP they'll just send me the part?

Acer :: Confusing Aspire Model/sub Model Numbers

Mar 5, 2009

I'm trying to find info on an aspire... Not the model # itself as that is not the problem, but the sub model#...

The model is Acer Aspire 8930G, but the sub model # is 6963 and that is where my research seems to go dry... Does anyone have info on this sub model #?

Also i might ask is how user friendly is the 8930G for upgrades as for the processor and video? The current processor is the T5800 with the 9600m nvidia... Would it make sense to upgrade and what is the potential of this 8930G with the T5800?

HP/Compaq :: Brand NewDV6t Quad Edition Core I7-720QM

Mar 1, 2010

I am selling a VERY, VERY Brand New DV6t Quad Edition Core i7-720QM. The notebook has only been opened and turned on to ensure everything is working. This is a CTO (Customized to order) from HP. This is NOT a refurbished notebook. It is very, very Brand New.

Specifications I've listed below.

I also just recieved this notebook from FED-EX last Wednesday, February 24th 2010.
Notebook also comes with a 2 Year Accidental Damage Protection Warranty (Began on 02/24/10 - Expires on 02/24/2012)

My Reason for selling: The standard 1366x768 resolution in every notebook (including this one) is just way too low for me. I am accustomed to using a 1920x1080P resolution. I am simply selling it to buy a notebook with a 1080P resolution.

HP/Compaq :: Huge Crack Where The Screen Connects To The Laptop HDX16 Brand New Out Of Box

Dec 2, 2009

I recently had an HDX16 and tried out a DM3, but ended up returning the DM3 because I simply wanted a bigger and more powerful setup. Well, I had gone through 3 previous HDX16s because of various issues. Now I get one of the last ones they made (I got it about a week ago but was out of town for Thanksgiving.) Anyways, there's a huge crack in the plastic on the long roundish bar that connects the screen to the laptop. I don't know what to do. I can call, but they can't even send out another replacement, as the 16 doesn't exist anymore. To me the DV6/7/8 series isn't even comparable in my mind. What does everyone think I should do? I get the feeling they'll offer me say $50 which isn't worth the crack. I mean to me $200 is about where I'd say I'd be okay. But even then, I'll use it every day and think of the crack.....

Dell :: SSDs In XPS M1530

Jan 26, 2009

I recently purchased a brand spanking new, fresh off the press, newborn baby of an XPS M1530 with the 256 GB SSD.

I used the 25% off coupon, so I basically got it for free along with the four year warranty and four year accident protection.

The question I have is: what kind of SSDs are they using? Are the drives Dell uses proprietary as a previous thread asked (which I seriously doubt they are), or are they OCZ, Intel, Toshiba, etc.?

Dell :: Why Are The SSDs So (relatively) Cheap

May 24, 2009

Dell M1730: 320gb 7200rpm to 128gb SSD is $100, and to RAID 256gb ssd (128x128) is $300

HP HDX 18t 320gb 7200rpm to 160 gb SSD + 500gb 5400rpm (who wants that?) is $600.

Sony AW: 320gb 7200rpm to 64gb SSD + 500gb 4200rpm (!) is $420.

Are the SSD's that the Dells use worse quality or something? I really want an SSD with my next laptop, and I'm leaning towards HP or Sony because I think I want an 18.4 inch model, but it really, really surprises me that the Dell SSDs are so much cheaper. Anyone have an explanation, or am I missing something obvious?

Sony :: ExpressCard SSDs For New Vaio Z

Apr 28, 2010

As a proud Vaio Z owner (and at the same time a poorly payed PhD student), I opted for the cheap Z with the 128GB SSD and I am already almost at full capacity.

I am looking for someway to expand my available storage. SD cards would be one option but high capacity ones are expensive, read/write speeds are not that good and I have had reliability issues with most removable media I've used in the past so I would not want to put my work-critical files on them.

I have come across these expressCard based SSD drives:

Amazon.com: Wintec FileMate 48GB Ultra ExpressCard Solid State Drive 3FMS4D48M-WR - PCI-e, Mini USB 2.0: Electronics

that seem to provide relatively good performance. However they seem a bit unreliable from the reviews, so I am still not particularly keen on getting one.

Has anyone come across any viable alternatives to the above drives?

HP/Compaq :: Which Model For Streaming Flash Video

May 12, 2009

Looking to pick up a notebook for almost the sole purpose of hooking up to an HDTV over HDMI and watching online streaming video. I was looking at the dv2z but the slower processor was a concern for Flash-based video and other processor intensive streaming video. Am I safe going with the dv2z, or should I be looking at the dv3z? Or even the dv4t? All three seem to be in the same approximate price range. More compact is better, but acceptable performance is most important.

HP/Compaq :: New Hard-drive For Mydv9000 Laptop9605 Ea Model

Nov 11, 2009

think the hard-drive on my dv9605ea laptop is failing. Can someone suggest me a reliable, value for money hard-drive? I'm looking at a minimum of 300 odd GB.

my original hard-drive seems to be from the Hitachi Travelstar 5K250 line.

Also, out of interest... as far as I understand most hard-drives come with a roughly 3 years warranty. Since my laptop is less than 2 yrs. old, is it likely the the hard-drive be covered by its manufacturer (Hitachi rather than HP)?

Dell :: M6400 Component UpgradesOpinions Sought, SSDs

Dec 11, 2008

m6400 with a single 200gb HD which is not really enough space.

At the moment I am trying to decide between doing one of the following

1. Buy 2x320gb 7200 WD drives and raid 0 them up WD 320 : 66.69 * 2 = COST 134 GBP approx Total Space 640 Gb

2. Buy 1 320 hdd and 1 60 gb SSD to boot off SSD : 137.99 + WD 320 : 66.69 = COST 205 GBP Total Space = 380 GB

3. Buy 1 320 hdd and keep the 200 gb drive its coming with
COST 67 GBP - Total Space = 520 GB

I would like it to be quick (obviously)

Does anyone know how a single SSD compares to twin 7200 hdds in raid 0 ? (approx)

The SSD I would probably buy is the OCZ "solid series" (read "budget series") but it still appears to be quick at least according to the OCZ site, I couldnt find any actual reviews of it because I think its too new (its the red coloured one).

Im a little afraid of the risks involved with raid 0 plus the fact that I couldnt just swap out one of the drives without loosing the array.

Maybe a single 7200 is ok. Has anyone any experiance with this SSD?

Also second thing

I am also thinking of buying some more RAM - the 2 brands I am looking at are OCZ and G.Skill

They are both identically priced and the only 2gb dimms for ddr3 that the shop I am looking at stocks.

HP/Compaq :: HP Mini 2140 Vs Mini 1000 (10" Model)

Jan 21, 2009

I'm trying to figure out the difference between the two other than the casing (one's metal and one's plastic). The 2140 uses a SATA connector vs a PATA connector. So for $25 extra(lowest config 2140 vs highest config 1000) you get a metal case and SATA connector?

Why would anyone buy the 1000? Am I missing something? Oh and the 2140 has a higher volatage adapter for 'fast charging'...what's left for the 1000?

Acer :: Cannot Get WMP 11 To Run On Brand New 6935G

May 22, 2009

After reading great reviews about it, I took the plunge and bought the 6935G last week.

Its a fantastic machine and I'm really delighted with it apart from one major problem - I can't get Windows Media Player 11 to run at all.

The installation of Vista SP1 appeared to go well and the machine seems to be operating perfectly in all other ways (apart from the sidebar not displaying gadgets properly which does not bother me much).

I can see WMP included in the list of programs when I click on the start menu and I can also see it in my "C" drive under Program Files but when I attempt to run it nothing at all happens. The blue circle appears for 1 or 2 seconds then disappears - thats all that happens.

I'm not sure if this is related but when I go to the Music section of Windows Media Center I get the message "A necessary component of Windows Media Center is currently not available "

As I'm a "silver surfer" with limited computer knowledge, I'm probably doing something stupid (or maybe forgettiing to enable something) but I would really appreciate help in getting WMP 11 to work on this otherwise fantastic machine.

As I use WMP to manage my music, its important to me.

Sony :: Brand New TT- OS Not Found

Feb 14, 2009

I've just received my VGN TTWN/B two days ago. It has Vista Business installed by default and I've been going through the guide page by page to ensure everything's just right as I set it up. It's just fab!

Tonight I opened the power icon on the tooltray when the machine was connected to the mains (window showed: connected. Not charging. 80% charged) and proceeded to the lid/button power functions. Here, I found four boxes, two for AC functionality and two for battery. All four boxes were set to 'sleep'. To experiment, I changed one - the AC lid function to 'hibernate'.

I then closed the lid and returned a while later. By now the screen was black, but the power indicator (on/off button) was still lit green. I attempted to restart using the return key. Nothing happened and several minutes later, I decided to hold in the power on/off button for 5 seconds to try to shut the machine down and restart.

It didn't shut down, and once more I repeated trying to unhibernate using the return key, except this time, up came the phrase: 'Operating system not found.' I used various keys and the same message came up again and again.

Now the machine has been sitting there, black screen and with this message. It's disconnected from the AC and the on/off is still lit green.

I have been tempted to remove the battery and replace it, and start again, but this is where I run out of talent. I don't want to do anything to the TT which will screw it up.

System restore discs were made at the very outset.

Dell :: Network Adapter Brand New

Jun 18, 2008

I bought a new Dell D830 about three days ago for school. I connected to my schools wireless network just fine, and I did this for about two days until I headed back home.

Here we have a wired network and it even worked fine here for about a day. Now I cannot seem to connect to anything here.

I checked the modem, different cables, and I tried to run through the repair option but I still got the same message, 'There might be a problem with one or more network adapters on this computer'. I do have Vista on the computer but besides that the only things Ive loaded are Trend Micro and Mozilla.

Will it effect both wired and wireless networks on this computer?

Dell :: M1330: Brand New MB, Now Won't Charge

Jun 1, 2009

Dell tech came out to replace my motherboard for the second time in 12 months earlier this week and left the wrong ac adapter (didnt notice until after well after he left).

So dell shipped me another ac brick which arrived today, but the laptop still isnt recognizing it. The battery is completely dead now, but before it went down I checked in BIOS and it was showing no AC adapter there either. It's getting power from the wall (green light is on) but I dont have a multimeter handy to check the voltage from the brick to the computer.

The light doesnt go out when I plug it into the computer like it did when the MB died. What are the chances it's a faulty adapter or do I have another problem? Anybody else had this happen? I'm getting really frustrated with this machine. TIA guys.
