HP/Compaq :: Dead Harddrive

Mar 25, 2009

The 500GB HD in my DV7t just died. It's definitely dead, as I pulled it out and tested it in a caddy. When the computer goes to initialize the drive, it gets an error in the I/O device. I still believe I'm under my one year warranty from HP. Does it cover dead harddrives? And if so, do they require that I send in the dead drive? I work for a small business, though my boss has a rather strict data policy - all broken, dead, unused or outdated drives are to be turned into them for proper destruction prior to sale, refurbishment or replacement. Even when we send our laptops off for repairs, there are 'stock' harddrives we place in them that have never had sensitive company data on them. A bit paranoid, definitely, but it's company policy.

HP/Compaq :: Is It Possible To Run A DV9500 With The Harddrive In The 2nd Area

Sep 1, 2009

Looking at one drive, in both areas area 1 is always significantly hotter than area 2's. A 15 C increase.

Is it possible to set a single harddrive in the 2nd HDD area (farther away from the CPU and GPU that are causing all the heat), with the 1st area empty?

I tried simply moving it from area 1 to area 2, and it said it couldn't find the OS. Is there a way to fix this without reinstalling?

HP/Compaq :: New Harddrive On Dv 6263cl Laptop

Nov 7, 2009

My current harddrive for my hp dv 6263cl laptop need replacement, what size does it use 2.5" or 3.5"? On the hp website...Hp specs, it says it uses a SATA drive. So I bought this one from...Seagate internal harddrive. When I goto replace it, the connectors are different, the one I bought is like this...Seagate connectors, its a flat board and there is a rectangle usb size on the left seperate from the other ones. The hard drive connectors that came with the laptop looks like the seagate one except it's not flat, it's like a slot and it doesn't have the black covering on the bottom, like this...Pre-installed Harddrive connectors. Sorry I don't really know how to say it, but the new drive won't fit.

HP/Compaq :: Can Speed Of 2nd Harddrive In 6510b DVD-bay Be Improved

Apr 22, 2009

I've put an extra HD in a caddy delivered by newmodeus (converting SATA disk to the "PATA" connector in the DVD-bay in my 6510b - the harddrive is only able to read at 15 mb/s compared to the 100 MB/s when placed in the harddrive-bay (SATA).

Does anyone know if this is normal? is the the HP-connector or the chip in the caddy that is the bottleneck.... Any workarounds to improve the speed?

Ive tested both an intel x25M 80 gb and a Hitachi 7200 rpm 200GB in the caddy with the same slow performance...

HP/Compaq :: Volume Changing

May 22, 2010

Every time I change the volume on my notebook via keyboard shortcuts, a volume... "window" pops up and indicates how much i decrease or increase it. Problem is, that while I'm gaming or watching a movie, that indicator is always on top of any application i have opened, so it makes some games stutter, and if i accidentally click it, my game minimizes on the bar. Is there anyway to disable this feature on vista?

HP/Compaq :: Changing The Advance Boot Options In Msconfig

When changing the advance boot options in msconfig, I think I have found a bug. with the option of maximum memory selected, after the restart the computer will only read 3GB (when it should be 4GB). Also when going back in the advance menu of the boot tab, the maximum memory value is 0. (I also have no GUI boot selected, if that changes anything)

HP/Compaq :: Changing Graphics Card From Dv9000 To Dv6000

Jan 23, 2009

I bought a dv9000 about two years ago and recently the motherboard died. Since I'm not exactly rich at the moment I haven't bought a new laptop, but instead my father gave me his dv6286 because choose to upgrade.

But the geforce 7200 in the dv6268 isn’t any good for gaming, so I though if it was possible to take my geforce 7600 from the dv9000 and put it in the dv6286.

HP/Compaq :: Presario 1500

Apr 18, 2010

i have a compaq presario 1500 with a pentium 4 running XP SP3 on it. I am having trouble with keeping it under a good heat, the fan is constantly running high! i know this needs a good clean but the screws to remove the back casing are so small for me to do this! any suggestions of how i can clean inside? or get to th fan through the top by the keyboard?

secondly it tends to crash every now and then, maybe when it overclocks on the cpu?? i am recently trying out a program called speedswitchXP which seems to be slowing it down to an extent! but not solving the issue.

thirdly and finally, my battery only holds charge for around 10 minutes before needing constant wall plugin! i constantly have it plugged into the wall, could this be a result to any of my problems?

HP/Compaq :: Presario Won't Boot

Dec 3, 2009

got a Presario V2000 that will not boot whatsoever.

Upon pressing the power button, the machine starts up and displays the standard "Windows could not start properly" screen. Every option I choose, from the three Safe mode options, to the Last Known Good Config, to Start Windows Normally will not work.

I choose an option and everything goes smoothly, the Windows XP splash screen pops up & stays there for a few seconds, then goes blanks for a slightly longer length of time before a blue screen pops up. I can't remember the first few numbers, but the rest I'm pretty sure is accurate:

(a series of letters/numbers is here) (Registry File Failure)

The registry cannot load the file
SysCommandSysCom32ConfigSOFTware
or its log or alternate
It is corrupt, (something I cant remember), or not writable

Beginning dump of physical memory
Physical memory dump complete
Contact your system administrator or technical assistance.

.....and it pretty much repeats over and over in a continuous cycle like this until I power it off.

What I'm wondering is where exactly the problem lies? On the Hard Drive--where the drive itself needs to be replaced or the OS just wiped and reinstalled fresh.......or is this indicative of a hardware failure...which would mean this lappy is pretty much dead?

HP/Compaq :: Presario V6305NR

Apr 2, 2009

On pressing start button, laptop starts, but blank screen comes. After every few seconds, it keeps on rebooting, but nothing happens.

I have tried pressing F10 and Esc button on startup, but nothing happens.

Moving finger over multimedia touch buttons causes them to beep.

Few times, it shows the BIOS, but does not detect the hard-drive.

Very rarely, everything works fine and OS boots and works fine (without any sign of problem).

I replaced RAMs, hard-drive and DVD Reader in other laptop and there they worked absolutely fine.

I even tried removing the battery, connecting external monitor, keyboard, but nothing worked.

BIOS version is F.3D.
When opened, CPU fan and heatsink were dustfree.

Product Specs: HP Presario V6305NR, 1.6 GHz AMD Turion™ 64 X2 Dual-Core Mobile Technology TL-50, 1024MB DDR2 System Memory (2 Dimm), NVIDIA GeForce Go 6150 (UMA)

HP/Compaq :: Presario V2000 AC

Apr 15, 2009

I have a Presario V2000.

After not using for about 1 week I turned it on so I could clean it from viruses.

Got the battery alert and then it shutdown meanwhile I was pluging the cord in (Targus AC cord with

blue light).

When I connected the AC to the power (not connected yet to the laptop) it "turned on" and still today

shows a blue light. But once I plug it to the laptop the blue light disappears after 3-5 seconds!

Not at the beginning nor the end of this process the laptop will turn on if I press the power button

for 'x' seconds. If I plug the cord, the computer doesn't show any "power light" and then the blue

light from the Targus AC fades off.................

HP/Compaq :: HP G50 & G60- Presario Cq-50 &60 VS. C700

Jan 18, 2009

I am so much happier with this notebook than I was with my Presario C714NR.

Why;
Upgraded Intel GMA 4500M 768MB Max VRAM VS. 384MB on C700 GMA x3100
Upgraded support for 8GB Max Memory VS. 3GB with the C700 **Some G/CQ's can only handle 4GB
15.6" Screen not really a big deal from the 15.4" C700
HDMI Port VS. none on the C700
Media Card is standard in the G series.. VS. optional in C700 series.
Discrete Graphics offerings available for the G series and CQ-Series VS. integrated only C700
G/CQ offers shiny black top finish. C700 More grainy finish.
Better gaming performance, however, not really a gaming laptop.

HP has made some great improvements to the Compaq offering, however compaq will always lack some of the premium features like FingerPrint reader......

HP/Compaq :: LCD- Presario F700

May 8, 2010

just yesterday i started having a bit of trouble with my screen. when I open it to a full position so it is at optimum tilt for viewing, the colors become slightly washed out and whites gain a blueish tinge, while blacks have this sort of red static/noise behind them. However, when i tilt the screen to a very acute angle, the colors return to normal. I think it might be a connection that got a little loosened- i dropped my laptop onto a car floor a few days ago while on a trip.

HP/Compaq :: Presario C717NR Screen

Apr 15, 2010

if I opened the screen anymore than 4-5 inches, it would freeze half the screen and turn the over half into a complete jumbled mess. I ordered replacement screen about 2 months ago, and w/ me being lazy and all, it's been sitting on my office floor. I've been using the laptop daily, but instead it stays on my desk and is running through an Acer desktop monitor w/o any issues whatsoever.

So I brokedown and started installing the new screeen today, only to get this when I switched the output back over to the laptop:

It made an audible whining noise both times I switched over, so I quickly switched it off. At this point I'm wondering if the cable from the motherboard to the screen is the issue, but I don't wanna keep throwing parts at a computer this only cost me $250 brand new.

Also, when I finally get this figured out...I can't remember which plug this mic connector goes into.

It can either go here next to the keyboard cable or over here by the fan.

HP/Compaq :: Presario 2100 Locking Up

Mar 2, 2009

I have a Presario 2195U and it locks all the time. At first it seemed to do it at random, but then I noticed it would lock every time during installation of XP Service Pack 3, or other long laborious installations. Any time you hear the fan kick into overdrive it seems that it will lock up shortly after. It locked several times during the installation of Windows XP itself.

I hear the fan spinning, and I keep the system on a hard, flat surface to maximize airflow, but it will still lock up during larger-scale installations.

I ask if the issue could possibly stem from over-heating; the system reaches a certain temperature and locks as a fail-safe. I've also noticed that it will lock less frequently when the battery is removed. When I remove it, the battery is very warm, Perhaps the battery is absorbing some of the heat being produced in the system, contributing to the overall temperature inside the chassis?

I have since installed Ubuntu Linux on it and it locks MUCH less frequently, and from what I understand, Linux is much less CPU-intensive. I do like Linux, but it isn't suitable for what I use the system for.

If over-heating could be the issue, I'd like to purchase a better/more powerful fan, power draw isn't so much an issue as it's almost always plugged in.

The specifications for the system are:
CPU: AMD Athlon XP 1.8ghz
Memory: 1gb SDRAM
Graphics: ATI Radeon Mobile
HDD: 120gb
OS: Ubuntu 8.10

If the problem is indeed thermal-related, then comes the question of how do I open the chassis...

HP/Compaq :: My Presario Is Feeling Blue

May 2, 2009

I bought a Compaq Presario CQ60-211DX because it was cheap and I wanted a "backup" machine as I paid way too much for my MacBook to get "rough" with it (i.e. travel, put it in a full bookbag, take it to my school in a relatively high crime area, etc).

Well, basically you get what you pay for because this machine seems to run slower than molasses.

However, an annoying problem has popped up in that there seems to be a blue-streaked "tint" that started on pics and some video, that now exists on regular webpages as well. I haven't smashed the screen or spilled liquid on it. I have a 1 year warranty on it that's still good, but I'd rather try to fix it myself.

HP/Compaq :: Presario R4000- Window 7

If so, how could I install the drivers (VGA, network card, sound card and so on)? Should I just use Window XP drivers CD? I haven't tried with Window 7 RC 1 yet.

And for window 7, what's the difference between upgrade version and full version? Or is it the same if I have already window XP? I know only upgrade version is cheaper. Can I get clean installation with upgrade version? What about 32 bits and 64 bits, different CD or will it choose automatically?

HP/Compaq :: Presario C500 Drive

Feb 10, 2009

I've got an old C501NR with 80 GB HD that blue screened and died. Disk check indicated failed sectors. Wont boot into windows. Hp said its dead or dying. So I bought a 160 GB and Windows wont see any of it, neither does Bios. HP said it was too big, would only handle 120 GB so I ordered one of those, same speed/cache as the original. Same issue, its not found by Bios or Windows setup disc.

Here is the fun part: HP now says I can only use a certain part number which seems like total BS to me. Surethe 2 I tried were western digital and they come with Seagates, but so what? So if it isnt THAT that prevents me the puter from seeing the new drives, and that seems highly unlikely, what is it?? The drives are seating and connecting just fine.
