While other HP models are getting sold with Windows 7, HP only has two dv2z models pre configured with Vista! I wanted one of these decked out with Win 7!

HP/Compaq :: DV2Z Or DV3T
Im looking to get myself a smaller laptop to take around with me. I have at home a g50v right now and love it but it’s just too big to take with me everywhere. I like both of these laptops but can’t decide which one I like better. I see some were saying that they had a 30% coupon for the dv3t which would make it the same price or less as the dv2z.
HP/Compaq :: Dv2z Good Enough For Photoshop
I am seriously considering buying DV2 with following configuration:
MD Athlon™ Neo Processor for Ultrathin Notebooks MV-404096MB DDR2 System Memory (1 Dimm)320GB (5400RPM) Hard Drive (SATA), SuperMulti 8x DVD+-R/RW DriveGenuine Windows Vista® Home Premium 64-bit with Service Pack 112.1" Diagonal WXGA High-Definition (8) HP LED BrightView Widescreen Display (1280 x 800), ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 3410 Graphics
90% of my PC use would be internet browsing, photoshop elements editing and rarely watching some normal dvd movies.
Will this configuration be good enough for this, or I *must* consider dual core.
HP/Compaq :: Upgrading Dv2 To Dv2z
The idea is to replace dv2's MV-40 CPU with newer AMD Athlon(TM) Neo X2 (L335) or AMD Turion(TM) Neo X2 (L625). Any thoughts on this?
The questions are:
1) do dv2 and dv2z have the same motherboards?
2) how complicated would it be to replace CPU in a dv2?
3) is it worth it?

HP/Compaq :: Looking For New OS
Ive just about had it with Vista on my laptop and want to try a new OS before I junk this thing. Is anyone running Win7 or Ubuntu on a HP DV5z AMD 64 bit laptop? The machine is about a year old and I have 4gb of RAM and the thing is a dog. Ive used Ubuntu in the past on Dell laptops and its a pain to get everything running wireless drivers, flash, etc. Win7 being a RC may or may not have everything up to speed on for my machine.
So, if you have Win7 or Ubuntu on a HP DV5z please give me a shout, good or bad.
HP/Compaq :: 16:9 Vs 16:10
I realize a lot of people are not happy losing the vertical space with 16:9.
But wasen;t this the case when we originally moved to widescreen. E.g. with 14" laptops the high-res displays used to SXGA+ which when they became WXGA+ we lost some vertical resolution.
HP/Compaq :: Dv2410us
I am currently using a dv2410us laptop. i was wondering if i could use the parts in it (probably just ram and HD) to make a new one. I would like to have a gaming laptop, because the dv2410us cant really keep up with even counter strike. Are there barebone laptops (with a good gfx card) that would be able to use the parts of my old laptop?
HP/Compaq :: HP NC6220
So I've just purchased this laptop for a descent deal as a secondary/field laptop. Looking to do some minor upgrades on it to give it a little more speed; RAM, CPU and hard drive.
It comes with the Mobile Intel 915GM Express Chipset and I'm curious to know if this model laptop is capable of the famous pin mod. If so, looks like I will be purchasing a cheap 1.6Ghz CPU for a pinmod.
Also does anyone know the largest, Hitachi 7200RPM PATA hard drive? Was it 100GB?
HP/Compaq :: Overheating HP
I have sent my laptop off 3 times to HP to have it repaired and its just came back and is running at 197.6 degrees when playing 720p videos. It got hot enough to char a piece of paper that was sitting next to it on my desk, almost starting a fire if I wasn't there.
The kicker is this laptop was given to me by hp a year and a half ago as a replacement for another overheating laptop. I am now told they don't replace laptops. So I cant call up my credit card company and say I received a lemon, or go back to the store and say you sold me a lemon, as it was given to me by HP.
The case managers have been EXTREMELY rude. Essentially calling me stupid and that im not qualified to diagnose the computer, even though Im a computer technician by trade and have been building computers since I was 9 years old.
IS my only options small claims court? is there anyway to get ahold of anyone higher than their case managers? they claim there isnt. Is there a way to get ahold of the board or ceo?
HP/Compaq :: Dv 6568SE
I have a Dv6568 for a little big over a year now. However, now I seem to be having a few problems with it. First the battery. After charging it too 100% the laptop only seems to last 20 minutes or so. The meter is is fine from around 100- 80 or so but after that it usually drops instantly to 6 and shuts off. I have tried calibrating it with the instructions from the hp site but no change. Another problem I'm having is with the heat. It seems to be really hot on the left palm rest area. It has the 8400M GS so I have a feeling it might be this. However HP didn't list the dv65XX models as ones with defective GPU's.

HP/Compaq :: ChoppyWebcam
I have a HP Pavilion dv5-1138tx. YouCam was recording nice and smooth videos for me when I first got the unit but now when I record it's like it's playing at 15fps or less. I've not changed any settings so I'm wondering does anyone know how to fix it up or is there alternative software I can use to record that does a better job?
HP/Compaq :: Qvcinventory
After the hp dv5t was removed from their website yesterday as a configurable laptop QVC has listed 9 new hp offereings. None are the dv5t but it does seem as if hp is pushing every size except the 15.4 inch. They have 16, 17, the new minis and a 15.6 compaqs.
HP/Compaq :: Hp DV2000
I have a HP DV2000 and recently it would not boot up. It gets to the windows screen and then rebots itself. Upon trying to reinstall the windows OS I got into the bios to see that the hard drive can't be detected.
problem can be my hard drive or my motherboard. The computer is out of warranty and my question is how can I be able to diagnose the what the exact problem is? Should I just buy a new hard drive and try that or is there anything I can do in the bios to further diagnose the problem??
1720-S.M.A.R.T Hard drive detects imminent failure Please backip the contents of the hard drive and run HDD self test in f10
HP/Compaq :: Overheat

HP/Compaq :: CQ-50 W7 Camera
So i just reformatted this PC and loaded, W7 on it but im having a horrible time with the cam, the image appears dark now when before it was a much clearer image even in low lights.
The Cyberlink You Cam software that came with it, was ok so i re-dowloaded that again but im still having issues the lighting is very poor.
low lighting conditions or bad drivers cause this did not happen until i reformatted the thing. I really don't want to go back to VISTA
HP/Compaq :: How To OC This CPU
Does anyone have a good way to OC this laptop other than using ClockGen? I am basically wondering if there is a BIOS option. I know there are some OC guides out there, but this laptop is almost 3 years old, and as far as I can tell does not have an option in the BIOS. Also, my proc is the T2600, not the one is this review, but other than that exactly the same. I am looking to play around with this because it is old and I dont care too much if I fry it since my new hotness is on the way.
HP/Compaq :: MediaSmart Gone
My MediaSmart just stopped working. I have tried system restore to a point where I knew they worked. I have redownloaded the updates from HP for MediaSmart, Quicklaunch, and BIOS. None of those made a difference. I just continue getting the error -
"HP MediaSmart SmartMenu has stopped working A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available"
Of course - HP does not offer the full software anywhere I can find.
HP/Compaq :: My HDX18
I bought my HP HDX X18T-1200 CTO approx. 6 months ago and it was installed Vista on it. I upgraded it to W7 (clean install, of course) and I think W7 is a great OS, and way better than Vista. But, as i remember, ever since i started using W7, my problems with this laptop started too. Generally, my laptop has 4 main problems:
1. My eject button and bass/treble slider aren't working! I've read a lot of users are complaining about this issue but some of them say they can make it work. I'm wondering how they do it (and how can i do it, of course ).
2. When I install MediaSmart, QuickPlay, Tone Control (or whatever they are called) program that has volume/bass/treble indicator, it doesn't work properly and keeps popping up (especially it happens when I close the laptop's cover or wake up the computer from the hibernate mode). So I deleted all the software related with this. When it pops up, my bass/treble sliders (but not the volume slider) are malfunctioning, too, bass and treble levels just keeps increasing and decreasing, increasing and decreasing, increasing and decreasing...
3. My remote control buttons doesn't work at all. I think it's a software-related issue (because it was working a few months ago, my remote control and its batteries are okay too). As I said, Currently I have nothing which is related with QuickPlay, MediaSmart etc. installed on my computer, i think that's the problem. Which program(s) should I install?
4. The issue that annoys me the most is, sometimes (it happens especially when I close the laptop's cover or wake up the computer from the hibernate mode, too) my touchpad enhancements doesn't work, it can't even recognise my taps! At first, I thought it's a touchpad-related issue. But one day, when I can't use the enhancements, I turned on a key grabber software (the software which shows the key codes) and I see the codes of bass and treble slider's buttons! The computer thinks I press the bass/treble slider's buttons constantly bu I don't even touch them!
HP/Compaq :: HP Quicktouch (XP)
I've got a HP Pavillion dv6113us, running Windows XP Media Center Edition.
2 days ago, I upgaded to Windows XP Service Pack 3 and .NET Framework 3.5. After the upgrade, I had a few problems with my Quicklaunch AND Quicktouch.
1. When I clicked on the Quickplay button, Quickplay would not open. (This was resolved after I talked to HP, and they made me download a Quicklaunch driver for my dv6113us. It's working fine)
2. The Volume Level Bar OSD does not appear. The volume does change accordingly if I run my fingers across the button, but I can't see the light green OSD which appears at the bottom of the screen.
I again talked to HP, and they told me to download the Quicktouch driver for the Compaq Presario B2000 series. This works, but it's unfortunately not my ORIGINAL volume level bar. It's a compressed version, and I can barely see it, the colors are too light. I prefer my old volume level bar OSD, which came originally with my HP dv6113us.
HP/Compaq :: DV 9605 EA
my close to 2 yr old HP DV 9605 EA has been giving me problems recently.
1. Firstly I have a problem while starting it up after it has been shut down for a while.
I have to power up and power down a few times before anything comes up on the screen.
When something does come up on screen, it offers me an option to repair start-up. But if I choose it, it eventually gives up and says it can't be repaired.
2. Also, I've been having problems with my DVD RW drive. Windows basically seems to fail to recognise it.
I read somewhere that I should try and re-install drivers by deleting the driver for the DVD drive in devide manager, which causes Windows to automatically find drivers for the drive and reinstall them.
On trying this, I was able to play an audio CD on it for a while. But after say 5 mins. it stopped recognising the drive again.
HP/Compaq :: Bestbuy Vs HP
So getting the Envy 15 @ BB and off HP is pretty much the exact same right? Except from HP you get to customize it.
But BB might have the credit card special of no payment for 12 months and at the BB reward points at the same time..
HP/Compaq :: HP F.16 Bios
a download link for this bios? Every site I have visited linked to HP's download site, which then opens up an empty ftp page. A mirror would be appreciated. The file's name is supposed to be "sp34782.exe".
HP/Compaq :: Envy15
Is it easy to add RAM and change the HD?
For $1450, is this a good deal? I'd really like an internal Blu-ray drive, but that's not possible. I have a spare SSD I can swap in and I'd buy more RAM off of newegg.

My m15x had hinge issues and my M17x had stuttering issues, so what can I expect from the ENVY 15?
HP/Compaq :: Envy 14 Or 15
I'm shopping for laptops right now and I'm pretty much stuck between these two. My main question for the 14 is will it be able to do full hd? I know 1920x1080 is a bit much to ask for on a 14.5" screen but I haven't been able to find a solid answer for this question. The 14 has more features and the internal cd drive is a plus, but not a dealbreaker for the 15 since the cd drive isn't used too much. Taking out price, which one would be a better buy?
HP/Compaq :: Hp And Voodoo
hp bought out voodoo, and i was hoping for greater things with voodoo...what happen?voodoo is now allmost non-existent. only one desktop...and one 13 inch lappy...why did hp choose to de-gut this once high-end system builder....hp really does not really have high end lappys now,got to go to 3rd party system builders...ibuypower, cycbergear, extreme systems.....luck for dell...they stole from alienware for its high end systems.
HP/Compaq :: HP Getting Complicated
If everyone hasent noticed, HP is getting a little complicated with thier notebooks.
Mini 1000 (XP)
Mini Mi (Linux)
Mini Vivienne Tam Edition (Different color and no 8.9" option)
Now, why dont they have one, with a Linux and XP option. As well as a color option?
Compaq CQ60Z, dv5t, dv5z, dv6t, dv G60t, and dv5t Special Edition.
Now, tell me that isnt too much! The page is so crowded! And all are very similar!
dv4t, dv4z, dv3z, dv4t Special Edition, AND Touchsmart tx2z...............

HP/Compaq :: HP Dv7t
Here is the setup.
I have a few questions that I need clarification on.
First, is 64-bit ok to get. I've read a lot of articles stating that not many things are 64-bit and that drivers are hard to find, and so on. I believe these articles are a little old but I would like to make sure program running and such is ok.
Second, there are so many processors to pick from. You have the:
T4200 (2.0 GHz)
P8600 (2.4 GHz)
Choices can be a good thing but it's too confusing here. Is the T6600 better than the P7450?
Third, there are two video cards to pick from:
512MB NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT
512MB NVIDIA GeForce 9200M GS
Which one is better here? I would think the 9600 but that's just a guess. Seems like the 9200M GS is just now available in 512MB instead of 256MB. So maybe that one is.
