HP/Compaq :: DV5z Fan

Jan 10, 2009

I have a new DV5z with the AMD Turion zm-84 and ATI radeon 3450. When I'm running on A/C power and on the high performance mode, the fan runs constantly. When I'm not even using the computer and it's sitting at idle, it still runs! It's loud...louder than a 2008 notebook should be IMO.

Is this a defect? Why won't the fan ever stop running?

HP/Compaq :: DV5Z- Laptop, And The Specs

Apr 22, 2009

My last computer was the HP DV5Z, which I LOVED. It was the perfect size, did everything i needed it for, and was an overall great choice.

Unfortunately, 1) My laptop was stolen when my apartment was broken into , and 2) they no longer sell the dv5z on hp.com

Now, I am for sure going to order my laptop from hp.com, so I need to know what you guys would recommend.

I will use my laptop for gaming, research, college, and DVD burning.

I am almost positive I want the slightly bigger dv6z, and thats my main choice.

However, I'm not sure how big of a difference performance in CPU is, if 4 gigs of ram is REALLY worth it over 3gigs of ram, whats the benefit of the wireless-N card over G, and how come all the coupons are used up

HP/Compaq :: HP Dv5z Series- With USB Devices And Start Up

Mar 4, 2009

I have had a HP dv5z w/ windows Vista Home Premium - 64 bit for two days now.

1) I have a wired USB mouse that I use since the touchpad is terrible. But everytime, I plug in this supposedley plug and play mouse, there is a message that says device driver is being installed and it takes a few moments before the mouse can be recognized. Is this normal?

2) Also, the day i got my laptop, i had to download Windows updates (the automated message on the control panel said so!) and installed them. I am not sure if its related but since then i have re started my laptop 2-3 times and there is a file check process that happens as a part of the start up and then just before the welcome screen comes, i get a message
Step 1 of 3 - Configuring Updates - Do not shut down your computer.

How long is this going to happen and is this normal?

HP/Compaq :: Dv5z - Power Adapter Not Working

Feb 22, 2009

I have HP DV5Z-1000 laptop. The other day my AC adapter stopped working and won't charge my laptop. I know it is the adapter because when I have it plugged into the wall, and not even plugged into the laptop, it beeps.

I got my laptop in the US, but I am currently living in a small town in Canada and can't easily get replacement parts. I am not sure if HP will ship the same adapter to Canada.

My question is, can I buy any old adapter or would I need the same one it came with? If I need to buy a third party adapter what one can i get?

HP/Compaq :: Battery Meter After Clean Install, Dv5z

Jan 14, 2009

After a clean install of vista on my dv5z, all the drivers have been installed and everything works properly...

one thing i noticed was that the battery manager now says

Power Saver
High Performance

instead of

HP Recommended
Power Saver
High Performance...

I was wondering if there is any benefit of having Hp recommended instead of just Balanced, and if there is a driver or fix?

HP/Compaq :: Evo N620c: LCD Screen

May 21, 2009

I initially thought that I was experiencing the typical flickering-to-a-faint-screen shot inverter issue, but 3 inverters later and also 2 LCD replacement panels later (managed to come around multiple panels and inverters known to be working), the flickering-to-no-backlight problem persists. No matter which combination of panel/inverter I connect to the unit, the inverters are buzzing. (Hooking the unit to an external monitor works perfectly still at least.)

Since the LCD has to draw current from the motherboard, is it possible that the motherboard has some kind of problem sending current to the screen or something that's causing all the malfunctioning or even killing all the inverters I had?

last summer I was given a HP Pavillion dv5 that had a little problem with his screen:

The part number of the piece is 484363-001, and it seems it has to be WXGA because of the resolution (1280x800). Is there any problem if it's WSXGA instead?

HP/Compaq :: Screen- Nx6125

Jul 27, 2009

screen problem on a Compaq nx6125.

Some time ago I was helping a friend troubleshoot her laptop which, among other things, wouldn't display anything on the screen. One of the things I tried was to take the display cable from her laptop's motherboard and connect it directly to my nx6125's screen. A bad idea, as it turns out, because after that my Compaq's screen appeared dead as well. Only the backlight still worked, so the screen was entirely light grey-ish when the laptop was turned on.

Hence question one: can something like that kill a laptop screen?

Anyway, I tried a few things to try and isolate the problem on my Compaq. Connecting an external monitor via VGA showed that the video card was fine, as the picture showed up on the external monitor. I also tried taking another old laptop I have and connecting its screen to my Compaq's display cable. Not smart, yes, considering that's how I busted my Compaq in the first place, but that other laptop is basically a brick anyway, with a non-working screen backlight among other things, and I mostly use it for parts. Anyway, the screen showed a faint picture, which leads me to conclude that the display cable on my Compaq is fine and that it is indeed the screen itself that's busted.
Question two: is there anything else I could check, or any repairs to attempt, before springing for a new screen on eBay?

Speaking of a new screen, there are two different ones available on eBay for the nx6125 - XGA and SXGA+. The laptop originally came with an XGA screen, and I wouldn't mind upgrading to SXGA+ while I'm at it, but I want to be sure the screen is 100% compatible.
So question three: are the screens availble on eBay in general, and the SXGA+ screens in particular, a 100% fit for my nx6125?
