HP/Compaq :: Dv7-1170us: G Or N Wireless
i know nothing about the ins and outs of wireless connection. i picked up a linksys wrt54g when i got my first laptop around 4 years ago. it was plug and play for the most part as i remember it and it's given me no issues. i've only started reading into an upgrade as i've heard the N (looking into the WRT160N) can give much more impressive transfer rates. just wanted to know if the 1170us has both options built in, and if not, what i'd need to accomplish an N connection.

HP/Compaq :: Dv7-1170us- How Do You Keep Clean
i purchased a dv7-1170us about a week ago. love it a lot, would like to preserve its looks more than my prior dated black lenovo i beat around. the machine looks great brand new but is a definite smudge magnet. do any of you that really baby your gear use anything special? i'm planning on ordering some monster screen cleaner and keyboard cleaner by a company called 3m, unless you have better screen/key ideas. i'm sure it's well covered but don't see much about what everyone uses on the other surface areas, the top, trackpad, speaker area. anything special? old t shirt and water?

HP/Compaq :: -1170us- Proper Defrag
i'm on a dv7-1170us. it's new as of a couple weeks or so. i haven't defragged a computer in several years. i've read numerous ways to do it, some which don't necessarily work, also people that say after a defrag the computer will have taken of several GB of space. i'd obviously like to do it without that.

HP/Compaq :: SPDIF Input- On DV5T

In the IDT audio menu it has the option but says only thru the HP dock and Im not shelling out 100 bux for that. what can i do to use the SPDIF or Optical cables, even the analog cables?

Acer :: Using SPDIF
My new Acer Aspire 6930 supposedly has the option of using the line output also for SPIDIF. Despite the fact that I have this all set up in Vista, I can't seem to get it working. I've used SPIDF with my old PC on my receiver (I ALWAYS did) so I know that everything on the software and hardware side of my digital receiver is ok. However, it doesn't seem to deliver a signal out of that jack anyway and I've tried plugging both the left and right outputs of my RCA cable into the digital coax input of my Onkyo. Do I need a special cable to get this working or what?

I can always use analog out to my receiver, but why when digital is so much cleaner? Besides, sometimes I want my 5.1 surround!

Dell :: SPDIF For E1705
I have an inspiron E1705/9400 and i was wondering how the spdif function works on this laptop. I was reading some threads and some users mentioned that the s-video dongle, part # TJ965 works with E1705. I watch a lot of online videos/live events on sopcast/tvu player so i was wondering if the audio from those videos would come on my tv?

Has anyone tried it ?

Is spdif only for DVDs?

Also, i bought this crappy S-video to 3 rca shown here but all this does is show video and only if i plug in all three rca outputs to my tv...weird.

Acer :: Aspire 5613AWMLI No Spdif
Having bought my first notebook I wanted to connect it to my 6.1 sound system. Using a 3.5 stereo jack to 2 phono leads plugged into the headphone socket I get nothing. I have tried several leads.

My sound system is a Marantz SR4300 and works fine with my Asus powered desktop but wont register the Acer. I have nothing else to try it with, but the headphones work fine. Is this a compatability issue or could the spdif be not working.

I have updated the driver to 6.01. from 5340. This model number seems to be a UK version but the label inside says 5610.

Acer :: 1410 Capable Of Spdif 5.1 Sound
I'm awaiting shipment of a duo core 1410 Acer. My intent was on using it primarily as a HTPC. I know it has HDMI/spdif outputs but I have been told when inputting into my receiver from either of these outputs, sound will be limited to stereo 2 channel audio.

Acer :: 8920G SPDIF/headphone-jacket Not Working
Anyone gotten sound from the SPDIF/headphone-jacket? I've connected a digital cable to this jacket to my reciever but i dont get any sound at all. I've changed to "Realtek Digital Out" in the sound options. Maybe there's some setting to switch this from analog(headphone) to SPDIF or maybe this is done automaticly?

I really hope i dont need to buy a HDMI-reciever to get digital out from this laptop, already spent much on this laptop

Acer :: Aspire 8935G With Realtek Audio- Enable SPDIF
I have a new Aspire 8935G with Realtek audio (AL889, if I read it well) and I'm not able to use digital output.

I tried using a common stereo jack to RCA cable, using just the left (black) RCA to plug into the digital COAX input of my ampilfier, but nothing came from the speakers.

Do you know how to setup the digital output of the Aspire?

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 :: 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 :: HP DV7 Vs HDX 16
Can't really see much difference in these models....looking at Best Buy

Other than 17 vs 16 inch screen are their any benefits to build quality from 1 to the other?

I will be travelling so I would prefer the lesser HDX 16 incher but build quality is a concern

I travel by plane, train, bus every weekend so it needs to be able to handle a little beating

HP/Compaq :: Hp Dv2
I'm am deciding whether to buy this laptop for school use. It has a great size, stylish, and decent specs for a laptop that is so lightweight. The only turn off is that it was made for entertainment, but should this laptop do well for word processing, spreadsheets, and web surfing?

Would the 9 cell battery last for more than 5-6 hours? My budget is also under 700$ but it can stretch a little.

HP/Compaq :: DV2 Or DV3
I'm heading off to school, and these stylish, affordable notebooks have caught my eyes. The only problem is that I only get 2-3 hours of battery life on these notebooks although I can buy an extra battery. What I"m mainly doing is word processing, spreadsheets, iTunes, and web browsing but not all at the same time.

Here are my main questions and concerns:

Do these notebooks have good build quality?Is there any other way to charge the battery without having it in the notebook?Do they get hot?

I may have more questions to ask later.

I am buying this notebook in Canada.

Seeing that the battery tests I've seen on some reviews, they are surfing the internet with Wi-Fi on. I will not be, I'll usually be word processing. Should it last maybe 3 hours?

How long does the 9 cell last on the DV3?

HP/Compaq :: DV7
I own a DV7-1038CA, I actually decided to buy it after reading what people said about the DV7s on this forum. Unfortunately I have a problem .

I had opened up my DV7 to clean out the fan ( ****load of dust in there) and took the whole laptop apart. I put it back together and it worked perfectly fine for about 10 hours. The laptop worked great until I dropped it down on my table at a height of about 1 1/2 inches, not a significant height but the screen immediately turned white and the laptop shut off completely. It would not turn on at all, the power light would blink for less than a second and turn off and then I'd have to wait 30 seconds before I could get it to blink again.

I then took the laptop apart again and this time I checked if everything was plugged in properly. I decided to leave the unnecessary covers off so I could turn it on without having to screw it all back on, it turned for about 3 seconds....before I noticed the display cable to my screen was on the heat sink and had caught fire. I immediately turned it off but the damage had already been done, the fire had burnt through the wiring on the inside of the cable rendering my screen useless ( whenever it was plugged the charging light on the side of the laptop would turn off). At this point the laptop was turning on but would turn off after about 5 seconds (probably due to the fact that there was no screen) During this little fiasco I had ripped off the ZIF cable that connects the power button board to the Motherboard. So now I had no way to turn my laptop on, I ordered a new screen and a new power button board.......

HP/Compaq :: HDX 16, HDX 18
Not in a race on which is better mind you, since these two are next-of-kin. But I mean which parts will fit both? I've been looking for some upgrade parts to the HDX 18, but all I seem to find are parts rated for the HDX 16. So, save the obvious screen size difference, just how comparable are these two in parts?

The keyboards look identical; and the extended battery I found lists a match for the HDX 16 but not the HDX 18. Would there be a size difference?

HP/Compaq :: HP HDX 18t Able To Run XP
I was looking at getting the HP HDX 18t for my self to replace my older laptop. The only problem is the college I go to requires that the laptops you use run windows XP because some of the software they use for web design and programming classes apparently only works on XP. I looked on the HP website and they do not offer a downgrade option to XP. I also looked on the HP HDX 18t support site and they do not have XP drivers listed (except the wireless card and finger print scanner drivers).

So I was wondering if the HP HDX 18t supports Windows XP has anyone who owns this laptop ever downgraded it to XP succesfull before?

I don't mind Installing XP from scatch or setting up a dual boot with Vista but I'm just worried about buying the laptop and not being able to Run Windows XP.

Link to the laptop I was looking at.

HP/Compaq :: HP RMA For My DV6
My DV6 (see in sig) has an AMD Turion Ultra in it and everybody knows that they run real warm, even when I use HP recommended "power setting".

Anyway, undervolting is an option, there is a few free apps that can help doing it. BUT!

My Laptop is only 6 months old, so it's under warranty.

I contacted HP and they seem willing to initiate an RMA.

My Lappy's CPU runs at around 90 degrees celsius after 5 minutes of gaming (COD5).

Running 3DMARKS06 has the same effect...89-92 celsius, USING a laptop cooler, and there is NO dust whatsoever on the fins/exhaust/intake vents...

I know I could open it, reapply thermal paste (I have some Arctic Cooling MX2 laying around)..

For some reason my wifes laptop keeps loosing the wireless adapter. It's as if its not installed. It is not even in the device manager! I reinstalled the adapter drivers and then it was found and worked, but on next boot up it was lost again. I then uninstalled the HP wireless software and used the windows software. It worked for about a day and now the adapter is gone again.

-how long will the battery last per charge?

-i haven't heard too many positive things about the 130m, so is it easy to "upgrade" this card at say, bestbuy? i wanna play FPS mostly, like COD5 on max settings.. maybe crysis, but from what i heard not many laptops can run that game on max settings.

-is 2,700 a good price for everything included in this package, or is there something "better" i could buy?.............

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 :: DV2
I wants one, I'm wondering if the only model that came configured with the Turion Neo x2 is the dv2-1199us model? [url]

They aren't sold in Canada anymore except in 'The Source' (formerly Radio Shack now owned by Circuit City) stores and they only have the 1020ca models, which I am not interested in.

Was there any other models with the turion neo and 3410 graphics? Doesn't seem to be that great a selection even on e-bay for dv2's

HP is really pushing the DM3 here in the Calgary area, but they all are the low end models, with the L335 Athlon and base graphics, I'd go for one of these 13 inchers I suppose if I could find one of the turion neo/ATI 4330 models but no such luck in Canada with HP

/rant

What the heck HP? Why oh why can Canadians not buy from the US site? The Canadian hpshopping site is very, very very sadly lacking as is our retail selection of decnt models.
