HP/Compaq :: F700- Hardware Failure

Jan 18, 2010

I have a compaq presario f700 and I got it in november of 2007. Anyways today I was surfing the web when all the sudden in lost the internet connection. The little orange light next to the switch was on but the switch was turned on. it would not find any wireless networks so I reinstalled the wireless driver from the recovery program and it worked for like 10 minutes, then the orange light came back on and I lost internet connection. Anyways I have reinstalled windows twice now and I still cannot get the computer to find any wireless connections and the blue light will not come on, it stays orange. Is this a software problem or did my broadcomm wireless hardware thing take a crap?

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 F700 & Windows 7 Bad Battery Performance

Jan 11, 2010

I recently upgraded my wife's laptop from Vista Home Premium to Windows 7 Ultimate and almost everything works fine on it. The one sticking point through has been the battery behaving oddly in Win7. The first thing is that the battery icon has a red X on it and when you hover over it it states that I should consider replacing my battery. When the laptop runs unplugged, it literally lasts 20 minutes before it powers itself off. This is a huge difference when it would last over 2 hours in Vista just before the upgrade.

I'm wondering if there are specific drivers I should install or downgrade even though everything in Device Manager no longer has any yellow exclamation marks (I had to install some drivers after installing Win7). FYI, this laptop is about 1.5 years old.

If I can't find a solution to the low battery performance, I may have to revert her laptop back to Vista which would totally negate the reason for buying Win7 in the first place for her machine.

HP/Compaq :: DV5-Z Hardware Failure

Dec 13, 2009

I have the following system:

HP DV5-Z CTO1000
AMD Turion ZM-80 2.1Ghz @65nm and .950 Voltage
3GB PC26400 RAM (Samsung 2GB, Elpida 1GB)
ATI Radeon HD 3200 w/ 256MB shared memory
Windows 7 Ultimate

In normal use (meaning browsing the web, listening to mp3 music, watching h.264 video, using MS Office, etc) there is absolutely nothing wrong with the machine. However, after a few minutes of light gaming, such as the Sims 3 or World of Warcraft on low settings, the entire system locks up and shows the following screen. The only thing that remains functional is the caps lock button, which lights on and off when pressed. No alt+tab, no ctrl+alt+dlt, nothing else.

At first I thought this was an overheating issue, as placing a desk fan near the heat vent made the problem delay. Instead of deathscreening a few minutes into playing the game, I could get a good hour or two of functionality. But even with the desk fan in a cold environment, the problem still occurs.

HP/Compaq :: Dv2220us Hdd Failure

May 5, 2010

i have a dv2220us i purchased sometime in late 06 early 07 had a few issues over the years nothing major.

sunday 04/02/10 i pick my laptop up slide my finger across touchpad and nothing happens. quick launch buttons are lit, power light is on and wifi selector is orange while in on position. hmmm...i power it down then start it back up. it's much quieter than it has ever been and extremely cool. i pull hard drive cover and notice it's not spinning at all.

i remove hdd from chassis plug it in to coolmax cd-350 and my wife's dv4t hdd starts clicking, buzzing, beeping and grinding. i'm certain it's dead and i don't care if i'm able to salvage anything from it.

i purchased a wd6400bevt as a replacement, but i never made back up disks. i've installed the new drive all quick launch lights are on power light is on and wifi is orange. i know this hdd has no os or drivers, but i was hoping the monitor would wake up.

HP/Compaq :: HP HDX 18 Boot Failure Hdd Led Red Blink

Feb 13, 2010

I was using my laptop normally when suddently it began to freeze. No blue screen, no reboot, just freeze under Win7.

I did hard reboot to Win XP, same problem. And I re-tried to reboot under Ubuntu, same problem, freeze...

So, I tried a memtest because at this moment I was expected a ram problem, but nothing, 3 pass OK, no error.

BUT after that, next reboot, even no Bios...
Black screen, no bip, JUST the hdd led blinking in red.

So I tried to change the hdd (by a one I'm absolutly sure it works)
Same problem.
I tried to boot on a cd as well, it doesn't work.

What the meaning of red blinking on hdd led? (Normally this led is always white)

Someone knows the errors codes of the HP hdx 18t?

I'm supected a cpu or motherboard failure.

HP/Compaq :: Dv9500t Video Failure

Dec 15, 2009

I have a DV9500t with a nvidia 8600gs card in it. Last Friday my wife brought it to work and when she was leaving she just shut the laptop and stuck it in our notebook bag. When she got home we went out to eat and when we got back we took the laptop out and it was very very hot and smelled a little funny, apparently the damn thing didn't go to sleep when my wife closed the lid. Great HP workmanship there.... Well I let it cool off and turned it on... It started showing little red dots all over and when it tried to boot into windows there was multi colored lines up and down the screen. I could boot into safe mood and see everything, but the display was still a bit screwy show little red dots and artifacts everywhere...

So I've concluded that the video card overheated and I'm lucky it didn't start on fire, but at the same time the laptop is unusable. Is there anything inexpensive that I can do about this? The warranty expired a year and a half ago and I certainly can't afford a new laptop at this point. This is very frustrating since I thought the laptop would last at least another year.... Does anyone know if the video card can be replaced?

HP/Compaq :: MBR Error + Media Test Failure

My HP dv1000 hasn't been working too well for several weeks. Recently, when I started it up, it showed the HP logo, then just said MBR error. I was following these instructions on how to fix it [url], but when I put a new XP CD in and pressed a key to boot from CD, it came up with this error message:

PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable
PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel Boot Agent.

Has my laptop reached the end of its life?

HP/Compaq :: HP V6305nr Wireless Card Failure

Nov 24, 2009

way to test the wireless card in the laptop, seems to be dead. The laptop is almost 3 years old and is no longer under warranty.

This model of laptop (in general) had a lot of issues due to the faulty Geforce go 6150 GPU, and I guess that the excessive heat generated by it has taken it's toll.

HP Compaq Presario CQ61 Display :: Black Screen On Power Up - BIOS Corruption Failure?

Nov 15, 2012

I have a Compaq Presario CQ61 Product: VM9496Q2X Model: CQ61-319WM, that has a black screen when I power up.  The wifi button stays red and the caps lock flashes twice.  I believe this indicates a BIOS corruption failure.  I have tried resetting by unplugging and removing the battery, and holding the power button for 30 seconds.  I have tried the f8 key and the esc repeatedly at power up. I have also tried pressing the windows and B key along with the power key but nothing worked.

HP :: Envy 15t USB Failure

Aug 7, 2014

I have a two week old HP Envy 15 laptop running Windows 8.1. Today I plugged my cell phone into the laptop to sync my music and the phone was NOT recognized as a device. Then my logitech mouse and keyboard immediately stopped working. They work via a mini usb bluetooth. I tried rebooting and that didn't fix the problem. I checked the device manager and some usb devices were showing yellow. They were
 
- Intel 8 Series / C220 Series USB EHCI #1 8C26- Intel 8 Series / C220 Series USB EHCI #2 8C2D- USB Root Hub (xHCI)
 
I rebooted into diagnostics and tested each USB port and it said the USB ports were fine. Rebooted again and still nothing was working. I followed the steps to uninstall the devices and then reboot, and nothing happened except now the bad devices are listed as "Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller" and "Unknown Device". I've tried reinstalling the driver to no avail. The HP and Intel sites don't have a driver package for Windows 8.1 that works. The HP Intel Chipset Installation Utility does not install properly - "An unknown error occurred. Setup will exit"I checked the event logs and they had a few events about the "pointer device". "A pointer device reported a bad angular logical range", "A pointer device reported a bad angular physical range", and "A pointer device did not report a valid unit of angular measurement".At this point, the ports allow power though, but still won't connect anything plugged into them. Is this just a plain hardware failure or is there something more I can do to get this working without having to send the laptop back?

Dell :: M1330 Gpu Or Lcd Failure?

Mar 12, 2010

I have a small problem with my m1330 laptop. At some times it works perfectly, but at other times it will boot up but only a series of colours as can be seen in the image below.

I wanted first though it was a problem with the LCD, but later read that there are quite some problems with the m1330 gpu. Do you think I need a new LCD or that the GPU is to blame?

Dell :: M1210 CPU/GPU Failure

May 10, 2010

Has anyone had a GPU problem fixed more that one year out of warranty?

During my 1 year warranty the motherboard and CPU were replaced twice. My warranty ended in 2008

and my computer suffered from a GPU problem in 2009. After arguing with customer service for a while, Dell fixed my computer outside of warranty as a 1 time exception.

Dell :: Hardware Failure On My XPS

Jun 10, 2009

After assembelling it today, i found that when i plug it in and try to boot it up (everything hooked up correctly) the harddrive spins for 3-4 seconds with the green LED on and then it shuts down. No fans. No screen. No life?

Also when i touch the on button, the Wifi LED flashes for what feels like a millisecond. It has no BIOS or anything else installed, the battery got disconnected so i guess that means im in no mans land.

UPDATE:

Just reseated the CPU and it kind of works :/ It turns on and stays on, with the first 2 leds of power and the one to the right turning on. No fans spin and the screen is blank but atleast its turning on now... Ill fiddle some more and find out whats wrong.

UPDATE:

I entered a disk to the drive.. It spins it and seems to run. The screen (monitor) is still black however? But does this mean i can boot on the bios off a disk now?

Dell :: XPS 1640 DVD Failure

Jun 12, 2009

I purchased two XPS 1640 laptops with build dates the end of March 2009.

Recently I discovered that the DVD drives in both of them have failed. When I insert a DVD (movie, data or software) I hear a loud clicking noise and then the DVD ejects.

Since these laptops are used by my wife and son I don't know exactly when they failed but I know that I installed software on one of the first part of May and things were fine .....

Acer :: CPU Upgrade Failure

Jan 16, 2009

I attempted to upgrade my ageing aspire 3053 to the quickest processor I could find, a Turion mobile X2 - TL-60 to be exact.

I prepared well for it, buying arctic silver 5, IPA and whatnot. I even paid some dodgy ebayer 2.50 for the service and repair guide for it.

However, it has not gone very well, after installing said new processor, the only thing the machine would do was turn on, pass POST and then the fan would spin at 3 bazillion RPM and then switch off. Cue 7 attempts of applying the thermal compound and much swearing, still to no avail.

After leaving it on the coffee table in bits for the past 3 weeks, I finally decided to call it a draw and re-install the old Sempron. Oh dear. Didnt quite go as expected either....

My machine now is only half the laptop it once was pre-faffing. I can no longer complete the XP setup, as, after all the files are copied across, and you enter the stage where you set up the internet connection, quite a few odd things happen. The cursor jumps around the screen like the machine is struggling and you have to hold down the keys for at least 30 seconds each to get them to register.

I have taken it to bits again to see if I could faff with it some more, and have noticed a couple of things:

1) The mainboard appears to be now warped.

2) There is a slight burr on the heatsink where the cpu core will sit - looks like a manufacturing defect.

Sony :: VGN SZ370P Fan- Failure

Feb 16, 2010

My vaio's fan quit around the time I installed Windows 7. I cannot say for sure that Windows 7 caused the problem, but I cannot for the life of me get the fan to turn even one revolution now.

So I have looked into replacing the fan which actually seems very simple. My problem is, before I pay the money for a new fan, how do I ensure that the problem is actually the fan and not the thermostat on the motherboard which would make replacing the fan worthless.

The fan would be repairable, however, a failed thermostat means that I should just back up the hard drive and prepare for eventual component failure as it is heating up like a sun of a gun now.

Dell :: Clicking HD. Normal Or HD Failure

Jan 16, 2009

When idle, my harddrive makes a very faint clicking noise. By "clicking", I mean the same sound it makes when it is loading something... you know, that "tik tik tik" noise.

However, when idle, it tends to make little "tik" noises every 2/3 seconds or so.

Now, according to the internet, clicking means my HD is about to die... but having looked on youtube, by clicking people mean very loud clicking, like i was turning a light switch on and off...

Now I don't know. Is "access" clicking every few seconds normal? Or should i get my hd replaced??

To clarify, the clicking i am experiencing is no louder than the clicking you hear when ur HD is accessing information. If I used HDParm and play with the settings, the clicking sounds becomes almost impossible to hear and less frequent.

Dell :: GPU Temperature Failure M1330

Apr 12, 2010

ive been getting a vibe that my M1330 may bite the dust soon or relatively soon although its been pretty great and ive been praying that it doesnt have the issue.

Anyhow, I installed HWMonitor and basically I get temps averaging in the low-mid 70s and sometimes in the 80s. The highest it has ever gone since installing it two weeks ago was 84 C.

So at what temps exactly should I start to get worries are 70s bad?

Then my external hard drive has decided to give me corrupt errors so I cant even backup my files now ...
