HP/Compaq :: How Do I Find Out What MB I Have In My Evo N800c Notebook
Jan 7, 2009
How do I find out what MB I have in my evo N800c notebook?I have looked in the bios and system info and only see the CPU info.I'm have what I believe is a viedo card problem due to the frequte shutdowns when watching videos or playing games.does this sound like a video card problem?or something else?when it shuts down the power light is on and the light down by the lacth is on but the HDD light is off.I have swicth out the memory and no change,have run the HDD testers HP's and others and the drive checks out fine.ran a memory test and it checked out fine.ran a video test and it says it fine,so....... what can be the prob?that's why I thinking replace the MB but don't know the model # and type.I do have another N800c with a smaller processor and was wondering if I could take the board out of the other one and swap processor etc.
I had receive an old one compaq laptop evo n800c from my father, but I have a problem with this laptop. only for booting (cold or hot booting) it takes about 6 minute stuck in compaq logo in the beginning
I had enabled quick boot option in BIOS but it seem doesn't work because the time needed for booting does not change, such as before a quick boot is enabled
I have a travelmate 2301 with a 1.5gig celeron in it, will the processor from the compaq evo N800c which is a 2.0g p4m fit this board? the motherboard died in the compaq so im going to scavange the parts from it...it has 2 gigs of ram, a 120g 7200 rpm seagate drive as well. I hope the processor can fit..
I am looking for a X-Fi Xtreme Audio Notebook and I can't find them anywhere.
I was told that the Integrated Sound Blaster Audigy HD (which I have) does support the Logitech Z 5500. I just have to use both of the headphone input as well as the mic input. If that's true, then the ISBA HD supports 5.1?
After downgrading from windows 8 to windows 7 the usb slot on the right side of the laptop is working, nut the two on the left hand side are not working. Windows driver search says no driver found and unidentified ERROR.
I just purchased a HP 15-r014TU Notebook, which comes with FreeDOS as I purchased a Windows 8.1 license as part of a student deal in campus.
I used the official Windows USB installer to make a bootable USB of the ISO file. It booted fine, but after selecting the install option, I recieved a error that said "Windows cannot find the Microsoft Software License Terms. Make sure the installation sources are valid and restart the installation". It looked like this:
I installed Ashampoo Burning Studio 9 yesterday to burn some DVD's/CD's for archiving purposes on my HP6850s using Windows 7 Ultimate, and while I can burn CD's/DVD's on my Toshiba laptop, I can't burn them on this one as for some reason, Windows 7 Ultimate couldn't find the DVD drive when it was installed and I don't know what the exact details for it are so I can download drivers for it.
Is there any way I can get Windows 7 Ultimate to recognise the drive so I can burn my discs?
I remember that the disc drive used to be available but at one stage, I attached a external drive to it which I removed properly and I don't know if that might have something to do with it...
My dv2000t came with Vista installed but Vista is now broken and gone and I want to install WinXP instead. I installed XP but XP cant find any network adapter on the laptop. I have an ethernet cable plugged in to the laptop. Prior to this there was no problem connecting to the internet with this machine. Win XP can't find the network adapter therefore I can't use the internet at all. Since this dv2000t came with Vista installed maybe the network adapter requires something not available in XP therefore you can only use it with Vista loaded.
why XP can't find any network adapter on this dv2000t?
i am attempting to replace the CMOS battery in my presario; however, i can't seem to find it. i have tried to search for the service manual for this model but could not find it. i looked at the service manual for the C300 series and it indicated that the CMOS was under the memory module, but it isnt in the same place in mine.
The issue is most noticeable when I'm listening to my music, in any program. It gets unbearable at times. However, when I stream videos or watch DVDs, the issues seems much less prevalent. Actually, there will be times where I really can't notice the issue at all while streaming video or watching DVDs. Then again, sometimes the issue just goes away entirely. But it has always come back. Basically, it's very inconsistent, but it's a problem.
The sound is a very distinct popping noise, which sometimes occurs in sets of around 3-6 right in a row, or it can sometimes be very sporadic. Also, my audio sometimes tends to "skip," usually when click on buttons, open programs, view certain web pages, or move my mouse over certain things. It's unpredictable.
I'm pretty stumped as to what could be causing it. The annoying part is that I had this issue when I first got my laptop several months ago. However, I managed to fix it. I think by disabling the IDT power management settings. But, my hard drive died on me, so I got a replacement from HP. Ever since the replacement, the problem has been back.
Is there a way to stop the fan even in idle mode? It's driving me crazy because it's always running on full speed. I have the latest bios and the bios option "fan always on when plugged in" is disabled.
What processor options do I have with this laptop?
Can I put the Intel Core 2 Duo out of my Dell e1705 in it? I plan to upgrade my 2.0 C2D to the T7600. So I'll have an extra processor. I know someone selling one of these laptops for $350, but it comes with a celeron 1.73Ghz CPU.
My friend is having problems with her HP DV4 Notebook.
1) The keyboard goes into crazy mode every now and then. Sometimes she will press a key and it will take several seconds to appear. Other times, she will hit backspace while in Internet Explorer, and it will take her into a new tab or a whole new program. Pressing a key once, such as an r for example, will lead to 20 some r's before it stops.
2) The fan seems very loud. She says it was like this since the day she bought it. Seems excessively loud to me.
I have dv6700 which came with a s-video out and I cant thank it enough for the countless times it has come in handy. Now my friend bought her dv4t and it came with a vga-out only. I know there is a HDMI port, but we are trying to connect to a SD-TV here and that doesnt support HDMI. I bought a vga-to-rca adapter in the past to use with IBM T60 notebook and it didnt work on that. Probably that notebook inherently didnt support tv-out from that vga port. Does HP notebook have the capability to do tv-out from vga port and if yes, what do I need to connect it to a standard definition tv set?
when i hit the "zero" key, the number "zero" moves to the beggining of the line! the down button also leaves this"]". i just recieved a new keyboard and installed it thinking this was the issue. i also reformatted, reinstalled, etc..etc..
I have a HP pavillion dv9610us Notebook which i never really have had issues with until now. As of this past week, when I close my lid and the notebook goes to sleep it is getting so friggin hot now when I come back to use it when before it never did.
I've recently started to have a problem with my HP Pavilion ZE4900 notebook. For some reason, it can't get a charge.
When the AC adapter is plugged in, an indicator light will light up to confirm that the laptop is charging. But whenever I plug the AC in, the light doesn't come on anymore. Sometimes the light will come on, only to go back off a second later. I've ruled out the AC adapter by using another one and I've ruled out the battery by taking it out and trying to power it off the AC alone. With both, I still have the same problem, which leads me to believe that it could be an internal problem.
I was looking for a sleeve for my HP HDX 16t. I have not been able to find any sleeves that are 16 inches. I can only find the 15.4" and 17" ones. Will one of those work while still being fairly snug or do you know of a 16" one?
I have a Compaq Presario V6700 Notebook, with Realtek high-def audio running OS Vista Home premium.
I purchaced in July 08 and no problems at all with it until Feb 09.
In Feb my sound stopped working from the internal speakers. I tried updating and reinstalling drivers for the sound (used correct drivers from Compaq website) and it still didn't work so I have just used the headphones in the past two months.
I am now in a situation where I need the internal speakers to work, so I have tried updating/reinstalling the drivers again and no go. After doing some more research I have tried doing a system restore to before the issue began in Feb and still no sound. I then did a complete restore back to scratch so I had a fresh new OS and STILL no sound from internal speakers.
I have clueless as to what has happened. I have sound from headphones and if I plug in external speakers they work fine too. The device manager says the device is working properly. The computer has not been dropped or taken apart.
