HP/Compaq :: Hp Dv5000- Laptop Malfunction

Jan 3, 2009

My hp dv5000 has been malftunctioning for the last few weeks, its shuting down ramdomly, i was wondering if my laptop may need a new battery (its i think been 2 1/2 years since i bought my computer). Im also not sure if it could be cause by a software malfuction or viruz. I would check to see if its a software malfuction but it doesnt stay on long enought.

I would like to know if i should get a new battery or if any of you know of any software malfunction could cause this.

HP/Compaq :: HP Dv5000 Video

Jan 3, 2009

There is a white line across my screen and its a hardware issue, not a software issue. If I press on the left part of the LCD I can make the line disappear, but once I relieve the pressure it comes back again.

Does this sound like an inverter failure? From what I read this symptom doesnt sound typical for an inverter.

HP/Compaq :: Pavilion Dv5000 Series: More Than 2GB RAM

Aug 24, 2009

I have purchased a dv5178us Pavilion laptop 3 years ago and I feel it is time for memory upgrade. The manual and all the online memory stores say it only accepts 2 x 1GB memory modules.

I wonder if anyone have tested to install more memory, let's say 2 x 2GB modules, and if it works. I'm guessing that it may function based on some eMacs that used to work with more RAM that the manual informed.

HP/Compaq :: Battery Not Charging --HP Pavilion Dv5000

Mar 11, 2010

Battery will no longer take a charge. I can use a different adaptor and I have the same problem. I can take the battery out and re-charge it in my Presario v5000 without any problem using same power brick. ergo no battery or power brick problems.

HP will only run on battery power. When power is plugged in green lite flashes and battery icon says it is charging, but it is not.

It will not run on AC.

HP/Compaq :: HP Pavillion Dv6000 Battery/Computer Malfunction

Feb 13, 2009

I recently had my computer (HP Pavillion dv6000) repaired (I couldn't tell you exactly for what), and it was sent into HP to be repaired. I've got it back, and the problem that I previously had no longer exists.

Now however, the computer is not recognizing the battery. It works fine plugged into the wall and the battery is taken out, but when the battery is in the computer, the computer changes to battery power (instead of using external power and charging the battery) and soon dies, as my battery has little power left.

I borrowed a friend's battery (who has the same laptop) and for about 10 minutes the computer worked properly with the battery charging when plugged in. After those few minutes though, the computer resorted to battery power and won't charge. I think that rules out that it's just a faulty battery, but I could be wrong.

Sony :: VAIO BD Drive Malfunction

Feb 7, 2009

All of a sudden my OPTIARC BD ROM 5500A drive does not recognize when a Blu-ray movie is inserted. I try to open the drive with a movie inside and it tells me to please insert a disc and ejects the drive.

I chated with the sony analysts and they told me to (in this order after the previous solution did not work):
1. Update WinDVD player
2. Reinstall WinDVD player
3. Update WinDVD player again
4. Restore my C: drive to factory conditions
5. Reset by BIOS
6. Take my laptop to a Sony shop and pay 600 dollars to get this fixed.

Everything points to hardware malfunction, but I find it weird that in my computer the drive is identified as a DVD-RW drive, when I KNOW that it used to be identified as a BD/DVD-RW drive.

DVDs and CDs play perfectly, but it acts like nothing is inside when I put in a Blu/RAy movie. In the device manager it is identified properly as an OPTIARC BD ROM, the driver it has is the generic CD drive windows driver (Sony support said that is what it should have).

Driver: cdrom.sys
File version: 6.0.6000.16386 (vista_rtm.061101/2205)

Acer :: Aspire E3-112 Sudden Keyboard Malfunction

Jan 6, 2015

I've had this laptop 3 weeks, and this morning the keyboard suddenly stopped working properly. All was fine last night, but this morning, when I tried to log in, I found that I couldn't type my password. Most keys have stopped working, while others just come up with random symbols or punctuation marks (e.g. the Fn key now displays a /). I can press any key to get from the intro screen with the clock and date. The touchpad is working as it should. Attaching an external keyboard also works.

Dell :: 8800 GTX M1730 Malfunction Error In Vista

Aug 24, 2009

problem with my 8800 GTX in my XPS 1730...

Within Vista, both cards show up with a yellow exclamaton and a error code 43

I tried installing drivers off the dell website and then using Nvidia Reference drivers. No luck...

Re-Installed vista fresh- same problem...

Installed Windows 7 w/ Refernce Nvidia drivers - Same problem.

THEN..I installed Windows XP Pro SP3 with Dell website drivers and everything is working fine. Ran 3dmark, no crashes...

is this a software problem or hardware? Why would my 8800 work in XP but not Vista or Win 7? Has anyone heard of this problem? My 1730 is out of warranty so calling dell isnt an option.

Apple :: Older Powerbook - Keyboard Is Experiencing A Bizarre Malfunction

Aug 20, 2009

I just acquired a Kanga Powerbook running OS 9.1. It's in great shape except that the keyboard is experiencing a bizarre malfunction. Using Key Caps, I have determined that it is getting input from the Apple, control, option, and shift keys but the other keys are not responding. System Profiler also recognizes the keyboard as a Powerbook extended keyboard. It's as if the internal keyboard was somehow disabled. How can I reactivate it?

HP/Compaq :: Odd Sounds From Laptop

Oct 30, 2009

Recently I've started to hear some odd sounds coming from my DV2. I've been hearing pops, clicks, clacks, something that sounds something is constantly being turned on and off, and a very faint sound that sounds almost like a fan, but is coming from more near the middle or right side of the laptop than where the fan is.

Just wondering how bad these sounds are, or if they're natural laptop sounds that for some reason I just never heard.

HP/Compaq :: Is The Dv6t A Bad Laptop

Mar 13, 2009

I just ordered one and it should be here soon. I'm not using this laptop as a gaming machine because I have Xbox360 already doing the job for me. With that being said, I still don't want a crappy laptop that isn't stable (As far as graphics). I'm going to be using it for basically word processing, viewing movies, music editing, light video editing, and web browsing of course. I just need to know if it's a good machine, if anyone with the laptop care to let me know their experience, that was would be dope. If it's not any good I could just send it back for an exchange or get my money back. I paid around 625.00, that was with my student discount, but it came up to 700.00 before that.

HP/Compaq :: HP Laptop Categories

Feb 25, 2009

One thing that many people have noticed HP doing is "strangling" its mainstream laptops. For example: the drop of the 9600M GT in the dv5t right before discontinuing it, and no longer offering it on the special edition.

Many forum members also have said that HP seems to be steering people to the more expensive HDX series for gaming.

This consensus has been re-enforced by HP itself. You will notice in their online store that the category once called "Versatile Performance" is now "Everyday Computing." This is pretty transparent...

HP/Compaq :: Laptop Won't Start

Mar 30, 2010

I've seen lots of posts about laptops that won't start but none with the exact same problem as me. When I press the power button it lights up and it sounds like it's going to turn on but nothing happens. There's nothing on the screen. It sounds like it used to if you closed the lid while it was on.

Right now my Compaq V2000 laptop has two memory slots with 256 MB each for a total of 512 MB.

Can I just replace one slot with one 1 GB so I end up with a 1GB and a 256 MB? r would it be better to have both slots occupied by the same memory capacity?

HP/Compaq :: Use Laptop While Charging

Feb 10, 2010

I just wanted to ask that can I use my laptop when it is charging i.e. connected to AC mains? Some people say that doing so reduces the battery life. Whenever u have to use it on main line, remove the battery and then use. But its too cumbersome 4 me coz most of the times, I use it at home where ac line is available.
