i tried to install win xp on dv5t but after the installation finished and windows started for the first time, a blue screen appears for about a micro second and then the laptop restarts. i did include sata drivers while making the bootable cd for win xp.can any one send me a complete procedure to install win xp on dv5t-1000 model
Does this OS run like windows? can i pop in lets say world of warcraft and install and play it normally? will it run blizzards background loader? i just want to know if this OS will run like a normal OS.
Or is the Mi OS ment for people who really just want a netbook for internet and small media and nothen more because the OS wont let them do anything else other than what HP gives them?
i have a HP DV5T which is awesome. plays all my games, and is quite possibly the perfect laptop. but, has anyone seen how cool the mini note is? dear god, my only problem is justifying the price, and if i need it. i go to college and live in a dorm. would buying the mini note completely destroy the reason i have a $1500 laptop in the first place?
i do work at best buy, and theirs is $399 and it's got 16GB SSD, 2gb HP flash module. 1.) it says it has a "bluetooth bus enumerator"? is that a bluetooth module or no? i do ask because it plays a small factor in the purchase.
2.) secondly, does anyone know if the mini note at Best Buy has that cool HP software on it? our display doesnt, so i do wonder.
[at HP.com in the APP store i can get the same one (16gb SSD, and bluetooth for sure) for $437. i might go there?]
summary of the problem: Bought a very costly HP laptop around Sep 08
Experienced heating problems from around Dec 08.
Dealt with their customer care to get it returned or replaced in Jan – but they simply would do nothing for it.
Heating problem as got worse. It turned off due to over heating with just windows and 2 windows of Firefox and a streaming video.
Trying to understand the options I have now. So people who have had similar experience with HP customer care, PLEASE tell what can I do now.
Reading the expanded version below will give a lot more insight to my problem.

HP Pavilion DV4T-1000
Vista Home Premium (64-bit) Core(TM)2 Duo T9400 (2.53 GHz) 14.1" WXGA High-Definition HP LED Widescreen 3GB DDR2 RAM 256MB NVIDIA GeForce 9200M GS 250GB 5400RPM SATA Hard Drive with Hard Drive Protection from Fuji Intel(R) WiFi Link 5100AGN High Capacity 6 Cell Lithium Ion Battery........
my daughters DV4t began having video issues. The unit had been flawless for a year but after the unit had run for 5 to 10 minutes, every 4 or 5 seconds or so it would begin flashing a pencil thin green line horizontally across the entire bottom of the screen. The longer the unit ran the larger the line would become until it consumed the entire task bar. It demonstrated this behavior in normal mode, safe mode, and in BIOS mode. I tried everything I knew (drivers, BIOS, etc…) to solve the problem without resolution.
Luckily we have an extended 3 year warranty with ADP. The unit is/was just over its initial 1 year warranty period (Christmas). The unit was returned for repair and HP replaced the lid, LCD, and associated parts. I’m happy to say that in 8 days the unit came back with no issues and in flawless condition, but I must also say that it’s a bit disappointing that such a failure should occur so early in it’s well cared for life.
I have bought a DV5T Notebook 1 month back from US and now i am India, there is physical damage on the LCD screen and i am sure teh LCD screen got broken. When i tried to call HP India Customer Care people, they have said this model is not available in INDIA and they cant do service. And when i chatted with HP US customer care people they said it charges $700 for repair which i dont think to pay as i can buy new Notebook.
i have a mini 1014tu that is mini 1000 series... every time when i plug power line the screen become very bright.. every time i change the brightness... that come back to most bright after plugin or out...... how to fixed? i use windows xp sp2
I just got my new hp pavillion dv7-1000, it loaded up and i did all the registration stuff before you actually get to using the laptop but as the vista desktop loads up i closed to lid and it put the laptop on standby.
Now when i try to turn the laptop on i get to the log on screen, put in my password, it loads up and then i get a blue screen with my mouse cursor but no desktop icons or anything. I can still do control-alt-delete but i just cant see any of the other stuff. I then booted in safe mode and i could then see everything but it looked like windows 98 not vista,
I'm trying to figure out the difference between the two other than the casing (one's metal and one's plastic). The 2140 uses a SATA connector vs a PATA connector. So for $25 extra(lowest config 2140 vs highest config 1000) you get a metal case and SATA connector?
Why would anyone buy the 1000? Am I missing something? Oh and the 2140 has a higher volatage adapter for 'fast charging'...what's left for the 1000?
I have brought a new dell studio 1435 laptop and they provided me with default windows vista home premiun OS.
I have installed windows XP professional OS after changing the BIOS settings for onboard devices (In BIOS:
Onboard Devices -> Flash Cache Module -> Set Off Onboard Devices -> SATA Operation -> Set ATA)
Can i will be able to install the windows vista OS after installing windows Xp with the same BIOS settings for onboard devices (In BIOS: Onboard Devices -> Flash Cache Module -> Set Off Onboard Devices -> SATA Operation -> Set ATA)
I recently recieved HP dv5-1119nr as a gift for Christmas. It has a Windows Vista Home Premium 64-Bit OS. I am a DJ and Use Numarks Virtual Vinyl audio Interface which is for my turntables. I have no complaints with the notebook. Unfortunately, the interface is not compatible with 64-Bit, and according to Numark may not be anytime soon. I had a friend upload his Vista 32-Bit OS for me to download, as a matter of fact he sent me two to choose from. I have (frustratingly) tried multple times to burn and re-install a 32-Bit system. I have tried using Cyberlink DVD Suite to save the .iso file (I understand that). It shows up looking like a winrar file, but in properties it does say .iso. Once burn is finished I try to reboot. Under BIOS, CD Drive is enabled and first. But it doesn't Boot! Upon looking at the disc it shows 2 files; BOOTCTG.BIN and BOOTIMG.BIN. What am I doing wrong?
Just bought a new 2.5 HDD for my laptop. It's suppose to arrive tomorrow and I thought I'd get on the front side of the installation. Is there anything I should be knowing beyond a simple 'unscrew the bay cover on the bottom of the dv7, unscrew and remove the old drive, unscrew the old drive from the caddy, screw the new drive into the caddy, place the new drive/caddy assembly into the same bay, push the assembly into the connector slot, screw the caddy down, button up the dv7, and do a clean install of Windows 7'? I've been told that I may have to do some special type of reformatting before initial and first use of the new drive or else it may not work properly. Is this true?
I've also heard that some BIOS adjustments might allow me to use both the old and new drives,... true? Will using a 7200 rpm drive in one bay along with a 5400 rpm drive in the second bay cause problems? If not, should I dedicate the faster drive to holding data or elect for it to be the boot drive?
I've tried finding something on HP's site with very little success.
I have this Laptop, HP ZV5000 (P4 3.06 Ghz,512DDR, Ati mobility 9100,broken screen but using an LCD monitor
I want to know if I can install Win 7 without much problem. But I want to use the LCD monitor and the video conector (S-Video) at the same time. With the latest driver of Ati (from HP) , I can't use both at the same time.
i have hp compaq presario cq40 304au, and every time when i try to downgrade to window's xp on it. it goes to blue screen error after loading up windows xp installation.so i googled it and i found Installing Windows XP on the Intel based dvx500t Series and i read it, however i didn't fully understand if it apply to me.
I'm trying to install XP on my machine after I fried old HD that had W7 installation. I bought new HD but i only have XP CD so i figured I'll install XP so far to get the PC up and ruining, and upgrade to W7 once i find by back-up CD.
My new HD is picked up by machine, and CD starts with installation, copying files from the CD, but only up to the point where it is supposed to start with windows installation.
At that point I get blue screen and message telling me i do not have HD or it is incorrectly installed and that I should run check disk. I've run BIOS scan, and HD is present and scans OK. Is it possible that previous install of W7 is memorized somewhere in BIOS and it is not allowing me to install XP even though HD is blank and brand new?
I tried to install Windows XP sp3 in it.. since the dvd-drive of CQ60-100EE had problems, i removed the Hard disk > fixed it in my other laptop and installed XP > then fixed the HDD back to CQ60-100EE.. now when i switched on the laptop, a blue screen appears after Windows XP boot screen.. and then the laptop restarts.. (the blue screen appears just for a fraction of second..) , the laptop starts normally in SAFE MODE.. no blue screen appears while it is starting in safe mode.. Also i have difficulty in finding XP drivers for CQ60-100EE..
I am awaiting the arrival of my new DV7T (configuration to follow) and would like to know if anyone has successfully installed XP on theirs and if so, what problems, if any, did you encounter?
Configuration is as follows: --HP Pavilion dv7t Entertainment PC - Genuine Windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 1 (64-bit) - Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo Processor T9550 (2.66 GHz) - 4GB DDR2 System Memory (2 Dimm) - 500GB 7200RPM SATA Dual Hard Drive (250GB x 2) with HP ProtectSmart Hard Drive Protection - 1GB ATI Mobility Radeon(TM) HD 4650 - 17.3" diagonal HD+ High-Definition HP BrightView Infinity Widescreen Display (1600 x 900) - Blu-Ray ROM with SuperMulti DVD+/-R/RW Double Layer - [For BrightView Infinity Display] Webcam + Fingerprint Reader - Intel Next-Gen Wireless-N Mini-card with Bluetooth
I have an HP dv5t which I purchased new last October. A couple of weeks ago, my HD got fried (think it overheated). HP sent me a new HD, and I had a technician install it for me. I never made recovery disks as instructed by HP (was gonna get around to it; who knew the HD would die in 9 mos?). The tech ended up installing Vista Ultimate Lite instead, which I thought was okay b/c there's no bloatware that way. However, I miss a lot of the elements of the Aero environment, particularly Windows DVD Maker.
I have two questions:
1. Can I get backup CDs from HP to reinstall Vista Home Premium (which is what my lappie was shipped with)? Would doing so reinstall the bloatware?
2. Is there a way to tweak Vista Ultimate Lite so I can have the standard GUI w/o putting bloatware back in my system? The environment in Ultimate Lite reminds me too much of XP (clunky-looking windows, fonts are too large, etc).
i just bought my hp hdx 16 yesterday the main reason i choosed hdx 16 over dv6 is the second hard drive option(as said in maintenance guide) now i opened the back and no place for my second hard drive if any1 knows where the connector
