HP/Compaq :: Dropped My Dv6500 SE

Jun 19, 2009

Dropped my computer and now it wont boot up. Instead it just keeps turning on and off. The screen is also cracked. HP tells me that the hard drive or motherboard have been shifted with the impact and are not being detected properly causing the power cycling. They are offering to fix it for $400. I would like to attempt to make the repairs myself, if possible.

HP/Compaq :: Dropped Laptop- Screen Replacement

Jan 21, 2010

I dropped my laptop and while the computer hardware all still works, the LCD is broken. However, I do not know how to get the broken one out, let alone a new one in. Does anyone know how to replace the screen on the dv4-1430us?

HP/Compaq :: DV9000 - Dropped Into Snow And It Still Works

Mar 14, 2010

Just a FYI for you, on Thursday i was nearly hit by a car and for some reason at that time i was carrying my DV9000 without any laptop bag or any protective anything at all... The thing dropped straight into three inches of snow.

Came back home, first thing i did was take out the hair drier and get rid of any water that the melting snow made. Second thing was to turn on the laptop, and it booted up first time. Third thing was to connect it to my amp and speakers, put on some Tech N9ne and have a beer. I actually finished the beer before the chorus ended... Then it was time to run to work, with laptop and all. Despite being exposed to cold yet again, she still did a flawless job. This going out to anyone who thinks HPs are unreliable.

Acer :: Aspire 5520 - Accidentally Deleted My Whole OS

Sep 18, 2008

I have an Acer Aspire 5520 laptop with 320gb hd space .. 8600m gs video card ... 4gb ram... Vista 32-bit oem.. etc.

The problem is that I've just accidentaly deleted my whole OS.
I booted with my Vista 64-bit disc so I could format one of my drives, but I stupidly formatted the wrong one. (the one with my OS)

So now I just installed Vista 64-bit on it, so I could at least do something with my laptop (watch dvds etc.), but I can't get the internet to work anymore because of all the important stuff that got deleted.

What I was using was some public WLAN.

Now it complains that a network adapter doesn't exist.. or something like that. I don't even know what that is.

Is there any way I can fix this myself? I just need to get my internet to work again.

Dell :: Accidentally Disabled The Quickset Tray Icon

Feb 14, 2009

I just got my new Studio XPS 16, but accidentally disabled the quickset tray icon. I've checked registry and tried reinstalling quickset, but nothing i do can get it back. Is there any other way to do it without having to reinstall my whole computer? (as i've already installed several other programs, it'll be quite some effort).

HP/Compaq :: HP Dv4t

Mar 30, 2009

I recently received my Hp dv4t. Its cool but has below mentioned problems.

1) Wireless connectivity disappears after 1 min. I have to manually restart network connection.

2) CPU fan always remains on. HP has by default set it to "always on" in BIOS. I know they had some issues earlier with heating so as work around they introduced this Hack. Is same issue with this laptop too?

3) HDD is getting very hot. Much hotter compared to my dell studio laptop. Is this normal or shall I ask for some specific manufacturer harddisk in replacement?

4) display is not fitting in screen. Display leaves 4cm space on bottom and right edge. Is there any way to manually adjust display like the one monitor or other laptop manufacturers provide? I have asked for replacement of whole laptop at present

HP/Compaq :: Dv4t HDMI

Mar 12, 2009

I'm having an issue displaying a picture properly on my Vizio 720p 26" LCD via HDMI. No matter what resolution, the desktop extends beyond the border of the screen as my mouse will move past it into the area I can't see, and the screen doesn't scroll like it normally would in windows when the resolution is set too high. The NVIDIA control panel can't even get the 720p option to display properly.

HP/Compaq :: Replacing Dv4t HDD

Mar 13, 2009

if any of you dv4t owners have run into the same issue trying to replace your hard drive... I opened the hard drive cover, removed the 3 screws holding the drive in place, and tried pulling up on the metal tab (the one facing the inside of the notebook) but couldn't get the drive free... I've been struggling to get the drive out for awhile now without any luck. Out of desperation I used a pair of pliers to try and get a better grip on the tab, but all I ended up doing was bending the outer casing (not the drive) slightly. It's like it glued in there or something!

My wife spilled Mt Dew on here laptop (hp dv4t), all over the keyboard, I quickly grabbed it, and help the power button to shut it down, turned it upside down and let the pop drain out, let it sit for a few days, and now it works fine...

HP/Compaq :: First ImpressionsHP Dv4t

Apr 17, 2009

Following my brief yet impressive experience with the budget HP dv4-1225dx notebook back in February, I wanted to revisit this model to see just what it was capable of in a more potent configuration. Welcome the new HP dv4t-1300 series CTO model, available directly from HP.

PROS: LED screen, styling, 12-cell battery, smart bay hard drive, gaming performance

CONS: Heat and noise, poor speakers, no firewire


In early March of this year HP did a slight refresh of their dv4 lineup. Gone unfortunately is the bronze/chrome color scheme that I was such a big fan of, but in place HP now offers a glossy black and, what they call, moonlight white color scheme.

Something has me thinking someone at HP wants to mimic that "other" black and white notebook maker. Like it or not, if you want a notebook from HP now it's going to be either an all black or white unit - no bronze, no silver - so get used to it. The specs on my unit are as follows:...............

HP/Compaq :: Fresh Install DV4T

Feb 18, 2009

I just did a fresh install of Vista Home Premium 64 Bit following Orev's guide. I backed up the SWSetup folder and everything went fine except a couple of things:

1.) Quickplay. I don't have the QPW & HPQPDP folders in the SWSetup folder. Does quickplay still come with DV4T's or is HP using something new? Do I need to install some other program or driver from SWSetup to get quickplay to work? Should I not even worry about it and just another player?

2.) Recovery Partition. I followed a link in another post, here at NBR, to HP's site telling me how to add quickplay from the recovery partition of the hdd. I can see the recovery partition but when I try to access it, it says it's empty. Is it possible to access it through explorer or do I have to boot from it? When I did the fresh install, I just reformated partition 1, the one with vista on it already and did nothing to the recovery partition. Is this correct?

3.) Bluetooth. After I installed bluetooth and only after the internet connection is established, the icon pops up on the system tray even though I disabled it in the startup menu and told it in the bluetooth program itself not to display the icon. Also, when the computer first boots up, it tells me bluetooth couldn't connect because of a .dll file that is missing?

4.) Scroll Slider on Touchpad. I disabled alot of things in the startup menu and now the scroll slider doesn't work. Obviously it's because of the things I disabled, but why would disabling it from startup cause it not to work? The touchpad still works fine. I followed some things in this thread and everything here. Could any of this affect the scroll slider?

5.) Recovery Manager. What happened to the recovery manager that came factory installed? Is that in the SWSetup folder?

6.) Drivers. Should I follow this thread and update all the drivers since they are all new compared to what is in my SWSetup folder?

HP/Compaq :: DV4T? (Specs Inside)

Jun 11, 2009

I was looking at the HP DV4T with specs:

-Moonlight white
-Vista 64bit
-P8600 2.4Ghz or I can up it to the P8700 2.53Ghz
-4 GB Ram
-320 GB Hard Drive 5400 RPM
-512MB Nvidia GeForce G 105M
-14.1" diagonal WXGA High-Definition HP LED BrightView Widescreen (1280 x 800) LED for better battery life.
-Intel Next-Gen Wireless-N Mini-card with Bluetooth
-High Capacity 6 Cell Lithium Ion Battery

I was wondering what you all think about this set up, or if I should tweak anything with like the processor.

Also how does this laptop run in your experience. Hot or loud? What does it score on performance index with these specs if anyone has them? Are there any concerns I should know about or tips. Like does the optical drive pull out if not using to save weight or add another hard drive? Maybe even steer me to another direction if you would like.

Also I have never owned a laptop before, but my friends use an external monitor when home. What do you all think about getting one?

This laptop will be for everything, school, entertainment, causal games.

HP/Compaq :: Remote Is Stuck- Dv4t

Apr 6, 2009

My hp.com customized dv4t arrived this morning and I have already managed to create a problem. I attempted to stick the media center remote into the eSata(or w.e) slot and I managed to push it in all the way, but now it is stuck. This isn't a problem as I probably will never use the remote, but it will be a pet peeve for a long time. Is there anyway to remove it?

HP/Compaq :: DV4T Maximum Memory

HP/Compaq :: New Dv4t- Aero Enabled

Jul 24, 2009

I just got a dv4t shipped from hp with 2.53 gigahertz, 4 gigs ram, and integrated graphics and I seem to be having a problem. After about half an hour to 40 minutes of talking on skype with video, with firefox and maybe a folder or two open, aero enabled, opening just one more app that isn't even too processor intensive such as the task manager or device manager, I suddenly get a message stating aero needs to shut off and my webcam stops working. The only way to fix it seems to be to shut down skype. After I do that everything is restored.

HP/Compaq :: Dv4t Special Edition

Jun 5, 2009

Does anyone have experience with the dv4t Special Edition?

I've been researching pretty hard for a while now, as I'm getting a laptop as a graduation present, and I keep coming back to this one. I really like the specs on it (4gb RAM + 400gb hard drive) since I do a lot of digital art and photography work, and even small things like the memory card reader. The estimated battery life is good, and most of the reviews I can find have been positive.

I was just wondering if you guys had any extra input on this- I've seen the dv4 owner's lounge, but the Special Edition seems like a fairly different computer. I want to be absolutely sure I'm making the right decision!

Oh, and Best Buy seems to have a much better deal than the HP site right now. Does this look good, or is there anything crucial I'm missing that I'd be better off custom ordering for?

Also, Windows 7. Presumably I will want to upgrade to this when it comes out. Are there any future upgrade offers I should be aware of? I seem to recall reading something about this, but I don't remember exactly what.
