HP/Compaq :: Native Sata Support
I have an HP dv9000 laptop.
It came with Windows Vista, at one point I was dual-booting Vista/XP, and I am currently using Windows 7beta.
I recently went in my bios settings and tried to enable native sata support, and after that, my computer wouldn't go into Win7, until i disabled it again.
It was enabled when i first got my computer, and i had to disable it for XP compatibility. I figure, if it works with Vista, there's no reason it wouldnt work with Win7. Perhaps it's configured to run without the setting, so enabling it effs it up and confuses it. is there any way i can enable it again, preferably without having to do a full OS install?

HP/Compaq :: Installing Windows XP And Enabling Native Sata ForPavillion Dv2100
installing Windows XP on my HP Pavillion Dv2100. Windows could load with Native Sata disabled but when I try to enable it, it gives me a BSOD during the Windows loading screen. I tried doing the steps on [url] and it still doesnt work.
I also tried reinstalling Windows with Native Sata enabled but it says Windows cannot detect a hard disk. Tried reinstalling using a Flash Drive with Windows installed using WinToFlash and it said "Ntldr is missing".
Dell :: Native Biometric Support Window 7 And M4400/E6400/E6500
Just logged on to dell's driver site. WOW, new drivers dated yesterday for fingerprint. Finally i'm getting native windows 7 bio support for my M4400. Downloaded and installed.
No, nothing, nada, shaite. Still no support. This is ugly. Just read online that Dell listens and now you can get Inspiron 10 with Moblin. What about business users that scream for native bio support for latitude and precisions. Dell needs to shape up on this point.
Acer :: AMD Vs Intel X64 Support For SATA/AHCI
Acer Extensa notebooks usually come with SATA drives. However, my impression is that models with Intel Core 2 Duo CPU's have built-in SATA/AHCI support in Vista, while AMD Athlon 64 X2 models do not:
- Device Manager shows the drive and controller as IDE/ATA, not SATA, even when the drive is SATA;
- there is no option in BIOS (even latest version) for switching from ATA compatibility to SATA/AHCI
It looks like AMD does not support SATA/AHCI, while AMD does not.
Sony :: SZ160p Sata 1 Or Sata 2
Has anyone installed a SSD drive in this model with success? If so, does the BIOS need to be upgraded? I have a Vertex 120 SSD drive I'm not using and am thinking about putting it in the Sony and installing Win 7/32 bit.
I would like for all the current functions to work such as the camera and video card. Would this be a big issue or should I just reload the original OS(XP).
Apple :: Activate Native Read/Write For Snow Leopard- No Need For NTFS-3g
this is how you get native support for Read/write for snow leopard running 64-bit kernal.
After a ton of frustration and jumping through hoops, I thought I'd save a few people out there some headaches.
NTFS-3G + Macfuse does not work in snow leopard 64-bit kernal If anyone got it to work I'd like to know how as I have tried everything an it doesn't work.
So here is an even better alternative.
Remember when Snow leopard was supposed to support NTFS natively out of the box? Well it does...kind of. I'm not sure what happened but Apple was working on it, but in the end decided not to activate it. Kinda almost like the ipod touch with the camera.
Before you can do anything, you must completely uninstall NTFS-3G and Macfuse. Heres on how to uninstall.
Q 2.3. How can I uninstall MacFUSE?
A: Launch the Mac OS X System Preferences application and go to the MacFUSE preference pane. Click on the "Remove MacFUSE" button. This will uninstall all MacFUSE components except the preference pane itself.
You can keep the MacFUSE preference pane around should you decide to install MacFUSE again in the future. If you do wish to remove it, you do it just like how you would remove any other non-Apple preference pane: In System Preferences, control-click (right-click) on the MacFUSE icon and you will see "Remove ..." as an action............
HP/Compaq :: HDX 16T Sata Controller

HP/Compaq :: PATA Or SATA Blu-Ray DVD Drive
I am having problems with some Blu-Ray DVDs in my DV9774ca with a optiarc BC-5500A ATA.
When I put some Blu-Ray DVDs in the drive starts to spin and makes the normal searching noises for 30 seconds and then it stops without doing anything at all.
I decided to try download a firmware update, but the site says not to flash SATA drives with PATA firmware.
How can I find out what it is? I can only assume its SATA. The firmware I found is for PATA!
Also I assume that the firmware I already have is older than the downloadable version (not from H.P.). The downloadable version is 1.05 from November/08. I bought my laptop in Feb/08.
HP/Compaq :: Trying To Install Xp Over Vista No Sata Option
I have a HP DV2000 (BIOs states it is a 2500) that I am trying to install XP over vista.
I have gone into the bios to disable the SATA but there is no option to do so. I do have a external floppy to use. I thought I was computer savy but am feeling kinda dumb. Should I start with a flash? What model am I actually working on, 2000 or 2500.
HP/Compaq :: HP Dv5t XP Installation BSoD Correct Sata Drivers
how to slipstream sata drivers onto Windows XP installation disk I decided to try it out. I had two unsuccessful attempts and I'm wondering that it probably is due to me using the wrong drivers for the job.
I have a Dv5t 1135ee, can anybody please direct me to the right drivers that I need to put onto my Windows XP installtion disk to not get a BSoD.
HP/Compaq :: EliteBook 8530p- E-SATA Port Does Not Recognize HDD (Vista 32)
OS is Vista x86 32-bit.
We couldn't for the life of us get the Seagate HDD recognized when plugged inside the eSATA port. Worked fine via the alternative IEEE1394 connector, though. The "super-duper" trick recommended by the manufacturer, consisting of mere rescanning drives with the HDD manager in Computer Management did not effect in anything. Nor did installation of Intel's hard drive manager (which came with a driver update under the veil)
But the dealer whom he bought the HDD from insisted that the HDD worked fine via eSATA, so it doesn't appear to be a hardware problem, nor could a defective cable be the culprit, since he used the very same.
HP/Compaq :: HP Tech Support
I have been VERY happy with the tech support that I have received form HP. I had some problems with the speaker on my DV7t-2000, and the HP tech support has been very helpful. They originally told me (after a phone conversation/attempted fix) that they would be sending me a box to send the computer in for a fix. I just got off the phone with them, and they told me that they will be sending a new version with updated specifications, mainly a 2.26ghz quad core processor (up from a 2.4ghz dual core), and 500gb worth of hard drive space (up from 320gb). They will also be giving me a fingerprint scanner and a more powerful wireless card.
All in all, I have to say that they have been FANTASTIC. I have heard horror stories about HP, but they seem to be just fine.
HP/Compaq :: Does Mydv3t Support 5.1 Speakers

Soundcard to USB:
I looked at the 7 channel USB device just in case later down the road I want to upgrade to a 7.1. For now, I want to use the 5.1 speakers in my dorm room. Also, I am running Windows 7 Home Premium. Will these speakers with the soundcard work just as if I had them in a desktop?
HP/Compaq :: Will The DV4T Support Wireless N 5ghz
I just received a HP DV4T laptop that I purchased direct from HP. When the laptop was ordered one of the upgrades was an "Intel Wireless-N card with Bluetooth" Upon receiving and configuring the laptop I have discovered that what was actually installed was an Intel Wifi 1000 adapter, which only operates in the 2.4ghz frequency range. After getting transferred around HP for a while basically they could not tell me if this was a mistake or just what they offer (their website is very vague on what "wireless-N" adapter you get). They offered to either credit me for the $25 upgrade or I could return the laptop. I elected to get the credit as I am otherwise happy with the laptop.
I can easily replace the wi-fi card; however does anyone on this forum know if the laptop has the proper antenna to make use of a wireless N card that transmits on the 5ghz (and 2.4ghz) bands?
HP/Compaq :: HP Dv6408nr Support SataII Transfur Rate
I have a HP dv6408nr that needs a hard drive. I have found a Seagate Momentus 7200.4 500GB. I have searched on Google for days and i have yet to find a definitive answer if my computer actually supports the 3GB/s transfer rate that new hdd is capable of. I do know that the drive i have is a 1.5GB/s however i have not checked it for a jumper. The hdd that my lappy shipped with has the 1.5GB/s transfer rate.

HP/Compaq :: DVD Drive Connected To Laptop With Sata To Esata Cable, Drive Is Not Recognized By Windows 7
I connected a dvd drive to my laptop using, a sata to esata cable. my laptop has a ESATA port.
I don't know if you should post some kind of config summary (if yes let me know, I will do it promptly) basically I have a HP DV6t quad edition with an Intel 5 serie chipset,
PM55 express chipset (dont really know if it make any sense but still, I will just say state it) so I installed Intel Matrix Storage and when I connect the drive I can see it, but windows 7 does not see it, it's like I didn't plug anything in. [url] also my bios is almost configurable, I don't know why I can change the time, the date, the admin password, the boot order, virtualization, fan on/off that's pretty much it. so what options do I have if I want to make this dvd drive work?
HP/Compaq :: HP Software Support For "older" Models
I have a DV5 1010tx, just over 12 months old. While I appreciate this is now considered an old model, I have found the support from HP in providing updates to drivers & software to be appalling. While I'm happy to locate newer versions myself, I'm sure there are many who haven't the experience to do this. For example, the video drivers provided for Win7 are from 2008, and interestingly are not compatible with HP Media DVD for playing BluRay.
Is this simply laziness on part of HP? I don't expect support for my product forever, but at least 2 or 3 years is reasonable.
Dell :: M1710 And New HD (sata 3gb/s)

i assume i'd still be stuck with 1.5gbps throughput, but that doesn't matter, i just want a larger drive.

Dell :: Inpiron 1520 SATA HDD
Recently, I ordered Dell Inspiron 1520 with the following main specifications:
Intel Core 2 Dou T7500 2.2-GHz CPU
2x1 GB 667-MHz RAM
nVidia 8600GT 256-MB GDDR2 GPU
Fujitsu 160-MB SATA 5400-RPM HDD
Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premuim OS
Anyway, at the beginning I was really disappointed with the performance; the system was too slow specially during booting, loading, and playing games. Furthermore, when the notebook is on battery, the performance was terrible; I even can't watch movies smoothly or explore the hard drive normally.
So, I entered the BIOS, load the defaults, no improvements!
Then, after too many calls/chats with Dell technical support, someone asked me to update the BIOS, then I update it, but again there were no improvements.
Finally, I got the right man from Dell support, and he suggested to change a BIOS setting, which is the "SATA Operation" and set it to "ATA" rather than "ACHI". Then, I entered the BIOS (which is the new version "A03"), and went to the "SATA Operation" option then I saw the default factory is set to "ATA" where I am sure that it was "ACHI" as a default factory with the previous BIOS version. Anyway, I set it to "ATA" and I had to disable also the "Flash Cache Module" to do so. Then finally, the system performance improved and everything seems to be normal.
Now, my questions are:
Did I lost the "SATA" feature/performance of my hard drive (because I set it to "ATA")?
If I do lost the "SATA" feature/performance, is there any workaround solution to make the "SATA Operation" as "ACHI" and system remails OK (e.g.: installing new storage/interface drivers to the OS)?
Why in the new BIOS, the "SATA Operation" default factory is set to "ATA" not as like the previous version were the default is "ACHI"?
Is there anybody faced the same problem as mine? If so, how did he solve it?
Is this one of Dell disadvantages/faults?
Dell :: XPS M1340 SCSI Or SATA ?
I ran the other diagnostic accessed prior to boot up and it reports SMART is good.
I have an ST950042 0ASG. The Bios reports eSATA-NONE. Device manager reports it as SCSI. Anyone know what is going on.
I hate to call Dell at this point for fear they will automatically want to replace the HD or even try to have me send my laptop in.
I read somewhere that a 1640 user had a similar scenario going on and that they removed the Nvidia drivers and used the Win7 generic. How do I know what drive I really have.
Is this a on going problem. The drive is suppose to be a 500GB 7200rpm SMART drive.
Dell :: SATA Via Thumb Drive
Been trying to get all my ducks in a row for when my 1510 arrives, DLing drivers and such.
Been reading some old threads/how tos here on doing a fresh install of Windows XP. It was suggested to put the SATA drivers on a bootable flash drive for installation during the Windows install, so you would be in AHCI mode when finished and not have to try to do it later.
Is that the current method of installing the SATA drivers for AHCI?
Dell :: XPS M1210 SATA Drivers?
I am preparing to help my cousin (via phone) reinstall XP on his ebay purchased XPS M1210 laptop.
I notice that in the system config information, that the HDD is SATA, but when looking at the driver download page, I see no SATA drivers listed.
How are we to install XP without SATA drivers to slipstream or use the F6 disk?
Do i get the drivers fron Intel? Do I change a setting in the BIOS for "ATA" or "legacy" mode? If i do this,
then where do i get the driver to install within XP so i can switch it back when the installation is complete
Acer :: Travelmate 5710 SATA

Dell :: Reinstall XP Pro SP2 W SATA For Vostro 1500
My wife has a 3-year old Vostro 1500 running Xp Pro, Sp3, and it was somewhat messed up (wouldn't accept Windows updates, the Firewall stopped working, and couldn't be turned on even with administrative tools, stopped being accessible on the network, etc.).
So, I backed up everything 3 times, including a drive image, and wanted to reinstall XP using the Dell XP SP2 disk.
I removed the Dell Mediacenter partition, but left the first (small) partition. I reformatted the remaining partition as NTFS, and installed XP. Despite the fact that the Dell disk contained the SATA drivers, when I looked in Device Manager, I found that the HD was seen as an IDE drive, and not a SATA drive .......
Dell :: D620 Doesn't Like New SATA Harddrive
Trying to run a D620 with a new harddrive, a 320 GB WD3200BEVT.
The 620 will say "a read error occurred, press Ctrl alt del to reboot" directly after post. I doesn't not attempt to load an OS.
In the BIOS:I made sure that the harddrive password protection thing is all off
In the device list the 320 GB drive appears, so it's not a mechanical problem
The drive works on a modern AM2 desktop.
