HP Pavilion Dv9628 :: Why 2 OS Partitions On Laptop Running Vista Home Premium

Aug 27, 2014

I was just checking my wife's older HP Pavilion dv9628nr running Vista Home Premium with 2 HDD's.  I didn't even know it had 2 HDD's.  I opened the case to make sure.
 
Below is a screenshot of Disk Management for this system.  I have some questions:
 
1. Why is there an OS partition on each HDD?
 
2. Are 2 needed and can one be deleted?

Dell :: Vista Home Premium- 2GB Vs. 4GB

Dec 20, 2007

I have been searching all over various forums and tech sites for an answer. Currently I have 2 GB of ram in my 1520 that's running Home Premium. I've done a clean install after adding the 1 GB Turbo Cache module. It was only about $30.00 and figured worth the risk to try for performance gains. I haven't felt much there.

Does anyone have any positive feedback on performance when upgrading from 2 GB to 4 GB of RAM? I am running 32 BIT and don't care that the full 4 GB are not recognized. I don't want to waste money unless it will make some difference.

Aside from the clean install, I've been using X-Setup Pro, Tweak UAC and TweakIV for optimizing the settings for a little speed. I've also tweaked the services according to Black Viper's web site. The software tweaking has helped immensely.

I appreciate anyone's feedback on upgrading to 4 GB of ram. Sorry if this has been an old discussion getting beat up once again. However, prices are right around $75.00 for 4 GB of G Skill from Newegg.

Dell :: Need A Reinstallation Disc For Vista Home Premium

Feb 15, 2010

Dell never gave my girlfriend a disc to re-install Vista.

Actually... I'm playing the role of Tech Support Guy (even speaking to her with a difficult-to-understand Indian accent!!).

She had a crash, so I used VistaPE to get her data off of the computer. Now, I wanna restore Vista to the original factory settings. Sounds easy enough... use f8, right?

Wrong... it won't work in my case. The recovery partition is still there... I just can't access it. The operating system won't boot up at all. I used a non-Dell Vista Home Premium disc to access the Vista System Recovery option, but that doesn't help. I can't get at Dell's recovery partition.

I figure if I had a re-installation disc that's actually from Dell, I could access Vista's System Recovery feature that includes the Dell option to restore the computer to the original factory settings. Problem is, I can't get ahold of one.

Does anybody know where I can find one without going directly to the Dell website? I think Dell has the worst customer service on the planet and I would pay someone to hit me in the head with a sledgehammer before I'd spend one dollar on a Dell product. I've been scouring the internet for two days and can't seem to find a stray copy of what I need.

The computer came factory-installed with the 32-bit (x86) Windows Vista Home Premium.

Yeah... you read that right: a DELL with VISTA!! Could it get any worse?!

This whole thing is driving me bat-sh*t crazy.

I hate Dell... I thank you all in advance for any help that you can give.

Maybe someone would be so kind as to post an .iso image of their own disc?!

HP/Compaq :: To Upgrade Home Premium Vista To W7 Ultimate + SD

Oct 27, 2009

I'm one of those people that purchased a notebook during the free Vista to W7 upgrade period so I'm eligible for the no cost W7 upgrade. However, I would also like to additionally upgrade from Home Premium to W7 Ultimate now that it's available.

What would be the most efficient and economical route to combine all these upgrades and include a student discount? Is there a way to do this so that I only have to upgrades once?

HP Audio :: G60-535DX / Windows 7 Home Premium - Internal Microphone Inaudible

Dec 26, 2009

I am having problems with the internal microphone located at the top of the display on the HP G60 notebook PC, pre-loaded with the Windows 7 Home Premium operating system.  All OS, PC drivers and system ROM have been updated to current.
 
The sound it produces is at best barely audible or usually completely inaudible.  This is true when I use the internal Sound Recorder app as well as when I try to utilize Windows Live and Skype for either audio or video calls.  The fact it behaves this way using Sound Recorder proves it has nothing to do with firewalls or internet latency.  Also, I can hear and see the people I'm trying to communicate with just fine.
 
I first noticed the problem on an HP G60t system I purchased from hpshopping.com in early December 2009, which was a custom build and shipped to me.   I opened a case with support and they told me I would have to ship it back for repair or I could just return it.  I returned it.
 
Figuring I was just unlucky enough to get a bad system, I then went to Best Buy in late December 2009 and bought a second HP G60, this time a G60-535DX, which was similarly configured.  Guess what?  The exact same problem.
 
I have been researching these HP support forums and the customer reviews posted at bestbuy.com for the HP G60.  It seems many people are having the exact same problems.  I have tried all of the suggestions I have found, including the following, but nothing changes the fact the microphone quality on two HP G60 notebooks purchased from separate retail outlets / inventories is extremely poor and essentially non functional.
 
Updated HP Drivers and ROMUpdated Windows softwareUninstalled Conexant Pebble High Definition SmartAudio driver in Device Manager, then reinstalledUnplugged and removed battery, pressed power for 60 seconds, reassembledAdjusted Conexant Pebble High Definition SmartAudio driver property settings, including changing the Default Format, Exclusive Mode and Signal Enhancement settings.

Acer :: Calling All SamaritansMy Extensa 4420-5237 Will Not Complete A Vista Home Premium (retail) Installation

Jun 21, 2009

This is a laptop without Recovery Discs, where the original drive partitions were erased and reformatted as 1 big partition. During Vista installation, it always reboots just as Vista is on the verge of "Completing Installation". So near and yet so far. The BIOS shows the hard drive as an IDE drive - even though this is clearly a SATA drive. Is this a driver problem? Do I need to load SATA drivers before having Vista go through the installation?

Sony :: Upgrade From Home Premium 64 To Ultimate 64 On Z690

I recently purchased the new VGN-Z690 and thought i would save some money by ordering it with the Home Premium (64bit) OS since I already had Vista Ultimate disks. I went to do an upgrade by installing the Ultimate disks, but the option to upgrade was greyed out.

The only option was to do a clean install, which I want to avoid due to all the other software that is on it already.

Dell Inspiron 1546 - How To Reinstall Windows 7 Home Premium

Oct 22, 2011

I installed some windows updates to my computer. The next time I turned on my computer it didn't act normal at all. It went to a start-up repair screen which scanned for a long time only to tell me "start-up repair cannot fix this computer" so I shut down and left my computer. I called Dell's support line and talked with technical assistance, the guy had me run some tests and in the end told me that there was nothing wrong with the hard drive and that it was my systems software that was the problem. didn't wanna restore at that point because wanted to save my pictures.

I ended up taking the hard drive out, transferring pictures onto my brothers computer and then I did a full system restore ( by tapping f8, choosing repair my PC, then choosing "Dell data safe restore and emergency backup" in the system recovery options screen. ) This actually worked and I restored my computer, however after installing updates again (quite a few too, when I shut down my computer it said installing update 1 of 72?! )

My computer went back to the start up repair screen and did the same thing as before. restored my computer one more time, and now again after updates were installed my computer will not work correctly. I do have the windows product key under the battery but would like to know how I can fix this problem. Will have to reinstall my windows software?

Acer :: Aspire 9500 (audio) Sound Did Not Work Properly

Jun 5, 2009

I have a problem with the audio. I reinstal the O.S. because my laptop was working slow, and because the sound did not work properly. Everything affter instalation works fine, just the audio doen't work properly, it sounds...hesitating

I thought the problem was the cpu temperatures... 60-65 idle, and just open a few windows it reachs at 75-80, and stay in this temps.

Notebook Hardware Control, lets make undervolting. So I make some test... and just when the cpu loads at 100% the audio works properly, clean and perfect. If cpu loads under 80% the audio sounds... but defective, not clean...
