HP Pavilion G6 Display :: How To Decrease Huge Type Size In Gmail
Aug 12, 2014
The print size in gmail is huge (about two words on the screen). When the laptop was new the problem was that the size of print in gmail was too small. I looked up the problem on the web and the solution was to push a certain key (like shift, ctrl or fn) and at the same time push the + key till the desired size was reached. I have been looking for the similar procedure to decrease the huge type size, to no avail.
Recently my brand new studio 17 updated, about a week later I noticed that 50GB had gone missing! I of course called tech support to see if they could help (good luck) after spending hours on the phone they could not really solve the issue, asides from doing a factory reset.
Now again I am having this issue again, once Vista updated it is slowly eating away hard drive space. There is currently 31.4GB being used (yes, this includes all hidden files) on a 450GB hard drive, yet the system reports only 402 GB free space. Each day it decreases about 2-4 GBs ......
i would really like some help in resolving a major problem I'm having with my inspiron 1520 display size/resolution.
I somehow managed to change the settings when typing in my password upon log-in and now the icons and screen text is too large for the desktop and overall appearance. Not sure which hotkey i activated but cannot revert back to the normal settings.
Purchased Probook 4530S. Win 7. I keep having teh screen print/size resolutiom change when using the touchpad. The pointer seems to "stick" and then when I move it, the screen will either get very smaller or larger. I continually have to hit ctrl + or - to get the screen size back to "normal". Is this something to do with the touchpad settings or pointer?
I'd like to run Pro Evolution Soccer in my envy 15 jt100. However, the game checks the default graphic memory size and the default value is 32M, which is so small that the game just won't run even if the overall performance is enough for this game... Is there any way to increase the default graphic memory size?
I need to update my Pavilion laptop BIOS. I try to update by downloading driver (SP50879) but when I run this package, on Insyde Flash v4.0.0 form, I have an error : CE file Size input error! my windows is 8.1 64bit.
I recently had an HDX16 and tried out a DM3, but ended up returning the DM3 because I simply wanted a bigger and more powerful setup. Well, I had gone through 3 previous HDX16s because of various issues. Now I get one of the last ones they made (I got it about a week ago but was out of town for Thanksgiving.) Anyways, there's a huge crack in the plastic on the long roundish bar that connects the screen to the laptop. I don't know what to do. I can call, but they can't even send out another replacement, as the 16 doesn't exist anymore. To me the DV6/7/8 series isn't even comparable in my mind. What does everyone think I should do? I get the feeling they'll offer me say $50 which isn't worth the crack. I mean to me $200 is about where I'd say I'd be okay. But even then, I'll use it every day and think of the crack.....
I recently bought a Lenovo Flex 2-15 (Intel Core i5-4210U, 8GB RAM) and have had troubles with browsing pretty much ever since (though it got worse in the last few days). I can't access GMail (stuck with "Loading..."), images load incompletely (some don't show up, missing parts in others etc), songs on Hypem only load the first two or three seconds instead of the whole song - and the list goes on.
I usually use Chrome but I've tried Firefox and Internet Explorer - and the problems persists. How to enjoy browsing again? This situation is unbearable. I recently even switched to my smartphone for browsing and writing emails.
I recently updated a whole bunch of things on my T520, and afterwards experienced a significant slowdown in everything -- startup time as well as just general work. There's often a long lag when opening programs or documents, right clicking, etc. Part of this seems to be due to higher CPU usage. While idling (i.e. just sitting on my desktop) and looking at Task Manager, CPU usage seems higher than normal on some things -- SynTPEnh.exe will consume 3-8% of CPU, one instance of svchost.exe will take up to 10%, etc. My total idling CPU usage is generally 15-25% now. (I have a quad-core i7.) Also, my battery life dropped precipitously; it used to be upwards of 5 hours on a full charge when just doing general web browsing and word processing, but now it's less than 2 hours.
Going around in Process Explorer and Task Manager, I've found a few things that seemed somewhat unusual: A lot of my processes have many page faults -- slightly under 15 minutes after starting up my computer, SynTPEnh.exe has about 250,000, SimpleTap.exe has over 50,000, the instance of svchost.exe with the Base Filtering Engine, Diagnostic Policy Services, and Windows Firewall has about 250,000, and Process Explorer itself has about 250,000. There were also some items that seemed like they might be taking up more memory (Private Bytes, in Process Explorer) than they should -- dwm.exe is using about 150 MB, and SimpleTap.exe is using about 115 MB. Also, my CPU percentage of Interrupts jumps around, most of the time staying between 2-5%.
I cannot adjust the brightness of my display using the Fn keys or the Control Panel... I have already had to replace my battery once... I need to be able to adjust the brightness in order save my battery life!
I am running Win 8.1 x64 (up-to-date) on HP Pavilion 1322TX laptop. There are Intel HD Graphics 3000 and ATM Radeon HD 7450M two graphic cards as the device manager window. Recently I am getting blue screens and later message appear saying the ATM driver stopped working. I found many problems with this driver in the past as well. When I check the relevent page for my laptop model, there is no update since 2012..
Can I update these two drivers seperately by getting updates from Intel and AMD sites?
Is there any update for catalyst control system (CCC) ?
When I try to update through the CCC or HP Support Assist, it is always no updates..
I changed my operating system from WINDOWS 7 ULTIMATE 32 BIT TO WINDOWS 7 ULTIMATE 64 BIT,and the problem is after changing OS my laptop is not displaying Brightness bar. Brightness is increasing and decreasing but it is not showing bright bar.
Any driver i have to install ? if required then driver download link.
for some reason the on screen display meter for my volume when pressing on the keyboard suddenly disappeared, I would like to get this back. I found this thread in the forum URL.... which another was having the same problem I'm having. The only difference is that I'm using HP Pavilion G7 with Windows 7.
The monitor on my HP Pavilion dv9830us laptop has not been working for some time and I have had to use an external CRT monitor for my display. A couple nights ago, my operating system (Ubuntu Linux 10.04) failed to load and because I can't get video feed to my external monitor until the video drivers on Ubuntu loads, I am unable to run Ubuntu's repair feature and the beginning of boot.
Is there a way I can get my laptop to use my external monitor at all times, even at the BIOS screen? Is there a setting in BIOS for this?
I have a pavilion dv6 6190se and I cant find an update of display driver in HP support and when i download the update from AMD site it doesn't work. the latest update on this site is v8.882 and i doesn't support win8 and it goes back to 2011-11-18. is there any way to update it?
One of our employees has an HP Pavilion G6 laptop. He uses an external display at work but has to keep the screen of the laptop open. If he closes the screen, then the video to the external display is power off.
What are the settings to allow the laptop screen to be closed and still be able to get video to an external display.
My screen is no longer good so im trying to connect a external display.Been trying for hours trying to get the external display to work of boot.Ive tryed everything changing 2 sets of hd cables and svga cables. The function key. The Laptop does recognize the display but seems to go into powersave mode or something.The only way i can get the external display to work is if i pull the battery and wait a bit then power up the display will work with a notice on the screen that cmos will be reset to defaults then restarts and back to where i was again.Pavilion dm4-1160us.
Not sure whether the highest resolution will be too small for my liking -- if I get the 1920x1080 screen can I decrease the resolution without any problems if it turns out I don't like the highest resolution?
my UMBP got way too damn hot. and was getting tired of the heat. So I started out just taking the bottom of the notebook case off and blowing it out. Then I started looking at it more closely, the fans have no direct access to fresh air intake. Yes I know the speakers/keyboard are meant for that. But the tinkerer in me fired up the drill press and with a 11/32 bit started making some small holes areound the fan intake and ram. Well my MBP now runs so much cooler before I was running 44-55C on mbp just idling and light web browsing. No I am so so happy to say my MBP is running at 35-40C. That is significant decrease in temps.
I have been playing with nvidia powermizer but as soon as i started scrolling down webpages, the gpu temp would increase. So i requested help and was referred to this thread: [How To] Use Rivatuner as a better "Powermizer" alternative
I followed the instructions but i was still getting mid 60's degress celcius on my gpu(i set it on low power 2d). I wasn't quite satisfied. After considerable research i found out a program called lubbo's fan control. There was a previous version released which was a fiasco. However, i noticed something. That one had a releae date of 20-jan-2010. I decided to try it and wow!! That is a keeper!!! I can select the maximum rpm of my fans, the minimum rpm. I can even go below 2000rpm (But i didnt risk it). The most interesting feature is that i can select what us the maximum temperature i want my system to be. I chose 60c and now, while i'm typing this, my gpu is reading 56c. That's the first time i'm getting a steady sub 60 temp. It isnt going less and it isnt going more than 56c. My fans rpm are at 5000 but while listening to a music or even using it without music, it isnt that disturbing. Also, it will kill your keyboard manager. Who cares and who needs it. We can control the keyboard from the bootcamp manager.
One last thing that i will add is that this software detects both gpu's (9400m + 9600m), a proof that the apple guys are being lazy to provide the gpu switching software. Tested working in w7. To make it start everytime you log on, just create a task and schedule it to run when you have logged on.
I've noticed a considerable decrease in battery life of my 2008 Macbook white after the 2009.001 security update. Earlier I used to get around 4 - 4.5 hours on normal usage, but its down by about an hour now. Its only around 9 months old, and the battery cycles is just 20.
