HP ProBook 4720s :: Fan Will Not Go To Full Speed

May 15, 2012

I have a ProBook 4720s laptop, Windows 7 64-bit

The problem is that the fan on my computer always stays at minimum speed and as the computer heats up, the fan will not speed up to its full speed. The computer gets really hot ~70°C. The problem occurred when I upgraded bios to its latest version F.20. I believe that there is a bug with this bios- that the bios will not control the fan properly. This type of notebook has a history of bios bugs: its original bios made the fan run all the time at full speed which was fixed with a bios upgrade.
This bios came with a note that I cannot downgrade to a previous version that worked well. So my question is, can I expect a bios upgrade for this computer that would fix the error.

HP ProBook 4720s Audio :: Sound On Headphone Jack Has Very Little Dynamic Range - Music Squashed

Jun 5, 2014

Speakers in the laptop play music fine. When I use the headphone jack the music in my headphones has very little dynamic range. The music sounds squashed. The loud parts are limited and the soft parts are raised to the point that I can hear the background noise in the recording. I have never had this problem on any other PC.

I am listening to iTunes, Soundforge and any other program that has audio.

Dell :: Fan At Full Speed When Gaming

Mar 17, 2009

Since I recently upgraded to BIOS A12, my XPS 1530 fan goes at full speed when gaming, even if the temps don't go too high...

If I pause the game and go do something else for 1-2 hours, the fan will be at full speed those 1-2 hours... it is better to quit the game instead of just pausing in those cases?

HP OS/Software :: ProBook 650 G1 - C Disk Nearly Full

Apr 10, 2014

Bought this ProBook, with SSD, because I specifically wanted an SSD and Windows 7.I figured that 128Gb would be enough to run Windows and some of my graphic software, but when I booted up the computer I noticed that of the 128Gb just over 100Gb was filled with pre-installed software, much of it HP stuff.I only installed Adobe CS6, Lightroom 5 and some really light stuff, and I'm running everything else off external drives. But with continuous updates from Windows and HP software my C drive has filled up and I'm now looking at only 6Gb free space anymore. Which software I can safely delete and which is absolutely necessary to run the system?It's slightly misleading to buy a computer with 128Gb SSD only to find it nearly full with pre-installed software.

Dell :: Not Getting Full Internet Speed Over Wireless- 3945ABG

Mar 20, 2008

I have an XPS M1710 and it has the 3945ABG wireless card. Just today I upgraded my internet speed to 15Mb down. When I go to www.speedtest.net I get a result of 5Mb down.

I have tried the same test on one other laptop (not a Dell) and another desktop. None of the components involved are capable of 802.11N so I know its not that. The wireless router being used it Linksys WRT54G.

One more note, when I connect the router, or modem up directly to my NIC I will get the fill 15Mb.

Dell :: Full HD Studio 15

Jul 12, 2009

I bought the studio 15 with full HD screen and blu-ray, I have read about some people saying at full 1080 resolution, the writing is wayyyyy too small.

Is this true, and is there no way to decrease the resolution.

I thought if I am getting blu-ray I might as well get full HD screen but I don't want to get my laptop and find that the writing is tiny, and I have to use a magnifying glass to do anything.

Dell :: XPS 1330 Harddrive Nearly Full

Apr 29, 2009

This is my first post here and am new to this site.

Yesterday my XPS 1330 arrived with a 128 GB SSD. I was very impressed with startup, quietness, etc. I moved files from an external harddrive with pics and audio (totaled to 40 GB).

I then went to view the drive and saw that I had 12GB left...not even a day that I own a new laptop and my machine is nearly full. My old HP laptop still has 50GB left.

I removed the pics and that gave me 40GB left.

18.5GB is dedicated to "Dell DataSafe Local Backup..." I have no idea why this is so huge

Dell :: Connecting M1530 To Full Hd Tv

Jan 3, 2010

i have recently purchased an lg 42 inch lh3000 full hd 1080p tv to connect to my xps m1530.

i have also just downloaded the newest driver for my 8600gt.
i have linked the two with a vga cable and my problem is that i cant get it to output 1920x1080 resolution even though other people seem to be saying it is possible.

in the nvidia control panel the highest resolution i can get the laptop screen to show is 1440x900 (the native screen resolution) and with the tv plugged in the highest it will take is this same resolution.

HP/Compaq :: Battery Full: Charging Cut Off

Aug 30, 2009

I just recently bought a 12-Cell battery for my DV2730.

My original 6-Cell battery fails to charge anymore so my laptop would not power up just on battery power.

I'd like to know more on how to take better care for my new battery, and so my question is; does HP laptop, cuts off charging when battery is already full? Because i noticed that the "charge/lightning LED" does not stay ON anymore when battery is full. Is this a correct indicator? Or should i remove my battery when running on external power?

HP/Compaq :: HP Nx7400 CPU Fan Full Throttle

Dec 16, 2009

I've been using my nx7400 for more than 3 years. I undervolted it with RM Clock and it was always running around 45-52 degrees idle and 53-59 under load. The fan only kicked in under load and over 55 degrees.

I changed the CPU fan for a new one, I changed the thermal paste for MX-3 and I regularly use compressed air to clean the heat sink.

Lately, it's running full throttle in intervals even in idle and temperatures 45-50. (5-15 seconds full throttle, 10 seconds inaudible... and so on)

I could always leave it on my nightstand 24/7 as it was inaudible.
