HP OS/Software :: Envy J011dx - Control Keys Not Working / Win8 To Win7 Downgrade

May 22, 2014

I have an HP Envy j011dx that came with Windows 8 Home Edition(64b9t). I put in an SSD and upgraded the ram and installed Win 7 Pro(64bit). Everything is working great except the control keys don't work.  When I hit the left ctrl, I get, [9- and the right ctrl, I get, l; I have searched and tried a few different drivers and have looked at some posts about downgrading to 7 and haven't seen anything on this issue. I have ran all windows updates and tried several different drivers. I put the old HD in with W8 and it works so it isn't a hardware issue. I originally looked at this post before doing the downgrade and it gave me the confidence to move forward with putting Win7 on. I have until Friday to take this back to the store if I can't get it working. I have also checked the region/language settings.

HP Envy SleekBook 6-1153eo OS/Software :: Enable AHCI In Windows 8 / BIOS

Feb 14, 2013

My computer:
HP Envy Sleekbook 6 - 1153eo
Windows 8 Pro
AHCI is currently disabled on my computer and I wish to enable it to get the most performance out of it. It can easily be enabled via the windows registry but to get it working i need to be sure that AHCI is currently enabled in the BIOS aswell. When I enter the BIOS there just isnt any advanced options available, only time and date and other basics. How do i find out wether or not AHCI is enabled in the BIOS? How do i get access to the advanced options in the BIOS to turn on AHCI (if it isnt already enabled that is)?

Apr 17, 2009

I made a previous fan about the issue I had with Dell's managment of the fan settings. In an attempt to combat this, I thought I'd try installing a previous BIOS to see if it fixes the problem (perhaps there was an alternative fan managment setup).

Dell :: Upgrade From 3 To 4gb With M1330 & Win7?

May 3, 2009

I currently have 3gb of Corsair Ram(2gb+1gb) on a M1330, 2.2ghz, 120gb hdd, with Win 7.

I know Vista only recognized 3.2gb RAM with video ram/system resources eating some ram. Does Win 7 recognize the full 4gb?

I am trying to maximize performance for photo editing and would like to know if I should bother upping the memory to 4gb. I heard putting in same RAM chips(2gbx2gb) will allow dual-channel performance. Is the speed difference using dual-channel noticeable?

Sony :: Can't Upgrade To Win7 On A Z Series

Aug 8, 2009

I have the new Win7 disks from MSDN (pro and ultimate). Tried multiple times yesterday to upgrade my Z690 from Vista. Uninstalled all of the conflicting drivers/programs, it goes all the way through the install process, gets to the point where it copies over the old files, but then abruptly restarts and uses the Rollback program to get me into Vista again.

I tried 4 times, same result each time. Anyone have an idea if there's something I can do get this machine upgraded?

A clean install is not an option, too many programs I can't find the disks to...

HP/Compaq :: How Do I Preactivate My Win7 Upgrade

Nov 13, 2009

When i was on vista i used orev's activation backup and restore whenever i made a clean vista install. Now when i got the windows 7 upgrade from HP i have no idea how to do the same. For now it's activated with the win7 home premium key on the upgrade dvd. Does anyone have any idea how to preactivate win7 hp?

As i understand 3 things are necessary for preactivation:

1. SLIC 2.1 bios with key - Got it
2. HP OEM certificate for win7 - Missing
3. HP OEM-SLP key for win7 home premium - Missing i think

I guess i need the hp oem certificate and hp oem-slp key for win7 homepremium - can i contact HP for it or can a good sole on this forum email me a copy?

Dell :: Inspiron 9300 Replacement Board Can I Downgrade The Bios?

Apr 10, 2009

this is my first post so a quick hi to all of you and thankyou for many solutions in the past which have spanned from this forum.

Well i have had to bite the bullet and register so i can ask you guys for help...the story goes...

Ok i receive a laptop Dell Inspiron 9300 from a friend who has dropped it (well he says the kid knocked it off the couch and then to add insult to injury he followed it over and landed on it) well needless to say i diagnosed that the motherboard had failed as i ran the system from a barbones state to rule out any hardware failures. So i ordered a replacement board from the big old bad Ebay guy that hangs around the internet...So i rebuild the laptop plug it all in and turn it on.. so far so good i see the Dell logo and select to enter the bios to which i see "entering setup"... now instead of going into the setup i receive only this...
"The ac power adapter cannot be determined. The system can only boot with a 130w power adapter or greater" .....

I am looking at upgrading the memory in my Vosto 1500. It currently has 667mhz memory in it (came with the laptop). My processor is a T7100, a 800mhz processor. If I get 800mhz memory, will it recognize it and run it at 800mhz?

Also, while I am here, has anyone upgraded to a SSD drive in place of the stock HDD? Will the bios accept it? Laptop was purchased in 2007, and I am on the original A01 bios

Sony :: Optical Drive Reads DVDs, But Not The Win7 Upgrade

May 8, 2010

I have a Sony VGN-AR38G.

I have upgraded the HDD and RAM 2 months ago after a hardisk failure.

Current specs as follows:
Intel Core2 CPU T7400@2.16GHz
Nvidia GeForce Go 7600 GT
2x2G RAM
2x320G HDD

Optical Drive: Mata BD-MLT UJ-210S ATA Device
In device manager it says the device is working properly.
Current driver version is 6.0.6001.18000, which should be the latest (Ver1.06)

The laptop was purchased in June 2007. Broke Dec 2009 due to hardisk failure. Then I upgraded some hardwares (HDD & RAM), reinstalled Vista Home Premium (Burnt disk) then upgraded to Win7 (Retail disk).

Then 2 weeks ago, I left it on battery only, thought it would go into hybernation when the battery drains, however I had a nasty system loss, basically all I had was the Vaio logo and BIOS info, not even F8. So had to reinstall the system. Did pretty much the same thing as before, except I did the firmware upgrade of the optical drive, which I don't recall doing the last time. Then, I'm stuck with the Win7 upgrade.

Sony :: Vaio SZ 4 Series Fan Replacement And Wifi + Processor Upgrade (Win7 + Ubuntu Feedback)

Nov 25, 2009

I had replaced mobo on my dead SZ 4 series (don't ask why) and couldn't stop there since I was in the move thus consequently contemplated about possible upgrades. For now I settled for fan, WLAN card and CPU upgrade. If it works well, I might install SSD also.

1.Fan Modification

As you all proud SZ owners know, fan is very noisy on this machines so it made me think if there is any possible modification to reduce the noise. Since the BIOS is controlling it there is not much to do on the RPM part (in win at least, but more on that later) I settled for a fan and fan casing swap from SZ 4 to SZ 7 series.

In the photos you can see that fans, fan casings and heat-sinks are of different design. Besides design differences, voltage and the amperage are the same, 5V-300mA.

Only way was to install the fan and the casing of the SZ 7 heat-sink to my old one as one of the heat-sinks bolt bushings is off for a few millimeters.

There has to be some care exercised when prying off the fan casing, some heating was required from the aluminium side on three pins were casing is attached.

Not to be simple, the difference is also in the inlet hole. One on the SZ 7 heat-sink is bigger and off centre compared to SZ 4s. Had to do some filing there, to match it to the size of the new fan. Fan of SZ7 is not bigger, it is due to different design of the fan eye and its volutes...................

Sony :: BIOS Error After RAM Upgrade

Jun 24, 2009

I had recently upgraded my RAM (laptop in sig.) from 2GB to 4GB. Now, once in a while when I boot up, a POST BIOS "Error 0232: Extended RAM failed at address line 21" error message is displayed. I can then either boot normally or enter the BIOS setup and the OS (Win 7 64-bit) is working normally and recognizes all 4GB of RAM. I dual boot with Vista 32-bit, which uses 3GB of RAM.

I did the Windows Memory diagnostic upon boot up and it didn't find any error with the memory. I searched online without any conclusive solution.

Dell :: XPS 1640 A14 BIOS Upgrade Failed, Now What?

Apr 4, 2010

So I tried updating my BIOS to version A14, the current one on Dell's site. Running Windows 7 Ultimate 64, btw. It seemed to update fine, but when it restarted, I got a black screen.

I waited about 20 minutes, powered off, then back on. It booted into Windows, now however my keyboard does not work. Most keys do not work, and the ones that do produce incorrect characters.

Also, whenever I restart Windows, it does not reboot. It will hang at a black screen until I power off and back on. Currently typing this on a USB keyboard.

When I go into setup, it does say version A14, so I'm assuming it went through, but for some reason is not compatible with my system. Can I downgrade to fix this, and if so, where can I find an older BIOS version?

Acer :: BIOS V3238 UPGRADE For 6930G

Nov 29, 2009

I am looking for advice on upgrading my BIOS from v0.3204 to v3238. Current Laptop Setup:

Original BIOS v0.3204

Acer 6930G - T6400, 4GB DDR2 and 9600MGT 1GB Graphics GPU.
Plus the usual Hidden Acer Recovery Partitions.

I am currently using VISTA SP2 32bit but I plan to soon install Windows 7 64bit FULL CLEAN INSTALL.

The global acer website currently doesn't list my current BIOS (v0.3204) but does list a new BIOS of v3238 released NOV 2009.


1. Is my laptop compatible with BIOS v3238 ?
2. Is it worth upgrading the BIOS to v3238 ?
3. Is BIOS v3238 needed for Windows 7 - 64bit to run better
4. Will VISTA SP2 still work with BIOS v3238

Additionally, if you look in the acer Bios zip file there is also a DOS folder containing the file zk2_3238.exe (eg DOSzk2_3238.exe).

5. Is it therefore best to create a DOS Boot USB DISK and Flash the Bios using the DOS EXE given above (since I have heard bad things about windows flash)?
6. And finally, once the new Bios v3238 has been flashed/upgraded, do you need to do anything else for the Laptop to function as an Acer Laptop (eg will it recognise everything)?
