Pavilion dv4 - 1228 portable ca - unrecognized mSATA

Hi guys:

I had little critical m4 mSATA SSD 32 GB. Pluged in there and... Oops... it was not recognized by the BIOS or the operating system [Vista] on my old Pavilion dv4 laptop - 1228ca... What gives? Any advice is welcome...

Where you plug it in? Page 65 of this manual... the WWAN slot?


I do not think that the slot will work with a WSSD... it's only for WWAN. I don't think that your phone is configured to accept a card of the WSSD.

  • Notebook Pavilion DV4 correct replacement charger?

    I have a Pavilion DV4 laptop, which came with a charger 65W.

    I broke the charger and bought a replacement of OEM HP (part #KG298AA) brand listed compatibility with portable computers dm1 HP Pavilion dm3, tm2, dv2, dv3, dv4, dv5, dv, 6, dv7 and tx2.  In other words, mine.

    However, this is a 90W, vice the 65W charger charger, with that the laptop came.  It seems to connect and load OK, but I don't want to fry the laptop because the output is too high.

    Is the charger 90W really compatible with the Pavilion DV4, as argued in the box?

    Yes the laptop will draw only what suits him. Watts is volts times amps. You always want to use an adapter that has the same voltage and at least the same amps, but if it's higher amps which is OK, as long as the connection is the same. The highest amps will charge the battery more quickly but otherwise don't show no difference in the actual use.

  • HP Pavilion dv4-1120br: doubts about the BIOS update for my model with the operating system current instaled.


    I have a HP Pavilion dv4-1120br, I know that this model of HP laptop is old, but I instaled the 64 bit of Windows 10 on my machine and saw that my BIOS is version F.30 and the last of them available on the site of HP F.66 has.

    The problem is that this model is not suport for Windows 10 because, as I said, is too old. Can I download and run the update of the BIOS for Windows 7 64-bit available in the Web site, or I need to downgrade my OS to Windows 7, update the BIOS and then pass it back to Windows 10?

    Thanks for the help!



    Let me welcome you on the HP forums!

    Your second proposal is correct - as the updates to the BIOS on the HP site are specific to the OS version and if you try to run one for Win7 in Win10, it will refuse to run.

    Good luck

    What is the complete model number or the product number of your laptop?

    Many products are on the label as well as the serial number.

    Other than graphics, here are the other drivers you need...

    Ethernet: 3rd driver on the list. & PNid = 13 & PFid = 5 & Level = 5 & Conn = 4 & DownTypeID = 3 & getdown = false

    PCI device:

    1 driver on the list... & PNid = 15 & PFid = 25 & Level = 4 & Conn = 3 & DownTypeID = 3 & getdown = false


    This will install HP 3D DriveGuard, which offers protection for internal laptop disk drive if the computer accidentally falls or suddenly hits another object. This package is available on mobile phones supported with supported operating systems.

  • Cannot install driver for hp pavilion dv4-2045dx cd player

    Computer: HP Pavilion dv4 2045dx using Windows 7 (64-bit)

    I currently have problems with my computer's CD drive.  He has been unable to read discs of any kind of music, DVDS and software programs for several months now.  The main problem seems to be with an inability to properly install the driver for the cd drive.

    When running "find and solve the problems" of section "Troubleshooting" in the Control Panel, I get an error message that says that there is a problem with the driver for the cd drive.  Whenever I try to install the driver, he is not able to do so and contact the manufacturer of your computer.  I also tried to download all the updates and I get essentially the same message.

    Also, here's all that I've done so far.  I followed all these steps, but the last two listed in the help or support of the site.  Here is the link I used:

    I couldn't do a restore of the system in step 7, because the last date that I could find to a restore point has been today (or yesterday).  In addition, I couldn't do step 8.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you

    Hi @ismailbadhusha,

    Thank you for visiting the HP Forums! A place where you can find solutions for your problems with the help of the community!

    I stumbled upon your post on the laptop and wanted to help you! I looked in your question about your HP Pavilion dm4 Notebook and problems with installing Windows 8.1. First of all, try to click on the Windows icon, type services in the start search box, and then click or tap on the advice of local Services. Scroll down to the Windows Installer. Startup type must be - automatic and the service status should be - has begun. Restart the computer after this stage and try to reinstall.

    Your system came with 64-bit Windows. You can try to use theWindows Update Troubleshooter to fix updates that do not come through Windows.  Please restart the laptop twice to make sure that all updates are completed!

    If you have an error message could you let me know what it is.

    Please let me know how it goes.

  • Pavilion dv4-2160us: correct bios for Pavilion dv4-2160us

    I have serious overheating problems on my Pavilion dv4-260 and reading that updated the bios might help. I have version F0.b, but some sources said another version.  The HP site says nothing when I check the updates.  Can someone tell me what should be the current bios?

    Last version for your model is F.0F - the title of the list of drivers for Windows 7.

    I doubt that a BIOS update would solve the problems of overheating. An older office here suffers from overheating in Windows 10 and I think it is due to no AMD graphics driver to Win 10. The graphics card is old and not support for win 10 AMD. The driver using Microsoft base. No doubt will be back this machine to Windows 7.
