Tips for a laptop replacement please.

After numerous emails, phone converstations and finally offered letters HP replace my laptop with a new reliable model (we hope).  (Unacceptable) aware, there is a dv9030ea, when I bought it originally that I was attracted by the GPU I thought I would be able to handle newer games well enough.  HP now are offering me a little choice in what model they replace with.

The front runner at the moment is a dv7-1214 the spec looks good, but I'm a bit put off by the ATI 3450 512 MB GPU clients.  Will this handle GPU games better than Nvidia 256 Mb 7600go?  I understand that he plays well HD movies, but wouldn't be so good at handling the most difficult games, I'm not much more than a movie buff.  I asked specifically measure a laptop ATI under tension after experiencing problems with the Nvidia GPU, but now I am a little concerned I could have limited my options.  Anyone know if there is a recent Nvidia GPU which do not have the problems of lack of reliability overheating, and better manage my requests that the only option of ATI I offered?

Your opinion would be appreciated, but please save with the facts.

Thank you very much.

Yes, you can compare the last three digits of the video model between ATI and nVidia for a rough equivalency test. In other words, you had a '600' and you are trading for a "450". Now, the 450 is from a family a little more recent so the gap will not be much, but I would say the Geforce would be a little better at the game.

Reportedly, nVidia has set the process of manufacturing problems that led to the horrible failure experienced on set all the time laptop nVidia video cards rate the dv9000 series was available as a new model. The problems were not limited to HPs and darn near bankupted nVidia. However, HP and others tend to flee the video cards nVidia for ATI for reasons quite obviousl.

The current dv7 - t seems to come with a 512 meg Radeon HD 4530 or upgrade is a 1 gig HD 4650. I would say the 4530 is comparable or even slightly better than the GeForce 7600.

  • replacement screen for computer laptop dv6t - b 6, 00

    I have a computer laptop dv6t - b 6, 00, product # QJ926AV.  Maintenance and Service Guide shows two difference replacement screens, the 665334-001 Brightview display and the anti-reflective screen of 665335-001.  That it would be OK for my laptop?

    Here is the service manual that you already have:


    See page 30. The problem is that the "anti-Glare" is a higher resolution screen and also needs different data cable from the motherboard to the screen. You can install a screen on any system dv6t - b 6, 00 but you also need the correct cable and a cable replacement makes it a little more difficult.

    The second problem is that you have a generic model number that designates a custom order machine in order to have a type of display based on the model number.

    Whenever you replace a laptop screen the ONLY way to serve to have replaced dozens or even hundreds, is to remove the Panel before you order a replacement. Buy the screen based on the manufacturer designation of screen at the rear of the Panel not the model number of the laptop. In this way: 1. you are sure to double dog of compatibility; and, 2. You can shop a variety of panels and get the best possible price.

  • Hello, please help me. I use a power keyboard for my laptop. I see in the new keyboard is equipped with a num lock key is turned on. I can't use on it please help me disable it. I do not use a NumLock on. Thank you

    Hello, please help me. I use a power keyboard for my laptop. I see in the new keyboard is equipped with a num lock key is turned on. I can't use on it please help me disable it. I do not use a NumLock on. Thank you

    You say that when you press the NUM LOCK key, the Numlock State does not change (if enabled to disabled and vice versa)?  Have you tried to unplug the keyboard and by ensuring that the keyboard of the laptop does not have enabled Numlock?  If so, turn it off on the laptop keyboard and reinsert the another keyboard and see if the problem is resolved.

    If you do not need the Numlock key, it can be disabled at startup with the following procedure: Once this is done, I don't think he's going to turn on or off and that they the keyboard will start in the off position.  You will not be able to use the key yourself or another, but maybe the problem she is on (which is worse than it to be impossible to be turned on) will be resolved and I hope it will be enough for you.

    If the key does not work and you want to be able to use it, the keyboard may be defective.  Try the keyboard on another computer and see if you have the same problem.  If so, the keyboard is defective and must be replaced.

    I hope this helps.

    Good luck!

  • Pavilion Notebook PC 15 no: not possible for laptop replacement screen

    My mother bought a computer Notebook PC 15 non - Pavilion laptop touch screen. A few weeks later, the screen was smashed. I went to my local repair center (PC World) and asked if they could replace the screen. They said that they could not so I decided a have a good good to watch online and could not find a replacement of the exact screen to the laptop. We have seacrhed worldwide for a replacement and have not found one. Our guarantee covers only the technical problems and we didn't have the laptop a few weeks.

    We then rang the HP customer service and asked if they could fix it. They said that they could only fix it for £250 or completely replace the laptop. We thought it was ridiculous absoulety because it was worth as a cellar that was worth half of the laptop.

    I'm sick and tired and fed in place of the search for replacements of the screen and finding none. Right now we are sitting here and pay for a laptop that has a broken screen.

    What I can't wrap the head around if anyone one of these laptops purchased from you or PC world and had a comprehensive warranty on the laptop and they break the screen how they replace or repair? Because PC world could not afford to keep replacing each time a computer laptop full and nobody could not afford to continue to pay £250 to get the screen fixed.

    If this is the case your accessibility to replacements for products and services are terrible and your expensense are high especially when the screen itself is worth about £50 himself. This is disgracefull.

  • Tips for when your webcam is not detected

    EDIT: If you have recently upgraded to Windows 8 and experience this problem, please read this document.

    Here are some tips to solve a problem of webcam not detected.  I see this question get asked a lot so here are the steps you should take to resolve the problem.

    To start, you make sure that the device is detected by Windows.  The following instructions are for Windows 7, but should be very similar to Windows Vista and Windows 8.

    Option 1: Check Device Manager to make sure that it works correctly.

    1. Right-click the Start button, type "Device Manager" and press ENTER.
    2. Once charges Device Manager click 'View' then "Show Hidden devices."
    3. Locate the section "imaging devices".
    4. Note If you see the webcam here.
    5. If the webcam is listed, click it and check that it is not 'disabled '.
    6. If the webcam is listed and disabled, go to Option 2.  If the webcam is not listed, you will spend on Option 4.

    Option 2: Allow Windows to re - install the device.

    1. All remaining in the Device Manager, right click on your webcam and select "Uninstall".
    2. If you are prompted select "remove driver and driver package".
    3. Restart your laptop and allows Windows to attempt to reinstall the webcam.
    4. If Windows detects the webcam check the operation of the webcam.
    5. If Windows does not detect the webcam and install move to Option 3.

    Option 3: Manually install the drivers for your webcam.

    1. This site allows to determine your product/model number.
    2. Visit the Page of Support HP and use this product number to visit the specific page of your product.
    3. Go to "Drivers and software" and are looking for the driver for your webcam.  NOTE: the drivers for the webcam are sometimes provided with the YouCam software.
    4. Download and install this driver.
    5. Restart the PC.
    6. Check the features.

    Option 4: Manually re - detect the hardware.

    1. Disconnect all external devices.
    2. Shut down the laptop.
    3. Remove the battery and AC power.
    4. Press and hold the power button for 10-15 seconds.
    5. Reinstall the battery and AC power.  Then turn on the laptop.
    6. Once Windows is loaded back to the Device Manager.
    7. Selection 'Action' and then 'search for material changes.
    8. If the Device Manager detects hardware let settle.
    9. If Device Manager does not detect the see material Option 5.

    Option 5: System Restore and system recovery.

    It is very well described in this document.  Note that all data not saved prior to a recovery will be lost.

    6 options: Repair or replacement.

    If none of these solutions worked for you, it is likely that you are experiencing a hardware failure.  It is possible to replace the webcam or reinstall a loose ribbon cable.  However, it is one of most difficult repairs on the laptop.  If you want to try this repair, you can visit your laptop support page and go to the section "manuals".  There is normally a "maintenance and Service Guide" for laptops, this will cover the disassembly of the laptop.  You can then use HP parts Surfer to locate the part for your laptop.

    If you do not want to attempt a repair yourself you can ask HP about a repair.  For customers in the United States / Canada, you can call 1-800-474-6836.  If you are not in this region, you need visit the HP Support Site to get contact information for your region.

    I hope that everyone considers this information useful!

  • Satellite A200-1AH - need some advice for hard drive replacement

    Nice day

    I've been using a + A200-1AH + for three years. Unfortunately, I suffer from problem of free disk space. So, I decided to replace my drive with a new one.

    How can I know the HDD I buy will be suitable for my laptop?

    Can you please tell me what era the + key-points + I need to know when buying a new hard drive for my laptop?

    Post edited by: alicozgo

    I changed the subject, because it was so dumb. Why would I ask 'what hard drive buy' in a Toshiba forum :) what a forum administration...


    Satellite A200 is a more recent series of laptops. This series of laptop use and support the SATA HDD controller and this means that you need a SATA HDD!

    The laptop runs the 2.5 hard drives. The speed of the HARD drive is not very important for compatibility so that you can choose 4200 RPM or other

    In addition the SATA controller has no limitation in size so THEORETICALLY, you should be able to use hard drives with 320 GB or more
    But in some cases rare BIOS would not be able to manage some HARD drive sizes, but this generally isn't the case

    Try this - Panel - Device Manager - CD/DVD - double click on the device - driver tab.
    Click on update drivers (this will probably do nothing) - RIGHT click ON the drive - uninstall.
    RESTART this will refresh the default driver stack. Even if the reader does not appear to continue

  • HP dv6 7040tx: compatibility mSATA for my laptop


    is it my computer laptop support mSATA SSD? I intend to add an SSD for my laptop. I have 2 options:

    1. Add an mSATA ssd

    2. replace the current HDD with SSD normal and add the disk using Caddy.

    I don't know if my phone is compatible mSATA SSD. Can I add it to my laptop?

    The features of my computer: HP dv6 7040tx

    In the user's guide, it was provided that it supports 16 GB mSATA. I don't know if I can add 250 GB mSATA.

    Thank you

    It supports an mSATA WSSD but not quite in the way you think. Your laptop uses the first generation of hardware using the mSATA. The mSATA was used only as a "cache" which accelerates a regular mechanical hard drive, using the Intel Rapid Storage technology. These are usually not larger than 32 gigs and when activated, create links with the mechanical drive in a RAID array type. The cache contains startup and commonly accessed files program files and speed up the process a bit. It's just not as good as a pure SSD for sustained Read and write operations. If a normal hard drive 2.5 inch is present in the main Bay SATA the WSSD cannot be the boot drive.

    The configuration of your best and fastest is to place a 2.5 inch SATA SSD in the main Bay, and then if you need storage use a shopping cart of DVD player. I don't really like these arrangements and given the price that SSDS descended a little a 1 to is actually a viable option and should be all the storage that anyone really needs. What with the cloud and all. And the mSATA drives are not faster than a 2.5 inch SATA SSD.

  • This Bios is not for your laptop!

    First I started having this massage of error at startup 'System Fan (90 b)'

    I searched HP's site and found several tips to resolve this.

    one of the tips was to check your Bios version and to the most recent update.

    I followed the steps carefully.

    1 check my bios version / date.

    2. check my cpu model.

    3 open the HP website and let it detect my laptop model (and it does correctly).

    Laptop HP ENVY 14-2136nr
    Model: LM764EA #A2N

    4 select my operating system (Windows 7 X 64)

    5 - Check the Bios Driver and download it.

    6 - everything seemed perfect and once I try to install the driver I get this massage of error (this bios is not for your laptop!)

    HOW IS IT?

    HI @ibraham-hashem.

    I see that you have a laptop of HP ENVY 14-2136nr and that you receive 90b fan error. One of the suggestions is update the BIOS, but when you tried you have received the message that it was not for your laptop.

    First of all, I ran the HP Support Assistant to help with updates and solve problems.

    Have you checked against viruses and malware?

    I try to restore the bios, and then retry the update. Restore the BIOS

    If it is not successful, I would go to the bios screen, and when you look down, you should see an option to restore the default values.  Please restore the default values.

    Now, try to install the update to the bios.  Updated the BIOS

    I hope this helps.
