Update graphics in EliteBook 8730w

I have a HP EliteBook 8730 withan ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3670 map.  Can I take this, or is it to the Board of Directors.

The search for better performance with TurboCAD.  RedWay3d has a list of cards that are compatible, the particular one I have is not on the list, but are similar.

Thank you.



The GPU is soldered to the motherboard and cannot be upgraded or replaced.

    Hi all

    I need to do a clean install of Win 7 Pro 64 bit on my trusty 8730w.  Try some Thinkpads I used make is easy in the face of this problem by allowing you to download the wifi driver, and a tool to update the system that makes most of the rest of the driver install for you.  I guess they aren't counting on old IBm'ers be smart enough to figure it out for themselves.

    Any chance of HP has a tool something like that?

    If not, could someone help me a list of the drivers that I need?

    Or maybe just the ones that I'm going to need to get a new facility for you connect to driver support page?

  • HP EliteBook 8730w: replacement of SSD for the boot drive not recognized

    I'm trying to install a Samsung SSD 840 EVO 500 GB instead of the original 500 GB HDD in my Elitebook 8730w (product no. VF889PA #ABG). The 8730w has the latest BIOS (F.20) installed and that is running Windows 7 Professional 32-bit (fully patched).

    When it is connected to the laptop through a USB adapter, to clone the HARD disk image. the SSDS works correctly. Cloning through data Migration Samsung is reported as a success, and the image of the C:\ drive occupies approximately 153 GB. The image of the disc does not include the partition of 1 GB dedicated to HP_TOOLS, due to a known limit of the Samsung software supplied.

    When it is installed in the HARD drive Bay. the SSD is not recognized as a drive and does not appear in the list of startup options. The available boot options only shown are the DVD or a network boot.

    would be very grateful for any advice on the steps required to successfully install the Samsung SSD as boot drive.

    Honestly no, I'm not happy with this one. If it was my machine, I'd be a little concerned about whats the corner of the street. In view of the age, is not surprising really, things wear out over time, the mere fact of electronics.

    Search through everything you have posted, all photos, pdf, all the text double checking. I am absolutely puzzled as to what happened. If you 100% does not reinstall the hard disk between the posts above where no HARD drive is detected in the menu boot options for the post below that where the HARD drive is detected in the same menu. I would say that you have a problem with either, the ssd, the computer motherboard laptop or the small connector on the sata port, I think on these is integrated on the motherboard, so it seems that your advice is doubtful.
    If his works now, great... but be aware that your machine can fail at some point in the near future. And it looks like a defect of the motherboard, other things are probably waiting to fail.

    There is no reason whatsoever your laptop must not have seen this ssd at first startup. A HARD drive is a HARD disk, if its compatible sata, then it will work, no doubt. When he is not on an older machine, its probably a sign of a faulty component.

    Looking through your bios options, I recommend the following.

    On startup options, get rid of internal nic pxe boot, that will only slow your machine at startup as it will seek for a network bootable device. This is the message that you get at startup saying Media Test Failure, this page is preventable with this option disabled.
    Less built lan/wlan switching on enabled in the options of the terminal, also change. This means that if you use wifi at home for example and you decide to plug in a cable network directly to the router to speed up the connection, it will not pass if it is not defined, you will have to do it manually. I work in a large company and the number of people who have this option is unreal. They all assume when they are docked they will on the wired connection.

    Because we are here too, if you ever have problems with a flickering screen, first thing to try, is disable the ambient light sensor which is just below this option of switching. Its fine on normally, but its quite common on 8560p for this causes a flickering screen.

    Hope that helped. Good luck in what you decide to do with the machine

  • HP EliteBook 8730w: new installation of Windows 7 on HP EliteBook 8730w?

    Is it possible to do a fresh install of Windows 7 on HP EliteBook 8730w?

    In other words, if my machine is not currently of any operating system installed, I can use a DVD to install Windows 7 directly or do I install Windows Vista first, before the upgrade to Windows 7?


    If you have a lot of retail or oem drive of W7 installed and the corresponding product key, you need not to install vista first.

    If you have a drive of W7 upgrade, then you must install vista first and then upgrade to W7 and select the custom (clean) installation option then enter the W7 upgrade product key.

    If you upgrade a disk, there may be a way to install W7 without installing Vista first.

    You can do a search on the internet for a few links that provide information about how to do this.  For example:


  • Equium P300-16 t and update graphic card

    Hi all.

    I was thinking about upgrading my graphics on the computer laptop satellite P300-16 t. I have not opened yet so my question is, has anyone here opened this machine? If so, is there a way to install a dedicated graphics card? i.e. the pcie? Could someone please advise if there are institutions in the machine to upgrade my graphics?

    My gratitude in advance for any help.

    In General, update graphics card is not supported and cannot be done.
    Toshiba has written about it in http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/TSB9401AX0001R01.htm

    A common problem with portable mobile is the heat and to built the effective cooling system. Each laptop has optimized cooling system. More powerful graphics card will produce more heat, and this balanced hardware platform will not properly work. Can result in permanent damage from overheating or material.

    Maybe stupid comment now, but if you need more powerful your laptop sell on eBay and buy a new one.

  • AC adapter / CC / Elitebook 8730W-can I use 200W safely?

    I have a laptop EliteBook 8730w. It comes with an external adapter Smart AC 120 watts to 150 watts.

    A friend gave me a 200W power adapter replacement which was originally for the 8740w. It matches my 8730w but is it safe to use as it is of a higher power than the original?

    I talked to HP Support and they advised its fine to use the adapter of 200W. Since they are intelligent adapters, they are made to reduce power regardless of the laptop needs. That is, if the laptop is peaks at 150 w or 90W then the adapter will only provide that much.

    all the solutions out there?



    You can download the driver from the Intel website (search on your model number of graph, then Windows 7), read the notes first check it is correct for your hardware, uninstall the graphics drivers (Windows will return to a default basic driver), restart and install the new drivers.

    If this does not work, the Lenovo Web site will be older (but certified to work) drivers for your system model.

  • allocate space by updating graphic

    Hey all,.

    I was wondering if there is a way to update graphic while allowing space for the table so that it will be more efficient calculation.

    the method I always used was build in a time / loop and an array of generation that concatenates and have a graph set inside the loop. It seems to be slugging my computer because it takes a long time for labview open other programs later.

    My question is, is it possible to allocate space AND have the graphic update each time? I know that I can initialize an array and replace the elements in the table, but then my chart is filled with zeros. any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    If you initialize your array with NaN instead of 0, you will not have visible padding in your chart.

    You can also watch to see if a chart fits your needs better than a graph.  Graphics built in buffers and display the most recent values for x.  You can change the size of the buffer.
