A:How do I upgrade my notebook to an SSD HP Pavilion dv7-4120e...

Orega Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums! We have to clear up one issue before any discussion of SSD replacement can happen. Drives come with two different connectors.  One is two parallel rows of small pins -- known as the IDE interface.  The other is a plastic tab with tiny gold strips on it -- known as the SATA interface. SSDs only come with SATA interface, not IDE. So, if your drive is an IDE drive, you can not replace it with an SSD, nor can you add an SSD to the PC.

Ive done a lot of cleaning and optimizing, but nothing has gotten better on it. It get's very warm very quickly and the fan always seems to be on high.

A:RAM upgrade for Pavilion g6-2235tx Notebook

Yes you can use DDR3L since you have the 3rd generation processor. Here is the manual: Service manual You definitely do not want to mix low and high voltage RAM. If you are going to install 2 modules you want them to be the same density (number of ranks) and ideally, you want them to be identical.  So I would get 2 x 4 gig DDR3L-1600 modules.  If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

A:HP Pavilion Notebook Hard Drive Upgrade

Hi, Disk usage 100% acually means busy. There are many causes including but not limitted to the slow HDD (only 5400RPM and 8MB cache). Faster disk such as SSD will help in this case and you can use SSD on your machine, any normal machine.Normally you can use same size with the existing HDD, or smaller (over 1TB is ok but I won't recommend this).It only has 240GB, your old HDD is 1TB, this may take more work for you in the future BUT you can reuse the 1TB HDD by using it to store files/data and only use 240GB SSD for Windows and programs. And yes you still can keep Windows key. Regards.

Hey, fellow forum users. I have questions concerning the processor in my HP Pavillion 15 Notebook. Mainly being,-is it possible that I could upgrade the current dual core i3 I have to an i5 or even i7?-Is there any other upgrades I can make to beef the notebook up as I mostly use it for gaming  and I can hardly get 20 FPS?-Or do you advise I sell this laptop as I cannot upgrade the motherboard? I have tried using the already existing support for processor upgrades on the HP support website but it was no help at all and I've had to do a lot of digging to no avail.Thank you for taking the time to read this, I hope you are able to answer my questions and I'm sorry for my inability as I have very little experience with hardware. Much thanks, Halogen.

No it is set up to take DDR3 memory.

I just attempted to upgrade my memory with a 1GB module from Kingston.
Module = 1GB PC2700 333 MHz KVR333SC/1GR

The Notebook has 2 memory bays. 1 memory bay is accessible to the user. I replaced a 256MB module with the new 1GB module. I started the computer up and it booted just fine and pulled up my desktop screen. Then I received the blue screen with a message that Windows was shutting down. I removed the module and re-seated it and tried again. Now it only gets to the Windows screen and then goes to the blue screen. It looked so simple - HELP!!

I have HP pavilion g6 notebook. It is running on Windows 10. It has 4gb RAM & 500 GB HDD. I want to upgrade it with SDD to increase the processing speed to use my Laptop for computer aided drafting work. Wanted to know if SDD upgrade will help to speed up my Laptop?Which SDD's are compatible with my laptop? 

A:SSD upgrade for HP Pavilion g6 Notebook PC (2012 model)

SSD (solid state drive)...the only kind you can use is a 2.5 inch SATA type. Like this: https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-2-5-Inch-Internal-MZ-75E250B-AM/dp/B00OAJ412U/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=... This is the same size and shape as a laptop hard drive so is a drop-in replacement. Many ways to clone the software or reinstall but best to plan that in advance.  Will the SSD help with CAD type work? To some extent. The laptop will boot up much faster and programs will load much faster. However an SSD has no impact on computing work that is done in the CPU or GPU like gaming for example and 3D design work is similar to gaming in that way. Upgrading to 8 gigs of RAM would have perhaps a more positive impact on CAD.  The SSD upgrade is still very worthwhile in general.  If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

2 suggestions: 1. Get a good headset with microphone. The microphone built into the chassis of the laptop is not ideal. For example, Skype discourages trying to use it for video calling.  2. You do not have recovery disks but you can make a system backup that could be used to put your exact software setup, apps, documents, etc. back on the machine in the event of a hard drive failure. You can never rely on any hard drive as the sole copy of any information that is important to you.  Please provide the model number so we can be more detailed in giving advice about your hardware.

Dear helpful Friends.   I bought this laptop and every time it would ask me to activate windows. After one month I returned it back to the shop where I bought it. Kindly they received it and sent it back to Hp branch and told me that, they would call me when it is ready. After three hours they called and told me to come for my laptop that it was ready. I went and picked it. Thanks it is working without asking to activate windows. Before then, it had a recovery partition which was there from the day I bought the laptop, and which was there before the windows was activated. Now, my question is, in case I use the recovery partition to return the laptop to the way it was from the factory, will the windows be active, and if not, will I have to take it back to Hp branch again to activate for me or what should I do.?

When I upgraded to Win 8.1 from Vista everything went great and worked ok with a couple of minor driver issues.  after about 4 or 5 months I noticed on the file manager that the DVD player didn't show up anymore and when I went to backup Quicken.  I have looked for and tried a couple of updated drivers and I received a couple of trojans for my trouble so I haven't tried in a while.  Now I have a program on a disk I found that I would like to install.  If I put the disk in the DVD player and it recognizes it and runs till it times out so I don't think It's the player.  It does the same thing with the Win 8.1 disk.  The DVD R/W does not show up in the Root dir or the device manager file either. I've even pulled the DVD and started up, shut down and put it back in and re-started with no luck I hate to buy a new one if it doesn't need it. Thanks any suggestion would be appreciated.

In November 2015 I upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 (64 bit). My Bluetooth devices were working properly. Last week I did a complete hard disk reformat and reinstallation of Windows 10.  Now I cannot connect any of my Bluetooth devices. In Device Manager, it says the two Bluetooth devices (Generic Bluetooth Adapter and Microsoft Bluetooth Enumerator) are working properly. The drivers are both dated 21 June 2006, version 10.0.10586.420 (Microsoft). When I try to connect, it shows "Your PC is searching for and can be discovered by Bluetooth devices.", but none of my devices (Microsoft Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000 and several Apple iDevices) show up. I have of course enabled discovery on the devices. Is there a driver I need? I know this can work, since everything was OK after I upgraded to Windows 10, before the full reinstallation. Also, I followed the same procedures on my HP Pavilion destop (HPE-590t) and Buetooth works fine there. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hey Evoicefire,  I really wish I had better news for you but (like you mentioned) this computer doesn't have any Windows 8 drivers made available through HP for it. Only Windows 7 drivers are listed for it on the Driver Page. In many cases Windows 7 drivers will suffice although there may be slight glitches. Third parties do offer drivers that may work too. I found this forum thread where users confirm that this driver version works for the 6770M. There's a lot of good information on that forum thread.  That processor should be OK with Windows 8. I'm not seeing any issues online regarding that processor and Windows 8. If you have any other questions, let me know
