Q: Beats Audio Linux HP Pavilion 17 Notebook PC

I apologize for being a bit of a newbie on the subject, but I'll try my best to explain. I'm trying to get my Beats Audio to work on Linux. I found a way that has worked for some people which involves remapping certain audio pins, but I don't know what pins to map to what. Here are the pins that show up for me: 0x120x130x140x150x160x170x180x190x1a0x1b0x1d0x1e

HP Pavilion 15 Notebook - Windows 8.1 (64bit)Hi there, I am having trouble removing Beats Audio from my laptop. I do a lot of work recording sound and part of that means I need to have a completely flat frequency response coming out of my laptop. I've tried disabling Beats Audio (unticking the box) but even when it is unticked, the faders for the EQ can still be manipulated and still have an effect on the audio. There is also no option to uninstall Beats in the control panel.P.S - I have tried following similar suggestions to uninstall the IDT driver, but I do not have an IDT driver. My drivers are AMD High Definition Audio Device, Cyberlink WebCam Virtual Driver and Realtek High Definition AudioKind regards,-Martin.

so i was talking to a friend a week ago about tech stuff and he showed me his new 2015 issue Macbook Pro 15. Notwithstanding some awful issues they do have, he was amazed at the sound so I took a test drive.
I agree: the speaker/audio fidelity and quality is superb - the best I have heard on any notebook in the last 6 years or so. I have no idea what magic they did to get the volume, range, separation, etc so well-executed in something that is as thin or thinner than, say, my zenbook ux305 [awful, embarassing audio].

But, apple has experience: anyone listened to the el cheapo first generation iPad Mini ? the audio volume and quality beats every notebook in the class, and is on par with the newish Air 2 [which is better but not by much]

those who had the earlier ['14] models are stunned also. they made huge improvement and really didn't say much about it in the specs etc released.

What Intel/Microsoft notebook of comparable size can match it?

Hello, I've got a problem. I've bought this laptop less than a year ago and it started having some performance issues. For example, the boot is sluggish, when I go to the folder it usually hangs a bit before showing the contents of the folder, programs take a few seconds to even start, and I have very bad performance in games, even the not so demanding ones like Minecraft, Terraria, CSGO, Unturned etc. I uninstalled all the bloatware but the issue presisted. I thought that it could be the system (I upgraded it from 8.1 to 10) and I did several system resets and still the same. I installed Ubuntu 16.04 now hoping that it will be better, but no, it is the same. It was overheating a bit, and shutting down unexpectedly, so I cleaned it with the can of compressed air but it didn't help that much. I've got the "Please use proper Smart AC adapter" message a couple of times, but i don't know it  that is the issue. (I am using the original charger, BTW) Thanks in advance! P.S. Sorry if i posted in the wrong section, it is my first time I am using this forum.

I had misplaced the drivers CD which came with my laptop but I didn't realize until I had to do a fresh install of OS.I went for it anyways hoping that I'd download the drivers off the internet and won't be a problem.----------------------------------------------------------------------------------The basic issue is, HP has not provided drivers for Beats Audio (IDT Audio Codec) under the Windows 7 section.-The one provided under the Windows 8 section is 6.10.6433.0.I've downloaded that one and installed it. It works fine until I perform a system shutdown, everytime I turn on my PC and actually reach the desktop, the system stops producing any sounds afterwards. I can hear the Windows Startup sound though (The one which gets played before reaching the login screen) but no sound after I actually log inTo solve this, I always have to uninstall everything related to IDT Audio Codec and then sounds get back on but the beats subwoofer located under my laptop stops working. The sound is pretty low without the subwoofer so I actually need to install the drivers.I've downloaded like ten or so different drivers from the internet, tried every single one but encounter the exact same problem every time. I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit. The exact model of the laptop is, HP Pavilion m6 1090-se Entertainment Notebook PC.Please help me if possible.Regards,Hannan.

A:Can I replace my CPU in my HP Beats 15 Notebook PC?

Yes!!! You have the A8-5545M APU You can install this: AMD A10-5745M (2.1 GHz/2.9 GHz, 4 MB L2, 1333 MHz DDR3L), quad core, 25 W Max DDR3L-1333 Here is the Service Manual which you will need in order to do the replacement. It is not a simple thing I will point out. Service Manual This will be a small but noticeable performance bump. On these models the video is built into the processor so upgrading to the A10 will have the side effect of installing a slightly faster video system as well. It will run a few fps faster on games. Oh, and it is not a matter of just replacing a processor. On this model, the processor is soldered to the motherboard so you have to replace the whole motherboard. This is the part you need: AMD A10-5745M (2.9 GHz/2.1 GHz, 4 MB L2, 1333 MHz DDR3L, quad core, 25 W) for use with Windows Standard HP Pavilion 17 Notebook PC763424-501  The board is available for about $175 plus shipping on eBay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/HP-Pavilion-17-F-AMD-Integrated-2-1GHz-Laptop-Motherboard-763424-501-/361353874281?hash=item54225e8b69 Please let us know if you need any more help and let us know how it goes if you decide to go forward.  If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

System boots and runs ok, BUT now I have lost the original function of the solid state intel memory hardrive on the motherboard (which works together with the mechanical hard drive). Comments:  Ran into problems with restoration disks; couldn't find executables, With Win 7, there are so many updates that Windows updates becomes paralyzed, so I couldn't finish that or install Quicken, (which I assume depends on some of those updates) A different computer builder that I like and trust  (he sells gaming computers) explained the Win 7 problem, updated me to Windows 10 and did some simple clearing of ? old raid volumne ? ?  and said something further needs to be configured for the computer to use the original solid state properly with the mechanical harddrive. He wasn't familiar with this HP setup and didn't want to crash the system.  HELP

I have a HP Beats Special Edition 15-p030nr Notebook PC that I want to upgrage the RAM in. The problem is I don't know how much RAM the system supports. I have checked the specs on the HP site but all it says is 8GB DDR3 RAM which is what it comes with standard and it does not mention maximum allowed or supported RAM. I also just took advantage of the free upgrade to Windows 10 64-bit. My question is how much RAM is supported and can I upgrade the RAM or is it already at the maximum supported.

Here is a really good pictorial disassembly guide: http://www.myfixguide.com/manual/hp-pavilion-15-p000-disassembly/ Note that upgrading memory requires motherboard removal. The HP Manuals page for this model is down but the pictures in the disassembly guide show 2 RAM slots. If you have one 8 gig module then you can add a second one to have 16 gigs but for 2 reasons I say it is not worth it. 1. It is a very difficult job and will jeopardize the warranty; and 2. the upgrade from 8 to 16 gigs is rarely noticeable to an end user unless you are doing certain very demanding things with your computer like video editing, heavy code assembly or production photo editing. Even gaming will work optimally at 8 gigs. If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

When I put a dvd in the drive, my computer recognizes the disk, it just won't play it.  Maybe I dont know how to start it.  I tried the double click.

A:DVD's will not play on my Beats Special Editions notebook

Hi, Your machine should have a software called Cyberlink Power Media Player. Please open it to play DVD for the first time and select it as default, you don't need to open again next time. Regards.

Hi, Your notebook is producing a hexadecimal halt code which is stored in ram as a 'one off' and will be re-calculated after a reboot.  This indicates you have one of the later AMI bios's and unfortunately none of the current code generators will work for this - surprisingly, you can usually still remove a power on password from the machine by removing the rtc cell ( leave the power board connected ) then hold down the power button for 60 seconds before re-inserting the rtc. The bad news is that the rtc is usually on the 'wrong' side of the system board so will require quite a lot of disassembly . The only other option would be to Contact HP regarding this. Regards, DP-K

I upgraded to Windows 10 sometime back and Beats audio was present and working just fine after the update but after a recent automatic update beats audio was gone and the sound on my laptop was not working properly. I was able to reinstall it but the sound is still terrible and I can't adjust the EQ in the Beats Audio control panel. I've tried reinstalling but nothing has helped. Can anyone help me figure out what's going on and how to fix it. I need my audio to work properly because i use my laptop when DJ'ing. I have a HP envy m6 64bit OS that came with Beats Audio
