Q: Battery Replacement Options in Pavilion dm4-1xxx series Note...

I am looking at options to replace a battery in an HP Pavilion dm-1xxx series laptop, specically dm4-1050ea and dm4-1164nr and dm4-1150ea, but I am confused over battery compatibility. The HP manual, HP Pavilion dm4 Entertainment PC Maintenance and Service Guide (http://www.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c02615687.pdf) gives 9-cell, 93-WH (2.80-Ah) Li-ion : 593550-001 6-cell, 55-WH (2.55-Ah) Li-ion : 553594-001 6-cell, 62-WH (2.80-Ah) Li-ion : 593562-001 so any of these 3 are interchangeable between the -1050ea and the -1150ea ? no, it seems not - read on.... but I see that in the manual for the dm4-1164nr (also the M&S Guide for dm4-1140sa and dm4-1150ea, I now learn), also titled The HP manual, HP Pavilion dm4 Entertainment PC Maintenance and Service Guide (http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c03106715), that while the lower rated batteries have the same p/n, the higher rated on is described as9-cell, 100-WH (3.0-Ah) Li-ion : 636631-001 Are these two 9-cell batteries interchangeable, ot not ? They must have physically the same form because they both accept the same lower rated batteries and also have the same elec. spec - 10.8V ? If they not compatible, can I be instructed as to why not ? (eg, they aren't the size, incorrect pin-out, internal resistance too high/low, etc) I see that the maintenance and service manual are split into 10xx and 11xx versions, but question regarding the 9-cell batteries still stands.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

I notice how there is no topic abou this nor any categories about this. I recently bought this laptop HP Envy m7-u009dx and realized the battery is not external. I am using this laptop on a daily basis and know this laptop will die in a year or 2 because the battery is spoiled or runs out of cycles.  If that happens, what options do I have to get this battery replaced/fixed? Because currently, I am not seeing any battery for this product online.  I don't know whether to return this laptop back to the store or not.   I rather have an option of a battery available for me to replace myself, instead of shipping it to HP company with chances of there being shipping damages and constant reshipping as a result. I appreciate it if I can get a response. I like this new laptop a lot, I just don't want to waste it for a new one in 2 years.

@Autralla Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums! The "key code" that comes with modern PCs is the Windows Product key and that is (1) embedded in the UEFI firmware of the motherboard (and is not printed on anything), (2) is only used to Activate Windows, and (3) is not needed for anything else. So, you need to describe, in some detail, what you are trying to run that is asking for a "key code". Also, we need to know which OS version is running: Win7, Win8, Win10.We can proceed once you provide the information.Thanks

A:Battery - Vista is not able the retrieve the power options for the battery

Hi

To be honest I have no idea what you are talking about.
The Vista power options are a part of the Vista OS and you don?t need to install anything.

But on Toshiba notebook the Vista power option would be extended by some Toshiba power options.
Are you speaking about this Power Saver options?
If yes, then I would recommend reinstalling the VAP (value added package) because these power options are a part of VAP.

I'd like to open a discussion about CPU upgrade possibilities for dm4-1xxx's The Maintainence and service manual (c02615687 or c03106715 - I don't know why these have different ref. nos, they appear to be the same document) gives a list of compatible and interchangeable CPU's, as I understand it.  The most advanced of these is the core i7-640M, 2.80-GHz (SC turbo up to 3.33 GHz), 4-MB L3 cache The job of installing a new CPU requires a virtually complete disassembly and reassembly of the laptop, as given in the manual or one of a few instructional videos and guides on the internet.  This is a long process, but it is the same one for cleaning the fan properly. Is it true that the CPU I mantion above will function at its best in this computer ? (or have I misunderstood the guide) Has anyone replaced the CPU in such a model ? I'd like what their experiences were (not only for upgrading, but simple replacement of e.g., a defective CPU). Finally, in W7 at least, in the 'about my computer' page (sart > R-click Computer > Properties) a Windows Experience Rating is available, and if that is clicked it gives scores for the different parts of the system.  This can give an idea of what is limiting the computer in different areas, and how these affect you depends on the tasks you want to perform.The question about this, is it possible to simulate this and generate the scores for different configurations of 'upgrades' to ge...

A:CPU upgrade in dm4-1xxx

@Woodwood To answer your questions ... The processor models listed in the Maintenance manual are the ones that will work.  The fastest one listed there is the fastest one for your laptop -- and yes -- you often have to completely disassemble the laptop, including removing the old processor. You would then have to obtain the proper thermal paste, remove the old paste, and apply the new paste. Also, since the faster processors generate more heat, if there were any cooling fins or pad on the old one, you would need ones for the new processor. No you can not "simulate" the results of the Windows Experience Rating.  You CAN manually alter the rating so that it shows false results -- but that accomplishes you nothing -- it just gives you a set of fake values.  Folks have tried this in older PCs because enhancend video settings were not presented until the video performance rating exceeded a certain level, but they found out that faking the ratings did not accomplish anything.

Although my new HP a1230n comes with, what appears to be a decent video card. Because it is integrated on the motherboard, would I be okay with staying with this card? I am an older guy who doesn't play hardcore games on my computer anymore. But I do want to do video copying with my DVD burner. And, if I did replace it, would the installation of another card in a PCI slot be going into my device manager and do some disconnecting?
 

A:ATI RADEON XPRESS 200 Series replacement

Hi Jakatak,
The HP a1230n's are actually pretty nice machines out of the box. They have PCI-Express slots so you are current with video upgrade capabilities if you ever did want to add a 3rd party videocard. That's an Athlon XP system too with a very fast FSB/memory bus.

As far as the integrated graphics are concerned, the Radeon IGP is actually one of the better integrated chips you can get. They are basically a shared vmem Radeon 7000 in capabilities, so playing a plethora of older DirectX 7.0/8.0 games is possible. They do pretty well in 3d benchmarks compared to other integrated chipsets. Obviously, they are not well suited to modern 3d/directx 9.0 games though.

So if you're not planning on installing any newer 3d games and mainly use the PC for video, audio, web surfing, burning dvd's and only light gaming- the Radeon IGP isn't a bad solution for this.

If you wish to get a fancy, whiz-bang videocard that supports directx 9.0, newest shaders and higher performance- you have a WIDE selection of cards in the PCI-Express you can use. NewEgg.com has selections from both ATI and NVIDIA from $110 to $600 depending on how much 3d muscle the games you wish to play need.

I dont know how to see what 6700 card it is but the fan on it fell apart (I got the PC back in 2014). I'm trying to find a replacement to but have no idea what to look for. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

A:AMD RADEON HD 6700 series replacement fan?

There is no such thing as fan for a card that is the same for all vendors everywhere forever.
A 6770 would likely have a Dust buster type fan and getting a new one from the OEM that made the card will likely cost more than buying a new card.

Okay, so my sister's Sony Vaio VGN-NR120E has a damaged keyboard.
I found a place to buy the part (ebay, various other sites, etc. all sell them...) but for the life of me, I cannot figure out how the heck to get the keyboard off of the thing to replace it.

Has anyone replaced a keyboard on a Sony Vaio VGN-NR series before or knows how to do it? I'm fairly confident in my abilities but I want to avoid dismantling parts of the computer I don't need to, so any insight on how it's fastened on there would help.
 

A:Sony Vaio VGN-NR series keyboard replacement

Hi

sony laptops use (like most do) very small clips at the top of the keyboard, usually 3 or 4 of them along with screws from the bottom,, finding which screws is a trial, unlike Dell who mark the screws (k) for keyboard, (p) for palmrest etc etc.

Once you find out which screws they are get a credit card or similar and slide it across the top of the keyboard between the top and the case, you will feel the clips, use another card to gently lift the keyboard at the same time, be careful once done as their is a ribbon cable on a plug that connects to the motherboard, a gentle pull should pull it out if its a molex type, or else it may be a lift up the black bar type and slide the cable out, or slide a little lug on either side up (to the side etc) to remove the cable.
