One more issue is that Will there be any problem if there are different volts in two RAMS cards in the provided slots
I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.
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.
You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

My old laptop had WinXp and it wasnt working so i sent it in for repair:
they told me it would cost to much for them to repair so my warranty got me a new laptop:
problem is that it has vista, I would personally like to "upgrade" to windows Xp Pro
Xp Pro x64 bit edition
I was wondering with the specs if everything was winXP compatible
XP is compatible with anything that runs Vista. Vista is a lot more demanding, the part that wouldn't be compatible is the drivers. I have a toshiba laptop that came with Vista, and I do want XP on it, but my problem, ther is no driver on XP for the wireless card. So I either give up the wireless card, figure out how to make a driver for it (probably will never happen), or hope they eventually come up with one. The only reason that my driver wouldn't work is that the wireless card is se up differently then most I think so there isn't a driver for it except through Toshiba and they don't support XP for this laptop since I last checked, not too long ago.
The best way to check this is to go to the companies support site and see if the drivers for everything work with XP.
I did just check the website and it doesn't seem like they support XP either, so it can be a hit or miss then. You can try setting up XP as a dual boot (like I did) to test it. You can also call them or write to them and ask them, they may have a better answer than I do. I never used an Asus product before so I don't know too much about them.
XP Pro will be easier than XP 64 since a 64 bit OS has less drivers avalibale (just not as commonly used yet).
I have a laptop w/ this CPU: Intel Core 2 T7200 @ 2.00GHz 1.99 GHz. Socket 775 (mobile)I'd like to upgrade to a better CPU, Any idea what my parameters are? I am not technically savy. Thanks. -John

I have an older laptop.. it's a Lenovo ThinkPad T41 2379.
I want to put a new HDD in it... since it only has a 40G and I have filled it up.
It's the kind that sits on a little platform thing and slides out when you unscrew the screw. There is NO cable, SATA, ribbon or otherwise. It just looks like an IDE connection that you plug the HDD directly into.
If I were shopping in a store I could find this by looking at it, but I have no idea what it's called and want to order one from newegg.com.
Can anyone tell me what it's called "technically", or provide a newegg link?
Boy I am just not laptop hardware savvy. lol
Thanks in advance.
It would be an IDE laptop drive.
There is probably an adapter on the IDE connection of the drive
to adapt it to the laptop.
The adapter will need to be removed and installed on the new drive.
You dont want to get a drive that is larger than your hardware can handle.
If it can do 40GB,it will probably handle a 120GB drive.
There should be screws in the side of the hard drive carrier you remove
to remove the drive from the carrier.

I'm tired of having a laptop that can't keep up with me.
I live online, and have worked in and around the Internet industry for almost twenty years. I'm also ADD so its not unusual for me to have 10-20 browser tabs open in Chrome. Sometimes I also have Firefox open as well as I feel they have different strengths.
Other applications I use daily are: Outlook, Photoshop, FTP, Microsoft Access and Excel, as well as tons of utilities such as backup, remote access, soluto, various cloud drives, and productivity tools. Right now my computer takes 4-5 minutes to boot.
My biggest frustration is that dreaded mouse cursor circle that goes round and round making me wait. Chrome or Outlook often say 'not responding', but if I wait they come back. Here is my current configuration.
Asus N70SV, Intel Core2 Duo CPU P8700 @ 2.53GHz, 4 GB DDR2 SDRAM, NVIDIA GeForce GT 130M. 300 GB Hard Drive.
I have the hard drive partitioned to have Programs & OS on C (82GB used), and Files on D (68GB used).
This will be for work and I'm a part owner, so I want to make a case for the laptop I need but don't want to purchase more than I need. I thought 2 drives, one 128 GB SSD the other SATA 500GB but I can't find that. Portability is not that important so I don't need a super light ultrabook, but a mobile laptop is still required.
How much RAM, which processor, buy now or wait a bit? If you hardware guys could provide some help or insight, this sof... Read more
- Forget ultrabooks. You need a standard laptop. It'll be thick and heavy, but it'll have all you need.
- 8GB RAM, x2 4GB sticks.
- Either 128GB SSD, or 500GB HDD. Ensure that the laptop has two HDD bays and just purchase the second drive separately, because as you say, not many come configured like you want. If you don't need DVD drive, most laptops accept an HDD in this slot.
- 1920x1080 15inch+ screen.
- i7 quad-core CPU.
I suggest you wait as new Intel CPU's are around the corner. 2mths max.
Is it possible to configure a laptop for internet connection so that I can use my cable setup at home and a wireless connection when traveling?
that should just work by default - you should just be able to use the cable setup and then when you detect a wireless signal when travelling connect to it

I am a bit confused about my ENVY dv6 7300 Quad Edition. In the maintanence manual, it says that it does not support SSDs over 160GB. If this is true, then why? I want to upgrade to an SSD, but I will need more space than a measly 160GB. That doesn't even seem to be big enough for the entire OS.
Hi, You don't need 160GB for any OS on personal computer. One of my laptop has 120GB SanDisk SSD. I use it for Windows 7 Ultimate, Office Plus 2010, Adobe CS5 suite, Nero 10 suite and few other programs and still have 24GB free. Anyway, back to your question: You can use SSD greater (capacity) 160GB. The sweet spot now is 1TB. Regards.Read other 3 answers

I am looking at a laptop for a fellow student. He upgraded from 8.1 to 10 shortly after 10 became available. Recently it was running slow and shuts off sometimes. Fan vent was clogged. CPU temp a little too high. First of all there are no drivers for Windows 10 from Toshiba. This laptop is not on their compatibility list.
I was running ccleaner and noticed its taking a long time. I looked at the CPU and Ram usage and CPU is at 7% and RAM at 49%. Then I noticed the speed of the CPU is at 1.2GHz with a Max speed of 2.6GHz. Every now and then it will jump to 2.3GHz for a second or two, then back down to 1.2 or 1.3GHz. Could this have anything to do with the 10 upgrade? Will not having the drivers for 10 create a performance issue? I think the laptop needs to go back to 8.1 but I need input from above my level (very low).

Intel Core i5-3230M CPU @2.6GHz
4G RAM Single Channel DDR3 @ 798MHz (11-11-11-28)

I have had this Dell Latitude C610 for a while and never bothered to use the Infrared port built into it.
Yesterday when while I went into the BIOS and enabled the IR port and set it to COM2.
When Windows XP pro loaded, it said new hardware was found and installed. I went to Device Manager and it was listed under Infrared Devices. (called "SMC IrCC - Fast Infrared Port")
I tried using programs like WinLIRC to do things with the IR port, but it asks what COM port the IR port is.
According to the BIOS it is COM2, but there is no reference to COM2 being used. In the properties of the IR device, it says "Location: Internal Port".
I have tried uninstalling the IR device and removing it's files. Windows told me I have a new unknown device. I tried installing it as a serial port and that didn't work, and when I installed it as an Infrared device, it had no COM port again.
I installed IrCOMM and it shows in device manager as "Virtual IR COM Port (COM4)" under Ports and not Infrared devices, but using COM4 doesn't seem to respond to anything.
When I installed IrCOMM it asked what port to use so I chose COM2, and it re-assigned it to COM4 during the installation.
Is there any way I can set the IR port to a specific COM port, or emulate it as a COM port?
Anybody know anything about IR ports in XP?

For those kind of specs on a laptop, it will be ridiculously expensive. That kind of hardware is high-end desktop level, which in a laptop will mean the battery will last no time at all and it'll be much more expensive than a desktop.
I've never even heard of a laptop that supports 16Gb of RAM.
Really, build your own desktop with those specs, what you want doesn't exist.
I'm going to the store today to try to find a wireless mouse for my laptop for gaming .. There doesn't seem to be any ports on my laptop compatible with the wireless mouse I currently have ... I have a Logitech wireless mouse..[not sure of exact model].. it does not have a USB signal device .. It has green and pink circular connectors which I used for my desktop comp along with the wireless keyboard ...
I'm thinking maybe I have some kind of Bluetooth in my laptop, and there may be a wireless mouse I can purchase that is compatible with my laptop's Bluetooth? But my question is, how do I find out if my laptop even has this so that I know what to look for at the store?
It's a new laptop .. an HP Entertainment PC with Vista .. So I don't see why it would be impossible to connect a wireless mouse to it ...

DIANAKD Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!I wish I had good news for you -- but I don't ... While Microsoft tells you that there is no risk in the Win10 Upgrade, because they let you believe that you can always revert back to your original OS and setup within 30 days, the ugly fact of the matter is that the Win10 GoBack function has proven to be unreliable -- and when it fails, it can leave machines in a corrupted state -- which doesn't always happen, but it does happen often enough to be a problem and you won't get any warning in advance that it is going to trash your PC!If that is not bad enough, the Win10 Upgrade is know, in some cases, to corrupt the Recovery partition stored there by the OEM that built the original machine. This pretty much guarantees that no HP Recovery is going to work: http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Video-Display-and-Touch/HP-Recovery-Manager-Blocked-After-Windo... At this point, the ONLY way to restore her prior OS is through something known as HP Recovery Media. HP Recovery Media is a set of DVDs and a CD, or USB stick, that will erase the hard drive (removing all data, settings, and applications, reinstall the original OS, drivers, and some HP Utilities.

Here is what is happening. The users go to a meeting. I can setup a constant ping to the machine. Whether it be 20-2 hours in length, the ping drops as soon as the user hits space bar, moves mouse and wakes Monitor up. Laptop is set to never sleep when plugged in.
As soon as the keyboard or something is moved to wake Monitor it drops network connection. If I setup the connection as a static/non alternate IP it doesn't disconnect.
It sounds like your network adaptor settings might need to be adjusted to maximum performace. You mentioned that you turned off sleep setting but what about the wireless adaptor settings in Advanced Power options? Picture below.
As for the static IP's changing, you should be able to keep those static IP's by shutting off DHCP and setting the static IP's under network properties by clicking on IPv4 then choose properties and then select "Use the Following IP address" and set the static IP's to what ever the router is using for static IP's. You should also fill in the subnet mask and the default gateway as well. You can get that info from the routers set up page.
I am hooked up just fine to my home wired network via cable modem. I'm not ready to go wireless at home since I rarely move my laptop and like the setup I have now.
However, I would like to install a wireless PC Card (a Netgear MA521 is what I have handy) so that when I'm on the road I can work from commercial sites such as Atlanta Bread Co., Panea Bread, and Barnes and Noble.
Is it possible to have both a wired and wireless connection configured in my laptop? I wanted to check with you guys before I start trying it for myself because above all I don't want to mess up my wired connection!
I am running Windows 2000 on my laptop, a Linksys cable router BEFSR41, and a cable modem at home with 2 PCs hooked up.
Thanks for your help,

Two months ago I posted on another thread that my son will be entering community college this fall (yeah, I'm old) and will be pursuing an A.A. degree in Digital Design and then move on to a 4 year institution. At the time I was researching and I am still researching but further along. The core courses he will be doing are Color & 2D Design, Graphic Design, Art with Computers, Web Graphics, Animation, and Web Page Design plus other art classes. In addition he will be doing the standard Word docs, surfing the net, term papers, etc.
I also know he must be able to run Adobe Flash CS5 and there will be animation software involved but I have not been able to find out anything else -- I've tried.
The central parameters I've tentively settled on for a laptop configuration are: 15.6" display no less than 1600x900 and if I can in Matte; either a Nvidia 540M or 520M video card (this will be an Optimus laptop) , 4 gigs of RAM, i7 2630QM processor (this is a quad core), a 320 GB harddrive @7200 rpm, and Windows 7 64.
Anyway, what I would like to know from you guys is this: In light of his course work is this "overkill"? Would the 520M suffice? Onboard graphics will work in some case but a) Intel's latest 3000 is meh and b) Nobody is offering the AMD Fusion 3850 with it's substantially better onboard graphics except HP in their dv6z series and I refuse to ever purchase another HP laptop ever again.
