I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

How to install windows xp on this HP model HP 630 NOTE BOOK PC i tried to preview the Bios environment but i could not see where to change SATA to IDE option.

A:WIN XP ON HP 630 NOTE BOOK PC

In the Bios look for HDD Mode or SATA. Here change the HDD mode from AHCI to IDE or Compatibility mode.
If you can't find that and are having problems getting the SATA drive recognized, then you can slipstream the SATA driver into your XP Disc with nLite.

Hello Everyone

I'm trying to put a fresh OS in a desktop that is Hp and a friend had this Xp cd from a old laptop. The desktop is about the same age. So can you use this cd from a notebook to a desktop ??? Any help would be great.

Thanks alot

A:Can you use a Hp note book OS cd in a desktop

Is this a Windows XP Disk or a Recovery Disk Set? If it's a Windows XP Disk *NOT GIVEN TO YOU FROM THE OEM, bought straight from the box of Windows XP.. Not from the box with the laptop* Then it will work. Most recovery disk sets are "MotherBoard" Bound. This means once on a different Motherboard, the disk will not work.

If it's a Recovery Disk, it will say:

Company Name
Recovery Disk for ___ Model Number

This was distributed by ____ for brand new ______ computers.

And so on and so forth.

Hello All,
This is my first post here. Please excuse me if I seem uneducated on this subject.

I write because I would like to improve the audio quality on my lap top. I am planning on buying some high quality head phones so I can watch movies and listen to music in private.
I have the HP Pavilion dv6-1245 dx, product number NV068UA. It has all of the factory hardware still installed.
Can someone help me find a good program for this. A program with equalizers and the such, options for setting diff sound types? Hope you understand what I mean. Also, did I give enough tech info?
Thanks in advance for any help/suggestions.

PS: Should have asked. What are some really good/best over the ear head phones for a PC?

First follow these steps to get a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7. Read the Special notes for Samsung owners at the end.

After all Updates are installed import only the drivers missing in Device Manager, test drive it to determine with certainty what isn't working correctly. Then look on the Support Downloads webpage for your model for extra software and Hotfixes which address the problems. We can help you if necessary.

Have you tried using a pre-boot diagnostic disk like this one? Its a boot disk that has a variety of tools, in this instance, you could try the anti virus programs that are included. Some virus' hide within the Windows operating system, and cannot be detected when the OS is loaded, so instead, using this disk will allow scanning of all files, even the hidden ones.
Your best bet (on that webpage) is to download one if the ISO files (at the bottom of the page) and burn it to CD, its the easiest method.

Hi, all!

I wish to purchase an HP dv5000t series laptop with a 12 Cell Li-Ion battery, but I saw a diagram on the HP site which showed a bulky mass at the back of the laptop, compared to a 6 cell which did not have this. It seems that such a laptop will not be able to sit flat on a desk.

Does anybody know from experience if this will be the case? If so, how bad of an angle is it? Will it interfere with normal use, etc?

Thanks! Your help is appreciated.

Hi Lenovo experts - I am having a strange issue with my new X270 laptop. I have been using it for over 3 weeks now. The X270 came with an integrated Li-Ion 3-cell battery (23 Wh) and also an external Li-Ion 3-cell battery  (23 Wh). With very light usage (just outlook and office apps) and brightness set to 25%, I can barely get 2h-2.5h of battery life. Is this normal? Per the PSREF, 3+3 cell should give me ~13h of battery life.  Anything else I can check? I did a 'battery report' and I see on average 45 Wh of charging capacity when active. However 'Battery life estimates' show between 2h-3h at full charge. 'Current estimate of battery life based on all observed drains since OS install' is showing 3:50.  Do I have a defective battery? Any advice appreciated!

A:my note book is made hard reset

cmouli Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!I read your post about activation problems since you reset your Win10 laptop and wanted to help. 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.Your original Win10 was activated through something known as Digital Entitlement -- which is what MS terms an in-place upgrade from a prior OS.  Once that is done, information about your PC is stored on the MS Activation servers and after that, any Win10 reinstall will automatically reactivate -- unless you change the version from the one that was originally activated. The product key on Win8x machines is not printed on a sticker, instead, it is embedded in the UEFI firmware of the motherboard.  You can retrieve that key using this tool:  Download Windows OEM Product Key Tool - MajorGeeks Once you have that, you should be able to activate Win10 using that key. Good Luck========================================================================I am a volunteer and I do not work for, nor do I represent, HP.---------------------------------------------------------------If my posts helped you, please click the Thumbs-Up symbol to say thanks.If my posts solved your problem please click "Accept As Solution".========================================================================

RELEVANCY SCORE 59.6

Hi,I upgraded from Windows 8 to Windows 10 yesterday but when my computer restarted it will only show the HP symbol when booting up. I cant laod up the BIOS or anything from the keyboard when it loads up. I wondered if there is anyway of loading up the BIOS so I can install a new operating system through a bootable ISO image from a USB drive. Nothing will work or load up can anyone think of a solution which doesnt involve wiping the hard drive? Thank you
