Q: No RJ45 Ethernet connection seen: HP Elitebook 8540w win7 pr...

Hi folks, I just bought a HP Elitebook 8540w with i7 2.67GHz Quad Core 8GB DDR3 and loaded it with a Cruzer (r) 250 GB Solid-state drive then loaded Win 7 Pro. Don't see a wireless device showing up in Device Mgr. but thought I could get around that and hook up to our WIFI modem (Infinity Technicolor TC8305C) as it's got 3 available RJ45 jacks out the back, but when I go into network adapters in Device Mgr, don't see anything about RJ45 and it doesn't show a connection in Network and Sharing Center and I let Win 7 troubleshoot and it says I don't have drivers for Ethernet Controller and Network Controller. Is there somewhere I can go to get a big fat file with ALL the drivers for networking in it? Maybe this will fix the WIFI too? But I don't think there's a wireless card physically in the unit and have one on the way. Thanks for any help, Jon

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.)

Hi, Jon: You just need to install the drivers for the ethernet and network controller devices. Those are the wired and wireless network adapters. Here is the wired one... This package contains the driver installation package for the Intel 82577LM or 82577LC Gigabit Ethernet Controller in supported notebook models that are running a supported operating system. ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp53501-54000/sp53806.exe Please post the hardware ID for the Network Controller device, so I can figure out what model wireless network adapter is installed in your notebook. To find the hardware ID, click on the Network Controller and then click on the Details tab at the top of the Network Controller window. Now you will see a Property drop down list, and it will be set to Device Description. Drop down on that list and select the 2nd item (Hardware ID's). Post the top string of characters that you see in the window.

A:HP Elitebook 8540W CPU Upgrade !!

Hi: The processor you want is not supported as shown in the posts above + there are different system boards to even upgrade to a quad core processor if you only have a dual core processor. The BIOS update release notes indicate no support added for the processor you wanted to upgrade to either. http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=4096175&swItem=ob-92682-1&prodNameId=4097219&swEnvOID=4059&swLang=13&taskId=135&mode=5 Here is the link to the service manual:  Please refer to Chapter 3, page 26. Look at system boards.  As you can see, there is one system board for the dual-core processors: 520M, 540M, 620M, and a different system board for the quad-core processors: 720QM, 820QM http://bizsupport1.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c02196457/c02196457.pdf So, if you don't already have a 720QM in your notebook, you can only upgrade your notebook with one of the dual core processors. Paul

Hi, and welcome to Tech Support Forum.

Try using only the display card drivers from http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport...OID=4060#11360

NVIDIA drivers may not work well with the HP power schemes. The drivers on the HP site are often specially designed to work with the system's specific power schemes.


Recommendations:
crashes were DirectX/graphics card related. DirectX comes installed with Windows, so this may indicate Windows corruption. It may also be that you have corrupted drivers or a graphics card hardware problem.
If you are overclocking any hardware, please stop.

Run a system file check to check Windows for corruption: Click Start Menu
Click All Programs
Click Accessories
Right click Command Prompt
Click Run as administrator
Type
Code:
sfc /scannow
and press Enter
Once it is complete, make note of the message. If it says Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations., restart your computer and post back
If the message does not say Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations., restart your computer and do steps 1-6 again.
You may need to do steps 1-6 up to three times with a restart in between each run to resolve all corrupted files.
If you still have corrupted files after a fourth run, post back here with the following:Click Start Menu
Click Computer
Open your C: drive
Open Windows

Hello,

I have a freshly installed Windows 7 Ultimate x64 on my HP EliteBook 8540w laptop that is causing a huge amount of BSODs. I installed the OS personally only a couple of days ago using a retail Windows 7 DVD and downloading the very latest drivers from the HP site.

This laptop model (HP EliteBook 8540w) has a well known history of having an unstable Windows 7 video driver and in fact also my previous installation was unstable but previously I only experienced crashes that the OS managed without any BSOD ever occuring while now I'm having continuous BSODs.

It seems that a recent (automatic) installation of DirectX drivers caused constant BSODs during OS startup and I had to restore a previous stable version of the installation to be able to log back into the OS.

I have a couple of minidumps I'm attaching here.

Hi FolksI have a HP 8540w elitebook, with the Nvidia Quadro FX 880M, Win 7 x64 Pro, Core i7 620M.My question is: is it possible to upgrade the graphics card to a Nvidia Quadro K1100M or K2100M?At the level of standards connector boards and architecture seems everything is compatible. Standards of PCI-E 2.0 and 3.0 write compatible in both directions. But I have heard that HP as it blocks the BIOS setup other devices if they are not supplied by the plant. is this true? If so then it turns out that the maximum that you can put it FX1800M he enters one of the options set .. Or perhaps take K1100M / K2100M from new generations of HP 85XX, or can be of laptops from other manufacturers ?? Another alarming fact that K2100M consumes 55W, while the card installed HP in particular FX1800M consume 45W. With the cooling system is quite clear that to do, but is there enough electrical power?Thank you.

1. The memory simply downclocked and is running at 1333 speed.  2. There is no video card whitelist but you have to be really careful with MXM video cards. Be sure the heatsink is in the same location as the original and you have the same kind of MXM card; i.e the insertion edge is the same. If all that is true you can swap out video cards but it is a major job.

Hello folks, I have an HP Elitebook 8540w laptop which serves me well, except for one thing: bluetooth. This laptop has bluetooth 2.1+EDR out of the box. The project is to get to bluetooth 4.0 (or, at the minimum, to bluetooth 3.0) and the question is how.The bluetooth board is easily accessible by removing a small plastic cover on the front of the laptop (one screw). The board has BCM92070md on it (I can enclose a photo). 1. From my initial research, it seems that 4.0 cannot be reached via driver update, but  3.0 can be.Can somebody confirm  (or deny) this and if affirmative, point me to a download location for a driver?2. Is it possible to replace the (easily accessible) bluetooth board for bluetooth 4.0? If yes, what are the specifications of such board?3.  A little puzzle (for me, at least): the Elitebook model 8470p has bluetooth 4.0 (confirm or deny) and it seems that the bluetooth board is the same BCM92070md. How come this has 4.0? Is there some other hardware involved in the bluetooth operation (on top of the antennae, of course)?  Thnaks for your time.

Please advise where I can get the validity fingerprint driver for Windows 10 for my PC.  It is not on the driver page for this laptop, yet should be available I think.

A:Validity fingerprint reader for Elitebook 8540W Windows 10 6...

Hi: HP does not support your notebook for W10. https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c05195282 The only suggestion I can offer would be to try the W7 fingerprint sensor driver from your PC's support page. This package contains the driver that enables the Validity Fingerprint Sensor in supported notebook models that are running a supported operating system. The fingerprint sensor scans fingerprints for use with biometric security applications. 4.5.133.0 Rev.A    Jun 20, 2014 http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp66501-67000/sp66915.exe If that works, and you want to use the fingerprint sensor to log in, see if installing the W10 Client Security Manager software works to enroll your fingerprint. This software supercedes the HP ProtectTools software. HP Client Security Manager provides enhanced Windows login and website single-sign-on capabilities. Security Manager is also the host for HP Client Security plugins, and therefore should be installed before other Client Security modules. This package is provided for supported models running a supported operating system. http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp74001-74500/sp74101.exe

I have a home stereo reciever that will take a wireless usb signal and allow me to play mp3 music off my computer and into my home stereo.The problem I have is that the signal is only good for 30M and my rooms are too far apart.Is it possible to use the network wiring that I already have installed in the house(they are not currently being used)...buy the USB adaptors and wire directly into my home reciever???
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thats a good question, Infact, to what im reading you want this


Computer>USB to Ethernet > Ethernet cable > Ethernet to USB Reciever?

I dont see why that wouldnt work, but then again, I dont know that much about transmitting wireless signals and such.

I notice that Ethernet RJ45 Cat5e cables vary considerably in price - with the most expensive costing 5 times the least expensive.

Is there any real benefit to purchasing an expensive Ethernet patch cable? And if there is what is the benefit?

Try restoring the system to before the updates (should be one just before installing them) - System Restore

If working afterwards, then install them again one by one, a restart after each and check connectivity.

Hey Guys,

I need to get a crimp tool to make a few ethernet wires. I have been looking at the prices on those things and they are extremely high (upwards of $50!).

I just need something to get the job done and that will work fine? Do you have to go with an expensive crimp tool to get good results, or can you go with a generic brand?

Where should I look to buy them? Which have you used/liked?

Hi,

I have a Desktop PC with Windows 8.1 Enterprise. 

Using USB 3G Dongle and following connector (USB Female to Male Ethernet RJ45 Connector Adapter)



May I access Internet?

GN Jha

A:Internet with USB Female to Male Ethernet RJ45 Connector Adapter

Its depend your airtel dongle speed, but I will suggest if you plug in directly to USB port, because LAN port will be another barrier which also affecting your airtel dongle speed, it not good idea, because if your LAN port having some issue it will
wasting your time to do TS.
I think this device very useful if you using it to connect a USB ADSL modem to a router with an RJ45 socket, not for the female USB. Yes, it can add more USB port option in your PC, but I prefer to use other USB port extension with many usb port
rather than this device
But that's my point of view, its still depend on you

Hi.. I am trying to connect my new router which has an RJ45 connection, to Cablevisions coaxial which is connected to my old Netgear router.
I would like to know which is the best route to take in terms of connecting the new router. Do I have to contact the service provider or is there something I can use like an adapter?. Can anyone help in how to go about this?. Thanks.
 

A:Solved: RJ45 to Coax connection assistence

The coaxial cable is plugged into a modem. That is then plugged into a router.
Like this: http://www.home-network-help.com/images/home-network.jpg
It sounds like in your case the router and modem are a single unit. You may want to connect the the new router to the old router.

I bought a Elitebook 745 G3 about a month ago and wiped/installed Windows 7 with a bootable UEFI USB 3.0 drive with absolutely NO problems.  It worked like a champ.Now...here's the kicker.  I ordered a second 745 (both of these were bought from CDW...so it was a legit/reliable vendor) and attempted to wipe/install Windows with the EXACT same USB flash drive, using the same process.  But for some reason I'm getting the following error... "Load Driver  -  A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing.  If you have a driver floppy disk, CD, DVD, or USB flash drive, please insert it now"I've seen a similar message before, mostly on servers asking for the RAID controller driver, but never on a laptop.  I read that Intel is no longer shipping USB 2.0 with their new processors.  But this is an AMD...so that shouldn't apply.  I'm totally stumped.  I've been trying to get the OS installed and here's what I've tried...with results.Tried moving the USB drive to a different port.  Same result.Tried to turn off USB 3.0 in the BIOS....this BIOS doesn't have that distinction.  Only the ability to disable USB all together.I can still boot to the shipped OS.  Flashed the BIOS with the latest from HP hoping I'd gain the ability to disable USB 3.0.....no dice.Tried booting to legacy rather than UEFI....same resultCreated a new UEFI bootable flash drive (Win7) on a USB 2.0 stick....same result.Booted to the shipped OS ...
