upgrading Envy m6 1125dx with SSD, are there any limitations...

Q: upgrading Envy m6 1125dx with SSD, are there any limitations...

I'm interested in swapping out my current HDD and replacing it with an SSD. Are there any limitations on the size of SSD I can install? Will a 1tb work or am I limited to 512gb or anything like that?Are there any complications I should be aware of while considering this upgrade?Thanks a bunch!

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/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

See p. 48 of the Manual here: M6 service Manual https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d7kLMZoGoTs There is no limit to the SSD you can install other than your budget. Any 2.5 inch SATA SSD that is 7mm thick which almost all are. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA6BM3T90744&cm_re=Samsung_850_Evo-_-20-147-373-_-... The Samsung Evo 850 is my choice but OCZ, Kingston, several others make a good product so as long as it is a name brand you can shop on price and there are deals to be had. Software reinstallation/migration can be hard but if you have Windows 10 you always know you can download an install disk and you do not need a Key Code to reinstall and it will activate when you connect to the internet. Windows 10 allows you to make a system image and you can also use cloning software. Many ways to skin the cat. Post back with the inevitable follow-up questions.

#HPExpertDayHinges are part of the cabinet/housing and the part is not available seperatly. The parts/components inside the compuer can be bought and fixed. The housing/cabinet cannot be purchased and even if you try to buy a non approved one the ports on the computer will not match, hence I would say you cann HP and setup a serivce or take the unit to a authorized service center.Another problem: Even if you were able to get your hands on replacement hinges, you should have very good knowlege to fix the hinges as you will have to take the whole computer apart to fix it.Refer:http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/New-case-for-hp-envy-m6-1125dx/...

Some time ago, I noticed my left hinge wasn't working correctly. I began to split the computer apart while opening and closing. I've seen this is a pretty wide-spread issue with this model and i'd like to know what can be done. I've just been keeping it open, as to not make it completley unusable, but that's not a real solution.Thanks for your help!

I bought an HP Envy m6 1125dx from Best buy in 2012 and for the past couple of months, I have noticed that the Right hinge between my screen and laptop body getting looser. Initially it was very little and I was able to open and close the laptop. But now the right hinge completely broke and the left hinge is getting looser. Also plastic frame just above the right hinge is broken. Now I am not able to open the laptop. Apart from the hinge issue, my battery also got some issues. It?s not getting charged even if I plugged for more than 3-5 hours. It looks like the battery is dead. I don?t have warranty on my laptop now. But I did googled and the forum says, this is common issue with M6 1125dx.Can someone please help me how can I get this laptop fixed? Please help. Thanks.

I'm interested in purchasing an HP ENVY 720-220 computer. The specs look great, but I'd love to upgrade the RAM. According to the product specifications, it is upgradable to 16 GB. Now, my question is, would HP be willing to upgrade the RAM themselves if I paid an additional fee? I know the guide to upgrade RAM is online, but I'd rather not take the risk and mess up the machine.  Thank you ahead of time.

Hello, I would like to upgrade the GPU and PSU on a  HP Envy H8-1437c.  The GPU I am wanting to upgrade to is the GEFORCE GTX 970.  It is 10" in length, PCI Express 3.0,  and a dual port (or double wide?).  The PSU is  a  EVGA Supernove Nex650G.  Are there any proprietary power connectors on the current psu that I should be worried about? Am I able to upgrade the current GPU (NVIDIA GeForce GT 620 )to the GEFORCE GTX 970? Thank you very much!

Schwaa, welcome to the forum. This was a very good review of how you upgraded your computer.  What you discovered are the problems that are created by a mid-size case.  It would be great if HP would offer a full size case for their gaming computers.  What you accomplished should make a major difference in performance.

Hi, I had a problem with my old HDD installed on my HP ENVY 15-j012la, so I bought a new 240 gb SSD (Crucial BX200). I replaced the HDD with the SSD, then turn the laptop ON with the USB Win10 image to install it on the SSD, but the installer didn't recognized it. I gave format to the SSD, but the problem remains. I've read that the SATA should be changed in the BIOS, but this laptop has the InsydeH20 3.7 and there's no way to change to AHCI. I would be very grateful if you could help with this issue! Best !

Hello,Since I have some basic computer knowledge but I want to be sure before going for it, I need your advice. I own a HP ENVY Sleekbook 4-1000en and I recently upgraded hard drive and OS.I am thinking of upgrading RAM as well, as far as I know you need 2 memories of the same type so I guess I can?t just buy another 4 GB one right?Do I need 2 x 4 GB DDR3 of the same type to make it work? For example would these ones work finehttp://www.corsair.com/en/vengeance-8gb-high-performance-sodimm-memory-upgrade-kit-cmsx8gx3m2a1600c9 ?Lastly does upgrading memory require any other configurations after plugin them in?

I picked up a refurbished HP ENVY 750-137C, and am currently looking to upgrade the graphics. I don't want to break the bank, but I do want it to last me some time, so I'm looking at the Nvidia GEFORCE GTX 1070.  Aside from the changes in power requirements, does anyone know if this card would be compatible, and if there are any issues to this upgrade? Also, Nvidia recommends a 500W power supply for this card. Would that be enough, or is that genrous number? Additionally, if anyone has a power supply product they would recommend for this theoretical combination, I would greatly appreciate the advice. Thanks!

A:Upgrading to GTX 1070 Graphics Card for HP ENVY 750-137C

@Drifterx311?, welcome to the forum. Here are the full specs of the card on nVidia's website.  The card is double slot and 10.5" in length.  I suggest measuring from the Back I/O plate to the front of the case to see how much space is available.  I believe that it will fit, but it will be tight. As you stated, the specs recommend a 500W power supply unit (PSU).  Personally, I would buy one with at least 600W.  This will give you some extra power for peak needs.  I like Corsair products.  Here are some PSU's for you to review at Newegg.  If you choose a modular PSU it will allow you to only install the cables that are absolutely necessary.  This allows for better airflow.  The PSU is the backbone of the computer.  Read the Customer Reviews to see what users have to say about them.  A good PSU will make your system run much better. Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

The service guide for the HP Laptop ENVY 17-j013cl indicates the largest SSD that is compatible is 160GB.  Does the service guide state this because, at the time the ENVY 17 was produced, the largest SSD was 160GB?   Or is the system limited to 160GB SSD, for some reason? Thanks.

As bad as Me has been ever since I built this computer and put it on, I still have it. But enough of that... this isn't really a problem but just a simple (and probably unnecessary) question. I always thought that every windows platform had a 512 MB ram limitation except Xp and maybe win2k (wasn't sure on 2k)... but I was sure that Me couldn't do it. I just bought 512 MB and for kicks put all 640 in to see if it would post and it did. However I was under the impression that it couldn't take more than 512 so I was just wondering if I could expect problems down the line with this much in. I could always take the two 64s out and keep them until I get Xp (which will be soon) since the difference between 512 and 640 isn't as noticable as that between 128 and 256. Thanks for the help.

I have a Dell 4th gen XPS system running a Pentium 4 650 3.4Ghz CPU.
I recently went onto tigerdirect.ca to purchase a new CPU, and picked out the Intel Core 2 Duo E6750. This has a bus speed of 1333Mhz, which I just read may not be compatible with my current mobo even though it's an LGA775 socket.
Did I buy the wrong CPU? Can anyone tell me what the best compatible dual-core CPU would be for this system?

Hello Friends.
The downstairs computer (familiy PC) is the one I am currently trying to cool a bit. While this PC is on 22 hrs a day, and with the temperatures getting warmer outside, the temperature of the CPU is 60C - 65C standard. This is a Emachine PC (yeah I know, but this is really my dads PC, my is a custom frankenstein) and I called them to find out if there is any extra spots to put new case fans, or any extra fans for that matter. They told me dissapointing news, that there isint any more pin connectors to plug the fans into. So I am stuck with a crappy Cooler Master fan/heatsink combo that raises my cpu temperature to 60C in a matter of 30 min.
What can I do to reduce this speed in my situtation.
Thanks.
 

A:Cooling on limitations

You can run extra fans off the power-supply. Look for types that have the molex-connector-plug, either the small one like for floppies or the big ones like for HD or CD. Buy a splitter-cable (Y-cable) if you have no more free leads coming from the PSU.

Hi there,

I have a VPS running Windows 8.1 Professional x64, the plan I'm on is 4x CPU however Task Manager and System shows only two cores. I've contacted my provider and they ensure me that I have 4 cores and they don't know why my 8.1 installation is only using two of the four.

I understand that each version of Windows has different limitations and allowances, I'd like to know if using 8.1 in a virtual environment is somehow restricting the use of the other cores?

If you have a relatively new system there should be no limitations.

On older systems sometimes the BIOS needed to be flashed.
In the case of XP you need SP2 for larger drives.

Otherwise there should be no problems

I will start with saying that I have an old motherboard - I have an M3A78-CM (AM2). Say, if I wanted to upgrade my processor to an intel i7 I couldn't do that because my motherboard won't support it, right? Okay, I have two questions to ask.
1. If I buy a new motherboard and replace it with the older one, will all my RAM, CPU, GPU and other stuff be recognized by a newer generation motherboard, since you can pretty much see that I have a fairly old system configuration.
2. I don't know how to put this, but can somebody find me the maximum, high-end CPU that THIS motherboard can support? I'm sorry but I don't really understand much about motherboards.}
Oh... and one last thing. Can THIS processor be supported by my motherboard? And how good is it? Thank you for your time.

A:Are there any motherboard upgrade limitations?

If you get a new motherboard that is anywhere near a recent design and model, it will NOT use DDR2 RAM, which is what you have now.

You'd need to buy DDR3.

I don't know much at all about AMD processors, so can't identify the strongest processor that can be used on your current motherboard.

But---the rule of thumb is to NOT spend a lot of money putting new stuff on really old motherboards. You are generally better off replacing the motherboard, RAM, and CPU unless you are really restricted by budget.

It is possible there is a relatively cheap AMD processor that would be a worthwhile significant upgrade for your motherboard. Someone else will have to answer that.

and have access to the total drive? I am thinking about getting a netgear router with USB connection feature and connecting this large drive on a netgear network but all my computers use windows XP.

Thank you,

Hi,

I'm developing an MFC application in MSVC++ on Win XP. After creating a dialog box using the Resource Editor I started copy/pasting Edit Boxes in the main dialog box. All goes well until I've pasted 224. Then no more edit boxes can be pasted (the paste option is greyed out) in fact I cannot add any other type of control at all.

Does anyone know what is going on ? Thanks for any help.

I want to capture a screenshot from an avi file. I?ve tried playing it in Windows Media Player, pausing the movie, and hitting ?print screen.? But when I paste the image (into paint or photoshop), I get a black square where the movie shot should have been. If I leave Windows Media Player open and move my paint window over the media player window, I can see the paused image in the black square area (when the black square is aligned with where the movie is in the background).

Does anyone know why this happens? Is it a quirk of the media player to not allow what it?s playing to be print screened?

Is there a way around this? (A better way to take screenshots?)

A:The limitations of “print screen” - help!

yeah this is normal its a protection so you can't steal shots. Kinda stupid way i know.
I haven't actually figured/tried another way because onetime i was doing it i found something really neat. if you save that picture and make it your desktop image you have the Movie Playing right on your desktop. and it uses no more Resources than Media Player itself.

Sorry I wasn't helpful in this matter.

Hi everyone,

I am trying to write an application, and I wonder if there is a limitation on how many cases you can have on a Select Case?
I have 200 maybe more window series (types) so I need to make some calculations depends of the type of window I am working with. So I will need 200 cases. Am I way off..?

Any ideas would be appreciated.
Thanks

Will it revert back to the EXACT state your pc was in at the time or will it still remember your latest bookmarks/downloads/registry/data files settings etc that you have changed since creating the restore point?

I'm about to install GTA4 and as ths new pc was build specifically for me to work on audio production, i'm a bit sceptical of sticking this game on here but was bought it for xmas and my pc can handle the spec, and i do get bored from time to time.

If it messes with my audio settings and reverts back to older versions of flash/direct x/codecs etc during the installation (contains flash, directx and codec files) then i wont be very impressed and will be relying on system restore to put my pc back to exactly how it was before this game went on.

I figured any p4 would work but not sure about the athlon 64fx or the dual and quadcore... or the migration from a 32 bit setup to a 64 bit setup...

Currently I have two reports - one showing the first 7 questions and the other showing the rest, but the client (and I) are not particularly satisfied with this - it requires my client to do a lot of sorting to bring the pages together for a sensible report, and I cannot page number things.

Running Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit on my laptop. Status bar in Recycle Bin shows individual file sizes and sum of file sizes until more than 15 are selected. Once 16 or more files are selected, a Show more information link appears which does nothing. Yesterday, I wanted to open numerous small pdfs. Selecting and opening more than 15 pdfs at one time had no effect. 15 or fewer and they would open.
Is there a hack around this annoyance and is it different in other versions? I really like to see Recycle Bin summary info in the status bar. I read somewhere that some people use a different File Manager which would show this information and possibly allow many files to open. I really don't want to go that route.
thanks

A:[SOLVED] File access limitations?

Hello Herpfan,

This is because Windows 7 has a limit of only being able to open 1-14 files at a single time per default. If you want to change this, you need to go into the Registry and change a value.
Go to Start > Search.
Type "regedit" > Hit ENTER.
Navigate to the following registry path:
HKCU/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Explorer/.

Change the "MultipleInvokePromptMinimum" value from 15 to 16. (16 being unlimited).

I'm using a Dell Inspiron 1501, and in 2 weeks I've had 2 hard drives die on me. The Dell technician told me that it's because my laptop will not support a hard drive over 120gb, and the two I were using were both 500gb. Both drives worked for around 4 days, before dying to the point where they couldn't even start up anymore. Do different systems actually have limitations on the size of hard drives that can be used on them? Am I doomed to keep killing hard drives if I buy them over the size of 120gb or did this technician not know what he was talking about?

It`s my brothers laptop, running 98se. I downloaded Adaware latest version, and updated. I ran adaware, can you believe it, it found 700 items that needed to be deleted. Just to make sure I told adaware to quarantine all 700, just in case, adaware said they were quarantined. Next I told adaware to delete the items, adaware froze immediately. I have tried this 4, or 5 times with the same response, even after rebooting. I even tried deleting smaller amounts, with the same results. I was just wondering if I had overloaded adaware with the large amounts of data that needed to be deleted, and how I might overcome the freezing of adaware. I have been using adaware for about 3 years now myself, and have never had this happen before, but, then I have never had to delete 700 (LOL) items before. Any imput will be much appreciated.

Hello,

I am trying to download a address list from some POS software. I obtain the list through the software, and then download it as a .txt file to the A: drive. (that's the only option the POS software allows).

The problem I'm having is that after it goes to the A: drive and I open the text file in Notepad it only shows a portion of the address list. It's showing approximately 2650 lines of addresses (with more info that just addresses) even though in the POS software there is between 5000 - 20000 lines of addresses.

Is there a limit as to how many characters can be placed in Notepad? Or do you see any other problems with my situation? Any help or advice would be appreciated.

Is a simple solution, You need a terminal server. You need to uninstall QB, configure the server as a terminal server, reinstall QB, purchase Terminal server license pack,configure the terminal server license server and you are good to go!

Oh, I am assuming that this is not your domain controller.

Also I have never configured QB to run on a Terminal Server, so I don't know what Intuit requires with this model.

A:Size/length limitations for DVDs

If you're burning it as a video, then there is a 2 hour limit (on 4.7gb DVDs), this means that the software is making a folder called VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS on the disc and the DVD player will treat it as a movie

If you're burning it as data, ie just copying your newly made video file onto the disc, then your limit is 4.7gb (the 2 hours is irrelevant now), be warned though, some DVD players can't play video files when stored as data on the disc, you'll just have to try it out and see if it works

I am building a new system and began to wonder about the limitations that HD's would put on SATA. Basically, I have been thinking about getting a solid state storage device (for boot drive) and wonder if there is any point to going with sata III.

OK, so here is the question: If the read rate is 300 MB/s and write 275 MB/s then would there be any difference between 3.0 GB/s and 6.0 GB/s transfer speeds?

It just seems to me that when reading with both transfer speeds the rate would be 300 MB/s and when writing the buffer would full up in a few microseconds while the drive is writing 275 MB/s.

Any help from someone with more technical knowledge is appreciated.

No, I personally am not going to tell you how to get around network security. I'm sure the admin had a good reason to put these restrictions in place and if you have a problem with that, you can take the matter up to him personally.

My answer is, I have no idea... I wouldn't even begin to try put some kind of math calculation on it. While a P4 computer can still be useful for lots of tasks, it is outdated by several years. A faster computer is the easiest answer and the best solution. The more programs and files you install on any hard drive, the slower your access times will be.

A:Upgrade paths and future limitations

Hello jaebberwock. Welcome to the Eight Forums.

You mentioned "in case I don't like Windows 8" so I guess you haven't used it yet.
Based on that assumption, I would suggest downloading Windows 8 Enterprise Evaluation for free. (good for 90 days) Burn it to a dvd. Do you know anything about imaging? Do you have any external drives? I would consider learning a little about external drives so that you could make some images? Are you on a budget? Can you afford to spend a few bucks on imaging software? Search online for imaging software. You could image your XP system without affecting it by an upgrade. Same with Vista or Windows 7. Image what you want to save so that they could be returned to the condition they were in. I cannot help you with your questions about upgrading licenses and keys so maybe someone else will chime in. Personally, I am not a fan of dual booting, many problems could happen. Opinions vary.

Download Windows 8 Enterprise Evaluation

From my point of view, I would image backup XP, Vista, Windows 7 using the software of your choice (perhaps something like Acronis). Then, install Windows 8 on unallocated space. Do you know what unallocated space is? I apologize. I know nothing about what you know. Anyway, good luck. There are tutorials here:
