how can i enable my bluetooth(pavilion dm1)
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.)

This happened couple days ago when my laptop started to act like crazy.. It used to freeze but two days ago it shuts down when I'm in the middle of doing something like Photoshop.. It even shut down while posting this thread once..
I thought it'd be a problem with the windows so I installed a fresh one but yet the problem is not solved..
And after some search on internet I came up with some apps like HDD and CPUID Monitor and here's a snapshot of the scan, and I wish someone of TECHSPOT family would help, that'll be so much appreciated..
I'm trying to connect my PC and my Asus Zenfone 2 with Bluetooth. When I use the "add a device" wizard on Windows 8.1, my mobile phone is detected, but when I try to add it I get: "Windows doesn't have a network profile for this device".
Also, when I try to detect my computer with my mobile phone, it´s not detected.
I'm using a Trust USB 2.0 dongle Bluetooth adapter (the little one you insert on the usb port) that came with a keyboard and mouse Bluetooth set that I used. Could that dongle be designed only for the bluetooth keyboard and mouse set?
The Bluetooth device seems fine as it already detected your keyboard and mouse. However, your phone seems not supported with the current Bluetooth device and you might need to take another look.
Have a nice pair of Bluetooth headphones and trying to get them hooked up to the sound of my older TV. Is there some kind of adapter you can buy to to hook up to the audio out of the TV so I can connect the 2 via Bluetooth? I just don't wanna pay for another pair of headphones. I just want the reciever.
I have a mystery on my hands. I received a Bluetooth speaker as a gift. The BT-4.0 adapter plugged into my computer (USB-2.0 port) detects it (as a "Bluetooth headset"), but when I try to select it as my output device (from the "Sound" Control Panel), Windows reports it as "Disconnected".
If I open "Devices and Printers" and right-click the "Bluetooth headset" icon, I get an alert that the device "Failed to initialize".
I've tried rebooting, tried a different BT adapter, updated my BT drivers off the makers' website, Device Manager shows everything is connected & working (including "Bluetooth Audio").
64bit Win7 Home. Inateck BT-4.0 usb adapter. Speaker is a "MicroBoom" BT v2.1:
PS: Eliminated the obvious. Speaker is fully charged and works just fine with my phone.
I have two cheepo USB Bluetooth adapters for my Windows 7 PC. One is a tiny generic (thumbnail sized) micro adapter, the other a small "stick" made by Rocketfish.
Both adapters install and "claim" to detect my Bluetooth speaker (misidentifying it as a Bluetooth headset. I have no headset), but the speaker doesn't detect the PC (even when clicking the Discover button.) My cellphone sees my speaker, but it too DOESN'T see my PC.
Are all Bluetooth adapters the same and if my cheap adapters won't pair with anything, neither will an expensive one? Or might there be something else going on?
Do you see any yellow (!) in the device manager when either of the Bluetooth devices are installed?
I pair my Plantronics Calisto PLT Headset to my Desktop Computer (Windows 7 x64), and it showed that everything is OK, but when I tried to use it, it didn't work.
When I press icon of sound on the taskbar and I go to Playback or Recording there is there Bluetooth Hands-free Audio but is Disconnected, and I don't have any idea how to connect this and make to work.
Can someone help me to solve this problem? I will really appreciate any help.
I did everything like supposed to be. I attached few images to show my situation.
Yesterday I bought USB BT400 Adapter.
I started everything from beginning and there is exactly the same situation. Nothing changed. If you look to the picture, everything is pair and installed and when I ask them, they said that was something wrong with Windows configuration (not 100%).
Point is that they didn't have any clue what is wrong.
I didn't mention that before when I installed USB Bluetooth Adapter, and I pair my device in the Playback and Recording devices when I tried to connect it worked for very short time and after this somehow disconnected by itself.
I don't know if I explain well what's happened, but if you want to ask something to make clear, please don't hesitate.
I have an Hp Pavilion that I got about 2 years ago and I do play games on it. One game in general which is League of Legends. My concern is that if anyone knows about this game during teamfights when the computer is operating extensively because of all the action going on I always frame lag. My frames drop only during fights. When nothing is happening my frames are okay. As well other programs on my computer run slowly now as well like windows media player and just when I'm starting programs up on my comp. This happened now so long ago and it was a sudden change. I don't know what to try anymore. I have reformatted my comp and still the same issue. Help would be much appreciated thank you.
The HP Pavilion could be over-heating. After years of use, the CPU's thermal pads and paste become hardened and this causes the CPU to run hotter and hotter causing game play to suffer
I just got a new system that is rather light on the USB ports, so I figured I'd take advantage of the built in bluetooth. That being said are there any bluetooth mice that the users of Techspot either own and like, or find appealing? I tend to like my mice full sized and being contoured for the right hand is a bonus.
I've recently bought a HP Pavilion 15-n252sq laptop, with Free Dos - unfortunately I can't install Windows 7 over it, due to the following error I keep receiveing in the Installation screen:
"Select the driver to be installed" - and regardless of the paths I have and the available folders, I can not seem to proceed wtih the W7 installation.
Please notice that, I've tried to use both a W7 DVD and also a bootable USB drive (and yes, connected in the USB 2.0 port and not USB 3.0 ) - but I always get to the same point where I have to select drivers.
Please also notice that the BIOS doesn't allow me to make any modifications except for some minor ones (like select boot priority, or enable USB 3.0), as the rest of the MAIN features are greyed out .
Can anyone please help me with this issue?
You may have to use a program Like KillDisk to reformat the drive. Then try installing your Win 7 DVD.

Have you worked on or repaired many laptops? English is not your first language?
Is there a way to use bluetooth speakers as well system speakers at the same time?
Using windows 8 6bit
and bluetooth Jawbone Bigjam speakers.
I think yes, but you need to use some other sound output manager. Windows built-in one doesn't support multiple output via different type.
Hi I was wondering what form factor type this Pc has BTX or ATX, if im wrong in saying this please point me in the right direction, I require at least a 500W PSU and I am only purchasing in australia, Maybe from china if on ebay
1gb VRAM (Nvidia Geforce 520)
Intel i7 2600 - Quad core
According the the Manufacturer details, you have a standard ATX PSU so as long as you stick with that, you can fit pretty much any inside your machine. It does look like the 300Watt version inside the machine is a bit short compared to normal PSU's, but as long as you still have space, it should fit just fine.
I got my new Asus board yesterday, but there is a switch on it called GPU Boost, should I enable or disable it?
It was enabled by default but I turned it off.
Enable it if you play games and dont have a dedicated GPU.
My old wireless setup finally crapped out so thought I d try Bluetooth with the longer range One thing I didn t know about Bluetooth at least with this particular keyboard and mouse to a small extent is that after a brief period of inactivity it unconnects or deactivates or whatever and to reactive it I have to type a key and then wait for seconds or more for it to come alive Very irritating especially like when I m trying to sign into something or am Bluetooth problems Keyboard working Bluetooth Keyboard problems on something I ve looked in the app and don t see anything where I can turn that off I don t mind replacing the rechargeable batteries more often if I can avoid that deactivating thing Any suggestions or am I just stuck with that Maybe back to quot old fashioned quot wireless At least those were quot always on quot or Bluetooth Keyboard problems whatever you d call it It s a Microsoft mobile keyboard and mouse There was a small install CD that came with them I don t know if the dongle would make any difference Thanks nbsp
Well, on the hopes there was something in the Bluetooth app that I missed, I went back and took another look.
Not much there, really. But I enabled Bluetooth Network (even tho I only have the BT keyboard and mouse and no other BT devices) and enabled sharing with other BT devices (I guess between the keyboard and mouse and dongle or ?).
None of those seemed particularly applicable when I looked at them before, but
whichever one of those did something, I did a test on the keyboard and at least
yet it hasn't shut off even waiting several minutes.
Actually, would be nice if everything PC / Windows would be that simple!
Hi all My parents have an HP Pavilion entertainment laptop that frankly didn t run well when it was new but is really struggling to open programs now I am thinking of putting in an SSD as a boot drive and moving the HDD into the optical bay and upgrading the RAM to the max of Also possibly Pavilion 1100? HP dv6 Should upgrade I upgrading to Windows I think would confuse them My dad does a lot of photo editing using Lightroom Other than that it s basic word excel amp Internet browsing only Is it worth it for me to put a few hundred dollars I figure about into the laptop or should they look for a new desktop instead It would be worth it to me to extend the life of the laptop with a view to buying new down the road Here are the current specs HP Pavilion dv t- GB RAM Intel Core Duo T Should I upgrade HP Pavilion dv6 1100? Ghz bit Vista ATI Mobility Radeon HD Thank you nbsp
I would keep the HDD, clean install Windows 7 (check out this article for help: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/clean-install, it is for Windows 8, but the same applies to Win 7), and upgrade the RAM. I wouldnt add an SSD because your CPU is pretty old and the SSD will be bottlenecked by it and therefore it would not help. I recommend Clean installing Windows over the SSD because clean installing gives the "New" PC feel to old hardware like an SSD does to semi-new PCs. The RAM will also make a huge difference. After you clean install Windows, report back and ill tell you what drivers you need (you only really need a display driver).
I think it is a good choice to wait for a new laptop down the road. This upgrade will gain you a few years, but dont expect to game on it. Keep in mind, clean installing Windows will delete all of your data! So use these sites to help assist you in your back up adventure:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/back-up-your-files (For Windows 7, but Vista is basically the same I think).
I recommend this less since it transfers old settings (which can be causing the performance hit you are experiencing) to the new install: http://lifehacker.com/5983652/how-t...without-losing-your-files-settings-and-tweaks
Windows 7 will set you back a hundred bucks: http://www.amazon.com/Windows-Premium-64bit-System-Builder/dp/B004Q0PT3I/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1366680086&sr=8-1&keywords=windows 7
But it is worth the upgrade. If you are a student you can sometimes get discounts thru Microsoft but since they want to separate themselves from Win7, they may not offer this anymore. But they still do for Win8, but it is hard to find an institutions other than universities.
Use this tool to find out what RAM supports your system: http://www.crucial.com/systemscanner (tell me if the link doesnt work since I am running OS X now and it automatically sends me to the download for OS X, so I cut off some of the URL)
Finally, install the Catalyst Software Suite after you have clean installed Windows 7 and added the RAM: http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/windows/legacy/Pages/legacy-radeonaiw-vista64.aspx
Keep in Mind: You should install the newest BIOS revision for your laptop before upgrading to Win 7 to avoid errors: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsuppor...TypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=3873224&taskId=135
Don't be afraid to ask questions . Sorry if this essay is intimidating .
I want to enable and disable internet without using enable or disable network in lan network, I want program on and off? have any program?

What? Is disabling the adaptor too hard? I'm sure there's something for this, but uh... really..?
Or do you want to disable Internet access and still have LAN access?
Hello Community My name is Andrew Fratello and I work for a computer repair shop in Florida I m new in the field at a professional level but I ve been tinkering with computers since I was a little kid I m new to this site as well and I hope it to bring me some good help with some of my future work if I cant trouble shoot it myself The HP Pavilion Dv - dx Laptop came into the shop today The problem with the PC is that it doesn t have any display HP laptop Dv6-3025dx issue Pavilion display at all You can turn it on and it will stay on just fine but even when I plug in a VGA cord connected to one of our shop HP Pavilion Dv6-3025dx laptop display issue monitors the screen still isn t displaying If it was a LCD screen issue I m sure I would have been getting video feed from the external monitor which leads me to believe that the motherboard is malfunctioning I want to double check here with you guys and get a couple opinions before I let the guy know what the problem is and what needs replacing The last thing I want to do is have the gentleman buy a new part that is worth a couple hundred and then it turning out to not have been the problem at all Please get back to me ASAP Thanks and looking forward to your responses nbsp
My guess would be the video chip. If you are not getting it on either screen.
Morning all The audio jack on my tablet has stopped working which doesn t bother me too much because I ve got some bluetooth headphones which I use to listen to my music on there However I ve got a huge flight coming up soon with my partner and there s loads of TV shows I have on it that we d ideally want to watch and listen to together If only my audio Multiple headphones bluetooth out worked I could just put a headphone splitter into it But I Multiple bluetooth headphones m trying to investigate whether you can get a bluetooth receiver like this http www amazon co uk JUSTOP-BTR -Bluetooth-Wireless-Universal dp B NDDEVQ So that receiver will pick up the audio then pass the audio into something like this http www amazon co uk Belkin-BKF s electronics amp ie UTF amp qid amp sr - Which I can then plug two sets of headphones into and bingo we can both watch and listen to the same thing on my tablet on the plane Would that work Or have I created a ludicrously complicated way of achieving this when a much simpler multi-bluetooth audio out system exists In a nutshell my question is this What s the easiest way get audio to two sets of headphones from one tablet if the audio out plug doesn t work nbsp
I dont think your bluetooth audio adapter is able to drive 2 headphones at reasonable volume level. unless, you get a small headphone amplifier. but then you'll have 3 devices connected and I think it's not worth the hassle. the amplifier itself is cheap, look for something like fiio e3. I have it and it should cost less than 10 bucks.
a single alkaline AAA battery could last for about 10h on my heavy usage. but im not sure if the bluetooth adapter could do the same.
bluetooth adapter -> fiio e3 -> 2way splitter
actually this way, it wouldnt be too much of a hassle. the 3.5mm jack of the bluetooth can be plugged directly into the fiio e3 as well as the 2way splitter.
I have a hp pavillion d4000 and I want to upgrade the processor. It has a 3.2 ghz amd but when I go to hp's website to see what the max processor I can put in it it hasl only a 2.4 ghz processor listed in the replacement parts list.
Whats the exact model number?
Hey guys so its been like a week now of me trying to get audio on my computer, Iv download, uninstall my audio drivers to my computer nothing has worked.
I had 1 Logitech headset that would only work for my computer, Any new headsets or speakers I bought wouldn't work.
When I go to my control panel> hardware and sound> device manager it says I have,Real teck higher definition installed.
The Small volume icon in the bottom right corner has an x in it, And when I open volume mixer,
It says no audio devices installed.
I already checked Bios.
Please someone help me before I go mad!
As well when I go into Dxdiag, It says error problem getting extra sound info
This is my dxdiag Shot
Also in my Msinfo32, When I clicked problem devices, Nothing showed up
Have you tried uninstalling all audio drivers and rebooting, then let windows install it's generic audio driver and see if there's sound? Sometimes another program or driver will corrupt the audio driver and requires un-installing the hardware (in Device Manager) and re-booting, then see if Windows finds a driver for it. I looked on Asus website for the latest audio drivers, but for the 4 versions of this motherboard, none have driver support for Vista or newer, only up to XP. Why are you using Vista, anyway? That's arguably the worst OS in existence, mostly because of driver problems. Still, Vista should have generic drivers for on board audio in it's driver database or you could try using the XP drivers from Asus http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_478/P4PEXSE/#download . If that doesn't work you may have a fried sound card. I've seen this problem a few times on older systems, either all drivers and everything looks good but still no sound, or drivers won't install because this hardware has a problem. In these cases I was forced to assume the output side was fried (after hours of troubleshooting and trying 3rd party drivers) and just install a cheap ($20) audio card (which probably sounds better than the on board audio anyway). I see you have PCI and PCIe slots so any card will fit. Here's a decent card for cheap; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16829132020
So I'm going to upgrade the default HDD on my laptop HP Pavilion DV6 2153.eo. There are two things that I'm not so sure of tho.
1. Can I get a SATA/III SSD HDD and throw it in the laptop <- are the SATA/III SSD HDDs backward compatible with/to SATA/II
2. What HDD should I get, it should at least be something like 180Gb but then also the price shouldn't be sky high...and then ofc I should also be able to get it here in north Europe
P.S. I'm also going to get more ram...is there anything else that can be upgraded..?
...a bump here maybe...gonna need to order the parts soon so O_o
I bought a laptop from a on line site. It is a Dell Inspiron 1545. I'am not able to connect it to my wireless printer. It tells me that installation has failed every time I try. It has a bluetooth device installed on it. Help? What should I do????
hi, I have a 2 year old emachine e630 notebook with both usb ports broken. I do not want to spend money replacing ports. I can't find detailed information about the mb except that it is an acer e630 mb. i would like to know if the mb has a socket for an internal blue tooth device or where i can find this information. I have looked at the on line manual but there is no mention of socket.
I would be very grateful for any information, and as this is my 1st post on any forum site i hope its in the right place, thank you
You could use one of these... If the PCMCIA socket is still working:
My situation is i have a 15.6 inch laptop with a screen resolution of 1366x768. Earlier i hooked up my old HP vf15 (its a 4:3 aspect ratio) which has a resolution of 1024x768. I tried setting up eyefinity, but it streched out my laptop display and it looked normal on the other monitor (this is on the desktop screen only, where you can see windows and stuff). I wanted to know if there was a way to enable eyefinity during games only. Or if theres anyway to prevent my laptops screen from stretching. Thanks in advance!
For the last month my new pc rig has ran fine, with only one BSOD wich I located and found a driver fix for it (marvell btw) but today I booted it up and now my integrated bluetooth shot me an error message. "Cannot detect bluetooth device in com port 0" Any thoughts? It was working fine till today, and I have seen a few posts from other people with same issue but no solutions. This is an Asus P8Z68-V PRO/Gen3 Motherboard.
Wow no one has any insight on this?

did you install the newest Catalyst driver or you just downloaded it? Do the "automatically detect and install"
I am sorry to bother you with something simple but I can't seem to find the right info. I have an HP Pavilion 533W that is running a 1.79GHZ processor, I have not removed it, only looked for the specs..
I have an Intel Celeron D 2.53 GHZ /256/533 that I bought new for a similar model but the motherboard ended up bad. I would like to upgrade with this extra processor I have but I can't find enough info on these to find out if it will work. I am almost down to just having to uninstall it and compare the cpu's.
I was hoping that someone would know the answer since this is not my strong point in the computer business. Thanks in advance for any help.
If the Celeron fits in the CPU socket, try it...
Hi Guys Got given a HP Pavilion DV from a friend who said it was busted i ve replaced the harddrive and ram and have got it working Last night i installed a lite version of XP with sp built in It installed perfectly in under minutes However i cannot get the wireless to work I downloaded and dv4000 on XPLite (wireless issues) Pavilion SP3 installed the drivers from the HP website and this allowed me to turn the wireless on and i get the little bubble in the bottom left corner saying there are wireless networks in range however if i click the balloon and it searches for wireless it cannot find any even though the router is right next to it After about a hour of playing around trying to get it working i downloaded another driver pack from the HP XPLite SP3 on Pavilion dv4000 (wireless issues) website and this included a wireless application i think it was HP Wireless assistant but i can confirm that later today With the application running i can find wireless connections but the actual wiress adapter still cannot find any When using the software to connect to the wireless it allows me to enter the wpa key and the windows connection says its a bridge network but it never makes it passed authencation Obviously the drivers are still wrong Can anyone point me in the right direction Cheers Nick nbsp

Some wireless configuration application disables the windows built-in wireless configuration manager so as not to cause any conflicts. Using the HP wireless assistant you can successfully connect to the network? Windows built-in cant?

hi - i was just playing music on my dell latitude e4300 via bluetooth to a belkin bluetooth receiver connected to stereo.
somehow the connection got dropped - during a phone call on a land line. may be irrelevant.
now, i cannot get bluetooth connection back. there is no bluetooth icon in the system tray.
i cannot find 'bluetooth' devices in start>control panel> devices
--i have 2, and both ought to be there.
i unplugged bluetooth receiver, and had win 7 search for devices to add - no luck.
sure, i can reboot, and everything will probably come back.
but i am hoping for a better answer. i don't want to have to reboot every time the bluetooth connection gets lost.
i searched the web for a little, but only found unrelated posts, or posts with no answer. THANKS!
bluetooth light/icon on laptop, not screen is on; no bt
ok, i rebooted, thinking the bluetooth icon would again be in system tray, with the red in the middle, showing i have bluetooth capability, but that sound is not currently being directed to bluetooth.
the dell laptop does have bluetooth icon illuminated on the laptop, just above the function keys - not on the screen at all / not in sys tray.
the bluetooth receiver is on, is working.
'add a device' is not finding this bt thingie.
I bought this thinking I could connect a bluetooth headset, I was wrong. What purposes does http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833320057 this do?
It connects your PC to any other device that is Bluetooth enabled.
For instance, mobile phone. You use it to transfer files, (mp3 .jpg or video) to or from your devices.
I have a HP Pavilion DV7 - 4285dx which comes with a Multi DVD +/- DL blah blah whatever drive in it. (no bluray)
I would like to know if I could find a replacement bluray drive for this laptop.
Does anyone know where I could find this or if this is even possible?
I would assume its possible since that I had bought a bluray drive for my PC, and it works.
After some more research I found a replacement part that should work.
For anyone looking for similar answers, the part number is 605417-001 CT21L
Just do a google search with part of that number or all to help find the correct parts.
I hav a computer that has its intergrated video card which stopped working because of the video card which is attached to the mother board .It is one of the newer post 2007 compact desktop computer with a flat screen monitor but the challenge is that the good friend of the family got an extension video card but it is too big to fit in that machine.How can I get a video card that will fit the above machine abovein which is a newer late 2000's -today.The operating system is vista.
This slimline computer probably has a PCI express 2 video slot on the motherboard. You will have to buy a small form factor or low-profile video card for the computer. They are available. Here is an example:
Notice the small adapter plate in the pictures. You may have to install it on the video card before you can install it into the computer. It is not difficult to do

Im not very good with computers, I only really know how to turn it on and type.
I got a HP Pavilion dv4 1465dx notebook last year. The RAM is 4.00 GB, and the Harddrive is 194GB free of 286 GB. It uses Windows Vista.
My sister has all of Sims2 games and expansions.
I always try and diskcleanup and get rid of unneccessary things when I can, but ive always wanted to play games with my friends but couldnt since I got it and BEFORE my sis put sims on it. Often I feel like my older desktop is faster than this.
I was wondering if there was anything I can do? When i googled many people said 4.00 GB RAM was enough to play games so im not really sure why its so slow.

Looks like you can go with any 60GB, 80GB, 100GB, or 120GB (Non SATA) Hard drive. That HD in your first link is a 9.5mm....The 9.4 is probably a typo.

How old is this computer? The power supply may be on it's way out...
i have an hp notebook (see title) running w7 sp1, that is only 13 days old. just yesterday it started making a very annoying sound. it just makes the same 2 tone sound really fast. when you click on the sound icon in the task bar the meter reads 100%. nothing has been installed recently before this started. the sound dialog box under recording shows the mic meter steady around 50% and the stereo mix meter at 100%. it's almost like constant feed back but i don't think that's it. i talked to hp and they said to upgrade my bios but the ftp link they sent me to doesn't exist. anxious to provide any other information needed. thx
It was the driver...uninstalled and reinstalled. Fixed.

hi guys. i'm basically a noob in computer hardwares,hence help me in upgrading my pc
i want to upgrade graphics to ati or nvidia 1gb card so that i would be able to play recent games like assassins creed brotherhood, stalker, crysis2.
so what budget range graphic card would you suggest in the price range of 100 - 150$(3000-5000 indian rupee)
my psu is 250 watt..is it possible to upgrade graphics without changing psu?
present pc spec
PentiumD 915 (P) DC 2.8 GHz
? 800 MHz front side bus
? Socket 775
ATI Radeon Xpress 200 for Intel Processors
? Manufacturer: ECS
? Motherboard Name: RC410M
? HP/Compaq motherboard name: Asterope3GL8E
? 200 GB SATA
? 7200 rpm
memory 2 GB (2 x 1 GB)
Slot type Quantity
PCI Three (One available)
PCI Express x16 One (One available)
I would recommend a gtx 460 or an amd 6790. Both run right around $150. For only 150 you aren't going to get anything near max settings. Also you have to upgrade your psu. The recommended amount is at the very minimum 300w for a low end graphics card. You ideally need a mid-high end gpu, but you can't get all that much better performance in your price range. You should be looking for a decent 450-550w PSU. Corsair is a good brand.
ive tried to use the memory card slot on the phone and the bluetooth but the memory card wont read and the blurtooth wont accept or send any thing any help?
Which way are you trying to send a file?
Phone to pc? Or pc to phone?
You need to make the target 'discoverable' and search from the 'source' to make a 'pair' with the target. Then find the file you want to send,(right-click) send...via..bluetooth and it will transfer.
It might be easier to get a USB cable to join phone to pc USB port.
Then open two explorer windows, and drag and drop the files across, (or copy & paste).
* Does the pc have bluetooth built-in?
The old hard drive completely failed to the point that I am unable to recover any data on it. So I put in a new hard drive and went to reinstall Vista and got the lovely error about needing to load a driver for the hard drive. I've tried every Vista driver listed and it won't load the driver for the hard drive. I flashed the BIOS, still no luck. The BIOS does not offer any options to change the settings on how to read the hard drive.
Any suggestions on what else I could try?
Somewhere in your bios there will be a setting to select which mode the hard drive is running in. You may well have a SATA drive which Vista should have drivers for but in this case you need to set the hard drive to run in IDE mode then it should install. After installation load all the mobo drivers which should then allow you to set the HD back to sata/raid operation which is much faster.
i have a tecra s1 i have installed a internal bluetooth card but cant seem to get it to work i have all the toshiba bluetooth drivers and software installed im running windoes xp pro fresh install any help would be greatfull thanks in advance
Is that a Toshiba Bluetooth card or a 3rd party card? You will have to find out the model number and make sure you have the correct driver installed for that card. I can imagine that there are several different Bluetooth cards available for that model laptop
Hi i have a hp pavilion in to look at it was not booting windows i got it going had it sitting on my desk when shutdown and displayed a hardware error message something to do with the memory.
so what i want to know is do the pavilians suffer with heat problems or any other problems that might cause this .........
All laptops suffer from heating more than desktops do. HP laptops are no better or worse than other laptops concerning heat. If you are concerned, go out and buy one of those cooling platforms for laptops. If you continue to get memory errors, check your memory using Memtest86. Let it run for 7 or more passes

if you have the version with the Asus motherboard A7V5X-LA, you are working with an AGP 4x/8x interface. They are getting scarce, but this is about as good as it gets unless you find one of the 3850's or the Geforce 9600 AGP. this one is SM3.0

#1 Click on Start and then Control Panel.
#2 Click on the System and Maintenance link.
Note: If you're viewing the Classic View of Control Panel, you won't see this link. Simply double-click on the Device Manager icon and then proceed to Step 4.
#3 In the System and Maintenance window, click on the Device Manager link near the bottom of the window.
#4 look under "Sounds, video and game controllers" you should see Creative Audigy with a red X, right click it and enabled it.
Last night I powered off my laptop, I got into work and powered it on, and to my disliking I discovered that it would turn on, the lit wifi buttons and volume controls would turn on, but the pc would not boot up. To add to the mystery of this the num lock and caps lock lights keep flashing. Anyone have any ideas as to what is wrong with my laptop?
problem resolved, my CPU went bad.
So I have this little question (out of curiosity) what UTF "version" uses Å Ä Ö and how (if it's possible) can it be enabled on a telnet server?

Hi I am seeking some assistance or advice with the above problem. Prior to resetting this laptop (Acer Aspire3680) the bluetooth dvice was fully functional but now it does not ppear as an option in the control panel nor do I see a device icon on the bottom left of the screen. thelaptop has a bluetooth toggle switch but when this is filcked a pop up sign flashes on the bottom of the screen "No Device" Can anyone advise on this matter please? Regards Keith
Prior to resetiing? You mean you used the options to restore to factory condition? Then you almost certainly just need to re-install the driver for the blue-tooth device. Read the manual, or the website support for the laptop, where you will also find the necessary driver if you cant find it on the HDD or CD's that came with the PC
Before going to work this morning I put my computer on hibernate, when I came back my wifi networking was down. It is not that I am connected to a network but cannot open internet, my wifi network does not start up. The little red light does not turn blue! I have no idea why it is not working, any suggestions appreciated.
Hey, reasons for the light not to turn blue could be a problem with the physical hardware itself, being that it somehow shorted or something along those lines.
Another reason could be that it is not being supplied power, once a computer goes into hibernation mode it is given the right to stop power to that device, and possibly once starting back up, there was no power given to the Wireless? Have you tried to shutdown the computer normally and try it again? Another reason would be that the wireless settings and everything are all controlled by a service, and maybe the service failed to start. Rather then get you to go to the exact spot and try and turn on the service, just restart the computer. If that doesn't work and you want to try and manually start the service, reply back that you would like to do so and I will try and step you through it.
Other things to try - Reinstall the drivers for the wireless adapter, you will need to go to HP's website, type in your DV9500 as well as the other numbers on the bottom of the laptop on a white sticker, located near your prodocut key usually...
if you are comfortable with opening the laptop up, on the bottom side of the laptop, one of the covers will likely have the wireless card in side, it is connected by 2 wires, a black and a white, if you go to take the card out remember where each cord goes. You can take the card out, boot up the computer, shut it down, reseat the card, and boot up the computer, see if anything comes up..
WARNING: If attempting to remove the wireless adapter card, please be aware that if the card is not damaged, you could damage the card, make sure you are grounded when working inside of the laptop, as well make sure that there is NO POWER to the laptop, this means Remove both the battery and the power cord..
Nothing else comes to mind of what it could be...
If you can't get it to work, try safe mode with networking, if still nothing, I would suggest to bring it to a shop to see if they have a way to test the physical card in a similar laptop or possibly have a new card to test in yours..
EDIT: This is something I found on the Mobile section of this forum where a fix was found on other HP Dv**** Models,
WARNING:Please read the full post that suggests the fix, as it does warn that this CAN cause further damage. This test raises the computers core temperature as well as other components to try and warm them up if there are any cold joints on it, But may damage components due to high temperatures. WARNING

Hi, if I go to Network Sharing Center, then advanced settings there are two options: Turn on Network Discovery, and Turn on File and Printer sharing."
The first one is enabled, the second one (file sharing) will not enable.
I had this problem with network discovery as well, but I did some reading and found it was a problem of not having some services started.
So I assume file sharing will not enable for the same reason.
Does anyone have any ideas on what services need to be enabled?
what are your specs? go to the properties of your network adapter and see if it has file and printer sharing for microsoft networks enabled.

Hi, I'm using windows 7 x64.
Network discovery and file sharing will not enable. My brother cannot access my shared folder from his computer (we're on a lan).
I read to enable these services:

TCP/IP Netbios helper
One or two were disabled so I started them. However Server will not start, it says: "The dependancy service or group failed to start."
Any help appreciated.
I have been given an HP laptop to look at originally the sound was not working so updated drivers and rebooted laptop on reboot it would not boot up I have tried booting up from recovery partition F but it just black screens I have tried booting Pavilion not dv9500 HP booting up from Vista disc but it just comes up with the first screen with copying files along the bottom and then it black screens Sometimes it willl restart I will press a key to boot from cd it goes through copying files with the white progress bar along the bottom and the stops with a blank screen or restarts I have tried the same with a Win disc which does the same but stops on the next screen with quot starting windows quot displayed I have run memory checks and disc checks and both were fine This has me puzzled so I am hoping you guys have a clue whats going on here nbsp
Defective hard drive is my guess.
Have you tried removing and reinstalling the partition? If you cannot do that, you should try another hard drive as a test.
I recently bought an HP Pavilion used. Here's the problem. The battery was getting ready to expire and then the computer went into "hibernation" mode. After plugging in the charger to recharge the battery and turning the computer on manually I encountered the following: The screen does not come on at all, but the computer "acts" like it's trying to start? The keyboard lights come on and I can hear the the fan start. After a few seconds it "restarts" itself and repeats this over and over. The screen never comes on through all this? Any suggestions? HELP!!! Thanks for all your replies

Cleaning Laptop KeyboardClick to expand...
Other than cleaning
You may need to physically remove the keyboard (usually via removing screws underneath laptop)
And disconnect it then reconnect it
You could also test with a USB keyboard, to confirm it's the laptop keyboard only
The hard disk crashed and I have been unable to reinstall Vista Home Premium with org. and recovery disks on new Hard Disk. Would like to reformat and install Win XP on it. Can't seem to figure out how to do it.
I get the "no operating system found" error. The HD is unformatted as it is new.
I've been all over the HP site and followed the endless loops for information, to no avail.
Any help will be greatly appreciated (sp).
You have to have a valid Windws XP install disk... HP install disks detect the hard drive, and if they are not designed specifically for that drive, they wimply will not work. You may have to buy a copy of Windows XP, then boot to it...
You will need drivers, so check to see if the HP website offers drivers for that system configuration. If not, you have to be experienced enough to locate and download them yourself.
But what you propose is very possible... just go to the HP site for your HP model, and look for what operating systems are supported.
Where can I buy one of these? Its exactly what I'm looking for to upgrade my laptop and it seems to be the only half size one in existence, but I cant find anywhere to buy it. There arent even any sketchy Hong Kong Ebay auctions for it. I understand that Atheros is probably only selling them to OEMs right now but I find it very hard to believe that none of them have made it to a venue that I can purchase from. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. Also, if you'd like to sell me one, I'm open to that too.
better buy defective laptop and get it off of it
also try craigslist
Need suggestions for system temp / fan speed monitoring software. Doesn't need to be fancy - just basics - & work.
Special ordered this Pavilion d5200t ATX - didn't come w/ any monitoring util. Was told by HP they didn't have one & AFATK, Intel didn't. If ASUS has one, couldn't find it. Seems odd.
HP support gave this link http://download.famouswhy.com/asus_p5k64_ws_asus_ai_suite_1_02_04/ , which they said "should work." Haven't tried it. Bit leery. Comments?
MB - Asus IPIBL-TX (HP: Burbank-GL8E)
Intel Quad 9400
Intel G33 chipset
If need other specs, let me know. Thanks.
This is my preferred software for temp/voltage/fan readings and monitoring
Hope it helps

Had issue with boot drive, so replaced and re-loaded Windows Vista OS.
Decided to add original drive to grab some data; so installed the old drive in Sata Port 2. The drive did not work -- I thot is might be a bad SATA cable, so started switching things around.
Net is -- drive works fine if new boot drive is in SATA port 0; and prior hard drive is plugged in SATA port 1 (where CD had been plugged). Copied data, etc.
So -- knew I needed to ENABLE SATA Port 2 in BIOS -- but when I go there -- those items are 'Greyed out' and not selectable.
KEY QUESTION - Is there some other change that has to be made to enable SATA ports in BIOS? I went in Device Manager -- found the 'controller' entry -- but nothing seemed out of place there.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
Under Integrated Peripherals in the BIOS are the SATA ports greyed out even if there is a device plugged into one of them? I wish your manual would show illustrations of the BIOS pages but they don't.

I am thinking of getting a KVM Switch in particular I/O Gears USB based switch that works with one USB Mouse and Keyboard.
I happen to have a Bluetooth Mouse and Keyboard so I was wondering if I plug the USB Bluetooth receiver stick into the USB 'in' port on the KVM switch if both computers will respond to the Bluetooth unit coming on and off line as I switch between them?
I suppose it may be a bit slow as each computer would have to recognize the Bluetooth receiver and add it to the devices. Is there a solution to this to allow a user to use Bluetooth devices?
My forum search didn't turn up much that was helpful.
good question, i cant answer it but i would love to know...
I want to buy a nice bluetooth headphone so I can listen to music wirelessly from my mobile phone. However, I don't want to spend too much money on this, I can only spend upto 30 bucks. Is there any nice headphone I can buy for 30 bucks?
Here's a good example:
Blue Tooth Headset
My daughter's HP Pavilion Artist's Edition laptop is continually defaulting to a black screen after booting up.
We updated the nvidia driver, but to no avail. She's running Vista Home Premium.
Any ideas how we can cure this? Safe mode doen't seem to help, I also started it without battery in. HP don't really want to know now it's out of warranty, but I see on their site there has been a recall of some similar models for a video card fault.
I don't know what else to try.

I have a hp pavilion dv6000 laptop and I need a new wireless card as my laptop won't connect to wireless networks (except the one in my university ) . I have 2 questions
1) what kind of card do I need to buy to replace what I have
2) can I replace my wireless card by myself?
you shouldn't need a card if you get connectivity to at least 1 network.
You have an encryption issue. You should be able to connect to open networks.
hi i'm haveing an issue with my laptop it won't come on or charge and its not the cord or the battery the power switch works and the hard drive is good and so is the ram any ideas out there i could use the help thanks all
The power jack connector on laptops are soldered (internally) to the motherboard. If the solder connection should break, power can't be delivered (internally) to power the battery or run the computer.
You might try it yourself (see here) if you're comfortable doing so or you'll need to take it to a repair shop
I'm supposed to connect an S/PDIF cable between my soundcard and my graphics card to enable the sound to work on my HDMI cable (between comp and TV).
However, there is no such jack on my soundcard, which is an outdated Soundblaster Audigy Platinum.
For anyone who wants to help, the manual is here.
Can someone help me do something about this? I wish to keep this soundcard.... or at the last resort, buy a new soundcard which will solve this problem, but its gotta be cheap, and has something to connect to the front like my current soundcard, which takes .25" headphone jacks....
I'm not an expert in this area but does your graphics card have an HDMI output connector at the back? If so, you don't need your sound card. HDMI carries both HD video and HD sound. If your TV has an HDMI input, you just connect the HDMI cable from the graphics card.
Hi everyone I recently purchased a HP Pavilion DV EA from ebay UK The seller stated the Laptop was to months old and as HP offer year warranty I assumed or months warranty should remain Shouldn t HP have this on there system As soon as I received the laptop I contacted HP about the warranty and they said it was DV3500 Pavilion HP ending on the next day day after I received the laptop which was the HP Pavilion DV3500 Thursday th November I asked the seller about this and the response I got was that the laptop was a replacement as the first one broke and that therefore the laptop should still have several months left on the warranty HP said without any supporting evidence they can not do anything the seller yesterday email to tell me that they could not find any paperwork confirming this I have the original HP box here which has a delivery label addressed to the seller from the delivery company which has a date on it would this suffice to get the remaining warranty reinstated What else can I do any suggestions nbsp
You need to chat with HP and discuss this with them specifically: http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic100655.html
I would like to upgrade my HP Pavilion 7915 Desktop PC, not a bad little computer and can be upgraded but what is the max CPU I can install in this thing, its currently has a Celeron 1.1 GHz/100 processor. I cannot find this info anywhere on the net. Thanks
couldn't find precise max speed but i dont think you will get more than the base speed 1.1Ghz.
se specs here: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&docname=bph06796
max ram 512M, i think its not got much more to give. Time to get a new PC in my opinion.
This Tool "SiSoft Sandra" will tell you of the upgradability of your processor:

Borrow a good book on Wireless networks... You are missing a few things on how such devices work, and a full understanding will help you a lot from here on out.

The first thing you want to check is all your "Software & Driver Downloads" have been completed and up to date: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?product=3816537&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&cc=us
Do note: A "working" laptop, means Windows is working, and all hardware works. It doesn't necessarily mean every game may work or not

It isn't the wattage that is important as much as it is the quality of the power supply. Get a good one as opposed to a cheap or no-name brand, unless you already have a good one such as Seasonic, OCZ, Corsair, PC Power and Cooling, or one of the other top models.. The video card is fine.
