HP dv4000 not responding correctly

Q: HP dv4000 not responding correctly

Hello, my HP laptop stops responding, while playing a game or just general browsing, it would freeze. This has been going on since I got it from a friend. Its about as irritating as the COM surrogate error. I've tried many times trying to find the problem. One day while looking at mail, it froze again, so I got a little annoyed and tapped it, and it decided to respond. Now everytime it freezes I have to hit it like a 30 year old tube tv to get it to respond. I would like to know if there is a permanent fix for this masochist laptop.

-thank you for putting up with my bichin-

Preferred Solution: HP dv4000 not responding correctly

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

Hello again Seveners I come to you with yet MORE computer problems Hopefully you brainboxes can find out what's up this Built correctly Dell responding in Inspiron trackpad not - time too Okay - so my friend has asked me to try and fix his Dell Inspiron N I Built in trackpad not responding correctly - Dell Inspiron have tried but to no avail and Built in trackpad not responding correctly - Dell Inspiron am seeking -support The built in trackpad is playing silly buggers When the computer has logged in and Windows in finalising the loading of programs left clicking with the mouse causes the right click menu to open This is rather annoying After about minutes the problem goes away and is fine for about minutes It then keeps trying to right click everything makes me unable to click on the Start button or any other Taskbar items for that matter The only way to make it work again is by pressing Ctrl Alt Delete and then pressing escape It will then happily allow me to left click again - as if by magic The same thing happens if I try and use an external USB mouse although it is a lot more reliable than the built in trackpad I do have a technical brain so I have thought and tried the following Hopefully you can see something I overlooked - Checked that the trackpad wasn't disabled - but no - the trackpad still allows me to move just clicking with the buttons wont work I will also add that it stops be being able to click using the touchpad rather than the buttons too - Uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers - Same problem - Tried to update the drivers - Marked as up to date - Checked the mouse settings to ensure that the buttons are not marked as swapped - They're not - Restarted the PC - many many many times - Checked no settings were changed on the BIOS - there isn't anything to do with the mouse on the BIOS - Done sfc scannow to see if there were any issues with the OS - there was not - Checked for Windows Updates - Everything including optional updates is updated - Checked the properties of the mouse to see if there's an error code - there's none I am not thinking hardware problem as I can easily solve it by CTRL ALT DEL'ing I am really stuck Help Cheers

A:Built in trackpad not responding correctly - Dell Inspiron

If I had to make totally wild guess, I would speculate there is another program running that takes control of the pad. I would boot in a safe mode to see if that helps, if not I would try to look at all services running and disable some. Usually there is brief description to give you an idea if it's safe to disable. I don't see virus scan in your list, I would start with that.

I have been have problems with my DV4000 charging, it would charge only if I connected a external monitor to it, it was using that circuit as it earth source, you only had to connect it with no power.
It turned out to be the AC adpter socket, there is a tiny micro switch inside the socket which is opened when the adpter is plugged in, in my case the switch was damaged and wasn't switching as it is surposed to.
The laptop was taken apart and the socket unsoldered and replaced with a new one, approx £15.
hope this is useful to you all, thanks also to Colin from : a really helpful genuine Guy.

A:Charging HP Pavilion DV4000

This is a very common problem with laptops in general. People first suspect and replace the AC adapter, then find out that the DC jack (in the US) is bad. Some of the DC jacks are on a separate cable, and some DC jacks are soldered onto the motherboards. I have a Toshiba Satellite with a soldered DC jack. This jack cost $42. The laptop has to be completely disassembled

I have a HP Pavilion DV4000 that is not powering on. The A/C connection seems to be loose and not fitting in tightly like it usually does. I also do not see the blue light where the connection goes into the computer. Would this be caused by the charging port not connecting with the Power supply on the motherboard. Could the motherboard have failed? What should I do to find out what the issue is and how to go about fixing this problem. Thanks for any suggestions.

A:Hp Pavilion Dv4000 Charging/vga

It appears after that connecting the monitor via the VGA socket is providing an Earth enabling charging to operate, the AC adapter socket has been tested OK.
It has been suggested that a chip on the VGA circuit board may have failed causing the previous strange behavior.

Here is the Service Manual: Manual It uses DDR333 aka PC2700 SO-DIMM maximum 2 gigs.  This memory should work for you: For the replacement procedure, see page 5-15. The hard drive is shown at Page 5-7.  The hard drive type is EIDE aka PATA. This is "legacy" (obsolete) hardware and larger sized PATA drives are getting hard to find. There is no size constraint imposed by the BIOS or hardware, but the market may not supply you with anything bigger than about 320 gigs and it is going to be expensive to find a new one. The biggest I ever saw was a 500 gig but I have not seen one of those in years. You want to try to find a 5400 rpm or 7200 rpm model although 7200s are extermely hard to locate. 4200 rpm models are just too slow to use.  Here is a 320 gig on eBay for about $100:  If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

My friend bought a used laptop last year that has been running very slow. She asked me to fix it and I found out she's running Windows 7 on an old HP pavilion dv4250us with only 512 MB of ram. Obviously it needs more memory to run Windows 7 smoothly. I'm not sure if it's worth trying to find memory for this old laptop or going back to Windows XP. She can't afford anything too expensive (otherwise she'd just get a new laptop).

I found this:
which looks pretty reasonable. I'm guessing 2 1 GB sticks will do the trick.

I'm not really sure how to change the memory in this laptop, but I managed to snap a picture of the memory after I opened it up and was hoping one of you guys can give me some tips and let me know if it's worth the effort.

Hope you can help! I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate SP1, 4GB, 64bit, Intel i5, NVIDIA, Kaspersky Internet Security 15.0.2.
I primarily use IE11, but switch to Mozilla Firefox 43.0.2 when IE stops responding. My primary email is AOL which I access via web, not software. Computer often slow and hangs.
The main issue is IE11 "stops responding" several times a day. I've run the latest version of Malwarebytes (subscription), Glary Utilities Pro, Kaspersky IS, CCleaner, and Disk Cleanup. I delete browing history daily. No virus or malware shows up after scans. Recently ran a full scan on Kaspersky overnight+ and still, no viruses detected. I'm not sure what the issue is and would gladly go back to IE9 or 10 if IE11 is the issue, but I need to be sure.
Whatever guidance you can offer would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Hey all,

I have two problems with two employees. They both are connecting by vpn with the ATT Global network client from their homes. These Both employees are using outlook 2000. They are both behind personal routers. They can both browse the Internet and intranet web pages with no problems.

One of the employees can connect with no problem but after ten minutes only her outlook stops responding.

The other, her exchange server will no respond. She is able to ping it successfully. Created several new profiles have no effect or even simply trying a check name.

Any help on these two problems?

A:Outlook problems: exchange server not responding and not responding after 10 minutes

1) Are they on company or personal machines? If personal could this be a personal firewall issue?

2) Are they connecting wirelessly? Have they try connecting wired and see if it makes a difference.

3) I haven't used Outlook 2K in a long time, but I remember there being a setting about how to behave when using a slow connection. Something like tools, send receive, send receive settings. I think one of the options was to basically do nothing. You might poke around in those settings and see what you find.

cuz im not sure how im supposed to save the analyzer and log in the same folder, cuz when i click the 'y' button when the black screen pops up it says error and that the log file cannot be found....***?

A:how do i do an HJT log correctly?

Hello kgmoney21 and Welcome to TSF.

PLEASE do not create multiple threads! Keep all of your posts to one thread. An analyst will get to your log as soon as possible. Also, please curb your language. Thank You.

As for the analyzer not working, if it can't find the log then you probably don't have it in the same place as Hijack This. Follow these instructions and see if it will work. It it does, then you may post the result.txt file in the SAME THREAD as you posted your original Hijack This log.

Once you have saved a log file (after doing a scan in Hijack This), download and run KRC HijackThis Analyzer in the same folder to get the result.txt log.

So i've got 8 gb of DDR2 1066 pc8500, and my pc only shows 6 gb. And im not sure about what frequencies and so on, I should set?

My specs:

AMD Phenom X3 8750 Black Edition
ASUS m2n68 Socket AM2+ (940)
Radeon 5850 Sapphire 1gb ddr5
4x DDR2 pc8500 1066

Thanks in advance

A:is my ram set up correctly?

The two Mushkin sticks are 1GB sticks, several sites confirm this such as this one:
So the 6GB total is correct. The memory may have been sold as a 2GB kit, meaning each stick is 1GB.

You're also running the memory at 333Mhz, or 667Mhz effective rather than the 533Mhz/1066Mhz its capable of. But according to the Asus specs you can only run 1066Mhz with two sticks in dual channel mode, thats due to the AM2 processor design. You might be able to achieve 400/800Mhz using all four sticks if you change the memory settings in the BIOS, but that would be a small gains anyway.

A:am i doing it correctly?

Set the textbox's MultiLine Property to true.

I won't do your homework for you, but I will offer a little constructive criticism.

How about assigning the spell check result to a variable.

Then using Select Case to assign the Grade to the label. It will save you a lot of typing.
look at this:
ElseIf Mcheck.SpellEssay(txtText.Text) < 3 And Mcheck.SpellEssay(txtText.Text) > 10 Then
Click to expand...

How can a number be less than 3 and greater than 10 at the same time?

Now have a look at this:


Dim P as Integer


Label1.Caption "" 

If  And Val(Text1.Text) < 10 Then  

.Caption " Not Bad"

ElseIf Val(Text1.Text) < 20 Then

.Caption "Oops" 

End If

Type 10 into the textbox and press the command button. See what the caption reads.

You have already concluded that the number is greater 9 in the previous line or the result would already be in the Label and the conditional statement would have ceased.

Now let's try Select Case:


Dim P As Integer


Select Case P

Case Is <= 3

And then of course, it doesn't find any problems.

I am running Windows XP Professional, and after installing new RAM recently I encountered a problem. I found out it was because I had the wrong memory module for my motherboard. Now I have the correct memory module installed, but XP won't boot. I get through the BIOS screen, and then I get a screen that asks if I want to load the OS in Safe Mode, Last Known Good Settings, or Load Windows Normally. None of the options work - any one I choose gives me a blank screen with a white bar on the bottom, or sometimes just a blank screen. I disconnected all peripherals and left just the monitor and keyboard attached. I've heard that I can try to reboot the OS from a CD, but I don't want to do that unless I have to. I also don't want to mess with the BIOS too much as that seems to be OK. What should I do next?

A:XP won't boot correctly

do a repair
set the comp. to boot from cd first in the bios
pop in the xp cd and reboot
choose install
ignore the first repair option and continue with install
when windows finds the previous installation
then choose repair
you will have to reload sp1 and any ms updates and probably your video drivers

I would download Belarc Advisor and save the report along with your files. It will report the details of hardware and software ( with product keys ) for use after you reinstall.

If you have the Dell System restore ( not all Dells do ) you can use that and you will not need a install CD

If not, You can get a reinstallation guide specific to your Dell here

You can request a replacement instalation cd [URL=""] here[

  My company recently started using Office 365 for e-mail provider. Unfortunately the IT person spelled my display name wrong. When I brought it to his attention, I was told "no big deal, you can just go into your account and edit your display name yourself". Not only is he an idiot, but he is also ill-informed. After going thru the maze, which is Office 365 help instructions, I surmised that everything except display name and job title can be edited.

Hello everyone,

My problem is twofold-
1. often my CPU usage is around 100%, but the processes running CPU usage does not add up to 100%. Its often around 20% off.
2. My laptop seems to frequently go to 100% usage from just browsing.

I am a intermediate on computers, laptop specs posted below. I have defragmented, ran registry cleaners, searched for viruses/malware/spyware, performed windows and driver updates. Its less than a year old. I sincerely appreciate your help!

Hi blast00,

In addition to the troubleshooting steps you have done, also empty out the temp files folder. I would NOT run a registry cleaner because the program can delete registry keys that relates to a program(s) and then all of a sudden, some of your programs will not run right anymore.

Also, perform a "Check Disk Repair" on the computer and see if that helps. Hope everything works out for you.

I have Windows 7 Premium, Internet Explorer 11.
I had to download Google chrome through Google earth to be able to join forum. When I click on i.e. icon a blank internet explorer screen comes up with no information showing. If I click on favorites, and select a site nothing happens. When I select tools only options available are compatibility, file and safety. I am unable to successfully restore to any point. I have done a WebRoot virus scan showing no problems. I tried msconfig disabling all save MS to no effect. Is there anything I can do short of re-installing Windows.
Thank you.

A:IE 11 not opening correctly

I believe this is because IE 11 was really designed for windows 8 and its tiled layout; which is probably the reason it wont open correctly. To fix this you may have to use the windows 7 disc if you have one available; and use that to do a system repair by starting windows via the disc.

When I download Can't correctly. try to download something through either Firefox or IE it doesn t download correctly This happens for all files and of all types From what I observed the two files that are usually made when downloading files are made part and regular file The problem seems to be is that the part file gets all the information It increases in size as the download progress while the regular file doesn t it stays at kb Then when the download is Can't download correctly. finish they either are both deleted usually the part file is only deleted or I am left with the part file which is basically useless From what I gathered online when a browser downloads something it creates the regular file and the part file The part file is used when you pause a download so you don t have to start from the beginning and the regular file is the file you keep after the download is finished Both are suppose to get information and the part file is suppose to be deleted afterward Obviously my computer isn t doing it right This problem use to happen occasionally and I would just redownload the file and it wouldn t happen again Now it happens every time I try to download something So could anybody help me find the cause of this problem and or a solution I have Windows Vista Home Premium btw Thanks nbsp

Hi first thing to check - is the Ram [memory]
Turn the computer off and disconnect it from the power
Take off the side of the case and touch the bare metal chassis to discharge static.
Remove Ram from their slots

Plug in the RAM [one stick at a time].
Also try different slots.
Ensure it is seated correctly.

While you are doing that..
Reseat Video card.
Check Hard drive and Motherboard connections [IDE]
Take them off and reseat them.

After that ....
*the MINI gets our wireless internet while the PAVILLION does not.
*The sound for both HP's does not work.
*When i try to uninstall programs some delete and others dont.
Ive heard you can completely delete everything of the laptops as if they were brand new.
But i dont know how.
please help????
My mother first bought the PAVILLION but then it completely shut off and will not work properly.
Then she bought the MINI couple of months later and it only works correctly on Networking mode.

Hello all,

There are a few computers I have that have been having problems with the DVD / CD Rom. When I turn the computer on I can put a audio CD in and play it. Once I hit the exit button on Windows Media Player to exit out of it, the DVD / CD Rom will not work anymore until i reboot the computer. Then it will start working perfectly. I have replaced the DVD / CD Rom with a brand new one and it is still doing the same thing. I checked all cables and the cables are all fine.

So I just built a new pc and I was installing Windows 7, but I did not realize that my product key was only for upgrading, therefore the product key kept failing. So I took my Windows XP disc and tried to install that but my pc would not boot from the CD-rom, it just kept going to the Windows 7 setup. So after trying to boot from the cd-rom without success, I just tried going through the Windows 7 setup menu to see if I could do anything. When it came to entering the product key, I just hit enter and it went past that. Now I'm at the Windows 7 desktop but I'm not sure if it was done correctly. I didn't want to connect online and risk having my key invalidated. Not too sure what to do now. BTW, I'm on a laptop right now.

Now i'll just start off to say i'm not too experienced with burning and what "DVD-RAM" is but everytime i burn something on to a CD-RW disk, it will register on my laptop but not anything else except for the DVD Player (Which is WMA compatible).

Could it have anything to do with DVD compatible devices or any settings i made like Multi-Session's disk or what? And also something worth noting is that i'm using Nero to burn.

A:DVD Ram not burning correctly

If the disc hasn't been finalised then other devices will have problems. What devices by the way?
Also device compatibility with CDRW (re-writable) discs is far less than with CDR discs. If you want to play the disc away from the computer then you'll have far better results over all with CDR discs.
DVD RAM is a type of DVD disc. It isn't relevant to this particular problem from what you've said so far but with DVD's it gets worse. There are about 7 different kinds of them and that's not including the 8cm variety. They're not as complicated as it sounds though, just, ish . . .. . well maybe a bit. They're all round at least.
If you want help with Nero give us a shout as it's the one I use.

Hi All,
I need to buy a new hard disk today and install Xp. Been a while since I've done that but I remember last time it asked me what sort of file system I wanted - FAT 32 etc etc - not really sure about that, any advice please? Also - do I need to format the disk first or will that get done as part of the install procedure??
Should I fully install all my cards - (network, firewire etc) before the install?
Thanks for any advice or links you may have.

A:Installing Xp Correctly

First thing you're going to want to do is get windows installed, I always choose fat32 mainly because that's the way my disk is.

If this is a brand new hard disk, it will already be clean of everything and all you have to do is install windows on it, You can format it through the installation program but its not needed

If you can before you install, burn as many programs drivers etc onto a disk to ensure that you can have everything without having to connect to the internet, that's if you can

upon installing windows you're going ot want to activate the firewall, and avoid doing any internet activity until windows is fully upgraded and all your drivers from your motherboard, cd drives or whatever you have is installed

once everything is updated and installed then you can proceed to use the internet again, and use it wisely to get whatever you need.. AVG, A firewall, Etc..

I wouldn't recommned you check e-mail or anything utnil you have an AV going, a spyware/malware program going, a firewall up, Etc... only then I would do things like that

My new GTX 770 crashes when I'm starting a game. I think that the GTX 770 isn't receiving enough power as it should.

I got a new CX750M, there are two PCI-E slots in the power supply, I used only one slot (6+2pin & 6+2pin) to connect the GPU. Is this correct?

My GTX 770 came with a Dual 6-Pin PCI Express to 8-Pin PCI Express Power Adapter. Do I have to use this power cable to connect to the second slot in the power supply? I have tried this already but the GTX 770 crashes when starting a game.

Im thinking the GTX 770 isn't getting enough power? The CX750M has 62amps on the rail

A:How to correctly connect the GPU via PSU?

Power must be supplied to both connectors on the GTX 770. As long as you connect the 6+2pin & 6+2pin connectors from the CM750M to the GTX 770 you should be good.
