Every Crash Possible? (HP Pavilion DV7)

Q: Every Crash Possible? (HP Pavilion DV7)

I will admit at the start of this Crash Pavilion Possible? (HP DV7) Every thread I think I have caused these problems by overheating it so much I got this laptop in December but I have Every Crash Possible? (HP Pavilion DV7) been using it on my bed ALOT where it is laying directly on the blanket The first thing I noticed was when I would leave and come back a few hours later sometime it would be at the User login screen like it had crashed and restarted I don't think it slept or hibernated because it would have to load my desktop again and no programs remained open It's weird because my laptop would be idle and didn't ever happen when I was using it for hours pushing it you know Then last week I was on it and it suddenly went to sleep hibernate i will just use sleep cuz I am not sure of the difference So I woke it up again and it slept in another minutes Then later on I had a bunch of youtube tabs open in my browser and the screen went green and said Display driver recovered from error so I thought okay so I went to reload the video and I got a BSoD Every Crash Possible? (HP Pavilion DV7) with error atikmpag sys I disabled the Accelerator in Youtube flash settings and it has not happened again And now I am getting problems where the laptop will goto sleep hibernate and I will have to press power to bring it back randomly OR i won't be able to wake it up and have to hold power to shut it down And then when I have it off or shut down it keeps trying to start up Every Crash Possible? (HP Pavilion DV7) out of nowhere WHEN THE POWER IS OFF I have to unplug the powercord and take out battery sometimes And sometimes it will try to restart out of nowhere and it will get so far into boot and and keep restarting I can't even make it to my desktop I have tryed using both Recommended and Power Saving Plan using just battery plugged in and just cord plugged in I have restored computer back to date when it did not happen No difference I am now keeping it on my desk and plan to get a cooling pad but it's doing all these things still so I fear I have wrecked something permanently Just want some opinion if I have fried something here HP Pavilion dv Notebook PC AMD A - MX APU with Radeon HD Graphics GHz GB installed memory ram bit OS

Preferred Solution: Every Crash Possible? (HP Pavilion DV7)

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.)

A: Every Crash Possible? (HP Pavilion DV7)

This is because in Windows 7 the system may shut off power to USB devices to save power. In order to make sure this doesn’t happen you would need to do the following:
Click the Start Menu and then right click “Computer” and select “Properties”.
In the new window select the “Device Manager” link that is in the upper left hand corner.
In the Device Manager window look down towards the bottom of the window for “Universal Serial Bus Controllers”. Click the arrow to the left of this section.
In the drop down menu look for any instances of “USB Root Hub”. When you find the first one right click on it and select “Properties”.
In the USB Root Hub Properties window look for the tab in the upper right that says “Power Management”.
Click on “Power Management” and uncheck the option that says “Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power”. Then click “OK”.
Continue to do this for every instance of “USB Root Hub” in device manager.
What we have just done is make sure that the computer does not turn off power to the USB ports when it goes into a Power Saving mode. This should allow us to always wake the PC by use of the USB keyboard or mouse

Hello everyone,

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..

Thank you.

Hello everyone,

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.
 

A:Hp Pavilion Dv7 FPS drop during games

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

Hello all,

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?

Regards,
Adrian
 

A:HP Pavilion 15-n252sq - Can not install Windows over Free Dos

You may have to use a program Like KillDisk to reformat the drive. Then try installing your Win 7 DVD.

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

Current specs:
8gb RAM
1gb VRAM (Nvidia Geforce 520)
Intel i7 2600 - Quad core
1.06TB Storage
 

A:HP Pavilion P6-2055a PSU Upgrade

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.

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

A:Should I upgrade HP Pavilion dv6 1100?

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 .

Hi I ve got a XPS M Vista Dell crash up on booting M1530 XPS SP and I have recently experienced some problems This morning the screen would remain black while the laptop made the usual start up sounds and then did nothing The power button remained lit After some googling I had found a solution heating the gpu I found the info in a thread on this forum So I opened up my laptop but I was not able to remove the heat sink a screw that just wouldn t open so I Dell XPS M1530 crash on booting up determined through pictures where the gpu was and heated the area of the heat sink under which the gpu lies with a hair dryer I did this till the area above the gpu was too hot to touch Afterwards I started my laptop up and I didn t have the black screen it just booted up as usual However before I got past the dell screen it crashed I assumed it was overheating but after waiting some time I booted up again and got past the dell screen and had a boot up screen asking me to do a diagnostic and recovery thingie because there might be a software or hardware failure It proceeded to do this but after some time during the test it crashed again After booting it immediately back up it crashed before I got past the Dell screen After waiting a long time I tried again and this time it got further through the diagnostic test but eventually crashed again Now when I try the load bar on the dell screen goes extremely slowly and the laptop crashes before it gets past that stage it crashes slowly if I didn t try to start it before rapidly if I just experienced a crash Sorry for the long post but does anybody have an idea what I can do about this nbsp

Where did you get the advise to do this You should have come here first for some honest advise.

Heat is not a good thing for any electronic device. What you have done may have finished off a processor that was already half baked. I doubt if there is a way to recover from this other than replacing the GPU.

When you quote the GPU are you sure you are not confusing this with CPU. As far as I can see from your sytems manual, on the Dell site, the gahics card has no heat sink so you probably cooked your CPU. The heat sink is there for just one reason, to get rid of heat.

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.

This is my dxdiag Shot

Also in my Msinfo32, When I clicked problem devices, Nothing showed up
 

A:Going crazy. HP Pavilion a6345f PC with no audio

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
Good luck!

Hi

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..?

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.

Thanks!

Hey guys,
I need a cheap laptop that shouldn't be used for much more than MS Office and casual gaming, for games like Dawn of War S1, Dawn of War S2, World of Warcraft and other such games and RTSs, could anyone check it out for me? I've had a look but i'd like more opinions.

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.

A:Upgrading graphic card in HP Pavilion a1522in

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.

A:Old PC crash, cannot enter BIOS

Maybe the RAM isn't really passing the test. If the BIOS is set for quick boot, doesn't it skip the memory test? If so, try using one RAM stick at a time as see if it changes anything. If you have access to any other compatible RAM to test with, that might help. I don't know if that would affect the inability to enter the BIOS but that's all I can think of to try at the moment.

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?
 

A:HP Pavilion dv6911om - unable to install Vista on new hard drive

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.

so what i want to know is do the pavilians suffer with heat problems or any other problems that might cause this .........
 

A:HP Pavilion dv2000

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

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.
 

A:HP Pavilion dv9700 Notebook PC WiFi network not working

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

Hello all,
I'm suffering froma troubling problem with a Windows 7 system.
This system has a boot HDD (C and data storage RAID5 array (D. The system locked up hard requiring a power down to get Windows operational gain.

The sytem is fine now, except the ~3 TB RAID5 array is not seen by W7. The W7 disk managment snap-in reports that the 2793.97 GB "drive" exists, but the status is "Unknown" and "not initialized". Needless to say, the drve was online and contained LOTS of data before the crash. Due to it's size, the drive was GPT.

I ran a synchronize on the RAID 5 array and that finished w/o error, so I assume the actuall array is fine.

Any recommendations for what utllity/diagnostic/etc. to try next?

Further info: The RAID 5 is a creation of the AMD SB750 "southbridge", which uses tech licensed by Promise Technology.

There's no reason to think it's the board.
Did you make a warranty claim on the drive?
Did you install XP on the replacement drive, or just try to use it as is? A repair install may solve the problem, but a clean install would be better.

A:Vista Home Premium, HP Pavilion laptop keyboard not working

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).

Earl Cravens
 

A:Replaced HD and want to install different OS on HP Pavilion dv6000

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.

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?

SYSTEM SPECS:
MB - Asus IPIBL-TX (HP: Burbank-GL8E)
Intel Quad 9400
Intel G33 chipset

If need other specs, let me know. Thanks.

Hello all!

I have bought some new RAM for my Lenovo Computer. It supports up to 2GB of RAM, so i have bought 2GB. It origionally had 1GB.

When i exchange the 2 512mb modules for the 2 1GB modules the computer will boot as normal but then crash/ freeze on the desktop!

The make of the RAM is crucial, and the RAM before was crucial. (it was also recommended by crucial).

I have gone into the BIOS looking for any Memory/RAM settings aswell as voltage settings but can't find anything!

Does anyone have any idea why this could be happening?

Any help would be greatly appreciated

A:Games freeze/crash after 10 mins or less

Sounds like u have some type of clocking issue or temp problem...

First use CPUz, check out all setings,
then use HW monitor, to check CPU temp, and MOBO temps, and voltages.
3.) use GPUz to check out your video card settings...
4.) run a MEM test in dos, to see if u have any falty ram...
5.) check all bios settings... something could be configured wrong.

well, thats all i'v got... hope this helps

Windows 7 Home Preium 64-bit
Intel Core i5 processor 650

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.

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

PC this morning I had dropped a pizza on the right side of the keyboard Now at the time the notebook was on when I went to clean off the grease on the keyboard wasn t too bad but as I was doing HP Pavilion Entertainment PC Help! this action I was also pushing down various keys at the same time I have realized that I should have turned OFF the notebook before proceeding with the cleansing of my keyboard but I happened to be a fool at the time and was rather slow to realize this since it was one in the morning Now the notebook did open various folders documents etc But I had ignored all of the factors on that and continued to clean off the grease and then paid attention to the notebook again I noticed that something was wrong with the notebook and may have outworked the notebook by pressing various keys at the same time When I went to turn off the notebook it averted from shutting down to locking itself down I unlocked the laptop and the sound that is made when you get to your desktop screen was erie and out of tune as if it was gargling in water To make this short and simple I was cleaning the keyboard while the notebook was on various programs and documents were opened notebook began to malfunction or override commands turned off the notebook turned it back on but would not move on to the desktop screen and had an error message stating that something must be re-installed in order to work properly again Basically when I was cleaning the notebook I must have accidentally deleted a vital system component that operates the system properly I tried doing a system recovery with a disc that had all the default programs etc but failed to complete the recovery This morning I turned on the notebook and after the Windows XP F Boot Order F Set-up screen the screen will go into a black screen and restart itself over and over again I do not know if my notebook is completely FUBAR but I am hoping that someone has a solution to this problem I do not have a warranty on this notebook as a friend gave the notebook to me in June Can anyone help nbsp

I have been trying to fix this problem for some time now. The problem appears to stem from video-related issues... One day, I started up my laptop - the windows startup screen, on my monitor it was showing 6 (or was it 8) windows startup screens, then it went to the login screen which was also showing muliple screens. Windows did prompt that the NVIDEA driver nvdnkkka something or other(not sure about this one) had stopped and had recovered. The next time I started up my laptop the same problem occurred. This problem seems to result in some type of system crash as well...Anyone out there have any suggestions? I'm all out of steam on this one. I have already downloaded the driver update for this video adapter, but still to no avail. -Mike

This should have been posted in the Mobile Computing forum. A laptop is a mobile computer... You don't say what version of Windows you are running. If XP, you might try doing an XP repair

I have purchased an HP pavilion dv6820ea off Amazon marketplace without a power adapter. I was informed it was easy to find and eventually bought this charger off ebay. However it prooved not to fit and I was wondering if anyone can tell me the specs of the charger I need? All I can find specifically on the data sheet is that it needs to be 90w.

Even better if someone could link to a right charger I'd be appreciative.
I'm in the uk but an link showing the correct spec would be nice!
Thanks in advance,

George
 

A:Charger for HP Pavilion dv6820ea

I've got a bit more info...
I'm fairly sure I need a 19v, 4.74a charger and a 4mm external diameter connection is a bit (but not massively) too big.
Any suggestions...

upgrade wi-fi pavilion ze5000
i want to replace stock card with wireless n card in my laptop
how to
thanks
 

A:Upgrade Wi-Fi Pavilion ze5000

What is the stock card? How old is this HP Pavilion? I don't see any references to a stock card on the HP site, or a wireless socket.
Looks as if you will have to install a PCMCIA wireless card. Easy enough, and low in cost.

Okay so yesterday I went to a friend s house to help him build his computer I let him wire it and didn t notice that he wired the audio incorrectly We started up the computer everything was fine - OS was running smoothly temperatures were low no funny noises all seemed good When he plugged in his microphone the entire computer crashed We opened up the case and I saw that he had plugged the audio in the wrong place on the motherboard When we attempted to turn the computer back on it kind of did go on all LED s on fans on HDD light on etc etc But the monitor displayed something along the lines of quot No signal quot We double checked to see if the graphics card was seated correctly if it was getting power if the wires to the graphics card in microphone after plugging Crash were connected properly and they were so no problem there So Is there any way to fix this We are going to try clearing CMOS first One more question On page of the online manual Google quot DX SO Manual quot it gives information about the BIOS configuration jumper Do we set it to - or none in order to fix this Here are specs if it helps Intel Core i GB RAM EVGA GTX SSC Core Intel DX SO Motherboard Seagate GB HDD RPM nbsp

A:Crash after plugging in microphone

I would put it on 2-3 first and see what options that menu has, one may be to restore bios defaults, which is what you'd want to choose. If that isn't an option, then I'd do the <none> to apparently 'recover' the bios.

Worst case senario is you shorted something that shouldn't have been when it was running and toasted that part of the mobo... Which pins was it connected to?

Hi
was the screen replaced with the correct make and model...?

Did you change the inverter over from the old board or did it come with one, (inverter: a small board usually across the bottom of the screen)

when you fitted the board did you make sure you seated all the conenctions properly..

A:HP Pavilion Notebook Not Booting

Nice machine and configuration.
I would first try removing two memory modules, and attempting a boot with the third.. then if that doesn't work, change modules until you have tried all three.
It is difficult to trouble-shoot a machine like that... but we are seeing a LOT of ealy failures in the large laptops hard drives from 250 GB to 500 GB, so suspect that your hard drive might be bad. A good test would be to try any other known good hard drive from 80 GB on up to 500 GB... can you borrow one, then try to format and install it.
If still dead when you change memory and hard drive, it is time to get it back to HP for warranty work.
Anything you do that is not memory and not a hard drive will void your warranty.

I have about 46% unused on the disk.
When I switch from aol to internet explorer it takes so much time.
In fact, even when I go to "my documents", task manager, and every
other application it moves so slow I can get up and wash dishes or
something. Also when I switch applications it takes time for the screen
to load..........the screen moves slowly from the top of the screen to
the bottom. I have had a few alerts, saying I am low on vitural memory.
Question: Are there things I can do to spead this tank up?
Thanks for your time,
Sincerely,

A:Why does my HP Pavilion 8290 Run So Slow ?

How much ram does your computer have? There is a chance it may be faulting, but let's check out other areas first. Do you run security software? How big is your pagefile? Do you defrag you harddrive often? (once / week recommended). Try these links...
http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic58138.html
http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic62524.html
Also, one more thing, what operating system does it have? Do you have the o/s CD to reload the o/s and start fresh?

Even though the motherboards appear to be identical, they perhaps are not.

A:Strange crash issue involving video distortion

Sounds like video card or memory... But it could be a cpu fan, incorrect thermal paste, bad cable..
Everything needs to be tested in a systematic fashion... But it has to be a hardware iisue...
I would run MemTest 86 one more time, on one module at a time... for four hours or 7 passes, which ever is longer... and no going to bed while it runs.

I recently tried to upgrade my RAM from 1 gig to 2 gig purchased from Edge Tech. When I installed it and tried to reboot, the picture on the monitor was fuzzy and wavy---it stuck in the boot phase...starting over several times but never fully booting. I tried switching slots and got the computer to come on but it locked up soon after. When I removed the new RAM and reinstalled the old RAM it worked fine...any advice?

A:Frequent Crash / No errors

Put your memory back in and run Memtest86 from a boot floppy or cd if you don't have a floppy. Let it run for several hours on both sticks unless its obvious theres something wrong. If you get errors you might be able to RMA the ram, Corsair is really good about it, just copy down the error codes and go to there web site and make an RMA request. Sometimes bad ram gets out into the world and they know its coming back to them, so there really good about it. I once had two bad 512mb sticks or DDR they didn't even make anymore, so they sent me two 1gig sticks to replace them. Cool huh?

Oh, I forgot, you might want to go into the bios and set safe defaults and see what happens.
