HP - Compaq Pavilion dv6700t Series Laptop/Notebook what i need for better gaming?

Q: HP - Compaq Pavilion dv6700t Series Laptop/Notebook what i need for better gaming?

Okay so I'm not technologically savvy but I'm guessing to make most of the games that I download to actually run, I need a better graphics card?

Whenever I play games with decent to good graphics, my system just won't function right. They lag until my computer freezes and stuff. So I just wanna know what I can do to actually play games.

I'm not sure what other info I would need to show you guys
I'm willing to spend around 150 or less dollars on stuff I would need to make this computer run better for games

oh my power supply:
Its a replacement AC adapter
Input: AC100-240V 1.2A 50/60Hz

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.)

hope someone can help out here. I have rediscovered an old laptop I had laying around and thought to be great to have it set up for my 6 year old son. Now all ok etc just one last thing I just can't get sorted. Tis the sound. So now below is the link for the sound driver but for the life of me I don't have a 1.44" floppy drive to download this to.

HP Pavilion 15-ab100 Notebook PC series (Touch)
Model # is 15-ab144cy  Serial # is (removed content) and Product ID is 9NE06UA

Notebook was purchased in February 2016 via QVC channel on cable.  (Home Shopping Channel) in US.

A few days ago, the notebook failed to power up.  Not a Windows problem.  It does not get that far. 
It would appear this is failing the "power on" test, as there is a series of 3 long beeps, but there is never any video displayed of any kind.  Obviously using the HP Support Assistant is not a viable option.
Can you advise where to connect with HP Support or how to address this issue since the notebook is only a few months old???

Hello,I will be replacing my hard drive on my HP Pavilion Laptop, and after looking at the HP support site, I have some questions. The p/n is: KT260AV1) Once I install the new hard drive, I want to do a fresh install of Windows 7 x64. Will all I have to do is boot the computer with windows 7 x64 iso on USB drive inserted, or will I need to update the BIOS, and/or make some other software/firmware change?2) Once I have Windows 7 x64 installed on the new drive without issue(s), could/should I attempt to upgrade to Windows 10?I thank you in advance for your help,Mike

I want to upgrade the battery to a bigger capacity battery. Also, does anybody here know if there is a compatible dock for the geming notebook? I am always plugging my laptop when playing games. And as far as I know, plugging the laptop consistently for a long time will damage the battery. Thank you!J

Hi, There are few things I would like to say: 1. The machine does not have VGA port. It has ? 2 SuperSpeed USB 3.0? 1 Universal Serial Bus (USB) 2.0? 1 HDMI? 1 RJ-45 (LAN)? 1 Headphone-out/microphone-in combo jack That HDMI port is for you to connect to an external BIGger monitor for you to enjoy games if you wish. 2. Not true, I connect to external monitors nearly all my laptops . Playing games on a laptop can always cause "overheating", no matter what. Regards.

When I insert a PC Card in my Compaq Presario 1200-series laptop computer, I receive a message that indicates MTD-0002 hardware is detected. Also, an unknown device named "PCMCIA MTD-0002" appears in my Device Manager.

This is my problem, exactly from the Q274509 in the Microsoft Knowledge base. When i attempt to do what it suggests to fix, (To resolve this issue, disable the Sound Blaster setting in the Phoenix BIOS, but do not disable Onboard PCI Audio in the Phoenix BIOS. ), I find that neither the Sound Blaster Setting nor the Onboard PCI Audio setting exist in my BIOS.

What am I to do? I cannot connect to the internet with my laptop anymore because my modem doesn't work with the laptop!!! Please help me either find this setting (if i just didnt look hard enough) or find a way around this. Either and/or Both would be much appreciated.

Not sure which exact model you have. It would help to know the specs, but generally g6 models have unimpressive video power. Not every computer can play serious games; not every car is a race car. Nobody wants to spend money on a better computer or a faster car but you get what you pay for.

HP Pavilion dv6853cl Notebook PC I'm considering buying a refurbished one of these, which, groan, comes with Windows Vista. I can't seem to find out when this laptop first came out. I figure if it came out before Vista, then it probably originally released with Windows XP, so I would not have compatibility issues if I put Windows XP on it instead.
Does anyone know when this laptop first released? Or, does anyone have any more useful input for me? Thanks, any help is greatly appreciated.

A:keyboard keys not working on HP Pavilion g6 notebook laptop

What system update, windows update, a driver update? This is pretty vague.Could the update be coincidence and the keys are broken? If you boot to safe mode with command prompt try them then.Maybe the keys themselves are damages in which case you need a new or new old stock keyboard.That's what I would do, test the keys in a command prompt window and if they don't work there get a new keyboard.Do you have access to a usb keyboard to see if it's the keys or some weird OS thing?

Purchased "HP Pavilion Laptop-gaming 17t touch" and have now found two specs that are NOT as listed on the HP store website, without even powering it on yet: Display '17.3" diagonal FHD IPS UWVA anti-glare WLED-backlit (1920 x 1080) Touchscreen' is NOT anti-glare--it is highly reflective, so much so that it is unusable in our office environment--it is basically a mirror. Weight is listed as 6.06 lb -- however, I just weighed it, and it is 7.29 lb!  That's 1 1/4 pounds or 20% heavier than it is supposed to be.  That is a significant difference! Has anyone else purchased this laptop and found this to be the case?  Very false advertising. Makes me wonder how realistic the supposed "Up to 9 hours and 30 minutes" of battery life is compared to other similar models.

I would like to upgrade the CPU on an older model Compaq Presario 5000/K series desktop. Currently installed is a 900Mhz Duron. I'm not sure what the model MB is, but presume it to be a micro ATX of some description. Would it be possible to "pop" in an Athlon XP 2.0 and if that is possible would the BIOS need upgrading as well?

A:Compaq 5000 series CPU compatability

Can you be a little more specific on the Compaq part number or provide a number like 5002US? A 900MHz Duron, but what about the motherboard bus speed? I saw a listing for the 5002US model with only a 200MHz bus speed... This could be your limiting factor in deciding what CPU would work for you

It's been a long time since last time I was here, but this time I need help with a, probably very silly, question.

I've got a Compaq Docking Station for Armada E and M Series (The black one).
It's this one:
Docking Station EM Series
The first one.

My problem is this:
I need to get inside the docking station to be able to add a 5,25" unit, but I can't find out how to open the ****.

I believe that Compaq has once again succeeded with finding out a truly non logical way to seal boxes..
Does anyone out there know how to open it?

I've been struggling with this for 2 weeks now and I'm ready to give up.

What I've tried so far is just to open it by force, but it seems to be risky and may damage it.

May be a faulty HardDrive partition

Here is Delpart
I've used it many times for stubborn partitions removal
Here's some info on it:

May be faulty Ram

Here is Memtest ISO, to create a bootable Memtest CD.
Run memtest at least 7 times for a thorough test.

May be CPU

A faulty internal processor, can cause this error.
As many users tend to overclock CPU's (and Ram) Your first choice would be to load Bios defaults (or Optimized Defaults) in CMOS. But a hardware fault on your CPU means it will need to be replaced (this can be a little hard to explain presently.

Can be devices attached to your computer

Mainly USB and modem devices can cause issues with installing Windows
Either unplug them (actually any not needed device) or disable them in CMOS

It's a bit grey at this point. Without more info on error messages or anything else
ie can be HardDrive or even the CD you're using !
Just try the above first

Dead battery comes to mind (the little silver round one).
If the mobos are all the same, set the switches identical to one that works.

A:upgrading the HP pavilion slimline 400-224 Series

@MSspark, welcome to the forum. HP has their motherboards made to their specifications.  Therefore, they are not the same as retail boards.  This presents a possible problem with upgrading to a different board.  The main problem is find a board that has the holes that match the stand-offs in the case. Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

I was just out of the country and after my lap top battery was dead I tried to charge with the European adapter which did not work. After I was able to connect to a regular outlet it charges but the screen stays black and it appears to be stuck in sleep mode.  I have read many forums and tried all sorts of things but nothing seems to get it out of sleep mode. Any advise would be appreciated.

Okay so on some sites and programs when I have to use my webcam, everything goes smooth and works...until about 5 or so minutes in and my webcam turns off automatically and quits working. Skype, Omegle and Chatroulette are the sites I use that include the usage of my webcam. I am not sure if I need to update my drivers or something like that, I have looked around online to see what I can do, and have not found much help, so I figured I would come here and see if anyone can help me on this issue and future ones if anything else arises, thanks much!!
And hopefully I am posting this in the right area, if not please direct it there, thanks again!

I have a an Acer Aspire 5102WLMi notebook that the screen just went completely white on and then upon restarting it nothing was displayed, but the computer at least seems to turn on. I've tried plugging it into an LCD monitor but there still isn't anything displayed. I should note the laptop isn't mine. This is how I received it and what I was told. Is it possible for the on-board video to go bad? Or any ideas of things I could try to pin-point the problem?


A:Acer Aspire 5100 Series Notebook --No Display

If you have tried an external monitor (which you said you have) and nothing displayed on boot whilst plugged into the external monitor, I would say that the built-in video is bad. I would advise your friend/client/relative to purchase a new laptop or see if you can find a cheap, used mobo on Ebay to replace it because the video cannot easily be replaced (soldered onto motherboard).

Hi, so i wanted to make a new partition, only to find that HP had already used them all up, so i tried to follow your guy's make a logical partition guide, however when booting into the partition manager, it said that it doesn't support windows server

how do i fix this? (all specs should be listed in the specs thing)

A:HP 2000 series notebook can't make logical partition

Welcome to the forum.

Please post a screen shot of Disk Management in your computer.

Also, just noticed that you list Malwarebytes as your antivirus program. Malwarebytes is not an antivirus program. You should reallyinstall one.

Asus A555LA A Series XX2064D 90NB0652-M32310
Core i3 (5th Gen) - (4 GB DDR3/1 TB HDD/Free DOS) Notebook

order placed. product will be received shortly.

the asus website is listing only windows 10 64 bit and windows 8.1 64 bit, for driver downloads.

so can windows 7 be installed in this notebook?

if it can be installed, where should i get the drivers from?

i believe the laptop comes with a driver cd. but i think those drivers are for windows 8.1.

sorry if something is wrong or incorrect. this is my first post here.

A:can windows 7 be installed on asus A series notebook A555LA?

Most likely not because of missing drivers. The required drivers are probably not available - from anywhere.

I've now tried another Sony Memory stick in the my laptop, and it has exactly the same fault, so looking more and more likely like it is something related to my machine rather than a dodgy card.

A:New Hp Pavilion V Series Pc And Sleep Mode Problem

Please post the BSOD information as it will help us to isolate the problem.Where did you get the video drivers from? I generally avoid Windows Update and HP for video drivers - preferring to get them from (in this case) Have you tried to roll the drivers back? Have you tried removing the old drivers completely, rebooting, and then installing the newly downloaded nVidia drivers?Is this 32 bit or 64 bit Vista? 32 bit Vista doesn't recognize all 4 gB of RAM (I've got it on 2 systems at home). Although I haven't noticed any significant problems with it, I'm starting to wonder if there's any drawbacks to using too much RAM on these systems.

The shift keys on my sister's laptop are refusing to work, both on the left and right side so she has no access to punctuation or any of the symbols.

Does anyone know of any quick fixes or shall I force her to take it back to pc world and make them fix it, excuse the lack of a question mark.

The laptop is about 6 months old, so it should still be working.

Any input would be much appreciated, and pretend there are exclamation marks there.
