It seems that you have problems with your video card, that's a common problem with many HPs. Better go to a service center to fix it. And, the laptops aren't for gaming, if you want to play, buy a desktop.

Quickplay on laptop plays everything slow motion and no sound, no sound for games most of time.


Are you running xp or Vista?

In XP go to device manager and expand list of IDE ATA ATAPI controllers. Right click on primary IDE controller and select properties. In advanced screen check primary IDE mode - that should be DMA.
IF that is in PIO mode - that is your problem.
Just click on driver tab in the same window and click uninstall.
REstart computer twice and problem should be solved.
Please leave your feedback if issue is solved

my xbox 360 stopped loading


Heat needs to be removed from your xbox for it to function properly. If you are starting to see random lockups and odd artifacts in graphics it may be time to clean out your console. Keep in mind that in game lockups can also be caused by DVD issues but if can stick your xbox in a cold place and notice that this gives you stable play time then clean it of all dust. I am talking about taking it apart and giving it a good cleaning. If this does not help try a aftermarket fan.

DVD Drive failure most common problem, this ranges from dirty disk error (DDE) message to inoperable drive door, skipping in movies, slow load time or no load or the call customer service errors 10, 11, and 12. To replace the drive it will have to be reflashed.
