Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook

1 Answer

(Microsoft ?)Narrator on new HP Paviolion dv9910 laptop(model# on comp.)

New computer's not broken. Needs no repair. When option of having computer talk to me appeared, I turned it on, just out of curiosity. I DO NOT want to hear it talking to me anymore. However, I have searched all over computer---control panel, my computer, even "help" sites, & none of them tell how to turn it off. All I have been able to do is turn the volume of Narrator down. I frankly can't stand hearing that mumbling automated voice anymore! Please help.

    Is windows key same as f4? If so, when I pressed u, list that appeared did not have narrator option listed. Maybe f4 isn't windows key?

  • car8846 Nov 03, 2008

    That's the key I used(also f 4 key). As I said, when pressed u, narrator not there. Any other way to access utility manager? Maybe I'll try going to help & see if it will somehow take me to util. mgr.

    I did get to 'Ease of Access' but when I got to narrator, there was a 'start Narrator' to click on, but NOT a 'stop' or turn off narrator.

    I see on new computer (laptop) that it claims to be wireless(HP Pavilion dv9910us). Does that mean I don't need a router to be able to use it anywhere in home, even not connected to high speed modem? I was told at Radio Shack that I needed router, so I bought one. When I put router CD in for downloading, msg. appeared on screen that I already had a router. If I have it, what do I have to do to be able to use it anywhere in house. I thought I was 'chained' to desk w/it due to highspeed connection for Internet.

My dv9910 laptop will not turn on. It tries, the blue lights go on then go off, you can hear the HD spin up, then down, I tried removing battery and using AC power, still the same result.

The motherboard is defective & needs to be replaced with a new one.
You can find a replacement motherboard by searching on with the motherboard's model number.

Wireless issue

As far as your primary connection is DHCP and when its detects wireless conecction it will start getting to connect to the device becoz in you configuration you choose connect to any wireless access point option. At office your laptop try to connect but the secondary Ip address and primary configuration get conflict and primary configuration ask you to repair or shows limited connectivity option. Better is enable dhcp on you both sides so that you will not face any problems
