If gaming and burning dvd you will need a minimum of 512MB ram, although if you have not got a seperate dedicated graphics card and only have on-board graphics, 512MB can soon be consumed by memory hungry applications. When playing games your notebook will automatically assign a set amount of memory for graphics, leaving little left for running the application. The same can be said for burning dvd's, this takes a lot of processor and memory. But give your fan vents a gentle hoover out and check the notebook is used in a well ventilated area. The processor may simply not be upto the job of gaming, as notebooks, unless as mentioned before about having a seperate graphics card are'nt able to cope as well.

HP Envy laptop supposedly overheating


Repeated high temperatures are terrible for computers you should check the fans or have someone check them. If those are fine it might be a motherboard or processor problem.

My hp pavilion zd8000 laptop with XP installed will not allow me to load a golf game from a CD Rom I purchased some 14 years ago. I used to have this installed a nd played regularly on a previous computer.


The game may be not supported with the current Operating System Perhaps!!! What was your old computer's Operating system? And since the CD-ROM is 14 years old does it has too many scratch?? These days computer CD/DVD drives will never read the disc if they are scratched...

Finally, when you try installing the game, do you encounter any error message? if yes please post it....always remember if your posting your problem in forum, make sure that you provide all information about the issue.

Sudden shutdown


If the battery is full and still shuts down suddenly then it could be a heatsinking problem on your Notebook. Also try unchecking the option "Automatically Restart" from StartUp & Recovery section in System Properties.

HP L2000 Sudden shutdown wont power up power supply good


what makes you think the ac park is ok
19vdc measured with a voltmeter proves this , only.
a 2005 (as old as) Laptop
its not new, things this old do fail.
Laptops are like dog years.. 7:1. so yours is 84years old
to fix a desktop is super easy
to test a laptop takes greater skills, the take down. is tricky
we take out the battery,
the the pack just make the fan run in the PC
does it>? if not the pack is bad.
or the MOBO regs are shut down. (shorts on any thing inside
some times the 19vdc is ok, at that pack
then 1 inches inside the PC its dead due to that silly power jack loves to fail. but not taking the thing down and testing that
its all just a guessing game...
the only insight there is on electronics, is power first.
no power, no joy.
test the power feeds first.

Start up problem with HP laptop.


Try to read this link:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/fastFaqLiteDocument?lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=18703&docname=c00608578

Try the "Recovering from the recovery disks" section but it only works if you have a special partition that cannot be re-format/re-partitioned inside called "EISA partition". all your data will be gone though.

HP Pavilion zd8000 unexpected Shutdowns


Hi, There might be 3 possibilities why your laptop is shutting down: 1. You have a shortcut key in your keyboard that is pressed (accidentally or reacting to other keystrokes) that is configured to shut down your laptop; 2. You have a virus that is programmed to shutdown your laptop after a pre-determined amount of time; and/or 3. Your battery and/or AC adapter is no longer capable of supplying the power needs of your laptop. A few things you can do: a. Verify/Check if you have enabled any key stroke shortcuts for a quick shutdown; b. Check your Control Panel, Power Options, Advance tab, for any autoshutdown features, disable; c. use a known good/updated anti virus program and scan your drives. It might also be a good idea to run a program similar to Ad-Aware to scan for malicious ads; d. Charge your battery overnight and see if the problem persists. Or run the laptop with the AC adapter always plugged in to the mains and to your HP Pavilion ZD8000. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.
