Question about HP Pavilion DV5234US Notebook Laptop

My amd processor

Thanks a lot for ur reply.

Actually i just wanted to confirm that whether it is o.k. for my notebook to get warm very early(hardly 5-10 mins).......as i heard only when one plays games or other high processing power applications that the notebook gets heated.And yes the degree of heat remains same n doesnt go up once it has attained that much in the beginning.I came acroos that notebook can hang or automatically shut down once it heats too much.was just a bit worried that is it an inherent problem that i may face in future due to A.M.D. processor??


also i have been given a win vista basic edn. I came to know that to install WIN XP i will face problems as i wud need drivers for that.What exactly are drivers n how do i get them?

one more problem is that my NOTEBOOK hardly lasts for 1 hour 10 mins without battery power even when it is in the power saver mode(whether i play games,multimedia..or whether i do simple c programming).....as i heard it should last for atleast 2:30 hrs.

My model is HP-Pavilion dv5-1106ax.

Tha a lot for ur reply n hope you solve this one too!!!!

I hav a similer prob i hav the same model and i installed windows vista ultimate i downloaded all the drivers from hp. Now the prob is that the temp reach 90c. even my battery does not last for long. My friends suggested me to install AMD Cool'n'quiet this s/w optimizes the cpu usage and thus reduces the power consumption and haeting of the computer.
but i m not able to find this software for vista.

I wouldnt be too concerned about the "heat" especially since it doesnt get 'hotter'.

Drivers are software programs that make your computers parts work properly with Windows (or any other OS as appropriate)

Goto hp's website and get the drivers ..

It could just be the battery, they all fluctuate .. the only way to know is get another battery or accept the battery life time and enjoy your 'puter.

Does it actually have a wireless network adapter? Check the network adapter settings. Does it show both LAN and wireless? If it does you may need to use one of the Function keys to launch the interface to turn on the wireless.

Screeen is upside down


If you have a Windows OS, press and hold the ALT and CTRL (control) keys and then press the Up arrow. (If that doesn't work, try holding the Alt and CTRL keys and pressing the left (or right) arrow key twice.) If that fails, right click on the desktop (Windows+D will minimize all programs), anywhere with no running programs or icons. Then select the Screen Resolution option. Look for the line Orientation; use the drop down menu to select the correct orientation. Click Apply and then confirm the setting change if a confirmation window pops up. (This works in Windows 7 and 8.) For older Windows versions on laptops, you may need to select Graphics Properties (or a similar line) and then repeat this. The Windows screen rotation option is dependent on your video card. With some models, you'll need to open the graphics card properties to undo the rotation. You should see a line for the graphics adapter when you right click on the Display.

For Macintosh OS, make sure that the System Preferences is closed. Then open it by pressing Option/alt + CMD . Select the line Display. Find the button labeled Rotation: Standard then choose the correct screen orientation.

I hope this helps.

Hide file folder WITH A password


For the most part you need 3rd party software, or a USB drive with security built in. Just remember you are at the mercy of those companies if you lose the password. Plus some software will only works locally. For instance if someone removes the drive and connects it to another computer the files are wide open.
Win 7 Ult and Ent (high end editions have Bitlocker built in.
A simple way is to create a folder within his login account docs and choose hidden as the properties. The only way to see it would be to change folder properties and make hidden files visible. This is just cloaking, because anybody with admin rights can see them.

How do i reset my computer to an earlier date?


Most computers have a RTC or "real time clock" in the BIOS. BIOS (or "Basic Input Output System") controls how data gets into and out from the processor (via keyboard, disk, etc.). Be careful making changes. The BIOS is normally only accessable when the computer is powered on or reset, and then only while performing the POST (or "Power On Self Test"). At this time your screen may display text describing memory, drives, controllers, etc. Some machine have a "silent boot" enabled which displays a manufacturer's graphic or logo instead of this data. It is during this time the the BIOS may be accessed. Depending on the manufacturer of your computer, a key (Delete, Escape, F1 or some other) or key combination (ALT + F1, ALT + S, or some other) will be needed. It is required to press the key or key combination prior to the Operating System loading message(s). This can be done be repeatedly pressing the key (or key combination) once every second (or two) during the POST. Holding the key(s) down the entire time - or pressing them too often will result in an error, and require starting over again.

Once the BIOS screen is presented, you will have to scroll the entire page(s) to find the clock. Most BIOS brands have more than just a single page of settings. Using the the up, down, left, right, PgUp, PgDn & Enter keys - navigate to the clock hours and minutes and adjust as needed. Make sure that you SAVE changes before exiting the BIOS screen. Upon exit, the computer will reboot with your settings.

Your Operating System may also provide a way for you to change the system time (and date) as well. Try clicking on the time / date to see if it will bring up a dialog box that allows you to make the change.

I hope this helps and good luck! If my answer was helpful, please rate it "4 thumbs up" Thanks!
