Found a strange symptom on a MSI netbook with Windows 7 Starter OS; it would take a long time to boot up. After the initial Windows splash display, the screen would go blank, and take several minutes to come back to the logon screen.
After many trials with reloading the whole drive, checking disks, finally isolated it to the presence of the Kingston micro SD adapter, but without a micro SD card in the adapter.
Without a flash card in the adapter, it apparently tries to access it regardless, and hangs things up for a long time. Removed the adapter, and it booted and shut down almost instantly in comparison.
The adapter is not a simple pass through of the micro SD card, so if there is no flash card installed, leave it unplugged, or it may slow things down considerably.
Didn't find anything on a search related to this symptom and problem, so I thought I'd note it just in case anyone else runs into this situation, maybe save them some time troubleshooting...
To the best of my knowledge, you cannot change the OS on that notebook as it is an embeded system. The Gsystem is burned into a chip on the mother board and the only way at present is to reprogram a like chip and solder it in place after de-soldering the old chip. Then you would have to buy another embeded system and learn to program an EEprom chip.
This is the update program link:
you will need to download the above
After you get the software, you need to find a SD card which is more than 512M to copy the software to setup the software.
Please do as follows:
1. Please decompress the files , open the VT8505 folder. Then copy the file “script” to your SD card.
(Very important, you only need copy the script folder to your SD card. don't include the VT8500 or VT8505 folder.)
2. Turn off your netbook,
3. Insert the SD card to your netbook.
4. Turn on your netbook. Then the software will setup to your netbook
Automatically. Usually it will take several minutes to complete setup.
5. After completed setup. It will show a windows screen calling for your to turn off the netbook.
6. Pull the SD card out off the netbook.
7. Then turn on the netbook and all shoudl work fine.
1) There is SD card reader on pavilion dv 1000, so you need adapter in which you insert mini SD card to make it SD 2) If you have that adapter, check adapter. Maybe it's broken. 3) If your card is biger, like 2GB or higher you may try updatenig drivers (I read on one web page: "
There was a software update for support of reading and using higher memory SD cards, for my pavilion ZV5000, on the HP Software update website." )
Yes, these HC cards require a different reader, than traditional SD cards. The builtin one on the laptop probably doesn't support them, since any SD card above 2gb is technically considered an HC SD card. so my advice is to go to a cheap computer parts supplier, and see if they have a reader that will work for HC SD Cards.
DAMN THE MAKERS OF FLASH MEMORY FOR BEING SO COMPLEX!!!!
