Question about Computers & Internet

My HP Pavilion DV7 4150si notebook suddenly is displaying that it has only 2096 Gig of ram instead of 8192 Gig Ram that it has inside and its super slow now.

I got an adive from a friend after I have been struggling with this machine's slow reponse when I am running programmes on it that I should try and see how much memory on system configuration and it was displaying only zero under memory and displaying only 1 processor. So I put in the 8 for processor but the memory dont want to take 8192, every time I press ok and apply and when I check it again its gone back to display zero. So what I did was to put in 2096 Gig of memory and it saved that one until now and it is running on this 2096 Gig but I would like to know why it is doing this and what could be the possible solution to this problem. Thanks.

SOURCE: HP Pavillion Laptop

I have just experienced same p[roblem with my Pavillion laptop. Seems to be a graphics card problem. (Hp have issued extended warranties to cover this problem, which is apparently quite common in the pavillion range?)
I have had to send my machine back to HP to fix it. gah.

SOURCE: The HP Presario A900 shuts down within 5 minutes of start up

If your laptop is overheating, it means that the Processor fan is not working. You can damage it further if you keep trying to us it. Although I must say, this is the first time I've heard of using frozen veggies to cool it down. I have a client that bought a portable Air conditioner to cool his laptop. I fixed it by replacing the fan.

The fact that the unit works while being cooled externally points directly to the fan.
Is the unit out of warranty?
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

SOURCE: error message after installing memory ram upgrade.....

Your memory appears compatible with your model of laptop. It is possible that you have a bad stick of memory. Try installing the sticks 1 at a time and boot up with each stick separately and see what happens. If 1 of the sticks allows you to boot but the other does not then I would contact PNY for a replacement stick. Just to double check here you are installing 2 gigs total not 2 2gig sticks for a total of 4 gigs. Max memory for Dell Inspiron laptops is 2 Gigs.

SOURCE: HP laptop display issue

I was using a HP DV6910US and i faced a problem when my laptop froze and i had to press thepower button to reboot.

But on reboot my laptop had all the lights on keyboard light on with no dispaly on screen/blank.

I have called the HP helpline and they told me to do these steps...
1.Disconnect all cables and usb connections of the laptop including power cord.
2.Remove the Laptop Battery.
3.Do not connect the Power cord now,Instead press and hold the power button for 25 seconds.
4.Now connect the powercord and put the laptop battery in place.
5.Now press the power button on your laptop and as the lights come on immediately press the Function/fn repeatedly.

Your problem is now solved as the screen comes on to life.
I was told that the problem is something related to the memory of the battery.

I hope my answer will help many Hp owners to solve the simple problem.
If you cannot get through you need to call the HP Toll free helpline at your place.

Hp pavilion ze4200 blue leds come on then does nothing

You will either have to check the RAM of your system or the display.

To checkout the RAM, open up a cover underneath your computer with a single screw( that usually is in the middle of the computer). It contains RAM modules. Press the RAM modules so that they get fixed.

Do this and see if it works.

My Hp Pavillion laptop dv2214tu doesnot boot beyond the HP INVENT logo page. I tried performing the Primary Hard Disk check as stated on the HP Support site but its not happening.I also reseated the RAM...

Unscrew your Laptop HardDrive bay and remove your harddisk first, then try to boot your system wthout the Harddisk inside. If it Boots past the HP Invent Logo Page, then your harddisk is the one that is faulty, if still doesnt, get another good, working RAM, apart from the one in your system, and use it to test your laptop...making sure that the harddisk is still not inside...then if it boots insert your Harddisk back with the new RAM, and restart your system.
If in the first case it boots (i.e wihout the harddisk inside)...then it means your harddrive is faulty, just retrieve your file on it and get a new one.
If in the second case it works (i.e with a new external RAM) then just change your RAM instead.

Is 1 gig of ram enough memory to support vista to run?

Hey there you want to use vista?? lol good luck. You need a min of 2 gigs ram to run vista but should ideally have 4 gigs for good operation. vista is a memory hog. You can change the configuration to use less but still need at least 2 gigs
