Question about HP Compaq Business Notebook 6910p - Core 2 Duo T8300 / 2.4 GHz - Centrino with vPro - RAM 2 GB - HDD...

1 Answer

I have hp compaq 6910p laptop, which worked at its best for several weeks after it was bought. but few days back it started freezing, taking too much time in startup and to run programs aswel. I was told by a friend that it might be due to some newly installed driver/software or due to error in hard disk. i uninstalled heavy softwares and tried defragmenting, but problem not solved. then i formatted whole hard disk and re-installed windows 7. problem remained same in new windows. I formatted hard disk once again and istalled windows 8 pro. unfortunately problem is still there. it takes so much time in loading programs and get freezed again and again specially when browsing internet. i have removed extra prorams using msconfig command, also installed ccleaner to remove temp files and to fix registry errors, and also installed avg anti virus and scanned for whole system, also tried defragmenting,,, but nothing changed... i am so much depressed now. please suggest me any solution for this trouble.

This must be
compaq week, from the piles of old puters sold at goodwill
why fool with such old hardware. its not supported?

now the deal.,
#1 slow is virus infection, not you, formatted, but is #1 #1 #1
#2, slow hard drive, they can in fact get old and glow slow
run SMART on it yet?, see if its FAILING as most are this old>
end #2 why own BOOT HDD< ever. now??????

3: CPU over heats, did you know all CPUs all slow down when too hot. ? it's in the core, that does, that, not the PC, inside the CPU
it has self preservation code, and a temperature sensor (diode)
and not just 1 sensor. either,.
4: there free software to use and see all core temps, 55c is par.
if overheated fix that NEXT !! ask.

5:why not put in a new SSD and end this HDD dogs life, like all savvy owners have done, long ago...(boot drives at least)

6: not enough ram. 2g is not enough now. ever the 270 MS updates and more bloatware w7 it eats tons of extra ram then it SWAPS out.
do you know the term swaps ? means HDD simulates RAM.
and HDD sucks, so swaps becomes, SUPER SUCKS.
look in task manager, see that happen, easy.

why not upgrade to W10, its way better and has a future.

SOURCE: slow boot up

spysweeper could be the problem, as it may be checking over the system before the pc is allowed to run, also if you have got more than one antivirus if any (hope you have!) or spyware programmes, they all use up system resources reducing your memory and processor speed, check what you have installed.

Remember, some trojans cannot be found by some lower end anti virus programmes, and can only be found by decent spyware programmes.

Also if possible run any antivirus and spyware programme in safe mode, to allow you to run it faster (F8 on boot up and choose safe mode)

you need a new xp pro disc. the reason the file failed to load was probably because there is a scratch or smuge on the disc.

SOURCE: AVG Free install fails

I had similar problems with AVG, and switched to AVAST home edition (free). www.download.com has avast home and all you have to do is supply them with your email address so they can send you the yearly registration key. Avast handles maleware as well as virus protection. Avast automatically updates and supplies the customer with quality maleware / virus protection at no cost to the consumer. No I do not work for Avast. I'm a medically retired technician. Download the program and install it, the problem with AVG goes away! The real problem I believe has something to do with the SP 1, 2. 3, (or all of them) and it stops AVG from reinstalling. Note the Avast home is free for home use, not business use. They do have a professional program that costs you to use, just like AVG.

SOURCE: Windows freezes after startup

Its better to backup your data - booting from Ultimate Boot CD and backup to an external hard drive.
Try to do regular format or low level format to know the status of the hard disk

Where dos jumper located on compaq 6910p and how can i remove bios password on 6910p


Most "laptop" computer do *NOT* have a jumper that can be used to bypass a BIOS password.
This is DELIBERATELY done, so that a thief in possession of your laptop cannot bypass your password, and thus cannot use your stolen laptop.

Find your original bill-of-sale, to prove ownership, and telephone HP/Compaq, and ask for Technical Supoprt in resetting the BIOS password.

Hp 6910p laptop wont turn off. Fan running. what gives?


Something is keeping it from shutting down. This could be caused by a faulty application or driver. My suggestion is to hold the power button down until the unit completely shuts down. Take out the battery, unplug the ac-adapter, attempt to power it on and then put the battery back in. Attempt to restart the computer.

Good Luck!

Is buying this Hp Compaq 6910p Battery a wise decision?


I have bought a couple of batteries from them before. They work just make sure that the voltage of the battery. (10.8v) matches the voltage on your battery. Also make sure that the mah 6600mah is greater or the same as the battery that you have. The mah is the mili ampers per hour (in other words the fuel) the bigger the mah the longer your battery will run. I also find ebay a great place to buy hp batterys from. Just make sure that they are oem hp and not a generic knock off and you will be fine and use the same rules from above. and also make sure they will fit your model number. I hope this helps
thanks
Steven.

I have an hp compaq 6910p lap top which a friend has password it in the setup and i am finding it difficult to use it. what should i do to clear the password in the setup. eric


You can try to open your computer and disconnect the cmos battery for 10 minutes. this is a small battery that keep the changes saved. When you disconnect it, All changes will be lost. So also the password. This is the sequence:

1: take off the accu
2: open up the laptop
3: take the cmos (small flat round battery) out
4: Wait 10 minutes
5: plug in you adapter and boot the laptop
6: when you see that the password is gone, power off the laptop
7: plug everything back in.
8: You are done! :)

Problems with the ac smart adapter Hp Compaq 6910p


You could possibly have a loose dc jack.Being able to wiggle it around and getting it to work tells me that the jack is probally going out.That wiggling your doing can cause an arc on your system board,which can short out your board.Stop wiggling your power supply adapter in your dc jack and take your computer to certified repair shop and have your jack checked.Best to rule this out first ,so no damage is done to your board.If you jack test good ,then replace you power supply....Good luck
