    there's a plug thats loose. hp is an idiot company. i have the same problem. don't waste your time installing drivers. unplug your computer. take out your battery. get a phillips head screw driver and un-screw the middle screw. take up the plastic and you'll find that a plug is loose. if your lucky you'll be able to just plug it back in but in my case when ever i swivil my monitor the plug comes right out. good luck. call tech support. you may need a new wire.

How to open hp 2310m monitor

1) Take off the stand, and pop the back hp symbol off. Take out the four screws under the hp piece, and flip the monitor over.
2) On the front of the monitor, pry and pop off the black ring (bezel?) around the screen. This piece is not held on by any screws, so this part should be simple.
3) Now that you have undone all the screws, you can lift the screen out of the casing, but be careful about all the wires. They all have simple pull-apart connectors, but you wouldn't want to break any wires. The only connections should be the left speaker, right speaker, and the button panel on the bottom.

I'm sure you can take it from there, depending on what you're doing. Hope this helps!

Is my AOC 9170 monitor compatible with HP Pavillion 6523W Windows 7? Does this monitor have built in speakers?

Hi there,

I am not sure about the speakers. The best way to tell if it has speakers is if you can physically see them. They are usually located at the bottom of the monitor and they look like little screens on either side of it. If it doesn't have HDMI or a line in jack (speaker plug) that you can see then it won't have built in speakers for sure.

If the monitor has the right connections to plug into your HP computer, which it should. Then it will work with your computer. Your computer has both VGA and DVI monitor connections on it so either of these should work as long as your monitor has the connections (which it should have at least one).

Log on screens are not recognisable by finger print reader

ok.. please update your related drivers firstly.. but the actual trick is to go

Manage add-ons, and find your related add-on for Explorer (DigitalP in my case on my HP Laptop) and ENABLE it..

also right click My computer on your desktop, then click Manage,
then find and load Biomethric Authentication Service, under services.. (DPHost in my case)

i am almost positive in most cases, enabling your digital finger print reader on MANAGE ADD-ONs secction must help..

Fingerprint reader

did you setup the finger print reader before?

Here's what you have to do...

Sign in to windows using your finger print, once your able to sign in then you may have to reconfigure the finger print utility. there should be an icon at the bottom right hand side of the screen or go to all programs or under the control panel. it should be in there.

if you were able to set it up before, you should be able to change it again.

My tablet laptop help

First of all, we need to check whether the Webcam is listed in the Device Manager or not.

Follow the instructions to access Device Manager in Vista :

Right click on My Computer and select Properties.
In the window that opens, click on Device Manager in the left pane of the window.
The Device Manager opens in a seperate window.

In the Device Manager window, you sholuld be able to locate the Webcam which sould be under Imaging Devices or Universal Serial Bus Controllers.

If it is listed, you need to right click on it and select Disable to disableit.

Now, right click it again and select Enable.

Now, try using the webcam.

If the error message still appears, try stopping the Windows Media Center Receiver service which will be actually used when any video capturing device is being used like a TV Tuner Card in Notebooks.

Click on Start and type Services in the Search box.

Right click on the Services among the results in the top of the start menu and select Run as administrator.

This will open the Windows Services window.

In this, locate the Windows Media Center Receiver Service and right click on it and select Properties.

In the Startup type, select Manual and click on Stop button to stop the service.

Now, close the window and restart the Notebook.

You should be able to use the webcam normally.

Touch screen stopped working

Hi Everyone

I have the solution to the touch screen problem. You need to get the support and strip down document for yout touch screen from HP.. for instance the one for the tx1000 series is c00853874.pdf

you will need another machine or to print the pages required to strip your machine all the way down to removing the monitor, and the surround on the screen.

the document is step by step...label the screw etc, you'll be fine...even if you have never done it before.

the result is the terrible build quality of the machines. the ribbon access cables for the webcam, and for the touch screen are poorly installed.

I found that my touchs screen access cable was not actually properly installed at all, and was only barely contacting when i received the machine.

my touch screen is working properly, you need to be gently with everything, the circuit board that the webcam and the touch screen connect to is directly behind the screen..

you must strip the screen down, and then lift the glass... there are 4 screws around the edges of the glass when you have it stripped down... once you lift the screen up.. there is a circuit board on the rear of the top of the plastic screen back. the are connectors going into this...for the quick access buttons around the screen edges...the webcam,.. and the touchscreen.

i have to say i just discussed this with a guy called GINO on Hp online support...and he doesnt care that this is the solution...or that there has been a manufacturing fault since day on.. they never plugged the cables in properly.

email me if you get stuck...
