Question about HP Compaq 6910p Notebook PC PC Notebook

1 Answer

What is wrong with my HP 6910p, battery discharging, volume lighting up..

I would like to know why my volume icons above the keyboard, which is a touch pad, are lighting up even when the notebook has been shut down...and no ac adapter attached...then overnight the battery is dead, I have a new battery so it is NOT THAT. I dont think the battery icons should be lit up...it was a used notebook..and some of the keys,(power button) was a little sticky from something I think was spilt in it..

Sounds like liquid damage .. you can google your model number and find videos on taking it apart with some patience and a good Phillips you should not have any problems once apart check the Mother Board for any signs of corrosion ( usually crusty green ..brownish in color and clean with 90 % or above Isopropyl Alcohol .. Good luck

SOURCE: light-up volume bars on the hp pc notebook dv7 1132nr

Hi Folks....
If you are talking about the Quick Launch buttons of the Notebooks from where we usually increase, decrease or mute the Volume, the lights will be still and will not increase or decrease with the increase or decrease in Volume.
However, you do have a utility which should be preinstalled in Notebooks called HP Quick Touch which shows the bars on the Display when the volume is Increased or Decreased  using the Quick Launch buttons. This application is not compatible with Windows Vista 64 bit edition.
The HP Quick Touch application is available for download from the link below :
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp38001-38500/sp38358.exe

Save the file in the Notebook and double click it once the download is completed to install the application.
Hope this helps....

SOURCE: dv9000 won't power on or charge. blue lightning bolt flashes

I just had this problem with my HP Pavilion dv9005us Notebook PC, and the problem is one of two things (that I know).

  1. Your'e Laptop's battery is completely empty, and needs to be plugged in to charge for an hour or two
  2. Or your laptop cord is broken, or isn't working properly.
For me, it was the secon problem. I went online searching for answers as to where I could buy a new cord for my Laptop. My previous one was universal, as the one that came with the notbook was chewed by my puppy. So Staples Canada, (or US) and Futureshop where the only places I could but this cord. They had the laptops on one wall, and the cords underneath them. In total, I paid $112.00, $89.99 plus tax, and $10 for an extended 2 year unlimited warranty. It sucked forking out the money, but I knew that I could trust the HP brand, and now have a working laptop.

Hope this helped (:
-Hannah

How to turn on &off blue-tooth in hp 6910p


i've compiled everything for you and highlighted your answer

Special instructions for the HP Compaq 6910p


BEFORE WINDOWS INSTALLATION 1) MAC addresses The MAC addresses of the Ethernet (cable) and the wireless interface (WiFi) are written on a label on the side of the box. They are also written on a label at the back of the notebook. They must be registered in the CERN network database via http://network.cern.ch (using another computer) before starting the Windows installation.
2) Wireless switch on
When you start the installation, verify that the wireless light (with an antenna symbol) above the keyboard is on (blue light) in order to install properly the wireless drivers. If not, touch that antenna symbol with your finger: it is a sensitive button.

WINDOWS XP After Windows XP installation 1) Keyboard_Filter_01 As by default users are not in the Administrators group, a window titled "Found New Hardware" may tell you: "You must be member of the Administrators group on this computer to install this hardware: Keyboard_filter_01". In that case ignore that message and first regain administrative privileges by using the NICEAdmin application to add your account in the Administrators group. For that click on the Start button, select All Programs then NiceAdmin then Change Account Status. On the popup window click on Add Me, enter your login password and click on the green button (with an arrow). Then Reboot (a logoff/login is not sufficient). This time, the installation of the Keyboard_Filter_01 driver will be done silently.
Don't forget to use NICEAdmin again to remove yourself from the Administrator group in order to improve computing security after your next login. But don't log off until you have installed all your programs (for example the Bluetooth software explained below).
2) WiFi To setup a wireless network connection, you must be within range of a wireless Access Point. Check also that the wireless interface is switched on (blue light above the keyboard).
When Windows detects a wireless network for the first time, it should prompt you with a Wireless networks detected message in the notification area of your taskbar. If so click the notification message. If you are not notified, click on the Start button, point to Connect To and click on Wireless Network Connection. In either case, you should see the dialog box Choose a wireless network. Select CERN and click connect. On the warning "You are connecting to the unsecured network ...", click on Connect Anyway. Wait until connected to close that dialog box.
3) Bluetooth

If you need to connect to Bluetooth devices, HP provides a software to manage your connections. To be allowed to install this software, you must be registered in the Administrators Group of your computer. For that you can use NICEAdmin: click on the Start button, select All Programs then NiceAdmin then Change Account Status. On the popup window click on Add Me, enter your login password and click on the green button (with an arrow). Then Log Off and login again.

Check that your notebook wireless interface is switched on (wireless button above the keyboard with blue light on). The Bluetooth installation package is located in "C:\SwSetup\HP Bluetooth software v5.1E 26Mar07". In that folder, double click on Setup.exe to start the installation.

After the installation, you can use NICEAdmin again to remove yourself from the Administrator group.
4) DVD player
If you need to play DVD videos you can install the WinDVD player provided by HP for your portable. First right click on the CERN CMF (Computer Management Framework) icon in the system tray. If the CMF icon is not present reboot your computer and wait some minutes. Choose Add/Remove CMF Packages. On the CMF page tick the install box for the package WinDVD player for HP and click on the Save button. Then a CMF balloon should appear proposing to install WinDVD. Click on the balloon (or double-click on the CMF icon). In the CMF windows select WinDVD player for HP and click on Start Now. After some minutes CMF should display a balloon telling The installation of the package *WinDVD player for HP* completed successfully.

WINDOWS VISTA After Windows Vista installation 1) WiFi To setup a wireless network connection, you must be within range of a wireless Access Point. Check also that the wireless interface is switched on (blue light above the keyboard).
Click on the Windows Start button then choose Connect To. Then select CERN, click on Connect and then on Connect Anyway. When the window announcing Successfully connected to CERN appears, put a checkmark in Save this network and in Start this connection automatically. Finally click on the Close button.
2) Bluetooth

To activate the Bluetooth, press the wireless button (antenna symbol above the keyboard) to get a blue light on that button. Then click on the HP Wireless Assistant window which appears in the bottom right corner of the screen. If the status of Bluetooth is not on, click on turn on. Close the HP Wireless Assistant.
3) DVD player
If you need to play DVD videos you can install the WinDVD player provided by HP for your portable. First right click on the CERN CMF (Computer Management Framework) icon in the system tray. If the CMF icon is not present reboot your computer and wait some minutes. Choose Add/Remove CMF Packages. On the CMF page tick the install box for the package WinDVD player for HP and click on the Save button. Then a CMF balloon should appear proposing to install WinDVD. Click on the balloon (or double-click on the CMF icon). In the CMF windows select WinDVD player for HP and click on Start Now. After some minutes CMF should display a balloon telling The installation of the package *WinDVD player for HP* completed successfully.

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
