There are two likely reasons for this. One is a dead battery on the motherboard. Remove the battery and check it with a multi-meter or just replace it. If the battery is good, your BIOS is probably corrupt. Go to your manufacturer's website (hp.com in your case) and flash your BIOS to the latest version. If that does not work either post back with your exact computer model number and operating system and let's do some more digging.

Hyper-threading is technology available on some Intel processors. If your process and motherboard are hyper-threading, you can enable to option in your Windows operating system. Hyper-threading allows your processor to perform multiple operations at once. Hyper-threading is used on multi-core processors and will share the workload among each core.

Restart your computer and repeatedly press the "Del" key or the F2 Key to enter BIOS this will vary depending on your computer and BIOS Press "Tab" to highlight "Main" then use the down arrow key to select "Hyper-Threading-Technology" then press "Enter". Select "Enabled" then press "F11" to exit and save changes. Your computer will now restart with hyper-threading enabled. Click "Start" then "Control Panel" and double-click "Device Manager". A window will appear showing your computer's hardware devices. Click the "Processors" drop-down menu. Right click one of your processor cores then click "Properties". Confirm hyper-threading is enabled. Hope this helps.

Hi I'm getting a 8709 error code from my CDJ 800 any idea how to fix this?


According to Pioneer there are 2 possible faults associated with this error.

Option 1 - Error in mechanical operations Unrecoverable: Turn the power off. The error indication will be cleared. If the error still shows then it's Option 2.

Option 2 - Communication error between operating section and main section The error indication is cleared when the communication is finished (if it can finish).

Communication fault between the control interface (the PCB with all the switches on) and the main PCB (the motherboard in the base of the unit). It could be that the main ribbon cable that connects between the two has come loose or damaged. The control interface works on a digital PCM system, and if there is a problem with this, the motherboard throws a fit.

My PC doesn't load


Restart computer. Watch closely at the bottom of the screen for an F command.

This F command will allow to enter setup.

When computer is loading, start pressing F12 repeatedly until setup is opened.

When setup opens, you'll see a file menu that runs across the top of the screen. It will start from the left and move to the right - press F9. When prompted, select "restore default settings". Move to each file menu and press F9 and set "default settings".

When you come to the Exit menu, do the same thing, then select the Exit Menu, and choose the "Exit Saving Settings" option.

Once it exits, it will automatically restart and begin the loading process into Windows (or your operating system).

If the OS does not load, you will need to re-enter setup: under the file menu, search for an option that will allow you to enable a second F command which should be F5 or F10. Once this is done, go to exit, and select "exit saving settins".

The computer will begin loading, but you will want to restart the computer - watch again at the bottom of the screen for the new F command - remember what it is when you are in setup, and begin pressing it as before with the F12 command - the F5 (F10) will bring you to an option menu for starting the computer - select the "start in safe mode" option.

If the computer does not load in safe mode, you will need to format the hard drive and re-install the Operating System.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Turn on power and starting pressing the "del" key to enter the BIOS. Find the place that says "Load default setting" and select it. Then select the "save and exit" option. System reboots and should work.

Usb ports


This can only mean on thing that the USB port on your computer is not properly working, what you can do here first is to run the setup CD for your motherboard so all the software including the driver for the USB port will be reinstall, if after that still not working the USB port of the computer is already bad...
