Multiple Displays on HP dv2601TX

It is almost 15-16 months I have been using this laptop. now it has started showing a new problem, ie, multiple displays. I have searched throughout the internet and have found that many other people with the same model laptop have similar or exactly the same issue. I have also found that the problem is related to the NVIDIA graphics chip. The problem has occurred due to over heating of the system throughout the time period (overheating is yet another problem of this model). The only practical solution possible is to get the graphics card repaired or replaced with new one (which is very costly).And it would be better if you guys get it repaired from local technicians as this issue is not considered under your guarantee and HP will cost you a lot.Apart from this another fact remains that HP Service is one of the worst service I have come across in my entire life. It is their hobby to test your patience and waste your time. It took them two months to replace my battery. Anyways, even if you get it repaired, there is a chance of re-occurrence of this issue. Well, my idea is to sell off this system once i get it temporarily repaired, as i think, there is no use of spending a huge amount on an outdated laptop. Well the choice is yours !

In my dealings with HP and their supposed high end laptops....I'm astonished you got 15-16 months out of it. I refurbish them and go to extremem lengths to make sure that they don't come back with ptoblems and knock on wood I have yet to have a return because of a part or system failure. Sell your laptop on E-Bay and at least get some of your money back from the experience. I usually end up buying the laptops with problems and tearing them down and rebuilding. My focus is eliminating the over-heating issue. There are some changes out there, HP is releasing new BIOS updates for its laptops...these new BIOS instructions contain new algorythims to make the fan more efficient and run faster and longer to help cool the unit. Copeer sheeting is also used on the processor and graphics to augment cooling. Good luck, ParrotHead PC Repair

This is a known fault in the Nvidia mobile gpu chipset. The only fix is motherboard replacement as there is no seperate video card. You can find a replacement mother board for about $120 on Ebay and a few other places, If its good then you have a usable system again but for how long is the question. You may want to consider just parting it out as the price of repair and your sale price isn't going to add up to being worthwhile. You won't be ahead of the game.

HELP PLEASE!!! NEC NP-V260 Computer In can not detect signal from the Computer


Which connection type are you trying to use (VGA, HDMI, etc). It would help to know what kind of computer you are using and whether you are using the projector as the only display or trying to do multiple displays.</br>
If using a laptop then check and see if you have a key to switch displays. It will usually be one of the function keys (F4, F5, etc) and will most likely be a secondary action of the key requiring you to hold down your FN key then push the function key. This will switch between your laptop's outputs.</br>
If using a desktop you need to go to your display properties. Win7 right click the desktop and go to Screen Resolution. You need to make sure that the Multiple Displays setting is set to Duplicate These Displays or Extend These Displays to make sure that the display adapter is sending a signal to the projector.

I am attempting to connect my HP pavilion dv9000 to a HP 2310e monitor, but it doesn't recognize the monitor via the HDMI cable


You must make sure it's configured correctly: make sure the monitor is up and running (not in Sleep) , that the HDMI cable is firmly plugged in (use a new one to be sure), then right click on the desktop, click NVidia Control Panel, under Select a Task expand Display and click Run multiple display wizard . If the monitor isn't picked up then go to Set up multiple displays options and see if the monitor appears in the second setting (Select the displays...) - if it doesn't then click the MY Monitor is not shown in the list option and follow the procedure to force its detection.
If even that fails then the video driver is corrupted, you will have to uninstall it, download the latest one and reinstall it.

I have a HP Pavillion Lap top and forgot the pass word that goes with my user name


Restart your computer. When your computer is restarting spam the f8 key until it shows you a black screen with multiple options. One of those options will be "Safe Mode". Select this option and it should give you the option to login as administrator when it displays the user select screen. When you select administrator and it lets you in change your account password. Restart your computer again and login with the new password you set.

Laptop dispalys to monitor but laptop panel cannot be activate


Hi,

Thanks for all the details..

The issue seems to be with the video card drivers here...

Go to www.hp.com/suport and download the latest video card and the chipset drivers

before you download ...uninstall the nvidia chipset or any display software from program and features.

after you have installed the software.. go to the nvidia control panel > setup multiple monitors. and browse throughout the options >
It should be dual display and not extended display.

Also try with a new user profile...

Hope this helps..
Regards,
Anup

Multiple IE,internet explorer windows are popping up when ever i try to open a webpage


If you're open to other IE substitutes, you can try Mozilla Firefox. You can download it from http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/. Firefox is very good in blocking pop-ups.

If IE is still your choice, you can upgrade it to IE 7, which can be found at:
