Brightness keys f2 and f3 not working after i replaced the hard disk


The brightness keys on laptops are interpreted by either the laptop hardware, or more likely, the operating system.
I would recommend going to HP's support site, http://support.hp.com, and downloading the latest chipset drivers from the site.
If you are running Windows 7 than try the Vista drivers if Win 7 is not listed as an operating system.

I have HP Pavilion 9727cl Entertainment notebook. After upgrading to windows 7 from Windows Vista ,it cannot find driver for coprocessor. On HP site they have listed some of their products for which...


haha. very funny. I have upgraded my laptop to windows 7 and am very satisfied with it except for one thing. The scroll keys on the touchpad are no long supported under Windows 7 vs. Vista. So, I was, like you disappointed that this happened. Maybe I should have been satisfied with windows vista, for that part of the computer working under vista but not 7.

I, however, like the windows 7 operating system very much compared to the slower buggier vista operating system.

Good luck on buying new pc or laptop computers that employ windows 7 or above (for the future).

The good news is that your Canon iP8500 printer is Windows Vista compatible. Driver page for them is here:

http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=357&modelid=10440

More good news, the Epson Perfection 1650 scanner is also compatible with Windows Vista.

It would also appear that your HP Laser Jet 5mp printer is compatible with Windows Vista:

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=25481&prodNameId=15013&swEnvOID=2093&swLang=8&mode=2&taskId=135&swItem=lj-44462-1

Whether or not to get a Dell or HP is a preference thing. The biggest thing you have to ask yourself is, how much are you wanting to spend on a new system? Both vendors are fairly comparable as far as hardware and support. The biggest thing I should mention is that, ensure that when you buy your system, to tell whomever you are buying it from that you need Windows Vista 32 bit. Not all of your components were compatible with Vista 64 bit.
Best of Luck and hope you have lots of fun with your new system!

Yes. Your product is supported. Drivers for HP printers are included with the Microsoft Windows Vista Operating System
HP has a Windows Vista driver solution available for your product. This driver will enable your product's basic functions to work. HP is committed to providing the best experience for HP products in the Windows Vista operating environment. You can conveniently find this driver in your Windows Vista operating system, today. At this time the driver will only be available on the Windows Vista operating system through the “Add a Printer�? wizard there is an alternative for this

remove all the drivers from add and remove program then
click start, then "run" type regedit, hit enter Registry Editor will open up.
Make backup of you registry, then on left side drill down to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Monitors
and check if you have "USB Monitor" key defined - If yes, you have different problem, this will not solve your problem. If not - right click on "Monitors" then click on new/key and name new key "USB Monitor" and then open this new key and on right side of the Registry editor under the (Default) right click select New - String Value this will create REG_SZ type value and name it "Driver" then double click to open it and in value data type "usbmon.dll"
Do the same thing to "Local Port" and "Standard TCP/IP Port" keys if you don't have them under Monitors key but you have them listed under AutorunsDisabled key. Then close registry editor, and restart, go to add printer/ local printer

I need a product key to activate my hp 530 laptop please


Usually Mfg's place a Microsoft sticker on the notebook. Try looking on the bottom side of the notebook. It will say product key & or Vista. Other companies place the product key on a CD sleve's. If the sticker is missing than write down the serial number & model number of the notebook & call HP. The number is on the main web site.
http://www.hp.com/

Don't take any **** from HP. (If your's is out of warranty). Ask them where the darn sticker was placed from factory.
Web site for the HP Pavilion dv6000z CTO Notebook.
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?lc=en&cc=us&product=3224052&dlc=en&
If HP does not help than check friends or family. Any Vista key will work. Even if it means you have to call toll free to Microsoft.
Tell them you replaced the hard drive. They'll issue you a new key by phone free. You may need to re-install windows to get at the toll free number. (Sorry I do not have it listed).
If you have a valid MS WinXP CD install that. You're notebook will run faster & HP does have a web site for drivers to work with XP. At this next link: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=228&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=3224052
Personnally if I had a key for Vista I'd ask for an email address but I do not. Vista is a bad thing.

Good luck!
