HP dv9740us back screen of death

I got a brand new loaner HP dv9740us (centrino duo, 17'',3GB,blue ray, Vista Home Premium etc.)
Worked fine for two days. I had mysql installed on it. While running my app to write some data into mysql table, it went into this infinit loop of system beep to indicate that my sql insert wasn't correct.

I had to forcefully shut the laptop using power switch to get out of this loop. (killin the process from the task manager didn't work)

Now when I reboot I see lights come up but just black screen of death.
Don't even see the bios messages in the window.

    Mysql install is not supported but there is a way to install it.
    Anyway I got HP chat support and here's what I did as instructed to get it working again.
    1. removed battery
    2.disconnected ac adapter
    3.kept power button pressed for 1 minute
    4. connected ac adapter
    5.hit power button
    It started to boot normally
    6 put the battery back.

    The support person said something about static charge accumulation and needing to drain it :)

Vista is slow


The slowness of Vista depends on the components that you have for the computer. Did you buy your computer with Win Vista installed? If you upgraded your computer from XP to Vista, you have to make sure that it is covered by the system requirements of Vista.

If you have a brand new computer with Vista installed in it, then there could be a little glitch on the program. I've used different kinds of Vista (Home Premium, Vista Business and Vista Ultimate) but none of them worked slow. If that's a brand new computer, I would suggest to contact the manufacturer or the reseller.

Have a great day!

MS seems to have a theme going with updating drivers that cause problems. Try this . . .

Go to www.nvidia.com and download the latest driver package. You may need to run in Safe Mode with network or use a different computer.

Go into device manager and uninstall the graphics card.

Restart the computer. Cancel the installation of the new hardware when it comes up. Run the setup file that you downloaded from nVidia.

Restart the computer.

Good luck and please let me know how it turns out!
