Question about HP 285527-001 - Compaq Presario 900&Presario 1500 Series 8X Laptop DVD Drive (285527001DVDROM) CD-ROM Drive

1 Answer

Presario I want to know how many bits there are on my video card? How can I find this out. Also, would I be able to take the video card out of my laptop and put it into my desktop computer (if it is a better video card than my desktop has) so that my computer runs better graphics? My laptop does not hold a charge and others seem to have the same problem. I brought it to a computer store and they basically told me it would cost MORE to fix than to buy another laptop. It is a compaq presario 900 series pp2140 Thanks for your help.

On that model, most likely 16 bit..maybe 32 but that would be unusual for one that old

Hava no sound in my presario 2100 after i installed window 7


The issue is most likely that your sound card drivers as well as other things are not installed.
Take a look at the end of my windows 7 installation guide. The part about after installation, also note that you can use Vista drivers on windows 7 as long as the drivers are for the same bit version, 32bit vista drivers will work with 32bit windows 7, and 64bit vista drivers will work with 64bit windows 7

Compaq presario evo 1015v


sounds like a bad screen this might be able to be remedied by hooking the laptop straight to a computer monitor threw the ports provided in the back
also you could have bumped something loose inside like a video card if any cards or memmory comes loose this will give you black screen of death the laptop will have to opened and cards pressed down gently
theres the solution of your power supply on the laptop went out and you need a replacement
if power supply went out it doesnt hurt your comp it just makes it hard to run

No sound


It cant be the drivers if you were running your machine and if tried using the onboard sound card, compaq drivers are included in most operating systems (Windows especially).

I know it will sound crazy but
  1. have you tried to check your volume settings i.e. in windows volume control unmute everything and increase the volume of all the bars especially WAV, MIDI, and MASTER,
  2. Have you tried using diffrent speakers or even headphones
From what you say it cant be drivers neither is it your card. And since your card was playing before then its compatible.

sounds like your screen settings need to be optimized for performance..go to control panel, system, advanced, and top panel should be visual performance. open that up and see which makes it work a bit faster.
