Question about HP Open Box Pavillion 1.5GHz Wireless Notebook with Combo Drive ( Model ZE2015us ) (PX382UAABABB1) PC Notebook

1 Answer

I have an HP Pavilion Ze4900 laptop that I've bought 5 years ago. It still works fine under 40GB HDD and 512 RAM, 1.6GHZ, and with an XP sp3 OS. Anyway, is there a way I could upgrade it to a modern laptop that could work with windows 7, with 320 or higher HDD and 2 RAM? Because someone told me there are power discrepancies. If there are, upto what level could I upgrade my old Laptop? I just like to keep it longer if possible!!!!! thank you very much

It sound's like there could be a compatibility problem, maybe corrupt file's, or missing start up file's, have you tried doing a window's update, or doing a disc check on the hard drive, go to my computer right click the drive then go to propertie's, click on tool's then click check now for drive error's. if that do'es not work you may need to reformat back to the original xp os.

Yes that series will accept 4 GB of 2 x 2GB, as I am running a DV9005US with that config on Windows 7 64 bit.

SOURCE: HP Pavilion DV5000 battery charging problem

Sounds like you need to calibrate the battery, it is supposed to be done every 3 months. If it is not done, your battery will display the same symptoms are you describe. Yes, this holds true for adding a new battery also.

Here is HP's instructions on how to do it. You want to scroll down to the section called "Calibrate the notebook PC battery".

Installing Windows 8


Have you check the hardware compatibility on the Computer? There is a minimum spec requirement to run windows 8. Is it a 32 or 64 bit windows 8? The HP A720N was available for sale in Sept. 1, 2004. I doubt if it will run win 8. The Ram and Graphics are going to be a big issue. Take a look at this Min. Requirements: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/system-requirements If you can, return Win 8. Looking at your specs, I don't think you can run Win 7? http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/products/system-requirements Perhaps Vista.

Im using hp dv6700t laptop,i want to install xp on my laptop


Your laptop has a SATA hard drive and windows XP doesn't recognize those drives cause the operating system came out before those drive were made.

Follow these steps I found thru google to get windows xp sp3 to recognize your drive:

http://en.kioskea.net/forum/affich-39282-xp-can-t-recognize-hard-drive-for-os-install

You'll have to use a program to do this but people explain how to do it on that page plus the program is free.

Slowness of the Laptop


The laptop is not redundant. Go to Crucial and go through their memory scan. XP can run on 256mb ram but not well. You will get more years out of the computer with more ram installed.
