Question about HP TouchSmart IQ770 PC Desktop

Open Question

Mine is IQ780A which I bought in April 2008. The computer was down about 2 weeks ago. I called HP and was informed this model has stopped manufactured and there was no parts left if I really do need a repairing. I took the computer to some repairing stores yesterday and was told that none of them has the parts that can repaired my computer except HP itself. Can you please tell me where can I get the parts for this model? It seems so unreasonable when I paid such a high price for a computer to work only for 2 and a half years. Thanks very much for your help. Jenny Leung

SOURCE: My hp desktop computer will not turn on

Most likely the power supply has failed. This is the device that the cord plugs into in the back of the computer. They can be purchased for around $20 - $50 depending on where you go. Then you just remove the four screws holding it in, remove all the internal plugins and reconnect the new power supply. Oh and please take a moment to rate this solution as fixya. Thanks! :c)

SOURCE: Hp IQ780A has a2discs stuck in the dvd drive

Woah! You don't want to hear this but forcing a second disc into the drive has probably destroyed the drive read head. They are pretty tough and it might be able to survive but you will most certainly have to dismantle the drive to remove the DVD and not create any more damage. Kind of like scraping someone elses car in a parking lot. More damage is done when you try to back off of the other car than the initial hit. (not like that's ever happened to me :) )

SOURCE: no input signal go to power save

Well, you have one of the Slimline models, and there isn't any room for a standard sized Video Card, as well as the power supply probably couldn't handle a standard video card.

The motherboard for this computer has 2 expansion slots. The expansion slot for the graphics card is PCI Express.
Here's a link to the motherboards specifications: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&cc=us&docname=c00910076&dlc=en

You will need a Low Profile Video Card. Here's a listing of some low profile cards from this US online ordering website, newegg.com (they are a pretty good place) http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&DEPA=0&Order=BESTMATCH&Description=low+profile+video+card. This is probably what you need, and I was expecting a much more expensive price tag on one of these cards considering they are harder to find.

What do you use your computer for? Work, or do you play video games? If you play higher graphic programs, get one of the 256MB cards for sure. You may want to go with 256 anyways, but if you only use the computer for internet and work/school, 128MB is sufficient.

SOURCE: HP Slimline desktop shuts down on it own without warning

you need to take off the fan to the cpu and blow out all the dust and dirt. removing the cover for better cooling is actually a bad thing to do.... with the cover on the fans will move air thru the computer to cool it... with no cover the air does not circulate for best cooling.

SOURCE: Computer frequently shuts down unexpectedly/ fans very noisy

You might have a cooling problem due to a fan malfunction. It is not clear whether it's the power supply fan or the CPU fan; in the latter case you might also have a thermal coupling problem. The symptoms you describe certainly seem to point to such.

My advice would be to replace the fan (or the whole power supply; you might also want to purchase a "Silent Power" unit for quieter computing). If it's the CPU fan and you are comfortable with, or know anyone comfortable with a bit of PC servicing, you might want to also unmount the heat sink from the CPU and replace the thermal paste between CPU and heatsink. Clean the heat dissipator (the black metal grille over the heatsink) with hot water and a bit of soap and dry thoroughly, or wipe it energically with a dust brush, before mounting the new fan on it.

I bought HP Pavilion dv5 6 months ago and fan not working


Your cooling fan sounds to have went out,causing it to overheat and shut down.It also could be something in the fan stopping it from turning.Try cleaning it or blowing it out with it off.But it mostly sounds to have went out.

My 6 month old Subaru Tribeca won't start


You wouldn't expect these things to happen in a brand new car! But sometimes its good for the manufacturer as they can modify parts and launch field fix programs or recalls. For you particular case I think you should ask the dealer the results of the scannings and post it here so that we can use the information you provide us to better our services and knowledge.
Thank you.

The solution appears to be common for all recent Emerson SmartSet(tm) radios (BTW it's not the clock fault, it's the law).

Remarkably Emerson foresaw this, so here we go.

Short version (may require three hands :-) )

DST start:
Press and hold MONTH/DATE and ALARM 1 buttons for at least 3 seconds until the display changes to something like "4 F" (Fourth month, First week) alternating with something like "4. 1" (April 1st, for 2007) or "4. 6" (April 6th, for 2008). While holding down the MONTH/DATE and ALARM 1 buttons, now press the DOWN or "-" Set button (3 times) until "3F2" shows (Third month, second week) alternating with something like "3.11) (March 11th, for 2007) or "3. 9" (March 9th, for 2008). Let go of all buttons and we are now half done.

DST end:
Press and hold MONTH/DATE and ALARM 2 buttons for at least 3 seconds until the display changes to something like "10 L" (Tenth month, Last week) alternating with something like "10.28" (October 28th, for 2007) or "10.26" (October 26th, for 2008). While holding down the MONTH/DATE and ALARM 2 buttons, now press the UP or "+" Set button (1 time) until "11 F" shows (Eleventh month, first week) alternating with something like "11. 4" (November 4th, for 2007) or "11. 2" (November 2nd, for 2008). Let go of all buttons and we are now done.


This should remain until either the lithium battery fails or Congress undoes its work.


BTW the Emerson addendum has a history error. The time change in the first Sunday in April and the last Sunday in October did not start in 1966, but in 1987. Before that starting in 1966 the standard was set at the last Sunday in April and the last Sunday in October. Except for 1974, when it was January 6th, 1974 (DST start) and October 27th, 1974 (DST end) and in 1975 when it was February 23rd, 1975 (DST start) and October 26th, 1975 (DST end). Before 1966, state and local governments had many different rules. Source: http://webexhibits.org/daylightsaving/e.html
