Question about HP Pavilion tx1000z Notebook

1 Answer

Pen Calibration I cannot find any options on my computer to calibrate the pen. It reads about a half inch off of where I want it, and nowhere is there a tool to fix it (at least I can't find it). I am not the most computer literate though. Can anyone help?

Pen cavity


If you still have the other half of the pen, try applying a small amount of super glue to the broken end and push it back into the slot. Let it sit for 10 minutes (to be sure it dried) and extract accordingly.

How to fransfer data from laptop to pendrive


First turn on your computer.

Once your computer and operating system are up and running, then plug the USB pen drive into an empty USB slot on your laptop.

You may have to wait a few moments while your computer detects this device and automatically installs the appropriate drivers for it, which should take no more than 30 seconds or so.

Now just click on the MY COMPUTER icon on your desktop or navigate there manually.

Look in the section titled DEVICES WITH REMOVABLE STORAGE.

You should see your USB removable flash drive listed somewhere in that section. Just double click on its icon to open it up.

Now that the USB pen drive folder is open, you can just COPY and PASTE, or DRAG and DROP any document or file from your computer into that USB pen drive folder the same way you would transfer files to any other folder on your computer.

To copy files, just RIGHT mouse click on the file you want to copy, then select COPY from the drop down menu.

Then just RIGHT mouse click anywhere in the USB pen drive folder and select the PASTE option from the drop down menu.


Once all your files are copied, just close the USB pen drive folder.

Then click on the SAFELY REMOVE HARDWARE icon in the lower right hand corner of your taskbar at the bottom of the screen. Select the USB removable pen drive option and then wait for it to say that it is now safe to remove the USB pen drive.

Then just remove your USB pen drive by pulling it straight out of the computer's USB slot.

I hope that was helpful.

Good luck and take care.

Joe.

Hp pavillon tx1000 12.1 inch touch screen cursor stays at bottom left hand conrner


Clean the screen with a clean soft cotton cloth is the step #1

Step 2:
SEE FULL instruction HERE

Calibrate the touch screen
The command buttons and fields are displayed on the screen image at specific pixel points. To initiate a response, the touch screen interface needs to recognize exactly where a fingertip or pen touches the screen relative to the pixel position of the display. Each user has a slightly different hand-eye coordination response. Calibrating the touch screen allows the interface to compensate between where the program is expecting a touch and where the touch actually occurs. To calibrate the touch screen, place the tablet notebook in the desired orientation and do the following actions.
  1. Click or tap Start > Control Panel > Tablet PC Settings to open the Table PC Settings window.
  2. On the General tab, select the option to display the menus in either the Right-handed or Left-handed position.
  3. On the General tab, select the desired screen orientation from the drop-down menu, and click or tap Calibrate . Follow the instruction to touch the screen at the specified points. Repeat this calibration action for all four of the screen orientations, then click or tap Apply .
  4. On the Handwriting Recognition tab, select the Use the handwriting personalization option.
  5. At a later time, you can return to review the Go to Pen and Input Devices and Go to Input Panel Settings options to make using the touch screen to control programs and input text easier and more accurate.




Compare your version of the firmware to the latest one at HP offical site HERE

Always get the latest firmware to avoid problem.

Always keep the screen clean!

Armada E500 notebook Power button not responding.


Unless you took the batteries to a service center, I am dubious about your ability to confirm the main battery is holding a charge. The average lifespan of these kinds of batteries range between 3-5 years and is likely at the end of its lifespan. This would explain the diminishing performance over the last year if there were significant power or power circuit issues, they would likely be observed on AC power as well. This model of laptop requires the battery calibration utility be run in order for the laptop use the battery. In fact, the battery can show a full charge and still not function if the utility and battery have not been properly configured.. . . instructions on HOW TO do this below. If this doesn't FixYa then the battery will need to be replaced (links to replacement sources) www.BatteriesOvernight.com/HP-Batteries,----- OR --- www.new-laptop-battery.com/Compaq/?Compaq-Armada-E500-battery.htm. You will still have to run the configuration utility when you receive your new battery.
Link to Armada e500 manuals:http://bizsupport2.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c01124216/c01124216.pdf
How to run config utility: Standby and hibernation must be disabled for the battery to discharge completely and shut off. To use the Battery Calibration utility, first identify whether the battery requires calibration by launching the Power Management applet as described above. On the Battery Calibration tab, all installed batteries will be displayed in the primary list box. Next to each battery name will be an indication of whether calibration is required for that battery. If calibration is necessary, the phrase “Needs Calibration” will be displayed. Select the battery to be calibrated, and click the Start Calibration button. During calibration, the utility will display an icon on the Windows System Tray to indicate that calibration is in progress. Each phase of calibration (charging or discharging) will also be displayed. Calibration is complete when the icon is no longer displayed in the System Tray. Battery calibration requires several hours for completion. If you choose to continue using the computer during the calibration process, it must be connected to AC power. The calibration process must be allowed to finish without interruption. Performing any of the following actions will prematurely terminate calibration:  Clicking the Stop Calibrating button in the Compaq Power tab.  Unplugging AC power from the computer.  Unplugging the calibrating battery. (This action may result in data loss if a second battery is not installed.)  Undocking the computer.  Pressing the power or standby button.  Powering down or suspending the machine by using the Windows menu. IMPORTANT: If the calibration process is interrupted, it cannot be resumed. You must restart the computer and start the process again.
CALIBRATING WITHOUT THE UTILITY To calibrate a battery on computers without the battery calibration utility, complete the following steps: 1. Remove the second battery, if present, so that only the battery needing calibration remains in the computer. 2. Dock the computer or connect the computer to AC power. 3. Turn on the computer. 4. Check the current battery capacity level by positioning the cursor over the battery icon in the system tray. 5. Allow the battery to charge to 100%. You may use the computer, but the recharging process will require more time. 6. Set the system to “drain” mode on the battery conservation settings by pressing Fn+F7, or select Start > Settings > Control Panel > Power (or Compaq Power in Windows NT). 7. Undock the computer or disconnect the computer from AC power. 8. Restart the computer in MS-DOS mode by clicking Start > Shut Down > Restart the Computer in MS-DOS Mode > OK. 9. Allow the computer to discharge until it shuts off. 10. Dock the computer or reconnect AC power. 11. Allow the computer to charge again to 100% as in Step 5.

My pen drive is not working properly


Only option you have is to format your pen drive. If U already formatted ur pen drive even though its not working than try with different computer. If U face a same issue than with different computer too than Ur pen drive is corrupted. Format it. that will help U.

Calibration of touch Screen is off - Can't re-calibrate.


I had the same problem, also on a HP Pavilion tx1000.
I solved it by using the driveres from eeti.
Now the pen works great and I'm a happy camper. :)
