Question about HP Mini 1000 Netbook

1 Answer

Hi I have an HP 2133 mini notebook. It was working fine up until yesterday. Whenever I switch it on it gets as far as the Windows (XP) loading screen, then a blue screen flashes (too quick for me to read), then it restarts. Safe mode has the same problem. What should I do? Is there a windows file I can put on a USB for it to startup with? Thanks Grant

That is known as "The Blue Screen of Death" and is a real problem.
It is usually caused by an update problem, cut off half way through updating, or a corrupt boot ini file.
As the notenook is trying to boot up, press F8, its timing is a bit tricky and it will take several attempts, a "DOS" menu will appear. Choose "Safe Mode"
The notebook will have the ability to try and replace the faulty file. When it has loaded, Back Up your Data! then click to close it down.
See if it boots normally, if it does, you are lucky! Now is the time to run CHKDSK/F to try and iron out any hard drive problems.
Hope that helps.

Can i put a 1.6GHz motherboard on my HP mini 2133 laptop which has 1.2GHz

Are you looking to switch out the motherboard or just the processor? If you find a compatible processor you could switch them out, finding a new motherboard would be much harder though.

I have a Hp 2133 mini notebook and just installed windows xp home edition onto it. While trying to activate it, i noticed it wouldn't work without ethernet drivers, so i used my other pc to get the drivers...

Check once again the downloaded driver is the exact one for Ur NIC. Extract the downloaded driver in the other PC and copy the extracted content to the next and run the setup.exe file Make sure to Safely remove Ur pendrive.

How do I turn on my HP mini notebook wireless connection? It says that the connection is turned off, but it was working fine last night? What happened? HELP!

Look at your notebook's front edge, below the keyboard and touchpad.
To the left of the touchpad you have the on/off switch, to the right there is a wireless on/off switch, with an antenna symbol beside it.
You must have switched it off accidentally :)

HP 2133 mini-note PC webcam stopped working!! Help!! PLEASE!! :((

In your control panel you can select system properties and then device manager.
If the webcam had a yellow ! then you will need to install or update the drivers. Drivers can be found under the support section at the manufactures website.

(easy way to system properties is windows key + break key)
