Question about ASI COMPAL DL71 15.4 WXGA 915GM SONOMA CHIPSET INTEGRATED VGA GMA900 Motherboard

1 Answer

Compal DL71 ... security issue?

Hi, I'm a newbie here. But not on comps. However, I am new to this Compal. I bought a deliquent account storage unit at auction. This comp was in it. However, it will not power on at all. On the left side, at the back, there is a small orifice with an emblem of a lock on it. It's shaped similar to a bird in flight, but vertically. Is this a device to stop from powering up the comp unless there is a key inserted? ... if so, is there a quick workaround? ... Seems to be a good comp and I've about had it with this ancient satellite i'm on now. Any help or suggestions are welcome.

Nope, that is for a Kensington lock like these http://us.kensington.com/html/1434.html . Re: power - try it with the battery out - test the adapter to see if it is actually providing power (get a $10 multi-meter to test - should be 19v DC). AC adapters are available all over the web as are batteries.

What type of video card may I order to go in this unit


hi, im new with the whole computer knowledge but i have done some research seeing as i have this comp as well. just like me your needing to upgrade the comp to be more sufficient and up to par with todays upgrades seeing as this comp is old and prolly got it at Best Buy. but if your going to do some heavy media, gaming etc. i suggest getting a new comp that is up to date with todays changes. only reason why is the video card you require for this comp is a PCI which i have read is the lowest quality and probably soon to be obsolete that many programs dont support anymore. dont get me wrong you can still buy them, but dont expect high quality performance. remember you need a PCI not PCI Express (PCIE) to fit the slot that your motherboard has. ive done alot of searches for PCI video cards, i suggest just to google it or check newegg.com. im still actually looking around myself. im sure if you have this comp your also looking for an inexpensive part. anyways i hope this helped.

my upgrades are:
500 hard drive
60 slave
2g memory

Bought a verizon hd 6200 dvr on e-bay


You can't because these units are not owned by the customers, they belong to Verizon, and the customers are renting the units. They are not to be sold, they are to be returned. The box is probably still under the customer (DELIQUENT acct) and he never returned it and he sold it on ebay to get some money to pay his deliquent bill....Sorry!

The wondows gets shutdown when I try to connect my mobile via Lg PC suit. My model is Lg KP 500


I bought my cookie the other day and saw the same problem, each time you select pc suite on the phone the comp crashes, instead choose "music sync" or "mass storage" the later means you dont have to have the pc suite software running on the comp you can drop and drag in windows just like its a usb flash drive, when ur ph is connected you'll see a new drive appear in "my computer" (2 drives if you have a micro sd card inserted). Now you can drag and drop your files into these folders, I had probs with the software installation ended up downloading drivers of net one for music sync (which uses pc suite software) another for mass storage which'll end up being the only one I connect with, It looks to me like a software fault which makes the comp crash when you select pc suite. hope this gets you up and running, good luck :)

Cannot install hp software into brand new comp!!!!!!!


If you are using VIsta, you should get a UAC prompt that in order to elevate your privileges to install software and drivers. You need to click on Continue or, if it is asking for a username and password, you need to enter a username and password for an account on the computer that has administrative privileges.
