    Thank you for your response. I changed the resolution, and then the 50% update icon disappeared. I will do as you suggest the next time the update notice appears. J.

    Thank you for trying. The HP Update icon is back, with only 50% of it showing so I cannot say "yes" I would like to have the update installed. I tried the change of screen resolution, the remedy offered earlier, but it did not work. Thank you. Joan

Try changing the screen resolution.
Right click in the middle of your screen and select Properties from the menu that pops up. Then click the Settings tab at the top and move the Screen resolution slider across. Click Apply and OK to exit.

Hp Pavilion 763n won't startup light on fan on cpu not running


The most common issue is a portion of the power supply has gone bad (power supplies provide +5, +12, -5, and -12 vdc). Otherwise, the motherboard may need replacing. Try finding a spare power supply from a friend and hook it up to see if everything runs fine before purchasing one (about $40-50). If the power supply doesn't fix it, it could be the CPU (although I believe the CPU fan would still run) or any portion of the motherboard.

When I turn on my PC, it starts normally. After


Screen Goes Black After Splash Screen

This sounds like a driver may have been updated, changed or has become corrupt, either after a bad update or virus/malware attack. Reboot the computer in safe mode with networking…when the computer reboots, open the control panel > device manager (in XP the device manager is in the system folder) > scroll to the display adapter. Right click on the adapter and roll-back the driver. Click yes and apply if necessary. Reboot the computer, it should reboot and display with no issue. It may ask (if you are automatically connected to the internet) if it can search windows update for a fresh driver….since you know what to do in case of a failed update, click yes and get a fresh driver. I would then do a complete virus and anti-malware scan to make sure the system is clean.

HP Compaq Presario SR2150NX PC New Memory not recognized


Remove the Old memory and see if the system reconizes it, if yes the old is not compatable together.
If no the new memory is not compatable with your system.

Savedump.exe error


Hi there
Savedump.exe is located in the folder C:\Windows\System32. The file is a Windows core system file. The program has no visible window. savedump.exe is a Microsoft signed file. Therefore the technical security rating is 4% dangerous.
Some malware camouflage themselves as savedump.exe, particularly if they are located in c:\windows or c:\windows\system32 folder. Thus check the savedump.exe process on your pc whether it is pest. I recommend Security Task Manager for verifying your computer's security.

If you want to get the full potential of 64bit processor then you will have install XP X64 and yes i'm sure SP3 will install.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

Desktop hp Product Number P6402A


Step 1: Find the current BIOS version number
  1. Turn ON your pc. When the first screen appears, press F1 to enter the BIOS Setup. On certain Compaq Presario PCs (prior to 2002) press the F10 key at the logo screen to enter setup.
  2. The BIOS revision number is listed on the Main menu. Write down the current BIOS version that is listed.
  3. To exit the BIOS setup screen, press F10 , select Yes , and then press the Enter key.

Step 2: Check the Drivers and Downloads page for BIOS or ROM updates

  1. Go to http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareRedirector?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=67009&docname=c00007682 enter the model of the PC (for example, Presario 5002US or Pavilion a518d), and click the download button.
  2. Click the link for the PC Operating System (like Windows XP).
  3. Try to find the BIOS update listed under the heading, BIOS , BIOS- System , or RomPaq.
    NOTE: The term "Rompaq" refers to BIOS updates for Compaq Presario PCs prior to 2002.
  • If a BIOS update is not listed, HP does not have a BIOS update posted for your PC at this time.
  • If there are several BIOS updates available for different motherboard names, you need to find out what motherboard is installed in your PC. This can be done by turning off the power to the PC, removing the side panel, and reading the name that is printed on the motherboard. The name of your motherboard should match or be similar to the name of the download link.
  • If a BIOS update is listed, proceed to the next step to download and install the BIOS update.
Step 3: Download and install the BIOS update

  1. Click the download link. The instructions for downloading and installing BIOS updates vary.
  • For most PCs with Windows XP, download the file, open it and follow the on-screen instructions.
  • For many PCs before Windows XP, save the downloaded file to the hard drive, insert a formatted disk, open the downloaded file to copy the BIOS files to the disk, and then restart the computer with the disk still in the drive.
  • The instructions on the download page may be different so carefully read and follow the instructions on the download page and in the installation setup screens.
  1. If a 251 or CMOS Checksum error occurs after installing the BIOS update, perform the following steps:
  2. Restart the PC and enter the BIOS screen by pressing the F1 or F10 key at the first screen.
  3. Press the F5 key to load the default BIOS configuration.
  4. Select YES by using the arrow keys, and then press Enter .
  5. Press the F10 key to save the settings and exit.
  6. Select YES by using the arrow keys, and then press Enter .
    When the BIOS update is complete, the new BIOS revision number is updated on the Main BIOS screen.
Please rate this solution. Thank you.

HP TC4200 tablet pc. Screen keeps going dark, can JUST make out characters. Happens more frequently on AC power, lesson battery. Resolved by closing and reopening screen hinge. When connected to external...


Do what you can to rule out the tablet's firmware and power-management software being dotty (by refreshing those installations.)  Just in case, put an order for a replacement backlight in (from HP, who can at least let you on to the part number, or elsewhere...) and have a flatscreen handy to use as a spare display if the internal one gives out on you!

Oh!  And file questions like this in a non-general category so you can get answers sensible to HP tablet PCs!
