Try to run the SYSTEM RESTORE. Go to START MENU>ACCESSORIES>SYSTEM TOOLS>SYSTEM RESTORE and choose the previous date your video player works fine and it will back to orginal setting. If not working, try other restore dates.

If not, try to uninstall and reinstall the video player software to restore the file or corrupted codec.

Please post comment for more help

    Open any internet websites and then go to TOOLS and then go to manage adds on and disable the accelerator adds on or all adds on.

    If not, just install new internet explorer like internet explorer 8 to change the settings.

Hp pavillion dv6-2155dx keeps buffering and won't play videos correctly

Are you connecting wireless or wired connection. Have you updated your flash player? Which browser are you using? Do you keep your computer cleaned up from internet browsing? If your browser is up to date and so it your flash player then more than likely it could be the internet connection. If you are running it wireless try plugging it in to the router with a cable and check it. Another thing would be to check for a virus.

Hp pavillion dv6227 pc notebook black screen during start up?

Start taking your laptop apart piece by piece and test it after each removed component:
1. Remove the hard drive and test the laptop.
2. Remove the DVD drive and test the laptop.
3. Remove the wireless card and test the laptop.
4. Unplug the display panel from the motherboard/video card and test the laptop.
Continue taking it apart until you have only three major components connected: motherboard (with video card), processor, and memory. If you still experience the same problem, most likely it's bad motherboard.
By the way, before you start, try reconnecting the memory module. If you have two modules installed, try removing them one by one and test the laptop with each one separately.

HP Pavillion dv9000 won't turn on.

Thermal Damage..

You first need to check the Fan and Heatsink Assembly.. Clean the heatsink Fins and Fanblades..

Then .. The Graphics Chip will need to be "ReFlowed".. Using Either Infrared or a Heat Gun...

Your Issue Is The Nvidia Chip... It Makes it's connection to the motherboard using solder balls on the underside of the chip...(it's located right next to the CPU).. Due to Thermal Breakdown - the Chip Can Lose Connection to Certain Areas of the ball grid array... Performing A Chip Reflow Heats the chip and reconnects the faulty areas.. Thus stopping the shutdown issues and fixing your video..

My laptop turns itself of after 8 minutes - every time i turn my laptop on it lasts for about 8 minutes then turns itself off automatically how do i stop this? My HP laptop keeps shutting itself off after...

Sounds like something to do with a power saving feature either from HP itself or from Windows. It could also be that for some reason your computer is overheating, which it than shuts itself off to protect the processor. I would try playing with your power saving features, and cleaning out the fans.

Unable to start laptop


I understand the urgency and also the importance of data stored in the laptop.

As the laptop is unable to start in normal mode let us try in safe mode.

Follow the steps below:

1. Turn the laptop off completely.
2. Press the power on button to turn it on and at the same time simultaneously keep tapping ' F8 ' key on key pad until you see a advanced boot options screen.
3. Select 'safe mode' and hit enter.

Thank you.
