The easiest way to determine if the 2420 module is installed is to open the mobile broadband module trapdoor on the underside of the notebook. This is the small door near the battery bay, you should see a wireless icon on the door with an arrow pointing to the single screw that secures the trapdoor. If there is no 3G module installed the slot will be empty and you will find two antenna connectors taped down. There is an upgrade kit available for EliteBooks if you are interested in adding this feature.

Please note, there is a larger access panel with both a wireless and memory icon (thisis the wifi card.)

How to use SIM in HP elitebook 8440?

That's for Ray Gallant who thinks there's no sim card slot in a lapotp :) . It is a 3g modem build in .

About your question you will need to download drivers from
HP EliteBook 8440p Notebook PC

here for the modem . You will need to select your operation system then go to Software - Solutions > and download HP Connection Manager . If it still does not work you may try to download some of the Driver - Network drivers but i'm not sure which one will work.

HP 2530p EliteBook - touchpad stopped working. Scrolling works except touch scrolling on right side of pad) and right button, but that's all. Wireless mouse works fine.

To access Mouse Properties, select Start - Control Panel - Hardware and Sound -Mouse.

Use Mouse Properties in Windows to customize settings for pointing devices, such as button configuration, click speed, and pointer options.

HP Elitebook 2530p switches on but no display

Just a quick one or two at the moment. Have to locate the problem then figure the fix sooooo..

1. Please refer to the photo: Note the 'hands', one at the top right and the other at the bottom right of the screen. With the power on and the computer in the normal ready to use mode....

What I suggest you do is hold the bottom right corner firmly, keeping it relatively immovable while, at the same time, GENTLY, and NOT completely, SLOWLY start bringing the top left corner down toward the bottom right corner, actually moving the top barely an eighth of an inch, flexing just a tiny bit...

If the display flickers then, hopefully, it is a loose display cable, usually a flat one that lies under the keyboard and need only be adjusted. a tedious but very inexpensive solution.

Another quick, albeit unlikely fault to check is your battery. I know, I know, it's so obvious but I have to ask: Have you tried using the computer from a DIFFERENT wall outlet, better still, at a buds house?

Let's get these two out of the way before moving on? Let me know! I'll look into recalls, frequent problems, etc....

HP Elitebook 2530p power lights stays on after

are you switching off, or just closing the lid? On most laptops, closing the lid just hibernates and constantly uses power, it can be changed in the control panel power options.
