HP Computers & Internet - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


If you have an older computer, the connection could be ps/2. The current standard connector is usb which is hot pluggable. Older connectors are not hot pluggable which means they are only detected during the boot process. Not a problem, all you have to do is reboot the computer and the keyboard should work. Note: usb is rectangular, ps/2 is round.

That diagnostic indicates that the hard drive is failing. If you just bought this new, I would suggest returning it for another one. If you bought it used, I'd try to get a refund.

Why HP-p 077tx Laptop Working Slow and Fan RPM Is Maximum?


Is your HP-p 077tx laptop running slowly and making a lot of noise? If so, then it could be overheating.The electrical components in the PC make heat, and fans in the system help move the air to keep the modules from getting too warm. Extra heat will be the reason for fans to run continually, damage modules, and slow the CPU's speed.All of these failures with higher heat and power will cause the program to function slower than normal. If the Fan RPM is extreme all the time, it can be the first hint that your laptop isn't working efficiently. To run your system as cool and effectively as possible, either call at the HP technical support phone number or follow up one or more of the corrective actions given below.

Update your HP laptop BIOS

Before updating the BIOS, make sure that what BIOS version is currently installed on your system. If it's outdated, then update it to the new version available on the HP's official website. For complete information to find new BIOS version and know the instructions for updating your laptop BIOS, consult with the HP technicians to get the necessary help.

If you have various applications running on your system, it functions harder and creates more heat.Decrease the heat amount by improving the laptop efficiency. Here's how to do:

    ·Stop your application from initiating while the system is started.
    ·Close the additional programs if you're not using them.
    ·Disconnect the Internet if you're not surfing the web.
    ·If your laptop gets too hot while playing games, then try to play the game at a lower resolution and with reduced graphics settings.
    Identify corrupt processes using Windows Task Manager

    The regular CPU load can be the reason of heat buildup in the computing device, forcing the fan to work regularly to keep the system at functioning temperatures. Sometimes, corrupt program or malware can cause the heat buildup. A corrupt program can consume CPU time wherever between 1% and 100%. Follow the steps to find corrupt processes that might be making CPU slower.

      1.Save your work and end up all open applications.
      2.Press Ctrl-Alt-Delete keys all at once. Click the 'Task Manager' to reveal the Windows Task Manager window.
      3.Choose the 'Processes' tab, and to specify the processes by CPU load, and then click the CPU column header.

      Keep your Laptop air vents clear and clean

      When heat builds up due to the regular use of the system, the fan spins faster to eliminate the excess warm and thus make the noise. HP laptop has vents in the bottom and sides to eradicate heat, letting air flow via the case. If the vents become blocked, the fan can't cool the components correctly. So, clean the dust if you find it out and inside the vents. While using your laptop, put it on a hard, smooth surface to keep the vent areas unblocked.
      Choose power save settings

      Try to choose the power save settings to shut your laptop off while it's not in use. Many operating systems let you change the power settings to turn off the screen while you're not regularly using your system. If you often leave your laptop in between your work, changing the power settings to power off your monitor while it's not being used can let your laptop functioning at a cooler temperature.

Sorry, I do not believe this site (or any online site) should be answering this type of question. The problem is that there is simply no way to determine if you actually own this computer.

Do not depend on it. Lists of buyer contacts (email) are viewed as a saleable commodity although they should never give away your credit card details.

There have been examples though where ALL the data of customers was hacked due to careless security. A good way to approach that is to have a separate credit card for on-line buying with a lower credit limit.
