SOURCE: Change HP Pavilion Slimline s7520n Video Card?

The on-board RadeonXpress 200M graphics is a dog. It offloads a lot of work to your cpu, and shares system memory which ties up the bus and detracts from the memory available to the OS.

The s7520 suffers from thermal problems due to it's size and poor ventilation. It also has a very limted power supply. Therefore, your choices are also limited. If you could score Radeon X600 or X1300 with 128MB for cheap somewhere it would be a worthwhile upgrade. It does need to be PCI (not PCI-E) and half-height (low profile).

SOURCE: My HP Pavilion a6300f powers up but no signal to the monitor

It could be the motherboard, try resetting the the bios first by either taking the lithium cmos battery out and then replacing after 30 secs or finding the the cmos jumber and unshort it for 30 secs, and reboot the mechine.

If the same and no monitor responce then the onboard graphic electronics may have failed, the motherboard does have a AGP expansion slot which you may want to test with a graphics card to see if that will work.

If you find that you do have to replace the motherboard, try to find one that uses the same processor and memory that you already have, that way you will keep expence down to a minimal.

Replacing the motherboard will mean you will have to contact microsoft to give you the installation codes for the operating system to work with the new motherboard, when you boot for the first time with the new motherboard fitted you will have to phone the number on the screen to reregister the system just follow the instructions, it is quite self explanetry.

Once all booted up and drivers installed the computer should run as normal, as for the hp recovery disks it should still work as all the information on the disk is on the harddrive any way, the only thing you would need to do is keep the motherboard installation disk with all the drivers on.
hope this helps.

How do I remove the harddrive from the HP Slimline S3100n?


Shut down the power to your HP Slimline computer.

Remove any memory cards or other devices from the desktop.

Disconnect the power cord and peripheral devices from the computer.


Lay the computer flat on your work surface.

Remove the three screws on the rear of the computer cover with a Phillips screwdriver.


Slide the cover toward the back of the computer then lift it off the tower.

Set the cover aside.

Raise the wire latch in front of the hard drive mounting area.


Pull the cables straight out of the connections to disconnect them from the hard drive. Unscrew the retaining screw in the side of the mounting tray with a Phillips screwdriver.


Grab the tab on the hard drive tray and slide it back out of the mounting area. Remove the screws that secure the hard drive to the tray with a Phillips screwdriver.


There are four screws, one on each corner.

Slide the hard drive out of the tray.

Bootmgr missing on hp pavilion slimline s5503w


This document pertains to HP and Compaq desktop PCs that came with Windows 7.The following error opens when attempting to start the PC:BOOTMGR is missingPress CTRL+ALT+DEL to restart the PCIf you recently installed an additional hard drive, turn off the computer and remove the drive before using the following steps:
  1. Open HP System Recovery:caution.pngCAUTION:Do not perform a system recovery! Stop at the first recovery screen.
    • Press the F11 key repeatedly while the computer is starting.
    • If you have a recovery disc, turn on the PC and insert the first recovery disc into the drive. Use the disc to enter the system recovery.
  2. Select Microsoft Startup Repair tool and wait for repair to find and fix errors. When finished, restart the computer; even if the startup repair tool finds errors but cannot fix them.
  3. If the error message persists, open the recovery manager screen as was done in step 1.
  4. At the recovery manager screen, press ALT + D.
  5. Enter the following text at the command prompt: bootrec /rebuildbcd
  6. If bootrec displays "Add installation to boot list?", press y .After bootrec completes successfully, the computer displays "The operation completed successfully".
  7. To close the command prompt, enter the following text: exit
  8. At the Recovery Manager screen, select Microsoft Startup Repair tool (again) and wait for startup repair to find and fix errors. When finished, restart the computer.
  9. The error should no longer open. If it does, perform a system recovery, making sure to backup important files.
If you removed a hard drive before using these steps, replace the drive. If the error occurs again, make sure the additional hard drive is not set as an active drive. Only the main bootable drive should be set as active.

Can I use any SATA hard drive to replace the HP Hewlett Packard Pavilion Slimline S3300F Desktop SATA? Thank you Albert


Hello,
Yes, in fact you will most likely be able to get an upgrade as most HPs have a 5400 RPM hard drive and you can find great 7200rpm SATA hard drives.

There are also 10000rpm drives available but at this point they aren't worth the price in my professional opinion.

Good luck.

You can try to do a Power drain of the system ie disconnect all the cables from the pc and press and hold the power button of the tower for 30 to 40 sec. than reconnect only the keyboard the mouse and the monitor and turn it on. try to enter the BIOS page ( keep on tabbing the F10 key to enter BIOS is Windows Vista during the start up and F1 in Windows XP) and from their you can run a Smart test on the Hard drive. You can also try to boot the Pc to the safe mode and check whether the windows loads or not. From the Advanced boot option try to do a Start up repair.

Hp pavilion dv5000 hard drive problems


It is rare that you get notice of impending harddrive failure so heed the warning now. If it were me, I would back up all files to an external drive, and better yet, use a program such as Norton Ghost or Acronis and make a drive image. That way you can blow the image back on a new drve and be up and running right away. The alternative is to back up docs, pics, etc and reload every program including operating system, which is very time consuming.

My HP Slimline Desktop s3120n turns on and as soon as goes on it turns itself off.


it seems your computer needs cleaning and servicing, my advice is to open your pc and use dust cleaner,you can buy a can from any computer outlet, spray all the dust out also all fans,the heat sink on the CPU,make sure also the fan that is connected via the CPU,I believe dust has accumulated between the fan and the CPU,by this the cpu cannot read the from the hard drive all because of so many dust that has accumulate between the cpu, it hard to read the data from hard drive and CPU.
hope this work for you.
