I ever like to search the CPU's benchmark rank before buy one new computer, and I do it at http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu_list.php the they benchmark a lot of processors and rank them by they benchmark point. I found there one big difference between then CPU Points --------------- 4710HQ | 8.305 | 4510U | 3.786 It means that the quad core ...

Yes the price increase for the Dual Core is due to the amount of memory in the graphics. What the difference you will notice most using your laptop for programming is compiling large applications and or running large SQL statements as these are both processor intensive. The quad core is rated much higher then the dual core (LINK). If you are not doing ...

the video card is clearly better as the price goes up So they sacrifice some processor to give you better graphics.

"Available Memory" gradually going down is absolutely normal. Over time programs simply will use more and more memory. It happens with EVERY program. It's called a "memory leak".

Probably here, ish. The trick (lately) has been getting Apple software update to start bothering to get the HP drivers - once it's got them it seems to update them, but it's utterly stupid about going and getting them the first time for the past several months, at least. The link is to an apple knowledgebase article that includes an Hp Printer Software ...

According to the Description section on the page you linked, you should "use Apple Software Update to obtain the latest HP driver update." Have you tried that?

This question is really old now, but in case you're still having this problem - I was getting BSOD errors on my HP 2730p very frequently whenever it was not docked. After months of trying to figure it out, I found that the Location Service drivers were corrupt. Try disabling & uninstalling the Location Services. From Control Panel: Access Location ...

This simply means that the bootable USB you made is either incomplete, corrupt or unsuitable for your firmware. If you use efi or uefi firmware I would suggest you to use rufus to create the bootable usb. On boot, disable secure boot (if any) and change the boot device order to boot from USB.

HP have not done a good job at making their vista driver installer work well in Windows 7/8. But the actual drivers work fine. Install them as follows. Download and unzip http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softlib/software12/COL16807/ly-44482-3/CM1015-1017_FW_Update-20120927.exe (It's 400MB!) If you just want to install the scan/print drivers alone without all HP's ...

So I went ahead and tried re-seating the heat sinks and it didn't make a significant difference. I don't know what else I can try to get it running as cool as it did when I first bought it, or if it's even possible. It seems like there is only a single fan in the laptop, so unless I pulled out the motherboard and found a dust build up or something, I can't ...

Yes, you have found a nice one. http://www.amazon.com/DBPOWER-Seller-12-7mm-Drive-Pavilion/dp/B00FWOR16U/ It is compatible with your laptop. Your laptop model is listed in the Caddy name. So take it, no doubts. I recently installed a caddy for my second SSD. No worries.

Thickness is one difference between caddies, but the interface can also vary between PATA (older laptops) and SATA (I assume all caddies available have the internal disk requirement to be SATA). You can pull out the DVD caddy and look at the plug on the end and match up the picture of a caddy you are interested in to ensure a match. Now, the bad news, you ...

After many months of searching I finally found away. I give credit to https://sites.google.com/site/mybyways/info/hp-cyberlink .

The documented procedure is to press ESCAPE immediatly followed by F10 (see: http://www.manualslib.com/manual/608043/Hp-15.html?page=115#manual). However, pressing ESCAPE several time will bring up a small menu where you can select what to do next. This might be more comfortable.

Windows 8 and 8.1 already use PAE all the time. It doesn't even run on CPUs which don't support PAE. So you don't need to change anything. When you looking for using more than 4GB of RAM in a 32Bit Windows, try this bootloader.

Yes, get some thermal paste like artic silver 5. Some of this http://www.arcticsilver.com/arcticlean.htm Also some compressed air cans. As artic sliver is not an adhesive product do not remove heatsinks that are held on this way. You want to focus on the CPU and GPU. Once the heatsink/fan is removed from the CPU you should use cleaner to remove the old ...

remove Ultrabook from dockingstation, connect USB dongle (wireless keyboard/mouse), redock and - wow! - works! Strange design

Here you go. http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Operating-Systems-and-Software/Drivers/m-p/3540133#M181757 Looks like the 64-bit downloads also contain 32-bit versions.

For many devices, if Windows can't find the drivers, you can find them by doing the following: Open the Device Manager Right-click on the troublesome device and choose Properties Go to the Details tab Choose "Hardware IDs" from the property drop down. There you will see a lot of numbers, like this: PCI\VEN_10EC&DEV_8136&... The 4 digits after ...

Here is what HP forums (1, 2) say: if you have a Windows with 3rd party themes and uxtheme.dll patched this may cause the problem. You'll have to revert to original files. check if it is in the startup list (run msconfig and look in the Startup tab) install Microsoft .NET Framework version 3.5 SP1 you should reinstall HP Connection Manager. The latest ...

I have experience on this, and I can tell you that your computer is dead. Sorry but that's the truth, there's no (officially) known way to repair or recover a badly flashed bios image. You're stuck with these options: Send it to the manufacturer to repair. Buy a new motherboard. Sell it as parts and buy a new computer (if it's a laptop). There are very ...

Do you have Hyper-V installed? For example it may have been added if you installed the Windows Phone emulators which come with Visual Studio 2012 & 2013. If so, then there is a known conflict between Hyper-V and VirtualBox - Hardware Virtualisation support not detected if Hyper-V installed. A similar problem occurs trying to use Intel HAXM to ...

You need to enable the Windows Audio service. Run services.msc and find Windows Audio. Right click and select Properties and set Startup Type to Automatic. Hit Apply and then Start. You may need to set the correct audio device under Control Panel > Manage Audio Devices or Sound.

I have this same issue. If you right click CMD and run as administrator, type: powercfg -a. If you see it complaining about VGAPNP.SYS, then the driver you have for your video card does not support the sleep function and you will have to update your driver. I have yet to resolve this issue as I am still looking for a proper driver.

Solution In order to get the right drivers you need to identify the devices through their hardware IDs. Each device has more than one ID: the first one is the most specific, and the last one is the most generic. The most relevant bits are VEN_XXXX and DEV_YYYY, which are the vendor ID and the device ID, respectively. The IDs are hexadecimal values ...

The device seems to be a Realtek PCIE Card Reader, according to PCI database. PCI Database gives this as the download page for the drivers for that device.

It seems to me as if this computer supports 1.8" drives at the SATAII standard. You will be unable to put in any drives in of a different size (2.5", 3.5", 1.2") While the laptop supports the SATAII standard, the SATA standards are forward and backwards compatible so you can put in any SATA drive. You just will be limited to operating at the lowest ...

It's probably the 3D DriveGuard driver and one other. The HP forum reply to your post there is pretty thorough. http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Operating-Systems-and-Software/Pavilion-15-n284ca-Windows-7-x64-drivers/m-p/4024486

I use Driver identifier. Look here: http://www.driveridentifier.com/. Download that program and start it. It will scan your laptop for all drivers. It will automatically direct you to driver identifier web site with list of drivers for your machine. I didn't found it is unsafe application, I had no problems with it. Hope it helps you. Tested on ThinkPad ...
