Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook

2 Answers

Inexpensive computer for video rendering. (laptops have a non removable GPU chip so...)

I am very confused I think the dv6000z has video card and does not! oops. (yes some do , like HP Elitebooks "8540w") so what is good system for doing video rendering.? We all know that the least expensive is too slow. So what is the best bang for the buck on this job. video rendering. (sorry forgot to tell what editor I am using)nor of 4k is a goal.

    help me please how to switch graphics nvidia dedicated VRAM 2gb ddr3 from intel HD 3000

  • Anonymous Dec 26, 2018

    Lots of hyjackers are asking now.
    there is the 2019 answer.
    first off there is no inexpensive rendering.
    nor if editing 4k huge videos/ what?

    nor is there GPU CARD in any DV. (oops)
    and the DV is one of the worst, laptops made.
    other maker did this too, for same bad chips from Nvidia.

    1: CCLF lamps are all mostly dead.blackscreen.
    2: DV had those nasty bad, GPU-BGA lead free solder ball failures, never buy a DV ok?

    CCLF test if screen goes hard dead black.

    uquote question.

    it does NOT work like you think it does.
    (ask on the real forum you;re not the first to ask , for sure)

    ask on forum there.
    this GPU trick is to save battery power. only.
    2d uses vastly less power.

    2d/3d switch hack IDK,but only HP has a solution if at all and is deeply controlled by BIOS firmware so not and easy fix.(nor hack)
    ask forum.

When it comes to graphics, your cpu speed and ability is just as important as your video card. Another factor is system ram; you need at least 4 gb. With your processor being so old, and your system so limited in ram, it seems to me you should put your money towards a good gaming laptop with Intel i7 and a dedicated memory graphics card. The 17-inch size helps everything run cooler, and is sometimes relatively less expensive as well, what with consumers preferring the smaller screens. A large screen is better for video editing, too.

    google video rendering forum.
    like this.

    in the DV real, wow.has no CARD. at all.
    you planning to unsolder this? GBA ball grid array chip. GPU? really?

  • Kami Jan 19, 2019

    A desktop would do it better, of course. (For anybody reading this who might have this question.) Being the vast majority of systems within a category tend to have the same components, of the same make, it is limiting to recommend only a few. Some are of superior construction, though, not cheap plastic. I would suggest putting the features you want in search and simply comparing prices. September, April, and May are said to be good months for pc deals.

    worse yet all DV PCs DVnnnnn are junk
    bad GPU
    with CCFL that are all dead now or very soon;.
    buy 2010 or newer desktop

    "they tend to have same components" above is so wrong, wow.
    do all pcs right now have z270 based systems.
    not by an intergalactic light year.

  • Anonymous Jan 23, 2019

    buy a desktop and run any screen you like any size.
    2010 or newer all parts. ok?
    add memory as you want, more better,and always your choice;
    I recommend building a Z260prime ASUS based PC.
    then adding HDD and SSD that fits your needs.
    and runs w10-64 bit as the above does.
    and has a future. (upgrades aplenty possible)
    unlike ANY near useless laptops in this domain of video rendering.
    doing 4K unstated,? no examples of work now
    or in future stated, nor video editor stated either nor version.

  • Anonymous Jan 23, 2019

    OP, buy a used HP z600 an build on this.
    or dell optiplex 990. up. laptops are
    what I call LIMPtops. like wet rag, weak and easy to damage. (so newones are vast but I bet $1500 is out of your purse range)

    or the
    The dell 3040-mT
    in the large case,for lots of HDD for huge video files to work.

  • Anonymous Jan 23, 2019

    learn this too.
    with the right GPU card,like my NvidiaGTX1050
    and using modern video rendering software!
    i uses, the GPU chip for way faster math.
    it uses the GPU as sub processor, fast,not just graphics to screen, ok?
    and rendering times doing so are super fast.
    warning the free APP this magic is turned OFF.

    A ssd or super fast 5 drive SAS raid array also makes it faster. I have hdd raid here that runs at same speed as my 1 Crucial SSD,but not my M.2.
    my m.2 sdd cleans everyone's clock.
    Samsungs best. (ask can show and tell.)

    but the OP never defined the word Inexpensive
    so has zero meaning at all.

    just like saying a cheap fast car
    $peed costs, how Fa$t can you afford?
    IDK say so.

  • Anonymous Jan 23, 2019

    or say what can i get for 1G note.

  • Anonymous Jan 23, 2019

    this inexpensive ?

  • Anonymous Jan 25, 2019

    or less. unstated.

  • Anonymous Feb 07, 2019

    what is good.? mean? we don't know.
    renders in under a week? mean good.
    there is no best or good.
    only what you expect matters, only that.
    no exceptions stated,
    no video run times 1min, 1 day long.,?
    no format stated,
    no resolution stated, 4k? 1080P>?

    buy a used gaming desktop, and work from there,
    Desktops have the best upgrade potentials.

    you can not upgrade the GPU, it is BGA solderball soldered to the mobo for ever.

  • Anonymous Jan 23, 2019

    the GPU is not on a card in any DVnnnnn PC laptop, ok?
    so popping in a ATI is not going to happen.
