Got nothing?, (means PC is dead or just key buttons dead)
tell what works and not, we can not watch you or it. please
Series:
DV4000 is a series of LT. it has a full & real model stated on its service tag, only THAT works,

so how'd it get w8? there? (bought FROM MS or HP?????)

why mess with BIOS> ? if this fails it bricks the PC.
(if you must flash always flash using the usb stick way. (freedos)
not only that using the wrong model to flash, HP sold this series with AMD and Intel processors. oops......
next time before doing such big thing ask, hp first?
both model and p/n matter, when doing updates or buying parts.
big time!



quick touch - tag1-nvn5fnzys0y3nze0x40aj1l2-5-0.jpg
learn that HP page, the exact model and OS must be selected
or it shows you the WRONG BIOS and wrong driver and wrong HP APPS. for a fact.

here is the series page, dangerous, imo

https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/hp-pavilion-dv4-4000-entertainment-notebook-pc-series/5082208


use the real page by using real models #

BIOS101
pick any LT. even yours.
the PC can have 6 different network chips used in the long production run.. and GPU and other features, very different.
in your case even the CPU vastly different. amd/intel
so giving that fact, picking the right BIOS binary can be very hard.

best of all why not ask HP before even walking the path.

SOURCE: wrong bios

The # 443694-001 refers to the cd set. You need to know which DV9000 you have. On this link you will see all the DV9000 models.:
http://h20180.www2.hp.com/apps/Lookup?h_lang=en&h_cc=us&cc=us&h_page=hpcom&lang=en&h_client=S-A-R163-1&h_pagetype=s-002&h_query=DV9000+443694-001&submit.x=6&submit.y=4

You will need to use a friend's computer for the following.

Once you find the correct firmware, You can make a bootable CD by using Nero or Roxio burning software,these are the most common on computers nowaday.Once you make the bootable CD, you will have to set your laptop to boot from the CDROM. Then boot the CD you made and run the firmware update.
I don't believe you would be able to get a USB flash drive to boot in this condition.
Good Luck

How to unlock the touch pad


There should be a touchpad on/off button on the top row of lights above your keyboard. It is a square icon, tbh it looks like a small touchpad. If this doesn't work there may be a problem with a driver. In which case go here - http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&product=3355636&
then choose your operating system. First try the quick launch buttons driver, then try the synaptics driver. Post back if this doesn't help

Hpp dv6 1115ee quick luanch notwotking


This model doesn't officially have Windows 8 support. That would be why the quick launch doesn't work. Also quick launch I believe for HP is only supported for Win 8 Pro and Enterprise versions, not the consumer version.

My dv 3 was originally running Vista-64, however because off the huge number of bugs I was encountering I decided to upgrade the OS to Windows 7 32-bit. It runs like a dream and ha been a nearly flawless...


There are some items that will need to be updated to the new OS. I am including a link to HP's website. I would look at the driver section (there is new drivers for the quick launch), and the software solutions. In fact since these will be the most updated driver and software patchs for Windows 7, I would probably download most of it. Hope this helps and fixes the glitches you seem to be having.

My hp 4520s probook's mouse pad got locked accidentally, and it's not unlocking by double tapping on the light button on the mouse pad. please help me with this asap.


First, try double tapping the light again. You may have just mis-tapped.

Next try restarting the laptop. Certain laptops re-enable the track pad on restart so long as a USB mouse isn't connected.

If that fails, navigate to the Mouse Settings on your PC and re-enable it there. If you have a USB mouse you can use that. If not, you can use the keyboard. Windows Key will launch the Start Menu, arrow keys can highlight options, Enter will click on them, Control+Tab and Control+Shift+Tab will switch tabs (in a window that has tabs).

In Windows XP and 7 (and probably Vista), Mouse Settings is located at Control Panel > Mouse > Settings.

Dell Studio 1737 --power button is broken. Is there another way to power it on?


friends ... i discovered a way that you can power on the dell studio 1535 easily ...

first of all you know the power button .. it's now working ( or stuck )
in the other side of the labtop, there's a wifi button, when the labtop is already shutten down, you can press it and it will give a light then shuts down the light in the button, that means that it gives power, now to complete the process you should know the touch button in the left side that means Dell MediaDirect ( touch control button of the dell studio ) ..

ok, Now, do exactly what i'm telling you :)

1- when the computer is shutten down, plz press the wifi detector button one press
2- it will give a light then shuts then gives light again for a longer time.
3- when giving the first light for a short time, do not wait, press the media touch button quickly, continuesly and separetly.
it it doesn't work ... try it for many times tell you know when exactly to press the media touch button

then you'll see that the labtop starts as if it was in sleep :)
thanks :)

Light-up volume bars on the hp pc notebook dv7 1132nr


Hi Folks....
If you are talking about the Quick Launch buttons of the Notebooks from where we usually increase, decrease or mute the Volume, the lights will be still and will not increase or decrease with the increase or decrease in Volume.
However, you do have a utility which should be preinstalled in Notebooks called HP Quick Touch which shows the bars on the Display when the volume is Increased or Decreased  using the Quick Launch buttons. This application is not compatible with Windows Vista 64 bit edition.
The HP Quick Touch application is available for download from the link below :
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp38001-38500/sp38358.exe

Save the file in the Notebook and double click it once the download is completed to install the application.
Hope this helps....
