15.4-inch HP Compaq 615 Notebook PC (VC284EA) was recently at Laptoport workshop. The laptop had a damaged HDD (from the heat). It was never serviced.
Check-out all internal pictures of the clean-up process, after the break (25 photos at the gallery).
Today HP expanded its notebook PC line with its new products the HP ProBook 5330m, HP EliteBook 2560p and HP EliteBook 2760p.
HP ProBook 5330m designed for business professionals who value style, performance and affordability is less than 1-inch thick. It weighs 3.9 pound and comes with a 13.3-inch diagonal HD screen for exceptional portability. Also includes a backlit keyboard, making it easier to type in low-light environments.
The new ProBook is powered by the latest second-generation Intel Core i5 and i3 dual-core processors. It includes the HP Fingerprint Sensor and TPM for enhanced hardware-based data security. Optional Intel vPro technology helps deliver cost savings and improves security and remote manageability.
An HP Pavilion dv4-1100ea was brought for internal clean-up at Laptoport workshop for a second time. The fan was working continuously. Machine wasn’t shutting down, but plastics were getting hot around the power button. We had to check it again.
HP HDX X18T-1000 CTO was in Laptoport workshop for virus removal. Machine was infected, the HDD had bad sectors and the user wanted a clean install. We backed-up data and continued putting the system on a new hard drive. These laptop potentials were remarkable. It came to be a superb performer.
PC was quick to respond to keyboard and mouse commands. Installing Vista Home Premium 64bit past with an ease, so as putting the drivers. From that point onwards the updates and other basic configuring was a pleasure.
Today we will show you some internal pictures of HP Pavilion DV5-1020EV, which was for repair at Laptoport workshop. Its fan was not spinning at all. This computer was shutting down and we opened it to check it out.
We knew from the user, that before the fan stop it was making a loud noise. Sometimes this is a good signal – the fan might need to be changed or serviced. On the outside the air vents did not look dirty. There were a few possibilities – burned fan, motherboard fault or hopefully a blockage. Keeping in mind that this was an Intel version of the DV5 series, which usually does not get as hot as the AMD one, we were wondering which one is it.
Silver HP G62-130EV was brought in Laptoport workshop some days ago. The machine was badly infected with viruses and user wanted a back-up and clean recovery.
We were surprised how quickly the recovery process passed. This laptop came to be quite a performer. The Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit boot timings were excellent too. Read the rest of this entry »
