One nice feature is that on the front of the notebook, there is a little button to disable the wireless card. This is not the most modern laptop, it does not have the latest bells and whistles and it is not the sleekest and slimmest laptop on the block. Although the laptop does look large, it is fairly light. The wireless card works, but there is plenty of room for improvement. I have problems conecting to internet throug a cable wireless is detected my computer needs the ethernet driver I went to hp support to download and install the one made for windows xp and tried manually to install it and did not work perhaps I made a mistake on istalling it. Battery life performance could be better too. Below you can see the integrated 56k modem on the left, followed by two PCMCIIA card slots and then the audio controls as discussed earlier.

I will say the optical drive is slightly loud at times, especially so when burning. Drop down on that and select the second item on the list Hardware ID’s. It is full sized and the layout is standard, so those used to using a desktop computer keyboard should find this layout easy to move to.


Keyboard and Touchpad The keyboard is average for a laptop, nothing wrong and nothing great either. Screen I went for the inch XGA screen. Although the laptop does look large, it is fairly light. Message 10 of Sound and Speakers The speakers are also quite good for a laptop; the sound is crisp and clear. As a student who has to do a lot of typing on this keyboard, such a feature is a major plus. Size and Comfort and Strength This laptop is not a thin unit and looks more like a desktop replacement really.

You will have to use this Windows XP driver I modified. I would have much rather had more USB ports than antiquated hardware that takes up space on the back of the notebook.

Message 5 of One great feature is having a little button above the touchpad that enables you to push it in to turn off the use of the touchpad. One thing I like is the mute and volume buttons on the side. Message 6 of Notice the quick launch buttons above the keyboard.

I hope this review will assist those looking for a laptop. The wireless reception could be much batter.

All forum topics Previous Topic Next Topic. Message 3 of pwvilion These are placed well and work great when you need to quickly mute sound.


The battery life at just less than 3 hours is fine, but compared to newer Intel laptops, is not very good. The touchpad works well, or at least as advertised. As with any laptop, there are of course short falls.

Uncheck the optional offers unless for some reason you want them. This topic has been archived.

HP is one of the few notebook makers that use AMD mobile chips allowing for more bang for the buck in my opinion. These buttons come in handy and I use them all the time. Again, a PS2 port, is it really needed? Didn’t find what you were looking for? Other than these downfalls, the laptop is stable, sturdy, and built quite well.

That folder will be located in C: Since there isn’t even an XP audio driver listed for your model, I need to figure out what audio chip it has.
