Windows 7 Home - 64 Bit

mircea00 - Good Morning! 07/25/09 @ 08:56 PST. I can't do it today but I am going to pursue this question with HP, sometime as soon as I can. First though please repeat for me the specific symptoms - Is it that the Battery doesn't charge correctly in Windows 7 64? - or is it that when You are on the Battery the software won't manage the system by the settings You have set in Power Management? These settings would be when the display dims, when the display turns off, when the Computer goes to Sleep, and/or the Brightness of the display? If You could Please include these details we will (I will) go to HP and find out how these work in Vista which they - do support - so that we can figure out what isn't correctly configured in windows 7 64 so that we can make the Power Management work correctly. If your up for it we can go step-by-step & nail this. It has to work and I bet there are some real talented people in this forum that would help us!!!! That is why this forum rocks!! Let me know what You want to do because I really like to solve problems like this. It is this kind of stuff that really matters in my opinion!! Also I bet Microsoft would help also - Another Clue!?! God's Speed! Let's go for it - Patrick C

Windows 7 Home - 64 Bit

One more thing I have been on my Battery using Windows 7 - full blast for over 1 1/2 hrs and I still have 13%. Could you setup your power management settings in Vista 64 - and run a test. Note your settings, list them here, and tell us what the results are - specifically - Ok?? Patrick C

PowerManagement for dv5-1199ec

mircea00 -
The Windows 7 support you need for Power Management is I think the ACPI drivers or function. I think if you are still interested - that those are the functions that cause power management to work. Please verify this but I had to insure that mine were funtioning for my dv5 AMD processor in Windows 7 - 64. Hope this helps - I haven't seen anymore posts so I will let this go - unless there are more posts.

Windows 7 Ultimate

My laptop which came with Vista pre-installed (HP Pavilion dv5-1116em) is now Windows 7 Ultimate. I installed the Windows 7 drivers for my laptop available from HP site. My problems are below :

1) When hearing a song through Windows Media player using headset, I'm logging into skype, WMP pauses and the logging sound comes through speaker. After the conversation finished, if I signout skype, the signout sound comes through speaker and the WMP resumes. Also the WMP hears through the speaker for 2-3 seconds then back to headset.

The log-in and log-out sound of skype comes through speaker

2) When I'm in one messenger using headset ,say in skype, if a call comes in another messenger ,say in yahoo or gtalk, the second conversation automatically switches to the speaker.

When in one chat client, second chat client automatically switches to speaker

Is this the problem of audio driver as I'm using the correct audio driver for the laptop form HP site.

Can anybody help me to solve this ?

Regards and Thanks in advance
