Part 2: How to extend battery life on hp

1. Reduce screen brightness

The screen is one of the most power-hungry components in a laptop. It requires a large amount of power to make the display look clear and bright, so reducing brightness is the easiest and most effective way.


The screen brightness key is usually located in the Fn function key and has a small sun icon with up and down arrow. Simply press and hold the correct function key and select up or down to change settings.


2. Turn off features that are not usually used

Windows provides some powerful power features to keep your computer running at peak performance and optimize battery life in mobile applications. Enter "Control Panel" in the "Start" search box and open the "Power Options". Of course, you can use hp laptop power management software to control the battery power.


There are more ways to save power in the Windows Mobility Center,including settings for turning off the monitor and getting into sleep mode faster.

Turn off WIFI


Wi-Fi consumes power by continuously getting power from the battery, and it constantly needs to search the network when it is not connected.

If you turn it off as much as possible to reduce unnecessary waste power.


3. Disconnect unnecessary external devices

Using USB device can quickly drain your battery because the computer motherboard must power them, so these save energy. U disk, mouse, etc. are commonly used peripherals,

And if you don't need sound, you can switch the speaker to mute.


Eject the optical drive. Rotating the disc in the CD-ROM drive consumes a lot of power, so eject the disc can get extra battery life to ensure your other work.


4. Upgrade reliable hardware

Most laptops come with a 6-cell battery, but many manufacturers offer 8-cell or even 12-cell batteries for upgrades, which doubles your power. If you have a spare battery, you can replace it frequently and use it alternately to ensure battery use time. Or buy and replace a new battery, replace the old battery, which is a complete solution to which battery drain fast.

How to Connect a Laptop to a Projector

Nowadays, projectors are used more and more widely, not only for work, but also in many families. Many times, when you want to use a projector, how to connect projector to laptop windows 10? Mastering some of the ways to connect your projector and laptop can help you.


[attachimg]12976[/attachimg]


Part 1: Projector Port

Laptops can be connected to projectors with HDMI, VGA, USB3.0, wireless networks, wired networks, and more.


1.Digital signal interface:HDMI

The full name of HDMI is called: "High Definition Multimedia"

The HDMI interface provides up to 5Gbps of data transmission and can transmit up to 15 meters, delivering uncompressed audio signals and high-resolution video signals.

Connect laptop to projector with HDMI can synchronize the transmission of high-definition video and audio, but it does not mean that the projector itself has high-definition playback capability.


With the popularity of high-definition players and Blu-ray players, HDMI is the most commonly used interface for mirror screen on TV from a laptop. Large-screen entertainment more convenient in family life.


[attachimg]12977[/attachimg]


2.Digital signal interface: DVI

DVI is called the Digital Visual Interface. There are two kinds of DVI interfaces. One is DVI-D (Digital,pure digital) interface, which can only receive digital signals. There are only 3 rows, 8 columns and 24 pins on the interface. One of the pins in the upper right corner is empty, which is not compatible analog signal.


[attachimg]12978[/attachimg]


The other is called the DVI-I interface, which is compatible with analog (which can be used to output analog signals through a DVI-I to VGA adapter) and digital signals. Most video cards,LCD monitors, and projectors have this port.


The DVI interface is a pure video signal transmission. Digital image information is transmitted directly to the display device without any conversion, so it is faster. Using DVI for data transmission, the signal is not attenuated, the color is purer, and it can meet the needs of high-definition signal transmission. The DVI interface is used extensively in high-end business projectors and large engineering projectors.


3.Analog signal interface:VGA

VGA is the abbreviation of Video Graphics Adapter. The signal type is analog. Just like the DVI interface, it can only support video transmission. The difference is that the VGA interface is an analog signal. When the discrimination rate reaches 1080p, you will find that the quality of the video picture is significantly degraded.


[attachimg]12979[/attachimg]


4.Data interface: USB/SD

USB interface is familiar to everyone.With the digitization and function integration of the projector, the latest USB read-only function supports jpg images, TXT documents, Microsoft Office and PDF files, and even videos in WMV format.


5. Control interface: RJ45

RJ45 is a standard network interface,which can be connected to the LAN port of the router. At this time, the computer is also connected to the network cable, and ensure that the computer and projector are in the same routing network. Using the APP with the projector and entering the login code can also realize the computer display on projector.


6.Connect computer to tv wirelessly: WIFI

Wireless projectors can realize switching screens, support real-time HD video playback, picture presentations and other functions through wireless transmission technology and wireless network.


The way of windows 10 connect to projector wireless is actually very simple, and the setting of the device is not the same. According to the description of each brand projector, insert the wireless projection module into the corresponding position of the wireless projector, start WIFI, find the wireless module identification code of the wireless terminal of the mobile phone, download the APP and make simple settings.


Part2: How to Connect HP Laptop to Projector Windows

How to Fix Laptop Fan Running So Loud

Recently, many of my friends have asked me a question: why is my laptop fan so loud? Generally speaking, the newly laptop fan is less noisy, and will become larger after one or two years of use. This post provides some tips to solve the noise of notebook fans.


[attachimg]12969[/attachimg]


Part1: Why is the fan so loud on laptop

In terms of power saving and noise reduction, the notebook generally only starts to rotate when the temperature reaches the predetermined value of the BIOS. And often it is not full operation, it is divided into several speeds to run, when the temperature is lower than the predetermined value, it will automatically stop running. After using the laptop for a period, it will produce noise, which is especially noticeable when the notebook is overloaded.


When the laptop is turned on, the fan will be turned on for hardware self-test, so maybe laptop making noise when switched on.


Most of the biggest noise comes from the notebook cooling fan. When the notebook is used for a long time or the working environment is dusty, a large amount of dust accumulates inside the fan. When the fan rotates, due to the blockage of dust, not only the laptop fan sounds loud, but sometimes the floc will entangle the fan blades and the fan will not work properly.

Laptop fans should be cleaned regularly to avoid damage to other hardware due to excessive temperatures.


Part2: How to fix the laptop fan making noise

1.Remove dust

Dust is one of the important causes of fan noise. In general, new computer fans are always less noisy, and will become significantly larger after a longer period of use, especially in computers with more dusty work environment.


When the CPU fan rotates, the vortex effect makes it easy for dust to adhere to the fan.

At this point, we removed the fan and it was necessary to clean it with a hair dryer and a small brush.

Note: The crack between the back of the fan and the heat sink is the easiest place to forget. Don't forget to clean it when you are dusting.


[attachimg]12970[/attachimg]


Comparison laptop fan cleaning and without cleaning:


[attachimg]12971[/attachimg]


2. Add lubricant

For oil-impregnated bearing fans, the motor drive shaft becomes inflexible after along period of work causes making noise sound when the fan running.

It is recommended that you add lubricants at the bearing locations. Be careful when adding lubricants. Never add too much.


Add lubricant to your laptop fan:

1.Remove the fan blade from the fan and clean the fan.

2.Apply lubricant to the reel motor and the fan blades.

3.Fasten the fan blades. After handling the fan, it is best to clean the heatsink and the silicone grease on the CPU (graphics card) and add new silicone grease.


[attachimg]12972[/attachimg]


3.Reduce vibration

After the above two methods of the laptop fan noise problem has not been solved. It is necessary to consider the fan vibration problem, usually the high-speed rotating fan will have a high-frequency collision with the heat sink. If the fan and the heat sink are then properly stabilized, the vibration noise generated by the collision can be greatly reduced.

Check that the fan screws are secure.


Foam sponges are used to reduce vibration and check if the foam sponge is still there. If not, it is recommended to replace the new laptop fan.


[attachimg]12973[/attachimg]


4. Buy an external cooling fan

The notebook cooler is a very convenient component to use, and a board plus a fan helps maximize the use of airflow to cool the laptop motherboard.

They also have variable wind speeds, temperature sensors and built-in USB hubs. If you're using a laptop on your desktop or other static location, playing demanding 3D games, rendering video the cooler is the ideal choice.


It can temporarily solve the problem of fan noise and overheat.


5. Kill the process

Forexample: laptop fan noise hp

If you open a lot of software on your computer, the computer will speed up the calculations and generate more heat. At this point, the computer generates a large amount of heat, and the fan will run at a high speed and produce a louder sound.


Fix hp laptop fan noise windows 10:

Prevent software from starting when the computer starts;

Close the software program after use;

Mac users can use "Activity Monitor" toisolate and kill unwanted processes, while Windows users can use "Task Manager".


[attachimg]12974[/attachimg]


If running the software is a problem, it may be wise to prevent unnecessary processes from starting when the laptop turns on. Mac users can go to System Preferences > Users & Groups> Launch and delete any unnecessary programs.

Task manager in windows 10:

You're probably familiar with the three-finger salute—Ctrl+Alt+Delete, select "task manager"—start up, choose the Target program and click "disabled"


[attachimg]12975[/attachimg]


6.Update the laptop BIOS

After the laptop is released, HP may distribute updated BIOS to manage fans, CPU power loads and other components. To check if there is an updated BIOS, you should determine the BIOS version currently installed on your computer and then determine if a newer version is available in the service website.


Part3: Replace laptop fan

After the above steps and the laptop still making weird noise, it is recommended to replace the fan. To buy the laptop repair parts, include laptop fan, laptop keyboard, laptop screen complete at LAPTOP.GEMWON.COM
