Battery life performance could be better too. I will say the optical drive is slightly loud at times, especially so when burning. 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. Some models have Vista drivers and they normally work on W7. The laptop itself is well built. The battery life at just less than 3 hours is fine, but compared to newer Intel laptops, is not very good.

HP ZE Budget Notebook Review (pics, specs)

The other problem might be that the graphics adapter may not have the driver installed because I don’t think any of the ones supported by the XP driver are capable of running Windows 7. I am not sure if it is a bad antenna inside the notebook or the wireless card itself, whatever the case, this is definitely an aspect of the notebook that could be improved. One thing I like is the mute and volume buttons on the side. Message 6 of I have not encountered any problems and am overall pleased with my HP unit.

I do wish that this notebook had a slightly larger screen, but for the price I paid I cannot argue. Post the top string of characters that you see in the window.


I would have much rather had more USB ports than antiquated hardware that takes up space on the back of the notebook. This is the only way I know of to get the audio to work on your notebook.

One nice feature is that on the front of the notebook, there is a little button to disable the wireless card. HP is well known for their wide range of laptops that offer good price to feature ratios.

The CDRW aspect of this media drive works fine as well, so rip and burn at will!

Size and Comfort and Strength This laptop is not a thin unit and looks more like a desktop replacement really. I find it hard at times to connect on campus where I see other students surfing away.

Glad to have been of assistance. Please feel free to ask me anytime about a specific model you are working on and I will be happy to help you out if I can. Message 10 of It all depends on the hardware each notebook has. 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.

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. Keyboard and Touchpad The keyboard is average for a laptop, nothing wrong and nothing great either. Each model is different regarding how you handle the drivers and on some, it won’t be possible to get W7 to work completely.


Now you see a Property drop down list and it is defaulted to Device Description. Information and links in this thread may no longer be available or relevant. I also had success on istalling the video driver. The go to the device manager and click to expand the Display Adapters category.

Message 9 of I have zipped up and attached the modified driver and you can download, unzip and install auio by using the above method. This topic has been archived.

Message 1 of Click on that, and then click on the driver tab. Message 3 of Please post the hardware ID for the ethernet controller so I can figure out what model it is.

HP is one of the few notebook makers that use AMD mobile chips allowing for more bang for the buck in my opinion. Visit our network of sites:
