Given that the generation of quad that works on the 8440 series doesn't come with integrated graphics, there will be nothing in the future to make quads work on intel integrated video...as there is no intel video to use.
hello, i have a 8440p with the intelHD integrated unit, running the i5 board, with 6gb ram, what is the fastest CPU i can run with the machine or can i fit a i7 cpu?
also with the integrated GPU, can the internal board be swapped out to run the nvidia gpu?

Are you sure it only works that way? On my 6930p, the DriveGuard sensor supports both the main HDD bay as well as the UpgradeBay (see attached image).
I do keep my SSD in the UpgradeBay as well, because initially I also thought that 3D DriveGuard only worked for the main drive bay, so I left my HDD there, and didn't bother to swap them after I learnt it would work the other way around as well.
Honestly, I'm not. I guess I was totally wrong. It seems to be that way you mentioned above.
Hello all, I'm new to this forum! Hopefully I can help with things here and there. Now to business - I have an 8440p that refuses to turn the fan on while running on battery power. It will literally let the processor cook to 105 celcius then shut off and not allow me to turn it on for about 5 minutes. I have tried older and the latest BIOS revisions. I can manually turn the fan on using HWinfo64, but it's annoying to have to open it and set the fan speed every time it resumes from standby, or I switch from AC to battery power, etc. Anyone else ever have this issue? I've set the system cooling policy to active, passive, changed BIOS settings such as "Fan always on while on AC power", enabled and disabled "power monitor circuit", all have not made a difference. This laptop has been through a couple reinstalls, has latest drivers, etc, the fan just does not come on at all if it's running on battery.
I bought an HP 8440p laptop (with Intel graphics) in order to repair it. The previous owner stated that it wouldn't turn on after Bios upgrade. The led lights are on and the fan works but the screen remains black. The same with external screen.
I took the hdd out and checked it out. It works fine and hidden partiotion with bios files is there.Then I took it back and tried to do a bios recovery by holding all four arrows down while powering the laptop. The padlock led blinks 4-5 times the the laptop shuts down, and after maybe 10 sec. it turns on with padlock led blinking and again after 5-10 sec. shuts down. It turns on now and padlock led doesn't blink.
I also downloaded latest bios for 8440p and run HP FirmwareUpdate tool with "Create bootable USB disk on key" option. The padlock led blinks continuosly, the laptop doesn't shut down, the fan speeds up but nothing happens. I let it work for more than 1/2 hour with no result.
Then I disassembled it and checked the motherboard under microscope but it seems ok. What is unusual unlike other laptops I couldn't find the graphics chip. There is one large chip but I presume that it isn't gpu since no cooler is on it.
OK....I have a whole pile of the HP 8440P Elitebooks. I want to overclock them. First, any bios updates or hacks?
Second, Which chipset would I use with Setfsb, and does setfsb support it? I want to get the DAWGS running faster! Thanks in advance....
Lastly, any jumper settings that would give a hardware overclock?
