    Hey guys,
    I am having an issue because of the WONDERFUL people at HP.

    I just got the notebook about 2 days ago, the only problem I had with it so far was the fact that the volume overlay would crash any programs I had in full screen if I adjusted the volume. I looked around on google and found nothing.

    I called HP, bad Idea. Essentially, he remoted in, and told me my BIOS needed updated. He downloaded the program for version F.13A. Upon him running the flash utility, I notice my current version was F.15 or maybe F.16. When he got done installing the notebook powered off, after powering it on, I HAVE NO DISPLAY. The Laptop boots like normal, I have sound, but no display. i tried installing the latest NVIDIA drivers but it errors.

    I KNOW I need to update the BIOS to the correct version, but I am unsure where to find it, or even what it is.

    They are currently sending me a box so I can send it back, but if I can fix it in the meantime it would be awesome.

    DV7T-3100

    i7 720Q
    GT 230M
    4GB RAM
    500GB HDD
    Win7 x64

    the exact model number is WH764AV.

    I am a very computer savvy person. just let me know what I need to do, or if you need more info let me know.

    Thanks,
    Shane

    HDV capture with my Canon HV30 has been impossible. Has anyone successfully captured HDV from any camera, on a DV7t and Windows 7?
    If so, what software?

    I updated most of my drivers a week ago including the nvidia 195.64 which is smooth with no problems. I didn't touch the bios and probably won't for a while. It's running to good to screw it up with a new bios. I'll wait a while.

    Hey guys,
    i am planning to buy HP Pavilion dv7t:
    Core i7 720QM
    500gb HD
    6 GB/DDR3 1333 MHz
    Nvidia GT 230M
    Win7 x64

    My question is will this notebook be good enough to work well for VFX and fullHD video edit ( AVCHD ) ?
    Thanks,
    Hristijan

    So far so good, using Hf20 full HD. Maybe could use more ram. My software is Cyberlink Powerdirector, and CL Mediashow5. Still cannot capture HDV using this laptop.

    You wanna capture directly to the notebook with your Canon HF20 via USB or ?Try it Adobe OnLocation but you need firewire.
    Anyway thanks for the info.
