    I am trying to get XP Mode to work under Windows 7 64-bit Professional. It keeps telling me that I don't have hardware virtualization enabled, and I can't seem to figure out how to access the Bios to enable it. Can anyone point me in the right direction to get XP Mode working?

    Thanks.

    I don't recall, but did you get a new motherboard?

    If you already had the proper motherboard and simply replaced the 2600XT with the 8800M, you have to reflash the BIOS. While you're at it, might as well flash to f.39.

    When you boot up, at the boot screen "HP logo" repeatedly hit F10. Last tab in BIOS (system configuration> device configuration) will have enable hardware virtualization option.

    You may have to Reboot twice.

    This is what I referred to when I asked about cleaning. Fans, vents, and heatsink fins should all be 'dust' free. It's more about airflow than anything, but if you have significant build up, then it acts as a thermal blanket as well. I would think you would have seen this/cleaned this if you had it opened before and it was significant.

    nVidia driver 195.62 is latest and you can get it here: http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

    Also, if you download and run gpu-z, you can tell if your fans are operating at full speed when they are supposed to.

    not sure in gaming. havn't gamed yet.

    on the subject of cleaning fans. i really want to do it (have never done it yet). but considering my temps, do you guys feel i should even bother or not yet? it's been a year and a few months owning it.

    only concern i have is 1 in particular, and it's not following the manual, but what the manual may not state. i rememeber someone doing this and they said their keyboard was never the same afterwards, because you had to pull it off to clean it, and it had some adhesive on it, which assuredly was not as adhesive, and i'm not sure that even if you had a certain brand, that it would be the same afterwards.

    help me someone with this part. thanks.

    Yeah, that would be someone who didn't follow the manual. :D

    Anyway, You only need to remove the top cover. Pages 53-55. That's it.

    Use you favorite methods to clean them - compressed air, vacuum, Q-tip dipped in Isopropl alcohol...

    Might as well update to f.39. No worries with this version. Just run as administrator.

    Well done! How does the difference feel in terms of graphics performance, now compared to before?
