View Full Version : [ubuntu] HP Pavillion dv9000 Inquiry

April 25th, 2009, 10:57 PM
Hello. I own a HP Pavillion dv9000 laptop. Recently, I was forced to reinstall Windows Vista due to various system issues. I have reinstalled every driver (that I know of, from HP'S offical site.) The main issue is that the system runs games VERY POORLY. I did not have this issue before the windows reinstalliation, it ran almsot every game I've played flawlessly. It isn't interenet lag and it is capable of starting any game, but the quiality is atrocious. (E.g very slow movement speed, mouse lag during game play, etc.) I am no expert on computers, so what do you reckon the is the source which is causing this problem? Is it related to the installiation of a certain driver that I must of forgot to install correctly? If so, which one? Any help is appreciated.

Are you running vista and ubuntu - dual boot? If the problem is in Vista then the proper forum is from the Microsoft site. If you are in Ubuntu, I noticed that you are a new user of this forum. Is this your first venture in Linux. If so, what version are you using? More info would be helpful.

There was a recall on some dv9000 series laptops, check this HP page (http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?&objectID=c01087277).
