  1. Decade, When you do a speed test you need to test the largest test number on Download .This gives you a more of a better test. so try the bigest number for your test.
  2. I was working on a project and the Laptop was left unattended with the testmy page up on the screen. I will keep an eye on it for a bit to see how long it last, then I will call HP.
  3. Thats terrible Isn't it. They should last longer.
  4. This is what I found on Batterys from HP. I guess the battery is only to last 2-4hrs. HP Pavilion and Compaq Presario Notebook PCs - Battery Types and Specifications This document provides comparison information about various battery technologies available for notebook computers. Li-ON: (Lithium Ion) Fast Charge Time 2-4h (Hours) Self Discharge Per Month 8% (Room Temperature) Cell Voltage 3.6v (Nominal) Operating Temperature -20 to 60C (Fahrenheit -4 to 140F) Maintenance None (To achieve max. service life) Charging Cycles 1200 (Average Service Life) Memory Effect No NiCd: (Nickel Cadmium) Fast Charge Time 1h (Hours) Self Discharge Per Month 15% (Room Temperature) Cell Voltage 1.25v (Nominal) Operating Temperature -40 to 60C (Fahrenheit -40 to 140F) Maintenance 30 Days (To achieve max. service life) Charging Cycles 500-2000 (Average Service Life) Memory Effect Yes NiMH: (Nickel-Metal Hydride) Fast Charge Time 2-4h (Hours) Self Discharge Per Month 30% (Room Temperature) Cell Voltage 1.25v (Nominal) Operating Temperature -40 to 60C (Fahrenheit -40 to 140F) Maintenance 90 Days (To achieve max. service life) Charging Cycles 500 (Average Service Life) Memory Effect Yes
  5. It is a HP Pavilion ze2000 model.
  6. How long should the life of a battery in a Laptop last? Mine lasted for 2hrs. Is that good or bad? This is a brand new Laptop 3 weeks old. Most of the time it was sitting on the table with testmy.net page open while I was trying to fix my granddaughter's intercom.
  7. You got to remember that home users are not the only ones on,Satellite. Most of the Gas Station and Railroad has Satellite and quite a few others that use the bandwith at those times also. But it is still better than DialUp. DW dose suck at times.
  8. It just depends on what time you are on and when you test . This is the best test ever. I should have checked my UpLoad also.
  9. This test was done at 1:46 EST :::..

  10. Test your Download with a bigger file. From what I see is that it is prime time and that could slow your speed. What is your Weather like? This is my Speed DownLoad. From what I read today is Satmex5 is having problems. That is my Sat. This is a bad one today. :::.. Download Stats ..::: Connection is:: 690 Kbps about 0.7 Mbps (tested with 2992 kB) Download Speed is:: 84 kB/s Tested From:: https://testmy.net/ (server2) Test Time:: Wed Dec 14 22:49:28 EST 2005 Bottom Line:: 12X faster than 56K 1MB download in 12.19 sec Diagnosis: May need help : running at only 74.43 % of your hosts average (direcpc.com) Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-6MD0YR8TE
  11. If you need more information you can look at these sites: http://www.dslreports.com/forum/sat http://www.wildblue.cc/ http://www.copperhead.cc/ Your not alone, there is a lot of people that can't get High Speed. Thats why we went to Satellite. There is a lot of horror stories out there but it is still better than Dialup. From what I have been reading it is better to get WildBlue than DirecWay. But they will start to slow down just like the rest of the Satellite companys. But right know it is better to get WB.
  12. I hear ya. The new ones seem to be junk. They just want to be in control just like rest of the big corp. a'nt it.
  13. Hey: wewdy Welcome to the site. From what Aggr3 said is true you need an installer to set it up, Federal law. You my have saved you some money setting it up for them . Now they just have to commisson it. Once they have commissioned it, you can do any thing you want to it, with out them knowing. The installer probally will fine tune it better because they won't be in a hurry to set it up. If your lucky. Good luck. I had Earthlink at first for three years, now I have DirecWay for about a year now. Saved me $10.00. Big deal lost dialup for backup. But they told me if I do loose service just call them and they will give me a number to use dialup temporarily. Also I don't have their software on my Comp thats nice less garbage running in the background. When I switched they commissioned it as a used system. Aggr3 I'm glad I kept my 4000. I read a lot on different forums and I learned not to upgrade. I even learned from your mistake. Thanks.

  16. I really don't do anything at all to mine except when it gets to much snow on it then I brush it off with a broom. I guess it really depends on what kind of signal you have. Mine is at 91 signal strength.
  17. I said to myself that I will never buy any more desktops after I built my first one.Thats because I want to know what is really in it. But I just got a laptop from Walmart though. Does that count?

  19. We also had the same problem with MSN also running to slow I thought that is was to many people online.
  20. I downloaded my Nortons System Works 2003 Pro. I am still having problems with the updates from Symantecs. The only update that I can't seem to update from symantecs is the WMI update. Is this needed for this program? What is this WMI anyway?
