Re: HP DV2-1039wm laptop running like a slideshow (only slower) when unplugged...
The BIOS is actually really, really limited on what can be changed. Boot order, date, time, passwords, fan always on, yadda yadda. The very baseline for a BIOS. Although, I think I figured it out.
The fan is set to "Always On", but I don't hear a fun running and I don't feel any exhaust on the bottom of the laptop. Soooooo...I think my fan is either tangled or dead. Which blows. Though, I find it funny that the laptop lets you run as hot as you want to when it's plugged into the wall. Thank you, HP. 'preciate'cha.
