Skype & HP Pavilion g7-1219wm Notebook PC

Filed under: Uncategorized — ioconnor @ 6:26 pm

The installation of Skype caused the laptop to crash. Don’t remember if I was using Firefox or Chrome but that might have had something to do with it. However once the computer rebooted itself automatically everything worked fine. Too fine. The camera is very clear. I took a piece of paper and folded it neatly a few times and then taped it over the lens. I don’t want to see myself or have malicious software take pictures of me without my knowledge. Really all cameras should come with a sliding cover so you can physically disable it. Haven’t ever seen anything like that but it’s a good idea.




  1. December 25, 2011 received my hp Pavilion g7-1219wm Notebook PC as a present. I was very excited with my present only to find defective equipment!! Who is on the quality assurance line inspecting products? The DVD door will not open!! Sending back to hp for repairs on the 27th after talking to a Tech of which I had to wait on hold for 30 minutes and worked with them for 20 minutes on the phone….wanted to send the parts to me for another Tech to walk me through the steps to install the new parts!!! I dont think so, FedEx is picking up today for repairs…looking into extended warranty on this gift!!

  2. I also got my hp pavilion g7-1219 notebook pc as a present. It works just fine. So far no problems. The the only thing that i have to activate now is the Microsoft office. The Norton Internet Security is ok, i would perfer AVG though.

    • I believe the MS Office will cost you money. I’d recommend using google documents which has nice spreadsheet capabilities or open office. I have an old totally legal copy of MS Office I paid a fortune for if I ever need it but those two free solutions work fine for everything I do.
