    I believe battery life should last longer than C749TU/C777TU which last roughly around 2hrs, as for the spec which last 4 hrs and 16 mins I think it is general spec and more to C2D system as C700 sri also support C2D.
    In short battery life should be C2D>DCore>Celeron for same platform.
    (pls correct me if I’m wrong).

  • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

    Can C700 series support Core2Duo? HP only provide Dual Core CPU for the moment.

  • RR

    You can download the service guide from link below:
    http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01301275.pdf
    It shows C700 can support up to T8300.

  • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

    Yup. I downloaded that guide before. But didn’t trust so much on it until somebody make it work with Core 2 Duo CPU. :P

    Hi all,
    My friends starting to receive their C778TU and already installed 3 units with the sata native “Enable”. Btw. all the drivers for C749/777TU work find but need to install the webcam driver.
    As for enabling the internal “Mic” do not install the audio drivers by “have disk” method, let the hardware search the driver through internet.

  • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

    Cool… Glad to hear that. Thanks for the internal mic info. :)
    Err… Any luck on the webcam driver? I would like to update it at my post. :P

  • Casio

    I got this model as well, but I’m having a tough time installing the driver for the wireless card.

    I was going to install win XP, but since it was so difficult to find drivers, I went and got Vista. And now, I’m still stuck with the WLan missing driver, any tips?

    RR, can you ask your friends? :-)

  • RR

    Jayce, webcam driver link:
    ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp35001-35500/sp35414.exe
    wit this driver, I believe the drivers collection should be complete.

    Casio, no need to ask them la.. Jus ask me la.. in fact I’m the wan who installed for them, to install the wlan, jus use the Atheros driver, link here :
    http://www.atheros.cz/download/drivers/ar5xxx/xp32-5.3.0.56-whql.zip
    Hope tis help.

  • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

    RR, hey, you are the man. Thanks for the webcam driver. :D

    Thanks RR. I didn’t know the WLAN is Atheros. I’ve installed so many Intel and Broadcom drivers and got really frustrated. But Thanks for the info.

    I installed Vista so I had to search for Vista’s driver. I found a way to check the device ID, so that it’d match with the driver. And found this link for the WLAN from HP:
    http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=ob-55737-1&lc=en&cc=fr&dlc=fr&product=3629595&os=2093&lang=fr

    The driver works! The filename is sp37913.exe

    I still have one unknown device though..Have no idea what it is..

    Becareful. I just get this unit from HP. This Presario C778TU is total can’t install winxp. When u put in XP setup CD, u unable to detect the hardisk. But, u able to install vista.

    Thanks.

  • Hang

    Ehm. May be need sata driver to install winXP. Who have it?

  • koktong

    C778TU can install XP. I’ve done that. Just disable the “Native SATA” in BIOS.

    Else if you need to install SATA, you must have a USB floppy drive.

  • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

    Hang, just follow koktong’s guides will do. ;)

    koktong, hey man, thanks for your help. :D

  • KS

    Just want to know, after installed the xp and all the required driver, should i “enable” back the “Native SATA” in BIOS? And what is the function of this “Native SATA”.

  • jack

    I just received my C778TU notebook. Thanks for all the drivers info.

    I manage to install its successfully in XP.

    But i have some question on the wireless, i try to press the wireless button it seem like don’t have any action on enable or disable. The light only show one color only. Is this normal?

    The internal mic not working, i test it using the headset with mic work perfectly. Anybody manage to make the internal mic work?

  • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

    KS, just leave the setting to disable. Theoretically, the hard drive speed will be faster if enable. But you cannot feel it on the real world. :P

    jack, this is driver issue. We cannot turn off the wireless by using the button.
    Internal mic not working is also a known issue. Try update the driver online to solve the problem. :)

  • VK

    Hi All

    Just wanted to highlight that you can run vista on this machine and its quite fast mine is running fine after putting in 1GB RAM (total = 1.5GB). I’m running vista ultimate, which is the best among the vista series . SO i suppose running vista home basic and premium must be even faster.

    So no need to install XP , so far i have installed games and other usual application its running fine , and finding drivers is also a breeze. Also can install MS office for Xp in vista , no problems as well…

    Also

    Hi VK,

    how’s the drivers compared to xp? it is d/l from hp website? need to disable SATA as per xp installation?

    just got my c778tu, contemplating which os to install :-(

  • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

    C778TU should work fine on Windows Vista. But running Windows XP will be faster.
    No need to disable SATA while install Windows Vista. And HP provides all the drivers too. Just download from HP website. ;)

  • hang

    Thanks to everybody, am able to install XP with intel storage drive from HP website & using a USB floppy drive. But, where to get all d drivers. Faint.

  • RR

    jayce, is it possible for u to create a proper forum? Cause it’s very difficult to browse through all those reply, that’s why some of us here keep asking same questions as post by others earlier.

  • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

  • andy

    according to superpi test, M540 is faster than T2370

    M540 – concoe class
    T2370 – merom class

    superpi test:
    my M540 – 1M @ 33.5 sec
    according to web info, T2370 – 1M @ 36.5 sec!!!

    do u believe it?

    http://www.xtremesystems.com/pi/

  • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

    Hmm… This superpi test is quite old – 2006/02/14. It might not support multi threading. Therefore, T2370 will loss M540 if only single thread is used. :P

  • andy

    then can u name me a common programs that uses dual threading?

    which anti virus program uses dual threading?

    and is there a tweak to force single threading application to run on both core? cause as far as concern, most application only single threading?!

    and on winxp booting, is it single or multi threading loading?

    if i see the main benefit to pay extra rm450 more, i will get another one. pls ignored the other add on benefit such as wifi, dvd burner, longer batt. life, 1gb ram, webcam. as my main pc oledi hav those. my notebook is only to serve as slave pc next to my main pc :D

    and for 1gb ram is pretty low for me as i dun use virtual ram, it’s better to get a 2gb ram for only rm120.00 from shop. and does this notebook support 4gb ram? i know 2gb does as i am using it ;)

  • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

    Wow… You have a lot of questions. Sorry that I do not know all of them. Most new applications now has multi threading like Adobe Photoshop.
    No tweak to force single threading application to run on both core. You need to have 2 threads in order to use up all 2 cores. Dual core is better than single core as you can do multiple tasks at same time. I will prefer dual core nowadays. Quad core is even better as I use Photoshop a lot. :D

  • KK

    i think the internal mic is working….but very soft till cannot detect the volume when u speak…i tried to blow wind into the mic and the volume increased!!..haha

    about the wireless light…always orange whether is on of off…so wont know whether is on or off unless have a look at taskbar icon

  • RR

    he..he.. lucky me, my wifi button blue when on & orange when off. Btw, I’m using broadcom wifi card.
    Andy,
    if u would like to try multi threading software, jus use any video encoding software to convert video files to other format, u will feel the speed different of d/core compared to single.

  • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

    KK, he… He… I still didn’t try on the internal mic yet. :P

    RR, seem like the Atheros AR2425 WLAN b/g driver is not perfect in this case. :?

  • RR

    not sure, might be the quick launch driver (winxp) more suitable for broadcom

  • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

    Oh… Then need to find a better quick launch driver lo. :D

  • Mertz

    For those who really want to use Native Mode on SATA, try to download chipset identification utility software from Intel and you know what chipset you are using.

  • ck

    just to inform you all that i have successful install xp on my c778tu with little help from my friend, and work flawlessly :-)
    minor issue on the wifi button constantly on orange and int mic like others.

    total cost so far:-
    c778tu = rm1399
    ‘ahem’ xp pro + ms office + others = you know how much la :-p
    belanja mamak for friend = rm5
    1gb ram = rm60 (not purchased yet)
    150gb external hdd = ?? (not purchased yet)
