The problem I have now is that I purchased an ssd to connect via ODD but I can't seem to find a MX714 FDD to Sata power converter locally.
Is there anyone who knows where I can get this cable locally?
Is anyone running an ssd, if so what methods have you used to set this up?
Just installed Windows 7 64 bit in anticipation of the Windows 10 upgrade - but having an issue with gigabit ethernet.
I've installed no drivers, apart from what comes with Windows 7, and it picks up Broadcom Gigabit correctly.
However transfer is at 100mbps and another thread mentioned Device Manager and manually set speed. Problem is my options are 10, 100 and Auto.
Any idea at all?

Have u updated hp n54l to latest bios?
Anyone installed Windows 10 on the HP ?
Yes on my N36L but cannot get my Lan to work, awaiting the gurus to step up and take a swing.
Was an upgrade over the very Lan that now is not working so go figure.
No new driver was installed according to windows and sees it as Broadcomm Gigabit so a little out of ideas.
It reports that the Lan cable is unplugged so not sure.
I have not yet checked to make sure it is enabled in the Bios but it would not find it if it weren't. (this was a previous problem I encountered).
Otherwise, seems a little more responsive than the WIN 7 i previously had installed.
Hmmmm. You've got me worried to try.
But I remember going from 7 > 8 and having an issue. I think it was a BIOS update.
You have the latest?
Yep win 8.1 doesnt load despite bios update. Dankbanker was going to provide win 7 😊 but he's banned😢
I was running Win 8.1 after the update.
Installing 10 now to see what if the LAN issue is there
EDIT : Mine works from HP N40L with Windows 10 64 bit pro
