Preferred Solution: EliteBook 8470P Factry Reset

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:Elitebook 8470p Help Install XP

Hi: Set the drive controller setting in the BIOS to AHCI. Also enable legacy mode in the BIOS, which should disable secure boot.  XP is not compatible with secure boot. Then read the info at the link below, Intel section.  Then read the info on the downloadable document for how to slipstream all of the sata drivers. http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Operating-System-and-Recovery/SATA-drivers-for-XP-solution-on-... I have zipped up and attached the drivers you need to slipstream below. Slipstream the entire unzipped file folder.

A:Why do i need LSI HDA Modem for my HP Elitebook 8470P?

Hi, It is a modem. It is very small program which runs in the background and nearly all older business laptops still have it. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. Therefore my suggestion: keep it. Regards.

Dear Customer, Welcome to HP Support Forum and we are glad to assist you. This is to inform you that all HP Business Notebooks such as Probooks  or Elitebooks have more stringent security than consumer models infact they don't produce 'halt codes', the password cannot be derived from the Serial Number and thecode is stored in non-volatile memory so removing the RTC cell will not reset the password in this case. Please have a look at this link. http://forums.mydigitallife.info/threads/49497-HP-Probook-Elitebook-BIOS-Password-Reset-Utility Replace the BIOS chiphttp://www.ebay.com/itm/HP-Elitebook-8470p-8470w-8570p-8570w-8770w-Programmed-Bios-Chip-No-Password-... Please Contact HP Business Notebook support they should be able to send you a customized SMC.bin file which you can use at boot to reset the password. Hope this helps, for any further queries reply to the post and feel free to join us again  **Click the White Thumbs Up Button on the right to say Thanks**Make it easier for other people to find solutions by marking a Reply 'Accept as Solution' if it solves your problem. Thank You,GBL84I am not an HP Employee  https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/26983620/Java_Bios/biosunlock.html

I am currently having an issue with a number of HP EliteBook 8470p machines where the wireless won't enable again after the computer has been put to sleep. LAN/WAN switching is enabled and I can still use the LAN card without any problems. The wireless drivers haven't been updated the only changes would have been some Windows updates. Disabling and enabling the device in device manager doesn't make a difference. Has anyone else experienced this problem?

So a little background history, about a year ago I plugged in my headphones and no sound was coming through so I went to the playback devices and disabled the laptop speakers in attempt that it would default the headphones and play out of them, which it did.

About a year later I finally stopped using the headphones and enabled the speakers again but for some reason sound won't play out of the laptop anymore. I don't know what caused this problem but I for some reason if I play games on my laptop no sound comes out anymore. Using Skype and watching videos anywhere else works but as soon as I launch a game there's never any audio.

I have barely any knowledge on computers and would like someone to guide me through and help me fix this! Thank you in advance.

Hello all!I've performed a BIOS update on Saturday to the latest one on HP's website, and ever since the laptop takes a long time to boot, flashing the LED code for "System board failure" - 5 blinks - and after a while boots normally to Windows. Since I had recently added 4gb ram, I tried removing it and re-seating the original 4gb stick, to no avail.Tried disconnecting the battery for 30s as I read in another post, no luck.Tried resetting bios to default, no luck. Both memory test and HDD test pass without errors.  Should I try to re-flash the BIOS, or is there any explanation for this odd behavior? Thank you very much for any help!

I read a long 8470 repair pdf doc but it never covered that part. It's still under warranty but don't really want to ship it both ways or know if its covered. Still I'd like to know how itcould be repaired. Can you just glue another cover on it or do you have to replace the entire plastic display bezel? This is what its supposed to look like http://img5.pcpop.com/ArticleImages/0X0/2/2520/002520015.jpg Mine is missing the square cover to the left side of the light. I hate leaving it open like that.

"Yes, i already upgrade my dual core cpu to quad core in my elitebook 8470p"I saw documents with info from hp with "3610qm 3630qm 3720qm and 3740qm" support for 8470p and 8570p models in this forum.There in JUNE 2012, The product overview:http://h20565.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docLocale=en_US&docId=emr_na-c03373336Said only 3610qm and 3720qm are compatible with the 8470p.But recently document i saw from hp (and i think is the reference guide more actual, january 2013 ) to 8470p and 8470w models like this:http://h20628.www2.hp.com/km-ext/kmcsdirect/emr_na-c03659338-3.pdfthere is not clear, even this document show that only 8470w support quadcore and for 8470p show only dual core models..so i need confirmation before buy quad core model, anybody can confirm if its possible??Thanks a lot

Hi, HP Elitebook 8470P is a series of many models/products of laptops and can spread over few years.

Dear Community, I have a HP Elitebook 8730w and I forgot the BIOS password. I tried all I could remember, I slept several days over it to remember, but I am lost. I contacted HP support but they told me they would not help with a file like smc.bin (which was mentioned in many forums). Any idea how to solve the problem ? I need to change the HDD but do not dare to do so as I cannot set up the new HDD or SSD in the BIOS. Help would very much be appraciated. I do not direclty post P/N and S/N due to privacy regulations in this forum. But if somebody can help me, please send message and I will post all the necessary details. I am student and have low budget so I was gladly using this older but fine Elitebook. But now i am real trouble.

A:HP EliteBook 8570w BIOS password reset

Dear Customer, Welcome to HP Support Forum and we are glad to assist you. This is to inform you that all HP Business Notebooks such as Probooks or Elitebooks have more stringent security than consumer models infact they don't produce 'halt codes', the password cannot be derived from the Serial Number and the code is stored in non-volatile memory so removing the RTC cell will not reset the password in this case. Please have a look at this link. http://forums.mydigitallife.info/threads/49497-HP-Probook-Elitebook-BIOS-Password-Reset-Utility Replace the BIOS chiphttp://www.ebay.com/itm/HP-Elitebook-8470p-8470w-8570p-8570w-8770w-Programmed-Bios-Chip-No-Password-... Please Contact HP Business Notebook support they should be able to send you a customized SMC.bin file which you can use at boot to reset the password. Hope this helps, for any further queries reply to the post and feel free to join us again  **Click the White Thumbs Up Button on the right to say Thanks**Make it easier for other people to find solutions by marking a Reply 'Accept as Solution' if it solves your problem. Thank You,K N R KAlthough I am an HP employee, I am speaking for myself and not for HP

Unfortunatelly, it's too late for that! The only way is to reinstall the original operating system, and I have no rescue disks! So please, can anyone help me? How could I use the hidden partition to reinstall the Win7 OS?Thank's a lot anyone read this post.

 Sorry for the second post on the same topic, but I'm hoping someone who has tried this can let me know if it worked.  I have the 8470P with native screen res of 1366x768. I would like to upgrade that to 1600x900. If I also buy the corresponding display cables to go with the new panel, will this upgrade work? I believe all connectors for both screen resolutions are 40 pin. One screen retailer stated that "HD screen (1366x768) uses one channel video cable, while HD+ (1600x900) and Full HD (1920x1080) use 2-channels video cable, thus they are not compatible. You can upgrade screen resolution by switching video cable to Full HD only! Please, refer to manufacturer to find compatible video cables for HD+ and FullHD resolutions." This sounds like it is possible to upgrade if the correct display cable is purchased. Does anyone know?

I have tried million drivers, and configurations; they all suffer of this problem.  Best,Patrick

Hello everyone,

I'm kind of freaking out right now. I turned my computer off about 12 hours ago, and now that I turned it on again it took much longer than usual for it to prepare the desktop. When I got in, there are about 50 % of my desktop icons missing, the programs I had attached to the taskbar were missing, I opened chrome and all my bookmarks and other info were gone, most of my folders are empty (for example downloads folder contains nothing), my desktops wallpaper had changed to the default HP one, there are programs missing from the startup menu... I don't even know what other damage has been done yet. The only thing I can recall doing yesterday that could have caused this was downloading Red Alarm, but I'd love to know what is going on and how I can fix this.

Thanks for your time,
Sebruz

A:Tons of files missing, desktop reset, browsers and toolbars reset...

Some additional information:
I just found some of the missing files and folders from another location, but it seems like pretty much all software has reset somehow. Google Chrome's options, history, bookmarks etc are all gone, skype thought it was my first time using it and all the files my friend's have sent me at some point were re-sent. I even checked the trash bin, and I have no idea how but there are actually items there that I've emptied from the trash bin long ago.

I have a Windows 8 tablet Acer Iconia W700(I5 Core) and i am trying to factory reset to the default settings again because of the stupid problems i am having on the tablet.
Here is the problem i am trying to get into the BIOS which is the 1 step on the Acer website but for some bizarre reason when it is completely off i press the Windows button and the power button to get in to the BIOS as it says on the Acer Website but it keeps going to the start menu/desktop now instead of going to the BIOS. :/
I have factory reset/hard reset on my Acer Iconia W700 a couple times and i never had this problem before, i gone in to the BIOS no problem!!!
Can someone help me please?? Thanks!!!

hello

hoping anyone can share their knowledge about it

A:warm-reset / cold-reset

a warm reset is when you push the reset button, and the computer starts up again, without the power going off. A cold reset is where it shuts down and turns off, ie powered down. The difference is that memory etc may hold info in a warm, but probably not in a cold

Usually a BIOS update is the FIX for a constantly runnng fan not the CAUSE.  Please confirm that you do indeed have the newest BIOS version.Type:  msinfo32   into the windows desktop search bar and click the 'System Info' utility.Under system summary check the BIOS version.   If you found my answer helpful please say thanks by clicking on the Thumb's Up icon.       If my answer solved your problem please mark it as the Accepted Solution.

@Governor242? Contact HP and they should be able to send you a customized SMC.bin file which you can use at boot to reset the password. http://welcome.hp.com/country/w1/en/contact_us.htm??l When talking to the HP rep ask them to escalate your service request. Or download these files. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/zu4kdgxm052l87d/AAAMi-k??fX4AVH8oTCbsOM4X9a?dl=0 Insert clean USB flash drive. Then run USB Image tool. Choose the flash drive then click on RESTORE. After restore remove flash drive. Insert flash drive into locked laptop and boot. ?If HDD is installed remove before booting.? At C:\OUTPUT   type CD..   ?Then hit enter? Type HPBR   ?Then hit enter? First thing is to save your settings. Select #3 re-program. Press ?S? to save system information. Type HPBR and hit enter. Select   ?FIRST RUN? Then select model. After reboot repeat same as above but this time SELECT ?SECOND RUN? Some instructions here. ?If you cannot boot from USB there are instructions to make a bootable HDD.? http://mazzifsoftware.blogspot.com/2014/01/hp-bios????-unlock-for-dos.html More here. http://forums.mydigitallife.info/threads/49497-HP-????Probook-Elitebook-BIOS-Password-Reset-Utility REO I must inform you that these services are not endorsed by HP, and that HP is not responsible for any damage that may arise to your system by using these services. Please be aware that you do this at your own risk.

Do you have this installed? If so, it is the cause of the BSOD's. Try removing it and see if the BSOD's stop

Hi All, I want to use an additional SSD in my HP Elitebook 820 G2 and look now for the new M.2 SSDs which should fit into the additional M.2 slot . The SSD should be a M.2 form factor with 2260 and just with M-key interface. The disk size should be 120 or 256 GB. Did somebody do this with a HP Elitebook 820 G2 laptop or can recommend a SSD which should work? Thanks in advance TUAN

I need to reinstall my Elitebook 745.The disk have been formated so I don't have any recovery partition anymore.The pc have only usb 3.0 ports and no dvd-drive. I want to reinstall it with my USB3.0 voyager GT from corsair. I have made it bootable and copied all installation files from a dvd to the usb-stick.When it boots up and I try to start the installation - it doesn't find the files on the USB. (Actually the usb-stick isn't recognized at all). I have tried to add the usb drivers into the boot-file, but that doesn't help. How can I get this to work??

I am having issues installing Win 10 x64 to my HP Elitebook 850 G3 from MDT.   The issue is the NIC driver.  It will boot into the Deployment Toolkit, but will nto connect to my deployment share, stating that there isn't a driver installed for "pci\VEN_8086&DEV_1570&SUBSYS_8079103C&REV_21", which is the L1219-V NIC.   I have used the drivers from Dell for the 1217, I have downloaded the drivers from HP for the product, and I have tried the HP Client management Driver Pack to no avail.   Anyone have success with an 850 g3 via MDT?
