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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:How to install UEFI on Pavilion G6 1001tx

Here is the link to download UEFI: This package provides the HP UEFI Support Environment version in supported models that are running a supported operating system.UEFI and Custom ImagingThe HP PC Hardware Diagnostics UEFI must be run from a FAT or FAT32 partition with a partition name of "HP_TOOLS" or "EFI".This installer will give you the option to install to the HDD or a USB drive.If you install to the HDD and the HP_TOOLS or EFI partition is not present, the installer will prompt you to create the partition.If you install to a USB drive, the installer will rename the partition on the USB drive to HP_TOOLS.If you use a custom image, you can create the HP_TOOLS partition manually with type FAT32 and make the partition name HP_TOOLS.Caution- The HP_TOOLS partition is not protected and can therefore be deleted.- Backing up the computer using the Windows® Complete PC and other backup software does not back up the HP_TOOLS partition.For these reasons, HP recommends that you do not place additional data on the HP_TOOLS or EFI partition. Because the partition is not backed up, corruption or failure of the partition will result in loss of all data on the partition, plus loss of UEFI functionality.You can find more information on

Hi, You can't overclock your PC. HP PC's manufactured 10 2011 typically have a legacy BIOS. Check total memory in BIOS. It should be 16GB. Do you have integrated graphics? This will use system memory causing Windows to report less usable memory. An 8Gb difference is really big. Graphics usually use 2GB to 4Gb.  Also, are you referring to free RAM while viewing Task Manager or usable RAM which can be viewed in Control Panel, System? Cheers!

A:My HP dv5000 Pavilion Notebook is failing to recognize the internal CD-ROM drive.

If Device Manager doesn't even show the drive there is a good chance that it has died. You can look in BIOS. In a Phoenix BIOS where you usually want to look is under Main. You should see your HD and maybe the CD drive. Settings should be on auto. If the CD drive isn't there it probably needs replacing. With a laptop you could take the drive out and put it back in to make sure you have a good connection.

Does the motherboard ( pegatron memphis s ) have the extra SATA plug and does the power unit ( 300 watt ) have the capacity to add something like a Barracuda Seagate 7200.10 HD? I called the help desk and was bounced around to 4 people and they could not answer these questions. And I guess I should ask if there is a place to attach the HD so it is not loose. I have two of these hard drives and would love to put them to use as a back-up internal hard drive, if possible. I am aware that I can kit them to be external HD via USB. Thanks, Mike.

A:will a HP Pavilion 15-n034sa motherboard fit into a HP Pavilion 15-n083sa ?

Actually that's a hard question, generally its not possible to install another motherboard, sometimes it is. In this case one is an AMD platform and the other is an Intel platform, there could be tons of differences in mounting holes, physical design, clearance, connectors, heat dissipation requirements, cooling systems, etc. Laptops are not like desktops that use more standardized designs.

My HP Pavilion 500-205t was destroyed by a lightning strike. The HD is o.k. I have purchased an HP Pavilion 500-490 because the specs were very close.  I  want to use my 205t HD. Both computers are Core i3-4130, have 1 TB 7200 SATA 6G 3.5 HDs, same OS (Windows 7 Pro 64). My question is:  can I swap them out, or do I need to get an external HD enclosure and copy the 205t to the 490?

Hi to all,
I recently bought a Scan internal card reader, installed it, my PC recognized it, installed the drivers automatically, also a windows update was available for the card, installed everything & seems to work fine. The reader recognizes all the cards i give it including the USB, however I cannot manage to see the usual removable drives an internal card reader usually displays when it is attached to the PC.

The drive only appears when a card is inserted, is this normal?

Thanks for your help..

That's not 100% normal, but that's even better than the usual 4 drives hanging around for no reason in the Computer window... I think so, at least. If the reader works, don't worry about it.

Hi, The error 'Primary (internal) Battery (601)' does indicate that your notebooks main battery ( not the cmos battery as the error tends to suggest ) is showing signs of wear and you may want to consider replacing it - the 601 error typically occurs when the storage capacity has fallen below 25% of its original value. Further information on this can be found on the following HP document. This is a warranty item, so if your notebook is still covered, contact HP and arrange to have it replaced - If needed, you can check your warranty status Here. If you live in the US, contact HP Here. If you are in another part of the world, start Here. Regards, DP-K

Have a message that says A component of the operating system has expired.  With error code 0xc0000605  and is asking for recovery tools, which I dont have where can I get them????

A:pavilion 23

>  A component of the operating system has expired.  With error code 0xc0000605  ... A did a Google-search on that code.  One posting suggested that the date/time in the computer's "BIOS SETUP" was wrong, and needed to be corrected.Reboot, and enter "BIOS SETUP", and check. Another posting suggested that your computer is running a "Windows 10 Preview" version, rather than the "official" release.  Is that correct?

My wife's HP Pavilion has hit the bunk, or so it seems.

It's a four year old laptop, which has been suffering from serious spyware problems for a while. Before it quit, I ran Panda active scan on it, and it detected 200+ malware infections. When I tried cleaning out Temp. Internet files, cookies, etc., IE would freeze and not respond.

Then - the mouse quit on logon. So, I thought, I've had it, time to reformat and reinstall manufacturer software. Which I did, only to find out that on boot-up mouse and keyboard both refused to respond. Not good.

Ran the diagnostic utility, which said something about RAM being set wrong, and then point out some non-specific "board problem".

Does anyone have any idea what this is about, before I reach for my biggest sledge hammer and have some quality time in my backyard with this piece of junk? :suspiciou

A:HP Pavilion

download Spybot search and destroy and ad-aware.
run both.

panda anti-virus sucks. Use norton or mcafee.

consider using an alternate web browser like mozilla or firefox. They're less prone to virus and trojan attacks.

hey, i've had a hp detachable pavilion x2 for a week or so, it came with 8.1 on it and i wasn't going to upgrade to 10 but thought sod it and upgraded earlier and now my mouse touchpad randomly stops working, the mouse pointer disappears and the keybooard stops working, i have to use an on screen keyboard and use the touch screen to get around

it says it is a ELAN touchpad, i've spent over an hour now googling this issue. all signs are pointing to it being a driver issue after a windows 10 upgrade yet i haven't seen an actual fix anywhere. can anyone point me to a link of the driver that i need please before i throw this thing into the street

elan say to contact manufacturer yet HP have nothing on their website unless i have completely missed something obvious. please help

A:HP Pavilion x2

If you go to the linked HP page and enter your product number, you should be able to find the HP drivers for your touchpad:

If there are no Win10 drivers, then you should not have upgraded to Win10, because not every HP machine running Win8.1 is upgradeable to Win10 without problems. You could have checked the compatibility on the HP site prior to the upgrade.

Hiya morgansssss,

Right mate do you have all the Quickplay software. If so all you need to do is goto Start, Computer, Devices, Hardware. At the top of the page you will see System Devices. Click it.

You will then see a window just like XP. Hit the hardware tab then scroll down to the USB line.

Once there you should see "USB composite device". Right click on it and choose Enable.
There will be a pause as the device is enabled.

You will then need to scroll up a little and find "imaging devices". Right click on "HP Webcam" and enable it.

That should sort it out. If not let us know.... Hope that helps. Peace

Could be the connection, or something broke like the actual speaker, one of the wires, or the circuit board/adapter/plug for the speaker.

Would like to pose this question and see if any of the group can assist me.

I currently image our new CPU's with a secure image of Windows XP Sp2. Our computers (desktop and laptops) mainly consist of Dell's and images work fine thanks to our information management staff. However, our director has an HP Pavilion dv8000 notebook that I cant get an image to take on it. It just goes into a cycle of choosing safemode or boot normal.

The weird thing is, I have an option at the start of the image to choose "network" or non-network (stand alone) and the stand alone image works fine.

Are they any settings on this HP that I need to turn off or on for the network image to work?
