Hello,My half a year old HP Spectre X360's touchpad isn't allowing me to click. I can tap it and it works, but when I change it to clicking in the Clickpad settings it doesn't work. Any ideas why or how to fix it?Thankshttp://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Video-Display-and-Touch/HP-Spectre-X360-Touchpad-isn-t-working/td-p/5823105
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.)
hi i recently bought HP Spectre x with highest specs an d i'm facing some real serious issues with the touchpad clickpad as many others in this forum and reviewers pointed out the clicks are not being recognized In my case I'd say it is around of the clicks don't get registered and I have to click again to make it work That is really frustrating and enough to make me come here and post this question I really like the laptop and this is exactly what I've been looking for but this clickpad is a real deal breaker I followed some suggestions on this forum and also tried some troubleshooting myself since i Spectre touchpad x360 myself is a support engineer but Spectre x360 touchpad to no avail I changed the synaptics settings to try and remove too much intelligence from the Spectre x360 touchpad touchpad and at least get the basic functionality right but i continue to miss the clicks I also tried replacing the driver with synaptic one but the problem continues which tells me that it is something related to the hardware piece than the software driver can someone here please help me with this if i hadn't liked the laptop i wouldn't bother posting here to try and find a solution i'd simply get rid of it and go with lenovo yoga pro or something else but this laptop has really high build quality and classy looks but probably killed by this buggy piece of hardware nbsp

Hi I purchased this laptop around 4 months ago and really enjoy using it. the touchpad has always been a little unresponsive, particularly on the two finger scroll but I have been patient with it. today the cursor froze completely. when turn on the laptop or restart the cursor appears on the screen. when I try to move the cursor using the touch pad it does not respond. when i touch the screen, the cursor disappears and never returns no matter what I do. I can navigate using the touch screen but my natural instinct is to use the touchpad so I waste lots of time instinctively going to the touchpad and then having to redo the action on the touch screen. I updated the Synaptics touchpad driver (tip from a related string on the forum) ... sp71089.exe ... but it made no difference. Please helpThanksFrankkk

Hello I just bought a new Spectre x - dx pre-loaded with Windows and I'm having issues with the Synaptics touchpad After a Windows update the driver was updated to version nbsp nbsp I have reverse scrolling disabled but for some applications the two finger scrolling (13-4101dx) Synaptics Issue x360 Touchpad Spectre is still reversed Applications like Google Chrome and Device Manager work fine the reverse scrolling is disabled However for applications like Windows Spectre x360 (13-4101dx) Synaptics Touchpad Issue settings Microsoft Edge and pretty much everything Windows-related it seems to be permanently reversed Also every time I restart my laptop all of the settings are reverted back to default nbsp Now on my HP Envy -j I have the same driver and I don't face the same issues with reverse scrolling being permanent on Windows-related applications However the settings do still reset itself after every reboot nbsp How can I fix this Will Synaptics be releasing a fixed driver for this or am I just missing something I absolutely hate reverse scrolling and only a small handful of my applications actually run with it disabled Solved View Solution
I have this same issue with my HP OMEN using driver 184.108.40.206, windows update says this is the latest driver. Scrolling remains inverted in some apps/settings. I fixed this issue by reverting to an older driver (220.127.116.11), scrolling is now uniform. Kinda annoying that I had to fix it this way, but I had to go the HP Omen driver/support page and download the driver for the synaptics touchpad (even though HP's website insists you use Windows update for Windows 10). I then had to install the old driver, go into device manager and roll back the driver to 18.104.22.168 - you have to do this otherwise Win 10 will just use the latest driver. After that you can change the setting in the synaptics clickpad settings and it will be uniform. This was what worked for me.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Video-Display-and-Touch/Spectre-x360-13-4101dx-Synaptics-Touchpad-Issue/td-p/5177190
I recently purchased the HP Spectre x360 with the i7 processor and the computer works great except when the touchpad randomly jumps to the top left of my screen and phantom clicks. I can not seem to fix the issue as I have the latest drivers installed. It makes typing very inconvenient and difficult as I have to keep re-placing the mouse where i was typing so it doesn't click somewhere else.

On my HP Spectre x360, the touchpad is still active when the laptop is in tablet mode. The keyboard is disabled as expected however. Is there a setting that can also disable the touchpad in tablet mode?
Hello, Did this happen Out of Box or after you owned the notebook for sometime? Is the keyboard itself functional as well or just the touchpad?

Does anybody know when HP is going to sort out the trackpad issues on the Spectre x360??? I have had two different Spectre x360 machines and both have been rife with trackpad problems, one went away for "repairs" and came back the same. Problems inclue 3 finger swipe up/down to show/close open windows not working, finger side swipes not working to switch between windows, tap to click unresposive and sometimes even mouse click opens notification center rather than what you click on!!! The trackpad on this "premium model" functions worse than a basic trackpad on a netbook. And beforesomeone from HP comments to turn off and on again, no that doesn't work, settings have been checked and all the gestures are set on, and yes all drivers are up to date. So seriously HP, when are you going to sort it out???http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Video-Display-and-Touch/Spectre-x360-trackpad-STILL-not-working/td-p/5650325

Hi, I recently recieved this laptop and when i have went to play a sound clip on youtube it has not worked i have tried using the troubleshoot audio but this said that everything is fine. This laptop is brand new. Thank you
Hello, I am sort of experiencing this same problem too. On mine, the sound would ocassionally turn off. However, rebooting my PC, or disabling and re-enabling the windows audio would temporary solve this. The latter might work for you, though the sound problem could occur at anytime again. To do this: 1. Go to computer management. Move your cursor to the very bottom left corner and right click, and access computer management. 2. Once there, click on "Services and applicaiton" and then "services". 3. Scroll down to "windows audio properties" 4. Click "restart" the service Again, this appears to work for me, though it might not for you. Additionally, I found myself repeating said steps over and over again because the sound would sometimes stop. Furthermore, the "DTS audio" application on my x360 would sometimes make this static-like noise problem. When the audio enhancements are in use, any sound produce through the PC would make a somewhat unbearable cracking noise, essentially making watching and listening to videos and music less enjoyable. Additionally, if you turn off the sound "audio enhancements" in DTS Audio the cracking noise will stop, but then the tradeoff is good quality sound for bad quality sound. I'd assume this problem has something to do with the "sound off" problem too. For now, I am waiting to see if there is a solution for this, hopefully a "PC update". If not, I might have to ship it in to HP to have them check it out. Lastly, I have read about other PC users fixing the "sound off" problem by uninstalling windows 8.1 and reinstalling/reverting back to windows 8. I have not tried this yet, but it could work. Anyways, I hope I was at least somewhat helpful.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Audio/Speakers-not-working-on-new-HP-Spectre-x360/td-p/4973173

Hi All, Just purchased HP Spectre x360 - 13-4007tu in Oct. Upgraded immediately to win 10 on receipt and updated all the drivers automatically via HP support assistant. Finnaly Got a chance to connect the notebook to my TV via HDMI. However it DOES NOT detect any external monitor except the built-in in the "graphics properties" -"select display". But when I connect to my old lenovo laptop, it picks up the same setting ( TV via HDMI ) straight away I have double checked all windows / Hp updates all latest ; go back and give a few tries and still no-go. Please help as to say the least i am very dissapointed of HP for such a high-end work machine. The audio has been buzzy and scratchy but not crucial, whereas HDMI is for any presentation etc. Thanks for your help.
Hi @melfes?, Thank you for your query. I grasp that you are having a difficulty connecting a TV via HDMI to your notebook. You have done all your Windows updates and ran the HPSA. Here is a link to the HP Spectre x360 - 13-4007tu Software and Driver page to manually check that you have all the updated drivers and the latest bios update. Here are two links that may also be of aid. HP Notebook PCs - Connecting a Monitor, Projector, or TV (Windows 10, 8) HP Notebook PCs - Updating the BIOS. A bios update does have the potential to cause damage. I suggest contacting HP support for assistance with that process. Please contact HP support at Contact HP Support. Please let me know the outcome. Thank you for participating in the HP Forums! We want to help you as well as others who may experience a similar issue as you.

Hi, I have a 7 month old HP Spectre X360 notebook and cannot get the backslash key to work with the built in keyboard or touchscreen keyboard. When i use the touchscreen keyboard & press backslash key, it highlights the Ctrl key on the touchscreen keyboard. When i press on the built in keyboard, i get nothing. My laptop was recently sent back to HP due to a power failure & returned repaired, so i don't know if this is occuring since it returned or was always like this. My setttings are English/Ireland and keyboard languages are English/GA and English/UK. Windows 10 64 bit with all the latest updates. Any help would be appreciated. thanks, Terryhttp://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/Spectre-X360-keyboard-backslash-key-not-working/td-p/5608945
Today after installing windows update (synaptics-pointing drawing), my sound has stopped working on my HP Spectre x360. I tried looking at the drivers but there are no drivers listed. All my sound keys on my keyboard are dead, it's as if there's no sound installed anywhere on the laptop. My laptop information is as follows: Product Name: HP Spectre x360 Convertible Product Number: N1R85UA#ABA In device manager I have Conexant ISST Audio and Intel Display Audio listed under sound, video and controllers. I think I saw another user had an update pushed to his laptop, I'm hoping there's a similar easy solution for mine to get it up and running again. Please advise.
Hi, Try the following. Download the Conexant HD Audio installer on the link below and save it to your Downloads folder. http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp77501-78000/sp77502.exe When done, hold down the Windows key and press R Into the Run window, type devmgmt.msc and hit enter. In Device Manager, expand Sound, Video and Game Controllers. Right click the Conexant device and select Uninstall - you should also get a prompt to remove the current driver, tick the box to allow this and then proceed with the uninstall. When complete, download and reinstall the Chipset driver on the following link. http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp72001-72500/sp72025.exe When the Chipset reinstallation has completed, restart the notebook. When windows has reloaded, open your Downloads folder, right click on the Conexant installer and select 'Run as Administrator' to start the installation. When this has completed, restart the notebook again and let windows fully load for a few minutes before checking. Regards, DP-Khttp://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Audio/HP-Spectre-x360-Sound-Stopped-Working/td-p/5797951

Hello, I've looked up how to get a stylus/pen to work now on the horrendous touch screen software for the newer x360s. I belive this is by installing a new HP FHD Touchscreen Controller Firmware Update firmware from your laptop's specific model. (Although I may be a few steps behind) The problem is that there is no touchscreen firmware update for my 4193nr model. My questions are: can I use download another 13 inch model's touchscreen firmware to make it work? Or will it be incompatible? But more importantly, CAN HP PLEASE RELEASE A TOUCHSCREEN FIRMWARE UPDATE FOR THE 4193NR AND ALL OTHER SPECTRE MODELS? Lastly, if you guys have any tips circumventing this and making the stylus to work without the firmware, I would be extremely grateful for any of your help.

Hey there, A couple nights ago the touchpad on my Spectre X2 stopped working. I have a feeling that a driver might be missing as I can't find one running on my computer, but I'm not overly capable at computers so I might just be looking over it. I tried downloading a driver from the HP drivers page but there were no drivers available for the touchpad, so I'm just wondering if it could possibly be something else. I did end up finding a link to a driver on the forums, and my touchpad worked for about 30 seconds after I installed it and then stopped working again. My laptop is a Spectre X2 DetachableOperating System: Windows 10 64-bitProduct Number: 12-a002AU Thanks in advance.
Hello @ah1995, Thank you for visiting the HP Forums! I understand that the touchpad on your HP Spectre x2 12-a002au is not functioning. Since the touchpad did temporarily work when you installed the driver, it isn't likely a hardware issue. Please begin troubleshooting with a hard reset. Once the notebook is back on, follow the steps from these touchpad document: HP Notebook PCs - Using the TouchPad or ClickPad (Windows 10) Be sure to post back with the results!http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Software-and-How-To-Questions/Spectre-x2-touchpad-not-working/td-p/5570020
Dear HP support,
the touchpad on our Spectre x2 doesn't seem do be working anymore-
I've read what's been suggested on another similar post. We're happy to perform this "hard reset" but how can we be sure we're not going to lose some data / create any additional problem on the pc?
Thanks a lot,
Hard reset will not affect data. I have done many, many of them. It is also not very likely to fix the issue, but worth a try since it is easy and free.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/Spectre-x2-touchpad-not-working/td-p/5670569
HI All, I have a 2015 HP Spectre (silver version). I love the computer for the most part. The keyboard and touch screen are both enjoyable. What I cannot get used to is the touchpad. I am having a myriad of issues with it. 1. When i use 2 finger so scroll on a page, it will sometimes delay to start, then go slow, when i slightly speed up my fingers it all of a sudden goes far too fast and slams to the bottom of the page. 2. On other pages when i use a 2 finger scoll it wont scroll it except for small jittery moves 3. Depending on the browser moving my 2 fingers upward will move the screen down, while others will move the scren up. I lke sliding my fingers down to make the page go down. On chrome this works, on explorer it does the opposite. Any advice would be great.
Dear Customer, Please update the Synaptics TouchPad Driver to Version 22.214.171.124 Rev.B.Please find the link to update touchpad drivers: http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp72501-73000/sp72875.exePlease refer the document about using the touchpad in windows 10 for more information.Link: http://hp.care/2cqlt1f 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.

I have just purchased a hp spectre x2 12" A005TU and the keyboard connects and works perfectly but the touchpad is unresponsive. when i go in to settings to check if the touchpad is on, there is no touchpad options under the heading of mouse and touchpads. i have run updates and nothing seems to fix the problem. any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Greetings, After installing Windows 10 pro from scratch into my old Spectre 13x2 (Product number: E9W92UA#ABA, Bios version F.20), I notice that all the touch gestures on the touchpad no longer works as it used to be. The gestures on the screen still work without any issues. The device manager doesn't show anything with a yellow exclamation mark. I search HP for touchpad driver but can't find any. Is there anything that I can do to restore the touchpad gestures or fix this issue? Thanks in advance for your time and help.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Video-Display-and-Touch/Spectre-13x2-Multi-touch-gesture-on-touchpad-stop-working/td-p/5688254
What's the difference between the HP Spectre x360 and the HP Envy x360? They both look the same.The only noticeable difference is that HP Spectre x360 has a Radiance Infinity display, while HP Envy x360 has an IPS display. Having the same specs, except for the display, why is the Spectre x360 more expensive than the Envy x360 ? Moreover, I thought that IPS is better than TN, which is my guess that is the technology used for the Radiance Infinity.
Hi, You've got few questions about those products. Well, come to a store and yoy can see the differences. Better still, you can buty 2 machines and compare. For build quality, the HP Spectre x360 is much better than the Envy x360 you can also find Pavilion x360 - we are talking about SPECS and BUILD here about plastics and metals about wood and gold.

Hi, my spectre x360 just out of warranty and will no longer charge the battery! Charger checked and working. When plugged into laptop, symbol appears to show connection but then states not charging. Battery nearly flat now but diagnostics state batter condition ok. Would appreciate any ideas to resolve please but I am not considered computer literate just general working knowledge!
Hi @ Roy1955, Thanks for being a part of the HP community. It is a great place to get your questions answered by experts .I saw your post regarding the problems with the battery. This could be a possible hardware issue with the battery. Kudos to you for performing the battery tests. Brilliant work was done. It may be a possible battery issue. However, I would require more information regarding this to isolate the issue correctly? How did you run diagnostics? Was it from The F2 UEFI diagnostics page or from HP support assistant?In the meantime, Please perform a hard reset first.Steps to do it:Power down the computer and unplug the charger.Hold down the power button and mute button simultaneously for 15 seconds to discharge static electrical charges inside the machine.Then visit this link to troubleshoot battery related issues: http://hp.care/2cqnxWZPlease perform these steps listed in the link mentioned above.Testing and Calibrating the Battery.

Hello nbsp Last winter nbsp purchased a convertible nbsp lenovo laptop The first one had faulty hinges I had it replaced on the same day I brought it in and the second one had faulty hinges and a faulty touchpad So I decided to ditch the cheaper computers and splurged on a HP spectre x from Best Buy I live kilometres away from large retail stores like this so getting back and forth is quite difficult Staples was very understanding about the Lenovo laptops however Best Buy told me there was nothing nbsp I could do when I described the problems I was having with my brand new HP Several months went x360 Spectre - Given Up HP I've by and I avoided using the computer as much as HP Spectre x360 - I've Given Up possible in order to avoid facing the mistake I made in purchasing it Eventually my old computer became completely obsolete and I had no choice but use this HP nbsp nbsp My problems were not limited in any way They ranged from an extremely annoying touchpad nbsp that sounded loose and made strange noises the fact that the screen was closing on an odd angle and the fact the the screen could barely stay open A slight touch or even shifting the laptop would cause the screen to move I could forgive these flaws if I had abused this computer or if it had received nbsp heavy usage however I barely even turned the thing on I contacted HP support and I must admit that they were polite friendly nbsp and had my return materials sent very quickly nbsp nbsp My first bad sign involving the shipping process was the fact that there were materials missing from the box they sent which I then had to find a way around myself My second issue is that they forced me to use UPS to ship it from a rural area with no local UPS dealer Then when it got back after well over a week my problems continued My touchpad nbsp has improved however it is still frustrating nbsp to use Even though I described my issues with the screen they did not appear to have even looked at it nbsp nbsp I am at the point now where I cannot go without a computer as school starts again in only a couple weeks and I need a computer I am extremely disappointed nbsp in the build quality of this premium product and I fear it may have turned me off from buying HP computers again nbsp nbsp For the same money I could have bought a variety of other computers with reputations of being much more helpful when it comes to these sorts of issues I really wanted to like this computer however I just can't bring myself to do it If a HP service rep reads this post don't waste your time in responding I have no choice but keep and use this product - no matter how much it's manufacturing flaws or the company behind it annoys me nbsp nbsp Kind Regards nbsp nbsp -N nbsphttp://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Video-Display-and-Touch/HP-Spectre-x360-I-ve-Given-Up/td-p/5736065

Hi,Two weeks ago I bought an HP Spectrex360. Two days after buying it while using the keyboard, not the touchscreen, it began to touch the touchscreen by it selft only on a part of the screen followed continuously.This happend alot while i was using the laptop so I went to the place of purchase and I changed it with for one of the same model. But this new one also it has the same fault, any recomendations of what should i do?http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Video-Display-and-Touch/Hp-spectre-x360/td-p/5796677
New owner of HP Spectre x360 - 13-4003dx here. I want to ask if the bottom of the laptop, the area above the fan openings where the FCC info/text lies, is supposed to creak when I press it slightly. I first heard this noise when I took my laptop out of the sleeve and held that area. At first I thought it was just rubbing against the sleeve, but after further examination, that is not the case. If this occurs with other models of the Spectre, it is a bad build quality, I am not sure which component is under there, but I want to know if the creaking noise is normal with only a slight press along the text area. Thanks.
I have the same problem but in the front, in the back of the touchpad... really annoying. looks like the lid doesn't have nothing to lay on and the aluminium is very thin. poor quality for such expensive machine.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Software-and-How-To-Questions/HP-Spectre-x360/td-p/4962570

My Spectre X360 is becoming extremely warm in the bottom upper left. It is to warm to have on my lap and I am worried about the computer becoming too hot. The laptop was bought only a month ago and I have yet to use it for any extensive purpose. Is this just a problem with this model or just mine? And is there anyway to fix this or will I have to buy an external fan?http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/Spectre-X360-i7-extremely-hot/td-p/5738550
Not sure exactly where to put this but here goes. Recently registered for a HP Student account to get a student discount on a new laptop. When on the student store home page there's a section for new student deals/offers which lists the HP Spectre 13-4108na x360 (i5-6200U, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD) as being £799 with £100 off. Problem is when I click to view the offer in the store or to shop for the offer I can't find it anywhere in the presented list of laptops, it just doesn't make sense to me that the product is listed and advertised as being on offer if I can't actually purchase it ...http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Software-and-How-To-Questions/HP-Spectre-13-4108na-x360/td-p/5764451

I recently acquired an HP x360 Spectre 15t (about 5 days ago). During charging I noticed that the charger plug is quite warm/hot. Using a laser temp gun, I measured the hottest point of the plug to be 152F. The average temp reading seems to run around 128F (scanning different points on plug). Is this normal for thie plug to be running at this temperature while charging? Thanks, WWhttp://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/Too-Hot-HP-Spectre-x360-Charger/td-p/5811407
I have the i5 version, and I experience the same heat issues as you guys described. Also, the area right above the F1-F5 keys gets really really hot after running anything even mildly graphics intense. Even simple 2d flash games will cause the fan to throttle up and that area will become extremely hot. It has been like this since the beginning. Other than the heat issue, I honestly have no qualms with this ultrabook.
Hi @odontomon, Thank you for visiting the HP Support Forums and Welcome. It is a great site for information and questions. I have looked into your issue about your HP Spectre X360 Notebook and issues with overheating and possible fan issues. Here is a link on what could cause overheating and how to reducing heat inside the Notebook. You could reset the BIOS with this document selecting the reloading the BIOS default settings. Which has helped others as it restores the fans default settings. Please let me know how this goes.

My spectre x360 is the skylake version and came with an m.2 ssd that supports sata 3. Does anyone know if the laptop would also support an NVMe ssd?
Hi, I think HP has stopped publish Maintenance and Service guide for this series but from my record, it only supports Support for single PCIe / SATA M2 solid-state drive configuration as storage (scope M2 2260/2280 DS solid-state drive) in the following configurations:? 256-GB solid-state drive self-encrypting drive (SED) supporting multi-level cell (MLC)? 180-GB solid-state drive supporting MLC? 128-GB solid-state drive supporting MLC Regards.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/NVMe-for-my-Spectre-x360/td-p/5765762

I cannot create a new folder on the desktop. Right click of the mouse pad does nothing. Shift Control N does nothing. This is ridiculous. Any help is appreciated.
Does right click work at all? Try right click on Start button and see if it produces a menu. Some people has experienced problems with their touch pad, try using a mouse and see if right click works.
I bought an HP Spectre x360 for college and everything was fine at first.... but for the past couple of months, my laptop has been having some real loud fan issues. Just by starting up the device with minimal programs causes it to whir very obnoxiously. I only have Skype, Microsoft Office, and a few other basic programs installed on it... is there any way to fix this?

I have a tiny little scratch in my Hp x360 Spectre in its metal body...How can I cover it?http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/hp-x360-Spectre-scratch/td-p/5819844
Hello, I just received my i7 model of the HP Spectre X360 today and after a short period of use on the computer the upper left corner of the body of the computer becomes very hot, so much that resting it on part of my body becomes unbearable. I had read up on the notebook before buying it and the only mention of any issue of this sort was in a pros/cons list in one review that merely stated that "the bottom runs warm." Thus I was not expecting this level of heat while using the laptop rather casually, as the most intensive thing I was doing was streaming videos. Is this normal for what I am doing on this laptop? It's not the worst problem but it is definitely worrisome as I am planning on using this laptop for the next four years or so. Thank you all in advance!
Hi @yiajiipamu ,
I have brought your issue to the attention of an appropriate team within HP. They will likely request information from you in order to look up your case details or product serial number. Please look for a private message from an identified HP contact. Additionally, keep in mind not to publically post ( serial numbers and case details).
If you are unfamiliar with how the Forum's private message capability works, you can learn about that here.
I work for HP
Unfortunately our machine is 1 year + 1 month old and they won't give us a break on the repair. They estimate that it would be $300. I agree with many folks on this topic that this is a design issue and they need to do a recall instead of having their customers pay to replace the faulty parts.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Boot-and-Lockup/Re-My-hp-spectre-x360-won-t-turn-on-at-all/td-p/5657463

Can i replace my SSD with one pcie?I updated BIOS to rev F.25 but nothing. Is there some BIOS configuration to do so that the notebook can see the pcie SSDs? Thanks for replies and sorry for my bad english Santo
Can you identify where you tried to put the mSSD by reference to the Manual here: Manual See p. 28. It uses M.2 SATA drives and if the drive you installed is a PCIe type it will not be recognized. AHCI type drives only as far as I can see. I know only the very most recent desktop motherboards will boot from a pcie M.2 mSSD.

I have exactly the same problem. I have bought my "Hp Spectre x360 13 inch, i7, ram 16, Hard 512 solid" less than a month ago from Bestbuy in NJ. From my first use, I found that it gets so hot after less than half a hours which my leg feels burning. I still didn't install a heavy program or compilers and I am using this laptop only for surfing the internet or writing text in the Microsoft word. Please help me for this issue.
My Spectre was heating up during idle. I use RealTemp to monitor temperature and set alarm for 180F. It was hard to catch the culprit, because it stopped as soon as I moved the mouse or keyboard to check. I finally used Process Monitor to track CPU during idle and discovered that it was Norton 360 which does aggressive system checking during idle. I like Norton and the way it checks and rates download executable files. Setting lower priority for Norton doesn't do anything and I don't really want to do that anyway. And I don't want to inhibit the system checking. So, now I leave my Spectre on my homemade vacuum pad during idle to solve that problem. *sigh* I need a way to throttle back aggressive programs as a function of temperature.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Boot-and-Lockup/Re-Spectre-X360-Extremely-hot/td-p/5735736

Not sure exactly where to put this but here goes. Recently registered for a HP Student account to get a student discount on a new laptop. When on the student store home page there's a section for new student deals/offers which lists the HP Spectre 13-4108na x360 (i5-6200U, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD) as being £799 with £100 off. Problem is when I click to view the offer in the store or to shop for the offer I can't find it anywhere in the presented list of laptops, it just doesn't make sense to me that the product is listed and advertised as being on offer if I can't actually purchase it ...http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Operating-System-and-Recovery/HP-Spectre-13-4108na-x360/td-p/5764451
I purchased an HP Spectre 15 x360 in March 2016 and have been struggling with freezing/lock ups since then. I have tried updating all drivers but this hasn't fixed the problem. Almost daily, the screen freezes, the cursor shows a "busy" signal, and Windows does not recover. I have to do a full shutdown and restart, and lose all my work. I haven't been able to pinpoint what is causing this freezing. This has been a problem since the laptop was first received, so I am wondering if there is a hardware problem. Thanks for any help/ideas you can provide.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Operating-System-and-Recovery/Spectre-x360-15-freezing/td-p/5843690
Greetings, I just bought the HP spectre x360 with the i7 processor, and I've tried over 100 times to register a right click on the trackpad and it has failed to do every single time. I have read several articles complaning about the width being the problem to the right click, but mine has failed to register. period. I went into the control panel to try to disable it then enable once again in hopes to it working, but nothing has changed. I have only been able to register a "right click" by holding down on the touchscreen which is fairly inconvienent. I would like to see this problem fixed because I do enjoy everything else about this laptop, but that is a major flaw for me. Thank you.
Hello, When did the issue start for you with the right click funtionality problem?

Hi all.I'm going to buy a HP Spectre x360. I've seen that there are three different products with (apparently) same specs but different product number: HP Spectre x360 - 13-4124nlHP Spectre x360 - 13-4132nlHP Spectre x360 - 13-4136nlDoes someone know something about the differencese between those?Thanks.
Hi, They are very close but NOT the same. Now, print the following specs and compare line-by-line. Can you see the differrences. http://support.hp.com/ca-en/document/c05218339 http://support.hp.com/ca-en/document/c05226593 http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c04939802 Regards.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/Differences-between-Spectre-x360/td-p/5794340
I have an HP Spectre x360 Convertible with Product Number K8P19LA#ABM. I want to use it as a drawing and sketching tool. I have read several reviews from other x360 owners and decided that my best option was to buy a Dell Active Pen PN556W to use. Similar qualities as the HP Active Pen (which are not sold on my country) but with better reviews. I have had no opportunity to use my pen, as it is not recognized in any way by the screen.I have also installed the Anniversary edition of Windows 10 with better Pen Support and it still doesn't recognizes my pen. My configuration is:Windows 10 ProPen and Touch Support with 10 Touch Points
Hi, Is Dell stylus support HP machines mentioned on its specs ? You are asking HP to support another vendor's product here. From my view: No HP won't support other vendor's products unless HP does not have equivalent products.Dell may be very happy for HP (or other competitors) to support its products, it will sell more and laughing to the bank.Regards.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Video-Display-and-Touch/Spectre-x360-stylus/td-p/5740938
I have had my X360 for about a year but just recently it's really running hot after a short time of use. I have turned it completely off overnite instead of putting it in sleep mode and it still runs hot. I have it currently leaning so there is absolutely nothing blocking the vents in the back and it's still super hot. What am I to do to cool it down and is there something that HP is doing to fix this issue?http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/Spectre-X360-Runs-HOT/td-p/5764736

Hi!I'm just experiencing some issues with my recently bought laptop. It is probably nearly 2 months old, and this is happening as I type this. I am charging my laptop and it's been, say 30 minutes since charging and the charger is really hot! It's keeping me warm in this cold winter I could say. Is there something wrong with it? Should I unplug even though it's charged up to 85% ... I have a feeling it's dangerous. If anyone has any advice, please let me now! Much appreciated,Sam

I just purchase a HP Spectre x360 and the HP Active pen from Best Buy. Great laptop but I have noticed that I need to press VERY hard before the pen responds. If I don't press hard, then pen strokes appear very light. When I cross H's or T's the cross doesn't register. If i put the laptop in Tablet mode, then I can get the letters to appear as expected. But when Writing on the screen in regular "laptop" mode or "Tent mode", the letters appear as "chicken" scratch I didn't find any settings for adjusting the Pen's Sensitivity in windows or one note. I would prefer that the pen behave more like a finger. Just more precise.
I've heard better review for the Dell Active Stylus (the one with aluminum top half). It has worked great for me and I heard it has better sensitivity.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Operating-System-and-Recovery/Hp-Active-Pen-Spectre-x360/td-p/4969129
Hello everyone,so suddenly and for reason my laptop (HP Spectre X360) stopped workin and it shows no sign of life anymore, the only led works now is the charging led, when I plug in my charger it lits in white that's it!! no other lights or any feedback from the pc!! it's less than 6 months old now and never had any issues with it before! I went to bestbuy and they said it might be the motherboard that needs to be replaced, so idk if anyone of you had the issue before? and if the motherboard has been replaced would I lose all my data? and do they even need to access my data to replace the motherboard??thanks,,,

I have an HP Spectre x360 with a 2 year ADP coverage. I purchased the laptop in US... but I am currently employed and working in India. My screen has got damaged and needs to be replaced, but the local service center is unable to verify the ADP care pack details in India. I purchased this laptop after doing my research that the product is marketed in India and will be supported here. However, now the local tech support is saying that the Family name - pike1.0 not available in India and the laptop cannot be serviced even if the ADP is avaiable. As per the ADP contract, HP Support can courier the necessary parts to the local service center and my laptop can be serviced. How do i resolve this issue?
Hi, Yes, they say the true, many HP laptops asre localized that means HP local can only help you (a) Order part)s) from original country and repair it for you or(b) You have to send machine back to the original country (in this case the US) for repair. Warranty or not, same rule. Please read (very similar to your case): ANSWER: You can call HP Customer Support or HP Authorized Support Providers for diagnostic purposes. If a hardware service is required, two alternatives can be offered: The part can be dispatched by HP Customer Support or the HP Authorized Support Partner within the border of the country where they are located. It is your responsibility to get the part from this location, move it to the PC, and to return the defective parts - when required - to the same location. Associated costs are your responsibility. The PC may be moved, under your responsibility and at your cost, to the closest country where HP has support presence, or any other country chosen by yourself (depending on the logistics network), in order to get access to the solution. When HP has no support presence in the country of use, all actions and costs required to gain warranty services are your responsibility.

Hello ,First I want to say that I tried contacting HP sales in 5pm they said that they are working from 8am to 2 am which is already a warning sign ...I am planning on buying HP Spectre x360 ash silver.I love how it looks and also the performance is really good for the money.My concern is that I have read so many complains of cracked screen from itself ( design flaw or uncalculated pressure on the screen or heating up too much , something is causing the screens to crack ...) Hp hasn't made official statement on this issue and so far I understood that the warranty doesn't cover it.I don't want to spend so much money on something that will break from itself and the warranty won't cover it.Is there someway to include this issue in the warranty before buying the laptop?http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/Warranty-on-HP-Spectre-x360/td-p/5634216
Twice today, my laptop set idle and all of a sudden it started to open windows like someone was hacking the computer. I turned off the wi-fi and it showed windows with scripts opening mainly on the left bottom corner of the screen. I bought this laptop 4 days ago and I've not loaded much on it. Has anyone had this problem? When I turn it to tablet mode it stops.

Hello Folks nbsp I have the nbsp HP Spectre x - t- CTO and have spent weeks trying to get my brand new HP Active Stylus to work with this brand new laptop I also bought a nd stylus to make sure the first one wasn't the problem nbsp I have spoken with five different tech support reps plus my case was escalated to a team of engineers nbsp Although this very stylus is listed as compatible with this laptop the word today from the engineers nbsp was that no I cannot use a stylus with my laptop there is no work-around and although there is a firmware upgrade for the model HP 13t-4200 - Spectre CTO x360 there is nothing for the model nor can they tell me if there is any plans nbsp in the works and that I am welcome to return the laptop for a refund and long as I do it in the next couple days before days after receiving the laptop nbsp Sorry HP this has been a nightmare with non-stop bad information and I think that you should publish on the website that a stylus will not work so that when people consider purchasing this model HP Spectre x360 - 13t-4200 CTO they will know that they can't use a HP Spectre x360 - 13t-4200 CTO stylus nbsp But we all know that's not going to happen because it could affect sales of the laptop nbsp If you have to have a stylus working on this laptop you should go with the Dell XPS nbsp HP Spectre x360 - 13t-4200 CTO Frankly I should have know better as this is my very first HP computerhttp://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Video-Display-and-Touch/HP-Spectre-x360-13t-4200-CTO/td-p/5773176
Hi after being bounced back to and fro from various departments of HP I'm still unable to get Pen support on my Spectre x360 13t-4200 model. I've came a few people that didn't have the firmware but were able to download it for their 15t series, but so far I get a failed operation when I try to install the firmware. The same pen works on my sister's last year's model. Attached is a screen shot. ANy help is welcomed as I'm a graphic artist, I need my active stylus functionality Please & Thank you. 13t-4200 13-4003
What is the name of the pen excact model number? I will see if I can locate drivers for it.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Video-Display-and-Touch/Pen-Support-for-Spectre-x360-13t/td-p/5696887

I SOLVED IT! After hours of pain, i can now use the built in soundcard with headphones, as well as the internal speakers. HOW TO: Edit grub config by doing:'sudo vim /etc/default/grub' Edit the line:GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash'" To:GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash acpi_backlight=vendor acpi_osi='!Windows 2013' acpi_osi='!Windows 2012'" Then run:'sudo update-grub' Reboot TWO times. BOOM! Sound works in headphones. The sound card is now in HDA mode (not I2S). To confirm, run:'aplay -l' and make sure you have the following in the output: 'card 1: PCH [HDA Intel PCH], device 0: ALC3242 Analog [ALC3242 Analog] Subdevices: 0/1 Subdevice #0: subdevice #0'I'm running kernel Linux spectre 3.19.0-21-generic #21-Ubixuntu SMP on Ubuntu x64. BR,Ingmar EDIT: Even the speakers are working, they were just muted in Alsamixer. Hallelulja!EDIT2: Added the 'acpi_backlight=vendor' parameter to the options line, based on @spano 's input. Thanks!EDIT3: Fix as pointed out by venividivici24http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Audio/HP-spectre-x360-on-linux/td-p/4980797
I have an HP - Spectre x360 2-in-1 13.3" Touch-Screen Laptop - Intel Core i7 - 8GB Memory - 256GB Solid State Drive and I wanted to know if I could upgrade the RAM in it.
Hello @Cepeda_Nicholas? I appologize but the RAM is not upgradable on the Spectre 13 x360 notebook as it is soldered to the system board and doesn't have additional expansion slots.

I am turning to you all, as I have been unable to get an answer from HP sales, HP tech and HP engineers refuse to give me an answer. Before possibly purchasing said laptop, I simply want to know how many nits brightness and what is the contrast ratio for the latest spec x360 15-ap007na 4k laptop.

On CES2016 the HP Spectre 13 X360 with OLED display was launched. HP said the availability would be at then end of spring ... well spring ends in a month. So I was curious what HP's progress is on this new version of the Spectre X360 laptop. I see that some of the 'older' types of the X360 are no longer available of have long delivery times, does this mean that all the focus of HP is in stocking up the new OLED type? Can HP please give a statement on the availability?
Hello,Hp production will start June6 2016, after this date you will be able to see the offer and order. Introduction date will be different based on country so depend country where you want to order.

I recently purchased the HP DVD 600s external drive to attach to the Spectre x360 laptop but am unable to get the laptop to boot from a CD or DVD. I've disabled secure boot in the bios and moved the CD option to the top of the list in the UEFI boot order. Please help.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Boot-and-Lockup/Booting-Spectre-x360-from-USB-CD-DVD-Drive/td-p/5723141
I purchased my HP Spectre x360 (i7, 8GB, 256SSD, Windows 10) two days ago.It worked perfectly until midday today when the touch keyboard icon in the bottom right of the toolbar began to toggle on and off for no reason. Simultaneously, the touch screen was unresponsive for the majority of the 13.3" display. When the icon is not toggling, everything works fine. This problem occurs (what seems like) at random times for random durations.I have done nothing outside normal use and checking to make sure there are no problems.My guess is it has something to do with switching from the various "360" modes and possibly the connectivity between the screen and keyboard panels.Has anyone else had similar problems?Are there any solutions already in place?

I've had the same problem as seen in 8 previous pages on this forum. My wife opened our 1 month old, $2000 hp spectre x360 laptop to find the screen had cracked. By the time we got the laptop to hp, the cracks had spread and some shards of glass fallen out near the origin of the crack at one hinge. Hp have deemed this as physical damage and quoted us $523 for repairs, on what without doubt was a defective screen. I can't even begin to express my anger and disappointment at both the quality of hp screens based on the 8 pages of similar issues, and the ridiculous quoted repair costs. I could buy a new laptop for less. With this level of customer service, I don't see hp maintaining their reputation of quality.

Hi Hoping someone can assist, I have a spectre x360 connected to a Samsung Smart TV via HDMI. Screen is recognised OK as the laptop screen flickers when plgging in, problem is that the TV screen suddenly goes blank (black) for no apparent reason then reappears, again for no obvious reason. Tried various different cables and different HDMI ports on TV and all behave the same, this doesn't occur at all when using other laptops connected to the TV using same cables. Doesn;t appear to be cable led either as wiggling cable and therefore port doesn't seem to affect either the black out or reappearance ? Help !

Oh what a wonderful day... brand new laptop... a HP Spectre x360 2-in-1 13.3" Touch-Screen Laptop - Intel Core i7. Got it at Fry's as a refurbishment. Got it home. Got it set up. Got all kinds of display problems after not more than a few minutes of operation. Why would I buy a refurbishment? Don't know... I'm thinking these computers with the touch screens and rotations are not ready for prime time. Returned it and got my money back. Not sure about the HP brand.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Video-Display-and-Touch/HP-Spectre-x360-Display-Problem/td-p/5588212
