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.

Hello. Does anyone know when HP Pavillion 15 Notebook PC product number: J1X37EA#AB9 was released?http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Software-and-How-To-Questions/Does-anyone-know-when-HP-Pavillion-15-Notebook-PC-product/td-p/5848955
Hi I want to instal one SSD disk on my computer. Do anyone now if it is Sata 3 port on this computer ? If it isn`t can I install Sata 3 port or do I have to chang motheboard ! Regards KOB32
Hi: Run this free hardware analyzer that I have zipped up and attached below. Run the file, close the summary window and on the left side of the window, click to expand the Drives section. Then click to expand the sata/atapi drives section. Click on your hard drive name listed there. The first line will be the Drive Controller spec. It will report the hard drive type running at a certain speed. For example Serial ATA 6 Gb/s @ 6 Gb/s. If your notebook only has a SATA II port, it might report Serial ATA 6 Gb/s @ 3 Gb/s, or Serial ATA 3 Gb/s @ 3 Gb/s.

I have tried twice to upgrade my HP Pavillion DV4 notebook to a Samsung 840 Solid State Drive and the two times it only shows a "J" while trying to boot. The first time I used the Migrate OS to SSD option in Minitool Partition Wizard. The second time I used the copy disk option, with the same result. Has any1 been successful in upgrading to a SSD? if so, which application was used? TIA.

[/B]I have had the notebook for five years; yesterday the following message:
NTLDR is missing
Press ctrl + alt + del to restart
When the user does the instruction, the boot starts and the message repeats.
I really do not want to do a reinstall of the operating system; if someone has away to reinstall just the boot tracks.
 Is this a virues?
 Is this the work of a hacker?
 Has there been an MS-XP failure?

Check this site out. How to fix: NTLDR is missing, press any key to restart Its long but should fix your problem.

I am considering buying this laptop at "Office Depot" today. In your expert opinion, guys, is this a good laptop for basic needs? I just need it for a small business situation. I have Office 2003 software to load on it. A techy friend of mine said I may want more speed on the processor but for $949 w/ rebates I think it's a lot of bang for the buck!

Hello,I was recently given a pavillion dv9821ea laptop which was in bad shape after being infected with a virus. I eventually had to replace the hard drive and at the same time I upgraded the operating system to windows 7 PRO 64bit. I was unable to save nothing from the origonal hard drive, no drivers, HP software etc and since I installed Windows 7, the laptop seems to have several problems including not downloading Windows updates. I connect it to the HP assistant, but this recognises the laptop and only gives me the choice of Windows Vista as the operating system for which to support drivers etc. I wonder if you could help me by letting me know if there is anywhere I can download Windows 7 pro 64bit drivers for this laptop? my wife and I are both disabled and it would make a great difference to me if I could have full use of this laptop. Regards. Gerald
Hi, Gerald: HP did not support that model for W7, and you should be able to use the Vista drivers from the dv9821ea support page except the BIOS and firmware files. Additionally, you can read this helpful dv9000 W7 upgrade guide for some tips on getting W7 to work just fine on that model. http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Operating-System-and-Recovery/Windows-7-Upgrade-Guide-for-dv60...http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/Drivers-for-Pavillion-dv9821ea-entertainment-notebook/td-p/5594190

Hello. I have a HP Pavillion 15 Notebook PC product number: J1X37EA#AB9 with Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4510U CPU @ 2.00GHz 2.60GHz, RAM: 12,0 GB, Windows 10 64-bits and in what comes to graphics i have Intel(R) HD Graphics 4400 and a NVidia GeForce 840M. I believe my intel graphic card is integrated in the board but the Nvidia one can be upgraded. Am I wrong or can I really upgrade my graphics card?
Hi, Unfortunately the Nvidia chip is integrated and not an upgradeable component - this is the case for most consumer class notebooks. Regards, DP-Khttp://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/Can-I-upgrade-my-graphic-card-in-my-HP-Pavillion-15-Notebook/td-p/5843097

I have taken the battery out an drained the power and then rplaced it and it worked acouple of times, but now that does not work at all. I will leave it for a week and then try and turn it on and it will work fine for a few days and then go back to having a black screen. I have changed the ram and that didnt solve anything, so i am looking for some advice. can anyone help. its is weird that it works sometimes and then goes out again. Model # pavillion g7-1167dx

hp pavillion laptop 15-p067ca model, purchased year ago, came with windows 8.1, was not updated to windows 10. seems to have a bug: on start up it welcomes me as a user "vladimir" asks for password and then hangs up forever with the white screen and unresponsive. Password I'm sure is right, because if I type different password, machine comes back with "Incorrect password" message. What do you think is a problem and how to go back to factory settings? I have not made a recovery disc. Any comp supposedly have a recovery partition, and Recovery Manager but how can I do anything if Window does not come up?

If you have (and should have) a USB keyboard and mouse connect them and see if they will work.
Since your file system was already corrupted you cloned the bad files to the new drive.
If the USB devices work you should do a Repair Install.
If that doesn't work do this: Using System Recovery, Factory Reset and Minimized Image Recovery Options HP Pavilion dv6-3225dx Entertainment Notebook PC | HP? Support
From this tut:
Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
On newer models HP Recovery may offer a Minimized OS Recovery option when booting from F11, which retains only the OS, Recovery Manager, HP Support Asst, and HP Wireless LAN. This is as close to a clean reinstall as you can get without doing one yourself.
● If you clean reinstall only to C and leave all other partitions intact, F11 Recovery key should still work later if you need it.
● You can also Extract HP 3rd Party Software from RecovCD.
● Problems with volume control lighting and HP Quick Launch buttons have been dealt with here where you can also get further support.

Sounds like it might be time for a reinstall to refresh the OS and overcome any lingering infection. Follow these same steps for Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 particularly when it comes to drivers and Updates.
Otherwise work through these Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 including the hardware tests.

Hello katrapezo. I understand you're having some trouble recording audio. Have you tried recording in another application such as Sound Recorder? I'd also like you to remove your audio drivers and allow Windows to reinstall them. Here are the steps.Click Start, type "Device Manager," and press Enter.Expand the "Sound, video, and game controllers" section.Right click on your sound card and select "Uninstall."Reboot your computer.Verify whether the problem persists.Also, what is your notebook's product number? This document can show you where it is located.Have a wonderful day.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Audio/HP-Pavillion-dv6-notebook-audio-recording-issue-windows-7/td-p/2737617

Several weeks ago I bought the new HP Pavillion dv9574ea notebook and the HEADPHONE SOCKETS do not work - there are two. Only the speakers work. Even when I put a working set of headphones which are the right size, I cannot hear anything through the hearphones. The normal loud speakers however keep working, although they should switch off when the headphones are plugged in.
Please see the screenshot of the drivers active (in system 32 folder) and other details about the headphone socket.
Thank you for any help.

After starting the Lenovo Solution center V3.3.003 it doen't show the serial numbers etc. of the machine. Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't.Is there another way to find out these numbers, except form crawling on the ground in a dark area with a lamp and a magnifier to determine the small print on the labels attached to the machine?

Someone I know has a pavillion 551w w/integrated video ( Don't know the chipset ) & I was wondering how to update his drivers so that he can run Google Earth ( It says " Rendering Page Error " , then kicks him out ) . He'd like to try updating before getting into a New Grafix Card , if that's possible . Any help will be greatly appreciated . Thank You !
check the hp site for updated drivers
you will find if you put a card in you will need to upgrade the power supply also
a friend gave me his HP DV6500 Notebook to fix it. He said it made an update and then for hours nothing happened. He shut it and started again.
I could see that it tried to recover 2 times. The second time it was successful but it somehow resetted or returned the Vista to a fresh install!!! His data was locked in a previous User account, I backed it up on a usb-stick with a linux live cd.
I can't make a reinstall because now a bluescreen always appears even when I boot from Vista DVD.
ntoskrnl.exe corrupt when try to boot vista in the normal way.
How can I fix that without being able to use the repair option of the DVD?
Sorry, the title of the thread is wrong. I figured out already that the BIOS version is for an Intel. So everything is ok with the BIOS actually.
Ok, I could fix it after following instructions from this page:
The Txf-log had to be removed and afterwards I was able to use the repair function of the Vista DVD again.

I had a gruesome activation issue with an embedded-key windows 8 Sony Vaio. I found in the end, Reinstall holding the assist key at startup, Do! connect to a wifi network, use a Local account, not a microsoft one. SLUI 04 or 04 wont work after the event. The BIOS 'Assist then F2' has a CLEAR or restore factory keys option, which i restored, even after that, SLUI nogo, I had also updated the BIOS and the Factory restore set using sony's update. SO, Activation only works during initial setup, not after the event !! take care,
Activation error 0C0000022 not 0x0000022 sorry.
If you wanted to install using a different key, use the BIOS CLEAR PK, KEK, DB and DBX function.
everytime i try to upgrade to windows 10 my labtop will not let me i have factory reset it but still will not work

According to symantic:
"DriveCleaner is a security assesment tool which gives exaggerated reports of security and privacy risks on a computer. The program then prompts the user to purchase a registered version of the software in order to remove the reported risks."
It may still be there, But I dont see it slowing down your download speed that drastically...I have a feeling theres more to this than just one hijacker...(Removal instructions are on symantic page...I dont like them since they have you manually modify the registry...)
I would suggest posting a Hijackthis! log and let the HJT go over it...Someone around here might be able to give you an easy way to get rid of drivecleaner without having to modify the registry.
I was wondering if anybody could help me with this problem. My Notebook came with Vista and basically I am sick of it. I wanted XP, because it's just better. Anyway, I am not sure whether or not there is an XP driver for the Wireless card... I am not even 100% sure what wireless card it is, I believe it's Atheros but I can't seem to get any of those drivers to work. Maybe I picked the wrong one, I am not sure, can anybody provide some information on how to get my wireless card for this notebook to work in XP.
Thanks a lot!
(I am currently running off a Linksys USB, however, I want the wireless card to work because I need this drive for another computer.)

Doesn't immediately point to anything but you could try a memory test first to eliminate that
By the way how old is the power supply?
I had AVG on my HP Pavillion dv521 6cl Laptop Windows XP but after a system restore my antivirus must have been renamed and my system could not recognize it. So I did an undo system restore in order to locate my antivirus and uninstall it in order to system restore again and get my system working again and install antivirus again. The first thing that occurred now was it became nearly impossible to restore because it was not recognizing any dates that were in bold, as OK to use. After many tries I did restore to an earlier time. Since then over a month ago, I'm unable to install antivirus on it.I tried avast, AVG,several others. Nothing happens.I ran the test for the conficker worm and didn't have that. I have no clue what to do now. Thank you for any suggestions.
You will have to make sure AVG is completely uninstalled first. Try the AVG Remover.

I purchased a new notebook with Windows 7 in October. During the first weeks I uninstalled McAfee and replaced the harddrive. Since November Windows Update fails with error messages and defender does not start anymore. I made several virus scans (complete) with multiple antivirus programs but nothing showed up.Since it took my days to install various software, I do not want to re-install W7. I also have no good backup that I could restore. I am really surprised that there is not even a single entry regarding the error code in the Microsoft Knowledge base or elsewhere.I really would appreciate help.
Got it !!!!
If You are using notebooks with with hard drive larger than 700 GB you probably should update Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver.
Here is solution :
Download and install it.

I just did a FRESH install of WIN7 on a new partition on my hard drive which has 2 other partitions with separate systems. I am having difficulties getting the WINDOWS UPDATE to work correctly to bring this FRESH install current. Attached is my CBS log that is compressed.
I already downloaded the "SYSTEM UPDATE READINESS" tool: Windows6.1-KB947821-v34-x86. It is currently running & searching for updates which I doubt will find any if nothing has been downloaded. I have also downloaded : "MS Fix It" http://go.microsoft.com/?linkid=9665683 in aggressive mode. I have not tried this yet. I am waiting for the READINESS tool to complete its job.
Is there anything in my CBS log that indicates problems? What else should I try?
Appreciate any assistance

Hello everyone,I have HP Pavilion DV2 Notebook PC I want to update bios, every time I try to update HP Pavilion DV2 Notebook PC Bios when installation process complete 10 second restart countdown start after completion of countdown then computer shutdown and nothing happen everything is normal as before, instead of restart and successful Bios update. I've tried to update Bios in both Windows 7 and Windows Vista but it doesn't work.Please help me to successfully update Bios of my HP Pavilion DV2 Notebook PC Thank you,
Where did you get the update instructions?Was it from CH?http://www.computerhope.com/forum/index.php?topic=95924.0The above link is rather old, don't expect it to be up to date.Instead, search the HP site for the BIOS update for your HP.www.HP.comhttp://www.computerhope.com/forum/index.php/topic,158340.0.html
I tried updating the BIOS of my Sony Vaio CS-17G notebook to the latest updates given at the Sony Support Website.
Everything went fine, got message 'BIOS updated successfully', 'Press OK to shut down.'
Pressed ok & now nothing's okay. The system is not booting up!
Tried the following troubleshooting, but no luck;
1) Pressing F2 & F8 keys.
2) Disconnected the AC Adapter, removed the battery & pressed the power button for 60secs.
Still under warranty?

My internet packages is supposed to deliver a speed of 240 Mbps but I currently get around 80 Mbps. I was told that's because my network card only support 100 Mbps Half and Full Duplex, so in order to get higher speed I need to update or upgrade my network card to be able to received 1000Mpbs. How do I do that? Thank you for your help.
Please check the specs of your pc : http://support.hp.com/us-en/product/HP-15-Notebook-PC-series/8499326/model/9061043/manualsif your using the wifi 1x1 you wouldn't be able to get a high speed as the 1x1 delivers the most basic internet speeds.if the issue is related to network adapter/wired internet - i suggest updating the drivers as any standard network adapter should provide 100mbps speed, if you don't get the same speed, contact HP @ 1800-474-6836 to get yourseld a replacement network card.

I have an HP Pavilion dv6 7080ee and i ran into an incident where the BIOS got corrupted. I have been trying to recover the BIOS for a while and HP has added a new BIOS Utility F.2D Rev.A but when the utility is launched, all the options are grayed out. And Is there any other way to recover the bios? Kindly advice.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Boot-and-Lockup/HP-Notebook-System-BIOS-Update/td-p/5668759

Hello. I have a Win8 notebook bought new some days ago.
The problem is that when I try to update the OS with Windows Update, it stuck on "Download in progress" 0% for minutes and hours.
I also tried to remove all useless process, also closing Anti Virus, except that of Windows with Msconfig, and also with a sfc /scannow, but nothing change. I tried with both Wi-Fi and wired connection.

I have attempted this BIOS update from the HP Support Assistant multiple times. The process appears to compelete sucessuflly. But as soon as I continue, HPSA keeps showing that I need to install it. Please advise. I've also attempted to install directly from the download. Same result. The update also does not show as a completed item in my HPSA Action list.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/HP-AMD-Notebook-BIOS-Update-SP76353-not-installing/td-p/5713988
After update and restart (update wich I presume included BIOS update), my notebook booted the windows for 5 minutes, then turned off in an instant. After that, when i pluged the power adapter the power led started to blink continuously (white light), and the notebook reused to start (no power, no other led', no nothig, just the blinking of the power light). I've tried to reset It (battery off, 15 seconds power button and all, I even removed the Bios battery). It's not the first time. The last time when It happened, the problem resolved itself after several days. The blink stoped and the window was booted Ón safe mode.If you have a technical solution please help me, because I can't wait for several days.Thank You!http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Boot-and-Lockup/After-Bios-update-the-notebook-doesn-t-boot/td-p/5847070
Hi, The BIOS update using HP Support Assistant fails. When I try to install the update manually, it crashes, and killed my HDMI port. It appears that the Bios is locked, and the option to selsct that option is greyed out. As such, I can't iupdate the BIOS - and CPU performance has been an issue I was concerned about. It'd be GREAT to install this update. Any ideas? Thanks! - MT
Hello @elixirrr, Thank you for posting on the HP Forums! I came across your post and want to help you update the BIOS for your HP Envy m7. Before attempting the update again, try restoring the BIOS.

Rturner9314 Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!You don't say what Model laptop you have, but my guess is that it did NOT come with Win10 preinstalled. Is that right? And if so, did it come with Win7 preinstalled or Win8x? Asking because MS recently pushed out their Anniversary Update and, as evidenced by LOTS of postings on the Win10 community forum, and here, that has been causing serious problems with folks whose Upgraded PCs worked fine with the older versions of Win10 (i.e., 10240, 10587) but not with this new version (14393).We can proceed once you provide the answers. And NO, a BIOS update is NOT going to address this problem; plus, unless you have a very new PC, there is no BIOS update available for it.Thankshttp://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/Notebook-Keyboard-not-working-Bios-Update/td-p/5788027
My brother gave me a brand new ASUS X55 notebook computer. Never used. In box original packaging and everything. I have been using it for a few weeks. On several occasions when I turn it off it will prompt me to update and turn off. When I turn it back on it will configure windows get stuck at 96% and revert changes. The current OS is Windows 8. Can someone help me figure out what is going on here? How I can stop or disable it? Will it affect any future windows updates? Thanks!http://www.eightforums.com/windows-updates-activation/69804-asus-x55-notebook-problem-windows-update.html

I've tried to install this update multiple times. Both from HP Support Assistant and after downloading the file directly from your support page and installed it as an administrator. After restart, the update is still visible in the Support Assistant.
Hi, Whats the current version of your computer's bios and whats the version you are trying to install?
