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.)

Does anyone have any idea whether the new Kaby Lake HP Spectre x360 support any active stylus. I'm getting conflicting info from various sources. If not, can anyone suggest any passive stylus that is usable?

On the US HP store, the Spectre x360 with the 7th Gen Intel chipset is already available for purchase.I tried calling your sales rep who said he does not know when the new laptops will arrive.Does anyone have any info on when the laptops will be available for purchase?I saw you can already buy the Envy and Pavilion laptops with Kaby Lake, but not the Spectre x360.Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, So having a bit of a frustrating experience finding a working dock for the new Spectre X360 (Kaby Lake). I need something with PD (power in), HDMI/DVI or DP out (two ports if fine, one up to 4k), and a few USB ports. I've tried a cheap aukey one and though HDMI works it's buggy. I'm now looking at this guy P5Q54UT - HP Elite Thunderbolt 3 Dock 65W but not entirely sure if it'll work. A few pluggable docks specifically mention that HP is not supported or claim HP doesn't support alt-mode (for USB C) and PD 2.0 spec. Any guidance is appreciated.

Not sure if i'm in the right area but it's worth a try. I recently purchased the Spectre x360 w/ Kaby lake i7 and have encountered some difficulty loading Ubuntu. Specifically, no wifi or sound present. Is anyone familiar w/ a means to recognize these functions? Thanks

A:Loading Ubuntu 16 on New Spectre x360 Kaby

Hi Joe, You would do best to ask the fine folks at Ubuntu about your hardware ID's and compatability.Since its all new, it will take some time I'm sure, to bring new hardware into the OS.  I have the previous version of the x360 with Skylake. Mint-18 on USB runs fine on it, but that doesn't help your question.

 Hi @Amir8, Welcome to the HP Forums! I understand from your posts that you are having an issue with your HP Spectre x360 - 13-4005dx Notebook and the cracked LCD screen.  The new Panel will come with a display panel cable, microphones, hinges, webcam, and wirelessantenna cables and transceivers if ordering from HP. Other companies should be including these parts. I can not confirm any thing other than what HP does. Here is a link to order HP Parts, if you need it.

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.

Newer processor may have some new instructions that older OSs don't know about. Similar things were happening in the past. Seems like MS is not going to bother with updates to older windows to be compatible with newer CPUs but Intel may come up with some patch.

HelloNow I know that Dell might not want to give any information about this topic, but I wanted to ask anyway. I will without any doubt buy a new laptop before the end of this year as my current laptop is so unstable that it is a complete no go at any exam.Kaby Lake quad core CPU's will not be hitting the market before 2017. However the nvidia 1050/1050ti will, to my knowledge, be released in October. Also there has just been a significant(around 100USD) discount on XPS 15(and the old 13) on the Dell website. At least on the danish site.This leads me to think that a XPS 15 refresh with a 1050/1050ti might come before the end of the year? Is this possible or are there no doubt that a XPS 15 refresh wont happen before Kaby Lake in 2017?Best RegardsEmil

I have recetly purchased this product. I tried a Dell active stylus 750 AAGN with it which did not work with OneNote. Writing with finger works fine. I have read that Dell should work fine, and the problem (at least on spectre x360 15) can be solved by updating a driver or firmware. I was wondering if such a solution exists for the 13 inch model, and if yes, where can I get the driver/firmware from. Thanks

I have been searching for a way to make my HP Active Pen have pressure sensitivity in Photoshop for quite a while. It works in other applications, but I can't get a straight answer on how to make it work in Photoshop from others that claim that it can. Adobe claims I can change a brush's settings, but that does not register. Did HP not design this pen to be compatible or should I be looking into trading my laptop in? Am I missing an update or firmware? EDIT:Here's a video I found of the pen working well with Adobe Illustrator (which is also not working for me).

Hi everybody,
Last week I had to return the brand new 9350 QHD+ because of the coil whine noise. It was a real pity because I was in love with the rest, but it was simply too loud.
Now I am thinking again what to buy.
Is the design of the new XPS 13 Kaby Lake (9360) solving the coil whine problem?
If yes, I would prefer to wait and buy the new version.
I hope that someone from Dell can give me an asnwer here. Thank you very much in advance!

A:XPS 13 Kaby Lake: coil whine

This system is so new few if any users will have one in their hands.  
Other thing to consider if it's an issue -- Kaby Lake will not run anything earlier than Windows 10, period - no work arounds, etc.  It's Windows 10 or nothing (Windows-wise) -- if that's an issue.

My laptop decided today to stop recognizing the built in display, I've tried everything from a hard reboot to updating my bios and checking the driver for my on board graphics card. The touchscreen functionality is still operational and it can display through the hdmi (I'm using it right now) but it will not recognize that there is any display option other than the tv.

Also I tried troubleshooting through the HP support assistant thing and my graphics properties, neither came back with any identified problems.

Hi all nbsp so I am finally about to replace my Yoga Pro One of my main requirements is battery life for Battery Yoga Kaby vs 910 life Lake 710 trans atlantic flights I was initially looking at the inch which seems to be getting good battery life although reviews of the revised Kaby Lake are hard to find Now with the released I am also looking at that model nbsp Concerns with both models the Best Buy versions that have gb of the inch and both have QHD screens which I am assuming hit the battery for around an hour of battery life vs the FHD versions Also the FHD model in Best Buy is the i version I am thinking I could drop an extra gb of memory into that revision as I believe there is a free memory slot available and so I am wondering would I really see much of a difference in the Yoga 710 vs 910 Kaby Lake Battery life i vs i I do not do any HD encoding etc the most taxing activity would be World of Warcarft which I think should run fine on either at reduced resolution Last question on the is the SSD sata or PCIe nbsp Again battery life is a concern main usage for flights will be watching local video content both p and p nbsp Thoughts Patrick

I recently purchased the XPS 13 9360 (Kaby Lake) and have been using for a couple days.
I've noticed coil whine in the form of static sounds coming from the left side of the laptop, near the power connector.
There is very minimal noise when the laptop is on battery, where the noise is audible when your ear is next to the keyboard.
However, when connected to the power outlet the static becomes quite audible at a normal viewing distance. The static occurs frequently (especially when scrolling).
I tend to work in quite spaces with little ambient room noise, as I am easily distracted.
Is there a solution to resolving this coil whine issue? I feel like at this price point this should not be an issue (especially since is was well known in the earlier models).

Can someone explain what will happen if I try to run windows 7 on Kaby Lake? Will my computer explode? I understand that Windows 7 won't be able to use the new Speed Shift and Turbo Boost 3.0 technology, but will Windows 7 run at all? Also, I see after July
2018 critical updates will only be addressed for systems running on Skylake. So does this mean if I am running Windows 7 on Haswell I'm out of luck, no security updates for me?

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. Regards.

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 nbsp

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. (Windows 10)Battery Does Not Power Notebook or Hold a Charge.Hope this helps. Please let me know how this goes. To simply say thanks for my efforts, please click the "Thumbs Up" button. Please remember to mark "Accept as Solution" if this helps. Thanks and have a blessed week ahead!

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 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.

Anybody knows if it's possible replace the laptop's SSD with another M.2 but pcie? I have read in some forum on internet that's possible but i'm not sure because i bought a Samsung SM951 e i tried to mount but the notebook does not see it!!!!The laptop's M.2 connector is it compatible with pcie? 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

A:Hp spectre x360 SSD replacement

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. If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

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,,,

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

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.

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. Thanks.

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!

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, WW

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?

A:HP Spectre x360 LCD replacement

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. Source:   http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/bpr01266 Regards,

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. 

A:Re: Spectre X360 Extremely hot

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.

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 computer

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 ...

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.

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.
 

A:HP Spectre X360 with Windows 10

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.

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?
