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.)

i just bought an omen laptop 4 days ago with the following specs: intel i7-4710hq [email protected] ghz 2.50 ghz16 gb ramwindows 8.1nvidia gforce gtx860m ddr5windows 8.1 the problem is the fan,  it won't stop ..it so loud. Its like working so hard to cool itself but Im in an airconditioned room.I hope there are only some settings that I need to adjust ti fix this. Please help!!!

A:HP Omen Laptop's fan is so noisy

Enter the BIOS to check if the "Fan Always on" option is enabled.  Power button, tap the Esc key. In the Startup menu choose F10 to enter the BIOS. If it is, disable it.  Even if it is disabled, the notebook's BIOS will activate the fan when temperatures get to specified levels to cool the notebook down when you are playing games . It is safe to disable it.

In hp online stores such as Germany, US, the laptop is available, but not in UK. Is there a reason for this? If I decide to buy it from a different country, will they ship it with a UK adapter??

Very noisy fan. I am very concerned about how noisy the fan is in my new machine. It seems like the fan is on very frequently and often very loudly even when I only have a few things open. Is this normal? It seems embarrassingly loud when it's not actually doing any major processing. There was certainly no mention of this when I bought it at JBHiFi. I don't think I would have purchased it if I'd known about this noise level. I am not a gamer, I do lots of Adobe stuff, so the machine was recommended.

Just received my new HP laptop and unfortunately my function Keys are not working. I have scoured the internet and many people have this problem, and I understand that Quick Launch my need to be installed. However all download are for windows 7. When I try to search for my laptop (automatically or manually) it says my laptop is discontinued, which is funny as is only been out for 1 week ish.  Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Hi I have noticed that my new HP Omen laptop key sticks on games meaning for example in doom when moving my character will continue in that direction when I release the keys.  I thought it was the game itself but it's now happend in several games such as Doom, Doom 3 and Ark.  It doesn't happen all the time.  Looking around this seems to be a recurring issue with HP laptops.  Is there a fix as it renders a gaming laptop useless if your in the middle of a game and your WSAD keys suddenly go haywire.  I am really hoping this is a software issue that can be fixed.  Help.

I recently purchased the HP Omen laptop with the 17 inch screen. I have played WoW regularly on a desktop however I moved out of the country and wanted to keep raiding with my guild. Last night I had severe frame rate droppage and the game in general doesn't seem to be running to its full potential. Also the lower half of my screen seems to have glitchy horizontal lines while moving around. Loading screens take forever. I just feel like the laptop isn't running to it's potential, please help!

Hi my omen laptop have i7-6700HQ, Nvdia GTX960M, 16GB Ram and when i play games on it it does have some sudden lag which is due to the i7 turbo boost system because it from around 3,11GHZ it will sudden drop to 0,84GHZ or even lower suddenly which causes the sudden frame drop and temperature gets quite high even with cooling pads! Is there anyway to solve it?!?

Frustrated with trying to get my new Omen laptop to download the updates recommended by the "Support Assistant" device built into the system.  I try to install, click the download button and go away for hours and hours, when I return the installation is always still running, never finishes the task.  I let it run overnight once.  What good is a device that tells me to update software, but is incapable of completing the installation?

Hi! Just purchased my new OMEN laptop.  Had my IT clone my laptop that was having problems.  I did not buy this computer for gaming, I purchased it for graphics and speed for business use.  When my other laptop was cloned I chose to keep Windows 7 for now as I have Windows 10 on several of my laptops already and do not like it at all.  I will probably eventually upgrade but not at this time. My problem is (and I'm not sure if that it the reason) I want to get rid of this red keyboard backlight and change it to white but after searching for a solution it appears that it is not on the computer.  If anyone knows how to change the color now that Windows 7 has been installed I would greatly appreciate it. THXLadyauctioneer

Once i restart the laptop everything is back to normal. I Have included pictures below. Anyone know why this is happening? I have done virus checks and all the recommended updates.

Try connecting to an external monitor and see if the artifacts appear there. It will tell us if the problem is in the screen or the video chip.

The fans in my hp omen 15 have a lot of dist covering them. Im not sure if i should clean the fans with compressed air or by vacuuming the dust out. I dont want to take it apart, because i cannot do that without messing up the laptop. The fans are directly under the laptop. I havent cleaned it since I first got it, which was a year ago. Any suggestions? 

A:How to clean Hp Omen fans without taking apart laptop?

oelsayed What I use to clean my laptops is those cans of compressed air that you get in office supply stores. With the fans running, spray the air at the blades -- but from a few inches away.  Also, if there are vents in the case, spray the air into those, as well. Good Luck========================================================================I am a volunteer and I do not work for, nor do I represent, HP.---------------------------------------------------------------If my posts helped you, please click the Thumbs-Up symbol on my post to say thanks.If my posts solved your problem please click "Accept As Solution".========================================================================

Hi all, I just bought my HP Omen from Best Buy today, and after getting it set up, I installed Steam and Farcry 4.  I started it up, and it all ran smoothly, even on ultra graphics settings.  However, when anything big happens in the game (explosions, lots of enemies on screen, etc.), the game seems to skip and lag.  Is this something wrong on the laptop's end or is it something related to the game itself?  My desktop is able to run the game somewhat well.  Thanks!Jesse Bell

Recently, I bought XPS 9550 as my second laptop for video editing and gaming. As I tried to update GPU driver to the latest version, every game started becoming laggy and all the BGM or sound effect started cracking within few minutes. Although the problem can be solved as reinstall the driver from Dell support, the version of driver was too old to compatible with new games and software. e.g. Battlefield 1 required at least Nvidia driver version 372.70. Please provide with at least one update and fix the video issue in late 2016.
Current version on Dell Support
9550_Video_Driver_2MT60_WN32_10.18.13.5894_A03.EXE.
Release Date: 26 Nov 2015
 
Latest Version on Nvidia website
375.70  WHQL
Release Date: 28 Oct 2016

Video lag and cracking sound issue can be found in the video below.

A:XPS 9550 GTX960M Lag Issue with Latest Driver

The Drivers that you see on the Nvidia Website are the latest drivers available for the Nvidia GTX960M. Since the most graphics chipsets are custom designed for the computer, the version available on the Nvidia website may not be compatible/ tested on the system yet as they provide a generic driver update for that specific chipset.As to when the Dell website will be updated with a the latest tested and compatible driver, is hard to say as this involves through testing to make sure, customer's don't experience unforeseen glitches. But have you updated the system firmware and the chipset drivers to the latest version and patched the game with the latest updates.

I know this should be an easy one, but I can't figure it.

I use my HDTV HDMI tv and was having audio issues so i started enabling and disabling devices. When I disabled the Laptop audio, it disappeared from the list of devices (sounds). Now It does not show up and I don't know how to Re-enable it. Device manager doesn't show it and tried rescan hardware. Any ideas?

The only thing I did prior was making the audio on the TV the default, this elimated having to manually switch over every time I used it.

Try right mouse clicking in the body of the sounds window, this wil then give the option to show hidden devices.

Hi You have a couple of options as I see it please try these steps might help you to fix your issue. 1) Disconnect the Battery & Adapter then press & hold the power button on Notebook for 30 seconds then turn on the unit and check if the Wireless light turns on. 2) Go to Device manager then uninstall the wireless drivers from Network Adapter and restart the unit and check if the light turns on. 3) Try doing a system restore to the date where unit was working fine. 4) Please update the Bios & Wireless driver from HP website. 5) Click start in search type Recovery Manager then click on it select Yes on User access control then select I need immediate help then select Driver & application recovery select the wireless driver and install it then restart the unit. 6) If you are comfortable reseating the wireless card which will be on the back panel off your unit you could try this steps as well. If still you have the same issue then you need to call HP Technical support and get the part replaced.

I have a HP Pavillian laptop that has built in wireless capability. A month ago, I installed a Verizon wireless pc card (slide-in) and the software, so that I could go online when away from home. I decided I didn't like the service so I cancelled it and uninstalled the VZ software. Now I can't receive a wireless signal at the library. It will not allow me to enable the WLAN assistant so any signals nearby are not seen.

What should I do?

If you highlight that option then press Enter, does not an options dialog box appear?

The wireless connection that you are not using (wouldn't worry about it either). The firewall should most definately be set-up on your LAN...This is where you are connected to the internet.

help me pls.
my laptop keyboard broke down a while ago, as of now, i don't have extra money for me to be able to replace it. now im using USB keyboard only, since my current keyboard doesn't have a fn key in it, i can't open the shortcut for the bluetooth using the keyboard.

1. is there any other way to open/enable it without using the keyboard?
2. i also can't see the BLUETOOTH device in the Device Manager, is that normal?

**i can use my bluetooth before my laptop broke down. and i saw in another forum that if you cant enable the bluetooth physically, the windows will not detect it but the forum is abt windows tablet so im not sure if it also applies with laptops.

This is my first post here, so please excuse any mistakes I may make. My HP 2000 laptop isn't allowing me to enable my wifi. If I press F12, it enables and disables Airplane Mode instead of my wireless connection. I've had to do this before, and it was through the control panel I think? I'm using Windows 8 OS. Any help is appreciated,

A:Could not enable Intel My WiFi on my laptop

hi K. Sharath,
 
From this microsoft article, it looks like the Intel My WiFi technology is not compatible with the Intel(R) WiFi Link 1000 BGN card and is only applicable to certain types of Intel Wi-FI adapters.
 
To turn ON the Wi-Fi capability of the Lenovo Y460, you will need to:
1. Slide the physical wi-fi switch to the ON position
  - Link to picture
 
2. Press Fn+F5 to enable the wireless card (ensure Current Status is set to "ON")
  - Link to picture
 
Note:
The Lenovo Energy Management Driver must be installed for the function keys to work
 
3. If same problem, boot into the BIOS by pressing F2 on startup and ensure that the WLAN Device is Enabled.
  - Link to picture
 
 
Let me know how it goes.
 
Regards

You will need to download the drivers for the touch pad. As well as other drivers such as chipset drivers.

In the System Sounds, there is an option for device connect or disconnect. This will probably do what you want. You will have to assign a sound for those functions.

Port?g? R700-184
Part Number : PT311E-02Y01JEN

Hi,

Can anyone tell me how to toggle wireless on/off using an external keyboard for the R700 whilst it is on it's docking station?

We only seem to be able to toggle wireless using the built in keyboard (Fn + F8) key.

Also, is there anyway that wireless can be set to off as default at boot up? Is this something that can be done through the BIOS or perhaps by tweaking a registry key?

Grateful for any assistance.

:-)

A:Enable/disable wireless whilst Laptop is docked (External Keyboard)

may seem like a silly question, but why can't you simply use the laptops keyboard????? or is it just a niggly type issue that you'd rather use external one?

unfortunatley the R700 doesnt have a hardware switch for the wireless so its purely mapped to the Fn key which is a toshiba function, so an external k/b is unlikely to be able to replicate it

you can always disable the wireless through W7 network and sharing centre -> change adaptor settings, so few clicks with the mouse or even shortcut it to taskbar/start menu for easy access.

So, how do you allow acces from one computer to another. I've set them all up on the same workgroup.....what am I missing?

Hello,

Could anyone tell me the advantages and disadvantages of disabling cache writing on the priming HDD? Thanks in advance

A:Cache Writing - Enable or not to enable?

I think the default setting is usually to enable it?

I have a dim understand of it from memory. As I recall, enabling it provides slightly faster performance but has a slight risk of data corruption in cases of a bad shutdown--like from a power outage. It can also have consequences when using RAID.

The geekiest thing to do is to enable it, but use a UPS (uninterruptible power supply) to eliminate the risk from power failure.

Me? I've always left it enabled and haven't knowingly suffered any negative consequences.

Q: Omen

My new Omen will not boot from any of my USB2 flash drives.  I disabled Secure boot, enabled Legacy boot, and moved boot-from-USB to first place for UEFI and non-UEFI boot modes. It does, however,  boot from my only USB3 flash drive (a SanDisk UltraFit 64). It will also read and write USB2 flash drives, after Windows 10 boots.  Linux Mint 17, not so much.  

A:Omen

SOLVED:  After forcing the Omen to boot from a USB2 thumb drive from the F9 boot menu, it now boots from that  thumb drive successfully, without having to go back to the F9 or F10 boot menus. This worked for the 3 different USB2 thumb drives. YES!!!  (Is this some sort of security feature?) And if that was not good enough news already, I burned the latest Linux Mint version to my oldest, slowest USB2 thumb drive and not only did it boot fine, and recognize other USB2 thumb drives when plugged in, sound and video work properly.  (Such was not the case with Linux Mint 17 Debian Edition.) I'm going to LOVE this laptop ... !~}>

Q: Omen 17

Well you do not have a USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 port so your only option is a USB 3.0 port replicator. HP does not really make a traditional "snap down" dock for consumer models any more, incuding the Omen so you are forced to use a "port replicator" A true dock powers the laptop and can be used with a simple single snap-down. In this case you still have to conect the AC adapter and then the USB 3.0 port replicator.  http://www8.hp.com/us/en/products/oas/product-detail.html?oid=5278439 If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

About a week ago I got an update to Windows 10 and some of the HP utilities, so I updated everything and now the fans act really strange. They go to their max speed and then slow way down and then go all the way back up again, this repeats several times for however long I use the laptop. I've checked for running processes and nothing looks out of the ordinary. I've tried messing with the fan speed through the Omen control, but that doesn't seem to be able to lower the fan speed.

A:HP Omen Fan Issues

So it turns out it was the HP System Event Utility, I uninstalled it and installed a legacy version and it fixed it. I'm not sure what the update was but it made it so I could no longer control the fans through the Omen control at all. Oh well, my computer still runs fine, and I'm happy.

The fans run at near full speed when the laptop is turned on, before I even have a chance to open anything strenuous. It seems to be mainly the left fan that is on. The laptop doesn't feel warm, but I have tried turning the fans to maximum and back again to see if that helped, which it didn't. The fans have been recently cleaned because of the noise, but next to nothing needed cleaning when I got to them. The option to have fans always running in the BIOS is disabled.

Hi, The only option I can see that may be worth trying is to make sure you're running the latest bios version ( F.09 Rev.A ) as it mentions 'Provides improved keyboard behavior when games are played on the system.' http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp76501-77000/sp76810.cva You can check the notebooks current bios revision by holding down the fn key and pressing esc. If you are running an earlier revision, F.09 Rev.A can be found on the following link. http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp76501-77000/sp76810.exe If you're already running this bios, or it doesn't correct the issue, my best advice would be to contact HP regarding this if the machine is still under warranty - If needed, you can check your warranty status Here. Contact HP starting Here. Regards, DP-K

Hi there @PistisanWelcome to the HP Support Forums! It is a great place to find the help you need, both from other users, HP experts and other support personnel. I understand that you are having noisier than expected performance mostly coming from the cooling fan.

Suddenly I found damage near right cooler which is critical. When i listen to fans right fan is not working, some weird sound at the beginning and then nothing. When I turn my computer on, at the beginning it says that one of your fans are not working properly and it can damage other hardware. Computer performance changed dramatically. I am a student in London and I need my computer as it was before. So there is no HP repair centers in London.  So someone help me please. What to do  ? Where to go ? what you recommend ? I am OUT OF WARRANTY. Thanks in advance.

I recently got one of the new HP Omen laptops, Omen 15-ax000ne. This model comes with a 128GB SSD and a 1TB HDD. I'm looking to replace my SSD with a larger one. I did some research about the new Omen laptops and i found out this: some models have a 128GB SSD and it's an m2 SATA SSD, while other models have a 256/512GB SSD and it's an NVMe SSD.I checked my laptop, and it is indeed a SATA m2 SSD. Does this mean that only a SATA SSD would work in my laptop? Or could an NVMe SSD also work in the same m2 slot?

I am currently waiting for my Hp Omen laptop that packs an I7-6700hq and gtx 1070. I read that the cooling system for HP omen is terrible. Now knowing that my graphics card is a gtx 1070, how can I maintain playing for 5-6 hrs with high settings without turning my gaming laptop into a fryer? If it cant maintain a good temp then I might just consider cancelling the order and find a new laptop.

Hi, I've recently bought an HP Omen gaming laptop, and the PC was working fine. However, when I downloaded a file, it came packed with adware and malware, which really messed up the computer. So I did a recovery to the previous day, which seemed to have solved the issue. But, whenever I try to delete, access or move a file from the secondary hard drive, the PC freezes. The taskbar stops working, the start menu and the folders stop being accessible. But I can still open apps from the desktop. I've tried formatting and the problem still persists after a clean windows install. The CHKDSK says everything is okay: http://i.imgur.com/GrRsY74.png.Help :\
