Q: HP Spectre X360 wifi does not connect unless I restart my Mo...

So I have had this HP Spectre for about a year now and it does not connect to my home internet unless I restart the modem. I restart the modem and it will work for a while. If i ever turn my laptop off or sometimes even close the laptop the internet will not connect and I will have to go unplug and replug the modem. This is extremely frustrating especially because of how expensive this thing was. Samsung Galaxy, siblings mac's, siblings iphones, even my Xbox One all connect to the internet but it is only this computer that always has a problem. I moved away for a couple months and at the house I was staying at my laptop connected to the internet with no such problems. I'm kind of assuming it's some kind of problem with this laptops adapter and my internet but that makes no sense because my internet is fine with all of my other devices. I have the latest LAN driver installed as well. This is a rather annoying problem and any insight would be much appreciated.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

My Spectre x360 will not connect to my home network after I have restarted it. The connection will work if I power the machine down, and then turn it on. Or, if I restart it, I have to close the lid (enter sleep mode) and then open it again to connect to my network. I have tried installing the updated drivers provided by HP as well as Intel for the wireless card, but neither of them solved the issue. The SSID for my home network is not broadcasted, and I have the option selected to connect to the network even if the name is not being broadcast. I've also tried unchecking the setting to allow the network adapter to be turned off to to save save power, as well as unchecking fast startup, which both did not work.

So, this is my second Spectre x360 15 in model and it has the same issue. When im not mobile, and working from home, I close the laptop and plug it into my docking station and HDMI adapter to work with a full keyboard and dual screens. But, everything I do this, the wifi drops instantly.  The first spectre x360 I had did this too, so I know its not a defect. Is nobody else having this issue?  It will work just fine if I even "crack" the screen open a little (literally half inch) and the wifi goes to full bars, but as soon as I close the lid completely, it drops to the point that pages wont load.  I believe this is a design flaw, but I've google and searched with nobody else complaining?  Help

Hey everybody, I have a problem with my HP Spectre x360 (13-4190nd) that I bought this January. The laptop has an issue with connecting to devices true the usb ports or hdmi (it doesn't transfer the sound to the external screen). It doesn't connect to the Samsung Galaxy SII, S6, S7, S7 edge, Iphone 4 or the Go Pro 4 Silver. It does charge the device that is connected to the laptop, but it doesn't 'recognize' it and I can't see the stuff that's on the device. I did install some Samsung software (usb drivers from the Samsung site) a couple of weeks ago and then it finally connected to the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the go pro. But when I tried to connected the devices again a couple of days ago it didn't work anymore and also after reinstalling the software it still didn't work. Does anybody know what can be the problem? Is this a common issue for this laptop or what software can I install to make sure it recognizes the devices?  Kind regards, Michelle

Bought two Spectre x360 replacing two Windows 7 machines.  Bus powered USB devices do not work with the Spectre X360.  They connect/disconnect every 5-30 seconds.  The devices worked without issue on multiple Windows 7 machines, but will not work on either Spectre X360.  Devices are: USB powered hard drive (USB 3.0), and a software key fob (USB 2.0).  The only way I could get the devices to stay connected to either Spectre X360 is to first connect a powered USB 3.0 hub, and have the USB devices connected to the hub. Here is what I tried without success:1. The BIOS and all drivers are up to date.2. In Device Manager for USB Root Hub (xHCI), I turned off "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" under the Power Management Tab.3. Disbled "USB selective suspend settings" in the "Change advanced power settings" of the "Power Options" / "Change plan settings".4. Unchecked the "Turn on fast startup" in the "Choose what the power buttons do" of the Power Options control panel. This ultra-portable computer is unusable if I must drag along an externally powered USB hub, power plug, and cables to connect my USB devices. Again, all the USB devices work OK on multiple Windows 7 PCs, and do not work on two different Spectre X360.  It appears the Spectre X360 does not supply enough USB power to keep the devices running, they connect and disconnect every 5-30 seconds. Any help woul...

I unboxed a new HP Pavilion x360 today and it refuses to connect to either of my wifi networks. It can see the SSIDs of the networks (both 2.4 and 5 GHz) in the wifi network list, but the laptop fails to connect to any of them. I have two wireless networks (both running on Netgear equipment), both of which have been working without a problem for several years. Each network has multiple laptops and phones connected at any given time. The main wifi unit is acting as a DHCP server for the network, and the second wifi unit is simply there to extend range, so most of its features are turned off and it's just running in Wireless AP mode. Both wifi points are using WPA2-PSK [AES] for their pass phrase. To rule out any authentication issues, I tried turning off access control and set the networks to 'open' (no password), but still no luck connecting. Meanwhile, I can sucessfully connect to both networks with my phone and various other laptops (eg an older HP Pavilion and a Microsoft Surface Pro 2) Every connection attempt gives the message "Verifying and connecting ...." and after 30 seconds or so, it says "Cannot connect to this network" I even tried re-enabling WPS so I could use the "push button to connect" feature on the wifi station. As soon as I pushed the button, the laptop recognised the WPS connection attempt, but after a few seconds it failed, and gave a message saying WPS had failed and I would have to manually type in the pass phrase. I'm pre...

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.

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.

Upon opening the notebook on my desk, a series of cracks surfaced on the upper-left bezel of the screen, and extended across the screen. I keep my notebook for the most part on my desk, and when I travel, I put in the HP leather case, and in a well-paded bag. I've owned this notebook since August last year, and it has performed excellently besides the occaisonal loud fan noise and overheat.  I talked with a helpful HP Customer Support Rep, and I was told that if I were to send in my notebook, and screen damage will be presumed inflicted by the customer. I have also been in contact with the HP Executive board, but their reply did not grant me any help. I would like to know if I can send in my notebook for a proper examination, or if I can speak with a case manager on this issue. I really do not want to file a complaint to the BBB, but I feel that will be necessary if the material defect is to be assumed a damage on my part. Thank you in advance. I will include pictures of my display, as well as pictures of the siding to prove the lack of physical/blunt damage.

Hello, Last winter purchased a convertible 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 x360 from Best Buy. I live 200 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 I could do when I described the problems I was having with my brand new HP. Several months went by and I avoided using the computer as much as 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.  My problems were not limited in any way. They ranged from an extremely annoying touchpad 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 heavy usage, however I barely even turned the thing on. I contacted HP support and I must admit that they were polite, friendly and had my return materials sent very quickly.  My first bad sign involving the shipping process was the fact tha... Read more

HP's lack of quality control is completely unacceptable and inexcusable, especially given the cost of the Spectre x360 line.I went through 5 (FIVE!) 13-inch Spectre x360's. All but one exhibited very loose trackpads (even very light taps will physically move the trackpad down and have an annoying loose click sound when taking your finger off of it). The one with an okay trackpad had USB-C issues. The trackpad -- arguable THE most important part of a laptop -- now feels like garbage. Hell, there are $200 Windows laptops and Chromebooks that have better trackpads than this $1,200 thing.It's extremely frustrating and disappointing. I REALLY wanted for the Spectre x360 to be my laptop (especially considering there's no other 2-in-1 out there that looks this good and is priced as nicely). Looks like the Lenovo Yoga 720 is next on my list. Just wish it had IR cameras for facial logins.

Hi, I have an HP Spectre x360 that is a year and 5 months old. I was running it off the battery when suddenly a whole lot of smoke started coming from underneath the notebook and a smell of burnt plastic filled the air. Reading the forum I found that this is not something new to these HP Spectre x360 notebooks. Its it really possibile that HP have not activated a support program for who owns such an expensive notebook. My notebook is out of warrenty but I honestly think it was a close call, i was working on a wooden table when it started burning. Now I have a 1250 euro paper weight. I did try to contact support and was immediatly cut off once i gave them my serial number, or offered to pay for support. Will paying 30 euros actually achieve something, ie will they attempt a repair or will it be 30 euros just to be told over the phone that its something that simply cannot be repaired. Thanks

Just finished setting up my second Spectre x360 15t. The first one was a driver and screen flickering mess. As I'm finishing putting it through it's paces by running audio with a few tunes through Spotify and then over to Netflix to check dialogue, I've become aware that the fan has been running for some time. When I picked it up to feel the underside I was quite dismayed to feel how hot this thing was. Not cozy up to the fire hot but call the fire department hot. It was on a Xpad which was starting to get a bit toasty itself. No way this could ever sit directly on my lap. I know this is an ultrabook. I know i7 processors run warm under load but this fella gets HOT. I'm coming off a Spectre 13t with an i5 which is just as tight a unit as this one, but it never reached this kind of hot. I'm humorously concerned if I can put this on my desk while under heavy load without melting the finish off. Is anyone else experiencing similar circumstances? I'd appreciate any feedback. Thanks.

The 1-minute hold of the power switch worked for me, but it is darn hard to do because of the somewhat inconvenient power switch position - and if you waver for a moment then the 60 seconds starts again. I found it easiest to turn the 360 on its side on a table and then it is easier to hold the switch down for the full minute uninterrupted. This for me only points out the importance for manufacturers to provide a HARD RESET capability through an unfolded paperclip or the like. C'mon guys, give us what we need to maintain our products!

I really wish to correct this bug. PS: (HP if you correct this bug you will sell three more of those computer, they all want one in the lab!) Follow up:It's seem that we are now hable to use the lagacy mode from the sound card. It's good, but not perfect. The fix for the i2c will come soon, the latest kernel code ask about a mysterious drivers file that doesn't exist right now in the linux firmware directories. So, this case is close because the issue as been addressed. Follow the launchpad bug for furter improvement.  **SOLUTION MAY NOT BE THE SAME FOR YOUR DISTRIBUTION** From Spano: If you use gummiboot you should have somethi... Read more

A:HP spectre x360 on linux

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 venividivici24

 I have only just bought the spectre x360 and all has been well for the first two weeks. This week I found that it has been a little slow to start up. When I opened the machine in laptop mode I would get to the lockscreen where I have to enter my pincode. Despite entering the pin using the keys and trying to use the touchscreen the machine remained unresponsive and I had to open and close the lid unil it did respond which it did eventually. Today I started to have problems with the screen. Whilst using Microsoft Word (2016) and the windows DVD player the machine again stopped responding and the screen went blank. I had to shut the lid and when I opened it again it was still blank. When I plugged it in to a power socket using a charger it seemed to boot up again. The battery was low but not so low that it had wanred me or gone into a hibernation mode (about 15%). When connected to the power socket  I was able to continue using Word but the screen was flcikering. Later this evening I tried to switch to tablet mode. The screen went completely blank and the tablet was not responding at all. When I sought to change it back to laptop mode it remained blank. The light on the CAPS button was flashing. The machine was making a loud whurring noise. It was down for about 5 minutes. Eventually after holding the power button down the machine came back to life.  I have never posted in a forum like this before and whilst I have purchased the HP Care P... Read more

My Spectre x360-13-4005dx went dead yesterday. It was fully charged adn plugged in, I was working, and then black screen. No response from any reset actions. No light when depressing the power button. No light from plugging in.  It is only two years old and gently used. From brwosing teh forum, this seems to be a widespread issue, bordering on a lemon. What is the fix?

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. 

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.

Hey guys! I bought my new ash silver HP spectre x360 13" recently and Ive discovered som faults in the production. I am now wondering if anyone else noticed these faults and if I could/should exchange my example for a new proper one ( I do genuenly love it) Firstly, it is not balanced proberly when sitting on a flat surface. Ive made a video showcasing it. Which can be seen below. This is a major annoyance for me, simply cant stop thinking about it.. https://youtu.be/JOVhRYA1Fvg?t=248. Secondly, there seem to be something loose within the trackpad. A click noise is produced when using it for scrolling. This makes it virtually impossible to use silently while someone else is trying to sleep next to me.. Example below https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YHY6_oatLuE And Thirdly. Some users have been asking me if i was having any battery drain issues. I did test it once, full charge 100%, laptop turned off. 8 hours later it still had 100% so no issues there for me. Is it possible to get a spectre x360 13" without any of these issues?

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,,,
