Q: HP ENVY Phoenix Desktop - 860-019 Freezes

I bought the HP phoenix 860-019 a couple of weeks ago and from day 1 it freezes up. There is no one particular thing I am doing, it is very random. Could be 10 mins into use or a couple hours. All drivers are up to date. I have read that the nvidia 860 card that is installed has issues with windows 10 but don't see any fixes. That drive is up to date as well. This was a refurbished computer could that be the issue? Should I reinstall windows? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I've been considering buying the HP Envy Phoenix 860-019. I don't like buying a pc over the internet though. I am finding it impossible to find this model anywhere in my Province at retail stores like Best Buy, Staples etc, they have them online as well but don't carry the lastest models in-store anymore. This has been ongoing for a long while. I also noticed the price increased recently by $100. Canadian at HP Canada & online at other stores which seems odd for what now isn't HP's latest. This brings me to another question. I see that HP in the U.S. has a model I would prefer buying, it's the Envy Phoenix 860st. I'm able to select larger hdd's, Cpu etc. Why is HP not making this available in Canada? Personally I think HP is making a mistake, I'm not buying the Envy 860-019 but would buy the 860st if it were available here. I'm likely to have a local shop build one to my specs instead which I've done a couple of times in the past.

This is a peer to peer help forum. The only presence that HP has on it are the Admins and the Mods. Otherwise, none of us works for HP. I have a HP Phoenix 860-170VR (you can review the specs) that has similar specs to the 860-019.  In fact, it has a HDD instead of a SSD.  It is a very nice computer with good system performance.  HP has loaned it to me so I can help members with their problems.  I wouldn't hesitate to buy the 019. Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

I turn on the defrag and Optimized my c drive as you advised me but my question is also are there other changes I might need to change to get more speed out of this SSD drive?  My PC had Windows 8.1 Pro when I first got it and here on the HP support Form I found a list of steps to change, but I have not found this list in my files yet. Are you saying that Windows 10 has been changed in this issue that it makes all changes from a standard drive to a SSD drive,so we don't need to do anything?Thank You for your Help...Dan

Cranky_Eagle YES -- Win10 knows when the OS is running on an SSD and already has built-in the functions it needs to work effectively with an SSD.  There is nothing you need to do. I've been running Win10 on an SSD and never had to do anything to get it to work properly.Good Luck

I decided recently to take the plunge and make the biggest purchase I have ever made. I had recently beaten homelessness and unemployment and now had the financial security to buy myself a great computer! My excitement didn't last long though.When I ordered my computer it was advertized as coming with a GTX 980 and the one I got contained a Radeon 390x. I was pretty angry as no email had been sent to me informing me about the change,  I may not be close to living on the streets again, but $1,100 - $1,300 isn't money I can just throw around. I'd at least want to know if something had been changed. Further more, I've had the computer for 3 days and have had about 20 crashes that restarted my computer. I called HP Support, but they say the can't do anything without seeing a crash firsthand. The crashes are all verifiable in the logs! I have 20 crash dumps sitting on my harddrive right now! I'm at the point that I think I'll just eat the increased cost to return this computer and build my own. This is the second time I've gotten burned by HP products and customer support and I'm thinking it will be the last.I currently work at a NOC for a fortune 500 IT company, and I know it can be busy and thankless work, but not using the logs and tools provided to dianose an issue is not acceptable.

Hello Klutzydrummer, I know you have looked through the log files to see the crashes but do you know what driver is causing the blue screen crashes. If I may make a suggestion if it does not show it you can download bluescreenViewer from NirSoft and that will tell you which kind of blue screens you are getting and where they are coming from. Once having those it will be easier to see if this is software (and where) or if it is a hardware issues.  Thanks

I am preparing to upgrade from Win 8.1 to Win 10. According to the HP Support site the BIOS should be upgraded before upgrading to Win 10. The BIOS currently installed as reported by msinfo32 is "AMI 80.16, 05/12/2013".  According to the HP Support site page for my product, the latest HP Consumer Desktop PC BIOS Update (ROM Family SSID 2AF3) software available is sp72302.exe Version 80.24 Rev A, Aug 3 2015. I temporarily disabled my Antivirus (Norton Security), and exited ZoneAlarm Firewall Free, and then attempted to download and install this new BIOS version using "HP Download and Install Assisstant (Recommended)". The download part suceeded, and a cmd window launched, and all operations displayed within it appeared to proceed without error. After the cmd window closed, the remaining dialogue window indicated that the BIOS update was also successful. No automatic reboot occurred so I then closed that dialogue and manually rebooted. After logging in again and re-running msinfo32, the BIOS version reported is unchanged at "AMI 80.16, 05/12/2013". To double check I rebooted and used F10 to enter the BIOS. At that level in System Information, the BIOS version is reported as "KAI v80.16 12/05/2013", so it seems that the BIOS update to the new v80.24 Rev A in fact did NOT succeed. What do I need to do to successfully update the BIOS to Version 80.24 Rev A?

I ordered a new HP Envy Phoenix 860st yesterday and was wondering if anyone else has taken the plunge on this same model? This will be my first HP after 15+ years of buying Dell computers. I actually looked at Dell but they offered almost zero customization to their XPS line. Anyhow, I'm just curious to hear from others who also purchased this model. Good, bad or indifferent. I should mention my current PC is a Dell XPS running Windows Vista and it has been 8 years since my last upgrade. However, I have upgraded my previous PC with a newer graphics card, SSD drive and maxed out the RAM. This was all in an attempt to squeeze as much life out of it as possible, but unfortunately the time has come to move on from it. Feel free to drop a note on your experience and any caveats.Thanks!

I bought my Phoenix 810-250se last August, and I am now trying to upgrade my graphics card. The product information sheet says that the power supply in the computer is 600W, but looking at the power supply itself, it says that the maximum power output is 500W. This is crucial to the ability to upgrade the system, and either the power supply or the product information sheet is incorrect. If someone knows the true wattage of the system, please let me know, as I am very confused as to how much power the machine has. Thank you.

I have been happily running two monitors since I got this computer in April 2016, one monitor connected to the HDMI port and the other to the DVI port on the NVIDIA GTX 960 card.  This card supports four monitors maximum.  It has 1 HDMI, 1 DVI, and 3 DisplayPort connections. Note that on model 860-010 you cannot use the two vertical HDMI ports marked HDMI 1 and HDMI 2.  They are not active in this model .  They only work with lesser models that use integrated graphics.  This model has the dedicated graphics card, so only the ports on the card are active.  (That's according to HP Support and I can confirm it from experience.)  Now I need to connect a third monitor which only has DVI and VGA ports.  My only option is to connect it to one the DisplayPort ports on the card through an adapter.  I contacted NVIDIA support and they told me that either an *active* or *passive* adapter will work with this card. So I bought a passive DisplayPort to DVI adapter cable and connected the third monitor to one of the DisplayPorts. When I boot, the boot screen shows up on my third monitor but it flags an unspecified error, says it can't start Windows, and offers to recover my system back to a restore point, which I of course decline.  I tried various advanced troubleshooting options, two different DisplayPort ports, and two different DVI monitors with the same...

Update: When I run two monitors, one connected to the HDMI port and the other to a DisplayPort through the DisplayPort to DVI passive adapter cable, it works fine. So the cable itself is OK.  It's only when I attempt to run a third monitor through that cable that it fails. I suspect NVIDIA support was wrong when they said a passive adapter would work for a third monitor.  I've heard of a video card that works fine with a passive adapter for the first two monitors but requires an active adapter for the third.  I was hoping the NVIDIA GTX 960 was not like that.  Does anybody know for sure? Also, the precise sequence of boot messages with the third monitor is: 1.

A. Are you using one of these now? Have you tried setting BIOS to defaults?

Hello ...  My custom built HP Envy Phoenix Desktop was shipped to me about three weeks ago.  All has been running smoothly, however, 2 days ago, a rattle started in the tower, and continues most of the time the computer is on.  It kind of sounds like a CPU unit running loudly.  I'm not sure if it's the water cooled fan, or something loose.  It is not being caused by the air fan towards the top of the computer ? the noise comes from the bottom portion of the tower. I have not opened the tower to look for anything loose, as I do not want to void the warranty.   I figure if I call HP, they are going to tell me to box up the tower, send it to them, and I won't see it for a few weeks, which is really irritating after transferring everything over to the new computer and using it daily now.  Does anyone think this could be a simple "screw loose" that I should open the tower?  I took a breif video of the noise, but do not know how to embed it in this message, or attach a link. Thanks in advance for anyone's opinion out there!

RELEVANCY SCORE 58.8

Hello all.  I recently bought an Nvida 1060 to replace my old GTX 680.  No problem knowning to to swap out the cards in general, but there was this metal support on the old graphics card as well as holding the wiring together on top of it.  I'm curious if any other 1440 owners have dealt with this.  Did you leave it in?  How do I take it out if I can? There is not a single youtube video or support video of anyone with this model number!  Appreciate all of your help.  To clarify; this isnt the bar that goes across some HP envy models that you can see in the tutorial videos.
