Q: HP pavilion notebook 15-ab150no and linux?

Hi. I have wondered is my (quite) new laptop suitable for any linux? I did dualboot win10 and ubuntu 16.04 LTS but i have no idea why everything isnt working really well (I never had dualboot before, used only ubuntu). I might even want to have only linux in my computer but I dont know how to fix if something goes wrong, I have no experience in these things. I have tried to find imformation of what I should do, but I have no idea. I dont want to use only windows. If someone knows something or have a little time to help me, or to guide me in right forum or something, I thank you.

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/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

What part of Ubuntu is not working well? You have an AMD processor and AMD integrated video which is a bit challenging in Linux but can be made to work. Is wifi working? I also prefer to have Linux available and on my latest laptop it was problematic to get it installed in a dual boot arrangement so I installed it in a Virtual Machine installation and that is generally enough Linux for my needs.

I apologize for being a bit of a newbie on the subject, but I'll try my best to explain. I'm trying to get my Beats Audio to work on Linux.  I found a way that has worked for some people which involves remapping certain audio pins, but I don't know what pins to map to what.  Here are the pins that show up for me: 0x120x130x140x150x160x170x180x190x1a0x1b0x1d0x1e

Hello. I bought an HP Notebook (Product key: P6L84PA#ACJ) last month. It is  a free-DOS system and I installed Ubuntu version 16.04LTS in it. Everything works fine except the wifi. The keeps on connecting and disconnecting continuously, making it impossible for me to use wifi on it, and I use the net via USB Tethering.

I have just bought this lkaptop and the hardware is nice, but I do not want to run Windows. Simple, I thought, as it's a PC, I'll just install Ubuntu. Well, the boot from USB is UEFI and that is a bit of a pain to set up, and I can't get it to work. The Ubuntu 14 install disk I burnt is an EFI boot CD and it simply fails to boot. Using the F9 option I get aBoot device failed message in white text on a blue screen. When I try to boot through the boot menus I get a missing file at \ubuntu\winboot\. I have just created a Windows recovery disk and that seems to boot fine. It looks like the BIOS/UEFI is set up to only allow Windows to boot. I've bought a USB DVD drive and failed to boot from that, also two memory sticks and a HDD. So, questions, before I put the laptop in the bin: 1. Has anyone else got Linux onto this device and if so what image and procedure did you use to get the install to work? 2 Is there a way to get legacy mode booting set up in the BIOS (The BIOS mentions legacy support in the screens but its not there).  Andrew 

A:Linux on HP Pavilion x2 detachable PC 10

It seems that the hp x2 has a 32 bit uefi. So you'll need a 32bit uefi boot loader. Most distros I've seen just ship the 64 bit bootloader. There's a guy at debian who is trying to support this kind of thing - He's working on a netinst image for deb8. The current image he's published so far boots, but I can't get networking to work. Here's his blog (other good stuff there):http://blog.einval.com/debian/CDs Here's the deb image:http://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/unofficial/efi-development/jessie-upload3.Hth /markus

This is a multiple question really. Just purchased the above notebook and tried to Install Linux under a dual boot. I have tried Mint 18.1 Cinnamon and Ubuntu 16.04.02 LTE. Neither is able to detect any wifi networks, and I have tried a whole load of options to reset the wireless chipset (which works fine on the Win 10 the machine came with), but to no avail. Going onto the HP website, I can't find the manual: after typing in the serial number I am presented with very little in the way of information so I have to assume there isn't a manual. I also can't find a detailed spec sheet so I can't find out what chipset is used in the wireless driver, therefore I can't search the Linux forums for a driver. So I'm stuck, which is both frustrating and a little embarrassing.  So to summarise, is there a manual for my machine, a detailed spec sheet with the relevant details for the wireless chipset, and can anyone suggest how I can get this working under Linux? Ta muchly, Nik

A:Linux wireless driver for HP 14-am100na notebook

Your specs which do not show the exact wifi chip: https://support.hp.com/gb-en/document/c05346381 Service manual: Manual See p. 4. You either have the Broadcom or the Realtek wireless + bluetooth adapter.  If the Broadcom see here: https://askubuntu.com/questions/765584/is-it-possible-to-use-broadcom-bcm43142-wifi-in-ubuntu-16-04 "sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-sourceAnd it worked immediately!!!" If Realtek try this: https://askubuntu.com/questions/635625/how-do-i-get-a-realtek-rtl8723be-wireless-card-to-work You might want to run an apt-get dist-upgrade and try to get the latest kernel you can. Kernel 4.2 and higher "just works" with newer wireless adapters that were problems under older kernels.  Post back with any more questions. Obviously I think you should run Ubuntu and I would even suggest running 16.10 as it has kernel 4.2 natively.  Good luck  If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

Hi, It is great to upgrade system to Windows 10, but in the same time, series of issues occur, like the USB device issue. After upgrading the system to Windows 10, you find that your USB device cannot connect to your PC. You may need to plug your external devices like MP3, pen drive, printer, etc. to your computer through the USB ports. So it is very inconvenient that the USB ports don?t work properly. Solutions below may help you fix the USB port issue. Since your USB device works properly before you upgrade the system, the problem most probably is not caused by the USB device. But you can also plug the USB device to another computer. If it unfortunately doesn?t work, you can consider replacing the device. Following are the solutions to figure out the problem. Solution 1: Check if the problem is caused by power supply issue 1. Unplug the power supply and charger plug from your PC.2. Restart your PC. Connect your USB device to the PC again. Then you can plug the power supply.Solution 2:The Power Management would also be the cause of the USB problems. Windows is set to shut down your USB controller to save power by default, sometimes it won?t be able to power it back up. So try following steps to prevent Windows from ?managing? power to your USB controller or the devices.1. Open Device Manager.2. Expand the Universal Serial Bus controllers branch.3. Double-click the USB Root Hub device, and click the Power Management tab. (if there?... Read more

wow that is pretty hot... does it always run that hot, or does it only run that hot when he's gaming, or watching a movie? could just be a demanding laptop, but then again you could take it to a PC specialist (comp usa or local computer shop) and get the powersupply checked out. dang if it's melting the tip thats pretty hot...

But if I put on the system, it will come up but the charger and the adaptor is not charging the PC.I have removed the battery and held down the power button for about a minute and it still did not work.Please help. What can I do

Hi All:
    A few weeks ago I started to download DVDShrink from what looked like a perfectly legitimate company site. After I clicked to download the program it began to install itself. At the same time all kinds of alarms went off - Comodo, Malwarebytes, etc. - and I quickly shut down.
    After booting up I ran a quick Mbam scan and it found 32 infected files which I deleted. I then ran a full Mbam scan and it found a bunch more. Later I also ran full Mbam and Avast scans but this time around neither came up with anything. I also used ERUNT to replace the Registry with a clean copy made earlier.
    For a few days everything ran OK but then Firefox began to freeze up whenever I brought up a page with a Youtube video on it. Then other things started to freeze - Task Manager, etc. - and now it's reached the stage that the computer won't boot up properly at all. Almost everything is frozen. The computer won't even start in Safe Mode. At best it just brings up my mouse pointer (which is working) and my desktop wallpaper but nothing more.
    Different Windows messages have appeared at times one of which said something to the effect that Windows was stopping to prevent further damage. There is a separate RESTORE section on the drive for restoring the computer to factory settings but I can't access it. Since I can't get into the computer to do anything at all I'm wondering if there's any way of being able to get the com... Read more

My HP Pavilion dv7-1014ca Entertainment Notebook is running incredibly hot. The fan is on pretty much all the time. The BIOS is fully updated and I've vaccumed the vents and the fan. I keep my laptop on hard, flat surfaces, and yet at times it's almost too hot to touch. the entire bottom section of the notebook will be remarkably hot. Any idea what the problem could be? I've also had moments when my notebook shuts down without any warning for seemingly no reason. Could it be overheating?

Welcome
You dmps are showing code 116, and that can be a problem as small as a driver, but can be hardware, such as memory or worse
atikmpag.sys
You can update the driver.
If it is anything else it is most likely hardware related. Since it is new, you may want to exercise the Warranty. I know from past experience, too many changes will void the warranty.

Hi, I have recently reďnstalled Windows10 on my notebook, but (almost) every time I turn it off (or to sleep mode or hibernate mode) the fan and power light stay on. The only way to properly shut the machine down is by pressing the power button for a few seconds. I wonder if this is something in the OS or the BIOS settings, and if it is because of the BIOS settings, is updating the BIOS really the only way to fix this? Thanks in advance, Emma

A:HP Pavilion 13-b020nd Notebook PC

HI. Please see that the bios has the default values of the bios:1. F 10 at system startup2. Go to the boot menu ... F9 to restore the default settings3 Save and Exit. Or do this if the above does not solve it: Control Panel > Device Manager > scroll down to System Devices > scroll down to and right click Intel(R) Management Engine Interface > Properties > click tab Power Management > you should see an option that says "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power". Make sure this option is NOT checked and if it is, un-check it and click OK.And while your at it try and update the drivers for Intel(R) Management Engine Interface, Go to:Control Panel > Device Manager > scroll down to System Devices > scroll down to and rightclick Intel(R) Management Engine Interface > Update driver software > Search Automatically for updated driver software.  Driver for Intel's Management Engine Interface (MEI)http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp72001-72500/sp72314.exe Regards.
