Differences between Envy M7 n109dx vs HP Envy 17t

Q: Differences between Envy M7 n109dx vs HP Envy 17t

The HP Envy 17t (2015 model) is no longer for sale at the HP Store so I am thinking of purchasing the HP Envy M7 n109dx from Best buy but I am noticing that there are some differences between that model and the one that originally was selling in the HP Store. I have noticed the following about the Envy M7 vs the Envy 17t Weaker Processor- The Envy 17t had a Quad Core i7 6700 HQ vs the Dual Core i7 6500U on the M7Weaker Graphics Card- The Envy 17t touch had a Nvidia GeForce 950 GTX vs a 940 GT on the M7No fingerprint reader on the M7 like on the Envy 17Some websites mention that the M7 only has dual speakers and not quad speakers and a subwoofer like the 17t. Is there other features that the M7 is missing in comparison to the Envy 17t Touch? Bonus: Would I be able to upgrade it to have two HDD's in the future using a hard drive Caddy like in the Envy 17t or not.

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.

This is not a question but just an upgrade I did to my computer myself. For those that have this computer you know how slow this thing is even for everyday use. I've been had mine since March 2016 and already it seemed out of date. I finally got around to upgrading it a little bit and I must say, so far, this thing is AWESOME. Mind you, I did all the upgrades my self and it is my first time upgrading a laptop.  You have to remove about 10 screws from the bottom cover (take the battery out first) and you have to use really small screwdrivers (phillips) and make sure YOU PUT THOSE SMALL SCREWS SOMEWHERE WHERE THEY WON'T FALL ON THE FLOOR! Once all the screws are removed, use a credit card to gently pry up the corners. DO NOT USE YOUR FINGERS! Replacing the hard drive with an ssd is super easy. Remove 4 small screws that attach the hard drive to the case, gently disconnect the cable, and then remove 4 more screws from the brackets that attach to the hard drive. Grab your ssd and reverse the procedure. Super easy. When installing windows 10, the process took about 20 minutes start to finish. I see why people love SSD's. I replaced the slow 1tb hard drive with a 500gb Samsung SSD I bought from my local electronics store. $179.99I bought a fresh copy of windows 10 home (yes, I know I could have cloned the windows 10 off the hard drive onto the ssd but I believe that hard drive had some corrupted data and didn't want to take chances on it doing it to my ssd....

I own an HP Pavilion dv6 Notebook PC (LT-5: S/N 5CH14206FM) & two HP Envy m7-n109dx Notebook PC's (LT-6: S/N CND5486SPZ, & LT-7: [Personal information removed]). Both LT-6 & LT-7 came with Windows 10 installed as the OS. Initial use of these PC's impressed me as to how slow they were to startup & shutdown, & also how much that I disliked Windows 10. Subsequently, I had Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit installed as the OS on LT-6 with the goal of speeding up the PC. It did so when compared to LT-7 (Windows 10), but not so when compared to LT-5, which also has Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit as the OS.
 
Comparitive startup & shutdown times for my notebook PC's;
 
LT-5 (Windows 7): 42 & 14 seconds
LT-6 (Windows 7): 50 & 22 seconds
LT-7 (Windows 10): 167 & 29 seconds
 
I thought when I bought the HP Envy Notebook PC's with the "6th Generation Intel i7 CPU" that I would be getting much faster PC's than my HP Pavilion Notebook PC with a "2nd or 3rd Generation Intel i7 CPU". Not so !
 
I also found a significant difference in internet access times between the LT-6 (Windows 7) & LT-7 (Windows 10) Envy PC's. On LT-6 it took 5 seconds to access my personal banking login website from the Favorites listing in Windows Internet Explorer. On LT-7 it took 24 seconds to access the website.

Hi all, I recently purched the HP Envy M7-n109dx notebook from Best Buy. I was wondering if it is possible to add a second hard drive to this notebook, without sacrificing/removing the optical drive? It seems that many new laptops have built in space for additional drives. Thanks. Jordan

Hi, The following manual only says Dual storage for HP Envy 17 models (as my loan machine).             http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c04582332.pdf Other machines don't have dual storage but may have room for a second HDD. Just my 2 cents.

I recently purchased the HP Evy 17t, model m7-n109dx laptop, and installed the Samsung 850 EVO M.2 500 GB SSD in the M.2 slot on the laptop.  However, I cannot determine how to enable the drive so it shows up in either Windows 10 or the BIOS.  I have made a recovery USB stick so I can install the OS on the M.2 drive and make the 1 TB drive that came with the computer a storage drive.  Am I overlooking something?  I have seen others on this forum that have installed this drive and apparently had no issues at all.  I have looked in the Boot Order setup and the BIOS settings as well, and checked disk management, but nothing is there.

A:Adding Samsung 850 EVO M.2 SSD to HP Envy m7-n109dx

Jkmatthews, Did you download the migration software from Samsung?  I have a m7 laptop also and have considered upgrading to the SSD option - but have not done so yet. I do know that Smasung provides toos to help migrate the OS from the 1TB to the SSD - and there are others out there as well. I would advise to NOT restore the OS from your memory-stick - until you've spent some time on the Samsung site and look at their migration tools.  And I believe there may be some configuration settings in the BIOS - but not sure, Hope this helps,LaptopJack

I have the same exact issue. I contacted support over it numerous times to no help. I contacted Best Buy where I bought it and they said that hp needed to do something about it. I have had nothing but troubles from a $1000 computer. This is the first time I have every spent more then $500 on and it seems it is only worth what the rich screen costs if that. I have had to take things into my own hands since I never got help from anyone. I have ran numerous tests on it. I have replaced parts my self and to no avail nothing is stopping this thing from locking up every few min. The only thing I have not replaced is the motherboard. This thing has cost me almost double what I paid for it. Best Buy would have done something if hp would have admitted there was a problem. So since they would not admit to any issue I got screwed. Thanks hp. I hope you guys enjoy mu money and have me nothing in return and I bet you laughed all the way to the bank.

I purchased a refurbished HP Envy M7 n109dx on Amazon and I noticed that eventhough it was supposed to come with a 90 day warranty, it is expired. Is there any way I can get the 90 day warranty. I just received it today in the mail.

A:Warranty on Refurbished HP Envy M7 n109dx

You mean it shows as expired on the website? Did you register it with HP? The system builds in a presumed warranty end date based on when the unit shipped to the seller. If it sits on the shelf for a while that date can come and go. The warranty is 90 days from retail delivery so keep all your paperwork and if a warranty claim comes up (let's hope not) you can prove the delivery date.

The right hinge on my Envy 17 Touch Screen has failed, causing the case to become separated and the lid to be nearly impossible to close. This is the second Envy 17 to fail in this way. About a year ago my husband's broke and HP spent nearly three months attempting to repair it before finally just shipping him a new one. This appears to be a flaw in the construction of the hinge assembly, and we have noticed that the newer models, such as my husband's replacement, have a much improved design in comparison. We spent about $1,300 on this computer (it has an i7 Core and 16 GB of RAM) and hoped it would hold up for a while. The laptop was great, but now it has become difficult to use without fear of causing further damage. Thank you for any suggestions.

I purchased my HP Envy laptop a little over two years ago (6/28/2014), and maybe 6 months into my ownership the right hinge began to be problematic. It wasn't a huge issue, I would push it and it would click right back in, but now the issue has become extremely out of hand. Both hinges malfunction now, screws are missing, and the black plastic bottom detatches a considerable amount every time I open the laptop, and makes cringe-worthy sounds whenever I open and close the machine.   Reading through other people experiencing this issue, I'm extremely disheartened that HP didn't issue a recall on this product, or make an effort to reach out to users to let them know a solution. My hopes in this contact is to hear back from an HP rep in hopes of some repair with little or no cost to me. The machine has never been dropped or mishandled, and works very well aside from this important functional issue (the opening and closing of the product). Hope to hear back from someone soon. Thank you.

I paid what I thought was a fairly high price for what seemed to be a solid looking computer a little over 3 years ago. The hinge started having issues before my additional warranty was up, but the seller of it (Frys) said it isnt likely that it would be covered because it appeared to have been dropped which wasn't true.  Now I read that others have had the same issue and that it is poorly designed, probably purposely.   I will be more careful next time and buying from HP won't be my choice.

I have just bought a Envy 17T-BTO.  It has an I7-6700 CPU, 16GB of RAM and an Nvidia GTX950M graphics card so you would think it would be quite a powerhouse.  However it is deadly slow.  With nothing installed on it yet, i.e. factory clean Windows 10 (64 Bit) it takes about 1 minute from pushing the power button before you see any activity, then it says 'please wait" with the swirling dots for another minute.  Then the screen goes blank for another minute, then the "please wait" blue screen with swirling dots for another minutes, then finally the backdrop screen.  Then when I go to log in I get the swirling dots for another minute before the dektop appears, and then it is busy loading just the taskbar icon shortcuts for amazon and trip advisor which takes another 30 seconds or so.5 minutes 30 seconds to do a restart in Windows 10. My old desktop restarts into Windows 10 in about 20 seconds. What is up with my brand new laptop?  Is it the deadly slow 5400 RPM 1TB drive? Help please

A:envy 17T-BTO

Hello, Thank you for posting in the HP Support forum. Considering the processor and the RAM, a 5400 RPM HDD is somewhat slow. For super speedy machine, it deserves an SSD  But still, 5 minutes is too much, so I guess there is something more. Most probably software issue, some 3rd party program. Just to be on the safe side, first test it for hardware issues.Start your computer again by using the power-on button andas soon as you do it, keep hitting the Esc button (like tap-tap-tap) - you will enter HP boot menu like this:   Choose/press F2 and follow the on-screen instructions to perform System test >>> QUICK test. More information can be found here>> http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03467259>> http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03467259#AbT1 It should check these components:    Battery check    Processor check    System board check    Hard drive SMART check    Hard drive short DST check    Memory quick check  Hopefully (and most probably) tests will pass. Please, let me know if they fail.  Re. software issues. You can check these:>> http://www.howtogeek.com/166698/how-to-optimize-and-tune-up-your-pc-without-paying-an-electronics-st...>> http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c04770630for some tips re. software optimization. -- You may consider uninstalling 3rd party anti...

My Envy Notebook is having difficulty with recieving wireless signals at a reasonalbe distance from the wireless router.  When the computer is in the same room as the router everthing is OK, but at 50 feet away, it works intermittenly even though the wireless properties show 4 bars out of 5 at that distance. I have replaced my old wireless router with a Netgear AC1900, a very highly rated wireless router and the problem did not change. I have read about all the problems with the Intel N2230 wireless card and I don't seem to have those problems. Should I replace the wireless card?   I would like to know what other wireless cards are compatible with this notebook just in case it it an N2230 issue. The serial number of the Envy is 5CG3412DV8
