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.)

I bought one HP laptop two years ago. The model of my laptop is HP Pavilion 15 e066tx. I found bluetooth is not supported by the default wireless card with the model Realtek 8188EE. So I wanted to change the wireless card by BCM4357. But when I booted the laptop after I changed the wireless card, it showed "104-Unsupported wireless network device detected." So I had to change the default wireless card back. I flashed the latest BIOS which was released at April 2014 but it was still no available. So I found there is a wireless card whitelist in the BIOS. If the model of the wireless card is not contained in the BIOS, it will never be supported. I think this laptop model is out of warranty, so I ask for remove the wireless card whitelist from the BIOS or add the model of BCM4357 in the BIOS. Thanks.

I would like to upgrade my wireless network card. I would like to know if my particular notebook model has a BIOS whitelist that would prevent me from installing a card that's not on the list.
HP has never published a definitive list but by monitoring posts here from people like you and success and failure stories and our own experiments with our own HP machines it has been determined that HP abandoned the whitelist sometime in Q42013. Models with 4th gen Intel Core processors like yours are generally safe. I am about 95% sure you have no whitelist issues. See p. 86 of the Manual here: Manual Just about the time HP abandoned the whitelist, however, they began selling laptops strung with a single wireless antenna cable. While the laptop no longer is blocked from booting with a non-HP card, the absence of a second antenna effectively prevents use of any very good wireless card, making upgrade efforts futile. The only way to know for sure if you have 1 or 2 antennae is to open it up. Models with the 802.11 b/g/n "low-end" wifi cards tend to have a single antenna. It is theoretically possible to add a second antenna lead but very difficult to do. Don't shoot the messenger. Not my design, but this is the straight story.

Is there any chance of having a bios update for this notebook that will either remove the hardware whitelist or allow for upto date wireless cards?
What is the currently installed wifi adapter? You will not be able to install an internal wifi adapter that is capable of 802.11ac specification. The antenna setup in the notebook only allows for a 1 x 1 (single data stream) single band (2.4 GHz) adapter. Internal 802.11ac 2 x 2 (dual data stream) dual band wifi adapters are not a viable upgrade option for your 2012 model notebook. The only way to have 802.11ac wifi specification for your notebook would be to use a USB wifi dongle that has the capability. The USB adapter can also give you dual band capability.

Hi all, I read that Wi-Fi cards are whitelisted because of FCC regulations, so only Wi-Fi cards that are tested to work correctly are added to the whitelist. HP has relatively low prices because it cuts cost on crappy network cards (which are good enough for most low level users, but not for power users). I want to upgrade to a decent 2.4GHz and 5GHz card with bluetooth support and multiple OS support (Broadcom). Broadcom cards are not officially supported for some reason (and no, I am not planning on buying an external Wi-Fi card for obvious reasons). So, my question is as follows: Could HP test some Broadcom cards (hint: they work) and add them to the BIOS whitelist. It would make the lifes of so many customers so much easier and HP would be able to distinguish themselves from other manufacturers. Please add more Wi-Fi cards to the whitelist. Kind regards,kvanzuijlen

I can speak directly to this. I had the 17t-j029nr HP loaned me a few years back which is an even earlier model and I can speak from experience that it had no whitelist so 100% sure yours does not either.

I picked up a M83 tower and I'd like to put in a GTX1070. I've read about the whitelist and looked through the readme file and it seems to be a whitelist implemented by the Lenovo nVidia driver. When I got the computer I put in a new SSD as the system drive and installed a fresh retail copy of Windows 10 Pro. The driver whitelist shouldn't be an issue since I'm not using any Lenovo drivers, correct? I've also upgraded the PSU to ab EVGA 750W so that's taken care of too.
The whitelist is a function of the BIOS, not the OS. I'll be interested in knowing if the 1070 works.Read other 1 answers

I am looking for a whitelist for my motherboard. I am planning on adding an external graphics card to my laptop, and I need to use a PCI-e slot that I think is used up by the network card. The graphics adapter is in this link:
I have a Toshiba Satellite C75D-B7230 with an AMD A6-6310 and Radeon R4 integrated graphics. I have a network adapter that uses a USB slot so I have a means of accessing wireless networks.
My fear is that when I remove the network card (which I believe is interchangeable) the BIOS will not load because some manufacturers create a list of mandatory hardware that is necessary to boot the PC. I will try to remove the card and reboot, but I don't exactly want to get into a mess and then mess up my PC. It has already taken a trip to the shop due to a fan failing.
If anyone can figure this out, that would be great.
Dear HP Support, i am the happy owner of an HP 6710b (year 2007/2008 model) notebook.Of course now it is a little bit dated. So i decided to upgrade my wifi card (intel) to a new Intel wifi card which supports the 802.11n standard. Unfortunately i discovered that HP uses BIOS based wifi card whitelists to prohibit the user to upgrade the wifi card. When i bought the notebook HP never mentioned it. HP advertised that the notebook has a mini pci express slot. Therefore i concluded that every mini pcie standards compatible wifi card would work. My Questions: 1. Why do you use bios whitelists ?2. How will you fix this ?3. When will you fix this? 4. Which models are using a whitelist? Does HP sell any Notebook/netbook without a bios whitelist? Thank you.
Hi,The first 3 questions are for HP guys but I'm not one..HP provide service manuals for its products and you may find all compatible components in there. The whitelist contains all the part numbers from the service guide so when you want to upgrade a laptop, find the component in the service guide or choose the best you can get if more components are available..The guide for your laptop: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/CoreRedirect.jsp?redirectReason=DocIndexPDF&prodSer...There is an Intel 802.11a/b/g/n compatible wireless card.

The part number is important because the same WiFi Link 4965AGN for the UK or other European/Asia countries will be probably different (use different wifi regulations than the US).This one should work:http://www.ebay.com/itm/HP-Mini-PCIe-802-11-A-B-G-N-WLAN-4965AGN-New-441086-001-/330611825906?pt=PCC...?Read other 9 answers

I want to turn this PC into a media streamer from as NAS server and need a HDMI output compatible Graphics card for this machine? Can anyone recommend whats on the whitelist or fully functions wih the M58p?
Can't recommend a card, but just wanted to make sure you knew that you don't have to have a graphics card with an HDMI port on it. The signaling for HDMI and DVI are identical, just different connectors. I have a cable that has a male DVI connector on one end and a male HDMI connector on the other. I connect from the DVI port of an ADD-2R card directly to my TV. There are also DVI/HDMI converters that accomplish this same task using the converter and a standard HDMI cable. Check the parts listing for your machine on the support site to see which graphics cards are supported for your model.Read other 7 answers

hi guys. i have an lsi logic 20320 pci-x scsi card, and I accidentally flashed it with the incorrect bios/firmware while attempting to upgrade it. now the card will not boot up and is unusable. is there any way to restore or change the firmware/bios on it now? the reason i can't do it is because i can't boot to a floppy or command prompt BEFORE the scsi bios tries to boot the card up. once the scsi card tries to boot up, it displays "hardware malfunction" and freezes and/or reboots the system. and there is no way to bypass or prevent the card from starting up. i have tried adding an additional scsi card and booting into a command prompt after IT boots up, but my pci bus will only recognize one scsi card at a time, so this doesn't work. and obviously , i can not repair the card from within windows, because i can not even get into windows with the card installed. any assistance would be GREATLY appreciated, as I have searched the internet for a long time now, and talked to numerous clueless tech support reps about this.
I would say you are probably hosed, unless you can get ahold of another card that may be damaged in some other way and have someone really good to swap the chips.

I'd like to start out with a question that I'm hoping someone out there has an easy answer to! I'm the head of the IT department for work and have been working on better security for our company PC's. One of the biggies has been adding approved sites to a whitelist. Microsoft SteadyState has worked out fine for now, but it forces us to only use Internet Explorer. I'd love it if someone out there knows of a simple, cheap (or free preferably) method of creating a whitelist of URL's in both WinXP and Vista that would work with any web browser installed.
I'll also add that I can't do this through a physical firewall as it needs to be much more easily configurable/editable as the computers sit in multiple stores across multiple states!
So anyone have any ideas?

Hi AllDoes any one know whether Lenovo are going to remove this stupid whitelist for Wifi cards on future models? I had to reflash the BIOS on my X220 in order to get my prefferred wifi card to work. My girlfriends Lenovo U310 had a rubbish Broadcom card which kept disconnecting from the Wifi and it was a royal PITA to find a download for new BIOS for that. I work in IT and have been somewhat responsible for purchasing decisions in the past. We had a number of Lenovo Thinkpads in the past and when we needed to upgrade the wifi cards in them it also turned into a farce. (The company is now buying DELLs in future). Surely Lenovo must realise that this whitelist is harming only themselves? I fail to see any good reason why they need to impliment this? I know that this must have come up a million times, but maybe I think that if enough people speak out on this, Lenovo might listen? Also, I really would like one these when they come out and hope that Lenovo won't pull the same stunt!? It took me 10 minutes of my own time to write this post, but each time I've had issues with the whitelist it's taken me considerably more time to dig out a modded BIOS. Each of these times giving masses of frustration that what should be a 3 minute job ends up taking UPWARDS of an hour! Please sort it out Lenovo!!Read other answers
We have over 400 xp machines that we use in a medical field. We have been getting a lot of virus lately that I have been fixing remotely via LogmeIn Rescue. All machines are loaded the same.
So i am looking at some options that would allow me to install software such as Anti Exe that would stop any other .exe .com .msi etc files from running without password permission. So if we want to install a specific program we can givem them the password to install it. However if they get a virus and it trys to install it would stop it. Anti Exe with a whitelist works like we want but a little pricey to do for 400 users.
Virus programs work ok but still always dealing wit virus so if u stop any executable files from running unless we approve it with a password. All of the machines are running windows XP and the user is Adminstator privledges.

Until a week or so ago I was using Comcast restricted list to get rid of what I didn't want and just download. Afterwhich various senders would be filtered to folders.
Back on 10/2 Comcast started blocking my mailling lists. Turns out that I didn't have all members on the restricted list (limited to 200) and when these members bounced for not being on the lists (hadn't been for a long time but nothing ever happened until now) Comcast put the mailing lists on a SPAM list. Then their new upgrade caused other problems with the restricted list like anyone on it didn't get thru. I guess they are still working on it.

I came across an old HP model. At first I wanted to throw it out, but then I decided to breathe a second life into it. I bought a dual-band Wi-Fi module (Intel WM3B2915ABG) and an antenna - the module was initially unavailable. I tried to install it in a laptop, and I had a problem. My HP Compaq nx9020 laptop does not see this device because of the whitelist in the BIOS (error 104). Can you know how to solve my problem or have a BIOS no whitelist. The laptop is the latest version of BIOS F16 dated August 22, 2005. As I understand it, the mini PCI connector has replaced mini PCI E. Another 2.4 GHz / 5 GHz module for my laptop I did not find. And I really would like to work on modern Internet speeds, rather than on old low-speed modules.
If you are willing to take the risk, head on over to the BIOS mods forums.See the search below that I did on Google Chrome.https://www.google.nl/search?q=BIOS+Mod&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&client=firefox-b-ab&gfe_rd=cr&ei=CBbJWN7iO...
