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.

A:Wifi Upgrade for Hp Pavilion 17-1215dx with Intel(R) Core(TM...

The model is actually 17-f215dx and it takes a mini-pcie.  Here's the problem. The motherboard can accept a dual channel 5ghz card BUT your model has only a single wireless antenna. See pages 3-4 of the Manual here. Manual  All wireless adapters except the Intel AC3160 have a single antenna. This will effectively block any effort to upgrade to something like the Intel 7260ac, which is what you would want, as mentioned by @visruth. The only way to do it would be to completely disassemble the laptop and string a second wireless antenna cable, which is a major chore...basically take it completely apart and rebuild.  Post back and let us know if you want to do the antenna or if you maybe want some links to usb wireless adapters.  Don't shoot the messenger here. Not my decision to build it like this just letting you know the lay of the land.  If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

Hi: The Broadcom BCM43142 802.11 b/g/n 1x1 Wi-Fi + Bluetooth 4.0 M.2 Combo Adapter is only a single band wlan card -- 2.4 GHz band only. Any time you see a wireless N card with a suffix ending in b/g/n, that means it is a single band (2.4 Ghz) card. Dual band wireless N cards have suffixes that end in a/b/g/n or a/g/n. (the 'a' denotes the 5.0 GHz wlreless frequency). You are going to have to open up the PC and check to see: 1. What the form factor of the current wlan card is (HMC or M.2).  2. Whether or not there are two antennas present. On dual band cards, you need two antennas for both frequencies to get the best reception for both the wireless and bluetooth. If your PC's current wlan card is the HMC form factor, then you can get this Broadcom dual band AC card. Broadcom BCM4352 802.11ac 2x2 Wi-Fi + Bluetooth 4.0 combo HP Part # 724935-001  Dual Band N: Broadcom BCM943228HMB 802.11abgn 2x2 Wi-Fi + BT 4.0 Combo Adapter     HP Part # 697316-001

A:Upgrading HP Pavilion Touchsmart 15-n022sa Wifi Card

Hi: HP removed the BIOS whitelists from their notebooks around 18-24 months ago, so the Intel 6230 card should work just fine. What may be a bigger issue as that many notebooks with the Realtek RTL8188EE 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi Adapter only have 1 antenna connected to the card, instead of the normal two. I can't tell you which models do, and which ones don't, and the service manual will normally show pictures in the wireless card removal and replacement section of the card always having 2 antennas connected to it. You would have to be willing and able to take the whole notebook apart including the display panel area, to install a second antenna (should one be required). A dual band card won't work right with only one antenna connected to it.

I'm having problems with my pavilion 17-G192DX.  when I have the wifi on, it works for about 10 minutes, then basically shuts down my home network - TV locks up, no other computers can access the internet.  As soon as I turn the wifi off, everything goes back to normal.  HP troubleshooting can find nothing...when the thing is working, that is.  I'd like to upgradethe wifi card with a dual band unit?  I'm thinking the Intel 7260 2x2.  Will that work in this computer?  Any other options?  P/N is V0Q01UA.

A:can I put a dual band wifi card in my pavilion 17-G192DX not...

Yes you can install any wireless card of the right form factor which for your laptop is an M.2 adapter. See the Manual here: http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c04655191 The 7260ac is a mini-pcie card and is not compatible but you could MAYBE install an Intel 8260ac card: https://www.amazon.com/Wireless-8260AC-8260NGW-Bluetooth-Wireless/dp/B01ERMBDCK/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&q... Start on p. 31 with removal of the back cover and read through p. 39. The hesitation is that, to install a dual band card you must have 2 antennae and on some HP models with lower-end wireless cards there is only one. So if you want to do this I recommend open it first and count antennae. If two, you can install the card linked above, which will perform as well as any wireless card you can buy.  Let us know if there are other questions.  If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as SOlution" to help others find it.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/...en_us/c01080268/loc:1&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en#N138

Your best option would be to save the money and either build or purchase a modern system.

A:upgrade video card for a Pavilion 550-126

Mathellyn, welcome to the forum. Here are the system requirements for Star Wars: Battlefront.  Your computer is only rated GD Adjusted Requirements.  So, you would have to upgrade several components to play at Recommended levels. The major problem is the power supply unit (PSU).  It is only 180W.  Most of the newer video cards require at least 400W.  Here is an examle of a card that would work, but it requires at least 400W to operate properly. Please click the "Thumbs up + button" if I have helped you and click "Accept as Solution" if your problem is solved.

I have been researching how to upgrade the network card on this laptop.  The dx5 manual shows in its list of approved wireless cards that with an intel system I need a Broadcom 4322 802.11a/b/g/n card.  I looked up this card at several sites and they all say they are for compacs or elite books.  Will this card be ok for my dv5 or is there another option?

Hello, I've wanted to upgrade my PC's GFX card for a very long time and just learned that it IS in fact possible to upgrade, but if the card is too powerful I will need to upgrade everything else as well. I have never attempted upgrading a PC before, but My dv6 has a GeForce GT 320M GPU card and I would like to upgrade because I want to play games without having a large amount of lag. Is it possible for me to upgrade to a higher GPU without having to replace everything else inside of my computer?And which of these Cards would I be able to upgrade to?(again I am very new to this): http://www.geforce.com/hardware Thank you for listening

A:HP Pavilion Dv6 Graphics Card Upgrade help

Hate to burst your bubble but no it is not possible to upgrade. Not sure where you got that information. The video chip in the laptop is soldered to the motherboard. There is no place to put a video "card". I also don't think there is a dv6 with a GT 320M or that such is a "thing".

Please suggest a graphics card for me. I have the integrated AMD Radion R7 that came with the motherboard when I purchased the desktop a couple of years ago. Max resolution appears to be 1600x1200.  I want to upgrade my monitors (two) and the graphics card to better support my Adobe Lightfoot work.  I do not and never will do any gaming.  The desktop's power supply is 300W. I'd like to keep the card price under $100. I have not picked out monitors so I don't know what my target resolution will be, but 1600x1200 is too low. Thanks.

Hi: There are no graphics 'cards' in your notebook. There is a GPU which is soldered and integrated onto the motherboard. The only way to upgrade the graphics, would be to replace the motherboard with one listed in the service manual which may have better graphics. This is normally an expensive and labor intensive project. The maximum amount of memory you can install according to chapter 1 of the service manual is 12 GB. http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c03939658

A:HP - Pavilion 15-ab150sa 15.6" Laptop RAM UPGRADE QUESTION

Unfortunately HP has not posted a Manual for your specific model. The Star Wars thing is the 15t-ab100 series and is the same physical case and layout, just Intel not AMD. There is an active discussion board on the Star Wars model and we know from user experience it can be upgraded to 16 gigs and it also comes with a single 8 gig module and an open slot.  I think this might be your Manual although it is found under 15z-ab000 designation, the processor A8-7410 and specs and configuration described in the manual appear to be the same as yours: Manual It specifically says: Supports up to 16 GB of system RAM in the following configurations. I do not work for HP. I am a fellow end user who has some knowledge based on doing this for quite a few years. I have never come across a computer that will take an 8 gig module and has an open slot for memory that will not accept a second 8 gig module for a total of 16 gigs. If you buy the 8 gig module and it does not work I will buy it from you for a reasonable current retail value. Just PM me.  Be aware that memory upgrade is not an authorized thing for self-help. The warranty may or may not remain intact. Also be aware that the upgrade from 8 gigs to 16 gigs does not change the performance of the machine much, if at all for most computer users and may well be a waste of money. But if you do heavy photo or video production work, lay down music tracks or compile large batches of Code you can use 1... Read more

I'm not sure exactly how old my computer is but it runs pretty decent and i can't afford anything else right now. i installed the sims3 and i got an error message saying i need to upgrade my video card to something that supports Pixel 2 Shading. I've been looking on tiger direct for awhile and can't figure out how to know which cards support that or which cards would be compatible with my computer?

Also, while i have the computer open i figure it'd be a good idea to put more ram in there, which i hear is pretty simple. I've never upgraded a computer. i've only been inside a computer to remove hard drives. im just wondering if its going to be too difficult for me to install the video card myself?

the sims 3 system requierments:
* 2.0 GHz P4 processor or equivalent
* 1 GB RAM
* A 128 MB Video Card with support for Pixel Shader 2.0
* The latest version of DirectX 9.0c
* Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2
* At least 6.1 GB of hard drive space with at least 1 GB of
additional space for custom content and saved games

my computer specs: hp pavilion a420n
*2.16 ghz 3000+ AMD Anthlon xp processor
* 512 mb PC2700 DDR SDRAM memory
* VIA/S3G UniChrome IGP video card in PCI bus 1
* XP service pack 3
*160GB hard drive with 53GB free space

Thanks for reading! hope u can help

if you have the version with the Asus motherboard A7V5X-LA, you are working with an AGP 4x/8x interface. They are getting scarce, but this is about as good as it gets unless you find one of the 3850's or the Geforce 9600 AGP. this one is SM3.0

A:Pavilion p6674y Graphics card upgrade

@Maggietron?, welcome to the forum. Newer video cards require UEFI in the motherboard instead of a standard/Legacy BIOS.  HP didn't begin using UEFI until mid-October, 2012.  The motherboard can't be upgraded to UEFI.  The last video cards that didn't require UEFI were the GTX 660/670's. I suggest contacting EVGA's Tech Support (1-888-881-3842) for help with choosing the best card for your system.  They are the experts on their products.   Also, they can tell you the power requirements of the card that they recommend. Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

Hi All, I recently purchased a GTX1060 GPU card from nVidia on-line in an attempt to upgrade the capabilties of my 4 year old machine (from an MSI GeForce GT640) so that I'd be able to play Fallout 4 and Witcher 3 (both of which bring my poor old GT640 to its knees -- even on the lowest resolution settings).  It fits in the case and powers up (yes, I did plug in the 6-pin connector from the PSU), and the 600W PSU is adequate for the task, but I'm starting to think that I probably have a Motherboard compatibility issue. When I install the card and turn on the PC, it hangs at the setup splash screen (a common problem from what I've already read on these forums) and goes no further (keyboard and mouse are unresponsive at that point).  I've contacted nVidia support, and they've suggested a couple of BIOS changes (Disable Secure Boot, Enable Legacy/CSM Mode, and toggling BIOS Selection Mode between UEFI and Legacy modes), but when I access the HP Setup Utility (F10 upon boot-up with GT640 card installed), these options are not available to me. Is there any way for me to access the BIOS settings that nVidia has indicated I should be adjusting? Is this GPU card simply not at all compatible with my Motherboard? System Specs: HP Model Number: B4J28AV#ABA (Pavilion HPE h8-1380t)Motherboard: Pegatron 2ACE(Socket 0); 1.08; Intel Sandy Bridge-E Rev. 07; Intel Southbridge X79 Rev. 05BIOS: AMI 7.15CPU: Intel Core i7 3930K (3.2 GHz)OS: Windows 7 Profes...

A:Video Card Upgrade for Pavilion HPE h8-1380t

Hi, The h8 1380t has a Pegatron, "Pittsburgh" motherboard. You could try to find a later revision of this system board. I also have an Envy 810-150se with a "Pittsburgh2" system board that has UEFI. I am running an Nvidia GTX 970 FTW EVGA card with great results. You would have to verify that the revision board would fit in your chassis. Other options are: 1. New Envy shipping with Win 7 Pro, or 2. Falcon Northwest. Swapping in a main stream system board from Asus, or Gigabyte, or Asrock is difficult at best. Your gonna have to change other components such as the processor, heat sink, fan and memory. You will probably have to purchase an OEM version of Win 7 Pro.  It gets pretty expensive when you do the math on all of the changes you will have to make. There is no guarantee you can find a main stream system board having the correct standoffs matching your h8-1380t chassis. Avoid a Skylake processor if you can unless you don't mind jumping through a few additional hoops to install Win 7. Please see this article and go here for the workaround to solve the win 7 installation problem. Jay
