Hello, I have a customer that wants to upgrade his internal wifi card to a dual band AC card. I purchased the intel sual band wireless AC 3160 card and got the unsupported card bios error. Is there any dual band AC cards that work with this laptop? I checked the service guide and can't find anything but who knows how up to date that is. Thanks!
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.

Hello, The Pavilion 27-A009 has great specs, but shipped with a single band N wifi adatpers (Believe it is a 2230 Intel). Looking to upgrade to something like an Intel 7260 which does dual band and AC. First of all, does the Pavilion 27-A009 do bios whitelisting against wifi boards? If not, what do people recommend? Is the Intel 7260 a good choice? Can get one from Ebay for $20 or so. Will this void my warranty? I have a Care Pack as well, but really would like to upgrade the wifi. Thank you!Read other answers

Ok so i have a shot in the dark question, I am not sure on what parts are avalable for this laptop. I just picked this up on a trade and so far has been a pretty decent little machine.

My question is, is there a different internal wifi card i can replace the stock on with that will give me access to both 2.4 ghz and 5.0 ghz. I have been considering going the usb adapter route for both wifi bands but would like to keep some usb ports avalable without needing to get a small hub. Any info would be Appreciated! Thanks
Hi: Below is the link to the service manual for your notebook. http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c03593667 Unfortunately the 3 supported wireless cards listed in chapter 3 are all single band cards.

My brother has this computer and i'm trying to help him upgrade.
CPU Upgrade - Intel Q8300 Quad core, or just get a dual core?
Memory - it says supports up to 4GB but that seems rather low, which begs the question: Should I get the quad core processor for my brother or just a dual core? he doesnt play much video games, maybe the occasional League of Legends with me.
Graphics- Dont know what the max is for this. Completly lost.
Honestly I would not waste either time or money on that system. The cpu you referenced is not on the supported list for that mb so, no you cannot use it. Here is a link to the mb page;

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.

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".Read other 3 answers

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 moreRead other 9 answers

@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.

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?

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. JayRead other 6 answers

Should not run into a problem. You need to make some kind of recovery media or backup to put software on the new drive, but otherwise just put it physically in the place where the old hard drive is, boot up and install your software to it.

Hi, I am thinking about upgrading the motherboard on my HP Pavilion 17-e020us PC. The manual (http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c04069163.pdf) has a list of supported processors, and I am unsure which one to choose. The computer currently has an Intel Core i3-3110M processor with Windows 10 64-bit. I am deciding between the Intel Core i7-3632QM and the Intel Core i5-3230M (The processor's TDP has to be 35 W or I have to get a new power supply). You can view a comparison of the two processors and the one currently in the system here: http://ark.intel.com/compare/71670,72056,65700. Although the i7 has a lower base frequency, it has more cores; the opposite is true for the i5. Could you please tell me which processor I should pick (I will get the corresponding motherboard)? Here are the main things I do on the PC: web browsing in Edge or Chrome, using Microsoft Office, and developing software with Microsoft Visual Studio 2015 (which means I frequently use tablet and mobile emulators to test my app -- it also means I need it to compile quickly and be good with rendering graphics (for designing apps /games)). In additon, could you please tell me which motherboard from the ones in the manual (page 34 in PDF, page is numbered 24 in bottom-left corner)? Thank you very much to all who answer.
Hi, Normally we use 3 C's rule to select a processor. They are Cache, Core and Clock. In this case, I would pick 6 MB Cache processor. It also has more Core and Clock is a bit slower but many applications, the slowing factor is not from processor but from other factor namely HDD. Regards.Read other 5 answers

If yes , can you please tell me which 802.11ac/b/g/n wifi card would be an HP Compatible Upgrade ?
Thank you .
USB dongles generally come with a little mini-driver disk but they usually use a common chipset like Broadcom or Atheros for which Windows will likely just provide the driver and it will be plug and playRead other 10 answers
Hello All, I bought my laptop ( HP 15 AC026TX in india) last year July. It came with Broadcom BCM43142 1x1BGN wlan card with 1 antenna. I want to upgrade my card to an Intel card as I mostly use Linux OS and Broadcom drivers has issues in Linux. But I've been reading about Bios Whitelisting. So, please let me know if my model of laptop has Whitelisting or not ? If not, Can I buy a generic intel wireless-n card and use in my laptop? or should it be hp ceritified intel card? Thanks & Regards

We are experiencing wifi interference between our probook and Netgear AC791 Jet Pack in some RV parks where we stay. The jetpack can use 5 ghz as can all our other devices, our probook can't. The jetpack can transmit on both, but is much slower on dual band than on either 2.4 or 5 ghz. so, how much effort and is it possible to upgrade the wifi in our probook to 5 ghz? Thanks for any direction you can provide.
GrumpyOldTimer Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums! Sorry, but with laptops, the WiFi is integrated into the system board with a chipset. This is not a customer-replaceable part.Read other 1 answers
