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.)

On my EliteBook 8760W, the 4 aluminum buttons at the upper right are inoperative, with no LED. These 4 buttons (from L to R) are wifi, mute, quickweb, & calculator. I'm wondering if this is a software issue - some driver got mucked up; or maybe it's a hardware problem - a cable got loose from being jarred around. I know this is an old machine (2011), but any help would be greatly appreciated. This machine is the i7-2820qm, quadro 4000m, 16gb, if that helps. Thanks!

Hello, I'm not sure if I'm posting in the right area but I am going crazy with this: WHY DO I NEED the LSI HDA Modem on my HP Elitebook 8470P? What is the purpose of this modem? Can I uninstall it? Thank you

A:Why do i need LSI HDA Modem for my HP Elitebook 8470P?

Hi, It is a modem. It is very small program which runs in the background and nearly all older business laptops still have it. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. Therefore my suggestion: keep it. Regards.

You might have an option in the BIOS to adjust video memory allocation but on the Intel HD you are not going to run short. The video chip will take all the memory it needs from system memory. Your video would not perform any better even if you were to increase the allocated video memory.

Hello, I'd like to know if there's a list of notebooks that support this "switchable graphics" feature? Or at least if anyone can confirm or deny that the Elitebook 8470P supports Switchable Graphics? I've seen people struggling with it and I don't have my laptop with me at the moment, its in shipping. (I'm seeing family). So I can't really check. I've talked with an HP support representative and they did say it did but at the same time, I'm seeing people with Elitebooks 8570w struggling to find the "Switchable Graphics" option within the BIOS and its a big mess. I'm confused. I've googled this topic a lot and I found nothing that helps me. Specifications of said laptop:Intel Core i5 3360M 2.8Ghz (3.5Ghz Turbo)8GB DDR3Intel HD Graphics 4000 - Wanted to use it for power saving and QuickSync applications.AMD Radeon HD 7570M 1GB - Useful for blender and 3D Games.1600x900 Display

Hi: If those are the specs for the notebook you have, it has switchable graphics. However, there are two kinds of switchable graphics, and since I don't own a 8470p, I can't tell you which type you have. See these links for more info... http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c02731962 http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03048374

I have tried to upgrade an HP EliteBook 8470p from its default i5-3340M CPU to a i7-3632QM. Specifications (including thermal load, max. 35W in either cases) appear compatible, see i.e. http://ark.intel.com/products/71670/Intel-Core-i7-3632QM-Processor-6M-Cache-up-to-3_20-GHz-BGA and http://ark.intel.com/products/71257/Intel-Core-i5-3340M-Processor-3M-Cache-up-to-3_40-GHz ). Upon booting with the new CPU however the screen remains blank, and only caps lock / num lock will blink together 3 times, then pause, then again blink 3 times and repeat. From the documation it seems that this error code refers to 'memory modules problems', even if the same RAM works flawlessly with the i5 CPU. If I place this latter back, everything works normally again. Is there some special requirement that the i7-3632QM upgrade must satisfy? The new CPU should be supported by the QM77 chipset, and be offered in some EliteBook models; I've also tried to update the BIOS to the latest 68ICF ver. F.62 release (April '15), without improvements. Could there be a whitelist for supported CPU's, may it be somehow bypassed? Thanks,--Al

HiI have an Elitebook 8470p running Windows 7 Home Edition premium. I purchased the system used, but it was completely reconditioned to new status regarding the operating system. I tried to get into the administrator bios settings but I do not have the password or the sparekey answers for the administrator.I set up the protecttools and set up the user password and I can enter the bios as a user but can only make minimal changes because it is not an administrator.In Windows users and protecttools, however, that name is listed as an administrator.When I try to access the bios under the administrator, still not able to get in, as the administrator bios password still is unknown and is not the same password I set up in protecttools.Is there something that I am not setting up correctly in protecttools, or does it even give the ability to change the bios administrator password? I tried the preboot security option, but all that did was stop the computer from booting at the HP splashscreen as soon as the computer was turned on. I was able to boot by going to the user (not administrator) bios option and used the sparekey for the user booting.thanks

So a little background history, about a year ago I plugged in my headphones and no sound was coming through so I went to the playback devices and disabled the laptop speakers in attempt that it would default the headphones and play out of them, which it did.

About a year later I finally stopped using the headphones and enabled the speakers again but for some reason sound won't play out of the laptop anymore. I don't know what caused this problem but I for some reason if I play games on my laptop no sound comes out anymore. Using Skype and watching videos anywhere else works but as soon as I launch a game there's never any audio.

I have an EliteBook 8470P with the AMD Radeon 7570M display adapter.  I am looking to use to external displays as well as the laptop display.  Can I use both the VGA and Display port outputs to accomplish this without purchasing a docking station?  And are there any settings that I need to change to do this?

Hello all!I've performed a BIOS update on Saturday to the latest one on HP's website, and ever since the laptop takes a long time to boot, flashing the LED code for "System board failure" - 5 blinks - and after a while boots normally to Windows. Since I had recently added 4gb ram, I tried removing it and re-seating the original 4gb stick, to no avail.Tried disconnecting the battery for 30s as I read in another post, no luck.Tried resetting bios to default, no luck. Both memory test and HDD test pass without errors.  Should I try to re-flash the BIOS, or is there any explanation for this odd behavior? Thank you very much for any help!

Is your EliteBook 8470p notebook still in warranty?Check your warranty status Here.  It is indeed unusual for  an SSD to fail so quickly.Did you happen to have a habit of defragging your disk? That would cause a failure of the SSD. The SSD can be replaced without any cost if the warranty coverage is still in effect. Otherwise, it is time to purchase a SATA 2.5" format SSD, perthaps a Samsung 840 or 850EVO. and replace the failed SSSD with it. Once you have replaced the disk iit is time to use your recovery media to reinstall the operating system
