A:need hp laptop 15-ac040tu drivers for windows 7 32 bit

HP does not support your model for 32 bit operating systems. That is going to be a very hard model to find drivers for. See if these few work... First install the Intel chipset driver and reboot.  2nd file on the page. https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/20775/Intel-Chipset-Device-Software-INF-Update-Utility- Next, try this graphics driver...first one on the list is 32 bit. https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25274/Intel-Iris-Iris-Pro-and-HD-Graphics-Production-Drive... USB 3:  Download, unzip and run the setup.exe file.  The 32 bit drivers are in this file too. https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/24896/USB-3-0-Intel-USB-3-0-Driver-for-Intel-NUC Then for a lot of the other devices, you can try the W7 32 bit drivers from the HP Probook 450 G2.  Do not use the BIOS or firmware files. http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/readIndex?sp4ts.oid=6943827&swLangOid=8&swEnvOid=4053    Hope this helps, for any further queries reply to the post and feel free to join us again  **Click the White Thumbs Up Button on the right to say Thanks**Make it easier for other people to find solutions by marking a Reply 'Accept as Solution' if it solves your problem. Thank You,GBL84I am not an HP Employee

Recently I received a new set of wireless, bluetooth headphones as a Father's day gift. I have successfully paired the headphones to my smartphone and my laptop, Acer Aspire running Windows 8.1. I have no problems using the phones with the smartphone, but the laptop is my problem. The "Control Panel" under "Sound" shows the phones, but they are designated as "Disconnected". Nothing I do can activate the device, and no help from MS and their literature shows me nothing beyond what I've already done. Under "Devices and Printers", the phones are shown as recognized but still they don't work. I don't know if I just have not found the correct toggle to turn on the phones or if it's something else. I'd hate to return the headphones since they were a gift from the "kids", but if these cannot be useful, I have no choice. Please help!!!!

Hey guys,

So i spent the entire day trying to figure out why my Bluetooth installed fine but after one restart it disappeared and it wouldn't come back. I finally figured it out that the FN+F2 (wireless/bluetooth switches) is what enables/disabled it HAHAHAHAHA.

default (after startup): WiFi on / BT off
first time: WiFi on / BT ON yay~!
second time: WiFi off / BT on
third time: WiFi off / BT off

and repeat.

I hope this helps people with their bluetooth issues =)

Windows 8 was able to install all my Function Keys so I'm going to assume this will be the case for others. Good luck

How do I know which GPU currently works? And can I make the Radeon work always instead of the 4600?

Thanks!

If the drivers are setup correctly you should be able to right click anywhere on the desktop and the pop-up menu should show links to the AMD utilites.

Preinstalled Windows version must not be activated. All new Toshiba notebooks offered with preinstalled Windows OS are offered with preinstalled recovery image designed for certain notebook model. All you need is internet connection.

This preinstalled version contains product key and it must not be activated. It is very important to create bootable recovery media (USB or DVD) and make recovery image back-up. This recovery media can be used for recovery image installation.

A couple years ago I bought a used Dell Latitude D630 with Win 7 Pro 64-bit SP1. Its COA sticker shows originally Vista (yech) though.

Last week the motherboard failed. Bought another used D630 with no OS (and an XP Pro COA) and swapped in my hard drive and RAM. Bios updated to A19. But I can't re-activate Windows: it shows "Not Genuine" with the usual nags. I don't have the original disc that was used to install Win 7, but did purchase an inexpensive Dell Reinstallation disc for my OS.

I'm going to make a backup image of the HD before messing with the reinstall disc. Am I going to have to wipe my HD and use the reinstall disc in order to properly activate Windows? Or am I out of luck entirely and have to buy a new copy of Win 7 Pro?

Hello,

I'm helping a friend who has purchased a Gateway laptop. The laptop, of course, came bundled with a whole bunch of bloatware that my friend doesn't need. I told him that I would re-install Vista to get rid of it. Unfortunately, the Gateway laptop didn't come with a Vista re-installation CD (is this normal?) so I decided to use my own copy of Vista that came with my Dell desktop.

The installation went fine and I was able to install all the device drivers and update Windows. However, I'm unable to activate Windows. I'm entering the product key found on the sticker on the back of the laptop but Windows will just say:

"The product key you have entered does not appear to be a valid Windows Vista product key"

After doing some Google research I've found that you shouldn't use a CD from another manufacturer to reinstall the O.S. - Why doesn't Gateway include CDs with their laptops!?!?

Anyways, is there some way I can activate Windows (perhaps by calling Microsoft) or do I have to re-install from the Gateway recovery partition with all the bloatware??

Thanks a million!

A:Can't Activate Vista on Gateway Laptop

I should add that the Dell CD is for Windows Vista Home Premium 32 bit

Hi there. I'm hopeful you can help me with my problem.

I recently purchased a new MSI laptop with Windows 10 Home Edition already installed. I asked the authorized re-seller to perform a clean Windows installation so as not to have to deal with bloatware.

When my laptop arrived, I skipped the activation step when I first booted it up - I didn't have a disk or email receipt with the product key, after all, and from what I understand, with Windows 10 manufacturers no longer put a sticker on the device with the product key. Then I started getting nag messages telling me Windows wasn't activated. When I went to Settings, it said that my product key is already in use by another PC. Any attempts to "change product key" result in freezing the Settings window, and I have to go to the Task Manager to end the task.

I have been working with both MSI and the re-seller to try to figure out how to fix this, but it's taking some time and I'm getting impatient... and therefore, I have been researching on my own as well. But it would seem that the re-seller messed up the clean installation, possibly by using an incorrect version of Windows, such as Professional.

My laptop did not arrive with a Windows disk. I have 2 drives - a small SSD on which Windows is installed, and a large secondary hard drive. Disk management is showing a recovery partition on both drives, but they have 100% free space.

So, I have many questions, but these are my 2 big ones:

A:switched laptop harddrives. can't activate windows.

The Windows installation provided with a computer is licensed for that computer alone, unless it is a full retail version of Windows. If the laptops do not have a COA label containing the product key, the Windows may not be a legitimate installation.If you really need to use the hard drives the other way around to how they were supplied, the way to do it would be to image each drive and transfer the images between drives. That way the Windows belonging to each computer stays with that computer, and the only hardware change being the hard drive should not trigger activation.

Hi there,

First time poster here , hope y'all are having a nice festive season ^^

I'm currently using the Lenovo Ideapad Z500 (Model Number 20202) which I bought over a year ago (so expired warranty). When I bought it, I was told that it would come with a NVIDIA? GeForce? GT 635M 1-2GB graphics card (or something similar) along with Intel 4000HD integrated graphics. However, I can see no trace of the card in the system apart from in the manuals provided.

In Device Manager, only Intel 4000HD is present and there are no errors (apart from in the Bluetooth Audio). Dxdiag and programs like Speccy say I've only got that as well. I can't run the Nvidia compatibility scanner as it's not compatible with Win8 or 8.1 and attempting to install a Lenovo specific Nvidia driver comes up with an error saying I have no compatible hardware. I've tried going into the insydeH20 BIOS thingy but I have no idea how to get into the advanced settings to check display settings.

Everything points to it not existing but the service center I've called and visited insists it's in there and working (which it clearly isn't as I can't even access the Nvidia control panel).

Does anyone have any ideas as to how to check if it's actually present (without opening it up) and how to switch it to the Nvidia card if it is indeed in there somewhere?

Many thanks!

A:Can't activate/locate Nvidia Graphics card in laptop

On the Win 7 machine when I click the the bluetooth icon in the systray the option to 'Allow a Device to connect' is greyed-out and there is no alert that a device is trying to connect.

I bought a new HP notebook three months ago, March, 2016.  After buying a state of the art Bose bluetooth speaker, I realized my notebook is not bluetooth capable.  Really?  Seriously? This limitation was not shared or apparent in any product information.  Nor was it shared with me by the Best Buy store associate.  I don't think he knew. Bluetooth is not new technology and today, it is essential.  What a disappointment.  HP notebook buyers beware!

A:Bluetooth on laptop is gone

Hi,

It would help if you could provide some details about your computer/laptop?

System Info - See Your System Specs

Is there a bluetooth button above the keyboard? Check to see that it is on.

Hey guysss, i've had my Asus F6A laptop for about a month now and have only just realised i should test out the bluetooth TODAY. Unfortunately, theres seem to be no bluetooth on the laptop even though is apparently "integrated bluetooth". I opened the manual book and acording to the book when i press Fn F2 it shud turn it on. However, when i do this, this is ONLY for wireless lan, there is actually no bluetooth function together. Anybody got any ideas how to "activate" bluetooth or sumthing???

THanksssss
 

A:No bluetooth on laptop.....??

Check the BIOS to make sure it's enabled there. Verify the adapter shows up in Device Manager as well.

A:Does my laptop have bluetooth

You're very welcome. Unfortunately, that model wlan adapter is a single band (2.4 GHz) non-bluetooth equipped wireless network adapter. Your notebook does not come with built in bluetooth networking capability.

I have an hp G60-445DX I want to Bluetooth pitchers & music with an LG Rumor2 it has Bluetooth but the laptop don't what I have to do to make this work

 

A:Bluetooth/Laptop

That model doesn't have a Bluetooth adapter, so you'd first have to buy and install one. Some phones require software to be installed in order to transfer data, and some simply don't support it. Others only allow transfers to and from flash memory cards. The first step should be to review your phone's manual, and contact your cell provider with any questions as features can vary by phone and provider.

A:Does this laptop have Bluetooth?

Hi: Below is the link to the product specs page for your notebook. http://support.hp.com/us-en/product/HP-Pavilion-17-f100-Notebook-PC-series/7234909/model/7415848/document/c04433088/ It does not come with built in bluetooth, or that feature would have been listed along with the 1x1 802.11b/g/n WLAN wireless connectivity specification. You can purchase an external usb bluetooth adapter, or if you are willing and able to take the whole notebook apart to get to the wireless card, you can switch it out for the Broadcom BCM43142 802.11 bgn 1x1 Wi-Fi + BT4.0 HMC combo adapter, or the Realtek RT8723BE 802.11bgn 1x1 Wi-Fi + BT4.0 Combo Adapter. http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c04427554
