Q: Connect HP Spectre x360 to Dual HP 21kd monitors

I would like to connect my HP laptop to dual monitors. I have the following ports: On HP Spectre x360:1 HDMI port1 Mini DisplayPort3 USD 3.0 ports On each HP 21kd monitor:1 VGA port1 DVI-D port My question is: what is the cleanest, fastest/recommended way to hook up to both? I have a number of options--for instance, MiniDisplay to VGA, HDMI to VGA, MiniDisplay to DVI, etc. I am not concerned about whether audio is transmitted or not. Ideally, I would like to keep as many USB ports open as possible. Thanks,Brad

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 will buy the spectre x360 if I can confirm it supports my setup: I need to connect 2 external monitors (both with thunderbolt 3 to mDP cable). This is possible, right? Then, and that is what i cannot confirm anywhere, is there a way to charge the spectre without disconnecting one of the screens? I am OK if that requires a special adapter (I have seen thunderbolt to hdmi atapters where you can connect a USB-C charger ). I just really need to confirm this setup is possible, as my setup require 3 screens (2 + spectre's)  and don't want to disconnect a screen to charge the spectre.One battery charge is not enough to last me the whole day.

A:Spectre x360 2 external monitors and charging

The Spectre x360 has two USB Type-C power connector and Thunderbolt ports. You can connect them to two displays that has a USB-Type-C connector. You will have to disconnect one to charge the Spectre. It is an ultrabook, and not chargeable with the single USB 3.0 port. Displays with thunderbolt portshttps://www.google.nl/search?q=LCD+displays+with+thunderbolt+ports&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&client=firefox-... The main battery in the Spectre 360x is stated to provide up to 15 hours of use.  There is an accessory http://store.hp.com/us/en/pdp/hp-powerup-backpack available that will provide plenty of power for your ultrabook.

I've just purchased a new Spectre X360 15T. I'm hoping to run two monitors. I'd like to plug one into the HDMI and one into one of the USBC plugs. This will allows me to keep the laptop plugged in while I'm at my desk. I'm hoping to use a USBC to HDMI cable like this one: https://www.amazon.com/CHOETECH-Thunderbolt-Compatible-MacBook-ChromeBook/dp/B01LYS3Q5A/ref=sr_1_3?s... Is there any reason this shouldn't work?

Considering this new revision has been out for about a couple months now, I am really surprised that no one has posted about this yet. My question is simply exactly as the title says. Does the newest HP Spectre x360 13-w0XX that has the new Kaby Lake i7 support two 4k displays? I know that because of having Thunderbolt 3 ports, it has the right connections to support it. I guess the real question is can the Intel Graphics 620 support that? I know it can support one 4k display, but not seen anything about dual 4k displays.  I just recently purchased this lap top, and I love it so far. However 1 of the main reasons I bought it was because it was 1 of very few lap tops on the market with Thunderbolt 3. I think the only Windows laptop that had not only 1 but 2 of them. So if this laptop has the ports to support dual 4k without a graphics card that can, then that will be incredibly disappointing.

Hey everybody, I have a problem with my HP Spectre x360 (13-4190nd) that I bought this January. The laptop has an issue with connecting to devices true the usb ports or hdmi (it doesn't transfer the sound to the external screen). It doesn't connect to the Samsung Galaxy SII, S6, S7, S7 edge, Iphone 4 or the Go Pro 4 Silver. It does charge the device that is connected to the laptop, but it doesn't 'recognize' it and I can't see the stuff that's on the device. I did install some Samsung software (usb drivers from the Samsung site) a couple of weeks ago and then it finally connected to the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the go pro. But when I tried to connected the devices again a couple of days ago it didn't work anymore and also after reinstalling the software it still didn't work. Does anybody know what can be the problem? Is this a common issue for this laptop or what software can I install to make sure it recognizes the devices?  Kind regards, Michelle

So I have had this HP Spectre for about a year now and it does not connect to my home internet unless I restart the modem. I restart the modem and it will work for a while. If i ever turn my laptop off or sometimes even close the laptop the internet will not connect and I will have to go unplug and replug the modem. This is extremely frustrating especially because of how expensive this thing was. Samsung Galaxy, siblings mac's, siblings iphones, even my Xbox One all connect to the internet but it is only this computer that always has a problem. I moved away for a couple months and at the house I was staying at my laptop connected to the internet with no such problems. I'm kind of assuming it's some kind of problem with this laptops adapter and my internet but that  makes no sense because my internet is fine with all of my other devices.  I have the latest LAN driver installed as well. This is a rather annoying problem and any insight would be much appreciated.

My Spectre x360 will not connect to my home network after I have restarted it. The connection will work if I power the machine down, and then turn it on. Or, if I restart it, I have to close the lid (enter sleep mode) and then open it again to connect to my network. I have tried installing the updated drivers provided by HP as well as Intel for the wireless card, but neither of them solved the issue. The SSID for my home network is not broadcasted, and I have the option selected to connect to the network even if the name is not being broadcast. I've also tried unchecking the setting to allow the network adapter to be turned off to to save save power, as well as unchecking fast startup, which both did not work.

Bought two Spectre x360 replacing two Windows 7 machines.  Bus powered USB devices do not work with the Spectre X360.  They connect/disconnect every 5-30 seconds.  The devices worked without issue on multiple Windows 7 machines, but will not work on either Spectre X360.  Devices are: USB powered hard drive (USB 3.0), and a software key fob (USB 2.0).  The only way I could get the devices to stay connected to either Spectre X360 is to first connect a powered USB 3.0 hub, and have the USB devices connected to the hub. Here is what I tried without success:1.

I have just purchased a Lenovo Y900i and I am having an issue with connecting dual monitors on my PC.My computer has two HDMI ports and one VGA port. However, only one HDMI port actually seems to work and the VGA does not.I have test both monitors and neither monitor is faulty.When I connect the monitors to the non-working HDMI port or to the VGA; they seem to sense that they are connected to something, but obviously do not display anything. However, when I go to the display options in System, it does not detect the monitor.I have also tried going into the NVDIA Control Panel to try to detect the device, but that is not working either.I have tried changing resolution settings, but to no avail. I have checked BIOS and there seems to be nothing about display or port options that would assist me in activating any particular port.I have a feeling that the issue has something to do with adaptor settings, but alas I am not tech savvy enough to figure this one out by myself.Currently both monitors are connected to HDMI ports.Model: Lenovo Y900iOperating System: Windows 10Graphics Card: NVDIA GeForce GTX 1080

Having just upgraded from XP using the Nvidia dual monitor desktops for years, I was surprised to find Windows 7 has this feature in-built with the added bonus of slideshow desktop images C00L!
So beyond Win7 eye candy which is better, Does it come down to games running faster under the Nvidia dual desktops, what is the general preference here?

A:Is Nvidia dual monitors a poor cousin to Windows 7 dual monitors?..

afaik, there is no real performance difference, as all stuff is handled by the nvidia driver anyway.

And of course the more monitors the higher performance hit as there is more screen surface to work on (the same as increasing resolution).

Btw, the main pityfall of the multiple monitors is that the taskbar is only in the primary monitor, but there are a ton of good third party programs that can handle this, like Actual Multiple Monitors.

What's the difference between the HP Spectre x360 and the HP Envy x360? They both look the same.The only noticeable difference is that HP Spectre x360 has a Radiance Infinity display, while HP Envy x360 has an IPS display. Having the same specs, except for the display, why is the Spectre x360 more expensive than the Envy x360 ? Moreover, I thought that IPS is better than TN, which is my guess that is the technology used for the Radiance Infinity.

The 1-minute hold of the power switch worked for me, but it is darn hard to do because of the somewhat inconvenient power switch position - and if you waver for a moment then the 60 seconds starts again. I found it easiest to turn the 360 on its side on a table and then it is easier to hold the switch down for the full minute uninterrupted. This for me only points out the importance for manufacturers to provide a HARD RESET capability through an unfolded paperclip or the like. C'mon guys, give us what we need to maintain our products!

I did try to contact support and was immediatly cut off once i gave them my serial number, or offered to pay for support.

At first I thought it was just rubbing against the sleeve, but after further examination, that is not the case. If this occurs with other models of the Spectre, it is a bad build quality, I am not sure which component is under there, but I want to know if the creaking noise is normal with only a slight press along the text area. Thanks.

Hello, Last winter purchased a convertible lenovo laptop. The first one had faulty hinges, I had it replaced on the same day I brought it in and the second one had faulty hinges and a faulty touchpad. So, I decided to ditch the cheaper computers and splurged on a HP spectre x360 from Best Buy. I live 200 kilometres away from large retail stores like this so getting back and forth is quite difficult, Staples was very understanding about the Lenovo laptops, however Best Buy told me there was nothing I could do when I described the problems I was having with my brand new HP. Several months went by and I avoided using the computer as much as possible in order to avoid facing the mistake I made in purchasing it. Eventually, my old computer became completely obsolete and I had no choice but use this HP.  My problems were not limited in any way. They ranged from an extremely annoying touchpad that sounded loose and made strange noises, the fact that the screen was closing on an odd angle, and the fact the the screen could barely stay open. A slight touch or even shifting the laptop would cause the screen to move. I could forgive these flaws if I had abused this computer or if it had received heavy usage, however I barely even turned the thing on. I contacted HP support and I must admit that they were polite, friendly and had my return materials sent very quickly.  My first bad sign involving the shipping process was the fact tha... Read more

Upon opening the notebook on my desk, a series of cracks surfaced on the upper-left bezel of the screen, and extended across the screen. I keep my notebook for the most part on my desk, and when I travel, I put in the HP leather case, and in a well-paded bag. I've owned this notebook since August last year, and it has performed excellently besides the occaisonal loud fan noise and overheat.  I talked with a helpful HP Customer Support Rep, and I was told that if I were to send in my notebook, and screen damage will be presumed inflicted by the customer. I have also been in contact with the HP Executive board, but their reply did not grant me any help. I would like to know if I can send in my notebook for a proper examination, or if I can speak with a case manager on this issue. I really do not want to file a complaint to the BBB, but I feel that will be necessary if the material defect is to be assumed a damage on my part. Thank you in advance. I will include pictures of my display, as well as pictures of the siding to prove the lack of physical/blunt damage.

Just finished setting up my second Spectre x360 15t. The first one was a driver and screen flickering mess. As I'm finishing putting it through it's paces by running audio with a few tunes through Spotify and then over to Netflix to check dialogue, I've become aware that the fan has been running for some time. When I picked it up to feel the underside I was quite dismayed to feel how hot this thing was. Not cozy up to the fire hot but call the fire department hot. It was on a Xpad which was starting to get a bit toasty itself. No way this could ever sit directly on my lap. I know this is an ultrabook. I know i7 processors run warm under load but this fella gets HOT. I'm coming off a Spectre 13t with an i5 which is just as tight a unit as this one, but it never reached this kind of hot. I'm humorously concerned if I can put this on my desk while under heavy load without melting the finish off. Is anyone else experiencing similar circumstances? I'd appreciate any feedback. Thanks.

HP's lack of quality control is completely unacceptable and inexcusable, especially given the cost of the Spectre x360 line.I went through 5 (FIVE!) 13-inch Spectre x360's. All but one exhibited very loose trackpads (even very light taps will physically move the trackpad down and have an annoying loose click sound when taking your finger off of it). The one with an okay trackpad had USB-C issues. The trackpad -- arguable THE most important part of a laptop -- now feels like garbage. Hell, there are $200 Windows laptops and Chromebooks that have better trackpads than this $1,200 thing.It's extremely frustrating and disappointing. I REALLY wanted for the Spectre x360 to be my laptop (especially considering there's no other 2-in-1 out there that looks this good and is priced as nicely). Looks like the Lenovo Yoga 720 is next on my list. Just wish it had IR cameras for facial logins.

Pressing the power button causes the caps lock light to flash 5.3 (and the F5 keyboard light stays on constantly). After a few minutes, fan whirring noises can be heard but the screen remains black. I've followed all of the offered the troubleshooting steps (hard reset; attaching to external monitor.. etc.) but to no avail. 6 months over warranty and I'm incredibly worried and frustrated given the prevalence of similar issues with the Spectre x360 across the forum and given this was my first laptop purchase after much scrimping and saving. Was anticipating using this for at least 3 years and the experience has made me wary of what I believed to be a reputable and trustworthy brand. Echoing the thoughts of others with similar problems, I'm hoping for some resolution to this detrimental problem that does not push the price of purchase given that this appears to be a problem across the product!

Hey guys! I bought my new ash silver HP spectre x360 13" recently and Ive discovered som faults in the production. I am now wondering if anyone else noticed these faults and if I could/should exchange my example for a new proper one ( I do genuenly love it) Firstly, it is not balanced proberly when sitting on a flat surface. Ive made a video showcasing it. Which can be seen below. This is a major annoyance for me, simply cant stop thinking about it.. https://youtu.be/JOVhRYA1Fvg?t=248. Secondly, there seem to be something loose within the trackpad. A click noise is produced when using it for scrolling. This makes it virtually impossible to use silently while someone else is trying to sleep next to me.. Example below https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YHY6_oatLuE And Thirdly. Some users have been asking me if i was having any battery drain issues. I did test it once, full charge 100%, laptop turned off. 8 hours later it still had 100% so no issues there for me. Is it possible to get a spectre x360 13" without any of these issues?

Unfortunately our machine is 1 year + 1 month old and they won't give us a break on the repair. They estimate that it would be $300. I agree with many folks on this topic that this is a design issue and they need to do a recall instead of having their customers pay to replace the faulty parts.

I need to upgrade ssd to 512gb, have seen posts on other variants but dont know how important the 4050na number is? Also most posts were about a year old and so i wondered if anyone had more uptodate experience? The Samsung seem to have many models, just paying more for faster read/write speeds but dont know how important this is and whether machine can support any or all of these speeds?
