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.)

My hard drive is becoming unreliable.  I would like to replace it with a SSDD. Can I do this? Can I run a two-drive system?And what 250-500 GB SSDD drive would be plug and play? Should I upgrade to Win 10 before or after drive change/addition?

After this computer upgraded to Windows 10 (too late to revert, wipe and reinstall isn't an option) we have had an issue with the USB ports acting correctly.  When looking at the device manager, we noticed that there was a device that was having issues: USB xHCI Compliant Host Controller.  Under the hardware ID, it was listed as: PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_8C31&SUBSYS_2B0D103C&REV_05 which seems to be an Intel USB controller.  Unfortunately, on the support site here, none of the drivers we've downloaded will correct/update the issue, nor will the driver updater from Intel.  Any ideas?

I'm running a Windows 7 home premium x64 os,
on a HP pavilion dv6-6150ej LX243EA.
This is the original os that came with the computer.
Full spec. can be seen in my profile.

As posted in the title: this laptop is brand new. Just got it about two weeks ago.

I'm getting BSOD every day or two.

Steps taken so far:

1) I've updated Windows to the latest available updates (including the sp1 update).
2) I've updated my graphic driver to the latest driver available in the HP site.
3) I've installed Windows debugging tools in order to try and analyze the minidump files.
4) I've activated Windows Verifier, and set it to monitor ALL drivers. (until Windows crushed with a BSOD). Now if I try to activate the Verifier again, Windows will not load so I had to disable it altogether.
5) I've updated my bios to the latest version available in the HP site.
6) I've run memtest86+ (1 pass) with no errors.

That's all so far.
Attached here is the zip file that this forum requires: Attachment 184052

Also, here is a snapshot of data from the freeware SIW which is a system information tool:

This worries me, because it seems to me that the memory installed is not supported by this motherboard.
If this is true, how can this happen in a standard HP model?


Any help will be appreciated, as I don't want to send this computer back to where I bought it, to be fixed or replaced. I need it here, both for my studies and for work (which I do from home on this ... Read more

Good evening all. We just replaced my wife's failing Apple iMac with an HP Pavilion Slimline computer. We took it out of the box today and set it up around 5 P.M. Shortly after setup, 5 crashes occurred by 10:30 P.M. Posted below is information from the crash log as well as the dump file. If someone can offer me feedback as to what the issue truly is, that would be great (based on debug, I'm fairly certain it's a hardware problem). I'll also attach the .dmp file for those of you more computer savvy than myself.

Just purchased my new Pavilion dv7, and when I run the You Cam software, it tells me my HP TrueVision HD webcam is not detected. I have tried at this for several days now, at one point when I was trying to fiddle with the You Cam settings, the webcam light turned on for aprox. 2 seconds and then went dead again, since then it won't even let me into the YouCam settings.Right now I'm becoming more and more convinced that this is due to my laptop being assembled outside the US.

A:Brand new Pavilion dv7, HP TrueVision HD webcam not detected

Hi Guys, I had the same problem with a HP Pavilion dv7-6e22b. I read about a short cable on the inside of the screen.I found the following post about how the screen is connected. this was an older model but i was curious about how to remove the lid of the machine. it contains 2 screws (which I didn't have to unscrew to acces the camera) just be causious not to break the bevel. http://www.insidemylaptop.com/remove-lcd-screen-inverter-board-hp-pavilion-dv7-notebook/ this is a older model in the new model the webcam connector is located directy under the webcam lens itself.I pressed te connector lightly. And all ofa sudden I hear a USB connecting sound. After that my device manager showed a connected "image device" and the software worked directly. I hop this will solve your problems to. I must say reading all the posts and not finding a solution in driver or software and after seeing the connector I think it's a poor deisgn effort using such short cables and tiny connectors. good luck to all !

I am a former tech-specialist A++ certified and the whole 9 yards - I buy a new laptop every 3-4 years.  HP's used to have a bad rep for the way they were assembled and that they ran hot. Things changed, or so I thought. My ASUS screen died recently and I had to buy something fast.  Was looking for the fasted computer w/the biggest hard-drive for under 600 dollars. Got this computer- did NOT want a tablet w/ a keyboard, swiping creates a dirty screen and I do a lot of work w/photos.  This machine constantly freezes and says - even though it has 300 gigs free - that it is using 100% of the hard drive - I've uninstalled a lot of the crap that comes with it, and even changed to a lesser version of my own antivirus to try to give it more energy. This computer is a piece of crap. I am about to launch a review-a-thon and post reviews whereever I can warning people NOT TO BUY. Oh and I checked with the place I bought it.... four weeks later and they are no longer selling it.  READ REVIEWS BEFORE BUYING!  Don't rely on specs. rely on users who have come before you!

A:BRAND NEW AND FREEZES!! HP Pavilion 15-n211dx Notebook PC

Hello jjoakim,Welcome to the HP Forums!I'm sorry to hear about the frustrating experience. Luckily, with your notebook being so new, it is probably still covered under warranty. If there are hardware issues, your manufacturer's warranty should cover any required servicing.The specs show that you should have received a 750GB hard drive. Can you confirm this? I have included the document 'How To Access Disk Management in Windows 8 & 8.1'. As the drive is most likely partitioned, you will want to use Disk Management to assess the full size.Do you get the error message regarding the hard drive is completely full, while you are working with your photos? The reason that I do ask, is it does sound like an out of control swap file could cause this error.If there is a problem with the hard drive, use this method 'Testing a Hard Disk from the BIOS' to test your hard drive. If for some reason it does come back with a failure, please let me know the exact failure code.I have also included a few standard troubleshooting documents for you to go through, to ensure all the basics have been done.'Computer Locks Up or Freezes in Windows 8''Improving System Performance without Adding Memory (Windows 8)''Windows 8 keeps slows down to 100% disk usage and hangs.'.Looking forward to working with you.

Hello all, I've a problem with my new HP Pavilion 15-bj000nh notebook, purchased few days ago.The wi-fi connection is too weak, if I keep the PC one meter far from router I get only 3-4 bars of 5 in the connection properties and if I go just 10 meters and a pair of rooms far I get 1-2 bars of 5 and frequent disconnections. Also the speed degrades I see, and close to the router too is not at maximum.Otherwise, my old HP 6735s notebook with Windows 7, had never problems in the same position (10 m) and keep 3-4 bars without disconnections. I verified the strength of wi-fi router with cell phone too (no problem), I already tried all the solutions suggested by the HP support assistant on PC and on the HP support site too, but without any results... I upgreaded the software of the Broadcom card (802.11n). IT helped a bit, but even with the newest software, my laptop has the connectivity problems. I cannot believe that a new NB can have a so weak connection... I have no other ideas different from an HW fault...Thanks for your help.

A:Very weak wifi on brand new Pavilion 15 bj000nh

No wireless card will work well with only a single antenna, and a dual band (2.4 and 5 ghz) will not work at all on one antenna... An antenna lead can be added but it takes almost complete disassembly. I doubt the Service Center would do it. I wish there were something I could tell you. A usb wireless dongle is actually your best option. 15 bucks on amazon.com and you will have good reception at the cost of losing access to one usb port.

I unboxed a new HP Pavilion x360 today and it refuses to connect to either of my wifi networks. It can see the SSIDs of the networks (both 2.4 and 5 GHz) in the wifi network list, but the laptop fails to connect to any of them. I have two wireless networks (both running on Netgear equipment), both of which have been working without a problem for several years. Each network has multiple laptops and phones connected at any given time. The main wifi unit is acting as a DHCP server for the network, and the second wifi unit is simply there to extend range, so most of its features are turned off and it's just running in Wireless AP mode. Both wifi points are using WPA2-PSK [AES] for their pass phrase. To rule out any authentication issues, I tried turning off access control and set the networks to 'open' (no password), but still no luck connecting. Meanwhile, I can sucessfully connect to both networks with my phone and various other laptops (eg an older HP Pavilion and a Microsoft Surface Pro 2) Every connection attempt gives the message "Verifying and connecting ...." and after 30 seconds or so, it says "Cannot connect to this network" I even tried re-enabling WPS so I could use the "push button to connect" feature on the wifi station. As soon as I pushed the button, the laptop recognised the WPS connection attempt, but after a few seconds it failed, and gave a message saying WPS had failed and I would have to manually type in the pass phrase. I'm pre...

My HP Pavilion laptop is not completely frozen. My touchpad works, as do some of the function keys like mute and light/darken screen, plus the up arrow so I can see the background desktop (lock screen?) with pretty picture, time, date and battery status.

The problem is the "Sign in" and the power/restart/shut down/hibernate, etc option thing are "darkened," you know that thing the computer does when things are not available, when features/menu items are not current options.

It's like my laptop is stuck in shut down, but won't actually shut down or restart. And as a computer is shutting down you lose features and can't do much if anything with it. This has happened a couple times before during updates. Both times I unplugged it, waited for the power to drain, plugged it back in and it started as normal no problem.
No such luck this time.

I have heard of similar problems in support forums, but most of that was upgrading from 8 to 10 so I doubt they can help me.

I recently received a brand-new HP Pavilion 10-e010nr laptop for Christmas. I went through the setup process and it went smoothly. I quickly noticed that the computer was slow, even before installing anything, but thought nothing of it at first, until a day or two later; then it got annoying. I did a bit of research and saw that if you selected "Express setup" you might have a slow laptop in your hands whereas "Custom setup" would allow you to disable unneeded background process and have a faster, well-running PC. I have also noticed an almost-constant high CPU usage and certain IE add-on blockage due to the add-ons "not being compatible w/ IE's enhanced security features." I have never experienced this before and I'm very confused on what to do.
Some friends of mine suggest a fresh install of Windows, while others say they aren't sure if a fresh install will work, some say to return the PC, and others just have no clue on what's happening.

Any future help is appreciated!

Well, since it is new, I would suggest reinstalling and do the custom setup as you mentioned. Being new there would be no data issues unless of course you have copied data from another computer already. Or, you can start cleaning the "HP Crapware" from the computer by uninstalling everything that you don't need. OR, take it back since it is new and try another one. Anyway, my 2 cents.

Hi everyone.

Yesterday, I purchased a brand new HP Pavilion Sleek laptop. This morning, I turned it on for the first time, set it up, and synchronized my accounts as i was prompted. It was OK till then. I then opened up Internet explorer, went to Google chrome, and saw an option there to "add google to the desktop". upon clicking it, I found that chrome was in fact compatible with windows 8 and could be installed at once. So i installed it. Now, i started up chrome, and barely typed in my first search string before the computer BSOD-ed. It gave the following error:
DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
So, I went and looked that up, quite worried since the computer is brand new and was only operating for an hour before the error. No other apps or programs had been installed. No external drive of any sort had been connected. The device was not connected to a homegroup. So i searched and found a diagnostic program that yielded the following results when i scanned the minidump file.

I already tried contacting technical support, but I didn't get much help there, so maybe someone here can help. I have a brand new HP Pavilion g7-2270us laptop, and it makes an annoying click sound inside of it.  On average, I would say it makes this sound every 20 -30 seconds, but some times it does it more often or more spaced out.  It's just one click at a time, but it's irritating nonetheless.  I can't tell where it's coming from (sounds like the left side possibly), but I know it's not coming from the speakers and it's not from the disc drive (that makes a different sound). This is the second laptop of this model that I've had because the first one made this same noise.  I thought that returning it and getting a replacement would solve the problem, but this laptop is doing the same thing. Any ideas what this could be and what I could do to fix it?  Or is this a normal sound that I just need to get used to?

Hello !

I recently bought (about a week back) brand new HP Pavilion DV6-6159TX. But, the problem I am having is BSOD.

if this is the first time you have seen this stop error screen, restart your pc. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:
Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask ur hardware or software manufacturer for any windows updates u myt need.

Dream Machine, bad brand? good brand?

What is your Dream Machine? I mean spec... but realistic example not a time machine and what component brand you have bad experience with and what brand you very worship?

heres my Dream Spec:
- AMD Athlon64 FX-74 quad-core
- dual 300gb internal hdd, 15,000rpm, 16mb cache
- Blue Ray burner
- 8gig Buffalo Firestix rams
- dual 2900XT 1gig version in crossfire mode
- E-Mu 1616M 16 channels sound card
- Physx card
- Killer Nic card

- gigantic fan that cover each side of the case
- red lighting fancy neon colors
- every components all red color like ram, video card, mobo etc....

I chose amd processor cause so far I have no problem with amd cpu. I have bad experience with intel cpu's..... got celeron 466mhz and it auto reboot often and sometimes wont boot. got pentium3 1.10ghz on laptop and it is out of order for less than 3 years of purchase. got pentium4 3.0ghz 630 and going to folder full of pictures seems slower than my athlon64 3200+ winchester.

chose dual 300gb instead of one piece 1tb hdd is cause as i study theres no 1tb that has 15,000rpm so ill go with dual 300gb 15,000rpm, 16mb cache instead.

chose blu ray over hd dvd is... just felt like it.

chose buffalo firestix ram is ca... Read more

I just unpacked my custom build and got it turned on.. went to try and get the internet working, and for the life of me.. i can't figure it out.
I don't even have a little wireless bar down in the right hand corner. when i try to connect to a network in network and sharing center, it wants me to plug in an ethernet cable. But i want wireless.. Also in the side panel of Network and sharing center, i don't even have the option for wireless.. i have Change adapter settings, and Change advanced sharing settings.

I try to set up a new connection or network and Connect to the internet, the only way it asks me to connect is by broadband(PPPoE). If i try set up a new network it asks me to choose the wireless router or access point i want to configure, might take up to 90 seconds for networks to appear.. but nothing pops up.
Anyone have any ideas?

A:Brand new computer, Brand new windows 7.. no wireless?

In Device Manager, Network Adapters, is your wireless shown?

If yes, is the driver installed? If no, is it enabled in BIOS?

Hello,

I just purchased a microsoft zune mp4 player (brown 30gb). I have loaded all my music (that's compatible) and my video files, and a few pictures. The 2nd day I was on a road trip and it ran out of battery that night, and I left it alone I had no computer access to charge it. The next morning I open the zune software to charge it (today), and I wanted to load a song onto it and it said error, no more space. How is this possible if I had 21 gigs left the last night and i only have 1200 songs, 10 pics, and 2-3 movies, 10 music videos. I looked online and also other people had the same problem, but it didn't show how to solve it. And the microsoft website just said the inbox should've been enlarged, and that didn't make any sense but I did it anyway, no results. I just spent 200 bucks on something I was pretty hyped about, now look where it put me, microsoft always lets me down from the x64OS, to MFSX, and to this.

Does anybody know what to do?

I have a Dell laptop. When comparing as new products and not taking into account that Dell wont warranty the product if I use a non-Dell battery, is there a big difference between brand name batteries and so-called generic replacement batteries? I mean, do the generic batteries last just as long as the genuine Dell batteries?

I just built my second computer. I bought all the parts I needed and went to work installing them in my new tower.

My specs are in my profile!

Problem is I am getting all these pixels on my screen. I don't know what it is but it only started after a day on my new machine. I did a bunch of updates and installed the driver that came with the Card but It is really bugging me that this brand new machine is messed up! I thought it was a temperature issue but its running at 37 C so its not the temp of the Card! What else could it be? I will install the newest driver and see if that changes anything and will post back with my results!

I have a Genuine Microsoft DVD for Windows 10. When I put the Bios in UEFI boot mode It does not boot from the DVD or if i use a USB bootable stick formatted using APT format. When I hit esc on boot and select the boot devices to boot from nothing is shown.  If  I let it just try to boot it give me a message that no bootable image on hard disk. It is a new hard.  When I put it in legacy support mode it will boot either the USB or the internal DVD, but I want to use UEFI and the new APT format for security. What device can you buy so this laptop  will boot something that is portable media on this bios ? It came with this format on the original hard drive with windows 7. Thanks,Buford HP Pavilion DV4-5113cl with INSYDE F39 bios from latest update

..........hello,

a simple question......will a HP Pavilion 15-n034sa motherboard fit into a HP Pavilion 15-n083sa ?

help me obi-wan youre my only hope!!

 

A:will a HP Pavilion 15-n034sa motherboard fit into a HP Pavilion 15-n083sa ?

Actually that's a hard question, generally its not possible to install another motherboard, sometimes it is. In this case one is an AMD platform and the other is an Intel platform, there could be tons of differences in mounting holes, physical design, clearance, connectors, heat dissipation requirements, cooling systems, etc. Laptops are not like desktops that use more standardized designs.

My HP Pavilion 500-205t was destroyed by a lightning strike. The HD is o.k. I have purchased an HP Pavilion 500-490 because the specs were very close.  I  want to use my 205t HD. Both computers are Core i3-4130, have 1 TB 7200 SATA 6G 3.5 HDs, same OS (Windows 7 Pro 64). My question is:  can I swap them out, or do I need to get an external HD enclosure and copy the 205t to the 490? If I need the external HD enclosure, looks like aluminum would be best, but would like recommendation for one which would hold my HD.

A:which brand should i get of 780 ti?

Didn't you just buy a 7770? And why ask to change the brand if you only just bought one anyway?

Whatever, I'd ask for a Palit reference card. I have a Palit reference 780 and it's brilliant, Palit are a very good card manufacturer and the reference cooling on these cards is fantastic.
