Q: after windows 8 updates, trackpad on stream 11 notebook is n...

I've just completed a very frustrating restore of my son's stream 11 notebook. This started after several hours of fighing with Windows update and the tiny SSD. I managed to get it updated, but the trackpad stopped working. This is not a hardware problem since booting into the recovery system, the trackpad worked fine. I tried to free additional space, but eventually gave up, opting to reimage it. I backed up the user data and restored it using the recovery image. This went fine. (I was frustrated, though, to learn that the Office 365 install, which had also been working just fine was no longer available and I could no longer active to reinstall it.) So, at this point, I had a functional notebook. I could not, though, get Windows update to complete. It ran for over 24hours with no indication of any progress. I downloaded the Windows 8 Standalone update utiltity. This managed to kick-start the update process. There were 155 updates that loaded. These seemed to complete with no problems. Another run of the normal Windows Update process (via Control Panel) found more. I kept at this a couple of more runs. The last time, though, the trackpad stopped working. I could not figure out which of the updates caused the problem. None of these were for the Syaptics driver. I proceeded to try and reinstall the driver, using the package from HP's site. This didn't help. I tried Windows Restore. Only 1 Restore Point was available. This seems to have re-enabled the trackpad, but at the expense of eliminating all the updates that had been applied! My frustration with this notebook is at an extreme.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

A:hp stream notebook 11 windows 10 space help

shannel First of all, you're confusing memory with disk space.  The Win10 Upgrade typically needs 20GB of disk space, and as your laptop most likely has only a 32GB drive, it has nowhere near enough space to do the upgrade. Second, the 2GB you mention is system memory, which is totally unrelated to disk space. Personally I would advise strongly AGAINST doing the Win10 Upgrade, as it is a LOT of work and even when that's done, folks have complained about later, not being able to apply the Cumulative Updates, and there is a BIG one coming out the beginning of August! Here is a link from somone with a similar model who did perform the upgrade: How I was able to install Windows 10 on HP Stream 13 (32GB S... - HP Support Forum - 5179626

I bought an HP stream notebook for Christmas last year with Windows 10 , and I got a virus on it a few weeks ago and tried to reset it and I say it down for like 2 hrs and it was still frozen at 1% so I turned it off. When I turned it back on there would be a line at the top and then the HP welcome sign would show and then it would go black then turn off ( the power light was still on) and then continue to restart over and over. I tried pressing f11 to go and reset it but every time it says "there was an error resetting your pc" at about 44% and the diagnostic test found nothing. PLZ HELP

So having had my stream 14 for a few months now it was in need of a clean up and so I decided to factory reset it and discovered a serious issue regarding lost drive space caused by windows updates. In factory shipped condition, the system uses some sort of system that accesses the recovery partition to use the data on the WIM I believe, either way whatever it is doing is quite clever and leaves the system with a farly impressive 19.3GB of free space left over, however this situation rapidly degrades once windows starts to update itself.  Allowing Windows 8.1 X64 to update to the last available 'important' update reduces the available free space down to 10.8GB, that's a massive (when taken in context of how much is available) 8.5GB of space gone just by windows performing what are supposed to be important updates, not sure how much worse it will get with time either as it appears that any updated files are expanded to fill the available space rather than stored in the WIM image. Do HP consider it uneccesary to update windows or are they going to take action to somehow rectify the situation by maybe providing an updated system image that will allow a more recent updated version of windows to be used in the same manner the original installation was? Or is there something I can do to perform this function? Any ideas?

A:hp stream running out of space due to windows updates.

@Dano314 , Hello and thank you for posting on the HP support forums.  The updates are put out there to resolve issues. If you find you are running out of space. Consider using an external hard drive.  The hard drive on your system is not made for huge file storage and so on.   On the other hand if you find your system is running ok then do updates when you seem to find you are running into issues. Thanks again for posting and have a great day.

I have just encountered this problem also...Bought my daughter a stream for schoolwork and general web browsing, youtube etc, last christmas..Nothing has been installed on it except for eset.  Allowed the win10 free update earlier in the year...Noticed recently the win version is quite out of date, wondered why it hadnt auto updated, to find about 250mb free drive..Its saying it wants to install annivesary update and wants 8gb free.. I have done everything, uninstalled anything not needed, ran disk cleanup, system files clean up, removed previous versions, deleted all browser history, deleted downloaded files, compact mode is on, everything already mentioned in this thread, i've gone thru everything, literally gone thru the entire drive folder by folder deleting individual files, and still only have got it up to around 6.3gb free.... There is no way I can free up any more drive space...What a total lack of foresight by a major company to release a product that is so limited, that you cannot run critical windows system updates after just a few months..

I bought my HP stream notebook off my sister in law about 8 months ago. It was pretty much brand new, had nothing on it, and I needed it for school. I do not download music, movies, or anything like that. I have only used it for social media, school and watching some videos. When I first got it my sister in law had forgotten her password to delete her account as an admin off of it, so I just created another account. However it's having serious issues. Firefox and edge crash constantly, it won't allow me to do a system restore, and because she was the main administrator it blocks me from making some changes. While it's turned on a lot of the icons are not visable, also the low disk space error pops up all the time. I have deleted as much stuff as I can. What is the problem and what can I do?? When I try to do a system restore it says I do not have any previous check points and won't allow me. I have a very good virus protection through my internet provider. It says there is no virus.

A:HP Stream Notebook PC 14 keeps shutting off?

I have resolved my issue. The problem was that the laptop casing near the area of the power button had become a little bit loose. Everytime I moved the laptop it must have activated the power button and turned if off. I had a look on the underside of the laptop, and found a screw underneath one of those rubber stickers in the corners. It turns out that it had loosened itself over time. I screwed it back in, the casing is now more tight, and the problem has stopped occuring.

I attempted to contact HP is regard to the issue that I am experiencing, but cannot as my warranty expired on 6/22/16.  I'm hoping someone e here can provide insight.  When I turned my Stream on this afternoon, it wouldn't boot.  Odd, since it was fully charged last night, so I went ahead and plugged it in.  Upon doing so, I encountered a black screen stating my internal battery was nearly at capacity.  What precisely does that mean?  I am able to use the notebook as long as I keep it plugged in.  Also, while plugged in I receive a message stating that it's connected to a power source and the battery is not charging.  The moment I unplug it, it shuts down. I'm more than upset in regard to this new and unwanted development.  The notebook is only 15 months old.  Is there any way to salvage it or am I looking at buying a new one?  I've always used HP desktops,laptops, and notebooks; now I will never purchase one again. Has anyone else experienced this issue?

Hi,  Are you able to get past BIOS/UEFI screen? After that to Windows setup screen? Please test your hard drive and memory (extensive testing) by tapping F2 key as soon as you power on laptop from System Diagnostics. Let it finish. If all tests passed proceed.It is a very economical notebook. Therefore manufacturer has cut down many standards like hard drive storage capacity, RAM, processor to name few. This makes Windows installation tough especially Recovery process as it uses more resources.I would suggest you to clean install Windows using Microsoft windows media creation tool by creating bootable installation USB.Get the exact version of Windows that came pre installed with this notebook -->Windows 8/8.1: Option 1https://www.eightforums.com/tutorials/18309-windows-8-windows-8-1-iso-download-create.htmlWindows 10: Option 1https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/2376-usb-flash-drive-create-install-windows-10-a.htmlDownload, save additional drivers from your HP support page.RegardsVisruth

Hi Lori,  I use SanDisc Memory card for both my Laptop and Camera..   Its really good..  Compact And excellent performance..  I would suggest u to by a 64GB or 128GB Memory card for storage..  But 128gb sd cards are more than 2 or 3 times expensive than the 64gb memory cards..  64gb would cost u around $30 but 128gb would be costing around $70 or more.. So, wat i would suggest is to buy an 1TB External Hard drive which would cost u around $50...   Western Digital and Seagate are good..  I prefer WD and i own one..So u can do like this - keep a budget of $80 and purchase a 1TB WD Ext HDD and a 64 GB micro SD card..  (Product pricing may vary)..   But remember this - Internal Hard disc or the External HDD, both a very delicate..  Should be handled with atmost care.. You Drop down your HDD once, thats it, its gone.. Dead..    But Memory cards are strong, can handle Drops, bumps and pressures..    And yes, i both HDD and mmc, u can store Media files (Pics, Movies and Songs), Software files (exe files only), games and other documents..   But u can not "install" Softwares or games into mmc ot ext HDD, there r chances that it wont work.. Also mmc are Compact but Ext HDD are not..  So upto u to decide..    Mark this Reply as "Accept as Solution" if it solves your problem.  Click "thumb up" just to say Thanks..Good Luck!! - Raj

My OS is 32 or 64. I don't know how to find that. I have installed 13 apps on my new notebook and the storage is full. I can't download anything. I have read that you can add an sd card for additional storage. How do I do that? I've gotten rid of a few apps and do the disc clean-up daily, but nothing really helps. I am a novice user who searches the internet and I store photos of the grandkids. My apps are news and facebook/messenger. So far this thing doesn't do me much good. Any advice?

A:adding storage to my new stream notebook

On the left side is a card slot.   You put one of these in the card slot. An SD card you can buy at any office or camera store.    To insert a card: Hold the card label-side up, with connectors facing the slot, insert the card into the slot, and then push in on the card until it is firmly seated. To remove a card: Press in on the card it until it pops out Once the card is in the slot it will show up as a device and you need to give it a drive letter, generally D: After that, you can move all the files in your libraries (documents, pictures, etc) and your downloads folder to the SD card. This tells how generally: http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/how-to-increase-storage-space-on-windows-8-1-devices-with-sd-cards/ This says Windows 8 but the process is similar in Windows 10.

By default they want to install in C:\program files. Put a program files folder on the SD card and then you can direct program installs to the SD card where you are given the option. You might even uninstall some of the ones you already have and reinstall them on SD card.  Post back if you need more help. If this is "th... Read more

Hi Im having great trouble with this notebook.... it was working fine but it was begining to be loaded with lots of items that were no longer needed so i decided to complete a hard reset/restore back to factory settings. i followed the instructions and the restore started it got to around 65% and then a message appeared on the screen stating that an error had happened, the only oprion was to continue with the process, so i clicked continue. Now the screen simply rotates between a Hp logo screen and a black screen and nothing else. I have tried several things - upon start up i press esc f11 shows that the "machine needs repairing"?? with an error code 0000225 currently the notebook is completely inopperable...Please help! 

A:Restore problem stream 11 notebook

@Mark-J1 Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums! This error code means one or more of the boot loader files has been corrupted. You will need access to a working PC for this step in order to create the media needed to repair your PC boot loader.Once you have that, please download and create Win10 install media from this link: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-10/media-creation-tool-install?ocid=ms_wol_win10Note that when you go do download and build install media, the tool defaults to matching what is already installed on your PC (as in, Home for Home, 64-bit for 64-bit). While you CAN change these settings, do NOT. If you do, the resulting media will be different and will force you to enter a NEW product code!Boot from the media you created, and follow the directions in this link: http://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/2294-advanced-startup-options-boot-windows-10-a.htmlYou will need to go to the Advanced Options screen and click on Startup Repair. You will probably have to run Startup Repair three times for it to fix all the boot loader problems.When done, your PC should boot OK. If it does not, there is a more serious problem.Good Luck

Trying to rehab a Stream Notebook for my boss so we can use it in the shop.  Hard drive was overloaded and corrupted to the point that creating recovery media from the system by either means (USB stick or separate disk drive) was unsuccessful.  Went to the HP support site for downloads and drivers and NO recovery media option was listed.  Right now, the hard drive is wiped, so only option for recovery is external media.  The unit was originally shipped with Windows 8 and was upgraded to Win10 later.  Anyone have any info on a source for the necessary software or is this thing basically a brick now?  Hoping for a ready solution seeing as the system is only two years old and is in great shape otherwise.  Any info that proves useful would be appreciated.  Thanks!

A:HP Stream 11 Notebook - NEED recovery media!!

Hi: You can order W8.1 recovery media from the link below... http://support.hp.com/us-en/mediaorder/HP-Stream-11-Notebook-PC/7372144/model/7538969/softwareitem/798686-002/step1 I suggest you try reinstalling W10 by making your own installation media. Use the media creation tool. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10 When you get to the part during the installation process where you are asked to enter a product key, select the 'I don't have a product key' option. Then W10 will install and automatically reactivate once you are reconnected to the internet.

The notebook was trying to run an update, a problem occured and everything froze. It would not turn  off so had to let it run out of power so it could be turned back on. Afterwards a message came up to advise not enough space to perform the update with an icon to click to clear available space which I did. It did this then I think tne update failed. After that word will not open, I click on the icon to open  but nothing happens. The product is under warrenty still, I just have no clue what to do. Can anyone help?  Please!

I have a HP Stream Notebook PC 13.  It is a little over 18 months old and I have barely used it.  Yet, it constantly freezes and is painfully slow.  Is there anything I can do to fix this?
