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.

A:Can I upgrade the wireless card to 802.11ac

There is no whitelist. Here is the Service manual: See p. 96 Manual You have the 17 inch model and for the 15 inch AMD models HP actually offered an AC card. This one: Broadcom BCM 4352 WLAN 802.11 AC+BT4 2x2HMC for HP Pavilion 15 AMD computer models available for Windows 8.1 and Windows 7 724935-005 This is an equivalent aftermarket card sold through amazon.com: http://www.amazon.com/AzureWave-Broadcom-BCM94352HMB-802-11-867Mbps/dp/B00IFYEYXC/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1453758370&sr=8-4&keywords=Broadcom+802.11ac That card would work for you but, I do have to warn that installation is no easy matter. It requires extensive disassembly and will jeopardize the warranty. You should not try to install an Intel card as they are known not to play nice with AMD computers. The Broadcom will be your best bet.  If you have questions let us know.  If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

Hi there

This USB Wifi adapter seems to be a MEGA performer --Lovely finally to be able to THINK of getting rid of LAN cables all over the place.

I've no probs with decent HD Movie streaming from a SERVER with one of these (I unplugged the LAN and inserted the USB Wifi adapter into a USB3 slot --note this needs genuine USB3 to work at proper speed). My Home router can deliver 802.11ac so no probs there.

Brilliant piece of kit and NO MORE CABLES !!!!!!. Wifi will soon be able to deliver comparable speeds to LAN especially for HOME networks. !!!

Here's the UK Link but is available in US and Europe. In any case it's delivered (in my case) by Amazon S.A.R.L (Luxembourg) so no tax !!!. even though I ordered from UK web site --they will ship outside UK tax free.

Hi there

trying to increase the Wifi speed -- have a decent Wifi adapter with 802.11ac capability - connected to USB 3 port. Speed should be up to 500 - 600 Mbps instead of the 133 Mbps it shows. I KNOW the cable speed via LAN is really fast - so is the built in Wifi router that the cable company have given me not up to the job for Wifi -- I really would like to get rid of loads of LAN cable around the place. That's why I don't like these boxes the ISP issues you with - there's minimal tinkering you can do with them - but you have to use their cable box as a typical Router connects via the phone -- that phone connection system has long since disappeared where I am.

Seems that the cable boxes you get hobbled with by the ISP company - while OK for LAN seem to not be built for the fastest Wifi Protocol.

Anyway round this --- any call to the cable company seems to involve my worst nightmare -- long waits on the phone to some Indian call centre where the staff at the other end haven't a clue what I'm talking about -- all they seem to mouth over and over again - Is your Internet working --YES IT IS but that's not the problem. Grrrhhhhhhh!!!!!!!

Hi all, I bought a used Z510 off Ebay a couple of days ago as a small upgrade from my Z500. I have a modded whitelist removed BIOS on the Z500 and use an Intel 7260ac WLAN card. Now just learnt that modded BIOS's cannot be flashed on the Z510 without hardware programming. I'm so annoyed at Lenovo for this selfish restriction and I'd seriously consider ever buying their products again. My question is: are there any 802.11ac WLAN cards that will work on this model? I've looked in the Hardware Maintenance Manual and all I can see are BGN cards, not AC. I've seen a Broadcom AC card mentioned in a thread but the model number was not given. PS: Does anyone know if the screen brightness issue was solved if one uses a FHD screen on a Z500? I know the Intel HD4000 drivers caused the issue but this thread seems to suggest that using a FHD screen reproduces the problem.Thanks a lot!Andrew

A:Oh dear W10 Wifi -- please STOP telling BIG FIBS !!!! (802.11ac)

Yeah, I get this too. Quite often I get no connection over WiFi, despite WiFi working fine on all other devices.

Back in November I posted HERE about uninstalling the WiFi Network Adapter and then letting Windows re-install it, however that only temporarily solved the problem and unfortunately the problem came back again. It's solely a Windows 10 WiFi problem as numerous other devices have no problem, but I don't know how to fix it. I can only assume it's some sort of power saving thing that isn't working properly.

EDIT: Here you go. I can literally make it happen on demand. And yet I'm posting this from another computer on the exact same network that apparently has 'No Internet'.

A:Upgrade possible to Intel AC 7260 802.11ac Wi-Fi ? HP Eliteb...

No AC adapters will work. Only the wifi cards that are on the whitelist which is the ones in the Manual and only the HP Part No. versions of those.  The Intel cards are limited to HP Part No. versions contrary to the Wicki guy's statements. There are a couple 5ghz options, just not 802.11ac cards. Occasionally cards that are not in the manual will somehow work and I know there is a 7260N which a lot of people confuse for the 7260ac card. I know the 7260AC will NOT work as we have had prior posts here from people that tried it but it would not shock me if a 7260N card would work. Can't promise, though. This is largely a guessing game since the actual whitelist itself has never been made public.

Just got HP Pavilion a6827c-b desktop for my birthday and so far its great.The only thing that bothers me is the integrated graphic card,its really not so good for games.So i want to upgrade,i have a budget of 125$ to get a new graphic card.I would like to get some decent graphic card that will allow me to play most of the games that are currently out or will be out soon.I do not care what settings those games are gonna be on,as long as they work smooth i will be fine.I repeat once again,I do not care about resolution or things like that as long as i can play those games with a good fps rate i will be more than satisfied....

These are the specs of the pc....

Hi All, I recently purchased a GTX1060 GPU card from nVidia on-line in an attempt to upgrade the capabilties of my 4 year old machine (from an MSI GeForce GT640) so that I'd be able to play Fallout 4 and Witcher 3 (both of which bring my poor old GT640 to its knees -- even on the lowest resolution settings).  It fits in the case and powers up (yes, I did plug in the 6-pin connector from the PSU), and the 600W PSU is adequate for the task, but I'm starting to think that I probably have a Motherboard compatibility issue. When I install the card and turn on the PC, it hangs at the setup splash screen (a common problem from what I've already read on these forums) and goes no further (keyboard and mouse are unresponsive at that point).  I've contacted nVidia support, and they've suggested a couple of BIOS changes (Disable Secure Boot, Enable Legacy/CSM Mode, and toggling BIOS Selection Mode between UEFI and Legacy modes), but when I access the HP Setup Utility (F10 upon boot-up with GT640 card installed), these options are not available to me. Is there any way for me to access the BIOS settings that nVidia has indicated I should be adjusting? Is this GPU card simply not at all compatible with my Motherboard? System Specs: HP Model Number: B4J28AV#ABA (Pavilion HPE h8-1380t)Motherboard: Pegatron 2ACE(Socket 0); 1.08; Intel Sandy Bridge-E Rev. 07; Intel Southbridge X79 Rev. 05BIOS: AMI 7.15CPU: Intel Core i7 3930K (3.2 GHz)OS: Windows 7 Profes...

A:Video Card Upgrade for Pavilion HPE h8-1380t

Hi, The h8 1380t has a Pegatron, "Pittsburgh" motherboard. You could try to find a later revision of this system board. I also have an Envy 810-150se with a "Pittsburgh2" system board that has UEFI. I am running an Nvidia GTX 970 FTW EVGA card with great results. You would have to verify that the revision board would fit in your chassis. Other options are: 1. New Envy shipping with Win 7 Pro, or 2. Falcon Northwest. Swapping in a main stream system board from Asus, or Gigabyte, or Asrock is difficult at best. Your gonna have to change other components such as the processor, heat sink, fan and memory. You will probably have to purchase an OEM version of Win 7 Pro.  It gets pretty expensive when you do the math on all of the changes you will have to make. There is no guarantee you can find a main stream system board having the correct standoffs matching your h8-1380t chassis. Avoid a Skylake processor if you can unless you don't mind jumping through a few additional hoops to install Win 7. Please see this article and go here for the workaround to solve the win 7 installation problem. Jay

Can this laptop be upgraded to have better performance for playing video games? Currently it is very slow and we just purchased at it last week. Slow to get onto our network and even slower when trying to play any video games. We are running of the laptops Lenovo and Mac and are having no issues.

Can we have the full model number to check the specifications? Regardless, there will be no way to upgrade any video hardware it is integral to the motherboard. Likely the processor is, also and perhaps even the memory.

I'm not sure exactly how old my computer is but it runs pretty decent and i can't afford anything else right now. i installed the sims3 and i got an error message saying i need to upgrade my video card to something that supports Pixel 2 Shading. I've been looking on tiger direct for awhile and can't figure out how to know which cards support that or which cards would be compatible with my computer?

Also, while i have the computer open i figure it'd be a good idea to put more ram in there, which i hear is pretty simple. I've never upgraded a computer. i've only been inside a computer to remove hard drives. im just wondering if its going to be too difficult for me to install the video card myself?

the sims 3 system requierments:
* 2.0 GHz P4 processor or equivalent
* 1 GB RAM
* A 128 MB Video Card with support for Pixel Shader 2.0
* The latest version of DirectX 9.0c
* Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2
* At least 6.1 GB of hard drive space with at least 1 GB of
additional space for custom content and saved games

my computer specs: hp pavilion a420n
*2.16 ghz 3000+ AMD Anthlon xp processor
* 512 mb PC2700 DDR SDRAM memory
* VIA/S3G UniChrome IGP video card in PCI bus 1
* XP service pack 3
*160GB hard drive with 53GB free space

Thanks for reading! hope u can help
 

A:Trying to upgrade video card on a HP Pavilion a420n

if you have the version with the Asus motherboard A7V5X-LA, you are working with an AGP 4x/8x interface. They are getting scarce, but this is about as good as it gets unless you find one of the 3850's or the Geforce 9600 AGP. this one is SM3.0

I want to install a new graphics card in my old Pavilion. I will add  a new power unit- I prefer nvidia or EVGa etc. generally... does someone know or can someone refer me to a url with this info?  I tried my radeon 5820 and it didn't have any output so I  stuck in a 500w psu and an old gtx 9400 for now, which only works for low usage.

A:Pavilion p6674y Graphics card upgrade

@Maggietron?, welcome to the forum. Newer video cards require UEFI in the motherboard instead of a standard/Legacy BIOS.  HP didn't begin using UEFI until mid-October, 2012.  The motherboard can't be upgraded to UEFI.  The last video cards that didn't require UEFI were the GTX 660/670's. I suggest contacting EVGA's Tech Support (1-888-881-3842) for help with choosing the best card for your system.  They are the experts on their products.   Also, they can tell you the power requirements of the card that they recommend. Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

A:HP Pavilion 15-p210TX - Graphic Card Upgrade

Hi: There is no removable/replaceable graphics 'card' in your notebook like what can be done in a desktop PC. The only way to upgrade the graphics would be to replace the entire motherboard with one listed in the service manual for your specific model PC that may have better graphics. This would be a costly and labor intensive project.

We are experiencing wifi interference between our probook and Netgear AC791 Jet Pack in some RV parks where we stay. The jetpack can use 5 ghz as can all our other devices, our probook can't. The jetpack can transmit on both, but is much slower on dual band than on either 2.4 or 5 ghz. so, how much effort and is it possible to upgrade the wifi in our probook to 5 ghz? Thanks for any direction you can provide.

A:Is it possible to upgrade my wifi card

GrumpyOldTimer Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums! Sorry, but with laptops, the WiFi is integrated into the system board with a chipset. This is not a customer-replaceable part.
