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 am wishing to upgrade the hard drive in my new Envy AIO since it came with only a 5400rpm drive to a hybrid 7200rpm. I have read from previous posts that it is difficult due to the location of the drive sitting behind the curved monitor and to access it you have to remove it. I also have watched a video on someone doing this but they didn't mention how they were able to over come the strong adhesive that attaches the bevel to the monitor without breaking the screen. Is there a documented way to remove the bevel without force? This seems to be a poor engineering design for hard drive replacement or upgrades as well as memory grades where you have to go a step furhter and remove the motherboard since the RAm is located on the back side with no access. I am a computer engineer and very hardware savy and am very concerned about opening up the system to upgrade the hard drive. Any suggestions for removing the bevel safely would be greatly appreciated.

Does HP have any remote control app which canbe used to control volume etc.. for HP Pavilion 27-a010   

A:HP Pavilion 27-a010

If you are talking about using your phone as a remote control, then there are several apps for Android or Apple products that allow you to do this. Just search the app stores for PC and remote... you'll need to install the app on your phone and software on your PC from the app manufacturer's web site. I think Google has a remote desktop app if youhave android.

Ok, I had purchased this computer for a job and was ok for a while now they are saying I need to upgrade the processor. Thats fine no problem there till I started doing research and found out the I can't. I only had this computer for approx 6 months I feel I was not given all info on the system when I bought it. I believed and was told it was new however after digging around the system more it is not. My question is can this system be upgraded with a new motherboard and cpu. This is the only way I can keep my job. I can't afford a new computer. I know the processor can not that is why I am asking about the motherboard in order to do the upgrade. This is the first time I ever came across this situation.

A:upgrade on slimline hp 260-a010

With the processor being non-upgradeable, a new motherboard that fits in the case would not be that difficult.  It isMini ITXDimensions: 17.0x17.0 cm (6.7x6.7 in)Just start shopping for that size motherboard that can use the Memory you have in that unit.  Then also pick an appropriate CPU.  It does not need to be in compliance as a HP replacement as the Windows will not transfer either.  Which means a new Windows install or Linux

Hoping I can get some help with this... I have an HP Envy H8 that I bought two years ago (March 3 2012 to be exact). I use the PC constantly, and it's on 24/7 as I use it as a media server for the house and stream music to every room, have PLEX installed to watch movies, etc. So the PC is never off for more than a few minutes when I reboot it every 6-8 weeks or so.
 
Today, when I came home, I noticed that the PC had frozen and wouldn't wake up. When I tried to boot it, I get the HP logo screen and the swirling dots going around at the bottom once or twice, and then the dots freeze and the PC stops booting and won't do anything else. I've rebooted it several times, the PC has actually tried to fix errors itself (it says "Preparing Automatic Repair") but can't seem to do anything, it just kicks me back to a menu that gives me several options including to continue to boot into Windows 8, but nothing works.
 
Anyone can help me fix this? Or is it just dead? I'm hoping it's not just dead, as I've not backed up the HD in a while and will lose a lot of photos and data and things....
 
*fingers crossed*

Hi: I agree with you. I took a look at the motherboard illustration, and I do not see any kind of expansion slots available for add on graphics, or any other PCIe card. The only upgrades that can be done appear to be to increase the memory if you don't already have 2 x 8 GB installed.

Periodically and without any warning my new hp envy x360 running windows 10 on an intel i5 dual core processor with 12 GB RAM I bought last August so it came preinstalled with windows 10 will freeze on me and nothing except hitting the power button and restarting it fix the problem. I've been on chat and twitter support for what seems weeks now to get this fixed and nothing seems to be working, I've updated windows, updated the bios, all the drivers, done hardware checks and none of this has solved the problem. HP support now suggests that reset my laptop to the factory settings but before I do that and all the hassles of reinstalling my data (just backed it all up) I want to make sure this will once and for all solve the problem.  I've done some research and this seems to be a common problem on windows 10 laptops, that there may a way to fix this by adjusting something the BIOS or in the windows power settings. I've also been told to just go back to an earlier version of windows. Its been driving me nuts for months and whats worse is if this is a "common problem" why doesn't tech support seem to know about it?

Freezes right at bootup, sometimes in BIOS, sometimes I get as far as windows logon screen before it freezes again.  And if I leave it off long enough, I would be able to log into windows before it freezing again.  All these cases would require a hard reboot.  Definitely some kind of hardware issue.  I'm out of warranty, no surprise. Rant:  For those reading, including HP reps, I'd have to say very politely that HP is horrible, just horrible.  Customer service is great though, nice people I've enjoyed talking with, but still, it doesn't make up for the horrible product, wasted time, and frustration.  I personally don't buy HP, mostly Apple (a bit more $$ but worth it), but still cannot sway family members of older generations to do so (but they're slowly seeing the light).  They are still fixated on the HP golden days of reliability, which was way in the past.  Perhaps with this latest purchase, I can make a stronger case for HP's downward trend to the old folks.  But for now, I have a blank screen staring at me. Cheers.

A:HP ENVY 17t-k000 freezes on bootup (and a little ranting :)

And I have some Apple horror stories I can tell you but let's not. Do you want to try to fix the HP? Or are we just going to throw in the towel? Frankly sounds to me like maybe bad memory or a bad hard drive, either of which could be easily remedied. To replace it with a like MacBook Pro might cost $2500. True, it is a more robust product but HP also makes professional laptops in that price range that I will stack up against Apple notebooks any day.

The right hinge on my Envy 17 Touch Screen has failed, causing the case to become separated and the lid to be nearly impossible to close. This is the second Envy 17 to fail in this way. About a year ago my husband's broke and HP spent nearly three months attempting to repair it before finally just shipping him a new one. This appears to be a flaw in the construction of the hinge assembly, and we have noticed that the newer models, such as my husband's replacement, have a much improved design in comparison. We spent about $1,300 on this computer (it has an i7 Core and 16 GB of RAM) and hoped it would hold up for a while. The laptop was great, but now it has become difficult to use without fear of causing further damage. Thank you for any suggestions.

Switched to Firefox, and immediate improvement - it now freezes randomly once every 2 days or so - often occurs when zonealarm receive green lights are on, and sometimes when many apps are open at once.

So one of my friends is running Vista 64-bit with her DXdiag attached.

I also have attached her Windows 7 (today, a more recent Dxdiag).

Her computer was fine about two months ago and shes had it for 13 months. Then these "freezes/lockups" started randomly throughout the day. She'll be gaming or just browsing the internet with a few AIM/MSN windows opened, random programs will lock up and freeze while others stay perfectly functional. Windows seldom freezes along with the programs, but it does happen occasionally where she can't use task manager and the windows button is forced to freeze for about 2-10minutes. She hasn't had freezes above 13ish minutes because she manually shuts down her computer about that time.

Sometimes when she freezes, she gets past bios and while windows was loading it sent her to a black screen that didn't load anything. She had to keep restarting a couple of times and waiting 10ish minutes and eventually her windows loaded up. She says this doesn't usually happen either.

She wiped about a month ago and it didn't really do anything. At all. She did a clean format/reinstall of windows and these freezes still happen with the same occurrence rate/severity/duration.

I also have the event viewer logs of her system, and programs. They were taken right after the freezes. Not sure if these help, they seem like a bunch of crap to me, but just incase? I can't tell anything for certain from it but it does say there are some errors.

It won't hurt to run MemTest again - but I wouldn't put a priority on it.

A:Vista freezes after startup, safe mode freezes but mouse still works

Sounds like the hard drive. It may be corrupt. Download Ubuntu and save your stuff, first. If you cannot, it is most likely hardware or hard drive, which is hardware.

I am running windows XP home edition SP 2, accessing internet via Road Runner. I upgraded Internet Explorer. It froze so I killed it and restarted again. It finished properly the second time, or so it seemed.

IE7 ran OK the first time. The 2ns time it froze on a blank window. No toolbars, no status bar, no nothing, just the frame and blank inside.

Other symptoms: Internet Options opens up OK from the control panel, and every tab seems OK, but when I go connections, LAN settings, the button shows depressed, and the thing freezes.

I can access the WWW without a problem via Firefox. Outlook sends and receives email without a hitch. But any program that checks internet options to see about proxy settings or similar, freezes. Example Intellicast and the Zinio reader. Example the setup program for Max Registry Cleaner and Registry Mechanic.

I ran a virus scan with AVG. The machine was clean. I cleaned up the registry with RegistryFix. There were a lot of lose ends, now it is clean. I ran AVG Anti Spyware. It has a residue of 45 tracking cookies, nothing else. I uninstalled Intellicast and the Zinio reader. Nothing made a difference.

Here is the log from Hijack This. I will be most thankful for your help in figuring out this one.

A:Internet Explorer Freezes When Started & Firefox Freezes/crashes On Some Websites

Hello and welcome to BleepingComputer. One or more of the identified infections is a backdoor trojan. You have a very severely infected system -- likely because of the lack of antivirus & firewall software.This allows hackers to remotely control your computer, steal critical system information and download and execute files.I would counsel you to disconnect this PC from the Internet immediately. If you do any banking or other financial transactions on the PC or if it should contain any other sensitive information, please get to a known clean computer and change all passwords where applicable, and it would be wise to contact those same financial institutions to apprise them of your situation.Though the trojan has been identified and can be killed, because of it's backdoor functionality, your PC is very likely compromised and there is no way to be sure your computer can ever again be trusted. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of trojan, the best course of action would be a reformat and reinstall of the OS. Please read these for more information:How Do I Handle Possible Identify Theft, Internet Fraud and CC Fraud?When Should I Format, How Should I ReinstallWe can clean this machine but I cannot guarantee it will be 100% secure afterwards. Let me know what you decide to do.
