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.)

Im planning to buy a HP Envy 13  to use for school, since this notebook is lightweight and thin and the battery life (from what I've read) is decent. I've noticed that there are 2 HP ENVYs available, both with the same specs, both with the same price ( ENVY 13-d120nd and ENVY 13-d010nd). I wondered what the differences are between them. So I hoped you guys from the forum could help me with this. And if any of you got any suggestions for other HP notebooks in the same priceclass with a good (maybe better) battery life to use for school, feel free to suggest  Thanks in advance!

Hello,
 
My HP notebook is little over one year old, and therefore, out of warranty.  Before the first year was over, I noticed that the left hinge was pulling my laptop apart.  It was a small gap and my schedule was hectic.  Therefore, I did not pay attention to any warranty coverage issues.  However, the laptop came apart more and more until both sides had the same issue where the two halves under the keyboard are separating.  I called HP and was told that since it was out of warranty, they could not do anything.  I asked where I could get it fixed and did not get an adequate answer.  Now, my screen occassionally flickers and I am afraid that the issue will get worse. 
 
I am very angry at HP now, although my last two HP laptops were very reliable.  [content removed]  Today, after a lot of research,  I found the hinge issue being addressed on these forums. 
 
I NEED HELP.  I need a reliable fix!!

I purchased an HP Envy m6 1105-dx and was very pleased. I take very good care of my laptop and always have it in a sleeve. Shortly after the warranty expired my right hinge suddenly broke on its own. I was able to get HP to have the hinge repaired but lost possession of my laptop for two weeks during final exams. A year later the left hinge has now broken and cracked the side and bottom covers. The hinge bulges out, making it difficult and scary to close/open the laptop. The screen literally hangs at a tilt and the hinge pushes up the speaker housing and upper right corner of the keyboard. I took my laptop to the IT department at my law school to ask what they believed was the cause. Without opening or messing with the laptop they agreed that it was most likely due to a design flaw on the hinges since the right hinge (Hinge repaired previously by HP) is also beginning to break. Did we all pay $700+ to suffer with the constant need to deal with broken hinges? This is very unfortunate since HP has always had a reputable name. Now I am stuck with a $700+ laptop with a completely broken left hinge and a previously HP repaired right hinge that is not too far behind from another break. Does anyone know of any recalls or remedies to solve this issue?

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.

I purchased my HP Envy laptop a little over two years ago (6/28/2014), and maybe 6 months into my ownership the right hinge began to be problematic. It wasn't a huge issue, I would push it and it would click right back in, but now the issue has become extremely out of hand. Both hinges malfunction now, screws are missing, and the black plastic bottom detatches a considerable amount every time I open the laptop, and makes cringe-worthy sounds whenever I open and close the machine.   Reading through other people experiencing this issue, I'm extremely disheartened that HP didn't issue a recall on this product, or make an effort to reach out to users to let them know a solution. My hopes in this contact is to hear back from an HP rep in hopes of some repair with little or no cost to me. The machine has never been dropped or mishandled, and works very well aside from this important functional issue (the opening and closing of the product). Hope to hear back from someone soon. Thank you.

I paid what I thought was a fairly high price for what seemed to be a solid looking computer a little over 3 years ago. The hinge started having issues before my additional warranty was up, but the seller of it (Frys) said it isnt likely that it would be covered because it appeared to have been dropped which wasn't true.  Now I read that others have had the same issue and that it is poorly designed, probably purposely.   I will be more careful next time and buying from HP won't be my choice.

Hey all

So, I didn't want to resort to this and potentially waste peoples time but I really can't reach a conclusion. I'm running a HP Envy 15, (full specs below) and I can't decide whether with NVIDIA Experience optimising GTA whether I could play GTA at a decent (>25fps) framerate on medium settings or not. I've tried 'Can I run it' but whilst it says I can run minimum I'm struggling to interpret whether that means I could run it decently or not!

System specs as follows:

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4700MQ CPU @ 2.40GHz, 4 cores, 8 logical processors
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 840M, 2GB
Memory: 12GB DDR3

Can anyone give me any advice? Any other specs that I should post to make it easier to decide?

Thanks a ton,
- Clubmeber

A:Could I run GTA V? HP ENVY 15

Yes, and very fast. The RAM you have really helps in performance. It should be about 45 FPS at an average. NVIDIA Experience shouldn't give you lag unless it does on games that are less computer demanding. High settings should work fine at 30 FPS or so (with your specs).
It will be a lot easier to decide if you gave your OS bit size (32-Bit, 64-Bit, etc.)

If you have a 32-Bit OS, GTA V should give you 30-40 FPS on high settings.

If you have a 64-Bit OS, GTA V should give you 40-60 FPS on high settings.

Hope this helps!

Posting in this forum as no other form seemed to be the appropriate place. Thinking of purchasing HP Envy desktop 750-229. Problem is I need to blow away windows 10 and install my Windows 7 OS from an image. Do to so I need the windows 7 drivers for this desktop. Does HP have these available for download? 

A:HP ENVY 750-229

Hi: It appears that HP has an incomplete set of W7 drivers for that PC. Missing chipset, usb3, wireless to name a few. They also show an AMD graphics driver, but the product specs indicate the PC comes with a nvidia graphics card. http://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/HP-ENVY-750-200-Desktop-PC-series/9259609/model/1052... You should be able to find any missing drivers you need from the hardware manufacturers' websites (Intel, Nvidia, etc).

I just got my HP Envy  in mid September, and it's just an awful computer.  Slow to start, slow to run, the screen is buggy, and it is constantly loading, almost like it never finishes starting up. The first couple of times I used it it shut off due to some file error (which I unfortunately didn't write down the exact error). Tried to return it, I missed the 15 day mark at Best Buy. SO  my question - is this an issue anyone else has had?   I don't even know what board to put this on because I have no idea if it's hardware or software.  Just hoping someone's had a similar issue and knows a fix or can suggest what testing method I should use (while browsing the support options it looked like there were a couple of different ones). I bought this so I could avoid driving to the school computer lab every time I have homework, but that's exactly what I've been doing because this computer is such a hassle.   Any advice is appreciated. Thanks.
