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.)

In the Dell XPS 13 (9360). Using the latest BIOS 1.3.2 (but the old previous BIOS version was the same).

If you go to the "Fn Lock Options" under BIOS, there are 2 options, they are listed as:
  Lock Mode Disable/Standard   = The F1-12 Keys behave as function keys
  Lock Mode Enable/Secondary = The F1-12 Keys control the secondary functions.

These options are Swapped. If you disable the "Fn Lock" and set the mode to "Lock Mode Disable/Standard", log into Windows, and Press F1, it will then MUTE the system. Even though it should act like an "F1" Key.
If you go back into BIOS, set the mode to "Lock Mode Enabled/Secondary", log into the system and Press F1, then the Help comes up.

The options are swapped on these two configure options. Please update the text in the BIOS to match the appropriate configuration. Thanks. I've included a ScreenShot of the BIOS options. "Fn Lock" does do what it describes (disables Fn-Esc). Doesn't matter if u turn this on or off. If you have it set up as I do below, the Fn Keys are set for the proper Function (F1-F12) operation. However, the text says it should do its secondary functions in this mode.

Hi, I just opened up a new ProBook 470 and am doing my standard installation routine. Unfortunately for legacy reasons our company network drive is as low as F:  and so it is usually the case that I have to go through disk management and change the drive letter of the CD Drive or sometimes a partition or in the past HP Tools in order to clear that drive letter for the company network drive. However, on this machine I suddenly do not have the option to do that, I have the option on other drives to change their letters, but not on the HP Tools drive which is hogging the only letter that I actually need. Does anyone know something i can do to kick HP Tools off this drive letter? I have to be able to assign F to the company drive. Perfectly happy to go through a system restore or anything else that might help if there's a way to tell it to bypass F in the process. Thanks

A:HP Tools not Drive Letter Changeable

@FuseMP Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums! You should be able to do this OUTSIDE of Windows with no problems -- but for that, you will need a bootable windows partitioning utility -- and this is one:  http://www.partitionwizard.com/partitionmagic/partition-magic-boot-cd.html I use this all the time, so I know it works. Once you have this, you have a choice of media to create:1) If you can boot from CD, download and install ImgBurn and use the Write Image to Disk option to create a bootable CD.2) If you can boot from USB, download and install RUFUS and use the option to create a bootable USB stick from the ISO file.Boot your PC with the media you created. You should now be able to do partition changes without problems.Good Luck

I've been extracting a lot of files to the same folder lately and was wondering if there is a way to change the default folder that the 'extraction wizard' in windows wants to extract them to, instead of having to browse for the same folder every time. Actually, since it wants to extract it to the place that the file is already downloaded, i could just change where the default settings of where my downloads go. ha, i guess i kind of just answered my own question, but I'm still curious as to whether or not there's a way to change where extraction wizard wants to extract instead of the folder where the files are downloaded. just trying to find a way to save some time instead of browsing through the cdrive to find the same folder everytime.

The computer was perfectly fine yesterday; normal speed and using the default Windows 7 aero theme (save the background obviously).

Since today the computer is suddenly slow from the start-up already; When it comes to the "configuring windows" screen it takes about a minute instead of the second to get to the login screen. Then when I log in, everything is in the classic theme. A warning also pop-ups during start-up.

Here's a screenshot where you see the task bar in classic theme while it should be aero theme. You also see there the warning on start-up. It basically says it can't connect with a Windows server, namely the System Event Notification Service.

After start-up other problems are occurring.
First of all, parts of the computer has become slow. The most notable is right-clicking on the desktop (and only the desktop!), it will take ages before the right-click menu is loaded.
Secondly, I can not change the theme, was my initial thought to do. All themes except the classic themes are greyed out and not selectable.
Thirdly, the antivirus, Avira Antivir, starts up disabled, and whatever I try, I can not enable it. This started to happen after a few start-ups.

Have you ever seen a BIOS that has absolutely no boot options other than the internal disk.

I bought this little 11.6" Asus X205TA 1.0 laptop which is actually a handy little device. It obviously has no optical drive but 2 USB ports. But the temporary and permanent boot order does only allow booting from the internal disk. I am really stuck if I want to e.g. recover from a Macrium image.

I guess I will have to make my own refresh images. And even those I can only use as long as the machine functions. Any other ideas.

I have two bios options in the bios that will probably make the pc faster, but I want to know that it is safe. The first one is the HT speed, it is set at 400, but I can set it to 800. Should I do this?

The second is the DRAM Dimm voltage adjustment. I have geil value ram ddr400 running at 227 fsb with 2.5-3-3-6 timings. The voltage is set at 1.6, should I set it to 1.65?

Will these settings make a performance difference?
 

A:Weird Bios options I don't get?????

hey there,

The ht speed is the bandwidth between the CPU and the AGP slot. You dont really need to up it unless your having trouble with your graphics card.

The only reason you would need to up the voltage on the RAM is if you have overclocked it. If you have then a higher voltage will make it more stable. If you havent, you'll just be giving it a higher voltage.

Hope this helps

 Where can I find an operating manual for the HP branded motherboard? My Oct. 2016 (build date) Omen 870-030vx desktop has 4x SATA connectors on the MB (Z170 chipset).  It has a 512gig SSD boot drive attached to SATA#1. I attached 2x 6gig HDDs to SATA#3 and #4 thinking that HDDs are usually connected in pairs for RAID such that channel 1 would be SATA#1&#2 and channel 2 would be SATA#3 & #4. The BIOS set up lets you change from AHCI mode to RAID but it never gives you an option to choose which set of HDDs you want to place in the array - nor does it have an option to choose RAID "0" or RAID "1", etc. If RAID is choosen in the BIOS then the computer fails to boot.  What have I done wrong here?

Hello.I have a G40-30 laptop.I changed the hard disk and installed windows 10. The problem is when I boo my computer after post and before windows it shows me 2 messages. "Windows boot manager boot failed" where I press ok and then "Lenovo recovery system boot failed" where I press ok again and then it enters Windows normally. Those errors are because the original Hard Disk had installed 2 partitions extra one for each error. From Bios I change from EFI to legacy and I change to "legacy first" for boot priority. But after saving and restart the "legacy first" boot priority is not saved and it has changed back to EFI. The fist chane remains saved as I selected it.I tried updating the BIOS with the latest version but when I select to procced with the update the computer restarts and the BIOS is not updated.Again the computer works fine but I cannot save the changes I make to the BIOS.

Abdo2, welcome to the forum. I am not certain that you can see more options in the BIOS.  Once you're in the BIOS, you can use the arrow keys to move from section to section and through the options in each section.  If the option is greyed out, it means that it is not available.  HP keeps their BIOS options to a minimum. Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

I have an HP 6305 Pro with an AMD A4-5300B processor. The processor has a feature called AMD turbo that causes it to automatically overclock itself. I would like to disable this feature (as my processor gets hot - sometimes even above the safe limit - when it goes into turbo), and have heard that the way to turn off turbo this is through the BIOS. However, my computer's BIOS is extremely rudimentary, and doesn't have many options. It doesn't have any way to adjust processor settings or even to alter fan speed (other than one setting called "Fan Idle Mode"). I discovered all of this in my efforts to troubleshoot a series of BSODs I've been getting. I've heard that some computers have a hidden BIOS menu with more options. One Internet video I saw claimed that the way to access this hidden menu is to press CTRL + F10 or CTRL + F11 instead of just F10 when booting up. However, I tried this (with both combinations), and was still not able to access any hidden advanced BIOS menu. Does anyone know if the HP 6305 Pro's BIOS has a hidden menu, and if so, how to access it?

This isn't the same system that I have, but can you use AMD Overdrive in Windows. I know that AMD also allows CPU throttling in the high performance power settings - adjusting the percentages down should take care of any overheating issues. You can view status of heat in overdrive?
