Hello, As I've learned the "NEW" 2016 HP Spectre x360 13-w000 (Kaby Lake) does not have a digitizer built-in and thus does not support any Active Pen/Stylus. The only option available is to use some capacitive one. I have a Wacom Bamboo Stylus which performs horribly on my x360. Do you guys have any good suggestion for such a capacitive stylus, which is precise enough for occational note-taking, document marking, etc? Thanks!

 The computer was purchased on December 10 2016, and on February 11 2017 I presented the fan system error 90B.
The error appears and disappears, I update the BIOS but it is still happening. The equipment is impeccable, so I discard dirt. Also the fan seems to work, and I have monitored the temperature and it has not changeda, although it has warmed considerably since I bought it. But the error still appears. The equipment has warranty but I buy it in USA and I am from Costa Rica.

Has anyone seen / heard information regarding a possible ETA for the new Kaby Lake based Spectre x360 variants in the UK? It's exactly what I'm looking for, and I was really excited about the October release date, only to be disappointed when it came and went and yet it's still not available in the UK I've customized the spec that I'm after on the US store: 13", 1920x1080, Core i7-7500U, 16GB RAM, 512GB NVMe SSD, Win 10 Pro x64 - except of course it's lacking the UK keyboard. Any idea how much longer I have to wait before I can replace my ancient 8+ year old laptop with this laptop of my dreams? Thanks,Alex

I was running an emulator to see if my computer can halndle the output, and now I am here. My screen suddenly went black through some gameplay and will not turn back on. My laptop was charging and I had a USB Type C dongle/ hub connected to it. After my screen went black, I tried pressing the power button to power it back on, but it didn't work. I unplugged all other peripherals and tried the power button again, nothing. I don't mind performing a hard reset, I just need help turning my laptop back on for school. The LEDs don't even turn on when I try to reconnect the charger and the same goes for the LED on the power button. Please help. Thanks

Hi, So having a bit of a frustrating experience finding a working dock for the new Spectre X360 (Kaby Lake). I need something with PD (power in), HDMI/DVI or DP out (two ports if fine, one up to 4k), and a few USB ports. I've tried a cheap aukey one and though HDMI works it's buggy. I'm now looking at this guy P5Q54UT - HP Elite Thunderbolt 3 Dock 65W but not entirely sure if it'll work. A few pluggable docks specifically mention that HP is not supported or claim HP doesn't support alt-mode (for USB C) and PD 2.0 spec. Any guidance is appreciated.

Hello, I got my 2016 HP Spectre x360 (Kaby Lake) laptop a week ago, and it seems the battery life is very underwhelming. I get around 4 hours from mixed usage (browsing/productivity/media). I had the previous gen. Spectre and almost similar tasks got me 8hr+ battery life. I've tried battery testing/calibration etc. suggested in the support pages. Anyone else having similar problems?

Hello,I've followed some posts on this support forum, regarding if the new Spectre x360 Kaby Lake (Product# W9B13AV_1 http://store.hp.com/us/en/pdp/Laptops/hp-spectre-x360-convertible-laptop-13t-touch-w9b13av-1) supports or not an active pen.What we've learned is that this laptop doesn't work with HP Active Pen (Product# T5E12AA#ABL http://store.hp.com/us/en/pdp/accessories-88342--1/hp-active-pen-t5e12aa-abl) and HP Active Stylus (Product# J4R51AA#ABL http://store.hp.com/us/en/pdp/accessories-88342--1/hp-active-pen-j4r51aa-abl), based on some answers from the support team on previous posts, and based on the information contained in this page: http://support.hp.com/au-en/document/c05166879.Some early online reviews stated that there is no support for active pen, Lisa Gade from MobileTechReview said: "The one feature missing from the previous generation is the active digitizer for the optional HP Active Stylus (a Synaptics pen technology). Given how heavily HP has advertised this feature in the previous generation, I'm surprised they removed it. And yes, it's really gone--there's no active digitizer listed in device manager, and I tested both Synaptics pens and Wacom and N-Trig pens just in case they'd switched to a different pen technology. That means you can use your finger or a capacitive stylus like those made for the iPad Air, but not a precise pen with pressure levels and palm rejection."http://www.mobiletechreview.com/notebooks/HP-Spectre-x360-Late-2016.htmSo, Is HP Spec...

Considering this new revision has been out for about a couple months now, I am really surprised that no one has posted about this yet. My question is simply exactly as the title says. Does the newest HP Spectre x360 13-w0XX that has the new Kaby Lake i7 support two 4k displays? I know that because of having Thunderbolt 3 ports, it has the right connections to support it. I guess the real question is can the Intel Graphics 620 support that? I know it can support one 4k display, but not seen anything about dual 4k displays.  I just recently purchased this lap top, and I love it so far. However 1 of the main reasons I bought it was because it was 1 of very few lap tops on the market with Thunderbolt 3. I think the only Windows laptop that had not only 1 but 2 of them. So if this laptop has the ports to support dual 4k without a graphics card that can, then that will be incredibly disappointing.

Has anyone tried to update to Windows 10 Anniversary update? It's not listed by HP as supported (http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c05195282), though it's a NEW model. I tried it once before, and that created issues with the HP Recovery Manager, and I reverted back. A few days ago, I got a BIOS update with the "Anniversary Update Comapatibility fix", however HP is yet to update their compatibility list. The incompetent phone support is again proved worthless as they don't seem to have any idea . I don't want to go through with all the hassle of updating and downgrading again, so I'd like to know if anyone has successfully got the anniversary update. Thanks!

I'm having trouble with super scratchy/distorted audio on the newest (Oct 2016, 7th gen i7) Spectre x360 (X7V22UA) and am wondering if this is just inherent to the design or if my machine has a hardware problem. When my machine was brand new out of the box, it sounded like the speakers were blown out when playing certain frequencies such as the Windows 10 notification tone. I did the standard troubleshooting, a HP representative asked me to send it in for repair, allegedly the speakers were replaced, but the replaced unit is just as bad. When audio plays at even modest volumes (right now I have it at 36/100), I can feel the laptop vibrating and rattling.I know this is a laptop and I'm not expecting the world's greatest sound, but the distortion is really annoying. Is this just inherent to the new x360s or am I just unlucky with my RMA? I've tried updating drivers, BIOS, etc. and the problem persists. Headphones are fine. It's definitely the external speakers on this laptop that are vibrating around.Steps to reproduce:Right click on sound in system trayChoose "Playback devices"Choose the only option, "Realtek High Definition Audio (SST)"Click "Configure"Click the "Test" button that plays three chimes in each speaker.Listen to it rattle.Is this happening to anyone else? Seems like it's identical to the symptoms of this problem, but that's for an older model of the x360 and this new model has different hardware. Also, the old problem was never resolved.&...

Hi, I just got the new Kaby Lake (Intel's 7th gen) Spectre x360 and ran it through its paces. It seems to be a solid machine, but there's one serious issue so far - external displays flashing on and off, at least when hooked up with a USB-C Thunderbolt 3 to DisplayPort adapter (this one from CableMatters: http://amzn.to/2gKQrVR. What happens when I connect external monitors (1 or 2-3 via DisplayPort MST) is sometimes they work fine.Sometimes, if I disconnect and reconnect, they start flashing on and off.Sometimes, the whole laptop freezes upon connection (happened twice today so far).And finally sometimes the externals are not working at all - the system detects them, but selecting Extend or anything in multi-monitor mode just reverts back to Single.Oh, and this happens once: http://i.imgur.com/Su9zInD.png http://i.imgur.com/qG9K8yC.png - the external display got stuck in a 640x480 generic mode and would not turn on.As you can see, it's a cluster@$%*. Here's a video of the flickering/flashing (case #2 above): https://youtu.be/OkngFs_h2xk. Both the laptop and the 7th gen Intel chip are relatively new, so I haven't been able to find a thread discussing potential culprits, or fixes from HP.

To put the comment in context i originally posted this in the "Battery drain when shut-down" forum. Ok, trying to figure out how to get rid of the last 2-4% overnight drain i went through device manager and checked for outdated drivers, i then noticed that the driver for the NVME storage controller was a generic windows driver from 2006, tried to search for a update via device manager and hp's support page but no luck. Then i rememered that back in the old days i used to use driver update tools to fetch the latest drivers for my computer, so i installed iobit driver booster 4 (free) and gave it a spin. Guess what, it gave me a samsung driver from august 2016. Did a reboot and just to make sure it was working as it should, i fired up ATTO and CrystalDiskMark and ran benchmarks. I know what numbers the SSD got before and what reviewers of this machine have gotten, which was about 1700mb/s read and 600mb/s write. This is what i get after i replaced the generic nvme controller driver with the one from samsung:3000mb/s read and 1200mb/s write!!! Im not sure how the new driver will affect battery life or anything, but i figuered i'd let you guys know, i mean that is almost double the performance of the generic windows driver.   Try it out if you want guys, run a couple of SSD benchmarks before you install the new driver so that you have something to compare the after results with PS!

Yes the driver update is likely the Samsung NVMExpress driver update 2.1: http://www.samsung.com/semiconductor/minisite/ssd/download/tools.html I installed it in my Spectre 13 Pro and it updated the Microsoft Standard NVME driver from 2006 to the Samsung NVME dated 12/8/16. Unfortunately my speed increases were not as dramatic but there was an improvement....about 10% on both read and write side. I have the Samsung MZVLV256  aka SM951..M.2 disk and read is about 1500 and write is a bit over 500.  I did the same upgrade to my Zbook G3 MWS which has the 512 gig SM951 and this one is giving me fits...read is about 1300 but write shows up as an appaling 9 mbps. Has to be something wrong. Results are just about the same with or without the Samsung NVME driver.  Still the Zbook "feels" very peppy. Boot time is good and everything seems to run fine. So not sure whether I should be concerned or not.

I was noticing severe battery drain on my one month old spectre x360 i7 7500 ssd 512 GB variant. the laptop was taking more than 3 hours to charge and the charge was not holding for more than two and half hours for normal web browsing. It was also discharging at an unacceptable pace while completely turned off. I had updated my BIOS firmware to F.10 and also applied the Sphinx fix as described [url ="http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/Battery-drain-when-shut-down-HP...] in post 79 by Senchronize. However, the problem persisted. I decided to do a complete factory reset. Backed up my data and created a USB recovery using the HP support assistant software. However, while applying the factory reset, after the formatting of hard drive stage was completed the programmed returned an errors message "HP recovery manager failed error code=0xEFFFFF23". I tried doing it again and it would return the same error. I did a hardware diagnosis from BIOS and it does nothing. Tried loading a fresh Operating system through an OS bootable USB. The system prepares for install. But when it is ready it install, it fails to see any hard drive at all. I checked the HP support page for this machine to find if there is a SSD driver that I can load during the OS installation. However, I couldn't find the SSD drivers associated with this machine.

Hello, I purchased a new spectre x360, w013dx model number, from best buy on Feb 11 2017 and I seem to be having an issue that has popped up on this forum, YouTube, and various other Google searches, namely the loose, or more appropriately, the overly noisy and clicky touchpad. I am wondering A) is this a condition that becomes worse, progressively that is, or does it get better over time as the touch pad and other components get "broken in" so to speak, and mate together better, like using lapping compound on machine parts? B) If this is considered an issue, is there a fix for it if I send it in to HP? It is moderately bothersome to me, and in haven't really experienced it before on other laptops. I really like to use the 2 and 3 finger swipes and scroll features, and when I push down on the touchpad without clicking it, it feels loose and there is an audible click when I press down on it. I am coming from and Acer laptop that had an extremely smooth and oversized glass track pad so I may be overly aware because I got used to that one and it was very solid. I do not want to return it and plan to keep it because otherwise it is fantastic, but I have seen other people say this and I will echo it here, this is a 1200 to 1400 dollar device and  I want to make sure it is in peak condition because I plan to keep it for at least 2 to 3 years. If someone from HP could respond I would appreciate it. Thank you.

Hi, just ordered the Spectre x360 after a lot of googling around about it's active pen support.  I haven't been able to find the official "HP Active Stylus" in my country (Norway), which I've read quite a bit of negativity about anyways, however I found one named "HP Pro Tablet Active Pen" (K8P73AA) which according to a reply by an HP employee in an older thread (http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Software-and-How-To-Questions/Spectre-x360-Active-Pen-Stylus-C...) is supposedly supported by the Synpatics digitizer in the x360. The official documentation however, has no mention of this. I've also read an overwhelming amount of feedback that a recent firmware update disabled the support for the Dell stylus which many apparently found success in, so this is another reason I am uncertain. Could this update have disabled the support for the other HP styluses as well? Before i go out and spend a lot of money on this pen I was wondering whether someone has tried the HP Pro Tablet Active Pen themselves on the x360, or whether any HP employee could confirm this compatibility. Again, this is the black stylus (K8P73AA) (http://www8.hp.com/us/en/products/tablets/product-detail.html?oid=7530365) im looking at, not the silver/white one found here: http://store.hp.com/us/en/pdp/hp-active-penThe lack of synaptics-supported styluses (and documentation thereof) was almost a real deal-breaker for me since im going...

Dear HP support / communityI entered university a while ago and for several reasons, purchased a HP spectre x360 13-4290nz. Possibly the most important one being able to take notes digitally (typing would lessen the learning effect). Therefore I am very dependent on stylus support.Now, I wasn't able to find evidence which confirms that pens will not work with my model (except for my experiences of course). I have tried various styli (like the active pen for Windows surface or the Dell active Pen, which works fine with other spectre models (as stated in some forums). The PC Tablet Settings show a "Limited Touch Support" for this convertible and according to the HP assistant, my PC is fully updated.The piece that is missing here - as far as I was able to understand the conversations in several forums / threads - is the firmware, which recognizes pens. Some days ago (I think around Nov. 26, 2016), I saw that some other models of the newest HP series got a firmware update on their support page and some users wrote, that this fixed the problem and they were able to use the pen from this point out. I have checked the support page for my model and wasn't able to find a firmware update or something in this direction at all (http://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/HP-Spectre-13-4200-x360-Convertible-PC/10862116/mode...).Now my main questions would be if the firmware is indeed the problem and if there will be a update that will enable sytlus support in the future or if there ar...

HP have replaced the screen on the laptop which they reported as faulty but I have tried a bamboo and a surface pen on it and neither of them work.  I bought this exclusively for use with one not and meetings and as it stands it is a lovely laptop except for this crucial point. if the purchased pen does not work, then what pens will? Any and all help given will be appreciated.

I received a new  HP Spectre x360 13-w030ca today.  I need a stylus solution and there are conflicting posts about which stylus if any will work for this device.  I am not going to be drawing.  I need an input device for notes and for digital signatures on forms.  Any assistance would be appreciated.

Guys hav had this computer for over 1 yr. previous to spectre I had used he elite convertible with the passive stylus without any issues (4 years). With the spectre the HP stylus goes from working  to not working. Have to constantly shake it, unscrew the cap and then re tghten. My other tricks are to close it of one mate and then reopen or completely restart the computer. Been over a year year and I butt he computer because the the stylus capability. It seems to me there is some stating that puts the stylus or the tablet n sleep mode.  Note issue occurs not only in one note but also when on desk top point at icons. Yes I am using the HP approved stylus. Also have the Dell stylus from last year that experiences the same issue.  What at is the fix to this problem. Love the computer but will hav to migrate to either apple or Microsoft if n fix.

I have tried to get the hp active pen to work with my spectre x360 but no luck other than pen button launches one note.It seems from looking through all forums that most pens worked with this model and others until windows 10 update.I have the latest windows 10 as of 11/27/2016. What pens work? what are my options to use this in tablet mode as a drawing tool. Im not interested in a wacom external device. thanks

Hey all! I just bought a brand new HP Spectre x360 13-t touch OLED display in ash silver (specifically the P3A84AV) with 8GB RAM and 256 solid state drive. 6th gen intel i7 running Windows 10. Just after purchasing this I came across a forum posted back in February that discussed the fact that the Spectre computers say they are stylus compatible, but really they do not come with the correct software or firmware (I can't recall which) needed to respond to a stylus. In fact, you must uninstall something and then install a different firmware in order to add the compatibility. My question is: Is this still the case with the new Spectres, or has HP fixed this? If it arrives and is not compatible, does anyone know the steps needed to add compatibility? Stylus compatibility was a HUGE selling point for me here... Thanks much for all your help!

Problem Solved: The HP Spectre x360 OLED version is NOT pen-enabled. This is a hardware issue. There is no digitizer function built into the screen.  There is no known plan to make it pen-enabled at this time. HP is aware of customer complaints about the misleading ads and is working internally to try and correct it. I know, BUMMER. I am in the process of returning the one I ordered. I had hoped this would be the Surface Killer it could have been... oh well...

Hi all, quick question: I know HP does not officially support active stylus for the Spectre. But still, I need that! That's why I have to ask before I buy... So, does someone know if the X360 13-4132NG does support active stylus? That's the model with the 512 GB SSD. Thanks!
