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.)

 When is USB not USB?When it's an HP USB port on a 1040G3!On this HP device the USB ports do not work as normal USB ports.  So are not complient to the USB standard (not just on video to drive a monitor)Not only do you need a USB converter for the USBc port to get USB3 support, but the two main ports do not support many USB devices that have the driver within the drvice. So when you connect a device to one of the 2 USB ports on the side of the PC, it's pot luck if it works as many are just not connecting or offereing you the file view. you do not even see the loding driver device redy for use as this process looks not to be running. Some phones will some will not, such as the MS lumia 920, it will only connect and then only some times, on the USB c port adapter for USB3!  Can not connect phone to get images of error messages out of it to go into emails. So is this even true USB compliant? some memory sticks will connect and some will not, so that the IT department could not image the PC.Kingston DataTraveler will.Never had any issue with other PCs or with the devices we are trying to use, they still connect correctly and instantly to other PCs.

Microsoft has released NVMe Hotfixes 2990941 & 3087873 that add native NVMe drivers to Windows 7.
However if I am say installing Windows 7 SP1 on say Samsung NVme drive and Samsung has released suitable drivers in the form of INF, SYS and CAT files, do I really need to integrate these MS Hotfixes in Windows 7?
Can Windows 7 SP1 supplied with Samsung NVMe drivers (Either slip streamed or during install) be able to detect Samsung NVMe drive and install itself on to it?
As the title says are those MS Hotfixes a must (sort of pre-requsite) to get NVMe drive detected during installation, apart from any vendor provided drivers?
Thanks.

Hello.  I am having an issue with my USB Type C port on my EliteBook 1040 G3.  Can the USB C port on this laptop be used to pass video?  I have looked through the documentation on line, but it makes no reference to the the USB C being able to act like a display port. I purchased a travel monitor (ASUS) that uses USB C, but when I plug in the monitor in the USB C port all I get is Windows does not recognise this device".  I have update all my HP drivers, and all appears to be in order. So my question is, can this laptop use the USB C port for video, and if so how does one enable this. Thank You!

Although if could be a h/w issue, you mention the touchpad works within the BIOS to point around the menus. I would encourage you to run HP SDM (www.hp.com/go/sdm) and update all hardware drivers and BIOS (BIOS needs to be done by itself). That should help with your issue.  Do not install any other software suggested by SDM unless you know you use that particular tool

Hello @OskarB98? Welcome to the HP Support forum. I am afraid that there is no other options other than HP Support for business. Most business class notebooks (including yours Elitebook and Probook) have better security. You will have to contact HP Support for assistance on removing the password. Here is how >> http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/ww-phone-assist.html>> http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/business-support.html HP Business support should be able to send you a customised SMC.bin file and instructions which you can use  to reset the password. I am sure they do not need any kind of proof - just be somewhat pushy. In order to generate this BIN file they will need your serial number, product number, UUID, etc... found in the startup menu (F1) .  Hope this helps. Let me know if you face any issues.

Hi I have a brand new 1040 G3 EliteBook and I really would like to lock the Fn-Key so that I do not have to press two keys each time I want to adjust screen brightness or volume. In the BIOS there is no entry for "action keys" - only to switch "ctrl" and "FN" keyThe combo "FN+left alt + left shift + CAPS" does also not work  So I did contact HP Support via the HP homepage and after some time I did get the answer that this option just is not available on my Elitebook.  I am really, I mean really, suprised and astonishedby this. This is a common feature on every Notebook (I can't remember coming across one that did not support this in the last years) and the direct competitors to the Elitebook line (Lenovo Thinkpads, Dell Latitude and Toshiba businees line) all do have this feature. So I really wonder what has come upon HP engeneers to just ignore that feature for the Elitebook lineup   !? - would be like BMW would say: "sorry automatic headlights just isn't available on the 7 series" - what !?  So please HP think about this EDIT: What I also do not understand is the inconsistency within one company, some HP notebooks ahve that feature, others just don't !? So I would like to aks HP: Is it bug that its missing in the 1040 BIOS? thx for reading

Hello,I just got this HP Elitebook 1040 G3 laptop. I have it set up at home connecting two external monitors. One is connected via HDMI, and the second one via the VGA adaptor (see picture). I can see images on both monitors, and even enable the laptop screen as the third screen as well. However, the monitor connected with HDMI turns blank intermittently and seamingly randomly as well. The screen goes blank for about 2 -3 seconds and then comes back to life. I have tried swapping the cable and the monitor to see if there is problem with the monitor or the cable.  I came to the conclusion that the problem is not with the cable nor the monitor. Whichever monitor is connected via HDMI cable to the laptop is the one experiencing the problem. The other monitor connecting via VGA does not have such intermittent blank screen issue. Finally, I tried using only one HDMI connected monitor without the VGA monitor. Without the VGA monitor, the sole HDMI monitor stays on and intermittment blanking did not occure. Does anyone know how to fix this intermiteent blank screen problem?

I have just bought a HP Probook 430 G3 and I have the same problem. I usually need the number keyboard so I bought the notebook taking into account that just pressing the FN key and any the letter "j" for example, I would get the number "1".
 
I have looked in the BIOS and there is no option to FN key except "Swap between Fn an Ctrl". I think that something is going wrong. Why I say this? If I do not activate the Bloq Num (F12) this are the actions and there results:
 
Fn + "-" = "+".
Fn + "" = "-".
Fn + "p" = "*"
Fn + "Zero" = "/"
 
But...
 
Fn + "." = nothing
Fn + "m" = nothing
Fn + "j" = nothing
Fn + "k" = nothing
Fn + "o" = the cursor moves to the right.

I have two Samsung NVMe 950 Pro (MZVKV512) that came preinstalled in a Lenovo ThinkPad P50 running Windows 10 x64. The Samsung Magician (latest v4.9.6) software does not detect the drives as Samsung Brand SSDs and therefore OS Optimization is unavailable (the only option is to run a benchmark). Samsung Magician supports this SSD as I can see users in other forums using the software on their systems (not necessarily Lenovo). I have also installed the Samsung NVMe Controller driver and this is showing in Device Manager. There are no system updates available and UEFI BIOS is up to date (version from the 4th May). Any ideas?

Hello everyone,
 
I have HP EliteBook 850 G3, SKU Number: T9X18EA#BED (is it product number?) Product Serial Number: [Personal Information Removed]
 
I am almost positive that M2 slot inside my laptop has SATA connection and not NVMe. Can anyone tell me if Im wrong?
 
I watched some videos and saw some pictures of SATA and NVMe slots and when I opened my laptop the slot looked like NVMe, according to pin positions on the connector.
 
Can someone elaborate on this and perhaps tell me if I have NVMe based on my product number, maybe?

A:Elitebook 850 G3 has SATA or NVMe M2 slot?

Hey guys,

I'm at my wits end here and hopefully someone can help me out.

I recently bought a Dell xps 8900, a Samsung 950 pro and Able Conn PCIe 3.0x4 for M.2 to install in a PCIe slot on my tower.

For the past two weeks I've been trying to either a clean install of Windows 7 from a thumb drive and by cloning using Acronis and have failed many times over.

I keep getting error messages but the drive is showing up in the bios and in system management so I'l not sure what the deal is.

I called Samsung tech support and the said their migration soft ware won't work because the sad is not install in the M.2 slot on the board and thats why i used Acronis.

When the system reboots, a line of code comes down cash but before it reboots to my other drive a see a few lines that read "ERROR" but that's about all I can read.

Hopefully someone on here can shed some light on what I'm missing.

Thanks in advance!

Well, the Ableconn M.2 adapters don't indicate support for Win7:






Quote:
Windows 10/8, Windows Server 2012 R2, Linux series, Fedora, SUSE, Ubuntu, Red Hat native drivers support both PCIe-NVMe and PCIe-AHCI


Unless you can provide the actual content of the errors you're seeing it will be difficult if not impossible to help.
