hp elitebook 8560w only powers up from the Quick Web button

Q: hp elitebook 8560w only powers up from the Quick Web button

My hp elitebook 8560w workstation has suddenly stopped working. It does not power up from the power button anymore. After several attempts, I managed to power it up, yet in a very unusual way. In order to turn it on, I have to remove battery and unplug the charger, press the power button once, return the battery and press the Quick Web button. Only by doing so, the lapton turns on normally. Couple of other things to notice as well. First, when the Laptop enters the energy-saving mode, it shuts down completely. Second, the Windows 7 welcome sound comes late (roughly 5-6 min. after boot-up) I know that these symptoms might be caused by different concurrent issues, but I would appreciate it, if you can help me out with this case. Thank you in advance

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.)

This afternoon I left my Elitebook open and running on the table and when I returned half an hour later the screen was black. I figured it had gone to sleep but when I moved my mouse nothing happened. I pushed the power button, still no response. Even after holding the power button for an extended period of time nothing happened, aside from the power led blinking for a couple of seconds. I've already tried removing the battery etc, but it didn't work. All help is appreciated.

I was thinking of upgrading the RAM in my Elitebook 8650w. I know the type of memory I need (DDR3 PC-10600 1333 Mhz) but I was wondering how many strips are build in already?I got the quad core version so my laptop has 4 slots, from which 2 are under the keyboard and I dont want to take the laptop apart. My laptop has 4 GB of RAM this moment. My question is, are there 2 strips of 2GB DDR3 RAM already installed or just 1 strip of 4 GB? Or is this something varying from factory to factory?

Hello,i have problem with my EliteBook 8560w(With dual boot Windows 7 64bit and Linux Mint 17.3 if its important). When I plug it in AC charger it turns on by itself and after 2-3 sec. it shutsdown without warning. After shutting down the laptop can't be turned on using the power button. This occurs everytime I plug it in the charger. I get the same problem when I place the battery. I tryed the following: removing RAM, removing HDD, removing BIOS battery. Everytime the laptop turns on itself immediately when plugged in then shuts down after 2-3 sec. Its not heating problem either, because fan check is passing and I have recently replaced heatsink paste.When I plugged off the power button from the motherboard, the laptop stopped turning on when pluged in, but there is no way I can turn it on. Any suggestions what can be the cause of the problem and what solution can I try?Thank you in advance.

I'm hoping someone might be able to help me diagnose this problem with my 8560W:It randomly hard locks up - ie the mouse/keyboard input stop and music playback freezes - about 10 seconds later the machine turns right off.  I haven't noticed any pattern to when it does it - sometimes it'll go for a week with no problems, other times it'll freeze before the windows sign-in screen. I've tried a fresh windows install (but have also seen the lockups in safe mode) so I don't think it's a bad driver issue. There is nothing meaningful in event viewerI suspected it might be an SSD failing - so tried another and had the same issues. I've seen the lockups on battery, and with both the power adapters I have - also on AC with the battery removed.I've run the built-in efi extensive diagnosis a few times - all passing completely. I have cleaned out the heatsinks with compressed air - though they didn't look too bad.  Keeping an eye on CPU temperatures - it does lock up some times when the temperatures are relatively low. Something I've noticed (and I don't know if it's a red herring or not) is that the system fan tends to not spin as much as it used to - ie I don't notice hearing it.  I've tried to roll back my BIOS - but haven't been able to - in Windows it tells me I can't go back, and in 'bios' it tells me it can't find the signature. Any help at this point would be appreciated.  I'd hate to have to throw the system out - it is still a ve...

Hi, I have had my Elitebook for almost 5 years now. It currently runs Windows 10 Pro 64-bit with 16 GB of RAM. I'm still running on the installed Hitachi 500 GB HDD, but it's getting a little slow for my taste and I'm worried it might fail at any time. I've been hoping to replace the 500 GB HDD with a 500 GB SSD from Samsung by cloning it, then wipe the old HDD completely, and THEN replace the optical bay with a new 2nd HDD of some unspecified capacity. My problem now: I have about 300 GB's worth of data (went to an engineering school). I spoke to an HP rep on a live chat who told me that the largest supported capacity for an SSD (that can only be in the primary slot) is 256 GB and the largest supported capacity for an HDD in the replacement bay is 500 GB. Rather than move and link my entire USER's folder to the 2nd HDD (which is possible but still confusing for me at this point), I'd like to get a second opinion from someone in the HP community. Is the capacity limitation a matter of drive height? BIOS limitation? Is it still possible to get a 500 GB SSD instead? I've seen in various forums that the user had a larger drive than suggested. Thanks.

Dear EliteBook users,Did anyone try - and succeed - adding some memory module to the primary memory slot underneath the keyboard of an EliteBook 8560w?I needed some extra memory and successfully added two modules to the slots below the bottom cover. But I needed more, and had to add it to the remaining slot just below the keybord. For that I had to remove the keyboard, but that turned out to be an impossible task.The user-guide ("Getting Started", p.45 and on) tells you how to do that, but that is definitely not correct. For instance, there is no "keyboard release cut-out", as indicated in p.46. Also the force you have to exert on the keyboard back-side is dangerouly hight (dangerous for the keyboard and for your fingers). Googling for that did not help. In fact, a bit surprisingly, I have found other two user-guides for the same model, all of them with different technics to remove the keyboard, and all of them inapropriate. To make things worse, HP support in the Netherlands said they could do nothing for me, except sending me the same manuals I already have. And there is absolutelly no available channel to complain with HP about that!I'd be grateful for any information on that.Regards.G.Oliveira.?

I have a laptop that will not charge the battery with the AC Adapter. I have tried different combinations between two chargers and two batteries and I always have the same results. The only time it will charge is when I connect it to my docking station which is a Hewlett-Packard (HP) NZ222AA - HSTNN-I10X 120W Advanced Docking Station. The charger I have is an HP PA-1151-09HA TPC-LA52 Adapter. The second charger is from another laptop. That is also the charger used in the docking station. That is an HP PA-1231-66HJ. I have tried both of these chargers in my EliteBook 8570p and they were both able to charge that laptop.  The laptop will run with the charger, without the battery. The only message the battery icon displays is "No battery detected". If I then attach the battery with the laptop still on, the message will change to "xx% and not charging. It will then run on battery power until it dies. At that point, it will turn off. If I followed the same scenario but unplugged it after attaching the battery, the message with change to "xx% and in use".  If I try to plug it in after that, it will continue to say "xx% and in use". It will not change back to "xx% and not charging". If the laptop was started with the battery in and then I plug it in, it will always say "xx% and in use".

I know in the past it was noted that you could not install these cards in a whitelist enabled BIOS, but has HP changed or updated the ability to install these cards on these specific older computers? If not, PLEASE HP, help your existing users. Please remove the whitelist from these older BIOS, specifically the ELITEBOOK 8560W. Thanks. 

A:Intel wireless-ac 7260 with Elitebook 8560w

You still have the whitelist. It is not present in computers having an Intel Core 4th gen and higher CPU, but yours is second gen so the whitelist is still a problem for you. People have been asking for "de-whitelisted" BIOS for these machines for years and it has never happened so I can't hold out any hope it ever will.  These two devices will work: Intel Centrino Ultimate-N 6300 802.11 3x3 a/g/n WiFi Adapter 572511-001Intel Centrino Advanced N 6205, 2x2 a/b/g/n WiFi Adapter 631954-001 The 6300 takes 3 antenna and the 6205 only two. Both are 2.4 and 5 ghz compatible devices and are pretty good wireless cards, just not 802.11ac.  https://www.amazon.com/Ultimate-n-6300AGN-Wirless-THINKPAD-572511-001/dp/B01EDT6I2C/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UT... https://www.amazon.com/Replacement-631954-001-Intel-PCI-express-Wireless/dp/B00TI8CMX8/ref=sr_1_1?ie... The above are very strong wireless cards, particularly the 6300 with 3 antennae if your laptop has 3 antennae. I am sure it has at least 2. I wish I could link you to a workable 802.11ac card but I cannot and these are the best you can get.  If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

Hello.I own an elitebook 8560w since 2012.I had never ever used its battery,because actually i never needed to (I used it pretty much as a desktop). Yesterday,i bought a genuine hp-battery specific for my computer.And here is the problem that occured:While my computer is ON with the battery disconnected,when i connect the battery,the power switches from ac to battery like it should,but the battery is NOT charging. Moreover,i dont have the "plugged in,not charging" problem like most of other people in forum discussions,but right after the moment i insert the battery,the charger connected to my laptop is totally ignored!Like its not connected at all! As a result,if i disconnect the battery,the laptop power doesnt switch back to the charger,but shuts down ,as it doesnt "see" any power supply.Not only that,but even if it shuts down it will not start up,until i disconnect and re-connect the charger (maybe because it is still waiting to get power from battery which was disconnected and is not switching to the charger supply). Finally,i ran a battery test in hp connection manager and result was that battery is "OK". I have my laptop on dual boot (Windows-7-64 / Kali-linux ) and all these problems above apply to Kali as well,which leads me to the conclusion that it isnt a software problem. Also,i have to mention something important: After the original charger i had bought the laptop with,stopped working 3 years ago,i didnt buy the genuine,but a universal...

The fans start and the lights on the drives flash but thats all, no matter how many times or how long I press the on/off switch nothing happens.

I have had a little look at the on/off button to see if it's jammed but nothing happens.

Okay, I've had my Emachines C2825 for almost four years now. It's had many problems already: the cpu was overheating a couple times last year. I bought a system fan which took care of that problem. only a couple months ago i replaced the hard drive due to a whining noise which i understand means it would have died on me. NOW THE LATEST PROBLEM: the pc shuts down automatically and then wont turn on until i unplug it from the psu and plug it in again. I of course took the cover off and checked it out. i turned it on without the monitor plugged in and then rebooted with it plugged in. the monitor would go on standby just before it hit the logon screen. That happened multiple times. So i took the cover off again, checked it out, and put it back together......now what ........as soon as I plug it in, it turns on, but the power button light and the hard drive light does not show up. the power button will not turn the pc on or off, and i can't get a signal from the monitor.

Wow, that was long, but that should be it.......I hope someone can explain this and/or tell me how to fix it.

How stupid lol! Thanks everyone for your help! Using LAN/WLAN switching LAN/WLAN switching (available on select models only) is a setting in the BIOS. The wireless LAN device is enabled unless the computer is connected by an integrated network interface card (NIC) to an active wired LAN. When the computer is connected to a wired LAN, the wireless network is turned off until the wired LAN is disconnected. This is called LAN/WLAN switching and is most useful if you switch back and forth regularly between a wired LAN and a wireless LAN. LAN/WLAN switching can be disabled using the Computer Setup utility.NOTE:This option does not apply to Bluetooth or WWAN. To enable or disable LAN/WLAN switching: 1. Either turn on or restart the computer. 2. While the "Press f10 to enter setup" message is displayed in the lower-left corner of the screen, press f10 to enter the Computer Setup utility. 3. Use the arrow keys to navigate to System Configuration > Built-In Device Options > LAN/WLAN switching, and then to select Enable or Disable.

Recently purchased a refurb HP Elitebook 8440p, and noticed that even though the mute button works the quick key just above the keyboard is always orange. Is there a way for me to correct this so it shows orange only when muted and green when not muted?

Hi, Try the following. Download the IDT Audio installer found on the link below and save it to your Downloads folder. IDT HD Audio Installer. When done, open windows Control Panel, open Device Manager and open up Sound, Video and Game Controllers.  Right click the IDT device and select Uninstall - you should also get a prompt to remove the current driver, tick the box to allow this and then proceed with the uninstall. When complete, download and reinstall the Chipset driver found on the following link. Chipset Driver. When thie Chipset reinstallation has completes, restart the notebook and let Windows fully load - it will automatically load an audio driver, but just let this complete.  Then open your Downloads folder, right click on the IDT installer and select 'Run as Administrator' to start the installation.  When this has completed, restart the notebook again before checking the function of the mute button led. Regards, DP-K

My friend puts Windows 7 Ultimate on my computer and when I got it back, I noticed the my mute button was not turning orange when used, then I noticed my QuickPlay buttons didnt work at all. I read almost all the threads and was able to get my QuickPlay working again but for some reason cannot seem to find the right thread for my non orange mute button. I installed drivers from HP for vista and 7 and changed the compatibility to vista service pack 2 but light is still blue. Could somebody please help me? Bugs me that its not working. Oh yea, I have an HP Pavillion DV6000 series special edition. HP Pavilion dv6000 (GA449UA#ABA) Thats my product number.

This is my first notebook. (Really it was my son's christmas present, and it has been malfunctioning ever since. I hae other problems that I cannot fix as well.) I have had several desktops, but never a laptop. I have an hp pavilion dv2035 with quickplay buttons across the top above the keyboard. Itnhas Windows XP. This was refurbsihed through circuit city. As soon as I plug the power cord into the side of the computer, the mute button the the quickplay starts randomly beeping. It mutes and un-mutes on its own. I can't figure out of this is a hardware or software problem. I think it is hardware related. Is there a way I can disable these buttons? I have deleted all of the quick play items from the add remove programs list. I can't find anything else on the computer. Is there something in the bios I can change or disable?

Hi Guys,

For no apparent reason today the quick launch " show desktop " icon on my taskbar has stopped working.
I've installed nothing new, run no new programs, just my typical day at the pc.

If i use the windows key + m it still minimises everything ... but i cant figure out why this button would suddenly stop functioning.

It's hardly disasterous enough to bring my computing life to a crashing halt, but i just hate when something like that happens for no apparent reason.

Anybody got any cles or theories ?

Thanks in advance,

Rob.
