Pavilion x2 detachable freezing-won't let me fix

Q: Pavilion x2 detachable freezing-won't let me fix

Last night turned on to find it saying it was installing updates. Since then when turned on freezes but won't let me open or fix anything. Keep having to turn it off and on. No joy. Sometimes opens a blue screen. Message reads 'windows hasn't loaded correctly'. Option to reset won't work as says I need additional free space on the drive but can't open drive to do so. Start up repair can't diagnose a problem. Won't let me perform a system restore and won't let me create a restore point. Don't have a disc to use. Cannot open files or access internet on desktop. Completely stuck. Please help.

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.)

I have an HP Paviion x2 detachable device with two ports - USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 type C. The charger is connected to the last port. A. My question is, due to the lack of more ports, is it possible to connect a USB 3.0 type C hub to the USB 3.0 port (instead of the charger)?B. If yes, will it be still possible to charge the computer via the hub?  C. Assuming that it is a "Yes" for question A, which hubs are recommended? Best Regards,Tal Barak.

Hi this is my first post. Had this 2 in one for about a week, replacing a 4 year old acer aspire one netbook D270 which had upgraded SSD and over 8 hr battery life. I dropped it and cracked the screen but it was a great little device I used all the time. There is a lot to like with this unit, but a few things are a little fustrating. 1) Lost thunderbird and opera from taskbar for no apparent reason. I pin something I expect it to stay.2) I keep on deleting the HP help from taskbar as it keeps on showing a massive ? on the task bar but no new info, but afrer reboot its back showing help but nothing new. I dont want it.3) Inconsistent when I undock screen, I loose all input on the touch screen? Dock it back all is fine. This cant be right.4) Open some webpages no touch screen?.5)  I Keep on loosing SD card, even during playing music, suddenly stops and no SD. Pop it out and it makes unmounts noise, pop it back in all is fine for a short time like 2 songs then stops again saying file can not be found. Replaced the SD card and same issues.Are these known issues or something with my device. Jas

I have just bought this lkaptop and the hardware is nice, but I do not want to run Windows. Simple, I thought, as it's a PC, I'll just install Ubuntu. Well, the boot from USB is UEFI and that is a bit of a pain to set up, and I can't get it to work. The Ubuntu 14 install disk I burnt is an EFI boot CD and it simply fails to boot. Using the F9 option I get aBoot device failed message in white text on a blue screen. When I try to boot through the boot menus I get a missing file at \ubuntu\winboot\. I have just created a Windows recovery disk and that seems to boot fine. It looks like the BIOS/UEFI is set up to only allow Windows to boot. I've bought a USB DVD drive and failed to boot from that, also two memory sticks and a HDD. So, questions, before I put the laptop in the bin: 1. Has anyone else got Linux onto this device and if so what image and procedure did you use to get the install to work? 2 Is there a way to get legacy mode booting set up in the BIOS (The BIOS mentions legacy support in the screens but its not there).  Andrew 

A:Linux on HP Pavilion x2 detachable PC 10

It seems that the hp x2 has a 32 bit uefi. So you'll need a 32bit uefi boot loader. Most distros I've seen just ship the 64 bit bootloader. There's a guy at debian who is trying to support this kind of thing - He's working on a netinst image for deb8. The current image he's published so far boots, but I can't get networking to work. Here's his blog (other good stuff there):http://blog.einval.com/debian/CDs Here's the deb image:http://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/unofficial/efi-development/jessie-upload3.Hth /markus

Hi there @bfeliciano86,  Before I provide troubleshooting documentation, I would like to take a minute to welcome you to the HP Support Community, where you can ask questions, find solutions and get help from others! I will do my absolute best to help you resolve the issue you are having with the black screen on your HP Pavilion x2 Notebook PC.  Note: please make sure that the AC adapter cable is not plugged into a power strip, surge protector, or secondary power source. It should be directly into a wall outlet. Please note remove any and all USB devices. Disconnect all non-essential devices, as these could cause some issues. As silly as it sounds, did you happen to try removing dust from the cooling areas in a notebook?Have you connected the Notebook to an external monitor or TV? If you remove the notebook battery, plug the AC power cable back into the notebook, then turn it on, does it power the Notebook? Do you have any beep codes or blinking LED lights? Have you done a BIOS reset?Have you tried performing a hard reset?Have you tried to see if you can test for hardware failures? If the computer is on, do you hear the fan running? If so, but the display remains blank, please see Computer Starts but Screen Remains Blank. If you require further assistance, I would be more than happy to help!

I purchased my laptop on 11/6/15 from Best Buy. When it is plugged in, it works fine but the battery was not charging. Unfortunately for me, it is now 1 1/2 months out of warranty. I brought it into Best Buy to have the battery replaced and it was sent to their servicing center. I just received a call from them telling me that my issue is Not my battery but with something on the motherboard that controls how the battery charges and the entire board needs to be replaced and it is going to cost me just as much to replace it as I paid for my laptop. This is absolutely obsurd!! The laptop is only 13 months old and has never been mishandled. When making the decision to buy a new laptop, I chose HP because I had such good luck with my old one that was 10 years old. Has HP quality gone downhill? And on top of it all, when I went to submit a question about this to HP support, it comes up with my laptop being out of warranty since August 2016 which less than a 1 year warranty. Now Im left with the decision to repair my 13 month old laptop and still have no protection if something else breaks or buy a new one with protection for the same price.

Hello @Yool, Welcome to the HP Forums, I hope you enjoy your experience!  I have read your post on how your notebook computer is not able to power on, even though it is plugged into the AC adapter, and I would be happy to assist you in this matter! If your computer is powering on, but there is no lights illuminating on the device, I recommend following this document on Computer Starts but Screen Remains Blank (Windows 8). Should the machine not respond at all when the button is pressed, I alternatively suggest this document: Computer does not start (Windows 8). This should help restore the display to your notebook computer. If the issue persists, please call our technical support at 800-474-6836.

My pavilion is not respoinding properly. 1 month ago, the laptop/tablet locked after a hardware issue and needed a bitlocker key to open it. After some time finding it and a few problems from microsoft, the laptop was in working order as of yesterday. However, the audio was missing (I assume that's why the laptop locked itself?? I'm not a large techy person!). As I could not restore the audio, I decided to do a reset with files still intact. This got to 44% and then came up with a response along the lines of; "Cannot reset due to an issue. Please try again later." This led me back to two options; revert back and load windows 10 or to retry. I retried a few more times with the same error message and two options. I'd decided after that not working, I'd try and revert back and reload windows 10. After this, the only thing my laptop now does is load the HP symbol, move to a black screen and repeat. I've tried hard resets and attempting to diagnose the problem with F2, yet this did not help at all as all 'passed' bar the audio which could not be detected. Any help would be great! Thanks.

I recently bought a HP x2 12-b017ca. Laptop works great and didn't have any issues until now. I ordered a HP Active Pen from HP which listed my computer as compatible. Once I received it, tried it, didn't work. So after some troubleshooting I called HP Support.  After spending 2+ hours of getting transfered alot and disconnected I eventually got a person that told me it wasn't compatible but it clearly states on the HP website it is. Therefore he told me to call another number to confirm if it was compatible.  During my time on hold? I was able to get the pen to work however it was very glitchy, skipping and sometimes it wouldn't recognize it at all. I tried calibrating the pen, checked for updates, etc. with no success. So call the number and they stated it was compatable and it sounded like this was a more common problem with this pen so I returned it.  I purchased a Dell Active pen, it works better than the HP but not great. Still glitchy and skipping. I'm not sure if there is something broken the laptop or just a poor design/bug which affects all units. The touch screen works great with no issues at all, even works flawlessly with my Adonit Jot Pro pen. Is there anything I can do my self (lose connection, update, etc.)? I prefer not to spend 2+ hours with phone support and if I have to send in I'm out a laptop for a month or more.

It'll usually drain 3-4%/day while shutdown and keyboard dock attached.The battery does not drain (across 24h) while shutdown/detached or while the charger is plugged in. I'd like to find out if anyone knows how to disable power to the dock while shutdown.I promise that I am shutting down the computer and not hibernating, sleeping, etc. Relevant details:Windows 10 64-bitBIOS F-16 (and unable to find any options in BIOS)Fast boot IS disabledHP Battery utility and diagnostics shows normal battery (other diagnostics normal as well) Any thoughts? I've probed around the Device Manager and BIOS, but to no avail.

I have been having issues for the system freezing up at random times since I bought this computer.. It will sometimes run for hours with no problems and others will freeze up within minutes of being used. all we do with this computer is surf the web and stream music. It never freezes up on any particular site or during any particular time. I have tried to have it looked at and it never seems to get better always the same problem.  After reading up on the web this seems to be a common problem for this computer from HP. Can you please tell me how tro resolve this? I have tried to reset it back to the original time and different dates but because this has been a problem from the start it does not change anything! Mike Wand

The operating system is windows 8.1, I'm unsure of the bit size. The first thing that happened was the screen kept going black, I sent it off and it got fix, was never told what was wrong with it. A few months later it started to freeze up after being on it for a few minutes, I can shut it down and restart it and it does the same thing.

Hello,

I have a HP Pavilion laptop, out of warranty and I don't have the discs.

2 days ago I installed norton antivirus and ran a full scan. It said 1 issue found, then switched itself off. Since then it freezes as soon as I turn it on, on the Hp screen with the little circle.

I have tried switching on and pressing escape which gives me 5 options, F1 system info, F2 system diagnostics, F9 boot device options, f10 bios setup, F11 system recovery. I have run diagnostic tests and found hard drive short dst failure (qcxf7k-71d856-mfpwxa-60tm03) System recovery will not work

I would like to restore to an earlier date prior to installing norton but can't seem to do that from this screen, there is no F8 available. Any suggestions? Do I need a new hard drive? Thank you

Please help!

My computer has started to crash in the last 2 weeks, and in fact in the last few days it has gotten terrible. I am even having trouble booting up now, and decided I needed some expert advise before I made something worse.

I first noticed the trouble a few weeks ago whilst browsing the internet. The computer just froze and I manually switched it off since I couldn?t even access the task manager. I?ve owned the computer from new since July 2004 and have had very few problems with it.

From browsing the message boards I notice that there?s certain info needed in order to render an opinion on these things, so here goes:

Motherboard Make & Model: Hewlett Packard Pavilion zv5000

CPU Make and Model: Intel Celeron, 2800 mhz (28x100)

Hard Drive make and model: Toshiba MK4025GAS (40Gb, 42000RPM, Ultra-ATA/100)

RAM: 2x256mb

Graphics Card Make and Model: ATI Mobility Radeon 9000/9100 IGP (RS300M)

Soundcard make and model: SoundMax Digital Audio

Operating system& version: Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition

Description of problem:

The computer freezes (this has been whilst browsing the internet, playing dvd?s, and most recently whilst running a Windows program that was supposed to locate any disk errors on the hard drive) and then eventually switches to a blue screen with a long error message. The following is one message that I have seen several times:

?A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to p... Read more

Good job on providing those details, here's another thing I'd want to know before venturing a guess. What does the event viewer say?

Its in the control panels, administrative tools, computer management, event viewer under system tools. Check out the application, security, and system logs. Post back with any errors that occured around the time of the freezes.

Hello

So in the last few days, my laptop has been freezing pretty bad. Ctrl Alt Delete doesn't bring up task manager or anything. I have let it sit for awhile to see if it comes out but no such luck. It will freeze at any moment, whether it is sitting on the desktop or running chrome, there doesn't seem to be anything that causes it. I thought it may be a virus but avast didn't find anything so I ran a factory restore thinking that might help but it didn't.

Anyways any help would be great

Thanks

Jake

Hey guys, I'm having problems with my HP Pavilion freezing up, and I'm not sure what's wrong with it.
At first I thought it might be my audio driver(because after about 10 or so minutes of listening to music via my computer, it would freeze), so I went to the HP website and downloaded an audio driver update for the Windows XP operating system. I restarted the computer, and opened the 5 main windows and websites that I go to(in the IE web browser): www.kongregate.com; www.facebook.com; www.youtube.com; www.yahoo.com; and the accessorie Paint. After about 30 minutes, it froze once again.

My friend said it might be my web browser, but I have no way of downloading another web browser to see, because my Grandmother won't let me download another browser. Now, I don't know if this will help, but I thought describing the way it freezes would.
Whenever it freezes, it makes a strange beep noise, then these weird lines appear over words and such. (It's kind of hard to explain, all I can really say is something weird goes on with the appearence of everything) my mouse will not move, and Ctrl+Alt+Dlt does not work. I end up having to hold the power button on the computer down, and force shut down.

Hello! I have a HP Pavilion Notebook 17-f150nm and the problem with my computer is that it keeps freezing and crashing each day. This has been going on for about half a year and it occurs randomy no matter what I do. Either if im watching a movie, listening to music or dont do anything it just freezes and it does not unfreeze. Everytime this happens I have to restart my laptop nothing else helps... and when I turn it on I don't get any error message whatsoever. Occasionally i get this "blue screen" thing.  It says: "Stop code: DRIVER POWER STATE FAILURE"  P.S Sorry for bad english

I recently just purchased a HP Pavilion x360 11-k101na and on the first day of using it, it restarted by itself twice due to some sort of problem, and it froze once and I couldn't get it to work. I had to hold down to power button to shut it down which I hate doing and upon turning it back on, it just wouldn't. This is only the first day of usage and I'm afriad something is wrong with it. Just wondering if anyone else had these problems or how they can be fixed, or what's even causing them?

A:Pavilion x360 restarting by itself and freezing

If it is brand new and doing this I would call HP Warranty or better yet take it back to where you bought it if you have that option. It is rare, but not impossible to get a laptop with a bad hard drive right out of the box. This will just continue to cause troubles for you.

This laptop running win7 was working fine, the kid deleted some file then it immediately it froze, after that he manually powered down then restarted, it went to the net then shortly after it froze again. Upon restarting it froze on the windows logo, after restarting it it froze again at the windows logo but this time the screen went black. Upon restarting this time it showed Startup repair as an option so I chose that and it gave the system restore option which I chose.
After it restarted and went back to windows, same deal as mentioned above but what was different this time, suspecting virus issue, installed Mbam but when mban was opening up looks like Avast blocked it and froze, this happened 2 times so after going through the system restore process again, this time I uninstalled Avast and the system restarted but got stuck on windows logo. Seems like this unit is going through the same processes in sequence? Any ideas guys?
