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.)

Help I am unable to connect my grandmothers computer with the internet at all. Under bad advise she has wiped and reinstalled windows 7 onto her HP ProBook 4440s laptop model number 4440S-LAP and now it is unable to find wifi in the house while other devices in the house are able to connect to the wifi without problems. Upon further inspection of the laptop I found that even when connecting to the LAN it is still unable to connect to the internet and I have come to the belief that it might be the driver. If anyone could help of clarify what the problem may be I would highly appreciate the help

What about PCIe x4 in M.2 format? WIll it works on this laptop?Of course PCIe SSDs has very very faster read/write speed! I would prefer to PCIe ssd from Samsung.I read on this forum that other people used Samsung 850 Pro with MLC 3D V-NAND for this laptop as well. But nothing about PCIe x4.Of course Samsung EVO 850 M.2 (about i wrote upper) should works great because in using sata 3 interface in m.2 format. But what about PCIe x4?  Thanks !

Attempted to up-date to Windows 10. Couldn't do it. Microsoft (MS) Tech tried to do it and couldn't do it. It seems there are some security tools that must be removed as they are incompatable with Windows 10. MS tried to remove and couldn't do it. He said they were on the mother board and when he tried to remove them they just kept coming back so once again he couldn't do it. He said contact HP and they could do it. Unable to find anybody at HP that can do it. As you can see nobody can do it so I guess it just cannot be done. That is unless some fine person out there has discovered a way to do it.

Hi, I'm a field service tech with a frustrating problem.  HP Probook 640 G1, initial customer complaint was that the system will charge battery when turned OFF and plugged in, but system will not charge battery or use wall power when turned ON. Battery and power cable were replaced; no change.  Conclusion at that point was a problem existed between the power cord and power connector on the system board; thus the system board was replaced.  Since then, the laptop will not power up at all, on battery or when plugged into the wall.  Today I replaced the power button board, and got the same symptoms, but noticed that when I press the power button, the battery indicator LED blinks nine times and stops; nothing else happens.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, Got a Probook 470 G1 that doesn't want to power up. The small LED beside the power input socket is flashing constantly on and off (white). I've tried removing the battery and holding down the power key as recommended but to no avail. Also tried powering it up without the battery, but still only get the flashing white led. According to one forum, the flashing white led is a sign of a battery straight out of the factory that needs charged. The laptop was working fine until a couple of days ago.  I inadvertently left it on all day with a powerbank connected to the usb.  I'd thought it was my mobile phone that I'd plugged in. Is it possible that connecting the powerbank had damaged the battery? Any advice would be gratefully received.

About two weeks ago I bought an HP Probook 4710s. Everything was fine until about 2-3 days ago. I was playing a game on my computer when it randomly turned off. I tried powering it back on and it shut off within two seconds. It felt a little hot so I went to bed and it worked fine the next day. The next day I didn't play any games and I was just using it normally, (browser, yahoo and aol messanger) and it shut off again. It didn't feel as hot this time. Finally, this morning I was watching TV and put down laptop to get a drink and when I got back a minute later my computer had shut off. This time it was not very hot at all. I've been googling things but haven't really been able to find any answers. I don't know if it is a hardware issue, or lack of updates of some sort, or If i got a bug that makes my computer think it's overheating and shut down. It's pretty annoying since I JUST got this computer. Any information in the right direction is appreciated.
