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 bought a new SAMSUNG SM961 M.2 NVMe SSD.

Mr Google on several sites said that a DVD install will fail at the make Partition stage.

I installed from a DVD no problem. The only changes I made in the UEFI was to disable the other drives so as to be sure to install to the SSD.

Hi,Manual: Page 44http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c05270979M.2 2280 SATA SSD is good enough.No M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD slot available. Even if you get the converter and put in PCIe M.2 SSD, it'll only be as good enough as M.2 SATA speeds.http://www.samsung.com/us/computing/memory-storage/solid-state-drives/ssd-850-evo-m-2-500gb-mz-n5e50...Create a recovery USB before any upgrade, using HP recovery manager.RegardsVisruth

Hi,Page 2, 33: http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c05117922.Samsung SM961 NVMe M.2 (2280) SSD would be the fastest available in the market. Are you sure it is TLC, rather than MLC?Your notebook supports SSD 2280 M2 PCIe 3x4SS NVMe TLC TL. I'll not take chances buying MLC. Go for TLC type.http://www.tweaktown.com/reviews/7762/samsung-sm961-1tb-2-nvme-pcie-ssd-review/index.htmlSpecs:http://support.hp.com/us-en/product/HP-Pavilion-15-bc000-Notebook-PC-series/10862166/document/c05178...Remove HDD from its bay, Install your desired operating system in SSD. Make it boot drive. Then replug HDD. Now SSD will be your boot drive and HDD as storage.Be aware that SSD upgrade needs somewhat major disassembly. Hence if you are doing it alone and break something in the process, HP wouldn't honor the warranty. Get help from HP or a good technician for the upgrade. RegardsVisruth

Hi Can i upgrade Hp pavilion 15-bc021tx with SSD SAMSUNG SM961 NVMe PCIe Gen 3 x4 ?And how many read and write it can do ? Thank you.

A:Can i upgrade Hp pavilion 15-bc021tx with SSD SAMSUNG SM961 ...

Yes it is rated to accept an MVME (PCIe) M.2 disk. Look at page 29 of the Manual here: Service Manual The M.2 slot is to the left of the battery.  As far as what kind of read/write speed you will get it is hard to say. The drive is capable of 3000 Mbps read and about 1500 Mbps write, but I have 2 HP laptops with Samsung NVME disks which register about half those speeds and that seems to be the common experience. You do want to install the latest Samsung NVME driver and the device driver from Samsung. After I did that, my speeds went up about 10% and a few people have reported an even bigger improvement. The speeds I get are still well over twice as fast as a SATA SSD so I am very happy with the performance.  If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

Greetings, Yesterday, my game crashed during a match of CS:GO and afterwards, all my games have low FPS. I tried a clean install of windows in the SSD partition (my games are located at the 1 TB HDD), reinstall drivers, battery options, etc. Nothing worked.  The Lenovo Diagnostics Tool reported that everything is working as intended (see report attached). Nevertheless, the FurMark test ran with 6 FPS and all my games are unplayed. In task manager says that the Geforce 1050 is in use, but the memory usage is always low (check one example attached). Please help me, what else can I do to fix this?Ask me if you need more information. Thanks.

Hello, I own a Lenovo Legion Y520 (the one with 2tb HDD) and I would like to add an SSD to it as well. From what I've read, if I want to keep my HDD and add an SSD, I will need an M.2 type SSD. Also, I have found an SSD that I think would be compatible with my Y520, but I wanted to ask here before buying it. The SSD I'm talking about it the SSD WD Black 256GB PCI Express 3.0 x4 M.2 2280. I will also attach a picture of it, so if anyone could tell me if it's compatible, I'll be very thankful.This is the one

My Lenovo Legion Y520 has the following specs - Intel® Core? i5-7300HQ (6M Cache, up to 3.50 GHz), 4GB DDR4, GeForce GTX 1050 2GB.I have The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim in my Steam library so I installed it and the game recommended to play on High so I did. Just to find out that I have around 25-30 FPS? That's worrying me to be fair, I mean if this laptop's not able to run a 2012 game on High at a decent FPS rate (at least 60), then what are the chances I'll get to run newer games like FIFA17/18 or Battlefield 1? I have all the drivers updated. Also added Skyrim in nVidia Control Panel thing so it's running with it.

Hi, ich hab ein Problem mit meinem neuen Laptop. Es handelt sich um den Legion Y520. Er kam ohne Betriebsystem, deswegen habe ich alles selber aufgesetzt. Jetzt habe ich immer wieder Bildruckler. Egal ob beim Gaming oder beim Videos schauen oder beim Scrollen auf Internetseiten. Immer wieder hängt das Bild für eine halbe Sekunde. Die Treiber habe ich alle von der Lenovo-Webseite heruntergeladen. Da es sowohl beim gaming als auch beim normalen Betrieb auftritt und der Laptop hier unterschiedliche Grafikkarten verwendet, denke ich, dass es etwas anderes ist... vll Windows? Hat Jemand eine Lösung für mich? Bin für jeden Hinweiß dankbar.

The compatibility list for SED NVMe support states that the DDPE tools will support SED (OPAL) hardware encryption for the PM961 but I don't see the SM961 listed and I thought the only major difference was TLC vs MLC.  On the 7480 it shouldn't make a difference at 2x, but the write speeds will be much better on the SM series.
Is it compatible?  The performance of the Toshiba XG4 is unacceptable.  The PM961 would get closer, but it'd be best to retrofit an SM961.  Thank you for any help offered.

Hi, I hope I haven't made a mistake, but I just received a Samsung 1TB Polaris SM961 NVMe M.2 80mm Solid State Drive/SSD to upgrade my HP Omen with. The laptop is not seeing the new drive.- The bios is not seeing the drive- Diagnostics saying device not present- I have followed instructions to perform a hard reset. I maybe foolishly believed that because it was mentioned that the 950 pro works, I assumed tha the 961 would work too..But maybe i have received a faulty device ? And tips comments or ideas ?Thanks Nigel
