Elitebook 8560w suddenly very laggy.

Q: Elitebook 8560w suddenly very laggy.

I have an Elitebook 8560w with Windows 10 64 bit, 500gb PNY SSD, 8GB ram. I noticed it first onFacebook, firefox would freeze when I played any video. My GoPro Stodio was also very laggy. I did a complete restore... a fresh installation of Windows 10 64bit and reinstalled the drivers for my Quadro 1000m. I am stillhaving the same issues. I'm not much of a gamer so I haven't tested it on any games, but most video is terrible. Is it possible that there is a hardware issue? Any recommended diagnostic programs? Could I have the wrong drivers installed? I installed the latest drivers from the NVIDIA website. Please help! Thanks, Russ

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?

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.

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.?

Hi: You may find the actual service manual of more help. It provides detailed instructions on how to install the memory and remove the various parts to get to the memory module under the keyboard. See chapter 4 http://bizsupport1.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c02844491/c02844491.pdf Paul

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.

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 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". If I start the laptop with a battery and the charger, it will say "xx% and in use". I have tried updating the bios to VERSION: F.28 because I found an article that w... Read more

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...

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 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...

I have an Acer Aspire 4810t, its a laptop built to be light and have a long battery so I don't expect it to be fast but it works well enough for my needs. However since yesterday it has been playing up something terrible!
Can't really put my finger on it but everything seems slow as hell, I'm only browsing the internet and even that is sometimes lagging up, and constantly giving me errors that scripts are not working do I want to continue. Also opening programs like photoshop is taking forever, and even just adjusting brightness using keyboard shortcuts had some problems when I first booted it up.
I ran a software called Performance test by passmark, but it just told me that it was slow (something I already knew, duh!) and nothing about what might be causing this. Or maybe I'm just a bit too much of a newbie to understand it
 
Does anyone have any ideas? Really, it was working perfectly until yesterday and I haven't made any major changes to the system.
 
My specs are:
OS: Windows 8
BIOS: InsydeH2O Version V2.31

Nothing I have been able to do has helped the recent lag

Any ideas ?
 

A:Windows 2000 suddenly laggy

Just a thought,but have you thought about disabling startup items that you don't need to start on bootup.Having too much stuff in there can slow your system down dramatically.The only things I allow to start on bootup on my machine are my anti virus and firewall.

Also go here:http://www.blackviper.com/WinXP/servicecfg.htm
and check out the service configurations,there are a lot of services that you can disable to help your system run better and faster

I have had the Folio G1 for about 6 months.  I have personally loaded (and reloaded) the OS image twice and personally installed every possible driver directly from the HP website.  However, I still have a major problem that at least once a day the UI simply freezes.  Right where its at.  No warning.  It just hangs.  I live in mortal fear of this happening during a presentation because it takes me five minutes to recover.  I simply find this unacceptable. 1)  I am driving two external monitors (Z24n hp monitors).  2) I'm using a hp elite usb-c docking station (powered).  This things runs hot too but I don't think its the problem3) I have tried to keep this little guy cool but elevating it to get airflow underneath, and I leave the lid open as well.4) I am using a wired LAN connection  through the dock  Nothin seems to helps.  I am really losing confidence in my computer yet I can't afford (Iiterally) to buy a new one.   Any suggestions would certainly be appreciated.

Hello, thanks for taking your time to read my post.

My laptop has become increasingly slow, and my internet browser freezes, lags, shuts down etc.....

I followed all steps in this thread.... http://www.techsupportforum.com/f284...ow-532075.html .... but it's still slow.

I feel it runs deeper than just malware/viruses, but I'll leave that up to you experts to discover. The reason I think it's deeper that that is because I received a call from "Windows" saying I'd downloaded something malicious. I didn't trust these people so I done a google on it and turns out it's a scam of some sort. I won't post links but if you feel the need then google "Just got a call from Windows" or "Just got a call from Microsoft".
Anyway, the folders they got me to look into a lot of the stuff had Errors or exclamation marks on them.
If you want I'd be happy for someone here to have a look using team viewer to see if I have a big problem.

Anyway, here are the logs etc that are required according to the sticky...
(I zipped the files as it said, but it still looked like a winrar folder, so if it's wrong I'll try again)

Thanks again.

Hello, I want to upgrade my 8560w (dual) system board (with cpu i7 2620M and 2 RAM slots) to a quadcore system board with 4 RAM slots and a quadcore i7. Is it possible from a technical point view? or is there some components that remain outside the system board and do not allow to make such an upgrade ? The manual mix all possible configurations together and does not precisely say the possible upgrades starting from a specific configuration.. Many thanks in advance, Yassine

A:system board upgrade 8560w

The system boards are a drop in replacement for each other. This is the one you want: For use with quad-core processors in all countries except China and Ukraine 652638-001 You will also obviously need a Quad Core processor. You can move all the add-ons over from the old board to the new. Memory, video card, wireless, display cable, etc. Even the processor heatsink is part of the video card cooling system. It is the same on dual core and quad core boards.  This is no easy task, by the way. There are lots of connecting daughterboards and subassemblies.  Your Service Manual System board on eBay If you can do the work yourself, it is $115 for the board and then about $200 for the CPU: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Intel-Core-i7-2860QM-Quad-Core-3-60GHz-5-00GT-s-DMI-8MB-L3-Cache-SR02X-/121678932308?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item1c54a12954 $315 might be a working economic proposition on a $2000+ laptop. If you were paying me to do it I would not touch it for less than about $3-400 in labor. Looks like an all-day job. The Manual is not designed for upgraders. It is made for technicians who remove and replace like-kind parts only. Officially, there are no upgrades, it is a bit of a gray art. If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

Hello,I have problem with Windows 10 on my HP 8560w. As far as I can see, there are still no drivers from HP to HP 8560w...In the beginning I installed a bit older version of Windows 10 and it worked for some time well, when one Windows Update finally caused infinite loop of blue screen sayign 'Inaccessible Boot Device'. The same thing happens when I try to intall clear, latest version of Windows 10, during installation blue screen is shown and nothing can be done. I read that some people use Windows 10 on HP 8560w but how can it be done?By the way, Why there are no still official drivers from HP for W10. Could anyone help?

A:Make Windows 10 work on HP 8560w

Hello @marmal102 Welcome to the HP Support forum. There are no official drivers because HP hasn't released them - your model is too old and was released long time before Windows 10 was released in public. Your PC officially supports XP, Vista, 7 and 8/8.1Without the vendor support and the official drivers, there is no guarantee of proper support. Additionally, with the Win 10 update policy when Microsoft decides what and when to change, there is no guarantee it will work now and after 3 months, for example. I strongly recommend you choose a supported operating system for your device such as Windows 7 or 8.1 - both are still supported by Microsoft, they are stable and a good choice. 10 reasons not to choose Windows 10:>> http://www.pcworld.com/article/3092365/windows/10-reasons-why-you-shouldnt-upgrade-to-windows-10.htm...>> http://www.infoworld.com/article/2972298/microsoft-windows/10-reasons-you-shouldnt-upgrade-to-window...  Cheers
