Battery not detected shows up one day so I order a replacement off of ebay.  Same deal with the replacement battery.  Convinced the seller the first was DOA and they sent another.  The 2nd did the same thing.  Wondering if the 3rd party battery is the problem.  Scoured the forums about the issue and tried the usual remedies like hard resets, removal and resinstalling and countless reboots in between.  Still no joy.  looked on HP site for an OEM battery and saw none.  Is there a genuine HP replacement battery available for my model?  If not, I may be out of luck, as I can't seem to get this not detected situation fixed.  So much for portable computing, eh?  Any help would be much appreciated.  Cheers!

I noticed from the following link that the HP Envy 27 All-in-one (2016) has the NVIDIA GTX 950M GPU mounted on a removable board, rather than soldered permanently onto the motherboard: http://h22235.www2.hp.com/hpinfo/globalcitizenship/environment/productdata/Countries/_MultiCountry/d... Is it possible to replace the NVIDIA GTX 950M GPU board with a newer GPU, like the NVIDIA GTX 1050?

I'm trying to downgrade back to 7 Home Premium 64 that was on my laptop originally. I actually have the Windows 7 disc and the drivers disc that came with the PC but no way to load them on to a USB drive since this model has no disc drive. I was able to obtain a 7 Home Premium 64 iso and I crated a bootable usb but cannot get past the driver stage trying to do the install. I found a number of the drivers online from some pretty sketchy sources and loaded them on to another USB, but when I tell Windows 7 to search the other USB it says no drivers found and I know some of them are legit like the ones I downloading directly from Intel etc. I read on a thread for another model where a tech actually created the entire bundle of drivers for someone. Is it possible someone can do this for me? Windows 10 is a disaster.  Model #: A9G89AV Also, I read downgrading this model is rather difficult due to the fact of both SSD and and hard drive  so any advice on that would be great too. Thanks!

So, I just sent back my envy 6t-1000 for the second time today because the left hinge completely broke and I can't even open the laptop. I've had it for a year and 5 days exactly and my warranty expired, so I'm paying all out of pocket for hp to fix it.Back in about October I went on a trip, came back and my laptop had a cracked screen and after talking with hp they told me that any 6t-1000 model for a certain time span had a "defective" hinge kit since these were new ones to accommodate the ultra book style.In the end I don't know why I'm really paying for HP to fix the hinge kit that is defective in the first place. Especially for a $171 due to my warranty being overdue by a measly 5 days. Can anyone offer some advice or tips so I can work with hp? I surely don't want this to be "fixed" and magically 6 months down the road end up having to replace the hinge kit a 3rd time.

I'm afraid I also have the same problem.I noticed this last week as I used to get a cracking noise when I open or close the ultrabook. However, last night when I was about to close I had a crack on the screen and after close examination there was problem with the hinge. I still havn't approched anyone to fix it. The protection plan has expired and not sure what next. Help or suggestions regarding this will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Does this model (from around 2010) have UEFI firmware? I don't see any indication that it does, with Windows reporting that the "BIOS Mode" is "Legacy." I don't see any legacy BIOS emulation switches in the BIOS setup either. But out of paranoia, could it be the case that it does have UEFI firmware, but I've caused it to be permanently in legacy emulation mode or something? Confusingly, the support website offers an enigmatically named "HP BIOS Update UEFI." Could it be that some update (which I haven't been able to install) changes it from one thing to another?

A:Does ENVY 14t-1000 CTO (2010) have UEFI firmware?

Hi @Guest3,  Thank you for joining the HP Forums!  I noticed your post on how you are wondering if your HP ENVY 14t-1000 CTO (2010) have UEFI firmware? I am happy to look into this for you!  According to the Software and Drivers website, it appears there are only drivers for Windows 7. None are showing for UEFI firmware. However, you can try the steps in this guide, Testing for Hardware Failures (Windows 10, 8).  Please remember to return to this thread and mark 'Accept as Solution', if I have successfully helped you resolve the issue.

I was stupid and upgraded to Windows 10 on my laptop.  I have been having a lot of trouble and want to move back to Windows 7, but I've passed the 1 month period where I could have reverted back.  I need a recovery disc for Windows 7.  I went to try to order one, but the order page for HP is giving me an error message (I've tried a bunch of times).   Where can I get this recovery disc or download it?

My Seagate HDD is dying (failed DST, bad sectors) with frequent BSOD, but I have backups.  I would like to replace the 500GB HDD with a 256GB SSD.  I have a retail version of Windows 10 available to install (currently the laptop has Win 7 HP 64-bit).  I don't have an optical drive so I'll first need to create a bootable Win 10 USB stick.   At first, I was going to go the image route and clone the failing HDD (to a similar sized HDD) but all attempts at creating an image using various software (Acronis, Macrium, Windows Backup) have failed with BSOD. I would love to get step-by-step instructions on how to (1) install the SSD, and (2) install Win 10.  Although I have found plenty of instructions on how to replace the HDD, how the new drive would interact with the mSATA SSD and what BIOS settings I need to do, and obtain all the relevant Win 10 drivers is a mystery. Thank you for your help.

Looks like your PC is not tested with windows 10.That does not mean that you cannot install it. However, it does mean that your PC may work with limited functionality. To clean istall windows 10 on the new 256 GB SSD you can read the tutorial belowLink: http://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/1950-windows-10-clean-install.html If your PC has an SSD Cache Drive to accelerate the mechanical Hard Drive, the new SSD will still work with it but, you need to disable cahche first.Also, the cache drive cannot be used with the SSD as an SSD is already fast and you may end up slowing down things.

I purchased my HP Envy on 8/24/2012. About a year later one of the hinges broken and began to pull the screen apart and crack the piece that borders the screen. I spoke with HP about this and they told me these hinges were known to be bad and that they would repair my laptop for FREE. My laptop got fixed and has since had no problems, until this afternoon when A HINGE BROKE and cracked the casing around the screen and now wires are exposed and the frame is torn. It can no longer be closed and is not portable. It happend all at once, I closed my laptop this morning and when I opened it this afternoon, it broke. Anyone have any ideas how to fix it? An online video for repair, where to buy hinges? etc. I called HP and the representative told me that they WOULD NOT repair the piece, even for a charge, because when a lap top is 4 years or older they get rid of the parts to repair them? Seems incredibly odd to me... I am a graduate student about to start the last week of my semester and am incredibly upset that HP appears unwilling to provide support to someone who has faithfully used HP products, especially in the new age of Macbooks.

  I have brought your issue to the attention of an appropriate team within HP. They will likely request information from you in order to look up your case details or product serial number. Please look for a private message from an identified HP contact. Additionally, keep in mind not to publicly post personal information (serial numbers and case details).

Had line issue and the tech came to visit, "you've got a really old modem", and a little voice goes off 'yeah, but works fine and if it's not broken...'.

Anyway, it got replaced with this Bell 1000 wifi modem. Looked fine, but after a while noticed odd hickups when opening multi browsing sessions. Then when gaming, omg long loads.

Did pull full powerdown of the PC, PC couldn't get past the Windows (Win7 32 bit) screen to the password. Forever loading.
I go, 'Oh I know this one', pull the power off the modem, PC boots fine. Games run fine.
Look at event manager, when the modem is running, tons and tons of ATAPI 11 errors. None of those without the modem.

PROBLEM (tl;dr)

Modem switched from old basic model to wifi version (ISP supplied).
With it working, lots and lots of ATAPI 11 errors. PC won't even boot. Pull the power on the modem, everything fine. Once up and running, plug it back in to get net access.
Can use the net, so long as not too many sessions opening it's mostly ok. Do to many, get 20 second system locks.
Don't know what's up (hate these kinda generic errors), thought ATAPI was more HD stuff. No 11 errors with it powered off.

Many thanks.

A:New Bell 1000 wifi modem replacement, causes atapi 11 errors??

You were almost right about ATAPI. Anyway, I can hardly imagine how the modem could even be indirectly responsible for those errors. Copying one of those events and posting it would be a good place to start, but I have a feeling this will be one of those issues that doesn't get solved to any degree of intellectual satisfaction. I found another thread in which one user apparently solved a similar issue by re-connecting a USB device that was disconnected following a power loss. WTF?

A local computer repair shop is the best bet, but for a computer that old, it will probably cost more than it is worth.  Best option is to salvage the data from the hard drive onto a working PC.  Easiest way to do that is to remove the hard drive from the old Pavilion A6400 and connect it to a working PC.  If it is just to retrieve the data, an adapter similar to this will work nicelyhttps://www.amazon.com/AGPtek-Drive-Adapter-Converter-External/dp/B00BIE996S/ref=pd_sim_147_2?_encod...

Last night I tried to replace the mother board on my Dell Inspiron 5000e laptop. I bought the replacement part from an Ebay store, and it is still under warranty (90 days). After taking apart my entire laptop and putting the whole thing back together--a job that took my friend and I three hours--we plugged it in for the moment of truth. The battery light came on, so far so good. Then we hit the power button and...nothing happened. Well almost nothing. The machine appeared to turn on. All three lights on the the bottom of the LCD went on, but that's it. The fan didn't start, the monitor didn't start. The hard drive light was on but didn't appear to be reading at all. (i.e. no blinking or noise.) I'm quite perplexed. Everything appeared to go back together perfectly with the possible exception of the diskette drive cable clip, which we weren't exactly sure whether to put back in over, under, or through the disk drive data cable. We eventually put it through. For instructions and pictures of the process, check out link:


Everything else seemed to go back together seemlessly. We were very careful with screws and put all the right sizes back into their correct places. What could be causing this? Have I received a defective part? Are there any other explanations? I suppose a possible explanation is that the processor and/or video board are not quite connected correctly, but they seemed t...

I have an old Gateway P5-133 computer with an Evergreen MX-Pro 200 cpu upgrade on an American Megatrends system board.
I was in the process of upgrading it with a larger hard drive, WinME, a couple of USB ports, potentially more RAM etc. and was experiencing intermittent episodes of it not booting up. My new machine's monitor, which I used while working on this old POS, was saying there is no video signal coming from the old computer. A new video adapter produced the same message, so I am assuming the system board croaked. It did boot fine following the installation of the new HD and ME.
What would be a suitable replacement if you would be so kind as to enlighten me? I can return the PCI Video and USB adapters but not the Maxtor 80GB Ultra ATA/133 drive and ME.

A:Replacement System Board


Welcome to TSG! As far as a replacement board, you are probably wasting your time. My suggestion would be to keep the video you bought, the hard drive and the floppy. The rest is very outdated. Your board is a socket 5 board with no real replacement out there. The case and power supply will be of no use on a newer board (probably an AT form factor). The evergreen chip will only fit a socket 5 board and you can go much much faster with a low end $30 duron processor. The memory is probably 70ns dram and will not be able to be used in a newer board. Not really much you can save. Your choices are to look at used computer shops for an old socket 5 board or to shell out a couple of bucks for a bare bones system.

However, if you disconnect IDE cables from the motherboard the IDE drives come to life.
If you disconnect power from the motherboard, and hotwire the motherboard power plug, the IDE drives will power up.

Tried motherboard with 3 different power supplies, same problem with all of them. Can't check CPU as don't have any other boards. Memory is fine, or appears to be as changing them made no difference.

Tried the board without any PCI (except agp graphics) cards plugged in, still had the same problem.

Not sure what else to do.

I moved to London from Melbourne Australia and had to get my PC shipped over. I would have taken it on board as hand luggage, but i wasn't allowed, so I had to have it freighted over as excess baggage on another flight.
It had plenty of padding so I thought it would be fine. It looks as though everything was fine except for what appears to be one largish dimple in the cardboard where it looks like it hit something. So there is a possibility of damage.

You will most likely end up replacing everything except the case. Any ATX or mini-ATX board should fit. How many PCI slots do you have now? 3? The power supply should be changed while your at it... Just deside what processor and memory you want to use, and select a motherboard that will run it.

Unfortunately, when booting, I get a prompt for a bitlocker recovery key - and the key I have (confirmed with Microsoft) is not working. The key id shown on the recovery screen is also different. I've spent about 40 minutes on the phone now with Lenovo support, and haven't gotten anywhere - how can I get back into my machine? It would appear that, since the hard drive was not replaced, I should still be able to get in with my existing key, or am I missing something there?

I am UK based, and am happy to fit myself.

Hello, I recently bought a faulty Acer S3-391, that I wanted to fix. The problem was with the iSSD board, as soon as you turned the PC on, the board started overheating, one of the chips was faulty, from measuring the heat, I guess it was either power regulating chip, or the ssd controller chip, the device turned off after about 30-60 seconds after that. Since the price of this board is aproximatelly as high as an entire functional laptop, I dediced not to buy this one, but the similiar one, that had a mSATA slot and integrated wifi, otherwise it looked the same, connectors were also the same and it fitted the notebook nicely, everything went smooth, but I encountered a problem when I turned on the laptop. the battery wasnt charging. I measured the voltages on the battery and of the three cells, each had 0.8V, which means about 2.4V together, missing 8V for total 11.1V as the battery specs say so.I left it recharge over 24hours, but nothing happened, any ideas? Thanks

Was it charging before you replaced the "iSSD board"? If it was, then the board is the problem.Maybe the "wrong" board is causing something to get crossed or shorted.

About a month ago my main board (GA-Z77X-UD3H) started to fail for some odd reason and ive been wanting to replace it since, but now ive beought myself a mini itx RVZ01 case and SFX-L power supply to make a small gaming oriented build and finally replace my motherboard, but i cant seem to make up my mind on which motherboard to buy, having in mind that im running on a gtx 670 and an i5 3570k processor, which is not that powerfull for todays standars, and i dont want to waste a lot of money.

My initial thoughts were on buying this motherboard
Amazon.com: ASUS DDR3 Intel Z77 2400 Socket Motherboard P8Z77-I DELUXE/WD: Computers & Accessories

but then again ive found a lot of cheap options like this
Amazon.com: ASUS P8H61-I R2.0 LGA 1155 Intel H61 HDMI USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard: Computers & Accessories

My main concern is that the cheap alternatives wont keep up with the gpu and cpu and i dont plan on making any serious upgrades since i would have to replace the entire pc components for it to be worth the huge next gen investment. (EDIT) Ill post my original specs somewhere; not using win 7 anymore btw.

So my question is: Any suggestions? What should i buy? (having in mind that im using an 1155lga cpu and a mini itx case) Im looking for anything under 200$ but when it comes to choosing i simply cant make up my mind and would really appreciate some help.

A:Need suggestions on a Mini ITX 1155 board replacement.

I just bought and installed the Asus P8H61-I R2.0 board to build a new system using some old parts I had lying around (an i3-2100 cpu and 4GB of DDR3 memory.
It is very impressive board, and Asus has an excellent reputation.

One thing about this MB, it only has one expansion slot (a PCIe x16) so you can add your graphics card if you want but that's it.

Hello all!
I just recently brought my laptop in to be looked at/repaired. The local technician told me that my laptop system board died due to the Windows 10 updates not playing nice with my old Windows 7 operating system (originally, my laptop had Windows 7 Home, last July I upgraded to Windows 10). I have started to look for a new replacement system board, however I have a few questions. I looked at the service manual for my laptop and can't figure out which replacement system board is adaquate/what they all mean. The serial number of my current system board in my laptop  is 720566-001. I googled this system board number and keep finding results with 720566-501 and 720566-001 in the title for the same system board. Most boards I find on eBay also have the number as 720566-501. My question is this: Will I be able to use a 720566-501 system board to replace my current 720566-001 system board? 
Additional details:
-12 GB RAM
-Intel I7 2.2 Ghz processor
-1 TB SATA Hard Drive 
-GeForce Graphics Card (not sure which type)
[Personal information removed]
-Product No. E1P05AV

Welcome to the forum!
GPU is soldered, meaning your're right about needing to swap the complete motherboard. You can download the HMM (Hardware Maintenance Manual) from here: click me!
Good luck with the swap!

Hello all , I'm new here , almost as new at poking around inside my computer , at this point its nothing lost nothing gained ..... I have read several hundred posts of others who also fell victim to these substandard machines ..

A:Unknowing victim of emachine, board replacement, socket 754/478

Dude, get a grip. I know less about computers now than before I read your post.

I thought that socket 478 was Intel (Pentium Celeron), now I come to find out that it's AMD.

An AMD Sempron 3000 only comes in one speed, if it's another speed, then it has a different number.

All of the s*** you mention is beyond obsolete, so maybe it's time for a whole 'nuther computer. Please, I heartily suggest that you avoid attempting to build a machine, at least in your current state of mind.

I don't think that any of us here are really equipped to deal with the anxiety, angst, or incoherent and rambling thought patterns you have exhibited thus far, let alone what you're trying to pass off as sentence structure.

BTW, my Emachines T-5026 just reached its 5th birthday. If you'd like to check in and wish it many happy returns, (pun not intended), here's the link; http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic143315.html

I would argue that it is not really possible to be an "unknowing victim" of Emachines.

You bought it because it was cheap, cheap s*** breaks. So where's the surprise, the mystery, or the unpredictability?

Hi guys, I have got a system board damage, so I need to exchange it. I have never done it before, so I'm struggling with findings of correct part for exchanging to. As far as I understood FRU number of the system board is what I need. I have found one which says 04x5166 right next to the RAM slot. Is it the only reference I need to use to find a right part? I have found a part on eBay, where in description it is written 04x5166 and three different numbers. You think this one should fit? https://m.ebay.com/itm/QTY-1x-Lenovo-Thinkpad-X240-laptop-motherboard-intel-i7-4600U-VIUX1-NM-A091-/... I would really like to try to repair my old friend first before going for an expensive new machine  lookign forward to hear from you! Anton

I am trying to find a replacement graphics card/board that will fit into a HP Slimline Pavillion Computer.  It currently has a NIVIDIA Geforce G210 graphics card with DVI and HDMI only.  The card is workign fine but hte fan on the card makes alot of noise.  So I am afraid it is going to go out.  I can't find an exact match anywhere and trying to figure out one that will fit back in this slimline case.  Here is the information on the current card:  ZOTAC 210 Synenergy Edition 512MB 64 Bit DDR2.  Part Number 288-10N44-240ZT.
