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.)

HP Pavilion 15-ab100 Notebook PC series (Touch)
Model # is 15-ab144cy  Serial # is (removed content) and Product ID is 9NE06UA

Notebook was purchased in February 2016 via QVC channel on cable.  (Home Shopping Channel) in US.

A few days ago, the notebook failed to power up.  Not a Windows problem.  It does not get that far. 
 
It would appear this is failing the "power on" test, as there is a series of 3 long beeps, but there is never any video displayed of any kind.  Obviously using the HP Support Assistant is not a viable option.
 
Can you advise where to connect with HP Support or how to address this issue since the notebook is only a few months old???

Hi: I suggest you return the notebook because you will void the warranty if you install the memory yourself. Here is the service manual. Chapter 6 provides the memory removal and replacement procedures to be done by an authorized service center. In short, you have to take almost the entire notebook apart to get to the memory. http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c04427554.pdf

I seem to have a problem with the card reader in my HP dv2188ea laptop.

When i put my sony memory stick into the reader it is shown under windows explorer, and assigned drive letter F - however, if i try to open it it says "please insert disk in drive F".

I have used this card in my laptop before, and all worked just as you would expect then. Although that was a good few months ago.

I did wonder if it was a write protect tab on the card, but doesn't seem to be - that seems to be in the correct position, in fact it doesn't matter what position it is in.

Laptop is running XP MCE Sp2, and is fairly well up to date with windows update (maybe 2 weeks out ish).

HP have suggested reflashing the bios drivers and installing the Card reader drivers, which seemed like a good idea, however didn't make any difference.

Haven't been able to check card in another machine yet (or another card in my laptop for that matter). ALthough the card does work just as you'd expect in my camera.
 

A:Card Reader - HP Pavilion DV2100 series

I just finished chatting with tech support from HP. I was told that it is impossible to make the 9500 series dual boot because it has SATA drives and the "disable SATA" option is not available in the BIOS therefore XP will not recognize the hard drive (because XP has no SATA drivers? he said). He flatly refused to say anything about Linux, HP doesn't support it.
Anybody heard of this?
I want to buy the DV9580 model tomorrow.

Alex

Irven: Please be careful before buying 9500.
Alex: Since the machine is mine I do with it as I please, what you are saying is that even though I fully own the laptop (once I buy it) I am still tied to the agreement between Microsoft and HP? I can't install any operating system I please, Linux, XP or whatever I choose?
Irven: Yes, Alex you are absolutely correct, but down grading the operating system is creatingf lots of problem inthe machine. That's the reason this steps has been taken place. For your notebook's safty.
Alex: what if the hard drive fails?
Irven: You could repalce it,that's not the issue.
Alex: are you allowed to disclose the workaround that restriction? surely you will not want to buy a car if you are told by the manufacturer what brand of gasoline you must use, would you?

A:No dual boot on HP Pavilion DV9500 series

ToshibustM60,

I have the DV9200t and I am booting into Vista x64, Ubuntu Linux, and XP. The problem is similar to yours, and that is if I boot into XP I have to disable the SATA capability in the BIOS and that is a pain each time. I can leave it off all the time but then the drives are not running at full capacity.

I have the latest chipset loaded on. I loaded them after the install. To install I disabled SATA. I am curious if anyone used F6 during Windows install to load the drivers then had luck with SATA enabled?

It is sad HP is taking this course of limiting the OS. Us power users are sought out by friends, peers, management on our opinions. Just think the next time someone ask for our advice on what laptop to go with. I hope HP gets a clue. I have been happy with the laptop other than the multiboot/bios problem.

I bought this pc a week ago but only noticed a couple of days ago that when the machine goes into sleep mode I cant wake it up properly. I thought that it was my wireless mouse at first so changed to the included non-usb one to see what would happen. Ok here is what is going on. The PC is a HP with a Intel® Core™2 CPU 6400 @ 2.13GHz CPU:0, has Japanese Vista Home Premium installed, 4gb ram, NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GS etc. When the PC goes into sleep mode and I try to wake it up, I get the display up just fine, but the mouse indicator is frozen. Sometimes I get that dreaded BSOD and when I try to boot up again it wont. I then have to go back into safe mode (F8) and choose the second alternative which I think reads something like this in English [abondon restore and reboot]. Having gone through that the pc boots up fine. Can somebody please suggest what the problem might be and how to solve it please. I have searched the web somewhat and have seen a post somewhere here that suggested that it may be connected to the graphics card. I have tested the graphics card out and there seems to be no problem there, and the drivers are the very latest.

Thank you in advance.

A:New Hp Pavilion V Series Pc And Sleep Mode Problem

Please post the BSOD information as it will help us to isolate the problem.Where did you get the video drivers from? I generally avoid Windows Update and HP for video drivers - preferring to get them from (in this case) http://www.nVidia.com. Have you tried to roll the drivers back? Have you tried removing the old drivers completely, rebooting, and then installing the newly downloaded nVidia drivers?Is this 32 bit or 64 bit Vista? 32 bit Vista doesn't recognize all 4 gB of RAM (I've got it on 2 systems at home). Although I haven't noticed any significant problems with it, I'm starting to wonder if there's any drawbacks to using too much RAM on these systems.
