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.

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?

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

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

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...

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.

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.

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 TechSupportGuy Fora,

Win7 64bit user here, if that helps.
I recently purchased a Genius F509 Graphics Tablet and it is amazing!
I am currently trying to modify the hotkeys on it using the provided software, MacroKeys Manager.
The way it works is this:

Select a key
Check 'Setting'
Write a descriptive hint
Select a hot key combination or link to a file/program
Click Confirm

Below is an example of a working key in my Custom profile:
My problem is this: The default settings include a hotkey which opens the aero desktop window switcher thingy (Ctrl + Windows key + Tab on a keyboard), and I would like my custom profile to do the same. I have imitated the default profile's settings in my custom profile, but the hotkey does nothing when the custom profile is activated.

Screenshots:
I have looked through the installation disk, and found the default settings file, called windows7.ini in the system32 folder. I checked it and it only contains data pertaining to MacroKey Manager. Looking down the list, I find the data which describes the setup for the pad I am using. This is the only one which sets key #22 to aero window switching.
Code:
[MacroKey_0038_0]
MacroKey1=^N
MacroKeyMode1=1
MacroKeyName1=New
KeyComboIdx1=13
DefaultMacro1=1
MacroKey2=^O
MacroKeyMode2=1
MacroKeyName2=Open

MacroKeyName3=Print

Dratted new laptop  (Lenovo G505) came with Win 8.  I had a Win7 install CD and license key, so I figured why not?
The rest is a bit of a nightmare... Windows installed perfectly, but was missing drivers for some of the USB ports, networking and WiFi.  Found those on the Lenovo site, but even after hunting everywhere, could not find a couple of drivers so things are infuriatingly wonky (as opposed to lovably wonky!). 
The mouse (touchpad) is doing an annoying hover-to-click thing I cannot seem to turn off, but most significantly, the hotkeys are only barely working and I cannot seem to adjust the monitor brightness no matter what I do.  I've got it so the volume (F1-F3) and all function keys are working, but the brightness-up key does NOTHING, while the brightness-down key shows a blank "fuel gauge" indicating that there is NO brightness, while in reality, it's turned up all the way and barely watchable.  :-(
 
Any suggestions for either or all of these woes???
I think it's disgusting how the Microsoft/Lenovo monopolists are still working hand-in-hand to make a system that is dysfunctional without Windows 8.  :-(

Was the Windows 7 installation disc a retail copy or a OEM version?

OK so we (my dad and me & someone else) are repairing a Elitebook  8440p for my dad and i'm wondering Even if the elitebook 8440p doesnt support windows 10 - does it support windows 8/8.1? i'm only asking cause my dad gave me to 2 licenses and was wondering if the elitebook 8440p supports windows 8/8.1 cause then i can give him 1 of the licenses while my lenovo has the other - cause the way i see it - if it doesnt support windows 10 then at least it would support windows 8 or 8.1 lowest so the question - is it offically support or is there a list of supported devices for windows 8/8.1 ???? 













Solved!

A:Does the elitebook 8440p support

Hi: All I can tell you is that there is no official W10 driver support by HP for the 8440p. I have the model that preceeded the 8440p (the 6930p) and it runs W10 just fine. But mine does not have a webcam, and I do not use any of the security features like the fingerprint reader, so I cannot report on those devices. All the drivers are installed though in the device manager, and I used the W7 drivers for whatever W10 didn't install, such as the card reader and HP 3D driveguard.

We just got a few of our first Elitebook 840 G3 laptops.  We have a boot logo we used on our previous G1 and G2 models.  I tried to run it on the new G3 but it returned an error saying it couldn't do it.  Is there a newer version of the eRepLogo utility that will work with the G3?

Hi, I have EliteBook 840 G3 with M.2 SSD by LiteOn (LITEON CV1-8B256). Does that drive support Full Disk Encryption? Somehow this is not explicitly state on neither HP nor LiteOn website. I enabled drive password in boot but I want to know if that password is actually used to encrypt the content.  Not asking about Windows or BitLocker. This is question about hardware support and hardware encyrption only.   Thanks!

Hi,I've a question regarding my laptop laptop HP EliteBook 840 G3. I want to buy the Kensington SD4600P USB-C Universal Dock with Power: https://www.kensington.com/en/za/4491/k38231ww/sd4600p-usbc-universal-dock-with-power#.V_1NJOh94UA   But I want to make sure that it is completely compatible with my laptop. When I checked with Kensington, they said all laptops with a USB-C port that supports USB Alternate (Alt) mode are compatible. From the user manual of my laptop & online search, I could not find out if EliteBook 840 G3 has USB Alternate (Alt) mode. Does anybody know more? Thanks in advance.
