Upgraded to windows 10 and now unable to use convenient features I've had for years. My touchpad is disabled, so can't just tap the pad to select what I want; my DigitalPersona fingerprint is disabled and in trying to enable it again, it appears to want to trick me to permanently delete my saved fingerprint. How can I get these features back. Thanks.More replies
Just curious if anyone has tried or been successful with an upgrade from Win 7 to 10 on these old Touchsmart desktops. The hardware qualifies to make the upgrade, but as HP has noted that it has not developed/tested any new drivers for Win 10. I actually tried the upgrade before the July 29 deadline because MS "check my PC" said it was good to go. Don't know why I didn't check HP site to verify, even though I didnt find an answer easily. Anyway, it got locked up with a install failure but then could not restore to previous Windows either. I actually had problems with an earlier Win7 update which I think screwed up registry keys and had to be reinstalled after a fix--shut down was never quite the same. So, I think THAT may have been the reason why the upgrade install failed. I also forgot to shut down my antivirus program before installation which I've read can screw it up. My PC was down for 5 days while I tried to restore, reboot, reinstall, and even got Microsoft phone help for 5 hours intermittently and remotely via a working netbook. It really was a mess, not booting up, and when it did, it would stutter, delay, then freeze. Repair disk and USB drives would freeze during loading. Seemed to get different error messages that would force restart and then stall. MS help gave up when I got an error message that implied that there was a hardware failure. I can't remember the code but that's what they claimed. Suggested I contact HP for assist. On my own as a last... Read moreMore replies
It's been a while since I bought the HP Touchsmart 600-1350. Recently I took it out and restore it to its oringinal state. However, It's still kind of slow so I decide to do a little research about upgrading this fossil. So far, I noticed that the i3 m370 cpu @2.40GHz can be upgraded, so does RAM (4GB to 8GB with Win 7 64 bit). What about the graphics? This HP Touchsmart 600-1350 has a intel HD graphic which has only 64MB. I saw a lot people are saying that GT 230M can be installed since there is a PCIe (MXM 2.0) socket available. Is that true? do I need to install cooling as well, or just plug it in and play? Is there any other model of graphic cards that are compatible? ThanksMore replies

Anyways, I have an HP Touchsmart IQ770 (the very first modle I think...) and I was just wondering if anyone knows if there is a way to upgrade the nvidia graphics card in it. The graphics card is a Nvidia Geforce Go 7600.
I got this computer (Which I LOVE!) about a year and a half ago and Nvidia has jumped fast from 7600 to 9800 and over and games are getting bigger and stronger so hopelly there is a way or I'm going to be stuck...
Thanks for any info!
AFAIK, there's absolutely no way to do that.
I've seen the taken apart, and from where I was sitting, I didn't see how it could be done.
I'd like to upgrade because it no longer functions but I do like the all in one form. Are there HP or aftermarket motherboards that will fit and match I/O openings? Any and all help is much appreciated.More replies

Can you upgrade the graphics card in an IQ506. I want to get something that is compatible for windows 8 and touch but I dont know what or if I can. I have the Nvidia 9300M GS that came with my IQ506 and it doesnt allow the touch screen to work even with the latest driver. I had to load the 9300 and not the 9300M because the Nvidia driver doesnt recognize the 9300M as the correct hardware for for it. Touch works fine if I disable the graphics card but games are very very choppy.

This laptop currently has a Mobile DualCore Intel Core i3-3130M, 2566 MHz processor and I am looking to upgrade it to the Intel Core i7-4702MQ 2.20 GHz processor (Spares# 723522-001). It is listed in the service manual however I am unsure as to if the System Board will support it.

(model: 23-k001hk All-in-One) Hello all--Asking advice/suggestions of wise and kind persons on the better path---and the how-to--for upgrading the speed of my current 1TB hdisk + 16GB SSD cache HP storage scheme by one of these routes: 1) Upgrade the installed 16GB mSATA SSD cache drive to an 64GB mSATA drive (Intel RST limit) why: I regularly update a big whack (10-15GB) of data from the office, so given that the daily volume of modified files is comparable to 16GB, I'm assuming that a bigger cache would actually add value 2) install a "large" SSD drive to serve as the the primary boot drive by replacing the existing 1TB hdisk (I'm using a tiny fraction of this) with an SSD 2.5" drive with a suitable bracket (and removing or disabling the 16GB SSD cache drive) Thanks in advance for any advice on this, as HP does not seem to have any public information on this, nor any obvious means of accessing or examining the RST (firmware?) settings used in their SSDcache+hDisk arrangement (yes, tried Ctrl-I on boot, etc.--no joy). --Rob in Hong Kong
Hi WAWood, A late thanks for your advice. Based on this feedback, and on having just discovered that the "hidden" ExpressCache software on my system quietly stopped working after upgrading to Windows 10 (and HP support does not currently seem to have updated ExpressCache software for Windows 10), I decided to install a large SSD drive and use it as the boot drive. In case it might help other HP Envy Recline All-In-One owners, here is a summary of the steps that worked, with the obvious disclaimers that while this worked for me, it is not a "universal" solution, and also that if you mess with the hardware/software of your system, you are of course on your own, with no guarantees or responsibility from this author): (also apologies for format--in a hurry) System: HP Envy Recline (model 23-k001h) running Windows 10Basic goal: Modify original storage setup: 1TB hdisk(boot drive) + 16GB mSATA SSD cache("tied" to hdisk via ExpressCache) to: 1TB hdisk(spare drive) + new Samsung Evo 850 500GB mSATA SSD drive (as boot drive)Result Much, much "zippier" system: fast boot, app launching, etc. Steps &nbs...

My question: Is the TouchSmart tm2 compatible with WIN 10 and what must be accomplished to achieve a successful install? First, a slignt rant.I was successfuly running WIN 10 on my TouchSmart tm2 when I updated a video driver and afterwards could only get a blank screen. Yes, my bad! I paid HP $99 for incident support and their only suggestion was to do a full system recovery & reinstall WIN 7 Pro. Really? You made me pay for that? Since I didn't have the OS disks (it was OEM) I had to pay HP $25 for the media and $15 FOR SECOND DAY DELIVERY ONLY TO HAVE THE MEDIA ARRIVE ON DAY 3. I can't reach anyone at HP to refund the delivery failure. Now support is stating that my computer isn't compatible with WIN 10. If I was successfully running WIN 10, why is it now un compatable?
I have just sent you a private message. If you are not sure how to check your forum messages, this post has instructions.3 more replies

Hello, i have a HP TouchSmart computer that i need to reformat badly. I am wondering if reformatting it with any regular vista CD key will lose such features as the touchscreen, wireless mouse & keyboard, built in webcam.
The Original owner of the computer claims it came with its own Vista CD key that he lost.
If the HP restore partition is in good condition (not damaged or malware-ridden), you can perform a re-write of the factory-original hard-disk-image by tapping the F11 as your HP is first powered on, then following the prompts as shown (step-by-step, with screenshots) in the following instructions at the HP support website --- http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/d...=3752240#N1066
Note that you'd first want to move any data that you wish to save off to removable or external media before you run a return to factory original.
Once the factory-original image is restored, you'll have to visit Windows Update to get the Security Updates since the TouchSmart was shipped. You'll want to update the Security software as well (if you need a free alternative, I think "avast! antivirus" is a good choice).
Once the PC is updated and fully protected against malware, you can then create a recovery disk set onto DVDs following the instructions from this HP support webpage --- http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/d...name=c00882383
Having made your own Recovery DVD set allows you the freedom of running the recovery onto a new, blank drive - should you need or wish to upgrade to a new hard drive in the future.
You can, of course, also order Recovery DVDs directly from HP for most models. The price is considerably less than purchasing a Windows license retail. Much less.
Best of luck

Screen Is Blank After Starting Computer
ok guys i really need some help/guidance here. There is so much infomation here that im sincerely overwhelmed... I will give you as much information as I have and hope SOMEONE can help! First, I hope i selected the correct board to write this in. As stated, I have a pavilion touchsmart23 all in one pc. I am NOT at ALL computer saavy so work with me here. I dont know if its 32 bit or not nor do I know if it is imperative to my issue. Here is my problem. My computer works fine 70% of the time. Suddenly the screen will go black and give me a disk boot error message. I cant remember word for word but this is what it saYS: "no boot disk has been detected or boot disk has failed". When this happenes, I have to disconnect the computer from the wall and reconnect and start over. This always fixes it so it leads me to believe it is some sort of glitch. I called HP and they told me to run a system quick and extensive check on the hard drive which i have done. Both passed and no errors reported. Another thing that will happen is that the screen will go dark, (typically after idling and when i return and move the mouse or type on keyboard, the screen never lights up again as its supposed to when it is no longer idling. It stays VERY dark and I can barely makeout the screen. I am not sure why this is happening nor do I know what steps to take from here. I am hoping someone can suggest the next step for me or refer me to a thread that already covers thi... Read more

I have been dealing with a broken home on my laptop for more than a year. I just searched these forums and found ~70 posts all with the same issue. This seems to be due to poor design that never should have made it past the quality assurance engineers, having a metal hinge screwed into non-reinforced plastic. I find it reprehensible that a premium laptop was made so poorly. I am told by local PC repair shops that it will cost me $400+ to get this fixed. That's 1/3 what I paid for the machine in the first place.I tried calling support and was directed to log onto the support site for assistance, from which I was directed to search the forums. I thought HP made better products than this, but hadn't wanted to put up the money to get one to find out. Then I bit the bullet and got rewarded with a busted hinge on a laptop that spends its days being used by my wife at home, bring opened and closed 2-3 times per day. And now it seems like I'm going to get the runaround to get this fixed, or just have to trash an otherwise great machine due to crappy hinges. I love this laptop as far as performance and hardware specs go but it is a pain to open and close to try and avoid breaking the other hinge and essentially removing the screen.Any guidance on what I can do to get an actual answer or a case submitted to get any useful help?More replies

My HP Touchsmart has never worked properly, Tons of problem, crashing error message etc etc. Computer was sent to HP for repair but it came back whit the same problem. I have spent hours with HP tech support running scan and making recovery with no succes. Recently I have replaced the hard drive on HP tech support recommendation. it worked for awhile but now it dosen't even boot! I don't want to call HP anymore and I wander if somebody can help me or if I should just give up.
Call HP and ask to talk to a manager, then explain what's happened and the number of times you called and that you've had to send it back and demand that they replace the computer with a new one. All-in-Ones are similar to laptops, the repairs are expensive and parts are hard to get, it's best to get the manufacturer to repair or replace it especially under the warranty.
I am new to the forum but a long time computer tech. I have been to the forum on various occasions for help on fixing different issues. I have to say this is a great community that helps alot of people including myself. I've ran into an issue that I believe is needing some of you guys expertise.
What I have is a touchsmart laptop from HP that the keyboard and the touchpad mouse quit working. I have searched all over the internet looking for answers and came across a few telling me to pull the battery and AC adapter to reset the computer. I've had no luck on this being a solution. I have read that booting the computer with the touchscreen facing out is what causes this issue.
So I've tried pulling the power and the battery then holding the power button in to drain any residual energy left on the CPU. And upon booting the computer keyboard will respond but only for the menu that states for starting Windows normally or in Safe mode. After letting the computer boot completely the keyboard and touchpad quits working altogether. This is booting it up in safe mode or in normal mode. The laptop is running Windows 7 Home Premium and I believe that this is my only issue. Any help or ideas on what else to troubleshoot will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Hello, Our TouchSmart PC will no longer turn on. It was working yesterday but today will not turn on. The LED on the back of the computer where the power supply meets the PC is off. When you press the power button the LED light flickers green one time but remains off. The computer does not power up at all. I have tested the power supply with a laptop and it is working. I have also tried another identical powersupply on the PC but the same thing occurs. Thanks
Hello @cb086, I have reviewed your post and as the adapter works on another device I believe you problem is on the motherboard. The issue appears to be a physical issue.

I have a currently crippled HP touchsmart 300-1003. I replaced a dead hard drive with a new 1TB HDD. I have available to me 2 sets of touchsmart recovery disks, and Windows 7 Bootable USB drive (made with win7 tool). The official recovery CDs do absolutely nothing but tell me MBR IS MISSING PRESS CTRL ALT DEL TO RESTART. The bios lists my new HDD (can tell because size is now 1000GB). I cannot choose USB drive as first boot in bios or boot order (this pc has two different menus for the same function, idky). Is there a bootdisk I can use to fixmbr? Please be so kind to provide a guide to getting a touch computer running from the begininng. All the advice online seems to be for computers that will go to a recovery screen already. If I could do that I wouldn't need the disks, lol. I would like to install the touchsmart software but will settle for any windows at this point. Thanks in advance to anyone that is able to walk me through the process.1 Hour Later: To use MSWIN7 USB Tool, I had to ENABLE BOOT DIAGNOSTIC from BIOS, power on, let the black screen read Configured 01 usb drive, ctrlaltdel, f10 to bios again, disable boot diagnostic screen, save and continue f5, then hit ESC for tiny boot menu at the HP LOGO, pick USB 2.0 as first boot. The tool started windows as Repair (which I followed MSguide for bootsec and /fixmbr, no clue if that fixed mbr tho) and Install Windows 7. I picked install. More updates to come.

I was unplugging my power cords and I happened to turn off the power to my HP Touchsmart. Later on when I turned it back on, my HP Touchsmart won't switch on.

The power button does not light up.I've tried the solutions posted on other threads but nothing has worked. I had just been using my computer the previous day.

I've got a TouchSmart 610-1280qd desktop. It was working fine until 1 week ago when my home had a power outage. Now, it won't even boot up. No power, nothing. Even the power brick light is out. I bought a replacement power brick and when I plug it in, the green led light on the new brick(the old is blue) immediately goes out and there's still no power. The power button effects no response, nor does any button on the keyboard have any effect. There's just no power to the entire computer. I've tried plugging both the old and new power bricks in and initially, the blue and green lights on each respectively go on, until I plug them into the desktop. Then the lights go out and still no power and no response by pressing the power button or any button on the keyboard. I've also tried plugging in the old and new power bricks without the surge protector. The power bricks lights go on, but as soon as I plug them in, still no power. I've tried different outlets around my house and the power bricks lights go on, but as soon as I plug them into the desktop, no power. I've tried plugging he power bricks into the desktop first, then the outlets, and no power at all either in the desktop. There is no response at any stage where i've pressed the keyboards buttons. The desktop just doesn't have any power at all. Anyone have a problem with this? I really hope it isn't what I think it is and the motherboard is out. &nb... Read more

Hello I have a touchsmart 300 and it has no sound from the speakers or headphone jack. I have tried the troubleshoot thing and it dont recognize anything wrong with them. please help. ive tried updating the driver and it says it is updated. so lost. thanks.
Did your pc have working sound when new?
Check the volume level, it's easy to turn it right down or mute it.
Check if the speakers are selected by going to the speaker icon in tray near the current time.
Right click on speaker icon, choose 'playback devices'.
A new box appears, with a speaker and it should have a green tick over it.
Right click on the icon and choose the option 'test', you should hear audio tones.
If you don't have a green tick, right click on icon and choose 'enable'.
Machine is overheating. Dismantled and lots of dust etc cleaned out but small fan is not working and need a replacement. Bar code number of existing fan is 1323 00230H2 oA F000 099L 06LH
Hi there @Superuserhp, Welcome back to the HP Support Forums! I understand that you are looking for a replacement fan for your computer. I am happy to help with this. I would recommend that you check out the HP Parts Store. Be sure that your country is selected and then put in the product information. If the part is not currently in stock, there will likely be authorized sellers listed for the part as well. Please let me know whether that works for you, and if it does resolve your issue, please mark this post as a solution. Kudos would also be appreciated.1 more replies

In my quest to clean out a bunch of unused programs, I found that I have HP TouchSmart Recipe Box.
After researching about this, I decided it just might be something my wife could use; however, everything I have read about it says it is for HP TouchSmart computers.
My desk-top is HP but I don't think it is a TouchSmart.
My question is, must we have a TouchSmart computer to utilize the HP TouchSmart Recipe Box ?
Try these Google searches:
HP Magic Canvas
HP TouchSmart Recipe Box
What exact model of HP do you have? I find it difficult to believe it isn't a touchsmart if it came with the software. It looks like the apps can be used with a keyboard in many cases, though. See review video in your other thread.
Does anyone here experience install Win XP Pro on HP touchsmart tx2(downgrade from Vista)? I need some advise. thank you.
I would advise you not to install XP on a touchsmart PC. The reasons are as follows.
1. Make sure all of the drivers are available on the HP Support website.
2. Since XP tablet edition is not available in retail, the touch screen won't work.
3. You will have ask HP to give you a OEM version of XP tablet edition (which I don't think they will provide).
If you just want to use it as a non-Touch screen PC. Go you may go ahead only after you have confirmed that the drivers are available.
Post back if you have any more questions.

Good Evening, I have a HP Touchsmart TM2-I can supply the specs if you need them- and it has just started to crash at almost every click/action which I take. THis has only happened within the last couple of days and it has been instant, rather than over time. I did a System Restore but this didn't solve the issue. It may ahve been because I had to stop a disk check last week because my laptop battery died but I'm not sure if that would have such a big effect on the laptops performance.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
Thanks a lot
That would have a huge effect not finishing a disk check. If you can boot in, Make sure you have your power adapter attached, Go to Start/Search and type CMD Right click the CMD.exe icon in the Search Results and Run As Administrator. In the Command Prompt type chkdsk /R and press enter. Now type a Y and reboot the computer. The Check Disk Utility will try and fix any problems.3 more replies

Hi, I need to purchase a new motherboard for my TouchSmart 610. I've opened up the computer and found that the motherboard installed in the computer is model number DA0ZN8MB6I0 (Part number 648511-001). While trying to find a place to purchase this mother board, I see that is motherboard is fairly expensive. While searhing I also found another motherboard, model number DA0ZN9MB6H0 (Part number 648512-001), which is also used in the TouchSmart 610. Visually this motherboard looks the same at the orignal motherboard and is significanly cheaper. The part numbers differ by only one digit (before the revisoin number, 001), which makes me think that the two motherboards are very similar. Does anyone know if these two motehrboard are compatiable/interchangeable? Where can I get information on the difference between these two motherboards? My motherboard has a built in video cards, does anyone know if the second motehrboard does as well? or will I need to purchase a seperate video card if I were to purchase that motherbaord? Thanks for the help.More replies
Hi, I just recently got an Envy All-in-One Touchsmart; it is a super machine and so far, so good. The 10-point touch is really cool, but there are many instances when I would like to be able to use a pen in order to be more precise in my pointing or to "mark up" a document. I know Microsoft Office has the "inking" feature because I use it on my Laptop with a "pen" while I am traveling and have found it invaluable -- and, by the way this laptop is both touch and pen enabled. I tried to enable "pen" by going to the Control Panel feature that is says says Pen and Touch, but when you do so, it is only for Touch. How can I make it so that it both touch and pen enabled? If that is all possible, what type of "pen" do I need? Thank you very much
Hi AIResnick, A stylus used on a capacitive touch screen basically just takes the place of your finger, so enabling touch on the computer will enable pen input as well. But it can't just be any pen or stylus, the material at the tip has to be something that will register as touch on the screen, and not scratch it. I read your other post and I understand you're looking for a finer-tipped stylus, rather than the ubiquitous blunt-ended, eraser-type stylus pens. That limits your options quite a bit, because I believe the larger surface area is part of what makes those pens work on capacitive screens. (Other types of touch screens can use other styles of stylus, including pointy-tipped ones in some cases.) I've heard good things about the Jot Pro from Adonit. I haven't tried it, so I can't speak from experience. The design seems clever--it looks like they attached a clear, flat disc to the tip of a metal pen, so you can see precisely where you're writing with the point of the pen, but the clear disc provides enough surface area for the touch to register, and prevents damage to your screen from the sharp pen point. I hope that helps.4 more replies

Hi @markdag, Welcome to the HP Support Forums! It is a great place to find the help you need, from other users, HP experts and other support personnel.I understand that you are looking for information on connecting your Touchsmart All-in-One to a PS4. I am happy to give you a hand with this. The available connections on Touchsmart and All-in-Ones in general vary from model to model. Some have an HDMI port that can be used as an input, and others do not. Looking at the specifications of the model you gave: HP TouchSmart 600-1350a Desktop PC Product Specifications, it shows in one diagram that it could potentially have video inputs, but it is an option. If your system does not have those, then you would not be able to use the display on the All-in-One with your PS4. I hope that helps clarify, and if it does resolve your issue, please mark this post as a solution. Kudos would also be appreciated.1 more replies
I have just bought one of these damaged. The screen is smashed, there is no HDD, RAM, Battery and Power Supply. It also has bad damage to one corner (been dropped from a huge height by the looks) thus damaging lid, palm rest and base. I know RAM and P/S are not a great cost issue but I'm not sure if it is worth buying a new screen and hdd for it. I paid ?42.00 for laptop as it was part of a job lot, and I see they retail at around ?500-?600. Should I fix it up to sell or keep, or just sell it as it is to see if I can make a slight profit?
Forgot, obviously, not been able to check MOBO on it either yet, no spares to check it.6 more replies
Good day all,
I currently own an HP Touchsmart tx2 laptop which is currently only about 19 months old. Recently when I tried to start the laptop, the screen stayed blank, all the lights on the laptop flashed on and a couple of the lights kept flashing on and off. I took it to a repair technician who said that the Graphics chip on the motherboard was burnt out and the most convinient option was to buy a new laptop. So here is my problem:
- What is the possiblility of having the chip, or the motherboard replaced?
- If the motherboard is replaced, do I need to buy a new processor or can the current one be used?
- Also, what is the general price of the motherboard and are there any decent website that offer them for sale?
- Lastly, if I do need to get a new laptop, what are the good touch screen laptops (11 inch screens - I like them small - and not an apple product)?
Hope someone can help me out.
Look on EBay for the exact motherboard. The part number is usually on a tag under or near the memory. The memory is under a panel at the bottom or under the keyboard. You can use the memory and CPU from the old board
This is an example:
So I want to upgrade my RAM on the 320-1030. The specs page says "Two 200-pin DDR3 SO-DIMM sockets".It also says "Supports DDR3 SO-DIMMs" and specifically "PC3 10600 (1333 MHz)" and "PC3 12800 (1600 MHz)". Yet more HP contradictions (lies?)1) The parts page lists the item pre-installed is 572293-D88, a 204-pin item. See here, here, here, here, and here.2) Using the automated systems for major RAM sellers all indicate 204-pin RAM will work on the 320-1030. Crucial.comNewegg.com What gives?!?
Hi: I do not believe there is any such thing as a 200 Pin DDR3 SODIMM, so HP's reference to that is incorrect. A DDR2 SODIMM memory module is 200 pin, and a DDR3 SODIMM is 204 pin. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SO-DIMM Paul9 more replies

I have no idea which one suits for the driver - maybe update all of it with the HP page I suggested.
Same problem as some of the others with touch screen not responding. It works part of the time and then stops. BUT this is the weird part... if I press control/alt/delete and select Task Manager then select "X" to close the box (without doing anything), the touch screen will work again. It used to work for a day or two at a time. Now I have to do the Task Manager thing about every 10-15 minutes. It's driving me nuts!! At most I have my email and maybe 2-3 browser tabs open. I am in no way a techie person. If someone could help me using plain English that would be wonderful. Or tell me this thing is dying and I need a new one. Help, please!!

I'm using a HP TouchSmart 610 and my wireless keyboard (original copy that comes along when I bought the desktop) suddenly stopped working.
I've researched for various solutions online and I found out that I'm suppose to have a wireless receiver. However, I can't seem to find it on my desktop. I'm quite sure I didn't pluck it out or anything of that sort, is it possible that the receiver is in-built?
Anyway I've tried the following:
1. Replacing the batteries
2. Taking the batteries out and putting it back in again
3. Hold the 'connect' button for 5-10 seconds
Those didn't work for me and I'm hoping that I could find a solution here.
Thanks in advance!
p.s hope I'm posting this in the right forum.
how many batteries does the keyboard have 2 or 4
also the spring is that connecting correctly to the battery - so make sure that the batteries are all connected and touching the spring and positive bit of metal
Usually the touchsmart comes with a receiver USB device
have you tried removing that and refitting
do you have a wireless mouse and is that working OK
we have a brand new hp touchsmart 600-1365qd w/ a new Windows 7 and it crashes at least 3 times a day. Sometimes it crashes where it says the problem is blue screen and it says something about dumping, but the computer doesn't know how to let me read the dump file (.dmp), even though I probably wouldn't understand it even if it did.
Other times, it freezes, the mouse doesn't move, or the internet pages just keep working to load (when connection is fine), and ctrl-alt-delete won't stop it and I have to turn the power off and on to reboot. I thought it is a computer problem but you had another post that mentioned Windows 7 crashing so I thought I'd run it by you.
This last crash/reboot happened without me doing anything, and I had excel, and three tabs of the internet running that was it. Any ideas?
Thanks so much!

I own an HP Envy TouchSmart 15 Notebook PC product number: E0K05UA#ABA and Model: 15-j053cl
I had a couple plastic screw inserts that hold the right side hinge to the top cover of the laptop break due to very high strength of the hinges which caused the top cover of the laptop to pry apart from the base enclosure when opened (a problem many owners of this laptop model have had). Since I was out of warranty I ordered a replacement on Ebay using the correct part number 720570-001 and disassembled my laptop to make the repairs and loosen the hinges while I was at it. I swapped out all parts being careful to note where and how plugs and ribbons were connected so I could put it back together correctly. Now after having it reassembled it will not turn on.
I get a white LED light to turn on when I plug in the power cord AC adapter (should be amber/orange in color to signify it is charging the battery) but no other sounds lights or signs of life. I have attempted to remove the battery and power cord, pressed the power button for 8-30 seconds to drain power and do a reset and then try to power up with plugging in the power cord but it won’t turn on. I also tried to power up by removing one part at a time including the hard drive, two RAM sticks, and wireless card but still not able to turn on.

So one of the Civilian guys i work with has an HP Pavilion Touchsmart with Windows 8 installed and he overheard me talking to someone about my ability to wipe a computer and clean-install windows 7. He asked if i could do it on his new HP since he basically refuses to use it because of 8 and can't take it back...I've done a lil bit of research about this PC and i guess it wasnt offered in a 7 variant (at least i cant find it) and i read a few articles about downgrading only being possible on Windows 8 *PRO* machines.
I've tried the conventional boot from flash drive with Windows 7 install files, and try to install but it says it cannot do it because the partition style is GPT...and i have no earthly clue what that is...it's new to me. I've wiped and clean installed windows 7 on countless computers now...even one that had windows 8 on it that was an HP...but for some reason this one is extra tricky.
Any body have any Tips or Tricks, links or anything that can help guide in the right direction to getting 8 off this thing and putting 7 on it? It has to be possible...like i said, i've done countless computers now and havent failed yet...but this one has me scratching my head...HARD!!!

Greetings, I have owned this laptop for over 2 years and have encountered many problems which have required me to open up my laptop and remove debree/dust from the interior.

When plugged in the white led light still shows next the the charger socket, but the power button will not light up after several tries. The fan does not start to spin either. I have tried the hold the power for 1 minute idea, but it does not change anything.I have 3 possible conclusion that are very unlikly to me.1. I worked on carpet and had static electrickery! Doubt it.2. The harddrive is not working properly3. The memory is not working properlyAny fixes to these above? any other possible causes?More replies
HP Envy Touchsmart M6 Sleekbook turned off suddenly and won't boot now. Power and WiFi light for a few seconds and then nothing, will not actually power on. Following some related posts I openned it, unplugged battery, plugged in wall and tried to power on. The same lights come on, the power button and wi if for a couple of seconds and nothing. This time though the fan did come on, or at least it sounds like a fan, it's a whisper fan so it was always unnoticeable.Is is there something else I can try? Desperate....More replies

I upgraded my TM2T to Windows 10 and I love it. About a month or 2 ago I had to reset my PC and Windows 10 deleted my touchsmart software (Which was working fine before the reset) I have been looking high and low for the place to download. I looked up my computer on the support site and it isn't listed under my laptop just bump top. Any help is appreciatedThanks much!More replies
