My HP Pavilion Notebook - 15t-ab100 CTO (ENERGY STAR) will not maintain my WiFi connection even though the WiFi is still connected to every other device in the house. I have tried using Internet Explorer, Chrome and FireFox. Fire Fox is the best, but i still have times when I have to disconnect and reconnect the Notebook 5-10 times an hour and sometimes it doesn't work to do that. Then it comes back just like nothing happened. I have tried the network diagnostics and sometimes it resets my adaptor sometimes it says there's nothing wrong. I still have 35 days left on my warantee but i cannot talk to tech support...WHAT"S UP WITH THAT?!?!?! I USED to be a loyal HP customer...never bought anything else, but if i cannot get some resolution to this, i am done!

Hi, The 24 character error code is a failure of the short Disk Self Test ( DST ) and would indicate that the Hard Drive is failing and needs to be replaced.  This is also consistent with the boot issue you describe. If your notebook is still under warranty, contact HP and arrange to have the drive replaced - If needed, you can check your warranty status Here. If you live in the US, contact HP Here. If you are in another part of the world, start Here. If you are out of warranty and would like a guide on replacing the Hard Drive yourself, please let me know. Regards, DP-K

I got my laptop about a month ago and from the start my microphone wasn't working. My speakers were fine, and I could hear everyone I was talking to but they told me that they could barely hear me, almost couldn't hear me at all. I didn't know what the problem was so I went out and bought a basic logitech headset (with microphone) and that still doesn't work. Now, no one can hear me at all and I don't know what the problem is. I will provide pictures of the Recording Tab if necessary and any information that will help me solve this problem. Please help me, thank you.

Hi, Try the following. First of all, remove any devices connected to the notebook, including the headset. Download the Realtek HD Audio installer on the link below and save it to your Downloads folder. http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp72001-72500/sp72090.exe When done, hold down the Windows key and press R Into the Run window, type devmgmt.msc and hit enter. In Device Manager, expand Sound, Video and Game Controllers.  Right click the Realtek device and select Uninstall - you should also get a prompt to remove the current driver, tick the box to allow this and then proceed with the uninstall. When complete,, shutdown the notebook. Unplug the AC Adapter and then remove the battery.  Hold down the Power button for 30 seconds.  Re-insert the battery and plug in the AC Adapter. Tap away at the esc key as you start the notebook to launch the Start-up Menu and then select f10 to enter the bios menu.  Press f9 to load the defaults ( this is sometimes f5, but the menu at the bottom will show the correct key ), use the arrow keys to select 'Yes' and hit enter.  Press f10 to save the setting and again use the arrow keys to select 'Yes' and hit enter. When windows has reloaded, open your Downloads folder, right click on the Realtek installer and select 'Run as Administrator' to start the installation.  When this has completed, restart the notebook and let windows fully load for a few minutes before ...

Hi, There are few things I would like to say: 1. The machine does not have VGA port. It has ? 2 SuperSpeed USB 3.0? 1 Universal Serial Bus (USB) 2.0? 1 HDMI? 1 RJ-45 (LAN)? 1 Headphone-out/microphone-in combo jack That HDMI port is for you to connect to an external BIGger monitor for you to enjoy games if you wish. 2. Not true, I connect to external monitors nearly all my laptops . Playing games on a laptop can always cause "overheating", no matter what. Regards.

ChelsHoll16 Without the PC model number, there's no way I can tell if your PC came preinstalled with Win10, or if you did an Upgrade from a prior OS. If you did the Upgrade, that is known to trash the HP Recovery information in the process, such that no HP recovery will work properly after that. If it came preinstalled with Win10, while his PC is still under warranty, you should contact HP Customer Support directly to have them put you in touch with HP Technical Support to see what they can do about diagnosing and repairing your machine remotely.I did this recently and the HP Tech was able to remotely access my PC from the Internet and do the needed repairs.If you live in the US or Canada, contact information is on this page: http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/phone-assist.html#section1If you live elsewhere, contact information is on this page: http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/ww-contact-us.htmlNOTE: After you get through, stay on the line until you are finally able to talk to some one -- it can take a while! Good Luck========================================================================I am a volunteer and I do not work for, nor do I represent, HP.---------------------------------------------------------------If my posts helped you, please click the Thumbs-Up symbol on my post to say thanks.If my posts solved your problem please click "Accept As Solution".========================================================================

My laptop probably suffered some damage within the couple years that I have had it but never had any running problems with my baby. I recently went to turn my computer on and the screen stayed black. The fan is still running and LED lights are still lit so I do not know what the problem is. I think it could be the monitor but I do not have an external monitor to test it on. I know that I am running on the Windows 10 OS but I  am not sure if it is 32-bit or 64-bit

Try a hard reset.  http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c01684768 Without an external monitor it is going to be hard to test if it is the screen panel. Do you see the hard drive light blinking like there is activity? Do you hear sounds? Can you get into the BIOS (F10) or diagnostics (F2) as you power up?

There never has been a 100% reliable list of what is past the whitelist but based on your hardware and the 2104 copyright on the service manaul, you are past the whitelist. The big problem you may still have is that your laptop series often only has one w-fi antenna. If so it is basically impossible to upgrade to a dual band card. The only way to know for sure if you have a single antenna is to open it up.  Service Manual  See p. 51. If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

Can you take it back? If you can, run don't walk and beg them to give you your money back and buy a computer with a real processor and a decent amount of memory, and some storage. That laptop has the Celeron N3050 and 2 gigs of non-upgradeable RAM, and a puny 32 gig hard drive which also cannot be upgraded, which is just rubbish. I mean it is $265US which will not buy a decent cell phone. It is a dirty secret and not popular to hear but the computer market is a race to the bottom; everybody trying to sell computers as cheap as possible and to do so corners must be cut and that computer is a circle. No corners at all.

(The keys in question being the 4, 5, 6, 7, r,t, y, u, f4, f5, f6, and f7). After a bit of research I worked out that to fix the screen I could just get some special wipes (unless anyone reccomends anything else?) However to fix the sticky key stituation: I would need to remove the keys, put the keys in some washing up liquid, clean out where the keys were with special alcohol and q-tips. Unfortunately, upon trying to remove the keys they didnt seem to come out very easily. I was so worried of breaking the keys in the end I left them in. In short how do I remove the keys and does anyone have any tips on cleaning spilt coke?

Hello,So i use a projector (Epson SB03) to watch movies (I use my HP Pavilion 15 Notebook PC  for this) I use a HDMI adaptor to get a signal to the projector, and about a week ago it stopped connecting. The thing is, it works on my second laptop, so it can't be the projector; either the cable or the HDMI port on the pavillion. I want to see if anyone knows any fixes before i go to buy new cables and adapters etc. any help would be apreciated.thanks~Teje

Hi TejeIf you roll back the AMD Display Adapter driver to the previous version the HDMI output will work again. That's what I discovered when I could not access my Epson Projector. There must be a glitch in the new driver which was issued by AMD in March 2016. CheersWAR1

I have a Pavilion 4 computer. I just changed my Standby Time to 3 hours. the Scheme is set on Energy Star. There is a Scheme for Home/Office Desk. Should I change to that or is it OK to just stay on Energy Star? My first experiece with doing this. I have XP. Would like to know the reason to change or not change.

Thanks in advance.
 

A:Solved: Energy Star

You select the scheme that best matches your own use. But it is in no way a "critical issue".

Sorry but we have no idea as to the frequency of use/hours of use that you have, so any suggestions could be inappropriate.

Recently purchased a new HP Laptop and I am in the process of uninstalling unnecessary software that was added by HP, (bloatware as some call it) but this is the first time I have seen Energy Star Software. I have had many HP computers and my 1 year old HP desktop did not come with Energy Star Software so it?s either a new item or more specific to laptops or tablets. I have searched the net but can?t lock in on specifically what it does, obviously something to do with power configurations but everything I have read indicates that it is not needed and can be uninstalled without problems. I intend to uninstall this software but I would like to determine if it has any benefit and then decide for myself if I want to keep it. Also, I did find one reference that said it might be difficult to uninstall from the Programs & Features page which would not surprise me because some of the other junk HP installs has a history of leaving things behind after uninstall. So, can anyone give me any details about Energy Star Software and can it be uninstalled without problems? Thanks

A:What Does Energy Star Software Do?

@gator2013  In answer to your questions about EnergyStar, and the HP EnergyStar software: HP Energy Star Software: The program provides the ENERGY STAR Qualified Power Plan. ENERGY STAR is a program to promote superior energy efficiency. This package provides ENERGY STAR compliant power options. And you can look at the details of the government certification as part of the Clean Air Act, below: About ENERGY STAR - energystar.gov How a Product Earns the ENERGY STAR Label -energystar.gov So essentially, it is a configuration providing for more energy efficiency in operation to reduce power consumption, and indirectly carbon emissions and also to save you money. I hope this helps.

I recently purchased a new HP Laptop and am in the process of uninstalling all the HP bloatware. I am fairly familiar with the stuff HP adds but this Energy Star software is a new one. I have a 1yo HP Desktop and it wasn?t there when I got it new a year ago.

I have Googled it and read what is out there but I still can?t lock in on what it actually does. It seems to provide some power configurations from what I have read. I did see one reference that said it might be difficult to remove through Programs & Features and while that doesn?t bother me as I do all software removal with REVO Pro Uninstaller, I know from previous experience that some of the HP add-ons can be difficult to completely uninstall.

Looking for some feedback from anyone that has actually uninstalled this software.

Thanks In Advance

A:Uninstalling HP Energy Star Software

After hunting around more today I still could not find any specific info as to what this software actually does. This morning I even posted the question on the HP Support Forum and have had zero replies and that is the HP Support Forum so I am inclined to think that it doesn't do much if anything.

The uninstall with REVO Pro Uninstaller was too quick for it to be much of a program and I have not seen any changes or a hint of a problem.

Hi - This was my Christmas treat for myself. I've already upgraded the RAM from 6gb to 8gb (planning to go to 16gb at some point in the future). I'm planning to fit an SSD to replace the slow (to me) HDD (1TB) that came with it. I've fitted and worked with many SSDs over the last 5 years (I work in IT and it's also my hobby), but have only used/upgraded to SATA SSDs. Whilst surfing various sites, looking for SSDs, I've suddenly become aware of mSATA and M.2. type SSD modules, which (in some cases), would allow for both a SATA HDD/SSD AND another SSD (mSATA/M.2) to be running at once in the same machine.  Have I raised my hopes too high? I've trawled the forums, the manuals etc and just cannot find an answer to this question. Can anybody answer this for me please? I'm obviously aware that I can replace my SATA HDD with a SATA SSD,  just want to know whether I can use mSATA/M.2 also or instead of. Many Thanks.

Hi, I have just bought a HP Star Wars special edition notebook with Windows 10 preinstalled. On the initial setup, I accidentally typed in my name wrong in the User account setup. (The keys are in a slightly different place on this keyboard to my old one and when I tried to hit 'backspace', I hit 'enter' instead and it moved onto the next page with no option to go back a page!) Anyway, I have changed my user account name to the one I want now but the user folder (C:\Users\) still has the incorrect name. I have read a few ways of solving this on here and decided that due to this being a new computer that I've made hardly any changes to it might be easiest to just reset the system and start again.

My question is this - because this computer is a special edition which came with lots of Star Wars content, if I do a full reset, will it reset with the content still intact, or will it wipe all the Star Wars content and reset to a 'normal' version of Windows 10?

Thanks in advance for your help.

A:Windows 10 reset on a Star Wars special edition notebook

There's no need to reset the laptop. Simply create a new user account for you, change its account type to administrator (all new accounts after the first initial one are standard accounts when created), sign out from the original account, sign in to your new account and finally remove the original account. Takes a few minutes, much faster than a full reset.

Step 1, create a new user account: User Account - Add in Windows 10 - Windows 10 ForumsStep 2, change the new account's type to Administrator: Account Type - Change in Windows 10 - Windows 10 ForumsStep 3, remove the original account: User Account - Delete in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

Hello! Recently i bought myself a new laptop, it is the special edition from Star Wars. Frankly i don't have anything with Star Wars, just the laptop itself looked cooled and the specs were ok for the price they sold it. Anyway i really want to put some more force in it, because after few days using it i don't really like the force it came with.Before i go crazy with upgrade stuff i wanted to ask experts on this forums if it was even possible. My Questions are : 1. What kind of DDR3L module should i put in the laptop to make the total amount of 16 GB? I installed AIDA64 to see what kind of stuff is in my laptop. It showed me that one kit of MICRON 16KTF1G64HZ-1G6N1 8GB 12800 DDR3L  CL9 is inside. Because i can't find same cheap module online of this same brand, im wondering if its possible to put another brand next to Micron? I'm thinking of putting HyperX Impact - DDR3L 1600Mhz CL9 SO-DIMM Module - 8GB next to the Micron one. Will i encounter any problems ? They have the same speed and latency so i don't think there will be any problems but i still want to ask this question just to be sure 2. Can i replace the current wireless adapter from stone-age for a newer one? The title is not a joke.

Good post. Well thought-out questions. Answers: 1. Memory. Yes, you can mix brands as long as the speed, voltage and latency and more particularly, the density is the same. If the old memory has 4 blocks on the side, get another with the same and also true if it has 8.  2. Wifi. There is no whitelist. However, in some cases where HP includes a poor wireless card, it also means there is only one wireless antenna. If that is the case, upgrade is a nightmare. If there are 2 antenna leads, you can install any other wifi module available in the same form factor (mini pci-e or M.2) with 2 wireless antenna connectors. 3. SSD. You nailed it on the head. In Windows 10 you can even do a system image backup and recover it to the new SSD and you don't have to buy cloning software.  4. Win 10 Pro. In the system properties page, there is a link to get the higher version of Windows 10, which will lead you to a download page for Pro and you can pay "the man" and do the upgrade. Just be sure you really need Pro. Not very many people do.  Let us know if there are more questions. If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

Just got a HP touchsmart 600xt w/ windows 7 on. Set it up 2 days ago, and it seems when it got into sleep mode and I bring it out, the display has changed to the HUGE icons, and this morning it froze. Any ideas how to fix this?

I have an ASUS G75 notebook that I'd like to connect to an LCD TV via HDMI. A few questions:

Does my notebook need to be turned off when I connect the HDMI cable to the tv or is it ok to plug it in while the notebook is turned on?

The notebook's screen res is 1600x900 max, the tv is 1920x1080. (The video card is an nVidia 660m with 2gb ram.) It will be ok to run the notebook at its native 1600x900 while running the tv at its native 1920x1080, correct?

Anything else special I should know about connecting my notebook to a tv?

Thanks much!

A:Notebook HDMI to LCD TV?

Yes, HDMI is "hot pluggable" meaning you can plug it in while either or both devices are powered.

The video will be handled by the TV and the resolution will be resolved. I regularly attach my phone with it's tiny screen to my TV via HDMI to watch video from Netflix and such without issue.
