Q: Unable to do a clean install of Windows 7 on a HP Envy x360 ...

Hi, I recently purchased an HP Envy X360 laptop for Work. The laptop came with Windows 10 Preinstalled. I am trying to do a clean install of Windows 7 and during the install I get a error saying that "A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing. If you have a drive floppy disk, CD, DVD or USB flash drive, please insert it now. Note. If the Windows installation media is inthe Cd/DVD drive, you can safely remove it for this step" I am trying to do the install via a USB drive. The laptop has 3 USB ports and i believe all of them are 3.0 Any help is greatly appreciated.

A: Unable to do a clean install of Windows 7 on a HP Envy x360 ...

Sadly, you CANNOT install Windows 7 via USB if all you have is USB 3 ports. Windows 7 does not support USB 3 out of the box. The way around this is to use DISM to add the USB 3 drivers (most of the time it's Intels drivers). I actually just did this to downgrade my 15t-ae000 from Windows 10 to Windows 7. I will be posting a new thread about the couple of driver issues left for that machine next. If you want the steps to make an install that will work with USB3 let me know and I will post the steps (it requires you to make a Windows 7 install image - not too hard). Bryan

Hi, Could someone tell me if HP 'officially' support Windows 10 for the HP Spectre x360?   I bought my HP Spectre x360 almost 2 months ago, whilst I have no issues with it (having not really used it hard so far), I wanted to upgrade to Windows 10 (clean install).  But at the time I purchased it, I spoke to HP Support and someone kindly recommended that I wait for a few months until both Microsoft sort out any teething problems (by releasing Service Pack 1 etc.) and HP was able to officially support all the drivers with genuine Windows 10 drivers.  At the time of purchase, not everything on the HP Spectre x360 had the correct Windows 10 drivers. This sounded like good advice to me at the time, so I have stayed with Windows 8 for now. When I finally do my upgrade, what is the recommended method?  Should I upgrade it first to register my copy of Windows 10 for my HP Spectre x360 with Microsoft and then do a clean re-install of Windows 10 (skipping the part where it asks me for my registration key)?  I have done many upgrades in my time and I am not really convinced or happy with an upgrade, a clean install is always best.  But do I need to do an upgrade first to register my copy of Windows 10 before I do a clean re-install? Finally, I plan to keep the recovery partition as it is, in case I ever need to go back to Windows 8.  Since I have a 512 GB SSD, I figure I have enough space to do this.  Would this be a r...

Hi  @iakudi?,  Thank you for your query.  I understand that you are interested in upgrading your Spectre x360 to Windows 10 and you would like to know if it is supported on your model.  Without knowing your exact model I can not answer that question for you. However if you go to the  HP Drivers & Downloads and input your exact model and follow the prompts.  If Windows 10 is listed for your model select it.  If a page with drivers listed is populated and has multiple drivers listed it has been tested and is supported on your model.  Here are links to assist you with upgrading to Windows 10 and  answer the questions you presented. . HP Notebook PCs - Upgrading to Windows 10 Windows 10 sometimes affects the recovery manager, so I strongly suggest you create your recovery media before attempting to upgrade to Windows 10.  With the recovery media you would be able to return your notebook back to factory including the recovery manager partition. Here are two  links from microsoft.com  that will also provide you with information about the upgrade. Help with upgrading to Windows 10  Upgrade to Windows 10  Thank you  for participating in the HP Forums!

Hello! I have a fairly new Envy x360 that came with Windows 10 preinstalled.  I do not like Win10, and have learned that many of my programs won't run on Win10.  I want to go back to Win 7 pro, but am not sure the hardware will work with an older OS.  Any recommendations on how to do this (get rid of Win10 and install Win 7)? Thanks in advance for your help!

A:install win7 on envy x360?

Antarcticgecko Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!With notebooks, the primary problem with trying to run a different OS than the one preinstalled is the need for the specialized HP drivers for the specialized hardware that comes in the laptop.  Desktops don't present such difficulties because they tend to use more generic hardware and you can often swap out a piece of hardware if you need to.  Laptops don't provide that flexibility. If you will provide the detailed product number of your laptop, I can check to see if HP provides Win7 drivers for it:  http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03754824?jumpid=reg_r1002_usen_c-001_title_r0001We can proceed once you provide the information.Thanks

I am having problems installing windows 7 on my HP Envy 15 TS laptop, I have tried every solution available on the web but none have worked so far... I always get stuck on required DVD/CD drive device driver missing, yes I have tried changing the usb 3.0 settings on bios from enabled to auto but the problem is this setting is not available on my bios. Please I need help

A:Unable to install windows 7 on HP Envy 15 TS laptop

Hi: Did you go into the BIOS, disable secure boot and enable legacy mode? Does your model have a USB 2 port?  If so plug the flash drive in the USB 2 port. Did you test your W7 installation media on another PC to make sure it works? Normally that error means you have defective or incomplete installation media. If you can answer yes to all of the above questions, then try this... This is if your notebook has an Intel generation 4 core processor... Download the drivers from this link below (first or second file listed -- 32 or 64 bit as applicable). https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?DwnldID=24293&lang=eng&ProdId=2101 Extract (copy) the files onto a usb flash drive without any folders. With the flash drive and W7 installation media plugged into the machine, boot from the W7 installation media. After you select the install now option, select the Drive Options - Advanced menu, then select the Load Driver option. You should now see the storage driver files listed. If you check the box, it will only include the compatible driver. Follow the prompts and hopefully, W7will install.

Hi, I'm having trouble with Windows Hello. When I first purchased my notebook, Windows Hello was working fine, I had set it up correctly and had been using it successfully for a couple of weeks. Now, it's suddenly not working, and when I try to configure it in settings, there's an error that it cannot find the camera. I've been through the support blogs/forums and tried everything I could find, i.e. updating the software drivers, updating bios, restarting, etc. I have no idea how to get it working again. I can still unlock with my pin/password but it's just inconvenient when it was so quick to use Windows Hello before.  If anyone can help that would be fab!  Cheers

I just received my HP ENVY X360 (T5K88AV). I ordered it with the HP Truevision IR HD camera, which according to the HP website, supports Windows Hello. However, I see no option under Settings > Accounts > Sign-In for it. I spent an hour with HP Support Chat and let him remote in to take a look. He said it looked like no IR camera was installed. We tried installing the driver for it with no success. Is there something I am missing? Is the HP IR camera known to work with Hello? Or is there something wrong with my hardware or drivers?

Apologies if something like this has already been posted, I couldn't find this issue with my searches.

I have just bought an SSD to improve system speeds, so I obviously want this as my system drive. I currently have genuine OEM windows 7 ultimate x64 installed, however the sticker on my machine is damaged (and old) so I am unable to do a clean install, Microsoft support tells me that I can't recover my product key, have to get it from HP, HP tells me they can't provide it, only recovery CDs.
I just want my legitimate copy of Windows on my new SSD, this appears to be allowed under Windows licensing as it is the same machine, just a new drive.
Someone suggested using System Image and restore disc, however the old drive is larger than my SSD so i don't think this will work, and Microsoft Support said they would not recommend "migrating" my install.

I want to be able to upgrade to Windows 10 when it is released, will a product key be provided when the product is upgraded? If so I will wait to do a clean install then.

A:New SSD. Am I unable to clean install windows 7?

What are the sizes of the two drives and how full is the HDD?

Hello everyone. I just want to share my current experience with Windows 7.
I had been dual booting Linux and Windows 7 through my BIOS on my Motherboard for a long time. Well over a year and a half with out any issues ever. I used Avast FREE anti virus and never had a problem. A few days ago I did a scan of my hard drive and AVAST listed over 420 viruses. I have no idea what I clicked on. I have never ever had this happen to me. I have been using PC's since 1984. Anyways. I had AVAST do a cleaning, after that my PC was always giving me the BSOD. For so many different reasons. Too many to list.
I tried a FRESH install and received nothing but errors.Windows 7 would never complete a fresh install no matter what I did. Mainly error code 0x80070570. The solution? After a few days and many, many hours of failure. I ended up wiping the MBR with a program and removing the partition table with another program. After I did that I had a clean Hard Drive to install Windows 7 on. Everything installed perfectly with no hickups. I Activated online with my Genuine Microsoft Key and have had zero problems since. Hope this helps anyone that had all the problems I had installing Windows on a apparently severely infected hard drive.

I am having issues installing updates on Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit with Service Pack 1 (I used a reinstallation DVD created from a genuine ISO download of Windows 7 Home SP1, straight from the Microsoft website). It is rather complicated, but here's
a rundown of the issues I've experienced and failed repair attempts.
I had a laptop that I was getting running for a friend of mine. He needed Windows 7 Home reinstalled. I wiped the hard drive, reinstalled Windows, and everything seemed to go fine. Windows successfully activated/validated. The internet worked fine and I
had no issues EXCEPT with Windows Update. After over a week and trying all the "fixes" mentioned below, I gave up. Now, I am having the exact same issue on 2 desktop PC's that I just got running.

Hello,

I recently ran into some performance issues with my Acer Netbook. It is an Aspire One that is about 2 years old now. I thought that it was the result of some malware, but was not really sure. Things went from bad to worse when I allowed my brother to "fix" my computer for me. The first thing that he did was open my registry and started looking for things that he said shouldn't be there and then deleted them. I do not have a list of what was deleted and he does not know, but I was watching and it seemed like he deleted and/or changed several things. When I continued to experience problems he tried to fix my computer again. This time he ran COMODO System Cleaner and a Free Windows Registry Repair. Things have still not improved. Sometimes when I turn on my computer, it will not boot to a home screen. When this happens I turn off the power and turn it back on again, it seems like if I do this 1-3 times, eventually the computer will start up to a home screen. I tried to run the ACER system reboot, but that program is no longer available. I have tried to reinstall Windows XP Home Edition, but I get a message that "A disk read error has occurred." All that I want to do at this point is to completely reinstall Windows XP. I have the product key from the sticker on my computer. But, I don't know how I can do this because I do not have a CD ROM and I do not have a Windows XP CD. Is there anything I can do?

Good afternoon. I post this only after exhausting all other options that I can find. Every laptop that I own, I build from scratch. Once it is built and updated and software installed, I snap an image of the device. This time, however, I can not get this system to install Windows 7 Pro x64. At first, I couldn't even get it to boot to a flash drive or external CD drive. An hour later, I updated the BIOS and reset everything back to factory defaults and boom, it finally loads up Windows. Now, I go through the setup process but every time I go to look at the drives [to format and what not], it tells me that I'm missing a required device driver. I select my language, and proceed, but get stuck at the same place. This is where I get super confused: This model laptop doesn't have a CD/DVD drive available, yet it's telling me that I'm missing 'a required CD/DVD drive device driver'. What?! Ok. I've downloaded all the drivers for the notebook, as well as used a 3rd party software to export all of them to another drive. It tells me to insert a CD/DVD [although there are none] or a flash drive to install the drivers. I've done this with both an external CD/DVD drive and with a 2nd flash drive, but still get the same message. My experience tells me to disable the USB 3.0 and force it down to 2.0, at least until I can get the OS installed, but I can't find any options for that in the BIOS. Does ANYONE have any other ideas to use?

I recently had to do a clean install of Windows 10 Home x64 (1511 Build 10586.318). Before the clean install I could share and view on my Panasonic TV all the photos / videos stored on my PC. Since the clean install, while all the media locations on my PC are listed in the Windows Media Player Libraries, including my OneDrive, only the OneDrive locations are visible on the TV (Windows appears to automatically add the OneDrive to the list, as if you remove it from the list of libraries it is added again automatically!). The TV is listed in the devices to which the media can be streamed on the Local network.

I also have a Western Digital NAS drive and can stream all media to the TV from this without any problem. Can anybody suggest why the media located in the default Windows Pictures / Video locations cannot be viewed on the TV, while the OneDrive locations are and how I can solve this issue?

What's the difference between the HP Spectre x360 and the HP Envy x360? They both look the same.The only noticeable difference is that HP Spectre x360 has a Radiance Infinity display, while HP Envy x360 has an IPS display. Having the same specs, except for the display, why is the Spectre x360 more expensive than the Envy x360 ? Moreover, I thought that IPS is better than TN, which is my guess that is the technology used for the Radiance Infinity.

A:Unable to clean install Windows 7 or access recovery partition

If you cannot run HP System Recovery then your options are to try to make Recovery Disks, order Recovery Disks from HP Support, or do the superior Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7which provides everything needed to get and keep a perfect install.

The HP Factory install is the worst possible install one can have of Win7 with the worst load of bloatware in the industry, and Useless utilities that interfere with better versions built into Win7. You will never even experience native Win7 performance on that PC until it has a Clean Reinstall which is why no tech enthusiast will run the factory install.

Hi,

I have recently done a clean Windows XP Install followed by installing Service Pack 1 then 3.

Everything was running smoothly and I was able to log into the desktop.

However when I tried to check for updates via Windows update, in Internet explorer however it always says the 'Internet Explorer cannot display this webpage'

After diagnosing the issue, it found no problems.

I can browse any other website but sometimes when I click on an item through doing a google search, it sometimes sends me to a random search engine page!!

I then installed spybot, fully updated it however it showed nothing in the scan results.

I think that my browser maybe hijacked because when I opened internet explorer today, a webpage immediately loaded up with the address:

I recently purchased an HP ENVY 15t QUAD - E4T17AV It shipped with Win8 and I honestly can't stand it. Upon attempting to reinstall with Win7, I am unable to find any disks to install to. I have searched the devmgr in win8 for the information on the SATA controller and the chipset. I have downloaded the drivers and when attempting to add them during the Win7 it finds the drivers that are compatible with my system but when i attempt to install I recieve the error "No new devices could be found." I enabled legacy boot options, disabled secure boot, changed the boot order, all that good stuff. I have attempted to install having both the SATA and mSATA drives attached, as well as only having one or the other attached, and recieve the same error each time. I have used several different drivers from HP and Intel and all recieve the same error. I have read other posts from people saying that they have install Win7 on their 15t, so it must be possible. What am I missing? Thanks.

hi, I bought a HP Envy x360 laptop (m6-w103dx) in the US a couple of months ago and today it has just shut down (died) on me and I cannot boot it up. Power cable light is on, so has power, but nothing's happening.I plug in the charger and the orange light turns on and then when I click the power button it blinks white one time then it turns off right away.Any help would be appreciated... Thanks...

A:NEW HP Envy x360 Won't Turn On

If you leave the power adapter plugged in dose the led stay amber?That means it is charging. Your troubleshooting describes a notebook with too low of a battery charge to boot into Windows. Let it charge for an hour or so before trying to power it on.

I have a brand new Envy x360 that I've had about a week. The power will turn on but there is no display, no HDD activity and lights on the cap locks and mute will not turn on. I've tried a hard reboot, held the power button down for up to 30 seconds to shut it off. I've connected it to an external monitor via the hdmi port, and i've disconnected the battery for about 30 minutes, connected AC power. Still not display, no bios post and no HDD activity light. At this point I'm guessing the motherboard failed. Are there any other troubleshooting suggestions or should I return it to the store I got it at (Costco) for a replacement?

I've had this HP Envy for a little over a year now, and shortly after having it the keyboard backlight just stopped working.  It didn't really bother me until recently, as now I find that I'm in situations where the backlight would be handy. I've tried restoring the BIOS to the default, and I've tried updating the BIOS.  The designated backlight key also does not work anymore, but its alternate fn command (f5) works.

Hi ambowditch.  so, your notebook having issue with no display & caps lock is blink. caps lock blink is actually was an error which is notebook motherboard was try to tell to user.what u need to do is, try to count how many time caps lock is blink.  try do following troubleshooting first before u count the caps lock blink. 1. perform power cycle. remove battery & power adapter. then press & hold power button for 30 sec. then plug in power adapter only and power on the unit. make sure battery is not installed. if you lucky, may be the notebook will start with HP Logo and windows will load as usual. but if not, try to count how many time caps lock is blink. thanks. ghost. Please mark my post as SOLVED if it has resolved your problem. It helps others with similar situations.

Hello,I'm having some trouble with my Envy x360 (m6-w103dx). I like it a lot so far and decided it needed a boost, so I took a Crucial BX100 250GB SSD I had and cloned the HDD that came with the laptop to the SSD. Immediately on boot the laptop says the drive's smart status has an issue/failing (which doesn't seem right, the other PC's I've been trying the SSD on aren't showing the same things, and just this morning the SSD was functioning perfectly fine as the boot drive of an older PC)After that the laptop would say "Boot device not found, Please install an operating system on your hard disk" (3F0).So I figured okay, maybe I botched cloning the HDD. I plugged the SSD back into my desktop and wiped it clean, and prepared a Windows 10 USB installer. While I was doing this, I also put the original HDD back in the laptop to make sure it was still functioning properly and the laptop booted up fine just like it used to.I put the wiped/cleaned SSD back into the laptop. I'm still getting the message about the drive's smart status on boot, and "Boot device not found, Please install an operating system on your hard disk" (3F0). So sounds like I just need to install windows...plugged in the Win 10 USB drive, and set bios to boot USB first. After that Windows 10 installer came up just like it normally does but there were no drives detected. I'm pretty stuck at this point.

Laptop will randomly feeze to the point it becomes completely unresponsive and requires a hard reset.  This has happened consistently since I've had the laptop. In the last couple month the frequency has rapidly increased.  I have contacted HP Support numerous times and continue to get different answers and the run around each time. - All Windows and BIOS updates are ran- I did a clean reinstall of Windows based on recommendation from the chat session. Then I had one agent tell me it was probably malware and needed to send me a recovery disk, then the next person said it was a bad Microsoft update.  I've done everything asked and I still have a laptop that is constantly freezing, and this is becoming increasingly frustrating. I've noticed this seems to be a common issue with my model of laptop, and wondering if there is a fix for it. Please someone help me out here.

So the power button on my HP detached from the laptop. Long story short, I was boarding back home and hit a rock and fell forward therefore breaking the corner of the power button and shatter the touchscreen. I was still workin fine, except the fact that the screen was shattered and the power chip was dangling out of the laptop. It survived a few weeks before the power chip fell out. I couldnt find the time to go to a store to see what they could do. the only thing keeping it alive was the charging power but I fell asleep with the laptop on. Lucky me. The laptop was working perfectly. I've had it for some time right now. I have ALOT of important files and documents. I was wondering if there was a short-cut or a way I can get my Laptop on without using the power button. I just want to back-up everything i have in the laptop and make a desicion of getting a new one or fixing this one.

I am connecting the scanner via a USB. The laptop recognizes the scanner and adds it as a device. However, it does not install any drivers to make the connetion between the scanner and the laptop.  I have tried multiple times to download the drivers from Epson.com and still does not work.

So I've been researching for a few months now but have still to no avail found a viable solution/answer anywhere I looked.

I have this HP ENVY x360 - 15-u111dx and I would like to add a SSD to this laptop for the OS to reside on.   According to the HP Support Assistant, it is a product number J9H90UA#ABA.HP Support page for this laptop provides me a link to this maintenance and service guide, http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c04513489.  It seems to indicate that it does have the ability to take an SSD in the form factor of "M.2 2280-S3-B-M"  And in the product description, it says in the Internal Expansion section that it has this, "One 2280 M.2 daughter board - optional support for SSD"Used space on the C: drive is 90GB.  The D: (recovery) uses about 30GB.This leaves me with a few questions.1.  Can a SSD be added while keeping the factory 1TB drive installed?2.  Can I migrate the OS (and recovery partition) to that SSD, boot to that SSD, all the while not messing the up the ability to do a system restore/recovery of the OEM Windows 8.1 software provided by HP?I think step 2 will be the trickiest.  If someone knows of a free product to do this, I would welcome that recommendation.  I'll also take recommendations for paid software if no free exists.  Thanks. Edit:  Sorry, I also have a video problem, and must have had that on my mind when I sellected where to post this.  Could a mod move this to the correct forum please?

Well this has completely stumped me.

I wanted to put my spare computer to use. It previously had Win XP Home on it. Last week I installed Windows 7 beta to have a look, however after realising I would be unable to connect it to the internet due to security restrictions with my University Internet service provider. I decided to install Win XP Pro with the plan to dual boot it with ubuntu. (btw I was very impressed with my short look at Windows 7.)

I deleted all partitions and made a new one on my master disk and formatted to NTFS. Installation went fine. However after the compulsory installation reboot the Windows Loading splash screen apears but nothing happens, I never even see the loading bar. I have now tried to install win xp pro a number of times, I am unable to boot in to safe mode, I have performed CHKDSK in the recovery console and FIXBOOT, however to no avail. I'm really stumped as to why I can't get windows to load, I the know the disc is fine as it has been used successfully in the past.

I have a feeling this is bios/uefi related
Got a sabertooth z77 with two ssd on raid 0 (intel) another hard drive for backups (Regular sata) and another storage card (pciexpress sas highpoint 2720, with raid 5)
Windows 10 doesnt seem to like this.
Even booting the dvd itself its a drag and hr wont recognize the raid 0 not even with drivers (driver load will cause a watchdog blue screen)
Windows 7 and 8 dont mind. At all.
I feel like the csm thingy might have something to do.
Bios is latest. Sas raid is for storage only. Ill search for the manual of the board as the printed one doesnt have the options i got on the screen

A:Unable to clean install, only upgrade

I had some advancements. I upgraded the bios from my sas card and configured it to disable "int 13 and ebd" something. I managed to install windows 8 and now im upgrading to win10. I hope that works
I had an error which a quick google search recomended to disconnect the network cable

I'm just wondering why my new Envy x360 is still in "Processing" after 5 days? When I know it doesn't take that long to test. I also know that by 4:00PM EST it is 4:00-5:00AM the next day in most of China. The only change to the standard build is the UHD display. Since the display is the only real possible change to the standard config then there should be some already built like that. Also since I didn't have any software/services added it should be just off the shelf. F.Y.I. IT support and services is what I do for a living and am employed by a HP Partner. HP ENVY x360 Convertible Laptop (15.6")HP ENVY x360 - 15t Touch Laptop1TB 7200 rpm SATA+ 128GB M.2 SSDFull-size island-style backlit keyboardSecurity Software Trial16GB DDR4-2133 SDRAM (2 x 8GB)Intel® 802.11ac (2x2) Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth® 4.2 ComboOffice Software TrialWindows 10 Home 6415.6" diagonal UHD IPS UWVA edge-to-edge glass (3840 x 2160) Touchscreen (for HD Camera)HP Wide Vision HD Webcam with Dual Digital Microphone4-cell 55.67 WHr Lithium-ion BatteryIntel® Core? i7-6560U (2.2 GHz, up to 3.2 GHz, 4 MB cache, 2 cores) + Intel® Iris?

I'm interested in the Sony Vaio Flip 15A with i7 Core and Nvidia GeForce 735M. But I also like the HP Envy x360 with Intel HD graphics but no graphics card. I got a few questions...

1) Which one would you buy in general?

2) Which would you buy if you were a casual gamer?

3) Sony stopped making this Vaio 15A. Which laptop is best for availability of parts if you needed to replace parts in the future?

A:Which to Buy? Sony Vaio Flip or HP Envy x360?

Honestly these are stupidly expensive. I would just get a desktop. I know you want a laptop but for gaming, desktop rigs can be less expensive and easier to modify in the future.

If you were to go with one of those I'd choose the HP because of the Graphics card, the better processor, and a ssd. Although the other one is hybrid at 1TB and 16GB flash with 16 GB DDR3 1600 I would rather have the better graphics and processor if I were going to spend a stupid amount of money. I'm not saying you are stupid btw lol. You can always get more RAM, but it is not always easy or even possible to switch out the graphics card or processor. Even though switching out the processor IS possible, if you are not familiar with hardware I would NEVER recommend that.

But yeah if I had to choose it would be the HP

Hello all, I've looked all over, including the User Guide and Spec Sheet, but cannot find the max memory for this laptop, nor the type of RAM I'd need to upgrade.  It is currently using 2 x 4GB Samsung 1600MHz for a total of 8.  The product name per HP Support Assistant is HP Envy 15 x360 PC, Product Number G6T85UA#ABA, running W8.1 64 bit OS. Thanks!

Hi,I just recently bought this laptop. The only issue I have with it is the slow HDD. If I replace the 1TB HDD with SSD, will it void my warranty? I know that I have to lift the keyboard side up to be able to do so, but I just want to make sure that I do not void the warranty. Feedback will be appreciated. Thank you.

I am looking for options for a docking station for this device.  It looks like the HP Ultraslim Docking Station described at this link would be compatible, but it talks about HP Elitebook and not specifically for HP Envy models:   http://store.hp.com/us/en/pdp/business-solutions/hp-2013-ultraslim-docking-station-d9y32ut-aba

A:Choosing the right docking station for HP Envy X360 13t

Hi, The Envy x360 does not have docking port therefore any USB port replicator can do. Now you need to check your requirements, not for your x360 but how many devices you wish to connect (for example you want to connect two more monitors, external speakers ...) this will help you to make decision which one to buy. Regards.

Hi, I just got a new HP Envy x 360 in July 2016 and a new HP monitor 27es Display in mid-August.  It was connecting to the monitor by using HDMI fine till last week.  From a week ago (around Labor day), it stopped recognizing the monitor.I have an old HP laptop, and it is fine connecting to the the monitor by VGA.  So, it is not the monitor's issue.I remember I did the recommended HP update around the same time.  I am suspecting that update caused the issue with HDMI.  Can anyone help?  Thanks.
