Upgrade GPU on HP ENVY Notebook - 17-s013ca?

Q: Upgrade GPU on HP ENVY Notebook - 17-s013ca?

Is it possible to upgrade the 940m GPU on the HP ENVY 17 s013ca to a more powerful option such as the gtx 960? I understand that its "complicated' for laptops but any answer given would be greatly appreciated.

A: Upgrade GPU on HP ENVY Notebook - 17-s013ca?

Hi, Firstly GTX 980 won't fit and won't work on your computer. Your machiine already has laptop version. And the bad news is for nearly all consumers laptops such as Envy, Pavilion .... you can't upgrade video card. You need to buy work station class machines. Regards.

Just got this a month ago and there is always something wrong.  I have had to reinstall my Office 2007 pkg 3 times now. This message keeps popping up when I start it - AccelerometerST.exe error 0xc00007b.  So there is that and there is the problem with reinstalling my Office pkg.  It is the Outlook that keeps needing reinstalled.  Any ideas on what to do about these other than returning the notebook.  Thanks.

Hi All! Last weekend I updated the memory RAM of my laptop HP ENVY Notebook - 15-k277ca. The machine has 1 module of 8GB by factory, so I've bought another module of 8GB (same Brand and same rate). But the problem is that the machine did not recognize this second module, neither in BIOS nor SO. Currently I'm running Windows 10 Enterprise x64. The weird part is that I've downloaded the CPU-Z, and this software recognizes the two modules. Any idea?  Here are the image of the CPU-Z software (where the memories are recognized)

Are there any issues with upgrading my HP ENVY TS 17 Notebook PC  with 64bit windows 8.1 to windows 10 ??? Do i even want to upgrade ?

A:HP ENVY TS 17 Notebook PC Windows 10 upgrade problems ???

Well it is free if you upgrade by midnight tomorrow and after that is going to cost. I personally have had no real issues with Windows 10 on any computer that originally came with Windows 8 or 8.1. However, if you have the switchable graphics it has created lots of issues for other people so if you have that stay away from Windows 10. Otherwise I would say do it.

A problem has recently developed with my Envy notebook.   About 2 weeks ago my entire wireless network began slowing down when on it.   Noticeable on all devices.    When my provider came out, checked and tweaked some issues it appeared to be ok.   I went on with my daughers HP laptop and was drawing 20-24 mbps all over the house. When I reconnected mine to the system I was only pulling 6, 3, 5, up and down.   It doesn't start right away but after a few minutes.   So I put my duaghers right next ot mine and low and behold, when I ran her's it pulled 3 - 6 also.   So I turned my wi-fi off and hers' popped right back up.   I have also tried this with an old XP mini, my i-pads etc.   As soon as mine gets on the network the speed crashes.    This also happens with no one else home and no other devies conncted. I have downloaded the latest up to date Intel driver for this network adapter and it hasn't changed anything. Any ideas?

Bill_Ving Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!I read your post about wireless networking poor performance and wanted to help. My immediate guess is that you might have mixed-mode networking going on.  This happens when you have two different PCs networking in two different modes -- one using "G", the other using "N".  The wireless router (or access point) can optimize performance for either mode, but not for both.  So, the "G" mode drags down the performance of the "N" mode PC, but even worse, with the router set for mixed modes, it performs more slowly than with either PC connected by itself.Here are some other troubleshooting steps you can try: HP PCs - Troubleshooting Wireless Network and Internet (Windows 8) | HP Customer SupportGood Luck========================================================================I am a volunteer and I do not work for, nor do I represent, HP.---------------------------------------------------------------Please click "Accept As Solution" on the post that solves your issue to help others find the solution.Please click the Thumbs-Up symbol on the left of the Reply button to say thanks fopr my help.========================================================================

Recently noticed the notebook wasn't aligned to my desk. Thought the feet on the bottom were uneven. They're fine. The notebook seems to have a "bubble" on the keyboard where it's higher than the rest of the keyboard. Obviously it's impacting the entire notebook since it's no longer sitting level. I'm concerned it's going to impact the performance of the keyboard and the fact that it's not even and "rocks" when I'm typing is driving me crazy.   Can someone please direct me on how this can be repaired. It was purchased new in 2013.

I bought this product just 2 years before and I already spent almost 200 extra. The machine itself costing me 699 + 200 means it is worth of 899. But now agian got another problem, because of heating in the system left side is broken and I need to replace whole case. When I called them they said your machine is out of warrenty so I need to pay extra 75 and then they will chek what happed and again I need to pay repairing cost. Means the total machine cost is more that 1000, which is worthless. In the same amout I can go for mackbook which is atleast don't make any problem for 6 years.  So I decided not waste money on HP product. Supprot system is totaly worst. Never buy any hp product

Two screws have fallen out on the bottom of my computer...now it is almost falling apart and will not open half of the time.  I took it to a repair place today and the guy said this is the 4th computer of the same kind that he has seen this month with the same issue.  He said the plastic and/or screws are stripped and there is really nothing you can do for it so I should be looking into buying a new computer within the next few months because one day I will open it and my screen will come apart from the keyboard.... I can assure you that when/if I have to get a new computer it will NOT be an hp.  This computer is less than two years old, has never been dropped and if I take it anywhere its in a padded case!! This is ridiculous considering how much I paid for it!!!  Any suggestions on how to fix this issue because apparently talking to anyone at hp is impossible...  Has anyone else had this issue?  I am so frustrated, I use my computer for school and don't need it to fall apart on me when other than being made crappy, its been treated perfectly.

Hi, it seems that I keep having problems with my HP envy m6 notebook PC (windows 8). I have had this computer for 2 years and it keeps breaking down on me! I was using it this morning around 9:30 AM, and it was running fine, and it was charged. I turned the computer off, then headed to my class. Once I got out of class I went to turn on my computer and it would not turn on! I tried taking out my battery and putting it back in and turning it on, taking the battery out completely and turn it on with the charger hooked up, I even took out the battery, unplugged it and pressed the power button for a minute then put the battery and charger back in and tried turning it on and still nothing! This is very frusterating as I am a college student and I need this laptop for classes and I can't afford to have my computer break down on me anymore! Will someone please help me?! P.S. My led light when my charger was plugged in was not turning on either, and the power adaptor was not warm when plugged in, I don't know if this is one of the reasons why my computer will not turn on.

I am incredibly disappointed with HP; I purchased my computer just long enough for the warranty to expire before one of the hinges attching the screen to the keyboard snapped, something that has since made the computer difficult to close and, in general, to use. This is a problem that other users have had on other ENVY models, yet when I attempted to reach out to an HP representative via telephone, I was informed that I would be charged $229.99 for a repair. It is both disheartening and mind-boggling that a mechanical issue, very likely one that stems from me being sent a defective product since this was not the result of the computer ever being dropped, would cost me about 20% of the price of the computer to repair.

I bought this version of the laptop in November 2013 and a few days later I had to return it because the WiFi would not work. I got my second one and the WiFi worked for about 6 months. For months I thought it was Time Warner Cable and I would argue with them time after time doing speed test after speed test and sending me a new router. So then I started calling Tech Support for both Microsoft and HP and got the run around. Finally the place where I bought told me it was HP. So again I called Tech Support and they finally agreed that it was their hardware they began helping me. Each of their solutions would last for a months. FInally the WiFI just flat stopped working. After arguing with them about how long this problem has been going they finally agreed to fix it even though the 1 yr Warrenty had expired. They had me send it off to the facotry or HP repair shop for 7 days. Here they replaced 3 or 4 items.  This worked for about 8 months.

Hello Community, Recently I've been having an issue with my notebook's wireless, I'll try to summarize, so please let me know if more information is required. I've had my HP Envy for almost one year, so far, no issues. I got the windows 10 update last year and mostly, everything is usually fine. A few months ago I bought a Smart TV (a LED TCL 32 inch, nothing fancy). Reading the specs, I saw that it supports miracast, so I tried it with my HP Envy. At first, it worked perfectly then, a few hours later it suddenly stopped working, It seems like both the notebook and the TV can "see" each other, but are unable to sync, so it fails to connect every time. But that is not the main issue (although it may be related to it). Ever since the miracast stopped working, whenever I turn on the TV, even if not on discovery mode or smart mode, I just lose the wireless connection on my notebook (the TV remains online and so does everything else in the room that requires wireless connection), it just doesn't work for me, until I turn off the TV. It's driving me crazy and it is quite annoying having to ask to turn off the TV every time I need to use my notebook. I have all the latest drivers installed (and I've even ran a Windows 10 reset to defaults) still, the issue remains. Any suggestion?Thanks!

Unfortunately it is more than the screw. Screws do not just fall out. First something has to strip the screwhole. That is usually a hinge problem.

My HP ENVY m6 notebook left hinge broke within one year of purchase and it has gradually progressed into the base of the laptop. As this issue happened within one year of my laptop purchase, I was eligible for the warranty coverage. Since I was overseas at that time, HP service centers in Indian refused to help me out with this issue. Now over the time, this issue has bigger and the dislocated hinge has not started to break this base of the laptop and the screen continuously has a bright line. I have been extremely careful with handling my laptop and it has not fallen ever. This issue seems to be common with lot of other people also and I believe that this is manufacturing defect. I am really disappointed in the kind of product and service that I have received from HP. I just can not afford to go for a costly repair or a new laptop due to financial constraints. At this moment, I really don?t know what to do!

Hello, I have a HP ENVY 17 Notebook PC (Model 17-j000eb). I have a HDD disk of 1TB in the primary slot. I have also a second slot. I want to put there an SSD. My only question is, how do I know what type of connection that I have to order? Which things are important to watch out when I order an SSD for this notebook? I will also need an adapter + cable. I assume that the cable to the HDDII port has to be a lot less long then for the HDDI port.I want to do this action because the laptop is going slower and slower.

Please check availability from the following site:                http://www.newmodeus.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=498 After that, my suggestion: Clone existing HDD to new SSD, can be same size or smaller (capacity) depending on your existing data/files on HDD now,Swap SSD and HDD. All normal 2.5" SSD's for laptops use same connectors as normal 2.5" HDD's for laptops  Format the old HDD and put it on the second slot/bay.I believe this is a quickest way to get everything works. Regards.

DON'T BUY THIS PRODUCT.  I switched from Apple to HP in January 2017, thinking it was a smart move as the laptop was half the price. 700 and 4 months later, the bottom casing has cracked and apparently my warrenty won't cover it.  The crack came as no fault of my own. I have not dropped it or mishandled it. It was a lot of money for me to spend and so I treated the product with the upmost care. Yet HP would like to charge me 137 to replace the casing. 137 for cheap, poor material that cracked within 4 months?  Upon buying this product I was told it was indestructible and wouldn't break easily. 4 MONTHS LATER???  This laptop is not worth it and HP are a terrible company.

Yes we can get you the Manual and plastic case parts are available but parts do not just "come loose". Either somebody is secretly taking a screwdriver to it while you are not looking or there is a failure somewhare in the hinge system which can work screws loose. Can we have a little more description or perhaps a picture? Page 18 here has an exploded diagram with the parts. Can you point out what is coming apart and how?

Hello,
 
My HP notebook is little over one year old, and therefore, out of warranty.  Before the first year was over, I noticed that the left hinge was pulling my laptop apart.  It was a small gap and my schedule was hectic.  Therefore, I did not pay attention to any warranty coverage issues.  However, the laptop came apart more and more until both sides had the same issue where the two halves under the keyboard are separating.  I called HP and was told that since it was out of warranty, they could not do anything.  I asked where I could get it fixed and did not get an adequate answer.  Now, my screen occassionally flickers and I am afraid that the issue will get worse. 
 
I am very angry at HP now, although my last two HP laptops were very reliable.  [content removed]  Today, after a lot of research,  I found the hinge issue being addressed on these forums. 
 
I NEED HELP.  I need a reliable fix!!

My HP ENVY dv7-7212nr Notebook PC is coming apart. Is there any solution for this situation. I purchase in 2013 and for a product to be comparable to the MacBook, this product is definitely poor workmanship. At first, I too thought it was loose screws and received that popping sound whenever I opened the case. After a month of this, the case is completely separated and being held by duck-tape. If this is the best that HP can produce, after the amount of money spent on this type of computer, I will definitely not be buying another. If anyone has found a solution for this problem, please assist.

My HP Updater recently installed several HP Updates including one for bios. Ever since those updates installed, my notebook won't wake up once it goes to sleep. It used to wake if I moved the mouse or tapped the enter key, but not any more. The same thing happens if I close the lid ... notebook goes to sleep and won't wake up. The power light is on but nothing works. I have to hold the power button down and do a hard restart, which is not good. Also, at the end of the day when I go to Start > Power > Shutdown, the computer acts as though it is shutting down, the screen goes black, but the power button does not go off. It stays lit and nothing will wake the computer up again except doing a hard restart by holding the power button down until it goes off. Please help!

Hi All, I've recently begun to have an issue where my laptop will restart when it goes to sleep. On top of this, the boot up is super slow. I'm not really sure what could have caused it. I was away on vacation before this started happening but had shut down my laptop. It was super hot while I was away, but if the computer wasn't on, I don't think this would have been the cause? It was also really hot for a few days after I came home and turned it back on, but I used it minimally before I noticed anything was wrong. Problems started occuring around July 26th. I don't know if that is helpful but I'm trying to think of any causes. And what is probably an unrelated issue, clicking my mouse wheel doesn't seem to function (i.e. opening a new tab in my web browser) like it should all of the time. Here's what I've tried to no avail: - Checked Power Settings- Updating Windows- Updating BIOS- Simply Restarting- AVG and Maleware scans- System Restore (But it failed. And speaking of, after the updates I found that it was disabled? So I enabled it and created a new restore point, but that seems weird?) I guess I'm all out of answers.

How do I fix the keyboard backlight on my HP Envy Notebook m7-u009dx.  It used to work but I have had a BIOS update,  and since then it stopped working, so not sure if that caused a problem.

I have 2 screws missing from the bottom of my laptop, 1 in the top left hand side and the other from the top right hand side. Both by the hinges which is causing the laptop to seperate in both corners. Laptop is only a year old, I can't seem to find an answer to solve this problem, I see others are also having this problem, can you please give me the solutiion to this?

I've had my HP Envy Notebook for only 3 years. I paid $1300 for it and have taken great care of it. A few weeks ago, I noticed the left hinge rotating differently than the right one. A few days ago I noticed that the rotation was getting worse and I also noticed that the bottom of the case was separating from the keyboard deck at the left corner near the hinge. After reseraching this issue, it appears that the hinge on my laptop is broken and that this is a big design issue with HP laptops. HP should pay for this. I should not have to pay for this especially since the problem is widespread and pervasive. Laptop cases should be sturdy enough to hold up for the life of the computer.  I need help from HP and I want them to pay for this.

I have had my laptop for a month, kept it in a laptop case and never dropped or banged it. Opened it one day and one of the hinges seems loose and clicks whenever I open the laptop. Bought it from the actual HP site, has anyone had this problem aswell and managed to get in contact with someone who could get it fixed? Thanks.

Hi, I?m new to the forum and not really a computer ceek.
I got following problem, my hdd partition C on my HP Envy notebook is destroyed, the notebook has an recovery partition d which is also 500MB, how can I recover my personal data on the destroyed C? Is there the same data on the D like on the C?
The arms on the C are destroyed I guess everything else is working. I was thinking to get the same hdd drive and swap either the (double platters or the heads) but if I can do it differently I will refrain from taking the hdd apart.
Thanks for the help.

A:Dead hdd (C) on HP Envy notebook can I recover data?

Hi el condor,

Welcome to the SevenForums.

From what you have said I understand the HDD had suffered physical damage with a head crash. How did you decide that?

In such a case the HDD is a write-off and you cannot do a DIY.

If you want to do a data recovery in a physically damaged drive, you have to approach a professional data recovery service but it will cost you a bomb with unpredictable end results.

My honest advice would be to replace the hard drive. If you had made the recovery CDs, you can reinstall the factory installation.

If not you may have to do a clean install of the same Edition Windows that came preinstalled and use the COA key on the sticker of your HP Envy to activate it.

And if your notebook is still under warranty, contact HP Technical Support for the required service.

Hi @FlashRam1714 and @SDJL Per my post from 1-27-16: One day my TouchPad stopped responding completely. I uninstalled the Synaptics SMBus TouchPad driver under Device Manager. After I restarted my computer, my TouchPad was working again with the older Microsoft TouchPad drivers that  were still there. Eventually Windows automatically updated to the latest Synapatics 19.0.12.98 and the TouchPad was working until I closed my laptop and tried opening it again.  @FlashRam1714 intially responded to me and I followed the steps he told me. Here's my response on 1-31-16: I tried the hard rest first to no avail.  I followed all the steps in HP Notebook PCs - Using the TouchPad or ClickPad (Windows 10), including redownloading the newest drivers, and still nothing. I also tried your link to HP Notebook PCs - Testing for Hardware Failures (Windows 10, 8). I ran the component test for the mouse and passed both the pointing and drag tests. So clearly its not a hardware issue, but a problem with the compatibility between the Synaptics Pointing Device -v19.0.12.98 driver and the Touch Pad. Again when I roll back to the Microsoft 10.0.10586.0 Touch Pad driver, the touch pad works, but with a lot less functionality (the driver date is 6/21/2006) My machine originally had Windows 8.1 on it and I upgraded to Windows 10. I noticed Synaptics has a newer driver (v19.0.19.1) that goes with Windows 10... Read more

I also have an HP Envy, differnt model, and I have a dedicated keyboard backlight button, also known as 'f5'. The button just stopped working. I do have light on the power button when the power is on, and the f12(wifi) and caps lock lights go on, but only the dot in the upper righthand corner as is appropriate. Other than that, total darkness. I think the lights are burned out. Before, I could turn the backlights on and off at will, regardless of the ambient lighting. I have tried the available links for 'repair', but to no avail. I would really like to know what the problem is, and what can be done to return the f5 button to its former glory...if that's even possible.  Thanks.

I have an HP Envy m7-n109dx notebook running Windows 7. Originally it came with W8.1 but I did a clean install of W7. Used PC Mover to move files from old laptop to new notebook. Updated the drivers, reinstalled necessary software....whole nine yards. Machine was running fine and I was almost done. Happy as  a pig in mud. Turned the machine off one day and...it wouldn't boot.
 
Originally I had a black screen with a winload.exe error message. So I copied winload from my desktop (also running Windows 7) to the notebook.
 
Then I had a bootmgr error message. I tried to use the bootrec command prompt with switches to fix the problem. Maybe that's when I screwed everything up.
 
Only other possibility is that after doing a backup (which I cannot access) I unplugged my external drive too soon.
 
The notebook won't boot. It has a black screen with error message "0xc000000f" and "The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible"
 
I tried fixing the notebook with Windows 7 version of NeoSmart's Easy Recovery Essentials. No go
 
Using ER Essential's Partition Manager it says:
Partition - unallocated

I have had to replace the hard drive in my laptop and the volume of my Beats Audio speaker is not as high as it should be.  I assume a driver needs to be installed.  I am currently running Windows 8.1.  Please advise if this is a driver issue and where I can find the driver needed and instructions to install. Thanks

Please provide the model number or the product number of your system. Also please follow these steps:1. In the search option of Charms Bar type devmgmt.msc. Select the resulted file in the left pane.

Select the unknown device or other device for which you need drivers and right click to access Properties.4. In the Properties window click on Details tab and select Device Instance Id  or Hardware ID from the drop down.5.

Hi I bought a brand new HP Envy notebook today, with Bang and Olufsen speakers. After listening to the sound for a while, I've come to the conclusion that only the 2 tiny front speakers tucked on the underside of the machine are actually working. It appears that there is a speaker on the top of the machine, but I can't hear any audio coming from it. I've gone into settings and looked through the sound settings there, but it only indicates that there are 2 front speakers available, whereas all of the online info I have read about this machine tells me there should be 4 speakers plus a subwoofer. I'm not that technical, but does anyone know why these other speakers and subwoofer wouldn't be working? Surely if it's brand new it should come with everything ready to work? I'm quite disappointed as I had expected quite a lot from the sound on this laptop but it hasn;t delivered so far. Many thanksChloe

Hello, I have a HP ENVY TS 15 Notebook PC and the casing on the left right over the fan and security cable is split. I think a little piece may have broken off.  The computer runs, fine, but the silver top, and the black bottom case are continually separating and it makes it really hard to open and close it and the screen is a ittle  wobbly. I've read through some of the other forums and so I think  I need to replace the casing, but do I also need to replace the top cover or anything else? The top cover looks fine, but i don't know,  it looks like the issue is with the case but I don't know.  Also, do I need special screws? Any help is greatly appreciated, i just want to make sure I get all the right pieces. Thanks!
