Q: Pavilion DV4 Pavilion using UEFI does not show internal dvd ...

I have a Genuine Microsoft DVD for Windows 10. When I put the Bios in UEFI boot mode It does not boot from the DVD or if i use a USB bootable stick formatted using APT format. When I hit esc on boot and select the boot devices to boot from nothing is shown. If I let it just try to boot it give me a message that no bootable image on hard disk. It is a new hard. When I put it in legacy support mode it will boot either the USB or the internal DVD, but I want to use UEFI and the new APT format for security. What device can you buy so this laptop will boot something that is portable media on this bios ? It came with this format on the original hard drive with windows 7. Thanks,Buford HP Pavilion DV4-5113cl with INSYDE F39 bios from latest update

A:How to install UEFI on Pavilion G6 1001tx

Here is the link to download UEFI:http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp61001-61500/sp61282.exe This package provides the HP UEFI Support Environment version 5.1.1.0 in supported models that are running a supported operating system.UEFI and Custom ImagingThe HP PC Hardware Diagnostics UEFI must be run from a FAT or FAT32 partition with a partition name of "HP_TOOLS" or "EFI".This installer will give you the option to install to the HDD or a USB drive.If you install to the HDD and the HP_TOOLS or EFI partition is not present, the installer will prompt you to create the partition.If you install to a USB drive, the installer will rename the partition on the USB drive to HP_TOOLS.If you use a custom image, you can create the HP_TOOLS partition manually with type FAT32 and make the partition name HP_TOOLS.Caution- The HP_TOOLS partition is not protected and can therefore be deleted.- Backing up the computer using the Windows® Complete PC and other backup software does not back up the HP_TOOLS partition.For these reasons, HP recommends that you do not place additional data on the HP_TOOLS or EFI partition. Because the partition is not backed up, corruption or failure of the partition will result in loss of all data on the partition, plus loss of UEFI functionality.You can find more information on www.hp.com/go/techcenter/startup

...in that at 5-6-7 it seems to require me to select the CD then boot to Windows from HDD then restart and do the same again, but this time select CD again, or something??
I expected to set the device, then restart the computer and it would boot from the device, not restart Windows as described.
I was able to boot from a WinPE 4b CD.

I then decided to try changing boot order in the UEFI BIOS. From then on the HP (F9) described menu showed 'Windows Boot Menu' only under UEFI Devices. I could only boot from CD after putting the order back to 'Windows Boot menu' at the top of the order list; after which, as long as the CD was in the drive the (F9) list showed the CD drive as selectable to boot from.

I find this, after 30 years of normal BIOS, to be confusing.
Can somebody help please?

You can boot any DVD/CD/USB disk with WinPE4 in UEFI mode, with Secure Boot ON & UEFI mode ON.

Hi, You can't overclock your PC. HP PC's manufactured 10 2011 typically have a legacy BIOS. Check total memory in BIOS. It should be 16GB. Do you have integrated graphics? This will use system memory causing Windows to report less usable memory. An 8Gb difference is really big. Graphics usually use 2GB to 4Gb.  Also, are you referring to free RAM while viewing Task Manager or usable RAM which can be viewed in Control Panel, System? Cheers!

I recently upgraded my HP laptop to Windows 10 but discovered the internal microphone no longer worked after trying a video call on Skype. I have researched the problem thoroughly on the web and watched all the help videos I can find, but to no avail. I have tried updating the drivers from Realtek, uninstalling the microphone in devices and restarting my laptop, but nothing has worked. Before I updated Windows, the microphone worked fine. The 'intergrated microphone array' that I've seen discused on forums for this problem does not show up as in option in audio recoring devices. It doesn't seem to be recognised by my laptop at all in audio settings. In 'playback' the only device is Realtek speakers and in 'recording' I have set Realtek microphone as the default device but the internal microphone still does not pick up my voice as it used to. When I have troubleshooted the issue, I am told that my microphone is not plugged in, but this shoudn't be the case as I have never used an external microphone with this laptop. It seems that due to the Windows 10 update, my laptop no longer recognises the internal microphone. Does this mean I will have to buy an external microphone, or is there another way of fixing this problem? Any help with this issue would be much appreciated.

Can anyone (1) confirm that this model of laptop has an internal microphone and (2) tell me how to get it working? Narrative: I have had this laptop for several years with Win 7 64-bit, recently upgraded it to Win 10 Home 64-bit.  When running Win 7, I definitely used an external microphone with the input jack, but I'm not sure I ever used the internal microphone.  Yesterday I tried to use Skype and couldn't get the microphone to work (I don't have an external mike where I am now).  Started trying to analyze and the only  Recording device listed in the Recording tab of the Sound control panel is "Stereo Mix, IDT High Definition Audio CODEC" - not sure if this applies to the internal mike.  Neither speaking to nor tapping on the microphone hole above the screen caused any response at all in the level bars at the right of the window. Started to doubt that I have an internal mike, so looked for specs.  On http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c02910495, I found "Webcam with Integrated Digital Microphone (VGA)", which led me to check out the integrated webcam under Imaging Devices.  Still no definite confirmation that I have an internal mike, but I found an image of the laptop with mike identified next to the webcam, that corresponds to my laptop, so I really think the hardware is there. I used Device Manager to check for updates for the webcam device (HP Webcam-101), and it said the drivers are up to date.  I d...

I have had an HP Pavilion dv9535r notebook computer for a year now. A few weeks ago the computer screen mysteriously faded through a series of colored lines, gradually reaching a uniform black. Most of the computer hardware seemed to be working-If I put a disc in, I could hear it start reading the disc. The AC power was working, and so were the fans. I just couldn't see anything. I only got a response when I let the computer die before restarting it. When i restarted it, i was given several options; I could continue to Vista like normal, or attempt to fix the problem. If I went to Vista like normal, it seemed fine for maybe an hour or two, but then the screen would randomly fade as described. If i tried to fix the problem, Windows said it couldn't fix it. Now whatever i do, the screen fades. Even taking the battery out, letting it die, etc. I've tried using the recovery disks I made when i got the computer, but the screen doesn't respond. In case the problem may just be the monitor, I tried conneting the computer to my TV using an S-Video cable. No response. Is it just the graphics card (Nvidia GeForce 8600GM) ? Of course, the warranty ran out just before. Please help! Thanks.

My HP dv5000 Pavilion Notebook is failing to recognize the internal CD-ROM drive. This is a recent problem, the drive was working properly less than a week ago. The device manager shows no option for the drive as well as the system information in the HP help center has the drive listed as not being installed. I have go so far as checking the BIOS (Phoenix edition) for the drive but am unable to locate the option to check if the drive is enabled. I fully understand the risk and danger in entering the BIOS, hence why I am seeking advice from those who are more knowledgeable. I have tried calling the HP support center for assistance; needless to say they were of no help. The individual I spoke to had even less knowledge of computers than I do and even less of how to help solve my problem.

If there is anyone able to help I would greatly appreciate it, thank you.
 

A:My HP dv5000 Pavilion Notebook is failing to recognize the internal CD-ROM drive.

If Device Manager doesn't even show the drive there is a good chance that it has died. You can look in BIOS. In a Phoenix BIOS where you usually want to look is under Main. You should see your HD and maybe the CD drive. Settings should be on auto. If the CD drive isn't there it probably needs replacing. With a laptop you could take the drive out and put it back in to make sure you have a good connection.

Does the motherboard ( pegatron memphis s ) have the extra SATA plug and does the power unit ( 300 watt ) have the capacity to add something like a Barracuda Seagate 7200.10 HD? I called the help desk and was bounced around to 4 people and they could not answer these questions. And I guess I should ask if there is a place to attach the HD so it is not loose. I have two of these hard drives and would love to put them to use as a back-up internal hard drive, if possible. I am aware that I can kit them to be external HD via USB. Thanks, Mike.

Hi everyone,
I apologize in advance- I don't know much about computers.
A few days ago, I shut the lid of my Hp Dv6 6108us laptop (running windows 7 home premium 64 bit) and when I opened it later, the Wi-Fi button was lit amber, signaling that it was turned off. I pressed it again to turn it on, but nothing changed. Since this has happened once or twice before (I didn't think too much of it) I just restarted the laptop, which usually got the light back to blue (=working Wifi). Nothing changed over several reboots.
So I did some googling.
My driver is a RAlink rt5390 802.11 b/g/n adapter
I've tried pressing the F12 button (which turns wifi on and off)
I've tried a hard reset
I've tried going into the registry, disabled WLAN AutoConfig and restarted.
I've updated BIOS and the chipset driver available here (http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/s...t=5118843#N253)
I tried changing the power settings so the wifi wouldn't turn off during sleep mode, but it acted as if I had no wireless driver. Troubleshoot did nothing but suggest I use an ethernet cable.
I've uninstalled (then reinstalled after it didn't help) HP connection manager.
I did a system restore to before the problem occurred.
I finally found the device in device manager after doing the "show non present devices=1" in the registry.
--There's no enable option
--Clicking roll back did NOTHING.

Actually that's a hard question, generally its not possible to install another motherboard, sometimes it is. In this case one is an AMD platform and the other is an Intel platform, there could be tons of differences in mounting holes, physical design, clearance, connectors, heat dissipation requirements, cooling systems, etc. Laptops are not like desktops that use more standardized designs.

Hi there,
I am hoping someone here can help:
I just picked up my new W8.1 computer from the store and started playing with it. I inserted 3 GPT Hard Drives. All three showed in the UEFI but only one of them showed up in Device Manager and in Disk Management. No matter what I tried, I could not get those other 2 disks to show up. Finally, I decided to re-load the whole darned thing from the recovery partition and re-load all drivers etc. Now all three Hard drives I had inserted showed in Windows. (I looked at all of them - all are fine - no Hardware issues)
However: I later changed the positions of the hard drives ? i.e. the drive that WAS in slot 2 was moved to slot 1 etc. ? I?m right back to where I was before: All three drives show in the UEFI ? only one of them shows in Windows. This is my first machine with a UEFI. Is there something special that needs to be done to get those drives to show up in Windows?
One more thing: I also started the system using a bootable CD (Aronis recovery CD) and from here, all drives are visible.

Hi, My comany is purchasing HP EliteDesk 800 G2, some comes with HDD and some with SSD.We deploy Windows 7 x64 using SCCM using legacy boot. On a machine with HDD installed I can configure the boot options to use legacy boot, but when I replace the disk to a SSD drive the only boot option for this drive is UEFI.That causes the deployment to fail because the drive need to be partitioned as GPT.On the other hand, if I disable legacy boot, PXE boot to UEFI and partition the disk as GPT, after the image deployment the disk is unable to boot with 0xc000000d error (I imagine the cause is Windows 7 support becuase it does work on Windows 8.1). Bottom line, I can install Windows 7 on a HP EliteDesk 800 G2 only if legacy boot is enabled and I partition the disk as UEFI.Is there any way of forcing the SSD to boot as legacy and not UEFI?Is this issue caused by the workstation or is it enforced by the SSD? thanks.

I made no hardware changes and the only software changes were Norton, Spy Sweeper, and Windows updates.

I am trying to reinstall XP and all of the sites I've visited regarding this (Including HP) say, "From the Windows XP desktop, click Start, All Programs and then HP Tools.
I do not have that on my menu. The only thing regarding HP is the HP Share to web and Hewlett-Packard officejet software.
Where do I find HP PC tools so that I might perform HP PC SYSTEM RECOVERY ?
I've tried doing a SYSTEM RESTORE from the SYSTEM TOOLS menu and it goes through the process and then restarts only to say that it failed. Any advise would be refreshing!

HP Pavilion g7 right speaker is non-functional. The issue occurred after unit was dropped. I am absolutely certain it is not driver, software or balance settings etc etc etc... Is it possible that the connection was jarred loose somehow? Both channels work through headphones.
 

A:hp Pavilion

Could be the connection, or something broke like the actual speaker, one of the wires, or the circuit board/adapter/plug for the speaker.

You will need to open it up and a look, no other way around that.

Video-
I tried installing Direct X 9. It seemed to install fine, I restarted
like it asked me to and I tried installing and playing Halo. It game me
a error about hardware acceleration, it did the same with Battlefield
1942 (giving a slighty diffrent error, but basicly the same), and also
with a N64 Emulator. They all gave me Direct X related errors. I went
into several places (can't really remember were" to check what video
card I had, and they all said "unkown".

Audio:
The audio doesn't work, I didn't really try anything to fix it other
then making sure everything was connected-which is it.

Also, I don't know if this is important or not (it shouldn't be), but I
uninstalled the defualt version of windows the PC came with, mainly
becuase of all the worthless **** it came with, I figured it was just
easier to re-install windows thne delete it all.

CD Burner:
I can't get the thing to work, I tried Nero and CDRWIN and neither of them would burn a cd, it just said no CD writer installed

I was thinking maby it was a drivers problem, I tried reinstalling them
through the device manager section but it just said their was no drivers
found.

I was having some issues with my laptop being slow and randomly shutting down applications that were open. I scanned for viruses thinking that could be the cause, but none were found. I then decided to just do a total reset and erase literally everything on there. The reset got to around 62% and then it said it failed. Now my laptop will not completely turn on. It just goes to a black screen with the HP logo and then back to a black screen. Every once in a while an error screen pops up with a message saying something like CMOS checksum error. I have tried resetting it with the power button but it haven't worked. Does anyone know how to fix this? It's only a couple months old and I really don't want to buy a new one!

My HP Pavilion 15 automatically intalled the Windows 10 1607 update but it stopped my keyboard working. Oddly it was possible to enter my PIN but then the keyboard no longer worked after the home screen appeared. Using a USB keyboard gave the same result.  I removed the update and the keyboard worked again but I assume if I let the 1607 update install again the same problem will happen. I have used the HP Supprt Assistant and installed all the updates but the BIOS update will not go away. It looks like the BIOS update is not supported for this model. The currnt BIOS is F.43 07/29/2016. The latest is F.43 8/15/2016 I tried to make a USB flash drive after identifying my System ID as 2293 but when selecting the BIOS file to install 02293.bin is not listed. The only ones available are 0227D.bin, 02291.bin, 0227A.bin, 02299.bin and 02292.bin. My question is where can I get the BIOS update file to match my Syetm Board ID (2293) and will updating the BIOS enable me to run the Windows 10 1607 update?

Hello everyone.
Any information that might help will be greatly appreciated.
I have a H,P pavilion 763n with windows xp.
I bought it new but never got a system recovery disk.
It has a secondary hard drive that stores all of the system recovery stuff.
Whenever I had any problems before I have used it and it worked great to totally toast the comp back to how I got it.
The problem that I am having is my son got some kind of bug on it where it wouldn't do anything.
SO, I bought and tried to put in vista but it didn't work so I bought win,XP and it installed so the comp works fairly well but nothing that was installed from H,P isn't there.
The secondary hard drive that has all of the recovery stuff is still there but their is no way to get to it.
What can I do ?
With what I spent on vista and a new xp I could of bought a new cheap comp but I like this one.
It does (or did)everything that I would like it to do but now it don't.
Please help in any way that you can.

Good Afternoon,
Would like to pose this question and see if any of the group can assist me.

I currently image our new CPU's with a secure image of Windows XP Sp2. Our computers (desktop and laptops) mainly consist of Dell's and images work fine thanks to our information management staff. However, our director has an HP Pavilion dv8000 notebook that I cant get an image to take on it. It just goes into a cycle of choosing safemode or boot normal.

The weird thing is, I have an option at the start of the image to choose "network" or non-network (stand alone) and the stand alone image works fine.

Are they any settings on this HP that I need to turn off or on for the network image to work?

Thanks in advance

However I did accidently discover that tapping F10 brings up the Recover system on her computer. Not knowing exactly for sure if I could just correct her winxp with recoverying the whole system I turned off the computer to stop it. I have 3 questions
1) Can anyone tell me if the Recovery System on this HP model allows you to correct a current copy of your windows without reformatting?

If you go to the linked HP page and enter your product number, you should be able to find the HP drivers for your touchpad: http://h22207.www2.hp.com/us-en/contact-hp/

If there are no Win10 drivers, then you should not have upgraded to Win10, because not every HP machine running Win8.1 is upgradeable to Win10 without problems. You could have checked the compatibility on the HP site prior to the upgrade.

I just bought this computer on May 7th.  Computer shut itself off and tried to reboot itself.  Then reported that there is no hard drive.  Now mind you I have been using this computer for over three weeks now. I shut down the system for the night, turned it on the next morning and it worked for about 5 hours.  Then shut itself off  came back on went into repair mode just to end up saying there was no hard drive.   Called HP and spoke with someone I could barely understand.  I spent 5 and 1/2 hours on the phone trying to get this to work.  She asked if there was any other progams on the computer.  I told her nothing but the anti-virus.  She decided it was my antivirus that was not compatable.  She proceeded to walk me thru the recovery and it still didn't work.  So I was told to wait until June 6th for a usb stick system recovery.  It will fix the issue.  Today June 6th I received the system recovery usb stick, followed instructions and low and behold again there is no hard drive.   I spent over $800 on a computer that I can't get to work.  Can someone please help me?

Hiya morgansssss,

Right mate do you have all the Quickplay software. If so all you need to do is goto Start, Computer, Devices, Hardware. At the top of the page you will see System Devices. Click it.

You will then see a window just like XP. Hit the hardware tab then scroll down to the USB line.

Once there you should see "USB composite device". Right click on it and choose Enable.
There will be a pause as the device is enabled.

You will then need to scroll up a little and find "imaging devices". Right click on "HP Webcam" and enable it.

That should sort it out. If not let us know.... Hope that helps. Peace

My wife's HP Pavilion has hit the bunk, or so it seems.

It's a four year old laptop, which has been suffering from serious spyware problems for a while. Before it quit, I ran Panda active scan on it, and it detected 200+ malware infections. When I tried cleaning out Temp. Internet files, cookies, etc., IE would freeze and not respond.

Then - the mouse quit on logon. So, I thought, I've had it, time to reformat and reinstall manufacturer software. Which I did, only to find out that on boot-up mouse and keyboard both refused to respond. Not good.

Ran the diagnostic utility, which said something about RAM being set wrong, and then point out some non-specific "board problem".

Does anyone have any idea what this is about, before I reach for my biggest sledge hammer and have some quality time in my backyard with this piece of junk? :suspiciou

download Spybot search and destroy and ad-aware.

it looks like another friend dropped off a computer that is completely messed up. its a hp pavilion 6640 or somthing like that. my friend claims it has upgraded memory but i know it came with at least 64mb. it came with win 98 on it, then was upgraded to millenium but dragged ****. i tried putting ubuntu 5.10 and 6.10( whatever the newest discs are) but it didnt work, then it made sense when i found out the specs of the machine. so is there a user friendly linux or a way to crack win 98 se? the box dosent have a "key" sticker on it so no 98 se key.

It should run ubuntu. I had a lower spec'd Pavilion with a P2 300 in it that came with 48 megs of ram. I upgraded the ram and had Mandrake 7 running on it fine.
