Install XP on HP touchsmart tx2

Q: Install XP on HP touchsmart tx2

Hi all,

Does anyone here experience install Win XP Pro on HP touchsmart tx2(downgrade from Vista)? I need some advise. thank you.

A: Install XP on HP touchsmart tx2

I would advise you not to install XP on a touchsmart PC. The reasons are as follows.

1. Make sure all of the drivers are available on the HP Support website.
2. Since XP tablet edition is not available in retail, the touch screen won't work.
3. You will have ask HP to give you a OEM version of XP tablet edition (which I don't think they will provide).

If you just want to use it as a non-Touch screen PC. Go you may go ahead only after you have confirmed that the drivers are available.

Post back if you have any more questions.

Hi I have an all in one hp touch smart 520 pc and I have had it for about 2 years now and it doesn't do well with games and I was wondering if I can install a new better graphics card? if so can you recommend me one ?

thanks
 

A:Can I install a new graphics card on an All in one HP Touchsmart 520 PC?

I did some research and I found this
[
Expansion Slots:
1 PCI Express x16 module socket for MXM graphics card
2 PCI Express x1 mini card sockets
and
One PCI Express x16 Module (MXM) socket
MXM version: Type B
Power source = 19V
UMA or MXM Graphic card not exceeding 35W TDP
That is direct from HP. I asked today, because of your answers, HP support and I got the answer, that a Type II video card shut work as a upgrade on the inglewood motherboard. And don't worry. Bestbuy in Canada will upgrade the card in the store. But thank you anyway!

]
[
Yes, the MOTHERBOARD has those slots, no it is not upgradable after purchase, but good luck with that ]

apperantly the hp touchsmart 520 was never meant for gaming of high caliber and it cannot be upgraded :S

When I installed Microsoft Windows 10, I lost the HP Touchsmart Magic Canvas software and would like to re-install it, if possible. Its the only way I can eject my movies and such and wouldnt mind going back to windows 7 if i had to. I do not have a windows 7 key, and its been more than a month since i installed windows 10, so I am hoping to be able to re-install the Magic canvas software.

A:Re-install touchsmart magic canvas

Hi there @lee123,I hope you find your Support Forum experience a positive one!  It is a great place to find the help you need, from other users, HP experts and other support personnel. I understand that you installed Windows 10, and lost the Magic Canvas software. I am happy to help with this. Did you make a set of recovery media prior to installing Windows 10?When you installed Windows 10, did you install it as an upgrade installation, or as a clean installation?  As it has been more than a month, and if it was an upgrade installation, then roll back is not an option. In both cases the original recovery image is not going to function now. So you will need recovery media.I asked whether it was an upgrade installation, mostly to know if the Magic Canvas software was either removed or did not work after the upgrade. Please let me know.

Hey all,

I have a HP Touchsmart 520 PC.

It has always been on Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit.

It was running a bit sluggish so I stuck in the Windows CD and did a fresh install.

It has now completed and it's on the setup page such as "Keyboard language", "country" e.t.c.

Problem is:

I have no drivers. My mouse is no longer working, my keyboard is no longer working and my touch screen is no longer working.

This means I cannot complete the set up and I'm stuck on that page.

I've tried a wired usb laser mouse and a wired usb keyboard, but neither are "working".

Any help would be brilliant, thanks a lot.

Keyboard and Mouse are working in startup menu e.t.c, just stops working as soon as it gets to the windows screen to set it up.

I've been trying to update my Touchsmart IQ506's video drivers for the Nvidia 9300GS.

This has not been going well, the current drivers I'm trying to install are 186.03_notebook_winvista I've already made sure I'm using the 64bit drivers.

Currently when I check Run As Administrator, the installation screen tells me I'm trying to install 64bit Drivers on a 32bit OS.

but when I don't have Run as administrator, the installation screen tells me that there is no compatible hardware in my computer.

HP's website says the latest drivers are 17x.xx, I'd rather install from the gpu manufacturer, to begin with, because as I've noticed with dell, they don't update the drivers on their site often.

I've tried changing where the drivers extract with no luck.

I'm starting to think that either HP has a driver lock, so you need HP signed drivers to update, or the Touchscreen is interfering with the installation.

I thought all was working but no after few hours and the computer went black again. I tried again F11 and after few days of trying again windows logo came on this time window show that an upgrade was need so I did the upgrade and after reboot the computer did not came back of the black screen. The computer after power up still sound like it starting, if I insert a CD it try to read it, no sure if it does since there is no image.I tried presing F10 to enter in the bios, that did not worked.I try using connect directly USB mouse and key board but that did not worked.Tried to reimage inserting the reimage disk.Since there is no a second port for video I can not use a second display as other blogs recomend. Thanks in advance for your help.

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

Hello, i have a HP TouchSmart computer that i need to reformat badly. I am wondering if reformatting it with any regular vista CD key will lose such features as the touchscreen, wireless mouse & keyboard, built in webcam.

The Original owner of the computer claims it came with its own Vista CD key that he lost.

Hi Jack0000


If the HP restore partition is in good condition (not damaged or malware-ridden), you can perform a re-write of the factory-original hard-disk-image by tapping the F11 as your HP is first powered on, then following the prompts as shown (step-by-step, with screenshots) in the following instructions at the HP support website --- http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/d...=3752240#N1066

Note that you'd first want to move any data that you wish to save off to removable or external media before you run a return to factory original.

Once the factory-original image is restored, you'll have to visit Windows Update to get the Security Updates since the TouchSmart was shipped. You'll want to update the Security software as well (if you need a free alternative, I think "avast! antivirus" is a good choice).

Once the PC is updated and fully protected against malware, you can then create a recovery disk set onto DVDs following the instructions from this HP support webpage --- http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/d...name=c00882383

Having made your own Recovery DVD set allows you the freedom of running the recovery onto a new, blank drive - should you need or wish to upgrade to a new hard drive in the future.

You can, of course, also order Recovery DVDs directly from HP for most models. The price is considerably less than purchasing a Windows license retail. Much less.

Best of luck

I called HP and they told me to run a system quick and extensive check on the hard drive which i have done. Both passed and no errors reported. Another thing that will happen is that the screen will go dark, (typically after idling and when i return and move the mouse or type on keyboard, the screen never lights up again as its supposed to when it is no longer idling.

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

Hi, I need to purchase a new motherboard for my TouchSmart 610.  I've opened up the computer and found that the motherboard installed in the computer is model number DA0ZN8MB6I0 (Part number 648511-001).  While trying to find a place to purchase this mother board, I see that is motherboard is fairly expensive.  While searhing I also found another motherboard, model number DA0ZN9MB6H0 (Part number 648512-001), which is also used in the TouchSmart 610.  Visually this motherboard looks the same at the orignal motherboard and is significanly cheaper.  The part numbers differ by only one digit (before the revisoin number, 001), which makes me think that the two motherboards are very similar. Does anyone know if these two motehrboard are compatiable/interchangeable?  Where can I get information on the difference between these two motherboards? My motherboard has a built in video cards, does anyone know if the second motehrboard does as well?  or will I need to purchase a seperate video card if I were to purchase that motherbaord? Thanks for the help.

I am new to the forum but a long time computer tech. I have been to the forum on various occasions for help on fixing different issues. I have to say this is a great community that helps alot of people including myself. I've ran into an issue that I believe is needing some of you guys expertise.
What I have is a touchsmart laptop from HP that the keyboard and the touchpad mouse quit working. I have searched all over the internet looking for answers and came across a few telling me to pull the battery and AC adapter to reset the computer. I've had no luck on this being a solution. I have read that booting the computer with the touchscreen facing out is what causes this issue.

So I've tried pulling the power and the battery then holding the power button in to drain any residual energy left on the CPU. And upon booting the computer keyboard will respond but only for the menu that states for starting Windows normally or in Safe mode. After letting the computer boot completely the keyboard and touchpad quits working altogether. This is booting it up in safe mode or in normal mode. The laptop is running Windows 7 Home Premium and I believe that this is my only issue. Any help or ideas on what else to troubleshoot will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Hi, I just recently got an Envy All-in-One Touchsmart; it is a super machine and so far, so good. The 10-point touch is really cool, but there are many instances when I would like to be able to use a pen in order to be more precise in my pointing or to "mark up" a document.  I know Microsoft Office has the "inking" feature because I use it on my Laptop with a "pen" while I am traveling and have found it invaluable -- and, by the way this laptop is both touch and pen enabled. I tried to enable "pen" by going to the Control Panel feature that is says says Pen and Touch, but when you do so, it is only for Touch.  How can I make it so that it both touch and pen enabled?  If that is all possible, what type of "pen" do I need? Thank you very much

A:Enabling Pen on TouchSmart

Hi AIResnick, A stylus used on a capacitive touch screen basically just takes the place of your finger, so enabling touch on the computer will enable pen input as well. But it can't just be any pen or stylus, the material at the tip has to be something that will register as touch on the screen, and not scratch it. I read your other post and I understand you're looking for a finer-tipped stylus, rather than the ubiquitous blunt-ended, eraser-type stylus pens. That limits your options quite a bit, because I believe the larger surface area is part of what makes those pens work on capacitive screens. (Other types of touch screens can use other styles of stylus, including pointy-tipped ones in some cases.) I've heard good things about the Jot Pro from Adonit. I haven't tried it, so I can't speak from experience. The design seems clever--it looks like they attached a clear, flat disc to the tip of a metal pen, so you can see precisely where you're writing with the point of the pen, but the clear disc provides enough surface area for the touch to register, and prevents damage to your screen from the sharp pen point. I hope that helps.

Call HP and ask to talk to a manager, then explain what's happened and the number of times you called and that you've had to send it back and demand that they replace the computer with a new one. All-in-Ones are similar to laptops, the repairs are expensive and parts are hard to get, it's best to get the manufacturer to repair or replace it especially under the warranty.

Hello, Our TouchSmart PC will no longer turn on. It was working yesterday but today will not turn on. The LED on the back of the computer where the power supply meets the PC is off. When you press the power button the LED light flickers green one time but remains off. The computer does not power up at all. I have tested the power supply with a laptop and it is working. I have also tried another identical powersupply on the PC but the same thing occurs. Thanks

Good Evening, I have a HP Touchsmart TM2-I can supply the specs if you need them- and it has just started to crash at almost every click/action which I take. THis has only happened within the last couple of days and it has been instant, rather than over time. I did a System Restore but this didn't solve the issue. It may ahve been because I had to stop a disk check last week because my laptop battery died but I'm not sure if that would have such a big effect on the laptops performance.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks a lot
Dan

A:Hp Touchsmart TM2 crashing

That would have a huge effect not finishing a disk check. If you can boot in, Make sure you have your power adapter attached, Go to Start/Search and type CMD Right click the CMD.exe icon in the Search Results and Run As Administrator. In the Command Prompt type chkdsk /R and press enter. Now type a Y and reboot the computer. The Check Disk Utility will try and fix any problems.

My HP touchsmart 520 pc is not booting up and I am looking for support.  Using a multi tester to test the power adapter the adapter reads 17.30v however when i plug the adapter to the computer the light above the power outlet flashes for a split second and disappears. When I unplug the adapter from the back of the computer and checks voltage it reads 0 v (zero volts) . I have to plug it out of the main source and back in so it reads 17.30v again. Once plugged into the computer it immediately drops to zero. I need help to know the source of my problem if it is the adapter or the computer.

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

I was unplugging my power cords and I happened to turn off the power to my HP Touchsmart. Later on when I turned it back on, my HP Touchsmart won't switch on. The lights on the big batter adapter thing is on. The light at the back of the computer indicating that power is reaching the computer is on. However, I just can't turn it on at all. The power button does not light up.I've tried the solutions posted on other threads but nothing has worked. I had just been using my computer the previous day. I suspect that me turning off the main power might have done something.Look forward to getting some solutions.

A:Touchsmart 300 no sound

Did your pc have working sound when new?
Check the volume level, it's easy to turn it right down or mute it.
Check if the speakers are selected by going to the speaker icon in tray near the current time.
Right click on speaker icon, choose 'playback devices'.
A new box appears, with a speaker and it should have a green tick over it.
Right click on the icon and choose the option 'test', you should hear audio tones.
If you don't have a green tick, right click on icon and choose 'enable'.

Hi

I have just bought one of these damaged. The screen is smashed, there is no HDD, RAM, Battery and Power Supply. It also has bad damage to one corner (been dropped from a huge height by the looks) thus damaging lid, palm rest and base. I know RAM and P/S are not a great cost issue but I'm not sure if it is worth buying a new screen and hdd for it. I paid ?42.00 for laptop as it was part of a job lot, and I see they retail at around ?500-?600. Should I fix it up to sell or keep, or just sell it as it is to see if I can make a slight profit?

Hi @markdag, Welcome to the HP Support Forums! It is a great place to find the help you need, from other users, HP experts and other support personnel.I understand that you are looking for information on connecting your Touchsmart  All-in-One to a PS4. I am happy to give you a hand with this. The available connections on Touchsmart and All-in-Ones in general vary from model to model. Some have an HDMI port that can be used as an input, and others do not. Looking at the specifications of the model you gave: HP TouchSmart 600-1350a Desktop PC Product Specifications, it shows in one diagram that it could potentially have video inputs, but it is an option. If your system does not have those, then you would not be able to use the display on the All-in-One with your PS4.   I hope that helps clarify, and if it does resolve your issue, please mark this post as a solution.

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

Hello everyone. I have a so called hybrid laptop HP Pavilion Touchsmart 11-n010dx. It has Windows 8.1 pre installed and I don't like it that much. So I decided to downgrade to Windows 7 Home Premium x64 and faced some problems. I've done Windows installation plenty of times before and that is the first time when it's so tricky. First of all the laptop doesn't have an optical drive so I'm using a flash drive. I set UEFI BIOS to a necessary settings (disabled Secure Boot, enabled Legacy Support). I'm using a 2.0 USB port so that is not a problem. The problem is while installing a message shows up that I need a CD/DVD driver. I made some research and decided that I need motherboard or chipset drivers. I tried it - no result. I think I've tried everything but maybe you guys can help me. Thank you in advance and I hope you'll have some ideas concerning my issue.

Make sure you read the NOTE at Step three.

2) If Using a USB Pen drive on a PC with a UEFI BIOS.

Take note of Step 11 for Windows 7.
Also you will need to use a USB 2.0 port, as there are no USB 3.0 drivers in Windows 7.

In short they will no longer turn on. These computers were all purchased at the same time in late 2012, and now, one by one the stop turning on. I have read other forums where users are experiencing the same issue with this model. It is often suggested that troubleshooting the Power Block / AC Adapter wil help, (see link below) however in this case the steps provided were not relevant. I have tested the power block / AC adapter with computers that still continue to function and they work without questions, however the computers and the little green LED light will not turn on. I have spoken with HP phone support and because these failures occurred outside of the manufactures warranty period it will cost up to $300.00 per machine to identify and potentially fix the machine allow them to turn on. Has anyone identified the root cause of this issues? Can anyone provide steps to fix? Using and Testing the AC Power Adapterwww1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&lc=en&docname=c00363266

First off, i'm going into my 8th hour working on this POS at client's location.

It's an HP Touchsmart 310-1000z touchscreen all in one.

It's a piece of _____. Not the machine itself, but what it has in it designed by HP.

It had 3 trojans and no less than 15 viruses. MBAM found over 500 items, I removed a great majority of them, as well as 5 suspect programs that the owner had not installed but appeared magically.

It was getting OxA IRQL errors, after running sfc /scannow, 2 startup repairs, cleared out all but 3 things in msconfig/startup items, and some other assorted things, i got that to go away, but now on every 3rd or so reboot, I get the 0x1E BSOD. It's very inconsistent, and does not happen in safe mode or safe mode/networking. It only appears in full boot, every 3rd or 4th time.

I figured my last ditch effort would be to do a repair install. So i brought my Win7x64 Ultimate disc from home (computer is home premium) so I could do that.

The recovery partition is all HP crap that overrides the windows recovery tool. I hate it. Basically all it offers is startup repair and system restore and that's it (oh, and no restore points).

When i go to run my DVD, I get a "missing DVD drive or device driver" prompt. The storage protocal is AHCI, and I've gone through seemingly every option under C:/windows/system32/driverstorage relating to ahci, non-raid storage, and cdrom. None have worked.

I have no idea which one suits for the driver - maybe update all of it with the HP page I suggested.

So one of the Civilian guys i work with has an HP Pavilion Touchsmart with Windows 8 installed and he overheard me talking to someone about my ability to wipe a computer and clean-install windows 7. He asked if i could do it on his new HP since he basically refuses to use it because of 8 and can't take it back...I've done a lil bit of research about this PC and i guess it wasnt offered in a 7 variant (at least i cant find it) and i read a few articles about downgrading only being possible on Windows 8 *PRO* machines.

I've tried the conventional boot from flash drive with Windows 7 install files, and try to install but it says it cannot do it because the partition style is GPT...and i have no earthly clue what that is...it's new to me. I've wiped and clean installed windows 7 on countless computers now...even one that had windows 8 on it that was an HP...but for some reason this one is extra tricky.

Any body have any Tips or Tricks, links or anything that can help guide in the right direction to getting 8 off this thing and putting 7 on it? It has to be possible...like i said, i've done countless computers now and havent failed yet...but this one has me scratching my head...HARD!!!

EDIT: Wanted to post up the exact product specs for future use

I reset my computer after I tried downloading an application off a torrent to get a more practical understanding of Python (curse you, darned torrents). After it came with a metric crapton of adware and associated junk, I reset my computer through Settings on Windows 10. After that, it said it couldn't reset properly and I had tried resetting again and it led me back to the same place. Then I think I clicked the restart anyway or some equivalent button and it keeps cycling through the HP logo and turning pitch black. I have no regard of the files on my computer so recovering them is not a priority.

Hi, I beleive your computer got infected.. You've mention that you tried performing RESET? How?.If your computer keeps on a boot loop process, What you can do is try to perform a Hard reset. ?Turn the computer off?Take out the charger and the battery?Press and hold the power button for 10-15 secs while the battery and charger is unplug?Then plug the charger back in and turn your computer on without the battery "Check if the boot loop will reoccur" Whether the boot loop reoccurs or not resetting the computer will be the best resolution cuz taking the virus manually will take sometime. Reset the computer via start menu ?Turn your computer back on and keep tapping ESC?Start menu will pop up, Click F11 to load up Recovery Manager?Click Troubleshoot then click RESET Note: Reset will take time 3-4 hours depending on how big the files you have on your computer.

I've had my Touchsmart for 2 or 3 years now and have always used it with Google Photos (Picasa) to edit and upload. I initially used a Canon EOS 400D and a couple of years ago upgraded to a 7D. All have been working fine.

Last week I returned from holiday with around 1,000 photos on my camera and plugged the cable from my Touchsmart into the camera as normal, but, it didn't recognise the camera. It did make the little noise that a device makes when plugging something into a USB port, but would not see the camera. I looked in device manager to see if any flags were showing ofr USB issues, none were.

I restarted the Touchsmart, still the same. I removed the two external HDD's so that the camera was the only thing connected, still the same , I tried the cable from the camera in all 6 USB ports, the same. I tried another cable, the same. I then tried a card reader with the CF card in it, initially the same. Then I had odd problems with the PC recognising it as an external drive but showing some odd characters in the view, but as soon as I tried to access it the drive disappeared.

I looked to see if there was a specific driver for the 7D but there was not, so I downloaded the Canon EOS utility s/w and tried to see if that recognised the camera but it didn't.

I then popped the CF card back into the camera to find that the camera was now showing the card as blank; you can imagine how I felt thinking that I'd lost 7 days of holiday photos! I tried it back on the Touchsmart a... Read more

A:Camera not recognised on HP Touchsmart

Hello and welcome botty mate have you tried using a different cable to plug the camera into the machine. Now I ask because maybe the port/s you are plugging it into may not be making very good contact at the connection.

The other suggestion I might make is to use an adaptor to plug that card into the machine much the same way as I do with the SD cards I use with my cameras. this would avoid having to lug the camera in at all and avoid anything glitches that are or maybe going on between camera and machine.

From experience most of the large manufacturers ie HP and as recently with myself - Asus the support is pretty weak if and when you can get through.

Just for the record a Google shows me this type of card is now quite old and I am sure an SD one would be better if it fits because as you say as soon as you plug that card into the machine it goes blank for what reason I am not sure.

Now you could try running these just in case the Windows system is out of whack

I'm having a heckuva time upgrading the RAM on this machine. For starters, I attempted a RAM upgrade several months to a year ago. I went to HP Customer Support product page to learn what kind of RAM I needed, and how much the maximum was. It doesn't appear the RAM info on the product page is correct, because I ordered what I thought was EXACTLY what I needed and when it arrived and I took the machine apart to install the RAM I discovered there was NO WAY what I bought was going to fit. The product page says the machine has PC3-10600 DDR3-1333 RAM installed. What I bought was PC3-10600 DDR3-1333mhz 240 pin DIMM desktop RAM. It appears the rub is desktop RAM vs. laptop RAM. HP's product page doesn't specify the Touchsmart 310 uses laptop RAM, or at least what I suspect is laptop RAM. The installed RAM is small (SODIMM?) where the RAM I bought to upgrade is large "stick" RAM. The RAM that is currently installed in the machine has a sticker on it that reads "1RX8 PC3-10600S-9-10-B1". I just need to know without a doubt what to buy to do the RAM upgrade, because the machines performance is poor, returning mailorder items are a hassle and I don't necessarily enjoy tearing apart my computer for essentially no reason. To add insult to injury, after I realized the mailorder RAM wasn't going to fit, I put the computer back together without writing down the specs of the installed RAM to attempt to resolve the dilemma, so I had to tear the machine apart today (and put it back together) ...

I have 5 PCs. Wired & wireless. All on same Workgroup. Have 2 HP Touchsmart ALL-In-One units an Acer AX1470, an Acer R13, & a Lenovo Yoga. All running Windows 10 Build 1511. I am able to PING all machines from each other. The AX1470 sees all PCs under Network. The other 4 units cannot see either Touchsmart. I tried to explain the relationship in the attached file. I use the Windows Firewall and it makes no difference if the Firewall is ON or OFF. Right now the AX1470 is my main machine and all files are on it. I periodically copy files to the 4 other PCs just to have a copy and when I am working on one of the 4 I need to access the files on the AX1470. I am using it like a file server and working PC.

Any Ideas how to make the Touchsmart units visable?

Hi, I have a hp touchsmart tm2 2050ea, it used a hybrid Intel (power saver gpu/don't know what its called) and an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5450.

when I installed windows 8 it kept the Intel drivers but removed the ATI ones, so I went to AMD's website and downloaded the drivers for windows 8 after I installed them it asked me to restart so I did. After I restarted it I realised that it had forgot that I had wireless internet and when I tried to fix that more programs messed up, I tried to repair the AMD drivers and nothing changed so I uninstalled them, restarted it then it worked fine again.

it use to have a thing when I right clicked the screen about switchable graphics and I was wondering if there is something out there for my laptop I have looked on hp site and amd's but can't find anything can someone help ?

thanks ��

Product: HP Pavilion Touchsmart 15-n090saI received a HP Touchsmart as a christmas present. I set this up on Xmas day and used it for the second time yesterday, on opening the lid (pulling up on the lid in the middle) I heard a cracking noise. Once I had the lid fully open I was presented with a number of large cracks starting at the top of the screen going down the middle towards the bottom of the screen. Now as you can imagine I was rather shocked as I have mentioned this is only the second time I have used the laptop.I could understand if I had dropped the laptop etc, but I haven't. There is no damage to the laptop outer casing (top, bottom etc it still has all the cellophane around the laptop that it is covered in during transit).. My only thought was there must have been some sort of manufacturing defect in the screen or maybe a small hair line crack before I started to use the laptop.So I first of all I approached the vendor where I purchased the device from, they advised me to contact the manufacture (HP).. I spoke to an HP Technical Support agent, described what had happened with the laptop advising that it had only been purchased on the 14/12/2013. The agent proceeded to advise me that the manufactures warranty doesn't cover accidental damage, ok fair enough I thought I haven't accidentally damaged it (unless opening the lid of the laptop could be classed within this category). I advised that I haven't damaged the laptop, there's no mark on it (to be fair if I had da... Read more

A:Hp Touchsmart 15 - Damaged Screen

Same story happened to me. We took it back to Best Buy and because they thought I caused the damage, didn't help us. (This being only two weeks after purchasing.) Just got off the phone with HP and of course they cannot stand behind their products. So now I have a very expensive paper weight while my homework is piling up. I asked to simply speak to a Supervisor and every single supervisor happened to be in a meeting. In my opinion, it is not very conducive to work productivity to have all managers out at the same time. I even stated that I found this forum with others who have had the same issue on the HP site, making this a known defect. No one had seen this on the website. I want to make it acknowledged that I went out of my way to find myself a HP laptop. I have had their products before and have some now with NO problems what so ever. So, thinking that this is a company that stands behind their well-made products, I made it my mission to only consider HP computers. I am now feeling that mistake?.
