HP/Compaq :: Windows 7 Install ErrorHP Envy 15

May 4, 2010

I downloaded and burned an ISO Win7 install file (legal, I am using a purchased key to register it), and wanted to do a clean install of Windows 7 without all the HP Bloatware crap like the sticky at the top of this forum suggests.... and when the install is done its first restart, and is on the Completing installation... phase the second time, it gives me a:

"Windows setup could not configure windows to run on this computers hardware".

Are you serious?

Does anyone have a fix for this please. I now have an inoperable, and un-installable brand new laptop. Sweet.

I am installing it via the USB DVD Drive, through a DVD (Not even a USB flash drive problem!). I have tried it twice now and it failed both times. I even tried reseting the BIOS settings to default.

It's obviously a glitch in something, because I was running Win7 on the laptop this afternoon.

HP/Compaq :: Clean Install Gen2 Envy 15 With I5-420m 3dmark Result. Under 3.5k

Mar 22, 2010

it's weird because I'm running Dawn of War 2 and Starcraft 2 in native resolution with max settings (water effect set to mid in Dawn of War 2)

The amd GPU overclock tool is also telling me that the default clock speed is 99/199

I'm guessing it's driver issues but i have no friggen clue. I installed the latest drivers and updated everything that needed to be updated.

HP OS/Software :: Envy 15t-j000 / Updates Will Not Install

Nov 17, 2014

I attempt to download the HP Updates via HP Support Assistant, but they fail to install. They download okay, but they don't install. In fact, on a couple they open an install window and go to 100% but then pause and give me an x instead of the green checkmark. (And what is really strange is that the audio driver gave me the checkmark but after restarting says it still needs to be updated).

I have tried the updates several times, and I have restarted as well. Nothing seems to work.
 
Here are the updates that won't install:
 
IDT High-Definition (HD) Audio Driver
Intel High-Definition (HD) Graphics Driver
Intel Chipset Installation Utility and Driver
Synaptics TouchPad Driver
HP SimplePass Identity Protection Software
Realtek RTL8188EE 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Driver for Microsoft Windows

HP Envy TS M6 OS/Software :: Can't Install Windows 8.1 Update On SleekBook

Dec 26, 2013

I have all current drivers and software.  It came with Windows 8 and I am trying to install 8.1.  It does well until the restart.  I do the restart and it gets part way through and the screen goes dark and hours later the screen is still dark.  I press the power button and it says something like :Trying to recover install" and from there on nothing happens.  I finally end up having to go back to windows 8.

HP Envy 17 3277nr OS/Software :: Unable To Boot And Install Windows 8.1 From DVD

May 14, 2014

I have an ENVY 17 (3277nr) with windows 8.1 in it but I'm unable to update it since several months ago so I decided to reinstall the OS so I went to the windows site that lets you download an ISO image of windows 8.1 to burn it into a disc (right now I dont have a 4gb usb at hand but is also possible).
 
I already burned the disc by right clicking the ISO and selecting 'burn disc image' and changed the boot options but every time I turn on my computer all I see is a single underscore and then the regular windows 8 boot screen.
 
I already visited wbesites in this regard and I've read things like the windows 8 UEFI thing (not on my laptop since I've upgraded from w7) and the security settings on the BIOS but none of them seem to fix the problem.
 
Additional details:
 
Oddly, when trying to open the burned dvd it only says 4.37gb out of 4.37gb, do you think my dvd drive might be damaged?

HP Envy M6-n113dx Networking :: Bluetooth Not Working With Fresh OS Install?

Nov 24, 2014

I purchased the HP ENVY m6-n113dx laptop from Best Buy and a 240gb SATA III SSD. When I re-installed the OS from a previous license that I owned for Windows 8.1 Pro x64, I could no longer get the Bluetooth radio working. The Qualcomm Drivers work great, or at least Windows doesn't find anything wrong with them.  I did not format the original hard drive that came with the laptop so I replaced it to see if the bluetooth radio was working on a previous Windows 8.1 installation to find that it works great. 
 
The drivers that were installed on the working OS are the same drivers as the replacement OS.  The radio works with the previous OS, but not with the new OS.  The only difference that I can tell is in the BIOS settings where I disabled the "Security" option regarding the HP Secure Keys.

HP Envy 15t-3200 Display :: Blue Screen After Graphics Install

Nov 11, 2014

I'm an IT professional working on a client's HP Envy 15t-3200 notebook PC (Win 7 x64, Intel i7, AMD 7700 series)
 
He said (he thinks) after installing a recent windows update, it started blue screening on him with a graphics error.
He restored his PC to factory install, and it was working fine until he installed windows updates and the graphics drivers again, receiving the same blue screen graphics error.
 
I picked up his laptop. I installed a slipstream of windows 7 that I created. Everything worked fine - as soon as I installed his graphics drivers.
 
First, I had installed the AMD drivers (from AMD, not HP). I thought everything was working fine, until I checked the device manager and saw that the AMD graphics were being disabled, and the laptop was reverting to the generic graphics driver. I also tried the older driver offered on HPs support page.

I uninstalled the AMD graphics, and installed the Intel graphics. As soon as they were installed, upon restarting I received the same original blue screen error and had to result in booting to safe mode and performing system restore.
 
When I install the AMD graphics without installing Intel graphics, it reverts itself to Generic graphics. The AMD graphics adapter shows a Code 43 in the device manager, stating that the device has stopped working because it has reported problems.
 
I played around with different versions of AMD graphics which did not resolve the issue, and I installed different versions of the Intel graphics, which still caused a blue screen.
 
The PC is working ONLY with the generic graphics drivers, which doesn't work for what my client wants to be able to do (gaming).
 
I found this - [URL] ..... on the troubleshooting page for this notebook, and tried using this solution which also did not resolve the issue.
 
I've checked temperatures of the laptop and nothing is anywhere near overheating.

HP Envy Dv7-7230us OS/Software :: Can't Download And Install FREE Windows 8.1 Upgrade

Jun 24, 2014

I attempted to upgrade my Win 8.1 ENVY DV7-7230US laptop to Win 8.1 via the App store. It said I had to clear all the updates first. So I went the System Updates Screen. When I clicked on it to see what updates were needed. The circling wait symbol appeared and never went away. I can not do any system updates, thus I can not download and install the FREE Win8.1 upgrade.

HP Envy 15 J002er Audio :: Can't Install IDT High Definition Audio Codec On Windows 7

Jun 28, 2014

I have HP envy 15 j002er laptop. Originally I got it with Windows 8 but then I changed operation system to Windows 7 Pofessional (64-bit).I can`t install IDT high definition audio codec on it. I guess that is the reason why I don`t have and I can`t use Beats Audio interface on my laptop (only speakers are working). There are no audio drivers for Windows 7 available for download on HP website. When I`m cheking for driver updates via HP support, it proposes me only updates for Chipset, Graphics, Network, etc.And no Audio Driver..How can I solve it and install IDT high definition audio codec?

I've got a great offer for buying a used 1st generation Envy 15, dirt cheap.

However, I was wondering if heat management and battery life has improved with driver- and BIOS updates over time.

In short, has any of the points of criticism that the Envy originally received been improved with driver and BIOS updates?

HP/Compaq :: Envy 14 Or 15

May 28, 2010

I'm shopping for laptops right now and I'm pretty much stuck between these two. My main question for the 14 is will it be able to do full hd? I know 1920x1080 is a bit much to ask for on a 14.5" screen but I haven't been able to find a solid answer for this question. The 14 has more features and the internal cd drive is a plus, but not a dealbreaker for the 15 since the cd drive isn't used too much. Taking out price, which one would be a better buy?

HP/Compaq :: Envy V2

Feb 13, 2010

I have a couple of questions about the Envy v2. I'm certain the answers are somewhere in the massive owner's thread but it's way too long to want to go through at this point.

My questions are:

1) Audio quality of external speakers. Is there enough bass in them? Do they sound "tin-y"?

2) Noise from the fan when the GPU is in high use. How loud is the fan? Has anyone put a decibel meter to it?

3) Temp of the GPU. My Studio 15 is hitting a high of 70c when running and was wondering how the newer ATI is.

HP/Compaq :: HP Envy 15 G2

Apr 11, 2010

The first I heard about the Envy line was that it was a gorgeous laptop with a great display and above-average speakers. However, it was fundamentally flawed with a horrible trackpad and overheating issues(present in the 13, but further aggravated in the 15). After the spectacular fail of a release, I dropped the Envy out of consideration.

To the present, I've recently started looking at a huge array of laptops and have taken the Envy into consideration again. From what I've heard, the Envy 15 is in its second generation(I need a full-HD laptop and won't be considering the Envy 13). It now comes equipped with a i5 processor and the HD5830.............
