HP EliteBook 6930p :: WiFi Is Not Working After Creating System Image
Dec 9, 2014
I recently created an image of a hp elitebook 6930p and cloned it to another when I noticed that the wifi doesn't work (although it was working some point before I starting imaging). If I use an ethernet connection, internet works fine.
I'm running windows 7 64 bit enterprise on them.
I have quite a few of these and I installed a fresh windows os on one and there's no problem with the wifi.
I tried looking online for a solution and two came up:vtouch the wifi quick panel "button": while the information, volume quick buttons work, the wifi doesn'treset to default settings in the bios: unfortunately, these laptops were donated to us and there's a password on the bios. I tried entering nothing. I'm afraid to push it anymore in case there's an anti-theft measure on too many failed passwords vWhat else can I do to fix this issue?
I wanted to upgrade my ram in my 6930p Right now I have to temp ram 2gb 667mhz. I want to upgrade to a 800mhz but I don't know how much I should get I wanted 8gb but I'm not going to play much hard core games so this might be to much.
What do you consider to be the best overall memory needed for games and App.
I'm aiming to buy a new HP EliteBook 6930p in January 2010. There are a few issues that I've read about which concern me, however.
Some of these I have read have been fixed, although I haven't seen much in the way of confirmation of this. So I'm wondering, of these, have any been fixed in the latest production models of the 6930p?
1) The lid takes too much pressure to shut and/or doesn't stay shut.
2) The battery is loose when attached (any danger of it falling off?)
3) CPU whine -- I'm planning on getting it with a P8800 and ATI HD 3450 256MB, if that matters.
I just swap out the the motherboard for a working one and change all the components inside and the monitor don't power on. All the lights show the fan spins but no picture. Before I did the motherboard swap the same thing happen. The shop I took it to said it needed a discharge from the build up over time. After the unfix-able corrupt bios problem I was force to swap boards. How do I do the static discharge? I ground myself with a steel pipe took apart everything put it back together still the same.
After some virus problems I set up my system from the scratch, formatting the hard drive and reinstalling Windows. I also downloaded the Lenovo System Updater, installed all updates and downloaded the ThinkVantage Solution Center. Now, the PC works again BUT the WiFi adapter does not work. It seems to be non-existent, if I press F9 it says I am suppossed to press the hardware switch. I have a ThinkPad Edge 15, it does not have such a switch at all.
In the hardware manager i find one network device without driver, so I suppose this is it. However, no driver seems to work. I downloaded the WiFi dirver(s) from the Lenovo website and installed them, nothing happens. What can I do?
Here are my specifications: -Thinkpad Edge 15 -Windows 7 Home Premium (OEM) - the driver I installed which did not work: Intel Wireless LAN (bg, abg, abgn) for Windows 7 (32-bit, 64-bit), XP - ThinkPad
I am pretty certain that the hardware works, before I set uo the system WiFi was not at all a problem.
I just purchased a new Pavilion m7-1015dx Laptop and need to make the System Recovery Discs ... (which I realize restores the Laptop to factory default).. btw, I've already created the System Repair Disc.
However, I read an article about creating a System Backup Image that allows you to Recovery EVERYTHING if lost, all your installed programs, etc.
First Question ::: if I do the System Backup IMAGE ... Do I still need to create the System Recovery disc's (mfg's default) also??
The Second Question ::: If I create the System Recovery discs do I still need that Recovery Partition ??
I am really really wanting to partition my C: drive ... it's huge plus I hate seeing storage folders intermingled with system folders .. Currently using a Symbol/Character to separate them.
As of now, I can't partition the C:drive as all partitions are used.. max is 4 and I've got 4 .... C:drive, System Partition, HPTools Partition, and Recovery Partition.
I'm used to using Windows Backup to create a system image, in case I have a hard drive failure, so I can return my computer to a certain state.
I have not been able to create a system image on my 15Z with Windows Backup - it fails every time. So I purchased Acronis True Image 2013, but I don't know which partitions to back up to get the equivalent of a system image in Windows Backup.
I have a problem with my wifi. The button is always appearing orange, and nothing happens when I press it: no errors, no messages, no reaction at all. Therefore I cannot use wifi connection.
The laptop is kinda new: I am using it for only 2 months.
1. Product Name and Number HP EliteBook 8560pНР LQ589AW
2. Operating System installed (if applicable) Windows 7 Professional 64 bit
3. Error message (if any) No error messages
4. Any changes made to your system before the issue occurred
My windows crashed and I recovered it from the archive created a couple days prior to that. Archive included all hard drives data, so system was restored exactly as it was prior to the crash. I am still not sure if this caused the problem (or if the problem appeared after that): it happened a month ago, and I didn't have WiFi available back then, and only tried to turn it on a couple days ago.
Additional details: In device manager wireless card is showing up as working normally. In adapter management wireless connection is turned on but says "no connection available". If I run the diagnostics, it asks me to turn on WIFI with a button on my laptop, which I cannot do. In mobility center it says "wireless connection is turned off". Turn on button is gray, and impossible to click on.
Things I already tried: Reinstalled all HP drivers from the original CD;Removed WiFi card in windows device manager (deleted the device), restarted windows, installed new drivers for it, restarted again;Checked mobility center as was suggested in one of the threads found on this forum;Made a hard reset for HP laptop (removed battery, pressed on/off button for full minute).
I used a Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit installation DVD to replace Windows 7 Professional 64-bit on my Elitebook 8740w. In the end, I used a clean installation as the upgrade option ended up with a fail error. However, after doing the clean install, it can't detect any wifi. What drivers am I likely to need to download and re-install?
My HP elite book 8460p will not get online , but the WiFi connection shows up fine. I am aware that I am missing three drivers in the "other" devices section.. I believe those might be the reason but I'm not sure and because I can't connect the PC to internet I have to download them manually from another laptop to a flash drive but I can't find any direct downloads without getting driver set up or driver restore.. The drivers missing are, base system device, universal serial bus (usb) &, unknown device.
When I go into the Control Panel and try to make system image backup on external hard drive get message saying backup failure. Have tried several times. External backup works fine for other things. How to do this?
I have previously done a system image of to T500 OS and everything. The T500 is on it's last leg. I received a T540P as a replacement but I want to migrate the T500 system Image to be restored on my T540P.
I know it's doable because I have done it BUT the problem is, I think the downloads. It seems when I go to update software after the image is done the T540P downloads. (the Lenovo PM, Graphics and Display drivers) when the reboot happens I get to the Startng Windows screen and the 4 bubbles coming together and then pulses. But it always says there. It at least, I stopped it after like a 30 minutes.
I have a HP Elitebook 8440p Notebook PC with Windows 7, 64 bit. I had to reinstall Windows 7 and all the necessary drivers. My remaining issue is the Missing Base System Driver. The message I get from Device Manager is:
PC1 bus 68, device 6, function 2. The driver for this device are not installed (Code 28).
My laptop model is HP Elite Book 8400p.I can't boot the system.In system diagnostics, it gives start up test,run in test,hard disk test as failure...Reason shown is "Test(quick).....Error:Read failure Error:Read failure".. How can I solve this?
After doing a fresh install of windows 7 Professional 32Bit, my wifi drivers did not install, i have tried numerous drivers of the website for my laptop and they don't work, ive tried many things but cant seem to find the right drivers, my laptop is a HP Elitebook 2530p, can find the correct drivers for my wifi Card?
So as soon as I got my brand new Y50-70, and before doing anything on this laptop (not even installing new software), I went tried OneKey Recovery only to discover that it is broken.
I then tried my luck with Windows Recovery (the one provided with every Windows 8.1 copy, not unique to Lenovo):
I first went through system image creation on a recovery drive (1TB WD Elements USB HDD):
1. Find it on Control Panel: 2: Select it (Recovery option): 3. Create a recovery drive: 4. Selected the F: drive (1TB, it's not a *flash* drive just an ordinary USB hdd, does it matter?): 5. Got a nice warning (indeed, this process reformatted the drive, to 32GB only, why 32GB and not the full 1TB?)
Now... let's see if I can restore from this newly created system image:
1. Rebooted from the newly created Recovery Drive (it actually boots!): 2. Selected "Use a device", then received this menu: 3. I selected EFI USB Device. It then went to an intermediate Lenovo boot splash: 4. And shortly after that (without me doing anything) a new prompt, to choose a language: 5. I selected English and then, got prompted for keyboard layout: 6. The system then system to restart again from the Recovery Drive, only to prompt me again with the "Choose an Option" screen (as in step #1). So, I selected "Troubleshoot" this time: 7. I then selected "Advanced options", and received this screen: 8. I then selected System Image Recoery and received this screen: 9. I selected the only option available (Windows 8.1), then got this "Cannot find system image": 10. Why??? I clicked cancel and I was prompted to select an image: 11. So I clicked Next, but got nothing to select: 12. Clicking the Advanced button only provides irrelevant options:
After upgrade to Window 8.1 PRO I seeC: 932 GBD: 28 GB -listed as recovery. I want to save system image backup Currently to create system image backup I have only option to create image on external drive or on D:
1. Is possible without reinstalling windows create new partion E: in order backup system images to it? If yes how create new partition in win.8.1?
2. if partion E: will contain system image(s) can I boot from usb recovery disk and choose restore from one of system images located on E:
3. If for some reasons I want to reinstall OS from set of recovery DVD(s) to factory setting what is going to happen with partion E:
I bought my Elitebook 8560p a few weeks back off of a friend. Wiped the entire laptop clean and installed a new OS (Windows 7 Ultimate 32 Bit). I thought I installed all the drivers, but the device manager says im still missing a "Base System Device" driver.
I have several HP 8530p and I getting the num lock & cap lock leds blinking 5 times which indicates a general system board error. Bought new boards still getting the same issue. Note all the units will boot to windows fine, but there is a 10-15 sec delay in hard drive response when operating pc. The mouse is real time responsive but once you clink on a item the lag shows up. What to look for as the problem, CPU , Memory changed, Fans, Cooling system. Bios versions have been updated, I've torn the unit down, cleaned and added new thermal paste to CPU, GPU and added copper shims to promote better heat transfer. The system Diagnostics indicates hardware is ok.
I suddenly found my touchpad is not working. It was working normally last night.
Machine: HP ELITEBOOK 8570W OS: Windows 8.1 64-bit ver
Its current state is: no respond upon touching it; double-touching up the upper left courner also no response(if it's working normally, the little light will light up AND THEN the touchpad will stop working coresspondingly.)I have tried following methods:
-Restart the computer; -Reinstall the touchpad's driver to initial state; -Update the touchpad's driver to latest version; -Download the sp51647 driver, install it(failed);
In Device Manager, I can still see the Synaptics SMBus TouchPad under the Mouse and Other Pointer Devices category. The manager says the touch-pad is working normally. What I suspect to be the reason is that, this morning I started the laptop without connecting the AC adapter but only on battery and the voltage is too low for the touchpad to function normally.
Recently purchased a refurb HP Elitebook 8440p, and noticed that even though the mute button works the quick key just above the keyboard is always orange. Is there a way for me to correct this so it shows orange only when muted and green when not muted?
The 720p webcam in my new Edge E430 (I just got it last Thursday) is not working properly. When I use the Communications Utility or Skype, the green light next to the webcam turns on, but the image window only shows a completely black image. Also, when I increase the brightness or contrast settings of the webcam, the image becomes completely gray or completely white.
The Device Manager shows two devices - the "Integrated Camera" and the "Virtual Camera." I have already tried uninstalling/reinstalling the webcam drivers, but that hasn't worked. What else can I do?
I recently received a new laptop at work (a few of us have) and we are all having the same issue with this laptop. The function keys F8 and F9, which are labeled to control screen brightness, are not working. I have searched many forums and I cannot find a fix.
