HP Envy 1400 OS/Software :: SleekBook Keeps Dropping WiFi Constantly?
Mar 22, 2014
Called tech support about this problem 18MR14. They did not fix the problem. I cannot stay connected to wi-fi with this envy 1400 even thought my Ipad, Iphone and other computer stay connected. I also have a problem with my printer showing as offline with this computer. I have about had it with this computer. Has windows 8.1
I just got my new HP ENVY laptop. Product Name: m6-k025dx. It runs on Windows 8 64-bit. I am experiencing sudden, frequent loss of my Wifi connection. When it gets disconnected I don't even get the Connect To slider (which slides from the right side of the screen and shows the list of networks) on clicking the network button at bottom right corner of the screen. I need to restart my laptop to get connected again and after 5-7 minutes, I lose it again.
editing the Power Plan to maximum performance and unchecking "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" but nothing seems to work.
The network driver is Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230. I have also updated the driver and turned off Bluetooth and ethernet
I am getting intermittently dropped wifi connection. It is a new/nearly new xps 12 convertible from the Dell outlet store a couple of months ago. I have installed all windows updates including win 8.1. My network adapter is an Intel Dual band wireless AC-7260 #2. I searched on the intel site using the auto driver function and it cannot find any new drivers there for it.
I have also set the wifi adapter to "maximum performance" whether on battery or plugged in and it happens anyway (even when plugged into AC).Is there anything I can do for this or does a technician need to replace the wifi card (or do I need to RMA the notebook)?
I just got a brand new HP Envy. However, i have not been able to maintain a wifi connection. Usually it will not connect to my wifi or will only connect for a few minutes and then say 'limited' and then not connect at all. I did the full windows updates for the computer. I updated the drivers for the wifi adapter. I updated the firmware to my router. I also uninstalled norton. None of these have worked, still will not connect or will connect and drop within a few minutes. My system information is as follows:
My wifi router information is: Netgear N150 model WPN824N Channel is set to auto Mode: up to 150 MB per Second Security: WPA2/PSK [AES]
I have two ipads, two iphones, an xbox, a windows phone, two toshiba laptops, and one hp pavillion DM3 that are able to connect and maintain wifi connection with no problem (not all connected at the some time necessarily-it is not an overloading problem). The network is running fine, i just cannot figure out what the problem is with this HP Envy.
I've had an HP Laptop Pavilion g6 for around a year, operating on Windows 8.1
I'm repreatedly (and increasingly) losing wifi connection to router - all other devices using the same wifi connection (desktop pc, nexus phone, samsung phone) all retain connection and internet access but the Pavilion keeps dropping off.
My daughter has a HP Split 13-m111sa x2 notebook/tablet. She got it in March of this yearand it is currently running Win 8.1 OS with updates applied.
The problem/symptoms are this: - The WiFi connection she uses both at home and school is dropping after about 5 mins after connection. It is happening with different WiFi connections both secure and open requiring login (eg BT WiFi hot spots).
Steps/action taken so far:- Removed known networks and re-joined Performed IPCONFIG /flush on device Provided static IP address to WiFi at home, different to the one supplied by the router but in the same range.
On my new X1 Carbon, with a new Netgear R8000 router, The X1 will not hold a wifi connection, even 3 feet from the router. There is plenty of signal strength on all 3 channels. It connects for a while, but then the icon turns to "limited", and I have no internet connection. It works with my older Netgear WNDR 4500. Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector sees the three channels with plenty of signal, but will not plot them. I even tried reducing the maximum rate to 289 Mbps, and it still will not maintain a 5 GHz connection.
I have problem a with my Switch 10. The internet connection drops frequently. It is followed by the signal strength icon showing 'Limited'. I then turn off WI-FI and turn back on and it does not recognize any networks at all. I then go into network settings, run the troubleshooter and it does its stuff, re-setting the network adapter, and then informs me that it could not find an issue. After resetting the adapter it works fine again.I have tried uninstalling and installing latest drivers but the problem persists. The problem lies within the adapter itself or the driver.
My adapter shows as being REALTEK and i read on here of similar problems with the Broadcom adapter, which makes me think that the driver is causing the problem. Someone suggested that the Bluetooth was causing a conflict, so I removed bluetooth and it made no difference. (I have re-installed bluetooth. All drivers are latest ones.My switch is not a month old yet and this happens a couple of times a day. and am close to returning the product. I like it, but cannot put up with such an important issue as the internet randomly dropping.
I reinstalled Vista 64-bit Business on my laptop. And I've installed all of the drivers which are working, but my wifi drops out every 20-30 minutes. I've done some research and found this isn't uncommon...
so I installed the lastest Intel drivers, disabled all of the power saving features on my wifi card/DCP.
But, it still disconnects! What the heck!? I might have had this same issue in Windows 7, but I can't really remember. All I know is that when I tried to back it up using WHS, it would always fail.
I am having problems with my Wifi on my HP Pavilion Sleekbook 15 (Product number: D2H26EA#ABD)I updated from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 and as well as Qualcomm Atheros QCA9000 Series Wireless LAN Driver for Microsoft Windows by the suggestion of Hp support Assistance. After that started facing Wifi problems. Initially on starting laptop, Wifi get connected automatically.. But after 5-10 minutes it shows LIMITED Connectivity. After few seconds or minuts later get connection again or When I turn ON Flight mode and then OFF it, it gets back to full connection.But, after sometime it goes back to LIMITED. This keeps on happening.I've tried installing various versions of Broadcom & Intel WLAN Adapter Drivers!. Still no success!While writing this post Wifi went into limited connectivity once!
The Wifi on this laptop keeps either dropping connection, or changing to a "limited" network. Sometimes it works fine, but more often than not it drops out. All other wifi enabled devices in my house work fine, so I know it's not the internet. I've also tested on two other networks where the same dropping out occurs.

I got my son this laptop for xmas and immediately tried to upgrade to Windows 8.1 and the screen went blank. I restored the laptop after alot of effort and haven't tried updating it since....with the new Windows 8.1 update coming out April 8, and any fixes to HP drivers, does the upgrade process will now work?
I have an "HP ENVY TouchSmart Sleekbook 4-1115dx" laptop that is about two weeks past warranty and the screen went blank. I currently have an old crt monitor hooked up to it and everyting works fine with the machine -- just cant see the screen. Will i need to replace the entire display or can i just replace the chord/ribbon from the display thru the hinges to the main unit?
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.
My friend pulled a prank on me by changing my password on my laptop. He changed the user name to a fake email address so retreiving the password is impossible and would you believe he forgot the password. How do I do a reset? Also, this laptop has no disc capabilities. Ive been told Ill have to open up the back of the computer, remove the 'watch' battery and RAM sticks while pressing power, then replace everything. Sounds simple, but i know very little about computers, beyond basic user software.

I have a HP ENVY TouchSmart m6-k025dx Sleekbook (ENERGY STAR)
From a cold state ( computer been off for a more then hour). I need to press the power button twice, Frist press the power button lights and the wireless lights and the screen activate with a glow, then black no lights and black screen press power button again and boots normally and fine No error or warnings
This does not seem to be normal and I can not remember the last time it booted from the first power button push.
Laptop is only 9 months old. I did all of the updates and then my touchscreen stopped working - that was 4 days ago. Today I did a system restore to the point before the 1st critical update (9/24/14). It still does not work. Did it corrupt my driver? And if so, what is the name of the driver? How can I restore the touch screen...

I just received a refurbished HP ENVY TouchSmart m6-k125dx Sleekbook. I can't set a resolution higher than 1366 x 768 though according to specs the native resolution is 1920 x 1080. I updated the Intel HD graphic driver and the BIOS but that did not work. Did HP possibly reinstall a wrong display as part of the refurbish?

AHCI is currently disabled on my computer and I wish to enable it to get the most performance out of it. It can easily be enabled via the windows registry but to get it working i need to be sure that AHCI is currently enabled in the BIOS aswell. When I enter the BIOS there just isnt any advanced options available, only time and date and other basics. How do i find out wether or not AHCI is enabled in the BIOS? How do i get access to the advanced options in the BIOS to turn on AHCI (if it isnt already enabled that is)?
Dell is sending me a new unit as replacement to my faulty Dell 1400.
I had the = discrete nvidia graphics option along with the upgraded Dell screen (wxga+).
My question is this? Which will they send? They say it will be comparable. How can it be comparable if they dont even make a 14.1" vostro anymore? I don't want a 15" clunker because the reason i got the 14" was because of portibility.
I also dont wanna get stuck with onboard intel crap graphics, will they give me discrete video card?

When I restart my computer, my sound works for an hour or two and then suddenly shuts off. It does this with or without headphones. It works again as soon as I restart the computer, but I'd really love not to have to restart my computer every hour just to get the sound to work.
Also- downloading Windows 8 isn't an option as a lot of my work is incompatible with windows 8.
I have been using internet from various sources, but now I want to share internet from my HP Envy M6 n012dx TouchSmart via Wifi Hotspot.. So How do I set up a Wifi Tethering Hotspot connection so that other devices can leech internet from me?
Also, I would like to set up Wifi Direct for file sharing with my Phone..I tired everything in my knowledge.. I even installed Intel PROSet/Wireless Tools Software too for Wifi HotSpot but it's not working either..
By the way, I'm using Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 3160..
I have a HP ENVY dv6-7273ca with the following system information...I am running Windows 8.1, along with HP CoolSense. The notebook is always on a hard and flat surface, with plenty of space around it for ventilation. I periodically clear the fan vents with compressed air as preventative maintenance.
Over the past few weeks I have found that, for no apparent reason, the fan has got increasingly loader and I would experience intermittent 'black screens' at start-up. It has now got to the stage where the fan is constantly working at a high speed, and is extremely hot to the touch. This includes at initial start up, even after long periods of shutdown, and with no other software other than the OS running.I have always run HP Support Assistant via Windows, and there does not seem to be any issues shown by this software. I have also tried to run the HP System Health Scan, but all I get is a constant progress bar. I have tried this in Google Chrome and Internet Explorer.I have checked, and I have the latest BIOS update. I am running the ENERGY STAR power option.
