HP Envy 15-U010DX OS/Software :: Disable SecureBoot And Enable Legacy Boot
Dec 9, 2014
I have been trying to disable SecureBoot and enable Legacy boot. This is a fairly straight forward process, press F10 to enter the BIOS, scroll over to the proper area and press F5 over Legacy boot to enable it (Which automatically disables SecureBoot). I have tried this quite a few times and each time have had no success. Everytime I change this setting and restart the computer it just ends up with Legacy Boot disabled and SecureBoot enabled. Yes, I am saving the settings, if I change other settings (Such as Virtualization support) they do save. Why I cannot save these settings after changing them?
I have an HP Envy 15-U010DX. I have also updated the BIOS and am running the latest version.
I'm trying to boot from legacy boot from my new dell 7000 series. however when i change from uefi to legacy i have no boot option. the whole boot list is empty.
i have called dell and the support desk told me dell has no support for legacy :S that means no windows 7 on my dell or any other os that uses non uefi...... i think the bios is corrupt is the whole list is simply missing.
In the past we've restrict the boot options on our laptops vis bios sequence to prevent unauthorised reimaging of machines. However I've just noticed our newest Latitude e6230 still list all the devices as available despite these settings. Screenshots attached.
I have Lenovo Thinkpad Edge 15... Thinkpad edge 15 has all kinds of buttons on the keyboard. Like volume buttons, speaker mute button etc.
The problem is that there is a button for Webcam to disable/enable it (marked with yellow box on the pic), but its not working anymore. Everytime i push it, nothing happens(instead it shows me mouse cursor with that ring) . it should show me that camera is on/off. For example it shows me when my mic is off.
I bought a ThinkPad 540p that comes with preloaded Windows 8.1. As I want to dual boot the machine I tried to select the Legacy Boot option in the BIOS/Startup tab, but I can't do anything as the option UEFI/Legacy Book is greyed out and locked in "UEFI Only". Below it there is an option called: -CSM Support that is also greyed out and selected as [No]. (below these options there is a little note with an asterisk saying "Unselectable for Secure Boot").
How can I enable the UEFI/Legacy Boot option again in order to dual boot the computer? I want to be able to boot from USB or from the CD Drive.
I upgraded my hard drive to a SSD and that is done. Laptop works fine. Installed the Samsung SSD software and it says I need to Enable AHCI to get the SSD running at full potential.
I searched the BIOS and do not see anyplace to change this. I then went to the Device Manager in Windows 8.1and I do not see any ATA/SATA controller. All I see is a RAID controller. RAID controller in a laptop?
Is there a way to enable num lock on startup for the HP envy x360? It is frustrating to enable it, I use the pin method on windows 8, simly because its only 4 character and I don't have to hit enter. There is also no light on the key to indicate its status.
Year old i7 Envy Dv7-7398ca notebook with Samsung 840 Pro x 256 SSD. Windows 8.1. I updated to the SSD soon after I purchsed the notebook.
No issues except the Samsung Magician SSD software keeps flagging me that AHCI mode is disabled and needs to be enabled and I do not see it in BIOS. Nor do I see anything that relates to it in Device manager like IDE or whatever.
It appears the SSD is not optimizing itself based on the fact it thinks AHCI is disabled.
My computer: HP Envy Sleekbook 6 - 1153eo Windows 8 Pro
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)?
How to quickly disable touchpad on HP ENVY 15t-j000?
I just got one of the newest Haswell notebook. With older HP laptop touch pads there is a spot at the upper left corner to disable the touchpad. With the latest Synaptic touchpad on the new ENVY 15t there is no keyboard or touchpad button to disable the touchpad when you are using a mouse.
I have a HP Envy Touchsmart 15 Notebook. I use a USB mouse all the time. When I type I sometime drag my thumb on the touchpad which moves my curser without my noticing it. Can I disable the touchpad. My OS is 64 bit Windows 8.1 .
A friend ask me to upgrade her G70-460US Notebook PC to Win 8.1 from Vista. The bios doesn't have a secure boot option and when checking HP the update for this machine doesn't show it either. It this notebook to old to update to Win 8.1? If not where do I find the Bios upgrade with the Secure Boot option?
On my X1 Carbon, I had to move from Win 8.1 pro to 8.1 Ent. I did a fresh install from scratch to only install what I need.During my setup, I had to disable Secure boot, to boot on a USB Key, install 8.1 Enterprise. Now that everything is working, I would like to re-enable the secure boot option.
If I don't it directly in the BIOS, the laptop doesn't book any more.Do I have to import key from my 8.1 Ent to the Bios or something like this?
When I turn the computer on a blue box comes up with "Enter administrator password or Power on Password. After three attempts a code error comes up with the following 50510665. How can I reset computer?
The laptop: HP Envy TouchSmart 15 Notebook PC (15-j173cl) Windows 8.1 Pro
The problem: I use an external monitor, so my laptop is usually shut. Randomly, my touch screen THINKS something is touching it, which disrupts whatever I'm doing. I would like to disable the touch screen completely, as I do not use it at all.
I thought maybe the latch wasn't closing properly, but the screen resolution changes when I shut the laptop, so it KNOWS it's closed and switches to the proper resolution for my external monitor, but it DOES NOT disactivate the touch screen, and some dirt or something is touching it, changing where my mouse is pointed, where I am typing, etc.
I have tried cleaning the screen and keyboard with compressed air.
The problem happens randomly; sometimes when I CAD for the day, sometimes after hours of working.
I have M1330 that is trying to boot to media direct then promptly BSOD's. I believe the scenario that happened was the notebook was hibernated, then they pressed the media direct button instead of power to wake it up.
How do I tell not to boot to media direct?
I saw this exact same message in another thread but no resolve.
We all know that the f1-f12 keys have their own functions. But I used to always use those keys for other things in World of Warcraft (on a PC that is). Now that I'm on a mac, I can't use the f keys even if I keybind them. Is there a way to disable them for just this program?
And on a side question, is it possible to make a partition with boot camp and then have vmware or parallels run off that partition? Or do I have to install windows twice for boot camp and vmware/parallels?
Now I am not after any passwords or any thing but I think this is disgusting.
My wife has an on boot bios password and wanted to disable it. She asked me to do it because I work in IT so it shouldnt be a problem.
I logged in with her password. Went security, user password, Press enter, typed in existing one then new password blank and confirmed it with another blank password. Rebooted and now it prompts for a password and we are stuffed.
Is this me being stupid did I do some thing wrong is that not the way to do it ? Its appauling. We had a customer in work whos laptop was sent away to be sorted because he had the same problem. At the time I thought he was bit silly but now I can see how it could happen
The previous user set login on a fingerprint, forgot the password. I managed to enter as a result after the long operation myself, as the administrator, to set the password, to set an input both according to the password and on a fingerprint.
But, I want to disconnect all this horror absolutely. Also I don't understand as it to make. I can enter BIOS, but the majority of points thus is unavailable.
I am hoping to buy an HP Envy 15 j102saI want to fit an mSATA SSD as well as the hard drive1. Does this model have a free mSATA bay?2. Is it possible to boot off the SSD and will it require a boot loader from the HDD?
I have a HP Pavilion dv6700t and I'm looking in the bios to set the the sata controller to legacy mode so I can secure erase my SSD. Trouble is there's nothing there to do it. Question is, does anyone know how to set the controller to legacy mode?
