HP Envy M6-K010DX Recovery :: Drive Where Windows Is Installed Is Locked

Oct 28, 2014

Have an Envy M6-K010DX notebook. Due to an internet problem while upgrading from Win 8 to 8.1, the PC doesn't properly boot and Windows Explorer won't load. Decided to 'Refresh' the OS and went to the F11 restore utilities. When I go to the refresh utility and follow the prompts I reach a message that says, "The drive where windows is installed is locked. Unlock the drive and try again." I've searched support for unlocking instructions and aside from some bootrec commands (that didn't work - probably because I don't have a Win 8 disk) not much is available.
 
The only access I have for running commands is via the Task Manager and F11 command prompt. What is this 'locked' drive, anyway?

HP Envy 15t-j000 :: How To Quickly Disable Touchpad

Oct 6, 2013

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.

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 15t-j000 Display :: Flashes Between A Blue And Desktop Screen

Oct 30, 2014

Product: HP ENVY TouchSmart 15t-j000 Select Edition CTO Notebook PC, Model C9G48AAR, Product Number: C8P45AV

Problem: After logging in, the screen flashes the Start Screen on and off in random fashion, and is unresponsive to any input.

Effort: We followed the instructions on the HP web site for this symptom (Desktop Screen Flashes Between a Blue Screen with a Blank Taskbar and a Desktop Screen on Startup (Windows 8)), but it failed at step 8 - the Start Screen flashes in Safe Mode with no way to find or enter the "Control Panel" step.

We have also rolled back the system to the last restore point, reseated the memory, and reset the BIOS - all HP recommended processes for video problems.

Current Status: We always look to resolve any problems via the HP web site first; this one had us stumped.

HP Envy TS M6 OS/Software :: Windows 8 Password Reset On SleekBook

Aug 11, 2014

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.

HP Envy 15t-j000 Display :: Video Not Working In Graphics Mode - Small Dots All Over Screen

Aug 29, 2014

2 weeks ago I began having video issues on my system. At that time, I was able to get to the login screen and right after I logged in, the screen started blinking at a constant rate (about evey second). To fix this, I booted to the Startup Menu (hit ESC after power on) and got the text based menu. From there I could get to the nice little graphical Windows Startup Options Menus. I used that to do system restore back to July and this seemed to work for a couple weeks.Now when I start the laptop, it quickly goes to a screen full of little dots all over and I can't see anything. I was able to get the text based statup menu that listed (system info, sys diags, ..., Starup menu). But when I tried to get the graphics based menus, it immediately when to the screen with dots so I could not do any of the recovery or start up options (like safe mode).

Attaching screen shot.

HP Audio :: Envy 15t-j000 - Beats Audio Fluctuation And Skipping

Sep 10, 2013

So I recently purchased this powerhouse of a machine and absolutely love it. I have one problem though and it is a really bothersome one to me because i really enjoy listening to m music and use my laptop as an audio source for my higher end audio components. 
 
I have an envy 15t-j000 touchsmart that i purchased in late july and received in mid august with the beats audio option. 
 
Ever since I first powered on the computer the audio would skip or fluctuate. I would notice the fluctuation when plugged into my stereo via the 3.5mm headphone jack. It would sound like the volume would lsightly fluctuate or maybe miss some of the lower end frequencies. 
 
The more noticeable problem is the skipping. It will make a skipping noise that sounds as if the computer is bogged down with material, even when all that is being performed is playback. It sounds like frequency in the lines. This will occur at random times under various circumstances. It occurs when playing a music file as well as streaming music through spotify or pandora or playing a video on youtube. The skipping occurs in all those circumstances in both output to another source (headphones or speakers) as well as playing through the built in speakers. 
 
Is it possible I am missing a driver? Is the sound card messed up? Is it just a problem with the computer? is there a fix that doesn't require me sending it back to hp?

HP Lockups :: Envy 15t Locked Out - Password That Is Always Used Not Working

Feb 17, 2010

Got a new Envy 15t and spent a couple of hours with it and then left town and had a big project and when I came back 3 weeks later and powered up, the password I always use didn't work.

If I had used a new/different password when I set this up, I would have written it down and I can't find anything in the file that would suggest I didn't use my normal PC password.
 
Is it possible that I never reset the password?  If so, is there a standard password that the laptop is shipped with?

HP Lockups :: Envy 15 With Windows 8.1 - Fans And CD Drive Not Working

Feb 12, 2013

I have a 2012 envy 15 with Win8.1 Update 1 and a few days ago, i noticed that there was a newer version of my graphics card so I decided to update it.
 
After the installation, the computer screen became black and I only was able to see the mouse pointer, So i waited for almost half hour and then decided to turn of my computer. I restarted it and it kept seeing a black screen (the windows logo appeared during the boot).
 
As I couldn't do anything with my computer, I decided to Refresh it in hope that it will return to a good state. During the refreshing the pc restarted but the power light started blinking , like the computer was at Sleep, and when the refresh finished, the screen was good, but the light kept blinking.
 
I tryed to shutdow the computer but when i turn it on again I didnt ear the Cd rom making the usual noise and the lights where blinking. 
 
So i decided to maybe put it in sleep, but when i tried it, the computer screen when black for a few seconds and the pc went  wake immediately, and when i try to put it to sleep again, the Sleep option was gone.
 
Then I thought that something went wrong with  the refresh , so i clean install windows from a bootale usb drive since the CD wasn't working..
 
But that didn't work either, and to make things worst all my computer fans stopped working. So now I end up with a pc with a clean win8 install, the power lights keep blinking (both power button and the side light), no ability the sleep the computer, no cd drive and no fans..

HP Envy 14 2090 Recovery :: Windows 7 Installation Cannot Find Hard Drive

Nov 13, 2014

I'm installing Windows 7 x64 on my HP Envy 14 2090.
 
Setup cannot find my harddrive, presumably because a SATA driver is missing. I have tried the supplied SATA driver from HP driver download page for my model, but they don't work. I've tried various others, still no luck.
 
The harddrive is found by BIOS. The harddrive has been working without a hitch for years, right up until I tried a re-install.
 
PS: I'm not using the HP recovery DVDs, since these install all sorts of unneccessary software I don't want. (Why do all major laptop producers add this crap?)
 
Where can I find the correct SATA drivers for use with Windows 7 x64 installation?

HP Envy 4-1046tx OS/Software :: No Hard Drive Found When Installing Windows 7 On UltraBook

Mar 24, 2013

I have a HP Envy 4 - 1046tx Ultrabook and the operating system is Windows 8.1 64-bit. While downgrading to Windows 7 64 bit I was unable to find the hard drives. In the installation screen it showed me "No drives were found. Click Load Driver to provide a mass storage driver for installation.".
 
I downloaded all the versions (from latest to the oldest) of Intel Rapid Storage Technology drivers and tried installing them one by one but they didn't work and still the hard drives aren't visible. But if I use a Windows 8 installation disc and install the driver the hard drives are visible.
 
I need my computer to display the hard drives by default without requiring a SATA driver. How do I do that? My chipset manufacturer is Intel and the model is Ivy Bridge HM77.

How can I get the Administrator password removed so I can reset it?  When I try to reset, it asks for a USB flash drive or disc which I have neither of.
