HP Envy 4-1030us Recovery :: Computer Will Not Reboot
Jul 16, 2014
Ok I was a bone head and apparently did not give the bios enough time to complete. I'v done Bios upgrades hundreds of times. So apparently I powered down somewhere during the upgrade I.E. the computer will not reboot now. Unit is a Envy 4-1030us 16gb ram 128gb ssd drive running win 8.1
What is the safe operating temperature for my notebook? At what temperature can I expect the system to slowdow (as self-protection)? Does that temperature suggest I need to open up the laptop and clean it?
I checked the Intel website, but they don't include a useful temperature number for this model, that is no "case temp #", the only number is the tJunction, which is 105 Celcius, which must be meltdown temperature. I've had some unusual behavior at much lower temperatures. Including image of temperature diagnostic tools with must-be-bad-flame symbol. I read on en.kioskea.net that safe temp for i5 is 70 celcius, and 100 for latops - that's really hot.
i bought a new hp envy 15t-j100 (window's 8 64bit ). during installation of some program i installed another windows start menu (i thought it is windown 7 start menu for windows 8) but i discovered after that it is a windows 8 start menu for windows 7. this caused my computer to stop showing anything after starting up. i restarted it many times but nothing is showing on the screen except the mouse cursor .i don't have any backup recovery for my computer.
I flashed to f.24 with no problems before HP yanked it. Just now I flashed to f.26a, and now I'm noticing that with every soft reboot the laptop recycles power - power light goes off and back on, even doing a ctrl-alt-del on a DOS prompt!
I'm not 100% certain it was this way with f.24 as I haven't had the need to boot to DOS until now (just whacked the stock HP OS). But I sure don't remember the computer recycles power with every Windows reboot.. Is this how HP is fixing the wakeup and/or black screen problems that I never had?
This can't be very good for those who have a spinning platter hard drive - I got one myself I got the 160SSD+250HDD.
I have an Ideapad Y510P with 24G SSD and Windows 8.1. I uninstalled the Express cache by a mistake. So I want to re-install it. Unfortunately, the install program told me that I need to reboot the system even I tried to reboot or shut down the system several time.
I am working on an Envy Pro 4-b000. The hard drive has failed. I have a replacement drive on the way, but I did not create a recovery disk when the laptop was purchased. It had windows 7 - 64 bit on it previously. What are my options to getting recovery media for this laptop?
thru HP tech support tried to recover my notebook with no success. instructed to purchase recovery dvd's (they don't offer a usb flash option and I have no internal dvd). they told me to find an external drive so I purchased an HP. they told me to:
- restart my machine with dvd#1 in place and tap F9 to get to boot device order to USB CD/DVD ROM drive - windows starts loading files - I can hear the writer spinning up - recieve an error "boot disc cannot be found", press any key to continue - windows starts loading files and atempts to start - restoration incomplete, hit retry - cycle repeats
HP support said to tap any key as window tries to load - no luck
When I get to the HP Recovery Manager - I've tried System Recovery and Minimized Image recovery - same results
My question is - can my system load from the external DVD drive if it was never activated (ie drivers) thru windows? Can it be done outside of windows? Seems like it can't read from the disc
Can my recovery discs be copied/transferred to a USB flash drive to avoid the external drive completely?
I did an upgrade to windows 7 RC 7100 and my 3DMark scores took a dive to 935. I tried 2 different drivers, but my scores didn't improve. Anyone isntall windows 7, and got better scores? if so, what drivers did you use?
I have a HP ENVY 17-j053ea which I had to purchase recovery discs for. I used the recovery discs several times following different instructions and using different BIOS settings, and have been in 3 different chats with HP but I am still getting an error message. In the final chat HP told me that I should take the laptop back to the retailer who should repair/replace it for me and if they don't then to contact HP over chat again.
The error message is a dialog box with a black background titled 'Recovery Manager' and the message says 'The recovery attempt has failed. Select one of the following buttons:' where the buttons are 'Save Log', 'Details' and 'Retry'. If I click on 'Retry' it prompts me to insert disc 1 again, (at the stage of recieving this error message both discs have already been used) and if I click on 'Details' a file named 'CTOERROR.flg' opens in Notepad and contains the following text:
ChkErrBB.CMD : Detect some error during PININST_BBV.ChkErrBB.CMD : Check c:system.savlogsBurnBootWarn.logChkErrBB.CMD : or, check c:system.savlogsBurnBootMerge.log

I was having few problems with my computer so using HP Recovery Media Creation I created a USB recovery Key, after using it I was able to factory reset everything but now my windows in not activated, I spoke to Microsoft but they told me to speak to HP about this matter, I am soo confused now
I also decided to update to windows 8.1 to see if it solves any probelm as thats what I had before the factory reset but it is still the same and on the desktop there is a small message which says "Windows 8.1 Build 9600"
I had an HP Pavilion dv6, but some part inside relating to the power failed. Ultimately, the constant cutting of power caused my hard drive to fail. I was able to use HP Recovery Manager to back up my files (music, documents, pictures, etc.). For Christmas, I was gifted a new computer, but it is not an HP. I tried to restore my backup file to my computer but it says that HP Recovery failed. I'm guessing the issue is because the new computer is Lenovo Thinkpad and doesn't have the HP Recovery software. How can I restore my files to my new computer?
I have an HP ENVY dv7 Notebook. When the computer was new I tried to make a recovery disc set. When finished I would check the discs ( DVD - R ) I would get a message saying the discs did not write correctly. Tried discs from three different packs, still the same. Called HP Support and they went through the procedure with me, still the same fail. I was told me not to worry if I ever had to have the discs because of a crash they would send them to me for free as they have a record. Now I will be using this computer mainly on the internet and think I should have the discs just in case. Called HP and was told no record, no free discs and it will cost a lot to make the discs. Is there any way to make discs or put the info on a hard drive? I do not know if the computer thinks I made a copy or not since the copies I thought I was making were defective.
I have a HP Envy TouchSmart 15t-j000 and I want to enter bios. When I restart the computer just the HP logo appears. I've tried to press ESC, F1 - F12, insert, delete, home, end... Nothing works. Do you know how I can do this?
In November of 2012, my husband bought me an HP 2000-2b09 laptop (Windows 8 came with it). Anyways, a few months after my husband bought the computer, Windows 8 began slowing my computer down causing it to crash. A friend of ours had a copy of Windows 7, so I out that on there. It worked fine for almost a year until about a week or so ago. My computer somehow got Trojan and Malware viruses that I couldn't get rid of it no matter how hard I tried. That slowed my computer down dramatically.
So bad that I can't even play games on it anymore (I'm a huge Sims fan). I recently tried putting Windows 7 on it again. It worked, but the only issue is, it won't allow me to connect to the internet. I need to install the drivers for it, but I need to be connected to the internet to do it. Is there a way for me to get Windows 8 back on it without buying it? I don't have the money to buy that either. My sister purchased a "Windows Recovery Disk" for my father a few months back. I want to borrow it, but I'm not sure it would recover Windows 8.
i got my new dv5 last night and ive got a problem. The first time it happened was when i tried to make one of those back up DVD's, i open the disc recovery manager, and the computer suddenly logs off, and im reverted back to the welcome screen where i need to click my name to log back in. Every program that was running simply dissapears. I was like 'crap... i guess i cant make any back up discs'. But then it happened again when i tried to install WinRAR, it was corrupted becuase i copied the files from another computer and after i press ok in the error box it does the same thing.. 3 times i had to re-download a file i was downloading at that time. I guess it only happens when theres an error. I immediatly uninstalled norton and most of the bloatware so it cant be due to that. So now im paranoid about opening any file hoping that it wouldnt log off like that suddenly and lose my work.
I could not install windows 7 because of the above subject. I tried to load drivers for RAID installation it says the specified location does not contain information about your hardware. Although i have downloaded the driver from intel website (the link you have provided).
is it maybe i tried to install the driver from the hard disk?
Do Vaio Z Series laptop owners use their laptop as their main primary computer or a secondary computer? Do Vaio Z series owners also have a desktop pc as their primary computer and use their Vaio Z Series as a secondary computer? Or is your Vaio Z Series laptop your one and only computer that you always use? Is it comfortable using the 13 inch screen for long periods of time?
Reason i ask is some people have more then one computer and some people just have one.
I'm just wondering if the Vaio Z Series laptop is a good choice as a main computer since it's got good specs and it's nicely portable but will the 13 inch screen be ok to use for long periods even at the higher 1600 x 900 resolution?
I have recently bought an HP envy m6-laptop, and I constantly get a warning message alerting the Recovery disc is full. I have a Windows 8 operating system on the computer, and I have tried to follow the guidelines. That solution was however for the Windows 7 and I got stuck halfways without solving the problem.
