HP Envy M6-1106er OS/Software :: Windows 8 Pro Started To Hang Up After Hyper-V Role Adding
Jan 10, 2013
Have a problem with HP ENVY M6-1106er After upgrading OEM Win8 to Pro version, I have added Hyper-V role to my system and reboot the laptop.
After reboot OS startup freezes on screen with HP logo and rotating circles. If I disable AMD Virtualisation in BIOS - system boots, but hypervisor doesnt work. With enabled Virtualisation in BIOS system doesn't boot with installed Hyper-V role.
i preregistered my vaio fw 41m/h that i bought in july for a free windows 7 upgrade. I then immediately received the confirmation mail saying that i was registered for the program. but so far thats the only mail i've received [ and it was a whole two months ago]. anyone received any follow up mails with more details yet?
I bought the Aspire 8920 from Best Buy here in Canada. You can view the specs of my configuration of the 8920 here.
I absolutely LOVE the laptop. I love high resolution; I love the Blu-ray drive; I love the 4Gigs of Ram; I love the 2 hard drives which give me almost 3/4 of a terabyte. Acer even sent me an additional power adapter and additional battery for FREE (I think the agent I was talking to was just having a good day). Everything about this laptop is awesome! Except one thing...
My configuration comes with the T5750 processor. It turns out that the T5750 doesn't support Intel Virtualization Technology. I've been intending on installing Windows Server 2008 as my primary OS so that I can use Hyper-V (I've heard great things about it, but I haven't really touched it too much yet), but I just found out that you MUST have a processor that either has Intel VT or AMD-V or else Hyper-V will not work. Currently I use VMWare Workstation for my VMs but I can't have any 64-bit guest OSs because of the same problem... my processor doesn't have VT. Don't ask me why I didn't research all this stuff BEFORE buying my new laptop... I'm still kicking myself for that.
So... onto my question(s). There are some configurations of the 8920 that have processors that support Intel VT (ie. T7500, T9500, etc.). I want to, again, upgrade to a machine that has a processor that I need... but I love the Aspire 8920 too much so I think I'm just going to get one of those higher configurations. However, there is a little problem. Intel VT comes turned off by default. The only way for it to be turned on is in the BIOS. I've read in several forums that a few manufacturers are either forgetting to add this BIOS setting or just not doing it at all.
Question 1) To anyone reading this who has an Aspire 8920 with a processor that supports Intel VT (Find out if your processor has VT support): a) What processor do you have? b) Do you know what configuration of the Aspire 8920 you have (ie. 8920-6671)? c) Can you confirm if there is a "Virtualization" or "VT" setting in the BIOS?
Question 2) To anyone reading this that does a lot of virtualizing on their Aspire 8920: a) What virtualization software are you using? b) What guest OSs are you running and what are you using them for? c) Do the VMs run well for you?
Question 3) Since were somewhat on the topic, is there anyone that has some experience with Hyper-V and virtualization under Windows Server 2008; and if so, what are you personal opinions on it compared to other virtualization solutions out there?
I have checked the BIOS settings. Intel Hyper-Thread technology is checked as enabled. When I try to turn on Hyper-V Platform in Control Panel, I am told that Virtualization support is disabled in firmware. I see nothing else in the BIOS menu to turn on. What am I missing?
I'm using a Bluetooth mouse. It often hangs and it seems to be due to Bluetooth freezing/hanging. It is possible to get it going again by going to modern settings/PC and Devices/Bluetooth. Just going to that screen will get it going again.
I have Dell Inspiron 5447 i3 with AMD Radeon R7 M265 with Windows 8.1 and have recently updated all needed windows updates.
I know how to add applications in the switchable settings as high-performace with *.exe extension but when I installed applications from the apps store (i.e. Asphalt 8 - Airborne, etc.) I cannot seem to add them to the switchable graphis settings to get the AMD GPU used. I know that the AMD GPU not getting used because I used a monitoring tool (openhardwaremonitor) that says it was not used. I can add applications like some other games I installed but not from the windows apps store so now I am really confused.
How can I get the AMD graphics to work with some apps in the apps store (specifically in my case, Asphalt)
My HP15-g019wm notebook product number F9H60UA#ABA was hanging on the black welcome screen after logging in for about two minutes before opening to the desktop. My mozilla firefox is slow to open and is not connecting to any websites other than the homepage. It upgraded to the newest version when I first tried to open it and then it slowly opened up. Google chrome opens up quickly but then freezes when I try to go to another website. My computer runs windows 8.1 64 bit system. What could be causing the hangup and internet issues on my laptop? I was able to log in and browse the internet just fine last night, and these problems just started happening this afternoon.
X220 Tablet .... After hours of troubleshooting, I finally found the cause of my Windows 7 Pro Shutdown issue.
The Tablet would hang at Shutdown, then BSOD. I systematically removed drivers until I found the cause. The current installed version of the Thinkpad Tablet Button Driver, Version 1.04.0.0 as installed by System Update was the culprit. As soon as I uninstalled that driver, no more issues.
System: Aspire 5552, Model Pew76: I'm attempting to restore the default software using the System and Recover Software. Everything goes fine until after Running the Language disk. The installation hangs at 99%. Here's what the Restore Progress displays:
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?
my sisters new computer out of the rubish bin after she threw it there in disgust and frustration at the W8 operating system... Her daughters disabled and uses specialised mobility software that works well with W7 but not W8... Looking for a complete set of drivers so we can install Win 7 and save the day (and this computer from an untimley death)... here are its specs...
I came home and these weird lines started to appear on the screen. They don't always appear and they're not vertical. The screen is fine when first boot up, but they start appearing after I run some programs. Sometimes the OS would stop responding altogether.
It's not a virus.
Tried reinstall OS, but the setup halts at the very beginning, which I assume is when it scans for hardwares.
So I'm fairly convinced that it's a hardware issue, and the diagnostic says one of the registers on my video card is bad. (Actually the diagnostic test ran without any problem until it tested one of the video modes, so it appears that the card is fine in some video modes like tiled mode).
Does anyone have any way for me to be exactly sure that it is the video card's fault? It costs 400 bucks on Ebay, so I want to be sure. (There could be a slight chance that it's the MB's fault?)
If it is the video card's fault, what are my replacement options? I don't really mind the performance, since I have bought a new desktop. So any video card that can render a few polygons on screen would work for me.
The system in question: Dell XPS M170 with GeForce 7800 GO GTX WinXP
So when I am playing WoW, my video has started to freeze. Sometimes after about 20-30 seconds it unfreezes. The next freeze, which occurs shortly after, forces me to hard reboot. For the most part, I have to do a hard reboot (though I can still move my cursor around). One time I did this, it gave an error message about my drivers and something about Dx 9.0c. I checked and I have Dx 10. I have had this laptop about 2 months now, and never had this problem before this week. So far (knock on wood) I have not had this problem while watching video, only playing WoW (and usually only on mundane things like fishing or exploring, never raiding, grouping, or in Dalaran.
Developing for the iPhone has become more and more compelling, but I'm not sure where to begin. I have minimal coding knowledge, and I'm completely lost once I open up Xcode. What are the best tutorials, books, etc. to learn Objective C and become familiar with Xcode? How did Xcode developers on this forum start?
I've had this new XPS 17 laptop for less than a month. The screen started flickering about a week ago. I haven't dropped it or anything, and it doesn't stay black for any length of time. It will flicker off and on a few times in less than a second. I was just wondering what should I do?
Was happily surfing on my Studio XPS today when I spotted this: At first I thought a component must be overheating inside the laptop but it's above the CD drive which I hardly ever use. What the heck could have got that hot to melt a couple of keys! I don't think I will be using the laptop on my lap any more.
I got a macbook a couple of months back and it was great at the beginning, but now it's started overheating and turning itself off every few hours. It's been bothering me for a while so i downloaded a program called fan control to monitor the fans and my left fan seems alright going around 700rpm, but my right fan is stuck on -1. Does anyone know if that's a problem within the program or if my right fan is broke?
My dell inspiron 5520 beeps when I turn it on. It is a series of 4 beeps, 4 beeps and 3 beeps. It shut's down when it's on the battery. When I have it on the mains power after the first three series of beeps it shuts down but 15 seconds later it reboots and continues the beeping, this time it is 4 beeps, 4 beeps, 4 beeps constantly until I turn off the mains supply.
They are short beeps, lasting for 2 seconds for the 4 beeps. The gap between the series of beeps is also 2 seconds. Recently it has been left in a room that has no heating and it has been quite cold lately, if that has any effect on it.
I have dell insp n5010. Recently it started giving 8beeps. It displays when I use external Monitor. I changed the LCD yet the problem still persists. I haven't changed the cable though. Do you think I have problem With the mother board. The laptop has 1gb ati graphic card.
I have a 17 Inch Inspiron R Se that I purchased in January...it has started booting to a black screen...if I press the power button again to turn it off then back on it boots fine...it is very annoying seeing as it is almost new...I had the same issue a couple of weeks after getting it and did the computer renew thing which fixed it (until now) but I don't want to do that again as I have a ton of stuff on it now that I don't want to mess with and have to reload etc...
I tried the hard reset and it did absolutely nothing...ran the diagnostics and everything passed.
The fan in my e540 does not stop once it has started spinning. This is completely independent of system temperature. Even though the temperature of the board and the cpu is below 40*C the fan won't stop.
The fan does not always spin, though. If I wake up the system from sleep or power it on, the fan does not spin and will not start spinning until a certain temperature threshold is reached. This part of fan control works correctly.
Interesting procedure: I work until the system gets hot and the fan kicks off. I want until the system is cooled down below 40*C (checked with speccy software, the air stream leaving the notebook is cold). The fan is still spinning at this point and will probably spin forever. I suspend the laptop (no complete power off required). I immediately "wake up" the laptop (system temperature did not change, no time to cool down). The fan is off again and will not start spinning until the temperature threshold is reached.
