HP Envy M6 OS/Software :: Setting BIOS To Boot From CD
Aug 8, 2014
I forgot my administration windows log in password after a vacation. I have down loaded a free program called Ophcrack and had set my laptop to boot from a cd 1st but I just cannot get the laptop to boot from a cd. It just keeps booting up from the internal drive.
The cd is an image and is bootable on my desktop.
The notebook Model: HP ENVY m6 Notebook PC
Product Number: C2N77UA#ABL
BIOS Version: F.25
Processor Type: Intel(R) Core i7-3632QM CPU @ 2.20GHz
OS: Windows 8.1
I did not make a password reset disk (I am learning it the hard way now!). I don't want to do a "System Recovery" because I do have quite a bit of data on it.
I realize there are paid windows password recovery tools out there but I would like to use this "free program" to try to crack it 1st.
How to set the bios properly so the notebook can be booted from a cd. I also did try to boot it up from an usb drive but the notebook kept booting from its internal drive.
I got tired of always having the fan running from startup to shutdown regardless of task. If just tooling around on the web, can I just set this to "off"? Cuts down on noise dramatically, may even extend battery life a tad.
Today, I was prompted by the HP Support Assistant software that a BIOS update was available, so I had the application download and install the update. When the computer came back up, it is stating the a boot device cannot be found.
I have an HP ENVY TouchSmart m7-j010dx Notebook PC running Windows 8.1. Laptop was functioning just fine prior to the update, which means I probably shouldn't have allowed the BIOS update.
how I can reset my ENVY m6 dx1105 to the factory setting which make it include Win8 with all original softwares and drivers.I faced a major problem which made me be compelled to format the system and install new Win8.1You know , I lost hp logo when the laptop startup.There are some problems with some softwares like Cyberlink PhotoDirector Software which refused to be install becasue my laptop is not authorized machine !I need to get factory setting like I bought the laptop before year ago !
I am having trouble with setting up the fingerprint scanner. I skipped the password set up when I first got this HP laptop. Now when I boot up my laptop the scanner flashes, but it won't let me set it up and asks for a password or scanner. Since I never set up my password I just close it and use my laptop. But now I don't know where/how to get back to the beginning in order to complete the set up.
recently purchased an HP ENVY x360 - 15-u011dx Touch Laptop. Try to set up two external monitors using an HDMI splitter. I can "extend" the desktop, but both screens are showing the same image, which isn't what I want. Can i set up two external monitors with this laptop using a splitter (this was what I was told would work when I purchased the unit along with the two monitors.) Previous laptops had HDMI and VGA ports allowing for two monitors. This laptop (as well as most newer ones) no longer have a VGA port.
Ive recently had my laptop repaired after it got wet and the replaced the screen and everything,but since i have had it back the FN and brightness buttons do not work, nor does the brightness controls work via BIOS settings, also when the laptop goes into sleep mode or the lid is closed, the screen stays on bright white instead of going off.
I have a W530, with i7 and 16G standard setup. I want to enable HV-X and found they are marked as Disabled, and gray-out in BIOS, also date is gray-out also.
i7 must support virtualizaion, while time setting is gray-out, I think this is either a security issue or a BIOS bug, but I had same problem with 2013 Feb BIOS, and also update to 2014 latest BIOS, same problem here.
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 got this laptop a few days ago, I currently have 7 and XP installed on it and kind of have vista...(read further down).
My 7 seemed to break today after playing around with a program called powerstrip trying to get my external monitor to show the right resolution (I've realised now the cable vga was broke, but meh) but this is not the full problem, after windows 7 failed to boot I tried to boot xp after turning it off during the windows 7 splash screen and now im stuck with a dash when I turn the laptop on (I dont know if its actully related to something I've done or not).
If I turn the laptop on a flashing dash comes on in the top right, it then stops flashing and turns into a none flashing dash further up the screen and just locks here and I cant do anything at all other than trying to restart it. When I had this problem previously (at least I think this problem) on my desktop it usualy turned out to be something usb related but I have everything unplugged (all though the bluetooth adapter light is on when it is doing this) so I realy dont know what to do...............
I get the error in the Title after i tried to flash the latest BIOS update for the Z510. I can press ok and then get into the boot manager but i cant choose anything there. Also I cant boot from a Disk with e.g. XP on it.
I also tried the Inside BIOS crisis mode (fn+r) with the BIOS file on my USB drive but it doesn't work and tries to access the file on the USB drive but boots normally instead to the error again. (Couldn't try it with removed battery as I have to remove the whole back to remove the battery on the Z510).
the Hard drive on my HP ENVY dv4 crashed and I have replaced it with a Samsung SSD 840 PRO. I dont have a back-up and have had to purchase a new version of Windows 8.I am trying to install this operating system, but when I turn on the computer it tells me that there is no boot device is found.How to I get the computer to read the new windows 8 disk that I have purchased so that I can install the operating system?
I just bought a new HP ENVY-4 with Windows 8 pre-installed. After some weeks in which it worked fine, the computer started to have some trouble. Then it simply did not start anymore. As I shitch on, stay for a while with black screen and then a blue mask appears saying "selected boot image did not authenticate". Only chance is therefore to press ENTER and then the computer shut off completely. I went trough your forum and tries almost everything. Recovery tools run, but not resolve. After the treatment, the problem is still there. I noticed that If I try to run the tool "repair problems to start windows", computer says that was not able to repair.. I also open BIOS and changed the setting relevant to secure boot and legacy mode... the computer simply does not start! I finally re-formatted the PC trhough the USB reboot key, (done with the HP support tool, when it was new)... same problem appear as I restart!
Will not boot..has the error msg "Boot device not found" "please install an OS on your hard disk". Has "2" flashing lights, can only access F1 & F2 from boot menu. F9,F10 & "enter to continue setup" options take u right back to initial error msg screen.
In F2 diagnostics, ran memory test and passed but failed hard drive test on both quick & extensive. Failed id#M0FW03-6AD79M-XD7X0K-60CM03.
I have an ENVY 17 (3277nr) with windows 8.1 in it but I'm unable to update it since several months ago so I decided to reinstall the OS so I went to the windows site that lets you download an ISO image of windows 8.1 to burn it into a disc (right now I dont have a 4gb usb at hand but is also possible).
I already burned the disc by right clicking the ISO and selecting 'burn disc image' and changed the boot options but every time I turn on my computer all I see is a single underscore and then the regular windows 8 boot screen.
I already visited wbesites in this regard and I've read things like the windows 8 UEFI thing (not on my laptop since I've upgraded from w7) and the security settings on the BIOS but none of them seem to fix the problem.
Oddly, when trying to open the burned dvd it only says 4.37gb out of 4.37gb, do you think my dvd drive might be damaged?
I am having difficulty booting Windows 8 on my HP Envy 4 Ultrabook. Firstly when I try to login to Windows using my Windows 8 password it says "The User Profile Service service failed the sign-in. User profile cannot be loaded".
Then following advice from other online support forums including this one, on restarting the computer then pressing F8 repeatedly I get the following message: "Boot device not found. Please install an OS on your hard disk. Hard disk (3F0).
I have an HP envy 14 beats edition that has a corrupt or missing boot files. The instructions are very simple, enter your windows cd, select language, and then repair. What if my laptop didn't come with a windows cd, just a recovery cd? How do I repair my files. Can I download the files somewhere to boot up and repair my laptop os?
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.
I just removed the stock HDD that came with my M4-1015x and now I'm trying to install windows 7 to the SSD that I replaced it with. However, upon boot up I get the message "Selected boot image did not authenticate. Press <enter> to continue" when the laptop attempts to read the OS from the disc. I've never seen this before... (It's a legitimate DVD copy of Windows 7) ...
