HP Envy SleekBook 6-1153eo OS/Software :: Enable AHCI In Windows 8 / BIOS

Feb 14, 2013

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)?

HP Envy Dv7 7304tx :: How To Enable AHCI Mode (which Is Not Possible In The BIOS) To Optimize The SSD

Nov 25, 2014

I have an HP ENVY dv7-7304tx now succesfully running a Samsung 840 Evo SSD as the primary disk. The second disk is the original spinning disk.
 
Samsung Magician software tells me I need to enable AHCI mode (which is not possible in the BIOS) to optimise the SSD.
 
Does this have the same or similar solution to that provided in the link here? : [URL]....
 
Would there be any negative consequences for the spinning disk?

HP Envy M6 K015dx :: How To Enable AHCI

Nov 5, 2013

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? 
 
How to enable the AHCI?

HP Envy Dv7-7398ca :: Enable AHCI Mode On Notebook With SSD

Aug 12, 2011

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.

Dell :: BIOS Hack To Enable Intel VT And/or AHCI On Inspiron

Nov 20, 2009

when I got my 9400/E1705 I was always sad for not having the AHCI option available in the BIOS.

This was asked for so many times:

- "Notebooks BIOS should support AHCI"
[url]

- "Enable AHCI in Dell Notebook BIOS"
[url]

- "Please give us BIOS support for SATA AHCI mode on Inspirons!"
Please give us BIOS support for SATA AHCI mode on Inspirons!

- "Give us real bios control"
[url]

- "Bios release"
[url]

In the Sony forum, they have found a way to activate these options even if they're not present in the BIOS:

How to Enable Intel VT and AHCI on a Napa/Santa Rosa platform Phoenix BIOS Vaio laptop
...
The only item you'll need is a bootable DOS media. Click one of these links for instruction for creating a bootable floppy disk (with USB floppy drive) or usb stick.USB flash1 or USB flash2 or CDR (add modified table file to image before writing).
Instructions:

1.Download symcmos and copy it to your bootable DOS media. This utility is used to modify your Phoenix BIOS settings. Also, download a DOS text editor and copy it to the media if you feel comfortable editing a file in DOS.

2.Go to the BIOS by pressing F2 during start-up, or when the VAIO logo appears, and reset the settings to factory default. Save and reboot.

3.Go back to the BIOS and enable the boot from external devices option. Save and reboot.

4.Press ESC when the VAIO logo appears to bring up the boot selection menu and select the bootable DOS media. At the prompt, type "symcmos -v2 -lDefault.txt", without quotes, and note that there's no space in between the flag and filename. This will create a literal symbol table from the NVRAM named Default.txt which contains all the current BIOS settings. Reboot by pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del. If that doesn't work, hold the power button until the notebook turns off.

5.Use the DOS text editor (or boot to another OS and use a text editor there) to edit the generated Default.txt file. Change the following lines and save the modified file to something else (e.g. modified.txt):

For Napa SZs - R0112N0

AHCI: (015C) [0000] ---> (015C) [0001]

VT-x: (0354) [0000] ---> (0354) [0001]...

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 TS M6 SleekBook Networking :: Unable To Maintain WiFi Connection

Jul 7, 2013

I just got a brand new HP Envy. However, i have not been able to maintain a wifi connection. Usually it will not connect to my wifi or will only connect for a few minutes and then say 'limited' and then not connect at all. I did the full windows updates for the computer. I updated the drivers for the wifi adapter. I updated the firmware to my router. I also uninstalled norton. None of these have worked, still will not connect or will connect and drop within a few minutes. My system information is as follows:

Product Name: HP ENVY TS m6 Sleekbook
Product Number: EOK41UA#ABA
BIOS (configuration): F/.05-05/28/2013 (0883100022305B00000320100)
Keyboard REvision: 86.32
Total Memory: 8.00 GB
Processor name: Intel (R) Core (TM) i5-4200U CPY @ 1.60GHz

My wifi router information is:
Netgear N150 model WPN824N
Channel is set to auto
Mode: up to 150 MB per Second
Security: WPA2/PSK [AES]

I have two ipads, two iphones, an xbox, a windows phone, two toshiba laptops, and one hp pavillion DM3  that are able to connect and maintain wifi connection with no problem (not all connected at the some time necessarily-it is not an overloading problem). The network is running fine, i just cannot figure out what the problem is with this HP Envy.

HP Envy M6-k025dx Networking :: WiFi Connection Keeps Dropping On New SleekBook?

Jan 28, 2014

I just got my new HP ENVY laptop. Product Name: m6-k025dx. It runs on Windows 8 64-bit. I am experiencing sudden, frequent loss of my Wifi connection. When it gets disconnected I don't even get the Connect To slider (which slides from the right side of the screen and shows the list of networks) on clicking the network button at bottom right corner of the screen. I need to restart my laptop to get connected again and after 5-7 minutes, I lose it again.
 
editing the Power Plan to maximum performance and unchecking "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" but nothing seems to work.
 
The network driver is Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230. I have also updated the driver and turned off Bluetooth and ethernet

HP Envy CTO 4t-1000 Audio :: Sound Only Works For 1 Hour After Restart SleekBook Then Suddenly Stops

Jul 22, 2014

Product: HP ENVY Sleekbook CTO 4t-1000
Model: KD1A99UA#ABA
Operating System: Windows 7
 
When I restart my computer, my sound works for an hour or two and then suddenly shuts off. It does this with or without headphones. It works again as soon as I restart the computer, but I'd really love not to have to restart my computer every hour just to get the sound to work.

Also- downloading Windows 8 isn't an option as a lot of my work is incompatible with windows 8.

Dell Inspiron 1720 :: Difference Between ATA And AHCI Settings For SATA Operation In BIOS

Aug 31, 2007

I just got my new 1720 Inspiron, and I had a problem when trying to create an image of the C and D drive using the Ultimate Boot CD (BART), it would never see my hard disk partitions.  I changed the BIOS setting for the On Board Devices from AHCI (default) to ATA for SATA operation.  I also had to change the Flash Cache Module to be disabled, it was enabled in the Factory Default.  The result of these changes was good, I was able to see my C and D drive when booting from my Ultimate Boot CD. What these changes do?  Should I leave my BIOS at the new setting, or will I lose performance from my hard disk?
