HP Envy TouchSmart 15t J000 :: How To Enter Into Bios - When Restart Computer Logo Appears
Jun 14, 2013
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?

My problem is that my audio shuts off after a few minutes, then if I want it back I have to restart the PC and it appears fine, but imagine having to restart your computer after initially powering up EVERY time you want to use the PC. The Support assistant says my drivers are up to date which may be the problem due to the fact that I did not have this issue until recently which tells me that one of the automatic updates caused this problem.
Additionally, a problem that was never fixed was that my internet inexplicably drops for no apparent reason. Sporadic problem and has nothing to do with my connection as it as occurred in multiple physical locations. Opening up Internet explorer and clicking "fix connection" works after a few minutes, but this is only a bandaid solution.
I've had a HP Envy 15 touchsmart laptop (Windows 8 originally, windows 8.1 now) for about 2 months now and haven't had any problems, till a few hours ago i attempted to update the bios of my laptop using the hp support assistant. After the restart, the pc would no longer start up and took me to a blue screen with the error message SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED. Everything I have done so far short of a refresh or reset has not worked and if i could I would like to avoid both as I do not have the bandwith to go download windows 8.1 again.
I have a HP Envy X2 that is prompting for a password to enter the BIOS setup. I apparently have lost the password. I am able to boot windows, but cannot enter the bios setup. How may I reset the password?
I have the following problem with my computer, lenovo sl 510: when pressing the power button, the computer won´t boot. On the display you can see a black background, in the upper right corner the intel emblem and in the lower left corner you can see "thinkpad". I cannot enter the bios and nothing works. We´ve tried already to press the power button a few times to reset the computer. Didn´t work as well. The keyboard doesn´t accept any hot key combinations.
I just bought an aspire switch 10 last week, but I already got into problems with it.You see, when I turn it on, the acer logo appears, but then the screen goes blank and black.When I tried pressing some buttons, there is a mans voice and tells what the button I pressed is. Then nothing happens. It's just like that to every button. I tried to turn it of by just having the battery empty. Cause the screens still blank.What do I do about it?
I had purchased lenovo g580 core i3 a year ago. 2 days ago, after shutting my laptop, when i tried to switch on, usual lenovo screen appeared in the beginning, but does not happen anything after that. it hangs there, without giving any response.. there are 2 option i.e., to press F2 for setup and F12 for boot menu. but nothing happens even when i press those buttons...
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.
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:

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.
I wanted to downgrade my new HP ENVY 15 TouchSmart 15-j023ea to Windows 7 because it's more familiar/usual to me, but unforunately I've noticed that my laptop does not appear in HP's driver list
Also, recent Envy 15 TouchSmart models do not have windows 7 drivers (At least this is what I've seen)
My laptop came with Windows 8 Installed. I installed my windows 7 on this machine and realised I have NO drivers for it... That's the reason I came back to windows 8 right now, and try to find a solution.
I really want to downgrade to windows 7 x64. Are there any drivers for this OS?
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).
After i uninstalled Android Studio last night, I was prompted to restart my laptop to apply changes. I clicked yes, after the reboot however I no longer had my full screen display(1280x800) and there is a black bar to the right side of the screen.
I have tried updating/uninstall/reinstalling my graphics driver(Intel Hd Graphics 3000) and the bar is still there. No option to scaling,(set at Maintain Display Scaling)
I tried taking a picture to display the black bar on m monitor using print screen but the black bar does not show when I paste into paint.

I hit enter eight times, and I get a choice of entering a password or continuing, when I continue I can go on to windows. If I choose enter a password I get a blue window with a KEY. I can take the eight digit number key, and enter it in a program on another computer, 'allservice.ro/acer' which gives me the password. I enter the password into my laptop (acer aspire E1-531-2438) and it leaves the blue window, and I can continue either with the HDD loading windows 7, or I can load a cdrom or dvd.
This is great. But if I reboot, and hit F2, I enter the BIOS, and choose security, and I see that the HDD password is still set. If I hit enter, I can enter the HDD password, but when I enter the one I just used, it tells me it is invalid.
I have also tried to kill the power, and startup again going into BIOS, but the HDD password I just used is still invalid.
