I have the HP- Pavilion g7 Notebook and have not had any problems until I was getting a Blue Screen of death after an update of Skype got on my computer. I had to do a system recovery several times until I found out this is a problem apparently caused by skype, now skype wants to update again and windows7 doesn't like it at all, the machine crashes again. Last resort, I downloaded an older verson of skype which works fine but in the long run doesn't solve the problem. If there is a fix what is it, I have not gotten any suggestions from skype, to get this resolved. The only thing I hear it might be related to some driver that has not been updated. What can I do?
I want to upgrade my hp pavilion dv6 6140 tx (Product no-QC339PA#ACJ) to windows 8 from windows 7. I surfed through the hp site and found out that windows 8 driver for my laptop is not yet available. Its really sad to find out that HP is not providing windows 8 drivers for such a high end configured laptop. how can i get windows 8 drivers for my laptop
i tried both windows 7 &8 drivers but it didnot work.after restarting wifi is not working or when it has gone to sleep and after resuming from sleep wifi is not switching on.i installed hp wireless button service also,it shows only airplane mode on/off.so no use with that.so please update correct drivers of broadcom combo adapter(wifi+bluetooth).
Today, somebody (without my permission) updated my laptop from windows 8.0 to 8.1. Later I found out that this person didn't make the, according to the HP supportpage, necessary preparations. HP warns that my laptop now can get problems, like a blank screen, loss of internet connectivity and disabled hardwaredevices. I bought my laptop about 1 year ago. It's a HP Pavilion 15 Notebook PC 64-bit.
I am having trouble with my wireless button, it remains red/orange despite touching it and restarting my laptop several times. My laptop is an HP Pavilion DV7=1135NR, it is originally installed with Windows Vista 64bit. However, i have it reformatted and change the OS to Windows7 Ultimate (32bit). And now i the wireless button wont turn blue. And also the wireless button located in the taskbar is no longer there.
Some additional background: The same problem (wireless wont turn blue) had been recurring before i had it reformatted but then i seek assistance then to HP customer assistant, and installed atheros. the problem had fixed for a while and the same problem would recur. However, i can turn it blue once i restart the laptop or when the "WLAN disabled" message would appear in the task bar and i would immediately touch the wireless button.
i tried downloading a driver from HP but still not working. right now i am connected via ethernet cable and its such an incovenience.
A friend of mine has a HP Pavilion g6 notbook PC which is hopelessly stuck in a loop of "Press the ESC key for startup menu". None of the suggested fixes have worked and I cannot access the operating system. I want to reload Windows 7 Home Premium and should be able to do it with the information on the sticker at the back of the unit. I have the product ID and the serial number. What do I do next?
I have recently reformatted my HP 15-g029ca Notebook PC and installed Windows 7 64-Bit. However, it seems that I am missing some of the drivers as several functions of the laptop are not working (Wifi, USB etc.).
I have checked the device manager and all the items under the "Other Devices" have little "!" marks next to them (when i right-click and select properties, under "Device status" it says: "The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)...".
"Network Controller-!" "Ethernet Controller-!" "PCI Device-!" "SB Bus Controller-!" "Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller-!"
I upgrade my system to windows 8, and erase all programs and files, incluing software, actually my computer seen working perfect but when open tool manager, show me that the coprocessor isn't working because the driver inst installed, seen code 28, the manufactured seen unknown and the ubication is bus PCI o, disposition 1, function 3. i cant upgrade the driver because i cant find int the web the name of the manufacturer.

I was using my hp pavilion dv6 notebook and then it got a blue screen with white text (I believe hard drive problem , idk) I restarted the computer and my computer couldn't load my Windows 7 OS. I already tried Safe mode, I tried to the repair option. The computer tried to repair for 7 hour without any results. I already tried resetting with Windows recovery disc, didn't work..
I'm thinking about getting a Dell XPS M170 notebook from eBay. I wanted to know how much the CPU and memory could be upgraded. And if the system will support Vista. I'm looking at getting one with the 7800 GTX video card in it.
I have owned my g6 notebook for five or six years. A few months ago I noticed that if I unplug it from the power adaptor it will work fine awhile then suddenly crash. This happens even with the battery fully charged.
I am considering buying a new battery, but I don't want to waste the money if it is a different problem since the battery seems fine.
I Just upgraded my 5672 to Windows Vista with a clean installation, installed all drivers from Acer's site. When I am using skype with bluetooth headset (Samsung WEP200) it crashes my computer to a blue screen does a memory dump and reboots. This happens every time after about 10-20 minutes of skype usage. Everything else seems to work fine for hours on end.
Secondly I still have an unknown device in device manager after installing all the drivers from Acers site, anyone know what device that could be? The hardware ID is "ACPISMCB000"
I have installed Windows 8 on a HP dv6-6096 nr which I purchased in may 2011. I did an upgrade from Windows 7 Home Premium. Every time, I hightlight control panel, the machine reverts back to the desktop. How do I fix this?
I thave updated my video drivers. I an't tell waht other devices are not usiable in Windows 8.
I figured that I can go a clean install and all should work but I don't know if I can re-install under Windows 8.
Here is an update:The HP dvd6-6096nr used NON-STANDARD function which folks at HP, Microsoft and Microcenter have been made aware of. So the ways to get into Safe mode, Shift F8 is the easy way. For me, that doesn’t work. Using Windows key +x, lets me run msconfig.Using msconfig and booting into safe mode, action center tells me that I need to install 3 drivers: (Intel Bluetooth wireless driver, HP power management and Intel wireless display). Those were installed.I rebooted the machine, Control panel still crashes.Rebooted into safe mode, action center still shows that I need to install these 3 drivers.Since Microsoft makes it nearly impossible to boot windows to update drivers, that is where I am at. My choice is (1) install Windows 8 (not upgrade) or forget about Windows 8. The problem is (1) will Windows 8 re-activate and if other licensed software will re-install?
It has occurred to me that there's an issue with either my Dell Inspiron 3520 Laptop Computer or my Windows 8.1/Windows 8 OS. Occasionally, running the computer (sometimes when it's overheating or just when unplugging the laptop), the computer just crashes, i.e. Screen goes black, power light and HDD light stays on for a about 2 seconds before powering off. No blue screen, no warning, no updates. There's was no reason for it to go off, but it did. It's frustrating because:
1.) When I'm working/playing a game/hosting a multi-player server, the computer tends to crash in the middle of it causing my work to go to waste.
2.) I believe it will damage my laptop and cause further problems in the future
I've researched a bit about this issue before and people have said that it's due to overheating, but I have proven that this is not the case for me as I have placed my PC beside a fan where it kept a steady temperature of about 50-65 Degrees Celsius and I've still faced the issue.
