    Hi, 

     

    My laptop always shut down on its own when it is not being charged. It is okay when it is connected with charger though. I checked the battery but it diagnostic tool says my battery is OK and no problem. I've ran other diagnostic test to check other problem and it says no problem found. Can you help me regarding this please, thank youu

    Hey guys I have a HP 15-ba079dx . Serial cnd6212wxm  product# w2m88ua. Been having lots of problems with this laptop over heating. Sent it in for repair and the repair did not work. Still over heating. Also my cd/dvd would not show up in windows under system. So I checked into bios..........and it would not show up under load setup. When I went in there to check it there was no option for the cd/dvd drive.  Now I have a computer with a wiped drive and no way to reload my OS onto the system. So how do I get the nother board to once again show and work with the cd drive??? Also when it was in for repair the repair notes say they reflashed/updated bios. Thanks J

  • I can’t do that, hence my post. It’s telling I don’t have room to do it. There are no files on my computer. I’ve deleted everything I possibly can and it still won’t work.

  • I have no idea what you want me to do. I’m a Mac girl and rarely use a windows computer. I have deleted everything off this computer except for windows and I can’t reset because it says there’s not enough room. I need someone who can explain step by step what to do. I am creating a media creation tool from another computer. It is going to take an entire day just to do that as it’s only at 3% after an hour. Once I have that, I have no idea what to do with it. Big mistake buying this piece of crap. Just wanted something really small to save some machine embroidery files on.

    Then return it or sell it and buy a real laptop.

    It is obvious you didn't know what you were doing when you bought the Stream.

    Why are you asking here?

    Get the repair shop to do it right!

    First off, I seriously doubt they WIPED your drive, as I do that regularly and it takes HOURS to do.  Any repair shop is not going to invest that kind of time, or they are going to charge the customer $500 or more for their time.  They probably just erased it.

    Which begs the question as to -- why did they NOT simply reinstall Windows on it?

    Second,  is right -- you should take it back -- and complain bitterly to them, as they should have left you with a fully working PC!

  • 01/09/19--16:11: Re: Creating recovery media
  • The first makes recovery media based on the current state of your PC.

    The second returns the PC to it original state -- before you created an account and installed anything.

    I personally would not use either ...

    My suggestion is you consider using a third-party solution known as Macrium Reflect (MR).

    I prefer to use third-party recovery solutions for the following reasons:
    1) More flexibility and reliabilty -- can make recovery media as often as you like, not restricted to one attempt, which if it fails, then you are stuck.
    2) More media options -- can create media in DVD, USB stick, or external drive format
    3) Mounting option -- can "mount" the save images as virtual "drives" and extract individual files and folders
    4) WinPE boot option -- can install a special boot option that allows you to boot to recovery information and do a repair or restore from there -- when Windows will not boot

    What I recommend is the following:
    1) Download and install Macrium Reflect (MR) from here: http://www.macrium.com/reflectfree.aspx
    2) Run MR and choose the option: "Create an image of the partition(s) required to backup and restore Windows" to write a full backup to an external drive, USB stick, or DVDs
    3) Use the option to create a boot USB stick or CD

    My experience is that MR, when using the High Compression option, typically can compress the saved image file to about 50% of the USED space in the OS partition. This means if you have an 80GB OS partition, and 40GB is used, MR only needs about 20GB to store the image file.

    I use this all the time and it typically takes less than 15 minutes to do the image backup and about the same time or less to do a restore. Plus, MR has the option to Add a Recovery Boot Menu entry. This allows you then to boot into WinPE, and you can then use that to do a restore -- when you can't boot into Windows!

    First off, the HP Recovery will no longer work because the Win10 Upgrade is known to corrupt the recovery information, making a rollback not possible after that.

    Second, we are not permitted to provide information to enable bypassing the login, even though you claim the original owner will confirm they gave the PC to you.

    Third, your best approach, at this point (especially since there is no direct Upgrade Path from Vista to Win10) would be to completely reinstall Win10 from scratch on the PC -- but to do that, you would need access to a PC to use this Microsoft tool to download and create Win10 install media:  https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

    Since the PC is already running Win10, when it gets reinstalled and the PC goes online, it will automatically check with Microsoft and reactivate the OS.

    Hi,

     

    I agree with the other two forum members, but there is another way to reinstall W10, and you can do that as follows...

     

    You can make a W10 USB flash drive installer with the Microsoft Media Creation Tool, using an 8 GB flash drive using another Windows PC, if your PC is not working.

     

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

     

    If you are asked to enter a product key during the installation process, select the 'I don't have a product key' option, and W10 will install and automatically activate once you are connected to the internet.

     

    Here are the steps to create the W10 USB flash drive installer...

     

    1. Select Download tool now, and select Run.
    2. If you agree to the license terms, select Accept.
    3. On the What do you want to do? page, select Create installation media for another PC, and then select Next.
    4. Select the language, edition, and architecture (64-bit or 32-bit) for Windows 10. You want 64 bit.

    5. Select which media you want to use:
    6. USB flash drive.  Plug in a blank USB flash drive with at least 8GB of space. Any content on the flash drive will be deleted. 

    Then you can reinstall the drivers and available software from the PC's support page.

     

    https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/hp-15-ba000-notebook-pc-series-touch/10862319/model/11528132

     

    I doubt that reinstalling W10 isn't going to fix the DVD issue, since it doesn't show up in the BIOS.

     

    You could try a hard reset for that but if that doesn't work either, then you will need to take it back and get it fixed.

     

    Here is how to perform a hard reset of the notebook...

  • 01/09/19--16:33: 64 bit to 32 bit
  • I am trying to figure out how to factory reset my stream. Not enough room to do it. When I finally figure it out, can I fresh install windows 10 32 bit instead of 64 bit? It takes up a lot less space on the already tiny hard drive in this computer.

    Hi:

     

    Restart the PC, and enter this unlock passcode...

     

    e9lo7fv9x4

     

    If that code doesn't work, try this one instead...

  • 01/09/19--16:58: Re: 64 bit to 32 bit
  • Hi:

     

    The problem with installing a 32 bit OS, is that there may not be any 32 bit graphics driver.

     

    See this discussion for how to max out the usable hard drive space...

    You said the words...dual boot. Shrink the main partition in Windows and create a new blank space of at least 30 gigs or so. Run the Ubuntu installer and let it create partitions within that blank space. When I install Linux I create 3 partitions: root ("/") of maybe 10 gigs home ("/home") of 15-20 gigs and Linux swap of about 2 or 4 gigs. Linux will install its own bootloader called grub which will control dual booting. You will get a DOS looking screen on bootup that lets you choose to boot into Linux or Windows. By editing the grub settings you can make Windows the default so it boots to Windows if a certain time passes (which you can also set).  By doing this Windows and all other functions of the laptop will be unaffected. Right now my Linux installation on my personal laptop is on a virtualbox virtual machine rather than its own partition, which meets my needs to occasionally perform some task in Linux and is a much more flexible arrangement.

    It is a wise idea to sell your laptop with the contents of its SSD or HDD cleared. Otherwise, you will risk exposing all your personal data.You should erase laptop hard drive before selling. But deleting everything on the hard drive or formatting the disk does not means wiping everything on the target drive. After deleting or formatting process,  the data just becomes invisible to the operating system. With data recovery utility, anyone else can restore all your files from your laptop without challenge.

    Therefore, you need a professional hard drive wiper like AOMEI Partition Assistant Professional. It is compatible with Windows 10/8/7, can enable you to wipe data from SSD or HDD completely, and prevents data recovery possibility. More importantly,  you can also use it to create a boot media, then you can enter WinPE mode to wipe your system disk.
