When I start the laptop (HP HDX 16) I get this

The Windows edition listed in BIOS (Vista) is referring to the operating system that came with the computer. BIOS's System Diagnostics will always say the OS is Vista, because that is the original OS that HP put on the system. BIOS itself, however, cannot detect an operating system on the new Hard Drive because there is no operating system. In order to get an operating system, you have a couple options:

Depending on the terms and length of your warranty, you may be able to get HP to reinstall the operating system back onto the new Hard Drive. The amount you would pay depends on the warranty. Many warranties, however, become void when you change physical components in the computer (especially with laptops). If this is the case, you will have to try the next option.
You can buy a retail copy of Windows either online or from an electronics store. The price will depend on what edition you purchase, but it will probably cost you at least $100 US.
You can install a Linux operating system on your Hard Drive. If you've never heard of Linux, it is an operating system based on much of the same code as Mac operating systems, but has a more "Windows-like" feel to it. Linux operating systems are NOT the same as windows, and some programs that work in Windows will not work in Linux; you would need to find the Linux counterpart for these programs. One of the best things about Linux operating systems are that they are absolutely free to download, install and use. A very popular and stable Linux operating system is Ubuntu, which can be found at: http://www.ubuntu.com/

Beko HDMI no sound

The HDMI audio should be controlled by the video driver. You may need to change the audio output to get the TV speakers to get the audio from the HDMI signal. Open the Control Panel (Start > Control Panel with Windows 7 and Vista) and go to the Hardware section. Find the Sound section and click on the Manage Audio Devices link. In the Playback tab, right click on HDMI Output and try to make it the Default audio device. If you see a test option, check if you hear the audio from the TV speakers. For laptops, the usual default audio is the built-in speakers. I hope this helps. Cindy Wells

Trouble Loading my profile page.

To see if its a problem with you or not I would try downloading a different browser like google chrome and seeing if it does it there. I think that should fix your problem. If it does then uninstall and reinstall your current browser.

BIOS hangs at HP logo, can't access bios or boot settings

sounds like you lost your BIOS, you may need to find a way to get the BIOS on a bootable disc, then re flash you BIOS. the only problem is you need to know the maker of your BIOS, i have an IBM and Phoenix Technologies made my BIOS, i just downloaded a new version from the IBM website and reflashed mine, but if you get the wrong version you can destroy your motherboard.

Trying to copy DVD data discs to hard drive, some

Hi,

The first thing I thought of is that the discs could be scratched, but I doubt that's the problem.

Another possible problem (although unlikely) is that the discs themselves are bad. Sometimes they come with bad sectors, and don't always work.

Next idea could have to do with the burning process not being as perfect as it could. This could either be because of other tasks running during the burn, or burning at a too high speed.

I see that you said you've replaced the drive, so that pretty much rules that out. However, I do have one last suggestion that may help.

I've found that quite a few people have had problems with the Power2Go software, and that may very well be the culprit.

I suggest you download CDBurnerXP from HERE and try burning another disc. Make sure that when you do it, you have as few processes running as possible and do it at one of the lowest speeds possible. Oh and even though the program has "XP" in the name, it still works on Vista,7, etc.

Hope this helped :)

Laptop keeps shutting down immediately after trying to power up

Check the battery ..If the battery is not capable to keep power anymore..this will happen ..but the shut down will not be instant ..if it is instant than to blame is the cpu cooler ..probably it does not work anymore..and teh cpu gets to teh max temperature right the way and shuts the system down ..To fix that is to replace the fan ..another thing that you may check is teh ram memory ..sometimes if you make changes on them and they do not match perfect with the rest or so ..it makes issues on boot up .Just remove them all and try them one by one if they are more than one ..This way you will knwo if one is defective ..cause will not try to boot up ..If non seam to be affected ..just plug them well and start over cause it is possible to be just a matter of not making contact well and after you remove and place them back ...to work perfect

I have the disc for my Epsom dx3850 I want to install it onto my hp notebook via external CD player It just won't allow me to do it

In most cases it is preferable to download the latest installers from the manufacturer, as the CD is often out of date. If you use the CD, there is usually a Setup program on the CD that will install what it has. The setup manuals are here https://www.epson.co.uk/support?productID=1601#manuals

NO PC told nor OS told w can not guess PC nor what OS you run. not ever. make and model PC not told nor if using VGA/DVI/HDMI or DP connections. wow 14 years and finally fails.

USB ports, Nic cards, Monitor GPU ports , HDD and more, and all your choice on 2nd day owned. on desk top we just end sleep by hitting space bar (easy close wide key) or wiggle the mouse. or if set right in same place, the power button ends sleep pushed fast. on some old PCs, letting USB sleep, makes mouse and keyboard dead. (painful) mouse usb, fails. to unsleep in device manager,, go to mouse then right click properties on it. tab power management , allow this device to wake the computes. and do not allow hibernate mode, in power settings, it things can get ugly fast now the ELEMENT in the room. the PC came with XP I bet, 90% did and if upgraded and the PC maker does not allow, w7 or w8 or w10 at all then the drivers are bad. and bad drivers LOVE TO FAIL FOR Sleep. NO PC told no OS told hp 27,is what? nada see why here https://www.hp.com/us-en/shop/plp/access... the rear of a MON shows a tag with true model a desktop has 6 sides, one side has the tag, even bottom side. not told that. the monitor tag will show model and p/n or sku.# and nnnnnnnn#ABA the ABA is the true product number that also shows and tells options in it DAY1 new. like how many ports there are and what kinds of ports. and more. example (sorry googe will not let me see one year of 2007 monitors or Id guess better (grin) HP 27" 3UA74AA#ABA (LED,) so is newer, your is CCFL lamps, 2007 most are.
