HP Envy Windows 8.1 - Wireless button not working

[ Edited ]

Hi, I am having issues with the new 8.1 update

 

After I updated to Windows 8.1 from 8 my f12/wireless button no longer switched on and off my Envy's airplane mode. I have tried downloading the button driver from here: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?os=4132&lc=en&cc=ca&dlc=en&sw_lang=&product=5400...

 

It would not allow me to repair the files and instead gave me an error. I have now tried to uninstall and reinstall the driver but after uninstalling it gives me the same error message. Is there a fix for this problem or will I have to wait for an update of the driver?

 

Edit: Also the screen change button (the thing that does duplicate, split screen) is not working now either. :smileysad:

I also cannot get the updated wireless button driver to work on my HP Envy 14t-k000 under Windows 8.1.  I get an MSI error when trying to install.

For you I would recommend that you download and install the drivers I am linking below. They are the Windows 8.1 network drivers for your computer and should resolve the issue.

 

Realtek Local Area Network (LAN) Driver

Please feel free to re-post as to the outcome of this resolution.

Re: HP Envy Windows 8.1 - Wireless button not working

I think my product number is E0M45UA#ABL
Also the error I get when I try to install the wireless button is 1722.

You are actually experiencing 2 different issues here. We are going to need to resolve the 1722 error message first. Follow the steps I am listing below to fix the 1722 error, also ensure you are following the document called “Backing Up, Editing, and Restoring the Windows Registry (Windows 8)” before and during the process.

 

Backing Up, Editing, and Restoring the Windows Registry (Windows 8)

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&lc=en&docname=c03485724

 

*** ENSURE YOU BACKUP YOUR REGISTRY ***

 

Step 1. Using “Finding a registry item” in the above document find the following key HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa.

Step 2. You should see a multi-string value (REG_MULTI_SZ) named "Notification Packages".

 

If it does not exist, create it. Right-click in the right-hand pane and choose "New > Multi-String Value." PLEASE ENSURE YOU CHOOSE MULTI-STRING VALUE HERE

 

Step 3. Name it Notification Packages.

Step 4. Double-click on Notification Packages to edit it.

Step 5. Type the value scecli on the first line, then click OK.

Step 6. Close and save.

Step 7. Restart your computer.

 

After your computer reboots try to reinstall your driver.

 

Please re-post with the results of our troubleshooting.

Re: HP Envy Windows 8.1 - Wireless button not working

I tried finding 

HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa 

but I don't get anything. What should I do?

Okay lets try something different then. Lets try stopping and starting the Windows Installer Package by following the steps below.

 

Step 1. Press the "Windows key + R"

Step 2. In the "Open" box, type"msiexec /unreg", and then press ENTER.

Step 3. Press the "Windows key + R" again

Step 4. In the "Open" box, type"msiexec /regserver", and then press ENTER

 

Please feel free to re-post if you have any further questions or concerns.

Re: HP Envy Windows 8.1 - Wireless button not working

I installed the updated driver package for my network driver and that went ok, thanks.  I sitll can't use the wireless network button on my keyboard though to turn things on and off.  I am trying to install package sp63752.exe that I downloaded from the support page for my 14t-k000 laptop for Windows 8.1

 

Here's a screenshot with the error message I get:

ErrorMessage.png

 

 If I check in control panel I see that it's installed but it still doesn't work.  I then have to uninstall it and it asks me to reboot my system.

 

I do have the registry setting you suggested in the prior post (HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa\Notification Packages set as a REG_MULTI_SZ to scecli).

 

I think something is off on the installshield installation package.

 

One other thing of note, this is a fresh install of Windows 8.1 Professional, not an upgrade from Windows 8.

 

Thanks,

 

Sean
