I plugged a USB 3.0 express card into the wrong socket on motherboard. Now runs very slowly. Seems to have screwed up the video. I think I need to replace motherboard. How do I find correct one. I tried the ctrl+alt+s, no results.
Tried to run system health report but got error. Timed out.
Solved! View Solution.

It's running ok I guess, but still slow. Takes 14 min to boot. Fixed the freezing problem. Useable now.

your computer has 1 DisplayPort video port and 1 VGA video port.
This implies that you have "onboard" video.
Can you try an "add-in" PCI-E video card, in one of the PCI-E x16 slots:
• 3 full-height PCI
• 1 full-height PCIe x1
• 2 full-height PCIe x16
First, try the PCI-E slot that wa NOT used to connect that USB card.
This will disable the "onboard" video, and may bypass your problem, at a lower cost than replacing the motherboard.

It seems to work a little better now. I still get some funny slow downs in some areas. I can live with this.
How do I find out what the info is on the motherboard if I decide to replace it?

to see if they contain the HP part-number.
Then, see: http://PartSurfer.hp.com
to see if it still can be purchased -- probably for the same price as you paid when you bought the whole computer.
The philosophy is "if you NEED it, and can pay TOP-DOLLAR for it, we have it".

Are you clicking the 'Options' that is associated with your own 'Reply'?
You should see 'Accept as solution', but it is "greyed-out".
What other values are displayed under that "pull-down" ?
