Envy 850-150qe wont boot headless

HP Recommended
Envy 850-150QE
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I've tried many different strategies to get this computer to boot headless, but thus far if the monitor isn't on, it fails to boot. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Hello

 

Not aware of "headless".

 

How to know if PC boots with no video?

 

Please explain more.

 

Grzy

Hi,

There should be an option in BIOS called "halt on errors" or something similar. Try disabling this option and the computer should boot without monitor.

 

Let me know,

David

1) Correct, the computer will not boot without a monitor attached and on. (Headless)

 

2) The bios options are configured as you are saying where halt on post errors is set to false. 

 

Additionally, turning on the display when it is in this non-booting state results in no information on the sceeen, and post does not continue. It stays stuck.

Look into any "server" room.  You'll find many servers, but very few monitors, because most of the computers are "headless".  After the server boots, you can PING it, or use Remote Desktop to connect to it from any "client".

If the server does not boot, attach a monitor, and trouble-shoot it.
