Good day. Recently I bought a new HP Pavilion Gaming 17-cd1024ur 29A06EA . I installed Windows 10 and all the drivers myself. Everything was ok. The next day the notebook freesed on logo screen. I rebooted the computer and then it loaded normally. I rebooted several times and it loaded ok. However, the following day everything repeated. It freesed on logo screen again, I rebooted it, and then the notebook worked good. What can be a problem? Why do I have to every evening reboot the notebook one time?
This laptop came with Win10 already preloaded, right?
I'm sorry, but HP only warranties their PCs for usage with the OS that comes preinstalled. IF you replace that with a different OS version, then you assume full responsibility for maintaining that -- including solving any problems with booting the other OS and/or installing the other OS.
My suggestion is that you restore the PC to its original condition using a factory reset:
Here are the following ways to accomplish a factory reset: 1) Factory reset using internal HP image 2) Factory reset using external HP image you make 3) Factory reset using external HP image you buy
Each of these is discussed in some detail below ...
---------- Factory reset using internal HP image ---------- HP preloads most PCs with a compressed Windows Image that can be used to completely restore the PC to its original condition. This image is contained in the Recovery partition, and if it is intact, it will generally work well.
To do this, you press the Esc key repeatedly while rebooting and when the HP Startup Menu appears, you select the option to do the reset -- usually F11. This will take a couple of hours or more to complete and when done, your PC will start over with initial setup screens. That means that EVERYTHING previously on your PC will have been erased: accounts, settings, personal data, applications, drivers.
NOTE that the disk drive has to be in excellent condition or this will fail. So, BEFORE you do this, instead of pressing F11 as above, press F2 to run diagnostics. If the disk test passes, you should be able to run the reset.
---------- Factory reset using external HP image you make ---------- HP provides a Cloud Recovery tool that you can use, together with a 32GB USB stick, to create your on HP reset media.
This works the same as the factory reset described above.
---------- Factory reset using external HP image you buy ---------- For those PCs not supported by the Cloud Recovery, in some cases, HP offers Recover Media for sale. This can not be downloaded; instead, it must be ordered from HP.
HP Recovery Media is a set of DVDs and a CD, or USB stick, that will erase the hard drive (removing all data, settings, and applications, reinstall the original OS, drivers, and some HP Utilities.
In some cases, you may be able to order a USB stick instead of disks.
Once there, input your Product name or number. On your Software and Drivers Download page, select your Operating System and and Version. Click "Update".<br><br>If HP Recovery Media is available for your machine, down near the bottom of the page, you will see an entry for Order Recovery Media-CD/DVD/USB. Click the "+" symbol to expand that entry and click on Order Media for details.
Or, if you prefer, you can do the same by contacting HP Customer Support.
