@Snl1

 

I'll be glad to assist you with this issue, to provide you with an accurate solution, I'll need a few more details:

 

 

Are you facing this issue after an update?

Have you tried any troubleshooting steps on your own?

 

Meanwhile, I suggest you download and run the HP Support Assistant from this Link: https://www8.hp.com/us/en/campaigns/hpsupportassistant/hpsupport.html?jumpid=va_r602_us/en/any/psg/p...

 

HPSA will automatically search for all the latest drivers for your Notebook

 

  1. Click My devices in the top menu, and then click Updates in the My PC or My notebook pane.

    Click Updates in the My notebook pane

  2. Click Check for updates and messages to scan for new updates.

     Updates list in HP Support Center

  3. Review the list of updates. Updates with a yellow information icon are recommended. Updates with a blue information icon are optional.

  4. Click the update name for a description, version number, and file size.

  5. Select the box next to any updates you want to install, and then click Download and install.

Also, ensure Windows is up to date.

 

Select the Start button, and then go to Settings  > Update & security  > Windows Update, and select Check for updates. If Windows Update says your device is up to date, you have all the updates that are currently available

 

Restart your PC.

 

Keep me posted, how it goes!

Boot-up :when HP flash screen displayed need to hit enter/space bar

@Raj1788 Many thanks.

 

Just to give you a bit of back ground and this laptop was not used that frequently.

The boot\bcd file used to get corrupted and I had to take some corrective measures so that it could detect my C: drive back again. This has happened few times. I think this problem appeared when it happened last time.

 

There are few things to note :

Initially when I bought this laptop I had window 8 and currently it is on windows 10. And I have not picked up some of the software updates.

 

I did re-install the support assistant from the support link. The icon show action display recommended action needed but there are no actionable items inside.

 

The windows update is up-to-date and looks ok.

 

The only thing that I have not done is that there were quite a few driver updates/BIOS update for wind 8.0/8.1 which was not picked up. And currently it is on Win 10.

Try updating the BIOS manually using the below link: 

 

Click here: https://support.hp.com/in-en/drivers/selfservice/hp-envy-ultrabook-4-1100/5296027/model/5305950

 

If the issue persists, Run a System test from the UEFI menu.

 

1. Turn on the computer.

2. Immediately press the f2 key repeatedly, about once every second, until the UEFI menu opens.

 

When the UEFI menu opens, select the diagnostic test you want to run, and then follow the on-screen instructions.

 

Keep me posted on the test result.

 

Have a great day!

Cheers 🙂
