Update - no changes to context

Correct the name for the HP Support Agent

Add comment :  Use of HPVA is not tied to Warranty Status

 

It's possible the Agent is down in your region.

It doesn't happen very often but it is certainly possible.

If you have not done so, try Restarting the computer and possibly your network router, too.

Will that work?  Unlikely, but it might and takes only a few minutes to test / try.

 

IMPORTANT

If the HPVA is not available and / or is not able to answer reasonable requests, it is possible the interface is down.  There is no alternative but to wait and try another time.  The HPVA is NOT within the control of the Community.  We have no way to “go around” the process.  Usually, if the HPVA is down on the weekend, normal operation will resume by Monday morning.

 

Method – Example > Search Compatible Product(s) using the HP Virtual Agent - HPVA

 

 Open >  HP Virtual Agent 

 

OR

            Consumer systems can (also) open the agent at the product's homepage.

            Consumer Notebook Examples:  Notebook, Pavilion, Spectre, Envy, and others

 

  • Open the Support Home for your Computer.
  • Click / Open the Virtual Agent (lower right corner of the homepage screen / web page).

 

Next..

  • Wait for the Virtual Agent to be ready to receive your question at the bottom of the page.
  • Ask your question – For example, ask:  “Which dock is compatible with my computer?” or “Which pen is compatible with my computer?”
  • Follow the prompts, answer the questions.
  • NOTE that in most cases, it is enough to search at the "series" level, or select a model similar to yours from the list within your model series.
  • Note that a compatible product result does not guarantee the HP Store carries that product in stock.
  • Use of the HP Support Agent is Not tied to Warranty status.

 

  • Thanks for using the HP Virtual Agent.

 

What else?

If your computer is still in Warranty, you can open a Case with HP Technical Support.

 

HP Support - Technical Support for Devices in Warranty

 

Case submission to HP Support is available to those whose devices are registered and still in Warranty.

 

For the rest of us, this is not an option.

HP Support does not generally provide free service for out-of-warranty devices.

Our Community is not HP Support; we do offer help free of charge.

hello

thank you for your help, but there's a question now, and it's that if the warranty has expired then the virtual assistant will not work? I have this question as my warranty expired in the last month and is that the reason why the virtual assistant tab on the bottom left corner of the Hp Assistant application is now greyed-out (frozen)?

Unfortunately, I have no way to make this work for you.

The agent is not in the control of the Community.

All I can do is provide a reasonable explanation of why it might not work at a given time.

These assumptions are based on what we have seen in the past.

 

Regional differences impact performance.

 

For example, because it works for me in the USA has absolutely no bearing on whether / when / if the agent is working in your region. 

 

In all cases that I can remember, the agent does eventually recover. 

HP does not apprise us of the condition of the HPVA service (working or not).

 

 

If you wish to do so,

Open a new thread about whatever issue you are having and ask for help with that subject.
