Solved!

Thunderbolts slots are not working

HP Spectre x360 - 13-ap0799na
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I bought my HP Spectre x360 - 13-ap0799na device three months ago and since then my two thunderbolts ports are functioning. at first, I thought the issue is because of my HDMI hub (thunderbolt 3 to HDMI) so I have bought a thunderbolt flash driver and another thunderbolt hub. yet nothing changed. I cannot connect any device through the two ports. my windows is up to date, and so are all the drivers. thunderbolt controller, firmware, and driver are also updated and so it is my BIOS. Please anyone can advise what to do to solve this issue? PS: my device is still under warranty. Thank you all in advance.

@Firand,

 

Welcome to the HP Support Community!

 

I recommend you download and install the Thunderbolt controller driver from the below link and check if it helps.

If you continue facing the issue, then update the BIOS from the below link and check.

Follow the steps in the below article to update the BIOS.

Dear Lake,

Thank you for your response. it did not work out.

please advise how can i contact HP and send he Laptop for service.

 

kindly note: I stay in Nigeria and my device i belive is bought from HP UK.

though, i am pretty sure that the issue is software. when i bought the PC the thunderbolts were not functioning too well, but by removing and connecting a device (flash driver) to it it would work. so i have installed a new Windows 10 home version thinking it might save the issue. however, the two ports then stopped working entirely.

 

Thank you again for your assistance.

Firand
