ENVY 15-k008ne Notebook PC: my laptop does not completely turn off


When I have shutdown/Hibernate / standby my laptop, it will turn off completely.

All programs will be closed (when stop or restart) and I think that OS will also close. But the laptop will not turn off. Power LIGHT and fan will stay on.

And when I try to Hibernate, everything is ok, but I have the same problem.

Whenever I have to turn it off by holding the power button, otherwise the battery will be discharged.

After manual turn off, when I turn it on again, everything works correctly:

-If hibernation: OS will continue to last situation.

-If stop: OS works normally without error or warning.

After sleep, OS works from the beginning. Because the data stored in RAM and will be deleted after power off.

Perhaps a portable automatic perevent equipment turned off. All the drivers are up to date.

Is there a parameter/software to check and fix my problem?

Thank you


Try the following.

Open settings and select System.  Select food and sleep, and then click additional power settings - in the next window, click on "Choose what the power button" in the left pane.

In the next window, click on "Change settings that are currently unavailable" (close), then Remove the check mark from the box against 'Turn on a quick start (recommended) '.  Click on the button Save the settings, and then close the open windows and restart the laptop.

When windows has reloaded, download the driver directly from Intel IMEI on the following link, unzip the and run the installer.


Once the installation is complete, restart the laptop.

When the machine rebooted, re - activate the quick start and restart the computer once more - let Windows take over completely for a few minutes before checking.

Kind regards

  • Outlook Express 6.0 when I send an email, it seems that it does not completely turn off but it does and everytime I open OE, it turns off again and again and again, etc. Any ideas? Thank you

    I send an email, it does not completely turn off. A message that says that the task had not been completed, but no error message appears. The email goes off, and whenever I open OE it turns off again and again and again, etc. Any suggestions?

    Thank you

    You have the apparent corruption of dbx files, but an easy solution.

    Spend most of your messages out of the Inbox and then create new folders to send and sent items box after having moved the messages you want to save to a local folder that you create.

    Tools | Options | Maintenance | Store folder will reveal the location of your Outlook Express files. Note the location and navigate on it in Explorer Windows or, copy and paste in start | Run.

    In Windows XP, Win2K & Win2K3 the OE user files (DBX and WAB) are by default marked as hidden. To view these files in Windows Explorer, you must enable Show hidden files and folders under start | Control Panel | Folder Options icon | Opinion, or in Windows Explorer. Tools | Folder options | View.

    With OE closed, find the DBX files for the items in the Outbox and sent and delete them.  New ones will be created automatically when you open OE.

    After you're done, followed by compacting your folders manually while working * off * and do it often.

    Click Outlook Express at the top of the the folder tree so no folders are open. Then: File | Work offline (or double-click on work online in the status bar). File | Folder | Compact all folders. Don't touch anything until the compacting is completed.

    General precautions for Outlook Express:

    Do not archive mail in the receipt or sent items box. Create your own user-defined folders and move messages you want to put in them. Empty the deleted items folder daily. Although the dbx files have a theoretical capacity of 2 GB, I recommend all a 300 MB max for less risk of corruption.

    Information on the maximum size of the .dbx files that are used by Outlook Express:

    Disable analysis in your e-mail anti-virus program. It is a redundant layer of protection that devours the CPUs, slows down sending and receiving and causes a multitude of problems such as time-outs, account setting changes and has even been responsible for the loss of messages. Your up-to-date A / V program will continue to protect you sufficiently. For more information, see:

    Why you don't need your anti-virus to scan your email

    Note that for some AV programs, it may be necessary to uninstall the program and reinstall in custom Mode and uncheck analysis when the option is the result of e-mail messages.

    Compact often as specified above.

    And backup often.

  • HP Pavilion 15 laptop does not properly turned off

    Hi everyone, I am faced with a wireframe, annoying problem with my less than a month old HP Pavilion Notebook 15-p029tx.

    Sometimes, after pressing 'Shut Down', within the screen 2 seconds turns black, but the laptop would not extinguish itself, i.e. fan and power lights stays on always (once, I waited for 1 hour, like only the screen off & pc does not respond, occurs at the same time plugged / battery power). So, I press the power button for 5 seconds to turn it off. The next time he acts as restart, i.e. takes longer to boot and windows plays the startup sound.

    This kind of wired issue does not occur on every stop down. It happens probably once in two days of use. Standby, hibernation works very well.

    Configuration of the laptop: Pavilion 15-p029tx; 4 GB; Intel I3; 2GB NVIDIA; 8.1 Windows x 64 only language; 1 TB HARD DRIVE. Latest version of Windows, HP drivers, Antivirus updates are installed. PC is in good condition (defragmented HDD, registry, Ccleaner cleaning). Does not overheat is not possible: I have cooling pad and the weather is cold here.

    Steps I performed to fix the problem: Updated to latest Bios F.12; Reset bios default setting; made all the system from the bios, no found error diagnostics. Today, I run 10 stop test with different conditions, but it has never happened during the tests! Also all the usb ports give power during this gel.

    But I don't know, I would have to hold down the power button / stop again in the next two days.

    Experts please help me to resolve the issue, its very annoying when I'm in hurry, hurry to stop, lid closed, and next time, when I leave the laptop in the bag, it would always be running / power!

    Sorry for my bad English.

    I found the root of the problem. The culprit was Mcafee. After you remove Mcafee, it works well!

  • Pavilion 15-n005tu: laptop does not completely close down

    Hi, using the 15-n005tu Pavilion. The laptop can not completely stop, after the screen turns black, power light comes on over the wifi light. The fan on too. I tried to do an update of the bios and chipset, but this has not solved the problem. Kindly help...



    Try disabling the hybrid Windows 8 start - you can do the following.

    Right-click in the battery icon in the taskbar and select Power Options - in the next window, click on "Choose what the power button" in the left pane.

    In the next window, click on "Change settings that are currently unavailable" (close), then Remove the check mark from the box against 'Turn on a quick start (recommended) '.  Click on the button Save the settings, and then close open windows and stop the laptop by right clicking on the icon from the Start Menu, select prompt (Admin) and click 'Yes' to the uac prompt.

    Type (or copy and paste) the following command (including spaces) and click Enter.

    Shutdown /s /t 0

    Start the laptop and let Windows take over completely for a few minutes before checking if it is now shut down properly in the Start Menu.

    If this has fixed the problem, it may be useful by turning the quick start back on - sometimes simply remove and re-create the file will solve the problem.

    Kind regards

    You could try a refresh of Windows 8. Please read the entire document before performing. This could restore all the settings on the PC.

    Hey @priya_17,

    A system restore would return the laptop to an earlier time when things worked ok. An update can sometimes what you see. A hiccup in the system so to speak.

    So, if restore you it, it will cancel the hiccups.

  • Hall 13: HP pavilion laptop does not connect to the printer HP envy range 7640

    My laptop does not connect to my HP envy printer. It keeps saying the driver is not available or is it ready, but does not connect. I know the printer is working because I can print from my phone. Anyone know the driver I need to download or what to do?



    Let me welcome you on the HP forums!

    I read your post about the problems with your Envy 7640 in Win10 printer and wanted to help.

    The problem is that by default HP print drivers installed by the upgrade of Win10 often do not work.  I have two HP printers and neither one worked after the Win10 upgrade.  We also receive a lot of messages of other people with the same problems.

    I linked the page drivers and software for the Win10 drivers for your printer: http://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/hp-envy-7640-e-all-in-one-printer-series/6617267/model/6617268#Z7_3054ICK0K8UDA0AQC11TA930C7

    You must download and install the full feature software and drivers for the printer.

    Then unplug the printer and install the software.

    Do reconnect the printer until the installation program invited to do so.

    Once the installation is complete, restart.

    You should then be able to use your printer in Win10.

    Good luck

    Thank you


    Your hard drive is failing, fast (these things last forever). You need to replace as soon as POSSIBLE. If you have important data on what cannot be replaced I suggest you plug it into another computer as an external drive and pulling all the data you need it off.

    If you do not have the possibility to connect the drive directly on another PC, you can download a live Linux CD/USB.

    Step 1: Acquire a blank CD or USB. If you use a USB port, format it in FAT32.

    Step 2: Insert your chosen in your PC Backup media.

    Step 3: Download Unetbootin.

    Step 4: Select a distribution in the drop-down list. Just about anything will work, but for your application, I would recommend "Puppy Linux".

    Step 5: Select your media.

    Step 6: Once Unetbootin is complete, insert your media in the PC is installed on the corrupted hard drive.

    Step 7: Boot puppy. (You may need to select your Flash DRIVE or a CD in your BIOS)

    Step 8: The use of the included file manager, mount the hard drive and browse for the files you need. You can then save these on another DRIVE or a CD drive, or the internet.

  • I have a HP Pavilion notebook. My system does not detect my sd card and I can't eject. Help?

    Original title: undetected sd eject not

    I have a HP Pavilion notebook. My system does not detect my sd card and I can't eject. Help?

    From my understanding, most laptops allow you to simply remove the SD card back.  Others have a simple spring mechanism that requires you to press the memory card slightly until you hear a "click", similar to a click on a retractable pen, which must eject the card.

  • Compaq CQ58 computer 301SA laptop does not connect to 50Ghz band on router

    My laptop does not connect to the band 50Ghz on my router dual-band. I know that my router Netgear dual band diffuse 24 and 50 Ghz, but the laptop only shows the 24 Ghz band depending on availability.

    I have a Compaq CQ58 301SA Notebook PC, Windows 8 (64 bit OS).  It has a Ralink RT5390R 802 11bgn network adapter and a Realtek ethernet network adapter. I use the laptop wireless, for example using the Ralink connection and it connects easily to the 24 GHz band, but I want to broadcast TV programs and movies smoothly, for which, I understand that the 50Ghz band is preferable. I pay my ISP (Virgin Media) for a connection to Super-fast broadband but my laptop seems to be limited to the 24 GHz band. Seems to be the case if I work with the adapter Ralink wireless or wired with Realtek ethernet connection.

    This problem can be corrected? If so, how? What I have done research on the web, the problem seems to be network adapters. Can they work on the 50Ghz band? Or do I need to download another adapter (if so, which?) Or use an adapter external network I plug into a USB port?

    Driving me crazy...


    The Ralink RT5390R 802 11bgn is a map of the only band (2.4 GHz) only.

    Whenever you see a labeled bgn wireless card, it is a single band card.

    Cards labeled dual band abgn or agn.

    The maintenance manual (Chapter 3, page 19) does not indicate that any internal dual band card is supported, so you would probably have to go with an external usb dual wireless adapter.


  • HP dv7-3085dx power light flashes, but the laptop does not work.

    Hello! I have a HP Pavilion dv7-3085dx. It has a hard drive Bay 2.

    Recently, I bought the caddy + cable kit and an Intel SSD. The thing is, when I plug the sata cable to the motherboard for the laptop, and the SSD to it, the laptop does not light. When I press the power button, it flashes once (the power LED flashes once), but the laptop does not light. When I press again, nothing happens.

    I tried to remove the power supply plug, battery and plug it all again, but the power light flashes once (when you press the power button) and no reaction.

    Maybe it's the sata cable: when I remove the new cable and connect the SSD with the sata cable on the 1 hard drive Bay (the cable supplied with the notebook), it works fine. The laptop starts. And when I connect the former sata cable, with the SSD on the second hard drive Bay, it also works.

    I just want to now what is the flashing light means light? Why it does not work with the new cable?

    Thanks in advance! Sorry for my bad English...


    It is possible that this is a problem with the kit. I would recommend to download and install the latest BIOS update for your laptop, using the download at the following link: http://goo.gl/rbHkg

    If it still doesn't work after that, I would recommend to suppress the kit for a replacement or to try another.
