ENVY of HP dv7 Notebook PC: Windows 10 compatibility issues

I want to be the new operating system Windows 10. Apparently, this is going to be a compatibility issue with my laptop. I have the AMD Radeon HD 7640 G graphic card. It seems that Windows 10 do not like it. How can I fix this problem before the release date in July? Thank you.


This is a preliminary read Microsoft and won't say there are problems that can be supported with the official version.  Just be sure that you have the most recent driver for now.

Win 10 drivers will be released by the factory eventually so keep not prevent you to Win 10.

    If you do not, use another PC to create a rescue CD Windows 7.  Download the ISO relevant among the links below.

    Windows 7 32 bit

    Windows 7 64 bit

    You must use an app like ImgBurn to burn the ISO to a CD - a guide on the use of ImgBurn to write an ISO on a disc is here.  One time created, or if you already have this, typing away at the esc key when you launch Notepad to open the Start Menu.  Insert the rescue CD.  Select boot options (usually f9), use the arrow keys to select the CD/DVD drive and press ENTER.  You can also get a prompt to "Press any key to" continuous - it if requested.

    When loading, select repair your computer and choose the command prompt.  When this charge, enter the following commands and press on enter after everyone – including spaces as shown.


    bcdedit/export C:\BCD_Backup

    Thank you for your request!

    I understand that your computer has been constantly icy and very slow. When you have verified the device displays error 31 on a USB controller Manager.  It started after the Windows 8.1 classification.  To help you more effectively, I need the Envy DV7 specific model do you have? Computers laptops HP - how can I find my model number, serial number or product?.

    Do you have a rear roll of 10 Windows to Windows or did you reinstall from a retail copy or perform a recovery?  Have you done all your Windows updates, after the downgrade?  You ran the HP Support Assistant?

    Try this for USB:

    • Go to the Device Manager

  • ENVY of HP dv7 Notebook PC: install Windows 8 discs HP

    I just ny laptop from HP repair center a week ago and I already had to perform a system reset.  I tried to reset my laptop and the message I got was, ' cannot reset no, because no disk partition detected ".  I called HP and they could not help, they told me that I have to reinstall Windows 8 and they post the discs to me.  HP blamed the problem of the partition on the fact that I had Windows 8 is installed and then I downloaded Windows 8.1 store Windows and it screwed in place the parition.  This answer has any sense at all to me.

    As I mentioned earier, HP is mailing me new Windows 8 discs. However, the technical support representative HP told me that the discs do not come with a product key.  How can I perform a clean installation without Windows product key?

    Yes at the time the upgrade of the OS is corrupt or delete the recovery partition, especially when it formats the disk.  It is always better to create recovery disks when you get the computer.

    The key of Windows 8 is embedded in the BIOS and not need to know the key when you reinstall, the installation will recognize the key.  If you want to know what your key, download Belarc Advisor, and it will give you all kinds of information about your computer: http://www.belarc.com/free_download.html

    It is best to upgrade to 8.1 Windows because it is more stable and with the new Windows 10 to come this year you will be eligible to get the free update if you are running 8.1

  • Envy of HP dv7 Notebook: failed to create the recovery disk.

    I have a HP ENVY Notebook dv7. When the computer was new, I tried to make a record of retrieving the value. When finished, I would check out (DVD - R) discs, I would get a message saying that disks has not written correctly. I tried three different packs records, always the same. Called HP Support and they went through the process with me, always the same failure. I was told not to worry if I still have the discs because of an accident, they would send them to me for free because they have a record. Now, I'll use this computer mostly on the internet and think I should have just in case records. Called HP and was not said no record, no free drives and it will cost a lot to make them help the discs. Is it possible to make records or put the info on a hard drive? I don't know if the computer thinks that I made a copy or not, because the copies, I thought I was doing were defective.

    @SAWANG ,

    I brought your question to the attention of a team within HP. They are likely to ask for information from you to get your information or product serial number. Please search for a private message from a contact HP identified. Also, remember not to publicly post information and series numbers.

  • Envy-15: Downgrade new notebook with Windows to Windows 7 (drivers) 10

    Hi, I just bought a new laptop with 10 Windows preinstalled as the base OS.

    For various reasons, I want to upgrade to Windows 7. I have an authentic copy of the retail of Windows 7 with a valid license key. What I really need is drivers for Windows 7. I prefer to do this by creating a separate partition, but I'm open to a full erase of the disk.

    I've tested. I created a new partition, installed Windows 7 (it is not drive C). I immediately found the drivers to be a major issue. Much of the original Win 10 drivers will be not even install on Windows 7. Some keys, such as the USB controller and the graphics are not found. Windows Update does not have both. Thus, for example, nothing is detected when I connect via a USB port. Another problem is that when I started in Windows 10, he couldn't restore anything from the recovery partition D. I don't know if I made a mistake, Windows is confused, or what happened. In this spirit, I restored the image of the system from a backup made a week in advance.

    (P.s. I know that Win 10 drivers are available on the Web site. If you install Windows 7 after that Win 10 is a problem (for example 7 not seen the C drive, I am open to wipe the disk entirely, starting with 7, which makes my base OS, if I can get drivers, then add 10 win.) Also, I have a valid license key to win 10 outside this new laptop and really have the driver support. I have several system images and history of files is active, so I can return if necessary.)

    I'd appreciate any help!

    Thank you

  • ENVY of HP dv7 Notebook PC: blinking cursor


    I did the upgrade of Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 - everything was working fine until yesterday

    I now have a blue circle that flashes all the time near the cursor.
    Because of this problem I can't make a selection with a choice of multiple, or even working with the search option, because each character I type is disappaering.

    to explain a bit more: when I was this Message that I had to choose the operating system, and I got to work with the arrows to choose the 10 Windows.

    I've had this a few weeks already, and that I had put my laptop to 8.1 Windows and redo the upgrade to Windows 10.

    Can you help me please

    Dear Sir

    I just put my pc back to factory settings, and I'm busy now to reinstall all my software.

    I guess that is the best that I stay in 8.1 and do not do the upgrade of Windows 10.

    Thanks for all your time that you dedicate to solve my problem.

    I there will come back if I still have problems, but I guess that everything will be resolved once completed.

    Best regards
