HP Pavilion dv7 Notebook: driver issues - can anyone help?

You are the very welcome.

There should be a page for support and driver for your model specific dv7.

You must enter the product number in the appropriate box on the link below and then be directed to the support page and drivers for your specific model laptop.


Do not know the product number?   Please use this guide to find out.


If none of the usb ports work and other problems, the only suggestion I can offer would be to back up your files and perform a recovery of the system to the factory specifications.

It could be anything and it would probably take less time to do a system reset in order to try and find the root cause of the problem.

  • Radeon AMD in Pavilion dv7 notebook driver problem

    I have a pavilion dv7 notebook and for a few months, I had problems with my graphics driver.

    It began with a notice that my license was expired, so I went on the AMD website and tried to install the update. I ran dxdiag to find tool that I use an AMD Radeon HD 6620 G graphics card. I could not find my product on the list to manually install the update, so I tried the Downloader tool from amd driver and he had a problem of recognition of my graphics card. I then tried to update with the help of Support HP and that seemed to work for a while.

    Yesterday my screen changed the lowest resolution and a notice came it was not recognizing my graphics driver. Yet once, I tried to update manually from the AMD Web site. When this does not work I downloaded the driver AMD Downloader and after installing everything he said is that "your computer does not contain a correct graphics card" and closed the program.

    I am lost at this point uterally, and any help would be greatly apreciated.

    WARNING *.

    This is NOT official HP customer service and I, like most other people on this forum do not work for HP. It is a forum for users of peer-to-peer supported for class for the HP consumer products. HP maintains no official presence on this forum and it is unlikely that HP will respond in an official capacity. Response of an employee of HP represents his own opinion and not that of HP.

    AMD does not support the graphics system from HP to address personalized and won't provide any drivers for it. As a general rule, HP does not provide "routine maintenance" updates and usually only releases updates to fix known problems. You could take the computer to a professional, however they will be able to do anything more than I suggested and maybe even not so much than that.

    If you have any other questions, feel free to ask.

    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.

    I recently installed a scanner cared (about 2 weeks ago), but honestly don't remember if I had sound for a while before that.  Yesterday, I installed a new program from Nikon for a new camera, I got.  We have also reinstalled Trend Micro last Friday and have performed a thorough analysis.

  • Keyboard problems - the circumflex accent keeps jumping around while I type! HP Pavilion dv7 Notebook PC

    Product name: HP Pavilion dv7 Notebook PC

    Product number: B1W89EA #ABU

    Operating system: Windows 7 64-bit

    I have made no recent changes.


    Everything by typing the caret keeps jumping to the top of the screen so that the text I'm in the mid typing eventually disappear to a random position longer than the top of the page, I already typed in the middle of the text.

    For a few weeks, I assumed that it was just me slipping, as I only started using the shortcut ctrl + arrow keys to scroll the text easier. However, I am becoming very sure that this is not the case because it happens to average flow by typing quite normal (i.e. not involving not the arrow keys at all!).

    I didn't have this laptop last summer, but I'm a finalist uni and REALLY rely on my laptop. I type a lot, and it's really annoying and inconvenient

    Hello NerdWhale.  I understand that you are having problems with your keyboard.

    You should try to remove the keyboard and reset the laptop hard driver.  This will force the material in order to be reset.  Try the following.

    1. Click Start, type "Device Manager" and press ENTER.
    2. Expand the section of keyboards.
    3. Right-click on each device and select uninstall.
    4. Shut down the laptop.
    5. Remove the battery and AC power.
    6. Press and hold the power button for 15-20 seconds, three times.
    7. Replace the battery and AC power.
    8. Start Notepad and allow Windows to reinstall the drivers.
    9. Check whether the problem is resolved and post the result.

    I'll keep an eye out for your answer.  Have a great day!

  • HP Pavilion dv7 Notebook PC does not play video streaming


    I have a brand new HP Pavilion dv7 Notebook PC, Intel (r) Core i7-2630QM CPU, 8 GB, Windows 7 Home Premium operating system, Service Pack 1 64-bit. Beats audio, Radeon graphics card

    It does not play Netflix streaming - the screen is dark, even though the video seems to play, and there is no sound.

    It does not play videos YouTube - video playback but the sound is off. It goes the same for Megavideo and other streaming services.

    On the other hand, he plays the music very well on the native Windows Media Player. I have not tried video on my laptop.

    I make me quite frustrated and don't know what to do. Does anyone have an idea if this is a problem of HP, beats, or Windows 7 (or a combination of all three)?

    At this point, I am considering doing a restore of the entire system and starting from scratch. Any help is appreciated.

    Eihalcon, welcome to the forum.

    It seems that you have not installed Adobe Flash Player .  At least, I suggest to start with that as a possible solution.

    Please let us know if this solved your problem or not.

  • I deleted the boot camp trying to resize the hard drive on my mac pro book. now, the computer does not start without a bootable device, which I don't have, and any download must be on a windows machine. Can anyone help

    I deleted the boot camp trying to resize the hard drive on my mac pro book. now, the computer does not start without a bootable device, which I don't have, and any download must be on a windows machine. Can anyone help

    1. did you remove Bootcamp using disk utility?

    2 have you tried local restore or recovery of the Internet? - OS X: on OS X Recovery - Apple Support . Mac with built-in optical drives may need 'Gray' disks to boot the system.

  • Hello. I created an image of HD main on a hard drive external drive. It is: HD used 282 GB 320 GB, disk backup image has 251 gb. Is all backed up? Can anyone help on this? Thank you

    Hello. I created a disk image of my mac HD on an external hard drive. It is: my mac HD is used 282 320 GB, backup disk image, I did a 251 gb. Is all backed up? I need to be sure before you reformat the HD and install mac so original. Can anyone help on this? Thank you

    Probably not.

    Need an external hard drive as large or larger than the drive you want to back up.

    You have not said what backup software you are using.

    I use Carbon Copy Cloner by https://bombich.com/ $40.00 there. You can also use Super Duper.

    These two products will make a bootable backup complete or a clone of you existing hard drive, including your recovery partition.

    Once you made the backup, if your hard drive has never been to fail, you could simply start on the external backup drive.

    If you back up because you're upgrading the hard drive for an SSD, you can put the SSD in an external enclosure and clone your drive in the SSD, test it, and then replace the HD when you are confident that it works well.

    P.S. External hard drives are cheap these days. Here is an example: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/wd-my-passport-ultra-1tb-external-usb-3-0-2-0-portab le-hard-drive-classic-black/7869174.p? id...
