HP PAVILION P7-1235: HP-P7-1235 upgrade to Windows 10 - worth a try?

Windows 7 Home Prem 64-bit
Bought: December 2012

HP - upgrade to Windows 10 desktop PC

It is said:
"If you bought your computer before August 2013, HP has not tested or developed the drivers for your computer model.» Some features may not work, or the installation may not succeed. »

It is interesting to try to upgrade to Windows 10?

Or it is futile and not worth trying?


The biggest problem you may encounter is that the audio probably does not work once you upgrade to W10.

Other than that, looking at the specifications for your PC it seems that all the other materials should work properly.

If you decide to roll the dice, and after installing W10, there is no audio data, you can try this driver below that worked for others with the same IDT audio chip.

This package provides the Tempo IDT High Definition Audio Driver for assumption of office models that are running a supported operating system.

File name: sp71717.exe

Here is a forum member that have fundamentally improved PC the same model as yours to W10.  Other than the sound works, he apparently had no other problems.

    I have a HP Pavilion tx2000 Notebook PC which has been successfully upgraded from windows vista to win8.1 pro. However, it was not upgraded to Windows 10. The message I got is like this:

    NVIDIA GeForce Go 6150

    Production of the display did not your screen compatible with Windows 10. Check with the manufacturer to surpport.

    That's why I'm here and ask for your help. I'm not a computer person and have no idea on what is NVIDIA GeForce Go 6150. The message means that I have no hope of getting Windows 10 unless you consider a new PC?  Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.



    Thanks for posting in the Forum from HP Support.

    Officially, your model does NOT support Windows 10 and there are no drivers for Windows 10


    It's a bit old for Windows 10, it was factory well before Windows 10 came to settle. In fact, Windows 10 has been designed not even when this model was released.

    I would recommend that you do not upgrade this model to Windows.

    If you plan to stay on the 8.1 Windows, it will be supported until 2023.

    If you plan to go back to Vista, it will rely on Microsoft until April 2017.

    There is a tiny chance to install Windows 10 by performing a clean install using the ISO method:



    After installation (if it fits) she can use a compatible driver for the video card and others. However, I do not recommend this and I would say that you stay with the current OS for this model.

  • HP Pavilion dm1 Notebook PC: no application upgrade for windows 10

    I don't have the application of upgrade of windows 10. I also had problems with upgrading to windows 7, although it seems to have fixed itself.

    MS showed no perceptible tendency on the plan which received the upgrade of Win10 application.  If you want to upgrade now, then use the tool of creation of media since the link and choose the option to upgrade the PC: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

    But until you do that, you should seriously consider making an image backup of your PC - because the GoBack function is known to be unreliable.  Suggest using Macrium Reflect:

    Macrium reflect (MR) provides a FREE version that can be used to image and restore partitions or drives together.

    What I recommend is the following:
    (1) download and install Macrium reflect (MR)
    (2) run M. and choose the option: "Create an image of the partition (s) required to backup and restore Windows" to write a full backup on an external drive
    (3) use the option to create a CD or a USB startup key

    NOW, you have the means to restore a full functional system of externally by car in a few minutes only.

  • Pavilion dv6-1216sa: Startup freezes after upgrade to Windows 10


    I upgraded my computer pavilion laptop Windows 10. Everything works fine EXCEPT at the start where it freezes about 15 seconds in Windows startup. I have to hold the power button to do a hard reboot, and then it starts always well the second time.

    This always occurs on a cold, but don't start not on restart, when it restarts fine without problems.

    I updated the Bios to the latest version and drivers that could be the cause, but I still have this problem. Any other ideas?



    It might help, I had the same problem and by disabling the quick start, it has been resolved. Go to control panel > power options > Control Panel. Click on "change settings that are currently unavailable" and the tick of the United Nations turn to the QuickStart area, click on save changes.  Turn off the switch and then back on and I hope that everything will be fine.

  • Pavilion d4495.se - has: failed to upgrade of Windows 8 to 8.1

    I have to prepare Windows 10, first upgrade Windows 8 to 8.1. The message I get is that it is not possible to upgrade the processor does not support the CompareExchange128. It's 2.2 gigahertz AMD Athlon 64 X 2 Dual core processor. Is there a fix or update available?


    Problems upgrading to win 8 to 8.1 Win with an Athlon 64 probably means that you will not be able to upgrade to Win 10.

    See this article from 2013 to Neowin. It seems that you can install Win 8.1 32bits.

    Anybody's guess if you can spend to Win 10 from there?

    I wouldn't go there. Probably a great loss of time and effort.


  • HP Pavilion DV6: HP Pavilion DV6 Sleep transmit Mode after upgrade to Windows 10 (go to sleep after two minutes of inactivity)

    I recently updated my laptop from Windows 7 to Windows 10. The upgrade went smooth and everything seems to work fine except for one annoying problem. After approx. 2 min of inactivity my post laptop goes into sleep mode and disconnects me. I checked all my power settings settings settings/sleep/screen saver... etc and I finished all updates to windows. I do not see all timers anywhere that requires an adjustment. Any help would be appreciated.

    Note: The laptop wakes up fine with no problems.

    For those who are interested. I found the solution by activating the 'system unattended Sleep Timeout' and then by changing this day here. The timer seems to have a pre-selection of 2 min for some reason any that was causing the problem together.

  • Allowing the use of UEFI in Firmware on a Pavilion P7-1235

    Greetings.  I'm trying to get the firmware in my Pavilion P7-1235 to recognize my hard drive and DVD drive as UEFI supported devices.  I'm looking to do this so that I can install Windows 8 (64-bit) with the support of GPT.  This will allow me to have more that 4 MBR partitions supports.

    The system is installed with Windows 7 (64-bit), and I believe that Firmware acknowledged the two features of UEFI support.  But since I wiped the drive in order to perform an installation of Windows 8 own/release to date, both devices no longer appear as 'UEFI Supported' devices in the firmware.

    In addition, when I press "ESC" during the initial start-up and attempt to select "Run UEFI request... ', nothing happens.  Through reading, I'm guessing that this is happening because I deleted the "HP_TOOLS" partition on the disk.  But I don't know if delete this partition is also the cause of my lack of support UEFI.

    Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    The score of "HP tools" is UEFI support and removing it causes your problems. If completely erase you the disk, rather than selectively wiping, you also deleted from your HP Recovery partition. I hope that you have already created your HP recovery disks so that you can recovery your computer to a factory State if necessary. Running the recovery discs HP can restore the partition HP Tools support and UEFI. If that does not do it, you may need to contact HP Customer Support to solve your problem.
