HP Total Care Health Check does not update all the software needed

I buy just a dv5-1235 of Best Buy.  I opted against the installation of the Geek Squad so that I could 'get to know' my computer better.  I've burned the recovery disks, then ran HP Total Care 'health check '.  He did update a decent number of programs, but there are still a few updates that I found on the HP support site.  especially for the resident TV MediaSmart update 1a.  I found that in another thread because this would interrupt answer shortly after reboot.

I'm missing something on the health check.  Should he check the updates on all the stuff "HP" or is this something to check first, then go to the HP site to double check?

This is my first post in this forum so I used the search function to see if there are similar topics, but I do not see.  Not to say that they aren't there, but after a quick search I do not see.

So far, my birthday gift for me works MUCH better than my old laptop, a dell since 2001.  :-)

Advice would be appreciated.

HP TCA (Total Care Advisor) is bug, use it with caution.  Many of us turned off and check the updates on our own.

  • Computer is very slow and IE does not work all the time.

    I bought a computer from my old employeer.  He is doing all sorts of things, or should I say not to do all sorts of things.  It is very slow and IE does not work all the time.  They have questions arise and ask if the administrator oks things and other things like that.  It came with any disks.  I would like to wipe, clean and load a new disc, but I don't know where to find the disc or if I can do it.   Can someone please?

    Hello

    Proceed as follows to contribute to these two questions. You can probably buy the disks of Vista machine to system or get
    the former employer to do it for you if necessary.

    Try these and it can also be a good idea to update your main drivers later. The General corruption can also play a
    role in this issue. And even the TCP/IP stack might need to be refreshed.

    What antivirus/antispyware/security products do you have on the machine? Be one you ALREADY had on this
    machine, including those you have uninstalled (they leave leftovers behind which can cause strange problems).

    If no joy there's something blocking perhaps.

    Start - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - IE with no Addons - what works best?

    IE - Tools - Internet Options - Advanced - tab click on restore, and then click Reset - apply / OK

    IE - Tools - Internet Options - Security tab - click on reset all default areas - apply / OK

    Close and restart IE or IE with no addons

    not better?

    IE - tools - manage Addons (for sure disable SSV2 if it is there, it is no longer necessary but Java always install
    "(and it causes problems - you never update Java to go back in and turn it off again)." Search for other possible problems.

    Windows Defender - tools - software explore - look for problems with programs that do not look right. Permit
    are usually OK and "unauthorized" are not always bad. If in doubt about a program to ask about it here.

    Could be that a BHO - BHOremover - free - standalone program, needs no installation, download and run - not all
    are bad, but some can cause your question (toolbars are BHO).

    This leaves ONE of Windows updates, but it will not install the drivers who are generally older and cause

  • My driver support does not work all the time, won't let me connect, keeps losing internet connection.

    * Original title: SUPPORT of the PILOTS LOSE INTERNET.

    My driver support does not work all the time, won't let me connect, keeps losing internet connection.

    What do you mean by "driver support?

    If you have installed one of these offers of support software driver, you have installed malware.  The vast majority of them no useful software and installing a lot of malware on your computer.

    The drivers are not the soft thing you should normally be updated.  I recommend the updated drivers only in the case of a problem that has to solve, and it's rare.

    Is the ONLY source, you should consider for driver updates or OEM support site.  Even those who sometimes go way overboard in trying to update the drivers.  The latest Dell systems are equipped with updated software that checks for new updates every day.   In most cases, drivers are rarely updated after the first year of a product.

    Hi garybuyit,

    Just so I'm clear, updated you the graphics cards in Device Manager? You have access to a Windows XP installation disc. If so, follow the steps in this document to make a scan of the SFC. This analysis will attempt to repair or replace any missing or corrupted system files.

    This means that you don't have WRITE permission in the destination folder.

    You should:

    1. In Lightroom, determine the exact destination folder (it is on the right side of the import dialog box under Destination)
    2. Change the permissions in your operating system on this specific file WRITE permission; OR Change the destination folder in a place where you don't have WRITE permission

  • Photoshop CS5 does not remove all the layerset order...!

    Hello world!.

    Photoshop CS5 does not remove all the script layerset order...!

    Can someone explain why it happens...?

    app.activeDocument = theCopy;

    theCopy.layerSets.removeAll ();

    Thanks in advance.

    -yajiv

    The same reason that it is probably no command to remove all layers. You must write your own function if you want to do than IE:

    removeAllLayersets();

    function removeAllLayersets() {}

    var LSets = activeDocument.layerSets;

    var Count = LSets.length;

    for (var t = Count; t > 0; t-) {}

    LSets [t - 1] .remove ();

    }

  • Text entry box does not show all the text

    I'm creating a simple exercise where I want the user to copy text from the course, paste into word and report back what the number of words.  I thought that perhaps the text entry box would be the best way to go, since if you click the text (the default), you can copy it.  However after I place the paragraph of the text in the box and resize in the editor, until all of the text shows, it does not show all the text during playback is previewd or published.  It only shows the last words of the last row in the upper part of the box.

    Is there something that I am missing?  Or, is there a more easy/better way to do what I need?

    Thank you

    Hi all

    If it Captivate 4, there may be no need of a widget to do this. I'm guessing that you haven't tried allowing the scroll bar for the text of the entry (TEB) box?

    When I just plop a TEB on a blade, I get this in edit mode:

    During playback, it looks like this:

    But if I change the TEB properties and select the Show scrollbar option:

  • HP Photosmart D110a does not connect after the software update of the router

    I'll try a restatement of my first message:

    Two days ago I had problems with my Internet service provider modem.  This problem has been solved, but leads to a second problem still does not connect to the internet.  Then with the help of technical support D-Link, an update of the software has been downloaded to my wireless router and installed and now I can connect to the internet.

    But today, I had to use my printer/scanner for 2 1/2 year, HP Photosmart D110a, it is not connected through the above wireless router.  (The blue light on the printer blinks just).  Tech support says I'm out of warranty, so I hope someone can help me here on this forum.

    Thank you!

    Glad you got it to work, please mark it as Solution accepted so that others can search and find the answer too.
