If defeated by the left hinge - TouchSmart from HP ENVY 17 - j005ea Notebook PC

Hello world

Recently, when I opened my TouchSmart HP ENVY 17-j005ea book I noticed that the case falls apart.

I had the computer since December 2013.

Can someone please help?

Thank you


I managed to fix it myself, without the help of HP.

I removed the rubber foot near the left hinge where the case came out and found that the screw had worked loose causing the case to open it. I put the screws in place and the hinge works perfectly.

I am currently looking ways to prevent it from happening again.

Kind regards

  • How to enter the bios on a TouchSmart from HP Envy 15 t-j000?

    I have a HP Envy 15 t-j000 TouchSmart and I want to get into the bios. When I restart the computer just the HP logo appears.

    I tried to press ESC, F1 - F12, insert, delete, home, end... Nothing works.

    Do you know how I can do this?

    Thank you


    It may be difficult to get some machines with Windows 8 to enter the bios menu, but try the following.

    With the machine has already started in Windows 8, hold down the SHIFT key , and then click Shutdown - which should prevent hybrid shutdown.

    When the laptop has stopped, press f10 continuously (about 1 every half second tap) as soon as you press the power button and see if this gets into the bios menu.

    Kind regards

  • convert bootable discs made by my TouchSmart from HP ENVY 15 - j152nr portable for USB bootable

    Hello. I have a HP touchsmart, envy 15, and I am trying to restore the computer to factory default. About 6 months ago the computer said I could create a boot disk and use it to restore my computer to factory and after I did the boot disk, I can remove the recovery partition as it will be stored on the disk. So I moved forward and make the drive (it turns out be 4 discs) and the computer deleted the partition. Now I am here using factory restore disks, however, my optical drive is not detected when the bios is starting. For this reason, I need to run these 4 discs in a bootable USB drive. I looked everywhere and there are different ways to transform 1 usb drive, but not 4. Can someone help me? I would really appreciate it.

  • I need to get the recovery disc for my HP ENVY m6-1102sa Notebook PC


    I managed to delete my recovery manager by mistake on my laptop of HP ENVY m6-1102sa.

    I installed Windows 8.1 to see that I really really need to use for college courses and my teaching, the program will not work on the OS.  The site of the program informs me that the only way to solve the problem is to uninstall Windows 8.1 and use Windows 8

    As my recovery disk manager is deleted I can't find a way to restore the laptop provided with the OS Windows 8.

    I can't find anything on the site of HP to allow me to buy recovery disks.  Web site that Hp sent me to does not have the drivers for my laptop.  Can someone help me?

    Have you used this web document from HP on How to order recovery disks?
