Problems of the HP Pavilion dv4-1155se

I am having some problems with my HP Pavilion dv4-1155se sound.

The problem is the sound distorts when reading there.

The distortion is not always present but it distort once or twice every minute even when only applications that are running are "windows media player" and "windows sidebar".

I have not noticed any difference with the distortion when the processor is running at a higher load.

This laptop is only 3 weeks and I just installed google talk and google chrome.

Help will be appreciated.

What do you mean by 'distortion '. Is it crackling, getting completely, something else? The problem only occurs through the built-in speakers or is it so when you plug head phone? If it doesn't happen out of the speakers so it could be a problem of speaker and you will need to have serviced it. If this happens off helmet too then this is probably a problem with audio card. If it's a problem of sound card so I will try to reinstall the driver of the RECOVERY Manager (I think the driver for this model is conexant high definition audio driver). If THIS does not work, then it could be Wireless interference. Some DV4 do not have enough shielding between the Wi - Fi cards and audio and this causes reactions. Find the switch wireless on the laptop and turn it off. If you turn off the wireless and the distortion disappears all of a sudden, then you know that this is your problem. If you have a DV4 without enough armor and you are still in warranty, you sent him have this fixed.

  • Pavilion dv4-1155se blink Code


    I have a HP Pavilion dv4-1155se that turns off randomly. I noticed that the Caps/Scroll Lock button flashes 4 times when I try to turn it back on. After a few tries more I am able to re - turn on the computer and use it as usual.

    So, that means the code? I found this link, which indicates that it might be the "Graphics controller not functional. Is this true for the dv4-1155se?

    Thank you.

    Yes, those who blink codes are for your model.

    It is to have some kind of graphic problem.

    As a last resort, you can try a bios update if there is a newer than the currently installed version.

  • Looking for parts for HP Pavilion dv4-1155se

    I have a HP Pavilion dv4-1155se laptop which works very well! No problem at all... except for one thing. One of the children fell on the right rear corner and broke the monitor casing and bent the hinge. The LCD still works fine, but it is only half attached the bottom of the case.

    I need to find replacement parts at reasonable price. I think I would need the largest part of the whole of the screen under the screen itself. This is the model of "be" with the black and blue case graphics on it. I would get the same thing if I can. Anyone know where to buy these pieces for a good price? Or is there a list of part numbers that I could do a google search for? All I could find so far are LCD screens that I don't need.

    Here's the manual for your interview with reference numbers.  See if that helps.

    I've been on ebay see what would correspond to your computer.  There are a lot of things out there.  For most bronze. A couple of black people.  There is an a black right now that the owner spilled vodka top and it has stopped working. But the case is perfect and it's cheap.  You might want to look around on ebay in the components of the computer.  You might not get the blue graphics.

  • Problem with the HP Pavilion Bluetooth and Windows 8.1

    I have a new HP Pavilion (approximately 6 weeks) 15-n205AX running windows 8.1.  Can I connect my android phone with it, but when I try to send a picture from phone to the laptop it says failed to connect.  (But I can do okay on my old laptop so doubt the problem is the phone).  I removed the device and re-paired several times, apparently successfully, but still cannot send pictures.

    Any thoughts?

    Hi NellyG. I understand that your Bluetooth will pair, but fails to connect when you try to send a photo. Read this for tips or tricks for using Bluetooth: Bluetooth (Windows 8) devices use.

  • Problem with the HP Pavilion e033tx-15 Notebook shutdown/restart/sleep

    I had windows 8 OS 64-bit working fine with my HP Pavilion Notebook 15-e033tx.

    I had problems, so I decided to update my drivers. I already had BIOS VersionF.08 and the hp support page has shown that there is an update of the bios to VersionF.21.

    After updating the bios the problem started when I stop lighting and the laptop into sleep mode kindof. I have to hold the switch down to foce him close. If I restart it, it says "reboot pc", goes blank and then all power off, and it's not stopped.  and if I SLEEP, he's not waking up.

    I rolled back the bios and it fixed the issue.

    Then I freshly installed win pro 8.1, and it has only VersionF.21 of the bios available.  Same problem again.

    HP Support Assistant showed that a new bios update Insyde F.22. But the problem is still there.

    I searched other posts with similar problem and I can't seem to solve this problem. Help, please.

    Henrico Hello and welcome on the HP Forum!

    I understand that you have a problem with the BIOS.  I'll try my best to help you solve this problem. I suggest following the procedure described in this document for the restoration of the BIOS .

    If this does not resolve this problem then restores the version F.08 driver it should always work for Windows 8.1.  Here is a document for more information of the device to Windows 8 Manager which explains how to roll back the driver. It will be the same steps for Windows 8.1.

    I suggest Using HP Support Assistant (Windows 8) to change your settings for manual update. This allows you to choose what you want updates.

    I hope that this information help, please let me know how it goes.

    Thank you and have a great day!

    This is the original factory specifications for your computer HP laptop Pavilion 15-e007tx. Based on these specifications, install this model factory with FreeDOS. It seems that a Windows operating system has been installed and some USB ports do not work properly. Please provide the name, version, and the "bit" version of the operating system currently installed.

    If you use Windows 7, please download and install the USB 3.0 driver: controller driver eXtensible host of Intel® USB 3.0 for the family of chipsets Intel® 8 series/C220 to see if that solves your problem. Also provide Windows Device Manager "Hardware ID" for any remaining missing or unknown devices, as shown in the example below.

    2 dual core processors? someone told me that was weird, but I don't know

    I have a screen shot somewhere

    Imen im will provide 4 screenshots

    If you look at site driver from Intel, it is no all W8 drivers for the graphics card in your laptop, so I don't know even how HP can have one.

    My advice if does not work driver W8 would install the W7 of Intel driver - manually if auto installation does not work.

    Use it for automatic installation: * & DownloadType = drivers

    Use this one for the installation manual (unzip and navigate to the driver folder, as you did with the W8 driver). * & DownloadType = drivers

  • Problem with the HP Pavilion dv6563cl


    I have a HP Pavilion dv6563cl laptop (GA406UAR #ABA), who was supposed to have a GeForce 8400 M GS graphics card.

    However, after a failed repair, I realized that the graphic chipset on the motherboard is a G86-730-A2, which corresponds to a GeForce 8600 M, can someone confirm this for me?

    I suspect that there is some kind of (junk) replaced by the maintenance company.

    Thanks in advace.


    As mentioned above, this means that during the refurblishing process, they exchanged the mother card motherboard. You can check the part number to find out.

    Kind regards.

    PS Please note that the chipset is soldered to the motherboard.

  • Problem with the HP Pavilion dv 5000

    There is his sudden card problem. It is not any kind of sound!

    I tried to install / reinstall the sound driver, but it shows "Driver Installation Failed: could not find the MEDIA device for this driver."

    No idea what is the problem? Or what should I do?

    Somehow my Conexant Audio driver started working, I'm not exactly sure how. I write if someone gets the same problem, in order to highlight the debugging!

    I tried a lot of things, which includes:-Microsoft UAA HD Audio Driver setup, Conexant Audio Driver setup, both resulted in a failed state several times and today all of a sudden when I started my laptop it worked!

    Also some other likely problem I noticed was, my request of regedit does not work, its busy by virus or what ever say you in other words, so it is perhaps the problem as sources of the pilot were not allowed to change the registry and so there was a failure in the installation!

    Hello @RALFCOLLO ,

    Welcome to the HP forum!

    It is a wonderful place to learn and to find solutions that have helped other people.

    I understand that your laptop came with Windows 8.1 and your architect program is not compatible and you need to work.  I regret that it would not work in compatibility mode for you.

    You can certainly install XP.  If for any reason any, you need to use the warranty on the laptop, they should remember the laptop factory.

    That being said, the first thing to do is create your recovery disk if you don't have already done.

    Backup personal data, that you do not want to lose.

    You must then change the boot order in the bios.  Configuration of the system BIOS Boot order

    You should also disable secure boot. Secure Boot (Windows 8)

    Now you should be able to boot from your XP installation disk and complete the installation.

    Please be aware that XP is not an operating system on your laptop, HP will have not all recommended drivers.

    Download or update of software and drivers for HP computers

    Good luck!
