What the hell is an environment to help HP UEFi

OK, HP support assistant told me that a new important upgrade was available for my laptop, UEFI support environment 4.2.5.0Ap1.  So maybe as a sheep I downloaded.  It creates a new partition on my hard drive (TOOLS HP) and installed.  Nothing serious took place, but what the hell did I download?  I have, of course, wrongly, that it was an update of an existing product.

Because now I'm assuming that is I don't know what it is that I should not play with it.

Thank you.

Hello

What this gives you is a user-friendly user interface more executing diagnostcs.  If you type following the esc key you start Notepad, you will be able to select this diagnostic menu (f2 key).

For example, if you want to run a test on the drive hard or memory, this use is in the meu to bios (f10) where you browse and run the tests using the arrow keys and touch.  Menu diagnosis uefi will allow you to choose a variety of tests using the Mouse/touchpad in the same way that you access Windows.

The new partition (HP_TOOLS) contains the files needed to support this interface.

Another point to note is that this provides also a safer way to update the bios if you need to-instead of the bios flash running in Windows, in the environment of uefi, the flash occurs after the machine is restarted - that is to say before Windows loads.  It is usually safer that software which may interfere with a flash of the bios (software security etc.) is not running.

Personally, I would only update the bios if it solves a problem you have or adds features that you need.

Kind regards

  • My account has been blocked for at least 3 weeks now. What the hell is happening?

    My account has been blocked for at least 3 weeks now. What the hell is happening? After reading all of these posts, it seems that MSN is simply stealing peoples email accounts, and we will never get our private information called back. What is the reason behind this? And why you are taking personal information from people who trusted in MSN for the use of electronic mail? Your customer service is the worse since you offer no support "on-line".

    It is quite the leap in logic.

    You have created a free account and ikely changed the password once or twice over the years you and the password was probably less than 15 characters and did not contain 3 of the four following things: uppercase, lowercase, symbols and numbers.  You can, or maybe not configuration options available for recovery of password as well.

    You think Microsoft is steaing accounts people - for what purpose.  They could probably allow you more easily just keep the accounts and steal your information (which you would hold current through new emails and others) which means it would be more useful for them just let you continue using the free account for stuff probably shouldn't you use a free account for that to take the entire account access on your part and lose this constant influx of new data on * you *.  If you have a logical argument for your accusation, "MSN flies simply email accounts of peoples", I'd love to hear it.

    Just in case where it happens, I could not care mail/Hotmail/Windows Live email, MSN etc.  It would not change the thoughts (see above), Yahoo Mail or another free service accused you of ' steaing your e-mail account "."  It is a free account and if you chose to use as your primary means of communication (knowing you probably receive your provider of Internet services and possibly your work email and could probably get an account to 'pay' for a little money * per year * that woud provide you with a way to recover your account, which could actually be traced back to you.)  As a free account, once someone hacks into what they can change the methods to reset the password so he sends their alternate accounts he their secret answers, it even look like their profile - delete all emails that could lead to a person thinking that it was not their account.  Yes - maybe (* maybe *) someone might come back in a little history (if such a thing exists) and to see that the answers have been changed and revisit the old emails – but it also means that Microsoft maintains backups and others on the free email service they follow hundreds of thousands (millions?) of people.  ;-)

    Anyway - as it was more of a rant (on our two parts, it seems to me) that a real application: there are a few things that I can offer you.

    (1) it is a peer-to-peer forum.  This means that those who respond here are likely than users of the same products that you happen to use and volunteer their time to help others because, just maybe, they have a little more "snap" when it comes to some of what the user lambda or maybe just because they like to help others.

    (2) first, not knowing what you have and that you have not tried, I suggest you read this article and make sure that you have gone through the normal steps to try to recover your lost free email account...
    http://www.itechwhiz.com/2011/04/account-recovery-reset-Windows-Live.html

    (3) in addition, I'm sure someone willpost back on the fact that * this * is not the right place to post on these issues.  This has nothing to do with Windows XP or repair the system and recovery.  You might be running Linux and are still using MSN mail. ;-)  Then...

    I hope you can get the necessary assistance.  I am obliged to tell you that if you are recovering your account - any email service set you on (and even if you pay for it) you should change your password regularly (usually once a year favorite) and make sure that it is a great password (I suggest 15 + characters, and containing 3 4 things I already mentioned) and that configure you each recovery password given to you by option the said account.  Also, if it's something important and not just an email to "undesirable" for the most part - consider paying somehting for this type of e-mail address.  Have a way of tracing the account to you (money trail) is a sure way to recover an account.

  • CS6 was converted from the upgrade to a trial version, I bought.  What the hell is happening.

    I upgraded from CS5 to CS6 for my IMac.  I downloaded CS6 and my serial number and it worked fine for a few weeks.  Everything suddenly when I went in to use it said it was a trial version.  I had to register to use my CS6, I signed it and it worked but only as a Trial Version of CS6 extended. I don't want Extended CS6.  I deleted the demo version of CS6 extended my hard drive and once more downloaded my upgrade of the CS6 and put in my serial number and it worked fine for a few weeks. Today, once more, he tells me it is a trial version and does not load unless I register the trial version. What the hell is happening? It's crazy.  I just want to use CS6, for which I paid. Help!

  • What the hell are all my Add-ons?

    The last update deleted all my Add-ons. What am I supposed to do, list all of the gd modules again? And where is the bloody tool and options bar? Is there a way I can just get above the url again? It is no longer a preview screen that explains the last update and change to go back to the easy to use? Do you want that I use Chrome in the future? Excuse me, but I'm so sick of changes is ridiculous to make my life more complicated. I spend enough time in front of a computer as it is.

  • BlackBerry Smartphones BlackBerry switching - what the hell is happening?

    So, here's the deal, I have recently updated my personal curve to a "BOLD". I gave my wife the curve and took its Pearl like my work Berry. Here's the question - our lists of contacts on my "BOLD" and its curve seem to interbreed. If I delete a contact from his curve, it removes also on my "BOLD". Anyone got any ideas? My wife is a little upset that she must go through all my work and personal contacts to join his stuff. Any help would be appreciated. To make the passage, I saved two phones with Desktop Manager, responsible for its backup to the curve and my staff for the "BOLD" and the backup job on the Pearl. Help!

  • What the hell is going on with Lightroom CC?

    My LR CC 2015 is very weird.  It is almost unusable. Help, please!

    John, there's a lot of hanging and crashing bugs in the latest Lightroom (2015.2.1/6.2.1). This is especially true on OS X. not everyone feels, but if you do, the program becomes unusable. The only solution is to go back to 2015.1.1 and do not allow cc to be updated. See here: http://www.lightroomqueen.com/how-do-i-roll-back-to-lightroom-2015-1-1-or-lightroom-6-1-1/ probably an update is being prepared which should resolve many of these issues.

    I think it's self-explanatory.

    This will be caused by a problem with an add-on. An add-on that has caused this is the complement of FoxTab, if you have this a try disabling or uninstalling it.
