I installed an M.2 SSD in the open slot to go with my mechanical hard drive that came with it. It was an SSD that was used a the boot drive of a desktop and I was not able to format it before installation. When the new drive is installed the laptop will not power on.

The "G" key of my keyboard feels different than any other keys, it's harder to press down, more resistance and feel like there's something stuck underneath or maybe problem with the membrane. Are the keys of the hp omen 2017 laptop removable?

Answer:"G" key feels different on HP omen 2017

Removal ain't the problem it's getting them back on. Best advice: don't.

due to current omen 15 displays being abysmal (4k is pentile; 1080p is the worst display ive ever seen - this topic is about the 1080p one), i want to replace it with a better one. i have just been to a store where i compared the displays of the omen 15/pavillion 15 and other notebooks, and omen 15's 1080p display is not even worth being labeled as ips how bad it is. maximum brightness is maybe enough for night usage in complete darkness, but thats it. color-wise it is even worse than all the reviews said that smashed the omen 15s for their catastrophic displays; less than 50% adobe rgb gamut is enough to know what im talking about. compared the exact same picture with a big red box on the omen 15/pavillion 15 and other notebooks that were on display there, and the red box was neither red nor orange nor brown, but some unsaturated grey with a bit of an orange tint, whereas on other notebooks (NB: omen 17 was one of these; surprisingly it was even one of the best ones with a 1080p display) it was a clear saturated deep red. now long story short, i have to replace this display immediately.ive done that lots of times with hp business notebooks earlier when they had tn panels, but during the last years i privately mainly used an envy 17 3d which has an amazing 120hz tn panel that blows even most current ips panels away in terms of brightness and colors. now remembering my multiple attempts to replace displ...

Hello, I have been hearing this weird, creaky, clicking sound from the right hand side of my laptop (upper right apparently) since I bought it two weeks ago. I'm not entirley sure if it is abnormal, since the sound is not very loud and not noticeable when there is outside noise. But when I'm in a quiet room, the sound is really annoying. It sounds a bit like the sound of HDD when it is reading or writing something, but I'm pretty sure it is not the case  since task manager shows there is no activities in my HDD and I have barely used my HDD so far. The sound is not consistent and is not in a fixed rhythm. So it's 'di..dididi...didii... di.. didididid..', in a very high pitch. I'm also suspecting it is the fan, but it just doesn't really sound like fan noise, which I can actually hear. Another thing I notice is that when I plug out the power supply the sound would stop for about 10 seconds and then resume. Not sure if this is a clue. Thanks for your help. PS: Don't know if it's a helpful description, but the noise sounds a bit like the modem sound, of course much lower, but when I put my face close to the keyboard to hear it, it really sounds like it.

The other website are opened normally, without issues. I noticed that just as the computer starts with the processes of BD and SpyShelter, and for the first 10/15 minutes, I didn't have problems, but passed this amount of time, here are the problems. I get specifically this two type of error: "Unable to load the page" and "Unable to reach the page". The problems happen on all the browsers installed on the PC. My PC has Windows 10 64-bit, I am on the latest build of AU (14393.479). In addition to this, sometimes my browser for open a webpage, it requires a lot of time, and I have to reboot the PC to get Internet working again. At this point, I don?t understand what is the cause to these problem. Can you help me?

Hi everyone, i have quite a few questions so i'll post separate threads rather than pollute one thread. I'm wanting to get something a lot better than windows defender. Comcast is my ISP so i can get NIS for free. As most of you are aware of Norton hasn't been doing a great job these days. There has been multiple vulnerabilities in its products that actually decreases the security of windows. Still NIS still does a pretty good job of scoring pretty well in the various test in terms of protection. I was thinking on going with either bitdefender or KIS but of course i would have to pay for those. If you were me would opt for NIS because its still pretty dang good and worlds better than bit defender or would you opt for one of the better products like KIS or bitdefender?

Good evening everyone. Thanks for your access to this thread. I hope you to read and answer for this question.

I want to ask everyone that which software should I use for keeping security of my PC.

Now I am using Bitdefender Total Security 2017 as main anti-malware soft on my main desktop PC.
And also I was using F-secure SAFE as anti-malware soft on my PC until last week.

Yesterday, I heard that new Avast Antivirus 2017 was released, and new Avast Free is including behaviour scanning system.

I am having trouble deciding which software should I use as anti-malware soft.
Please tell me about your recommend.

I think that...

?Protection features
Better : Bitdefender 2017 > F-secure SAFE > Avast Free 2017

?Performance and speed
Lighter : Avast Free 2017 > F-secure SAFE > Bitdefender 2017

?the risk of false positive trouble
Bigger risk : F-secure SAFE > Avast Free 2017 > Bitdefender 2017

?SSL (HTTPS) Scanning is enable without fake SSL certificate to browser
Unnecessary fake certificate : Avast Free, F-secure
Need fake certificate : Bitdefender Total

F-secure SAFE is the very nice solution as protection from malwares and keeping speedy PC. But it is having big risk of false positive ratings; especially the website blocking is not good with many many false positive ratings. And, sometimes slow down my PC.

Bitdefender Total Security 2017 is the best solution as protection from malwares. This software is providing users very nice anti-malware solu... Read more

Answer:Avast Free 2017 vs F-secure SAFE vs Bitdefender Total Security 2017

Quick question, why Bitdefender Total Protection? Do you need ALL those additional features, or looking for an Antivirus only, because there are Bitdefender Antivirus Plus and Free versions.

What about other protection software like Emsisoft Anti-Malware/Internet Security or ESET Nod32 Antivirus/Internet Security?

Hello, Guys!
I'm new on this forum but I Really Really like this good Forum
So I had Emsisoft for couple of months now
But Recently I've switched over to Avast Premier Beacuse I've never used Avast before So I wanted to try It out
But now I'm without any AV As I do not know what to Install Avast or Emsisoft!
I have licences for both So thats not the problem
Thanks In Advance And btw This forum really nice.
 

Answer:Avast Premier 2017 Vs Emsisoft Internet Security 2017

Both have excellent protection functions, but certainly they are two different security solutions.
I think the choice of one or the other one is really subjective, I've used Emsisoft for many years and it is my first choice

A couple of years ago I moved myself and some of the fam from Apple Everything to Windows 10. Yesterday however, I bought an new 2017 iPad. I really love the Surface devices, so why?
LEAVING THE PLATFORM BECAUSE OF WINDOWS MOBILE
First, because Microsoft are no longer supporting the phones that are in our house, we are being forced from that platform. So rather than living and breathing completely and happily inside the Microsoft ecosystem, I am now forced to diversify and go elsewhere. This really is a big deal, and changes my thinking from the unthinkable (leaving the MS ecosystem) to the possible (shifting back towards Apple). That being the case, why should I then buy a Microsoft Surface tablet (I was planning to buying a new Surface Pro M3) when I an now FORCED to be open to Apple and Android?
EASE OF MOVING PLATFORMS
Second, Microsoft have made my leap back to Apple so easy, because they have done what Apple and Google have refused to do, which is to make their software available on the others' platforms. Thus the transition to iPad is easy. For example, Word and PowerPoint are effectively free (via my 365 account that I will not be renewing at full cost next time; I will use the academic version which costs me almost nothing). Outlook on iPad is a great app (better than on PC platform). Lots of other apps that Microsoft that I use are also really nice on iPad (e.g. Wunderlist) and made the transition really simple and clean.
FACEBOOK
Third, the Facebook app on iPad is ... Read more

Answer:I did the unthinkable and chose a 2017 iPad over a 2017 Surface Pro M3

Microsoft are no longer supporting the phones that are in our house, we are being forced from that platform
Can't make sense of that. Presumably you have really old windows phones that no longer get updates?
And what does that have to do with what tablet you use? Windows has timeline, cloud clipboard and a whole host of platform agnostic features coming this fall, so Windows will play nice with android or ios (better than those OSes play with any other).
You don't even need your tablet, desktop and phone to be the same platform. You just need the same services, which for MSFT, exist on every platform.

Good evening everyone! Thank you for your access to here and reading my post.
Tonight, I want to ask you that how much the Avast Free Antivirus reaches some solid anti-malware software, which are the paid version.

Now I am using F-secure SAFE as Trial license on desktop PC, which is one of the mine.
It seems to nice for protect PC and F-secure SAFE is light despite it is one of the very strong scanning system as consumers.

But now, I am worrying about false blocking by browsing protection of F-secure SAFE.
In usually, f-secure is not making something to bad situation for me, I am feeling it.
But the Browsing protection feature of F-secure SAFE blocks websites too many times.
The most of sites,which were blocked by F-secure are obviously safe. Of cause, they are judged safe sites by other major antimalware soft (e.g. Avast, Bitdefender Total Security).

So I want to compare them; Avast Free Antivirus 2017 and F-secure SAFE 2017(or Internet Security 2017).
I want to ask you that which is the more strong software under the below situation...

1.
OS is Windows10 Home and updated with latest security patch.
2.
Main browser is the latest of Mozilla Firefox with ublock origin.
3.
If I use Avast Free 2017, I will configure some setting (e.g. File Shield, Mail Shield, Web Shield, and Behavior Shield) to aggressive security level. For example, I will configure by referring to this page avast! Optimal Protection settings by RejZoR​

Previously we wrote a long post about Best Laptops for Hackers, which included a run-down on the best laptops for programming and penetration testing (pen-testing). This article turned out to be very popular even though it wasn't exactly intended to be that, now we are proud to finally publish the long-requested article of 'Best Laptops for Video Game System Emulation'.

The idea of this post is to give an accurate summary of which laptops are suited for, or adept at emulating various consoles and their games, and which ones also can easily perform these duties, at the lowest possible cost.

Now obviously, the better hardware you have the better your system will be at emulating other hardware/software. That doesn't necessarily mean a more expensive laptop. Where the demands of hacking and pen-testing demand vital and significant internal storage, the prerequisites for game emulation are generally just a good graphics processor, and good RAM/CPU.

Your laptop should also be in good working order and not muddled with high-risk pirated downloads and large bits of video. To emulate efficiently, you should also have as little processes and programs running in order for the emulator to run smoothly.

My new Omen will not boot from any of my USB2 flash drives.  I disabled Secure boot, enabled Legacy boot, and moved boot-from-USB to first place for UEFI and non-UEFI boot modes. It does, however,  boot from my only USB3 flash drive (a SanDisk UltraFit 64). It will also read and write USB2 flash drives, after Windows 10 boots.  Linux Mint 17, not so much.

This worked for the 3 different USB2 thumb drives. YES!!!  (Is this some sort of security feature?) And if that was not good enough news already, I burned the latest Linux Mint version to my oldest, slowest USB2 thumb drive and not only did it boot fine, and recognize other USB2 thumb drives when plugged in, sound and video work properly.  (Such was not the case with Linux Mint 17 Debian Edition.) I'm going to LOVE this laptop ... !~}>

Answer:Omen 17

Well you do not have a USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 port so your only option is a USB 3.0 port replicator. HP does not really make a traditional "snap down" dock for consumer models any more, incuding the Omen so you are forced to use a "port replicator" A true dock powers the laptop and can be used with a simple single snap-down. In this case you still have to conect the AC adapter and then the USB 3.0 port replicator.  http://www8.hp.com/us/en/products/oas/product-detail.html?oid=5278439 If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

Question: HP Omen Fan Issues

About a week ago I got an update to Windows 10 and some of the HP utilities, so I updated everything and now the fans act really strange. They go to their max speed and then slow way down and then go all the way back up again, this repeats several times for however long I use the laptop. I've checked for running processes and nothing looks out of the ordinary. I've tried messing with the fan speed through the Omen control, but that doesn't seem to be able to lower the fan speed.

Hi, I'm not sure whether I should ask this questions in this section, but as there is no customer chat I thought this would be most suitable... I'm looking to buy the HP OMEN 15-ax003na, the specifications are what I'm looking for (Light/Medium Gaming, good for 3D Software and general use), however the Laptop is advertised as 4K Resolution (3840 x 2160). Looking at the Specs, this version is only 1080p (1920 x 1080). Unfortunately, there is no option to customise your specs, nor is there a predetertermined build with 4K resolution on the UK Store. Thus I'm curious as to why it's advertised in the UK Store as a 4K laptop when there is no option? If there is a way to get this and I've skipped passed this option - I am sorry. Please could I be advised on where/how I can do this, I would be most pleased! King Regards, Michael here is the link to the UK Store

I just bought an HP OMEM 256GB/8Gig Model, with NVidea 860 card, the fan noise level is way above the normal acceptable level, i'm not even using the NVidea card, only the basic graphic card but still very noticable fan noise.  I did go into BiOS as suggested and turned off "Fan is always on".   I'm not pressing FN+F to power on the FAN, and what's strange in my case is that when i put the laptop into sleep and open again the fan really noise for 5 second, like it is doing something intensive, then the FAN noise reduces but still noticable on the left hand side. I have a Samsung Notebook 6 years old, side by side, and i can't hear any noise, while this new high spec Omen has this annoying fan noise.   Overall the PC looks nice, but if I can't fix the noise level i might have to return it.  I really want to make this work, so any support or suggestion is appreciated.  Thank you.

Answer:HP OMEN - Noisy FAN

Hi there @PistisanWelcome to the HP Support Forums! It is a great place to find the help you need, both from other users, HP experts and other support personnel. I understand that you are having noisier than expected performance mostly coming from the cooling fan. I am happy to assist with this. As it is a brand new machine, you could call our technical support at 800-474-6836. If you live outside the US/Canada Region, please click the link below to get the support number for your region.http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/ww-phone-assist.html Or if you prefer to work from the forums, then I would start with checking your system for any debris. It is quite possible that some of the packing material may have fallen into the fan assembly, and is the cause of the noise.Cleaning your Notebook PCLet me know if this helps at all.

Hi ! I've just bought a HP Omen laptop and it works great only problem I have is I need to use Multi-streaming and I dont understand how. I opened B&O Audio Control, enabled Multi Streaming but then what ? I can't find any panel that would allow me to configure it. I just want to play a youtube video on the laptop's speakers and the rest in my headphones. Would you mind making a step-by-step tutorial cause when I googled it I found out any people asked the question but neither you nor B&O gave any answer. When looking for "HP Multi Streaming configuration" only answers are from "Intel" and I'm not sure you like this kind of advertising Thanks for taking the time to read this.Hope you'll give me an answer as soon as possible !

Question: Omen SSD Upgrade

I recently got one of the new HP Omen laptops, Omen 15-ax000ne. This model comes with a 128GB SSD and a 1TB HDD. I'm looking to replace my SSD with a larger one. I did some research about the new Omen laptops and i found out this: some models have a 128GB SSD and it's an m2 SATA SSD, while other models have a 256/512GB SSD and it's an NVMe SSD.I checked my laptop, and it is indeed a SATA m2 SSD. Does this mean that only a SATA SSD would work in my laptop? Or could an NVMe SSD also work in the same m2 slot?

The fans run at near full speed when the laptop is turned on, before I even have a chance to open anything strenuous. It seems to be mainly the left fan that is on. The laptop doesn't feel warm, but I have tried turning the fans to maximum and back again to see if that helped, which it didn't. The fans have been recently cleaned because of the noise, but next to nothing needed cleaning when I got to them. The option to have fans always running in the BIOS is disabled.

I have had this problem since I bought this beautiful laptop. No matter what I'm doing; reading, writing, browsing.... the fans are always running at max. The noise is so loud, I can't sit in class or a library without sounding like a hurricane. I've tried so many things:-Notebook FanControl-SpeedFan-RW-Everything (didn't really know how to use this)-Going into BIOS and turning "Fans always on" Off-HP Omen Control-literally nothing happensNone of them worked  When using Notebook FanControl, the HP OMEN 15 config told me my fans were running at 129%. Pretty weird.  I checked my CPU temperatures, usually 30°C which isn't surprising given that these fans are always maxing out. I haven't opened my laptop because I'm not sure I need to. I've barely had this OMEN for six months, I doubt there is much lint or dust in the vents and fans. If it's a problem with anything internal, I would rather just give it to a technician, as a last resort though, because this laptop works perfectly fine otherwise. From reading other forums or threads about this problem I honestly can't tell if it's normal or there simply isn't a solution out there for me. If you guys have any suggestions, it would be greatly appreciated.  Lucas

Greetings all, I?m considering purchasing an omen x desktop for my game development, but most of my software uses windows 8 and has some drawbacks when using windows 10.  I was wondering if windows 8 can be run on the omen x; can?t seem to find it anywhere on the web.also, would it be a good computer for game development? I know it works brilliantly for running games.probably sound pretty nooby, but would appreciate the help.thanks.

Answer:omen desktop x

The Munich motherboard has two slots for M.2 and both are in use in your current configuration. Use the following Motherboard viewer to see the location of ports and components on the motherboard.https://h20574.www2.hp.com/results.htm?SID=12079701&MEID=0684F266-F14D-4C56-8002-D3F5090DDD71 You will need the Service procedures to see how to access everything in your Omen X desktop PC. Use the following link.https://h20574.www2.hp.com/results.htm?SID=12079701&MEID=C6BD7AFE-7070-4778-9A6A-25F6C2B77C4C The hardware reference guide gives a great explanation of most other options for your Omen X Desktop.http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c05337523 It does not describe the use of a PCIe M.2 SSD adapter. You can use it in a spare PCIe  x16 slot to add an M.2 SSD to your system. See the following link at NewEgg.com. I have one. They work well.https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA7HN50H6157&cm_re=m.2_pcie_adapter-_-2BM-0011-00... Your options for best choice on the SSD are 256 GB PCIe-3x4 NVMe, which is the fastest on the planet at the moment or 256 GB NVMe. The Samsung M.2 SSD products are my own preference. See the following link at NewEgg.com.https://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&DEPA=0&Order=BESTMATCH&Description=m.2+nv...  I have not seen any RAID options in the BIOS simulator.

Hi there! I own the Omen X empty chassis and I'm in the process of building the system. There is a cable coming from the back of the hard drive enclosure. By putting the part number through the part store, it's described as "Cable - U.2 SSD, Typhon". Does anyone know what this cable is for and which bay on the Omen X it connects to. I've poured through the manuals but found no mention of it.

Answer:Omen X mystery cable

@Shunchan, welcome to the forum. Here is a guide that will hopefully explain what the cable does.  I have to admit it was new terminology for me, also. Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

Hi, problems with 2 Omen desktop 870-189na computers I purchased less than a month ago, they are both experiencing the same sort of issues where the systems will just freeze for no reason, internet will not be available and unresponsive and unable to restart or shutdown, so having to pull power supply on back. there seems to be no pattern of any particular program, sometimes it will do it from starting up. Any help would be much appreciated. 

Answer:New Omen desktop 870-189na

>  I purchased less than a month ago. Any computer that new should not have any problems.Exercise the "warranty" that came with the computer, i.e., telephone HP and get free support. Also, as an "experiment", purchase an inexpensive UPS ("Uninterruptible Power Supply") and connect it between the electrical wall-outlet and your computer, to provide "smoothed" power to your computer.  If your local power-company is "problematic", then your computer could be showing the symptoms you've listed.

Hi, I've recently bought an HP Omen gaming laptop, and the PC was working fine. However, when I downloaded a file, it came packed with adware and malware, which really messed up the computer. So I did a recovery to the previous day, which seemed to have solved the issue. But, whenever I try to delete, access or move a file from the secondary hard drive, the PC freezes. The taskbar stops working, the start menu and the folders stop being accessible. But I can still open apps from the desktop. I've tried formatting and the problem still persists after a clean windows install. The CHKDSK says everything is okay: click here :\

Hi everyone.

I suffer from serious migraines and someone told me that the monitor I sit in front of contributes to those migraines.

I wanted to ask the community if anyone has dealt with this issue and what are your opinions about these two monitors? The ASUS has the Eye Care to help with eye straining and is flicker free.

Someone told me to look into the HP Omen since it has a higher refresh rate 75mhz whatever that means but he said that it's a slight notch faster than the ASUS and cheaper by 100-50 dollars depending on where you are buying it from.

Really appreciate anyone and everyone's 2cents in this.

Thank You.
