    You're very welcome.


    BTW, you may be interested in doing this in the future for recovery...


    You can make a system image of your new W10 installation using the free Macrium Reflect software.



    Get a portable hard drive large enough to save the image on.


    The software will also prompt you to make a rescue USB flash drive or DVD which you boot from to access the image stored on your portable hard drive.


    You can make a new system image anytime you want to keep it updated.


    Then if you ever need to reinstall W10, you can use the latest image you made to be as close to where you were.

  • 12/29/18--13:54: Re: Notebook doesn't turn on
  • Sorry, but any time a laptop simply refuses to turn on, that tend to indicate a serious hardware failure.

    Software failures invariably present with error messages of some kind on the screen, such as No Operating System or No Boot Device. In these cases, reinstalling the OS from media such as DVD or USB fixes the first; rebuilding the boot records using various utilities fixes the second.

    There are these interactive diagnostic routines you can run from another PC that will attempt to walk you through some steps to determine the source(s) of the problem:

    The problem is that we HERE, have no way of diagnosing or repairing hardware problems.

    If your PC is still under the original one-year HP warranty, or if you have purchased an extended warranty from HP and this is still valid, then you should contact HP Customer Support to see about having it repaired or replaced under warranty.

    If you live in the US or Canada, contact information is on this page:

    If you live elsewhere, contact information is on this page:

    NOTE: After you get through, stay on the line until you are finally able to talk to some one -- it can take a while!
    If you have trouble finding a phone number, then try: 1 (800) 474-6836

    If your PC is no longer under warranty, you will have to contact an HP Repair or Service Center to see if they can examine the PC to determine the cause(s) of the problems, if it can be repaired, and an estimate of the repair costs.

    If you live in the U.S., here is a link to the HP Service Repair Centers:

    If you live outside the U.S., here is a link to HP Service Centers, by Country/Region:

    Good Luck

  • You could consider purchasing your own HP Recovery Media from HP using this link:


    Or ... you could do the following:

    1) Since your wife and you have the same PC models, you will be using the same drivers; so, follow these directions on your wife's pc to make a backup copy of her drivers onto a USB stick:


    2) Use this link to download and create Win10 installation media on your wife's PC:


    3) Once you have that, boot your PC from it and install Win10 afresh.


    4) Insert the USB stick containing the drivers from your wife's PC and using that same thread, load the HP drivers from it for your PC.

  • 12/29/18--14:45: Bios Password
  • I updated my laptop through the support program and the computer now asks for a bios password?
    Previous owner has not put a password.

  • 12/29/18--14:45: Re: Bios Password
  • Welcome to the HP Support Community


    For that model you will need to contact HP in your region and they should be able to send you a customized SMC.bin file which you can use at boot to reset the password.


    Contact Support >>


    When talking to the HP rep ask them to escalate your service request.


    Just to note:


    Do not try removing the RTC/BIOS battery.  As it will not remove the password, but it may reset the clock and as SMC files are time coded, a large disparity between the system clock and the time encoded in the SMC may cause it to fail.

  • Is there any e-mail to the european region?


    I could press ESC and go into the menu and try to use other stuff, now I can't even go there. Neither can I make it boot from USB, as of my understanding I need to make it USB bootable?

  • I wish it was that easy..


    As I stated I tried windows recovery and was prompted as stated above..

    I tried to wipe the hard drive with DBAN but it still goes to the HP screen....

    I put cd as the first in the boot sequence also...

    I think I'll just spend the money for restore cd's.......

    Hi For sure it is a DV7-2173ca   (Canada.)  I will try some of those suggestions and get back to you.


    I did install a verson from the support disk that came with the PC.  THe Drivers all came from this website.  Some came from Drivereasy as some are outdated.  I am not sure if they are generic or not.  I will try your suggestions and get back to you.


    Regards Rick M
