HP SPECTRE 13X2 PROBLEM 8/21/2014
This exact verbiage will be posted on the following web sites: Hewlett Packard, Microsoft and Intel.
I purchased this model on Feb. 16, 2014 and to this date with Many attempts through online computer take over with HP tech’s, Microsoft store here in Hawaii and communication with Intel through their web site to address a problem that has been happening since I purchased this, DISPLAY DRIVER HAS STOPPED RESPONDING BUT HAS RECOVERED pop up window keeps appearing after waking unit from sleep by opening the lid.
Problems were Battery #2 in the docking station keyboard died and would not charge, I returned the unit to Microsoft in Honolulu.
I received this Specter13x2 back from Microsoft on 8/11/14 after they and HP had it for 3 weeks.
So Microsoft has the unit for 1.5 weeks and tells me that they have done extensive testing and virus checking and found nothing and had to send it to Ohio for repairs. Ohio has it for 4 days and sends it to HP in Tenn. To repair the battery. HP has it for 4 days and from the Account Manager that I was communicating with for HP, was informed that HP in Tenn. Replaced the battery and did “Extensive data testing and returned it to Microsoft. Microsoft has it for another 3 days and returns it to Microsoft Honolulu. They have it for a day updating ALL the drivers and software to the most current.
I receive the unit back and the battery is charging and shows the amount of charge and the pop up Display Driver Still continues to pop up, screen turns black, then flashes the color of my start screen, then goes to my desktop page, this all taking about 3 to 4 seconds. Then the pop up window indicates the driver has stopped working. Then the system operates fine.
I have contacted Intel through their chat and problem solving page, they have sent me links to update my HP Bios and for Intel’s display driver, that when I tried the link and it downloaded, I was prompted that the driver I was told by Intel would work on my system, prompted me that it was Not compatible with my system.
So, does anyone have a solution for this? Is this a problem with all the SPECTRE 13x2, or just the one’s with windows 8.1, or Intel’s drivers? I need help PLEASE.
