A:AnswerYes, you can upgrade the solid state drive. Please note that this is a different type of solid state drive. Here is the info on the one that is on the laptop: L61958-001 (part number) SSD 128GB 2280 M2 SATA3 TLC. You would need to look for a 2280 M2 SATA3 TLC solid state drive.
A:Answerhi!!! this happened to me as well today, completely shut off your computer by holding down the power button. Let it sit for awhile, reboot and you’ll be able to go through the process and the white screen won’t show up.
A:AnswerAt HP Team.
Your answer first says "no" (only data with USB C) but in the next statement you say "yes".
So which one is it?!
(Of course one woud need to buy an adapter. But not all USB C ports allow support HDMI protocol.
And the Best Buy specs never say which laptops do, and which don't.
This particular model was a Burst SKU, therefore, it was only available for a short period of time... this is a tactic used by almost every retailer to drive more traffic, which I think they definitely did. The sale was the perfect time before back to school and by far was a better deal than anything else they've had all season. You might be able to find one open-box (aka pulled out of the box and put back in, may show gentle use). I posted a thorough review on the product page.
A:AnswerBattery life is very much impacted by how you are using your HP 14. If you are typing a document at night with the screen at a very low brightness level and both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are turned OFF, you could get six hours to eight hours per charge. At the other extreme, if you are streaming Netflix movies over Wi-Fi with Bluetooth driving your Bluetooth speakers and have you have screen brightness set at the highest level, you will get two or three hours per charge.
Another factor is major software updates. With new and newish computers, Microsoft is often downloading massive software updates in the background while you are doing other things. At some point, Windows begins installing the updates, and that process is very battery intensive (and can GREATLY slow down your computer while you are web browsing with 10 or 12 tabs open). So, a person might be getting only two or three hours per charge for the first two or three weeks they use their new laptop, and then battery life suddenly improves to four or five hours after the major updating is complete.
A:AnswerIt comes in S mode, but it takes about 5 minutes, if you're slow, to take it out of S mode, including looking up the answer. Google something like "take Windows out of S mode" to get the instructions.
A:AnswerIf you choose to get out of S Mode, it would actually switch to the full Windows 10 Home operating system. In Windows 10 S Mode, you can only download apps from the Microsoft store or use Microsoft Edge browser. Windows 10 Home allows you to download whatever you want to the computer that fits your needs, i.e. Chrome or Firefox browsers. Here is how to get out of S Mode: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4456067/windows-10-switch-out-of-s-mode
