    uninstall Broadcom application
    reboot
    uninstall all Bluetooth stuff in device manager
    install the old version of Broadcom 20702
    once your Bluetooth is installed correctly the wifi buttons starts working correctly again

    Just an update on this old beast...
    Still running full force years later, but none of the windows updates were instaling past 33% or 42%
    the solution:
    Display Driver uinstaller
    Remove AMD and Intel , every last trace, multiple time, disconnecting from internet so they dont get downloaded again
    installing newest windows update via ISO image 1803 at the time
    all went through perfectly
    now you have aproblem as soon as windows installs AMD drivers, computer freezes,
    log in to safemode, device manager, disable AMD device , reboot
    then install the HP AMD drivers from 2012 , listed on the 1st page here
    then update intel drivers
    restart and you can now install the latest AMD autodownload drivers 18.5.1 at the moment ,
    then run the brightness adjustment registery fix on the first page and restart.

    you now have the latest windows and latest AMD and intel drivers all working fine.

    thanks a ton for the inputs doctorman. I have a 32XX Envy 15 which is still running great and was stuck on windows 10 ver 1607 forever. I was also fed up with endless install failures at 33% or 42% and could never find what error was causing this.
    Followed your steps and was finally successful with the update. :)
    However, after the driver uninstalls and the update went through my laptop did'nt freeze. Don't know why. I still went ahead with the relevant AMD update from page 1 i.e. sp 56896 and the intel driver update. My device manger shows me 2 display adapters i.e. Intel HD4000 and the Microsoft Basic Display Adapter. No sign of the AMD. Under other devices, the manager shows me unknown device with no drivers (is this the graphics card ?). Was hoping the catalyst 18.5.1 would be the magic fix, but the install process hangs my laptop.
    Would be grateful for a fix or any ideas.

    EDIT : finally got it working after more than half a day. lol. following the exact sequence detailed is vital. also i had downloaded the initial windows 7 driver cos that what my laptop came with but the windows 8 drivers is what worked for me. Thanks all. lol. Btw brightness fix is not working.

    RE-EDIT: for windows 10, brightness fix on page 1 does'nt work. crackjack's easy solution on page 39 worked for me.
    Thank you guys for taking the time out. My system is almost back to how it was when it was new. No thanks to windows 10.

    Since everything is going so well. Maybe I can hope for some more. lol.
    I run an external display in portait mode, which works fine with my other laptop (dell 13) but with the envy the option for orientation is grayed out and stuck in landscape mode. Anyone have any ideas ?
