    I have no definitive answer, just guessing.

    Would it be possible that while undocked it is using integrated graphics (to save power) and it has no driver or old version with bad performance.

    Hi guys,

    Would you by any chance know of the SRGB coverage of the 1920x1080 option on the Elitebook 840G2?

    I have searched high and low on the internet for the SRGB coverage for that combination, but cannot find any specific numbers?

    If any of you have the 1080p screen on the 840 G2 - What is your opinion? Do you like the screen? How are the colors..and the viewing angles?

    Thanks.

    Thanks alot for the feedback.

    Yep did finally get the Elitebook (someone had told be the Z14 would be better, but couldnt get that one where I live).
    The screen is lovely - I will say that. It seems to have more color reproduction than compared to my Dell U2312hm.

    HOWEVER
    The quality control on this product is terrible. It is no wonder HP is having problems.

    I have very significant backlight bleed on my screen on the top right hand corner - so much so that when watching movies it is noticeable.
    When I press certain keys on the keyboard, there is almost a cracking sound - as if I am hitting a wierdly angled plastic bit underneath.

    This is shameful for HP to have such a product classified as a business line. My Thinkpad X240 from work is absolutely flawless, and feels better built and I really wish I had imported a Thinkpad T450s from abroad (couldn't find it in my home country)

    I am not impressed with HP at all and will have to send my laptop back to get repaired.

    I would reinstall your graphics drivers. Uninstall whatever, if anything is installed. Intel, AMD, nVIDIA drivers. And reinstall the HP provided drivers. The laptop might just be powerful enough to power through video/flash with generic drivers without hardware support - but when undocked it goes into low power mode which slows everything down, causing stutter. Some people do not see the slight stutter a software decoder often does compared to a hardware assisted decoder.

    Sounds to me like the discrete graphics is enabled in docked mode, but when undocked the Intel Graphics takes over. Would bet something is up with that driver.

    Attempt also to set your PC to Balanced or High Performance mode by right clicking on the battery symbol in the taskbar and selecting "Power Options". Not that I think it will matter most likely as its not a solution but might improve on the stuttering slightly now allowing the CPU to throttle to low frequency.

    Also, does this problem happen with different media players? What media player are you using?

    Hi guys,
    I have a bit of a problem. I own a 840 G1 laptop, which is great, but I wanted to update a firmware on my HP lt4112 modem (which is a genuine HP part, but bought later) in HP 840 G1 Laptop, so I downloaded from the Drivers page proper file: http://h20565.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?sp4ts.oid=5405097&swItemId=ob_152395_1&swEnvOid=419... . I downloaded it and run the exe. After a few phases, when it came to "restoring user data" it stuck, and after a while an error popped up saying: "Error code: 21 - couldn't restore user data". From that point the modem is not visible in Device manager in WIndows. I removed the cover, remove the modem, run laptop and then instal it once more and restarted laptop, but the bios said that a new WWAN modem was installed, which is not on the list and therefore the system will switch it off.

    I tried to run previous upgrade: sp69476, but now the system does not even find the port for update ("Error code 10- Could not find the port"). Any suggestions?

    Contact HP, your laptop might still be under warranty

    840 G2: How do I adjust the camera resolution? It's stuck at 480, I think it should be able to use 720.

    Edit: Changed it with Youcam bloatware.
