    Crysis 2 keeps crashing on me at the same point. I am using HP's drivers because of all of the problems that seem to happen from updating them. Is there a recommended version for this game or an updated version that doesn't complicate things?

    Nevermind, I've gotten it to work by using XP compatibility.

    It's likely your batch's envy keyboards have this issue; mine doesn't. I received a recently built Envy, and realised they have revised the build quality, which is better.

    Since about 1 month or so back I can't get any audio via HDMI to my HDTV. When playing video on the TV from the ENVY the picture's fine but the audio comes through the ENVY's speakers. Tried re-installing latest audio and graphics drivers but it didn't help. The screen is detected in CCC but not by the ENVY's W7 interface nor by the Beats audio interface. Has anyone experienced similar problems?

    mess with the audio settings in the idt audio/beats audio stuff.

    it's defaulting to the wrong speaker when hdmi is plugged in.


    you can't set it to default to hdmi unless the hdmi is connected. But once that's setup it'll go back to the basic speakers/first headphone jack when hdmi is unplugged (but should still default to hdmi when you plug the hdmi cable back in)

    When you right click the volume icon in the tray (bottom right of desktop) and click playback settings when hdmi is plugged in what does it say?

    I'm on vacation right now and thought I might start tweaking up my Envy 14.

    Is there any benefit of upgrading my BIOS from F.06 to the latest one?
    Does the recovery disc still work on the latest BIOS?

    Sorry, I haven't been really keeping up with NBR lately.

    F.06 is fine. Anything beyond F.06 the recovery discs break.

    The newer bioses have some fixes here and there (I think one may tweak the fan "turns on at so and so temperature" settings or something)

    but *shrugs*

    The later ones adds in an option to turn off the "ethernet device deep sleep mode"

    That's the thing that would give you trouble if you reinstalled windows from a clean install AND removed the ethernet cable sometime between formatting the hdd and finishing the reinstall of windows (it would shut off the ethernet device and you would have to get lucky to have it turn back on)

    We don't know.

    It's powerful to the point of if you have low impedimence (chrome doesn't like that spelling) it will get hiss/static due to it juts having power and not a way to really manage it. so..dunno what that tells you but yeah.
