20 Most Recent HP Smart Buy 630 Intel Core i3-370M 2.40GNotebook - 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD Questions & Answers

When you connect something to an USB port for the first, don't hope to much. You have to be sure the computer has the correct software to recognise the hardware and can work with it. From Windows 7 and up, for most hardware that is certified with Microsoft, you can download the drivers from Microsoft. Lots of hardware is recognised when connected and will initiate a download from Microsoft. But not all hardware will do so and not all hardware is compatible with the new operating systems.
So to make sure your hardware is compatible, check the manual and find out, what you have to do so it will work on your computer.

lots of words and means just Dead PC. fans spin.
HP model number HP touchsmart. (no model stated at all)
its dead PC and screen is dead.
most PCs from HP have external display port.
of some kind, Display port or others, the manual covers this but your PC model was not told nor service tag model. told.
The PC is dead, and seems the power button is bad too.
here are some steps used on all laptops
1: remove the huge battery in the lap top, do not make excuses how hard it is to unplug , you bought it so do what must be done,
2: use the AC power pack only, (unpugged for 1hour first)
then plug it in, this pack
3: the PC must not self turn on. so push the power button now see it manually turns on.
4 the BIOS HP logo page shows and BIOS screens work like ESC, F10, F11,
5: if screen is still dead, use the external monitor port and
the Fn+F4 button as the manual tells you to do.

no PC stated at all not even class of PC, desk or laptop. and no parts are free.
the TOUCHSMART word does not tell what you own
that name used back to 2007, 13 years long.
IS THIS AND AIO all in one PC,?
does it have a power pack that in in the line cord
is it the right pack for the AIO>?
AIO PCs only have a few parts inside that are standard, RAM and HDD, all else is HP custom, making them as hard to repair as laptops, lacking those parts custom.
first learn to identify a PC first then tinker.
see examples below.

the P6122F is a desktop, did you forget the P?
and is now so old HP has no support at all.
this pC was ,made in 2009 and no support now for it.
the RTC coin cell battery is now dead and the BIOS can not boot the
HDD like that, we replace 10 year old batteries, of any kind.
then get the BIOS screens working first,. no monitor stated so
it must be plugged in to the matching jack on the rear, VGA to VTA

i have working and fully max upgraded xw4600 , sister to yours.
MBR is limited to 2GB,(approx)
the OS must be 64bit, to go GPT,

are you saying to boot from this drive, full system not told
I run SSD as boot drive, 128GB. then drive 2 non boot can be any thing I want in w10 64bit, nobody uses w7, now, it dies, Q1, 2020.

UEFI safe boot needs, OS RELOADED, and to GPT.
and 64bit OS, it is NOT a BIOS issue. but do upgrade BIOS,
UEFI does not own GPT, you can run legacy with GPT, microsoft.com has full pages telling you how to do that.

I have w10 64bit, v1903 on mine. now. runs like champ.
once booted the OS runs the HDD not BIOS, a fact.
when you fresh load w10 64 from ISO the OS installer will set that 3TB as GPT , regardless of BIOS.
try it see.
but SSD drive there booting is always best. even on all my servers.HP and DELL.
you can set up w10 to put all data on drive, E: 3TB
or have 2 partitions there, programfiles and DATA.
then OS owns the SSD, alone.

hope that helps some.

AIO PCs seem to love to die,
the PC
so PC is silent, means lost of power, check AC cable, make sure to use wall jack AC not a power strip.
AIO are not easy to fix, most parts in side are non standard
so that makes them a pain.
why not get shop to fix it.?
did you hold the power button in for 5 full seconds as page 2 in your service manual directs.?
repeat that 2 times, 1st to end buggy sleep drivers, 2nd to hard power it on,
if that fails the , PSU bad top cause. (silent PC)

HP Computers &... | Answered on Nov 28, 2019

you need to ask HP, that, it's laptop right?
only they can undo that, (by design)
hp 15 is not the full model name:
example #1, the service tag is read first, then told what it is.
HP 15-bs031wm then go here and ask HP, what to do. notebooks

HP Pavilion Slimline s5000 (s5100z)
fans spin, ok,
DVD tray enjects.
does this PC have the optional
the first 5000 was made in year 2003
then laters for VISTA.
id have to see your service tag info to wax smarter.
hp forum can help try that? hp.com

I guess the VGA port is dead, ?
most old PC had 2 ports, 1 on the card, one on the main chassis rear . if the card GPU vga is present only it works.
if you remove the GPU the main VGA port is live.

I cant see rear of your PC and seeing MATTERS.

the common failures are:
RTC coin cell dead.
HDD bad, (most are this old)
and PSU bad.
in that order.

You don't have the codecs needed to watch the movie.
Download some codec pack, or just use VLC.
