Hello, After upgrading to the Windows 10 Creators Update (1703), the HP Accelerometer driver does not work properly. I have tried to reinstall the HP 3D. Hi All, After a Windows clean reinstall, I've downloaded of all software and driver from HP's website but, my accelerometer doesn't work. I tried to reinstall all.
I don't use my notebook as a mobile device at all. It's ALWAYS sitting on my desk, nice and steady. The problem is, 3D driveguard (accelerometer) is oversensitive.
It parks the HDD head even when there's ABSOLUTELY NO physical movement of the notebook- all I'm doing is playing some music using the internal speakers, and the vibrations generated by the laptop's own speakers is enough to raise the red flag- the HDD constantly parks and unparks. HP support is useless. They keep sending a tech over to my place every time I call them, and the tech tries to convince me this is normal- he can't fix it.
His solution- turn volume down. How To Update Printer Driver On Windows 10. This indeed works, low volume=less vibrations= no head parks. But the very obvious drawback of this solution is that I cannot hear things when volume is set to such low levels. I gave up on HP support, and my ghetto solution is to uninstall 3D driveguard, restart, uninstall 'HP mobile data protection sensor', restart, and the issue is resolved. This solution doesn't work in Windows 10.
Windows updates keep re-installing the 3D driveguard (software) and mobile data protection sensor (hardware driver), overriding my work. So here I am.
AN error cause by HP Accelerometer after Windows update appeared to be one of the unresolved issue. This problem straightly related to HP 3d Drive Guard Software (HP Protect Smart Hard Drive). You will also notice the start up time became longer than usual.
The most common stable drivers currently used to fix this problem is SP82228 and you can download it from HP ftp server here: TITLE: HP 3D DriveGuard Software VERSION: 188.8.131.52 REV: A PASS: 1 DESCRIPTION: This package provides the HP 3D Driveguard Software (HP ProtectSmart Hard Drive Protection) for supported notebook models that are running a supported operating system. The HP 3D Driveguard Software protects the hard drive by parking the heads if the notebook is accidentally dropped, or is abruptly impacted by another object.
