@Alan_S First, congrats an that EliteBook. 😉 I just received one as well and I'm quite amazed, didn't expect much considering it's from HP and all. It did keep me on my toes with all kinds of weird behavior, though until I uninstalled HP SureClick. That app sends all kinds of processes and browser tabs into Micro VMs, which can cause funny things. In my cause, Windows wouldn't even update anymore and I kept digging for reasons hours on end (Now this may not be related to this thread's problem, but I just thought I throw it in for good measure).
@marko Thanks for the heads up on the debug
