comment HP Envy Touch Smart 15 heat on bottom screen
This is likely a hardware / vendor issue, and not about Ubuntu. See: h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Other-Notebook-PC-Questions/… OR tomsguide.com/answers/id-2121606/envy-heating-problem.html

comment How to recover data from a thrice formatted HDD?
By default the format command replaces the disk's indexing, but does NOT erase (write zeros) the content. So doing this three times may be no worse than just once. However, if you (or younger brother) chose the non-quick format (eg. overwrite / erase all data), then this repeated three times may actually remove much of the data. You have not provided enough detail to be sure. If is critical that you recover the data, take the drive to a professional.

There are web-based tools, and there are questions on this forum about them. I would need to check my (paper) files, before commenting further ..

Choosing 14.04 LTS Server would be better long term; or even 12.04 LTS.

Can you identify the version of Ubuntu, and describe the size/scale of the network you want this for.

Also try a different USB port, and/or check BIOS/setup for port hibernation / power saving.

comment Ubuntu very slow startup
This could be a driver issue, but I have only heard of similar issues with (inbuilt) touchpads. That was related to interrupts and device conflicts, with new drivers for touch screens (so unrelated to what you have).

comment Ubuntu very slow startup
Does it run OK with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS? Did you add/remove any USB devices (eg. mouse), or where they present at power on?

Please confirm: Is this affecting both Chromium and Firefox, or just Chromium?

Is this a really Windows issue, or do you think you have a virus under Ubuntu? Same (Windows) issue on an Android forum: forums.androidcentral.com/general-help-how/…

Why did you not install Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS? It may already support this laptop's WiFi chipset.

I have had similar issues, but then they did not re-occur when I later installed on different PC. This is a version/regression issue ..
