I just bought the Probook 4710s 5 days ago, and some times when I try to start the computer, it just wrights on the screen Non system disk or disk error, please replace and press any key... I don't have any CD or DVD in CD/DVD unit or any USB keys... when I try to scan the hard disk it reports to me No hard disk found. Every now and than it starts Windows normaly, but it keeps repeating frequently the same boot problem and not beeing able to start my comp.
Does it mean that the hard disk is bad or broken, or it will be soon...or what? Should I return the laptop and ask for replacement?
i have a hp 620 notebook, and it is given me an error message "non-system disk or disk error" after i turned it on. it had worked find in the morning and now it is displaying this error message and i cannot log into my notebook. i tried to recover it with hp recovery but it said "data is not valid.
I have always bought Dells but am leaning more towards HP and am baffled by the fact that the CSR says I cannot get a laptop with an operating system disk for use with the laptop I am purchasing. I would gladly pay a fee for the disk as I have when I have purchased my Dells.
Is there any way (other than just purchasing the operating system outside of the the HP purchase) to have HP include a oem disk with my purchase?
HP Pavilin dv4...i recently installed linux Ubuntu to re format my laptop then changed my mind and want to install windows 7 but have been un able to install it using a dvd or a thumb drive. i do not have an offical windows 7 operating system disk.
My hp pavilion g7 froze yesterday after saying it couldn't connect to internet. I have tried to reboot. The hp logo comes on and then dot circle for about three min. Then the screen goes blank, but it is still on, you can see bluish light on screen. Any way I hit escape during on and got the screen with options. I ran the run in test and start up test. Both came back with hard disk short DST. Failure. The smart check passed anyway the failure I'd is 64x950-6h9783-mfpx0k-60uc03.
I've made a backup when I bought the notebook Aspire V3-771G. After that, I've installed Win 7 with my own serial key. All partitions I deleted. Right now I want to recover system to factory default but I haven't recovery disk nor recovery partition. I've got only backup five files ended with .NFB extensión and one with .CAL extensión. I've tested ghost programs and backup software but none of them could read backup files. Is there any solution for this without buying the recovery disks ?
HDD broke. I bought new one and recovery cds. BUT my aspire V3-551G never boots from cd. Copied system disk to flash and that boots but no way to get it to recognize recovery disk 1. Is the fault in bios, physical dvd drive, or recovery software?
Can I (or should i): A. edit some file in usb system disk to get it to cooperate B. update bios C. move a dvd drive from other laptop D. get usb cd drive (tried didnt work) E. get other usb flash hdd (as if that changes things somehow) F. Move HDD to other laptop and either boot or work through windows there G. Find acer accepted laptop fixer (how)
I had a hard disk fail and had to reinstall Windows 7 on a new disk, but I could not read the COA. I ordered the recovery disks and now have a slight problem. When I try and boot to the System Disk 1 I get a no bootable media on disk message. I installed Windows 7 from a DVD I have for another computer and it works fine, but I can not validate Windows. How can I make the laptop run System Disk 1?
I am so tired of receiving Low Disk Space on recovery (D). I have done everything it asked. Empty Recycle Bin which is EMPTY. I am not a computer wizard but it seems unfair that I have pay over $150.00 year to correct this problem once a year. I have checked a lot of places and it just keeps telling me the same thing. That doesn't work.
i bought a new hp laptop so i started to make recovery disks but when collect data it recieved 50% and then stopped and give me the following screen canceling in progress recovery disk creation will reume where you left off in the process the next you start the program
I am using HP Dv2000 notebook, now when i try to create a recovery disk, i intially used the CD and copied the file then i noticed that that the total no of CD required is 18 where as if we use DVD it needs 2-3, so the 2'nd one i inserted is a DVD, the recovery program now it is saying that you should install a CD rather than a DVD, can i start again the process of copying using my new 3 DVD's?
my laptop, hp pavillion g60-120us has been slowing down and crashing lately, so i ran hd tune to check it's temperature and found out it's running at around 62c with several programs running - firefox with multiple tabs, majic jack, hd tune, and the usual security-antiivirus and spyware.
when i first turn the laptop on, it starts at around 40c and quickly goes up to the 60's within 20-30 minutes.
when i run a scan of antivirus or ultimate defrag it tops out at around 70c.
the hd tuner hits critical hard disk temperature at 55c and pop ups a message every few seconds.
i've also run speedfan, and it tells me the same temperature.
is it normal for a laptop to run a temperature in the high 60's...should i put it on a block of dry ice, or move to the north pole?
Just got my new HP Pavillion dv5-1000 laptop and I'm very pleased with it so far, apart from one problem.
The machine came without any backup disks, which seems to be a standard HP thing. So I've tried to create my own disk using the Recovery Manager software. It goes through the first part of the process collecting files, but when it reaches 100% I get an error message saying that the files are more than 0mb and it can't continue.
I've tried using a different blank DVD but get the same message.
It's a pain, and is spoiling my enjoyment of an otherwise excellent machine. If anyone can suggest a way around this I'd be grateful.
I've tried this fix:unable to burn Recovery DVD but the software doesn't install.
I was recovering my Hp Pavillion dv5120us laptop and once it asked for my 3rd recovery disc, i noticed it was cracked in 3 places on the disc. I put it in the laptop b/c it is the only copy i have, in hopes that it would work anyway but it did not.
If someone has their own set of the recovery discs for this model computer, please send me a copy or a link to download it so i can make my own copies. I am not that computer savvy so please make it as easy as possible to download.
I also tried ordering the recovery discs from the manufacturer website but once i clicked on 'recovery disc set for windows xp' it gave me a 'cannot display web page' notice.
On my HP Pavilion the Recovery disk creator kicks out disk 1 (it says it will make 3) with an error note. If I stick another disk in it starts all over.My DVD+R disk is a 4.7 GB. Could it be only one disk was needed?
who knows if my Presario R4219, actually mounting a 60GB disk, can support a 250GB HD ? I was about to buy the WD2500BEVE, it's IDE and ATA-6, so it should work but I'm not sure the bios will recognize the whole disk dimension.
I have a brand new DV7, and I've noticed that when I insert either Blu-ray or DVD-ROM disk, the computer gets very bogged down for about 5 minutes, and there's no recognition of the disk being there. There's no disk driving "whirring", and I can't explore the contents of the drive. Then, 5 minutes later, the drive whirs up and and the computer seems completely normal. This is bascially an out-of-the-box problem in terms of possible spyware, virus, etc. It's as if the insertion of the disk puts it in a coma for 5 mintues.
wanna know some things before i install Windows 7 as a primary OS? first of all i want to ask that can i partition the hard disk as i want. means rite now vista won't allow me to partition beyond 140Gb but i am having 210GB of free space! also if i ever wanted to return to Vista can i use Recovery to revert back? also is it a wise decision to go from vista to Windows 7?
I have re-installed my dv5t and for some reason I have an "extra" removable disk, I can't find how to remove it. I can click on the "safely remove hardware" and it is removed but after restart it comes back.
I'm upgrading my laptop's hard drive soon to a Western Digital WD5000BEVT and I plan to do a clean install of vista after the hard drive swap. I know the procedure to install media direct first and everything. My question is regarding the dell vista disk. Is it free of bloatware? Once installed will I have a clean system? Or will I have to go back again and uninstall loads of crap.
I have that hard drive in my ps3 and love it. Fast, cool and quiet.
