Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I have an hp pavilion 7840 that says "operating system not found"

I've had it for many years and its always been great to me. I have many pictures, work and school files etc. I use it mainly for work since it has publisher etc on it. I normally just use my laptop when i need the internet but the majority of my files on on my desktop. I recently moved and havent used the pc in about 2 months. I went to connect it today to grab my files to transfer most to mylaptop and it's telling me "operating system not found"!!! Naturally I'm in a panic! I'm in the BIOS setup utility but I have no idea what to look for or what to and I'm becoming more confused the more I read on the internet (through ym laptop.) Please help me by guiding me through what I need to do to get my pc up and running and retrieve my files. PLEASE PLEASE HELP! Thank you!

It is quite possible the hard drive froz. Look in the Bios to see if it says there is a hard drive connected. The firs thing to try is to hook it up to your laptop with a usb wire made to handle the type of drive you have ide/sata sometimes you will be able to retrieve your infor from the disk that way.
One recent savior I read about is to try to put the hard drive in the freezer(sealed in 2 zip lock bags) for 6-10 hours and then try it as sometimes the contraction of freezing will free it. If that works get your info off FAT as you don't know how long it will work for.

2003 Pontiac Vibe - 4 Cyl. 150k miles. Ignition coils keep going bad - every 4-6k miles. Coil 1 has been replaced 4 times, Coil 3 once. Coil 4 twice in the past year (20k miles). All spark plugs


Install new spark plugs, 4 new coils & replace the oxygen sensors

O2 Sensors are only good for 100,000 miles, then slow
down or quite

No idea why the coils do not last 5 or 6 years

Cylinder #1 is always at the front on a 4 cyl

Go to Rock Auto --Buy Wells Coils,NGK Double
Platinum Plugs & NTK O2 Sensor

Those parts are expensive because you have a Totota
Motor I guess

Clean MAF Sensor with CRC MAF Sensor Cleaner

My 98caddilac deville keeps running hot,i put thermostate,waterpump i took it to shop they did a pressure test it all check out good . i was told it could be my passenger side fan but i think it should be...


I have a 1997 Cadillac Sedan Deville that did the same thing. I replaced the same things you have replaced on yours. The end result was a blown head gasket which I have found out is very common on older model Cadillacs that we own. After replacing the head gasket (which cost me parts/labor $2,200.00) at a reliable mechanic's shop that I have used for over 20 years, the car does not over heat. When I replaced the head gasket, my Cadillac had 131K. However, I have seen blown head gaskets on Cadillacs (similiar year/model) with as little as 50k at used car dealerships. Cadillacs are terrific vehicles but I've found out that bad head gaskets on older models are common problems. Good Luck...Hope this helps a little. A. Levisy in Virginia

Ever since I've had my 2002 trailblazer the back driver's side window won't go up or down. At times the window seems to fall down about an inch or so and I can full with the switch and can...


your window is driven using a cable drive system. kinda like bicycle brake & gearshift cables.
these systems are prone to break. i just wonder why it made noise for so long without breaking.
what you probably need is a window regulator assy.. napa sells them for $191.00 with a new
motor. the hardest part of doing the job is getting the door pannel off without breaking anything

What is the scheduled maintenence requirement for a timing belt on a 2005 chevy cavalier?


assuming you have a 2.2 lt ecotec engine, according to what i read from GM reports, they say these motors are suppose to be pretty much maintenance free! ha! so they say. i've had nothing else but problems with them & so has all my family & friends. true, but unless you've had major problems with it you should never have to even touch the timing chain @ all. i drove my old FORD into the gound @ 635,000 klts, took great care of it & never changed the timing chain on it. ya, you guessed it, i'm a ford man & always will be. my wife is selling her cavalier. all the best.
