Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook

1 Answer

My hpdv6000 recovery got stuck at 98% and showed 5 mins remaining then after 15-30 mins it moved to 99% and still showing 5mins! its been 30 mins no action seems its stuck. I started the process by going in BIOS setup (f10)then did something and changed it to default boot and CMOS i guess. restarted and windows loaded. Remember i had the recovery dvd in the rom. i dont know its reformatting from the recovery D drive or using the recovery DVD. i need some info what to do?

    Hi Humanoid. I know this is quite old, but I want to provide a possible solution for anyone else who may come across this problem. You may have to wait anywhere between 1-14 hours for it to finish this part of the recovery. Mine hung at 99% for several hours, then finally finished that part. There is another 3-6 hours of software installs after that, so be prepared.

Hello Humanold,

Please check the following recovery steps:

Full recovery by using recovery partition:

1. Reboot the notebook PC.
2. Keep tapping F11 when the Compaq logo displays.
3. When the Recovery Manager appears, click Next.
4. When prompted to use the Microsoft System Restore program, select No and click Next.
5. When prompted to use the System Recovery, select Yes and click Next.
6. Select the option to perform the recovery without backing up files and click Next.
7. Upon completion of the process, recovery will display "The PC Recovery was successfully completed".
The recovery process will return your PC to the factory image.

Full recovery by using recovery disks:

1. Open the disc drive door and turn off the PC.
2. Insert the first Recovery disc in the disc drive and close the door.
3. Press the power button to turn on the PC.
4. The HP Recovery Manager window appears during the boot process.
If the HP Recovery Manager can access the hard drive, a prompt is displayed to backup the user files before continuing the recovery.
If the HP Recovery Manager cannot access the hard drive to fix the system errors, the HP Recovery Manager will overwrite all the data and reconfigure the entire hard drive to its original condition.

5. Follow the prompts to insert any additional recovery discs in the disc drive.

Recovery management never complete

A little late, but perhaps useful to others with similar problems. Did you have all peripherals disconnected (except mouse, keyboard and monitor)?
We had similar problems when trying to downgrade a Packard Bell PC from Windows 8 to Windows 7 (keeping a backup of all settings). We got stuck at 99% for hours, and we ended up downgrading including a reset of the settings (the other remaining option was completely reformatting the HDD). This recovery worked, but subsequently the PC would not fully boot Windows 7: it got stuck in an everlasting cycle of booting-rebooting.
It later turned out that a Netgear Wifi dongle had been connected throughout. When this was disconnected, Windows 7 booted normally... This may have been the reason for the recovery stall at 99% as well.

I just bought an ACER ASPIRE AS7745-5782 yesterday. I started the computer and it told me to make recovery disks. Put the first disk in and got to time burnt 5:14 and time remaining 6:17 . It sat there...


What kind of disk are you using to do the recovery disks Acer told me that i should use DVD-R disks But i dont think that is the problem all though it could be

i would be tempted to if possible take the laptop back to where you got it from because there may be a problem with the cd/dvd drive

And i reckon that if its a brand new laptop then it should create the recovery disks for you and if it dosen't then the seller should sort it out for you

good luck

Tried inserting recovery cd-rom in satellite P10 (windows XPHome) and first screen shows message about running Windows98! Aborted process and PC is OK. Is it safe to proceed?

should be. It looks like someone updated that computer from Win 98 to XP - that's why the recovery disks are for Win 98. You should be ok to proceed if you didn't do any of the recovery. Are you able to use System Restore to force computer to revert to an earlier time when everything was working ok?

I can't do anything my start doesn't even show up

When you start windows if nothing shows up and you wait 5 mins still nothing, press ctrl+alt+del it opens task manager click on file > run > explorer ( first go to processes if explorer is running right click it and end process ) then start explorer that shuld load it up to help fix it, not a perminent fix but you now have access.

#2 if that dont work, use the recovery console on the windows xp disk. maybe a chkdsk

HP Laptop HPdv6000 Display Issue

Start your unit in safe mode and see if the line still appears.
F-7 will get you into safe mode..
If you still have the line, it is a video problem and my need serviceing.
If not, you should try re-installing your firm ware.
