Hi Harrison685,

Thanks for posting in FixYa.

Sorry Window Xp can not be retrieve back by restoring. You need to Reinstall it. Please use your Window XP Installation Disk for this.

Regards
ELLIN

I just got me a hp pavilion dv 2000 two days ago use it was missing the charger i turn it on and is asking me for a password i cant get in contact with the person who sold me it.


If windows xp is installed and there is no password in administrator account you can login by using the following method:
Press CTRL + ALT + DELETE.
A new window will appear, type administrator as username and leave password field as blank then press enter or ok.
You will be logged in.

If you are using windows 7 or vista then this method will not work.There is different method for windows 7 or vista.
Let me know if there is any problem.

Can I do a new restor with windows xp professional? My daughter is having problems with it and I thought it would work better than vista. I am not able to find the invoice but have the office max flyer...


Paul, I have been reformatting DV6000s to Vista and have had no issues....in fact Vista is running better on this platform than XP. Unfortunately, HP has decided to not release drivers for Windows 7. There are however plenty of great drivers on their website for Vista. I am currently installing Vista Ultimate and has been flawless. Just make sure you have at least 2 GB of ram for it to wotk as it should. If you really want XP again....go to the HP support site and under drivers, put in your model number of the laptop and pick the operating system you want....look through the drivers and see if they have the restore discs located there. They will mail you the restore discs for a fee. I ordered some three years ago and they charged me 20 dollars. Good luck

IE 7


Yes you can upgrade your Internet Explorer to IE7 (assuming you have IE6 right now)

You can download and install IE7 from Windows updates or go to the Windows Support Site to download it at http://support.microsoft.com

Only upgrade to IE7. Do not download and install IE8 Beta. It is still in testing. IE7 will not cause any problem with your HP Pavilion.
