Need copy of HP Pavilion zv 5316 us OS recovery Discs

I purchased HP Pavilion zv5316us computer in United States, then relocated to South East Asia, currently living Philippines. HP will not and refuse to ship to me the OS Recovery Discs for my unit. HP says it will only ship to US and Canada, because my computer was intended only for US @ Canada customers! I have tried to explain to the Idiots that millions of people do move, transfer and relocate, but for some stupid and idiotic reason HP does not care for there loyal customers after the sale of there products. THEY JUST DONT CARE, after we buy there **** and then cant even use it for more than 2 years

Hey they are under no circumstance do anything otherwise. They wont ship it to you. What you can do, is have them ship it to a friend in the states. And have your friend ship it to you. I think thats the best possible solution. Because the disc are only for sale by them and they are not online for free download. As much as i wish they were ISO downloads. HP will not provide with them. Especially because every HP model are different and it will be a lot of bandwith to allow data transfers.

My suggestion is to ask a friend to mail it to you. or if you go on forums ask someone if they can make a copy for you if they have the same HP Pavilion

I hope this helps. Please Rate Porfavor, :)

Wish you luck

I wish to unlock the region code so that i can play all regions


You can try either of these solutions as there does not appear to be a specific instruction for the DVD21:

Harman Kardon DVD1 / DVD5 / DVD10 / DVD20 / DVD50 / DVD1500 1. Player has to be in standby mode, no disc in tray
2. Press 3, 1, 4, 1, 5, 9, 2
3. Enter region (1-4)
4. Press OPEN, insert a disc

Note: Region is saved, you will have to set the RC every time you want to watch another DVD.

Harman Kardon DVD22 / DVD23 / DVD31 / DVD47 / HS100 HTS
1. Switch on
2. Press OSD
3. Select "Setup"
4. Enter 3, 1, 4, 1, 5, 9, 0 (the last number is the region)

See below region codes. It appears Harman Kardon only support 1-4, but it is worth trying 0 and seeing if it works.

First, see if you can find out what type of DVD it is PAL or NTSC. The difference (You need to keep this in mind when selecting your region):
NTSC: usually associated with the United States, Canada, Japan, South Korea, Mexico, Philippines, Taiwan, and other countries.
PAL usually associated with Europe, most of Africa, China, India, Australia, New Zealand, Israel, North Korea, and other countries (and Brazil, but using the refresh rate and resolution commonly associated with NTSC).

  2. Europe, Middle East, Egypt, Japan, South Africa, Swaziland, Lesotho, Greenland, French Overseas departments and territories
  3. Southeast Asia, South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau
  4. South America, Central America, Mexico, New Zealand, Australia, Papua New Guinea and much of Oceania
  5. Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, Ukraine, Belarus, Russia, Kazakhstan, Pakistan, Africa (except Egypt, South Africa, Swaziland, Lesotho), Central Asia, Mongolia, North Korea
  6. China
  7. Reserved for future use, MPAA-related DVDs and "media copies" of pre-releases in Asia
  8. International venues such as aircraft, cruise ships, spacecraft, etc.
ALLRegion ALL discs have all eight flags set, allowing the disc to be played in any location, on any player.

Where is the reset button


If you mean how do you return to factory condition, press F11 just before it boots and follow the prompts.

Recovering your computer without recovery discs
Creating recovery discs (or USB storage device solution)
Ordering recovery discs from HP in the United States and Canada
Finding recovery discs from other Web sites
Contacting Support
HP recovery discs can be used to return a computer's software configuration to its original condition. HP provides a recovery solution on the hard drive, but it is still a good idea to keep recovery discs stored in a safe place in the event of a hard drive failure. Use the sections in this document to obtain a recovery solution that works best for you.
note.png
NOTE:HP computers designed for commercial use, such as Workstations or Pro series, use "Operating System" or "HP Restore Plus" DVDs. To order these types of discs, go to the HP Replacement Part Store . Recovering your computer without recovery discs You may not need recovery discs to recover the software on your computer. HP provides a recovery solution on a separate area of the hard drive. If the hard drive is still functional, you can still perform an HP system recovery from the hard drive as long as the recovery information has not been destroyed or corrupted.
To do a software recovery from the hard drive, turn on the computer and repeatedly press the F11 key until "Windows is loading files..." displays on the screen. If your computer originally came with Windows XP or earlier, press F10 to enter recovery instead of F11.

    Hi,you can not play all DVDs unless you have a ALL CODE DVD player..
    Here is the detailed info..

    -----
    DVD region codes are a DRM technique designed to allow motion picture studios to
    control aspects of a release, including content, release date, and price,
    according to the region. DVD video discs may be encoded with a region code
    restricting the area of the world in which they can be played.
    It is therefore this US Association that is responsible for the RPC system that
    effectively divides the world into six regions for the purposes of controlling
    and manipulating distribution within the global DVD market.
    There are six different official regions and two informal variations.[citation
    needed] DVD discs may use one code, a combination of codes (Multi-Region), most
    codes (Region 0) or every code/no codes (Region All). The commercial DVD player
    specification requires that a player to be sold in a given place not play discs
    encoded for a different region; however, region-free DVD players are also
    commercially available.In addition, many DVD players can be modified to be
    region-free, allowing playback of all discs. Region code Area 0 Informal term meaning "worldwide". Region 0 is not an official setting; discs that bear the region 0 symbol either have no flag set or have region 1-6 flags set. 1 United States, Canada, Bermuda, U.S. territories 2 Europe (except Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus), Middle East, Egypt, Japan, South Africa, Swaziland, Lesotho, Greenland 3 Southeast Asia, South Korea, Republic of China (Taiwan), Hong Kong, Macau 4 Mexico, Central America, South America, Australia, New Zealand, Oceania 5 Afghanistan, Ukraine, Belarus, Russia, Africa (except Egypt, South Africa, Swaziland, and Lesotho), Central and South Asia, Mongolia, North Korea 6 People's Republic of China, Hong Kong 7 Reserved for future use (found in use on protected screener copies of MPAA-related DVDs and "media copies" of pre-releases in Asia) 8 International venues such as aircraft, cruise ships, etc. ALL Region ALL discs have all 8 flags set, allowing the disc to be played in any locale on any player.

    DVD video discs may be encoded with a region code restricting the area of the world in which they can be played. Discs without region coding are called all region or region 0 discs.
    The commercial DVD player specification requires that a player to be sold in a given place not play discs encoded for a different region (region 0 discs are not restricted). The purpose of this is to allow motion picture studios to control aspects of a release, including content, release date, and, especially, price, according to the region. Many DVD players are or can be modified to be region-free, allowing playback of all discs.Region 1 Players/DVDs include: Canada, United States, US Territories, and Bermuda. See below:

    Computer virus ruined my tower, hp pavillion s7320n, prod. #:EP140AA. I need a recovery disk? Drivers disk? And a lot of technical help. Marco


    If you are not able to create a set of recovery discs, you may be able to order a set of replacement discs from HP. HP maintains a stock of replacement recovery discs for several years after the product has been released. However, because of licensing restrictions, HP is only able to provide these recovery discs for a limited time. If your computer is several years past its warranty period, HP may not be able to supply replacement discs for your computer. If this is the case, you can install a new operating system that meets the minimum system requirements of your computer, or, alternatively, upgrade your computer hardware. To find out if HP has recovery discs that you can order and to order them from HP, use the following steps:
    NOTE: The steps in this section apply to United States and Canada . For Europe, Middle East, and Africa please refer to the HP support document Europe, Middle East, and Africa - Statement on the Availability of the Recovery Software on CD . For other countries/regions, contact your local HP support center for information about obtaining recovery CDs.
    1. Go to the Software & Driver Downloads page .
    2. Enter the product number or model name for your computer into the field provided. Figure 1: Product name/number field c00772934.gif
    3. Click the operating system link (the version of Windows that came with your computer). Figure 2: Example of operating system link c00772003.gif
    4. Find the Recovery Disc ordering section and click the link to start the ordering process.
      NOTE: Before trying to order, make sure that you have read the important "Read this..." information listed in this Recover Disc ordering section.
      NOTE: If the link to order a recovery disc set is not available , there may not be any more sets available for purchase. HP cannot create recovery discs that contain a version of Windows that has been obsoleted by Microsoft, such as Windows 95, 98, and Me. Some recovery disc sets may have run out of stock and may not be available to order. Figure 3: Recovery disc ordering links c00772004.gif
    5. Follow the directions from the "Read this.." article and from the ordering pages to complete the ordering process.

      Thanks. Please take a moment to rate this as FixYa.
      Thank you.
