Do you have a Windows XP disk?  If so, insert that to complete the installation.  If that doesn't work, try using this link to download SP3.

Trying to install a new xp install on an HP Pavilion a1320n with a new 1.5 TB drive. XP only seems to recognize it as a 131062 MB drive. Is this an XP problem or a problem with the BIOS or...


Theoreticaly win xp will support 4Tb hard driver (hdd), but, your motherboard need to support this size as well, in your case, in both accoutns you are within limits.

This was theory, now practicality, LBA (Logical Block Address) was originally created as 24bit for ATA/PATA?ATAPI devices, calculated size supported therefore is 137.4GB.

In case of your computer, this motherboard should support 48bit formating and therefore size of 144.000.000GB (144.000TB).

I would suggest following actions, go to this site:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?os=228&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&sw_lang=&product=1818050#N1388

Download newwest BIOS, unfold it to the disk and update BIOS, then use in installation windows xp sp2 or above, windows xp alone do not format properly harddrivers that size.

Another causative agent is how windows create partition and format under NTFS/NTFS5 system. It creats enormous size MBR and reserved "patch" for system files, in your case this is main "loss" of the space.

You can actually "reclaim" heaps of this spce by partitioning, but this crates another problems and you need to investiate which method will be best in your particular case.

This article may be of some help. There is a command prompt command that will rebuild the WMI repository. It may fix your issue.

Choppy audio windows vista


If audio is choppy it indicates the processor is "busy" and it is buffering due to some other process using up resources and keeping the machine busy so it cannot stream the audio properly. Possibly check the running processes and see which ones have high cpu usage and turn them off, then try it. It may also be a media player issue - have you tried updating the media player or reinstalling it - sometimes installing a service pack will cause a problem with the actual media player - reinstalling them usually fixes that problem.

If you have tried another monitor and result is the same, then it's a faulty graphics card.
If graphics card is sharing system memory, then you might need to replace ram to get it work again.

HP site said load XP SP3 upgrade Utility for system with AMD Processors. When I load this Utility and check for It is showing message Your system does not meet minimum requirements for this update. Update...


This means that microsoft has deemed your computer as not having the system requirements for the service pack.
Could be something as simple as you haven't installed service pack 1 ans 2 yet..
I would use windows update on your start menu, take all the recommended updates, generally once the updates required for service pack 3 are installed , then the next time you run windows update it will look for the next set of updates. sometimes it takes 2 or 3 update sessions to get the one you want if you havent updated your computer in some time..
regards..

How to install xp on hp pavilion dv9000 laptop


Load your XP cd and restart the computer. You will be asked if you want to install XP and if you already have an operating system you will have to delete the existing partition(s) or create a new partition. The instructions are displayed on the screen so just follow the prompts. Steve Medley

Xp or linux couldnot load in my laptop


I've successfully installed XP SP3 on a DV5Z (custom build). Here is what I did, you will need to check that your DV5Z has the same components before using these drivers. 

Step 1 Create an XP boot disc 
Get the AMD motherboard/SATA drivers slipstreamed into an XP SP2 installation disk. I use NLite for this from http://www.nliteos.com 

Drivers are available at: 
http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Support/Motherboard/Driver_DownloadFile.aspx?FileType=Driver&FileID=3517 

Other forum posts have more information on how to create the disc but I found NLite pretty easy to use. I suggest slipstreaming the SP2 patch into your installation disc. 


Step 2 Install XP 
Install XP from a Bootable disc you created using NLite. Get XP working and upgrade to SP2 if your installation disc wasn't already SP2. 

You should see all the devices now in Device Manager in XP, but with exclamation marks. 


Step 3 Get the XP drivers/software 
The HP Compaq 6735s shares many components so you can get many drivers from this link: 

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=3687622&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=368762
1&swLang=8&taskId=135&swEnvOID=1093 


Audio UAA bus driver sp33867 Install this before upgrading to XP SP3 
HP Software update sp38874 
Synaptics touchpad sp39032 
Wireless assistant sp39374 
Quicklaunch 6.40F1 sp39425 
XP SP2 updates sp39429 I guess these will be in XP SP3 
Driveguard software sp39602 
Webcam driver sp39606 
Driveguard driver sp39738 
AMD CPU driver sp40535 
AMD SATA driver sp39719 

The following is on other laptop models but you can just search for it manually or use the following link: 

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=US&swItem=ob-62438-1&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=3687621 

Audio IDT driver sp39671 

Drivers from other sites: 

1) Realtek Ethernet driver 
http://www.realtek.com/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=13&PFid=5&Level=5&Conn=4&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false 

If the link doesn't work you want the PCI Express versions fromhttp://www.realtek.com 

2) AMD Dual-Core Optimizer 
http://www.amd.com/us-en/Processors/TechnicalResources/0,,30_182_871_14098,00.html 
If the link doesn't work look around on http://www.amd.com 

3) ENE CIR driver version 1.3.306 
http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/Other-DRIVERS-TOOLS/Others/MSI-GX600-08-ENE-CIR-Driver-133060.shtml 
I found that the 1.3.306 Vista driver works fine on XP but newer Vista drivers do not. I couldn't find an XP driver 

4) Atheros Wifi AR5008 driver 
http://www.atheros.cz/ 

5) Realtek Card Reader 
http://www.realtek.com/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=15&PFid=25&Level=4&Conn=3&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false 

If the link doesn't work look around on http://www.realtek.com 

6) ATI graphics 
Get these from http://www.ati.com you need to get the Integrated chipset version if you have HD3200 graphics. 

7) Realtek Audio Codec 
http://www.realtek.com/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=14&PFid=24&Level=4&Conn=3&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false 

I installed both the ATI HDMI Audio device and the Windows XP driver, you may only need the ATI HDMI. 


Step 4 Installation 
Install the drivers first (after devices have been detected), then the software. You will need to force install some of the drivers by going through Device Manager but most of the drivers have installation programs. CANCEL ANY DETECT HARDWARE DIALOG BOXES TO AVOID AUTO-INSTALLING THE WRONG VERSION OF A DRIVER. 

You will also need to carry out a registry fix for the wireless LED. Copied from another post: 

"For the Wireless LED its a little trickier. If you can find the root directory for your wireless network adapter like Paddy MacSeamus mentioned above its pretty simple. Follow his directions until you find your Wireless Network Adapter listed next to DriverDesc. In that same directory, i.e., 0003, add these Dword values just like you did above: 
New-> Dword 
Value Name=gpioFunc0ActHi and Value Data=0 
Click Ok. 
New-> Dword 
Value Name=gpioPinFunc0 and Value Data=3 
You are done. These values should be seen in the same window as DriverDesc and the name of your Wireless Network Adapter. The LED will work correctly after you disable and re-enable your wireless." 

After doing all this, my DV5Z works correctly except for the following: 

- Mute button LED always on orange 
- No on-screen display of volume/mute etc. You can use Microsoft Intellitype (use the Digital Keyboard device and download this) instead of the HP software - see other forum posts if you need more info on where to find this 
- QuickPlay key doesn't work. Presumably this can be fixed by installing the QuickPlay software for another notebook eg DV6000 series but I've not tried this 

One final thing - I was given incorrect SP details by an HP person on an online chat session and told to refer to manufacturer websites for other drivers. The latter is incompetent but acceptable in my view, whereas the former is clearly unacceptable (why give out incorrect details on their own drivers and pretend they're doing me a favour?). 

Good luck!
