Very carefully. Go to :

Choose your operating system from the list. Then on the next window , near the bottom of the list you will find the Win Flash firmware. Click on it and follow the instructions very carefully. I stress carefully.

Can I replace orig hp ze1115 20GB hd w/60GB hd?


No the bios should be able to read the drive fine. The problem could be with the computer's motherboard. You should check to see if the original drive and new drive is detected in another system. Or you can try accessing them via an external casing / adapter.

My dvd/cd rom is not responding. it is not even listed under hardware.


First check if it is getting proper power. When you turn on the computer, do you see a blinking light on the Drive. Kindly check if the device is found in the BIOS, If it is not detected in the BIOS possibly check the data cable. If you have more than 1 drive make sure the jumper settings are correct.

Replaced hardrive with seagate 7200 500gb momentus


When you created a partition on the new hard drive, did you make the partition active?
A partition that has not been activated can be formatted and Windows installed, disk check etc. but will not boot up.
You can make the partition by booting up in DOS with either a floppy disk or a boot CD and run the DOS command "fdisk" and navigate to Set the partition active.

My hp pavilion dv5000ca lost the hard drive so i bought a new HD and installed winXP a couple months ago (feb) now my new HD blew and now i find myself going thru all the steps i used 1st time. i used...


Sorry to here about your HP, HD problems.

1st. what kind of hard drive are you installing ? What size and kind did you have orig. ?
I would download disk manager from the internet, or if its a SeaGate drive, SeaTools and run partition manager.

2nd. Also if you have a utility in your BIOS setup to check your hard drive (S.M.A.R.T.), I would attempt to run that utility and check the outcome.

3rd. If your unit has a floppy disk drive, it is probelly a older unit and you may want to see if HP has a BIOS upgrade for it.
Also, if you check the forms @ HP, you may find others with the same type of problems.
If your unit came with a restoration disk set, I would load from that set and make any changes after-wards.
Hope this helps, try it !!

At start no operating system found


By your description either the drive has died or somehow the BIOS has been changed to not be able to see the drive. Can you run setup on startup to get into the BIOS? From there you should be able to see if the BIOS is detecting the drive. Mose BIOS setups have a selection to automatically detect the drive. I would try that.

Bios says no ide device found (hard frive missing?)


If the BIOS is not detecting your hard drive, then there are two possible suspects here. Could just be your hard drive or it also be your motherboard.

If you have already reseated your hard drive and memory and the symptoms are still the same, then go to the nearest local computer shop that sells HP. Have them try a known-good hard drive on your system. If it works, purchase a new hard drive. If it doesn't work, your mobo needs to be replaced.

No operating system found


This is caused by :-
1. Your hard disk has failed.
2. Your BIOS settings for the hard drive has been altered
3. Your hard drive has been wiped or someone or a virus program that has deleted critical files.

Go into your BIOS setup to check the hard disk settings, if possible see if it will auto detect the hard drive.

Also boot up with a DOS disk run FDISK to see if you can detect a hard disk, partitions etc.

If the hard disk appears OK you may be able to do a disk repair, most likely you would need to re-install the operating system and the laptop drivers for video, audio, LAN, modem etc.
