i have hp dv5000 as well. and i had the same problem. what helped me is that: you go to start - control panel - administrative tools - then take: device manager. in the device manager window you click on the plus near: IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers right click on: primery IDE channel and select uinstall. at that moment you will probably feel that the computer is back to its speed. restart anyway. it will tell you new hardwear found, click: ok to everything it will install the primery IDE chenell again. well that worked for me...
