Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook

2 Answers

I have major probs with both my laptops...

I have a Toshiba satilite, about 5 years old that kept cutting off, so I both a OEM XP disk, and tried reinstalling windows. It won't let me get through the installation before cutting off. I plug it up and tried just with battery, sit still happens. I bought a HP that just recently cuts off before it boots. Tested the battery and plug, but still cuts off before booting. What is my problem or what should I change?

Hi Da Doggi,
I guess there is a problem with your battery. Have you checked your battery charge? How old are your batteries?

I think your problem is with the battery ac/power voltage.
Make sure of the right voltage for your Laptops is selected on the Ac/power device you are using.
In other simple words, the high voltage causes the laptop to cut off as yours, and the soloution is that you try adjusting the voltage into a lower voltage.
I hope this works!

No disk

The issue is that the PC's from Dell, HP, Gateway, etc all have what's called OEM licenses. If you look around on the PC/Laptop, you should find a Windows sticker that says exactly what is to be loaded onto it (Windows XP Service Pack 2, for example). Sometimes the manufacturer will make a partition to load the install to on the hard drive - so the first thing to check is if there is 'boot options' key on startup - see if you have a recovery console or a factory settings area.
If you where to try and install a copy that doesn't match, it will fail outright. If you install it to another PC and image it over - it will need you to repair it, and won't let you do that without the proper disc. Your best bet might be to look on eBay or on the manufacturers site for a match for the OEM sticker - "Dell OEM Windows XP Home SP2" for example.
Hope that helps.

How do I remove the hard drive in Toshiba SatellitePro A10 EN? (Removing the plastic cover exposes only the end of the hard drive. I'm reluctant to just start pulling on it!

  • The original Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 HDD is fitted into a Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 Hard Disk Drive cradle - Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 HDD caddy.

      • Gently remove the cradle from the laptop, yes pull on it
      • Unscrew the original Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 Hard Disk Drive & remove it from the cradle.
      • Screw the new Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 Hard Disk Drive into the cradle & refit the cradle into the laptop.
      • Re-install XP or Vista

          I need to get back in my OEM vista home premium

          If you contact Toshiba, they can send you the original restore disks. If you are really nice to them, they might send them out for free.. I believe normally they do charge but they sent them to me for free a couple of years ago with my Toshiba laptop :)

          Satilite 1800 3 beeps no boot 1 long 2 short

          That is a memory error. Remove and reseat the memory in your computer. If the error persists and you have more than 1 stick, try each stick separately to find the faulty unit. If you only have one stick, then the memory will need to be replaced.

          My windows xp did not pass genuine license

          If you just reinstalled xp and used a OEM disk to do it instead of the restore disk that came with the laptop Microsoft WILL NOT accept it as a genuine copy if windows since you "stole it" since you did not use the branded version of windows that came with your laptop. They changed this policy a couple of years back and is a major pain.

          If thats what you did you will need to buy a restore disk from the manufacturers website.

          That model Toshiba does not come with a recovery CD, does not have a restore partition, and does not allow you to creat a recovery disc when working normally, so unfortunatly you have 2 choices.

          1. Call Toshiba and try to get them to mail you a recovery disk, if they have any they will likely charge you for the disk + shipping.

          2. Reinstall windows manually using a clean install, you can use any OEM windows disk as long as it is the same version as your windows product key on the bottom of the laptop (i.e XP Home/XP PRO/ XP MCE/ or VISTA - all vista disks are basically the same and have all 3 versions on them)

          Make sure you have backups of the drivers for your network adapter and other hardware before doing a clean install.
