CANT RESTORE MY COMPUTER


It is asking for the recovery discs that should have been made in the event there was a problem with the recovery sector on drive D or the hard drive failed. The only option is go to www.hp.com contact customer support and the technical department to see if they can sell you the much needed discs.

Hi i have a porbolem with my hp pavilion dv5000 so i wanna reformat it and i dont know why


To reformat your HP machine, you need the recovery disks...This article tells you how to create them....Note...they can only be created ONCE from your machine.....so make sure you do it correctly:

http://www.pctechbytes.com/hp/hp-recovery-cd-creation

Next.... BACK UP your data...and TEST it.....make sure your data is working on your backup media....formatting the drive will erase all your data and start over from a fresh copy of Windows.

After that you need to boot your PC from the recovery disk (if it doesn't ask you to boot from the CD you will need to hit F10 key at your HP splash screen to enter the system BIOS. Find the boot order setting and change it so the CD/DVD drive is on top)

After you successfully boot from the DVD, you can pretty much follow the on screen instructions. The following page has more information on reinstalling Windows: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/help/install-reinstall-uninstall

Good Luck...be careful, but don't be afraid :) as long as you have good backups you should be all good.

When I turn on my HP Pavillion dv6000 it starts up but when it gets to the screen where you type in your password its black with the cursor on it.


marissalynn5, use the Restoration Disk, and choose Non-Destructive Installation when asked. (Repair)

If you do Not have the Restoration Disk (CD);

In the USA the disk is free. The shipping and handling is not.
$17 for a 5 to 7 day ship. $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship.

Call HP Support's toll-free phone number 1-800-474-6836.
24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Tell the representative that you need the Restoration Disk.
The representative may ask for the Product Number, or the Serial Number.

This is on the Bottom of the laptop in the white Service Tag.
P/N = Product Number
S/N = Serial Number

Turn the laptop on, install the disk in the DVD optical drive, close the drive tray. Perform the above.

If you are not in the USA, here is HP Support Worldwide contact information,

http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/wwcontact_us.html

[ If I may. If you are not in the USA, and obtain the Restoration Disk, may I ask how support treated you, and the cost of shipping of the disk? Was the disk free? ]

If using the Restoration Disk does not cure the problem, then I have bad news.

The HP Pavilion dv2000 series, Pavilion dv6000 series, and dv9000 series, have an inherent problem with the graphics chip.

This video explains the problem, and the repair, and possible warranty work by HP,

This is very tricky and I'd reccomend you get a technician to do this for you if you are not 100% confident - make sure they offer no-fix no-fee (like us at MCSLondon)
Anyway here is a guide:

This problem is occurs when your windows was corrupted. Insert recovery disk and then start your PC. Recover your windows. This will need to format your C drive. After this, start windows, it will start normally as before.

The in my HP Pavilion dv5000 laptop is ditorted but when I hold from the top it will work?


I think your problem is LCD. To make sure, try entering the bios when your pc starts. You can enter bios by pressing F10. If within the bios setup utility, your problem remains same then yoy need to change the LCD.

Hp pavilion dv5000 laptop screen distortion


Same here. However mine is a toshiba satellite. Starts fine but after a minute or two its like watching tv in the 60s all sorts of white lines distort the screen. So i took the back off and removed all of the screws for the sceen around the top and bottom. Just the ones that mount it to the cover. By applying pressure to certain parts i managed to narrow it down and after about 10 attempts at ptting it all back together i did it with 2 screw missing in the top left hand corner and low and behold it seems to work fine. I am thinking that over time maybe some of the mouldings expand and maybe apply pressure onto the back of the screen and start to cause problems. I am not saying this is a cure for all but it certainly worked for me. Good Luck.
