Sounds like you bought your new hard drive clean with no . You simply need to put in a boot disc, such as a windows XP installation disc for example, and go through and install the operating system. Look through your CDs you got with your laptop to find a disc with a windows operating system on it, for example Windows XP Home. It may say 'press any key to boot from disc...' along the line so just press any key and you will be on your way to setting up your new system

Hope This Helps

I have a laptop HP pavilion dv 4000. When boot i have a message PXE-E61 Media test failure check cable PXE-M0F exiting PXE ROM


You get this message when your hard drive is gone - it's not being detected and the computer is looking for some other source to boot from. You can probably easily replace it yourself if you have the original discs handy: it's located at the bottom, right below the monitor port and the two USB ports and takes half a minute to remove. This laptop uses good old ATA/IDE hard drives of the 2.5" variety, and new ones are pretty cheap (below $.50 per gigabyte) at your local stores or on Amazon / eBay.

How do i restore my hp pavilion ze2000 to factory settings without disks?


Hello,
Most HP Pavilions have a recovery partition on there hard drive. You will need to press f11 when you boot to activate the recovery segment of the hard drive.
Now if the recovery partition was distoryed then you will need to call Hp for replacement image disks witch they will charge to ship to you.
I do wish you good luck on this and do hope that you leave positive feedback for your response today.

Sincerely

.I just got my HP


The hard drive is bad ... nobody can fix it. If you just purchased it, HP should replace it. It should give you an error message when running the diagnostics from the BIOS ... something like 10008. They can use this code to authorize a replacement. If they will not replace it, ask for a supervisor or send it back. They should have a 30 return policy.

My HP Laptop suddenly started showing vertical stripes around once a week and could use it anymore until I turned it off. on rebooting, I would hear a couple of loud beeps but the PC will not boot....


There are a couple thing youcould have been looking at. number one a virus(trojan) got into you machine.

Number two you mother board is starting to go.

Number three your video card located on the mother board is gouing bad.

Number four you hard drive is getting weak

The fan on a laptop always runs to keep the machine cool. Smaller spaces get hotter faster.

I think based on your decription it was a virus, make sure you protected. Back up all ou info just incase it is the hard frive is startig to fail.

You could test to see if hard drive is culprit by removing the drive. This is done by removing the access panel on bottom of laptop and slipping out the drive. Once out, try turning on laptop. It won't boot up, but you should get power light on.
I suspect you will not.
If so, problem is in power supply within laptop. Fixing requires a full diagnostic check of the power supply and battery charger. I highly recommend a trained technician for that.

It could also be the conncetion came loose, which can happen with IDE hard drives if the laptop gets moved around a lot. Remove the hard drive and take it to an electronics store to have it tested, or if you have a friend with an external enclosure (2.5" IDE interface, they cost between$10-20) you can hook it up to another computer via the USB port

I own a HP Pavilion ze4125. Today, for the first


it sounds like your hard drive is having issues. it may not be dead, but one of your boot files is corrupted. try starting the computer from your windows disk. and select the repair option. if you cant get any farther or get a read error your hard drive is dead.

I have a hp laptop at the time of boot it is displaying a message error 200: fixed hard disk failure 0 and it can't boot


Could be either a bad hard drive or the hard drive controller. best way is to download the hard drive test from the manufacturer of the hard drive and test it.

HP pavilion laptop will not boot windows...IDE device not found


You usually get that message when the hard drive has crashed.

Try removing the hard drive from the unit, then reseat it back into place.

Hopefully it was just dislodged a little bit.

Let me know what happens.
