How do I reinstall the Operating System on my computer? Select models, with Microsoft Windows, have the ability to have theOperating System reinstalled from a hidden partition built into the computer.

  3. If you are prompted with a Microsoft Windows boot screen, press the Enter key.
  4. After the system recovery application has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the Operating System.
If the ability to reinstall from the previous method is not available orfails, recovery of the Operating System will need to be from Recovery Media. Ifyou do not have a set of Recovery Media, you may purchase the set onlinefrom the manufacturer. Note: If your computer does not havean internal optical disc drive, an external optical disc drive will be requiredin order to recover the Operating System using Recovery Media.
  1. Restart the computer.
  2. When the omputer logo appears on the screen, press the F12 key repeatedly to enter the computer's Boot Menu.
  3. Press the CD-ROM drive eject button and insert the disc labeled System CD.

  7. When prompted for the Recovery CD, remove the System CD and insert the Recovery CD.

What personal media drive will fit the HP m 1190n media bay. Will any fit or are they part number specific? Thank you


Not sure what you mean by personal media player.

1) If its an Ipod or any MP3 player, you should be able to connect any via a USB cable, or directly plugged in.

2) if you mean CD or DVD drive/player like the one that came with it, they're generic, any with the correct interface (IDE or SATA) Though I think SATA in this case.

Here's a URL with the full specification of your system to help:-

If you mean the "personal media bay" listed here, I think were back to a generice CD/DVD drive.

Media Drive not detected


The device may be looking for a certain drive letter. Remove all other "removable" devices. Go to the device manager and remove the personal drive, reboot the computer and try installing the personal drive again.

HP Media Centre PC 7250 can I add a hard drive?


Here's a step by step guide for that HP 7250 model on HP's website about how to replace, or remove/add the Primary and Secondary Hard Drives (which pictures that help).

If your computer did not come with a second hard drive, you can install a second hard drive that you attach to the bottom of the inside of the computer tower.

Hp media center - hard disc failure iminent


I am sure that noone wants to tel you thins but when you go the Hard disk failer iminent that was so you woudl shut it down and transfer everything onto another disk. Once it crashes, such as your has, you cannot recover the data w/o very expensive equiptment or costly contracting out the HD for data recover.      About the only thing that you can do now is replace the hard drive, download a   recovery disk from HP,if one is available, for your model, If you have not already made one, and reinstall the software from the disk.

Hp pavilion m7330n motherboard issue


The system in question requires motherboard model ms-7184 and can be found on ebay for less than $100.  If your repair guy used a different motherboard you will get the issues described and need to reinstall the OS.  It is impracticle to put any more than $200 in most desktop computers more than 2 years old, your repair guy should have advised you of this straight off.  Find a new person to take your equipment.

It sounds like your external hard drive went belly up unfortunately. Unless you backed up your files to another location (remember, backing up means having your files on 2 or more locations, not just "keeping them" on an external drive).
