Installed new hard drive p105 s6064 now cd drive wont work dont have recovery discs


Dell recovery will not work in a Toshiba Laptop. Just make sure the boot order is set to CD/DVD driver first that will automatically start the CD/DVD driver when disc is loaded.

Black screen v6000 laptop "HELP Please"


It appears the hard disk has been wiped/formatted and does not have an operating system installed.
You need to get a Windows Vista installation CD and if the Windows label on the bottom of the laptop is still attached then this label has the product installation code.
Boot up with the Windows Vista installation CD to install the Vista operating software then you need to install the Presario device drivers.

You can download the device drivers from the Compaq/HP WEB support/download page. Make sure you select your model laptop and the Windows drivers you require and install them. Click on this link to download the drivers: -

Compaq presario v6000 computer does not detect hard drive storage


The hard disk may be faulty or it just needs reseating to make proper connection.
Reseat the hard drive and boot up your laptop. If it does not boot up then go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive.
If the BIOS deos not detect the hard drive then most likely it is faulty. In this case to get your laptop working again, replace the hard drive and install Windows on the new hard drive plus the Presario's device drivers and your programs.

Make sure the disc is readable. Try to copy the entire disk on another laptop/pc. If the copy runs fine, then it must me something else -- perhaps the HDD.

COMPAQ PRESARIO M2000 RECOVERY DISC WILL NOT LOAD ON NEW HARD DRIVE


The issue here to be quite frank is the hard drive needs the compaq image before the recovery disk can be loaded. This provents people from taking there compaq disk and getting wise and installing it on multiable computers what authors call piracy.

What you need to do is have compaq NOW HP send you out a IMAGE recovery disc usually when a hard drive crashes they send you out the hard drive with the IMAGE.

The other solution is purchasing windows 7 upgrade and going at it from there.

Thanks hope this helps please do not shoot the messenger and leave postive feedback and ratings.

Compaq Presario C300 Recoivery Disc 2 corrupt


Hi John.

F11 process is not working and you get a NTLDR missing when you turnon the notebook.

Steps to be performed:
1. Perform hard drive self test from BIOS.
2. If it is passed then use retail version of operating system disk to install XP or try using new recovery disks which nay cost you $15.00.

In your notebook model this issue appears if there is any issue with the hard drive.

Recover problem


This can happen if the Recovery Partition is corrupted or the Hard Drive is bad.
 First, I recommend you to check the Hard Drive using the Hard Drive test utility available in the BIOS by following the steps below :
Start or restart the notebook and start tapping the F10 key.
This will get you the BIOS Setup window.
In this. go to the Diagnostics or Tools tab where you can find the Hard Drive test utility.
Select using the Up/Down arrow keys and press enter to start the test.
Make sure that you complete the Full test which may take around 80 minutes to complete.
If the Test result is Pass, we can come to a conclusion that the issue is with the Recovery Partition which is corrupted.
You need to purchase the Recovery Disks for your Notebook in this situaiton.
Contact HP Chat Support to get the exact link to order the Recovery Disks for your Notebook.
However, if the Test Result is Fail, you need to take backup of the data in the Notebook and replace the Hard Drive with a new one.
Hope this helps...
