Question about HP Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Have Pavilion s3440 returned from repair with new HD.(also processor and motherboard).. C partition 48.8 G has only 14.2 G free. Having divested all unused progs, I still have only 19G free. My own (recovered from external disc) only about 8G. Can't seem to access other to clear. Worried that disc may be a previously used disc with ? whatever ? on. How can I clear drive? My own recovery discs don't appear to work with new config of drive.

Reformat partition hard drive


To return your HD to the factory settings do a full system recovery using the recovery disks (CD or DVDs) you made when you first had the computer. This will return the whole computer to its as-shipped state: you will lose all your data and any software that you have installed. This will retain/re-install the original partition structure on your hard disk. To do this process you may also use the recovery partition on the hard disk.

To completely reformat the hard disk, in which case you will lose everything on it
press the start button at the bottom left of screen,
R-click on computer, and select manage. The computer management window will open. From the left pane click on disk management under 'storage'. A new pane will open, with information on the different disks in your computer. Select the disk on which the partition to be formatted is located. R-click on the partition to be formatted, and choose format, and ten work through the format wizard. (see http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/create-format-hard-disk-partition#create-format-hard-disk-partition=windows-7)
When you R-click on the partition other options will appear will appear as well as format, choose the appropriate option to create a new partition, merge, etc, By successively working your working your way through the partitions you may format/merge some while retaining others.

The screen is black on my hp pavilion laptop


if the system is running and hard drive is operating is is possible that the Video Card that is part of the Motherboard is Bad. THis is because both the laptop screen and external monitor are black.
You can take the laptop to a local shop but often the cost of repair is greater than the cost to replace.
if a shop will evaluate for free go there.
best case you have a bad stick of ram, worst case processor or Video section of mother board is bad. many other possibilities could be the cause.

The serial is a one use only item - if you need to reinstall the program you must phone Avanquest , explain the situation and they will give you another key for free.

When i try to start system it will no boot up. amber hd light stays on. i opened up hd and replaced board. mother board fairly new. replaced it with rebuilt one. what should i try next?


1) Why was the motherboard replaced?

2) If this is in reference to an HP Pavilion Media Center M1070n, it uses an Intel Pentium 4 Model 520 (2.8GHz) processor.

Did you make sure you plugged the 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable, into the motherboard?
This is power for a Pentium 4 processor, and on up.

This is HP Support, and the Motherboard Specifications page, for the HP Pavilion Media Center M1070N,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00208497&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=426501

Scrolling down the page is an illustration, and a photo of the motherboard.

Below the Processor socket is the Northbridge chip.
(The Northbridge chip, and the Southbridge chip are the motherboard chipset)

Intel i915P MCH

In the motherboard photo, and installed in your computer, the Northbridge chip has an aluminum heatsink sitting on top of it. (Has fins on top of the heatsink)

Going across to the Left, from the top left corner of the heatsink, is a square connector with 4 socket holes.
The female connector on the motherboard, for the 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable.

4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atx12v4

Two Yellow 12 Volt wires, two Black Ground wires.
Let's start with this, and go from there.

I am looking to buy a motherboad for hp pavilion part number 459565-001


Let's start off the week talking about Apple laptop motherboards! However, there is some good news for you mac user's but unfortunately some bad news about the notebook if your A1181 model contains the 820-1889-A logic board using the Intel Penryn setup.
The good news is Apple's new line of MacBook and MacBook Pro's come with the latest Penryn Intel Core 2 Duo processor, standard larger hard drives and most models already come with 2GB of memory standard out of the box. The bad news is that they do have a tendency to breakdown in the strangest ways, which in return requires you to repair or replace the laptop motherboard.
I receive a decent amount of e-mails about apple motherboards mostly about how the biggest issue seems to be that people are having a hard time figuring out where to even begin due to the lack of information provided by Apple and even on the internet.
The 820-1889-A PC main board do share a few very nice features - first and foremost it's made and used only for 2.1GHz to 2.5GHz (Penryn) CPU chipsets. All the logicboards have four wall connectors - Now they come standard with 667MHz memory support - You will find that this specific part number has one (8W) FireWire 400 port and two USB 2.0 ports (which come standard in the whole A1181 series).
13.3" White Using a 2.1GHz Intel Core 2 Duo.
The 13.3" and 15.4" White / Black with a Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4GHz.
Finally all 15.4" and 17" LCD models which have the 2.5GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor.

HELP WITH CONFIGURING A NEW OPERATING SYSTEM?


Hi,

I have encountered the same problem with yours. But luckily i was able to manage to solve the problem. What i did was, i remove my Hard Drive and install in another pc (working pc) and made it as a slave. After that, i boot the pc then go to My Computer folder, i use the tool Scandisk and set it on automatically fix errors.

After this procedure, i remove the HD and install it back to where it was originally installed. Then I install new OS and it works..

I doubt that it was the virus who made my HD go wrong.

hope this helps.
