Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
I HAVE A NEW LAPTOP - HP Pavilion dv4-1135ee Entertainment Notebook PC -
THE HARD DISK SIZE IS 250 GIGA WITH 2 PARTITIONS
C/ 240 GIGA WITH WINDOWS VISTA HOME PREMIUM 32-BIT WITH SP1 INSTALLED.
D/ 10 GIGA A RECOVERY PARTITION
AS SOON AS I BOUGHT IT I MADE THE 2 DVD RECOVERY RECOMMENDED
NOW THE PROBLEM.................................
AS I DO NOT LIKE TO KEEP ME DATA IN THE SAME PARATION THAT CONTAINS WORKING SYSTEM - WINDOWS VISTA HOME PREMIUM 32-BIT WITH SP1 , I USED DISK MANAGEMENT TO SHRINK DRIVE C TO GET 100 GIGA OUT OF IT
SO I CAN USE THE TO CREATE A NEW PARTATION CALLED F:
THE OPERATION DONE
I COULD SEE IT IN DISK MANAMENT AND SHOWEN WHIN I OPEN MY COMPUTER
SO FAR SO GOOD!
I MOVED MY FILES AND PUT THEN IN THE NEW DRIVE F
AND LIFT C WITH 150 GIGA
BUT AFTER 3 DAYS
I PUSHED RESCAN FROM TOP TASKBAR INCLUDED IN DISK MANAGEMENT
SUDDENLY THE NEW CREATED DRIVE DISSAPPERED FROM MY COMPUTER!!
BUT STILL EXCIST AND SHOWEN WHEN I OPEN DISK MANAGEMENT BUT I COULD NOT EDIT IT OR EVEN RENAME IT!!
AND WHEN I TRIED TO DO ANY ACTION EVEN TO FORMATE IT
AMESSAGE APPERED SAYING
(( The operation failed to complete because the Disk Management console
view is not up-to-date. Refresh the view by using the refresh task. If
the problem persists close the Disk Management console, then restart
Disk Management or restart the computer ))
AS THE DATA I STORED IN DRIVE F
WHICH I CAN NOT SEE IN MY COMPUTER
I TRIED TO USE A PARTITION MAGIC TO CHANGE DRIVES
THE DRIVE ALSO APPERED IN PARTATION MAGIC BUT WHEN I TRIED TO CHANGE ANY STATUS OF IT
AMESSAGE APPERED SAYING:-
File system type
Paragon Partition Manager has discovered problems with this partition. It must have been caused by an incorrect geometry. In order to resolve the issue, please collect LOG-files and send them to our Support Team
THE ONLY ACTION ACCEPTED WAS TO FORMAT IT
I DID SO HOPING TO RECOVER DATA AFTER FORMATING!
THE OPERATION DONE
AND THE PARTITION OPTIONS APPERED AGAIN IN DISK MANAGEMENT
BUT THE DRIVE DID NOT APPER WHEN I OPENED MY COMPUTER!!
I DECIDED TO MEARGE BACK THE DRIVE F WITH C AS A FINAL STEP TO SEE DRIVE C WITH THE SAME SIZE BEFORE 240 GIGA
PARTITION MAGIC REFUSED TO APPLY AS C IS AN OPERATION SYSTEM AND OFERED TO APPLY WITH FIRST RESTART
I ACCEPTED AND MADE RESTART
IT DID SOME STEPS AND I WAITED
TO RESTART AGAIN
THE ONLY THING I CAN SEE IS HP IN THE CENTER OF THE SCREEN AND AT THE LEFT BOTTOM THE NORMAL MESSAGE AT STARTUP SAYING:
PRESS ESC KEY TO OPEN START MENU
AND NOTHING DONE AFTER THAT!!
I PUT RECOVERY DVD 1 TO RECOVER
BUT IT DID NOT FEEL THE DVD DRIVE EITHER THE HARDDISK!!
I PUSHED F11 TO RECOVER BUT NO CHANGE HAPPENED!!
I PUSHED F10 TO CHANGE BIOS SETTING
A MESSAGE APPEARS SAYING
BIOS SETTING BUT NOTHING AFTER EVEN I WAITED HOURS!
SORRY FOR ALL DETAILS , JUST TO GIVE ANY HELPFUL WORD
NOW MY QUESTION:-
IS THE PROBLEM CONCRNNING BIOS OR HARDDISK
WHAT I HAVE DONE WRONGE?
AND WHAT CAN YOUR UNDERSTAND FROM ALL THE STORY I TOLD
PLEASE HELP ME
The reason why this happen is that by mistake u have damage the MBR of the new partion u have created. the only way to fix the system is to format the entire system (entire harddrive) using DM thats the only way to fix it.
