For all of you that are havin problem wit media test type failre, there's a website posted to help deal wit this kind of problem. I have typed in Google media test type failure, and I have gotten two websites with some good explaination to this problem. Here's the two website I have run across www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000706.htm and www.nocrash.com/ncbbs/msgs/3247.shtml. They explain the issue as having to be a problem wit incorrect Bios configuration or a bad hard drive. I'm thinkin this could also be triggerd by incorrect configuration of the jumper. Meaning, the CD-ROM nor the Hard Drive isn't setup. I somehow, found that if u select both to Cable Select on seperate ide cable. It won't trigger this msg. But if you're runnin' it off a single cable. The first have to be set to Master while the last one set to Cable Select.

You removed the original harddrive... Did you think that magically the computer would have your operating system on it without the original harddrive in place?

The error is telling you that there is no Operating system, The network card would be the last spot the Bios would check for a bootable link.

Put the old harrdrive back in before you hurt it more and bring the laptop and new drive to a professional to have the upgrade performed properly.

SOURCE: windows dont come up.

I had this happen to me before with an IBM laptop. I bought a new hard drive, reinstalled a fresh OS, and had no more problems after that. I also went right to ibm website and did all the updates, as well as all the microsoft updates. So my same problem as your ended up being a bad hard drive. maybe check into that?.

Tip

Looking for the longest battery life laptop ?


We’ve yet to see a Windows laptop with battery life longer than 5~7 hours, unless we add an extended battery to the system. But when hpand dell launched its new series of laptops last week, one big push wasfor longer battery life.

When you purchase your notebook, charge the battery to 100 percent,discharge it completely, and then fully charge it to 100 percent againto help the battery remember exactly how much electrical charge it canhold. From then on, you’ll never need to completely discharge the laptop battery again, but always make sure when charging it that you let it reach 100 percent. DeHoop told us to “remember to plug in the laptop AC adapter(or dock/port replicator) whenever you get a chance. Most notebookswill recharge quickly.” Salinas had another tip for your batteries:“Keep them cool. Exposure to high temperatures can be a battery’s worstenemy,” he said

Hope the list can give you some help when you purchase a laptop or battery:

Have an HP Pavilion ze4935wm laptop. Want to upgrade to higher GB and RPM. What is the highest I can go with this type of laptop?


This is an older laptop that uses a PATA (sometime called EIDE or ATA-100) drive.
The largest drives commonly available in PATA type for laptops are 320GB, at 5400 RPM.
There are bigger and faster laptop drives, but they will not work with that laptop since the bigger drives require a SATA interface.
PATA drives are more expensive than their SATA equivalents, it might be better to invest your upgrade dollars into a newer laptop.

Can I replace orig hp ze1115 20GB hd w/60GB hd?


No the bios should be able to read the drive fine. The problem could be with the computer's motherboard. You should check to see if the original drive and new drive is detected in another system. Or you can try accessing them via an external casing / adapter.

Where can I buy a lower price HP PAVILION DV8000


It's much better to buy the battery from the manufacturer's website. The transaction is a lot safer and reliable. Take there are two categories of battery the ORIGINAL and REPLACEMENT. Normally the highe mAh capacity has the longer battery life. The price of REPLACEMENT batteries are much lower than the ORIGINAL batteries.

You can view the product on this site:
