HP DV8000t Hard Drive Failed

Viewed the old hard drive using an enclosure. Could not get any info from the C:/ format, but have 5 GB showing on F:/ recovery. Also, created recovery disk when I first received this computer. When I buy the hard drive to replace the bad one, how do I get the operating system and stuff on the new hard drive? Do I just pop the new hard drive in and put the recovery disk in next?

Just replace the old one and put in your restore disc and it should ask if you want to boot from the cd and that will take care of it

Hi sir l have hp laptop notebook pc it can not start up it says recovery

This is either a corrupted windows install meaning it is software related, or it is a failed hard drive. It is 99% of the time a bad hard drive. You can purchase a new hard drive and install windows on it if you have the installation cd. If you need data recovered you can hook up the old hard drive via USB with a hard drive enclosure. If data isn't viewable via USB there are services to send the hard drive to such as Gilware. That process can cost $500 to $3009 however

How to change a pc hardrive

It is actually pretty simple to do. First of all, make sure you have a backup.
1. Open you computer case. You will likely have to open both sides, unless you have a hard drive enclosure, so check your computer manual on how to do so.2. Pull out the power and SATA cables (will be red and thin). You will need them when you install the new hard drive.3. Unscrew the hard drive. If it is in a hard drive enclosure, it will likely be held by thumbscrews. Unscrew the thumbscrews holding the enclosure to the case and then unscrew the hard drive.4. Place the new hard drive into the computer or enclosure and screw in. If in an enclosure, screw the drive into that and then enclosure back into the computer.5. Plug in the cables that you took out of the old hard drive.6. Close the case, install operating system if it was replacing the hard drive that had it, and you should be good to go.
This video should help if you are confused:
Here is a video that will show you how to replace your hard drive:

I only have a 4 GB Hard Drive. I need more space.


There will be more works to install an internal hard drive. You need to back up your data in the old drive, install the operating system in new drive, and copy back your data. I will think buying an external hard drive will be better options (or an usb hard drive enclosure and hard drive buying separately).

I have a hp pavilion dv 1659 us (dv 1000) the sata drive goes bad

It will recognize the new drive if you were able to "migrate" your data from the old drive. If not, you can clean install by booting from an optical drive (changing your boot order at start-up) and using a new OS disk or your recovery disks. You might be able to perform a remote partition & format and install from one drive to the other with USB external enclosures for each drive and another computer (depending on the 100G drive's condition). I hope this helps.

Installing windows on acer notebook help

you cannot usually switch installed operating systems from computer to computer like that and still expect windows to boot, but with windows 98 it *might* work.

to install windows 98 on the usb drive, insert and boot from the windows 98 disk like you were to install it on that computer , and then, it should, before it formats any drives, give you a choice of what drive to format.

Hi,how can I trasfer information and photos from my broken hp dv9000 hard drive to a hp dv6000 loptop,they have diferent hard drive

You can transfer that hard drive to another, if you have accessories to put it on another laptop.
Here's what you do:
1. Use HDD Enclosure 2.5 inches or Portable USB 2.5 inches Device to easily plug it on your laptop via USB.

Put the Hard Drive inside Portable Enclosure.
Then plug it into your laptop & copy all your files.
Good luck!

If i am helpful please rate me.
Thank you.

Hard drive upgrade

It has to have SATA Hard Drive Connector DFHS22FR685, if you have this then I would try to format the hard drive to what your operating system is using, either NFTS or FAT32. The drive may not be properly formated for your system.
