Re: hp dv1000 media card
Remove the media card while booting.
If there is no media in the card reader, press F8 after the laptop beeps during boot and this should give you a Safe Mode boot screen, choose Safe Mode and then your default OS listed. After you get your desktop, restart the laptop.
If when you press F8 you get a boot from what screen, choose your hard drive and then immediately press F8 again to get the Safe Mode boot screen.
You need to either remove the flash media or use Safe Mode and then restart to reset the Boot Ini information script.
Let me know if this works for you or not, as we may need to take another measure.

Overheating is more likely to cause a shutdown. You need to do some troubleshooting. Remove all USB attached devices. Roll back system with System Restore under Safe Mode (press F8 during boot and choose Safe Mode). For Win 7 - Start > Start > Search type System Restore. For XP - Is Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Restore. Now choose a date prior to problem starting. You may have to try a few dates.
Uninstall last program(s) that was installed, again in safe mode.
Disable startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig. In Startup tab, uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running. This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when only you initiate. In fact, in your case uncheck all. TEST.

Hi, You are correct HP do not provide the recovery disks for this Media Center anymore.
I've just about searched the net for anyone who may have recovery CD's for sale but no no avail.
If you can still get into the operating system use HP Backup and Recovery Manager, its quick and user-friendly. To run,
simply go to All Programs > HP Backup & Recovery > HP Backup
and Recovery Manager.
With HP Backup & Recovery Manager, file restoration is easy. To
recover a deleted file, simply use the Restore Wizard.
For a full
system restoration, press the F11 key during boot up and then select
"Recover PC" from the menu if there is a recovery partition available (sometimes you have to hold down Ctrl and hit the F11 key on boot up)
Other than that you may have to purchase a Windows XP or Windows XP Media Center installation CD from a reputable store like PC World for example.
In order to format and install operating system again you need a dos bootable floppy or cd to format.... Best solution is that try windows xp or windows vista bootable cd ,it will format your hardd drive and also will install the operating system.... Good Luck. ------------------------------------------- Please let me know your feed-back.
