Please help how to format pavilion dv4000 because effected virus. I hope you will help me, thank you. Paul


Before formatting or reinstalling windows try downloading ESET smart security 30 day trial and uninstalling your current antivirus.
http://www.eset.com/.
If you can install it do it. This will surely clean up your computer, if you see everything is fine then there will be no need to reinstall windows.
Remember that a complete windows install will make you loose everything!
From the Windows XP desktop, click Start , All Programs , and then one of the following options:
The following options are for HP computers. Compaq computers will have similar options (for example, Compaq Tools).
1. HP Tools , and then HP PC System Recovery .
2.Hewlett-Packard , hp pavilion pc tools , and hp pc system recovery .
3.PC Help & Tools , and then HP PC System Recovery .
should be ok.

How can I find out if my HP Pavilion dv4000 has a DVD burner?


The simple way is to insert an empty disk and try burning the disk with some content. If it burns, that means you have a dvd burner fixed with ur device. Another way which is comparitively complicated is to check the device in the device manager. Right click on My Computer and click on Manage on that. You will get another window opened
In the left navigation pane, you will see device manager. click on that and see your DVD Drive status. If its given as DVD+ RW then you have dvd burner installed in ur system.

HP DV4000 Series not detecting newly installed DVD±RW LightScribe


The type of CD/DVD recorder is suppose to be automatically detected by your Plug N Play portion of your BIOS. Reboot and press the "F" key combination that will bring up the boot process as opposed to the CMOS Settings. See if the correct DVD model shows up as one of your boot electives. You may be able to change it in that window. If not then reboot to BIOS and change it there.
