    Abogalho,

    When the system boots up, press f8 (key) until you see the advanced boot menu, there should be "Repair your Computer", use that and there is a menu to pick, I highly recommend you start with System Restore, then Startup Repair.Try picking a restore before a recent software (this will actually work). If it doesn't, you might want to check with your BIOS and the information that came with the package

    If it still doesn't work, let me know.

Either the HDD controller is bad or the HDDs you used have bad sectors.HDD regenerator software alot of times will correct the bad sectors and then the OS will install correctly and function smoothly.

Can't Format


Hi,
Its very rare problem but its due to HDD ( Hard Disk Drive ) problems.

For getting rid of it you will need to perform Primary HDD test in BIOS setup and also try to toggle between HDD type from SATA to ATA or vice-versa in same BIOS.

I am sure you will get rid of your problem.

Plz rate me properly if i was helpful to u.

With Regards,

HP Pavilion laptop freezes daily and i force manual shutdown


It sound's like there could be a compatibility problem, maybe corrupt file's, or missing start up file's, have you tried doing a window's update, or doing a disc check on the hard drive, go to my computer right click the drive then go to propertie's, click on tool's then click check now for drive error's. if that do'es not work you may need to reformat back to the original xp os.

Cant install recovery disks after a hard drive reformat!


the recovery disk is designed to repair or restore a system to its previous factory condition and is not a full installation. the formating of your hdd would have erased all the data required for this process to be completed. you can try a recovery utility that may be able to help you at this link. the disk might not have been saved in an .iso format to tell the computer to run it before starting an OS. if this disk is recognized and runs on your system then you will need to attempt a recovery, which is unlikely since the drive has allready been formated many necessary system files may not be able to be restored. at this point a complete new install will be necessary.
Good Luck!

Driver problem


you need to follow these instructions:

0. Download the XP Sata driver from the support page and create the driver floppy, attached usb floppy drive to laptop: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=
en&cc=us&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=3375953&swItem=ob-51454-1&prod
NameId=3375995&swEnvOID=1093&swLang=8&taskId=135&mode=4&idx=1

1. Power up, hit F10 to enter setup
2. DISABLE SATA native mode
3. Follow the installation instructions in the supplied readme.

If you DO NOT disable native mode for the sata drive, you will end up going around in circles with the XP setup informing you there is no hdd in the laptop, even though you specifically installed sata drivers off the floppy.

Once you get past the "Hit enter to install Windows", you can trash all the partitions on the drive, and recreate one big partition for XP :)

***NOTE*** MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ALL OF YOUR DRIVERS FOR XP ON A CD AND READY TO INSTALL. YOU CAN DOWNLOAD THEM AT THE HP WEBSITE.
