Trouble installing xp on a hp pavilion t3000

Have tried to make a clean install of xp on my brothers hp pavilion t3000. it used to have a "recovery partition" with preinstalled xp on it. booted from cd and partitioned and formatted the hd.

all went well with copying of files to the hd, but after the computer restarted to start install it halted with a blue screen saying that either the hd was infected with virus or that a newly installed hd was malfunctioning.

i deleted all old partitions on the hd including the recovery partition. could it be that maybe parts of the old mbr is still intact and "remembers" that there should be a recovery partition?

Use the Windows Xp CD to format the hhd twice.
install the OS from the CD without partition.
you can always partition the hhd later.

I have a Pavilion ze200 laptop. I purchased a pc clean program and it deleted everything off my hard drive. I have the disc to restore the operating ststem and the drive recovery but when i try to install...


The only time I ever got in trouble with a computer involved deleting files.

The cleaner program is too aggressive if it deletes files that windows needs. dont use it

The install for windows expects an empty formatted drive to install windows. The program you used has changed the hard drive in a bad way.

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.

I have a HP A6667c Desktop. Would I be able to do a complete HD format and install XP? I was told that drivers might not be available.


Hi,
According to HP the Pavilion A667 desktop PC does not support the XP operating system.
You can however try to install XP to see what happens, if you do decide to try and install XP make sure you make or have at least got a recovery disk for Vista before you install XP.


Good luck.

Default administrator on xp home ed sp1 preloaded on HPA305W hp system


Default after installing XP with HP Recovery CD's (or from hard disk) the administrator account is not password protected. Maybe a password was asked during installation or first-time login?

You can always redo the recovery.

Is there a website where i can download a recovery hp pavilion zv5000 disk


If you have a Windows Xp CD and your laptop has the serial no. then
1. Insert the CD in CD-Rom and follow the instruction to install the Windows XP.
2. Once you installed the XP, try to get connect with internet, most of the time the LAN drivers installed, plug the Ethernet wire with your computer go to the browser.
3. type www.hp.com
4. Click Support & Drivers
5. Select Download Drivers and type your product no.
6. Install each component Sound, VGA, Wireless from the list.

This is the simple way to recover your computer without recovery CD. for this you dont have to be technical but smart to choose the steps. Good Luck. Amir

After using recovery disc for windows xp there is no sound


You need to update the sound drivers, Find out what sound card you are using and search the web for the drivers by either typing your motherboard model or your computer model. Use search functions to help you find what you are looking for. I hope this helps. You might want to provide more info on the devices attached to your motherboard. Use device manager for more info.
