Question about HP Pavilion dv2000t Notebook

1 Answer

Installing a new hard drive in an HP Pavilion dv2000.

I do not have a recovery and applications/drivers DVD, and have been unable to create backup and restore DVDs. I have the product key for Windows Vista Home Premium OEMAct on the back of laptop. I am wanting to install a Seagate 320GB 7200/16MB 2.5" mobile SATA HD. I also have the USB 2.0 to SATA cabling and power though the system has yet to recognize the new drive. I am in unfamiliar territory. Any assitance would be appreciated.

    BillW50.... "Thank You"... You were right on target. While it took me a while and several attempts to "connect-the-dots", it worked perfectly, no loss of data, and a better performing laptop in the end. Your input was greatly appreciated.

On Seagate's website, they should have a drive transfer software to transfer everything over to a new drive. There are commercial drive clone applications too, like Paragon Drive Copy which you can find with Google.

My system just crashed adn I am trying to restore with the self created backup disks. I have been googling this quite a bit and from what i am seeing I may need to order new backup disks or my hard drive...


XP or Vista?
Common crashes are from bad memory, then the resotre won't work either.
Download microsoft Diagnostics and recovery tools set DART and test the memory first.
If memory is good, then make sure it sin't the DVD drive. Swap the drive with someone elses or get an external DVD drive.
If this fails, purchase the resotre disks. (Hate to get restore disks and find out you didn't need them)

I have an Acer Aspire 5720, ive had it for a year now and it is starting to slow down. I have lost the booklet to it and i need to do a master reset on it. Ive already backed everything up im just finding...


This was taken straight out of the manual for your model, which can be found here.

Acer eRecovery Management
Acer eRecovery Management is a tool to quickly backup and restore the system.
You can create and save a backup of the current system configuration to hard
disk, CD or DVD. You can also backup/restore the factory default image, and
reinstall applications and drivers.

Acer eRecovery Management consists of the following functions:

1 Create backup
2 Burn backup disc
3 Restore and recovery

This chapter will guide you through each process.
Note: This feature is only available on certain models. For systems
that do not have a built-in optical disc burner, plug in an external
optical disc burner before entering Acer eRecovery Management
for optical disc-related tasks.

When using Acer eRecovery Management, you may be prompted to enter the
Empowering Technology password to proceed. The Empowering Technology
password is set using the Empowering Technology toolbar or when first running
Acer eLock Management or Acer eRecovery Management.

Create backup

You can easily create full and fast (incremental) backup images of your system
configuration to hard disk from the main Acer eRecovery Management screen.
Note: Fast (incremental) Backup is only available after a Full
Backup is made.

1 Press <Alt> + <F10> or select Acer eRecovery Management from the
Empowering Technology toolbar to start Acer eRecovery Management.
2 In the Acer eRecovery Management window, select the type of backup you
want to create using Full or Fast.
3 Follow the instructions on screen to complete the process.

English
Burn backup disc
Using the Burn Disc page of Acer eRecovery Management, you can burn the
factory default image, a user backup image, the current system configuration,
or an application backup image to CD or DVD.
1 Press <Alt> + <F10> or select Acer eRecovery Management from the
Empowering Technology toolbar to start Acer eRecovery Management.
2 Switch to the Burn Disc page by selecting the Burn Disc button.
3 Select the type of backup (factory default, user, current system,
application) you would like to burn to disc. Choosing to burn a user backup
will burn your most recently created backup image to disc.
4 Follow the instructions on screen to complete the process.
Note: Create a factory default image when you want to burn a
bootable disc that contains your computer's entire operating
system as it was delivered to you from the factory. If you wish to
have a disc that will allow you to browse the contents and install
selected drivers and applications, create an application backup
image instead — this disc will not be bootable.

Restore and recovery

The restore and recovery features allow you to restore or recover the system
from a factory default image, from a user created image, or from previously
created CD and DVD backups. You can also reinstall applications and drivers for
your Acer system.
1 Press <Alt> + <F10> or select Acer eRecovery Management from the
Empowering Technology toolbar to start Acer eRecovery Management.
2 Switch to the restore and recovery page by selecting the Restore button.
3 Select the backup point you would like to restore from. You can also
choose to recover the system from a factory default image, recover from a
previously created CD/DVD or reinstall applications and drivers.
4 Follow the instructions on screen to complete the process.

XP on HP Pavilion dv2000


yes

because it's using an AHCI  SATA driver

there 2 ways to install XP on your laptop

  1. If you own an external floppy disk. You can insert the driver before the installation begin. the setup will ask you to insert third party driver by pressing F6 at the first of installation. Press F6 then insert your SATA driver. choose it. then setup will detect your hdd. you can download the SATA driver form here:http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/Other-DRIVERS-TOOLS/Others/HP-Pavilion-dv2054ea-SATA-Driver-550.shtml
  2. It's very hard to find an external floppy drive today, unless if you are an OEM or retailler. second way is you can insert the driver to XP installation CD, but it's very complicated. Or you can download a XP installation CD with sata driver here:http://fenopy.com/torrent/Windows_xp_sp3_5512_cdr_october_2008_with__sata_raid_/MTU2MTEzMA==/index.html
