Replacing the HDD is the easy part, replacing the software, if you don't have the Factory Recovery DVD is another story. You mat be able to obtain a Factory Recovery DVD from HP, for a price. Your HDD is a 2.5 SATA 640GB 5400rpm, or so the specs say, this hardware info reads differently: . I would suggest you remove the HDD "Google" the HDD part number. This is a list from a Google search:,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_qf.&fp=a555b2b512c68df5&biw=1138&bih=626

Sounds like a new blank Hard Drive, erased Hard drive or a faulty hard drive. If hard drives not faulty need to restore the original drives contents from a back up made previously on an external drive or DVD's. If you do not have the back up, then you need to load the original OS using an original restore CD / DVD's and then load all the correct and required drivers from the Site for that model PC and the OS (XP. VISTA. WIN 7 etc) you are using.

Loss my recovery softwear for hp pavilion dm 1

This is from the HP site:
HP recovery discs can be used to return a computer's software configuration to its original condition. HP provides a recovery solution on the hard drive, but it is still a good idea to keep recovery discs stored in a safe place in the event of a hard drive failure. Use the sections in this document to obtain a recovery solution that works best for you.note.pngNOTE:HP computers designed for commercial use, such as Workstations or Pro series, use "Operating System" or "HP Restore Plus" DVDs. To order these types of discs, go to the HP Replacement Part Store . Recovering your computer without recovery discsYou may not need recovery discs to recover the software on your computer. HP provides a recovery solution on a separate area of the hard drive. If the hard drive is still functional, you can still perform an HP system recovery from the hard drive as long as the recovery information has not been destroyed or corrupted.To do a software recovery from the hard drive, turn on the computer and repeatedly press the F11 key until "Windows is loading files..." displays on the screen. If your computer originally came with Windows XP or earlier, press F10 to enter recovery instead of F11.
If you are simply trying to restore the computer to factory install, you may not need the recovery discs.
If you have suffered a hard drive failure, then there are a couple of options on their website, just ensure you have the exact model number of the computer.

My brother laptop Compaq Presario CQ-42 after 3 month used , now appears " Boot Device not found Please install an operating system on your hard disk Hardisk - (3F0) " F2 System...

Fundamentally, it means that the hard drive or hard drive controller has malfunctioned. I'm assuming this is running Vista or Wndows 7 and that the hard drive is indeed a Sata drive?

(If it were running XP, the failure to deterct the hard drive could be caused by there not being a Sata driver installed, however, on Vista or 7, this should not be the case, UNLESS you changed the OS from what was installed originally?)

I would try to prove this by testing the laptop with another working sata hard drive and if that one is recognised in the Bios, then it comes back to your original hard drive being faulty. If this IS the case, then as its 3 months old and still under warranty, I'd take it back without tampering with it any further

This means that your hard disk has crashed and is damaged. You might need to replace it. I recommend taking your laptop to your local Computer store and letting a qualifiad technition take a look. The'll back up your stuff and put it on a new drive for you.

SMART failure predicted on hard disk 0:

There is a big problem with newer conponents and Win XP versions prior to SP2. Especially with newer motherboards.

You have to make a bootable SP2 disk if you don't already have one. To do this use the slipstream proceedure specified on the Ms website. Many other websites describe the process with easier language.

Slipstreaming is a common practice now. Essentially, you copy your original install disk to the c: drive then download SP2 to C: drive then download the slipstream utility from MS. Running the slipstream utility then inserts the proper drivers (ide and HD drivers too) into the licensed copy you have. You then create a bootable disk from the slipstreamed files you have.

This approach is resolving alot of blue STOP errors and SMART errors.

ALSO, you want to make sure you are installing any drivers provided by the MB manufacturer AND Drive maker.

Good Luck

I have a HP Pavilion dv8000 laptop and purchase a Seagate 80GB 5400/8MB 2.5 Mobile PATA HD to replace the original one. I have reinstalled in exactly the way the original was installed. When I power on the...

You removed the original harddrive... Did you think that magically the computer would have your operating system on it without the original harddrive in place?

The error is telling you that there is no Operating system, The network card would be the last spot the Bios would check for a bootable link.

Put the old harrdrive back in before you hurt it more and bring the laptop and new drive to a professional to have the upgrade performed properly.
