Question about HP Compaq Presario v3000z Notebook
Use xp os disk and use repair os ...
boot from xp os disk choose install new NOT repair and system will examine and detect that an os already exists and give options continue install new,repair or quit...at this point choose repair..
install new and repair both take around about the same time to complete only repair leaves existing files or downloads previously saved intact and available.also when you install new often you need to find certain software/drivers as windows doesnt install by default (wireless,blutooth,sometimes modem,often vga.) I have my device drivers on a cd for whenever if ever I may need.
once your up and running install a recovery suite that can recover from startup.if you cant find one or dont know of one send ur email and I'll send you the one I use.
then next time you have a software issue you just hit f11 at start and entire hard drive is repaired/recovered in about 5 or 6 min.

SOURCE: recover problem
This can happen if the Recovery Partition is corrupted or the Hard Drive is bad.
First, I recommend you to check the Hard Drive using the Hard Drive test utility available in the BIOS by following the steps below :
Start or restart the notebook and start tapping the F10 key.
This will get you the BIOS Setup window.
In this. go to the Diagnostics or Tools tab where you can find the Hard Drive test utility.
Select using the Up/Down arrow keys and press enter to start the test.
Make sure that you complete the Full test which may take around 80 minutes to complete.
If the Test result is Pass, we can come to a conclusion that the issue is with the Recovery Partition which is corrupted.
You need to purchase the Recovery Disks for your Notebook in this situaiton.
Contact HP Chat Support to get the exact link to order the Recovery Disks for your Notebook.
However, if the Test Result is Fail, you need to take backup of the data in the Notebook and replace the Hard Drive with a new one.
Hope this helps...
