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...

1. Error: BOOTMGR is missing:
• The following error opens when attempting to start the PC:
??¢ If you recently installed an additional hard drive, turn off the computer and remove the drive before using the following steps:
??¢ Open HP System Recovery:
??¢ CAUTION: Do not perform a system recovery! Stop at the first recovery screen.
- Press the F11 key repeatedly while the computer is starting.
- If you have a recovery disc, turn on the PC and insert the first recovery disc into the drive. Use the disc to enter the system recovery.
??¢ Select Microsoft Startup Repair tool and wait for repair to find and fix errors. When finished, restart the computer; even if the startup repair tool finds errors but cannot fix them.
??¢ If the error message persists, open the recovery manager screen as was done in step 1.
??¢ At the recovery manager screen, press ALT + D.
??¢ Enter the following text at the command prompt: bootrec /rebuildbcd
??¢ If bootrec displays "Add installation to boot list?", press y .
??¢ After bootrec completes successfully, the computer displays "The operation completed successfully".
??¢ To close the command prompt, enter the following text: exit
??¢ At the Recovery Manager screen, select Microsoft Startup Repair tool (again) and wait for startup repair to find and fix errors. When finished, restart the computer.
??¢ The error should no longer open. If it does, perform a system recovery, making sure to backup important files.
??¢ If you removed a hard drive before using these steps, replace the drive. If the error occurs again, make sure the additional hard drive is not set as an active drive. Only the main bootable drive should be set as active.
