Replaced motherboard &hard drive in hp pavilion, now it will not recognize reovery cd


By replacing the Hard drive you have removed the recovery partition with the operating system on it.
Did you make a backup of the Operating system to a set of CD's or just the Data?
If it was just the data you need a new operating system through HP Tech Support. The instructions are here

Replaced motherboard &hard drive in hp pavilion, now it will not recognize reovery cd


Replacing major hardware in a computer makes it a whole new computer. The motherboard is the operative part here that is causing your problem. When you replace a motherboard it becomes a new machine entirely. It won't recognize the recovery CD because it doesn't recognize your computer as the same machine it was loaded on. You will have to buy a new copy of windows to put on your computer.

Computer won't recognize external usb hard drive


try it on another computer if that dosent work you should
reformat your computer but first backup all your data by putting your another internal hardrive on your computer and move all your files you need to the empty hardrive and after that take the hardrive with all your stuff in it off the computer and then reformat the hardrive which the external hardrive does not work on and install a new operating system then put the other hardrive with all your stuff back on your computer and transfer your stuff into the hardrive with a operating system then try the external hardrive

OR
you can burn all your stuff into a CD or a DVD
OR
you can put all your stuff into FlashDrives and then after you reformat the hardrive with an operating system put your stuff back into the computer and after that the external hardrive should work

How do I remove the harddrive from the HP Slimline S3100n?


Shut down the power to your HP Slimline computer.

Remove any memory cards or other devices from the desktop.

Disconnect the power cord and peripheral devices from the computer.


Lay the computer flat on your work surface.

Remove the three screws on the rear of the computer cover with a Phillips screwdriver.


Slide the cover toward the back of the computer then lift it off the tower.

Set the cover aside.

Raise the wire latch in front of the hard drive mounting area.


Pull the cables straight out of the connections to disconnect them from the hard drive. Unscrew the retaining screw in the side of the mounting tray with a Phillips screwdriver.


Grab the tab on the hard drive tray and slide it back out of the mounting area. Remove the screws that secure the hard drive to the tray with a Phillips screwdriver.


There are four screws, one on each corner.

Slide the hard drive out of the tray.

G'day mate, have you tried installing the software? if not try to do so and that could help :) and it can also depend on your system and what the hard drive is specified to run on
