Question about HP Pavilion dv4000 Notebook

1 Answer

Start up error

When i restart my notebook it sometimes says "disk error" and sometimes brings me to a list of possible retstart solutions that dont lead anywhere. A message reads " soorry for the inconvenience.... if u powered off in emergency to save files, choose line that says restart with same configs. Otherwise choose line that says start as normal" they both just lead in a cycle back to that message.?

Hi, My laptop taking so much time to switch on and it became very slow. Please tell me the soluiton for it.

Sometimes slow booting of computers and Laptops are caused by viruses and spywares. Also, a High temperatured Processor makes a computer slow.
Here are some solutions you might want to try.
  1. If you have a installed antivirus in your computer, i suggest you update your Antivirus and then Start scanning your computer for possible viruses and spywares.
  2. If viruses and Spywares are not the problem, maybe your Processor is feeling to much heat. I suggest you use Laptop Coolers like this one. heifentrixx_11.jpg
  3. This will help you cool down you Processor and Laptop.
Hope my solution will help. Thanks for using Fixya!

I have an HP DV9627CL and the second HD has disappeared

check to see if the drive letter is assigned in computer management. to do this simply go to start, right click on computer(windows 7/vista) my computer(windows xp/2000) and select manage. on the next screen you will have a list of possible commands. the one we are looking for is disk management. click on disk management. after a few seconds you should see a list of your drives. if you come up with an error such as a read error, your hard rive in question will need to be replaced as it has partition problems. i say replaced because once you get any error in this utility your hardrive is on its last legs. im not saying this is your problem but if you get an error then this is your problem. it can be fixed with a partitioning program but eventually the harddrive will fail anyway; bringing you back to here ...... if no errors you will have disk 0 and disk 1. depending on which disk it is....the one without a drive letter assigned to can right click on the drive 0 or 1 and select change drive letter. under that next window you must assign a letter in the drop down box, in your case drive f will work. although you can choose any letter you like. if you installed any programs on this drive you must use the letter originally used for this drive. i suggest try "d" first and see if that makes your programs work, then if not do this one letter at a time up in the scale to see which one works. after you finish this ok and close all windows. restart the computer and should b fixed.

Acer Aspire one will not start. I get a error while initializing the NIC, No bootable device-- insert boot disk and press any key...There is no boot disk.. Any suggestions please..

Its possible the computer is trying to boot from another device, as the computer starts up hit the F12 key, this should bring up boot options, select HDD if it's in the list.
If not hit F2 as it starts and enter the BIOS, look for the boot option and set the HDD as the first boot device, hit F10, save the changes and exit.
The computer will restart and hopefully boot into the operating system
Please post back if you need anymore assistance.
