Hard Disc Not Exist


You need to get into the BIOS screen and set the boot order so that the CD drive boots first. Then it will boot to the cd and tell you the same thing. That the hard disk has failed and cannot be found.

My hp pavillion dv7 keyboard lock lights keep flashing; at one point the computer didn't want to boot up; I finally got that up today after six months. But the cap lock and the number lock lights still...


those are POST code, error codes, you need to watch time and count them. report them.
leave the battery main out.
does it run ok now? yes/no.? main battery out?.
even new cheap batteries fail easy and hard and short out.
test it with no main battery. it can run on AC power for ever.

are you going to run the COIN cell RTC battery for 10 more years.
it wont make it..
this PC is 10 years old today (can be) so is RTC battery end of life. most fail in 5 to 7 years, says the pink bunny. (and is correct)
the manual shows how to replace it at the real HP Site,
fixya is not hp, not at all.

page 63 shows the way to the RTC

http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01918142


if you power on the PC, and hammer the f10 key]
BIOS runs, its menus;
check the time and date here, if wrong the RTC battery is dead.

read page 3 how.
http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01662442

  • old PC have many points of failure (endless it seems)
  • does the fan run? is it packed in lint, as all are this old.?
  • causing it to overheat?
  • RTC coin cell bad.
  • main battery bad. (just leave it out until the PC runs right again)
  • power pack wires broken, or running real hot.
  • HDD going bad,
  • windows infected?, no OS stated but avoid XP.

Boot up problems for HP Compaq nx7300?


The main problem I assume from what you are reporting is the computer is powered up. but will not boot? Forget the Battery, lets look at the boot process. Considering that the computer has power, the CPU is sending instructions to the hard drive, Please Boot and Start Up. If the Hard drive is defective, it will not obey any instructions to start because the Boot Feature is not operative. Most likely the problem. Remove the hard drive and replace it with a new drive. The new drive is partitioned and ready for the operating system to be applied. You will need a new updated OS (Operating System Win 10) to boot and add programs. Replacing a hard drive is easy. Open the case, locate the hard drive, disconnect it, remove, and look at the details printed on the drive. Usually a SATA drive. You can purchase a new drive on Amazon for $30. This is dependent on the capacity, the 1Gig are about $40. In reverse, put the new drive in the old drives slot, hook up the wires like they were with the previous drive, and with the new Operating System disc inserted into the CD/DVD drive, turn on the computer. The CD/DVD should spin and on the monitor, show the start up for the Installation of the software. It asks for the licensed Key from the OS container. Just go from there. When complete, the new hard drive will be formatted and contain the WIN OS. Now you can boot the computer and add new programs. As for the old drive, if it was dead, you may have lost all data. Always do a back up along the way to preserve valuable data. Using USB Sticks is a good method.

I have a HP PAvilion dv5-1125nr and I recently encountered a problem where on startup it shows a white screen. I tried looking at it from all angles to see if there was a faint image but there was nothing....


no photos of white screen presented or posted.
is it white in a dark room???????????
DV5-1125nr (9 years old (first made date) RTC COIN cell time? sure. page 59 tells you how.

http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01550108


lacking any photos , it be impossible to fix this talking in text box.
no?
as they say ,seeing is believing, what you call white I call black.
white on sunny beach, or black in dark room, can be the same.
PAvilion dv5-1125nr

always post what a pC does in the dark, its best.
all text seen , all logos seen (hp or compaq)
any boot screens, any log in screens.
and if the "hit F10 key to enter HP setup" is missing on said screen as seen now for 9 years running.
if that text is missing,
remove the big battery in rear of LP,they short, so get it out now
and first., do that first. always,,,
then run on AC power,
do the HP long reset? (battery out, ac pack pulled
push power button 10 to 30second, not use the ac pack only
it can run on AC forever, end ever , no problems.
do so now.
got that that 9 year old text now? in the dark, ok?
The F10 is BIOS hot key, power on and quickly hammer F10
bingo for BIOS. see that? see those screens, those are first.
if BIOS is dead, it can not boot any OS made.
BIOS does the booting job, see?
here is your support page. at HP, Fixya is NOT HP. so....

this OLD PC, is CCFL back lighted, all are.
2010 year is the magic hear we went to LED backlamps.
but your PC is 2008, see?
CCFL do these things
dim, go yellow, do dead, go intermittent and blink(strobes)
if dim, AS I SUSPECT , then its that. (brightness set to max)
CCFL tubes are 99% caused
the HV inverter is 1%

here is the tube sets.

if you tell what it does in the dark , all things
good or bad,.
answer get 10x smaller, or in fact , dead accurate.

why not just get it fixed by a tech.
all old laptops do this, EVERY SINGLE ONE.

Hi i have a problem my laptop2510p . i lost my power on password . i cant remove this password , whats the problem also my laptop mother board dont have a battery or dont have a any jumpers al so , please...


this
https://support.hp.com/gb-en/product/hp-compaq-2510p-notebook-pc/3355633/drivers


why not be more clear as to when a PW is asked
bios password
windows login screen?
what do you mean no battery the big one, its not needed to run on AC line power ever.
or the HP RTC coin cell inside. (coin sized, tiny)
lacking the RTC battery that kills dead BIOS.
a first order problem that
so put one in, if missing coin, first. 2.9v below that is bad.
3.3vdc is par value fresh battery.

page 39 in the manual tells you how to erase the PW bios.
9 steps.

http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c02729317


there are 3 power sources.
LIne AC (remove it)
main huge battery remove it.
remove the coin cell.
push the power on, while 100% dead, this helps discharge more things.
wait 15min or even more even 1hr might help.

put the coin cell back first (its under the memory stick bank)
the PC is 10 years old now.
so leave the huge battery out until the PC runs perfectly ok
as most 10 year old huge batteries are now dead or worse shorted. same with the coin cell they do not last 10 years over.
then get bios working next.
power on with AC only pack and get the text working
F10 = ROM Based Setup"
when you see that hit F10 hammer it.
go in to bios and set default settings now
exist and save then boot the HDD.
see if windows works. if windows.

My hp Pavilion dv6000 keeps restarting each time and the screen is left blank all the time. I don't hear any sounds either to detect any hw failure. It's reseting each 13-15 seconds after turning on so I'm...


dv6000, NO OS stated, whY? XP?
for now we get bios going first, damn the OS.
first take the old shorted main battery out,
run on AC only. run now? fan must blow first does it?
also the CCLF go dead, at 20k hours used. black screens for ever now. CCLF is dead LCD backlamps. but fan dead is other issue.

the COin cell goes bad now, ever replace that?
HP RTC coin cell battery , tiny, a $2 fix.
they dont last for 11 years, sorry.

power button dead?
fan dead,?
screen dead. (never ever shows text)???
hdd does not spin making normal noise?
cd eject button dead.?
no beeps?
no caps lock blink codes.?
the AC pack is dead if the PC is %100 dead on AC most times
I can show you 10 to 20 more things inside that can do that.
takes a full dismantle to fix some,

My guess a shop repair is not in the cards?

HP Pavillion dv2500 laptop won't turn on


Kinda strange. Not turning on indicates a hardware problem, you made software changes. If the software changes caused a problem, it would start, just not boot to windows. I would first tryy to reset the laptop. Unplug it and remove the battery, hold down the power button for 60 seconds, then try again. If still no go, start removing hardware one at a time, hard drive, rem, wireless card, dvd rom. You may have a bad hard drive. Your pc should boot to bios if there is no hard drive installed. If that happens, run a diagnostic on your hard drive from your bios. Let me know if you need anything else.
