HP Pavilion a1410n Disk Boot failure

One day last week, our older HP Pavilion a1410n stopped booting up. After doing a little research, I determined that it was the power source that had gone bad. So I ordered a new one and replaced it. After successfully booting up the computer, I was immediately met with a "DISK BOOT FAILURE" that would not let me progress farther. It still allows me to press F1 and enter the setup, but I'm not really sure where to go from here to fix it. Help?

After pressing F1 confirm that the master drive is listed in the boot setup program.. If the drive is not listed confirm that the electrical connection from the new power supply is correctly connected to the drive. Failing to correctly connect the hard drive during power supply replacements is most likely the problem. Also confirm the SATA connections to the drive.

Confirm that the drive gets warm and a slight vibration when power is first turned on confirming the disc drive is spinning.

Hope this helps?

SOURCE: "disk boot failure, insert system

You should have a recovery cd, it will allow you to reinstall Windows. If you don't have even that then either borrow one from a friend and use it with you key (the one on the sticker), or order a new disk by following this

SOURCE: hp pavilion a1210n disk boot

ive heard allot of the same problems with HP the screens going to sleep and want wake up ,, seems Hp r built to about the time the warty goes out this will happen , in most cases ive seen it take replacing the motherboard to fix the problem.
ive seen one guy strip down to the motherboard and put in a oven preset to 400 degrees for 10 min then let cool and put back together and it went back to working fine but it also was on a laptop not a desktop.

Xp booting loop bios


Seems to be a bad driver or damaged boot.
If the computer shuts down and restarts check CPU fan and blow dust out from heat sink, CPU may be overheating.
Otherwise, use the recovery disk to repair, or the installation CD and do the system repair. Or from repair disk, if your computer worked fine before, Restore To a Previous setting.

Diskboot failure insert system disk


What was the problem in the first place? Why are you trying to restore the computer?

Or reading wrong; do you mean the computer will not start? Boot?

Primer:
Disk Boot. -> The bootstrap files on the harddrive.
Bootstrap <- Make it easier to understand?

The basic Windows files.

Can't access restoration on the harddrive with F11? Quite common.
I mean, how crazy is that? Let's put the restoration files, (Basic Windows files), on the harddrive? So if the harddrive goes bad?????

Suggest you use the Restoration Disk.

{Pre-built computer manufacturers were packing the Restoration Disk/s with the computer. As time went by the manufacturers saw the users were not using the disk/s, or loosing them.

Didn't want to use, because of fearing computer damage if they error, or didn't even want to try.

Okay. Put the restoration files on the harddrive, then.
Have the new owner make a BACKUP, when the owner turns the computer on for the first time.
Save a few cents without providing the disk for each computer.
(Take a few cents times 50,000 computers, or more)

Hardly anyone makes a backup disk, when the computer is turned on for the first time. If the harddrive goes bad you cannot access the restoration files.

Computer manufacturers have gone back to packing the restoration disk, with the computer }

What?
Don't have the Restoration Disk? (I won't say anything about not making a backup disk. Could be failure time with it, also)

Go to the back of the computer tower, or up on the side. Write down the Serial Number. It's in the white Service Tag. S/N = Serial Number
(NO, do not post it on the internet. Only to an authorized HP representative)

Call HP Support.
In the USA call 1-800-474-6836
24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The Restoration Disk is free. The shipping and handling is not.
$17 for a 5 to 7 day ship. $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship.

For other countries use HP Worldwide Support,

Do I think the Restoration Disk will repair the problem?
Dunno. Don't know what the original problem was. You haven't stated it yet.

Post back in a Comment.

Trying to reformat my hp pavilion a1520n. An error comes up &lt;windowsroot&gt; system32\ntoskrnl.exe. I am planning on upgrading from an xp to a vista but the computer seems like it won't accept...


It sounds a little strange because it should do as the disk tells it.
Check the BIOS is set for DVD/CD Rom drive as 1st boot device.
Insert System disk into drive. Re boot the computer and follow the on screen prompts.
Vista will have no problems because it will check the OS that is installed, notice the date stamp is older than Vista and install a new OS on the drive. XP however may have a problem. If you have SP2 or SP3 installed, your XP system disk is older and will not be allowed to load without prompting.
Hope that helps.

I left it on last night. This morning it was off


check your power cord to insure that you are getting power. make sure power cord is plug in the back.
look in back of computer. you will see a little orange switch. it says 115/220 click to 220. boot computer.
if computer boots up turn off and click back over to 115.
if it does not boot your power supply in your computer needs replacement.
