Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook
The HD died on the computer (dv6930us) so I bought a ssd 120 gig hd to put in it. Now all I get is win 7 loading over and over again. If you go into the bios it doesn't show the hd. The bios version is f.57.
If the hdd is not shown in the bios, it hasn't been initialized. Your Win7 OS disc should do that for you.

Testimonial: "That is not the problem I have even loaded win 7 on the hard drive from another machine. the computer will not see it. It is not a heating problem nor a graphics problem. I am thinking it is a bios problem."

i have the same laptop. though your video card is independent, it is still integrated into the system and cannot be upgraded, your only be there is to go to the Radeon website and download the latest drivers for it.(it helps) As for your Ram, you can only upgrade to 2 mb of ddr2.(on mine it made a noticable difference) As far as the hd goes i believe sky is the limit, i went from 100 gb to 160 no problem

Hi there , if the main battery is removed the cmos battery will go flat , if its a small pcb mounted 1 you can short the contacts for a short time , if the cdrom is working it mains the 5volt supply is ok and you should be able to hear the hard drive spin up unless there is damage to the pins on the hdd or the adaptor or hdd is mounted wrong .

check the cables it properly connected or not. after start up press F8 key to check the installed hard drive is detected or not. if it is not, check with BIOS settings
Thanks Good Luck
Appreciate to rate as "Fixya"

F12 to get boot menu then select CD. The CD drive should led up. If it doesn't read the CD clean the CD in straight motion, try another boot CD as well. If it won't read at all, then your CD drive may be defective and need replacement.

try re-installing OS you might have this feature,,or not, on mine you press F10 whilst booting,if you can this would restore to factory settings,other wise external dvd rom will be needed,and your right ssd's are good technology
