Question about HP Pavilion DV5000t 1.6GHz Core DUO Centrino 1GB 80GB DVD+RW DL 802.11g 15.4" WXGA Brightview (No Op... (EZ398UA) PC Notebook
Sorry to here about your HP, HD problems.
1st. what kind of hard drive are you installing ? What size and kind did you have orig. ?
I would download disk manager from the internet, or if its a SeaGate drive, SeaTools and run partition manager.
2nd. Also if you have a utility in your BIOS setup to check your hard drive (S.M.A.R.T.), I would attempt to run that utility and check the outcome.
3rd. If your unit has a floppy disk drive, it is probelly a older unit and you may want to see if HP has a BIOS upgrade for it.
Also, if you check the forms @ HP, you may find others with the same type of problems.
If your unit came with a restoration disk set, I would load from that set and make any changes after-wards.
Hope this helps, try it !!
