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 !!

Drive formatted for a pavilion for use in a HP 6005? can it work?


Hi NavyGirl1,
Your PC should have 4 SATA slots whereby you can attach your old HD to the new PC and copy the files across to your new hard drive.

Let me know if you need any further help
Best wishes,

Can I replace orig hp ze1115 20GB hd w/60GB hd?


No the bios should be able to read the drive fine. The problem could be with the computer's motherboard. You should check to see if the original drive and new drive is detected in another system. Or you can try accessing them via an external casing / adapter.

I bought a HP M8430F and would like to install a 2nd hard drive


By set up differently you mean and ATA or SATA difference? That shoudll not matter as long as  the windows are alread on the first harddrive of the HP  Since your drive that you want to move is the second drive and does not contain the operating syastem you should be able to just phisically move the drive from one machine to the other. The new computer will see and install the drive as "FOund ne hardware" and asign it a letter. It will not disturb the data.

HARD DISC


If you bought it new then back up any files and take it back to the shop. If it's a second hand unit then you need to immediately back up to disc or pen anything you want to save. You are being warned that there is an issue with your hard drive. If this fails then you will lose all your information and computer won't fire up until you fit a new hard drive and install an operating system (if you actually have one). Once you have safeguarded your files it might be worth checking if your laptop is running too hot, which can damage a hard drive, is the fan switching on. There are programs free to download that can test the temperature.
