Question about HP Pavilion DV6700T Notebook PC

Swapped hard drives, wifi doesn't work now.

I moved a seagate 160gb hard drive from a hp pavilion dv9500 my kids munched to a hp pavilion dv6700 that had a seagate 120gb hard drive. Everything works except for the wifi. I get an error message that says "windows needs to install driver software for your unknown device". Another error message is "windows media player network sharing service stopped working and has closed". How do I get the wifi working again?

    Now it's asking for the disc that came with the network controller. What driver would I get for this?

Hey there, go to the following link and tr to reinstall the driver. just enter your model numer (ie dv9074cl) then enter your operating system then it will bring up every driver for that laptop. Make sure you blow out the top left corner slots with canned air on a regular basis with these hp's or they will overheat and eventualy fail. Very important, the are notorious for this. Let me know if you need any thing else

I have a seagate barrracuda hard drive model ST3160023A which came out of a working bootable Compaq Presario 6000. I would like to use this hard drive in a newer workstation HP xw4300. I being told this...


i have not heard of anything like that. the only thing that would make a difference is the connection. yours is sata i believe. here is a link that tells everything about that drive.

i do believe you would have to wipe the drive and format it and treat it like a brand new drive when you install it.

Hard drive replacement. can I use 160Gb other than 120Gb original hard drive? how to recover data from dead hard drive? will Seagate replace the drive if it is over 1 year warranty?


If the drive is out of warranty then no....seagate will not honor an expired warranty. As far as the swapped hard drive yea you can swap for a larger drive as long as it is the same dimention (2.5/3.5 ect) and connect (SATA/PATA/ATA/IDE) as far as loading windows you are gonna have to get your hands on a usb cdr drive....either that or create an ISO image of your operating system on a sd card. Good luck

HP Pavillion dv6700 - black screen


Do the following without the battery inserted.

Let the computer sit with no battery for 24 hours. Do not put the battery in at all. Try using your original memory stick ONLY, with no hard drive and see if it will POST. If it does, insert the hard drive and try again. Could be the new memory...

Another thing you can try is reseating the processor. Turn the ZIF screw, take the processor out (WATCH THE PINS!!) and put back in GENTLY. Leave the memory in the computer, hard drive removed, try to power on.

These models have been known for bad motherboards. Contact HP and arrange to send it in. If you do enough digging on HPs website, you'll find the service advisory.

Hard drive problem


It's possible that your computer's motherboard is "old", and it only supports a maximum of 32GB per disk-drive.

Buy a new 80GB or 160GB disk-drive, and copy all your files from the "old" disk to the "new" disk.

Seagate 160GB SATA Hard Drive Installation.


Hi, Was the original 20Gb HD also a SATA or was it installed as an IDE? Try installing a fresh clean Windows rather than the restore disc. However, you will need the drivers for the SATA 160Gb and press F6 when Windows installers ask you to. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Hope this be of some idea/help. Good luck and kind regards.
