Question about HP Pavilion ze2000 Notebook

1 Answer

Have an hp pavillion ze2000 that will only detect the hard drive intermittently.Bios will sometimes show the drive and windows will boot. Suddenly windows will BSOD and I have the problem with bios detecting the drive once more. I believe the drive to be fine as it is new. Could it be the i/o controller? Thanks for any help. Stewart

First reseat the drive firmly, and see if there is any difference. It is amazing the difference a millimeter will make in getting that driver to stay detected. If reseating does no good, then the MB connection itself is suspect

MY HP PAVILLION 305W SAYS SYSTEMNOT FOUND WHEN I TURN IT ON JUST GOT THIS COMPUTER KNOWING ITS A DINO.. BUT IF YOU COULD HELP THAT WOULD BE APPRECIATED


First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

Insert boot disc error on hp pavillion a622n


Boot disc error indicates that your computer is unable find any Operating system to boot up. Go to BIOS settings and figure out if your BIOS detects your hard drive. If so, format your hard drive and install an operating system.

I would love to hear from you in regards to this concern.

But If Hard disk drive is not detected change data cable,power cable of Hard disk.If hard disk is detected in bios follow upper rules. And if it is not detected again you should walk into Hard disk repairing center and check hard disk there.

Hp pavillion dv6915n - no hard drive detected


We do not say that the hard drive is damage maybe the IDE was faulty already. You may open your laptop and check the hard drive. Try to replace the IDE to check if the hard drive is good.

Freezing or shutoff on boot, setup or minutes into operation


Try this:

Boot the system with your Windows XP installation disk. When the boot options window appears select R for recovery console. Once you have logged into the DOS session type: fixmbr and hit the enter or return key and select "y" for yes you want to do this. Type: fixboot and hit the return key again, hit "y" for yes.
