If you have a windows installation disc, you can boot with it and choose repair. Let windows repair the startup files. In Vista, just boot with the disc, choose repair, vista will search the windows installations and give you the result, you highlight the installation and hit repair.

If you have XP, choose repair and when is says to exit to go to recovery console ot install, click install > click F8 to agree > windows will search for windows installations, again highlight the windows installation and choose to repair at that point, windows will attempt to fix the startup files.

I just purchased a Pavilion dv7 4165 lap top.I was told I should create a back- up disk for the system in case the computer encounters a virus and I have to dump everything.I was told it would take around...


Linda, press the Windows key and type recovery. The disks are not really backup, per sa. The disks are needed in case your hard drive fails. The system disks are shipped in a D:\ drive, fine if the drive works, but not helpful if the drive itself fails.

If you do not find the recovery disk program, look in accessories and system tools.

If you still cannot find it, go to HP.com and look under support. HP has free support and they can help you.

Windows did not start succesfully


Start in safe mode to see if it is capable of starting without the drivers - if so, click start > accessoties > tools, and follow prompts to restore to an earlier time (when the pc worked).

You should back up your files regularly and be prepared to purchase a new hard drive and install Windows on the new hard drive etc. when the hard drive eventually fails.

HP812C and/or Epson LX300+ dot matrix Printers installed to a HP V3431 lap top computer would not print.


Download the latest drivers from the manufacturer websites rather then relaying on the old cdroms - they are probarbly outdated and made for XP.
