Question about HP Pavilion Ze4805us Notebook
I had my system corrupt or lose the ntfs files so it will not boot. so i tried to use the recovery disk, but as it is loading it stops and said error code 4? what is the problem? is it my disk or my cd/dvd drive
Could be your optical drive. I was having a similar problem with the same laptop (ntldr missing on startup). Tried swapping out the hard drive and memory but system would not boot OS disk. Swapped an optical drive from another laptop and found this corrected the problem. The original optical drive would light up and spin but failed to load any disk. I'd recommend trying this. The DVD drive is easy enough to replace if you've done it before.
