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.

I guess you have win xp if this is right try to do repair put the xp cd in the cd drive restart the computer when boot up it will read the disk and it will seds to boot up with cd press any key so press enter than it will inicialized the xp instalation follow the screen options and just before to do a format it wll show you some options one is going to say install windows or press F3 if you wants to quit the instalation do the installation than will will ask you to do a clean instalation by doing a format and the other is to do a repair so presss F8 to do repair and will ask you again presss R if you wants to do a repair so press R an then the repair will continun like if you are doing a clean installation with the only diference on repair just repair the windows and do not delete any files or programs that you did after the windows installation but be very carfull y you click on any time the option the one seds do clean installation or format the hard drive you will loose everyting and you'll have new operative system with just de normal programs so there is two ways to do it a repair or a clean one thats your choise
