Does the bios screen shows up ? if not, then, it is not hard drive issue.

to be a harddrive issue, it has to show somthing on screen. and if it shows something and then halts with some errors, you can provide the displayed message. if nothing shows up, it can be power,ram or other issues. was there any other problem before this of suddenly it stopped to boot ?

Where is the reset button


If you mean how do you return to factory condition, press F11 just before it boots and follow the prompts.

Recovering your computer without recovery discs
Creating recovery discs (or USB storage device solution)
Ordering recovery discs from HP in the United States and Canada
Finding recovery discs from other Web sites
Contacting Support
HP recovery discs can be used to return a computer's software configuration to its original condition. HP provides a recovery solution on the hard drive, but it is still a good idea to keep recovery discs stored in a safe place in the event of a hard drive failure. Use the sections in this document to obtain a recovery solution that works best for you.

NOTE:HP computers designed for commercial use, such as Workstations or Pro series, use "Operating System" or "HP Restore Plus" DVDs. To order these types of discs, go to the HP Replacement Part Store . Recovering your computer without recovery discs You may not need recovery discs to recover the software on your computer. HP provides a recovery solution on a separate area of the hard drive. If the hard drive is still functional, you can still perform an HP system recovery from the hard drive as long as the recovery information has not been destroyed or corrupted.
To do a software recovery from the hard drive, turn on the computer and repeatedly press the F11 key until "Windows is loading files..." displays on the screen. If your computer originally came with Windows XP or earlier, press F10 to enter recovery instead of F11.

    How to restore to factory settings


    You should have either a recovery partition on the hard drive or a set of recovery DVDs. HP tends to favor having both available. Power on the computer and you should get options such as Press F9 for boot menu / setup press F# for recovery. Press whichever key it states for recovery (typically it is F11). It will load into a recovery GUI select destructive recovery/restore This will delete everything and restore the computer to factory defaults. If you need to go the DVD route. Insert the first DVD and reboot the computer. Make sure that the computer is in boot from DVD drive first.

    How do i restore my hp pavilion ze2000 to factory settings without disks?


    Hello,
    Most HP Pavilions have a recovery partition on there hard drive. You will need to press f11 when you boot to activate the recovery segment of the hard drive.
    Now if the recovery partition was distoryed then you will need to call Hp for replacement image disks witch they will charge to ship to you.
    I do wish you good luck on this and do hope that you leave positive feedback for your response today.

    Sincerely

    Sounds like your hard drive is going bad. Best thing to do is to take it to a shop and ask them to check your hard drive. Or, if at all possible plug it into another PC externally with a external HDD kit and check it with programs such as crystal disk info.


    Best of luck

    Hi there
    A clue is in the error message you get "hard drive failure" this means the hard drive which holds the operating system is corrupt and will not allow a reinstall, you have to purchase a new hard drive before you can reinstall the operating system and then you'll be good to go.
    If the laptop is still covered my the manufacturers warranty i recommend you take advantage of that and send it in for repair, if its out of warranty you'll be able to get one from any reputable PC store.


    Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

    Delete key takes you into the BIOS Setting Setup that should be avoided if not sure of what it is all about, THOUGH it would be Ok to choose Load Default (Safe) Settings and then save and Exit (F10)? and Y or something like that.

    F11 is a shortcut to a setting within BIOS Setup, it lets you choose Boot Device from List, normally you would try the Hard drive , as it is there that you want Windows to Load from unless of course you are trying to boot from a Windows CD/DVD then you would choose the CD or DVD from List....good luck

    Keyboard is stuck and need change boot order


    You can try connecting an external keyboard. When the external is connected the BIOS may ignore in built-in keyboard, bypassing your keyboard error.

    You can also try removing the stuck key by prying it up GENTLY.

    The answer to your question is unless you can get a working keyboard connected to your computer there is no way to change the boot order. Without a working keyboard you can't get into the system setup (BIOS), nor can you press the correct key.

    Change boot sequence for HP L2000


    Hi,
    You need to enter BIOS at startup. The correct key to press will be displayed at the bottom of the black screen when you bootup. Usually, F10, F8 or F11 or Del. Mash them all on booting up.
    Now navigate the Bios settings with the arrow buttons and select cdrom as 1st boot device with the enter button. Then Save and Exit.

    Fixya!

    Factory settings


    If windows still boots ( and the original hard drive is still in the computer) you can click the start button and find the HP Recovery Manager under the All Programs list. It is probably tucked away under one of the HP tabs.

    If windows doesn't boot, and you still have the original hard drive you can press F11 when your first turn it on at the HP logo screen. It should start the recovery program. (The F key can be different on different laptops but most recent HP's are F11)

    Be careful, doing a System Restore will erase all your Data, so backup anything important!
