Ze5185 operating system not found

Operating system not found is the message I get when trying to turn on my ze5185. If I leave it on for several hours with this message on the display it will start. My guess it has a thermal open which expands and makes contact when it gets warm after displaying this message for several hours.

Could be a sign that hard drive is failing or a problem with Windows. Do you hear any strange noises, clicks?

Try re-installing Windows and see if that helps.

Thanks!

Where are a number of way to do this on a Pavillion. However, HP has not standardized this procedure. The following are three ways they have setup to do it.

Turn on the computer.
When the initial blue HP screen appears Press the "F10" key.
A Recovery menu will appear.
Click on "NEXT" and then click on "YES"
Your system will now go through the product recovery

or

Starting recovery within Windows XP
From the Desktop, click "START".
Then "ALL PROGRAMS"
Then "HP TOOLS"
Then Click on "HP PC SYSTEM RECOVERY"
You will now be asked "Do you really want to start HP PC System Recovery?"
Click on "YES" to continue.
Your system will now go through the product recovery.


or

on start up try clicking F10 for System recovery.


Sorry for any confusion but I am not HP.

Hope this helps you.

Good Luck!

Windows is severely corrupted and must be reinstalled - you will need an external optical unit for that.

Operating system not found


This message means that the hard disk was not detected, this is due to either the BIOS setting was changed or the hard disk has failed.
Try booting up with a DOS disk and run FDISK, and see if it detects the hard drive, if possible run a diag test program.

SYSTEM RESTORE


You need restore disks or an opperating system to restore any computer to factory condition. Simply put the disk 1 in your dvd/cd drive and go from there. It usually takes 45-60 minutes to do this.

IF you don't have restore disks you can make them on your system (if its running) or you can call the manufacturer and they will send you them for a small fee.

Compaq presario not working


This generally indicates hard drive failure. Try reinstalling your operating system, if you have any problems during or after the install, then the hard drive will need to be replaced.

HP Pavilion ze5185 PC Notebook ATI Mobility Radeon


indeed you are having and ATI chip beneath the keyboard. (a BGA 256 ball ATI Mobility) Unfortunately due to rights the laptop manufacturers are developing the graphic drivers and not ATI so these drivers you found are at best totally incompatible.

Go to this Link from HP and download ZE 5185 model that you own - Also you will find manuals and all other drivers for the laptop.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?product=214330&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=&lang=&cc=us

(Select your operating system - The Driver in included in the whole driver package (sound,etc) Pls check the description.(the size should be around 42mb)
