Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
When I power on my laptop all it does is show a black screen with the hp logo...it gives the option to hit ESC to reboot, but when you do, will not do anything, and also F10 for reset, but also does not do anything...is saying cannot find hard drive...what do I need to do, any advise would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
HP pavillion will not load
if you are able to see the HP logo that tells you that bios is loading but when it gets to the operating system on your hard drive, it can not be located. One of the reasons can be a bad hard drive if it is it needs to be replaced, turn the computer over and check that access covers, one shows you a hard drive logo and it should have 1 or 2 screws, remove those or just loose them up. You may have to stick a tiny flat screwdriver under the cover to pop it off, after you do that remove the screws that hold the hard drive; there should be a plastic or tape tab to pull the hard drive out. Go ahead and pull it out, make sure that the adapter on the hard drive (shiny box) it is properly attached. check the prongs on the computer where the hard drive goes check for dark spots (burn like) if everything looks fine, re insert hard drive (make sure that it makes proper contact) and close the lids turn it on and see if it loads. if it doesn't then you know how to replace a hard drive you just have to have your cds' to load the operating system
