It is rare that you get notice of impending harddrive failure so heed the warning now. If it were me, I would back up all files to an external drive, and better yet, use a program such as Norton Ghost or Acronis and make a drive image. That way you can blow the image back on a new drve and be up and running right away. The alternative is to back up docs, pics, etc and reload every program including operating system, which is very time consuming.

1. I suggest you purchase a portable 2.5 usb case. there should be instruction the the portable case.
2. Remove the hard drive from the laptop and put it into the portable case and back up the contents to another PC with enough hard drive space to accommodate.
3. Go to Repair4laptops ( do a Google search) it should show how to remove the hard drive step by step from your laptop.
4. To replace with a new hard drive reverse the steps.

Why is it when i go to start my computer it doesnt wanna load windows, it says disk boot failure, insert system disk and press enter. My computer was working fine right before. can someone please tell me...


Hi, the computer is not detecting the hard drive or the hard drive is corrupt. At startup you are likely to hear a knocking sound if the hard drive is physically damaged. You can go to bios setup at startup ( could be F1 or Esc). Once there it should indicate if there is a harddrive or not. If it indicates none there the harddrive might have crashed and will need repalcing. I hope this helps.

My pavilion dv5000 says on startup media test failure check cable


Computers can start-up ("boot") from many different devices:
* 3.5" diskette,
* CD-ROM,
* USB memory-stick,
* disk-drive,
* network,
* external USB CD-ROM

and so on.

Your computer is trying to use the network adapter to download a bootable image through a connection with a network-cable to a "network-boot-server" computer.

In your case, "check cable" means that your computer's network-port is either *NOT* connected to a network, or that no "network-boot-server" responded to the request to download to your computer.

First, check the "boot-order", i.e., the priority of each of the bootable devices, to ensure that "boot from network" has a LOWER priority than booting from your diskette, your CD-ROM, and your disk-drive.

Second, check that your disk-drive *IS* one of the bootable devices.

Is there any bootable media in the diskette?
Is there any bootable disk in the CD-ROM?

If not, then your computer has *TRIED* and *FAILED* to boot from your disk-drive, and then tried and failed to boot from the network.

So, it's possible that your disk-drive has failed.

Take the computer to a qualified technician, and get them to remove the disk-drive from your computer, and to connect it to another computer, to see if the disk-drive still is in working-order.

Battery with HP Pavillion DV5000 won't work. Do I need to replace the battery or is there a battery charger I could use to recharge the battery? Dianne


You can order a power cable online or pick one up at your local computer store. They should run between $80-150. The battery itself is very expensive to purchase but is rechargeable.
