On startup go into bios and select default values and then save and exit then restart.
at the very least we want to see a message saying no operating system found then you can install os.(hd detected)

Hard disk 1 (3f1) error


Hp says it is a potential problem with your external hard drive.Download Hard Disc Sentinel,the free version will give you enough info on the HDD status to determine if it has an issue.The other alternative would be to unplug the drive before you bootup to avoid the message - plug it back in when Windows has loaded and check the drive for errors or problems by clicking on: My Computer - right click E drive or whatever letter the drive has - click on Properties at the bottom of the options panel - click on Tools which opens check disk options.Good Luck

Your hard drive may have failed.
I suggest you remove your hard drive and re-connect it to your laptop to make sure it is make proper connection. Boot up and go into the BIOS to see if the hard disk is detected.
If the hard disk is not detected then most likely the hard disk has failed.
To get your laptop working, you will need to purchase a new hard disk and install Windows on the new hard disk plus the Pavilion device drivers and your programs,
You can download the device drivers from the Compaq/HP WEBsupport/download page. Make sure you select your model laptop and the XP orVista Windows version of the drivers you require and install them. Click onthis link to download the drivers: -

Could be either a bad hard drive or the hard drive controller. best way is to download the hard drive test from the manufacturer of the hard drive and test it.

WHATS UP WITH MY LAPTOP 3623


Hi,

This issue normally means that your hard drive is bad. What the computer is trying to tell you is that it attempted to locate Windows, but it can no longer be found. The Hard drive is normally the case for this message. If you want to be sure its the hard drive I would suggest downloading http://www.knopper.net/knoppix/index-en.html and boot from this CD try and access the hard drive with this cd, if you cant the Hard Drive is toast. If you can the OS became corrupt and could still mean the Hard Drive is close to being toast. Either way throw the toast in the trash and buy a new Hard drive. http://www.newegg.com/

Have a great week,

SUDDEN SHUTDOWN


Hi,

I am Vikram Kumar Thumu from India-Hyderabad. I would like to provide you my suggestions on this issue for you...

Well, this issue could happen only due to below three reasons....

1. If the Hard Disk Drive is bad.
2. If RAM card is not working properly.
3. If there is an error with Operating system...


However, to isolate and to resolve the issue I recommend you to perform below solutions and try out. I hope that this should resolve the issue for you.

Solution 1: BIOS UPDATE OR BIOS FLASH
-----------------------------------------------------------------

Note**--- THIS BIOS UPDATE IS APPLICABLE IF YOU ARE USING WINDOWS XP.

NOTE**-- If you are ready to perform BIOS update, please connect the Notebook with Ac Adapter and make sure that Battery is also installed for Notebook.

Please open below link in the new Internet Explorer web page...
The web page titles as " WinFlash Utility for HP Notebook System BIOS; Windows-Based"

Link is:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=ob-39816-1&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=435618&os=228&lang=en

Once if you open the web page, please click on the option " Download Only" and then try to save the download file on Desktop and run the file after download is completed.

This should successfully install the BIOS Update. However, if the issue still persists then please perform next solution

Solution 2:
---------------
In this solution we will check the functionality of Hard Disk Drive...

Please restart the Notebook, while it tries to boot up please press F10 key, this should get into BIOS screen or ( SETUP UTILITY ) screen.

In the BIOS screen please locate to the Tools or Advanced Menu, and then select the option HARD DRIVE SELF TEST. and go ahead with testing the HARD DRIVE SELF TEST.

Once if test is completed, it reports a message of the status on Condition of Hard Disk Drive. If you receive error message then it confirms that this is an issue with hard Disk Drive. then you need to replace the Hard Disk Drive for your Notebook.

Else if it reports success, then it confirms that Hard Drive Drive is perfectly alright..

Then only possibility that is left is " Error with Operating system"..


if you found that it is an issue with Operating System then please go ahead with reinstall of the Operating System for your Notebook PC.


This should resolve the issue for you...

If you need any further assistance on this issue, you can mail me at thumuvikram@rediffmail.com , I'll be glad to help you further on this issue.

Bye..
