Hp Pavilion a1220n -- Copy file errors when Installing windows

The original drive got corrupted.
I put in a fresh drive but When Windows XP transfers setup files to the drive it displays over a dozen error messages saying certain files cannot be copied??!
What does THAT mean?
Although it installs the majority of files, the windows installation eventually fails.
Are the files being read incorrectly or is it unable to write the files to the hardboard.
I wish the techs who write these error messages were actually human!
I tried a different cd-rom drive...same error messages...
I tried a different hard drive....same error messages...
I use HP's own recovery disks....same messages...
This has become supremely frustrating.
If you can help please post your ideas here or write me at:

Thanks:-)

Maybe I can help;
When I install a new hard drive I like to re-install the operating system (OS) as well. Unfortunatly this wipes out all your files.
Typically when files do not copy it's either because they're in use or the media (your new hard drive) is not formatted properly.
Note, formatting erases everything on the drive being formatted.
Instruction for this are easy to find online but are all done for you if you use the OS install CD which will walk you through the setup, formatting, and partitioning.

If you have a way to save your files to another drive such as a usb thumb drive, external hard drive, cd or dvd, I would go about it that way. There's usually alot of uneeded files created by the operating system after a period of time and there's no sense in keeping them. They only slow your system down.

One other thing you can consider if you don't have an external hard drive is purchasing a hard drive enclosure for your old hard drive. You can find them at Best Buy. I paid about $30. Its just a case and usb cord you can use as an external hard drive and also copy any files you can still access on this old drive over to your new one.

Let me know if this helps you

INSTALL A NEW HARDDRIVE TO MY HP PAVILION A1220N ERROR MESSAGE COMES UP BOOT MGR IS MISSING


You need to install an operating system like windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 or Linux OS. Your hard drive is blank now and needs programming. If you have a friend that can clone your old drive then they will be able to copy everything from your old drive as it was to your new one. Might need to contact a local computer technician to re-install windows for you if not sure. Also you need to consider the price of windows XP, Vista or 7 if you don't have a copy!! Good luck!!

To fix hpzjrd01.dll errors occurring due to corrupt or incomplete installation of HP printer software, uninstall your printer driver and reinstall it again.

To ensure the HP printer software is completely uninstalled from your system, we recommend you either use the built-in Add or Remove Programs utility or use the help of a third-party uninstaller, such as Perfect Uninstaller.

My desktop shut down and is asking me to re install a 32 windows file. What is this and how do I fix it?


Hi, This normally means that a windows file from the system32 folder is missing or corrupt. You will have repair that by using your operating system cd and go to repair when prompted. If this does not work you may have to install a clean copy of your operating system.

Getting an error message while using the HP Recovery CD's. I suspect maybe an issue with the motherboard.


If the error is the inability to properly record or copy a file, the problem is most likely a bad memory chip. If the system cannot write to a specific address in proper sequence, then it will not detect a bad chip, but will give an error when recording. Chance are, the MB will not cause that kind of problem. Also, if you can borrow an XP or Vista (whichever you're running) system disk, try to do a slow format of the hard drive to make sure it's not bad. Most restore disks use a quick format routine to set up the disk. Finally, if your system is more than 2 years old, I suggest you try replacing the DVD or CD drive. Also, a good cleaning to remove dust and such is a good idea, but most likely the problem is the computer memory chip.

Turn on computer- Wont boot Please Help!!!


Borrow an XP install disk from anyone. Since you are not installing a new copy you don't need a keycode or serial number.

I am willing to bet however that you are going to need to do a re-install having lost this file to corruption. The source of the corruption is the unseen elephant in the room. Be aware that if you can get the computer running move any personal files to new new folder on the C drive. One that you create and not in 'My Documents' or any other windows created folder. When re-installing windows any/all windows folders are deleted and new, empty ones are created resulting in your loss of everything.

1. Boot the laptop;
2. press F12 to go to boot menu;
3. Selected CD/DVD-RW Drive;
4. Press any key to boot to CD; worked fine...
5. Press R to repair;
6. At the recovery console, selected 1: C:\WINDOWS and hit enter;
7. This brought me to C:\WINDOWS> prompt;
8. Typed this C:\WINDOWS> EXPAND -R D:\I386\c_437.nl_ C:\WINDOWS\system32\c_437.nls

type exit

9. And got the error message: The parameter is not valid. Try /? for help.

IF the disk is in the D drive then use this command instead: expand d:\i386\c_437.nl_ c:\windows\system32\

Installing Windows XP on new drive in HP a220n


Your new hard drive has a name, like Seagate, Western Digtail, bla, bla... Go to the Mfg's web site for your drive. Download the bootable floppy disk manager setup utilities. If you have a floppy disk drive. If you don't have a floppy drive most Mfg's allow you to make a bootable CD. Lastly or maybe I should have mentioned this first. Make sure your drive is pinned out correctly. I'm only guessing you bought an IDE drive which has a jumper for setting the drive as a master or a slave or a master with a slave.
