Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook

1 Answer

I've had a HP Pavillion notebook for 2 years. All of a sudden I'm getting a message saying my copy of windows is not authorized and needs to be reloaded. I did not get a windows disk when purchasing the notebook new from Best Buy. I can run programs, but about every 15 mins. a pop up message appears telling me my windows is not valid and to reload. Is there anything I can do without having to buy windows?

Yes, you can click that Microsoft pop-up, and it will lead you through their "key-changer" software -- when requested, enter the 25-character key on the Microsoft decal on the bottom of the laptop, to "get valid".

Or, contact HP and order a set of "system restore" CD/DVD disks for your specific model -- about $20 for the disks, and $20 for shipping -- and reinstall Windows.

Or, some computers have a built-in "System Restore" partition that is "hidden" on the disk-drive. Backup your data files, and then reinstall from the files in that partition.

Is the PC you've used before is the operating system is windows Xp? If you've using windows Xp before then you've plug it in a windows 7 Operating system, it means your hard disc have no problem the operating system of your PC is different than before. Try to plug it in a windows Xp operating system then recover it in there then format it in a windows 7 operating system then, the windows Xp and windows 7 try to make a network place in the connection then share the hard disc files that you've recovered then copy and paste it in the newly format hard drive that formated in a windows 7 operating system.

We do not say that the hard drive is damage maybe the IDE was faulty already. You may open your laptop and check the hard drive. Try to replace the IDE to check if the hard drive is good.
