How to fix a disk boot failure

download ubuntu. copy it onto a dvd as an .iso that will then be used as a bootable disk. Install this disk in your cd/dvd drive. Turn on your pavilion and go into bios to make sure the DVD drive has boot priority. Once you boot up into Ubuntu, you can access the DISK UTIL. Running this utility will offer you a way to read the "smart data" and thereby verify if your disk is physically damaged. IF the smart data shows any bad sectors, then try to do a back up and reinstall on a new hard drive. It's a long process but diagnosing the physical condition of the drive is the first step.

HP has no issues with it, its near obsolete. 10 years old.
HP drops support after 10years
no OS stated, is this the virus magnet XP or now dead VISTA
that matters big time, the OS, state that first.
all hardware can be fixed. all can,! deep pockets and lots of spare time. sure.
all old PCs freeze!, for many reasons.
top causes (my worthless guess only fate wins is true )
1: virus infected , x
2: the main battery is shorted, take it out run on AC all day.
3: coin cells fail, all do , not one lasts 10 years (2-5 is spec from top maker ('copper top")
4: spilled drinks into IT.
5: HDD bad. dead or failing and freezing, sure. vast PCs are put in the land fill for this alone when you see price of the fix.
(new HDD + new cost of new OS + labor) ouch

now the HP point finger thing, sure there are limons.
many (vast) 2008 laptops had the GPU Nvidia solderballs from H3LL failure, HP and you victim.

if the screens does not do crazy things, its not Solderballs.
your PC came with VISTA new. is it still vista after 10 long years?
VISTA support ended at MS this spring
this makes getting vista drivers from MS real hard if not inpossible.
that leaves only HP page for driver, lucky you not deleted yet
see that word yet, hint hint get em which you still can now.

the RTC battery coin cell is beach to change, page 62 and must be.

the software for vista is here, (official) not fake or infected
as others post here (spam bs)

so if you put in any linux disk CD and boot if the Linux runs ok
then you lean in 5min that the OS on the HDD is bad or the HDD is bad.
things to check
fan blows? no packed in lint or overheating all vents clear.
COIN cell new? 2.9v to 3.3v good below that not good at all.
run a HDD test yet, that be next. in order here.
the BIOS can have a HDD test if lucky most do 2006 up. years.
The linux disk has nice smart test, for DISK
shown here.
see smart and full disk test using a boot LIVE LINUX
also ubuntu 17 disk, (boot stick) question one is LIVE
pick live and then pick search , try disk , pick disk
see here how. this is how I test all HDD,

I do it that way so corrupted VISTA cant get in the way of TRUTH.

My averatec booting problem

The SMART is the monitoring system that is embedded in all hard disks - if it reports a failure it means that the hard disk has died. You need to replace the disk and only after that you can reinstall.

Hello. I have a hp pavillion DV9000, 17" screen. I am having an issue with the computer "freezing" on the windows xp loading screen. When i originally got the laptop (bought used) it worked fine. But now...

Buy a registry cleaner and let it sort things out. If you changed operating systems, there are probably things left on that although they don't cause a conflict, cause a delay while being sorted. I use PA Tools, Registry Mechanic. This is just my personal preference. There are others that you may prefer.

My hp pavillion dv4000 wont load the operating system

Try booting your system in safe mode.
  1. Reboot
  2. press F8 continuosly while it reboots until you get options asking how you want to boot up.
  3. Choose safe Mode w/ networking
  4. If it reboots fine than that tells us itcould be a possible hardware issue.
If it still has issues booting up than It could be that your system files on your operating system may be corrupted. Try fixing your XP installation files with an XP disk if you can.

There is option in BIOS called something about automated SATA recognition or similar - disable it. It is under System configuration. And if you are putting new drive in then run full test from BIOS (Hard drive selftest - takes about 79min.)
I tried to reinstall Windows Media center on my HP dv6000 because my previous hdd crashed - When I put in installation cd - it said that it can't find hdd. I spent week to figuring that out. The thing is - as far as you haven't disabled that SATA thing in BIOS - PC doesn't recognize hdd. But only with Windows media center edition. With all other windows xp - there is no such problems. Strange.
