I have a hp Pavillion dv800 with AMD microprocessor. i installed windows 7 and it was working OK but then some of the drivers were not so I formated the hard drive and tried a restore with the original...

Pull the hard drive, remove the battery AND the BIOS battery. Let it sit for 300 seconds. Then replace the BIOS battery and the main battery, but NOT the hard drive, then go into BIOS SETUP, and choose the default settings. Then boot to a bootable CD (such as Hiren's BootCD 15.2, or Parted Magic). Then set the boot options to NOT BOOT to the hard drive. Then reinstall the hard drive, and boot to your Windows installation CD, and reinstall the OS of your choice.

Hp pavillion dv6627 -- wouldn't start - got it to start - did a diagnostic -- said "replace hard drive" -- tech support at HP said hard drive will go down in 2 days ... is that true?

You need to make status "Active" for atleast one partition and then you need to install on an OS what you like, it will be full working.

The messege did not show to down under or within 2 days or longer.

Good Luck

My husband just gave me his HP pavillion m7350n and it has alot of programs i dont want. What is the easies way of go back to the stuff that came with the HP. I guess i want to know how to do a recovery is...

Most systems come with a recovery drive on their hard disk. Smone times it takes the last drive letter before the CD-ROM drive. If that is the case with you, locate the drive by
1. Double click my computer icon on your desktop
2 Locate the drive that has the recovery data
3 Run the recovery
Make sure you read the instratuctions on the sreen and follow the steps you are asked to follow on the recovery wizard.

This will retore your PC to the factory setting.
But note that most factory seting come with evalution copies of original software like Microsoft Office, etc you may need to get the licenses for these software after the retore to make them genuie.

Bootmgr missing

To fix this, you'll need a Vista DVD and a working DVD drive. It doesn't have to be the original DVD that came with your computer, you can use any Vista disc.

Put the disc into your hard drive and boot from it. The process differs depending on your BIOS, but the most likely way is to go into your BIOS settings (Press DEL when the computer boots), search for "Advanced Settings" and for anything that sounds like "Boot Order", then change your first device to your CD/DVD Drive. Save the settings and reboot your computer.

Once you've booted from the disc, press "Repair" - you'll be greeted with a screen with several options. One of these should be "Startup Repair", press it and let it do its job. When it finishes, reboot your computer: your problem should be fixed now.

If this doesn't work, follow the same steps to boot from the Vista DVD, but this time choose "Command Prompt" when the option appears. In the command prompt type:

bootrec /rebuildbcd

Answer "yes" if it asks you about your installation path.

HP Pavillion dv2500 laptop won't turn on

Kinda strange. Not turning on indicates a hardware problem, you made software changes. If the software changes caused a problem, it would start, just not boot to windows. I would first tryy to reset the laptop. Unplug it and remove the battery, hold down the power button for 60 seconds, then try again. If still no go, start removing hardware one at a time, hard drive, rem, wireless card, dvd rom. You may have a bad hard drive. Your pc should boot to bios if there is no hard drive installed. If that happens, run a diagnostic on your hard drive from your bios. Let me know if you need anything else.
