Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook

1 Answer

My Pavillion dv9000 is not starting up all of the sudden and goes to the startup repair window and cannot repair automatically. I don't think hard drive is starting up. What can I do. I need the information on hard drive. I turned on/off, took out battery, removed and reinstalled hard drive and keep getting same screen. Can I start maybe in safe mode or something like that. Thanks Carleton

Bootmgr missing error on startup


There are a number of possible causes for BOOTMGR errors, including the most common "BOOTMGR is missing" error message.

The most common reasons for BOOTMGR errors include corrupt and misconfigured files, hard drive and operating system upgrade issues, corrupt hard drive sectors an outdated BIOS and damaged or loose IDE cables

Anothe reason you might see BOOTMGR errors is if your PC is trying to boott from a hard drive or flash drive that is not properly configured to be booted from. In other words, it's trying to boot from a
non-bootable source.


This also would apply to media on an optical drive or floppy drive that you're trying to boot from.

make sure there are no disks in cd floppy usb drives



How to Create a Windows 7 System Repair Disc:
http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/2083-system-repair-disc-create.html


"This will show you how to create a Windows 7 system repair disc to use to boot to the system recovery options if you don't have a Windows installation disc, can't find your

Windows installation disc, or can't access the recovery options provided by your computer manufacturer."

or

If you do not have access to either disc: Windows 7 - Repair Disc download
http://neosmart.net/blog/2009/windows-7-system-repair-discs/


a) Insert the Windows 7 System Repair DVD or Installation DVD and reboot.


b) Select the correct keyboard input method and click 'Next'.


Note: If you are using the Windows7 Install DVD then at the 'Install Now' prompt (Do not pick the Install


Now option) instead choose the 'Repair your computer' option located in the lower left of the dispay.


c) The System Repair tool will search for a valid operating system and will report that "Windows found problems with your computer's startup options. Do you want to apply repairs and restart your computer?"


d) Click 'Repair and restart' and reboot again to the Windows 7 System Repair environment.


e) Click 'Next' at the keyboard selection prompt and when the 'System Recovery Options' screen appears verify that the "Use recovery tools that can help fix problems starting Windows" is selected.
Note that on your Dual Boot system there now should be only one operating system listed. Click the 'Next' button.


f) Now from the menu list select the 'Command Prompt' option.


g) At the DOS prompt type the following three commands:


bootrec.exe /fixmbr


bootrec.exe /fixboot (may return an 'Eliment not found' message)


bootrec.exe /RebuildBcd


h) Close the command prompt window and click the 'Startup Repair' option.


i) The repair process may take some time, so wait until the process completes at which point you will see two messages "Windows cannot repair this computer automatically" and "Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically".


These messages are the result of the radical changes made by removing the other drive. Ignore the Send/Don't send options.


J) Close this message window by clicking on the X in the upper right corner of the Send/Don't send window. Next click on the 'View advanced options for system recovery and support' option and from the main menu once again click 'Startup Repair'.


This time the repair process may only that a few seconds and when prompted "Startup Repair could not detect a problem", click 'Finish' and run the 'Startup Repair' option one more time, click 'Finish', and then remove the System Repair DVD and click 'Restart'. Reboot the computer.


hope this helps

HP Pavillion dv9000. Intermittent stops. Cannot restart, but will do so after many hours. Screen turns blue with band of torn blue that looks like shutters. System carries out repair check - once worked...


Try booting your computer in safe mode... when your machine starts press F8 and go to Windows. Run for a couple of hours and see if this problem happens.

If you have system restore running, restore back to a point when you didnt have the problem

My pavillion dv6700 starts up then goes black


Hi, Sorry to hear about this. I presume you can't log in in "Safe mode" (pressing the key "F8" while booting) and then to a system restore (available under Accessories -> System tools -> System restore) Nor you have the Windows Recovery Console available to you , nor an original Microsoft Windows CD/DVD (not a HP one) to use to try to do a soft recovery. If I'm correct on the points above, then sadly at this stage it seems you have a fundamental issue with your machine. I recommend that you take out the recovery disks you got with your machine. Inserting the main recovery disk and then rebooting the PC will launch a recovery console by HP. This will make a last attempt to fix your PC or, if all fails, return your PC to the "brand new state". Bare in mind that going to the full restore option will delete ALL the files currently your PC.. hence leaving it, just as the day your bough it. If you don;t have a back up of all your files, you'll need either: Create a boot disk that allows you to connect an external hard drive to copy all your data or ask a local mate or PC shop to extract your drive and copy teh data before you do a full recovery.
Once again, sorry to hear about your issue but I'm sure worst case, you'll succeed at getting your machine working again (even if it means a factory reset).

try starting in safe mode. hold down f8 when you turn on your computer until you get a menu with the option to boot in safe mode. once you successfully log on in safe mode, restart your computer and the problem should be cleared. if not, we can explore further options.

I have an HP Pavillion ZE2000 laptop and it will nto boot up, push button to turn it on. goes to windows page then goes black and nothing happens will nto boot all the way up to windows page with icons. is...


press f8 at startup to get to the windows startup menu, choose "last known good configuration" If that fails, you can choose "disable automatic restart" and the BSOD, Blue screen will appear and give you an error, you can also goto safe mode with the f8 key on startup, choose safe mode, and then click yes at the prompt to start the system restore, pick a date and time the PC worked, and try that.If that doesn't work, you need to restore the PC to factory default state, by using or purchasing restore disks, you would have been asked to make them when you 1st powered on the PC, if you don't have the CD's call HP and order them.
