Question about HP Pavilion dv8000t Notebook

2 Answers

HP dv8000 crashed last year

Hubby didn't help by formatting the HD's (Dual harddrives).. Turns on but of course has no OS and can't do much... Then turns off after being on for a few mins... When turned on goes past the invent screen then goes into the c prompt and all you see is the following:

Intel UNDI, PXE-2.0 (build 082)
Copyright (C) 1997-2000 Intel Corporation

For Realtek RTL8139(X)/8130/810X PCI Fast Ethernet Controller v2.13 (020326)
PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable
PXE-M0F: Exiting PXE ROM.

Just keeps cycling through that screen over and over...

    It's back up and running thanks to your advice, now the problem stands that I need a new fan.... It's overheating and shutting the comp down... Had to put it on top of the a/c vent last night to get XP back on it and to get it back up and running to where it's almost complete... But for now it's off and awaiting a fan install....

It's trying to boot from the LAN. Don't ask me why but it's got it into it's little brain that it needs to boot from the LAN before anything else. When it can't get a valid operating system image over the network, it gives up and reboots with that error message.

Happily the solution is pretty simple. Go into the bios by tapping F10 when you first turn the power on. From there go to the System Configuration, and into the Boot Options. If you still don't have a viable operating system, it's necessary to set the CD Rom as the first boot device, so it will read a Windows disk. Makes sure CD-ROM Boot is set to Enabled and Network Adapter Boot is set to DISABLED. Then set the boot devices in the following order:

ATAPI CD/DVD Rom Drive
Notebook Hard Drive

- all the other options can be in any order, just make sure these two are at the top.

Pop in a Windows disk or your system restore disk and it should go through fine.

SOURCE: windows dont come up.

I had this happen to me before with an IBM laptop. I bought a new hard drive, reinstalled a fresh OS, and had no more problems after that. I also went right to ibm website and did all the updates, as well as all the microsoft updates. So my same problem as your ended up being a bad hard drive. maybe check into that?.

SOURCE: wile I am trying to boot it up it goes in to a loop

Hello.

That error message usually refers to a hard disk failure. Your hard disk cable could be loose or faulty. Or, your hard drive would need to be replaced.

I'd suggest to check the cable and run your system's hardware diagnostics (often F2 or F12) when your system boots.

Hope this helps.

Restart pressing the F8 key then click on "Last known good configuration". If this doesn't work try saving your stuff because you are going to have to try loading your OS on the harddrive (as long as the harddrive is good.)

If you are recovering to a new harddrive, because your original HD crashed or is about to crash or can't boot, then find a tool (GPartEd is free and works) to format the entire disk to an NTFS partition. If you want to split the partition to OS and "other", Windows 7 Home premium 64-bit needs at least 100Gb. Basically: PRE-PARTITION before trying to restore to a new HD. To me, these other answers are misleading.

Multiple hard crashes. reformated hd. near end of os load, got "hard error" message. Looking for concurrence of HD being shot or could it be other problem. CD


When this happens it is always the hard drive going.gone faulty. I recommend you replace the hard drive. But first, try a full format, from a Boot CD/DVD, that can be used to format, like Partition Magic, or get UBCD, this too has formatting tools, try that one last thing before giving up and getting a new drive.

Toshiba external harddrive recovery HELP!


Well, formatting(generally quick format or complete format) won't make the data erased permanently. In your case the MOST effective way is to try some so-called data recovery software.

First of ALL - Connect your hard drive to your personal computer. And install this software Wondershare Data Recovery on the computer in order to perform data recovery. Get the program from its site.
data recovery (for Windows OS)
Mac data recovery (for Mac OS X)

Good luck. I hope that my reply has shed some light on the problem! Remember - Always make Backups of your precious data!

i guess you need to replace the DVD player now. it may not show any damaged sign on the out side. the laser inside of the dvd player most likely suffered damage.
