Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook

HP HP Pavilion a6440a Desktop

Got an HP Pavilion a6440a series Desktop with no back up discs and no vista discs. Basically I got it cheap and there was no operating system on the hard drive. Had a Windows XP full install disc with SP2 so installed it. Windows XP up and running. Problem is I have no drivers and the drivers on HP site want you to have vista so won't install with XP. Therefor I got no internet connection on the new PC and no sound and video in VGA mode. I transferred all my settings from my existing PC. What I see is I am using an Iconnect Modem 622 modem to which I have the install disc. When setting up the modem it fails to detect the yellow ethernet cable which I know works because I am using it on this old computer. The modem itself was supplied to me by Primus not more than 6 months ago so is fairly new. I'd like to be able to get an internet connection on the new computer, can you give me any drivers to help it detect the ethernet cable and the internet. Also I have no sound drivers at all so no codecs are installed in the audio section of the control panel. I am using Logitech R-20 speakers and subwooofer which I know work as I have tested them ( have no disc for that either). Then I have no driver for the new sound card Nvdia because the driver on the HP web site won't work with windows XP. I'm spending to much time trying to get the new computer and operating system up and running. Any help with drivers or quick solutions to get the new computer up and on the net plus with sound and video would be great appreciated.

Try this:

  1. Download Belarc Advisor (free) from their website (http://www.belarc.com/free_download.html)
  2. Run it on your Pavilion
  3. Note the device names for which you need drivers for (such as the video card may say 'NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS' - that's the card in my laptop)
  4. Search for the Windows XP driver on the device manufacturer's website (example, for NVIDIA drivers go to nvidia.com)
  5. If you cannot find the drivers on the manfacturer's website, try driverguide.com. Register for free to find the drivers you need.
Good luck and I hope this helped. : )

SOURCE: HP Pavilion a6440a Series Internet Connections & Sound Issues

Please find the model number of the motherboard and the chipset. Once you know this, you can easily find the required chipset drivers by doing a Google. Also, if there are any additional cards, you can google an XP driver for that particular model. If you have difficulty with any particular driver, please post back with the make and model, and i will be happy to find the drivers for you online, if need be.

The easiest option, of course, would be as Ginko suggested, and that is upgrade to Vista, as the system was really designed with Vista in mind..

How to get device manager to recognize SuperMulti DVD Burner? The player is installed (or was) and worked, but it suddenly vanished from device manager.


You should open the case and see if the power cable and sata cables are secured on the drive..... it is possible that the DVD drive control board has died. Considering there are many DVD burners out there for less than $20 the replacement should be cheap and simple.

Here's how to open and replace a CD/DVD drive from the HP site:

Recovery discs?


Hello.

From HP Support:

Most HP and Compaq desktop PCs that ship with Windows Vista and XP do not come with recovery discs. Instead, they use a partition on the hard drive. To access a hard drive recovery, turn on the computer and repeatedly press F11 until a recovery window opens. If your computer originally came with Windows XP or earlier, press F10 to enter recovery.

Hope this helps.

Gateway desktop


Only if it's not an HP labele operating system disc. Otherwise you will need an XP operating system disc, the HP recovery disc with XP will not work with your Gateway or any other manufacturer machine other than HP. The operating system on any manufacturer recovery disc is assigned to that specific manufacturer, so if you try to install from the HP disc it might install, but it will only give you thirty days, then shut down, or it won't install at all. It will be cheaper to purchase an XP operating system disc than all the software over again just for Viiiiiista!!! (I enjoy making fun of Vista) If you have anymore questions or need help feel free to ask.
