Question about HP Pavilion ze4300 Notebook

1 Answer

My hard drive went out on my 7-yr old PC which is a HP Pavillion ze4300. It must be done because instead of doing the insect buzz thing it was doing right before it died, whenever i turn it on, it just stays right at the the black start-up screen, and never moves after that. Even when i press F2 or F8. When i checked the hard drive right before it officially died, it was Samsung. Just need to know what kind of hard drive i can purchase to replace it until i officially buy a new notebook. Thanks, Skye

Basically all you must do is determine whether the hard drive is a SATA or and ATA and what size it is.
Remove the hard drive and check the model number. Any logical size, within reason. will run. For instance if you has a 180Gb 2.5" SATA drive then that would be the minimum specification and a 320Gb 2.5" SATA will be fine. If it is am ATA then the same rules apply.
Hope this helps.

REPLACING HP PAVILLION ELITE E210Y HARD DRIVE WITH 2 TB HARDDRIVE CAN i DO THIS?


Yes you can, for hard drives larger than 2TB you will need a 64 bit operational system like Windows 7, XP recognizes hard drives up to 2TB.

HP Pavillion m7750n has already had the hard drive replaced almost two years ago. The computer will be four in January. It stopped working about five months ago and I finally decided I had enough time to...


Either the disk is faulty or the the boot block is corrupted. If you have the operating system CD, you can try to reload it. Doing so will wipe out anything you have on the drive. If it reloads, you will be back in business. It the disk is faulty, the OS will not load.

You may want to take this computer into the Big Box store and have it evaluated before youtry to do this repair.

Thanks for your interest in FixYa.com

Elder parents have a 1 1/2 yr old HP Pavillion Series 4600. They are getting a black screen that reads "Disc Boot Failure Code HP-BIOHD2. Can you help me?


That means that the BIOS of the motherboard can't detect the hard disk = it has died. Replace the hard disk and reinstall.

The recovery disk is defective so the install is bad. Install using another disk (even a generic retail one of the same type will do) and your key.

Transfer data from a dead laptop to a new laptop


Do you have a usb to SATA connector? If so you can plug the old drive into the USB slot and it will act as a slave so you can pull the contents from the old drive to the new. The adapter is about 25.00 or If it was me I would invest into a pocket USB hard drive case that you can put your old drive into perminatly so you can always have a external hard drive for back up later after yo uhave moved the data over and reformatted it. The case is $25-$40.00.

Probably bad memory or loose CPU module. First try removing and resetting CPU. You'll need to remove Keyboard, Palmrest, and heatsink and shield beneath Keyboard. You'll need a small Phillips screwdriver to remove screws and small standard size screwdriver to loosen screw holding CPU. After removal/reset, put everything back together and try powering back on. If still same problem, replace memory located on bottom of LT located behind door. Also, you may have a memory module located under Keyboard next to CPU that may be bad.
