Question about HP Pavilion ze4420us Notebook
XP is dead, now for 3 long years, at HP.
XP is a virus magnet,
See the news yesterday, see UK HSA hospitals all goes dead from the cyberatack,? worm.? Ransome attack ?
XP is hopeless.
MS stopped supporting it 3 long years ago....
both HP and MS ended support, (why ignore this fact>?)
if this PC is still good. (hardware)
if this PC hard drive is still original with HP HDD in place.
power on press F10, this reloads the OS. XP
from the HP magic partitions, bingo back to day one.
on newer HP this key is F11 (VISTA and newer , IIRC)
why not pray tell up grade to W7,
why run XP, are you looking for worse to happen????
like HSA? did and will continue to do ... endlessly?
where is your media kit from HP
do so , is wise. if XP is fun , (not)
here is the link to ask
get the Media kit, and reload XP.
then all drivers work like day one.
HP even has a 3rd party supplying these old kits for OLD PCs
if your read this and tell them what you have
there is a solution
why ask on fixya, why not ask on HP.com
ask the maker direct and WIN.

Yes ... I think it might be a rootkit. Do you have access to the FREE Hiren's Boot CD? If so, you could use the program "Testdisk" to check for rootkits ... which most antivirus programs CANNOT find!

When you say the hardware does not show up do you mean in device manager? Try reloading the device by adding new hardware and selecting the device manually thereby forcing it to see the driver.

Re-install the network adapter drives correctly with the CD you get
if the network card still not working
remove it carefully from the slot and clean the lan card and the PCI clot.
replace the lancard and re-install the drives
Restart the system after installing
Let me know if your problem is solved and rate me as FIXYA!

weird. Try using Windows System Restore to revert back to before installing dameon tools. You can try installing it again but I would re-download just to be safe. It it happens again you might want to try alcohol 120% instead.
