Problem with HP pavillion ze4900 harddrive. bios says no IDE device when trying to find hard drive.


Hello,

You can try to boot from CD/DVD drive with XP cd to see if the install program can find the hard drive. Try to use default setting in the BIOS.

Sounds to me like your hard drive crashed. I had one that did this and same thing. You can either replace the hard drive, use an external hard drive/flash drive (load the os and download laptop drivers) or use a cd based OS like Knoppix.

If you need help with the XP CD let me know.

I hope this helps!!!

Bootmgr is compressed in my presario cq40


The Windows operating system allows you to compress the files on your drive to conserve disk space. In some situations, this compression process will compress files required for the operating system to boot. Files that are compressed must be decompressed prior to execution. Since the operating system has not loaded, boot files cannot yet be decompressed. In this case, the operating system will fail to load and a "BootMgr is compressed" message will appear. An easy way around this problem is to boot from the Windows DVD, and use the provided interface to access your drive properties and decompress it.

Turn on the computer, and insert your Windows DVD. Press a random key on your keyboard once you see the "Press any key..." message. This interrupts booting from the hard drive and forces a boot from the Windows DVD. Click the "Next" button at the bottom of the Windows 7 dialog, and then click the "Repair your Computer" link Below. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/What-are-the-system-recovery-options-in-Windows-7 http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa364219(v=vs.85).aspx File Compression and Decompression Select the "Load Drivers" button at the bottom of the "System Recovery Options" dialog, and click the "OK" button on the "Add Drivers" dialog. This opens a file browser on your screen. Click the "Computer" icon, which is located on the left hand side of the screen. This displays an icon for your disk drive. Right-click your hard drive, and click "Properties. " This opens a Local Disk Properties dialog. Click to deselect the "Compress this drive..." option at the bottom, and then click the "Apply" button. Select the "X" icon to close the file browser window. This takes you back to the Install Windows dialog. Press the "X" icon at the corner of the Install Windows dialog. This opens a cancellation dialog. Select the "Yes" button on this dialog to restart your computer. Hope this helps

Dear Madame/Sir, Recently my computer (a compaq laptop from hp) crashed. I tried to open the recovery program, but it won't start. I think the program can't find my driver (c or d?). What should...


Use the Restoration Disk.

1) If you want to save your personal information perform a repair.
(Non-Destructive Installation)

2) If you wish to bring the laptop back to Day 1, (As it came from the factory), perform a Full Installation.
(Destructive Installation)

This method will wipe off all of your personal information.
Photos, videos, documents you have created, or downloaded, programs you have installed, or downloaded.

If you do not have the Restoration Disk (CD) contact HP Support.
Have the Serial Number ready to give to the representative.
It to the right of S/N on the bottom of the laptop, in the white Service Tag.

In the USA the disk is free. The shipping and handling is not.
$17 for a 5 to 7 day ship, $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship.
Call the toll free number 1-800-474-6836
{24 hrs a day, 7 days a week}

For other countries contact HP Worldwide Support,

Drivers are small pieces of software. A Driver is used for the operating system to 'communicate' with the device.

(Windows XP, and Windows 7 are two examples of an O/S. Operating System.

Some examples of a device are, CD or DVD optical drive, Harddrive, graphics card, printer, mouse, keyboard, and so on.

C: drive is the Harddrive.

D: drive is a drive letter generally reserved for one of two items.

1) A recovery drive on the Harddrive. (Harddrive is partitioned into two spaces. The D: portion is smaller. Just enough room for the basic Windows files generally, and a little extra space.

2) An optical drive.

Drivers are located in the C: drive, with a copy in the D: drive.

(Provided IF, there is a partitioned D: drive on the harddrive, and the drive letter D: has not been assigned to an optical drive)

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Resumin windows... for troubleshooting and advanced startup options for windows.. Press F8. I've tried but it did not do anything. It appears as the screen is frozen.


Either you did not shutdown the computer properly or the hard drive failed. When you press F8, it should give you an option to boot to "Safe Mode". Boot to "Safe Mode" and it should load up to the account login page and your desktop:

- If it does load, attempt a system restore by going to Start --> All Programs --> Accessories --> System Tools --> System Restore, then select a previous time/date to go back to.

- If it doesn't load, then the hard drive has very likely crashed, which would mean you will need to replace the hard drive.

- One more thing you can try is performing a factory recovery. The downside to this is that you need an external CD/DVD-ROM drive and the Operating System discs. This will allow you to restore the computer to factory settings, so it will erase everything you have on the hard drive and reload a clean OS and appear just like the first day you purchased it. This will rule out any software issues.

The hard drive crashed will not start


If the hard drive have crashed meaning that the hard drive itself is damaged, then your solution is to replace a new harddrive. If you do have a recovery disc already made, or one is provided then you will have to use that disc once the hard drive is replaced with the new one, and follow the procedure to reinstalled the operating system. If the original hard drive had crash and does no work anymore (where the bios/computer cannot detect it) and you have important data that you would like to retrive, there are places such as office depot, bestbuy, where they can help you send it to a recovery file center to recover files from your damaged hard drive. Do not attemp to fix or open a damaged harddrive, you can forever damage the files on the cyclinder disc. 2) Now if your harddrive crash in term as windows just crashing and you cannot get into your operating system and the bios is still able to detect the hard drive, and it's giving you a error message, then you will only need to reinstall, or do a windows recovery through your recovery disc, If you do not have a recovery or made the disc, then you will need to buy a new operating system software. If you computer does not start meaning no display on the screen at all, then please replay back. That is a different story.

HP Pavilion dv 3 not booting up. The screen says "no bootable device. Insert boot disk and press any key."The operating system is Windows Vista. I've only had the computer for one month. I purchased it...


It sounds like the computer may be trying to boot of of a CD or USB drive. Make sure no discs are in the drive and that nothing other than the AC cable is plugged in when you turn it on.

If that doesn't fix it, it's probably a problem with your Hard Drive and/or the BIOS. In either case, the best thing to do is to send it in to HP to be fixed, as there is a 1 year manufacturers warranty.

HP costumer service can be found here: http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/contact_us.html

They will send you a box to put your computer in, and pre-pay postage.

Hard drive crash, not usable at all; downloaded xp drivers and computer drivers but cannot get them installed. Hard drive not recognized.


When you install a new harddrive, it has no Operating System on it.
Windows XP and Windows Vista, are examples of an Operating System.

Each laptop manufacturer, has their own system of changing a laptop harddrive. Some allow you to press a key or two, to put the laptop in a state where it will save the basic Operating System files, and when you install the new harddrive, it will transfer them over to it.

Some laptop manufacturers do have this option.

You either have to take the harddrive out, install it into an external enclosure for a harddrive, (Uses a USB cable) Then attach the external enclosure via the USB cable, to another computer, and use a 'mirror' imaging program to save the Operating System to that computer.

Then the new harddrive is installed in that external enclosure, and the Operating System is 'mirrored' over to it.

Just information for you, as you cannot do this now with a crashed harddrive.
Your option now, is to buy a genuine copy of the Operating System you had on the laptop, and install it.
Not what you wanted to hear, huh?

You need to buy whatever version of Windows XP it had, (WinXP Home or WinXP Pro), or Windows Vista.
If it was Windows Vista, I suggest getting at least the Windows Vista Home Premium version.

I personally prefer Xp over Vista.
Tigerdirect.com, and Newegg.com, have these.
Look for Software>Operating Systems.

OR, you can simply put Ubuntu Linux on it for free.
