I am selling my HP Pavilion dv4000 series laptop, and I want to reboot the software to make it like it was when I first purchased the computer. I have all of the backup disks. Just don't know how to get started. Can someone help me?

If you are plannig to sell it again and u like it to look as the way when u have purchased, the it means that u need to format and go on with fresh installation.

The best way is to insert the backup disk and reboot to start the installation .

I think this should make the Laptop look new, only on Software part and not about the External look.

When you bootup the laptop, press F8 and you should see a boot from what screen, not the Safe Mode options boot screen. In this list of what or where to boot from there may be a "boot from recovery partition'. This option would reinstall the setup you had wehn you purchased the laptop.

If you don't see that then yes you need to use the backup discs to reset your machine. You start with the laptop off and put disc 1 in the cdrom and start up the laptop. This is dependent on your boot up order, found in system setup screens F10 when booting, having the cdrom ahead of your hard drive in the bootup order.

Can i replace the the hp pavilion DV4000 SERIES 80GB (4200 RPM) HARD DRIVE with any 7200 rpm notebook hdd?


You should be able to replace it, but you will need an adapter lead from laptop hdd to motherboard as the laptop hdd will be smaller and you may need a kit to fix hdd into 3.5" bay. Both are readily available.

No audio driver for xp

download from hp this driver to your my_documents folder and install the software for the driver... then restart your computer

does this work... solution

or goto start > control panel > system > device manager show up

look at your audio device in the list... does it have a yellow explaination point.. no driver installe


a red mark mean on the audio device means that the sound chip is bad... and you need to ship the board to a repair shop ... or rma the laptop for repair if still under warranty

also go under the bios to be sure the sound is turned on .. there sometimes is an option to turn off the sound functionality

HP DV4000 Series not detecting newly installed DVD±RW LightScribe


The type of CD/DVD recorder is suppose to be automatically detected by your Plug N Play portion of your BIOS. Reboot and press the "F" key combination that will bring up the boot process as opposed to the CMOS Settings. See if the correct DVD model shows up as one of your boot electives. You may be able to change it in that window. If not then reboot to BIOS and change it there.
