I have a dv9700 hp notebook and no programs are working. Cd drive isn't recognizing disks, wireless is not picking up networks, its not recognizing lan cables, it says no audio devices are installed,...

posted no less that 3 times (corrected)
what OS? operating system ,windows,and what version please.?
this PC was built for many years, and may OS shipped with it. new. I cant guess that.

take out the battery first? and run on nice clean AC ?
carbon dating shows: 2010 year? not too old and is still supported

if still not slammed , still original, as HP MADE it
the F11 key is the magic key that reloads the unstated OS.
power on, F11,f11, f11, bam , recovery mode.
dig? if this fails then the HDD may be bad.
run he BIOS HDD test yet?
do you have the HP media kit? the install disks.?

It will only work if the HDD is good.
to recover it or reinstall the OS

tests, there are many tests. is that what you want?
battery out.
screens are not dead. so we skip black screen tests.
BIOS works, you can hit the ESC key as it tells you
and you can boot to CD (using test CD known to work.
you can boot to any test USB stick , make stick with linux live or windows 7 PE live and boot that, see
the PC works right>?.??? simple easy tests.
if all that works then the HDD has issues.
the means what.? (more tests)
1: HDD bad.
2: HDD OS infected.
3: HDD OS corruption, use F11 to retort it per the guides.

One good these, I have many, too many.
but one good test for HDD is what.
a: run the BIOS HDD test.. fails, bingo bad hdd.
b: F11 fails can be bad hdd but not always.
Fll can fail for someone damaged the HP special partitions on hdd. (or the HDD was replaced before)

c: so use the HP media kit to install the unstated OS?

if that fails, the HDD is bad but to prove that
I convert my install cds to USB stick installs.
CD to ISO , RUFUS (iso) to STICK (ask)
if those install the HDD is ok but the CD drive is bad.
see? there are lots and lots of tests to do.
or its just guessing game...

I also have a LINUX disk with a full blown, HDD test in it to tell me if the hdd is bad. this works best.
but im not going to teach this here and now,
you must ask.

I did a long post due to you asking 3 times
you sound serious.....

but what do you want? all we see are limited symptoms.
you fix it?
or others fix it?
or guessing list.?

After pressing powerbutton startup stops with a black screen and text: schrijfleesfout

- this means "disk read error"
- you might have a faulty HDD
- try to restart the system and boot to bios by pressing F2
- check under system information if the HDD is detected
- if it's detected or not detected, try to reset Bios to default by pressing F9 and F10
- upon doing this and still the same error then call acer if the laptop is still under warranty to have them replace the HDD

if its saying Please Press F12 it means its not detecting your bootable media (HDD). Check the HDD whether its working fine.(BIOS > HDD self test)/

My Toshiba satelite e-100 wont go passed the toshiba screen I think it is locked. Is my laptop ruined?

No, the laptop is not ruined. Only a little sick. At bootup press F2 and enter the BIOS. On the first screen you will find an option for Auto detecting the HDD. Use it to detect the HDD. Once HDD is detected, save the settings and reboot.
