If it has hp windows installed as standard it reserves some space for recovery so if O/S plays up it can be recovered from it.
One other thing it may be is if a hard drive is listed as 200gb when formatted it is a lot smaller
listed size 200gb formatted size 185GB this is only an example as actual size may differ hope this helps

Hp pav dx6000 doesnt show signs or charging and wont boot up


First of all I want to say that to explain the problems clearly and to use good language. What kind of signs are showed by your laptop? Does it not boot up with battery or with AC adapter? How does it appear your laptop's screen? What is the status of the various LED indicators of your laptop? Does the cooling fan spin? What about the condition of the DVD player? Are there any beep sound hear from the laptop? Any way as a beggining, try a good AC adapter.

Hard disk not gettting detected


in most laptops the hard drive is in the bottom of the computer, under a cover that is hold closed atleast with 2 screws. after removing those screws you should be able to open the hard drive cover, inside you will find the hard drive on a holder, you will in most laptops have few screws that hold the holder still, unscrew the holder and carefully pull the hard drive to the other direction DONT PULL UP, in most laptops you have to pull the drive horizontally or you might damage the connectors.

ones you have the drive and the holder out, you will need to unscrew the hard drive from its carriage / holder.

Screw in the new hard drive and place it back to the laptop the same way you took the old one out.

The Optiarc DVD RW AD-7561A ATA won't work on hp pav dv6000


Windows uses generic simple drivers for any optical drives. Try deleting the drive from device manager and reboot. You do not need to download anything special for windows to operate a drive. If you cannot access the drive then it may be damaged or a hardware fault.

Dv6675 driver download


Hello there.

It sounds like you have reinstalled your Windows OS?

This means yes it is necessary to download the drivers which will make the hardware function properly.

Please click here and this will list all the drivers HP provide. You will need to download and run "NVIDIA nForce Chipset Driver and Network Controller" first, as chipset drivers need to be installed before everything else.

Hope this helps.
