When you first power on the machine (assuming it's either a dv2000, dv6000, or dv9000, or hdx9000), hit F11 on the keyboard repeatedly until the recovery screen pops up. Click on advanced options, click system recovery, then click OK when prompted. the recovery process will begin and take about 25 minutes on a 5400rpm hard drive. then you must reinstall everything that isn't factory.


Hopefully this will help.

HP has no issues with it, its near obsolete. 10 years old.
HP drops support after 10years
no OS stated, is this the virus magnet XP or now dead VISTA
that matters big time, the OS, state that first.
all hardware can be fixed. all can,! deep pockets and lots of spare time. sure.
all old PCs freeze!, for many reasons.
top causes (my worthless guess only fate wins is true )
1: virus infected , x
2: the main battery is shorted, take it out run on AC all day.
3: coin cells fail, all do , not one lasts 10 years (2-5 is spec from top maker ('copper top")
4: spilled drinks into IT.
5: HDD bad. dead or failing and freezing, sure. vast PCs are put in the land fill for this alone when you see price of the fix.
(new HDD + new cost of new OS + labor) ouch

now the HP point finger thing, sure there are limons.
many (vast) 2008 laptops had the GPU Nvidia solderballs from H3LL failure, HP and you victim.

if the screens does not do crazy things, its not Solderballs.
your PC came with VISTA new. is it still vista after 10 long years?
VISTA support ended at MS this spring
this makes getting vista drivers from MS real hard if not inpossible.
that leaves only HP page for driver, lucky you not deleted yet
see that word yet, hint hint get em which you still can now.

the RTC battery coin cell is beach to change, page 62 and must be.

the software for vista is here, (official) not fake or infected
as others post here (spam bs)

so if you put in any linux disk CD and boot if the Linux runs ok
then you lean in 5min that the OS on the HDD is bad or the HDD is bad.
things to check
fan blows? no packed in lint or overheating all vents clear.
COIN cell new? 2.9v to 3.3v good below that not good at all.
run a HDD test yet, that be next. in order here.
the BIOS can have a HDD test if lucky most do 2006 up. years.
The linux disk has nice smart test, for DISK
shown here.
see smart and full disk test using a boot LIVE LINUX
also ubuntu 17 disk, (boot stick) question one is LIVE
pick live and then pick search , try disk , pick disk
see here how. this is how I test all HDD,

I do it that way so corrupted VISTA cant get in the way of TRUTH.

i would advise a different os than vista but you can put the old hard drive back in run it in safe mode and by a cheap external hard drive case and transfer the files for the operating system to the new hard drive and then switch the drives back out

P1005 hp printer windows vista will not recognise

hmmmm i would first make sure all window vista driver are in first. then try installing the cd. or if you want to try the driver only and not all the extra software...

1st uninstall the driver and software and do not connect the printer. until it asks you.

2nd put the factory cd for the printer but do not let it run automatically. cancel the installation.

3 you go to the control panel add printer, etc. have look for the driver and say "have cd" or go to the cd drive where the vista folder is holding the driver file.

i know this can be tidious but its kinda old school for installing a driver instead of letting the cd do it automatically have the computer find the driver on the cd first. dont add all the extra software. try it and see if it works then try to add all the extra software.

personaly i think sometimes the vista updates stuff where it screws with the drivers and then your computer does not know what its looking for. i hope this kinda helps. sorry for your mishap.

have you also tried connecting to all the usb slots?

Unable to reinstall DVD backups after HP SYSTEM RECOVERY failed

Code "purple" means you and your computer are done. It is an unrecoverable error that means you need a new system. However, I have found a couple of postings that claim to know a fix. I can not verify these methods, I do not own a HP or other type of prefab PC (custom is the only way to go). Anyway, here are the links, good luck.

If you really can't access the recovery section and you really want to format your PC, then put on the Vista CD and reboot. Boot using the Vista CD and paritition or format your hard drive then install the O.S. etc.

Get the vista disc and put it in, you can perform a system restore again with the cd / dvd even thought the system restore didn't complete last time.

Copy files from old computer and transfer to new computer

Although Vista comes with an Easy File Transfer Wizard it is not compatible with Windows 98.

You will need a CD burning program such as Nero Burning Suite or Creative CD Writer or here is a link to a FREE one.
