Hello,

I understand that notebooks boots into safemode, but when you are trying to reinstall the OS it is freezing, let me assist you in this regard.

As the notebook is frezing while installing the OS, first we need to check the Harddrive.

In DV6000 notebooks, there will be option to do Harddrive selft test.

1 Restart the notebook
2. At HP logo screen keep pressing the F10 key to open BIOS.
3. In the BIOS you can find the Diagnose Tab. (Select it)
4. Under that click on harddrive self test.

If the test pass, you need another set of recovery disks to Restore notebook to factory settings.

If the test fails, then you need to replace the harddrive.

If the notebook is under warranty, then you will get new harddrive from HP.

You need to start WinXP in Safe Mode. Safe Mode does not load the drivers... you can then open the device manager and delete/uninstall the camera. Press F8 during the boot process (after the hardware logo and before the WinXP logo).

get this from my shared drive(read instructions in there)

and wipe your disk clean (Warning...this process will make you lose all data on disk so be careful, if posible backup all critical data that you need)
once done install WinXP SP3(get a Windows XP cd from a friend or download a pirated copy from net) look for "WinXP SP3 piratebay" in google

when installing WinXP make more than 2 partitions (C, D, E)
Install WinXP in C
once done, let Windows boot and show Desktop
install WinVista or Win7 in D
use E for saving your critical data

HP 520 Notebook. Shuts down before installing new OS.


I agree a clean install is always the better, fresh start J
OK it sounds like missing drivers, what you have to do is create a new installation CD that will load the drivers for your laptop as it boots. I haven’t try this method with windows 7, but I know it works well with Windows XP. Try and create a new Windows XP CD with the drivers see: http://unattended.msfn.org/unattended.xp/view/web/35/
The start a new installation with this Windows XP CD and reformat you computer, after that you can do a new upgrade to windows 7

Acer aspire one not booting


your laptop has been turned off without shutting down. all your laptops registries are probably messed up. the easiest way to do is to reformat your computer or restore it to factory settings. unless you have some important files that you cant afford to lose.
