    I have an HP Pavilion dv6735el bought in february 2008. Sometimes, during start up (not reboot, just start up from "cold") the HH led freezed and stayed always turned on. So I decided to use the DVD to recover the OS as it was originally, and I had that error. I think in my case it can be due to HD failure. If you have any other're welcome.

If you got this error message when you tried to replace or upgrade the HD, take a look at the hard drive you took out of the computer. Look at it closely. Is there a "stretcher bar" across the contacts? Take the stretcher bar off of the old HD and put it on the new HD. I did so after much consternation and had no more error messages. I do not thank HP for the aggravation the lack of info on this on their support website, or the fact that the HD had to be replaced well before its time was "due".

SOURCE: When get to factory image

Please make sure that the cables of the hard drive are properly connected. Try to reconnect the cables. There should be 2 cables connected to your hard drive, one is data cable and the other is power. See if this works. If not, you may want to reformat the drive for this to get resolved. Make sure to backup your files, you will have to connect the drive to another computer to do this.

Error 0x400110020000100A after hard drive replacement

One of your self-created disks may have an error. I recommend that you contact the manufacturer of your computer to obtain system reload/restore disks directly from them. Often, depending on manufacturer, these are free or very low cost, such as cost+shipping ~$15-$25.

Yes I have a serious problem, I've just back up all my files on my external hard drive & when I try to restore my laptop to factory settings, I got this error message: 0x400110020000100A. Please tell...

Use an original OS disc to format your computer though computer manufacturer no longer provide such disc because they usually provide a recovery disc that has all of the factory installed software on it. If formating your harddrive didn't work this indicate that the problem is with your harddrive and you need to replace it. Please specify the brand of your computer, are you using windows XP, Vista or windows 7 and is this a laptop or a desktop computer?
Hope this help.

Dear sir, i have a dell inspiron 5010. when i enter my back up dvd, it shows error as 0x400110020000100a. what do i do now? please respond....

This is normally caused by trying to use a recovery disc on a hard drive that has been wiped of the original OS or where a new hard drive has been installed. The recovery DVD is specific to the particular laptop and will not repair an installation of windows if one does not esist.
Did you change the hard drive at all?

You should try using a copy of a windows CD and use that to do a repair install, inseerting the COA number when asked

The error message can also point to a damaged hard drive, or damaged connector between the hard drive and the motherboard.

When i start my pc,it displays operating system not found

Go into the BIOS and see if the hard drive is recognized in there. If it is then try restoring it with the recovery disks. If the error still comes up then that means the hard drive is bad and would need to be replaced. Also if the hard drive is not recognized in the BIOS then that means the hard drive is still bad.

Unable to restore back to factory image read error

Are you using Factory CD/DVD or Made from utlity Disks or from hard drive utility option.
This seems to be a CD read error.
I found the same error code need help for posted for HP, Compaq, Gateway, ETC.
ALL new setups with the MAKE RECOVERY DISK UTILITY and NO factory disks.
Factory recovery disks are available for $60 and up from manufacturers.
Other option is Install Retail OS - get drivers from manufacturer - Install software you want to use.
Other option is expensive but reliable.
Factory option would be for your system only.

Error : 0x400110020000100A

Look carefully at the hard drive that you are replacing. When you take it out of the [mine is a Compaq f750us] computer you might see, for want of a better term, a "STRETCHER" attached to the contacts/connectors, remove it. Put it on the NEW hard drive, put hard drive into computer. Try it again. I did and I did NOT get the "error" code! Why because the HD is now CONNECTED...touches the contacts..

Recovery Error

Do recovery again, when it asks you to insert disc 2, take out disc one and close the tray. Do not put the disc 2 yet. If you can see the error message again, then it is a RAM issue. You need to reseat the Memory module and try to do the recovery again.

If you closed the tray then no error message came up, it would be an issue with your recovery disc and order for a new one. You can contact Toshiba to have the recovery replaced due to corrupt media.

Hope this helps.
