The game may be not supported with the current Operating System Perhaps!!! What was your old computer's Operating system? And since the CD-ROM is 14 years old does it has too many scratch?? These days computer CD/DVD drives will never read the disc if they are scratched...

Finally, when you try installing the game, do you encounter any error message? if yes please post it....always remember if your posting your problem in forum, make sure that you provide all information about the issue.

Free recovery disks for hp pavillion zd8000 with windows 7


As far as I know, the original zd8000 operating system is Windows XP. If you have Windows 7 installed, then you need to get Windows 7 disc and its product key. If you need the Windows XP reinstallation media, then you can use HP Windows XP reinstallation disc only (for example: HP Windows XP Professional with SP2 disc).

Hi Everyone , After trying to solve the start up


After this reply you will still not be able to start normally.
The boot to lan is trying to start off an image stored on a server, you normally only see this at a business.
Boot to CD is looking for a bootable CD like the disk used to install Windows.
Boot to hard drive is normal but from your post it appears that it cannot communicate with your hard drive. Normally, when you have hard drives issues, the file is corrupt and at this point the computer complains but is sounds like it just freezes which suggests to me that the controller is gone.
In short, in order to get this working you will probably have to buy a new hard drive and reinstall Windows from CD. Since the version of Windows you have is XP (if you have the disk) and support for it ended almost 3 years ago, you are probably better off just getting a new laptop. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windowsforbusiness/end-of-xp-support

I now believe that my problem could be that my 14 year old golf game requires a Vesa driver which is not on my HP pavilion zd8000 laptop with XP. Although vesa is supplied on the CD golf game I cannot get...


You could try running the game trough DosBox, which is a good way to get older games to run, or VDMSound, which lets you run them in a windows dos shell.
Hope that helps.

Have zd8000, and have purchased a 500gb hrad drive. Does this model allow physical space for the use of parallel drives. Many thanks Jorge


I think you want to partition the 500GB hd.

Yes, you can partition it into smaller logical drives. You need to do this upon installation of the operating system, or use something like, Partition Magic, etc, afterward.

Good Luck

Zd8000 - mobility radeon x600 problem.


Hi,
The ZD8000 is a very nice machine, but if there are no Vista drivers released for it, you're going to be very frustrated by it's performance.
It came loaded with XP right? If it was a factory Vista load, and drivers are missing, the recovery partition should be able to repair the installation. If there's no video driver, I don't know how it's playing the game at all.
In any case, if it came with XP, and you can find no drivers for Vista, your only choice seems to be to return to XP. It's not as visually stimulating, but much faster in general, especialy for this machine.
Hope this helps
Good luck
