You can do all this using some reliable software such as Reginout. Thanks

Hi, Please check the maximum Hard Disk size the computer supports in the manual specifications of the computer.
Possible solutions:
However, check with the Quick format.

Please try to replace the RAM Modules in the computer and try again.

    Does your computer supports that high volume of HDD? If so, try to unplug RAM and seat it back properly. If problem persists, you need to run a disk cleanup, disk defragmentation and and clean your system using some authentic software such as reginout. Thanks

A1230n ethernet port


If this machine is running XP, or earlier (98, 2000, ME, etc.), beware. It is no longer supported, and hackers will be looking for these machines to infect. I recommend you get a newer machine, or don't try to get on the Internet with this one.

HP Pavilion Media Center a1235c PC Desktop computer error - says Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: <Windows root>\system32\hal.dll Please re-install a copy of...


a very old DT. listed now as RETIRED.
https://support.hp.com/us-en/retired-products
what OS is there now???? seems its XP right?

what disc, be clear.?
I have already used the Operating System disc - Reinstallation CD
HP? set (called the HP media kit cd set)
MS (microsoft have vast discs and all fail lacking a license.
OR FROM FROM VIRUS SITE THAT SELLS cloned DISKS.


LESSON 1, The case COA tag is the HP/MS OEM license
that is useless with any MS you have, its OEM disks, not RETAIL license.
so only HP disks work see? with that COA.
MS does not sell OEM disks, but long ago, MS did XP like that but are rare as hens teeth then and x1000 more rare now... EBAY?

first is F11 restore key
if the HDD is still good and not MS installer slammed.
then the F11 key works, or F10 for old XP.

That function key is boot up hot key
F10 for the oldest. even older have no hot key at all
like win2000?
show stoppers.
no key
no correct disk the HP disk has all the HP chip drivers that work
F10 or F11 HP restore key, will fail if the HDD is dead.
F10 or F11 HP , key fails if someone used MS disks on it in the past.
if this pc is super old, you need a set of disks and a matching coa license,
MS still requires activation on XP and VISTA. on up.
even though XP is now, DEAD at MS

next time say what OS is on the system the
show photos of the 1st CD. and magic happens, we go UNBLIND.

if running XP consider upgrading it?

After a long time trying to start my computer has a blank screen that says "system failure insert recovery disk" I have recovery disk that I made when the unit was new. but they do not do anything.


Try rebooting the computer with the back up disk inserted in the slot. This should work because the computer looks at all the disk drives when it reboots. And should default to the backup disk. :)

Hp a1230n heating


Robert, I recommend you to open the chassis cover and check if there is any obstruction of any air vent. Meanwhile, if you can hear a loud fan spinning of the CPU heatsink, you might have to replace the thermal paste, the instruction http://www.techpowerup.com/articles/overclocking/134.

If the problem still persist, don forget to come back here. I will try my best to help you.
