Having problems with your HP Pavilion dv8235nr Notebook ?

Xp won't load to hard Disk

\015 I believe it is more complicated than that. I have two of these DV8235 computers. I was able to install Xp on the other computer clean as a whistle. I took that hard drive and installed it in the one that won't load Windows. I get the message of Windows config system is missing or corrupt restart windows with installation disk in place and use R to recover. when I do that and the CD Rom starts , it initally reads the disk and start loading. Sometines at F6 it stops. Sometimes at F2 it stops. Sometimes it starts loading windows and then stops. No matter what hard drive what format what installation, it will not follow all the way thru. this is the only computer I have ever had that would not load a program. I do hear two beeps at post. Even tried to rest the BIOS. It has F24 listed in the setup. Everything in set up looks good, the hard drive checks out. Just won't load windows.\015

Answers :

Your RAM modules could be faulty or needs reseating. If reseating doesn't work, try swapping them around from the other laptop to see if that works.
