Having problems with your HP Pavilion dv4000 Notebook ?

Black screen I have my son's hp dv4000 laptop. It won't go to desktop. It goes to black screen with a PXE error on one line and a media failed error on the next line and the it repeats the same information over and over again. I can play a dvd in the computer fine, by pressing and holding the Quickplay key. I have done the harddrive test from the f12(blue screen) start it says hard drive failed, but I think it's wrong because I can still watch movies. can anyone help. the computer is 2 years old


Answers :

Go into bios and disable pxe.save settings.restart
This model has built in multimedia that does not need the operating\015\012system (or hard disk) to play movies and music. So it probably is\015\012a bad hard drive. Laptop HDs are notorious for failure. \015\012That being said, it doesn't take an expert to replace a hard drive and\015\012reload the OS and you can get one pretty cheap (<$50) on eBay. \015\012DO NOT get a Hitachi or IBM though - my pref is Western Digital or\015\012Fujitsu. You will also need the OS disks which you may not have\015\012as many systems are putting the install disks on the 1st HD\015\012sector. You can usually order disks cheap from HP if you have\015\012your purchase info. If you can downlaod and burn an iso image to\015\012CD from another computer, the "Ultimate Boot Disk" (search Google) is a\015\012great free testing CD.
