Can Pavilion dv9407nr HARD drive failure - I still get the HP recovery discs?

After reading many posts, it is clear that my HARD drive has failed and I need to replace.  I created my own recovery disks, but apparently it will not work on a replacement hard drive.  Right now, I would like to know if I can still order a set of HP recovery disks.  If I can't, between the cost of a new player software and the o/s I'm probably better to throw everything and buy something new.

I called 800-HPINVENT and was able to order the repair disks.

  • Partition on HARD drive disappeared after formatting using the product recovery disc

    My laptop came with a partitioned hard drive C and D drives.

    After formatting my hard drive using the recovery disk of the supplied product with my computer, I don't have any option to partition the HARD drive, only for the 1. 46 GB for some recommended backup, and the remainder became the C drive.
    D drive disappeared. Now, when I put the USB ant in my laptop, it reads as D drive.
    Can you please help, I need to have my hard drive partitioned into C and D drives, and flash memory can be any subsequent letter.

    Hello Richard

    Is it so complicated to tell us which model of laptop you have exactly?
    Anyway, when you use recovery Toshiba you cannot lose score. After using the recovery media, you'll have to factory settings and the structure of the HARD disk will be the same as on the first day.
    Something like that is definitely not possible.

    > I don't have no option to partition the HARD disk
    This option doesn't exist. On some older models of laptops, just an option to set up the first score ability there.
    After the first start, you can go to disk management and activate the second partition. All that s!

    Please tell me what model of laptop have you then I can tell you more about the partitions.

  • Hard drive has been corrupted and replaced it with the new hard drive but couldn't get the windows genuine back 8

    Original title: recovery of original windows 8

    When I bought the new device, it was loaded with windows 8 but a few days before my hard drive has been corrupted and replaced it with the new hard drive but could not get the real Windows back 8.

    Please help me to get my windows genuine 8 back so I could get additional updates downloaded.

    Hello Vishal,

    Welcome to the Microsoft community. I appreciate your efforts to resolve the issue. I will certainly help you with the problem you are experiencing.

    If you purchased a computer with installed OEM Windows 8 on it, there could be a sticker on the Tower, or in the back (in the case of a laptop) with the product key to this topic. If there is no sticker, he can be preinstalled on your system BIOS.

    See the suggestions posted by Andre Da Costa replied on March 7, 2013.

    In addition to this, see:

    Product key lost or misplaced (certificate of authenticity) for Windows

    If the problem persists, you can contact the manufacturer of the hardware for the same thing and check.

    Hope this information was useful.

    How to reinstall Vista

    Contact the manufacturer of the laptop computer and ask them to send you to vista recovery disks to reinstall the operating system back as it was when you bought it

    they do it for a nominal cost of $

    also ask them if you have a recovery partition on your hard drive to get back to the way you bought

    you would normally press F8, F9, F10 or F11 or Alt + F10 or 0 to start to start the recovery process according to the manufacturer

    Ask them of the exact key sequence

    or borrow a vista microsoft dvd; not a HP, Acer recovery disk etc

    Make sure that you borrow the correct 32-bit or 64-bit microsoft dvd to your computer

    they contain all versions of vista

    This is the product key that determines which version of vista is installed

  • HP Pavilion Touchsmart - hard drive failure

    My hardly used HP Pavilion Touchsmart is extremely slow and even a simple operation like 'save' used to take hours. I did a check of HDD on login and this resulted in the following result:

    Hard drive short DST: FAILURE


    Product ID: D8Q11EA #ABU

    Earlier on, I had a startup problems, so I gave her the laptop for curries that have indicated that they add a new hard drive.

    So not sure that the problem has been resolved, but I have a hard drive failure.

    How do I rectify this? All solutions?

    Thank you.

    This problem could be due to an Application or a driver conflict, virus issues, corruptions of files due to incompatible applications, incorrect judgments, update failures due to conflicts, mounted sudden power so portable, sudden falls etc...

    HP will offer a replacement HDD if the laptop warranty is Active, otherwise you can buy a SATA hard drive in a nearby retail store

    Please make sure that you get at least equal as long as the original one in order to use recovery disks. If you need you can buy a bigger, but not smaller hard drive capacity. For example, if you have a 500 GB hard drive you can improve it to 750 GB hard drive, but not 320 GB hard drive

    Please try the troubleshooting below indicated once the steps:

    Step 01. Remove the battery and unplug the power adapter AC.

    Step 02. Press and hold the power button for more than 30 seconds

    Step 03. Plug the AC power adapter / (leave the battery for now)

    Step 04. Press the power button and check if the unit is operating normally

    If the steps listed above is not enough, then you can try reinstalling the hard disk on your laptop

    If the problem persists again please Contact HP if your HP laptop is under warranty, HP could replace the hard drive and provide recovery media to restore the operating system to factory after the replacement (if you have not yet created recovery disks/USB support)

    Note: Back up all personal data on an external drive if possible. Otherwise, you can connect the HDD defective via SATA USB adapter with another PC or a PC even after replacing the HARD drive & put in place of the operating system and try to copy / retrieve files.

  • hard drive failure and replacement of the laptop pavilion dv6-1000

    It seems that the hard drive has failed in the laptop.  When I run a test gives me a message 3f0 and hard drive does not exist.  Tried to start the repair system and the operating system not found.  Would fix with the image of the system.  No found boot device.  Conclusion: new hard drive required.  The laptop drive is a seagate momentus 320 GB 5400,6.    Do I have to replace it with a new seagate or can I use a Western Digital with the same 320 GB, 5400 rpm?  Thank you in advance.


    WD should be fine and if you want to use a disc 7 200 RPM faster seek time (at a small cost of battery life between charges) you can go with this too.


  • Warranty void installed new HARD drive, but I still have the original?


    I recently installed a new 200GB Hitachi HARD 7200 RPM drive on my laptop, I know that my warranty will be cancelled, but as I still have the original HDD safe and sound, the guarantee will still defend if say... the technicians were to come round to fix my laptop due to an unrelated issue, but see that the HARD drive has been upgraded; they will always fix the laptop even after I show them as the original? It's a long shot I know, but the 40 GB of HARD disc that came with the laptop only leave me little room after installation of Vista.

    At my upgrade COMPLETELY canceled my claim to the guarantee? Even if I just say... come back and install the original HARD drive in my system, just before the technicians come to my house? But that would be the same as if say... I just show the technician the original HDD on arrival while having the HDD Upgrade inside the laptop.

    A bit confusing, I know, but I'm in a quandary, because the guys from Toshiba are set to come around my place to watch my laptop under warranty, and I fear that they will fix my phone because I upgraded to a better HD and faster.

    Thank you very much, I hope someone answers.

    Hi Mohin

    I would like to try to clarify your question.
    The guarantee will be cancelled, if you you disassemble the laptop.
    I imagine that the laptop was equipped with a HDD slot at the bottom of the unit and you have to delete only one screw to remove the small cache connector HARD drive. Am I wrong?
    So in this case the upgrade of components such as the memory or the HARD drive will not avoid the warranty.

    But it s a good idea to keep the old HDD that were shipped with the laptop.

    Best regards

  • How can I get the free recovery discs? I use Windows 7 OS and have lost my HP Photosmart driver

    I "lost" the driver for my HP Photosmart printer.  The previous responses indicated that free recovery disks are possible.   If so, how?

    Recovery discs are for the recovery of the computer rather than a printer and can usually be obtained from the manufacturer of the computer, usually with a small handling.  For a printer, you can simply go to the HP support site and download the software and drivers (if they have several options, select "Full Feature software and drivers")

  • Where can I get the Vista recovery disc - Satellite P205D-S8802

    Hey guys,.

    Last year, I bought my Toshiba Satellite P205D-S8802
    I got no CD Recorvy, but if I want to do the training, the HARD disk I need the disk
    Where can I get the disc?
    I have the original Windows Vista Home premium (the button on the laptop is a Microsoft label)

    Thank you for the help


    To me, it seems that Satellite P205D-S8802 is a series of portable US.
    You should be able to order the recovery of the ASP disk in your country.
    Otherwise, you need an original Vista from Microsoft and the pilots could be downloaded from the American pilot site.
    But note; You may not use the Vista serial number which is placed at the bottom.
    It belongs to the preinstalled Vista and it s version just an OEM

  • A way to get the Photoshop CS3 'upgrade edition' of failed hard drive? I still have the discs.

    I've been using Photoshop CS3 since it was released originally, and it is quite satisfactory for my needs. However, my system drive crashed recently, and although I have the installation disc to reinstall, the version I have is an 'upgrade' which is based on the presence of a previous version. I don't have the CD to install the previous version, wonder if anyone has any suggestions on how to get my reinstalled Photoshop. I can't really afford to buy the service cloud, and they seem to no longer support older versions.

    You must either o have the old version installed or its serial number.  Without any of them there not that you can do without the assistance of Adobe help - who will tell you that they do not support their older products.

  • Flow 11: Can I partition my drive Flash Stick HP to create a recovery disc

    I have a HP USB 3.O 128 GB Flashdrive. He said that it is compatible to Windows 8. I don't know whether or not to use NTFS.  I can't find this information. Although the computer file system is NTFS, the flash drive file system matter? Can I use a card SDHC Sandisk FAT-32 for example? I have one of these institutions. Can I partition the 128 GB Flashdrive HP for this purpose for my recovery disk or do I need a dedicated flash player which is only used for recovery? Thank you.

    HP PC laptop flow 11 model: 11-d010nr, product number: K2L95UA #ABA, file system NTFS, Intel Celeron CPU N2840 2.16 GHz, RAM 2.00 GB, 64-bit x 64 based processor, 8.1 with Bing Windows operating system, HP USB 3.0 flash drive 128 GB, Sandisk Ultra SDHC 32 GB FAT 32 memory card

    You need a flash dedicated for this drive. The process will resume the entire drive by default - and format it however it requires. You probably have a 16 GB flash drive. Open Recovery Manager and it tells you what is the required size.

    Set no. recovery disks. A is not an element of guarantee. Drives HP sets sold are for people that have inadvertently done what you were doing.

    The set of recovery disks is not expensive. The last I heard a whole totalled around US $20.00.
