Cannot install any os in a hp pavilion dv5 - 1120ev

Hi, my friend has an hp pavilion dv5 - 1120ev, he had top, pre installed windows vista. He asked me that if I could make the computer faster, so I told him, of course, you need to change OS to do this, you must install windows 7, I said. So I took with me, put windows 7 dvd, boot from the cd/dvd drive, deleted all partitions, even the recovery partition (I didn't know it came without a copy of disk recovery tools), partitioned the drive into 2 two new partitions, formatted and continued to install the os on the primary. The dvd that I used has all versions of windows 7, 32 and 64 bit, tried all, it gets stuck on the process of expansion, to 0% files (only with one version, she was 14%, I can't remember which), and it gives me the "windows cannot install required files. the file may be corrupted or missing. "Sure... error code: 0 x 80070017. Then, I tried with another dvd with winodws 7 ultimate, same thing. I also tried with the disc do not split into two, one partition, just in case windows is having problems expanding all of the files, just in case, same thing. Then I thought it was a bios thing, he had to be updated, which to be honest there cause of the version it is F.0C, and in the support section of the hp site, I found a newer version of it, which is also described as necessary for the latest operating system upgrade. I thought wow, that's it, I found it, I will upload a version of it bootable, version bootable cd to be precise, cause the bios version there back does not support booting from usb devices, I'll update it and install the operating system. NOPE. The site has an exe of the bios version. I tried to make a disk bootable with the bios in there (with the option of nero boot disc), I guess that I've not done it right, it could be a solution, but I could use some help on this. I also tried to install windows xp, so that I can install it the update of the bios, the same thing, I get the same error, only with the old blue sceen scholl. Finally, I tried to install windows vista Home premium, just in case the bios for a reason any has only accepted this operating system, no way, same error again! So now I'm not stuck wth no operating system, a pc unusable, nothing can be installed on it. I asked my friend that if the cd/dvd drive had some kind of problem, he said, had no problem with game discs, their loading and installation of games. Please HELP I don't know what to do! Thank you


Nevermind, I managed to solve the problem by taking the hard drive, put it in another phone and the windows installation, then put it back. It worked like charm, so the problem is 100% on the DVD player.

Thank you

    Hi all

    I have trouble to install VMWARE in my laptop that is currently installed with Vista Home Premium 32 Bit. I then decided to go to XP X 64 bit and during the installation, I got a blue screen error message before you even load all files.

    Also please let me know that the reader downloads for XP x 64 for DV5-1203ax


    There are big problems with the drivers for XP 64 bit version, software, etc. This version is not as good as another system supported. I know that the there is a difference which can be very important to you. Then XP 32 bit can contain only 3, 5 GB of Ram and 64-bit version that can take all this chipset. If you need Ram full for any program or any other thing the best choice is to use both systems. One will be XP32 bit and second x 64 Vista or Win7 x 64 which is now in beta test mode.

    Until you do anything please readmy all post, please.

    Don't forget also then before starting the change for dual-boot on you laptop you need to prepare the XP CD. All information on this subject, you will find in the section of downgrade XP 32 bit which is written below in this post.

  • Cannot install any program or make any change on my standard account


    So I recently reinstalled my Windows, the installation was not made by me. This person created one account we'll call user for simplicity, giving him Admin privileges.

    When I noticed it, I created another Admin account and demoted user a standard account. But now, when I tried to install any program, I have some sort of error: "unable to write to the file...". ", I also tried to delete a random file/shortcut and got some kind of error saying that the system is allowed to do this.

    Is there a way to fix this?

    I had rather not my experience of user account with administrative privileges for obvious reason. What I want is just having the system queries the user the Admin password when you install a program, at least, to have access to what is in the directory of the user.

    Thank you for reading this and help me

    An administrator account is a user account which allows you to make changes that will affect other users. Administrators can change security settings, install software and hardware, and access all files on the computer. Administrators can also make changes to other user accounts.

    As you have an administrator account on your system. I suggest you follow the steps below and check if it helps:

    1. right click on the Start button and select (Admin) command prompt.

    2. on the command line type: net user administrator / Active: Yes and press enter on your keyboard.

    This will allow your construction in the administrator account. Restart your computer and log in with the administrator account. Once you are in the Build in Administrator account, you can change the type of original Standard user to administrator account administrator and save it.

    Once you have made the changes successfully, the Build in administrator to disable the account by following the steps below:

    1. right click on the Start button and select (admin) command prompt.

    2. on the command line type: net user administrator / Active: no and press enter on your keyboard.

    This will disable the build in the administrator account. Restart and log in with your user account.

  • How to install a printer port parallel port Pavilion dv5 Notebook usb

    When trying to install my printer HP DeskJet 610C Parallel Port on my HP Pavilion dv5-1235dx Notebook PC with Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit, I followed the instructions given by the HP Support about two years back.

    I connected the two devices with a parallel port cable / USB. The PC loaded and confirmed the correct driver. (On the advice of sites on the Internet, I made repeated attempts to install the printer carefully, to no avail).

    Then my deliverance, the Print, the printer statement invariably prints two copies of what appears to be "gibberish" in two lines at the beginning of the worksheet. Subsequently, she picks up and ejects then 6-8 sheets of white paper.

    Any help to resolve this abnormal situation will be welcome and appreciated.

    I would add that the printer works normally when connected in parallel to an old Notebook Compaq Armada 1750 (XP OS). In this case also, the parallel/USB worked as in the PC Pavilion, above.

    Hi khalidem,

    Looks like you have a communication problem with the cables from the printer. Have you tried a new parallel to USB cable or adapter?

  • My (Pavilion Entertainment Notebook dv6-6091nr) cannot install any type of game on the internet

    I have adobe, I have internet 9, I have java, but whenever I try to download a game called World of tanks, Battlefield Heroes or Battle for Wesnoth to my son (they have strange tastes in the game, I realize that). Whenever I have download (via normal or TORRENT file), it says "Windows cannot find the right content, here is a list of programs to help you find what your looking to dethrone" excetera, although you will not hear content, it could be something else. But it always happens when I open the file, always, I save the file for download, and it ALWAYS happens. I have no idea what's going on, but worked when I tried called RegWork (which i immedietly UN installed).

    I have kasperby security software, is this what is causing the problems?

    What are you - running win 7?

    If the programs are not for win 7 to use compatibility mode

    Or look for the correct version of the program...

    > .exe

    Are you sure that windows does not hide the file extension (you can set it in windows..)

    Also security software can block executable files, as I don't believe in your case.

    PS maybe you should be happy that you can not install these games for your son :-)

  • Satellite P300-156 - cannot install any OS


    I had a P300-156 for a while.
    It was fine until recently, when the DHCP client stopped workin and wouldn't start.

    So I tried to restore from disk and had no dice with that try.
    So I tried to recover from HARD drive again once any chance the laptop keeps freezing after installation.

    So I tried to install Ubuntu on the laptop but still the same problem, said linux 'buffer I/O sdo error "?
    I'm not sure what in other words, it has however managed to wipe the entire drive.

    And I can not install XP because it does not find the HARD drive.

    The situation is so that I don't have any of the recovery methods and that you can not install another OS.

    Guys im really confused on the topic of what to do here, so if anyone can help please I need.

    Hi James

    I'm not sure if your HARD drive is dead or not, but you should know that your installation of Win XP does not recognize the HDD too if the SATA driver has not been included.
    The fact is that your P300 was equipped with the SATA HDD controller and the SATA driver is needed and if you want to install an operating system.

    The SATA driver is part of the Intel Matrix Storage Manager.
    So if you want to install XP on your P300, you must first include the SATA drive in the XP installation CD.
    This can be done very easily using a free software called nLite.

    This Toshiba doc would be helpful for you because if describes step by step how to include a driver SATA;

  • Cannot install ANY video game on Windows 7 (and other problems) _

    No more than 5 MINUTES after starting my new desktop computer the first time, I started having these problems:

    (1) when I try to install a game, I get an error message that says "cannot continue the installation. SAMPLE.exe file missing. "Soon after, a message in the lower right corner will slide upward, saying 'virus Trojan in SAMPLE.exe. The file has been quarantined. When I disable the antivirus software, I can install the game but I can't run it. It hangs after 5 minutes, and then a box pop up appears and says "cannot find the file SAMPLE.exe.

    All the video games I've tried to install are compatible with windows 7.

    (2) when I try to make changes to programs or certain parameters, a box pop up appears and says "You must be logged in as Administrator", when I am logged on as administrator.

    (3) Windows 7 will reorganize randomly my desktop icons.

    (4) Windows Explorer starts that it self.

    (5) sometimes programs will not download to the location I specified. He decided to put it somewhere else.

    I agree with KSib, that having these types of problems right out of the box is ridiculous.  I recommend you contact the PC manufacturer for warranty support to get this corrected. Mike - Engineer Support Microsoft Answers

  • HP pavilion DV7-6c10so: cannot install HP Quick Launch on HP Pavilion DV7-6c10so

    I am really pulling my hair out on this one. Recently I swapped my brothers HARD drive into his laptop, and with that we decided to do a clean installation of windows. Evrything went smooth and well with the excavation and activate Windows. But I ran to a problem with the installation of some software and drivers HP. All drivers except 2 would install properly. Once, it was a hassel to install were the drivers Bluetooth and wi - fi. That's what happened when I tried to launch the exe to install:

    A window opens saying some information on im about to install software. I press next here.

    in the next step, I accept the EULA and press Next.

    Then begins the extraction process and once it has been done the window close.

    After this a windows installer window appears saying: preparing for installation...

    This was followed by: Please wait while Windows install configures the installation...

    During this stage, the progress bar fills upp to 100% and the window closes, and that's all. No message telling me the installation was a success or a failure. no error code or message. If I check the Device Manager I can be that the driver is not installed. I solved this problem by right-clicking on the device and then choose install driver and then find the extracted folder and choose the driver in there.

    But here's the tricky part and my problem, I need the software of quick launch buttons asswell but Installer is broken here as well. but since this isn't a driver I can't operate by itself.

    I let the Installer do its thing and all that with the drivers just sort of stops. No messagege not nothing. The program does not appear in the Control Panel, the task bar or in active processes (yes I restarted the computer). However I find it under Add/Remove programs in the Control Panel, so the computer thinks its installed. the same for HP software executives, but it is not as important.

    If I go to the extracted installation location I get a lage Setup window that says welcome to the quick launch HP Setup Wizard. Here, I choose to remove it ocr fix/repair it. I tried manny time to fix but I doesent help. I uninstalled and then installed using this installer manny thus times. Nothing helps. but atleasst with this installer, I get a quick launch of HP has been successfully installed message, yet it doesent work.

    what I tried:

    I installed each updates windows and .net.

    I tried to install an older version (for software farmeworks and quick launch).

    I reformatted and reinstalled the computer once again to see if the problem was caused by windows.

    go to the installation folder and run there (only for software frameworks).

    News of the computer:

    model: HP Pavilion DV7-6c10so

    Shipping os OS: Windows 7 Home premium x 64

    After reformatting operating system: Windows 7 Home Premium x 64

    I'm in the desperaste need to get this working because it's my brothers computer and it needs today to come back later and I said wrong I work just like before.

    Sorry for the bad English everybody!


    In this case, it may be worth trying the following.

    Uninstall the current version QLB and restart.

    Download the version from the following link and save the installation program.

    Use software such as 7-Zip manually extract the contents of the Setup program, and then run the setup.exe routine (20 KB) as an administrator since the extraction folder.

    This can or can not give an indication that it completed - if not, leave it for 5 minutes, then restart.

    If it still does not work, check if the routines are present in C:\Program Files (x 86) \Hewlett-Packard\HP quick launch area and let me know - I'm going to work but to hope to be back within the hour.

  • Cannot install Laserjet 4 on xp HP Pavilion computer.

    I try to install my HP Laserjet 4 on my HP Pavilion computer.  I bought two new, years ago, but they were never together until now.  The computer was in my office and the printer was at home.  The printer was working on a different HP Pavilion for a long time and it now works when it is connected to other computers, so I know it's good.

    I downloaded ljJ632en.exe on the site of HP drivers.  I ran that file and unpacked the 29 files to c:\lj632 and reported it was done.  The printer is still not recognized by Notepad or Word.  I tried to restart and did the download and he ran three times, sometimes with some afterwords restarts and sometimes without.  Should I sent the files downloaded to another location?  Is there something else I'm missing?

    The operating system is Windows XP, Version 2002, Service Pack 3.

    I'm puzzled.

    Thank you, Magali.  Your solution did not work because the Panel did not show my printer in printers and faxes.  Your answer has led me to try the function of adding new hardware and it worked.  In case someone else needs to use it, here are the steps:

    Control Panel

    Adding hardware (opens the Add Hardware Wizard)
    Add a new hardware device
    Find and install automatically
    If the printer is not found, click Next
    Use the following port: LPT1
    Highlight in the left for HP
    Highlight as part of right for HP Laserjet 4
    Keep the existing driver

    Hi, thanks for the comments.

    I tried the method, but it has not fixed the problem.

    With respect to method 2, I bought the laptop with Windows 8 by-installed, so no DVD with the software.  I made contact with the distributor of the computer (Samsung), but the first reaction was to get a new version of Windows 8.1 and as they say, the unique language of Windows 8, which has been installed, although the real is a 'gift' and therefore they cannot provide the DVD.  I contacted both Microsoft and there response also had to buy a new license.  I can not fully used this problem as the update seems to be 'corrupted '.

    I noticed that the Proxy has been set to auto detect the Proxy settings.  I turned it off and some of the patches installed.  However, most hotfixes do not install and the same issue occur when trying to install.

    I always do if something goes wrong.

    Kind regards.
