Crushed thing reformatting virus boot on HP Pavilion dv5
So my computer crashed whenever I used it so I decided it was time to reformat. (don't care about losing just want some things to be fixed)
Power the computer off voltage, then turn it back on again, put the windows disc 7 to and started from there. He was going well until at halfway through the installation, he had a fit and decided to stop working. I turned the computer back again and now whenever I turn it on it is not pass in front of a black screen with the mouse pointer. I hit ESC at startup and it came with a list of options: System information, system diagnostics, boot device options, configuration of the BIOS and the system recovery.
I'll try some of them, while I'm waiting for answers, but please help the sooner, the better. Thank you.
It is impossible to say really - a HARD drive usually takes between 3 and 5 years old, but still, I've known their failure after a few months. How old was your HARD drive?

You can download and run a full scan of the system using the Microsoft Safety Scanner and check if this helps to eliminate the Virus.
Microsoft safety scanner
The data files that are infected must be cleaned only by removing the file completely, which means that there is a risk of data loss.
You can also consider to download Microsoft Security Essentials, which offers protection in real time for your home or small office PCs.

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.
I operate bluetooth. but it seems that I hit dead ends and nothing done yet to get bluetooth working on windows 64-bit 10.
I tried the two drivers of bluetooth of the page of the official product of the hp driver "sp50180" & "sp52533".
I tried running both in compatibility mode for xp sp3 and windows 7 without success, they did not
"sp52533" generates the error "bluetooth hardware must be put on run this installation package ' but the thing is that I have yet to see/find bluetooth under devices so I can enable it
'sp50180' outputs error "this application cannot run on this pc" as I have said - I tried compatibility mode for xp sp3 and windows 7. It doesn't work anymore
under c:\SWSetup\SP50180 there is 'Inst.exe' and 'BTW.msi '.
the two let me install the driver/software but it does not work, I still have not found bluetooth under > devices in the settings even after install/install these
would be very grateful of the solution/fix/workaround to resolve what to get my bluetooth for windows 64-bit 10.
I don't want to go back to windows 7 just to get the work of bluetooth. I just want to use my bluetooth with my laptop speakers.
According to the page of specifications of product for your laptop, it doesn't come with built in bluetooth network.
If so, this feature would have been listed as well as WLAN 802.11b/g/n wireless connectivity specifications.
Then I looked to the top of the model wireless network card that your laptop is in the parts list...
It does not list a separate bluetooth module and adapter WiFi Atheros AR9285 802.11 b/g/n (1 x 1) (more people) it is the map that you see listed under the category of peripheral cards Network Manager, if not an adapter without wireless/bluetooth combination.
So I would say that you get the message "bluetooth hardware must be on" because there is a total absence of the bluetooth hardware, which, according to all that I have written, makes sense as to why you can not bluetooth works.

Hi there @Rain2
Welcome to the Forums of HP Support! It's a good place to find the help you need, so many other users, the HP experts and other members of the support staff.
I understand that you get an error message related to: C:\Users\Owner\AppData\Roaming\explorer.exe
I recommend you to check your system for viruses, malware and other malicious software. See the following for more information on certain measures that take
See the following I found on the Microsoft forums.

I have a HP Pavilion dv5-1050en, the problem is that this does not work, when I press the power button lights up for 1 second and turn off the lights. I was told to distribution costs 300 euros! It's too much, I'd fix sal, can someone help me with an idea how to make cheaper?
So neither the hard reset or resetting the memory had an effect on your question?
The next thing to check is the power supply. Follow the steps in this document to troubleshoot the battery, adapter and motherboard. Be sure to post the result.
If you are not able to determine what part gives you the questions using the above document, then it is very likely that the original technician is correct and the laptop will have to be repaired.
You may inquire about a repair by contacting HP Support. If you are in the USA / Canada, the number is 1-800-474-6836. If you are in another part of the world, you visit HP's Support around the world to find the coordinates for your region.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask. I wish you a nice day!
Product: Pavilion dv5-2035dx
OS: Dual boot Linux Mint 16 and Windows 7 64-bit (no HP recovery partition) edition
HP recovery discs: I have them, but cannot use them because the DVD laser does not (CD only)
- While in the normal conditions of use, screen has suddenly had vertical lines black and gray
- After reboot, the computer lights up and the fan works, but the screen is black
- CTRL key flashes white light: 2 flashes, pause and repeat (BIOS corruption)
Hello, I'm recovering from the corruption of BIOS, hoping that it is not a failed mobo.
To 1.11 step, I don't get the "HP system BIOS Update Utility" screen. Instead, I get this:
1. is there an easy way to get this .exe on a USB? (I tried 3 computers and 3 cards USB, WTH then?)
2. If not, can I just unzip and create a bootable USB in another program by copy/pasting the BIOS file?
3. is there anything else I should try before flashing the BIOS?
Thanks in advance for your help. ^^
UPDATE: the "BIOS error" was in fact the video card that failed due to repeated overheating. The repair shop, replace the video card and repaired the overheating problem (I don't ask how), and my computer is like new.
For those who have a similar with their computer, my error "BIOS" problem (as it is coded by flashing lights of my computer) turns out to be a video card has failed.
The repair shop, said that what happens when computers overheat frequently, which mine did. Thus, they have changed the video card and solved the overheating problem, and my computer is in working condition.
The laptop is Hp pavilion dv5. I have no recovery discs. The notebook exploded when I downloaded the updates from kaspersky.
Contact HP and ask them to send you in vista recovery disks to reinstall the operating system back as it was when you bought it
they do it for a nominal cost of $
or press F11 at startup:
Restore the PC to its original state with the HP Recovery Manager if Windows Vista is not accessibleIf the PC does not start under Windows, it may still be possible to use the HP recovery disk to restore the computer to its original state. The Recovery Manager can be started during the boot process by following the steps below.
- Press on the button / stop to start the PC and press the f11 key when the standard BIOS guests appear on the black screen.
NOTE: By pressing the f11 key at startup on a computer with an image factory HP will start the system recovery process, even if the message is not displayed.
- If the HP Recovery Manager can access the recovery on the hard drive partition, you receive a to back up user files before you start the recovery prompt. Follow the instructions.
- If the HP Recovery Manager cannot access the hard disk to resolve system errors, you need to use the recovery disk custom that you created to recover the hard disk to its original state.
- If you have not created the custom recovery disk, or disks are damaged, you can order a replacement of HP recovery CD.
- When the Recovery Manager starts, follow the instructions of recovery step by step , shown above.
Try this to solve your problem instead of relocation:
try a restore of the system before this happened
If necessary do in safe mode
Using the F8 method:
- Restart your computer.
- When the computer starts, you will see your computer hardware are listed. When you see this information begins to tap theF8 key repeatedly until you are presented with theBoot Options Advanced Windows Vista.
- Select the Safe Mode option with the arrow keys.
- Then press enter on your keyboard to start mode without failure of Vista.
- To start Windows, you'll be a typical logon screen. Connect to your computer and Vista goes into safe mode.
- Do whatever tasks you need and when you are done, reboot to return to normal mode.

Your model is without bluetooth.

Recently, I tried to do a reset to factory my laptop. I used the recovery partition by pressing F11. He traveled all the HP software reinstall it but then would randomly turns off when you try to reinstall windows. I tried the process of recovery time and time again and got the same result. The recovery discs are not available for my computer as well.
My product name and number: HP Pavilion dv5 - 1127cl
Operating system: Windows Vista 64-bit
Error message: Windows could not complete the installation. To install Windows on this computer, run the Setup again.
Any input on this would be a good thing, I was very frustrated trying to get this to work. You wouldn't think your recovery would fail, seems to be a very important option to the computer!

I have a Pavilion dv5 eo from 1185 that won't boot to the top.
Did a hard reset.
When I turn it on the num and caps light flashes 1 time, then he have 4 sec with no flicker, then again in the same way.
And this continues to move forward that there is power on the system.
What is the problem, and what is there to do?
Thanks in advance
I consider the search to replace the laptop. The fault could be the CPU or the motherboard itself.
The cost of replacement, unless you do it yourself, could put your costs in more than 50% of the current value of the laptop.
Well, until recently, I found an old hp laptop to my father and he let me keep. I know he has had some problems in the past, so I went online and found ways on how to fully factory reset, I tried many tricks and tips, but none match the menu or options. What I'm trying to understand, is how to CORRECTLY and accurately factory reset Pavilion dv5, which runs on Windows 7 Home premium.
Here are the different methods you can use to reset the PC.
If none of those working, you will need to order a set of recovery disc for the specific model dv5 you have.
I have a HP Pavilion dv5-2132dx laptop. The hard drive has completely failed and needs to be replaced, but I can't understand how to access the hard drive. There is no screws on the Panel, and he said HP Protectsmart on the back. I need a video on how to do it.
The following guide will show you how (#59 page):
Several manuals for your machine are available on the following link:
Hey all, I recently formatted my laptop, a HP Pavilion DV5 - 2040ca and I noticed that (even after installing the drivers), it does not display the current volume/brightness when it is changed via the shortcut keys associated with the F - keys. I was wondering which driver will enable this function on my laptop, because it would be good to have.
Thanks in advance.
For your laptop, the screen on a brightness/volume is provided by HP MediaSmart SmartMenu - you can download this from the link below.
Note: You should have at least 1 other MediaSmart software installed (any) before installing this.
When the installation is complete, restart the laptop.
