Hard drive from another system - Pavilion 790n recovery

This old computer was abandoned and the hard drive is used in another system.

I decided to let children use and have it up and running again, but used a hard drive from an old emachine computer - I thought that I had endured, but could not remove the recovery partition

The installed system Windows & pilots of this partition recovery and work decently, but all the drivers etc are those of the old emachine and not specific HP system drivers installed. (I don't have the HP recovery discs)

I don't know how much he is missing because he is running for a few hours, but I know that I have not all the drivers for the dvd.

Q1: Can I wipe the hard drive clean again and start over, or can I add the drivers I need?

Q2: How can I get all the drivers I need for this system? The page corresponding to this system shows no hardware drivers that I need.  http://h10025.www1.HP.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?OS=228&LC=en&cc=us&DLC=en&sw_lang=&product=75924...

Hello there SeeBryte! : why not look in your device manager, then write down what you see there (here is a list of all devices in your PC and then go to www.google.com or www.bing.com either there is a rectangle where you enter the name of each component once you go to the website of whatever manufactureed component)

& get your drivers here.

Then, I'd do the same to all of your programs

ultimately I would buy a box of sale at retail of windows 7 or Vista & install it via the clean install (formats again)

Good luck

hope this helps

    Activation problem

    My daughter has two old PC, which one was not being used. The hard drive has failed in the current PC, so I transferred the hard drive to another PC having failed in the spare PC. Windows XP Pro Startup OK up to the point of requiring activation but when I enter the product key of Windows XP Pro that I bought from Microsoft in 2006, does not recognize that and I think that it is because the hard drive is from another PC. Because we want to keep the old data on the old hard drive, how can I fix this problem?

    Also, that the PC is at less than 7 years and we cannot afford to buy a new, the activation request happens halfway during windows startup is to early for WinXP to recognize the keyboard and mouse USB PS2 only boots off the coast of motherboard and everything in a computer repair shop gave me a PS2 keyboard on this occasion they can't do it again. Is there a solution for this because you can not buy a ps2 keyboard longer?

  • Windows XP start error after access to the hard drive from another computer

    Computer laptop Windows XP went bad because of a bad graphics card.  Bought a new computer at the same time with Windows 7.  Pull the hard drive of the laptop to get the files back.  Had to change the permissions to grant access.  Now when I try to start the windows XP laptop, I get a "windows cannot load the user's profile but you has logged on with the default profile" and then a "windows Explorer has encountered a problem" appears and I can't do anything with it.  When I select 'close' the screen goes gray, then the same message appears.  I have to use the Task Manager to restart.  I did a repair of my XP install disc and also a system restore and still the same problem.  Help!

    Also, running service pack 3 before the repair.  Now on service pack 2 that I cannot access windows update to get updates.

  • Pavilion x 2 10-n100na: can I add a hard drive from a HP Pavilion x 2 10-n100na?

    Can I add a hard drive to a Pavilion x 2 10-n100na? I noticed that some models in this range, for example. the Pavilion x 2 10-n107na, have a 1 TB drive. These 2 machines appear identical on the outside, so I was wondering if the 10 - 100na has all the required internal connections such as I could slot in my own hard drive.

    All answers gratefully received. Thank you.

    @Huffer

    I noticed that the manual indicates that it is for some models only, but unfortunately there is not any information about who they are.

    I have to disagree with you and say no.

    You cannot add a disk hard unless your x 2 is one of the special types.

    In the manual, you'll notice that even the keyboard, the coverage and the closing of the bottom are different. Take a very close look at this manual.

  • remove the hard drive from the a1112n Pavilion

    I want to delete my old HP hard drive and replace it and need some guideance step by step to do. Any help would be appreciated.

    Again, it is another question.

    (1) If you do not rely on the maintenance of this machine, just pull the hard drive and it has to break.

    (2) If you just want to delete sensitive data, it becomes more delicate with a profane.  The best scenerio is delete the data files, then you transfer files small image and these will write in the previous blocks. Then you remove the small images and then randomly to download the same or slightly larger. Finally, you write too the blocks where the data has been written.

    (3) otherwise, move you all your photos, files, word, music and other data files to a USB key. Then reformat with the installation of WIndows XP CD set (these 11 cd I mentioned).

    (4) probably (as my friend pointed out this reading) you're a layman.  Any student would be probably able to help.

    Hello

    You 'slave' it in another computer as a secondary drive. you do not try and run it in another computer as a Bootable drive.

    The best and easiest way is to use a "USB hard disk box" > put the hard failure that > plug into the computer to work > try and read from there.

    If it is too damaged to read, you may need to contact the data recovery specialists; but they are very expensive.

    See you soon.

  • DV6-6119wm: HP Pavilion dv6-6119wm - replace the hard drive with a hard drive from a laptop Gateway

    OK (deep breath). I have a dilemma, and I hope that you all can help me.

    First of all, the HP laptop in question is a dv6-6119wm QE069UA #ABA, Windows 7 Home Premium.

    A month ago, it began overheating and then blue screened on me with a fan error. I ran it while I was getting this error, which was a mistake, because according to me, he has finally caused the hard drive failure after enforcement of reset factory several times. But I'm getting ahead.

    I replaced the fan and the heatsink myself. Another factory reset. Downloaded and installed all the updates of windows. Ran great for like a week with the exception of the fault 1 hard disk when I ran the Start Up Test.

    Then when I restarted yesterday... He's dead, so he is dead.  Apparently, the hard drive failed completely and comes only a black screen telling me it cannot start.

    So, I have this other model of Gateway laptop, NV55C26u which has stopped charging. I had to put it away and don't worry. I got out the hard drive and tried HP successfully. ! Sorta.

    It considers that the HP is a gateway and as a result, none of the drivers are there for all the good stuffs HP. It cannot connect to the internet and does not recognize the USB flash drive. (I had downloaded all the drivers on another laptop and put them on a pious flash drive I could convince the hard drive it's HP again). Another hard drive WILL work in the dv6, and I had no errors on startup it upward.

    I have no recovery discs or store bought Windows 7, all came with the laptop preinstalled. But I don't have my key to the label.

    Then what should I do? I'm not exactly tech savvy, I know just enough to be dangerous haha, but I tend to go glassy when things get too technical. I thought I could get something Microsoft to reinstall my Windows but I guess they closed this path down a few months ago.

    I have access to 2 other laptops, both HP. A QE304UA of Pavilion G7 #ABA with Windows 7 Home Premium and a HP 250 G2 Portable F7V84UT #ABAwith Windows 7 Professional.

    So basically in order to encapsulate this novel to the top, which can do here to fix my dv6? How can I convince this other HDD HP rather than Gateway? I can create something from one of these other HP laptops? Download something somewhere? I don't want to have to buy Windows again. I love this phone and need her in my life as a game.

    Please help me

    You must do a clean install of Windows on them. The hard drive has drivers for completely different material. Too bad that you did not have your drive to retrieve the value. It would restore the hard drive to HP with all the drivers/software installed. It would depend if the hard disk is at least the same capacity or larger than the original. Recovery discs are reluctant to a smaller capacity hard drive.

    You can order recovery Medai for about $16:

  • Copy the library from an external hard drive to another catalog EHD and sync

    Already, I saw this link but it doesn't tell me how to copy the library, it simply moving photos from one hard drive to another How to copy files to an external hard drive in Lightroom "Julieanne Kost's Blog of »

    I want to know how can I make a second copy of my library on my second drive, backup in case where my only main falls down and I want it so that my catalog can be synchronized with my second backup drive.

    Any ideas?

    The easy answer is to-

    1. close Lightroom

    2 use the software to 'mirror' of your Master images folder and subfolders of the primary transmission to the second DHM operation.

    Some free Windows software-SyncBack, MS-Synctoy, FreeFileSync.

    * If your Lightroom catalog file exists in the records of Master images, it will appear in the "mirror".

    * You can exclude the... Previews.lrdata folder of EHD. (it can be huge, and it can be re-built)

    * Note: "block mirror" made an exact copy of the files, it adds new files and removes the file 'deleted' SMT. It should not be used as a backup of the system-Deleted files are also deleted from the "mirror".

    * Note: You must not access the EHD copy using the catalogue work Lightroom on the main drive - this will only create chaos.

    3. If you want to restore from a system crash JEP 'mirror' will catalogue and image files in the exact state at the time of the last "mirror." Copy everything back to the main unit and open the catalog. LRCAT file. Lightroom is back in business.

    Yes, you should be able to.

    They are the same model series and should have essentially the same key components.

    Despite the title, this video explains how to MOVE pictures, not how to copy.

    There is no way to make copies of the photos using Lightroom, you can move the photos using Lightroom.

    Lightroom will result in no records per day, except when you import photos. If I could make a suggestion, leave your files in the same "mess" they are in now and use the keywords and other metadata to allow you to organize and search.
