  • How can I make SUST recovery of windows vista Home premium via the command prompt. My laptop is Hp pavilion dv5. Meet _ @ _. ___

    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 accessible

    If 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.
    1. 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.

    2. 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

    Windows Vista

    Using the F8 method:

    1. Restart your computer.
    2. 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.
    3. Select the Safe Mode option with the arrow keys.
    4. Then press enter on your keyboard to start mode without failure of Vista.
    5. To start Windows, you'll be a typical logon screen. Connect to your computer and Vista goes into safe mode.
    6. Do whatever tasks you need and when you are done, reboot to return to normal mode.
  • 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

  • How to connect my device bluetooth on HP Pavilion dv5-1135ee


    In fact my bluetooth device is not plugged in, although the wireless LAN works fine!

    All the time I try to change the Bluetooth options in order to allow others to see my computer, he said "it seems your bluetooth device not connected correctly.

    Please info on how to connect my bluetooth device on HP Pavilion dv5-1135ee, keeping in mind that the turn on button is a perspective!

    and with this optical touch, I activated the WLAN + Bluetooth

    Wireless LAN works, and has no Bluetooth!

    I tried to download Bluetooth driver associated with my (Vista home edition) operating system from HP website, but @ acertain point configuration stopped, saying the same error that 'Bluetooth device is not detected.

    Any Info?

    Kind regards

    Thank you very much, the problem has been resolved.

    The Solution: Run Windows Update and everything will be solved, actually it was an error inherenet on vista (Micrososft ISATAP adapter) so it might conflict with the Bluetooth device, and once the update is installed, all return to it's origin.

  • HP Pavilion DV5 - 1235dx Bios Driver for windows 8.1

    Hi, I can't find in services upgrade hp, an option for my operation system windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit. And now? Help me please! I need to update the Bios of my HP Pavilion DV5-1235dx.

    What is pass or don't pass don't not with Windows 8.1 you think that an update of the BIOS would help? The latest version of the BIOS is F.21 and HP has not issued any supported Windows 8/8.1 for this model, which was originally a Vista machine.

  • Change the bios on my hp pavilion dv5-2135dx of 1333mz to 1866mz on the speed of RAM.

    I have a hp pavilion dv5-2135dx laptop and I would like to go into the bios and change the speed of the RAM ddr3 1333mz to 1866mz.  I bought two chips hiperx plug-and-play of the kingston ddr3 4gig and they are set up to accept the upgrade to speed the1866mz.  I need to know if it is possible to do this procedure and if this is the case, what is the procedure to make this change.

    I have a hp dv5-2135dx and I would also change the computer's bios to speed my RAM in 1033, because it is the actual number of the speed of memory ram bios shows that memory 4gig-2 chips can be improved is 1866.  HP, why don't you update the bios to accept the speed of the ram of 1866, if memory chips can be accelerated.  I don't think the upgrade is so difficult to create by upgrading the bios of your Indian coders geniuses.

  • Cannot access connections wireless on HP Pavilion dv5

    Product name HP Pavilion DV5 laptop

    Windows 7 Home Premium operating system.

    Error message: Wireless message "no connection is available.

    No changes were made to the system

    I can't access wireless connections, even if the other devices have access to connections.  Wireless adapters work, but I can't seem to 'see' all wireless connections. /

    This has just occurred recently-never a problem in the past.

    Any recommendations?

    I recommend you update your BIOS. Go to http://www8.hp.com/us/en/support-drivers.html , and then type the name of your product in the search box.  Choose the Dv5 Entertainment Notebook that you have and select.  On the next page select your operating system Windows 7 Home 32 or 64-bit. Once on the correct driver for your laptop page choose BIOS in the list of drivers. Please update your BIOS and reboot. This should bring your WIFI connection. Please let me know if that solves this problem.

    Hello, I'm recovering from the corruption of BIOS, hoping that it is not a failed mobo.

    I downloaded the latest BIOS update for my system, but I can't this file to install on an external USB key using HP instructions to restore the BIOS.

    To 1.11 step, I don't get the "HP system BIOS Update Utility" screen. Instead, I get this:

    My questions:

    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.

  • file or directory C:\user\owner\appdata\roaming is corrupted and unreadable


    I tried clicking on the itunes program and got a message saying that itunes has been corrupted (c4:itunes exe file or directory C:\User\Owner\AppData\Roaming is damaged and unreadable. Please run ChkDsk utility).  It's the same thing with the Adobe 9 reader.  I tried to run the harddrive utility and he said that he could not work while the hard drive was running.  He said to plan a disk check, what will happen when the computer is restarted.  I clicked on it and then turn off the computer.  I turned it back on and nothing happened.  Then I tried to uninstall and reinstall the programs.  I was able to uninstall and reinstall Itunes, but it still doesn't work.  The Adobe 9 reader would either uninstall or installation.  Finally, I tried to restore my computer back to before I got the problem.  When I tried to restore it, he said that the local C: drive was defective and I had to make a check of the hard drive, which basically brought me back to the first step.  Is it possible to fix this or I have to take.

    Hello jortiz6,

    To resolve this problem, use the tool (SFC.exe) System File Checker to determine which file is causing the problem, then replace the file. To do this, follow these steps:

    1. Open an elevated command prompt. To do this, click Start, click principally made programs, Accessories, right-click guest, and then click run as administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type the password, or click allow.
    2. Type the following command and press ENTER: sfc/scannow (Yes there is a space after sfc) the sfc/scannow command analyzes all protected system files and replaces incorrect versions with appropriate Microsoft versions.

    After the sfc scan you can scan with Malwarebytes below to ensure that your system is clean:

    Try to start your system in safe mode:

    1. Restart your computer if it is running.
    2. Press and hold the F8 key for 3 seconds after your computer powers initially on.
    3. Once you see the menu Advanced Boot Options, you can stop tapping.
    4. Up/down arrow keys to highlight your selection.
    5. Select Mode safe mode with networking and press ENTER.
    6. You should see drivers loading, it may take a few moments.
    7. You should then be at the Welcome screen.
    8. Connect to your computer using an account with administrator privileges.
    9. Now, you download (free) MalwareBytes from here: http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html?tag=mncol install, Update then do a scan of your system in safe mode, to ensure that it is indeed clean!
