the internal HARD drive has been corrupted and I fails to make the back upward. need information.

I've owned an HP Pavilion dm1-LQ862PA #UUF, used to be windows 7-64 bit. the internal hard drive has been corrupted and recommended to replace another. they were asking for the backup cd and I failed to do, and I do not regret it. Well, except to lose all my files and programs that I installed, it will also include bluetooth, wi - fi and other important built in programs? I'm not a computer expert. If ever these important programs had totally disappeared, how retrieve it? my laptop in an HP authorized service center will be probably expensive and I decided to buy a new HARD drive and ask someone to put it in and install a new OS. Please help thanks


There is a support for your PC page where all the software drivers to run the hardware on your PC such as bluetooth and wireless can be reinstalled. & CC = US & DLC = in & LC = on & query = LQ862PA & Tool=.

What I don't see is the availability of recovery disks to reinstall the operating system (windows 7 64-bit) or your PC programs (other than those listed in the link of support above).

This means that if you want to replace the hard drive, you must make your own W7 64-bit installation media and use the 7 product key of Microsoft windows on the bottom of your PC to activate the installation.

That assumes you can read all 25 characters of the product key windows 7.

Here's how...

If you can read the Microsoft windows 7 25-character product key, you can download simple Windows 7 ISO files to burn on a DVD for the version of windows that is installed on your PC, and which is listed on the Microsoft COA sticker on your PC case.

Burn the ISO with the option to burn the ISO on your DVD burning program and burn it at the slowest possible speed that will allow your program. This will create a bootable DVD.

Or use the installation of Windows 7 USB/DVD tool to compile the ISO file that you download from Digital River. Link and instructions below. You need a 4 GB flash drive to use the USB compilation method.

Use 25 characters on the PC product key to activate the installation.

The key will activate a 32 or 64 bit installation.

Then go to the support of the PC and driver page to install the drivers you need.

Link to downloads ISO of W7 is below.

The replacement hard drive should be a 320 GB SATA II 5 400 rpm Disk If you want the same specification provided with your PC hard drive.

Please refer to Chapter 4 of the service manual on the link below for the procedures for removal and replacement of the hard disk.

  • Internal hard drive has all of a sudden the write Protection


    My internal hard drive has suddenly developed the write protection and has resisted each of my attempts to change this. I found issues related to external hard drives, but have not met a subject that bears on the disk system hard to develop this problem.

    The last State of operational activities that are known:

    My main hard drive read/write functions were fine the day before. The only things I did today were the usual activities like browsing the web, watching videos, etc.. The only thing I did of note has been download a Steam game, which required the U-Play from Ubisoft. I installed the game and U-Play, so the game went very well. Then I played another game of steam which does not need U-Play, then attempts to transfer files on a USB key.

    Steps taken to solve the problem:

    When you try to transfer files, warning "the disk is write protected" appears. I thought that it odd, as I had never met this caveat on this PC before. I discovered that all the files in the C drive have been suddenly write protected. My attempts to solve this problem include:

    • Deactivation of 'Read only' file level and folder settings. The settings app doesn't seem to be a problem, but the moving folder gave the warning and she returned to "read only".
    • What allows all permissions for the users and system Admins for drive C properties > Security (I found it odd that users have all permissions, when I clearly remember all the usual permissions enabled previously)
    • Reboot/boot scan running for drive C to properties error checking > tools > error checking, which reported no error.
    • Opened as administrator command prompt and entering 'diskpart', 'list volume', "select volume #', disk clear readonly attribute, readonly attributes volume clear." The clear drive has reported a failure, while the clear volume reported a success.

    None of these steps have managed to solve the question of write protection. Might this problem be possibly related to the downloaded game, or the program U-Play from Ubisoft? Is there something that I missed? What can I do else? I have documents and files that have not been backed up, but I don't want to lose.

    Thank you for reading, any help would be appreciated!

    I'm really sorry for your time. The culprit is revealed to be the key USB is write-protected, not the drive internal (phew!). I guess I panicked a bit and don't think to test with another stick of memory, which transferred files very well. Problem solved, I'll just reformat the wobbly flash drive.

    Thank you for sticking with it, even when I probably don't have too much sense, you have been very helpful and patient.

  • HP Recovery Kit will re - install Vista if hard drive has been replaced?

    Hello everyone, this is my first post so I hope that I understand.

    I bought a HP Pavilion s3050uk of second hand compact office, product number RY930AA.

    The only OS on it is a trial version of Windows 7 Ultimate, little time to expire.  I knew when I bought but I was just able to reinstall Vista Home Premium using the HP Recovery Kit and the number of product key from the COA on the PC sticker.

    However, I think now that the HARD drive has been replaced at some point - my machine has a 200 GB (Seagate ST3200822AS ATA) and I think that these machines haven't shipped with a 250 GB?  Now, I'm worried that I will pass on the recovery kit but it won't reinstall Vista because the hardware has been changed.  If it is probably the case of others has experience then I may as well save my money (which is very tight at the moment, where the 2nd hand PC) and put it toward the purchase of an operating system package full.

    Hope someone is able to advise me.

    Thank you

  • Dell XPS 410 HARD drive has been reformatted accidentally.

    HARD drive has been reformatted accidentally. I'm not interested in the stored data, I want to just go back to the factory settings.  Operating system is Vista.

    Thanks for any advice.

    You will need the recovery media you do when you received the system - attach the flash drive or insert the first disk in the backup media, power and press F12.  Start since the media and follow the prompts to reload the factory software image.

    If you do not prepare a media defined in advance, you will need to contact the customer service Dell to buy a game now - they are in fact not able to provide Windows Vista at this stage.

    How can I reinstall Indesign after that my hard drive has been deleted?

    After obtaining a hard drive in working condition, you can reinstall the software using the discs if you bought the discs, or you can download your software as a trial version and use your original serial number to activate it.

    If the software is the latest version, you can download it from the Adobe product pages.

    If the software is an older version, you can download the demo version of the software using the link below and then use your current serial number to activate it.

    2. Choose the network
    3. Select a Wi - Fi connection on the left
    4. Click Advanced... in the bottom right
    5. Choose your network from the list of preferred networks

    7. Click OK
    8. Click on apply

    Once removed try to connect to your Wi - Fi network normally and you will be prompted for the password.


  • My expansion drive has been disconnected, and all the files that have been renamed on Premier Pro are missing!  Help!

    I use Adobe first Pro CS5.  I'm working on a project for a month and this morning, I realized that there is a problem with it.  To make sure that I don't junk my computer upwards, I have always to leave the files I'm working with my expansion drive and I work from there.  I have autosave all the time, etc, but apparently, at some recent point, my disk expansion has been disconnected, and Premiere Pro tells me that all my files are offline.  My biggest problem is that I've renamed all my video files in Premiere Pro, but I not rename them on my drive for expansion.  Thus, for them find would probably take me as long, if not more, of my original work.  Is it possible in the world that I can record these files and the long hours that I've already spent editing this video?  If you have an idea regarding what I can do, I would be eternally grateful.   Note: I work with AVCHD clips.

    Please, I beg you.  Whatever that is would be helpful at this stage.

    Make sure that Premiere Pro is closed, and reconnect the drive.  Everything should be good when you reopen the project.

    The exceptions are two.  Bill has raised the first.  The second is that if you have already saved the project with offline files.  Once you do that, you're done.

    There is no download available on the Net and your hard drive as failed now, you are unable to make the recovery of the disks.

    And you cannot use from recovery disks of a different brand or model (laptop) to reinstall Vista on your Tower / Desktop

  • My drive HARD 160BG has been deleted and loads of files off itself

    I had all my music and photos on my new hard drive, then one day they removed somehow themselves. Luckily I had backups of certain things, but not about this. When I copied stuff back it says you want to crush showing that files have been deleted actually not.

    The files are not hidden files and they take place. When I select all the files it says the total is 38.8 MB, but just one of the only records was more than that. Anyone know how to recover these files.

    Help, please

    Hello Debra

    It will be interesting to know which laptop computer Toshiba a 160 GB HARD drive.

    Anyway: it's really not easy talk if someone reports on data deleted somehow themselves. In my opinion, you should ask a friend for help that has all this in front of him and can much better deal with it. On this way, we can only speculate and you won't be size just your time.

    Good luck Debra!

  • Is it possible to work on projects iMovie on external hard drives in order to save disk space on my macbook (the internal hard drive has little space)?


    I have a problem working with iMovie on my MacBook Air... Drive HARD internal of the MacBook is unfortunately to small for the biggest projects iMovie... Is there a way to work on external hard drives or perhaps TimeCapsule?

    Thank you very much in advance!

    Yes, put your iMovie library/ies on a fast (7200 RPM) external hard drive to the Apple format is a good way of working.  Details of the setting up of libraries are covered in the help files to:

    Note that you may need to consolidate the media in an existing library before you travel to avoid breaking links to media located in the libraries from other Apple applications.  See:

    I would not recommend using Time Capsule - you would need a separate partition above the used by time machine, and you could put some data on the same drive as backup.  Connection speed can also be a problem.
