HELP
« on: August 18, 2008, 09:58:43 AM »

I NEED SOME HELP, EVERYTIME I GO TO TURN MY COMPUTER ON, IT GIVES ME OPTIONS FOR SAFE MODE, START MORMALLY ETC...  WELL, NO MATTER WHAT, I HAVE CHOSEN, IT STARTS LOADING, FLASHES TO A BLUE SCREEN, AND THEN RESTARTS ITSELF AND THE CYCLE GOES ALL OVER AGAIN. WHAT DO I DO???  I WENT INTO THE SYSTEM BIOS AND DID A HARD DRIVE SELF CHECK AND IT FAILED TEST #1- 07 FAIL...  THERE WAS ONE DAY LAST WEEK WHILE I WAS MESSING AROUND WITH IT I WAS ABLE TO GET IT INTO SAFE MODE. BUT THEN IT LOST POWER AND WONT RETURN TO ANY MODE AT ALL. WHAT CAN I DO???   ITS AN HP PAVILLION ENTERTAINMENT NOTEBOOK DV6000 SERIES

Sounds like you can go buy a new hard drive, and install XP on it.  Or if it's still under warranty then call HP and have them replace the hard drive for you.

Also, people don't much appreciate double posts or all caps.

this is why people back things up. frequently. multiple times over, redundantly. often opting to have the computer do it for them automatically. and then they put a backup copy in an off-site storage facility, like a safe deposit box, on multiple medium. computer storage is not permanent, sadly. nobody likes to lost data, plan ahead next time.

hopefully you can recover the lost data, but if the hard drive is failing a check, then probably not. CCM's suggestion should work best.

ive heard this before and some people swear by it, after you replace the hdd and get everything running, and have the usb cable for attaching your old hdd, put the old one in the freezer for a half hour or so, then try plugging it in to retrieve your info.

You only need to try that if the hard drive won't start at all.  His is obviously spinning up since he gets the request to go to Safe Mode.

You could always try booting off of an XP cd, going into recovery mode and running fixmbr, fixmft and a full chkdsk. It may bring the system up long enough to copy / burn your data off

No one here is going to give you a copy of Windows.

Spend the money -- get a new drive. I'm assuming your HP came with a restore disc? Maybe that will let you re-install what you need. Then the put the old drive in an encl. like CCM said and grab your files.
