I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.
I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.
You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi I want to instal one SSD disk on my computer. Do anyone now if it is Sata 3 port on this computer ? If it isn`t can I install Sata 3 port or do I have to chang motheboard ! Regards KOB32
Hi: Run this free hardware analyzer that I have zipped up and attached below. Run the file, close the summary window and on the left side of the window, click to expand the Drives section. Then click to expand the sata/atapi drives section. Click on your hard drive name listed there. The first line will be the Drive Controller spec. It will report the hard drive type running at a certain speed. For example Serial ATA 6 Gb/s @ 6 Gb/s. If your notebook only has a SATA II port, it might report Serial ATA 6 Gb/s @ 3 Gb/s, or Serial ATA 3 Gb/s @ 3 Gb/s.

[/B]I have had the notebook for five years; yesterday the following message:
NTLDR is missing
Press ctrl + alt + del to restart
When the user does the instruction, the boot starts and the message repeats.
I really do not want to do a reinstall of the operating system; if someone has away to reinstall just the boot tracks.
 Is this a virues?
 Is this the work of a hacker?
 Has there been an MS-XP failure?

Hello. I have a HP Pavillion 15 Notebook PC product number: J1X37EA#AB9 with Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4510U CPU @ 2.00GHz 2.60GHz, RAM: 12,0 GB, Windows 10 64-bits and in what comes to graphics i have Intel(R) HD Graphics 4400 and a NVidia GeForce 840M. I believe my intel graphic card is integrated in the board but the Nvidia one can be upgraded. Am I wrong or can I really upgrade my graphics card?
Hi, Unfortunately the Nvidia chip is integrated and not an upgradeable component - this is the case for most consumer class notebooks. Regards, DP-Khttp://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/Can-I-upgrade-my-graphic-card-in-my-HP-Pavillion-15-Notebook/td-p/5843097
Hello,I was recently given a pavillion dv9821ea laptop which was in bad shape after being infected with a virus. I eventually had to replace the hard drive and at the same time I upgraded the operating system to windows 7 PRO 64bit. I was unable to save nothing from the origonal hard drive, no drivers, HP software etc and since I installed Windows 7, the laptop seems to have several problems including not downloading Windows updates. I connect it to the HP assistant, but this recognises the laptop and only gives me the choice of Windows Vista as the operating system for which to support drivers etc. I wonder if you could help me by letting me know if there is anywhere I can download Windows 7 pro 64bit drivers for this laptop? my wife and I are both disabled and it would make a great difference to me if I could have full use of this laptop. Regards. Gerald
Hi, Gerald: HP did not support that model for W7, and you should be able to use the Vista drivers from the dv9821ea support page except the BIOS and firmware files. Additionally, you can read this helpful dv9000 W7 upgrade guide for some tips on getting W7 to work just fine on that model. http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Operating-System-and-Recovery/Windows-7-Upgrade-Guide-for-dv60...http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/Drivers-for-Pavillion-dv9821ea-entertainment-notebook/td-p/5594190

If you have (and should have) a USB keyboard and mouse connect them and see if they will work.
Since your file system was already corrupted you cloned the bad files to the new drive.
If the USB devices work you should do a Repair Install.
If that doesn't work do this: Using System Recovery, Factory Reset and Minimized Image Recovery Options HP Pavilion dv6-3225dx Entertainment Notebook PC | HP? Support
From this tut:
Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
On newer models HP Recovery may offer a Minimized OS Recovery option when booting from F11, which retains only the OS, Recovery Manager, HP Support Asst, and HP Wireless LAN. This is as close to a clean reinstall as you can get without doing one yourself.
● If you clean reinstall only to C and leave all other partitions intact, F11 Recovery key should still work later if you need it.
● You can also Extract HP 3rd Party Software from RecovCD.
● Problems with volume control lighting and HP Quick Launch buttons have been dealt with here where you can also get further support.

Hello katrapezo. I understand you're having some trouble recording audio. Have you tried recording in another application such as Sound Recorder? I'd also like you to remove your audio drivers and allow Windows to reinstall them. Here are the steps.Click Start, type "Device Manager," and press Enter.Expand the "Sound, video, and game controllers" section.Right click on your sound card and select "Uninstall."Reboot your computer.Verify whether the problem persists.Also, what is your notebook's product number? This document can show you where it is located.Have a wonderful day.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Audio/HP-Pavillion-dv6-notebook-audio-recording-issue-windows-7/td-p/2737617
hp pavillion laptop 15-p067ca model, purchased year ago, came with windows 8.1, was not updated to windows 10. seems to have a bug: on start up it welcomes me as a user "vladimir" asks for password and then hangs up forever with the white screen and unresponsive. Password I'm sure is right, because if I type different password, machine comes back with "Incorrect password" message. What do you think is a problem and how to go back to factory settings? I have not made a recovery disc. Any comp supposedly have a recovery partition, and Recovery Manager but how can I do anything if Window does not come up?

Sounds like it might be time for a reinstall to refresh the OS and overcome any lingering infection. Follow these same steps for Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 particularly when it comes to drivers and Updates.
Otherwise work through these Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 including the hardware tests.
Several weeks ago I bought the new HP Pavillion dv9574ea notebook and the HEADPHONE SOCKETS do not work - there are two. Only the speakers work. Even when I put a working set of headphones which are the right size, I cannot hear anything through the hearphones. The normal loud speakers however keep working, although they should switch off when the headphones are plugged in.
Please see the screenshot of the drivers active (in system 32 folder) and other details about the headphone socket.
Thank you for any help.

What is your anti-virus program?
at my work there is a web page that everyone must log on to and use daily. on one specific computer that web page keeps refreshing on its own unless i press the stop button. when i try to log on, rather than send the log on info, it starts refreshing on its own again. we have to use internet explorer as no other browser is compatible with the page. i've tried removing IE and re-installing it using multiple versions (6,7, and 8beta) with no success. i've also run the anti virus, spybot and registryfix to try and identify the problem, again with no success. short of wiping the entire system and starting over is there anything else i can do?
ps. i have also gotten a pop-up box displaying this registry item:
I have a PNY Nvidia 9600 GT Graphics card and Vista Ultimate installed on my Desktop.
I am trying to connect my Desktop CPU to my Sony Bravia LCD TV (v series) using a s-Video Cable which came with the Graphics Card. But when the desktop appears on the TV screen, there are lots of lines going up and down where as the picture should be clear.
Hi HBlake If you've only 2 USB ports and the mouse & keyboard is using one each then buy a powered USB hub like this. You can buy unpowered ones, but they are usually less reliable - plus if the item(s) connected are relatively power hungry, then they will fail....http://community.acer.com/t5/All-In-One-PCs/how-do-I-hook-up-a-printer-if-if-keyboard-is-using-one-port-and/td-p/404603/jump-to/first-unread-message
My pc, i have come to the conclusion, is trashed. I use AOL 9.0 at work, and was in the process of dl-ing Windows updates for Win2000 the other day...yes, we're a business that still uses dialup...anyhoo, i left the pc on overnight to dl the updates, and when I saw it again the next morning there were over a hundred popup windows open, and now i can't even get HJT to create a log or even scan completely. I get this error message:"HiJack This.exe has generated errors and will now be closed by Windows. You will need to restart this program." I have never seen this before, so can anyone help?
hello everyone, hope someone can help me out here!!

Has anyone ever done this ? I am new to and just bought a JVC miniDV Camcorder. It says in the owners manual that one can: transfer still images stored on a memory card to a PC using USB. It also says that you can transfer still/moving images that were recorded on the DV tape to a PC as well, by using USB. I thought that one had to use the IEEE 1394 Firewire to transfer or capture the digital stills and moving images(digital video) from the Camera's DV Tape to the PC ?
If someone knows how to do this could you please help me out and elaborate some how this is accomplished using USB rather than Firewire ?! I'd like to use what I hav cuz i don't have "Firewire" on my PC as yet.
Any help id be really appreciated. Thanks.

Hi and welcome to TSF did you try system restore from safe mode to a time you know all was working wellhttp://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f217/pavillion-dv6-log-on-problem-639006.html
the starter wire came off of the mother board and i am not sure how it plugs back in no matter wich way i put it it wont start
They usually work face up, are you sure you are plugging into the right jumper? Most boards have it listed in real small print next to the jumpers.
Hi, I have a problem with the boot up on my hp pavillion t760. I hope you can help.
This is what happens.
I press the power button on the front and the light comes on the screen then powers up with the blue "hp invent" background and the 3 options at the bottom, <Esc=Boot Menu><F1=Setup><F10=System Recovery>. The light on the pc then goes off, then flashes once then goes out. and the screen stays the same. Before this problem it used to do the same but when the light flashed once the screen went black and windows started.
I have tried to press Esc when loading to get the boot menu up so i can see if its booting up in the right sequence but nothing happens.
Can you help please
What about the F1 and F10 functions? Do they work?
Those are all Bios related functions that are offered before the handoff to the operating system, and if you cannot get them to work it may be a low CMOS battery problem. You could try replacing that.
I read the posting CM Lanman, explaining basicially the very same problem I'm experiencing with HP Pavillion zt3000 laptop. When I boot the computer up, all I get is a black screen, any help out there.
Can you boot all the way into Normal Mode at all (if there's a problem you may have to wait like ten mins) ?
Can you boot into Safe Mode successfully ?
hey this is my first post, I thought someone could help me.
I have an HP Pavillion 752n with a 2.0 P4
I went to sleep the other night after watching a movie on my computer, turned off the monitor like normal, but when i woke up the mouse (no red light for the optical) and monitor were dead and my computers suspend light was on (brown instead of normal green). I reset my computer and it started up normally for the first 30 seconds and then everythieng went dead. i tried it again and it lasted 10 seconds.
I opened up the case to see what was going on internally and when i powered on the CPU fan turns off after a few seconds and everything goes dead exept for the pci cards (my video card fan still runs) and the brown light on the front where it should be green. someone please help!! thanks
A friend of mine has a HP pavillion with an unusual problem.
I hit the power button and I get the light blue screen with the info on how to get to bios and boot order.
That stays on for less than a second and the screen goes blank and shows that there is no signal.
I dont think it would be a power supply.
When it says no signal, I can hit F10 and get into bios which looks fine.
Any suggestions on what could be wrong?
Thanks for ang suggestions.

Hello there. Have you read this?
I have a HP Pavillion dv6-2112sa laptop.
My issue is that when I plug in my headphones the sound to what I am watching or listening to still plays through the speakers at the same time, and as you can imagine the reason for me putting the headphones in is so the sound only plays through the headphones. I have been on the HP website and followed their suggestions but have had no success, including many tests and configurations on the control panels.
I hoped someone might have an idea?

I bought my 6190eu just under a year ago and the warranty's end is creeping up. My problem is that my ac adaptor is very sensitive and ony starts to charge my laptop when it is place in a certain way. I have read some other forums and some say that there are problems internally, however they do not say that the power adaptor is sensitive. Is there a problem internally or should i get a new power adaptor?
Yeah, well I would ask them to send you a new power charger.

Standby does not work since I installed the latest XP SP3.
When the 1230 goes into standby, the screen goes blank and the keyboard is locked. It will not quickly resume with an active screen regardless of which key is depressed. In order to recover, the power must be turned off, and then back on in order to continue. In effect, standby works like hibernate, even though hibernate is not enabled. Any ideas about the cause of this type of problem?
Does the BIOS have to be updated??
You could try removing SP3 and see if the computer returns to normal

Hi frosty5689, and welcome to TSF.
Yes, the system is basic. I am not a hardware tech but........300w PSU???? For that graphics card? Perhaps not.
I will do a little more research and get back to you.
I have an HP Pavillion DV8000 Lap Top using Windows XP Pro Service pack 3. The sound car or driver is Conexant AMC Audio.
While playing some music last night from Pandora Internet Radio, the sound sounded like a streaming issue. Now all of my sounds including notifications ie: mail receipt, errors etc...
I went back to HP and downloaded/installed the driver for this machine but it didn't help.
Does anyone have an ideas?
so you have some sound and it cuts in and out ? or now you have no sound ? please describe issue again ?
check Device Manager for yellow or red flags in the sound and audio section.
when you re-install drivers you should first uninstall old drivers.
have you installed software recently that uses audio (maybe something from Pandora). try uninstalling.
try external speakers to see if problem is with internal speakers.
alot of issues with laptops are overheating issues. are vents blocked with dust ?
Reformat hard drive. No sound. No longer have my system cd. I followed the other thread in here (howard_hopkinso) for the download on the intel page. This didn't fix my problem. Yellow icon next to Sigma-Tel C audio. I assume the download is not for my computer. Control panel > sound and audio devices. The contents of the volume and audio tab are grayed out. All Programs > Accessories > Entertainment > Volume properties returns an error message. "There are no active mixer devices available. Click add hardware to install one". Called HP, they charge $67 for replacement CD. Anybody got a clue as to what is going on or how to install a mixer device?. 542x Pavillion, XP.
You're going to need to obtain the appropriate driver for your audio card. You can try Windows Update(microsoft.com), but if it's not there then it looks like you'll have to buy that HP CD or see if a friend has it. I couldn't find it on a quick google search.
I have a HP Pavillion DV1000. Since last 2 days, it is giving me starting problem. When it does not start, then i remove the battery out and then put it again, repeat this process several times and sometimes that works.
I have 2 batteries, sometimes i keep changing on batteries and that also works. My both batteries are working fine, the only issue is laptop does not start by pressing the 'on' button the first time.
Once the laptop starts, then it will not shut down till i give shut down command.
What can be the problem?
how does it behave if you start with power supply only - no battery?
Device manager sees the pcmcia port and says its ok. when i slide a wireless card in, (or any card) it doesnt see the card, yet it says the port is ok?
Try uninstalling the port in device manager then reinstall it. If that doesn't work then the pcmcia contriller could be bad, I had one go on my old dell Latitide.
Right I'll cut to the chase. My brother, in all his wisdom, has superglued the power lead to the socket to stop it from 'jiggling' about. As I gather, all HP Pavillions have a power jack/dock problem, and supergluing it back hasn't solved the problem.
So my question to you is: is there a way to get rid of the super-glue and to remover the lead from the socket, without harming it further?
I have just read HP's warranty, and they do not cover/repair any damages 'self inflicted'. If there's a way to get rid of the glue then I can buy new parts and take it to a friends so he can rebuild it.
Thanks in advance for your help.
hi all at bleepingcomputer,
So i just did a clean install of windows 7 64 bit on my hp pavillion dv8000 and i was hopping some one at this awsome site could find the drivers that would work for windows 7 64-bit because i have been searching all night and have come up with nothing.
Any help would be appreciated.
I checked HP's web site (I assume you have too), and they are showing none for Windows 7.
That laptop is going on 4 years old (release date), and they are not going to provide any. Have you tried the Vista 64-bit drivers?
I have an intermittent failure to book. When this happens, the computer beeps constantly but does not turn on. If I turn off the back-up power and wait a few seconds, the computer boots OK when I turn it on. What is going on? Is this a serious problem? If so, how do I fix it?

Hi MexicanPygmy, Welcome to SF
Sounds like you have a problem with the mbr when installing multiple OS
You could try running startup repair of your install disk to repair(you may need to run this up to three times) or you can try other fixes, have a look at this MBR - Restore Windows 7 Master Boot Record
If your not sure of anything dont rush in post back and we can help
Afternoon all, My HP printer is connected to a HP pc running Windows 7. I have a phone list created via Microsoft Works Spreadsheet. The amount of ph numbers will fit perfectly on an A4 sheet in Landscape fashion. The document, when created yesterday, was saved in my documents folder. In HP Printer Assistant, I open Set Preferences and change the orientation from Portrait to Landscape. With the page I want to print open and holding down the Ctrl + P to access the print page, I go to Properties and change from Portrait to Landscape and click ok to print the document. The problem is this, the document prints 2 pages in Landscape fashion even after changing the settings in both the printer and in Print Properties. Thanks in advance of any suggestions.http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/forum/helproom-1/hp-pavillion-2050-printer-problem-4606248/

Well, I can only suggest these things first off.
1) Check the jumper settings on the CD-ROM drive (If it's IDE.)
2) Disconnect the Floppy drive from the motherboard, and see if that fixes the boot problem.
3) If all fails, try to flash an updated BIOS. It could be that the motherboard somehow doesn't support booting from the CD-ROM.
Some more info about the machine could help as well.
I have problems with my graphics card NVIDIA 830m on Pavillion 15-p203nv.When i choose to play any game using the integrated graphics from intel, i got way better fps than using the nvidia 830m.I have updated the drivers to the latest version and also done a windows clean install but the problem persists. I have also set power options from windows and nvidia settings to high perfomance with no difference. I even updated the bios but that did not help either. The temperatures while idle are 32c-37c and no more than 65c under load, plusi have cleaned the laptop from any dust. I need help because i don't think that is normal for the integrated graphic card to perform better than the nvidia card. Any help would be appreciated.

Up till a few hours ago I have had no problems with my integrated microphone and today I can't seem to figure out why it is not working. I have tried various things such as making sure it is the default device etc.
So I come here for your help. This is currently what it looks like when I am in the sound window.
The green bar to the right doesn't detect any noise or voices.
Can someone help me go through all the things I should check?
As this has worked OK and now does not, a System Restore may fix it. Restore the PC back to an available restore date when it did work.http://www.sevenforums.com/sound-audio/280219-hp-pavillion-dv6-integrated-microphone-array-problem.html
The blue wireless light is out. My wireless keyboard and mouse do not work... I have to use a plug in one to be able to use it. My Internet doesn't work either. Also when i go log on without safe mode after a few minutes my computer crashes.
I have looked through lots of things but i have not found one awnser to help solve this problem...
If you have a awnser for this problem please post.
I'm trying to help out some friends who bought an HP laptop. Unfortunately that was their first wrong choice... it turns out they have the lowest customer satisfaction rating out of all laptop manufacturers!
Anyway, almost every time I start up, the laptop starts up, I can login, then something like this shows up on my screen. The computer freezes and I have to hit the power button to shut it down.
Nothing looks out of the ordinary in the event log, and the HP Driver Utility says all the drivers are updated. I think this is a sign the video card is bad. Can anyone second that, or is it a different problem entirely?
Thanks for your help!
If it's under warranty, or whatever you call it where you are, don't touch it, take it back to the shop.
If it's not under warranty, has it had any upgrades recently, any changes?

Hello everybodytoday I have bought a HP Pavillion X360-13u004nl (EMEA), all works fine except for the keyboard: the "<>" key doesn't work. when i came back to the store the assistent told me that the same problem was present in the other notebook like mine. i have tried to update chipset driver (following the instruction in the hp support website) but it was useless. i have tried also to remove the driver from the device menager in the windows controll panel as reported in the hp support but it was useless. does anybody have the same problem? or does anyone know how to manage this problem? thank youhttp://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/hp-pavillion-x360-13u004nl-keyboard-problem/td-p/5806894
ok so i have a dv hp pavillion with win vista home premium actually the laptop is a series but that shouldnt matter to much just for some of you to pinpoint the problem more accurately First of all thanks for reading and trying to diagnose this wierd problem Problem is as states i originally found a problem with my laptop shortly turning it off one day the problem was that when i closed the lid on the laptop shortly after it would shut down as in not sleep but i could hear the hdd awkardly turn on hear the fan then it would kick off and power problem hp pavillion Laptop lid dv9000 i could hear the hdd loose power like if you were to unplug a from a usb connection passed it as a power issue and quickly went into the power settings to make sure that hybrid hybernation was turned off that sleep was the only option for lid Laptop dv9000 hp pavillion lid power problem closings and there were no timers on and everything is how it should have been and dismissed the problem once again shortly after noticing this problem it the power issue when i close the lid became more of an instant thing like it would try to sleep only to have the computer go into a state loosing power all together as i shut the lid or something to that effect so i thought that the lid option or some sys driver may have failed or became corrupt over several years of using my laptop so i decided to venture into the old manual and box get the system restore disks and proceed unfortuantely this didnt fix the problem either so i have elimenated several things so far one itts not the power options two its not the OS itself so i thought it may be something else and started to just shut the computer down when i had to close the lid but to my suprise even if i shut the comptuer down via the Fn Fx button or the start shutdown option and waited untill the computer fully shut down and then closed the lid it still did the same thing as i would close the lid it would power on only briefly then shut off as if it would totally loose power so now i am at a standstill and am asking for some help as i have no idea what this is other than the lid switch or something more familiar with these laptop models and it being something more of the internal hardware any help will work and i can post any type of diagnostic data needed thanks ps the laptop is officially a dv cl with a C D ghz processor gb of ddr mhz two hdds one has been replaced the os drive a gb wd black mb cache and the second is the factory installed hitatchi gb storage drive both independent from each other nbsp
Have you tried restoring the laptop to the original purchased state? Or even doing a Windows Restore to an earlier time?

Ok never had to ask a question on computers before so forgive me if i dont include all the relevant information I am basically seeking a second opinion on something that has happened to one of my computers Ill try and state this simply if that s possible HP Pavillion dv entertainment laptop Attempted to install windows Xp sp over original operating system of Windows Vista Had a couple of problems getting it to read the disk initially not sure why but eventually got it to read Halfway through setup it has to restart to complete the installation and then read from the disk again Pavillion problem, seeking professional advice. Hp but of course it didn t to read the disk Hp Pavillion problem, seeking professional advice. the drive makes crunching sounds i tried many a time to get it to read the disk to complete installation After many attempts the disk spun and completed the installation and after another restart the os didnt start up and i got a horrible STOP blue screen The blue screen is what I see now I assumed after so much mucking around that the installation just didn t load properly but the optical drive just couldn t seem to spin the disk for me to reinstall So I assumed twas the optical drive to be at fault I tryed many methods on the internet to install windows via usb stick i got some to work but the nasty stop blue screen continued to appear So i gave up took it to a laptop repair and hoped liked hell it was only the optical drive and that my usbing attempts just weren t working correctly and thats why i was getting the bluescreen Anyway their diagnosis was hardrive and optical drive were fine but the bios seemed to be corrupted somehow and they weren t sure whether it was due to firmware or software The Bios has never been update improperly its never even been touched so i don t seem to understand as to why it suddenly became corrupted It could well be the firmware which would make sense I went back to the guy and he told me a more in depth analysis of the situation as i only spoke to his employee the first time He told me that there were menus missing in bios and that was a sure bet that it was corrupted or a firmware problem I went home and checked pictures of HP Pavillion bios on the internet and it seemed to match and also on my hp the menus seem to match as well So basically seeking a second professional opinion on the matter as its a bit of money just to through away what was a reasonably well working computer and go out and by a new one I can get a picture of the STOP screen if anyone prefers I understand its hard to diagnosis anything further but as I said some extra information would be appreciated as my gut feeling is telling me its not that bad and could be fixed Anyway thanks for anybody s time Ash nbsp

Hi, and welcome. What graphic card are you using? Have you checked for windows 7 updates yet?http://www.sevenforums.com/graphic-cards/4698-hp-pavillion-dv6000-screen-resolution-problem.html
After following the OEM instructions by the book I still get a blinking cursor after POST.
- The Seagate copy util worked without any error dialogs.
- The bios sees the drive, POST has a line correctly indicating the drive.
- Jumpers are installed per the manual, the jumper loc is the far left position (Master ) for the 120GB and it is plugged in using the 'master' plug.
- I have used the Seagate util to reset the MBR.
- Tried the size-limit jumper located in the far right jumper location-
Response: cursor reacted the same way just blinked. System would not proceed and boot up.
Win XP, current on patches.
-Bios PhoenixBios 4.0 at 6.0.K
-Drive: Seagate ST3120026A Ultra ATA
-Previous drive: ST360020A Ultra ATA
Double boot using GRUB and SUSE 8.0
-CMOS set to AUTO.
Previous drive Seagate 60 GB worked fine, just got full.
With the Seagate utilities did you just copy all the files from the 60 or did you "clone" it ? ? ?
If not you can re-do the entire operation by returning the 60 to it's master position with the new one as slave...
Another thing to consider when working with cloned drives and i have learned the hard way in the past.
After a clone operation it is a good idea to install the newest cloned drive as master with no other HDD's connected and make sure it boots a few times successfully without any other HDD's in the system.
At that point it's usually safe to re-introduce the other HDD as a slave...
I have a HP Pavillion, model dv6700 which is unable to connect to certain wireless networks. I myself have Virgin wireless internet which the laptop connects to with no problems. However it does not connect to the wireless internet at my boyfriend's house which is a BT HomeHub 2.0. I have ensured that my wireless settings are all turned on.
After I type in the wireless key, it acts as though it is going to connect but then says that it is unable to due to 'user action'.
At least 5 other devices are able to connect to the wireless system so I do not understand the problem.
When I directly connect the Ethernet cable to the laptop, it connects fine to the intetnet, but this means I have to sit beside the HomeHub every time I need to use the internet so I was hoping that there was a way to fix it! =)
