Hi , My HP Pavilion dv7-4276nr Laptop is not booting and getting below Error,when i run the diagnostics after completing ~40% its terminating and showing the same error again. Error Details:- SMART Hard Disk Error The SMART Hard disk check has detected an importannt failure.To ensure not data loss,Please backup the conetent immediatelyand run the Hard Disktest in System Diagnostics. Hard Disk 1 (301) Please help me on how to resolve this issue. Guru.
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 @guru99! I'm sorry to say that, but this error may indicate that your HDD is failing and needs to be replaced. If your notebook is still in warranty you can contact the support, but in case you're out of warranty and would like a guide on replacing the hard drive yourself I would be able to recommend you some replacement. Hope this helps and best of luck!

Baselo Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!What will work is restoring your machine to its original factory condition using HP Recovery Media.This is a set of DVDs and a CD, or USB stick, that will erase the hard drive (removing all data, settings, and applications, reinstall the original OS, drivers, and some HP Utilities. In some cases, you may be able to order a USB stick instead of disks. You have to order these from HP; they can not be downloaded.You can look online for Recovery Media starting with the linked paged: http://support.hp.com/us-en/driversOnce there, input your Product name or number. On your Software and Drivers Download page, select your Operating System and and Version. Click "Update". If HP Recovery Media is available for your machine, down near the bottom of the page, you will see an entry for Order Recovery Media-CD/DVD/USB. Click the "+" symbol to expand that entry and click on Order Media for details.Or, if you prefer, you can do the same by contacting HP Customer Service:If you live in the US or Canada, contact information is on this page: http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/phone-assist.html#section1If you live elsewhere, contact information is on this page: http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/ww-contact-us.htmlNOTE: After you get through, stay on the line until you are finally able to talk to some one -- it can take a while!---------------------------------------However, HP Customer Support is generally not available on the weekends, so you might have to wait until Monday to contact them.---------------------------------------If HP no longer provides Recovery Media for your model, a couple of other sites you can check are: http://www.computersurgeons.com/ and http://www.restoredisks.com/Good Luckhttp://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Operating-System-and-Recovery/pavilon-dm4-recovery/td-p/5733414
i have a Pavilion and when watching videos or listening to music the volume will go away or turn way down but the actual volume settings do not change just the volume its self. I have tried reinstalling the drivers and ran all the test. I have also shut off my mic and told it to do nothing in the auto volume settings yet it still randomly decides to turn its self down. I have spend hours with tech support doing the same things over and over and even rebooted my entire system. I have only had this HP for a month. never had a problem in 7 years with my old hp and this one is about to go in the trash.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Audio/sound-issues-pavilon/td-p/5850816
Hi there, I am having problems trying to make a clean install of Windows 7 on my HP DV6000. I have rpeviously formatted and installed operating systems on many computers, but this one is giving me to fight!
The main problem is that the instalation never continues from the "Windows is loading files" at the start of the CD booting!
Does HP or this pavilon have any issues?
help will be appreciated!
Make your HP REcovery Disks or a backup image so you have a path back to factory condition. You can also extract apps from the HP REcovery disks using this method: http://www.sevenforums.com/installat...tml#post488270
Next make sure you have the latest BIOS version update from HP Support Downloads webpage for your model, which is safest installed from Windows.
CHeck also in the BIOS for SATA controller setting: try AHCI first, then IDE if necessary.
Now wipe the HD to get the cleanest possible slate: SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation
Clean Install Windows 7
If install fails again, remove all but 2gb of RAM and test your ram with memtest for 5-6 passes. http://www.memtest86.com/download.html
Then test your HD using maker's full diag/repair CD scan: http://www.tacktech.com/display.cfm?ttid=287
Where did you get Win7? DId you burn it yourself?

Help! I have an HP Pavilion a520n that was handed down to me from my brother-in-law. Being free I couldn't pass it up but there are a few issues I hope you can help me with.
The card-reader does not work, neither does the 3.5' floppy drive. I put the memory card from my digital camera in the reader but the drive is not recognized when I click on My Computer.
Drive "A" does show in My Computer but when putting in a disk and clicking on the icon the drive light does not turn on and the window pops up stating to insert a disk in drive A:
I am running Window's XP Pro 2002 with Service Pack 2. I downloaded the driver off HP's website but trying to install it I get the message that the card reader is not installed.
Hello - I would be extremely grateful if someone coudl hep me, please!! I haven't used this particular laptop for years, but I desperately need to get back on it to retrieve some files. The laptop seems to work fine, but when I've turned it on a black screen appears with Enter Password in blue - it doesn't look like the normal Windows page that I can remember. It looks as though it's in some sort of safe mode or something. I don't know what this password is. If I enter it incorrectly too many times it says System Disabled  Can anyone please advise? Thanks so much

NOTE: Please provide the following information for a more detailed response: http://www.techsupportforum.com/foru...ta-452654.html
While waiting for a reply:
I suggest starting all troubleshooting with the following diagnostic tests (located at this link: Hardware Diagnostics ). They'll save you a lot of time and heartache if there is a hardware failure, and you'll have the disks on hand in case you need them in the future:
Please start by running these bootable hardware diagnostics:
Memory Diagnostics (read the details at the link)
Hard Drive Diagnostics (read the details at the link) - Test ALL of the hard drives.
Also, please run one of these free, independent online malware scans to ensure that your current protection hasn't been compromised: Free Online AntiMalware Resources (read the details at the link)
There are also free, bootable antivirus disks at this link: Free Online AntiMalware Resources - Bootable Disks
The BSOD is a STOP 0x124.
This is most likely a hardware error - which includes:
- compatibility issues
- low-level driver problems
Daemon Tools (and Alcohol % software) are known to cause BSOD's on Win7 systems due to the sptd.sys driver.
Please uninstall the program, then use the following free tool to ensure that the troublesome sptd.sys driver is removed from your system (pick the 32 or 64 bit system depending on your system's configuration): DuplexSecure - FAQ
I believe that you have Comodo installed on your system. Try uninstalling it to see if that helps.
AMD OverDrive (AODDriver2.sys) is either a stand-alone application, or a component of the AMD VISION Engine Control Center. This driver is known to cause BSOD's on some Win7 systems.
Please uninstall all ATI stuff from Control Panel...Programs...Uninstall a program
Then, download and install a fresh copy of the ATI drivers from Global Provider of Innovative Graphics, Processors and Media Solutions | AMD
Then use the ATI uninstall manager to uninstall the Catalyst Control Center (CCC).
If the device (AODDriver or AODDriver4.01) remains a problem in perfmon /report, open Device Manager, select the "View" item.
Then select "Show hidden devices" and scroll down to the Non-Plug and Play Drivers section.
Locate the AODDriver entry, right click on it and select "Uninstall". Reboot for changes to take affect.
If overclocking, please stop. Remove the overclock and return the system to stock/standard values while we're troubleshooting. Once the system is stable again, feel free to resume the overclocking.
Further info on BSOD error messages available at: http://www.carrona.org/bsodindx.html
The following info is just FYI, I've already addressed the issues that I saw in the above paragraphs:
3RD PARTY DRIVERS PRESENT IN THE DUMP FILES
- Create a System Restore Point prior to doing any of this. DO NOT mess with the drivers themselves - leave the Windows\System32\drivers directory alone unless we specifically direct you to it!
- Please either update the older drivers from the device manufacturer's website - or uninstall them from your system. Reference links are included below.
- DO NOT use Windows Update or the Update Drivers function of Device Manager.
- Please feel free to post back about any drivers that you are having difficulty locating.
- Windows Update exceptions may be noted below for Windows drivers.

hi all i write this post becouse i realy suprised yesterday... My pavilon 15-ab291sa is 3months new and when i start use Ashampoo Movie Studio Pro 2 to create and build my movies my laptop stop working... Graphic card is realy low, and i thinking to add one more and that is the qyeston, can i add 1 more good graphic card to my laptop ???
robcioslaw Sorry to say this, but you're operating under a misunderstanding, as laptops to do not have customer-replaceable graphics "cards". Instead, they have a graphics processor (GPU) that is soldered to the system board which also contain the CPU chip. While these are sometimes replaceable, that involves sending the PC to an HP Service Center and paying a LOT of money to have it disassembled, have the system board replaced, and have it reassembled -- typically considerably more money than simply buying a more powerful laptop. So basically, it is not practical to upgrade the graphics on a laptop.

I kept getting a blue screen with an error code 0xc0000185. I ordered the recovery Disks from HP but when I went to recover the machine, it sort of reads the cd and then I get the HP logo and the circle just spins and spins. We left it alone for hours and nothing. I ran a Hard Drive Test and it said Hard Drive Short DST Check: FAILEDthen gave this Failure ID: 63621R-7AQ87K-MFPV6K-60XL03Product K7U05UA HARD DRIVE 1 SYSTEM EXTENSIVE TEST: FAILED Any idea what I can do? It is just out of warranty- Of Course.
Hi, The 24 character error id does confirm a failure of the short Disk Self Test and would indicate that the Hard Drive is failing and needs to be replaced. This is also consistent with the issues you describe. If you would like a guide on replacing the Hard Drive yourself, please let me know.
