Use the camera function on your cell phone; take picture of all cable connections
disconnect all cables to your computer
disconnect thumbscrews/screws holding computer cabinet shell at the back of computer
slide the cabinet shell forward exposing chasis frame. Lay computer on its side

important: Ground your body to the chassis frame (prevents static discharge damage)

Locate harddrive; with a magic marker ink one side to each of the two plugs and their sockets that are connected to the hard drive.(take picture maybe easer)
This is called making withness marks; it gives you a reference and orientation when you put things back together; the smaller plug is the power plug; the larger plug is for data.

Remove screws that secure harddrive to frame; Ground new harddrive to chasis; replace harddrive.

First step to take is to switch out the power cord and plug it in to a different outlet than you have it in now. Just to make sure its nothing outside of your computer. If you do this and still find that there is no power, it could be one of a few things, most likely the power supply. It could be your power switch, your cmos battery or your power supply, which is what generates the power to your computer and what the plug is inserted into in the back. You may see a green light on the back of the power supply, but this does not mean that it is still good. Depending on your level of comfort and knowledge base in computers, you could replace this power supply yourself. It can be costly to take it in as the part itself can range from about $60-100+ depending on what you get put in and where you purchase the part from. This is not including the labor cost that they will charge to install it. I would be happy to walk you through the steps of changing this out if this is what you would like to do. Please let me know and I will list steps and where to look for the best priced power supply. You can also email me if that would be easier for you. Hope this helped somewhat, please let me know what our next step will be.
Thanks,

you should use wpa2, its much stronger than wep, and you choose your own password.
Wep gives you a key.
Log into your router. If you dont know how to do this google your router and it will tell you how to do it.
My router is accessed by typing 192.168.0.1 into my browser.
you then need to know the log in name and password, sometimes printed onto the router, my default was admin and no password, sometimes administrator and password is password .
look for wifi security and your setting are there. this site has most router models instructions http://www.routerpasswords.com/

... and tell me, what is your question. The hard drive doesnt care what the mother board looks like with the following proviso ... you have a IDE drive not ... the new mother board must support it. You have a serial drive, the mother board myst support it.

As long as you can plug in the drive, the drive doesnt really care.

check to see if the memory card came loose and press it back in firmly

HP Pavilion... | Answered on Aug 29, 2009


If your system is a HP Pavilion then at startup or boot you can press F8 or F10 Im not sure about the exact keys, but hp stores a recovery of the OS on a partition which is usually hidden and does not have access from within the OS.
So try using function key that works for your system, the recovery will start automatically.
but remember this deletes all the data on the primary partition ie the OS partition.

If this thing does not work check if there is a recovery partition that needs to be burnt on the CD/DVD.

Else you need a OS disc and format the PC and reinstall the OS

It could be a power supply, but it could be a number of other hardware components too. A new power supply is less than $50, you can get them at Best Buy or Newegg.com. Any computer place can install it for you. I suggest you take it somewhere to make sure the power supply is the problem.

HP Pavilion... | Answered on Jun 03, 2009


OK, this can be a hard thing to fix. Most of the time, the power supply is the first thing to go on a PC. However, when you stated that the motherboards LED came on after you unpluged the PS from the motherboard, it leads me to believe that the motherboard is the issue but the power supply might be outputting higher voltages and the motherboard might be shutting down. Since the power supply is cheaper then most motherboards, I would recommend getting a new one. Check ebay for a new power supply. It should be about $20 with shipping. If the same thing happens, then you need a new motherboard...

try reinstalling windows

HP Pavilion... | Answered on Mar 31, 2009


I am assuming you are wanting install this on a HP machine, so all you should need to do, is go to the HP website if you use the machine you want to install it on, the web site should be able to detect, your make and model, and if any software is missing it will direct you to the page where you can download the software, and install it in the same way you install any other application in windows.

The 0xc0000185 error simply means that the computer can't communicate with the CD drive. It could be due to a faulty CD drive or media, a bad connection, faulty interface, bad memory, power supply etc. You will need to isolate the problem further, why couldn't you boot normally? check the BIOS settings again and try clearing the CMOS memory correctly as described in the manual (just removing the battery may not be good enough).

old post, I do only 2018 posts)
first off why the huge contradiction even HP and ASUS mixed.
photo of laptop, and title, NOTEBOOK
and texting a Desktop, but must be a so i moved you....
p6126f PAVILION. it is. no monitor stated, at all. no errors show on monitor, like no signal?
the PC blue light means it thinks its one.
the fans must blow, both PSU and CPU or you have no 12vdc power.
the uSB ports have power, but that happens even with PC in standby mode, or even turned off, that is how I charge my cell phone PC off, using my USB ports,
what matters is:
1: monitor errors, seen
2: Fans.
3; you clicked shut down via what< windows, linux what?
if you CLICKED shut down and the fans don't go dead
that means your OS is corrupted. for sure.
top reasons are bad drivers, and vista can't shut down.
or worse. there is always that. (virus)

I'd DUMP vista, nobody on earth wants to help anyone with a dead vista , horrid VISTA, did you know MS in there great wisdom failed to add recovery mode to vista, yah sux, swap gas. that.
upgrade to w7 and end this silly mess called vista.
w7-64bit is best here, with full HP support seen here.


this is not spam, its the real HP, the place with no malware,etc.

Take it back to the retailer. Unless it is more than a year old. The graphics chip or screen has failed.

This error comes up if you have replaced the branded drive with an oem one, the original drive is watermarked and the OEM one is not, the restore disks look for this watermark, and will not install if it cannot find it, it then gives you the error above

One of the advantages of owning an HP Pavilion includes playing your favorite DVDs conveniently at home or anywhere with your HP Pavilion laptop or notebook.
Whether you have Windows 7 or Windows Vista, your HP Pavilion may experience problems playing your DVDs.
For example, sometimes you may have a DVD movie skip while playing, which can happen frequently with a lot of DVD handling, such as with rental DVDs.
Perhaps your DVD player does not recognize the DVD and rejects it.
When you troubleshoot your HP Pavilion DVD player, you become more acquainted with your HP Pavilion, plus you can get back to movie-watching sooner.
Clean the DVD if you notice any skipping while playing or if the DVD stops.
You can clean the DVD by wiping it from the center to the edge using a lint-free cloth and filtered water.
Avoid watching DVD movies while you have a virus system scan operating on your computer system.
Reschedule the virus scan to another time or disconnect the scan temporarily and then reconnect the scan when you have finished watching your movie.

Disconnect from the Internet while watching movies.
Other programs on your HP computer can access the Internet and disrupt the movie as you watch.
Turn off your printer, scanners and other external devices connected to your HP Pavilion while you watch movies.
This allows your computer to concentrate its resources on your DVD player.
Install the latest DVD player updates from the HP Support and Drivers website for the best DVD performance.
Test the DVD Drive
Insert the DVD into the HP Pavilion DVD drive. Close any window that opens automatically.
Click "Start" and then "Computer."
Right-click on the DVD player icon and then choose "Explore."
Check to make certain you placed the DVD into a DVD drive.
If the HP Pavilion DVD drive ejects the disc or prompts you to insert a disc, it does not recognize the DVD.
You can also try inserting another DVD disc. If you do not see folders appear, such as VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TX, you may have a defective disc, or the DVD may not be compatible with your DVD drive, such as a Blu-ray disc.
Try a different DVD movie.
Insert a regular CD into the DVD drive to see whether HP can read it, after you have tried playing several DVDs.
If the drive can read the CD, it may not be the DVD drive.
Have the internal ribbon cable replaced if the drive cannot read the CD, or have the DVD drive replaced if a new cable does not help.
Reinstall DVD Software Windows 7
Click "Start," "All Programs," "Recovery Manager," and then "Recovery Manager." Click "Continue" if prompted by Windows 7. This will bring up the HP Recovery Manager window.
Click "Software Program Reinstallation" and then "Next."
This will bring up the HP Software Program Reinstallation window, which allows you to reinstall the programs that originally came with your HP Pavilion.
Click "Next" and then follow the instructions provided.
Restart your computer after the driver installation.
Select "Next" and follow the directions provided to recover and reinstall the DVD player software that came with your HP Pavilion.
Reinstall DVD Software Windows Vista
Click "Start," "All Programs," "PC Help and Tools" and then "Recovery Manager." This will bring up an HP window called Recovery Manager to help you recover HP Pavilion drivers and programs.
Click "Next" and then select "Yes" or "No" when prompted to perform a program recovery.
Select "Next" and follow the directions provided to recover and reinstall the DVD player software that came with your HP Pavilion.
HP Pavilion PC Laptop Blue Ray not working
Blu-ray disc technology continues to improve and advance, so simply having a Blu-ray player in your computer doesn't guarantee that all discs will play immediately.
The Hewlett Packard DV7 Entertainment Notebook has a Blu-ray player, but as the technology advances you have to keep the software and firmware on the system up-to-date to ensure compatibility.

Reboot your Pavilion notebook.
A minor miscommunication between the disc drive and Windows Vista or 7 may lead to a disc read error.
Rebooting clears your system's memory and forces Windows to reload all of your device drivers, which may resolve a minor kink.
Play your Blu-ray disc to see if the problem is solved.
Open QuickPlay and update it.
Double-click the "Update" button to open "Updates and Enhancements."
Double-click "Get the latest QuickPlay updates."
Select "Download now!" on the next screen and wait while the file downloads and installs.
Close and reopen QuickPlay and insert the Blu-ray disc again.

Update MediaStart regularly.
This program tracks updates for your Blu-ray player's firmware, the software coded onto the device to tell it what kinds of discs it can read.
Open MediaStart and select "Update your MediaStart." Updates are only listed when available, so if you don't see an update, check back in a few weeks.
Each update for the Blu-ray player enables you to play more recent discs, since some interactive features may not be compatible with older software.
Restart after each update.

Update your software on a disc-by-disc basis.
According to HP, some Blu-ray discs have special content protection and require new codes for you to play the movie.
These codes or disc-specific updates are stored on the disc.
If you are prompted to download a free update after inserting a disc, follow the prompts to do so. The updates will be different for each disc.

Check to make sure your player will play regular content if you continue to have issues with Blu-ray discs. It may be that the error is related to the drive, not the type of media.
Try a CD-ROM or a standard DVD to see if the disc responds.
If not, contact HP for a replacement or for drive-related troubleshooting.
