Your title says you have an AMD CPU but your text says you have an Intel CPU. Which is it?

HP Pavilion... | Answered on Dec 17, 2010


If you have built in 10/100 RJ45 then any network connection is possible.

One to one, you can connect to any built in 10/100 RJ45 equipped computer with a 'cross-over' network cable.

More commonly you can connect to a 'router' which allows a number of computers to connect to each other and to the internet . Use a search engine to find net setup on the 'web.
This is a very large subject so you need to decide what you want to do first!

Something's gliched, and the only thing I can think of is to run 'msconfig' and remove the PA from the startup programs.

This could be for numerous reasons

1. the disc is not compatable with your drive ie its a cheap branded one so get a decent branded spindle of discs ie TDK or tayo yuden or the likes

2. The disc is blank

3. Is this only with blank dvds ( dvd-r, dvd+r, dvd-rw, dvd+rw ) ?

4, can you play or read normal cd's just not dvd's ?

I had a similiar problem when my old dvd rom drive was getting old and sometimes it would work and others it wouldnt the only other thing I can think of is to ensure the chipset drivers ie the IDE / sata drivers are up to date and also are there any firmware updates for the dvd drive ?

Also ensure if there are any jumper pins ensure they are set correctly and that the data cable and power cables are seated firmly as per the other suggestion.

WIth the prices of dvd drives now it would be easier to buy a new one and replace it.

HP Pavilion... | Answered on Apr 10, 2009


If you stick an audio CD in the drive will it play? If so then the OS can read the drive, if not the drive could be dirty or just defective. Also, Windows XP will not burn DVDs natively, I recommend downloading this software http://cdburnerxp.se/.

most likely it was the psu. You can actually test it yourself by buying a psu tester made by Antec that you should be able to buy in stores. It's a cheaper alternative to buying a PSU and just hoping that was the problem.

Hi, You said ALL your games are choppy ....Conan is a demanding game ..
Example:

I have seen it run on a MSI board with 2 Gs of PC6400 (800mhz) / AM2 4800 X2 (2.5Ghz) with an AGP!!! GS7800 Nvidea video card (which was a good card in its day...42Ghz bandwidth) ...it ran at about 30fps on Medium settings which is livable???...

The first thing to do is to make sure you have all the latest drivers for your Motherboard from HP (made by Asus for HP )
also make sure Windows OS it self is all up to date ....
The video card is 8800 Nvidea ? which one?
Go to the Nvidea and get the lastest drivers for it ...this is MOST IMPORTANT ...
You also have onboard Graphics card 6150 ...go to Device Manager and see what is listed....To access Device Manger Go to ....Start>Control panel > Systems ( maintenance) and select Device Manager....click the + sign next to Display adapters and if the (6150 onboard graphics adapter) is listed with the 8800 right click on the "6150 " choose Properties and make sure it says..... ( do not use (disable) under .".Device usage."....
....Apparently these can run concurrently

HP says PC6400 Ram (800 mhz) will run on this board.....a PRICEY option of course
NOTE: All RAM isn't created equal it is best to use a Quality RAM from the SAME manufacturer //try not to mix n match

Lastly there's the Power Supply ...the new Video card will draw more power ....a good 500 plus watt PS with good Amps well
across the Voltage rails 3/5/12 .....25A plus is a good target
Again more money :)

Also turn OFF Programs while gaming I do no matter how fast the Rig is .... ie Antivirus...etc..... every little bit helps

Do the Driver updates and see what happens ...Good Luck

This combo should play games no problem ....more specs please...like what Motherboard /ram speed and such

HP Pavilion... | Answered on May 28, 2008


What is the Name and model number of your motherboard

The nforce 430 is an older chipset model and may not use the full capacity of the Phenom processor ...some boards won't even boot and there are Bios updates available for others ...etc

The onboard graphics (geforce 6150 se) is negated by the 8800 GTX ...good card......the problem isn't your video card

Your also running PC5300 ,,667mhz ram ....if board is capable of PC6400 ...800mhz ....there could be another speedup

The bottlenck seems to be with the board and possibly Ram

(Again MB model and name)

Also make sure you have all the latest drivers for Vcards ...chipsets BIOS etc......

you can try going into your control panel and look for the speaker icon click in there and you should be able to set your sound settings.

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).

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.

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.
