Sounds like you lost your drivers..reinstall Windows drivers and operating software as well if needed

HP Pavilion... | Answered on Jul 22, 2017


Hi Bob.

You will have to take the side panel off the computer and check that the power cable is connected to the DVD/RW, if it is and you have no LED indicators or the tray won't open it is a strong possibility that that the drive itself has failed and you will need to replace it with a new one. Optical drives are very cheap these days not costing much over 20 dollars or 10 pounds. DVD optical drives are plug and play so the operating system will already have the drivers preinstalled.






Regards.

If you have the speaker/headset connected to the right port and still don't have any sound. It may be the sound driver. What you can do is to download and install the sound driver for your computer. I'm not sure what is the operating system of the computer that you have.

For windows XP, you can click on this link to download the driver.

All other driver for other OS, click on this link and choose your OS.

Do you have wireless on your desktop? Also, it might be a PCI card (meaning no real switch) if you have wireless on your PC.

If this is not the solution you are looking, write back.

reinstall your PC's sound drivers using the drivers disk which came with the PC.
Alternatively, go to the HP website and use their automatic update service to update and reinstall your sound drivers. www.hp.com/support

If reinstalling the sound drivers fails, you may have a logic fault with your sound system, take the PC to a professional for this as this is part of the mainboard.

There may be no problem here. Has it always done this? Usually when executing some major tasks the CPU gets hotter and sends a signal that it requires the fans to work harder to keep from overheating. This may be normal.
hope this helps!

in your android phone's settings enable or access developer options and turn on usb debugging,( if you don't know how to access developer options you can google your android phones model and android version and how to enable usb debugging) once you enable it just plug it into your laptop and it should recognize it and automatically download the correct driver, if not, go to your phones manufacture's website and look for driver downloads for your model and android version. you can also google this to save time.

A DVD player that is an integral part of the laptop does not need drivers to make it play discs. If there is no driver shown, maybe the DVD unit is faulty?
All laptops will play CD/DVD from boot without drivers. The drivers are there to allow you to do specifics to the DVDs.

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.
