I attempted a factory recovery to this HP Pavilion Entertainment PC laptop but I am getting the BSOD and researching online I am finding different causes and solutions. The recovery did not recognize either the DVD drive nor the Sound and I still keep getting that BSOD message, I tried Startup repair, that did not work. I would like to try to reload Vista from a retail disk but in the boot order, the only option showing is the HDD, in the BIOS I am seeing all boot options are showing and no matter what I select to boot off either a USB cd drive or internal cd rom, none of them works.
I then ran the Recovery again and now anytime I restart I am seeing that BSOD only for a split second before it goes to windows but the system still does not recognize the DVD rom, the Sound and USB. I tried installing the chipset and audio drivers from HP's site but no change, does this mean that the DVD, USB port and sound module is shot? As you can see there isn't a Sound device showing nor the DVD?
