My HP dv2000 Win XP laptop died after overheating. My husband bought another dv2000 without a hard drive and inserted the hard drive from our original computer.
The new laptop boots to the HP and Win XP flash screens, then flashes a couple of paragraphs (white letters, blue background) too quickly to read, goes to black screen for a few seconds, and repeats the cycle.
I booted off a mini-XP boot disk and was able to see files on the transferred hard drive. The device manager shows PCI drives with an exclamation point and the message that the right PCI drivers aren't installed (I can't duplicate the message because I now can't figure out how I got to that screen from the mini-XP boot disk.)
What can I do to integrate the old hard drive with the new laptop, and get Windows working?
I didn't lose any files when the original laptop died, but it was running an older Adobe Master Suite that I haven't been able to get working on my newer Win 7 machines, and I would really like to get it running on the dv2000 again.
