    Hi - I just installed a new Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 2250GB IDE ATA100 hard drive on my HP a620n after blue screen messages and black screen. PRIMARY MASTER HARD DISK S.M.A.R.T STATUS BAD... Immediate backup and replace hard disk drive. :( I got into HP PC System Recovery with my old HP Recovery which I made when I got the comp 3 yrs ago. Error Messages:
    c:\1386\Apps\App14771\App14771.exe c:\1386\Apps\App17035\App\17035.exe
    They both say "cannot be recovered". I always keep retrying, but recovery process is still only at 8% after 6.5 hrs. Is it a waste of time copying files when these error messages keep coming up every 5 min?

    Sounds like the drive is dead. Is that the only drive in the system?

    I certainly hope not, as I just bought this one today. Is there a chance there's a problem with the motherboard? BTW, still in "Completing Recovery Partition" how long can this possibly take? It's been about 7 hours and it's only at 12%. I made this Recovery Disk when I bought the comp, so there isn't a whole lot of stuff on there. Isn't it really only to bring it to the point of what it came with when purchased? Should I stop this System Recovery?

    You're right. It should not take this long. The drive is probably defective. Did you get it locally?

    Thanks Elvandil, I will just the recovery. I guess I need to findAny idea that the error messages mean? I guess I need to find an O/S to install.....or wait for HP to send me something. And yes, it is the only hard drive. Thanks for your help.
