I decided to clean up my HP Notebook DV6830us running on Windows Vista by restoring factory settings. I load my recovery discs and after running through both discs I get a message that "recovery failed" I tried several more times only to get same message so I call HP and request new discs.
I run the new discs and upon insertion of disc 2 I get this long error code 0x4001100200001005. I call HP tech support and after several attempts and several Hard Disc self tests (all of which passed) they send me new discs. The error is still there after inserting disc 2.
They tell me that my computer is out of warranty and I can only send it in for repair which will cost around $400. I don't understand what is wrong. My computer is not quite 2 years old. Can anyone PLEASE give me some other options to try?

I have almost the exact same problem. My Pavillion DV9000 will not even load the DVD-Rom to boot anything. It was working PERFECT before I used the restore DVD's....

I have a notebook 6700 (6830us) of which the extended warranty replaced the hard drive and then I had to order the Recovery CD set and started "the process"-- IT TAKES PATIENCE !!
I did run into this error after receiving the first recovery cd set and called tech support once this error came up three different times after asking for CD#2 at 80percent thru the process ---
after "staying calm but firm" with tech support I DID RECEIVE A SECOND REPLACEMENT SET OF THE RECOVERY CD'S and -- one of the things I read while searching the HP error messages issues and trying to find anything to help me thru this "mess" was a help file with a statement
BE SURE THE WIRELESS BUTTON IN THE FRONT OF THE MACHINE is set to on (with the blue light) even though the system I had connected was not wireless and via ethernet (wasn't close to the network connections and setup) but for some reason once the process requested to "insert cd#2" when at 80percent -- the second recovery set took FOREVER it seemed to get passed that "hurdle" but it did complete the restore.
The other requirements that I also found to be most important was the following:
** BE SURE AC POWER CONNECTED AT ALL TIMES TO THE MACHINE
** During the whole recovery process the system WILL RESTART/continue software
re installation/AND restart again--many many times. So many I really lost count in my detailed notes!!
**DO NOT CLOSE THE LID OF THE MACHINE WHILE performing this WHOLLLEEE PROCESS. You will receive additional stop errors and I ended up doing the full image partition, recovery process THREE FULL TIMES before it completed successfully. DO NOT INTERRUPT as long as you see on the taskbar at the bottom of the screen the
following: "FBI GUI MANAGER" this is the HP software installation process/program that took approx four to six hours to totally complete.
Another link with info that might help is the help issues I searched and found info pertaining to --
"OBTAINING A REPLACEMENT RECOVERY KIT" as well as "RECEIVING A SUPPLEMENTAL RECOVERY DISK"
Hope my notes here helps (even a little bit) because for me this FULL RECOVERY has taken me every hour and minute without leaving my machine (and just watching n watching n watching) for the past FOUR DAYS!!
But it's working ---- that's how I send you this reply!!

whenever you face such problems thr is always one great solution for all this...
Get Windows Vista OEM copy & Install it Fresh
First look under laptop which copy of version of vista was pre-loaded
Vista Home Basic or Vista Home Premium.
Grab Windows Vista Home Premium SP2 or Windows Vista Home Basic OEM SP2 copy from shop or download it. (Dont buy new copy, just a DVD so you can install it)

What is the exact model of your notebook?
NOTE: Do not provide the serial number?
Have you tested the hard drive to verify there is no issue with it? If not, access BIOS and the storage or diagnostics menu will have a Hard Drive test (sometimes called DPS test). Run it and let me know the results.
