I'm hoping for some advice. I'm trying to reformat my Pavilion DV6205us back to factory condition. A while back I made the recovery DVDs. The DVDs claimed to have been made without error and the discs are clean and scratch free. When I try to use the recovery process I get an "Error 1005". I've tried this twice. The second time, rather than saying "OK" when the error came up, I selected "Canel". At that point I was asked for the second recovery disc. I inserted the second disc but after about 10 minutes I didn't see any progress and gave up. Save for added memory to the computer it is unmodified. I have not changed the hard drive.
So here are my questions:
1. Is this something I can get around?
2. Can I do a manual OS reinstall? My previous HP/Compaq as well as my Dell came with discs that let me choose between either a clean reinstall or reinstall windows without wiping out the harddrive. In this case I would prefer the wipe the hard drive option as it's easier. However, I can manual clean the harddrive if needbe.
The backup discs I made don't appear to be damaged in any way. I would have made a second copy but I don't think HP's software allowed me to make two copies. What can I do if my discs are defective?

Contact HP, tell them your created Recovery set fails:

Try removing all of the RAM except the smallest module. Then run the recovery again. Most of the time this will fix the issue. Vista sometimes does not run the recovery when there is to much RAM in the computer.

Before using the Recovery Disc, make sure the HDD is good. The Hard Disc Driver Test can performed either through [F2] Screen : Start up Diagnostics or through [F10] : Diagnostics <Tab>. The [F2] / [F10] should held while turning on the Computer to get to the respective windows. In most case, the reason for this error: 1005 is the Hard Driver failure

I have also G60t-200 laptop. I experienced the same Errror: 1005, while i was trying for system recovery using HP System Recovery DVD. The recovery process ran upto 28% and then it stopped with this error and it said that, " If this error continues then contact Hp support".
Please anybody can help us out.
