Specs: Windows Vista
I hope someone can help me. My daughter has an HP Pavilion dv2000 laptop a few yrs old when she tried to start it an error came up bootmgr image is corrupt, I tried to get it to boot but nothing seems to work, f8 , all I can do is F10 and check the boot order, I did a Hard Drive test testes fine,I tried a few vista cd but I get a message the file header checksum does not match the computed checksum, I tried doing a memory test by pressing F11 or ctrl F11 on startup when the first screen comesup but i get The file header checksum does not match the computed checksum , At this point we dont care about saving anything just like to get t back to factory setting reinstall the os, Any help please and thank you.

... if the ram chips are Not the same size

... I have found on certain models that the larger ramchip does have to be in its (first slot?) particular slot for it to be registered or it'll only read the smaller sized chip!
