HP Pavilion DV7 – Project – Repair

A client recently asked me to remediate all the issues he was having with his HP Pavilion dv7 laptop.  A quick diagnosis showed that it was riddled with malware and had a physical memory issue.  Instead of working through and removing the malware individually we decided it was best to format his hard drive and install his latest backup.  In addition to the format I replaced the RAM memory modules.
