If you have the backup partition on your hard drive you could point the computer to that.

When you replace the motherboard/CPU you most likely need to re-install Windows on your hard disk with the HP recovery CD.
If you have a Windows installation CD you can use this to re-install Windows.
Boot up with your Windows installation CD to install the operating system on your hard disk, you will also need the product installation code, this is printed on the Windows label on the bottom of your laptop.

Cant restore to factory condition


HI......................


It should have come with a system restore disk. Back up what you want to save and load the disk and then reboot.

You can go to compaq.com and order the system restore disk if you can't find the one that came with the computer.

HP computers no1 they have the verry best recover system of all

I put in cd and it does not recognize it-i have a toshiba tecra 9000-do i have to press a key or something


The autoplay feature on some refurbished (and sometimes new) computers is at best unpredictable.

To find out if your disk is recognized, go to MY computer: It will display the drives and if they contain anything, it will show there. In the event the disk is not Labeled, double click on the CD rom icon, if the contents for the drive come up, your drive is ok, and the disk is too.
If the contents of the disk do not show up, but the drive is displayed, recycle the drive mechanism.
(open/close)
If that still does not do the trick, reboot your computer, and try again.

As a last resort, an external drive via a USB connection will give you the drive contents.

Good luck and don't forget to vote.

My laptop does not boot. it always ask for a cd to boot but i already reformat it.someone told me that it is a hard disk problem and advice me to replace my hard drive.


When the computer starts it flashes up press f2or delete or some other key to enter setup. Go through the settings and there should be one that will allow you to change the boot device. It sounds to me like it is set to boot from the cd rom drive only. Change it to boot from the hard drive and save changes to CMOS and restart the computer. The computer should now boot from the hard drive.

I need to restore my laptop to the factory settings. I have the recovery disks that came with it. What are the steps I need to take when using the operating system restore disc? I'm not familiar with...


Hello
First
what disk do you have?
one should be OS disk and a other should be drivers and software or a recovery disk.
if you have a label recovery disk start with that.
if you have an OS + driver disk start with the os disk.

put it in cd and press a key when it says so.
here is a very good guide to follow
after you installed the os then run the driver recovery disk just click next, its not that hard.
