Hello,

sorry for the late reply. I am not familiar with recovery console of the systemax, but i assume that all recovery disk are all the same.

can you show me a pic after you hit enter.

Do you know how to boot from cd? anyway booting from cd you can the information from your manual.

When using the the recovery disk, i think there are two option, either you retain the the original files only the windows system files will be deleted and restore and format the entire harddrive and refresh you system from first day you bought.

just insert your cd and boot your pc from cd rom and then you will be guided.

just tell me incase;

Wont boot/ says auto config over and over


Then use Recovery Console:
To boot from the Windows XP CD, insert it into the CD-ROMdrive on the problem system and press [Ctrl][Alt][Delete] to reboot thecomputer. Once the system begins booting from the CD, simply follow the promptsthat will allow the loading of the basic files needed to run Setup. When yousee the Welcome To Setup screen, press R to start the Recovery Console.

You'll then see a Recovery Console menu. It displays the foldercontaining the operating system's files and prompts you to choose the operatingsystem you want to log on to. Just press the menu number on the keyboard, andyou'll be prompted to enter the Administrator's password. You'll then findyourself at the main Recovery Console prompt.

After restarting windows use a system utility software like RegInOut.

Keep getting checkpoint errors, and have changed Sys Battery , reset Bios and when i boot it ,it goes to Dell logo and keeps trying to reboot. Windows will not load.


Try going to the BIOS and see if it reboots from there. If it does, then it is most probably a hardware problem. You can try re-seating the memory modules and If you have multiple modules, try them one at a time.
If it does not reboot while you are in the BIOS, then the problem lies on Windows. Get your DELL Restore CD or your Operating System CD and insert it to the CD-ROM drive. Reboot the computer and press F12 while seeing the Dell logo, that should give you the options to boot to CD-ROM. It will give you a quick prompt of "press any key to boot to cd..". Make sure you press the space bar during this time to initiate the boot from CD-ROM.
Once the Windows Setup loads, Choose "Recovery Console" to repair your computer. Just choose the installation you would like to repair (normally it's number 1) then it will ask you for the administrator password. By default, the password is blank, but if you set a password for admin then use that password.
Once you get to the prompt, Type this command. "CHKDSK /R" (without the quotes). It will initiate the repair for your OS. This might take an hour or so. Just wait for it to finish and it will automatically reboot your computer. Let the computer computer reboot normally. You should be able to get to your normal windows screen back.
Good Luck.

I have a emachines w 3107 I tried to use the system recoverey disk. I went through the whole process, Then when it re boots a error says NTLDR is compressed press alr cont del , And I get the same error...


An NTLDR is compressed error is pretty easy to fix(much better then NTLDR is missing errors!).

First you need to boot to the recovery console.

To boot to the recovery console follow these steps:
1. Insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer. Click(or press any key) to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted.
2. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
3. When prompted type "1" or if you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console.
4. When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
5. Now you should be at the command prompt and ready to repair the ntldr file!

Now all you need to do is enter the following commands(in order) and each command on a new line just like you see them here:

cd \
attrib -c ntldr
exit

Your computer should now reboot, and everything "should" work.

Hard drive failure


Hi, you have nothing to type there. You mean you have chosen the 1st section that opens recovery console,right? not that one. You should see the Terms of Agreement in your WinXP cd first, press F8. A section containing to install a Windows XP appears, Press Enter. Then that's the time it will search for your previous Win xp installation. In will then let you choose whether you will install a fresh copy of WinXP OR to Repair it. Choose the Repair. It will automatically repairs and format your Harddisk without deleting your files in it.  IF there's no Option to repair it, that's the time you will have to go to Recovery Console.
  • To run the Recovery Console from the Windows XP startup disks or the Windows XP CD-ROM, follow these steps: 
    Insert the Windows XP startup disk into the floppy disk drive, or insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer. 

    Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted.
    When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
    If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console.
    When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
    At the command prompt, type the appropriate commands to diagnose and repair your Windows XP installation. 

    For a list of commands that are available in Recovery Console, type recovery console commands or help at the command prompt, and then press ENTER. 

    For information about a specific command, type help commandname at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.
    To exit the Recovery Console and restart the computer, type exit at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.
If still you cannot get through to that, drop me a comment again and tell me what you have done. Feel free to ask me.

Please bare with me, as my experience on computers is limited.my friend owns an acer 530 notebook.She would like it to be restored back to factory,I got on the internet and found sketchy instructions on...


Nope. F2 will take you into what is known as the "BIOS". This is an area for changing basic hardware settings, and is not for you. =-]

If you have the recovery CD, it should prompt you to press a key when you first turn the computer on with the CD already inside. That is the standard process for just about every computer, but if for some reason nothing happens (Windows just loads without any prompts beforehand), then you may need to go into the BIOS to check that the CDROM drive is enabled as a possible boot device.

If that is the case, recovering the password is a whole different story, and is sometimes almost impossible on a laptop without specialty equipment.

Start off with the recovery disc, and see if that prompts you when the system is turned on... I suspect that *it* will prompt you to press F12.

And please let us know how that goes, incase I can give other solutions. (depending on where you get stuck)
