Keep pushing F10 when computer is booting up. Should start up recovery. Put in recovery disc while computer is starting up.

Need HP Pavillion a6120n recovery discs


Check in your users manual as a recovery partition usually exists hidden on the hard drive. You should be able to use this to either create recovery discs or to restore directly from the hidden partition. But you do need HP instructions on how to make this happen correctly. I suggest you visit the HP website, select technical support as a destination. From there you will be asked for your computer model number and offered a number of options that should make things easier.
Good Luck!

media used matters.
  1. go to Device manager and see if cam is there, click update.
  2. go to HP, see link below, get the drivers you deleted.
  3. run scan tools to learn what camera is there and get driver from the maker of cam. ask.


what you need is the HP driver.
load all these, cept BIOS.

i guessed 64bit

this is your support page, get them while still there (be savvy)

Need to run HP PC System Recovery on Pavillion a775c. Files corrupted - fixing this older computer for a friend. No virus protection. Only one user account (the administrator). Cannot start any program...


One way but its drastic, you could replace the Hard Drive. It makes me think that it might be the hard drive because windows cannot boot from the drive. Its pretty easy to replace a hard drive, then run the system recovery disc.

HP Pavillion DV9000t ''Unrecoverable error has occured''


The recovery disk is defective so the install is bad. Install using another disk (even a generic retail one of the same type will do) and your key.

Hp pavillion dv6915n - no hard drive detected


We do not say that the hard drive is damage maybe the IDE was faulty already. You may open your laptop and check the hard drive. Try to replace the IDE to check if the hard drive is good.

My husband just gave me his HP pavillion m7350n and it has alot of programs i dont want. What is the easies way of go back to the stuff that came with the HP. I guess i want to know how to do a recovery is...


Most systems come with a recovery drive on their hard disk. Smone times it takes the last drive letter before the CD-ROM drive. If that is the case with you, locate the drive by
1. Double click my computer icon on your desktop
2 Locate the drive that has the recovery data
3 Run the recovery
Make sure you read the instratuctions on the sreen and follow the steps you are asked to follow on the recovery wizard.

This will retore your PC to the factory setting.
But note that most factory seting come with evalution copies of original software like Microsoft Office, etc you may need to get the licenses for these software after the retore to make them genuie.

Hp pavillion zv6000 no disks need full restore...


Yes, the recovery partition is 100% true, and I've actually used it to repair a lot of systems, simply because it saves you time, stress and energy.
It is always on a smaller partition on your hard disk, and it is also hidden, so you wont see it.
To use the recovery partiton, you have first of all take note that you must backup ALL your documents first, because the use of the recovery partition will Actually format your harddrives and restore your system back to the factory settings, i.e the way you bought it.
Now, provided your own recovery partition is still intact and not yet corrupt, this is how to use it.
When you power up your system, Keep tapping the F11 key, i.e the F11 function key.
This will invoke the command that boots up your recovery parttion and lets your system boot from it.
Thereafter, you can just follow the on-screen instructions to complete the recovery, and again PLEASE remember to backup ALL your necessary documents first.
Hope this helps you out.
Goodluck

HP Pavillion Programs freezing


Suggest restoring the system to factory settings. You will lose all of your data so back it up first.

Restore is either on disks or on recovery partition of hard drive. If you have recovery disks put first one in and reboot computer.

When the computer starts you should see an option to hit F10 for System Restore/Recovery. Hit F10, click advanced settings and choose Destructive Restore. Follow the prompts.

Will need to reload all programs after restore is done that did not come with computer such as Office.

Hope this helps.
Thanks!
