Well if it is still under warranty and there is a heap of data you need to backup... the answer would be no.

p.s the recovery cd might have a option which will repair the current os without formatting the drives. That all depends on whats exactly wrong...

cheers

My HP 8020N is beeping with some blue instructions, it crashes and beebs then repeat the same thing when trying to rebooth


You are experiencing what we affectionately call "The Blue Screen of De##h", which is causing the PC to crash and reboot in a never-ending cycle. There are a few things that you can try to fix the situation. The first, and easiest, is to press the F8 key during bootup and try to go to SAFE MODE. If you can do that, then you can go to SYSTEM PROPERTIES under COMPUTER, select the SYSTEM PTOTECTION tab, and click on SYSTEM RESTORE. This will allow you to roll the computer back to a previous configuration, since it is likely that the crash could be caused by a corrupted or failed update. If you cannot get to SAFE MODE during bootup, you options get more limited. Most PCs today do not come with a Windows Installation disk, so using that and booting in the REPAIR area is not likely an option. This leaves you with either reinstalling using the recovery disk set (if you have one) or with the recovery partition. The downside of these options is that they overwrite ALL information in the disk, meaning all of your personal files will be gone. What you CAN do if you have access to another desktop PC is to shut down you computer, remove the hard disk, and install it as a second drive on the other desktop. It won't boot to the disk, so it can't crash. But you will be able to see the file structure on that disk and can recover personal files to a USB stick or other external media before replacing the disk in your system and using the recovery method(s) described above.

Method 1:

I would suggest you to check of you can open the system recovery options without using the installation disc- a. Remove all floppy disks, CDs, and DVDs from your computer, and then restart your computer using the computer's power button. b. Do one of the following: If your computer has a single operating system installed, press and hold the F8 key as your computer restarts. You need to press F8 before the Windows logo appears. If the Windows logo appears, you need to try again by waiting until the Windows logon prompt appears, and then shutting down and restarting your computer. If your computer has more than one operating system, use the arrow keys to highlight the operating system you want to repair, and then press and hold F8. c. On the Advanced Boot Options screen, use the arrow keys to highlight Repair your computer, and then press Enter. If Repair your computer isn't listed as an option, then your computer doesn't include preinstalled recovery options, or your network administrator has turned them off.

c. Select a keyboard layout, and then click next.

d. On the System Recovery Options menu, click a tool to open it. Refer the below link for more information -

For boot from disk first you have to set first boot device option in BIOS.
for that when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key to enter in bios.
Then go to boot menu then set first boot device as your cd/dvd rom.
then save settings then insert recovery diks in rom then check.
Then it boot from disk if your disk and cd.dvd rom works fine.
Let me know if you need more assistance.
Thanks.

hp should have an option on your boot menu (viewed by pressing f8) to boot to system partition. Try that and see what kind of options are there.

HP Media Center m1080n PC... Problem


If you have the original restore disk, you could try and fix it. But if you have an actual copy, you can go to install it but when it propts you click repair. It should go into a dos mode, and then type fixboot, (this is for if the computer comes to the boot logo and then crashes and shows boot logo again, or if it comes to the blue screen of death) and hit enter. also if prompted, you could try last known good configuration.
These are some methods of fixing your computer without erasing all data!
Cheers and Please Rate!!
