Recovery disk for presario cq58-150SL windows 7 home premium


You may not need recovery discs to recover the software on your computer. HP provides a recovery solution on a separate area of the hard drive. If the hard drive is still functional, you can still perform an HP system recovery from the hard drive as long as the recovery information has not been destroyed or corrupted.
To do a software recovery from the hard drive, turn on the computer and repeatedly press the F11 key until "Windows is loading files..." displays on the screen. If your computer originally came with Windows XP or earlier, press F10 to enter recovery instead of F11.

If you have external USB and/or CD disconnect them and try again. Otherwise it could be a fault hard rive - try to boot from an emergency CD (hopefully you created one when you installed Windows).

Need a recovery disc for acer aspire 5738g


Acers have recovery disks built in.

To access the feature. Shut down the computer.

Start it, As soon as you press power to start it.

Hold down the ALT key, and quickly tap F10

This will load the factory restore mode, which will do a complete recovery on your acer.

I have a Acer Aspire 5745 (CPU: Intel i5 processor 2.5GHz RAM: 2GB OS: Win 7 Home Basic) which is only 2 months old. Yesterday I started a installation setup of a game, when suddenly the system restarted....


Hi, I do apologize for the inconvenience you have been facing.The reason why the laptop does not reboot to Windows even after reinstalling Windows is because the issue is with the hard drive not being recognized the reason for which you get a blinking line on the screen after the Acer logo .In this case I would suggest that if the laptop is under warranty please contact the Acer Technical support and have an order placed for repair.
Thank you for your time and best wishes for your effort.

Need to restore to factory Settings don't have discs


If your system came with a recovery cd and you have lost it, the only things you can do is either , do a system restore back to the last restore point shown. Or purchase a new CD disk.

If yous system did not come with a recovery disk, then it is possible there is a recovery image of windows residing on the D:\ drive partition of your hard drive. If this is the case, when you boot up the computer and it's on the black screen, you should be given an option something like "Press F10 for Setup" . If you press F10 you will have options on how to recover the PC to factory defaults.
