A free legal Windows image can be downloaded. Check the MS Product Key sticker for what version your system came with. You may have to use your key. IT MUST BE THE SAME VERSION.

Download correct version and burn onto DVD to use. In your case, you need a Virtual CD-ROM player like Magic ISO to make USB installer.


Not quick or even fast, but true.

I have a compact armada when booting up do i hit f10 to system restore it a m700


Hi - To do a system restore you need the QuickRestore disc package that was provided with the machine. The restore would only be useful if you still had the factory installed operating system on your laptop.

I did a look around the HP/Compaq support site and didn't see any place to order the discs but I only spent a few minutes there so you might want to contact them. The support page for your PC is located HERE. It's an older machine and there's a strong possibility you can no longer get the discs.

Your best option would be to upgrade your machine to Windows XP (or reinstall it if that's what you had). I only suggest that version of Windows if you have 512 MB of RAM (the system probably came with 256 MB of RAM.

Good Luck and Thanks for visiting Fix Ya.

I had Dell Windows XP along time ago. I now have Windows Vista Business and I think it is Service pack 1. I pressed F12 and did diagnosis then it scanned right off the bat it says... "Error Code...


Hi. Error 0146 is pertaining to a failing hard drive. You can still try to reinstall Windows Vista by requesting for a CD from Dell by contacting them.

If they fail to send you a CD or if the error still comes up after reinstalling Vista, then you need to replace your hard drive.

Compaq presario system recovery


Hi,

When the initial blue HP screen appears, press the F10 key repeatedly until a recovery menu appears. The progress indicator that first appears does not indicate that a recovery is taking place. The progress indicator represents the time before the recovery process is started.

When the Recovery screen appears, click Next, and then click Yes to perform a normal, non-destructive recovery.

To perform a destructive recovery, click Advanced, and then click Yes.



CAUTION: A destructive recovery will format the hard drive. This will delete all the information on the hard drive and reinstall Windows XP and the original software that came with the computer.

After the System Recovery is complete, the computer restarts and continues into Windows setup. Complete the setup screens and wait until the computer finishes the setup.


NOTE: It may take a long time to complete Windows setup. This time varies and may take over an hour, depending on the amount of files that were stored in the user account folders (Like My Documents and the Desktop.

Note:Dont foregt to backup your important files/documents.
Hope this helps !
Thanks..

Toshiba Laptop A55-S306 shuts down with error messages


It sounds to me like a virus. Boot up from a recover cd or windows cd and reinstall freashly.

If you don't have a recovery cd, contact Toshiba for one. They go around for $40 to $50. If you can't get one, buy Windows Vista and boot up from that and reinstall.
