Question about HP Pavilion 7840 PC Desktop
I do all my work from my hp pavilion 7840 desktop. I also have a laptop. I haven't used the desktop in 2 months since I recently moved. I needed to grab my files from the pc to save them to my laptop to do some work. However, when I turned my pc on, it says "operating system not found"!! Of course, I'm in a panic! I'm in the Phoenix BIOS Utility Screen, but I have no idea what to look for or what to do. Can someone please guide me as far as appropriate settings to look for etc. Please, my life is in there (including many many pics of my family that I really dont want to lose because I cant replace them!) PLEASE PLEASE HELP! Thank you!
As per my knowledge the Windows system you are using is corrupted, so you have to reinstall it & for so it is leading you to the BIOS screen directly. So all you need to format / reinstall the OS.
Manage a Windows setup CD (if you having it, excellent)
About your images you can use this software to recover those files.. I am not gurantee you that it will recover all photos but it can recover almost all photos

This could be as simple as a missing file from the operating system, or as severe as a total hard drive failure.
I'd start by trying to boot from the recovery CD and chose the option to fix the operating system - rather than an all out recovery which will delete all your files on the PC.
The other option is to "slave" the hard drive inside another desktop machine - this way you should be able to access your files through My Computer and copy them to a flash drive or CD. Then you can restore the hard drive using the CD as mentioned earlier.
