Using Recovery Partition
The Recovery Partition quickly restores your Notebook PC's software to its original working state. Before using the Recovery Partition, copy your data files (such as Outlook PST files) to USB storage devices or to a network drive and make note of any customized configuration settings (such as network settings).

About the Recovery Partition
The Recovery Partition is a reserved space on your hard disk drive used to restore the operating system, drivers, and utilities installed on your Notebook PC at the factory.

I have accidentally formatted my partition drive f

Deleting or formatting won't make the data in computer hard drive erased permanently.

Those deleted data is still stored on the computer hard drive , it's just invisible or inaccessible. Only the FAT or NFTS table is erased (the information about where those data were saved), but the real data are still intact there in sectors of the hard drive.

So as long as those data are not overwritten by new data, it's highly possible to recover them. And the MOST Effective way is to rely on some format recovery programs.

Try asoftech data recovery program, which can recover data after deeply scanning your computer hard drive to look for lost data you accidentally deleted or formatted. download the software from link below

Sound like you wrote over "d" drive partition when you restored the system. Get the program partition magic and you can recover the lost partition. Hope this helps you.tom

My Lenovo lap 892229U 3000 c200 crashed and I do not have the installation cd. I loaded on the XP operating system but I am have problems loading on the drivers like the sound, wireless etc.

you probably have a secure partition. it will contain your recovery disks if you have not changed your partitions or changed disks. you may either have to create the disks from this partition or run a recovery program from this partition (drive)(folder).

My netbook crashed while recovery was in procress now I can not boot up


Try Recovery again. If it continually crashes, that is an indication that your hard drive is bad or going bad and needs to be replaced.

But, run your Diagnostics (usually F12 upon boot) and note if any hardware is problematic, especially your hard drive.

Hope this helps.

Gateway laptop reset

Gateway Direct systems went "media-less" back in September 2004. In the event of a system crash users could either 1) restore their systems from the Recovery Partition OR 2) from the backup media that they were prompted to create on first power-up -- which would provide them with up to 5 blank CD-R discs depending on their system's configuration.

On the factory load of the hard drive, the recovery partition will not contain operating system files. It only contains application and driver files.
The first time the recovery partition is used, it prompts the user to insert their System Recovery CD/DVD to copy files from the CD to the recovery partition.
The Drivers and Applications CD is not bootable and does not contain Operating System files.
The System Recovery CD/DVD is bootable but does not contain any application or driver files.
If the end-user erases the hard drive and restores the computer using the System Recovery CD/DVD and an Applications and Drivers CD, the recovery partition is not recreated.

This means that you will need the operating system restore disc FIRST then the recovery partition will work for you

I cannot find a driver for wireless (network controller)

You may need to do a clean install. It is possible the crash was caused by the wireless faulting out. If you have the time, create a recovery disk and locate your restore partition. This is normally D: drive. Do a format and restore the system to original factory settings using the restore disk you create and the restore partition. If you can't create these your only other option is to purchase a full version of Windows and do a clean install using that. Make sure you choose to format the hard Drive C: as it is possible that your drivers are stored on any other drives on your computer.

If you still have the recovery partition on your hard drive, boot whilst holding the f11 key, this will start NEC recovery and will allow you to reinstall the system, drivers included. If not, you'll have to visit:
to download the drivers you need. Good luck!

Constant Restarting

If the restore partition was corrupted during the computers operation then it will not allow you to configure the Windows XP setup correctly. The blue screen is what we call the blue screen of death. Most of the time you have to start completely over from step one until you get past it. It can be anything from a memory problem to a bad sector in the hard-drive to a bad install file for one of the drivers. They hide the service partition from the average user on the computer so they will not mess with it. It is some times used to help restore the OS if it gets a glitch in it, from a backup file located else where on the hard-drive. This partition usually contains the drivers needed for the particular computer that it is installed in. If you replace the hard drive then you will need to create this partition from a backup CD, if you received one with the computer. If you didn't you can setup a new drive without the partition by doing a Windows XP new install and then install the individule drivers for the computer so it will operate correctly. The drivers can usually be downloaded from the manufacturers site and then burned to a CD rom for use. I came across a forum that had some information on the recovery partition that may be helpful to you, and there seemed to be a lot of frustration with the recovery utilities of the Vaio. Spinrite is another utility that can be helpful in recovering a crashed hard-drive.
Hope this helps, Good Luck, RAC
