    I also need an actual recovery disk for a T2896 with the operating system on it. Not just the drivers. I can't locate any where online to purchase one and emachines/Gateway doesn't have them anymore.

I don't know where you can download a recovery disc, BUT I do know where you can download most of the drivers you'll need to restore the PC to it's original condition. Just visit eMachines Support for the T2896 at this link. Then, click Download and you'll see all of the drivers. Click each driver you need and then burn a CD of those drivers, along with any documentation. Put that disc away -- and it can serve as your recovery CD.

I hope this helps. If it does, please rate the solution offered. My goal is always FixYa or Helpful, never TFT or IA. Regards,

You can download and burn the Hiren Boot CD to fix this. However in most cases you'll get another error. Re-installing the operating system is your best option. If the recovery console doesn't work (F10) then you may also need to replace the hard drive. If you don't have the recovery discs. You can order them from HP.

My e-machines had windows 7 and became unusable. I had to use my pc and resorted to installing linux on it. I got the recovery discs from e-machines and after I put in the 1st recovery disc, it said...


Hi,
You are getting this error because linux is installed on it.
Windows doesn't go well with linux.
Format your harddrive using any 3rd party formatter tool.
I mean, it should be like a blank hardrive without any files in it.
Then try to use the recovery disc.

Recovery help needed for packard bell laptop


So you are using two different XP discs with two different activation codes? That may cause problems. Anyway you are probably already formated with NTFS. So it sounds like you are trying to re-install XP? Go in set-up and choose the CD/DVD ROM drive as the first boot device then start up with the XP disc in the drive. Use the disc for the original XP that was on the computer. This may get you to a point where you can re-install.

I dont like Vista so my GEEK nephew took off Vista and put XP on my Pavilion Notebook....not a good idea..Now I find I should have made recovery discs and I did not. Can Vista be downloaded or do I need...


Shea,

If you want Vista the only way you can "Download" it legally is to buy it from Microsoft direct. and download it through their download center.

But if your computer came with windows Vista on it you should be able to get the restore disc from your manufacturer for SIGNIFICANTLY less. Usually just the cost of the disc and shipping.

If you don't like Vista, why do you want to put it back on? Is Win XP causing problems?
If so if you describe them and give up what Model pavillion you have we might be able to solve those for you instead.

Hope this helps you
Dave

Dont like vista so I let my nephew take vista off of my Pavilion notebook...not good idea..want to put vista back on but it seems I was suppose to create recovery discs. Can recovery discs be downloaded...


check to see if there is a recovery partition first, to do this press F8 on boot up, if you have no boot partition then you have to go out and buy a OEM copy of vista

Emachine failure. no recovery disc.


just go to www.newegg.com and purchase an OEM copy of Windows XP for 99 bucks. thats your best bet. Or you may have a recovery partition on that desktop...if you press f11 when you turn it on it may let you recover from that. good luck
