    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,

Ntdlr is missing


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.

I was trying to create the Recovery Management disk but everytime I try to burn the CD it keeps ejecting. I would really like it if you could provide some help. I recently bought this E-Machine computer...


Welcome to Fixya

Please see procedure below on how to create recovery disk. Let me know if smae thing will happen.

  • 1

    Click the "Start" icon on the Windows Vista home screen. Select "eMachines," then click "eMachines Recovery Management." The eMachines Recovery Management program opens.

  • 2

    Click "Create Factory Default Disc." The program will tell you how many discs you will need. Make sure the correct optical drive is selected, then insert a blank disc into that drive. Click "Start" to begin the burning process.

  • 3

    Remove the disc when it is finished burning and label it "Recovery CD 1." Insert the next the next blank disc if one is required. Click "OK" to begin burning the next disc. Repeat this step until all of the discs have been created and labeled. Close the eMachines Recovery Management program, insert the system CD that came with the laptop and restart the laptop.

  • 4

    Press "F12" repeatedly when the eMachines logo is displayed on the screen to be redirected to the Boot menu. Select the optical drive, then press "Enter."

  • 5

    Insert Recovery CD 1 when you are prompted to insert the recovery disc. The eMachines Recovery Management program will open.

  • 6

    Click the "Restore" tab in the list on the left side of the eMachines Recovery Management program window, then select "Completely Restore System to Factory Defaults." The computer automatically restarts and the recovery process begins. Insert any additional recovery discs as requested. The computer will reboot automatically when the laptop has been recovered to its original factory default settings, and you will be taken to the Windows Setup screen.

    Is there a free full recovery download on the web for the Inspiron 2200 that can be burned to a disk?


    Likely not. It is a great idea, and perhaps someday someone will start a website to allow users to download recovery disc sets for out of warranty machines, but as of yet, there is no such site. If you contact Dell, you will likely have to purchase recovery discs. the GOOD news is, you can purchase them, make a backup and store the originals in a safe place. You can also take your PC to a shop, where they will likely load a generic copy of windows (using your key, so please ensure the windows key is legible and legitimate), for about 80-100 dollars. But, should you ever need to redo your machine again, it will cost you 80-100 again. SO, in my opinion, your BEST and cheapest option is bite the bullet, Call Dell, and order those recovery discs for your machine, then copy them to your hearts desire, and leave the originals in a cool, dry, safe place, such as an attic or top of a shelf in a closet someplace.

    Acer aspire 5570 AWXMi not booting after downloading something and gives blue screen and restarts some error called TRAP-000006 maybe some more zeros no recovery disc in hand help!!!!


    Hi,
    As the computer restarts hit F8 and boot into safe mode, if you can get the machine into safe mode then perform a system restore as i expect an update for a driver is conflicting.
    Take the machine back to a date before this happened. If the restore was successful and you may think that Microsoft Update was responsible for the system crash it would be a good idea to disable your automatic updates altogether.
    Please post back if you need anymore assistance.


    Good luck.

    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.

    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
