    Exactly the same problem as tyson. It seems to kick in before windows even starts. I tried doing a step by step boot, but the error came up before I has run anything. Doesn't cause any real problems, just a bit mysterious!

This must be a programme you use to back up any files everytime you shut down. But it seems as if the programme cannot find the correct partition to save the file to. See if there is anything on your startup menu (Start>Run> then type msconfig)that is running in the background ready to save when you powerdown.

Laptop C partition low disk space

Make sure your hard disk has enough space. Most often when the error massage comes it will tell you how much free space is required to install the game look keenly and know how much space is required then either move all media files mainly video files especially downloaded in the download folder to an alternative partition and only leave windows and installed program on Local Disk C. Other wise if your hard disk capacity is very small then am afraid that you will have to get a bigger hard disk.

Does a Hp 6720s laptop with XP pro have a built in recovery feature without a disk.

Hello, Most newer laptops now come without a recovery disk because the recovery is usually on the hard disk partition D.If you check yours and it has the partition for recovery, you can still burn this partition into a DVD media because the partition are usually large, incase something happens to your laptop recovery, you still have your recovery on your DVD MEDIA. Go to start>computer and check. Regards

Booting problem

I suspect your machine is an IBM Thinkpad 770.

The Error 0270 means you must replace the lithium coin cell battery. Google "Thinkpad (your model) support" and read the manuals for instructions.

With a new battery installed, boot into Setup by pressing the F! key. Reset the clock and verify that the hard drive is recognised.

Reboot, all might be OK. If not, download and run IBM's free PC-Doctor utility to test the machine. If all is OK, I suspect the hard drive was stripped and an operating system must be installed. Verify this with a DOS boot floppy. Run FDISK to view your partitions.

Good luck.
