Reset to factory settings


Look to see if there is a drive partition marked recovery. If there is then you can run the restore program by pressing F12 during boot up.

I losted my operation system, so I installed a windwon 7, now I want get my old opreation system back which is homevista, cani get it bac now?


When you first bought your PC or laptop, you would have been prompted by Windows Vista to create recovery discs, either CD or DVD. If you did this and still have the discs then you can simply put the recover disc into your DVD drive and re-boot the PC from the DVD drive (you may need to change the boot options in the BIOS or via a function key at boot-up).
If you did not create any recovery discs then there is a small possibility that there is a recovery partition on the hard drive. During boot-up, look at the text on the screen that tells you which button to press to get into the BIOS setup utility. There may be an option to start the recovery process, which would access the recovery partition.
If you have not got the recovery discs or a recovery partition then you will need a Windows Vista Home installation disc. The product key should be on a label on your PC or laptop.

Laptop will not load windows vista from bios mode. I have tried recovery discs but still NG, from start up goes past bios & then stops as Vista is starting.


have you tried a system restore and then booting up? I had an issue booting up with vista and tapping Alt+F10 during BIOS fixed, it seems to skip the corrupted part of the boot.

Cannot complete recovery or clean install windows Compaq Presario


You could have a Boot Sector Virus. you would need to run anti-virus software to try and remove this issue. I would recommend Avast or AVG. I have attached a link of website that microsoft recommends. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/49500/EN-US/

Hiya guys, My windows vista would not boot, so I burned Ubuntu flying disc and it loaded properly, and I managed to salvage my files from hard disk.. Now I really would need a recovery disc, since i don't...


Ok. Then you can Factory Restore your PC. Doing this, as you very well know, will remove all data and put your PC in a state which it was in when you bought it.
  1. Restart your PC(or turn it on)
  2. Fit F11(or anything that relates to recovery)
  3. Cancel the AutoDetect if it starts up
  4. When you land on the screen with a window that has quite a few options in it, look for one that reads Factory Restore/Recovery.
  5. Choose the option and wait for your PC to be restored.
This option is automated and really quick.
When you log in to your windows again, check if it is possible to make a recovery disc. If so, please get one done. This will help if your recovery partition goes for a toss. Let me know if you need more detail or help. If your problem is resolved, please rate.

When putting the recovery disc in it will run a few minutes then say free disc error


Normally you want to boot the pc with the recovery disc in. Some recovery programs work best on boot up. If not check the cd to make sure it is not scratched. Also try it in another pc to rule out a bad cd-rom.

I was doing a recovery, when all of sudden the laptop stopped and gave some error message. It will not boot up at all. When power button pressed the laptop starts up fan runs for a while and then nothing...


Hello, You'll need to load the cd recovery disk that came with your computer into your cd drive and restart your computer. All factory recovery cd's are self booting. If you can't boot from the recovery cd you might have a bad disk or a hardware problem.
best of luck, mpawlak908

Not opening my laptop


Here's what you need to do to fix it: Find some way to get Partition Table Doctor (http://www.ptdd.com/download.htm) and put it on either a live boot CD or from a secondary hard drive installation. Once you have that, Scan the partition for errors and select fix boot... Then if you're running Vista get a copy of Vista Recovery Disc (http://blogs.techrepublic.com.com/window... burn yourself a copy of the disc, and run it at the boot of your computer. Once the cd is loaded, click on REPAIR WINDOWS, select COMMAND PROMPT, then use this command: bootrec.exe /fixboot

If that doesn't work use: bootrec.exe /rebuildbcd
and see if your windows boots.

IF you have windows XP, boot up with the Windows XP cd, select Repair (R), go into the command prompt (selecting which windows installation you want to modify) and then type this command: fixboot c:

See if your computer boots now.... The important thing is to try to repair your boot which has been deleted or corrupted, that is why it gives the error: err2err3

Try different recovery tools like Table Doctor http://www.ptdd.com/ in conjunction with your recovery cds (windows xp installation CD and Windows Vista Recovery Disc)

Acer ferrari 3200 pc notebook problem


Hello. Vista needs a repair. You will want to start by putting in your own vista disc or borrowing one from someone. If your laptop isn't booting from the disc, then enter the bios (by hitting f2 or f12 usually) at bootup and select the DVD/CD rom drive to boot first. When the vista disc loads you will want to select recovery tools. Then select "startup repair". That should fix your problem.
