Presario will not stay on and error message appears

I have a Presario 2100 and a display message that the OS could not be found. I tried to use the recovery and then it shut down. I looked up the error pex-e61 and it said the Harddrive was bad. I replaced it and tried to load the OS. Same message showed up. Then it started shutting down automaticallly after a few seconds. the Fan is working but it is getting very hot. I blew out some dust and it is still having trouble staying on. I even set the boot to the CD rom and put the OS disk in.
What next?

Recovery partition not found - but it is there


Sorry to hear of your difficulty. Usually in your kind of situation data can easily be recovered using any Windows data recovery software. But my personal suggestion to you is to first try to run a demo version first and if you see directory list of your lost data then only proceed with the purchase.

Sometimes when OS fail to install then file System of your hard drive can go corrupt which can result to partition not found error.

Disk boot failure on compaq presario S7300CL

Hi friend,

The message, "Disk boot failure" often means that the OS is corrupt and needs to be re installed. Try restarting the computer twice or thrice and check whether you can log in to the system. If the same error displays again then you have to re install the OS. But re installing the OS leads to data loss from the hard disk. So at such kind of situations you need a data recovery software to recover your data back. Yodot Hard Drive Recovery is a wonderful data recovery software which performs recovery after disk boot failure.

Make sure the disc is readable. Try to copy the entire disk on another laptop/pc. If the copy runs fine, then it must me something else -- perhaps the HDD.

Need a reboot disk for compaq presario 1278 series cm2070 model 1456VQLIN does not have an OS

Most Compaq's come with what is known as "reimaging" or the OS already installed on a partitioned part of your harddrive (which is locked) unless you go in and have your computer do a System Recovery to factory settings...
Know that if this is your only option, then you will loose everything you have on your computer up until you got the error message...

Ok, first things first..
What were you doing before you got this error?
Are you able to boot to your start up screen and get to System Restore? If not and all else is lost, then follow the following instructions

1. Restart the computer "Press key, it's up above your 0 for recovery" message is displayed
on the screen. Then select Recovery Manager. Then your Recovery Manager will come up

2. Choose Advanced Options.
3. Choose System recovery, and then click Next. It will instruct you to reset your computer to Factory Settings...all you need to do is follow the Recovery Manager Wizard options and click next and next and so on... let me know if this works....
