Remove it from device manager by right clicking it and selecting uninstall, reboot and let windows auto detect it again, reload your drivers, visit the manufacturers website for the correct drivers.

Factory restore

The following information comes from the Panasonic Website:

Recovery DVDs are available by mail for select Toughbook® products. Windows® XP back up service is only available to customers who purchased Panasonic computers with XP downgrade rights. Windows XP Backup Image and Windows 7 Recovery DVDs restore a PC to its original factory image. The standard Panasonic factory image includes the Windows operating system and all drivers/applications originally installed by Panasonic.

Most 2011 models of Panasonic Toughbook computers now have a Recovery partition on the hard drive instead of a Recovery DVD included in the laptop box. The only exceptions are the Toughbook F9, H2 and U1 Ultra which will continue to ship with a Windows 7 Recovery DVD. Besides restoring the computer to its original factory image, the Recovery Partition can also be used to load 64-bit Windows 7 Professional (32-bit ships by default from Panasonic).

You can order the Recovery Disks here:

Hp omni will not boot past starting windows

windows is corrupted, (guess at huge virus attacks.)
needs fresh load from HP recover CD, lost those,?
if the fresh load fails then the HDD is bad.
i can see you tried safe mode
but fails.
an all in one, quasi desktop, not a true desktop at all.
its like large notebook with legs.
and as such more hard to repair, (parts non standard)
looks like its a 2012 product from HP,
so is supported until 2022.

i guess the F11 key recovery failed.
so page 13 in the book on this PC tells you
how to make recovery media
ah but only works on a running system(must be done day one new pc, so you have this recovery DVD-r or USB stick.

Recovery media can be created on either blank DVD
discs or a USB flash drive (one or the other, but
not both). Create recovery media from the recovery image stored on your hard disk drive.
This image
contains the operating system and software program files that were originally installed on your computer at the factory. You can
create only one set of recovery media for your computer, and the
media can be used only with this computer. Store the recovery media in a safe place.
end qoute.
(wow only one set allowed)
if the hdd is corrupted, even the restore partition can be a wreck.
only real media is good, DVD or USB.

you can also , do it the hard way
call hp and beg for media
or use free micro soft down load ISO, for w7/8 or 10
and install the MS software
then use the COA sticker on back of PC for the lic. activaiton.
W7 in this case.
then down load all hp drivers for w7 and intall them.
there did all 3 ways for you.

My computer wont go into windows, all the farther it goes is the resuming windows screen, how do i reboot from the 2 disks that i have?

Load your first recovery disk, when the system is going through BIOS, press F9 on your keyboard, this should bring up the boot menu. Select Boot from CD Rom and it should start going through the recovery.

Please remember to rate my solution to show yourappreciation.

Hp pavilion dv5-2129wm won't boot loaded image disc but couldn't find 5th disc I do have 5 back up discs but not given the option in recovery says to reboot choose operating system and load drivers to...

If recovery disks do not work you are SOL Hp will not help you if your unit is past warranty - they will refer you to forum or suggest you get another computer - an HP of course!

Basically you will have to obtain the OS disks for the system of your choice that is compatible with your unit., load it and get the drivers from HP site.

My computer can not detect the speaker after I format my computer.I check the connection and everything, just I can not recover the driver. what is wrong ?

Unless you have used a recovery disc set or recovery partition on your hard drive to restore the original factory software image, you'll need to download and install the sound drivers for your computer. Most computers have integrated sound, and Windows almost always needs those drivers installed separately. You should be able to download the drivers from the computer manufacturer's website if you have a name-brand machine, or from the motherboard manufacturer's site. Once you install the proper drivers your sound should be working again.

Unable to restore back to factory image read error

Are you using Factory CD/DVD or Made from utlity Disks or from hard drive utility option.
This seems to be a CD read error.
I found the same error code need help for posted for HP, Compaq, Gateway, ETC.
ALL new setups with the MAKE RECOVERY DISK UTILITY and NO factory disks.
Factory recovery disks are available for $60 and up from manufacturers.
Other option is Install Retail OS - get drivers from manufacturer - Install software you want to use.
Other option is expensive but reliable.
Factory option would be for your system only.
