Restart the computer, press F9 during startup. In some PC's, it is the F4 key. This activates the hidden partition where your factory settings is saved.

I have a toshibasatellite 4080xcdt laptop and i erased my hard drive. my computer keeps aking for a system disk. what kinda of disk do i need?


Hi,

The disc you have will be the drivers disc, not the windows disc, did you not burn a set of recovery discs when you first got your pc? It should not have deleted the recovery partition from the hard drive while doing a destructive recovery; it should only have wiped the c partition and left the other alone unless you set it to do both. If your recovery partition is gone the only thing you can do is contact Toshiba and ask for a set of Recovery Discs or buy a new copy of windows.

How do I erase the hard drive?


Hi to erase the hard drive you will need a windows disc, on a dell you put the disc in the drive, reboot and press F12 to get a boot menu. boot from the CD/DVD drive and follow the install windows process and when you see the choices of drive space to install on select delete partition. You asked how to erase the drive it is now erased . to reinstall windows continue with the CDs instructions,exit if you just want to dispose of the PC with no personal info on it.
I hope this answers your question

Hi My acer t135 will not boot up properly when


First of all you must recover your files: download and burn a Linux Live-CD, boot from it and move your files to an USB stick.
All older Acer's have a hidden recovery partition. Check in the BIOS (F2 to boot on my Acer): that Acer Disk to Disk Recovery is activated in the Main panel, which D2D Recovery is well on Enabled. To access it press ALT + F10 once the Acer logo is displayed.
If you don't have one borrow from a friend a retail XP disk and do a Repair or Inplace Upgrade install.

I can not make my recovery disc.


Hi there.
I'm sorry to tell you that when you reformatted the drive you deleted the recovery partition and all the recovery information on it, this is why the recovery disk creator cannot be launched and is giving you an error.
Thankfully for you, you created a recovery disk before you wiped the drive so this is your only way of restoring the system so make a back-up copy of the recovery disk you made and keep it safe as the problem cannot be solved because you deleted the recovery partition.

Thanks for using FixYa!!

I have just purchased a HP 2133 mini-note. On first installation, installation failed and now it just loops and wont do anything. How can I facilitate first installtion bearing in mind there are no disks...


The majority of these PCs have a recovery partition on the internal hard drive, here is the instructions for using it.
Recovering information using Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE)
Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) can perform a recovery from either an optional external hard
drive or from recovery discs.
CAUTION: Using Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) will completely erase hard drive contents
and reformat the hard drive. All files you have created and any software installed on the computer will
be permanently removed. When reformatting is complete, the recovery process will restore the operating
system, as well as the drivers, software, and utilities from the backup used for recovery.
To initiate recovery using WinRE, follow these steps:
NOTE: This process will take several minutes.
1. If possible, back up all personal files.
2. Restart the computer, and then press f8 before the Windows operating system loads.
3. Select Repair your computer.
NOTE: The "Repair your computer" option is displayed only if the WinRE partition is intact. If the
option is not displayed, refer to “Recovering information using a Windows Vista operating system
DVD (purchased separately).”
4. Follow the on-screen instructions.
5. Click Next.
6. Select your user name, type your password (if applicable), and then click OK.
7. If you are using recovery discs, insert the last disc of the recovery disc backup set.
NOTE: Inserting the last disc of the backup set confirms the presence of a valid backup. If you
insert any other disc, the backup will not be recognized.
– or –
If you are using an optional external hard drive, connect it to the computer.
8. Click Windows Complete PC Restore.
9. Follow the on-screen instructions.

this is getting long , so ill will post more steps in comment.....

Need to do system recovery on philips freevent x53 problem damaged recovery disk


best not to use a recovery disc as they will erase alot of info, see if you can find a windows disc and use your code off your sticker, when you insert the disc, it will ask if you want to go to recovery mode, say no, go to fresh install and when it says you already have windows ask it to fix the current install, 90% of the time this works
