D drive died.

Have lost contact with my D drive. It doesn't even show up when I go into My Computer. I also had to do a system recovery on my HP 4535. This computer is on it's last leg. Any way to recover my D drive? Thanks.

Have a look in disk managment, Right click my computer>manage and look in the disk mangement section and see if it is there, if showing it may need to be activated by right clicking on it. If not press F2 or Del on start up and enter the bios and see if the bios is seeing your drive, you may have to press F12 or something similair to auto identify hard drives, then press F10 to save and exit for a re start

Hdd driver for WD 3200BVT-80JJ5TO DATE. 6 OKT 2011. And how it happen was when I was reinstalling windows I deleted the driver for hdd and now I am really in trouble..... Please answer A.S.A.P. Thank


Paul,
The driver for the HDD is actually built into the HDD. Windows 7 contains a driver to communicate with the drive. If you have a backed up copy of your operating system (created by you on DVD's or CD's when you purchased the machine) then you have all you need to do a complete erasing of the hard disk and restoring it to the way it was when you purchased it (all your added data and programs will be lost).

Performing a system restore:

HP Recovery Manager software allows you to repair or restore the computer to its original factory state. HP Recovery Manager works from recovery discs, a recovery flash drive, or from a dedicated
recovery partition (select models only) on the hard drive. NOTE: A system restore needs to be performed if the computer hard drive has failed or if all attempts to correct any functional computer issues fail. A system restore should be used as a final attempt to correct computer issues.
Note the following when performing a system restore:

You can restore only the system that you have previously backed up. HP recommends that you use Recovery Manager to create either a set of recovery discs or a recovery flash drive as soon as you set up the computer.

Windows has its own built-in repair features, such as System Restore. If you have not already tried these features, try them before using HP Recovery Manager.

HP Recovery Manager restores only software that was preinstalled at the factory. Software not provided with this computer must be downloaded from the manufacturer's Web site or reinstalled
from the disc provided by the manufacturer.

Restoring using the dedicated recovery partition (select models only)

When using the dedicated recovery partition, there is an option to back up pictures, music and other audio, videos and movies, recorded TV shows, documents, spreadsheets and presentations, e-mails,
Internet favorites and settings during this process.

To restore the computer from the recovery partition, follow these steps:

1. Access HP Recovery Manager in either of the following ways:

Select Start > All Programs > HP > HP Recovery Manager > HP Recovery Manager.

- or -

Turn on or restart the computer, and then press esc while the "Press the ESC key for Startup Menu" message is displayed at the bottom of the screen. Then, press f11 while the "F11 (System Recovery)" message is displayed on the screen.

2. Click System Recovery in the HP Recovery Manager window.

3. Follow the on-screen instructions.

Restoring using the restore media

1. If possible, back up all personal files.

2. Insert the first recovery disc into the optical drive on your computer or an optional external optical drive, and then restart the computer.
- or -
Insert the recovery flash drive into a USB port on your computer, and then restart the computer.
NOTE: If the computer does not automatically restart in the HP Recovery Manager, the computer boot order needs to be changed.

3. Press f9 at system bootup.

4. Select the optical drive or the flash drive.

5. Follow the on-screen instructions.

Hope this helps you out.

Where is the reset button


If you mean how do you return to factory condition, press F11 just before it boots and follow the prompts.

Recovering your computer without recovery discs
Creating recovery discs (or USB storage device solution)
Ordering recovery discs from HP in the United States and Canada
Finding recovery discs from other Web sites
Contacting Support
HP recovery discs can be used to return a computer's software configuration to its original condition. HP provides a recovery solution on the hard drive, but it is still a good idea to keep recovery discs stored in a safe place in the event of a hard drive failure. Use the sections in this document to obtain a recovery solution that works best for you.
note.png
NOTE:HP computers designed for commercial use, such as Workstations or Pro series, use "Operating System" or "HP Restore Plus" DVDs. To order these types of discs, go to the HP Replacement Part Store . Recovering your computer without recovery discs You may not need recovery discs to recover the software on your computer. HP provides a recovery solution on a separate area of the hard drive. If the hard drive is still functional, you can still perform an HP system recovery from the hard drive as long as the recovery information has not been destroyed or corrupted.
To do a software recovery from the hard drive, turn on the computer and repeatedly press the F11 key until "Windows is loading files..." displays on the screen. If your computer originally came with Windows XP or earlier, press F10 to enter recovery instead of F11.

    CANT RESTORE MY COMPUTER


    It is asking for the recovery discs that should have been made in the event there was a problem with the recovery sector on drive D or the hard drive failed. The only option is go to www.hp.com contact customer support and the technical department to see if they can sell you the much needed discs.

    I have a Samsung HM640JJ HDD. I bought the drive as an external in an enclosure. The drive has stopped spinning all-together. I even tried to put the HDD in my laptop but will not spin. Samsung will not...


    If the hard drive can't be detected by your computer, you can try this way.
    Put the hard drive in a plastic bag to be compatible for the freezer. Freezing sometimes works to revive a dying hard drive, at least for a short time(Probable just about 20 minutes), but be sure that the bag is sealed tightly so that condensation and ice crystals don't form. Put it in your freezer for 24 hours that will do the trick. While it's still cold, plug it into your computer.And you may be able to view it in 'my computer'.
    If it shows up in 'my computer' as a drive letter(like E: drive) but you can't access it,you can recover data from hard drive with data recovery program.
    Tenorshare data recovery is a professional data recovery program that can recover data after deeply scanning your hard drive to look for lost data due to drives crash, physical damage,system sabotage, virus attack etc.You can get it here: http://www.any-data-recovery.com/product/datarecoveryprofessional.htm After you recover your data,you can format it to check out whether it can be fixed.
    If it fails, you will have to go to a recovery office where supply data recovery service but let's hope not because it will cost you a lot of money and whether they can recover data is not guaranteed.

    If you just got the computer new from HP, you should definitely contact HP support. The computer cannot tell that you have a hard drive in your computer. It could be an error with the hard drive itself or the hard drive connector. Unless you are comfortable opening the bottom of your laptop and checking the hard drive connection, you should contact HP.

    When i am start my hp pavilion this shows Bootmgr is missing alt+cntr+del to restart again it same cycle


    1. Error: BOOTMGR is missing:

    The following error opens when attempting to start the PC:


    ??¢ If you recently installed an additional hard drive, turn off the computer and remove the drive before using the following steps:

    ??¢ Open HP System Recovery:

    ??¢ CAUTION: Do not perform a system recovery! Stop at the first recovery screen.

    - Press the F11 key repeatedly while the computer is starting.

    - If you have a recovery disc, turn on the PC and insert the first recovery disc into the drive. Use the disc to enter the system recovery.

    ??¢ Select Microsoft Startup Repair tool and wait for repair to find and fix errors. When finished, restart the computer; even if the startup repair tool finds errors but cannot fix them.

    ??¢ If the error message persists, open the recovery manager screen as was done in step 1.

    ??¢ At the recovery manager screen, press ALT + D.

    ??¢ Enter the following text at the command prompt: bootrec /rebuildbcd

    ??¢ If bootrec displays "Add installation to boot list?", press y .

    ??¢ After bootrec completes successfully, the computer displays "The operation completed successfully".

    ??¢ To close the command prompt, enter the following text: exit

    ??¢ At the Recovery Manager screen, select Microsoft Startup Repair tool (again) and wait for startup repair to find and fix errors. When finished, restart the computer.

    ??¢ The error should no longer open. If it does, perform a system recovery, making sure to backup important files.

    ??¢ If you removed a hard drive before using these steps, replace the drive. If the error occurs again, make sure the additional hard drive is not set as an active drive. Only the main bootable drive should be set as active.

    I can't do a full system recovery


    It's very possible that your hard drive has failed, and the recovery is stopping because it's unable to read/write to/from the drive. Try a new hard drive.
