Recovery the master boot record


Restart your computer with the Operating system Setup disk in the CDROM drive. If you are prompted to press a key to start the computer from CDROM, do so quickly. Otherwise it may try to boot from the hard drive. After a few minutes, you'll see a prompt to press the R key to start the Recovery Console. When Recovery Console starts, it will prompt you to enter a number corresponding to the Windows XP installation that you need to repair. In most cases, you'll enter "1" (which will be the only choice). If you press ENTER without typing a number, Recovery Console will quit and restart your computer. Enter your Administrator password. If you don't enter the correct password, you cannot continue. At the Recovery Console command prompt, type fixmbr and then verify that you want to proceed. Your damaged MBR will be replaced with a shiny new one, and you should then be able to boot your system normally. In some cases, you may need to repair the boot sector in addition to the MBR. If your system still doesn't boot properly, repeat the steps above, but issue the fixboot command instead. Hope this helps

Safeboot corrupted (error 92h)


Check the BIOS setting to see if the hard disk is detected. If not either the hard disk controller or the hard disk is faulty.

First thing I would try is to remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and then plug this adapter into a working computer's USB port. If this computer sees this hard drive as an external hard drive and you can open the various folders and files, then I would backup your data.
If the hard drive is not detected then the hard drive is dead and data cannot be retrieved with this method.

Retrieving data from damaged hard disk is possible. There are companies that can remove the disk platters from the damaged hard drive and with special equipment may be able to recover your data, but it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.

My hard drive burnt out. The hard drive test says failed and the operating system won't boot. I placed a leftover hard drive from my Playstation 3 into the laptop and now it says no operating system found....


Try the recovery console from a windows xp recovery/install disk:
To run the Recovery Console from the Windows XP startup disks or the Windows XP CD-ROM, follow these steps:
1.Insert the Windows XP startup disk into the floppy disk drive, or insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.
Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted.
2.When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
3.Select the operating system you want to repair (you may have only one option).
4.When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
5.At the command prompt, type the appropriate commands to diagnose and repair your Windows XP installation. From here I would try "chkdsk /r" and "fixboot"
For a list of commands that are available in Recovery Console, type recovery console commands or help at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.
For information about a specific command, type help commandname at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.
6.To exit the Recovery Console and restart the computer, type exit at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.
Once you've done this restart the computer and see if it boots up.

Gateway 7330GZ Not Booting Properly


Probably a virus, or your windows folder got corrupted. Try to use Knoppix (A linux distrobution that boots from a CD) to get all your data onto a pen drive or external hard drive. Download the Knoppix ISO at Knoppix.com and burn it onto a CD or DVD using MagicISO (magiciso.com). Insert the CD, and you should see the boot screen. Open the file manager, and copy all the files you want to keep from your hard drive to a pen drive or external hard drive. Then, reinstall Windows using a recovery CD (one might have come with your computer). Copy the files back, and PRESTO!

You need to Go for Pc Recovery from HP it self or you can get the recovery cds for it.
Try :-
Opening Recovery Console
The following steps open a Recovery Console:
1. Shut Down Your Computer and as soon as you turn your computer On Keep pressing F10 key on the Key board,
You will get an welcome to recovery manager screen after that it will ask you if you want ot run recovery.
after that you need to follow the screen Instructions.

Or either try.
Using the Checkdisk Utility
Use the following steps start the recovery console and use chkdsk to resolve startup issues:
1.Open a recovery console. For more information about how to open a recovery console, refer to the section above: Opening Recovery Console .
2. At the C:\Windows> prompt in the recovery console enter chkdsk /r .
NOTE:If chkdsk /r fails to start from the selected prompt, type chkdsk c: /r (note the space before and after the drives c:). If you are using a recovery console or Tools CD, type chkdsk d: /r , or chkdsk h: /r .
Chkdsk starts.
The time required depends on the size of the hard drive (it checks unused portions of the hard drive) and the amount of software installed. When chkdsk /r completes the screen displays the size of the volume checked and the allocation units. If errors are detected the result are displayed as CHKDSK found and fixed one or more errors on the volume . This is normal.
3.Type EXIT and press Enter on the keyboard.
The PC restarts.
4.If you used the Recovery Console from a CD, while the PC is restarting, press the Eject button on the CD drive and wait a few seconds for the drive tray to open. Remove Recovery Console from the optical drive.

Sounds like a failing hard drive or corrupt file system.

 

Or possibly you have a non bootable disk in the floppy drive, assuming it has one as most laptops dont.

 

Is this Windows XP? If so, try booting from the XP cd. At the menu, choose R for recovery console.

 

In the recovery console, type in CHKDSK /R and let it run, it may take well over and hour to run, if it runs at all. If the recovery console is unable to load, or chkdsk wont run, you may have a failing hard drive.
