If you insert the restore disc and reboot the machine and when the laptop is booting up hold down f12 and you should get the boot menu select the CD/DVD drive and it should be straight forward from there.

Restore hp pavilion dv7 1464nr to factory settings windows


Step 1:
Which operating system ?
Restore Hp laptop factory settings without a Restore Disc Turn on the HP laptop. When the blue HP screen appears, press the "F10" key repeatedly until the "Recovery Menu" appears. A progress indicator informs you of the time before the recovery process is to take place. Click "Next" in the Recovery Menu. Decide whether you want to perform a nondestructive or destructive recovery. A "nondestructive recovery" does not format the laptop's hard drive or erase any personal files on your laptop. However, a "destructive recovery" formats your laptop's hard drive and erases any personal files you have on your laptop. Click "Yes" to execute a "Normal, nondestructive recovery." The restore process begins and your laptop restarts. Alternatively, to execute a destructive recovery, click "Advanced." Click "Yes" to start the "Destructive recovery." The restore process begins and your laptop restarts.

Restoring with CDs Back up all crucial user files if you are able to do so. If your computer will not burn CDs, use flash drives of 4GB or higher to store your data. Alternatively, you can use your network to transfer files. You can then back up your data to CDs at your leisure. Detach peripheral devices such as removable media drives, USB drives and your printer before recovering. Also remove any additional hard drives by disconnecting the cable from the back of the computer. Leave your monitor, mouse and keyboard attached to the computer. Shut down your computer. Place the first recovery CD in the CD drive. If your recovery files are written on a partition, you may be able to select system recovery from the splash screen and your computer starts. Select the recovery option you would like to use. To perform a destructive recovery, click the "Advanced" menu option. Select "Destructive Recovery" and click "Next." To perform a non-destructive, or system, recovery, click "Next" from the opening screen. Watch the computer while it is recovering to the factory settings. Watch for any errors, as the computer will wait indefinitely for a response from you, slowing down recovery time. Also, you may need to insert additional recovery CDs as the recovery program requests them. b> Restoring With Recovery Manager Click the Windows "Start" menu, type "Recovery" in the Search field and press "Enter." Click "Advanced Options," choose "System Recovery" and select "Next." If you are prompted to use Microsoft's recovery program, select "No." Choose the option to back up your files, if you haven't done it already. Once that is complete, choose "Next" to begin reformatting the drive and returning the system to factory settings.

I have ask you already how to install the dual boot os(Windows xp and Windows 7 ), but i don't complete yet .Can you explain to me again step_by_step in great detail ? because when i install windows xp...


Hello, this is how I dual boot my laptop with windows xp and windows 7

1. Backup all you important files, use an external hard-disk if possible
2. Make sure you have two drives or partitions: usually drive C and D
3. Insert your xp cd, do a quick format of drive C and install
4. Boot into windows xp and format format drive D if necessary
5. Insert your windows 7 DVD and follow the prompts. When it asks you to upgrade or new install, choose new installation
6. When you are asked to choose a location choose drive D
7. Complete your windows 7 installation
8. Thats it, you can now install drivers and programs

When installation is complete you will see both os options: windows 7 and previous version of windows (i.e xp)

I have done this numerous times without the need for any other step or software. The only rule is to is to install xp first, then windows 7.

All the best

My registry is corrupted, I can't get the pc to start up. Can this be corrected without reformating the drive? If not, can photos be saved off the drive before hand?


You can correct this with out reformating the drive, by performing a system repair using your operating installation CD.
How ever to completely solve the problem you will have to reformat the drive at one point.

Perform a system repair, then back up your images and other files that you need onto external drives, DVDs or CDs or on a separate partition; that is if your hard disk is partitioned.

No audio


If you are having Winodws XP installed in your Notebook, try the steps listed below :

Click on Start Menu and then on Run. Type Services.msc in the search field.

The services window opens up. Locate the service Winodws Audio from the list.

Double click this service and select the Startup Type as Automatic and go to the Recovery tab.

Select Restart the Service for First failure, Second failure and Subsequent failures.

Click on OK to save the settings changed and close the window.

If the service is already running or the Automatic is already selected, we may have to reinstall the Drivers by downloading them from HP..

First, as your Notebook is installed with HD Audio, you need to download and install the Microsoft UAA Drivers which are available from the link below :

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp33501-34000/sp33867.exe

Save the file to the Notebook, double click on the file once it is completed to install.

Now, download the Audio Drivers for the Notebook from the link below :

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp34001-34500/sp34200.exe

Save the file to the Notebook, double click on the file once it is completed to install.

If you are having Vista in your Notebook, you can try reinstalling the Audio Drivers in the Notebook which are available for download from the link below :

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp35501-36000/sp35684.exe

Download and save the file in the Notebook and double click once it is saved.

Hope this works....

Boot application from cdrom?


Recovery cds work only on the laptop at its original state, meaning not yet formatted, because the recovery disk is linked to the system to restore minor errors on the OS... Those cds have become useless since "he formatted the notebook", inside is not already the original files... Buy a windows XP installer and install it bu yourself... it is very easy....

Good luck....

Problem with my COMPAQ Presario 900Z Notebook


I already answered this question. Your operating system cd is the cd you need to follow my instructions.

If you MUST get the information out NOW, you can bring the laptop to any computer repair center or buy a laptop drive adapter at your local Office Depot or Staples, and then plug it into your pc via USB.

Recovery partition - repair


You have obviously deleted the partition that the laptop could recover from but usually if you are supplied a cd to recover windows, there is normally a drivers folder within the cd but not the aplications, such as anti virus although these are only for a trial period. for things like microsoft works if supplied, are normally on a seperate cd. Without knowledge of your partition software, you should be able to partition the HDD and then copy the files from one drive to another, but the restore may not work as the system files may not weave together when you come to restore. I would imagine it's only the drivers that's youre main concern, which you can install from your other laptop.
