Select models, with Microsoft Windows, have the ability to have the Operating System reinstalled from a hidden partition built into the computer.
Note: During the process, all data stored on your computer will be overwritten. This means all your files, such as email and photos, will be erased. Therefore, we recommend making a backup of all personal data before starting the recovery process.

Old machine, trying to rehab for daughter. Turn on, seet Toshiba screen, then see "Disk read error, cntrl+alt+del to reboot"


You have one of two problems. Either your operating system crashed and you will need to get windows reinstalled on the computer or your hard drive crashed.
If the hard drive crashed you will need to replace the hard drive first and then also reinstall windows.
In both cases it is needed to reinstall windows.
This is probably something a computer technician should take care of.

Hello i need a unlonk code pizza panic.


Missplaced computer passwords are retrievable by attempting to reset the device with the buttons provided. Usually the computer would allow to change passwords that inappropiate either as compromiseable or missing due to several reasons. Click insert the passwords that find appropaite until the computer asumes that user has forgotten passcodes. A reset button should display in place of the prior insert pass area. Changing passcodes however require the alternatetive references to achive success. For example, a computer may have had several backup passwords where lossing one makes way for key inputing the next once. Also, usually the computer password established may have allowed another entity to have the backup passwords. For example, lossing passwords to computers that derive control from server main frame computers may require contacting the systems administrator to restrive the password or reset to another passcodes.

Did a recovery but computers still running slow. I would like to try a reinsall what do I got to do. to preform this. HP Pavilion Media Center a1600n


Running slowly could be a lot of things. It could be you don't have enough physical memory (RAM) in your computer to do what you want. Less than 1 or 2 GB might be seen as slow. If you really want to reinstall Windows, back up all the files you want to save to someplace else, like an external hard drive or thumb drive. You will have to reinstall all your programs (Office, etc) after you reinstall Windows. Take the CD copy of Windows that came with your computer and boot your computer to that. You may have to change the boot order by entering Setup (usually by pressing F2 when it starts). Make sure the CD drive is first in Boot Order. When you boot to the CD follow the instructions for installing Windows in the screens which follow. Delete any existing partitions and install it on a clean partition.
Good luck!
