Once powered on it goes to black screen and says - INVALID SYSTEM DISC,replace the disc, and then press any key.


Are you sure the BIOS is set to boot from hard disk?
It looks like it is trying to boot from network (PXE) and then from floppy disk.

My gateway laptop won't reboot after system recovery


I would put in a Windows disc and see if that prompts windows to start and/or reinstall. Actually, can you send me the recovery disc via download? I am trying to fix my old laptop and cannot find the discs. lilly.murphy@yahoo.com Thanks much!

My Studio 1535 has crashed. It will not reboot Vista. When I turn it on it will show the Dell Splash Screen and then go to the "Windows Error Recovery" screen which shows these options:...


To start the systemrecovery:
  1. Restart the computer.
  2. When the Computer logo appears on the screen, press the Alt and F10 keys repeatedly.
  3. If you are prompted with a Microsoft Windows boot screen, press the Enter key.
  4. After the system recovery application has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the Operating System.
If the ability to reinstall from the previous method is not available orfails, recovery of the Operating System will need to be from Recovery Media. Ifyou do not have a set of Recovery Media, you may purchase the set onlinefrom the manufacturer. Note: If your computer does not havean internal optical disc drive, an external optical disc drive will be requiredin order to recover the Operating System using Recovery Media.
  1. Restart the computer.
  2. When the computer logo appears on the screen, press the F12 key repeatedly to enter the computer's Boot Menu.
  3. Press the CD-ROM drive eject button and insert the disc labeled System CD.
  4. Close the CD-ROM tray.
  5. Refer to on screen instructions to select either CDROM or USB CDROM.

  7. When prompted for the Recovery CD, remove the System CD and insert the Recovery CD.
Note: Ifthere are multiple Recovery CDs, please insert the first of the Recovery CDs.
  1. After the system recovery application has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the Operating System.

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.

When starting computer it shows invalid system disc


I presume that recovery disc is for that computer... in that case check that the disc is spotlessly clean and also if i remember right that is a two disc set so make sure you are putting disc one in first

Computer shows invalid system disc,wont let me do anything else


This might be simple.
Assuming your son didn't make any internal changes to your computer. The problem may be that he changed your boot sequence to boot to floppy or CD instead of the Hard Drive.
Do the following:

As your computer is starting you will briefly have the option to hit F8 (I think F8 Might be another) for "start up menu or options".
This will take you to a screen of text where following the on screen text areas and moving the curser with the keyboard arrows and enter or escape check your boot sequence (the order of where your computer is to look for start up information)

It should read as follows:
#1 HDD1 (this text may vary)
#2 CDROM drive
#3 FLOPPY (if you have one) or other removable drive

If your son changed this and forgot to it back your computer may be trying to get start up information from a CD or Floppy instead of your hard drive.

Once you've changed this (assuming you needed to change it) following the instructions use the key to "save changes and exit"
Your computer should now boot up correctly.

Let me know if this helps

My son tried to clean my computer with a disc from his older compaq presario, now all my screen show is "invalid system disc,replace disc and press enter". I don't have the disc and don't know what it...


Since there is no CD in the drive the computer is attempting to boot of the hard drive and not finding the files it requires (unless you have it set to boot off a USB device before the hard drive).
You cannot simply use the recovery disk from one system on another because these disks install drivers specific to the hardware of the computer for which it is intended.
You need to find the CDs that came with this system or contact HP and order them. Please note that running a recovery CD will wipe all your personal data from the system (this may very well have happened already), since this drive will not boot, connect it to another system as a slave or use a USB enclosure to see if there is anything you can salvage.
