Creepy crawly virus through my grandson download of a "free" games has left windows 7 on in background but basically as wiped 3 years worth of files.


You could in principle note down everything you have installed, perform a system recovery to set the computer back to the factory, from either the Recovery CDs you made when you first got the computer, or from the Recovery partition on your hard disk (which should not be infected) You would then have re-install the other software that you wanted from scratch, either from the original disks, or downloading it from the internet. This includes updates, drivers etc.
One way of reminding yourself of what software you have is to keep a copy of your infected disk to look at (remove your new disk before looking though).
The other thing you could do is try to remove the virus. , either by returning the computer to a professional to do for you, or by yourself, or sign up to one of the many the forums that exist on the internet who will help you e.g., www.majorgeeks.com, www.bleepingcomputer.com, www.computerhope.com, www.techsupportforum or one of the many others. Volunteers will help you, and direct you to use virus removal tools. It may be a long job and may not always be successful - sometimes the only thing to do is start from scratch (erase your hard disk: try NOT to erase the recovery partition though. If you have lost the recovery partition, and you did not make recovery CDs, HP may supply you with a set of recovery disks if you ask them nicely and give them loot.
Let us know how you fare (in a couple of months....)

Laptop HP Pavillion dv6647nr (a dv6000 family) F11 key Problem


Did you format the drive or just repair it"??

Access BIOS and have a look in case that key stroke is disabled in there.

Sounds like the CD has overwritten that part of the HP registry....they have their own.

Hp Pavillion dv6000 has disappeared says I do not have one


I trust your are referring to your hard drive.
Sounds like either your hard drive was damaged or has a virus which wiped out information in the partition.
Hard drives can be damaged if the computer is dropped or is handled roughly.
I suspect that your data is lost in either case.
You can try using your recovery CD to restore your operating system and drivers. This will work if your computer had a virus.
If it doesn't work, then your only option is to buy another hard drivve.

How to get to recovery partition when booting up HP Pavillion MX


The same problem happened to me today on my hp Pavillion a1600n.
Try pressing the F10 key as the computer is powering on. This may allow the computer to access the recovery partition on the hard disk. If you get that far, then you can restore the user partition from the recovery partition. If it is like the a1600n, then you can do a restore of all the content and either leave your own data files intact, or, have it reformat the user partition and then you WILL have to restore all the data files. In either case, you will likely need to reinstall any applications that were added AFTER you got the PC. (Or, in my case, some apps were still kinda working...).

If F10 does not work, you may be able to create a PC Recovery Tools CD from a different hp XP machine, and boot that CD. During part of that boot up process you may get the opportunity to run the Recovery program.

Hope that helps!

Computer virus ruined my tower, hp pavillion s7320n, prod. #:EP140AA. I need a recovery disk? Drivers disk? And a lot of technical help. Marco


If you are not able to create a set of recovery discs, you may be able to order a set of replacement discs from HP. HP maintains a stock of replacement recovery discs for several years after the product has been released. However, because of licensing restrictions, HP is only able to provide these recovery discs for a limited time. If your computer is several years past its warranty period, HP may not be able to supply replacement discs for your computer. If this is the case, you can install a new operating system that meets the minimum system requirements of your computer, or, alternatively, upgrade your computer hardware. To find out if HP has recovery discs that you can order and to order them from HP, use the following steps:
NOTE: The steps in this section apply to United States and Canada . For Europe, Middle East, and Africa please refer to the HP support document Europe, Middle East, and Africa - Statement on the Availability of the Recovery Software on CD . For other countries/regions, contact your local HP support center for information about obtaining recovery CDs.
  1. Go to the Software & Driver Downloads page .
  2. Enter the product number or model name for your computer into the field provided. Figure 1: Product name/number field c00772934.gif
  3. Click the operating system link (the version of Windows that came with your computer). Figure 2: Example of operating system link c00772003.gif
  4. Find the Recovery Disc ordering section and click the link to start the ordering process.
    NOTE: Before trying to order, make sure that you have read the important "Read this..." information listed in this Recover Disc ordering section.
    NOTE: If the link to order a recovery disc set is not available , there may not be any more sets available for purchase. HP cannot create recovery discs that contain a version of Windows that has been obsoleted by Microsoft, such as Windows 95, 98, and Me. Some recovery disc sets may have run out of stock and may not be available to order. Figure 3: Recovery disc ordering links c00772004.gif
  5. Follow the directions from the "Read this.." article and from the ordering pages to complete the ordering process.

    Thanks. Please take a moment to rate this as FixYa.
    Thank you.
