Restore disks are not worth a w**k......
all you need is xp disk with a cd key...
you can repair (dos prompt) or reinstall or repair(windows app)same as restore.
you can download xp/xppro of net though it does take a while.
if you have ares you could get off me my pc has been uploading xp pro with sp2 integrated all day and most of the night to various people also xp pro with sp3 integrated I also have iso of xp pro sp3 integrated and registered all you have to do is load it then install updates dont even need the key cos that also is integrated.
can give you links if you want but like I say it takes a while to download.

How to make recovery disks to restore to factory settings. My hard drive is dead had to put in a new one.


Find a laptop similar to yours and make the disks from that. You can often just find the image that you need for the recovery disks on the internet, and burn them on any machine to the disks and then use them.


Your hard drive may not be totally dead. Try logging in in safe mode, by hitting the f10 key when the machine is booting.
Sometimes it will boot into safe mode when it wont boot into normal mode.


Also, the operating system may been been corrupted, but the data on your hard disk may be able to be recovered by using your current disk as a slave disk. You may need an external hard disk enclosure for this.


Good luck,

Paul

Boot errors


Made an amazing discovery recently.. could not boot an HP laptop and even tried installing OEM software to no avail. Then, on a whim, I decided to try to boot the HP with a restore disk from another, totally different HP model. Works as advertised! Try it with an Acer (or whatever brand you have) restore disk.

Laptop won't boot. Caps lock and numeric lock lights are blinking. It was working fine after I installed a new hard disk and restored the whole system using my recovery disks and backup. I installed...


Don't restore the system to a hard disk of different size. You may fix the old disk again and use it while using the new (probably larger) disk as an external disk (by fixing a driver bay).
If you want to use the new disk you will have to install the operating system and software from scratch.

I have a lsass.exe error message and netbook keeps restarting, it wont boot in safe mode or anything and I have no cd drive either. Please help...


lsass.exe is certainly a virus issue, the actual process isnt really a virus but viruses hijack the process for their own nefarious reasons.
You only have two options really, 1) use a boot disk antivirus (search google for avg boot cd) and then use the restore disks to try and repair the system file (copy the one off the restore disk to replace the corrupt one on your system)
2) Use your restore disks / another installation disk to build a new operating system.

Just remember if you have data on the drive to take it out to get your data off first. Personally I'd take your drive out and put a new drive in, then build a new OS on the new drive, nice clean and fast, then put your data onto it.

MY toshiba 4300 was working untill i tried to install internet explorer 8 then i prompted me to shut down and ever since then when i turn it on a blue screen pops up saying boot volume or somthing i need...


Hi, yes. Download a program called ERD Commander 2008 or 2005 and make a bootable CD. I think you will download an ISO so you need Nero to burn it on a disk. Then boot from it (on the toshiba 4300) and once you are using the ERD commander, look for system restore, and it's the same as the Windows system restore. Choose a day before you downloaded the Internet Explorer and see if it works. I hope this helps. Don't forget to rate and provide positive feedback for our fast-free response today. Thank you :D

Everex restore cd wont boot


Is your Boot ROM set to allow booting from CD?
Have you tried to boot from another bootable CD, like the Window install disk, a game, a linux install disk, etc? If you can, your drive is at least operable. Check that you don't have the option of retoring from a partition (usually hidden, but seen by the restore program). At that point I would contact Everex for a new CD restore disk (get your proof of purchase and serial info out).

For future reference, please always backup your restore partition as outlined in your user guide, using HIGH QUALITY MEDIA, and do it TWICE! CDs sooner or later ALWAYS fail.

Dell b130 internal system restoration failed


Incase you don't have any thing important on the computer try a factory restore. This will wipe out everthing and make the cmputer like new. To start it power off the laptop. Power it on and hold down ctrl and tap f11 severl times at the Dell logo screen. Try this q couple of times as it may not work the first time. If this does nothing you'll need the os cd (xp cd) tO repair or reinstall windows.

I formated my c drive of my acer aspire 1640z, and when i try to restore with my restore cd i get the mesage boot manager is missing.can you help me pls?


Your restore disks also use fdisk and format to do the same thing you did this way by reformatting, but without all these extra hassles. Do you have a primary partition that is in active status? to check use a Windows boot disk or an MS Dos boot disk making sure that they have fdisk.exe,format.com,sys.com,and scandisk.exe
1.run fdisk and select option 4(display partition information)
2.if the partitions are listed then look for an uppercase A in the status column of your primary partition
3.if there are no partitions listed use fdisk to create new partitions and then use format to format the partitions.
4. then try your restore disks they should work, if you have already done all of this email me thescaleofanubis@yahoo.com and we will move on from there if you are still having the problems. Hoped it helped!!!

Brand new v5535 notebook won't set up keeps coming up with error


Try pressing the F8 key while booting, at the boot option page select the last known good configuration and boot from there. If this does not work, press the F8 key while booting and choose boot in safe mode, then go to start/programs/accessorys/system tools/system restore. choose a date that the computer was acting normal and restore to this date. If this does not work do a reinstall with the system restore disk and drive/application restore disk. BPCS
