SOURCE: HP Recovery Disk Error

You said HP told you to do this. I would call them, ask for a supervisor and relate your story. Branding a hard drive takes software not commonly available to customers.

Good Luck

SOURCE: Have A HP 735P made recovery disks when computer

The most likely cause of this, is that the new hard drive is not the same as the orginal. Restore media is setup to install only on OEM. Orginal Equipement. If the new hard drive is larger or smaller then the orginal it will not properly load.

The easiest solution to this is if the new hard drive is larger, use a disk setup utility and create a partition the same size as the old drive.

If your drive was retail the software to do this will have been in the box. If you purchased an oem drive you can download the drive setup tools from the manufacturers site.

The drive setup utility is easy to use. Boot to it and choose setup drive. When selected it then procedes to the screen where you will need to set the size of the partition. 1024MB is 1 GB. This will help you detemine the size of the partition you need to set.

Good luck

SOURCE: error unitialized corrupt boot structure detected

try repairing the file system using chkdsk with /f switch. However, it is strongly recommended to run this tool only if you have a full data backup
. To do so, click \'Start\' and then \'Run\'. You can then type \'chkdsk /f <drive name>\' in the \'Open\' box and click OK. Here, the drive name should be exactly what is appearing in error message. Alternatively, you can opt for deleting the corrupt partition provided the backup is available. If no good backup exists, you should consider to use a Windows Data Recovery utility. These are powerful and valid Windows partition recovery utilities built to scan the corrupt or deleted partitions and safely recover the lost data. The applications are easy to install and use.

SOURCE: will not boot up after

From the sounds of it you may have to just reinstall windows. If you do not have the recovery disk you can purchase them from HP for 5.oo USD.

My emachines e350 won`t turn on it alweys says No bootable device--Please restart systam and I do that and it says it again


Check that you have not left a non-bootable CD, diskette, or DVD in the drives of your PC, nor have any USB devices plugged in that the system might be looking to try to boot from.

If the above check is clear, then go into the BIOS settings and check that your internal hard disk drive is set as the first boot device or is ahead of any other disk drives you may have installed.

You cannot connect computers to each other by just using a standard USB cable - it doesn't work that way.

If you still cannot boot from your internal hard drive, then you should consider downloading a copy of Hiren's Boot CD (which is a CD .ISO image) then burn this to a real CD and try booting from that media - you may have to select the CD as a boot device in your BIOS or if you get a boot options menu.

If you can boot the Hiren's CD ok, then your internal hard disk may have failed - you can test this with the DOS Programs of the Hiren's CD by selecting Hard Disk tools then selecting HDAT2 which will try to find any installed hard disks then allow you to test these and repair problems if possible.

How to format my hard drive in dos


Rita,

Most computer recovery disks will perform the formatting for you. (This depends on the Manufacturer and Model though...)

If you put the recovery disk into the computer CD/DVD Drive and restart the computer - to boot to the disk, it should launch the recovery process and warn you that the hard drive will be erased and all data will be lost. This warning step is the recovery disks way of informing you that it will format the drive.

To boot to the CD/DVD you will need to tell the computer to do that. When the computer first turns on, you should see a brief message at the very beginning of the boot up process. The message will say something like: "Press Del for Boot Device" or "Press F12 for Boot Menu" or something of this sort. If your recovery disk is in the drive and you can get to the boot menu by pressing the key the computer prompts you to press, then you should be able to start up with that recovery disk.

Allowing the recovery disk to run through it's full process should format the hard drive and set your computer straight.

Make sure to run all of your updates once the recovery is complete and also make sure to install and update a good anti-virus software of some sort.

When a compaq armada m700 laptop is showing non-system disk or disk error replace and strike any key when ready


this usually happens when the computer is trying to boot from a disk that isn't a valid boot disk.

if you have a floppy drive plugged into the multibay and a floppy in the drive, try removing the floppy.
if there is no floppy involved, try to boot from your system recovery disks, as it's likely that the boot record on the hard drive will need repaired. your system recovery disks should walk you through the process.

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.

You can see if there is a recovery partition on you hard drive by pressing the F12 key as soon as you turn on your PC and select boot partition, if not, you will need to buy a set of recovery disks from the manufacturer, it will cost you around $30. If you have a Windows CD you can boot with it and install Windows and download all the device drivers from the manufacturer site. I hope this helps. Good luck and have a fantastic day.
