    How are you trying to perform the Recovery? Is your computer's Operating System Windows XP or Vista.



    Here is a link to Compaq website on the many ways to perform a System Recovery and how to create Recovery Disks.

    ok ... we need to clarify... system recovery and system restore are not the same ... one will erase your hard drive (if you have the recovery disks)

If you had a recovery disk given to you when you bought the pc, then used this to enter the recovery console. I pressume that you want to do a repair, in that you want to restore it to factory conditions?

Simply go into the bios and change the primary boot device to CDROM instead of hard disk. To enter bios, press "DEL" a few times when you first turn the pc on. The default is DEL but i have seen some systems with F2, (it will say what button you need to press to enter setup, look closely on the screen).

If you did not get a recovery disk, then there will be a recovery partition on your hard drive that you can normally access using an "F" button on the keyboard, usually F10,F12, etc (it should flash up briefly when you turn the pc on).

I hope this is of some help to you. Feel free to IM me if you need to ask more questions.

Run the recovery console and type chkdsk /r

Insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.

Boot from the CD

When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.

If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console.

When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.

Then type the chkdsk /r command

Let that run through and then restart the machine after it finishes.

If that doesn't fix it, run the Windows XP Repair Installation. You can find a walkthrough here - click here

Emachine computer. hard drive crashed


If the hard drive on your computer crashed what will be your next step here is to reinstall back to your computer including the operating system, but you can also try doing a system recovery if you have a recovery disc and run it and there you will see a option to do a recovery on your system. But if you also have a recovery disc for it you can also use that in recovering the computer.

Where can I download a Toughbook CF-18 Tablet PC Recovery Disk, mine disappeared. rc


Finding a complete recovery disc is prooving difficult. i have found a couple of alternatives to getting a complete install on disc, but they do take a little bit more time.

if you have a copy of the windows which you wish to run your system on. which nowadays arent hard to comeby, then you can use this link as a driver and compac software restore disk
http://www.user-guides.co.uk/cddownload/Panasonic/PanasonicToughbook/Panasonic-Toughbook-CF-18-XP-Driver-CD-Recovery-Restore-Disk-108878.html

however these downloads / cd'a have to be purchased. i really wouldnt bother with it. drivers and apps for compac arent a must have and usually just do things to make the GUI fancey or easy to use. most drivers will be picked up on windows install and the rest wont be hard to track down. a standard windows install is surfice for most things and runs quicker than an install full of tosh little programs.

Compac deskpro Pentium 111 - 600


I'm not completely sure on what you are exactly asking here, but I'll do the best I can. If you have the Recovery CD, you need to boot from the CD and run the Recovery. When you go to do the recovery you will have two options, the normal recovery or the destructive recovery. If there is nothing important and everything can be wiped, run a destructive, but if you need everything run the other one. If you do not have a Recovery CD but have a Windows Vista disk that matches the version on your computer (IE: Windows Vista Home 32 bit is on your computer and you have a Windows Vista Home 32 bit disk) and you DO NOT need anything saved, just reinstall Windows. There is a product key for Vista on the sticker attached to your case. If you have neither, then you can probably get a new recovery disk by contacting HP (since they bought out Compaq). If you can not get a new Recovery CD, you will need to go out and buy a new copy of Windows Vista.

Sounds like a failing hard drive or corrupt file system.

 

Or possibly you have a non bootable disk in the floppy drive, assuming it has one as most laptops dont.

 

Is this Windows XP? If so, try booting from the XP cd. At the menu, choose R for recovery console.

 

In the recovery console, type in CHKDSK /R and let it run, it may take well over and hour to run, if it runs at all. If the recovery console is unable to load, or chkdsk wont run, you may have a failing hard drive.
