    restart an hit f2 before it boots, include the infomation that is necessary in order to help you. Make model number, etc, without that it's really hard, most of the newer notebooks hav an f2 fis, that will re install your system like when you first recieved it. but if that dosen't work call support for whoever you bought it from, if it's a month old they will fix it or replace it I wouldnt mess with it unless you kind of know what you are doing

I think you should first install the driver for the one key recovery function which is being supplied with your laptop.

How can I put my Compaq Presario F756NR back to the factory configuration?

Switch ON the PC, boot the PC in 'Safe Mode' by continuously tapping F8 button after you switch On.

Let windows boot in Safe Mode and log in to windows.

Go to 'Start'--->Programs--->Accessories--->System Tools--->System Restore

Here you will have to check "Restore computer to an earlier time' and click Next
Now you will find one Month Calendar window with Dates below, go to the previous month by clicking the '<' sign in the upper left hand corner of the Month Calendar and select the first date that you see in Bold.

The detail of that particular date should show "System Checkpoint" and time on the right hand side box. Select that date.

Now, Click on Next and System Restore will start and windows will take a reboot.

After reboot your problem should be resolved.

If you feel that my answers have helped you getting solution to your problems then please give a vote.

Welcome to Fixya

Try to restore the computer back to factory state instead of using the RCD. Turn off the computer then push the small button located beside the power button. The screen should show you the One key recovery. Select one key racovery then select restore from initial backup.

Thank you for using Fixya!

My laptop crashed and now will not boot up how do i get it to boot

Try This :

Need tio perform a recovery ... Which is formatting the entire hard disk and re installing the OS
This will end up loosing all your data
You need to disconnect each and everything connected to the notebook
SHut down the notebook completely
> As soon as you turn on the computer keep on tapping the F11 key (Instantly)
It will show the "Recovery manager "
Click on Advanced option
Select System recovery and click on next and complete the recovery .
If the F11 doesn't work need to purchase the recovery disk from HP (Ph. No.: 1-800-474-6836)
This will surely resolve the Issue

My lenovo onekey recovery not working?

Hi All,

I am new to to the community. I recently bought a lenovo G series machine( G550 model #298595Q preloaded with Windows vista and 320 GB HDD) . surprisingly The C: drive contained 254 GB of the total available 284 GB and D: drive had the remaining space. I wanted to inistall linux, I had to partition the C:drive and no where in the lenovo mannual it is warned against the resizing C:)

I used a partition software called "paragon" to resize my C: drive. My system hanged while running the process and after a long wait I had to shutdown my system and after that my OS was not loading.So I decided to recover my vista using one key recovery. I tried the back up I stored in D: drive and in DVD and it is giving an error message that "not enough space in the system" and in the one key recovery menu the target location of the one key recovery is showing to D: drive but my preloaded vista was installed in C: drive and also it is showing the total free space as 298 GB)

Could any one help me to get my vista back.( why the target location of one key recovery is showing to D:)
or is there any way to increase the D: partition from boot setup). Please help me.

and also my warranty is valid , since I touched my C: drive( no where it is warned against that)?

One key recovery not working

This problem exist because once the 31GB default partition is formatted NTFS, it reduces in size. So, I found this solution.

1. Boot your machine with Ubuntu LiveCD
2. Go to Disk Utility and remove the C partition (31GB) and do not format it. Just RAW partition.
3. Now, Power off your lenovo Y410.
4. Press the NOVO key to start OneKey recovery and follow the prompts

You should get an option to recover sucessfully.
