If your computer came with recovery media, you'll want to insert and boot from the operating system install disk (if it doesn't boot from your media automatically, you may have to change the boot order in BIOS [hit f10 at boot time]. Depending on the version of windows you are running, the boot options will be slightly different but you want to end up in repair mode. in XP that will mean hitting "R" to repair, vista/7 you will hit "repair my computer". Once you can get into a recovery console, you'll want to type: sfc /scannow That will find and replace corrupt system files and boot drivers.
Sounds like you need a windows vista operating system disc. The recovery discs set your system back to factory settings like when you first brought it home from the store. But to me, the system is bloated with all the software and trial junk that you don't need. If you can get your hands on a Vista Operating System Disc, then do a clean install from it. Just make sure your Certificate Of Authentication (COA) sticker is readable so that you can activate the vista once you've got it loaded. If you can't get your hands on a system disc, take it to a computer repair shop, I would think you could find one that will load the operating system for $60 or less.
If by restore to factory settings you mean reinstall operation system ..you need either a recovery partition or disk ..to use ..or a boot-able disk with the operation system .. if you have teh recovery partition just press teh key indicated on start for recovery and boot from the partition and proceed for recovery ..or insert the disk ..restart and press any key when asked for to confirm boot from cd ..and proceed with the recovery ..(same way for boot-able disk ) In case it does not boot from disk ..you need to press f12 on start to get to boot menu and select the cd and press enter to force boot from disk ..confirm by any key and go on .. If you don't have any recovery ..try to borrow or buy or make a boot-able disk ..and install the operation from it ..either by changing boot order in bios or by pressing F12 on start with the disk inside ..select boot from disk and enter ...again press any key to confirm ..and follow instructions ..If you do not know how to do it ..and you are ready to do it anyway...follow one of my services ..and I will guide you by remote assistance to make a disk ..and after that find a way to guide you trough the installing (probably messenger )
You should have a recovery cd, it will allow you to reinstall Windows. If you don't have even that then either borrow one from a friend and use it with you key (the one on the sticker), or order a new disk by following this
The installed Windows in your laptop has been corrupted beyond repair - you will have to reinstall it.
For that pres F11 during boot to launch the HP Recovery Manager from the recovery partition then follow the instruction. If even that fails it means that the hard disk itself has failed - the disk will have to be replaced and to reinstall Windows you will have to order a recovery cd for your exact model from HP.
If the boot manager is missing then the hard disk and everything on it has became inaccessible - including the recovery partition. You will need to do a full reinstall using the recovery cd that should have come with the pc when you bought it - sometimes you were supposed to create it with the provided software. If you don't have it then either borrow a similar Windows install disk or order one from HP.
Next.... BACK UP your data...and TEST it.....make sure your data is working on your backup media....formatting the drive will erase all your data and start over from a fresh copy of Windows.
After that you need to boot your PC from the recovery disk (if it doesn't ask you to boot from the CD you will need to hit F10 key at your HP splash screen to enter the system BIOS. Find the boot order setting and change it so the CD/DVD drive is on top)
did you go into the bios and change the boot order to boot to the cd rom first? Then it should boot to the disc. Otherwise you may want to use any xp/vista disc do the install dont insert a cd key then once windows boots up then put the disc in and try a recovery. Thanks, Lee
the recovery disk is designed to repair or restore a system to its previous factory condition and is not a full installation. the formating of your hdd would have erased all the data required for this process to be completed. you can try a recovery utility that may be able to help you at this link. the disk might not have been saved in an .iso format to tell the computer to run it before starting an OS. if this disk is recognized and runs on your system then you will need to attempt a recovery, which is unlikely since the drive has allready been formated many necessary system files may not be able to be restored. at this point a complete new install will be necessary.
