How to recovery a hp envy dv7


It depends on which operating system you are using. Here are instructions for Windows 7:
  1. Click on Start -> All Programs -> Maintenance.

    Tip: An alternative is to execute from the Run box or a Command Prompt window. If you do that, you can skip to Step 3 below.
  2. Click on the Create a System Repair Disk shortcut.
  3. Choose your optical disk drive from the Drive: drop-down box.
  4. Insert a blank disk in your optical drive.

    Note: An empty CD should be large enough for a System Repair Disk. I created a Windows 7 System Repair Disk on a new Windows 7 32-bit installation and it was only 145MB. If you only have a blank DVD or BD available, that's okay too of course.
  5. Click the Create disk button.

    Windows 7 will now create the System Repair Disk on the blank disk you inserted in the previous step. No special disk burning software is required.
  6. After the System Repair Disk creation is complete, Windows 7 displays a dialog box that you can close by clicking the Close button.
  7. Click the OK button back on the original Create a system repair disk window that's now showing up on your screen.
  8. Label the disk as "Windows 7 System Repair Disk" and keep it someplace safe.

    You can now from this disk to access System Recovery Options, the set of system recovery tools available for the Windows 7.

    Tip: As with a Windows 7 installation disk, you'll need to watch for a for a Press any key to boot from CD or DVD... message on screen, right after your computer turns on or restarts with the System Repair Disk inserted.

Dvd drawer locked and dvd wont play


Is it a store purchased dvd movie or is it a dvd that someone made and gave to you? Computers sometimes have problems reading cd's and dvd's that someone made. Try a store purchased movie dvd or music cd.

When you press the button on the dvd drawer it does not eject? Clcik Start/My Computer then Right Click on the DvD Drive and click Eject.

If it still does not open, take a Gem Clip (Paper Clip) and straighten it out as much as possible. Then look at the DvD Drawer and you will see a tiny hole that you can insert the Gem Clip (Paper Clip) into. Push the Gem Clip (Paper Clip) while you press the button on the Dvd Drawer and drawer will open. Don't worry about damaging or breaking something, that is why that tiny hole is there.

Laptop dvd drawer stuck closed


The front of the DVD drive, (Tray), has a small hole. It is to the right of the button you push to open the DVD drive.

Use a partially straightened out paper clip to insert into the hole.
This is a manual override.

When the paper clip is inserted into the hole, you will feel pressure, when the paper clip is so far in. Gently push the paper clip in further, until the tray pops out.

Follow with cleaning the DVD drive, with an appropriate product. It could be the laser optical eye is dirty, or it may be that the DVD drive is at the last of it's 'Life-Cycle'.

A DVD drive is a mechanical device, and is rated in hours of usage.

Suddenly my lap got restarted and then didnk work again and when i put windows bootable cd and install it there are no drivers shown


You have to make your PC bootable first.
You can do that from the BIOS .
When you power on read the directions wich it appears on screen and see wich Button of F you should press to enter SETUP (F1 OR F2 ...F12 etc..)
Then press the wanted button and enter SETUP.
Then in SETUP page Go to BOOT and choose the drive of the DVD and make your drives bootable
Then save and exit.
Then re insert your CD and continue

How do I eject a disk from my dell model 1737 studio lap top(window vista) . It made noise are clicking sound when it went in.


Hello Reg,

The CD/DVD rom is tray type then use a pin to eject the tray. There is small hole in front of tray plate.

Insert the pin in the small home and press smoothly and the tray will eject .

If the CD/DVD rom is different type then use long steel V shape clip to pull the disc.

Gerneral advice please


On hibernation, the state of the computer is saved to the disk, to turn it on again press the power button, the computer will read the hibernation image from the disc and restore its state.

You can press stand by, from that mode the computer should come back with the press of a button, the computer might also go into stand by if the cover is closed and come out of it when opened.

let me know if you have further questions.

Reinstall


To reinstall the Operating System? (Examples: Windows XP or Windows Vista) If you have the Full Installation Disk, and the computer plugged into power and turned on, insert it in the CD/DVD drive. Close the CD/DVD drive.

If the disk does not automatically start up, press the CTRL, ALT, and Delete keys AT THE SAME TIME.
This will restart your computer. When the computer manufacturer logo comes up, look VERY closely at the bottom of your monitor screen. You are looking for the key on your keyboard to press, that will let you enter the BIOS Setup. (Older computers its stated as -> Enter CMOS Setup)

It may state -> enter Setup. Or it may state -> Change Setup. Or something similar.
This screen goes by VERY fast. You may have to restart the computer a few times to see it. Write it down.
Once you see the key you need, be ready to start tapping this key in two second intervals, right after you restart the computer again.

When you are in BIOS Setup, look for the Boot Options menu, and enter it. Change the first boot device to CDROM. Be sure to press the F10 key when you have made this change, press the -> Y key, and then press the Enter key.

Your computer will now restart, and boot from the Full Installation Disk you have in the CD/DVD drive.

You can also go to your computer manufacturers website, look for -> Support, and click on it. In the search box on this page, type your computer model name, and model number. On this page look for Contact Us. (HP is Contact HP)
Email them, or call them and tell them you need the Restoration Disk. Some call it the Recovery Disk, or System Recovery Disk.
When you get the disk, put it in your CD/DVD drive tray, close the tray. Let it load. When it aks you, I suggest you click on -> Repair, not Fresh Install.
