SOURCE: i have hp pavilion dv6000 i had a problem about recovery manager

Did you attempt to load recovery/factory image from hidden partition and if so did you follow User Manual or Guide re instruvtions? if so there should have been no problems. I would try again though do it slowly and carefully when choosing Options so that you don't change Partitions where the Default Software is.

Was it Alt and F10 buttons when powering up from a Shutdown, i.e Cold Boot?

SOURCE: acer 5515 backlight not working also bootmanager missing

You need to fix the boot manager problem first by connecting an external monitor to the laptop so you can see and do a system repair.

As for the backlight problem :-
You could have a faulty CCFL lamp or inverter, To determine if you have a LCD screen, inverter or video card problem, read this and follow these instructions.
Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashs on red/pink and off. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickering on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp.
Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

How to make a recovery disk for a gt5622 vista


Restart your computer repeatedly tapping the f8 key to enter safe mode while the screen is black once in safe mode where the only things working will be your keyboard and mouse allowing you to attempt to repair your computer

If done properly the user should get to a screen similar to the below screen.

Select the option for Safe mode command prompt only

Windows Advanced Options Menu
Please select an option:

Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt

Enable Boot Logging
Enable VGA mode
Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)
Directory Services Restore Mode (Windows domain controllers only)
Debugging Mode

Start Windows Normally
Reboot
Return to OS Choices Menu


Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice.


Select safe mode with command prompt then type in chkdsk/f/r which will scan for and and attempt repair of bad files and bad sectors on hard drive


You should have no input while chkdsk utility is in progress any input might further damage your computer also


Use the System File Checker tool (SFC.exe) to determine which file is causing the issue and then replace the file.


Type the following command and then press ENTER: sfc /scannow The sfc /scannow command scans all protected system files and replaces incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions.

Configuring updates screen


Try booting up in Safe Mode and see what happens.

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is normal. If it boots up ok, then do a restart into your normal windows mode.


Try running the check disk utility.



To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or a operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from it. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white letters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice the percentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run to completion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows. Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair when the options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recovery console and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

It will not reboot the message 'boot manager is compressed' is displayed and will not move past it


Check points for fixing compressed boot-manager:
  • Boot into Windows Recovery Environment (usually the install DVD or Create a Windows Vista/7 Recovery disk on an USB stick) and perform a "Startup Repair".
  • If the above doesn't solve the problem then boot into WinRE again, but when selecting the Vista-installation, then press "Load Drivers" (Instead of "Next") and use the mini Windows Explorer to right-click the boot-drive and deselect "Compress this Drive" and choose Apply to sub-folders and files.
  • If that also fails then boot into WinRE again, and go to the "Command Prompt" and execute these commands:
    • compact /U C:\bootmgr
    • compact /U C:\ntldr
  • If you for some strange reason have lost your Vista DVD, then you can also use a Windows 2000 / XP install CD and enter the recovery console instead and execute the following commands:
    • attrib -c c:\bootmgr
    • attrib -c c:\ntldr

BOOTMGR is compressed press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart


Insert Microsoft Windows Vista Installation Disc.
Press any key when it says "Press any key to boot from CD".

After that you should see "Windows is loading files..."
KEEP pressing F8/F9(can't rmb which, just press both alternately) while
the progress bar loads..... Dun let go until you reach "Advanced boot
information" where you should see Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking,
Last Good known configuration etc...., just select Safe Mode with
Networking(or Safe Mode/Safe Mode with Command Prompt) and press Enter.
Wait for the files to load and there should be "Safe Mode" on 4 corners
of your monitor.

Just be patient and wait. A windows would soon pop up and says "Install
Windows". Don't worry, click next. Now at the bottom of this window, you
should see "Repair Windows". Click on it, and there are several options
available here. For this case, which is "Bootmgr is compressed.", CHOOSE
THE LAST OPTION - "Start Command Prompt".

OK type these things (Only works if you have Firefox, can't think of
anything else) below and follow closely:

When Command Prompt is started, type the command below first to ensure
that C Drive or whichever drive which contains all your system files is
selected:

LOOK FIRST!

X:System> (The string on the left is what appears on command prompt,
may differ on other computers.)

Now TYPE "C:" or "D:", depending on the hard disc volume you are
using...

SO IT BECOMES:

X:System>C:

PRESS ENTER
THE RETURNING COMMAND WOULD BE:

C:>

If you get this, very good, continue with the steps below.

Now Type:

CDProgram FilesMozilla Firefox

PRESS ENTER

THE RESULT SHOULD BE SOMETHING LIKE THIS:

C:>CDProgram FilesMozilla Firefox (Press ENTER)

C:Program FilesMozilla Firefox (<<<<< Result)


Now type "firefox".

wait for Firefox to launch now.
it doesn't matter if no internet is available.

Now on firefox, go to File > Open File

Double click "My Computer", and you should see your hard disc there,
but don't double click on the hard disc. Instead, click once on the hard
disc, RIGHT CLICK, and choose properties. AT THE BOTTOM, UNTICK, I
REPEAT, UNTICK THE BOX SAYING "Compress this drive to save space
etc....". NOW CLICK APPLY, WAIT, AND I MEAN WAIT PATIENTLY OK? AFTER
THAT CLICK ON "OK".

AFTER PRESSING OK, DO A QUICK LOOK AT YOUR DRIVE BY DOUBLE-CLICKING IT
NOW. IF ANY FILES/FOLDERS ARE BLUE IN COLOUR INSTEAD OF BLACK,
RIGHT-CLICK IT, CHOOSE PROPERTIES, CLICK ADVANCED BUTTON (Beside
Read-Only Box and Archive Box), UNTICK, I REPEAT, UNTICK the 3RD BOX
Which says "Compress contents to save disc space".

Click OK, Apply and close the folder/file properties.

Now close the box opened by firefox, close firefox, close command
prompt AND AT THE BOTTOM RIGHT OF THE FIRST WINDOW WHICH POPS UP
MENTIONED EARLIER, PRESS RESTART.

Your computer should be able to start properly now smile.gif

My desktop keeps restarting and shows windows update 3 of 3. it does it over and over.


If you have a Windows Vista operating system, try this:
Try a system restore from safe mode or from the repair option VistaDVD. Other then that only solution I have is a workaround. See if youcan access safe mode F8 at the boot screen, select "safe mode withcommand prompt" at the prompt type:- Code: C:windowswinsxspending.xml C:windowswinsxspending.old.xml
C:windowswinsxscleanup.xml -> C:windowswinsxscleanup.old.xmlPress enter after each command, reboot you will still see the config updates however it will quickly dissapear and Windowswill boot normally. I would contact MS about this, for a permanent fix.If no safe mode boot with your vista dvd go past the language setup andselect the repair option Now select command prompt (BTW at the "xsources prompt type C: press enter brings you to C:/>) now run thetwo above commands.

If you find this works you may be able to permanently remove the"Update" go to C:windows software distribution and right click select"delete" windows will recreate a fresh folder at boot.

Not opening my laptop


Here's what you need to do to fix it: Find some way to get Partition Table Doctor (http://www.ptdd.com/download.htm) and put it on either a live boot CD or from a secondary hard drive installation. Once you have that, Scan the partition for errors and select fix boot... Then if you're running Vista get a copy of Vista Recovery Disc (http://blogs.techrepublic.com.com/window... burn yourself a copy of the disc, and run it at the boot of your computer. Once the cd is loaded, click on REPAIR WINDOWS, select COMMAND PROMPT, then use this command: bootrec.exe /fixboot

If that doesn't work use: bootrec.exe /rebuildbcd
and see if your windows boots.

IF you have windows XP, boot up with the Windows XP cd, select Repair (R), go into the command prompt (selecting which windows installation you want to modify) and then type this command: fixboot c:

See if your computer boots now.... The important thing is to try to repair your boot which has been deleted or corrupted, that is why it gives the error: err2err3

Try different recovery tools like Table Doctor http://www.ptdd.com/ in conjunction with your recovery cds (windows xp installation CD and Windows Vista Recovery Disc)

Windows failed to start !...


Hi,
Boot your computer with the recovery CD In the Drive.
You should get the option ** Boot From CD**
highlight click Yes, and overwrite the O/S.
This will re-install windows over your existing version, replacing any corrupt-deleted-missing Files.
