My hp 630 laptop was working well but today when i turn it on, it will start but will remain at Press The ESC Key for Startup Menu and will not continue. What should i do.


It seems your boot image has been corrupted. Pleas try following methods.
1. Go to BIOS settings by pressing F2 during boot. Insert portable OS flash drive in to USB slot. Then select boot from external storage. This will run your portable OS and take back up of your important data to other hard drive. Then reinstall OS image.

2. If you are using windows OS, go to startup system repair option during boot. That will restore your system.

Unmountable boot disk error on blue screen


first, recover your files. You will need to use some data recovery program like asoftech data recovery. you can download it from
http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/Back-Up-and-Recovery/Asoftech-Data-Recovery.shtml

I've had to use it many times in the past but in this case you need to plug that drive into another system as an external drive or slave drive and run the software from there. It will rebuild the drive and hopefully recover the files.

After you get back your files, you can then format the drive and reinstall your system.

I would reinstall xp OS... you should be able to do a restore without loosing any of your own files. After an os restore you may have to reinstall a few programs but your data files should be ok if you do the correct type of install.

Can't boot OS because of file missing


You will need to reinstall the file from an OS installation disc. You may have to reinstall the entire OS. If you need to, you should be able to keep any documents and other data you have on the computer, so long as you are reinstalling the same OS. If you want to upgrade to a different one, however, I would recommend that you use another device to boot your computer (a cd, external hard drive, or flash drive with the same OS you have on you computer), and copy all the desired data from you computer onto another storage device before upgrading. It is complicated to just replace the file manually, and it still requires a resource with the file on it (such as the installation disc), so your best would be to just reinstall the OS, or changing the OS.

I am not sure if you mean the administrator password or your OS serial number. If it is the administrator password you are looking for you either have to wipe your drive and reinstall or download a program which automatically makes you the ultimate startup CD for resetting any Windows password.

Need to perform factory restoe on compaq nc4400 laptop. laptop has no disc drive, i do have an external memory to store data on


A program called Ultimate Boot CD for Windows might be of assistance, personally I have never used the program but its intentions are to allow you to create a boot cd (or possibly a boot flash drive) to actually boot the entire OS, desktop and everything directly from the flash drive so nothing ever hits the hard drive. However your intentions are to probably try and reinstall the os by booting the setup cd from a flash drive instead of the cds but i'm sure it can help do that as well.

Another attempt might be (if your laptop can boot from a flash drive and is set to do so) copy the entire contents of the restore disk(s) to a flash drive that is large enough to contain it all and have it boot from the flash drive. It should pull the bootup files necessary for it to run from the flash drive but it could also need some things set into it to instruct the computer how to boot it, and off hand I am uncertain of those things required.

This should be able to get you started anyways.

Good Luck
