Question about HP Compaq dx2300 Microtower - RT950UTABA PC Desktop

2 Answers

I Friend is trying to Recover his HP Pavilian a305w. On the boot there an windows/recovery option. When he choses recovery ,he tells me that it say somthing like it can't access recovery files. And somthing about backing up the computer first. I told him he doesn't have to back up the computer,because it probably infected any ways. I suggest a recovery disk. We've been looking for a recovery disk,but HP doesn't distribute them any more. I tryed torrent search but get 5 gig files that probably are a bundle of vista ,drivers,and recovery. I just need a way to access the recovery file,I think? Any thoughts

Hello,

Just try best file recovery tool which will help you to recover files from Windows hard drive. Couple of days ago, even I was stuck under similar situation and was thinking how to recover deleted files in Windows 7? Then I tried best file recovery software which really helped me to get back all my important data stored on the Windows hard drive. I think you should also try the software once.

Good luck,

Christin brown

How to boot my pavilian n3250 without any disk


If you have a recovery partition on the hard drive, press power when logo appears you sould see F2 and F10, press F10 while logo is visable this should put you in the recovery sector, follow the prompt for a complete install. If it turns out the option is not available, you will need the recovery disc.

You cant. Unless you create them yourself. HP will only allow back up disks to be created once. HP sucks. Sorry. You may try Best Buy's Geeksquad..they may have ones that they have backed up.

Recovery For ACER 3660


If you have recovery disk try starting them from Windows, or start computer with disk inside and chose 'boot from cd'.
After booting from recovery disc chose complete recovery.
Save a backup of your data, as complete recovery may delete the data.
If recovery disk does not work you will have to install Windows from a generic Windows setup disk, in this case refer to manual for how to.

Here is the user manual, check from page 82

HP PAVILION a305w


try getting into the bios and setting it to boot normally, turn off fast booting if its an option thats on, also, set your CD drive as the first boot devioce, then hard drive. Save and reboot, have CD in drive and just start hitting the F10 key as soon as it starts up, usually you hear a Beep when it detects that you are hitting the key for the boot options. HP pavilions where made to start and skip through the Post Process quickly to limit waitnig time, of course this sux when you want to boot from a cd.

You could try remove ing the BIOS Battery off the board and unplugging the system, wait a minute for it to discharge and put it back in, power it up and see if it lets you boot from CD.

Your bassically resetting the BIOS to factory defaults.

Also, i dont recomend buying HP Pavilions. i wokred on three seperate ones that a customer thought was a New machine ( this was back in 2001 ) but all the parts where 1995 parts, which means wghen they tried to upgrade to windows XP, XP doesnt have any generic drivers for hardware that old so nothing worked and yuo cant find any driver online that are that old.

Good luck anyway.
