Question about ASUS Essentio Computers & Internet
I need to do a system restore from my recovery disks
As soon as the screen comes up that tells what kind of computer you are using when you start the computer, keep tapping the F8 key and that will bring you to a menu with choices of safe mode, safe mode with networking, and restore to last known good configuration.

I am fairly sure that if you stop the system restore mid stream it
will just resort back to where it was w/o any problems. Then you can restore in safe mode. If it took that long ,if I were you , i would go and clean the harddrive or run check disk or download hard drive tools from; seagate.com and check the hard drive .
Your other option is to use you restore disk and restore the whole thing. If the hard drive is bad you will ending up doing this after you install a new hard drive.

You'll have to use your recovery disk to set it back to factory, unfortunately most recovery disks give you little or no options for which software is to be reinstalled. The only way to install windows without any of the extra software that your computer came with would be to take a standard windows installation disk and install through that. Afterwards you would have to manually install all the driver software.
Alternatively, you can install with your recovery disk and use the add/remove software feature in the control panel to remove any programs that you do not want, just be sure that you don't remove any software that is a driver for any hardware devices.
Hope this helps, get back to me if you need any more information.

Code "purple" means you and your computer are done. It is an unrecoverable error that means you need a new system. However, I have found a couple of postings that claim to know a fix. I can not verify these methods, I do not own a HP or other type of prefab PC (custom is the only way to go). Anyway, here are the links, good luck.

Ok. What you have here is:
1. A bad Hard Drive.
2. A so corrupted files due to several factors including the possible hard drive failure.
Try to remove it from the pc and mount it on another one as a secondary hard drive or better as a slave (you can find a way to do it on the web, explanation is too long). Or, get your self a Hard Drive External Enclosure and mounted on it and connected to another pc as ay External Hard Drive (to me, the external enclosure is the best choice since you can use them for different hard drives and is just a swap out procedure, pretty simple). Either way you do it, if your pc can load it up, run check disk utility for it. That, for the most part, should fix some files to let you access it and do a back up. If I was you and if you succesfully save all the stuff you want to save, I would reinstall the Operative System from scratch. If it fails to install or gives you problems after the fresh install, get a new Hard Drive. Good luck.
P.S.: If my explanation helped you, please leave a review.
