Question about PC Desktops
My computer had a virus, so it was restored. Well, somehow, it seems to be running on the small partition, or the HP recovery drive (D: drive on my PC), and it is running super slow. I need to get it running on the C: drive (NTFS), how do I do this? Also, it is not finding the two disk drives, so I can't even load the boot disk, XP, or anything else at this point. The drivers for them are there, but it cannot locate the actual drives. Help? Any advice at this point would be great. I am sure it has to be something really simple, but I just can't get to the right spot for some reason. Thanks.
I don't know if you have already solved this problem but you can do a destructive recovery from your recover drive which allows you to partition the other drive same as the CD though purpose of the recovery drive is to restore your computer without using the CD then you have to download all drivers for your computer because the cd dose not have the drivers unless you get a cd with drivers from the manufacter the recovery drive or destructive recovery erases all files and folders on the computer but keeps the operating system and restores your computer to the state it was when you first got the computer. if you had a virus and used a regular recovery that usually does not delete or correct the virus if the viruses in the main system files for future reference the system restore can do the job without using the recovery drive system restore comes with all computers by default and is in the all programs of your start are to get to it you click on start all programs accessories and then system tools in that category should be something called system restore using the system restore allows you to take the computer back a few days or up to three months depending on how your computer does checkpoint so if you get a virus within three days and restore computer back three days a personal styles will not be erased but all installed application in thoses three days will be deleted hope this helps
If you plan to use to recover drive you want advanced options and you want to select destructive recovery your hard drive will automatically be reformatted a partitioned and your os will be reinstalled to do this you want to turn on your computer as normal as soon as you see the manufacture logo such as dell Hp ect... Press either F10 or F11 on your computer whichever one pulls up your recovery menu once their select advanced options and destructive restore warning doing a destructive restore erases all user data except for the operating system and the program's that the manufactured gave you when you first got your computer in your computer will look at operate just like when you first got it hope this helps
