Could be your disc scratched or dirty, try to make a copy of the disc and see if it will boot from that, or take out your hardrive, repartition / Format / Wipe CLEAN it with an adapter and another PC and then replace and try ! Good Luck the Yeti

How do i format my laptop sony ns-series completely because it got spyware virus in it and i want to format it completely. thanks


Hi,

The computer is supplied with a recovery partition in the hard drive. You can use the same to restore the computer back to factory settings. Please restart the computer and then press and hold F10 key to access the recovery partition. Once you access the same, please select "Restore C Drive" to perform a System Recovery.

As you have mentioned that the computer is infected by virus, there is a possibility that System Recover using the above method may not eradicate all the virus. In that situation a "Complete System Recovery" will be required. To perform a Complete System Recovery, you need the recovery discs. If you have created the recovery discs before, then you can use the same to perform a complete system recovery.

Else you can purchase the recovery discs from the below link:

https://servicesales.sel.sony.com/ecom/accessories/web/shoppingCart.do?operation=addToCart&itemId=679907&searchOperation=partSearch&searchText=Y8318687A

It is required to purchase the recovery discs only if the first step didn't resolve the issue. I'm providing the second options as additional information.

Hope this helps.

Thanks!!!!

When using the restore discs on my emachine w4682, restore freeze


In that case unfortunately, you are probably going to have to get a Windows DVD. Set the laptop to boot off DVD, and reformat and do a complete reinstall.

To reformat toshiba p300-1cn without recovery discs??


If you do not have a recovery partition, you will need to have some sort of bootable disc with an operating system on it. The reasoning behind this is that your computer cannot format a hard-drive it is currently running off of unless the hard-drive is partitioned and your OS is running on a partition that is not being formatted. I would recommend either getting windows recovery disks, or a copy of Ubuntu or such free Linux distributions for this action. After your Laptop is formatted it will have no Operating system and will not work until one is installed on it.

Angel repeatedly asks for discs to do a system recover


Are you the original owner? If you did not make a set of recovery discs, you may have to go to emachines and order them. They are about $20. I recently refurbished an emachine and that is what we had to do.
You will need the model number and serial number. They cannot download it to you either.

I cannot find my recovery /reinstallation disc for emachine 5260


DO NOT click on that Format option. It will wipe the entire recovery partition.

First look at all your programs to see if there is a recovery program. (Not System Restore.) It would probably be located in Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools.

If you do not see one, do a Restart on the computer and watch for a brief message as it begins to boot up. It may say something like "Press Delete for Setup. Press F10 for Recovery." It could be any "F" key, but you only have a few seconds to select it. If you miss the first time just wait and reboot again.

Normally you will have the option to do a full recovery (Everything wiped and restored as if you just purchased it.) or a selective recovery which will save your documents. If you don't have important files or if you can back them up on a flash drive, it would be better to do a full recovery.

Comment back if you are still having trouble.

Hello Humanold,

Please check the following recovery steps:

Full recovery by using recovery partition:

1. Reboot the notebook PC.
2. Keep tapping F11 when the Compaq logo displays.
3. When the Recovery Manager appears, click Next.
4. When prompted to use the Microsoft System Restore program, select No and click Next.
5. When prompted to use the System Recovery, select Yes and click Next.
6. Select the option to perform the recovery without backing up files and click Next.
7. Upon completion of the process, recovery will display "The PC Recovery was successfully completed".
The recovery process will return your PC to the factory image.

Full recovery by using recovery disks:

1. Open the disc drive door and turn off the PC.
2. Insert the first Recovery disc in the disc drive and close the door.
3. Press the power button to turn on the PC.
4. The HP Recovery Manager window appears during the boot process.
If the HP Recovery Manager can access the hard drive, a prompt is displayed to backup the user files before continuing the recovery.
If the HP Recovery Manager cannot access the hard drive to fix the system errors, the HP Recovery Manager will overwrite all the data and reconfigure the entire hard drive to its original condition.

5. Follow the prompts to insert any additional recovery discs in the disc drive.

Start up problem


This generally indicates a hard drive failure. You can try to do an operating system repair with the recovery or operating system disc, but most likely you will need to replace the hard drive.

When you see the IBM screen you need to enter the boot menu. On this screen it tells you what to press to get to the boot menu. Place the recovery or operating system disc in the drive, and select the CD drive from the boot menu, then follow the directions. If the repair doesn't work, then reformat the hard drive and install a new operating system. If you have any issues during or after the format or install, then the hard drive has failed and will need replaced. You want to do a full NTFS format, not the quick format, if the hard drive is bad, it won't format.
