SOURCE: recover problem

This can happen if the Recovery Partition is corrupted or the Hard Drive is bad.
 First, I recommend you to check the Hard Drive using the Hard Drive test utility available in the BIOS by following the steps below :
Start or restart the notebook and start tapping the F10 key.
This will get you the BIOS Setup window.
In this. go to the Diagnostics or Tools tab where you can find the Hard Drive test utility.
Select using the Up/Down arrow keys and press enter to start the test.
Make sure that you complete the Full test which may take around 80 minutes to complete.
If the Test result is Pass, we can come to a conclusion that the issue is with the Recovery Partition which is corrupted.
You need to purchase the Recovery Disks for your Notebook in this situaiton.
Contact HP Chat Support to get the exact link to order the Recovery Disks for your Notebook.
However, if the Test Result is Fail, you need to take backup of the data in the Notebook and replace the Hard Drive with a new one.
Hope this helps...

SOURCE: Compaq Presario CQ60 recovery disc how to use

insert the disc into the drive, restart the computer.If it doesn't boot from disc, restart again.
As it restarts, press and hold F8(may be F2 or F12 depending on the settings)until the boot options screen appears. Using the arrow up/down keys select drive "d" or what ever drive letter represents the drive you put the disc into.
It will now(or should) continue to boot from the disc, follow the onscreen instructions to restore.

It seems that your notebook does not have sata connection to Hard drive. Your harddrive is IDE connection. Sorry but you can't use SATA on this laptop.

hi

follow these instruction exactly . this will work

If you get the "NTLDR is Missing" error, follow these instructions:

1. Load Windows XP CD into CD drive.
2. Make sure BIOS is set to boot to CD drive.
press F8 or F11 to get into BIOS
3. Boot the computer from CD.
4. At menu, press "R" to load Recovery Console.
5. Select the installation to be fixed.
*The following instructions assume CD-ROM is labeled as drive D and the hard drive partition the windows installation is on is labeled as drive C. Replace the letters accordingly.
6. Type "COPY D:\i386\ntldr C:\" and press ENTER.
7. Type "COPY D:\i386\ntdetect.com C:\" and press ENTER.
8. Remove CD and type "EXIT" and press ENTER (to reboot your computer).

How do i reboot my cpu to factory settings, programs ect..?


You can either use your recovery discs that came with the computer and re-boot the computer with the disc in the drive. The computer should ask you to"press any key to boot from cd" when re-booted. If it does not you will need to go into the BIOS and change the first boot device to the cd-rom drive. Or if your computer did not come with any recovery discs you can use the recovery program if it is built into the hard disc drive. You can usually activate this by pressing "alt" then "f10" when the computer first starts up. Sometimes the computer will tell you what to press to enter recovery mode when it first boots up.

Hi There, try booting in safe mode to download your photos to a flash drive or cd. When you first turn on laptop, and see the curser upper left side of screen, keep pushing "f8" to enter safe mode boot. Select "safe mode with networking" and continue on to save pics. Good Luck...

In the control panel, go to administrative tools, open computer management. On the left side, there will be a "Disk Management" section, use that to assign a drive letter to your hard drive.

Compaq R4000 failed to open the window - how to fix the problem?


I had the same problem with mine. There is an option of "repairing" on the recovery disc that actually keeps all files and software intact. It worked for me, much better than the full re-format of the hard drive and new install of the OS.

Dvd drive


You might try unistalling the drivers and reinstalling them from the device manager. However, this sounds like a harware issue, your DVD drive may be shot.

Compaq Presario R4000 boot error


Hello Joresnore,
When booting to the XP install disk you should arrive at a "Repair Install" option that will not format the HD (I am reasonably sure it has to be SP2 though). It will just overwrite Windows system files, .dll's , etc... I think this is only available when using an XP SP2 disk so if your installation disk doesn't contain SP2, I would look for one that does and give it a try. I have had multiple successes using the repair install method without loss of data.
Good luck.
