You should run hard drive test from BIOS to make sure hard drive is ok. You can access BIOS by pressing F2 during start up, from there start hard disk self test and wait for it to complete. You can also try the recovery options provided by the manufacturer (use the installation DVD that came with the laptop)

SOURCE: Error 0x400 100 130000 1002 while restoring factory image HP

I am assuming you are trying to reinstall Vista. Apparently, HP's recovery partition is less than perfect and the recovery disc you created is probably worthless. (and you can NOT make another one, they only let you make one!) You are not the only person to have this issue.

Here are some things you can try:
1) Borrow an OEM version of Vista from someone...anyone. It sounds like you are proficient with PC's and maybe you know someone who works in IT. Use your product key (25 digit key code) and you should be able to reinstall.

2) if you like Vista, buy yourself an OEM version. It will not have all the factory (HP, Dell, Acer, whatever) BS on it. It will positively work because your hardware if fine.

3) Put XP on it. Personally, I think Vista is a mess. Microsoft is working on "OS7" and soon Vista will be like "Millennium".

Sorry it's not an easy fix, but glad your hard drive and memory show no errors.

SOURCE: i need the hardrive drivers mk1637gsx 160 HD SATA

Theres no such thing as Hard Drive Drivers

Restore disks are created to only work with the default hard drive that came with the laptop. Even if you bought an exact replacement it still wouldnt work as the restore discs looks for the unique serial number of the hard drive and therefore prevents people from using the recovery discs on other toshiba systems or non toshiba systems.

Id suggest borrowing another windows installation disc and using the key on the certificate of authencity on the bottom f the laptop to activate.You might have to ring microsoft to activate it but just explain whats happened and it should all go ok.

If you found this helpful , please rate my solution below

Kind Regards

SOURCE: laptop wont restore to factory settings, begins to

It is possible that partition which contains the factory restore may be deleted.

It normally happens when you have formatted your drive while re-installing the operating system.

The best way is to re-load the operating system using the OS installation Disc.

Please let me know if you need any further information.

Thank you for choosing Fixya

How to restore factory settings on a dell inspiron 230 using disk


Hi,
if you want to reinstall OS:
Insert the disk, it should automatically open the install.exe thing and you'll need to follow the instructions.

if you want to restore the computer to factory settings and reinstall OS:
turn off your PC
keep pressing the key for boot menu it's F8 or F12 or F11 depending on the PC's manufacturer.
Then there will be either a boot menu or a "Do you want to do a system restore":
a) system restore, keep pressing the key and it will load. Then follow the instructions
b) if it's boot menu, insert the disk, and then select the option which says to load from the CD/DVD. Then follow the instructions.

NOTE - PLEASE BE CAREFUL, IF MAKE ANY MISTAKE, COMPUTER MAY NOT RECOVER.

System wont boot up,screen says "the hard disk system is corrupted and will be restored" Ihit restore and it keeps going back to same "restore screen" but still wont start up


If you hold down your power button for more than 5 seconds that should start your PS3's system restore. This will put your PS3 back to the factory default settings, which is essentially what the PS3 was like when you first turned it on.The restore function should run automatically and display a few messages to let you know what the status of the restore is. This will also delete your saved into. If the restore does not start then you have a hardware issue with the unit and will have to get it serviced, or diagnose the issue yourself if you have the tools and experience.

Turns on but says system not found


Try start up in Safe Mode press F8. Choose Safe Mode, when at the choice window, to select either Safe Mode Desktop, OR System Restore, chooses system restore and choose a time before you had the "Problem" and follow instructions. This should get you back. If that doesn't work try running the factory restore if any... else you will have to reinstall your operating system from the Windows Install DVD.

LAPTOP WONT BOOT/START


What problems were you having before doing the recovery with disk?

Do you have access to aother pc? If so you need to get a program called memtest that tests the ram in you computer. Its a free program from here 

www.memtest86.com

You need to burn a cd with the unzipped iso image on it and then let the computer boot up from that to test if ram is faulty.

Instructions are on the site.

The quick restore dosen`t work


What operating system you are using before installing windows xp. If it is windows 98, Your restore cd will restore windows 98. if you want to restore to factory settings pls boot from the restore cd and format the harddisk. Becareful, this will erase your entire data on the harddisk which cannot be recover. If you are using licenced (not pirated) windows xp boot from it and reinstall windows xp so that you can run the os smoothly. But in either case becarefull when you are formating, it will destroy entire data and you may endup in soup. feel free to revert back for further quiries
