Question about Compaq Presario s4020wm (DK214AR#ABA) PC Desktop

1 Answer

I have lost the #2 recovery cd I created for my Compaq Presario S4020WM computer. During the time I was trying to reformat I kept getting an error message about "missing NTLDR" and would re-boot and get past that to the next cd. My problem is that during this process I have somehow misplaced the #2 recovery CD and cannot access my computer to create another one. Is there a website that I can go to and create the cd again?

MY COMPAQ PRESARIO WHEN TRYING TO RECOVERY STUCK AT 26%


I've seen this happen multiple times when a hard drive is failing and getting frequent I/O errors. Unfortunately, the fix is to replace the hard drive and restore the system from DVD or CD recovery media.

Hopefully, you created recovery disks and stored them away for a rainy day such as this. If not, you can usually purchase recovery disks from the manufacturer for a (hopefully) reasonable price.

My compaq presario recovery cd ask for A:>>what is


Desktop or Laptop ????....
Unfortunately, it is likely that your computer will encounter some form of system error, malware function or hard-drive crash that causes the operating system to become unstable.
To help computer users resolve these issues, HP includes the HP Recovery Manager in each Compaq Presario.
Use the Recovery Manager to recover your system without the need for any additional software CDs, technical support or repair service.
The recovery process should only be used as a last step in troubleshooting your computer, as all personal data files will be erased during the recovery.

Close any programs running on your computer and remove any unnecessary hardware devices that are connected to the computer.
Restart the computer. Press the "F11" key once your computer begins to start up again and before the Windows logo appears.
The HP Recovery Manager will automatically launch.
Click the "System Recovery" option and click "Next." Select "No" in the Microsoft restore window that opens and click "Next."
Select the "Backup Your Files First" option and connect an external hard drive or insert a blank DVD or CD to store the backup files.
Follow the instructions in the wizard to select the files you want to save.
Click "Next" to begin the restore process.
The Recovery Manager will reformat the hard drives and recover the system to a functional operating condition.

Reformat


(A) Try interrupting the boot sequence and telling the computer to boot using the last known good configuration. Here's how: 1) Turn the computer on, and press F8 repeatedly until the boot options menu appears (the menu items include "Start Windows Normally," "Use Last Known Good Configuration," etc.). Use the arrow keys to select "Last Known Good Configuration" and press ENTER. The computer should boot correctly.

if it dont this is the procedure given below to format the whole operating sys 1) Put the CD in the CD drive and turn the computer on. 2) As the computer begins to turn on, you should see the message "Press __ to enter setup" (it's usually F1, F2, or F4 - models vary). Press that key.
3) You should then see the Setup screen for the BIOS ("Built-In Operating System") - using the arrows, find the "boot disk priority" settings and select your CD Drive as the first priority.
4) Exit setup, saving changes (usually by pressing F10). The computer should then boot normally using the CD.

File missing, won't boot up


Your computer may have a recovery partition seperate from the hard-drive that you are accustomed to accessing. When you boot try pressing the F12 key or whatever key that is prompted to enter boot options. Here try to select the recovery partition and reformat from there.
