Re: graphics

Hi, It could be the monitor itself that is failing, have you tried plugging in another monitor?

Other than that the recovery disc may not have had the exact drivers for your monitor so you may be able to get the drivers or display adapter drivers for that monitor and install them.

Let me know how you go,

Aspire will not recover

LOL, not surprising, I've seen Recoverys not work lots of times. Your only option now is to reinstall windows. You can try doing a Repair Install which will save your data, documents, music, pictures, videos and programs. But since you were trying to do a Recovery which wipes out everything, you might as well do a Fresh Install which wipes out everything.

My computer is a HP compaq dc 7900. It doesn't start. It keeps on showint NTLDR is missing. What can I do to fix the mess ?

NTLDR is the small program that launches the kernel - the core of Windows. Without it nothing will work. If you have a Windows XP retail install disk you could do a Repair install - that would put back the NTLDR file. If you have just an recovery disk then the only way to fix your problem is to fully reinstall Windows using that disk. That will wipe everything so if you need to recover your files before wiping use a Linux Live-cd to copy them. One like

My hard disk (C drive) is showing as "not installed" in my BIOS menu on my Dell Dimension 3000. My data is backed up and I just want to wipe the hard drive.

Open your computer and de-assemble the hard disk, clean data buses and ports and reassemble the hard disk, it will work.

Im trying to like wipe everything off of my computer so it wont run like **** nymore i dont knwo how o do it though and im not sure if i have all the disks i need to restore it once its wiped... i have the...

If it has windows xp, vista, or 7 then you can go to help and type in 'recovery' or 'restore' to an earlier date.

If you Recover, then it will go to the first day the computer was used and that is done without recovery disks.

Many if not all computers nowadays do not come with disks, but rely on the image stored ont he hard drive.

I would like to know how to wipe my computer clean of everything, like i just bought it out of the store. I do not have the cd's that came with the PC. Thanks in advance!

You would need to reformat the disk by using just about any operating system install disk or partitioning toolset. WARNING: THIS IS NOT A SECURE WAY TO REMOVE PERSONAL DATA FROM A COMPUTER, IT CAN STILL BE RECOVERED BY A PROFESSIONAL AFTERWARDS.

My computer keeps saying disc read error i have tried everything but nothing works

When you receive a disk error, stop using the disk immediately, and do not attempt to open damaged files. The more you attempt to use a damaged disk or file, the less likely a successful recovery will be.
You can try to recover the damaged file(s) with utility programs (such as ScanDisk or Norton Utilities for Windows, or First Aid for Mac OS X), which search the disk and attempt to recover damaged areas. Recovering damaged files or disks can be risky, however, and it is possible to make the problem worse by using these utilities. Unless you thoroughly understand the recovery software process, UITS recommends that you seek professional assistance.
The likelihood of successful recovery depends on the type of damage to the disk. Information stored on disk is vulnerable to dust, dirt, magnetic fields, static electricity, age, wear, and physical disk damage. Taking proper care of disks and making frequent backups will help protect your data.

Need to get a recovery disc or disc's for an HP Pavilion a414x, DESK TOP with windows xp. system #DT037A-ABA; ser.# MXK4090RMV. Bought this used, OS has been completely wiped out, have no recovery disc,...

If the Harddrive is wiped you will not be able to "Recover" anything. No operating system exists. You need a Windows Operating disk. You can buy an official one with the keys and everything anywhere u can buy PC software.

If you borrow a OS CD, do not expect it to work. You need valid keys. You have to bite the bullet on this one and buy the OS. You will also need to download and "properly" install the hardware drivers. This is not as simple as people think and if you think windows update will do a good job of installing the drivers...think again. 9 times out of will get a blue screen error if u let windows install graphic or other major drivers.
