My HP laptop isn't booting up and saying an operating system wasn't found what do I need to do


Make sure you do not have a CD or Flash Drive in the computer and then restart. If you still get this message, your hard drive has become corrupted or has failed. Your data may still be recoverable. Pressing F10 or F11 as the computer starts should start recovery options if that part of the drive has not been damaged. If that does not work, other recovery options depend on if you have another computer or if you have a Windows install CD.
If there is important data that you have not backed up, be very very careful because the recovery process can wipe your data.

Data Recovery Software Free Download


Download free data recovery software here to take lost or deleted computer, camera or mobile phone data back from hard drives, USB drives and SD memory cards after unexpected delete, shift delete, format, reformat, CHKDSK RAW drive errors, not formatted drive or card errors, virus damage, computer corruption or drive or card corruption and more known or unknown data loss troubles.
Data Recovery Software to Recover Hard Drive or USB Drive Files 
Generally, when your computer internal hard drive, external hard drive, USB portable hard drive or USB drive with many important PDF/DOC/PPT/EXCEL/TEXT documents, photos, audios, movies, apps, games and the like files are wiped or formatted or reformatted completely due to virus attack, drive RAW file system errors, drive unformatted errors or drive corruption problems, etc, or when your computer hard drive partitions data is lost due to accidental delete, shift delete or Recycle Bin emptying, do not spend treasure time in blaming yourself for preparing no hard drive data backup elsewhere in advance or depressingly suffering from giving up all very, very important information after data loss cases. In such situations, as long the original computer hard drive or USB flash drive is not overwritten by new files, the deleted or lost drive files are still able to be retrieved back with data recovery software. So, stop using your drive after delete or format and select a file recovery tool over the internet.
Data Recovery Software to Retrieve Android Phone SMS, Photos, Contacts and Data
If you unfortunately lose android cell phone SMS, photos, contacts and more data stored on a memory card that used inside this android mobile after a factory reset, security wipe, format or virus infection, or if you do have deleted very important android phone Micro SD or SD memory card games, apps and files since you do have accidentally erased mobile DCIM folder or the likes, do not rush to save new SMS, contact or file on this phone memory card and merely download data recovery software to scan this deleted, formatted, not formatted or RAW format phone memory card to see whether your phone information is still recoverable.
Please Note: Any data recovery software out there always helps scan and recover data that has been saved on the phone memory card, not phone internal memory. So, always save very, very important phone data on phone SD or Micro SD card, not phone internal memory. 
Data Recovery Software to Rescue iPhone Pictures, Videos and Files
When you are stuck in some iPhone photo, video and file loss troubles, there are often two clues for you: firstly go check your Google account to see whether all your lost or deleted information is synced there and is able to be copied back directly. And then, secondly, also download and apply data recovery software to scan the memory card of your iPhone or iPad to get lost data back.
But, if you never save data backups on other storage device and Google account, and also have not used a phone memory card, your data often will be permanently lost or deleted once you perform a deleting or formatting process there.
Data Recovery Software to Get Lost Camera Photos and Videos Back
If your camera photos and videos are lost because your camera memory card says: "the card is not formatted. Do you want to format it now?", because you mistakenly delete camera card folders or do a format there or because your camera memory card is blank or has unsupported file system, also do not panic and plunge this camera memory card to your Windows PC and see whether data recovery software is able to rescue your lost images, videos and files back with success.

How can I get the pictures back, after I've deleted them and emptied the waste bin?


If you have emptied the trash your only hope is to use Recovery software such as Wondershare, or Data Rescue. These are third party programs designed for data recovery in your situation.

Everything is wiped out and there's absolutely no files or pictures or music or anything. I really want them all back! Please help me step by step with my computer! It's known to be XPS 410 PC...


How did the computer get this way?

You'll have to gauge how important the data you've lost is to you, as it's fairly expensive to have a drive recovered through a data recovery service.
drive recovery services Google Search

There is software that may recover some or all of your lost files, but you would want to install and use the software from another computer to read the drive that you're trying to recover data from.

How to use System Recovery console (steps)


Starting a Recovery

Turn on the computer and immediately begin pressing the F10 key repeatedly until a Recovery Screen appears.
You can also start a recovery from recovery discs, or from Windows. For more information refer to Performing a Full System Recovery in Windows XP .
Back to top

Recovery is taking too long
If your computer stops responding after using the recovery program, do the following:

NOTE:If the computer appears to have stopped responding after restarting from a recovery, please wait, it may take several hours or longer to complete the initial Windows XP setup process, especially if a recovery was run from a recovery disc set sent by HP. A Standard recovery may also take longer, depending on how many files are stored in user accounts (like in My Documents ).

1 Exit the stalled recovery process by pressing the POWER button on the PC until the power turns off, this takes approximately five seconds.
2 Before recovering, disconnect personal media drives, printers, scanners, cameras, camera-type memory cards, and other devices that did not originally come with the PC.
3 If you are using recovery discs, be aware of the following items:
4 If you created the recovery discs using Recovery CD Creator, be sure to run the recovery from the same drive that you used to create the discs.
5 Clean the discs with a soft, clean, lint-free cloth wetted with distilled water. Wipe from the center of the disc to the outside edge. You may also use disc cleaning kits or disc restoration kits from your local computer store. These kits produce better results than using cloth and water.
6 You may also use available CD/DVD Drive cleaning kits to clean the laser reading lens of the CD or DVD drive.
Try running a full system recovery again from the hard drive by turning the on the computer and pressing the F10 key until a Recovery Screen appears. This performs the recovery from the hard drive.
7 If the recovery stops when recovering from the hard drive, use the section Disc errors occur during the recovery process to eliminate errors on the drive. Try recovering again after the disk errors are removed.

The Computer cant open the USB Flash Drive. It said that it is not formatted so I try to Format the Flash drive via command prompt. The command prompt said "The first NTFS boot sector is unwriteable....


It should be the file system problem. Usually a usb drive should be formatted to FAT initially instead of NTFS. Recommend you try the USB on another computer and see if the problem still occurs. If yes, then try format it from Disk Management of your computer. If you can't format, use TestDisk (also a command line tool) to fix the file system error. You can also see from this blog post to learn more about the possible reasons or solution. Regards

Want to restore HP Pavillion 505 N computer back to original


To do a system recovery without recovery disks (not all machines can perform this without recovery disks) press the power button and immediately keep tapping the F10 button until you enter the recovery console.

If unsuccessful, you will need to boot using the recovery disks that came with the machine.
  1. Place the first disk in the 1st CD tray (some machines may have multiple CD/DVD drives) and start up.
  2. Start the machine and immediately press ESC button to enter BIOS
  3. Select the drive the recovery CD is in
  4. Press Enter
  5. Once the machine boots off the recovery disk it will provide several options
  6. Press R for a standard recovery
  7. Press F for a "destructive" recovery (will wipe out and format hard drive)
  8. Press Q to quit
Once you've made your selection, the recovery process will automatically proceed. It may ask for additional recovery disks which have more software.

NOTE: if you are currently able to boot into the machine prior to recovery you should go in and back up any pertinent files. Both recovery options will wipe out personal files.

Hi i am trying to recover files which are lost from my jvc everico g camecorder they were nt deleted but may have been erased by hitting the formatting button i really dont know but when i check the index...


You may try some recovery software to rescue the files on your recorder, here are some for your option.

Photo Video Music Recovery (for Windows)
Photo Video Music Recovery for Mac

Both programs can also recover video and music.

Note: Before your files are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the camcorder in case the original files(your recordings) are overwritten.
