Hdd driver for WD 3200BVT-80JJ5TO DATE. 6 OKT 2011. And how it happen was when I was reinstalling windows I deleted the driver for hdd and now I am really in trouble..... Please answer A.S.A.P. Thank
The driver for the HDD is actually built into the HDD. Windows 7 contains a driver to communicate with the drive. If you have a backed up copy of your operating system (created by you on DVD's or CD's when you purchased the machine) then you have all you need to do a complete erasing of the hard disk and restoring it to the way it was when you purchased it (all your added data and programs will be lost).
Performing a system restore:
HP Recovery Manager software allows you to repair or restore the computer to its original factory state. HP Recovery Manager works from recovery discs, a recovery flash drive, or from a dedicated
recovery partition (select models only) on the hard drive. NOTE: A system restore needs to be performed if the computer hard drive has failed or if all attempts to correct any functional computer issues fail. A system restore should be used as a final attempt to correct computer issues.
Note the following when performing a system restore:
You can restore only the system that you have previously backed up. HP recommends that you use Recovery Manager to create either a set of recovery discs or a recovery flash drive as soon as you set up the computer.
Windows has its own built-in repair features, such as System Restore. If you have not already tried these features, try them before using HP Recovery Manager.
HP Recovery Manager restores only software that was preinstalled at the factory. Software not provided with this computer must be downloaded from the manufacturer's Web site or reinstalled
from the disc provided by the manufacturer.
Restoring using the dedicated recovery partition (select models only)
When using the dedicated recovery partition, there is an option to back up pictures, music and other audio, videos and movies, recorded TV shows, documents, spreadsheets and presentations, e-mails,
Internet favorites and settings during this process.
To restore the computer from the recovery partition, follow these steps:
1. Access HP Recovery Manager in either of the following ways:
Select Start > All Programs > HP > HP Recovery Manager > HP Recovery Manager.
- or -
Turn on or restart the computer, and then press esc while the "Press the ESC key for Startup Menu" message is displayed at the bottom of the screen. Then, press f11 while the "F11 (System Recovery)" message is displayed on the screen.
2. Click System Recovery in the HP Recovery Manager window.
3. Follow the on-screen instructions.
Restoring using the restore media
1. If possible, back up all personal files.
2. Insert the first recovery disc into the optical drive on your computer or an optional external optical drive, and then restart the computer.
- or -
Insert the recovery flash drive into a USB port on your computer, and then restart the computer.
NOTE: If the computer does not automatically restart in the HP Recovery Manager, the computer boot order needs to be changed.
3. Press f9 at system bootup.
4. Select the optical drive or the flash drive.
5. Follow the on-screen instructions.
Hope this helps you out.
