Question about HP Compaq nx6125 Notebook
Does the laptop give you the option to create recovery cds or dvds? If so, do that FIRST. This will give you the ability to restore the notebook back to factory defaults (everything created afterwards will be destroyed). Next, back up any data you want to keep (pictures, music, documents, etc.). Portable hard drives are incredibly cheap (a certain department store carries 250 gb drives for $60). There are programs that can retrieve your serial codes for your programs (Belarc Advisor). Acquire a copy of your programs after you get your serials. If this seems too complicated, youll need to head to your local computer repair shop. MAKE IT CLEAR TO THE SHOP YOU HAVE DATA YOU CAN'T AFFORD TO LOSE!!! Many shops have disclaimers about copying data and are not responsible if anything goes wrong. Some places will charge a lot to rescue your data. Shop around.

System Recovery (sometimes referred to as Factory Restore) will set your system
back to when you first purchased it. It Deletes Everything. Most
times the System Recovery does not work unless there is a recovery partition on
your hard drive created by the manufacturer. If you are trying to recover
from a set of cd's most times it does not work.
Instead of doing a System Recovery it's much easier to just Reinstall Windows. Look on your computer for the Certificate of Authentication (COA) Sticker. It will tell you what operating system is on your computer and it will give you the Product Key Code (a series of 5 letters and numbers) that you will need to activate windows. If you don't have an operating system disk, borrow one from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker. Just make sure it is the same as your COA Sticker's operating system or it will never activate. Also make sure you get the COA Product Key Code for the disk you borrow because sometimes the system will ask for the one that is on your system and sometimes it will ask for the one from the installation disk.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or
a operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from
it. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white
letters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice the percentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run to completion. Then reboot machine.
If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows. Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs.
In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair when the options appear.
In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recovery console and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.
