Upgraded motherboard and windows 7 in restore during startup


If you put in a hard drive that already had an OS on it and such, it won't work since the new computer has different parts from the last. You will have to buy Windows 7, or obtain windows through some method of your choice and do a clean install. Sorry buddy.

My laptop's care button dosn't work. I work with win 7. i can't find any driver for this. please help me.


Welcome to Fixya

The lenovo care button was built to restore the computer back to the factory state if in any case you will be experiencing software problem with your computer and you want to restore it from the original state. If this button will not function for no reason then then only person that can help you is the Lenovo repair department. You can send in the computer to lenovo depot repair and have them re-image the harddrive so that the Care button will be reinstalled.

Thank you for using FIxya!

One Key Recovery is not working and can not find the hide original. All System - Recovery-Points also lost.Please help me!


Welcome to Fixya

Someone might have messed up your harddrive that is why one key recovery is already gone. Hidden harddrive partition will be erased if you installed new windows or repartiotion the harddrive. If you are going to restore the computer back to factory default state, you need to order the disc, If you still wanted to have the hidden partition back to your computer, you need to contact lenovo and send in the computer to repair department for HD re-imaging.

Cannot get system restore to its original state


You say it's not taking anything off. Just what is it you are trying to do?
System restore will go back to any of a number of restore points if your computer suddenly has problems. It will not remove any files or data. If you have installed a program and do a restore back to before you installed that program, the files will remain but the program will no longer be seen by Windows.
If you want the computer to revert to it's original state, you must do a system recovery or, if this is not an option, you should reinstall Windows.

Maxtor 3200


Seagate troubleshooting Error Code 10, states that drive has failed. (Seagate bought out Maxtor)

Before you resign yourself to everything is lost on this harddrive, how about trying one more thing?

How about putting the harddrive inside in a new external enclosure, and see if it works? I suggest that perhaps the external enclosure it's in, is bad.
The harddrive inside is a 3.5 inch harddrive. Same width as used by a desktop computer. It is a Sata harddrive.

Here's an example of a 3.5 inch Sata, external enclosure,
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3901268&CatId=2780
Just pop the external enclosure open that holds it now, take it out, and install it into an external enclosure like the example above. Plug in the USB cable.

Don't know if this applies to your particular Maxtor Personal Storage 3200, but when I went to search for the type of harddrive it uses just now, I ran into thsi, and thought I would pass it along. http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/downloads/personal_storage/ps3200-sw)

Ok,

first - You will delete everything on your harddrive with this method.

If possible- scan your disk for viruses.

get to a C prompt.



In most programs you will have an option to boot to C: or even C:>Windows
If you do not end up in C: you can get there by typing
c: and enter

MAKE SURE YOU ARE IN C:


-i.e. not the system drive

CHKDSK - enter

You have a large harddrive - this will take time.

We are checking to see if your hardrive is broken.

if the harddrive is ok

FORMAT YOUR DRIVE- this will take time.

Type FORMAT and hit enter

WHEN YOU DO THIS YOU WILL LOSE EVERYTHING!!!!!

Insert your system disk and follow the instructions provided by the manufacture

How do I use recovery partition in the Medion mim2220 laptop. I need to restore the complete laptop.


The best way to restore the computer back to its original state is to just install its original windows with an Install disk. My Restore was only good for one use and I used that up shortly after I got the computer. What ever your system is rather it be Mac or Windows, just reinstall windows and that will work perfectly. Good Luck.
