Boot manager is missing on Satellite A105-S2051 laptop

Anything that the reps from Acronis did that you no longer want (together with all the information on the hard drive) can be got rid off by wiping the partition information on the hard drive. You will be given just such an option when you begin to install Windows 7 by booting off your Windows 7 installation DVD. You should not get any MBR error messages if you have correctly booted off an installation DVD. The errors you are getting indicates you are still trying to boot from a hard drive (that is probably "wiped clean" or new, and does not have an operating system installed).

My HP Pavilion DV9715nr gets very hot and will shutdown

Check that the fans are not blocked and are also dust-free:

Remove cover with computer running and LISTEN to fans to be sure they are running (remember, listen with your ears, not your hands!)

Unplug the tower and with a vacuum or compressed air and a cotton swab very carefully remove dust from fans and any accessible 'fins' on your processor's heat-sink.

If you've overclocked, undo it.

Dvd or cd dont read in the laptop

This may be resolved as easy as ejecting the disk and and carefully wiping the little glass lens that is visible on the tray of most notebook style DVD/CD drives. Using a clean, lint-free cloth or tissue, GENTLY wipe the tiny lens. If needed, add a very small amount of window cleaner / ammonia to the cloth or tissue so that it is slightly damp - NOT soaked - and wipe again. The mechanism that the lens is mounted to is delicate and often sits on spring supports - so be GENTLE.

If the drive still wont read, there may be a problem with the electrical connections between the drive and notebook. Shut off the notebook. Remove and "re-seat" the drive into the notebook. Turn the notebook back on and access the notebook's BIOS or set up page. Make sure that in addtion to a hard drive being installed that the DVD/CD drive is alos listed. If not, add it. Try to read a disk after the notebook restarts. If running Windows, look at Device Manager in the Hardware section of Control Panel. Click the plus (+) sign in front of DVD/CD. If there is a yellow warning indication or red "x" on top of the drive, use Window's troubleshooter to help resolve the problem.

Why not put the drivers on a disk as a backup. Then you will have them if you ever need them in the future. You can then install the drivers in your notebook.

How can i format my hp desktop??

Well there are a couple different solutions. If you have another hard drive replace it with your other one and make the one that you want to format the secondary hard drive. Then after you boot the computer, all you gotta do is go to my computer and which ever drive the hard drive is set up on you can right click on the right drive. Go to where it says format and click on it and then follow the instructions.

You can also format the hard drive if you got a windows disk. Just put the disk in your cd-rom and restart the computer and then go through the setup process. You will get to a point where it will ask you if you wanna keep the files the same or do you wanna format the hard drive. There are two options for fomatting: There is a quick format or a full format. If you wanna totally wipe everything off the hard drive make sure you do the full format. It only takes a little while longer than the quick format process, so you are just better wiping it totally clean and then reboot windows on the hard drive when it is done formatting......
