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.

I recently connected cable tv to my media center, but the remote doesnt work anymore. Do I have to reset it to make it work if I havent used it in a while. I changed the batteries first but it didnt help


if you have a camera mobile phone just place the remote transmitter(front side) before the lens switch on the camera and press anything in the remote if you could see any colored light flashing in it then the remote is working fine.If not try replacing the remote.
If your system comes withe separate drivers for the tuner then try reinstalling them it will help

I have windows xp media center. I go to control


I would try booting in to safe mode see what happens
  1. Restart your computer and start pressing the F8 key on your keyboard. On a computer that is configured for booting to multiple operating systems, you can press the F8 key when the Boot Menu appears.
  2. Select an option when the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, and then press ENTER.
  3. When the Boot menu appears again, and the words "Safe Mode" appear in blue at the bottom, select the installation that you want to start, and then press ENTER.
If it works in safe mode you may have a permissions issue or infection of some type.
Run a virus scan.

Remove any devices connected to your computer.

Major HP crash


i think you got the wrong disks man, nothing to do with the motherboard.

a clean installation

it is recommended to this service at least
once every 8 months, it wipes all your hard
drive from data, programs, bugs, errors and viruses
this will 100% solve your problem guaranteed.

for xp, insert the xp installation disk
restart the computer and a message will
come up asking to press any key to boot
from cd. once you do that "i mean you press a key"
then a blue screen will load then asks you
to press Enter to install xp.

1. press enter
2. select the partion and press enter
3. select continue "it warns you to delete files"
4. select format "quick"
5. now let it do the rest and follow instructions
6. when the installation is finished you'll notice
its like new again, some computers will need
drivers which you can get from manufacturer
website. download and install them.

that's it but for a detailed information click here

Hp media center power


hi friends, unpluug the power chord from the wall jack after that press and hold the power button in the front for about 15 seconds, connect the chord back in and try it. if it does the same then look at the rear side of the cpu box (where the power chord goes in and look for a small fan inside the power supply box, it has to be spinning). if not then the power supply (smps) has goen bad. now if the fan is sipnning try disconnecting all the extra periferals eg printer and stuff, still nogo then try opening the cpu box (reffer owners manual). take the RAM out and try to power up the system, if it starts beeping like beep ...beep... peeeep... then turn it off put the ram sticks back in and it should work fine...
NB:-for the owners manual check this out: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/manualCategory?cc=us&dlc=en&product=470506&lc=en&jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN

Start up problem


I've checked your media center model on the net and it appears to be a known BIOS problem. Keep in mind that this is most likely video card or motherboard failure. But we can try resetting it Try booting into the BIOS using the F10 key and then pressing F12 and pressing y. The system should reboot with the default BIOS settings. If there is any change you likely have a good chance at fixing it. Please post your results.

Media Center - Live TV not working


I am assuming your computer is intel. Have you tried reinstalling your video/graphics driver? Go to the intel website and search for a driver update.
