If you didn't get a disk then there should be a partition on your C drive containing the restoration to original configuration data. Consult your manual on how to restore your system from that partition (probably have to tap a key like the "C" key on boot to access the restoration partition). As far as I know no current computers come with OS disks.

Good luck

It tells me there is a problem with web site and FB isn't responding. I'm on the net already and have my home pages pulled up.


HI Michael,

Looks like corrupted cookies. Try deleting them and then try to access FB. Please follow the steps below:
1. Click Start Menu> All Programs> Accessories> RUN or press Windows Key (the Flag key on bottom of the keyboard) and press R
2. It will open the RUN command, type "%temp%" (without quotes) and hit Enter key
3. It will open the Temp files folder, delete all the files in there and restart the computer.

Now try to access the FB, it should be working now.

Thanks!

Pri hard disk S.M.A.R.T BAD wont boot up what do i do


his could be caused by a couple of problems but you are going to need access to a second computer to determine the problem.

1) You have a disk that is failing and it has had an error. Got to the disk makers site and down load their diagnostic program and check the disk. This is a stand alone CD so you don't need to boot into the OS. SMART failures almost always are failing disks.

Another program that can temporarily fix errors is http://www.dposoft.net/ This program will stop after fixing the first error unless you buy it. Again, this is a stand alone.

If it is a disk error, you need to quickly get your data off and install a new disk.

Don't have a second computer? then you need to take it to a local computer store where they can remove the disk, install it in a desktop and check it for errors.

2) This could be a virus, but I think #1 is your problem. TrendMicro.com has a free online virus scan if you can install the disk in a second computer.

Can't load software


If you can borrow a Microsoft full install CD for the version of Windows that came with your machine, you can do a fresh installation using the product key from the sticker on the computer. You will need to download and install hardware drivers from HP's site and also go through the Windows activation process yourself. This will give you a working computer with Windows, but none of the other applications that came preinstalled. (This isn't always a bad thing. HP systems come with a lot "bloatware" preloaded that you can live without anyway.) Unless you paid extra for an application like MS Office, you won't be missing anything.

Black screen + mouse cursor, no access to explorer.


Windows needs to be reinstalled or repaired. Obtain a XP or Vista repair or installation disk (possibly borrow from a friend?) and run a repair installation. If you have another computer running windows you can make an installation disk from that computer.

Cannot get windows xp back on to my computer.


Assuming the computer has a Microsoft XP product code tag on it (so you can be legit & legal), see if you can borrow an XP installation CD from a friend.

Sometimes the reinstall is set up on a separate partition on the hard disk, which of course, is totally useless if the hard drive has failed in a catastrophic way.

You could also contact Packard Bell (I thought this company was history), to see if replacement disk(s) are available. Have your computer's Model & Serial handy. The disks won't be free, but likely much less than a Walmart etc, supplied edition.

I need recovery partition dont have disk


if you saying you can't re-install you computer cause you missing the recovery partition meaning you or someone has formatted the entire drive and you havn't made a set of recovery disks, then the best thing you can do is borrow a disk with the same version of windows you running when you first got it being window xp home or xp pro then you can use the product number that came with your computer on the badge, to re-install it unfortunately you will then have to get the rest the drivers that windows will not detect in start up for your hardware but most can downloaded off the net.
