Start computer failure

Dear Guru & Wiz's.

When i start my computer in does not run..

I located a 'Recovery Disk' and turned the computer off and inserted the disk and then started the computer. The computer reboots so far and then prompts me to insert a 'Master CD 1' as i do not have a Master CD 1 i am wondering how i can obtain one and if a cost is involved.

Or if there is an alternative at all.

your help will be greatly appreciated.

Well..what they are most likely asking for is the original set of installation disks, that should have come with the computer when you got it. Have them around somewhere?

My emachine laptop has a virus. When you turn it on it goes to black screen with the option to start recovery mangement or start windows.When pressing either,it goes to black screen for a little bit then...


You may have files that you want to keep that you saved on your hard drive, but if you haven't backed them up then you will have to lose them because the only thing you can do to fix this is use the factory recovery disk which will wipe your hard drive clean.Just put the disc into the disc tray and you should get an option to start the recovery disc when you turn on the computer, it will tell you to press a key to start it which might be f3 or something different, I'm am not sure what key but when you have done that you should be able to start the recovery and wipe the hard drive clean and it should solve your problem

NOT ABLE TO INSTALL WINDOW XP


Hi meetabdullah,

Have a nice day.

If you're running Windows XP and your computer software crashes or becomes unusable, you may have to run Windows XP recovery to reestablish your software and make your computer usable once again. When purchased, many computers don't come with a Windows XP recovery disk, but you can download one for free. The Windows XP recovery disk holds almost all of the computer software and files that came loaded with your PC and can assist you in rebuilding your hard drive.

Here are some instructions that somehow could help you:

1.Place a formatted disk in your disk drive. Click on the "Download a Windows XP recovery disk from Microsoft" link in Resources below. Click "Download." Then click "Save." Find your disk drive on the menu and click "OK."

2. Remove the disk when the Windows XP recovery disk download is complete, and place it in the computer on which you need to use it.

3.Shut down your computer; then turn your computer back on. Your computer will automatically start up running on the Windows XP recovery disk, which will allow you to install Windows XP once again.

DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER


your system either does not detect a bootable disk, or the HDD has failed. Disconnect any floppy disk, USB storage devices connected to the computer and make sure the HDD with an OS installed is the primary boot device. If you get the same error, remove and reconnect the hard drive. If all else fails, try repairing or reinstalling Windows. If nothing works, you may need to get a new HDD.

After a long time trying to start my computer has a blank screen that says "system failure insert recovery disk" I have recovery disk that I made when the unit was new. but they do not do anything.


Try rebooting the computer with the back up disk inserted in the slot. This should work because the computer looks at all the disk drives when it reboots. And should default to the backup disk. :)

Got virus av guru, how do i remove it?


Hi

I know the last soluation will not have heklped as the av guru stops you from opening anything even IE so here is what u do.

Turn off your Computer!

Re boot and as oon as you get the start box appearing click on it,
Click All Programs
Accesories
System Tools
System Restore

The system will shut down automatically and resotore will start.
Leave this to run select a dtae 24 hours before you got virus and all will be well.

Trust me I had it early this week .

Once done run anti virus software, Spyware, Reg cleaner and Defrag

This will sort it completely.

NOTE:- You do have to be very quick with starting resore OR virus wil stop you opening anything.

Get back to me if u need anything else.

When I start my emachine T3306 gets a black screen with just the cursor? I do not have a system recovery disk. What do I do?


you need to get a operating system boot disk such as ultimate bood disk ( google) or you can go to your local computer store and purchase one of there products that have recovery disks. Your problem is either virus or hard drive failure or maybe system driver is hanging your system. The recovery cd will help you boot into your system and get some more info. You can also call your computer maker and purchase your install media kit which will contain your operaing system and drivers and once run will return your system to it's factory state when you purchased it. Your computer make will charge a fee for these disks, all computer manufacturers charge differently

Trying to use recovery disk for VGC-RB34G PC. Disk 1 will not start. Properties show it full but unknown file type. Disk 2 appears to be ok but will not operate without disk 1. How do I get factory...


Sometimes manufacturers use proprietary software to start their recovery disks and that perhaps is why the file type is unknown. You say that it will not start. Are you trying to run it from within windows or at start up. All of the recovery disks that I have worked with have to be started from the boot up. The computer has to be set to start up from CD. Try that and let us know what happens.
If you need help getting the computer to start from cd let us know and we will help you.

Computer will not start


do you have a recovery cd? that came with your system, id boot from it and run a recovery. Otherwise if you have windows xp installation cd, do what is called a "repair install". Follow the instructions on this link below:

http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm

read the WHOLE page and follow the instructions carefully if you don't want to lose data, a mistake can be costly.

Good luck!
