Hi,
In order to resolve the recovery manager application please see the below mentioned steps:

On startup, press f11 to launch Recovery Manager.

Entire details on the process can be viewed at:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&docname=c00809678#RestoreWithoutWindows

If F11 does not help, the last and sure shot resolution would be:

START > Control Panel > Administrative tools or shorter way:
START > run > compmgmt.msc and press enter
then Disk management
Find which is recovery partition
Make Mark partition as Active
Then restart pc.

These instructions are a workaround. You are basically running the hidden recovery partition as a main drive.

Please let me know if you need more information.

My hp laptop with windows vista home premium is not booting and showing to insert bootable disk, which I don't have.how i can get this


The installed Windows in your laptop has been corrupted beyond repair - you will have to reinstall it.
For that pres F11 during boot to launch the HP Recovery Manager from the recovery partition then follow the instruction. If even that fails it means that the hard disk itself has failed - the disk will have to be replaced and to reinstall Windows you will have to order a recovery cd for your exact model from HP.

IS MY COMPUTER COMPATABLE WITH WINDOWS 7


The specifications of your computer are top of the line and can handle different applications and soft ware. Based on the hardware specs you've posted this should support Windows 7. But keep in mind that some of your hardware components may need be compatible w/ Windows 7 ( like bluetooth, camera, lan adapter, or wlan). In other words they don't have software driver that is compatible w/ Windows 7.
Also, based on Acer's support site: http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/desktop/0000/Acer/AspireM5100/AspireM5100sp2.shtml
This are the only Operating Systems that this model supports: Windows XP Professional with Service Pack 2
Windows XP Home Edition with Service Pack 2
Windows Vista™ Home Premium
Windows Vista™ Home Basic

Need to recover drivers from my recover partation ( vista home b


Hi,
I suggest you to look for the device manager in the computer [Start--->Start search--->type devmgmt.msc and hit the enter button on the keypad] and download the drivers online .
Or some computers come with the recovery manager utility that helps you burn the recovery partition on the disc, since this is again brand specific,it would be easier if you mention the make of the computer that you are using.
Thanks & Regards, techbuddy247

The recovery partition is usually hidden and cannot be seen in the Windows operating system with out adjustments to the way the files are displayed.

Most likely they are present and you can use the following methods to access the HP Recovery Manager utility.

PLEASE NOTE: Using the recovery utility will result in a complete loss of data. Please backup any data you wish to preserve before running the HP Recovery Manager as all data such as photos, documents, music and favorites will be completely erased after the recovery is complete.

There are 3 ways to recover an HP/Compaq PC using the HP Recovery Manager.

Method 1 involves booting into the Windows Operating System, and starting the Recovery Manager from the HP utilities.

Method 2 involves pressing the "F11" key during initial startup to access the Recovery Manager from the recovery partition.

Method 3 involves using personalized recovery disks created by the user when the machine was new or a replacement set of recovery disk obtained form HP.

Follow the on screen prompts to complete the process. As the machine is has been set back to how it was from the factory, make sure to apply all Windows updates as there will be approximately 3 years worth, including 2 service packs, many critical updates and driver updates.

Keyboard characters stop showing


This will happens due to 2 reasons 1. Your memory is low. 2. Your system is infected with malware/spyware.
Check your CPU utilization in task manager. Should not utilize 100%. 
For this you need to download Antimalware like malwarebytes and clean the entire system.
Or Have to increase the RAM.
Hope this will be usefull

Starting the recovery from power up If Windows Vista cannot open and if the Recovery partition on the hard disk drive is functioning properly, you can perform a System Recovery by performing the following procedure:
  1. Turn off the computer.
  2. Disconnect all connected devices (such as the Personal Media Drive, USB drives, printer, and fax), remove media from drives, and remove any recently added internal hardware. Do not disconnect the monitor, keyboard, mouse, and power cord.
  3. Turn on the computer.
  4. Do one of the following actions depending on how Windows Vista was installed:
    • If Windows Vista came pre-installed on your computer, press the F11 key repeatedly when the first screen opens (the logo screen), until Recovery Manager program opens on the screen.
    • If your computer was upgraded from Windows XP to Windows Vista, press the F10 key repeatedly when the first screen opens (the logo screen) until Recovery Manager program opens on the screen.
    If Recovery Manager does not open, a set of recovery discs is needed to perform a System Recovery. Follow the instructions listed in Starting the recovery from recovery discs .
  5. Click Next .
  6. On the screen that prompts for Microsoft System Restore select No , and then click Next .
  7. The Recovery Manager gives you the option of backing up your data files. Backing up your files is recommended. To back up your files select Yes , and then click Next . Follow the onscreen instructions. If you do not want to backup your files, select No , and then click Next .
  8. After the System Recovery is complete, the computer restarts and continues into Windows setup. Complete the setup screens and wait until the computer finishes the setup. Then, turn off the computer, reconnect all peripheral devices, and turn on the computer.
  9. Before using the computer, update and protect it by reinstalling any virus and security software that was installed before the System Recovery.
  10. Reinstall any software applications that were added after puchasing the computer, and replace any files that were backed up.
