  1. Open HP System Recovery:caution.pngCAUTION:Do not perform a system recovery! Stop at the first recovery screen.
    • Press the F11 key repeatedly while the computer is starting.
    • If you have a recovery disc, turn on the PC and insert the first recovery disc into the drive. Use the disc to enter the system recovery.

  9. The error should no longer open. If it does, perform a system recovery, making sure to backup important files.
If you removed a hard drive before using these steps, replace the drive. If the error occurs again, make sure the additional hard drive is not set as an active drive. Only the main bootable drive should be set as active.

Compaq Presario SR5410F says unsuported mode after factory restor


Hi,

You need to restart the computer and start tapping F11 key when you restart the computer, we will be directed to recovery manager. We need to reset it back to factory settings as the factory restore was not completed properly. You will reach a screen which will say " Welcome to recovery manager".

Click on Advance Options and select System Recovery (This will erase all the data and will reinstall the Operating System and the Softwares/Drivers which came with the PC when you bought it).

Click on next after selecting system recovery, select NO when it asks you to backup the data. and click on next. You will reach a screen which will say "Re formating your Hard drive partition". It will take 30-40 mins (minimum) and will prompt a message. Recovery has been successfully completed. Click on Finish and follow the on screen instruction and you will reach the desktop screen in 15mins and PC will work absolutelly fine.

Regards,
Shrey

Do you know where I can find a recovery disc for an HP 873n Media Center PC? I called hp and they don't have one.


Hi,
You are correct HP do not provide the recovery disks for this Media Center anymore.

I've just about searched the net for anyone who may have recovery CD's for sale but no no avail.

If you can still get into the operating system use HP Backup and Recovery Manager, its quick and user-friendly. To run, simply go to All Programs > HP Backup & Recovery > HP Backup and Recovery Manager. With HP Backup & Recovery Manager, file restoration is easy. To recover a deleted file, simply use the Restore Wizard.

For a full system restoration, press the F11 key during boot up and then select "Recover PC" from the menu if there is a recovery partition available (sometimes you have to hold down Ctrl and hit the F11 key on boot up)

Other than that you may have to purchase a Windows XP or Windows XP Media Center installation CD from a reputable store like PC World for example.

Good luck.

Restoring Files


Is the first of your backup disks a boot-disk?

Often full system backups are restored from a bootable set of disks. There should be a message during startup to press something like F8 to change boot device. You could try using this to see if disk one of your backup is a boot disk & will allow you to restore your files.

Turning off messages and savings pictures


First of all, a recovery disk would be helpful to make for future purposes. so if the backup program open, you might use it.

but if you get tired of the HP software opening--
1.click START-PROGRAMS-STARTUP--- delete any shortcuts here.
2.click start-run- type in "msconfig" when it opens , select the startup tab
uncheck all the boxes of programs you wish not to start when windows starts, click apply, then OK.
restart the computer. when it tells you "you have used the system configurator to change the way windows starts" check the box telling it not to tell you again and click OK.

this will NOT unistall any programs, just sets them to not open untill you manually open them which frees up system resources and make the computer run better.
