Question about HP PAVILION A6230N DESKTOP PC

2 Answers

Backup The HP Pavilion Desktop has a D: drive for restoring Windows XP. I am looking to the future, to the day when the C: drive eventually fails. If I now backup the D: drive to DVD, can I use that DVD in the future to reinstall Windows XP on a new C: drive if my current C: drive fails?

Hello I have a HP Pavilion a1320N it is running very slow, so I want to do a full recovery back to the original state, but I did not create a set up disks when I bought it. How can I do a full recovery?


Use an external hard drive to backup your files and do the recovery... or better use the System Restore utility to at least restore it to an old backup date.

To fix hpzjrd01.dll errors occurring due to corrupt or incomplete installation of HP printer software, uninstall your printer driver and reinstall it again.

To ensure the HP printer software is completely uninstalled from your system, we recommend you either use the built-in Add or Remove Programs utility or use the help of a third-party uninstaller, such as Perfect Uninstaller.

Hi There,.

I recommend you work your way through this guide before attempting file transfer.

http://pcsupport.about.com/od/findbyerrormessage/a/stop0x0000007b.htm

The best way to recover the data you want is to remove the drive, install it in an external enclosure and read the file from another computer, saving them to flash drive or another external storage drive.

Regards,

Marcus

Windows 7 will burn me a backup and rescue but opens them and other things to file instead of run , I think its internal and bad windows 7 . Posible not formatting right as it will not recognize any data...


Windows 7 will not open files or anything else that you have backed up. The backup is to RESTORE files and programs that have gotten damaged due to a hard drive crash. You want to save things to a cd/dvd just use file copy not backup. Like i said backup is NOT for file storage. Hope this helps

Cant reinstall XP asks for restore plus cd!!!


Dear Sir,

Welcome to Fixya Support.

According to your problem description,it seems that you formatted your computer hard disk by connecting it to another PC.If it is yes.
Your Hard Disk completely formatted along with your windows drive i.e C drive. So you have to reinstall operating system by using recovery or restore plus CD supplied along with your PC.Restore plus cd means a CD which is having operating system files,and needed when operating system fails to boot.If you purchased Genuine operating system along with your PC,you should have recovery or operating system CD.
if you are not having recovery CD,you can use windows XP CD for fresh installatin of your operating system

I think it helps.

If you any difficulty leave a comment,we were happy to assist you.


Have a Nice Day!

Hp pavilion a1220n shuts dwn after loading hp8500 pr drv xpsp3 os


If you can boot into safe mode, then once in safe mode open system restore and then restore to a couple days prior to the install of the hp drivers. This should fix the problem. If you need to know how to get into system restore let me know your operating system (Vista or XP)

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.

WRONG RESTORE CD IN HP PAVILION A1330N


Alright, if I understand you...You possibly lost the original operating system disc for your HP Pavilion, and your daughter used a Windows XP restore disc, and now it is asking you to register the software?

AND you also lost the set-up software for your Internet provider?
