How do you do a hard reset on a Compaq Presario cq50-130us I've tried the F11 thing and it didn't work


According to the manual, only certain models had a recovery partition. The manual covers F11 recovery partition procedures for Windows VISTA, but not for Windows 7. If the unit has an SSD installed, it probably does not have a recovery partition. In that case you should use your recovery disks. These are the disks you were told to create at the time you purchased your PC. You can only make one set of recovery disks with the software provided, but they are only intended to allow you to restore the factory image should it become necessary. Many people do not read their manuals or the setup tutorials and fail to create these disks. Then, later, when they need them they are not available. If you don't have the recovery partition, and don't have recovery disks, then you have a problem. You will need to reload the OS manually, and then download and install the hardware drivers from the Compaq support site.

I don't have recovery partition


follow this step and do it. God bless you

  • To create a partition from a new or newly formatted computer, make sure Windows is installed. Load any programs and drivers you would like to keep in case you need to back up to a previous version of your computer's settings.

  • 2

    Install your partition creation software; in this article we will use Norton Ghost. Before creating your partition, disable any anti virus and other scanning software.


  • 3

    Create your partition by going to your ms-dos prompt: from your Start menu, press "Run," and type "cmd" without quotations in the run dialog box. At the dos prompt, type "fdisk" without quotations, and choose option 1 (Create DOS partition or Logical DOS Drive). Set the partition size to 10 GB at press enter.

  • 4

    Open Norton Ghost and follow the instructions to create a recovery partition in the new partition you had just created. The process should take anywhere from one to three hours, depending on the size of the files you are going to back up.

  • 5

    Restart your computer. When done, open Norton Ghost to verify that the Recovery Partition was created.

    Message missing operating system


    This sounds like the main partition on your harddrive was corrupt. You will need to reformat the system.

    Using the Recovery Partition:

    1. Press [F9] during bootup.

    2. Press [Enter] to select Windows Setup [EMS Enabled].

    3. Select the language you want to recover and click


    Next.

    4. Read the ASUS Preload Wizard messages and click


    Next.

    5. Select a partition option and click


    Next. Partition options:

    Recover Windows to first partition only.

    This option deletes only the first partition and allows you to keep other

    partitions, and to create a new system partition as drive "C".

    Recover Windows to entire HD.

    This option deletes all partitions from your hard disk drive and creates
    a new system partition as drive "C".

    Recover Windows to entire HD with two partitionThis option deletes all partitions from your hard drive and creates two
    new partitions "C" (25%) and "D" (75%).
    6. Follow the onscreen instructions to complete the recovery
    process.

    Make sure to burn off your recovery DVDs as soon as you get you rsystem back up and running so that you have them in an emergency.

    Lost NTFS partition on my WD1600BEVT, how do you restore so I can use again?


    Depends on what you did to "lose" the partition-table.

    Download the free 'PTEDIT.ZIP' file -- it is a "partition-table editor".
    UNZIP it on a different computer, and extract the 'PTEDIT.EXE' program.
    Run PTEDIT on your computer, and update the partition-table.

    I accidentally deleted all the partition when i am formatting the system partition how can i reinstall the OS now where i don't have recovery media.Is there any way to recover the deleted partition?


    You cannot recover a lost or deleted partition by simply creating it in Windows Disk Manager (this can only make things worse). To recover partitions you will need partition recovery software Today there are TONS of partition recovery software on the Internet. I am going to give a short review of such software.
    Here are some main kinds of partition recovery software:
    • It can be paid or free
    • It can run under Windows or only under DOS (usually from a boot CD)
    • It can give you the possibility to copy files off the lost partition (preferred) or just patch your hard drive (pretty much dangerous).
    • Active Partition Recovery DOS/WindowsPrice: $36Easiness to use: Average
      Safety: Average
      Allows to recover partitions or files in Demo mode: No
      Link: http://www.partition-recovery.com/price.htm
    • or with this free software TestDiskPrice: FreeEasiness to use: Not easy
      Safety: Dangerous!
      Allows to recover partitions or files in Demo mode: Yes

    • but still you can reinstall os on your drive by creating partition..(if no need to recover files)
    • during setup press c key to create partition and put size to what ever you want for C depends on your hdd size.for example your hdd is 80gb,then put size 30000 for C ,then enter
    • the remaining size is for D:scroll down D and press c key to create partion for D:then enter
    • wait till the setup finish

    How to recovery the system from recovery partition


    Did you know you only get ONE shot at creating a recovery disc? And most of the time it is garbage, just like Vista.

    He tried to put XP on it and failed? weird.

    A couple things you can do...

    1. Get your hands on a Vista disk. If you know anyone that works in IT, you can borrow a Vista disk. Do a complete fresh install. Use your "Product Key" and you will have your own Licensed, perfectly legal version of Vista.

    2. Get yourself a copy of XP. Delete all partitions, then create a new one. Don't try to save that Vista recovery partition...it's toast. I recommend XP, but I'm a dinosaur.

    If you know anyone that works in IT, you can borrow

    Have A HP 735P made recovery disks when computer was new the 1st time booted it up. Installed new hard drive. When I attempt to use the recovery disks I made from this computer I get a messege ''Recovery...


    The most likely cause of this, is that the new hard drive is not the same as the orginal. Restore media is setup to install only on OEM. Orginal Equipement. If the new hard drive is larger or smaller then the orginal it will not properly load.

    The easiest solution to this is if the new hard drive is larger, use a disk setup utility and create a partition the same size as the old drive.

    If your drive was retail the software to do this will have been in the box. If you purchased an oem drive you can download the drive setup tools from the manufacturers site.

    The drive setup utility is easy to use. Boot to it and choose setup drive. When selected it then procedes to the screen where you will need to set the size of the partition. 1024MB is 1 GB. This will help you detemine the size of the partition you need to set.

    Good luck

    Recovery partition - repair


    You have obviously deleted the partition that the laptop could recover from but usually if you are supplied a cd to recover windows, there is normally a drivers folder within the cd but not the aplications, such as anti virus although these are only for a trial period. for things like microsoft works if supplied, are normally on a seperate cd. Without knowledge of your partition software, you should be able to partition the HDD and then copy the files from one drive to another, but the restore may not work as the system files may not weave together when you come to restore. I would imagine it's only the drivers that's youre main concern, which you can install from your other laptop.
