    what's the operating system of your computer?

    if you're using windows XP, how did you partition your harddrive, basic or dynamic?

    do you have files on both partitions?

If you do not want to lose your data and make a single drive then the best option would be to buy Partition Magic software.

It works like a charm. I would also suggest to take the backup of the partitions before running Partition Magic (just to be on the safer side).

Let m know hat happens.

Emachines et1331g 05w


Emachine website is Download Center ALL Products No BIOs update for it is listed for the 3TB problem. But back in the days of the 1 Gig problem, we would just make different partitions to get around the problem. Might work as well here. If you installing a new harddrive do a clone of your old one. It will make a copy of all your current harddrive info and layout onto the 3TB drive. Just larger partitions if you need help on doing this just ask and give the brand and model. So I can look up the software from the manufacturer. Also state one brand of the old drive.

One Key Recovery is not working and can not find the hide original. All System - Recovery-Points also lost.Please help me!


Welcome to Fixya

Someone might have messed up your harddrive that is why one key recovery is already gone. Hidden harddrive partition will be erased if you installed new windows or repartiotion the harddrive. If you are going to restore the computer back to factory default state, you need to order the disc, If you still wanted to have the hidden partition back to your computer, you need to contact lenovo and send in the computer to repair department for HD re-imaging.

Thank you for using Fixya!

I need to reinstall windows 7 and I was told to fdisk the hard drive on my laptop to do a clean install. If I need to do this can you tell me how to fdisk a laptop hared drive


Before you get into all of this ... try to restore your computer to an earlier date ... if that doesnt work, most manufacturers have the original software for the computer on a special section of the hard disk, called a 'restore' ... try those before you get into the fDisk business. Otherwise you will soon be way over your head ... This process is for someone who has experience in the process. Belive me when I tell you fDisk is not your first and best alternative.

80gb harddrive that only says it has 34gb


Using a program like Parition Magic would allow you to adjust the partition size of your current partitions. It is possible that Compaq has used some ot the hard drive space for its recovery and restoration software. You could combine the current partitions into one larger partition. It is also possible that another partition exists using a Linux or other non windows operating system.

Reformating my gateway E 4100


reformatting a drive is a big undertaking, formating the drive will erase everything, including viruses, before you format you need to make sure you have all the discs including the windows disc, driver discs, and a factory restore disc, also you make check the documentation on your system because alot of the gaetway, dell, emachines systems have restore partitions installed on the drive. Also youll need alot of coffee and alot of time, most importantly aside from the windows disc youll need a driver disc for any ethernet or wireless card you have installed. without this you will not have access to the internet most likely and donloading updated drivers is very helpful. This is a time consuming proccess unless there is a restore partition on the harddrive, the documentation will tell you how toaccess it if it exists, if not a restore disc will be nice.

I installed Paragon Partition Manager and set up boot manager. It said to restart my computer and I did. Now there is a boot screen that only shows one partition it says XP and the right side says boot...


If I were you I would pull the harddrive out, slave it to another machine and save all your documents before putting your harddrive back in and doing a full Dell restore.
Any wrong move at this point is likely to damage the MBR and render your machine unable to boot up at all.
