If the main issue is missing drivers you can either download those directly from HP or use a program like Fresh Diagnostics or Aida32 to identify each piece of hardware on the system and then go to each manufacturer's website and download the drivers specific to the hardware.

Missing Operating System on D: partition Bootup


Follow the steps from this site http://www.wikihow.com/Change-the-Active-Partition-of-Your-Hard-Disk-with-Parted-Magic. When you changed the active partition you told the computer to look for information from the wrong partition. Using the program from that site will allow you to make the other partition active again. You'll then be able to boot into Windows again. As far as making backup discs, I believe you hit F11 while booting to access the recovery partition. From there you can make your recovery discs. Not 100 percent sure on that though. And you will need to get the windows partition set back as active first.

I just restarted my HP and now it says there is no hard drive and I dont have a recovery disk


try disconnecting the drive and reseating it first.

If you enter the bios (f10 on startup) does the computer even detect the drive? If not - try reseating it - don't forget to power off first

Failing that try the hp recovery partition
1
Press the power button to start the HP. Press and hold the F11 key to launch the HP Recovery Manager from the recovery partition.
2
Backup any files you want to save. Follow the HP Recovery Manager instructions to save any important files before continuing with the recovery process.
3
Continue the recovery process. After backing up files to an external device or CD/DVDs, select the option to perform a system recovery.
4
Obtain and install updates for the HP. After your system reboots, use HP update manager as well as Windows update to restore all critical updates to your HP computer.
5
Make a set of recovery disks. Use HP Recovery Manager and select "Advanced Options" to create a set of recovery disks that can be used in the event that your HP cannot access the hard drive.

How do i reset my hp computer back to the way i bought it?


factory settings could mean performing a system restore to a previous state of the OS. I'll try to explain how you can perform each one of these methods in the article below.
Restore Factory Settings - System Restore System Restore is the in-built tool of Windows XP and Windows Vista that allows you to roll back the registry to a previous state. Note that it only "restores" previous settings for the registry and Windows system files.
You can use system restore to get rid of spyware, but if system restore does not fix your problem, you'll have to resort to either a clean install of the OS or using your recovery CD/DVDs.
You can read my previous post on how to restore your computer using the System Restore feature. If system restore is disabled, you can read my post on how to enable system restore again.

Restore Factory Settings - Recovery CD/DVDs Most computers come with either a recovery CD/DVD or a recovery partition that is hidden on the computer. This is true for most HP and Dell machines now these days.
If you have one of these, you can access the recovery from within Windows or during startup.
For HP, you can go to Start, All Programs, HP Tools, and then choose HP PC System Recovery.
hprecoverymanager-thumb.png
You can also press the F10 key multiple times during bootup to get access to the recovery console in case Windows is not loading properly.
On Dells, you can access the recovery partition by pressing Ctrl + F11 immediately after the machine is turned on.
Note that all of your data will be lost on the hard drive. Using a recovery CD is not the same as repairing XP. When you repair Windows XP, all of the system files are replaced with the original ones, but your data and applications remain intact.
Restore Factory Settings - Clean Install XP Your last and final option for restoring XP to factory settings is to perform a clean install. This requires having the CD/DVD for the OS. If you only have a hidden recovery partition, you will not be able to perform a clean install.
A clean install basically consists of booting from the original XP CD, deleting all partitions, recreating new partitions, and then installing Windows XP from CD.
It's a fairly straight-forward process and you can read this excellent tutorial for step by step instructions. Again, it's important to note that you will lose all your data in this process.

I bought hp laptop pre-installed with windows 7. There are partition as C(200gp) and D(25gb).Now i need more partition of size 100gb so i need to reinstall windows 7.They didnot provide windows 7 CD. how...


Usually, pre-loaded hp laptops have an utility to create (only once) recovery disks. U will need a few high quality DVDs or up to 20 CDs. The laptop must be connected to AC power during this process. The how-to is in Ur documentation that came with the laptop (probably in some pdf document). Usually, the procedure to create set of recovery discs is as follows (maybe it changes according to model): 1. Select Start > All Programs > Recovery Manager > Recovery Manager. Recovery Manager Opens. 2. Click Advanced Options. 3. Click Recovery disc creation, and then click Next. 4. Follow the on-screen instructions.
Pls, send the laptop exact model, so I'll be able to verify this procedure.
BTW, did U considered use of some partition manager to resize the partition?

Hi there .I would like to help my friend use the recovery partition on her compaq presario c700 laptop to either use her recovery dvds or simply to reformat(restore the computer to original factory...


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.

How do u d0 a facrory restore on an acer 9500


Hi,

Start the computer, once the ACER logo appears, simultaneously press ALT + F10 to start the restore utility and follow the on-screen instructions.


If you don't have a recovery partition then you will need to use the recovery disks that you may have got when you first got the laptop.

I am unable to repair the windows as some of the files got miss, my security centre is also in off stage only. unable to turn on it. how to resume recovery manager in its original state


Did your PC come with recovery CDs? If not, did you back up your recovery partition to DVDs/CDs when you purchased the PC? If your answer is no to both, then your only option is to use the recovery manager to recover from the recovery partition in your hard drive. The only snag here is that if the initial problem was due to virus, this recovery partition will most likely have been infected with the virus/viruses and may not work well again. But if you have your DVDsCDs then you are home and dry. Just slot in the recovery DVD/CD and restart the system and simply follow the onscreen instructions. Really, it is a piece of cake.

Acer 5050


by default acer 5050 have 3 partitions
1. OS partition (C)
2. Data (D)
3. Recovery partition (hidden).

If you deleted recovery parition, you can't recover your C parition using Alt+F10. Your only option is recovery from cd/DVD recovery that you created. if you didn't create the cd/dvd, you can call acer support to buy the recovery dvd.
