Hi! Is your disk drive working with other cds? If it is, then the problem will be on the recovery disc itself. Try cleaning the disc for dirt and thumbmarks can cause it to be unreadable. If the cd has scratches then it's a probable cause but I suggest that you run a cd lens cleaner to clean the optical lens. If still no luck on this then you will need to purchase a new recovery disc or download one via internet. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

My computer, a lenovo y510 laptop malfunctioned. After inserting the recovery, and attempting to boot from the disk, the screen simply goes blank instead of opening the normal vista install center.


Hi lightning_ha,

Based on your situation, I suggest trying the following steps:

1. Turn on the system then insert the recovery disk inside the ODD.

2. Now turn off the computer while recovery disk is inside.

3. Turn on the computer, the moment you press the power button, immediately tap the F12 key and press it continuously.

4. Now you have the boot option. Select CD/DVD/ODD by pressing enter then continuously tap it until you see the Windows is loading a file.

5. Wait until it goes 100%.

6. Now it will ask you on what partition you will put the operating system. Just select the partition that has a large capacity or size.

7. Just wait until it completes the whole installation.

8. Restart the computer.

Hope it helps,

Thank you for using FixYa.

HOW TO REPAIR MISSING OR DAMAGE FILES

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS APPLY TO BOTH LAPTOP AND DESKTOP COMPUTERS.

Hi there if your computer has missing files or a file is corrupt and you need to repair the damage file, you can do this by using a recovery disk for the computer if you have one. If you do not have a recovery disk for the computer you can use the operating system disk to repair it, please follow these steps: insert the operating system disk into the CD/DVD drive, restart the computer, press F12 and choose boot from CD save and exit. While the computer is loading it will ask you to press any key to boot from CD, so you will press any key, a blue screen will appear while its loading, when it get to the first set of options you will press enter to continue. when it get to the second set of options it will ask you to install the operating system or repair it, choose repair and follow the steps from there, once you choose repair, the computer will go through different stages. The next step is to enter the keys for the operating system the computer will continue until it finish the repairs and this should solve the problem of missing files. But you should backup your files before doing this even though no files should be lost but its better to backup just in case something goes wrong. Backing up the file is always an important part of having a computer, you should also create a recovery CD and this can be done during the process of backing up your computer files. The back up files should be store on one or more DVDs or other storage device and this along with the recovery CD should be store in a safe and dry place. The purpose of the recovery CD is to repair damage or missing files on the computer and each computer require its own back up and recovery disk to repair the problem.

The only thing to try now, is to get a Windows install DVD, put DVD in drive and boot from the DVD, then try to install with that, when you get to installing and it asks if you want to Format, do so, format Full NTFS. Then try to proceed to installing. If this too fails then you will need to replace your hard Drive, quite a simple matter.

Ran the Tshibery disk recovery disk. Completed and


Complete the recovery again but leave the discs in the computer. That way if the computer needs some files while rebooting it will take them off the cd....if not it will load and that will be the end of that. Just remember when you boot the computer for the first time to initiate the recovery, when it says to boot from cd touch any key...that is only done one time when you first initiate the recovery...after that do not touch any key if it says that...just let windows boot on it own. Once windows boots on its own, then you can take the recovery disc out and put it away.

My 0xc000000c "Restore Failed" prompt seemed to be the result of disk surface damage on the restore disk. After burning the restore disk to a new disk, the restore proceeded normally. Try making a copy of the original restore disk to a known good blank disk.

Can't install disk 2 for photo explosion deluxe 3.0


Does it appear to be loading anything from the sisk or does it just turn the access light on and do nothing? It could be the second disk is damaged. Check the back side of the disk for a fingerprint mark or scrathches. clean off the priint and try again.
Does the disk read ok in File Explorer, try opening a file and see if it can at least access the disk dont matter if it cantb open the file because it doiesnt have a program that can open it, you are just checking the readability!

You can do the sytem recovery by loading the first disk then turn your NB off. Please hold down F12 after power on then select CD/DVD drive then Windows will be loading files. Select the first options for each prompt. You will be asked for the second disk later. Plug in ac adapter since it will take around an hour. Hope this helps.
