You cannot format your pc without the disk unless you remove the hdd and install it in another computer and format it from there

I'm looking for a recovery disk for my MSI ms-1013 notebook.


unless you made one or you were provided with an installation disk

Turn Off the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding "Alt" key & keep on tapping "F10 key,ie: Alt+F10, it will open the recovery console ,select full factory restore and follow on screen instruction. (Note:this will erase all datas on the computer)
or

Note: The Microsoft Windows XP CD is a bootable CD and in many cases you should not need a bootable floppy diskette. Booting from the Windows XP CD will allow you to not only install/re-install Windows XP but will also allow you to troubleshoot it.

Create MS-DOS bootable diskette

When formatting a floppy diskette, users have the option of creating a MS-DOS startup disk, follow the below steps to do this.

1. Place diskette in the computer.

2. Open My Computer, right-click the A: drive and click Format.

3. In the Format window, check Create an MS-DOS startup disk.

4. Click Start

Create Windows XP Setup diskettes

Microsoft is beginning to phase out bootable floppy diskettes in favor of bootable CD discs and has not included a method of easily creating a bootable floppy diskette in Windows XP or from the CD. However, Microsoft has downloads available for users who still need to create bootable diskettes to install (not upgrade) Windows XP. These downloads can be found through KB310994.

hope this helps you

Model no. HP DT DX 7480. I do not have CD received at the time purchasing the sysytem. Now the it is not booting to rectify the currupted system.


If your computer was not supplied with a Windows CD then mostlikely the hard disk on your computer has a recovery partition on the hard driveand you can restore your computer back to the condition when you first purchasedthe computer using this recovery partition.
HP can also supply a recovery CD for your model computer if you request one.This is needed when the hard disk has failed.
Read your computer documentation for the instruction on the restore procedure.You also get this information from HP's WEB site.

How do I recover a deleted file from the Olympus WS-500M? I have not recorded over these files as of yet.


First of all, do not save any new file to camera's memory card.

Take out memory card, and connect it to computer using a card reader. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in Windows Explorer.
Find how to recover deleted files from camera from
http://www.asoftech.com/recover/
Install and open the photo recovery software, select the memory card, and click 'Start' button.

How do i restore my hp pavilion dv 5000 to factort setting?


There should have been a recovery disk created or included when you bought a laptop. Insert disk if you have it and restart your computer with the recovery disk in the CD drive. Make sure all your documents and personal data are backed up. When the computer restarts it should start restoring your computer to the factory default. There will be a wizard to guide you through the process.
If there is no disk or got lost,then follow this steps:
1.Save any files or folders on your computer with flash drives. Drag and drop files onto the icon of your flash drive.
2.Go to "Start" > "Restart" to reboot your netbook.
3.Hold down "Alt" and "F10" when you see the logo on the screen. The recovery menu will load.
4.Hit "Enter" and then "Next" to see your recovery options. Choose "Factory Restore" to set your computer back to factory settings. Follow the instructions on the screen.
5.Choose your time zone and language when the customization menu appears. Reboot when you are prompted.
6.Restore your saved files from the flash drive.

hope this helps,Goodluck..pls response with your rate and testimonials below for further issues..thanks

How can I format my Sony vaio laptop vgn-nw13gh with my recovery disk please show me the steps


You will need a FULL WinXP system disk (asume your system is Win) either buy a new XP CD (i doubt you will get it)
but.....
to get a pirated WinXP system disk click the foll link....before that downlaod a software called UTorrent or BitTottent....google it
the foll link will downlaod the link file of Torrent and that will help you download the full version.....believe me this works....700MB ISO file...burn on CD/DVd using any CD burner software like Nero....

http://thepiratebay.org/details.php?id=3493182
once you download the full OS from piratebay...make a CD/DVD from the ISO image file that is obtained from piratebay....boot you system using that CD....BIOS in your system must be reset to boot from CD as the 1st boot seq in BIOS....

recovery disk will not work....

On turning on my computer I get the HP screen with three options at the bottom Boot menu Startup menu System recovery When choosing the boot menu or startup menu the computer fails to bring up these...


The hard disk inside the computer had failed and must be replaced.
Since your system had an recovery partition and not a separate recovery disk you must contact HP and order a separate recovery disk. If you have a friend with the exact model of c then you can use its disk, but only if its the EXACT same model.
 This is a very big problem - and at least a basic knowledge of hardware is required to replace the failed hard disk. And some software experience is also needed to reinstall.

Gigabyte motherboard cd


You do not not need your motherboard CD to preform a format on your drive. Any windows CD. Win XP home, XP Pro, Win 2000 will format your hard drive. You can also use the hard drive's Mfg's utility disks & creat a bootable floppy disk or creat a bootable CDROM disk that will not only allow you to format the hard drive but also fun testing on the drive. You can even pick your cluster size & FAT file. Write down the name of your drive & model no#. Go to the Mfg's web site & download the utility software. Chances are Windows will have most of your boards drivers in it's data base. All you'll need to do is download from Gigabyte your missing drivers. You'll need you complete model no# & version no# if you can find it.
