Lg smart recovery


Resizing the partitions has affected the partition size of the hidden recovery partition. This is why the recovery does not work.
You need to get a Recovery CD for your model LG laptop from the LG WEB site so you can restore your laptop.
You maybe able to download the recovery CD from this site : -

How to perform an eMachine Factory Restore


Back up all of your photos, documents, folders, files, favorites (bookmarks) and anything else you would like to keep and reinstall after the system recovery. Use a CD, DVD, flash drive, MP3 or external hard drive to store your data temporarily.
Click on the "System Recovery" icon (usually found within the start menu) and begin the process by following the on-screen prompts.
Click on "restore" and note the warnings about losing all of your data. Wait for the computer to complete the process of erasing the hard drive and creating a new partition.
Insert the emachines recovery disk in the CD tray when prompted. This will start the process. There are usually one or two disks involved and the computer will let you know which ones to insert when and will even eject the tray automatically in most cases. You may have to restart at least three times, do not be alarmed by this and keep the disk in until you are prompted otherwise. do-emachines-system-recovery--1.5-120x120.jpg
Example of Windows Installation Install Windows on the new partition and follow the prompts on your screen. Be sure to choose the largest partition, the one with the most kb available. There are usually two to choose from, as you have deleted the other ones in the steps prior.
Reinstall all of your backed up data and any software programs you are currently using, including the printer and Internet, if needed. Be sure all of your drivers and hardware is working properly, as they have been reinstalled as well during the recovery process.

I want to recover my computer to factory settings


As soon as you press the power button on your notebook, Keep tapping F8 repeatedly. Another screen should pop up with a list of commands (safe mode / start up repair etc) Near the bottom of the list you should see an option to ReInstall windows / Reset to factory Default. Select which one you prefer and follow the simple instructions.

Hope this helps and please rate thanks.

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.

Where can i buy a recovery CD for my Acer Extensa


This recovery process helps you restore the C: drive with the original software
content that is installed when you purchase your notebook. Follow the steps
below to rebuild your C: drive. (Your C: drive will be reformatted and all data
will be erased.) It is important to back up all data files before using this option.
Before performing a restore operation, please check the BIOS settings.
1 Check to see if Acer disk-to-disk recovery is enabled or not.
2 Make sure the D2D Recovery setting in Main is Enabled.
3 Exit the BIOS utility and save changes. The system will reboot.
Note: To activate the BIOS utility, press <F2> during POST.

To start the recovery process:
1 Restart the system.
2 While the Acer logo is showing, press <Alt> + <F10> at the same time to
enter the recovery process.
3 Refer to the onscreen instructions to perform system recovery.
Important! This feature occupies 10 GB in a hidden partition on
your hard disk.

My aspire notebook want to reformat but theres no cd or dvd drive on it


It should be a recovery partition on your hard disk. Try this :

Turn on your laptop. On boot, press <F2> to enter BIOS. To enable disk-to-disk recovery (hard disk recovery), activate the BIOS utility, then select Main from the categories listed at the top of the screen. Find D2D Recovery at the bottom of the screen and use the <F5> and <F6> keys to set this value to Enabled. Save and reboot. While the Acer logo is shown, press <Alt> + <F10> at the same time to enter the recovery process. Refer to the onscreen instructions to perform system recovery.
You could miss this process, if it is so try again.

If there is no recovery partition on the hard drive you need a CD revovery kit for your model. Contact Acer support team and ask for it. If you are lucky you will get one for free or you will pay a very affordable price (10-20$). If not, try to find a friend that has the same version of Windows as yours and you can use it with your activation key (you find it on a label on the bottom of the laptop).Also, you have to purchase an external (USB) optical drive (CDROM/DVDROM)

Second hard drive


generally, its not a second driver your seeing , it is a seperate partition on your ONE drive set aside for holdingyour recovery files incase you need to reinstall all your software back to factory settings of when it was new. The only way to access this drive is through the recovery process, otherwise its protected so not to get messed up.
Hope this answers your question. Please post again if I misunderstood your request..
