Trying to restore back to factory settings


System Recovery
When you've tried other methods of repairing your
system software (like System Restore or Application
Recovery), you may want to use the Compaq System
Recovery program as a last resort to reinstall the software.
When necessary, you can reinstall the operating system and
the application software that was originally installed on the
PC at the factory by using the System Recovery program.
WARNING: The Compaq System Recovery
program will delete any data or programs
that you installed after purchase. Be sure to
back up any data that you want to keep onto
a removable disc.
The System Recovery program uses a special recovery
partition on the hard disk drive that stores an image of the
original software.
NOTE: The System Recovery image is in a partition area
of the hard disk drive and takes up part of the total drive
space. This disk space is not usually available for your use.
In the unlikely event that you replace the hard disk drive,
or somehow damage the data in the special recovery
partition on the hard disk drive, use recovery discs to
reinstall the operating system and software on the hard disk
drive. See "System Recovery Using Recovery Discs."
Make your own recovery discs (CDs or DVDs) before you
need them; see "Creating Recovery CDs/DVDs." You can
also make the Recovery Tools CD. This CD contains utilities
that allow you to make changes to your hard disk drive; see
"Using the Recovery Tools CD."
Starting System Recovery
if the PC Is Responding
1 Turn off the PC. Disconnect all peripheral devices from
the PC except the monitor, the keyboard, and the mouse.
Turn on the PC.
2 Click Start on the taskbar, choose All Programs,
choose PC Help & Tools, and then click Compaq
System Recovery.
3 Wait until the System Recovery window appears asking
Do you really want to start System Recovery?
4 Click Yes to continue with the recovery process. If you
created recovery discs, you may be directed to insert
recovery disc #1. If the Recovery disc is a DVD, be sure
to put the disc in a DVD drive.
5 The PC starts the recovery; wait for the onscreen
instructions to display, and then follow those instructions.
6 Complete the PC startup, finish the registration process,
and wait until you see the desktop. Then, turn off the PC,
reconnect all peripheral devices, and then turn on the PC.
Starting System Recovery if the PC
Is Not Responding
1 Turn off the PC. If necessary, press and hold the On
button until the PC turns off.
2 Disconnect all peripheral devices from the PC except the
monitor, the keyboard, and the mouse.
3 Press the On button to turn on the PC.
4 During the startup, do the following to enter the System
Recovery program:
When the black screen with the Compaq logo appears,
press the F10 key on the keyboard. (You have only a few
seconds to press the F10 key before the normal startup
process continues.)
5 The PC starts the recovery; wait for the onscreen
instructions to display, and then follow those instructions.
6 Complete the PC startup, finish the registration process,
and wait until you see the desktop. Then, turn off the PC,
reconnect all peripheral devices, and turn on the PC.

My gateway laptop won't reboot after system recovery


I would put in a Windows disc and see if that prompts windows to start and/or reinstall. Actually, can you send me the recovery disc via download? I am trying to fix my old laptop and cannot find the discs. lilly.murphy@yahoo.com Thanks much!

I need to wipe my laptop so i inserted my recovery disc which i burnt off when i bought the pc and it read the disc as blank, i checked in another pc and that shows it as blank too, is there any other way...


When you purchase a laptop you are essentially buying the Windows product for that computer. Unlike tge good old days where computers came with recovery disks, they now come with software to make them yourself. Fortunately, Compaq is good about sending you one if you need it. Contact tech support with your Serial number and ask for a set of recovery disks for your model.

Cant access system recocery


If you can find the operating system disc you should try reinstalling that. If that is the disc you are missing you can borrow one from someone and still use the key that is taped to the side of the desktop.
Insert the OS disc on startup and when prompted to "press any key to boot from CD" do so. If you are not prompted you will need to enter your BIOS and change your boot priority in the boot menu to boot from CD-ROM first.
Once the PC boots from the windows disc proceed through the menu until asked to run a repair. This will install a fresh copy of the windows files on your PC. It asks you if you would like to keep the old ones and just rename the folder just in case you still need them.
This will not remove any documents or personal files, it will only reinstall the operating system files that may have become corrupted.

New Hard Drive, system recovery problem


The systems disc is for the drivers and utilities, and, yes, there should have been two discs with the machine. The A45 is new enough that it should have come with an XP disc, not 98. I believe there was a mix up and you have the wrong disc. If you can get the operating system to load with the recovery disc you have, then you can get the drivers at the link below. Some two disc sets will not load an operational system unless you have both discs. Since you were running XP before, I don't think you're going to be happy with 98. I'm going to suggest that you purchase an XP disc, or contact Toshiba, and let them know that the wrong disc came with the machine, they might send you the right disc. If you do have to purchase an XP disc, simply load the system, then go to the link bellow and download the drivers. If you need any further assistance, feel free to ask.

Computer virus ruined my tower, hp pavillion s7320n, prod. #:EP140AA. I need a recovery disk? Drivers disk? And a lot of technical help. Marco


If you are not able to create a set of recovery discs, you may be able to order a set of replacement discs from HP. HP maintains a stock of replacement recovery discs for several years after the product has been released. However, because of licensing restrictions, HP is only able to provide these recovery discs for a limited time. If your computer is several years past its warranty period, HP may not be able to supply replacement discs for your computer. If this is the case, you can install a new operating system that meets the minimum system requirements of your computer, or, alternatively, upgrade your computer hardware. To find out if HP has recovery discs that you can order and to order them from HP, use the following steps:
NOTE: The steps in this section apply to United States and Canada . For Europe, Middle East, and Africa please refer to the HP support document Europe, Middle East, and Africa - Statement on the Availability of the Recovery Software on CD . For other countries/regions, contact your local HP support center for information about obtaining recovery CDs.
  1. Go to the Software & Driver Downloads page .
  2. Enter the product number or model name for your computer into the field provided. Figure 1: Product name/number field c00772934.gif
  3. Click the operating system link (the version of Windows that came with your computer). Figure 2: Example of operating system link c00772003.gif
  4. Find the Recovery Disc ordering section and click the link to start the ordering process.
    NOTE: Before trying to order, make sure that you have read the important "Read this..." information listed in this Recover Disc ordering section.
    NOTE: If the link to order a recovery disc set is not available , there may not be any more sets available for purchase. HP cannot create recovery discs that contain a version of Windows that has been obsoleted by Microsoft, such as Windows 95, 98, and Me. Some recovery disc sets may have run out of stock and may not be available to order. Figure 3: Recovery disc ordering links c00772004.gif
  5. Follow the directions from the "Read this.." article and from the ordering pages to complete the ordering process.

Need to do system recovery on philips freevent x53 problem damaged recovery disk


best not to use a recovery disc as they will erase alot of info, see if you can find a windows disc and use your code off your sticker, when you insert the disc, it will ask if you want to go to recovery mode, say no, go to fresh install and when it says you already have windows ask it to fix the current install, 90% of the time this works
