Do you have a recovery partition on your hard drive?

To check this, click on start - control panel - Administrative Tools - computer management - Disk Management -
You should see a Disk 0 with one partition, if you have more than one it could be split in two parts, but what you are looking for is a recovery partition.

So, if you have a recovery partition, there should be a way of starting the recovery process. I would go to the HP website and download the manual for your computer. It should have the recovery information there.

Where do I purchase os x mountain lion rebootable cd or complete disc


Lion, Mountain Lion, and Mavericks (10.7, 10.8, and 10.9 respectively) do not come on a physical CD or DVD. They are downloaded and installed through the Mac App Store.

After installing 10.7 or later, a 'hidden' partition is created on your computer that serves the same function as the physical discs did in earlier versions of OS X (10.6 and earlier), giving you access to Disk Utility, Install OS X, Get Help Online, and other functions that previously were accessed from a physical disc.
If for some reason the hard drive is damaged or the Recovery Partition is otherwise inaccessible, you can access the same utilities over the internet using Internet Recovery.

One can, however, create a bootable flash drive as a physical backup of your Recovery Partition using Recovery Disk Assistant.

All the information on how to access Recovery Partition, Internet Recovery, and Recovery Disk Assistant are available from the following articles:

You might have another part that has gone bad. Check the RAM and see if it gives you any problems.

There is a program call mem test that you can burn to a CD and test your memory. But if your no longer able to get to the bios:

I have a toshiba psaa8u-1l502k and i need to reboot the OS, i have no disc, looking for a function shortcut key or something.. thanks


Hi,
I don't know if your machine supports HDD recovery from a hidden partition but this how you perform it without recovery CD's.


Make sure the computer is turned off.

Hold down the 0 (zero) key while powering up the laptop. When the computer powers up the Toshiba Recovery Wizard should appear.

Just follow the on-screen instructions to factory or out of the box restore.

Regards.

Rebooting my Dell Inspiron 6000 Laptop


rebooting a laptop means turning it off then on again not to it's original state, your are using a recovery disc which will reformat your drive the reinstall windows, loosing any documents or files you have saved.

The serial or product key code for windows is always on the underside of the laptop
