  • rbaxta Aug 09, 2008

    I have installed a new motherboard, have the original hard drive still in it. Bascily when I start the computer up it will load windows XP then will pop up with a box that says "windows needs to be validated do you want to validate windows now?" After clicking yes the computer will restart itself and continually does this.



    I have changed the BOIS to load the CDRom first and put the 1st recovery disc in but when it boots up it just becomes and orange screen and says "This disc can only be used in an acer system E:/"



    I have no idea what to do, any suggestions would be great.

How to restore to factory settings, hp desktop pavilion 1993


There are two ways to do this. 1st. Using the recovery partition already installed on your hard drive. 2nd. Creating recovery disc by launching the recovery disc creator. It is highly recommended that when purchasing a new computer a set of recovery discs be may as a factory back up in case your hard drive fails. You should make your recovery discs first. That will require at least 3 DVD blanks. Tell you what, you make the discs first and I'll explain how to use both methods. Click your start button and find a folder called maintenance. The location and name of the folder varies by each computer manufacture as to where they file the recovery disc creator program. I believe It's in the maintenance folder. Open it and there you should find the program. Simply run the program and follow instructions. computershack.leo@gmail.com Good Luck

Error code F3-F100-0004


I suspect, you have been trying to restore to factory settings. This does appear to be a common problem with Toshiba Satellites. You should always make recovery discs if they are not supplied with the PC, a lesson you will now have learned.

You have two choices, you can either contact Toshiba and see if it is possible to purchase a set of Recovery Disks for you particular laptop. Or, you borrow (as you have already thought of) a Windows 7 OS disc. Keep in mind this disc must be the same version of Windows 7 that is written on your Product Key sticker. This will probably be stuck underneath the laptop. If you try to use a different version your product key will not work.

If you can get the discs from Toshiba this will save you the time and trouble of having to download and install all the drivers that you need for a clean install as they will be included on the discs. Hope this helps.

How to restore a toshiba satellite a135-s2286 notebook without cd?


the f8 function is only to try and remedy boot problems. the recovery option you're getting is to restore if you have already made recovery discs.
if you have a recovery partition on your hard drive you should be able to access it when you boot up. before starting your laptop press and hold 0(zero) key and power on the laptop. once it starts you should get a screen with 3 options then choose option 1 to get back to factory restore.

I was wiping the hard drive when the laptop


Please come back to us with the exact error if you get any.

However, how you are performing recovery. Using recovery manager or recovery discs?

If you are using recovery manager, please perform hard drive self test and check with the result.

Hard drive self test steps:

1. Turn Off the notebook.
2. Turn ON the notebook and keep tapping F10 key
3. Once you are in BIOS, navigate to tools/diagnostics tab with the help of left and right arrow key.
4. You will find Primary HDD self test or HDD self test.
5. With the help of up and down arrow key select the respective test and hit enter.
6. Short test will take only 4-5 minutes. However, long test may take 40-60 minutes.


If the hard drive is fine, try to perform recovery using recovery discs....

If still the problem exists try with different discs.

If the hard drive fails replace the hard drive.

Hope this will work for you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!111

Acer Aspire 3500 Lost Recovery Discs


if you are trying to recover your system using the build in partition, the key you will use is F11 at bootup...

as far as the discs, if you've already created a set with your system you can't make another. if this is the case, you can contact acer and order a set for your particular model.

if you haven't, you can make them with a program, (for acer i believe its called recovery manager?). With vista its easy to find, just start typing "recovery" in the start search bar and click on the relevant program. you can then make the discs with a few blank cds/dvds

Recovery help needed for packard bell laptop


So you are using two different XP discs with two different activation codes? That may cause problems. Anyway you are probably already formated with NTFS. So it sounds like you are trying to re-install XP? Go in set-up and choose the CD/DVD ROM drive as the first boot device then start up with the XP disc in the drive. Use the disc for the original XP that was on the computer. This may get you to a point where you can re-install.

HP MEDIA CENTER 864N Desktop PC&p RECOVERY CD


NOTE: Most HP and Compaq desktop PCs that ship with Windows Vista and XP do not come with recovery discs. Instead, they use a hidden space (partition) on the hard drive to store the recovery information. Using a hidden partition provides a convenient, more stable recovery solution.
Step 1: Create a set of recovery discs or a recovery DVD
To create the recovery disc set, Click Start , All Programs , PC Help & Tools (or similar), open the HP or Compaq Recovery CD-DVD Creation software, and follow the on-screen directions.
If you cannot create recovery discs or your discs have become damaged, continue to the next step.
Step 2: Order recovery CDs on the Web
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.
Go to the Software & Driver Downloads page .
Enter the product number or model name for your computer into the field provided.
Figure 1: Product name/number field

Click the operating system link (the version of Windows that came with your computer).
Figure 2: Example of operating system link

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
7640107.gif
Follow the directions from the "Read this...” article and from the ordering pages to complete the ordering process.
NOTE: The ordering pages use a secure connection to protect your privacy.
If you cannot create a recovery disc set and you cannot order a recovery disc set from HP, go to the next step.
Step 3: Contact Support
If you have tried the steps 1 and 2 and could not create or obtain a recovery disc set, contact HP Customer Care . HP Customer Care may be able to send out new discs or replace defective versions depending on your situation and availability.
