Hi,

If it is windows xp then the recovery option will be under pc help and tools ,this you can get it by clicking on start ???all programs ???pc help and tools.However if you are not able to find this option then simply turn the computer off and then disconnect all the external devices along with the internet cable and then as soon as you turn the computer on tap the f10 key repeatedly and then when you get the recovery page click on ok .Once you get the page where it has the advance option click on it and then select destructive recovery and then click next the recovery will start .

If you have windows vista then go to start and in the search bar type recovery manager and then click on it to start the recovery else instead of the f10 key tap the f11 key and then follow the same instruction as for the XP OPERATING SYSTEM.

Hope this helps you ,all the best

An old seagate medalist 4321 is connected to my external caddy. BUT cannot access it. cannot see its icon anywhere, though system claims it is working OK. My XP Home is updated, computer working...


If the drive can be seen by device manager but not under MyComputer, right click my computer and go to "Manage". (Check out: rightclicking my computer icon on your desktop, select disk manager)
You should see your hard drive either lister as foreign or not initialized. Ifforeign, it will give you an option to import and is not initialized, it willallow you to initialize it.
This will hand over drive management to the OS and you should be able to see itin My Computer.
Have you ever worried about hard drivedata recovery? Here is the solution: You can recover harddrive data withdata recovery software like Tenorshare DataRecovery. It can recover data after deeply scanning your hard drive to look forlost data. You can get it from: http://www.any-data-recovery.com/index.htm

I have lenovo ideapad s10-2 it start normaly but it will remaining please wait can you help me


Hi,

I believe you're having problem with the Operating System on your computer. Unfortunately, Lenovo will not provide a product key for the Operating System since the an OEM version. What you can do is reinstall the Operating System using the One Key Recovery Sofware or the Recovery Disc that came with the computer. Follow these steps for you to be able to reinstall the Operating System using the One Key Recovery.

1. Turn off the computer.

2. Press the little button near the power button, it usually do have a drawing of an icon that looks like a horse shoe or a headset.

3. There will be a window that will appear which do have three option, One Key Antivirus, One Key Recovery and System Setup. Choose One key Recovery.

4. There will be another window that will appear which do have two option, Restore from initial backup and Restore from user backup,Choose Restore from initial back up

5. It will asked you if you want to continue, Just click on OK or YES.

6. Once done, Reboot the computer.


Hope this information will help. Thank you for using FixYa!

I have an ibm that i would like bring back to factory status


hello hershyhunk to fully restore a PC to factory settings/defaults you will need to reinstall the operating system. to do this you need your recovery disks that came with your computer.
WARNING!! All of the data on your laptop's hard drive will be permanently erased when you restore it to its original settings. Before starting the restore process you may want to save any data you still need to an external drive such as a USB flash storage device.
Depending on the specific brand and model of your laptop you may need to select different options to restore the computer to its original settings. Check the manual that came with your laptop to find the specific menu options you need to select. Some computer manufacturers include an icon in the Start menu for restoring the laptop to its original settings without having to use a separate recovery disk. Double-click the icon and follow the instructions on the screen to start the restore process.
  1. Place the operating system recovery CD that came with your computer into the CD or DVD drive. Restart the computer.
  2. Wait for the computer manufacturer's logo to pop up on the screen. Press the keyboard key that brings up the recovery menu, which is usually "F2," "F8," or "Ctrl" and "F11" pressed simultaneously.
  3. Select the specific language you want the operating system to use from the menu at the top of the screen. Select "Next."
  4. Choose the option labeled "PC Restore," "Repair Your Computer" or something similar. Click "Next."
  5. Select "Restore" and then click "Enter" to start the process. Click "Restart" once the process has ended to boot the restored computer to its operating system.
