1st try last known good configuration

if that doesn't work

then get the setup cd. start the setup and press r or enter repair console when asked. it asks for your password, login, then run chkdsk make sure it does the check even if it says the disk is marked clean. I dont remember which switch it was you can see them with chkdsk /?

Do that and try starting windows again.

If that failes do a repair install from the windows setup.

How do use Verbatim to back up files


Which operating system ?

Determine how much space you need. The first step in backing up your hard drive is to figure out how much space you will need to back up all of your files. You can do this in a couple of ways. Find out how large the hard drive is on your computer first to see if you can back up the whole thing. Click on "My Computer," right-click the "C" drive and select "Properties." This shows the approximate of your hard drive, how much space is actually taken, plus the space used by your operating system. If your hard drive is manageable (the space actually taken), back up the whole thing. Your second option is to create a file called "Backup" and copy all of your important files into it. Right-click on the folder once everything is copied over and choose "Properties" to find out the of the folder. This is how much space you will need to back up your important files only. Choose a backup method. Choose either an external hard drive, data disks (CDs, for example) or use an online backup service. Plug the flash drive or the External Hard drive into your computer's rectangular-shaped USB drive. Wait for Windows to recognize the system. Windows operating systems use "plug and play" technology, which means that computer peripherals like USB flash drives can be recognized instantly by the system without further need for device configuration. Open the drive on your computer. Open the "My Computer" directory if using Windows XP or the "Computer" directory if using Windows 7 or Vista. Locate the flash drive letter and icon under the section named "Devices with Removable Storage." Double-click the flash drive icon to open it. Transfer files to the flash drive. Click the "Restore" button in the top-right corner of the "Computer" or "My Computer" directory to shrink the window so that you can view your computer's desktop background. Open the folders or locations of the files which you want to save to the flash drive. Click and drag with your mouse each of the files and folders you want to save to the flash drive over to the empty space in the "My Computer" or "Computer" window. Release the mouse button to let the files "drop." Close the windows and directory locations when finished. Save files directly onto the flash drive. From an open file (i.e. text, spreadsheet, image files. etc.), click the "File" menu and "Save as" option. Select the "My Computer" or "Computer" directory in the drop-down menu at the top of the "Save As" box. Double-click the flash drive letter under the "Devices with Removable Storage" section. Click the "Save" button to save the file onto the flash drive. Close the windows and files when finished

Can't find back-up folder


You might have to create a folder you can do this by right clicking in the backup destination drive selecting new folder and name it lets say Back Up 2012 for the excercise.

The first step in backing up your hard drive is to figure out how much space you will need to back up all of your files.


You can do this in a couple of ways.

If your hard drive size is manageable (the space actually taken), back up the whole thing.

Your second option is to create a file called "Backup" and copy all of your important files into it.


Right-click on the folder once everything is copied over and choose "Properties" to find out the size of the folder.

Does storing a lot of pictures on my PC cause it to run slower?


It could, depending on how large your hard drive is. Side note, if these are important, back them up so you won't lose them.
One way to save space is to put your hard drive in a compress mode.
Go to start, computer, select the hard drive, right click then under properties click the box that says "compress to save space". It will save space and also help it run faster.

Can I increase disk space for Presario F762NR notebook? And if so..how. Thank-you


You can compress the disk and gain a little room which might meet your needs, otherwise you can buy a new disk and install it. I have cloned many laptop disk drives onto new ones. It does take some special cables and and a desktop computer to do however.

Before I do either, I'd try a disk clean up. Turn system restore off then back on to delete all the SR files. Down load CCleaner and run it against the disk and run the registry cleaner.
http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download

Disable Hibernation and delete Hiberfil.sys, if the space problem is critical on your System Drive. Its a hidden file on the root directory of your system drive. Open Control Panel. Type Hibernate in the search bar. Select turn Hibernate On / Off.

If you want to try the compress, double click My Computer, right click on the C:\drive, PROPERTIES, check Compress this drive.. This will take awhile so don't turn off the computer or let it shut down. Some say you should not compress the windows folder but I've never had a problem and they slow down is almost not noticable.

MY HP COMPAQ NC 6000 LAPTOP request a Drivelock HDD bay password


Hi kala_mumbe,

I know how you feel as my HP pavilion has had the same blue screen ansking for the 'drivelock multibay password' . the good news is i have fixed it just 5 mins ago.

I think that you have to get into the bios first. Lets see if I can show you how I helped it to boot up:
  1. at the blue screen I pressed the F10 Key which took me into setup
  2. i then selected the security tab
  3. and then I think I selected drivelock password
  4. and then selected the "Notebook hard drive" item where I tried to disable, with no success

    PLEASE NOTE: at this point I noticed that each time that i tried to disable the password it kept returning to the item 'Notebook hard drive' . I thought to myself that maybe this is the password and not just an item on the list, so I carefully wrote down .. Notebook hard drive .. taking note of capitalization and spaces and then exited setup.
  5. I then noticed that there was nowhere to enter the password so i carefully typed .. Notebook hard drive .. onto the keyboard, and waited. After about 1 min a small 'OK' appeared inside the blue box and my heart leaped for joy inside my chest.
  6. I waited... and a black screen apeared with the wite cursor blinking
  7. and I waited... this time about 5 mins passed and then windows started to load. Thank God!
I hope you get some joy out of this post and it's not too late for your Campac Laptop.

happy, happy

If you have compressed the hard disk drive using the Compress drive to save disk space option under the Properties menu for your hard disk drive and have performed a non-destructive recovery or a system recovery, the following error message may appear: NTLDR is compressed. Press CRTL-ALT-DEL to restart. This error message is resolved by following these steps:
  1. Insert the HP Recovery Tools CD or Compaq Recovery Tools CD into the CD drive on the computer and restart the computer.Wait for the HP Recovery Tools CD or Compaq Recovery Tools CD window to open.
  2. Select Run Microsoft Recovery Console , click Next , and then follow the onscreen instructions. NOTE: If you are unable to open a recovery console, follow the Alternate steps .
  3. Press R to repair the Windows XP installation using Recovery Console.

Compress old files too large


It doesn't actually delete anything when you select Compress Old Files. It actually searches your hard drive and anything that hasn't been used for so many days (forgot how many). This is ok if you need more hard drive space but if you have enough space, you should not use this tool. It will severly slow down your computer while accessing those files. For information on how to disable this, go :

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;310312

If your laptop is slow it probably needs some maintenance like:

Removing Cookies.Temp files. TIF's with CCleaner
Installing ScrubXp to automatically remove such files.
Running Defragmenter in Safe Mode

Also, download and install WinPatrol,Ad-ware 2008 and SpyBlaster.
AVG Anti-virus is great protection against viruses and Trojans
Programs mentioned are free. Defragmenter is part of OS.
MyComputer,C:drive,Tools. defragmenter.

Hp Pavillion ze4900


the way things sound, you definately need a new hard drive and battery. as for saving the information, thats a little dicy. its more than probable an expert can, but it may turn out to be difficult. As for where to send it, i'd say take it to the closest best buy and they will be able to help you amptly.
You will only have to upgrade to vista if you buy a new computer as a whole. you can still stay with 2000 if thats what you prefer.
