What model notebook are we talking about?

Posted on Jun 11, 2008

First try Ebay, but my advice is for you to just put windows XP Pro on there. With the recovery disk you get all the junk demo programs back. To find XP pro goto www.pricewatch.com and find a cheap copy of xp. Be careful Not to buy the XP pro 64.

I want to return my hp compaq nc6220 notebook to factory settings.


RE BOOT while it starts repeatedly tap F-11. Or go to your Restore and Recovery program in your software.

Restore


If you laptop was not supplied with a Windows CD then most likely the hard disk on your laptop has a recovery partition on the hard drive and you can restore your laptop back to the condition when you first purchased the laptop using this recovery partition.
HP can also supply a recovery CD for your model Compaq if you request one. This is needed when the hard disk has failed.
Read your laptop documentation for the instruction on the restore procedure. You also get this information from HP's WEB site.

COMPAQ PRESARIO M2000 RECOVERY DISC WILL NOT LOAD ON NEW HARD DRIVE


The issue here to be quite frank is the hard drive needs the compaq image before the recovery disk can be loaded. This provents people from taking there compaq disk and getting wise and installing it on multiable computers what authors call piracy.

What you need to do is have compaq NOW HP send you out a IMAGE recovery disc usually when a hard drive crashes they send you out the hard drive with the IMAGE.

The other solution is purchasing windows 7 upgrade and going at it from there.

Thanks hope this helps please do not shoot the messenger and leave postive feedback and ratings.

I formatted my hard drive somehow and cant access windows, how can i get into my hard drive? compaq presario 2100 laptop


If you formatted your hardrive you don't have windows anymore. The format erased it. You'll need to get your Windows CD out and re-install.

The bios test of hard disk test is failed wht can i do now


If the hard disk has failed, and you want the data off of the hard disk, you have two choices..

Purchase a extender to allow you to read the hard disk and also purchase a data recovery program to get the data off the hard disk...

Or google data recovery service and find one that can retrieve data of of bad hard drives..

Either way afterward you will need to purchase a new hard drive.. They have drives as low as 30 dollars online that can be purchased and then installed.

You will need to reinstall windows on the new hard drive you get..

Ultimately you will have to weigh the cost of repairing the computer ( purchasing a hardrive and purchasing a new copy of windows)

Versus purchasing a new computer.

Error : 0x400110020000100A


Look carefully at the hard drive that you are replacing. When you take it out of the [mine is a Compaq f750us] computer you might see, for want of a better term, a "STRETCHER" attached to the contacts/connectors, remove it. Put it on the NEW hard drive, put hard drive into computer. Try it again. I did and I did NOT get the "error" code! Why because the HD is now CONNECTED...touches the contacts..

Compaq Presario C300 Recoivery Disc 2 corrupt


Hi John.

F11 process is not working and you get a NTLDR missing when you turnon the notebook.

Steps to be performed:
1. Perform hard drive self test from BIOS.
2. If it is passed then use retail version of operating system disk to install XP or try using new recovery disks which nay cost you $15.00.

In your notebook model this issue appears if there is any issue with the hard drive.

Put wrong recovery disk into new computer.


have a look here
and more pertinent, the F11 option here. If you have the right disks, you should still be able to run them...you will just have to boot windows from the recovery disks...

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Recover problem


This can happen if the Recovery Partition is corrupted or the Hard Drive is bad.
 First, I recommend you to check the Hard Drive using the Hard Drive test utility available in the BIOS by following the steps below :
Start or restart the notebook and start tapping the F10 key.
This will get you the BIOS Setup window.
In this. go to the Diagnostics or Tools tab where you can find the Hard Drive test utility.
Select using the Up/Down arrow keys and press enter to start the test.
Make sure that you complete the Full test which may take around 80 minutes to complete.
If the Test result is Pass, we can come to a conclusion that the issue is with the Recovery Partition which is corrupted.
You need to purchase the Recovery Disks for your Notebook in this situaiton.
Contact HP Chat Support to get the exact link to order the Recovery Disks for your Notebook.
However, if the Test Result is Fail, you need to take backup of the data in the Notebook and replace the Hard Drive with a new one.
Hope this helps...
