If you do not have the CD anymore, then you might be able to get them from the internet, or copy them onto a USB drive from a friend

F11...system recovery in hp laptop


System recovery is for serious disk/operating system corruption problems. There is a system recovery partition on HP laptops that contains routines to restore your laptop to the configuration it came from the factory with. Backup all your personal files to a CD or USB stick or portable hard drive before using system recovery as it will erase anything you have added to your primary hard drive since it left the factory. That can especially be a problem if you have upgraded to a newer version of Windows than what your laptop came with, as HP is somewhat 'known' for not upgrading the recovery partition if you don't have recovery CD's for the new operating system bought from HP. If your recovery partition has been erased or corrupted, you will have to either use HP recovery CD's (which may be available from HP if your laptop is new enough)
or do a format and complete installation from the proper Windows installation CD. Either way, your personal files are toast if you don't back them up first. In some cases of operating system failure, you can get an external USB drive box, put your old HDD in it and use another computer to try and read files from the disk to try and save your personal files.

I just restarted my HP and now it says there is no hard drive and I dont have a recovery disk


try disconnecting the drive and reseating it first.

If you enter the bios (f10 on startup) does the computer even detect the drive? If not - try reseating it - don't forget to power off first

Failing that try the hp recovery partition
1
Press the power button to start the HP. Press and hold the F11 key to launch the HP Recovery Manager from the recovery partition.
2
Backup any files you want to save. Follow the HP Recovery Manager instructions to save any important files before continuing with the recovery process.
3
Continue the recovery process. After backing up files to an external device or CD/DVDs, select the option to perform a system recovery.
4
Obtain and install updates for the HP. After your system reboots, use HP update manager as well as Windows update to restore all critical updates to your HP computer.
5
Make a set of recovery disks. Use HP Recovery Manager and select "Advanced Options" to create a set of recovery disks that can be used in the event that your HP cannot access the hard drive.

Hi, I have the same problem with my G70-120EA. You can order recovery kit disk via HP website at cost (£33 in UK). These may or may not solve it. I hoping that I can bring mine back to life without wiping out my un-backed up data.

Anyone else help?

HP Pavillion laptop won't backup to optical drive...CD/DVD-RW; I do have 1 Click Copy (&Pro) installed as well as DVD43. I have tried to uninstall the DVD43 & 1 Click but it doesn't change...


HP Pavillion laptops and every others laptops do require CD/DVD recordable for backup not CD/DVD rewritable. Try to use a CD/DVD recordable to see what will happen first.

Send me the steps that should be follow to get another set of recovery dvd'S FOR hp laptop with vista operating systems


HP laptops have a space set-aside for back-up and recovery. Your HP should allow you to create a set of back-up DVD's for your compute.

Go to "help and support" and query recovery disks.

Also, check if you have a recovery drive (drive "d")

Should you need to recover you HP laptop be sure to backup all you essential files (music, photos, documents, downloads etc.) No need to save the programs you have on disk and/or download. Just prepare for a lot of work.

I just did it on my wife's HP laptop with Vista and now she has a "new" computer.

Less than 15% of available space on "H"drive on HP dv9000 laptop


Windows may have filled your H:Drive with System Restore Points.

FOR WINDOWS XP:
By Default, Windows will save your System Restore Files on both Partitions of your Hard Drive. Right Click on My Computer and click Properties. (Or go to Control Panel and double-click the System icon)

Click the System Restore Tab at the top of the Window that pops up. In that box in the middle should be a listing of the C: and H: Drive. Click the H: Drive to highlight it and Click the Settings button.

Screenshot: http://technophobik.co.uk/vxp_control_panel/s005_sys_prop_system_restore.asp

On the next Window click the box that says: Turn off System Restore for this Drive. This will stop putting System Restore points on the H:Drive and it will also remove the System Restore Points already saved to the H:Drive.

FOR VISTA:

Click Start and then right click Computer and click Properties. Or in the Start menu, click Control Panel, and on the left hand side click Classic View. Then double click the System icon and on the left hand side again, click Advance System Settings.

Click the System Protection tab at the top of the box. The uncheck the box beside the H:Drive in the box under Automatic Restore Points.


If Windows tried to perform an automatic backup:

The Recovery Files should be hidden on your recovery partition H:. At the top of the screen in the H:Drive click Tools > Folder Options

Click the View Tab and go down the list of Advance Options and clcik in the circle to "Show Hidden Files and Folders"

If you computer used the WIndows Backup and Restore to backup files, look for a Folder Named PC-"Your WIndows User Name", with the name of your Windows Login after the PC-

If you don't see that folder, don't delete anything else.

If you do see that folder you can delete it You can open that folder and see the files that were stored. That is the backup Windows created and by default the Windows Back Up and Restore program likes to choose the first partition that is not the C:Windows partition. Do Not Delete anything else.

You can go to your Program Files in the Start Menu and go to the Windows Backup and Restore and in the options change the backup location to somewhere else, or turn off the automatic backup feature.

Don't use the partition set aside for the recovery for anything else or save data there.

Many things going wrong


It seems some thing is going wrong in your operating system. It might be caused by a virus or misshandling of your OS.
Anyways to overcome this problem HP gives you to make restore factory setting for your lap.
WARNING: MAKE BACKUP OF ALL YOUR IMPORTANT FILES AND DATA, BECAUSE ALL YOUR PROGRAM AND DATA WILL BE LOST WHICH YOU HAVE INSTALLED AFTER FIRST RUN OF THE LAP. SO BEAWARE BEFORE MAKING SYSTEM RECOVERY.

Restore the PC to original condition with the HP Recovery Manager Follow the steps below to use HP Recovery Manager to return your notebook to its baseline factory condition, then allow the PC to run all the setup programs.
  1. Press the power button to turn on the PC, and press F11 on the keyboard immediately while the computer is starting up. The HP Backup and Recovery Manager window will appear.
  2. Click Advanced options , select the System recovery option, and then click Next .
  3. If the Recovery Manager can access the hard drive it displays a prompt to backup up user files before continuing the recovery. You may either backup your files, or skip the backup and recover the operating system.
  4. If the Recovery Manager cannot access the hard drive to fix the system errors, use the set of Recovery disks that you created to recover the hard drive to its original condition.
After the hard drive is returned to its original condition, restart the PC and allow the PC to run all the setup programs For more details you can surf the HP website Thanks Iqbal

Factory settings


If windows still boots ( and the original hard drive is still in the computer) you can click the start button and find the HP Recovery Manager under the All Programs list. It is probably tucked away under one of the HP tabs.

If windows doesn't boot, and you still have the original hard drive you can press F11 when your first turn it on at the HP logo screen. It should start the recovery program. (The F key can be different on different laptops but most recent HP's are F11)

Be careful, doing a System Restore will erase all your Data, so backup anything important!
