Hp iq524 touchsmart recovery cds will not load windows on new hard drive


Try deleting the partitions. You can use any Windows install disc to accomplish this if the HP won't.

For manual deletion you need is fdisk.exe and possibly format.com and at the command prompt.

I am trying to do the restoring program that is in the accessories and i can get it to come up. I click on it and it just brings up a blank white box.


Are you installing from CD's or from the recovery partition on the hard drive? If from CD's, make sure they are clean though I doubt that's really the issue. It never hurts to try it though.

If you are installing from the hard drive recovery partition, your recovery partition could very well be corrupted. You would need a set of recovery CD's and possibly even a new hard drive to complete the HP recovery.

How to restore toshiba labtop with no disc


Hello

Well, if you have no Installation disc, or no cd/dvd rom in this specific model, you should have a recovery partition.

To access the Toshiba recovery partition, power off the laptop. Hold down the 0 (zero) key and turn the laptop on. Keep holding down the zero key until the TOSHIBA logo appears, where you should start tapping the zero key repeatedly. Stop if the unit beeps or when the TOSHIBA logo disappears. The screen should flash ** HDD RECOVERY MODE ** for a split second, then load the Toshiba recovery program right from the hard drive.

Note that this erases all data, and reloads all factory default software. Be sure to back up all your important personal data beforehand!

If this procedure doesn't work, you don't have a recovery partition set up, hence, you will need the installation disc.

Hope this can be of help.

Kind regards
Andrea

Boot from the Windows XP CD-ROM.
Choose 'R' to "repair".
This will start the "Recovery Console".
Run the 'DISKPART' utility to create a new partition.
Remove the CD-ROM, and then type 'exit' to shutdown the Recovery Console.
Insert the first of the 10 "recovery" CDs, and start the reload/recovery.

Replacing with harddrive 40GB


Did you simply swap hard drives? "Couldn't find NTLDR" basically means the PC cannot find any version of Windows installed because the boot file is missing. This could be because you have a CD in the drive or the hard drive is missing or broken.


If you put in a new hard drive to replace your older smaller one you need to reinstall Windows on that new 40GB drive or it just won't work. If you have some PC Tech friends they should be able to move the data which is tricky or help you out.

The memory could not be read


Boot from your cd rom using your windows cd. Adjust your BIOS setting to boot from cd rom. Follow the instruction carefully. When partition editor screen come, break all partition and resize partition as your choice. Than install windows on drive 'C'. You r done. If you cant boot, try using another bootable cd. Let me know whats next.

Error when loading windows


Your shredder may have deleted the MBR (see http://www.geocities.com/thestarman3/asm/mbr/BootToolsRefs.htm for repair tools)
Also the disk partitions may not be recovered by your cd so they will have to be reinstated using PartitionMagic or, if you know how to use it, fdisk in c:\windows\command
Check your disk controller settings and drive types in the setup screen available before booting.
The software is unable to read/write to the drives possibly because of a drive type error or the type of interface selected for the controller in setup.
ATA33 drives have problems on ATA66 settings etc....
If your motherboard was failing it would not correctly select the drive types at boot. It would report

DRIVE C: <none>
and u would get a boot failure.
If you got as far as the setup for your recovery CD I would be surprised if the motherboard was failing.
Swap your DVD to the old Drive cable and try to boot from it. If the controller on the motherboard is bad it wont boot.
Check your cables for damage too..
Hope this helps

Ntldr is missing


seems your MBR is damage. but you can repair it if only you can boot in windows cd and entering in the recovery console.

To run the Recovery Console from the Windows XP startup disks or the Windows XP CD-ROM, follow these steps:
1.    Insert the Windows XP startup disk into the floppy disk drive, or insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.

Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted.
2.    When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
3.    If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console.
4.    When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
5.    At the command prompt, type this commands one at a time.

FIXMBR  C:
FIXBOOT  C:
COPY [CDDRIVE]:\I386\NTLDR  C:\
COPY [CDDRIVE]:\I386\NTDETECT.COM  C:\
BOOTCFG  /rebuild


6.    To exit the Recovery Console and restart the computer, type exit at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.

no warranty...you use on your own risk :)
