Are you able to boot into "Safe Mode"? If you are, once you're booted into safe more, install your XP installation CD into the tray.

Now, open your windows browser, click "Tools" on the menu bar, then select "Folder Options". Now click on the "View" tab, then click on "Show hidden files and folders" and uncheck the box in front of "Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)". Click "Apply", then "OK".

Now, Click to open the "I386" folder on you XP installation CD and locate the "NTLDR" file. Once found, copy it from there into the root C:\, and into the C:\Windows\Repair folder (as a backup for future use). When you copy it to the root "C:\", if it asks to replace an exsisting copy of "NTLDR", click to replace it.

Now you should try rebooting the computer. If the missing NTLDR file was the only problen with the Operating system, your computer should boot up just fine.
Good Luck!!

To access the recovery options below that erase all data from the computer, click the Advanced button.
System Recovery - No format: this will reinstall Windows, supplied applications and drivers. It will move your files to a folder called "My old disk structure". Any applications (except those supplied) will need to be reinstalled.

NEED TO KNOW HOW I CAN PREVENT BACKUP FILES FROM GOING INTO MY RECOVERY(D), AND FILLING IT UP. I AM RECEIVING MESSAGE THAT I HAVE LOW DISK SPACE IN RECOVERY DISK. HOW DO I FREE UP THIS SPACE, AND HOW


Are you sure the files are going in there? Many times the manufacturers only allocate the size that they need partitioned on that drive. I have seen many cases where that drive is full from factory and people always get that message.

  1. Click Start c01508537.gif and right-click Computer .
  2. Select Properties .
  3. Click System Protection from the left side of the Window.
  4. In the section "Automatic restore points", remove the selection next to the D: drive, and then click OK . If the D: drive was not selected, close this window. Figure 3: System Protection tab with D: drive unselected
    c01556005.jpg
  5. Right-click Start Explore All Users .
  6. Before you can remove the backup files and folders, you need to be able to view hidden system files as follows:
    1. From the explorer window press the Alt key on the keyboard to make the menu bar appear in the window.
    2. From the file menu, click Tools , and then select Folder Options .
    3. Select the View tab.
    4. Select Show hidden files and folders , remove the selection from Hide protected operating system files and then click OK .
  7. From the Folder Options window in explorer, double-click Recovery (D:) .
  8. If a Window opens stating "You don't currently have permission to access this folder" opens. Click Continue .
  9. If you previously copied or created any files into Recovery (D:) and you want to keep them, copy them to another drive - such as the C: drive.
  10. Find and delete any files that you previously copied onto the Recovery (D:) drive.
    CAUTION:Do not delete any files that are associated to recovery! Do not delete the items RECOVERY, $RECYCLE.BIN, boot, hp, PC-Doctor, pcdr, or PRELOAD! Doing so can prevent a future system recovery from the hard drive. If you are not sure, do not delete the file.
    Press Shift + Delete to permanently remove the files.
    To delete files created from MS Backup (MS Backup files are not recovery files), find and delete the folder with the same name as the computer name in the Recovery (D:) partition. For example if the computer name is BOB-PC, the folder containing the backup files would be named BOB-PC and would be deleted.
  11. Several confirmation windows open. Click Continue , and Yes until the folder is deleted.
  12. To set Windows Folder Options back to their original setting as follows:
    1. From the explorer window press Alt to view the file menu.
    2. Click Tools , and then select Folder Options .
    3. Select do not show hidden files and folders and select Hide protected operating system files .
    4. Click OK .
  13. Close explorer. The Out of Disk Space errors should no longer appear. If you would like to use the Microsoft Backup Tool again, open it and select a different external backup device to store the backup files on.

What do you mean you can't open files or folders? Are you saying the files or folders are not on the hard drive since it's blank? I think you've got a virus that has hidden your files and folders?

I'm not sure which operating system you have but you need to get to Folder Options.

In Windows XP you can click Start/My Computer. When My Computer Opens click Tools at the top of the window and then select Folder Options. When the Folder Options window opens, click the View Tab and scroll down and select Show All Hidden Files And Folders. Click OK then go click on your C: Local Drive and see if your folders and files are there. Hidden Folders will show up lighter than a normal folder.

My verbatim 4g flash drive is recognizable when i plug it into a computer. The compuetr then indicates how much space is free and how much is available. Opening it will show the documents but when i try to...


This is a funny one. It appears the folders are empty and therefore one assumes the files were dragged off and placed somewhere else. As it is a flash drive there is no recovery possible. Just make sure you have in your control panel and then folder options and then view show hidden files and folders ticked. If you still cannot see them then try another computer and see if they can be seen on that. One other option is stick the flash into a mac and see what happens with that. If no the sorry you have lost them.

How can i restore back to factory condition without the disc?


Use the following steps to recover the computer from the Windows XP desktop:
  1. Backup files from the My Documents folder and from other folders you may have created.
  2. Disconnect all connected devices (such as the Personal Media Drive, USB drives, printer, and fax), remove media from drives, and remove any recently added internal hardware. Do not disconnect the monitor, keyboard, mouse, and power cord.
  3. From the Windows XP desktop, click Start , All Programs , and then one of the following options:
    NOTE: The following options are for HP computers. Compaq computers will have similar options (for example, Compaq Tools).
    • HP Tools , and then HP PC System Recovery .
    • Hewlett-Packard , hp pavilion pc tools , and hp pc system recovery .
    • PC Help & Tools , and then HP PC System Recovery .
    c00370937.jpg A recovery Welcome screen appears.
  4. Click Yes or OK to continue the recovery process. The computer restarts to the recovery program. If another welcome screen is displayed, click OK to continue.
  5. Select one of the following procedures, depending on which recovery type you want to perform:
    • To perform a system recovery, click Next , and then click Yes
    • To perform a destructive recovery, click Advanced , (select Destructive Recovery ) and then click Next .
      CAUTION: A destructive recovery will format the hard drive. This will delete all the information on the hard drive and reinstall Windows XP and the original software that came with the computer.
  6. Read and respond to each window and screen that appears.
  7. After the System Recovery is complete, the computer restarts and continues into Windows setup. Complete the setup screens and wait until the PC finishes the setup.
    NOTE: It may take a long time to complete Windows setup. This time varies and may take over several hours. Recovery times are most affected by using recovery discs that were ordered from HP and/or the amount of files that were stored in the user account folders (for example, My Documents and the Desktop).
  8. Before using your computer, update and protect your computer. For more information, refer to Things To Do After Performing a System Recovery in Windows XP .
  9. Re-install applications that you added after purchasing the computer, and any files that you have backed up.

Pop up on computer says I have low disk space on hp-recovery(d) but I have nothing on that drive to get rid of


well..that's a drive that HP sets aside, as part of your c drive for recovery. you can back that up online, or elsewhere, and then wipe that part clean..if you like.. but be careful NOT to wipe the other side of the disk..

another approach, is to re partion the drive, but that's not something that I advise for just anyone.
