Lost d drive

I did a system recovery and lost my d drive and went from a 80gb hard drive to a 30 gb hard drive. I was told to put everything that was important in the d drive and do a system factory restore and not loose anything. Once I did the restore the system runs very slow and I now only have a 30gb hard drive the other partition no longer shows up. please help

My hp pavilion dv7-4285dx has lost everything, os and all. How can I get it to read the recovery disc I ordered from HP?


What makes you think you've lost everything? Unless you specifically instructed your computer to Format the hard drive, I would doubt very seriously that you have lost everything. Everything might still be there, but a virus has hidden it to make you think you've lost everything. Oh, one more way to lose everything is to interrupt a System Recovery before it completes, or interrupt an Fresh Install of Windows before it completes.

A lot of times the System will think you've lost everything because somehow a setting the bios was changed either by you or some virus and it has set the hard drive where it is not detectable. Turn your computer off then watch the screen to see which key you have to hit to get into the BIOS or SETUP or System Setup.

Once you are in the BIOS scroll through it looking for AHCI that will be associated with disk drives or disk controllers. If it is Enabled, Disable it and Boot your machine. If it is Disabled, Enable it and Boot your machine. In other words just change the settings for AHCI.

Do that and report back.

What is the maximum size of hard drive for the travelmate 2300


Hello,

Please keep in mind this unit uses IDE hard drive instead of SATA. The default 2300 uses a 30 GB high-capacity Enhanced-IDE hard disk. With latest BIOS upgrade, this unit will be able to have anything installed. 80GB, 160GB, 250GB, 320GB, 500GB.

However, I believe that IDE hard drives are slowly but surely becoming obsolete and legacy and they seem to be more expensive as well.

Partition


A recovery partition is mainly a waste of hard drive space. Instead, click Start, All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - Backup Status and Configuration. Fallow the instructions.
System Restore is also a hard drive hog. There is a way to limit it to a user specified hard drive allocation...

Hard drive


If you already have an 80GB installed, more than likely you can go as big as you want. There used to be a restriction because of the data built into OS's and hardware, but no more.

Ive installed 160gb seagate 2.5 ide hard drive in my acer 2303lc when i put in recovery cd it says invalid system disk,replace the disk and press any key but when i press the key nothing happens ,its a new...


Hey,

Do you have more of those recovery discs? are you sure you have the right one inserted?

I remember on my acer I first had to enter a system disc, then when asked the two recovery discs.

If your unable to get it working with those cds I would suggest you get your hands on a original windows xp or vista installation cd and install windows from it.

also have you tried to enter the boot menu on start up? when you power up it says on some corner of the screen what button to press to get it to open the boot menu and then select the cd/dvd rom drive.


Let me know if you need anything else.


Thanks,
Ekse

Re toshiba laptop 5000


If you have the proper Recovery disk in machine, Reboot system. It should prompt you if you would like to reformat drive. And will warn you that all info on drive will be lost. If you have back up of everything you want to keep just answer yes. System may take a while but it will reformat hard drive and install all original system files and programs.

Just replace the old one and put in your restore disc and it should ask if you want to boot from the cd and that will take care of it

Laptop doesd not boot


you can put up to a 20gb drive in this machine,,,,the other thng you can do is actually format your drive, do not quick format as this will not map bad sectors,, then I would use the restoration disk to recover your operating sytem and programs, and do all available updates,,,,good luck i hope this helps...
