Bootmgr doesnt work on my toshiba


If by boot mgr you understand the boot menu ..for to select the recovery or boot from disk ,,,it may need to go to bios settinsg by pressing F2 on start and in there look for the HOT KEYS .. and enable the f12 key or f11 after case..
If you are referring to a missing boot file ...and this massage is displayed when you try to ope (boot ) the computer ..it means the boot sequence is corrupted and you need to run the recovery partition or disk ..or reinstall the operation system from a boot-able disk ..
to do so ..go to bios and set the first boot device to be the cd /dvd ..save with F10 and restart with the disk inside..and press any key for to boot from cd ..
For recovery partition just press F12 on start and select the recovery partition for boot device ..or F11 if it has a direct recovery start by this key ..
follow the procedure and choose by the case repair or complete system installing ..
In second case you may loose data in the C drive ..including programs you have installed manually and were not installed by the manufacturer..
so ..if you want the files choose repair ..(either from recovery or from disk )
the command on repair if asked ..is fixboot ..(after you choose the hdd0 /windows)

I have toshiba satellite L305d-s5934, Blue screen error appear and hang, when i boot or when i press F2 to enter bios... if i full out the hard disk the computer says: no bootable disk and if i press F2 to...


Sounds like your HDD may have gone bad. What is the name/number of the blue screen error? Google it and see what it means. It may be possible to reinstall the operating system to the original factory settings using the recovery partition (this is usually accessed by tapping F10 or F11 while booting, although I read somewhere that you might be able to gain access to the Toshiba recovery partition by pressing "0" (zero) while the computer is powering on).

You can try to recover the computer to factory settings. If your hard drive has enough life left on it, you might be able to then clone it to a new drive. Drive Image XML is a free software that will do this for you (get that from www.download.com). This way, when you clone the drive, you will also clone the recovery partition, so you don't lose that option. Once you have a new hard drive up and running, use the Toshiba Utility to make System Recovery Disks for the future.

One more thing: If you have recently upgraded/replaced the RAM - this might be your problem. Put the original RAM back in and see if the computer boots. If so, you found the culprit.

Hp pavillion zv6000 no disks need full restore...


Yes, the recovery partition is 100% true, and I've actually used it to repair a lot of systems, simply because it saves you time, stress and energy.
It is always on a smaller partition on your hard disk, and it is also hidden, so you wont see it.
To use the recovery partiton, you have first of all take note that you must backup ALL your documents first, because the use of the recovery partition will Actually format your harddrives and restore your system back to the factory settings, i.e the way you bought it.
Now, provided your own recovery partition is still intact and not yet corrupt, this is how to use it.
When you power up your system, Keep tapping the F11 key, i.e the F11 function key.
This will invoke the command that boots up your recovery parttion and lets your system boot from it.
Thereafter, you can just follow the on-screen instructions to complete the recovery, and again PLEASE remember to backup ALL your necessary documents first.
Hope this helps you out.
Goodluck

Your Model might be a different Button on the Keyboard so PLEASE check your User Guide/Manual for instruction.

How to recovery the system from recovery partition


Did you know you only get ONE shot at creating a recovery disc? And most of the time it is garbage, just like Vista.

He tried to put XP on it and failed? weird.

A couple things you can do...

1. Get your hands on a Vista disk. If you know anyone that works in IT, you can borrow a Vista disk. Do a complete fresh install. Use your "Product Key" and you will have your own Licensed, perfectly legal version of Vista.

2. Get yourself a copy of XP. Delete all partitions, then create a new one. Don't try to save that Vista recovery partition...it's toast. I recommend XP, but I'm a dinosaur.

If you know anyone that works in IT, you can borrow

Hi, Most dells sold in the last 4 to 5 years are sold with a recovery partition on the hard drive. what this means is you should not need any disc`s to do a recovery, unless you have replaced the hard drive. A little trick that most people dont know is that you only need to hold down the CTRL and F11 for a few seconds. Remember you need to do it a s soon as the laptop powers up, you should be given a menu asking you if you want to do a repair or full recovery. if you choose full recovery the the laptop will be restored to factory settings.... hope this helps
