    hey elix0411 thanks for your reply.

    I had a reply from ryan and i was told that my windows 7 starter was probly corrupt and my recovery partition was deleated. The only way to do it was to upload via flash drive or ex dvd. the thing with that is i havnt got the product key, that i may need nor a flash drive at the moe.

    I have had a look in my computer and i have 3 drives... c local, d recovery, e hp tools. in the d drive there is no files. so!. is there a way i can just load what i need into the d drive and give that a go???

    thanks again

Welcome to Fixya

Try to turn off the computer manually by holding the power button down for 20 secs. Turn ON the computer again and see if you will be getting the same problem. If same issue occur then you need to restore the computer by using the disks that came with it. You might need to use external cd rom in doing this since this machine doesn't have cdrom drive. The F11 restore software is completely not working that is why the system is not restored.

Please reply to this email for any updates.

Thank you for using Fixya!

    Hi sexy_sag1986. You dont need product in restoring the computer using the Recovery disk. All you need to do is put the disc inside the ext dvd rom drive and boot the computer to the DVD rom. Keep on tapping F12 key when you turn on the computer. if you are prompted with boot options, select your Optical disk drive so that the computer will boot up to that drive.

    you can request for recovery disk at HP support if the computer is still under warranty. No, you cannot use Ipod to boot up you computer.

    Hi. do you have the recovery disk with you? all you need to do is to boot the computer from the CD rom. plug in the cd rom drive your computer and insert the recovery disk. Turn on the computer and keep on tapping the F12. Select ODD drive when prompted for boot device.

Hdd driver for WD 3200BVT-80JJ5TO DATE. 6 OKT 2011. And how it happen was when I was reinstalling windows I deleted the driver for hdd and now I am really in trouble..... Please answer A.S.A.P. Thank

The driver for the HDD is actually built into the HDD. Windows 7 contains a driver to communicate with the drive. If you have a backed up copy of your operating system (created by you on DVD's or CD's when you purchased the machine) then you have all you need to do a complete erasing of the hard disk and restoring it to the way it was when you purchased it (all your added data and programs will be lost).

Performing a system restore:

HP Recovery Manager software allows you to repair or restore the computer to its original factory state. HP Recovery Manager works from recovery discs, a recovery flash drive, or from a dedicated
recovery partition (select models only) on the hard drive. NOTE: A system restore needs to be performed if the computer hard drive has failed or if all attempts to correct any functional computer issues fail. A system restore should be used as a final attempt to correct computer issues.
Note the following when performing a system restore:

You can restore only the system that you have previously backed up. HP recommends that you use Recovery Manager to create either a set of recovery discs or a recovery flash drive as soon as you set up the computer.

Windows has its own built-in repair features, such as System Restore. If you have not already tried these features, try them before using HP Recovery Manager.

HP Recovery Manager restores only software that was preinstalled at the factory. Software not provided with this computer must be downloaded from the manufacturer's Web site or reinstalled
from the disc provided by the manufacturer.

Restoring using the dedicated recovery partition (select models only)

When using the dedicated recovery partition, there is an option to back up pictures, music and other audio, videos and movies, recorded TV shows, documents, spreadsheets and presentations, e-mails,
Internet favorites and settings during this process.

To restore the computer from the recovery partition, follow these steps:

1. Access HP Recovery Manager in either of the following ways:

Select Start > All Programs > HP > HP Recovery Manager > HP Recovery Manager.

- or -

Turn on or restart the computer, and then press esc while the "Press the ESC key for Startup Menu" message is displayed at the bottom of the screen. Then, press f11 while the "F11 (System Recovery)" message is displayed on the screen.

2. Click System Recovery in the HP Recovery Manager window.

3. Follow the on-screen instructions.

Restoring using the restore media

1. If possible, back up all personal files.

2. Insert the first recovery disc into the optical drive on your computer or an optional external optical drive, and then restart the computer.
- or -
Insert the recovery flash drive into a USB port on your computer, and then restart the computer.
NOTE: If the computer does not automatically restart in the HP Recovery Manager, the computer boot order needs to be changed.

3. Press f9 at system bootup.

4. Select the optical drive or the flash drive.

5. Follow the on-screen instructions.

Hope this helps you out.

Hp mini 210-1041nr does not boot up. Keeps looping at startup to did not start successfully

Teaching complex computer topics in text box will never be short.)
PC has vast POINTS OF FAILURE< it was an airplane it be crashed long ago and turned into beer cans.

there are only 2 paths, to any new OS.
(HP media kit or F11) (the HDD must be good. first)

no OS stated, why post not saying what OS is here ,XP?
the ESC key does it work>? guess yes.
this is first test. of all modern HP puters.
power on, (hammer , the ESC key) as the screen tells you do do in white text... see that>?
IF BIOS is alive and the battery inside is not shorted (take it out)
then the F11 key works
if someone (the bad guy) installed, a newer or same OS from a microsoft disk , (NOT HP) then not the PC is slammed.
the F11 is dead.
F11 is the hidden HP restore PARTITION.
here are the tests. in the correct order. on all ; PC , ill post them now. (modern HP only)
1: does BIOS work? Esc key , F2, F9, f10 , f11, )
all BIOS keys most respond at power on, if not the battery is shorted. remove it and continue. (end LT horror 1)
2: screen works , bios works, all bios keyswork even F11 tries to work but does not get to the blue restore pages....
3: if all the above, seems to work but only F11 fails that means 1 of 2 things, the HDD id dead, or the HDD was corrupted.
4: at this point we boot to good old and FREE, Knoppix,V7 media.
we boot it and do the HDD tests NOW,
be a waste of time loadning ANY OS on any bad HDD now, totally time waster to extremes.....
here is how to do that. easy. l
Click linux start button , yah just like windoz
then type disk, or find it in there. run DISK
this is disk testing. see the SMART menu , if the smart data shows
unrecoverable sectors, the HDD is TOASTED, its END OF LIFE.
if the disk test fails, the HDD is toasted worse.

Ok knoppix boots, if not the PC is far far sicker than you think,.

ok this works ok.
the OS on your PC is wrecked.
so load it.
if F11 is dead, that means the HP restore partition is wrecked.
corrupted. as can happen using NON HP restore disks (media)
the correct path now is here.

the HP offical Medial kit from HP, we are not HP we are chat box fixya. (nobody!)

F11 may take you here on any 2006 or newer HP PC

the F11 key runs the HP Recovery partition, installer setup prog.
and land here, on a new PC or any not slammed, with wrong OS.
restore-f11-da0cv3s1i5gku1eufa4qjtra-4-0.jpg power on, hammer, F11, F11.,f11, from 1 second to 5 sec.
repeat power on if F11 did not respond. power off first.
the newer the PC the more choices here.

When laptop hp g6000 is switched on the screen says start window repair (recommended)when this is activated the screen just goes blank and nothing happens. Any advice would be gratful


to avoid this, you need to run system restore on your system.

Restart your system and press "F11"

The system will begin the restore after you press F11. Just follow instructions and your system would be restored.

take care.

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!
