Can I install a NEW 1T HDD where an old HDD failed?


In a lot of cases, the recovery disks you built may be looking for installation files (windows installation files) from a partition that is on the original drive of the machine. Your new drive would not contain this partition or the files. If you can STILL get into the old drive, I would consider putting both drives in your desktop.....and then use an disk imaging software to do a disk to disk clone of your drive rather than reinstalling Windows from the recovery disk. There are plenty of options for free cloning software.....just google free disk imaging, and you will probably find a ton of options with instructions. One thing to note....when cloning a drive be VERY careful when choosing your SOURCE and DESTINATION drives. Your SOURCE would be your old drive with your data, and your DESTINATION is your new drive. If you mess up that step, it will overwrite your old drive with the "blank" data from the new drive, and your data will be lost.

The other advantage to cloning, is you will get an exact replica of your current configuration. you dont need to reinstall programs or reconfigure things.

Hi i have a porbolem with my hp pavilion dv5000 so i wanna reformat it and i dont know why


To reformat your HP machine, you need the recovery disks...This article tells you how to create them....Note...they can only be created ONCE from your machine.....so make sure you do it correctly:

http://www.pctechbytes.com/hp/hp-recovery-cd-creation

Next.... BACK UP your data...and TEST it.....make sure your data is working on your backup media....formatting the drive will erase all your data and start over from a fresh copy of Windows.

After that you need to boot your PC from the recovery disk (if it doesn't ask you to boot from the CD you will need to hit F10 key at your HP splash screen to enter the system BIOS. Find the boot order setting and change it so the CD/DVD drive is on top)

After you successfully boot from the DVD, you can pretty much follow the on screen instructions. The following page has more information on reinstalling Windows: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/help/install-reinstall-uninstall

Good Luck...be careful, but don't be afraid :) as long as you have good backups you should be all good.

I have an Everex Impact GC 2500 and it says I need to reinstall windows xp but I dont have the disk or product key code from yrs ago. Part of my sticker on the side of the computer is torn so I cant see...


If your current copy of Windows is still working, search online for the free 'PRODUKEY' software.
Download it. Unzip it. Run it, and it will tell you the 25-character product-key that you used when you installed Windows. Write it down!

> don't have the disk

Some computers have an option at power-on time to boot to the "System Recovery" environment.
From that environment, you can reinstall Windows.

Some computers have a utility to use your CD/DVD writer to burn a set of "System Recovery" disks. Get up to 10 CD-writable disks, and run the utility.

Or, contact the manufacturer, and order a set of "System Recovery" disks.
Probably about $20, plus $20 for overnight-courier.

Can't Sign into Windows...How to do system reboot if I can't log in to windows?


Hi e_norris

Do you have either the Windows installation disk or a Recovery Disk. Some manufacturers ship the Recovery Disk with the PC others require you to create one when you first turn the computer on.

How can do i clear my hard drive and reinstall windows


You can launch Acer eRecovery Management in a number of ways:
By pressing the hotkey <Alt> + <F10> during the boot-up process, or at any
time when you are running Microsoft® Windows®.
This will open the Acer eRecovery Management main page.
Password
Acer eRecovery Management requires a password to activate. The default
password is six zeros (0s).
Note: If an incorrect password is entered three times, Acer
eRecovery Management closes and returns to Windows®
automatically.
System recovery
Step 1: Click on “Recovery actions”.
Step 2: You are presented with a list of available options
CHOOSE-->Recover system from CD/DVD backup
If you choose to restore from an image on an optical disk, the BIOS will be
changed to boot from the optical drive. If no backup disk is found, you are
prompted to insert the disk.
Reinstall
IF THOSE DISKS DONT WORK , YOU CAN ALWAYS RESTORE TO FACTORY SPEC FROM THE HIDDEN PARTITION ON YOUR HARDDRIVE.
Hope this helps you out .. Regards

Trying to reinstall xp with recovery discs, now i cant get it to boot


If you can boot go to safe mode using F8, see if you can do system restore from start/programs/accessories/system tools.

If you cannot boot, or system restore does not work you need to reinstall Windows, either using recovery CD from Acer, or generic Windows disk. In last case you will need to reinstall driver after installing windows.
If you do not format hard disk or delete partition, you will be able to recover your data (documents, pictures, music, desktop contacts etc) after installing Windows.

Always better than incinerating your Acer.
