Usually you just put the first backup disk in the CD/DVD drive and restart/reboot the computer.
If it does'nt boot up you have to go in to the bios settings and change the boot sequence so that it boots from the CD/DVD rom instead of the Hard Drive. When it's finished the restore task you can either leave the bios settings as they are, or change it back to boot from the Hard Drive. Sometimes the backup/restore disks will put the PC back to the same as the day you bought it, which means completely wiping the Hard Drive and reloading the Operating System (Windows) and any programs that where installed at the time the disks were made. If you can run the backup/recovery from within Windows there will be a program in the Programs list on the Start menu. That way you usually keep anything that you have added since you bought the PC and it just reinstalls the Operating System to restore it back to it's original condition.

Hope this helps.

DX4380G-UW308 will not boot


your acronis backup may not have included the system restore files. in other words your OS(windows). if this is the case you should have restored your pc(hard-drive) with your Windows OS system disk, then transferred the backup with the adapter. if the backup does not included system operating files(windows) there will be no boot.usually in backing up system it will give options, or it will ask you to have gateway send you system disks or tell you to create an image of it so you will have a copy of your hard drive when you first got it. then backups are done of ONLY the files added to the hard drive post first getting it. All system files and programs are on the system disks. these days manufacturers don't include system disks with pcs so you have to ask them be sent($15) to you or you download an image of them. in case you need to restore your pc in the future.

When I turn My Computer On The Screen Just Goes blue. What Do I Do?


Microsoft Windows is reporting some sort of error.

Take your computer to "The Geek Squad" or to some qualified technician, along with the original set of CD-ROMs that are used to re-install Windows. Be sure that the technician does a "full-backup" of all your files & music, before wiping the disk-drive, and re-installing Windows.

How to extact the data off the Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 320GB HD


if its your motherboard that crashed then ther is no problem with your hard disk. connect your hard disk to any other computer and you can access all the files in it.
if it is your harddsik that crashed then try recovery utilities like western digital data storege manger or any other disk recovery tool available for free. if still it fails then you can recover your data if you hand over your hard disk to the nearest service centre. but recover from a hard disk only if its very valuable. thay will charge you per MB of data recovered

My OS is correpted it gives blue screen


Im not suprised as alot of recovery disks seems to be a fail. If you call up HP theyll most likely send u a free set of recovery disks if you push them enough. The HP recovery disks issues are actually a generic disk to recover different DV models so theres more likely a chance that it will fail too.

Hard drive recovery, hard drive is damaged


My brother's MacBook Pro had a similar issue a few years ago. In his case the issue started when he attempted to update the OS to the then most recent version. The update failed with an error saying that the Hard Disk needed to be repaired and instructing him to restart in Recovery Mode and repair the disk. When he did this the "Repair Disk" option was grayed out as you said. From my searches then it seems that the drive entered a "write-locked" state that prevented it from mounting. I was able to recover his files and restore the computer to working order. You will need another computer that has enough free space to hold the files you want to save, and the appropriate cable to connect the misbehaving computer to the working computer.
This procedure requires booting in Recovery Mode and erasing the non-working computer's hard drive, reformatting it, and restoring the system.
1. Turn on the working computer.
2. Make sure the non-working computer is turned off, connect the two computers using the appropriate cable (FireWire or Thunderbolt)
3. Turn on the non-working computer holding down the "T" key to enter Target Disk Mode. (This worked in the case of my brother's computer, but I can't guarantee that this will work in your case, but if you could get it into Verbose mode I would think you should be able to get into Target Disk Mode.)
4. The non-working computer's hard drive icon should appear on the working computer's desktop. You may get a message that you cannot alter the contents of the external drive (non-working computer), but you will be able to transfer files from the non-working machine to the working one.
NOTE: You could connect a dedicated external drive to the working computer and transfer files from the non-working computer to the external drive using the working computer as an intermediary of sorts.
5. Transfer the files you wish to save. We will be erasing the non-working computer's drive and restoring the system so be certain you have what you need transferred before you get to that step.
6. Once you have saved all of the files you need to save, you can eject the non-working computer's hard drive, and turn off the non-working computer.
7. If possible connect the computer to the internet, if not possible you can use wi-fi, but it may take longer.
8. Connect the non-working computer to the drive with your most recent backup.
8. Turn on the non-working computer holding down the "Command+R" keys.
9. Once the computer is in Recovery Mode choose the option to Restore From Backup
10. You will then be asked to choose which backup to use, and then click "Restore". Once this process is done you should be able to boot the system. You can then transfer the files you saved to the other computer or external hard drive back to the restored computer.
