I need system restore disk


By this statement, I assume this to mean that you:
  1. Failed to make recovery disks as per the maintenance recommendations when you purchased the machine; or
  2. Made the disks are recommended, but have since lost or misplaced them; or
  3. got the machine second hand and never was given the recovery disks.
The good news is, you can order a restore CD/DVD from HP. The bad news is, that the only recovery option is Windows VISTA, which apparently is what the machine came with. If you need a newer version of Windows than VISTA, you are pretty much out of luck. You will need to purchase a new OS, or reload your OS with whatever media you have and perform a new, clean load. Once you get everything back the way you want it, either purchase a good system recovery software package, or use one of the alternatives on the freeware market. Just be advised that not all recovery software is created equal; some will only work if you can boot the system and then run them. The good ones provide a self-bootable disk to allow you to restore the disk to the image saved.

If VISTA is good enough for you, go to this link and under software option you'll see recovery disk.

I need a recovery disk for my Compaq Presario SR2020NX XP media Center 2005. I got a virus and the only way to restore my desktop is to insert a "recovery disk". Do you by chance have one I can...


The Compaq SR2020NX has an on-board system recovery tool that can be used to create recovery disks. Unfortunately, on many of these models it was not clearly stated that it was the user's responsibility to create recovery disks, so many people did not do so.

You might be able to launch the onboard system recovery by tapping the F11 key when the computer is starting up. Some of the HP/Compaq models from this time frame allowed that option, but not all of them.

If the F11 key does not work, you will need to purchase a recovery disk set. HP/Compaq no longer sells them for this model, but I did find a link for a place where one can be purchased, which appears to be legitimate. http://www.hpandcompaq.com/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=flypage_images.tpl&product_id=4899&category_id=2&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=2&vmcchk=1&Itemid=2

Good luck, and hope this is helpful!

Reformat my computer to windows 7


ATTENTION!
Reformatting a computer will reset it to the factor image, all data must be backed up or it WILL be lost. There are several reasons to reformat a hard drive. A few reasons include but are not limited to: driver issues, virus, cleaning up, getting rid of the computer, etc.

RECOVERY DISKS!
Every new windows 7 owner should know that the new computers are not supplied with recovery disks anymore. The manufacturer allows the user to create one set of disks upon the purchase of a new machine. It is important to create the disks early as driver issues and viruses may arise. In order to create recovery disks on windows 7 you want to click on the start menu. Next, type in recovery in the Start Search option area. Next, click on recovery disk creation and follow the process. It will require that you have about 3 dvds or about 7 cds to create the recovery disk.

REFORMATING HARD DRIVE!
Once the recovery disks have been made reformatting windows 7 is quite simple. Insert the recovery disks into the cd/dvd tray on the machine. You are now going to want to turn the computer off. When the computer has turned off, go ahead and turn it back on. A screen should pop up asking you whether you want to boot from Hard Drive or Disk. Choose the disk option. After you make it this far it is a downhill process. Next you follow the on-screen instruction make sure you reformat the machine, not recover it.

I would like to completely reset my computer to the state I purchased it in and I do not have a recovery cd or anything like that


If you really want to reset your computer to the state it was in when you purchased it then you will need to get a hold of some recovery disks. I found a site that sells a number of recovery disks for various systems and got the link to the specific one for your model of computer http://recovery-disks.com/acer/acer-aspire-m1201.html. They will send you specific instructions on how to use their recover disks.

I NEED THE RECOVERY SYSTEM DISKS


The operating system is normally stored within a hidden partition on the hard disk and if you do not have the recovery disk(s) you should be able to purchase a replacement set from the manufacturer.

It won't start up normally, asks for recovery disk, which I cannot find


When you bought the computer, it should have had an application to create your recovery disks, if you didn't make those and you cannot boot into windows, then you will need to contact gateway support and purchase software recovery disks.

When I start my emachine T3306 gets a black screen with just the cursor? I do not have a system recovery disk. What do I do?


you need to get a operating system boot disk such as ultimate bood disk ( google) or you can go to your local computer store and purchase one of there products that have recovery disks. Your problem is either virus or hard drive failure or maybe system driver is hanging your system. The recovery cd will help you boot into your system and get some more info. You can also call your computer maker and purchase your install media kit which will contain your operaing system and drivers and once run will return your system to it's factory state when you purchased it. Your computer make will charge a fee for these disks, all computer manufacturers charge differently
