I have replaced the hard drive. how do i get it to go? Bought the unit brand new in sydney around 2004. have always had problems. hasnt been used for around 4 years, tring to ressurect. Cant find my...


Restore disks are, without exception, model or series specific - so giving a make / model / series number would help. That being said, hunting down something 6, 7 yrs old ain't easy (unless you own one of the best sellers). Best bet for any type of restore media is eBay - you'll want the "original" restore disk(s) which will be hard to find. . Best alternative is to figure out what OS your computer came with, go to the manufacturer's support site, and see if the drivers and utilities are available - most manufacturers are pretty darn good in this area - download them, then get a generic OS installation disk (Windows, etc.) and do a fresh install.

My preference is always the abovementioned alternative: your computer will run lighter and faster - you'll be without all the bundled / free / trial software that came with the restore media, but you'll be running without all the dated / marketing **** that your computer was originally sold with. You'll feel the difference right away!

I accidentally uninstalled my HP Photosmart C4580 Printer and do not have the originally software disk to reinstall it. Is there any way I can reinstall without the disk?


Hi,

You can download the installation driver and software from manufacturer's support website by clicking this link

On the page which opens, select the operating system of your computer (Windows Xp/ Vista..) from the drop-down menu and click the "Next" button.

The list of available drivers will load only after selecting the operating system of the computer.

Then download the "HP Photosmart Full Feature Software and Drivers" package.

Hope this solves your problem. Thanks for using FixYa

It is not formatting., please help me


hi

follow these instructions

Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Windows installation media (and product key)
  • Manufacturer software
  1. Ensure that the hard disk is installed properly in the laptop. The drive cannot be formatted before it is installed, or if it's not installed correctly.

  2. Gather the required software. The type of media will depend on the hardware in your laptop. Older computers without a CD-ROM drive, will require the use of the operating system floppy disks. Laptops that can run Windows XP require the installation CD and product key. Older versions of Windows also have disk-formatting capability in the installation process, and the installation media is either a CD or floppy disk.

  3. Place the installation disk or manufacturer software in the drive and then boot the computer. Early in the installation process, the Windows installer has a step that will detect any installed hard disks and allow for them to be formatted. The software from the disk manufacturer will also detect the hard disk and give you the option to format the drive.

  4. Determine which file system is to be used. Windows XP will either work on a NTFS file system or an older VFAT file system. Choose the desired file system when prompted.

  5. Decide whether the whole disk should be formatted or if the disk will be partitioned and each partition to be formatted separately. The Windows installer includes a menu-driven utility that will create hard disk partitions before formatting. If the hard disk is being formatted to replace an existing Windows installation, delete the existing partitions and re-create them.

  6. Format the hard disk with the Windows installer when prompted. The Windows installer will let you know when it is time to format the disk and ask for confirmation.

this should help you.

Product key


Assuming you mean the product key for Windows, the product key should be on a sticker, usually on the bottom of the laptop. It is probably 25 digits mixed numbers and letters. You should have the disk it came with to install it - sometimes the product key will work with a disk from a different computer, but if the setup disk and your key are different versions it will not work. An example: If you do not have the original setup disk your computer came with, and your computer has XP home and you borrow a disk from someone but it is XP Pro, your number will not work. If your original disk was for XP home and it was with SP-2, (SP = Service Pack) a disk without SP-2 will not work. Plus, the original disk(s) usually came with the drivers you will need to reinstall Windows. You would be pretty lucky to install Windows and not need to download drivers to finish installation. Original setup disks from the manufacturer are not that expensive, and save a lot of time and frustration.

Keeps saying "scanner failure" What do I do?


Scanners are a real legacy issue within windows - they have been there forever and yet the software controlling them hasn't been improved on - TWAIN it is the name of the Toolkit which communicates with your scanner and the proprietary software sits on top of that. TWAIN stands for "Toolkit Without An Interesting Name" - I think says it all. It hasn't been improved on much through the various releases of Windows. But to help you more we would need a lot more information.

- Platform Windows 7 .... Mac ...
- Scanner name and manufacturer
- Type of connection to the scanner ( USB ¦ WIRELESS )
- Whether you have had the scanner working in the past on this machine.
- Does the scanner work on another machine - Do you have another machine on which to try the scanner.
- Do you have the original disks for the scanner. And the original Windows Disk - so that you can load up the TWAIN software.
- How did you install the software for the scanner
- Have you come across this TWAIN driver ( perhaps you haven't installed that - because the Manufacturer's software doesn't include the TWAIN driver ( you have to load that from your Windows disk )

If you haven't loaded the TWAIN software - then perhaps - you should de-install the Manufacturers software and then install the TWAIN driver from the disk ( although - it may already be resident in the bowls of the Windows environment on the machine ) and then finally re-install the Manufacturer's software ...

So more questions than answers - but I hope that helps ....

After reinstallion, no emachines recovery/original programs/apps


Your recovery software is usually comprised of more than one disk. You should have one windows disk in addition to the eMachines disk(s). Complete recovery requires that you use all the disks, in order to return to original state. If you are missing programs, it is because you did not use all the disks.

Option A: Go here to order a complete set of recovery disks:

https://secure.tx.acer.com/RCDB/Main.aspx?brand=emachines

You will need your machine serial number to ensure you obtain the correct recovery disks; they are about 20$ plus shipping.

Option B: Use your eRecovery: Restart the computer and when it begins booting up, you have to hit repeatedly/hold down a key to enter the Recovery management menu. As for the key, it varies from manufacturer to manufacturer, but try the F10 key for starters. If it's not that one, try the F12, or the F8 key. That should get you pointed in the right direction. Just follow the screen prompts, and choose RECOVERY, not RESTORE. Also make sure you choose Recovery without disks.

Reply if you need more help.

Hope this helps.

If you received the CD's that the original owner received with the machine, re-install Windows and all of the drivers. After that install anti-virus software and go from there. If the CD's did not come with your purchase there's not much you can do to restore without software disks.

1 Answer

Software


Yes, if what you are inquiring about is the original Operating System, and all softwares that you received on purchase that may have come pre-installed on the computer etc.

Some of the newer computers that you buy may not come with any CD's at all, and they have special products installed that allows you to fix problems with your computer from them, rather than having to use the CD's like earlier computers. However if these products are not helpful the Manufacturer will send you the original softwares on CD or DVD to assist in repair your computer.

**Some of the manufacturers may charge around $30 to get the disks.
