F11...system recovery in hp laptop


System recovery is for serious disk/operating system corruption problems. There is a system recovery partition on HP laptops that contains routines to restore your laptop to the configuration it came from the factory with. Backup all your personal files to a CD or USB stick or portable hard drive before using system recovery as it will erase anything you have added to your primary hard drive since it left the factory. That can especially be a problem if you have upgraded to a newer version of Windows than what your laptop came with, as HP is somewhat 'known' for not upgrading the recovery partition if you don't have recovery CD's for the new operating system bought from HP. If your recovery partition has been erased or corrupted, you will have to either use HP recovery CD's (which may be available from HP if your laptop is new enough)
or do a format and complete installation from the proper Windows installation CD. Either way, your personal files are toast if you don't back them up first. In some cases of operating system failure, you can get an external USB drive box, put your old HDD in it and use another computer to try and read files from the disk to try and save your personal files.

Windows vista recovery cd I created won't install on new hard drive


Which software did you use to create the recovery disk? Is the recovery disk a CD or DVD?

Just to recover a vista system from recovery DVDs would require at least two DVDs. Your files would be in addition to this so I would be very surprised if you have only a single disk containing both the operating system and all of your files.

A simple recovery disk would only be useful for restoring lost operating system files to a hard disk that had corrupted or deleted files. It would let you restore to a new blank disk.

If the disk only contains a backup of your data then you would need to first install an operating system (Vista or Windows 7) and then install the backup software you used to create the disk and then you could recover your data from the disk.

I want to replace hard disk of my presario v6700, which has a buitin recovery disk from the company. i made recovery disks already. but when i want to install windows from the recovery disk on the new hard...


This error is when you try to use OEM recovery disks with a non OEM hard drive. The company recovery disks will not work, they do this to prevent software fraud. Sorry to say you will have to purchase a copy of windows and start over :(

Reformat hard drive


How to format your hard drive and re install your operating system.
in order for you to do this you have to (before you format)
1. make sure that you have your recovery cd's or a cd/DVD with your operating system (windows or Mac)
2. try to back up all your information to an external Hard drive or DVD's depends on how much usable information you may have.
3. try to handpic your files to back up because if you do an auto back up you will end up with the same problem again.
-- to do a back up copy all your needed files to an empty folder and then burn them to DVD's or copy to an ext. HD.
4. after you do that (if you have your recovery cd's) insert #1 and restart your computer it will tell you to press any key to start from cd do that and follow directions.
5. when the program shows your partitions go ahead and delete them all, you need to end up with one
6. when you see just one partition go ahead and click continue and it will install your new operating system
7. if you have more than 1 cd it will ask you to insert the next one and so on.
8 after it finishes installing, get the cd out and run the setup process like if you've got a brand new computer, type the information and keep clicking next.
9. at one point you would be on the windows screen and that is it you have a brand new operating system.
Note: take in consideration that when you follow this process, you
erase EVERYTHING from the system including files and programs so after you do this you are going to have to re-install all your programs and copy your docs. back to the pc.
**** If you don't have the discs
check under start-(all) programs - start up- recovery- disk creation.
that (if you have it) will help you to create your recovery disks try to use 2 dvd's if posible if not you may have to get a windows cd to re- install and install drivers and apps.

if it works for you don't forget to rate me

thx

I have tried everything Ctrl F11, Ctrl F9, Ctrl F8 and nothing allows me to reset the harddrive


Im not sure that you understood the concept of resetting the hdd...this can be done only by formatting ...and from the windows you can not format but the partitions(drives) that not contain the windows installation ...to be able to format all partitions you have to use a installation cd with the operation system ( a boot-able one ) ..and boot from cd ...by selecting this operation from Bios settings ...and go along with the clean installation not from the recovery partition or cd ...
after you get along with the clean installation and formatted the hdd and remake the partitions ...and finished the installation of the operating system ...than you can use the recovery cd to install the drivers and the factory settings and programs .....
another easy way to do that ..is to hook it on another computer ...and just format it from windows...this will erase it clean ..and you will have to reinstall the OS after that ...

Have problem with windows Xp pro.


You can get the correct drivers from the Gateway website. Use another computer and download all the Windows XP files for that model number from the website. You need your model number of your pc. Get the files for your motherboard, video, sound card, network card, etc. save them to a usb key or a burn them to a cd. Take the usb key/cd to the other system and load the drivers.

This will get your system back up and running in now time.

I hope this helps you.

Stepbystep procedure for formating


Hello jerapur_123 What you'll need:
  • Recovery CD or Restore CD from the MFG
  • WIndows Operating Disk 98 or ME, 2000, XP or Vista.
  • A CD Rom Drive
  • Or a Floppy for low level formatting.
Key Steps to Formatting
Back it Up!
Before the format process, you want to make sure that if your goal is hard drive recovery, you back-up as much personal data and information from your hard drive as you need. In some instances where a virus has caused serious system damage, this may not be possible, but if your format is planned ahead of time you certainly can copy and archive data off your hard drive before you start the format process.

How to Format
If you purchased your computer from systems vendor such as a Dell, HP Compaq or Gateway system, you most likely will have a set-up or a restore-and-recovery CD (also referred to as a master CD) that came with the system. If this is the type of system you use, then a format is an easy process as the master CD by inserting the CD into your CDROM, will format the hard drive, reinstall your Windows operating system, and install any software and programs that came with the system. If you no longer have your master set-up CD, you should contact the manufacturer to get a replacement.


How to Format without a Recovery Disk:

If you aren't using this type of mass-market system, then a hard drive format will consist of you formatting the hard drive manually, installing your Windows OS from CD, then installing your software programs and hardware drivers. Before you begin the formatting process, it is important to make sure you have all your driver CDs located, Windows CD and your software CDs to ensure a smooth set-up.
It's also important to know about your operating system before you format. For example, if you're going to be reinstalling an older version of the operating such as Windows 98 or Windows ME then you should have a Windows 98 or ME start-up disk to complete the procedure. In this instance, you would restart the system with the start-up floppy in the drive. Upon system boot, you will choose to have CD-ROM support. Once the files load you can then choose to run the format command on your main drive (usually C drive). If you are using Windows 2000, Windows XP or Windows Vista the Windows installation process offers "format your hard drive" as an option. Here you would ensure your computer is set to boot from CD-ROM (a setting in your system BIOS), insert the Windows CD and restart the computer. From there you will be on your way to reformatting.

As you can see there are many options to formatting a hard drive. Hopefully this gives you a good understanding that most of the operating systems today do the formatting for you, all you need to do is pick that option as you follow the onscreen steps when you install either your Restore, or Operating System.

Good Luck,

Mark

System error


That is an operating system error or glitch. You will need to run a repair with the recovery or operating system disc. At start up, press F12 to go to the boot menu, and with the disc in the drive, boot from the CD drive. Then follow the directions. You're going to want to do the repair from the second repair section, after it finds existing operating systems, not the first repair using the recovery console. If the repair doesn't take, then using the same process, you need to delete the existing operating system, reformat the hard drive and install a new operating system. If the hard drive won't format, or if you have any issues during or after the install, then the hard drive has failed and will need replaced.

Delete everything off


See the instructions below from the support website - you need the discs that came with your laptop. If you do not have them, find an OEM copy of your systems operating system and install. Be sure to download and install all driver software from the Fujitsu Website.

► Switch the notebook on.
► Follow the instructions on the screen.

Detailed PC knowledge is required for manual partitioning.
You must then reinstall all the drivers. Use the "Drivers & Utilities" CD provided.
