You can, but your pc should have came with a protected partition, you should be able to restore from this partition.

    Well yes, if the partition is not working then I would contact the manufacturer and they should send you the installation disc's.

  • trapper704 Mar 28, 2011

    I went to HP site looks like they no longer offer a1600n restore disks

  • garciael82 Mar 28, 2011

    Yeah usually on there site they will show that they no longer support it, but if you call and explain the situation they will usually help you out. Now if you cannot get them to get you the disc's find someone with a windows xp disc(assuming you are using windows xp) and install, then use the code on the sticker on the computer case.

  • garciael82 Mar 28, 2011

    Have you tried to create your own recovery disc's?

  • trapper704 Mar 28, 2011

    This is something I should of done at some point. Computer will not boot into windows. Loaded an older version of XP home with limited luck i do see the partition but it will not boot tried both types of keyboards p2 and USB F10 recovery will not work. All 8Gb or so of files seem to reside in the partition

  • garciael82 Mar 28, 2011

    Ok then i would download linux ubuntu onto a disk and run it from the disc. You can then get the information off of the windows partition(move it to an external hard drive) once your information is safe, then i would reformat with windows and just start with a new install, this should fix the problem. The ubuntu website will guide you through creating a live disc. If you do not have another computer, maybe you can ask a friend to create this for you.

Where is the reset button


If you mean how do you return to factory condition, press F11 just before it boots and follow the prompts.

HP recovery discs can be used to return a computer's software configuration to its original condition. HP provides a recovery solution on the hard drive, but it is still a good idea to keep recovery discs stored in a safe place in the event of a hard drive failure. Use the sections in this document to obtain a recovery solution that works best for you.
note.png
NOTE:HP computers designed for commercial use, such as Workstations or Pro series, use "Operating System" or "HP Restore Plus" DVDs. To order these types of discs, go to the HP Replacement Part Store . Recovering your computer without recovery discs You may not need recovery discs to recover the software on your computer. HP provides a recovery solution on a separate area of the hard drive. If the hard drive is still functional, you can still perform an HP system recovery from the hard drive as long as the recovery information has not been destroyed or corrupted.
To do a software recovery from the hard drive, turn on the computer and repeatedly press the F11 key until "Windows is loading files..." displays on the screen. If your computer originally came with Windows XP or earlier, press F10 to enter recovery instead of F11.

    I am delete my one key recovery partion.so i cannot access my one key recovery button....please tell me how can i reactive my one key recovery button tyo restore the operating system...


    If you deleted your recovery partition, you will need your recovery discs in order to properly restore your recovery partition. Depending on the manufacturer of the computer depends on how you would access these discs. If they did NOT come with your computer you will need to contact the company and order them. Otherwise you can pop in the first of however many discs into your optical drive (cd / dvd), and when the computer turns on (the first screen) look for something that says "Press F(number 1-12) to access boot menu"
    You will then need to reboot your machine, press the F key that it dictates, and then boot from the particular DVD / CD drive that your recovery disc is in using the arrow keys. Please ensure all of your data is already backed up, as using the recovery discs will remove all data on your computer. Good luck!

    My pc is lock .my dauther try to many password


    Some times the CAPS Lock key may be on, so please make sure that the CAPS Lock key is off.

    If the issue still exists, I request you to perform the full system recovery using the recovery disks. To perform this full system recovery, you can use the recovery disks that you have created using the recovery partition.
    Use the recovery discs to restore the PC by following the steps below:
    1. Insert the recovery disc in the optical disc drive and start the computer.
    If the computer is running, insert the recovery disc and immediately click Start and select Restart to force the computer to start from the recovery disc.
    2. When prompted, Press any key to boot from CD or DVD, press any key on the keyboard.
    3. Allow the recovery disc to start and load the required files while the Microsoft loading screen is displayed. It may take several minutes to load the required files.
    4. When the HP Recovery Manager window displays, click Advanced options , System recovery , and then click Next to open the Recovery Manager.
    5. Follow the on-screen instructions and perform the required actions.
    NOTE: Do not interrupt the recovery process even though the computer may restart and the Windows desktop may display at various times.
    · When prompted, follow the on-screen instructions to Backup the user files.
    After performing the backup, when prompted, re-insert the recovery disc, and then click Next to continue the recovery process.
    · A status box is displayed to indicate the status of the recovery and the estimated time remaining.
    · If you used multiple discs when you created the personalized recovery discs, follow the prompts to remove the first disc and insert any requested discs.
    6. When prompted to Insert the Supplemental driver disc , take one of the following actions:
    · If you purchased a replacement recovery disc from HP, and it included a Supplemental driver disc, insert the disc and click OK or Next . The recovery program checks the supplemental disc and installs the specific needed files.
    After the Supplemental files are installed, a prompt is displayed to remove the Supplemental disc and insert the original recovery disc.
    · If you purchased a replacement recovery disc from HP, and it did not include a Supplemental driver disc, click Skip or Cancel . The recovery program will ignore the request and install the next file on the recovery disc.
    · If you created a personal recovery disc, press Next to continue.
    7. Continue following the on-screen instructions to complete the recovery process.
    NOTE: If you have not created a personal recovery disc, or the recovery disc fails or become corrupted, see HP Notebook PCs - Order Recovery Discs for Vista as your notebook is preinstalled with Genuine Windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 1.

    Wish to make a recovery disk


    Toshiba usually ships laptops with recovery cd/dvd sets.
    If you have captioned recovery set, make sure to make a backup copy.
    If this series no has recovery cd/dvd, must be a hidden partition for recovery in the hard drive. For make a recovery disc find the sotware loaded in the laptop (must be there) and make a recovery disc set. Be aware that some manufacturers limit the use of this particular software (you only can make one cd/dvd recovery set).
    In the worst scenario that the recovery partition is no present you must load Norton Ghost v14.0 and make a full backup to one external hard drive (USB) in order to recover te operative system, drivers and software in case of disaster.

    I hope this help you to solve the problem.

    HP MEDIA CENTER 864N Desktop PC&p RECOVERY CD


    NOTE: Most HP and Compaq desktop PCs that ship with Windows Vista and XP do not come with recovery discs. Instead, they use a hidden space (partition) on the hard drive to store the recovery information. Using a hidden partition provides a convenient, more stable recovery solution.
    Step 1: Create a set of recovery discs or a recovery DVD
    To create the recovery disc set, Click Start , All Programs , PC Help & Tools (or similar), open the HP or Compaq Recovery CD-DVD Creation software, and follow the on-screen directions.
    If you cannot create recovery discs or your discs have become damaged, continue to the next step.
    Step 2: Order recovery CDs on the Web
    If you are not able to create a set of recovery discs, you may be able to order a set of replacement discs from HP. HP maintains a stock of replacement recovery discs for several years after the product has been released. However, because of licensing restrictions, HP is only able to provide these recovery discs for a limited time. If your computer is several years past its warranty period, HP may not be able to supply replacement discs for your computer. If this is the case, you can install a new operating system that meets the minimum system requirements of your computer, or, alternatively, upgrade your computer hardware.
    To find out if HP has recovery discs that you can order and to order them from HP, use the following steps:
    NOTE: The steps in this section apply to United States and Canada. For Europe, Middle East, and Africa please refer to the HP support document Europe, Middle East, and Africa - Statement on the Availability of the Recovery Software on CD . For other countries/regions, contact your local HP support center for information about obtaining recovery CDs.
    Go to the Software & Driver Downloads page .
    Enter the product number or model name for your computer into the field provided.
    Figure 1: Product name/number field
    7195023.gif
    Click the operating system link (the version of Windows that came with your computer).
    Figure 2: Example of operating system link
    f96d267.gif
    Find the Recovery Disc ordering section and click the link to start the ordering process.
    NOTE: Before trying to order, make sure that you have read the important "Read this..." information listed in this Recover Disc ordering section.
    Note: - If the link to order a recovery disc set is not available, there may not be any more sets available for purchase. HP cannot create recovery discs that contain a version of Windows that has been obsoleted by Microsoft, such as Windows 95, 98, and Me. Some recovery disc sets may have run out of stock and may not be available to order.
    Figure 3: Recovery disc ordering links
    7640107.gif
    Follow the directions from the "Read this...” article and from the ordering pages to complete the ordering process.
    NOTE: The ordering pages use a secure connection to protect your privacy.
    If you cannot create a recovery disc set and you cannot order a recovery disc set from HP, go to the next step.
    Step 3: Contact Support
    If you have tried the steps 1 and 2 and could not create or obtain a recovery disc set, contact HP Customer Care . HP Customer Care may be able to send out new discs or replace defective versions depending on your situation and availability.
