If you are going to reformat your laptop you are defiantly going to need the installer disk to install the OS again.
If you simply want to backup documents you can easily do that by copying the desired files to an external hard drive. If you want more advanced backup options i would recommend looking at Acronis True Image it is a really impressive backup solution.

Hello, I have a ASUS u43f-bba6 laptop. I accidentally pressed f9 during boot and I was taken to the asus system recovery screen. I pressed cancel when prompted to continue. The CPU just hangs in this...

If you can access the bios battery try resetting the bios by removing it . leave off for about a minute then replace. This will not affect your files.

I have an Acer Laptop with Windows Xp.... when i start my computer says |Be_$|Be_$| and i can't use it, what that mean?

LOL, I don't know what that mean!!! Maybe you should just get an operating system disk and reinstall it. You can do a Repair Install so that you don't lose any of your data.

What does this mean? "the hard disk's database will be rebuilt"will it reformat? i have plenty of saved files and i dont wanna lose them :(

No, it will not reformat. It was just shut off improperly or had issues shutting down. You won't lose anything but it will take a few minutes to go through its own process. You should be concerned when this message pops up a lot. Never shut it off from the back, and give it pleanty of room to ventilate.

Give me a good rating if i've helped you! Thanks!

My laptop keeps saying no bootable divice found


I don´t know is your laptop older or is newest, but or you have trouble with you hard drive (see in bios,does you hard drive there), or you have trouble with system.
You can try repair installation (don´t lose your data), or you can install a new system.
Good luck, i hope so that I was helpful.

Will not load.

my old computer had a problem like this, i think the only way to fix a problem like this would be to reformat your hard drive and reinstall your operating system, which would delete everything on your hard drive...if you do not want to lose the files on your hard drive, you can hook up the hard drive to a different computer as a secondary drive and take the files you need off of it...then put the drive back in the original computer and reformat...after that just put back the files back on the original computer with a flash drive or an external hard drive...
cant think of another way to solve this
