    What brand and model is your notebook?

    Many companies have stopped sending recovery software on disk and placed that data in a separate partition on the hard drive. This varies by brand and model.

Please provide with make and model number. You might want to contact the manufacture for the disk. Sometimes they require to buy the disk. They should have provided you with recovery disk. Also it's best to ask for install disk when you purchase the notebook. It is common they don't because it saves them money.

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.

Contacting Support
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: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.

    My Acer 5100 PC Notebook will load past my user account, but then all it shows is an blank, black screen and the cursor. I've tried rebooting it in all sorts of ways but nothing seems to work. i also tried...

    When you boot the machine tap the F8 (this is usually the correct key but some systems vary) and see if you can boot up in safe mode. If you get to safe mode try creating a new user by going to Start>Control Panel> Users ( in classic mode for control panel) and create a new user. If the problem doesn't occur in the new account you have a virus of some kind. Possibly a rootkit.

    If you need more help please let me know. I don't know your level of computer experience so I don't have any idea as to what you might know how to do or not, as the case may be.

    Useing toshiba recovery media center to create a back up of the computer 1/4 of the way through error code: 020123-F1-00000000

    Hi, I bought a new Toshiba L850 today, installed Windows 7 (64 bit) and immediately attempted to create recovery discs (on quality Imation DVDs). I got the error described above and googled this site.This error prevents you from creating recovery discs. I have contacted both Toshiba support and support for the franchise that I bought the computer at. On another site a user reported the same problem and also contacted Toshiba support - "The second technician I talked gave me 3 options: send in the computer at a shipping cost (about $25), take it to the place I bought it, or pay for recovery disks ($29.95)". I'll be taking this computer back - it looks like it's broken out of the box.

    Issue with opticaldrive and creating factory default disc

    most of the time to create recovery disks you have to use about 7 cds, 2 DVDs, 1 blueray or double layer. some systems also use DVD+R, when you start the disk creation it would tell you what it requires, your best option (if compatible) would be using 2 DVDs-R. On the other hand if you inserted the cd and it turned a few revs. most likely it is ruined already so you have to use a new disk.
    if it is a brand new pc you should be able to use DVD. here is a tutorial for HP and it is pretty similar for most computers

    Where do i find recovery discs

    What kind of computer, how old, which operating system?

    Error Loading Operating System

    Do you still have the original recovery disc for the PC? If so, put that into the disc drive then boot the computer. It can help you either save the installed operating system or create a new one if there is a serious problem.

    This could also be due to a hard disk drive failure, in which case you'd be needing to get a new hard disk. Most of the time however, just a file allocation table messes up during a power down, or some other random problem happened and just caused a simple error on the drive. I'd definitely find that recovery disc. If nothing else, you can use google to search for recovery boot disks that you can download and burn to a CD using a different computer. They can help as well.
