This is a very serious problem encountered while partitioning a hard disk. Chances are, your data may be lost. But you still have several options.

1. Insert a windows xp setup cd and boot from it, then select Repair from the menu. Follow the instructions after that, and then when you get to the command prompt c:, type chkdsk c: /r then press Enter. After the checking is complete, type exit and press Enter to restart your notebook.

2. If that doesn't work, you can try running recovery software. Try looking in the internet for hiren boot cd, as it contains a recovery software. But have a usb flash drive or usb external drive so you'll have a place to put in your recovered files.

You will need the rescue disc that you should have created BEFORE you attempted to partition also partitioning a hard drive whilst on battery power alone was a very foolish thing to do. install the partition software you used on another pc and create a recovery disc with it. Then put that into the laptop and boot from it, hopefully it will attempt to recover the lost partitions, but dont be too hopeful of it actually doing it

Trying to restore back to factory settings


System Recovery
When you've tried other methods of repairing your
system software (like System Restore or Application
Recovery), you may want to use the Compaq System
Recovery program as a last resort to reinstall the software.
When necessary, you can reinstall the operating system and
the application software that was originally installed on the
PC at the factory by using the System Recovery program.
WARNING: The Compaq System Recovery
program will delete any data or programs
that you installed after purchase. Be sure to
back up any data that you want to keep onto
a removable disc.
The System Recovery program uses a special recovery
partition on the hard disk drive that stores an image of the
original software.
NOTE: The System Recovery image is in a partition area
of the hard disk drive and takes up part of the total drive
space. This disk space is not usually available for your use.
In the unlikely event that you replace the hard disk drive,
or somehow damage the data in the special recovery
partition on the hard disk drive, use recovery discs to
reinstall the operating system and software on the hard disk
drive. See "System Recovery Using Recovery Discs."
Make your own recovery discs (CDs or DVDs) before you
need them; see "Creating Recovery CDs/DVDs." You can
also make the Recovery Tools CD. This CD contains utilities
that allow you to make changes to your hard disk drive; see
"Using the Recovery Tools CD."
Starting System Recovery
if the PC Is Responding
1 Turn off the PC. Disconnect all peripheral devices from
the PC except the monitor, the keyboard, and the mouse.
Turn on the PC.
2 Click Start on the taskbar, choose All Programs,
choose PC Help & Tools, and then click Compaq
System Recovery.
3 Wait until the System Recovery window appears asking
Do you really want to start System Recovery?
4 Click Yes to continue with the recovery process. If you
created recovery discs, you may be directed to insert
recovery disc #1. If the Recovery disc is a DVD, be sure
to put the disc in a DVD drive.
5 The PC starts the recovery; wait for the onscreen
instructions to display, and then follow those instructions.
6 Complete the PC startup, finish the registration process,
and wait until you see the desktop. Then, turn off the PC,
reconnect all peripheral devices, and then turn on the PC.
Starting System Recovery if the PC
Is Not Responding
1 Turn off the PC. If necessary, press and hold the On
button until the PC turns off.
2 Disconnect all peripheral devices from the PC except the
monitor, the keyboard, and the mouse.
3 Press the On button to turn on the PC.
4 During the startup, do the following to enter the System
Recovery program:
When the black screen with the Compaq logo appears,
press the F10 key on the keyboard. (You have only a few
seconds to press the F10 key before the normal startup
process continues.)
5 The PC starts the recovery; wait for the onscreen
instructions to display, and then follow those instructions.
6 Complete the PC startup, finish the registration process,
and wait until you see the desktop. Then, turn off the PC,
reconnect all peripheral devices, and turn on the PC.

My note book stopped recognizing the hard disk model no. HS122JF from samsung


Form my experience it's a early sign of any issue in Hard Disk circuit. It'll be best if take backup of your data and take the hard disk to a hardware technician as early as possible. Otherwise you may loose your data.

How can you use the recovery disk in drive D ?


It is referring to using the recovery disk in the cd/dvd drive. When you purchased the computer it should have come with a set of recovery disks (some manufatureres do this by installing a recovery partition). If you did not get a set of recovery disks with this machine, you need to use the recovery partition.

I want to downgrade my desktop acer aspire x1800 vista to xp pro everytime i run set-up it always showing me an error could not proceed,.


Most like ly the hard drive has a Vista recovery partition. That partition has got to be deleted. You'll need to open a command prompt and follow the guide very carefully or irreperable damage could occur.

Here’s the trick to delete and remove the EISA recovery or diagnostic partition in Vista. Before proceeding with the deletion action, make sure that at least a set of Recovery Disc Media has been created. Else, you won’t be able to restore your computer to working and factory default condition when any problem on PC requires reinstallation.
  1. Open a command prompt as administrator.
  2. Run Diskpart application by typing Diskpart in the command prompt.
  3. In the “Diskpart” prompt, enter rescan command and press Enter key to re-scan all partitions, volumes and drives available.
  4. Then type in list disk and press Enter key to show all hard disk drive available.
  5. Select the disk that contains the partition you want to remove. Normally, with just 1 hard disk, it will be disk 0. So the command will be:
select disk 0
Finish by Enter key.
  1. Type list partition and press Enter key to show all available and created partition in the disk selected.
  2. Select the partition that wanted to be deleted by using the following command, followed by Enter key:
select partition x
where x is the number of the EISA based recovery partition to be removed and unlocked its space. Be careful with the number of this partition, as wrong number may get data wipes off.
  1. Finally, type in delete partition override and press Enter key.
Once the partition has been deleted, exit from Diskpart, and now users can use the much familiar and much easier Disk Management tool in Windows (diskmgmt.msc) to manipulate the freed unallocated partition. Users can create a new volume (partition) with this space, or simply merge it to existing partition by extending the size of the existing partition.
