    Hi,



    It will be great if you can elaborate on the issue with more information like the Brand and model of your notebook. That really helps us to provide the exact solutions.



    Anyhow, taking 30min to boot into windows is really strange issue. If the issue is same even after reinstalling the OS, then the issue could be with the harddrive or with other computer components.



    Few laptop manufacturers like HP provides a Utility in BIOS to check the harddrive status. Check for those options and perform the harddrive seld test. If the test fails, then you have to replace the harddrive. If it pass, then you have to send your notebook for repair at service center.

How to format my hard drive in dos


Rita,

Most computer recovery disks will perform the formatting for you. (This depends on the Manufacturer and Model though...)

If you put the recovery disk into the computer CD/DVD Drive and restart the computer - to boot to the disk, it should launch the recovery process and warn you that the hard drive will be erased and all data will be lost. This warning step is the recovery disks way of informing you that it will format the drive.

To boot to the CD/DVD you will need to tell the computer to do that. When the computer first turns on, you should see a brief message at the very beginning of the boot up process. The message will say something like: "Press Del for Boot Device" or "Press F12 for Boot Menu" or something of this sort. If your recovery disk is in the drive and you can get to the boot menu by pressing the key the computer prompts you to press, then you should be able to start up with that recovery disk.

Allowing the recovery disk to run through it's full process should format the hard drive and set your computer straight.

Make sure to run all of your updates once the recovery is complete and also make sure to install and update a good anti-virus software of some sort.

In acer laptop i am getting blue screen error code is 0000000007


Try to restart the computer in Last known good configuration from the Advance boot options by restarting the computer using F8 key continuously.
If doesn't work then put in the Windows CD.
If Windows XP :
Restart the computer and keep tapping F12.
From boot menu highlight CD/DVD or IDE CD ROM or USB CD ROM.
Keep on pressing enter on it until get the screen loading files.
Then on the first Welcome page press "R"
If you have a dual-boot or multiboot system, select the installation that you want to access from the Recovery Console.
Enter the Admin password if dont have any password then leave blank and press enter.
Then type the command chkdsk drive /p /r
(drive is the partition on which windows is installed, C: or D:)
It will take around 30 to 45 mins to complete then restart the computer.

The problem of my hp pavilion dv5 is this, i want my laptop to be back on its original state so i tried system restore. i have my recovery discs aside from the built-in recovery partition. i inserted the...


You have formatted the hard drive (containing Boot Manager) using recovery disk 1.
That's why the error message.

Just insert disk 1 again.
Shut down the computer (press & hold the power button for a minute).
Restart.

Follow the instructions that come up.

If it doesn't help, reseat the hard drive. (open the back cover, take out hard drive, reconnect it)
Also you may go to BIOS (tap F1 while booting) and set the cd-drive as the first boot device.

Hope it helps.

Error message NTLDR missing on formatted hard drive


You need to either reinstall windows, or take the hard drive out, hook it up as a spare drive to a working computer and copy NTDLR to the root of the laptop hard drive. It would be much easier to reinstall windows. You can always use the recovery portion of Windows, but if I were you I would just do a format and reinstall. NTDLR is just a startup file for Windows XP, that does not mean your hard drive is gone or anything. Please don't forget to rate!..Thanks

When i do the recovery cd and system cd - the acer notebook have a error #49 write fault message


Hi there.
There is a strong possibility that the hard drive has bad sectors on it so the recovery CD cannot format it or cannot write to the hard drive.
If the PC is still under manufacturers warranty i recommend you take take advantage of that, if not then take the hard drive out of the laptop, attach it to another computer as a slave device and try to format it, if it formats put it back in run the recovery CD again, but this time just install the OS don't format it.
If symptoms persist consider using a new hard drive.

Please post back with the results and thanks for using FixYa!!

How to use my recovery discs?


They should be in a bootable disc format and numbered. You will want to either enter the boot menu at start up or set the CD drive to boot before the hard drive in the boot order from the bios or set up. If you go from the boot menu then you will put the disc in the drive and select the CD drive. If you do the boot order, you will need the disc in the drive when you start the machine. If the discs are numbered, start with number one, boot it, and follow the directions.
