Your pc might have the restore software already installed. Check your manual. If that doesn't get you anywhere, check the manufacturer's website.

Hp dc5800 recovery cd lost ibought new hd how could i make new recovery partition in the new hd?


There isn't any way to build a new recovery partition on a new empty hard drive. The recovery partition is put on when the drive is imaged at the manufacturer, but you don't have any source to copy from. If you don't have a recovery disc set, you have two options. The first option is to see if HP sells a recovery disc for your computer. It's unlikely, and expensive if they do have them available.

The second option is to do a fresh installation of Windows yourself. This is a little more work, but it's not difficult. You'll need a copy of Windows, the same version that came installed on the computer. (For a Vista machine, you just need the "Anytime Upgrade" DVD, which has all the Vista versions on it.) You'll also need to download any hardware drivers needed from HP's website. The installation is mostly automatic; you just need to enter the product key at some point, and you'll find that on the Windows sticker on the computer case. After Windows is done installing, install the hardware drivers and activate Windows. (When the recovery partition or a restore disc is used, the activation is automatic.)

Do you know where I can find a recovery disc for an HP 873n Media Center PC? I called hp and they don't have one.


Hi,
You are correct HP do not provide the recovery disks for this Media Center anymore.

I've just about searched the net for anyone who may have recovery CD's for sale but no no avail.

If you can still get into the operating system use HP Backup and Recovery Manager, its quick and user-friendly. To run, simply go to All Programs > HP Backup & Recovery > HP Backup and Recovery Manager. With HP Backup & Recovery Manager, file restoration is easy. To recover a deleted file, simply use the Restore Wizard.

For a full system restoration, press the F11 key during boot up and then select "Recover PC" from the menu if there is a recovery partition available (sometimes you have to hold down Ctrl and hit the F11 key on boot up)

Other than that you may have to purchase a Windows XP or Windows XP Media Center installation CD from a reputable store like PC World for example.

Good luck.

Reformated used HP recovery disc when I restart it says SW build ID different from ID on recovery media


You have 2 options. You can write to Microsoft or to HP about your Issue & they might be able to help about the ID issue. Best I would suggest you buy the OS. ( Full installation Pack) this way you have nothing to worry.

Hello,

You system is infected with a potent antivirus, and cannot be resolve anymore by a potent antivirus.

So you need to reinstall your computer to the original setting:

By doing this : insert the windows installation disk/ or the system recovery disk.
reboot your PC from the CD/DVD rom and then wait until boot finish.

If you are using system disk recovery , just read carefully the instruction on-screen.
If you are using the windows installation disk then here is the windows installation information: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/316941

May this help,

Have you tried the Compaq Application driver recovery?

Click on Start , All programs , and then Hewlett-Packard or Compaq .


NOTE: If the Hewlett-Packard or Compaq folder does not appear, skip to the next step.

Then, click on any of the folders below (just one of them will be available depending on the model of your computer):
  1. HP Pavilion PC Tools ,

  • Compaq Presario PC Tools ,
  • PC Help and Tools , or
  • PC Recovery Tools .
  1. Click HP or Compaq Application Recovery .
  2. Select Driver Installation and click Next .
Select which drivers are to be installed, If you don't have this console go to windows update to see if microsoft can auto update for you,
