Did you make the backup discs as the system said before you used your computer. It sounds like the recovery is failing on the computer, and unless you made a set of those discs, you will have to call HP to order the recovery set.

I can not find the icon in the start menu to initiate the system recovery option


Hi,

If it is windows xp then the recovery option will be under pc help and tools ,this you can get it by clicking on start ???all programs ???pc help and tools.However if you are not able to find this option then simply turn the computer off and then disconnect all the external devices along with the internet cable and then as soon as you turn the computer on tap the f10 key repeatedly and then when you get the recovery page click on ok .Once you get the page where it has the advance option click on it and then select destructive recovery and then click next the recovery will start .

If you have windows vista then go to start and in the search bar type recovery manager and then click on it to start the recovery else instead of the f10 key tap the f11 key and then follow the same instruction as for the XP OPERATING SYSTEM.

Hope this helps you ,all the best
