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.

How can I reset my computer back to factory settings


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.

all the best ....

I am unable to recover my computer because it keeps asking for disc 1 which is corrupt, how can i get it to use the recovery from the hard drive when i use f10?


Hi ,

Let me tell you the steps to initiate the recovery from the hard drive.Turn the computer off and then disconnect any external devices connected to the computer like printer,usb storage devices and also the cable for the internet .Once that is done please do remember that as soon as you turn the computer off and then as soon as you release the power button after pressing it start tapping the f10 key without stopping until you get a blank screen that says system recovery.Follow the on screen instruction and then when you reach the page that says advance option click on it and then select destructive recovery and then click next.Recovery will start on its own and wait for it to reach 100% then it prompts you to restart the computer adn then when it comes back follow the onscreen instruction for the basic setup like selecting the the country time zome etc and then will take you to the desktop.
If the recovery does not work from the partiotion then you need to run it from the disc so please call up computer surgeons who deal with selling the recovery disks and the number is 1800-496-6127...

all the best ...

hope this helps
  • There are two ways to start the recovery -
    • Restart your computer. Then Press F10 repeatedly until the message "Starting System Recovery" is displayed.
    • In Windows by clicking: Start / All Programs / System Recovery / System Recovery.
  • The recovery will load and display a box with one option:
    • Non-destructive recovery: this option will restore Windows, supplied applications, and drivers. This option will not destroy your documents or programs. These will be backed up along with the registry. These are restored at the end of the recovery process.
    To access the recovery options below that erase all data from the computer, click the Advanced button.
    • System Recovery - No format: this will reinstall Windows, supplied applications and drivers. It will move your files to a folder called "My old disk structure". Any applications (except those supplied) will need to be reinstalled.
    • System Recovery - Quick format: this option will erase your hard drive including your personal files. Windows, supplied applications and drivers will be reinstalled.
  • Select the Non-destructive recovery option and press Next.
  • You will be informed about System Restore in Windows, click Yes.
  • The recovery will begin. Once this is complete click Restart.

Compaq evo d500 won't start up and won't let me access boot menu. just keeps saying keyboard fault even when another keyboard is used


press f10 during startup , when the bios open, look for the setting "halt on" . it will have a choice of keyboard, all errors or no errors , set it on "no errors" save and reboot. that may fix it.
You could also get another keyboard (neighbors or a new one) and test to see if a new keyboard solves the issue without recovering your system.
you can also use the recovery CD that came with your system:
USING THE RECOVERY CONSOLE TO REPAIR DAMAGED
FILES
If you cannot start your computer, you can run the Recovery Console from operating system CDROM
provided with the PC. To run the Recovery Console from the operating system CD-ROM:
NOTE: Make sure that the system is configured to boot first from the CD-ROM drive, then from
the hard drive. You can verify or change device boot order using the Computer Setup (F10) Utility.
For more information, refer to the Computer Setup (F10) Utility Guide provided with the
computer.
1. Insert the Windows 2000 or Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive.
2. Click Start > Shut Down, then select Restart from the drop-down list.
3. In the Shut Down Windows dialog, click OK.
4. Press any key to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive when you are prompted to do so.
5. On the Welcome to Setup page, press R.
6. Choose the installation that you want to access from the Recovery Console.
7. Type the administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, press the Enter key.
