Dell Inspiron 3520 :: Deleted Recovery System And Unable To Recover Windows
Mar 22, 2013
laptop inspiron 3520 deleted all recover system because unable to recover the OS..due to a malware attack which locked my laptop totally wiped out all the data in hard disk tried all the ways to recover. restore points..dell local safe backup..nothing worked out system recover nothing worked..finally lost the factory state of the laptop.hard disk is empty now.can the Dell recover my laptop back to factory state..? can dell provide me the windows 7 OS ... ?
I've made a backup when I bought the notebook Aspire V3-771G. After that, I've installed Win 7 with my own serial key. All partitions I deleted. Right now I want to recover system to factory default but I haven't recovery disk nor recovery partition. I've got only backup five files ended with .NFB extensión and one with .CAL extensión. I've tested ghost programs and backup software but none of them could read backup files. Is there any solution for this without buying the recovery disks ?
I reinstalled windows 7 home premium on my machine, using the same serial number as the one that came with the laptop (I found the serial number by downloading some software that scanned my computer and told me what it was).After installing windows, it told me that it was not genuine. I imagine that it is because it wasn't a version of Windows that has all that HP software pre-loaded on it. My hard drive still has a "recovery" partition, but what to do with that, or even if I can do anything with it anymore. So how can I make my Windows 7 home premium genuine? Do I have to reinstall another version of windows 7 home premium with the HP software included? Where do I find such download? Since I don't have a recovery disk, can I use that "recovery" partition of my hard drive for something?
I was installing Linux and by mistake I wiped out the entire disk inclusing the recovery partition with windows 8 installation stuff !! Do you know if it there is any way to get it back, downlading it from somewhere and installing ? I searched on the Lenovo website but didn't find any clue....
I think I have a hard disk failure or error. It states the disk name:TOSHIBA MQ01ABF050 and the volume C:;D: . I have a HP Pavilion TS Sleekbook 14 with windows 8.1 (I upgraded from the Windows 8 which came in with the laptop) and I unknowingly created a recovery image on a Windows 8 compatible usb successfully when I was already experiencing problems with my laptop hard drive. I later found out that it is not recommended to create a recovery image on a windows 8 compatible usb.
I'm hoping to just go back to factory settings and wipe out all my files if that can get my laptop back in working condition as I have already backed up my important documents to USB. My following question's are
1.) Will the recovery image that I created with the usb that's windows 8 compatible not work if I try to do a factory reset? 2.) Will the recovery image that I created while having the errors already, be techically "clean," meaning it has all the necessary components for a running laptop once I replace my hard drive or do a recovery with the current hard drive in place? 3.) Will I be able to restore from the recovery partition? or does the hard disk failure affect that drive as well?
My USB flash drive is also compatible with windows 8 AND 7. Is it possible to just transfer it to just a windows 7 compatible usb if I'll encounter problems due to the windows 8 compatibility of the flash drive I've used for the recovery image creation.
I may have destroyed the recovery partition when I used EaseUS Partition Master to split the C: partition into two partitions. How to recover the partitions necessary for recovery? When I do to Advanced Startup, I do not get a 'Troubleshoot' option.
recently i purchased one dell inspiron 3520 laptop,but some of my software is not compatible with windows 8 operation system. where i can get the drivers for windows xp sp3 and i want to have dual operating system on laptop windows 8 with windows xp sp3.
It has occurred to me that there's an issue with either my Dell Inspiron 3520 Laptop Computer or my Windows 8.1/Windows 8 OS. Occasionally, running the computer (sometimes when it's overheating or just when unplugging the laptop), the computer just crashes, i.e. Screen goes black, power light and HDD light stays on for a about 2 seconds before powering off. No blue screen, no warning, no updates. There's was no reason for it to go off, but it did. It's frustrating because:
1.) When I'm working/playing a game/hosting a multi-player server, the computer tends to crash in the middle of it causing my work to go to waste.
2.) I believe it will damage my laptop and cause further problems in the future
I've researched a bit about this issue before and people have said that it's due to overheating, but I have proven that this is not the case for me as I have placed my PC beside a fan where it kept a steady temperature of about 50-65 Degrees Celsius and I've still faced the issue.
I bought a dell inspiron 3520 recently. It has windows 8 installed. When i try to activate Microsoft office, it asks me for product key. My laptop does not have a COA sticked to it and i did not get a MPI card with the package delivered where this info is available.
I bought DELL Inspiron 15r N7520 a year back with windows 8 in it, since then I am continuously facing multiple issues , I updated my windows 8 to 8.1 so it was asking for key I searched a lot but never found any sticker on laptop or any CD , I found no way to go back so I tried installing another windows by boot and while doing so I face so many problems at last I went to command prompt diskpart and CLEAN ALL . It removed each and everything I have no way to recover refresh or any other. No option seems to be working for me. And even I don't have dell backup and recovery. If I try to insall windows8 by DVD it gives an error of key doesn't match . Is there any way to install windows without sending my laptop to Dell ?
I am working on an Envy Pro 4-b000. The hard drive has failed. I have a replacement drive on the way, but I did not create a recovery disk when the laptop was purchased. It had windows 7 - 64 bit on it previously. What are my options to getting recovery media for this laptop?
I inadvertently upgraded to Windows 8.1 which I had been trying to avoid doing and don't know how it happened as I had continually knocked back prompts to upgrade. I originally did upgrade to 8.1 last year and had such major graphics issues I eventually restored factory settings to get back to Windows 8 which solved all the issues. Now the same problems are happening i.e. breaking up of the screen with loads of horizontal lines running across it.
I downloaded all the updated drivers I could from the Dell site but the graphics driver and video driver would not work and I kept getting the message that the laptop was not compatible with the downloads. It is a Dell Inspiron 3520 and the recommended drivers just will not install. I don't want to have to go through all the hassle of restoring factory settings again. I am sure the problem is with these 2 drivers mainly the NDJN4 video driver.
I have a Dell Inspiron 1720 with Windows Vista. The Windows is dead and always boots to a repair dialog that gives me only two options: reboot and shutdown. It also does that when trying to bot in Safe Mode. So I tried to boot on the recovery partition to try to recover my installation. The problem I have now is that the recover option needs my administrator password. I've tried 3 wrong passwords since I really don't remember it. After the third fail, I got a dialog telling me that my administrator account as been disabled! WHAT!! It disabled the only account I need to recover or reinstall!! How can I recover my PC now!!?
I am unable to use recovery center within windows because I cannot see the buttons (next, back, cancel, etc). They are off in the corner of the window but can't scroll over to see them:
I have installed the update to v1.3.5, but it did not fix this problem. Does anyone have a screenshot of the buttons so I can get through it? I have tried tabbing and pressing "N" for next, which works sometimes but not when I need it to work. It actually resulted in UNinstalling a program that I was trying to re-install.
I just purchased a new Pavilion m7-1015dx Laptop and need to make the System Recovery Discs ... (which I realize restores the Laptop to factory default).. btw, I've already created the System Repair Disc.
However, I read an article about creating a System Backup Image that allows you to Recovery EVERYTHING if lost, all your installed programs, etc.
First Question ::: if I do the System Backup IMAGE ... Do I still need to create the System Recovery disc's (mfg's default) also??
The Second Question ::: If I create the System Recovery discs do I still need that Recovery Partition ??
I am really really wanting to partition my C: drive ... it's huge plus I hate seeing storage folders intermingled with system folders .. Currently using a Symbol/Character to separate them.
As of now, I can't partition the C:drive as all partitions are used.. max is 4 and I've got 4 .... C:drive, System Partition, HPTools Partition, and Recovery Partition.
i have a Dell M5040 when i launch Dell Datasafe 2.0 the section to create Recovery Media has both the USB and CD/DVD grayed out. How do I reset Datasafe in case there was a limit to create only 1 copy of the recovery cds (which are no where to be found)?
I have upgraded my Acer Travel Mate 4061 to 2GB Ram windows 7 64 bit. My internal DVD/CD rom is not functioning and unable to use my recover disks. . Any USB compatible EXTERNAL DVD/CD player to enabe the use of recovery discs...
