Dell Inspiron 17 3721 :: Fails To Create Back Up Disks

Mar 25, 2013

I'm setting up a my new Dell Windows 8 laptop.Now, I'm trying to create a set of recovery disks in case anything goes wrong, I'm using Dells own software. Unfortunately there seems to be an issue with, in other words its pish, and it fails after creating the first disk when it needs to create four. Every time I put a second DVD in it just ejects with no error message.it seems that a lot of people around here are having the exact same issue. It wouldn't be such a problem if you could boot into the recovery partition by hitting f8 during boot, the only way you can access it,though, is by holding down shift in windows 8 and pressing restart which is absolutely no use if windows won't boot!! I've got a hold of Acronis True Image 2013.

My question is can I make recovery media by creating a boot disk and then creating and image of the PBR partition, which I'm sure holds the recovery data? I can't back up the whole system as there is now 120Gb in data on it. I don't wan to back up the whole system, I just want to be able to restore it to factory default,in case anything ever goes on it, by using DVD media.

Dell Inspiron 15 :: How To Install Recovery Data / Recovery Disks Onto Newly Partitioned Section Of Hard Drive

Mar 16, 2011

I recently purchased a Dell Inspiron 15 that came with the partitioned data recovery feature. I immediately created 2 recovery disks. Yesterday, I sectioned my active hard drive so that I could have, in effect, 2 hard drives. The newly partitionedsection of the hard drive is naturally blank and I would like to install my data recovery or disk recovery information on it.

HP/Compaq :: Want To Clean Up/format Presario C310 -- Use Recovery Disks Or Recovery Partition?

Aug 30, 2009

Ive just done a clean install of my Dell Vostro -- reinstalling vista and removing the recovery partition in the process. Outcome = a cleaner machine with none of the preinstalled bloatware/c**p from Dell. (first time Ive done anything like this, but followed a brill guide in the Dell section of this forum ).

Im about to tackle my Mums Compaq Presario C310EA. The aim is to remove all the rubbish she has accumulated over the years, incl any spyware/ adware she may have, and generally have a bit of a clean sweep. hopefully resulting in a faster laptop. Im backing up her data, and moving some of my Dads stuff somewhere else.

Basically I want to clean up as much as poss, but unfortunately she has no xp disk, just the recovery disks (cds) she burned when she first got the laptop.

As she has no xp disk I guess the best I can hope for is to reset the laptop to the factory settings (?) .. not ideal, but I dont think the (factory set) bloatware is too much of an issue for her shes not a heavy user.

Should I use the recovery partition for this, or do I need to use the cds she burned? .

Id like to know the best approach and cant seem to find a set of instructions to follow.

HP Pavilion 15-p189sa Recovery :: Back Up / Recovery Discs

Feb 3, 2015

I have been told that I must pay for a recovery disk when I buy this laptop (HP Pavilion 15-p189sa with Windows 8.1). I have also been told that I must buy it because when attempting to recover my laptop and reconfigure it to manufacture settings, this can only be done once.
 
Once this has been done, it cannot be done more than once unless I have a back-up/recovery disc/USB that PC world are offering.whether it is possible for me to make my own recovery disc/USB  and avoid this 'once-only' limit? Or do I need to buy one from a store?

Sony :: No Hdd And No Recovery Disks

Apr 21, 2009

I have a friend's Sony Vaio VGN-FZ11M. Over a year old, if not 2. I need to fix it.

All looks fine except the HDD. I took out the HDD and tested it, it makes funny noises and 'click-click-click' noises which tells me the HDD has gone.

I want to buy a new HDD. Ok, but I have no recovery CDs nor (obviously) backup recovery partition. What is best/safest/easiest/quickest option I have?

you may create a second set of recovery disks if you delete all instances of the file: hpcd.sys

I did create a set of recovery disks, I did delete all instances of hpcd.sys. When I attempt to create a set of disks, it says "A set of recovery disks has been created for this PC. Only one set is allowed per PC."

I wanted to restore my Sony Z only to find out that the first of my recovery DVDs hangs after about 3/4 of the installation.

Would anyone be kind enough burn a set for me? I'm happy to pay something for it (though not the outrageous 40 pounds Sony wants to charge me).

Acer :: Tried Running The Recovery Disks It Kept Saying There Was No Appropriate Partition

Feb 27, 2010

I have a bit older Acer Extensa 4620Z - quite a while back (probalby 9 months) i had problems with it and it stopped working, couldnt find operating system or hard drive. I finnally decided to buy a new hard drive for it once i found out it was that the hard drive had died. I got my new seagate harddrive and installed it - I also order recovery disks from Acer so I could get my system back up and running.

This is where my problem is. I can see the harddrive from bios and at first when i tried running the recovery disks it kept saying there was no appropriate partition. I made a bootable copy of a program so I could create partitions on the harddrive. I did this and then tried running the recovery disks. This time it went further and started the recovery process but everytime it gets to D1E4T303.044 in the process (at 47%) - it stops... and sits there a second and then either jumps to 100% and starts over or an error pops up (error: 0xD000001D).

I can not figure out where to go from here - isn't there some way I can use the recovery disks to get my system up and running on the new hard drive?

Sony :: Installing Vista On New Hdd From Recovery Disks

Feb 13, 2009

Been nosing around the forum to try to find the answer before asking, but i really couldn't find any, so here goes!

I just got a new 7200rpm 320gb from WD to replace my old drive . I replaced it, boot the laptop (VGN-CR31S) as usual,

and put the first recovery DVD in the tray. Unfortunately, when it gets to the options menu,

I can't get it to install, it keeps asking for the right volume or cd/dvd. I thought the recovery dvds would be able to install everything from scratch ..

Acer :: How Many Copies Of The Recovery Disks Can I Make

May 23, 2009

I've had the impression that restore disks could only be made once, since I first had a Lenovo that told me I could only make the recovery disks once, due to the Windows licensing, I think. Does Acer also give you a limit to how many copies you can make or not?

Sony :: Creating Recovery Disks For VGN-NS110E

Jun 8, 2009

I have formatted my drive and installed fresh copy of Vista and I forgot to backup my data.

I have recovered this partition labeled Compaq Diagnostics. Would that be the recovery image for my laptop? I have copied this partition onto an external drive. My question now is what is the next step to do in order to create the recovery disks? Do I boot and try F10? Will that look at the files for recovery that are now on an external drive?

Sony :: Creating Recovery Disks...only Using One Disk

Apr 28, 2009

I hear it is possible to create a recovery disk on only one DVD-R for my Vaio laptop. I lost my disks and need to recreate them, but the recovery app fails after a few disks.

What I need to know is what type of DVD-R can I buy that would have the capacity to hold all the recovery disks data?

HP/Compaq :: Dv5-1102tx- Making Another Set Of Recovery Disks

Mar 14, 2009

I'm using a HP Pavilion dv5-1102tx Entertainment Notebook. I bought this notebook at the end of January 2009.

After reading many threads telling me to create recovery disks, I decided to create a set for myself. "Yay!" I said to myself when the process was all done.

Then, I went to the drivers/software download page for my laptop, and lo and behold, I found a patch that, quote "corrects the information that is burned to the User Created Recovery Disc (UCRD)." unquote.

The link is here: [url]

Now, seeing as I can't create another set of recovery disks, I have 2 questions:

1) Is there a way for me to make the computer allow me to burn another set of recovery disks after I installed the patch?

2) Do I need to install the patch at all?

Acer :: Aspire 5536G Can't Make Recovery Disks

Jul 1, 2009

I just purchased this model from my local Best Buy, and after having valiantly turned down their $150 set-up fee, I decided to try my hand at making the recover disks myself. Obviously, I failed miserably.

Here's my problem: using the eRecovery program on the laptop, I've tried burning a default factory disk using several types of CD's and DVD's but each time, the program rejects my disks and asks for a blank one. The error code that comes up is Error 0x205.

I've looked at the Acer Europe website, but I have not come to any conclusion as to how to fix this problem. My software seems to be up to date but could it be a faulty optical drive?

I have an Acer Aspire One Netbook SNID 20206697434 with Windows 7. I bought the recovery disks because eRecovery stalls at Office 2010 but the disks do exactly the same thing - I can only open in Safe Mode. I've tried many times with the same result. Even though I bought the disks, Acer Customer Service won't let me talk to a tech because my net book is not unwarranty - mfg date is 1/14/2012.

Dell :: 1737 Studio

Jul 26, 2009

I'm looking for a notebook, the two things that are most important to me are screen size and performance. My computer usage is mainly websurfing, photos, music, IM'ing, that kinda stuff. I'm a huge multi-tasker, somehow I always end up with 1000 windows and programs open, I need a computer that can deal with that. I don't think I've ever played a game on a computer, so gaming is a complete non-issue.

I live a pretty mobile life, hence my desire for a laptop. I'm drawn towards computers with asthetically pleasing features ie funky colours, light-up keyboards, etc. I know their functionality is limited, just what I like.

I found this one, [url]

it's refurb which is fine by me, I don't know much about computer numbers (I'm trying to learn as fast as I can) but this one seems to be up my alley, I really dig the red too, plus the half price from OEM. Others I've looked at are the alienware m17 and the dell XPS 1730, although it doesn't look like Dell is selling that from their canadian site anymore.

Dell :: Studio 1737

Oct 1, 2009

I decided to redo another thread about Windows XP Pro 32-bit drivers that will work with the Studio 1737 Laptop. These drivers may work with the 1735, 1555, and 1535 lines as well (except for the Chipset).

Please note the components of the system I purchased. (Below) If you have any of the same components, then you're good to go. I'll post other drivers as well that I find along the way in this journey of getting the Studio line to function properly on Windows XP Pro 32-bit.

My Studio 1737 main components purchased in Sept, 2009.
Intel Core 2 Duo P7350, 2.0GHz, 1066Mhz, 3M L2 Cache
512MB ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650
Intel 5100 Wireless-N (1x2) Half Mini-Card
Broadcom ethernet
Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi MB (the particular Creative software I have will not install on XP, but the IDT Audio drivers are needed)
Back-lit Keyboard (no application for this in XP. Just press the FN and RIGHT arrow)

Also, I'd like to add these observations.
1. Touch Pad (black plate above the keypad) -- The Volume, Pause, Stop, Eject controls work, but the Volume Up and Down ONSCREEN Diagram doesn't appear. BUT IT DOES WORK, JUST KEEP TAPPING THE VOLUME BUTTONS, and you'll notice the Volume fluctuates.
2. For Battery and Power Screen brightness to be the same... Press FN and the UP/Down Key. Then unplug Power cord, and repeat for the brightness to be the same when unplugged.
3. For Back Lit Keyboard to work...Press FN and the RIGHT ARROW. Repeat this action to dim, and turn off.

Dell :: XP 64 Bit On My Studio 1737

Jan 21, 2009

I searched on the site for an answer but did not find anything so I am creating this thread.

I know there is a lot out there about XP on the 1737 and driver issues and such..most of which seems not insurmountable.

I am concerned about this ATA/AHCI thing...in the bios for the SATA hard drives.
