HP/Compaq :: System Recovery Failed CQ61


My Compaq Presario CQ61-110SA kept on crashing wiht the blue screen error so yesterday i had some time on my hands so i thought I would do a full system recovery in order to stop this nuisence from happening, however I wish I had read the problems associated with the HP recovery manager first as now I have no OS and a recovery manager that dosn't work.

At the moment I am using the recovry manger pre installed on the hard drive however it gets to installing the drivers, and after about an hour a pop up comes up for about half a second saying a about a driver install or dont install (it looks similair to th etype of pop up on vista when a new program wants to run) however due to it poping up so quickly and then going I cannot see what the actual driver is let alone choose an option, after this it says recovery has failed the error code c:system.savlogsBurnBootwarn.log it states the error was detected during PINIST_BBV , when i opened the log file it seemed all the drivers had succeded but [mini_FBI] resilt failed, I have tried doing the recovery with the wireless button on as I heard this could be the cause but still it didn't work, I have recovery discs that i burned however My laptop wont seem to boot fom disk even though I have changed the BIOS and put harddrive at the bottom and the disc at the top.

HP/Compaq :: System Recovery
When I boot up my laptop, I hit F11 to start the recovery, it says at the bottom, Starting Recovery, but then it just boots right into windows. There is still a recovery partition on my harddrive but why isn't it letting me boot it?

Acer :: ERecovery Management Failed To Produce System Discs
I got for my son an Acer Aspire 4520 as a cost effective notebook for an extended study trip and I was pretty much impressed with my first encounter with Acer. It was also my first encounter with Vista HP and I do like it.

The package didn't include any system discs and I understand you create them with Acer's eRecovery Management. I started with creating the factory default discs which required two DVDs. I also chose the option of verifying the data on the burnt DVD. The first DVD got burnt and verified fine but the second DVD failed to verify. This outcome was repeated twice. Acer's tech support was responsive and ordered me a set of discs at no charge, however this incidence casts a shadow on the quality of Acer's packaged support software.

I noticed another glitch: the backup wizards prompts you to insert a disc for burning and when you do that Window's auto play menu comes up and expects you to pick an application to deal with the empty disc. I simply ignored it and the disc got burnt anyway, but this shouldn't happen.

I wonder if and how other Acer owners were able to burn their system discs using this particular Acer SW.

HP/Compaq :: HP Dv5 (Vista) System Recovery After Windows 7
I'm currently using an HP Pavilion dv5-1140 (the white/lime green special edition). It shipped with Vista Home Premium.

I've recently installed Windows 7 to have a quick look at 'what's next', planning on using HP's System Recovery partition (triggered by pressing F11 at startup) to reimage later.

I've been trying to trigger the System Recovery tool at startup (with F11), but it's no longer working properly - the computer 'thinks' for a second and then starts booting into Windows 7.

I'm afraid after using tens of Pavilions in the past two years (I'm a journo), I've got into the lazy habit of using this recovery partition to reimage, not burnt DVDs.

Is there anyway I can get the computer to load the HP Recovery tool now? I'm not looking to recover data - just reimage with Vista HP.

Acer :: Aspire 5315 Recovery Failed
Problem-- When you Turn on my acer 5315 laptop a blank black screen comes up after the acer logo appears. If you press any key a loud beep noice sounds.

Solutions I have Tried-- Well i started with using the preloaded restore to factory defults and I got an error message at about 99 percent. The error was- Restore Failed- Reason oxd0000001d - or close to that. I figured maybe the backup partiton was screwed up so I pulled out the old recovery cd's I purchased from acer. The same thing showed up. I then figured i should call acer. I called and they told me to use the acer post disk formatter. I tried that and it still did not help the problem. I have no where else to turn so thougt maybe you guys could help.

By the way This is some of my system specs--

Acer 5315-
Hitachi 80GB hard drive-
Windows Vista Basic

Acer :: Crisis Recovery CD, AS5520 Failed BIOS Upgrade
I have an ACER Aspire 5520, (model ICW50) with AMD Turion TK55. I tried to upgrade it with the BIOS available under the model's specified page in ACER site, version 1.33 (IC50133.WPH).

Unfortunately I was naive enough to try flash32.exe, which is the windows base version of the flashing program; now I have a dead BIOS. Windows froze completely, I had to unplug and disconnect battery to have it down, and it never came up.

Then I did a lot of research and I found and browsed hundreds of pages about Crisis Recovery Mode (CRM). From all I read there are some misconceptions I want to get past:

1 - Deal with different CRM versions, which get accessed by Fn+B, or Winkey+B; on my case I have found that CRM gets accessed with Fn+Esc.
I know it, because instead of powering up and then dying in 3 or 4 seconds on an eternal loop, when I press and hold Fn+Esc and then I connect the power adapter (with battery disconnected), I get a quick orange flash under the power button. So, when I press the power button the computer keeps running, fan is running, and it is checking HD and CD-ROM drives.

2 - There is a lot of myth about the way one has to press and hold Fn+Esc. You just have to press it before you connect the power cable. As long as you get the quick orange flash under the power button, you know the PC is in CRM. I have done all the fancy combinations of holding those keys down, but it all ends up in the same. By the way, even if you connect the battery, instead of the power adapter, once you are holding Fn+Esc it gives the same result: orange flash, you are in CRM. Of course you do not want to flash it using the battery, that's why the emphasis on connecting the power adaptor instead.

3 - Most of the info I found about this matter then turns to building the Crisis Recovery Disk (a floppy) or a CR pendrive. It does not solve my problem because when in CRM, the computer completely ignores the USB ports, the 4 of them, I tried one by one, be it with 2 different kinds of USB floppy drives, or pendrives duly formatted in FAT. There is no blinking of light on either. There is no attempt at all to access any of the USB ports......................

HP/Compaq :: Installing XP On CQ61 After W7
I'm trying to install XP on my machine after I fried old HD that had W7 installation. I bought new HD but i only have XP CD so i figured I'll install XP so far to get the PC up and ruining, and upgrade to W7 once i find by back-up CD.

My new HD is picked up by machine, and CD starts with installation, copying files from the CD, but only up to the point where it is supposed to start with windows installation.

At that point I get blue screen and message telling me i do not have HD or it is incorrectly installed and that I should run check disk. I've run BIOS scan, and HD is present and scans OK. Is it possible that previous install of W7 is memorized somewhere in BIOS and it is not allowing me to install XP even though HD is blank and brand new?

HP/Compaq :: CQ61-220SA- Specs For Game
I have a Compaq CQ61-220SA Laptop with a 1.8 GHz Intel Celeron DualCore Mobile Processor T3000 cpu and Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD Graphics on which I have Win 7 32 bit.

I've bought a copy of Red Alert 3 which states that it needs an Intel P4 2.6GHz cpu for Vista and 256MB Graphics with a NVidia Geforce G800 or greater chipset or an ATI Radeon X800 or greater chipset.

The shop has said as long as I don't break the seal on the game I can return it if it's not compatible with my laptop and so I need some advice please as to whether the specs I've got are sufficient to run this game?

if this laptop will run this game?

HP/Compaq :: Presario CQ61-305SA CPU Upgrade
just wondering about doing a CPU upgrade on the above laptop, the current CPU is an AMD Sempron M100. I'm not to up on my AMD cpu's so not sure what the best upgrade would be. Also, what does the bios support, as there are many CPU's that will fit the S1 socket, but I guess not all will be supported in the bios, so does anyone have any knowledge on this.

Acer :: Tried Performing A System Recovery On My Laptop
I tried performing a system recovery on my laptop. After it was finished, I received an error stating "The computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error.

Windows installation cannot proceed.To install windows, click ok to restart the computer, and then restart the installation." Then, after restarting, the computer begins to boot, but brings me to a screen "/noexecute=optin" "edit boot options for microsoft windows vista. Path: windowssystem32winload.exe". Alt+F10 then brings me to a Change boot device screen, giving me the option between my hard drive and CD/DVD ROM drive. My laptop is not under warranty any more, and I do not have recovery discs, nor can I afford them. What can I do to either boot my laptop, or properly recover it?

HP/Compaq :: Want To Clean Up/format Presario C310 -- Use Recovery Disks Or Recovery Partition?
Iíve just done a clean install of my Dell Vostro -- reinstalling vista and removing the recovery partition in the process. Outcome = a Ďcleanerí machine with none of the preinstalled bloatware/c**p from Dell. (first time Iíve done anything like this, but followed a brill guide in the Dell section of this forum ).

Iím 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 sweepÖ. hopefully resulting in a faster laptop. Iím backing up her data, and moving some of my Dadís 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 donít think the (factory set) bloatware is too much of an issue for her Ė sheís not a heavy user.

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

Iíd like to know the best approach Ė and canít seem to find a set of instructions to follow.

HP/Compaq :: F730US HD Failed
Did the HD test and it failed, begins to boot but goes to black screen w/ cursor. What I was told when I called HP and from what I reasearched myself you can't just pop another HD in without encountering problems and even another dead HD. Is it the software in the laptop or are some HDs not compatible? Is there an HD that I can use without having issues? The old HD is a Samsung HM 121 Hl 120GB 5400 SATA-150.

HP/Compaq :: DV6000 Failed Mobo Or HDD
I've got a DV6000 here that seems to have some sort of motherboard or HDD problem.

I load up an XP Pro installation and everything seems to work fine until it gets to "Setup is now loading Windows" at which point the installation just hangs. Native SATA is turned off. Tried it twice, too.

I've tried the installation with a Windows 7 Beta DVD as well, and the installation also hangs shortly after Windows finishes loading its files. I tried Windows 7 with native SATA turned on and off.

I'm not 100% sure that the HDD is ok as I don't have anything with which to test it, but the installation will get past this point in my E6400.

I'm not that familiar with HP computers, so I'm wondering if I'm missing something obvious or if there's a hardware problem.

I have always bought Dells but am leaning more towards HP and am baffled by the fact that the CSR says I cannot get a laptop with an operating system disk for use with the laptop I am purchasing. I would gladly pay a fee for the disk as I have when I have purchased my Dells.

Is there any way (other than just purchasing the operating system outside of the the HP purchase) to have HP include a oem disk with my purchase?

HP/Compaq :: DV6 QuadCooling System Cleaning
I have only had my dv6 a week, but i like to keep my notebooks running as cool as possible.

As far as i can see there is no way of accessing the fan, without taking the notebook to bits , there is no air intake above the fan like other notebooks , only 2 vents where you can see parts of the cooling system.

Now if i blow compressed air into these vents will the dust not just be blow all over the inside of the notebook, or will it just come out of the other vent.

Also i have read that you should secure the fan from running as not to damage it, but this is not possible without taking the notebook apart.

I can remove the hdd and memory covers without any problems, but i dont think this will give me access to the fan/cooling system.

HP/Compaq :: DV7-1030eg- Something Keeps Sending Keystrokes Through My System
I have an HP DV7-1030eg laptop and am running Vista Home 64 bit, and lately, there has been some invisible force that seems to be sending keystrokes through my system and messing up my volume settings. Here's some things that happen:

- when I use ALT-TAB, the bar (the ALT-TAB window that pops up in the middle of the screen) will just disappear
- IrfanView will suddenly jump to the next picture or quit full screen mode
- screensaver doesn't stay on longer than a couple seconds
- sometimes, my sound volume will drop, shake up and down a bit and then go all the way out. When I open the volume settings, I can see the volume slider wobbling around at the bottom

Needless to say, I checked for viruses and stuff, then I looked for advice online: the ALT-TAB problem seems to be pretty common, esp. with DELL notebooks (?), and people have had the same issue with IrfanView. I hear that removing the notebook's battery will help because there is electric tension building and that triggers unwanted impulses. And it's true, when I remove the battery, the PC becomes more stable - for a short while. Then, the problems reappear.

I checked out the test field in the FilterKeys feature, which emits a clicking sound at every keystroke, and it's clicking like crazy. There's roughly one keystroke a second happening in my system right now!

Maybe my setup is not properly grounded? I live in an old house with old wires etc. - how do I discharge electrical tension from an object? Or do I have too much stuff connected to my computer that creates an electric field? I have a 2.1 stereo system with ground loop isolator, an external monitor and USB mouse/keyboard.

HP/Compaq :: Can A Bad Battery Make My System Run Really Slow
My battery died a few months ago on my nc8430. It's not an oem batter, but was a third the price. When running on the battery power, the computer is very slow. I have to have NHC on MAX Performance to watch youtube @ low res, or even type without lag. Even with this there is lag on the system. With NHC set to Max Battery, the computer is nearly unusable. Now I've been using the computer for a while, at Max Battery, and AC power, with now problems. And if i plug in the power cable, but change nothing, the system runs at normal speed.

Can a battery cause this type of behavior? Should I return it?

Acer :: Upgrading Wlan-module Failed
I tried to upgrade the wlan module in my Acer TravelMate 4233WLMi from the original Intel 3945abg mini-pci module to the Intel 4965abn mini-pci.

Windows Vista immediately recognised the new module, installed the drivers and noted the the new interface is now up and running and ready for use.

In fact it's not - the wlan-led on the front of the notebook stays dark - when I tried to switch it on via the front panel switch the notebook displays "no wlan module found".

The device manager in Vista still displays it as up and running.

I put in the original module again and the switch, led and wlan works again.

So my question is whether I received a faulty 802.11n module or whether the 4965abn is simply incompatible with the Acer 4233WLMi ...

HP/Compaq :: Hp Dv9000 Recovery
I having some problems with a DV6000 notebook.

I originally set the machine up with two partitions, one for his documents and the C: My problems started when I was doing some routine maintenance to the machine which belongs to my brother. The C partition was getting quite low so I decided to knock some space of d and add to c. I have done this many times using partition magic but for some reason it failed.

This left me we a hall.dll error on boot, however the machine will still boot if I pressed enter. It also meant that I had about 2 gig of partitioned space, plus the 1 gig for quick launch.

I re-added the 2gig space back to D using gParted, but still no luck, so I then decided to reinstall quick launch, which seemed to go ok accept that after I rebooted, Nothing, just a blinking cursor on the screen.

I then tired to do a recovery using the disks, of course though disk two and three are stuffed. I cant see anywhere, where it asks me to press f11 to restore from the recovery partition which still should be intact............

HP/Compaq :: Hp Recovery Software Cd
I've been trying to burn the Recovery software to discs for my HP Pavillion DV6000 for quite some time now, using another identical laptop , and I keep getting errors popping up saying I need to use better quality discs . I've tried many different types of discs from DVD's to CD's all with the same results .

listed are the ones I've tried so far

DVD'S :
Memorex 16x 4.7GB RW DVD+R
Memorex 4x 4.7GB RW DVD+R
Maxell 1-16x 4.7GB DVD-R
Maxell 1-16x 4.7GB DVD-R ( colored ) ( got the closest with this , it burnt about half the DVD then kicked it out , tried again with more of the same discs and it didn't want to work or even start the burning process )

CD'S :
Magnavox 52x CD-R
Memorex 40x CD-R

so far , all crapped out and don't know what to do now . it'll collect the files , and right when it starts to burn them onto the disc , it spits the disc back out and says to get better quality discs and that I can't use these . I really need these discs burnt because I had to buy a new hard drive for my laptop and it came without any software pre-installed so it's blank......

I tried reformatting this laptop the standard way I would my desktop PC. Boot with my Windows XP CD, delete partition, create, and install. The first time I tried however I realized there was a recovery partition on the laptop (it's not mine). So after doing the initial steps of re-installing Windows and rebooting to proceed with the setup, the PC Recovery from that partition kicks in asking me to do a destructive recovery and do it all itself. So I just tried that and upon restarting the PC, I get an "MBR Error". Fixmbr when booting in the recovery console booting with the XP disc didn't work. This laptop was having some issues before the attempted format (BSOD's).

Would it be wise to just format the recovery partition as well so hopefully a regular format and XP re-install will proceed rather than be "interrupted" by PC Recovery? I have a Windows XP disc (with the required SATA drivers integrated) and it's probably not too big of a problem finding the separate drivers afterwards.
