On my HP Pavilion the Recovery disk creator kicks out disk 1 (it says it will make 3) with an error note. If I stick another disk in it starts all over.My DVD+R disk is a 4.7 GB. Could it be only one disk was needed?
i have a hp 620 notebook, and it is given me an error message "non-system disk or disk error" after i turned it on. it had worked find in the morning and now it is displaying this error message and i cannot log into my notebook. i tried to recover it with hp recovery but it said "data is not valid.
I just bought the Probook 4710s 5 days ago, and some times when I try to start the computer, it just wrights on the screen Non system disk or disk error, please replace and press any key... I don't have any CD or DVD in CD/DVD unit or any USB keys... when I try to scan the hard disk it reports to me No hard disk found. Every now and than it starts Windows normaly, but it keeps repeating frequently the same boot problem and not beeing able to start my comp.
Does it mean that the hard disk is bad or broken, or it will be soon...or what? Should I return the laptop and ask for replacement?
I am so tired of receiving Low Disk Space on recovery (D). I have done everything it asked. Empty Recycle Bin which is EMPTY. I am not a computer wizard but it seems unfair that I have pay over $150.00 year to correct this problem once a year. I have checked a lot of places and it just keeps telling me the same thing. That doesn't work.
i bought a new hp laptop so i started to make recovery disks but when collect data it recieved 50% and then stopped and give me the following screen canceling in progress recovery disk creation will reume where you left off in the process the next you start the program
I am using HP Dv2000 notebook, now when i try to create a recovery disk, i intially used the CD and copied the file then i noticed that that the total no of CD required is 18 where as if we use DVD it needs 2-3, so the 2'nd one i inserted is a DVD, the recovery program now it is saying that you should install a CD rather than a DVD, can i start again the process of copying using my new 3 DVD's?
Just got my new HP Pavillion dv5-1000 laptop and I'm very pleased with it so far, apart from one problem.
The machine came without any backup disks, which seems to be a standard HP thing. So I've tried to create my own disk using the Recovery Manager software. It goes through the first part of the process collecting files, but when it reaches 100% I get an error message saying that the files are more than 0mb and it can't continue.
I've tried using a different blank DVD but get the same message.
It's a pain, and is spoiling my enjoyment of an otherwise excellent machine. If anyone can suggest a way around this I'd be grateful.
I've tried this fix:unable to burn Recovery DVD but the software doesn't install.
I was recovering my Hp Pavillion dv5120us laptop and once it asked for my 3rd recovery disc, i noticed it was cracked in 3 places on the disc. I put it in the laptop b/c it is the only copy i have, in hopes that it would work anyway but it did not.
If someone has their own set of the recovery discs for this model computer, please send me a copy or a link to download it so i can make my own copies. I am not that computer savvy so please make it as easy as possible to download.
I also tried ordering the recovery discs from the manufacturer website but once i clicked on 'recovery disc set for windows xp' it gave me a 'cannot display web page' notice.
I have an HP Pavilion dv6000 and run Windows Visa Home Edition.I wanted to restore my laptop to its factory settings but the Recovery Manager wouldn't work. When I clicked on it it would just restart the computer without anything else happening. I then right clicked on the computer >manage> disk manager and made the recovery partition active. When I rebooted the computer it began showing:Bootmgr is missingPress Ctrl+Alt+DeleteWhich of course leads back to the same message after te computer reboots. I can't access F8 key. Only F10 (Bios) works. I don't have a recovery or installation CD as it didn't come with the laptop when I purchased it.Is there anyway I can change the active partition back to the C drive, this disabling the recovery partition? I read that it was possible to access disk manager from cmd prompt window, but I don't know how to access it since the F8 key won't work (makes just a bipping noise when pressed)?I am also out of the country so can't mail my laptop to HP to have it fixed.
i have hp pavilion g6 notebook pc laptop...but it does not contain recovery disk and whenever i create recovery disk from recoverry manager it failed to verify disk 1 and show the message "insert another disk " it happen again and again ...what to do....
I've just encountered error 1002 while using recovery... Recovery successfully went through reformattng my drive but crashed before reinstaling the original content. It doesn't matter if I try recovering from hard driver nor dvd rom, it all results in error 1002. I've done some searching and it seems it's quite common error in hp products without proper solution. I feel I'm out of luck as my warranty expired years ago.. How can I resolve this issue? For me it seems that recovery content orginally placed on my hard drive (and later burned on the DVD by me) had been damaged.
- to order another recovery disks set (though I saw few opinions it didn't work)
- buy new "Windows" and install a new fresh installation (will I be able to perform new installation at all?)
I performed a system recovery to factory settings that resulted in my Disk space being distributed differently than before. I have a lot of unallocated space as you can see bellow. I need to know how to fix and how to prevent this from happening the next time I perform a recovery. Also, is it normal for the RECOVERY (D) partition to show multiple times in Disk Management ?
HP battery alert system detected battery capacity to be very low error 601 (internal battery). So I changed the cell to a new CR 2032 battery. Showed the same error. I changed to another new CR2032 battery. The second time I did this I had a new 502 CMOS error along with the 601 error. My clock reverted back to 2009, I lost some of the icons on the lower right, and my wireless internet disappeared.
Now I have two things that need to be fixed.
I turned on, immediately hti ESC, hit system diag. F2, Battery Test: Battery Test Primary FAILED (on the first battery I put in, didn't check on the second)
Control - Device Mgr. - HP - Batteries - Microsoft AC Adapter, Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery, and Microsoft Composit Battery all show that they work.
System CMOS/realtime clock says its working.
Microsoft System Mgmt. - BIOS Driver v. 6.1.7601.17514 from 6/21/2006 says it's the latest version.
I've manually updated my clock. I'll figure out the wireless and icons later I guess. Just need to know what to do about the errors.
I have firefox for my browsing needs, MS Office for Mac 2008 for my office software, iTunes and Quicktime as my media player (they will play everything won't they?), and now i'm looking for a replacement for paint.net.
I don't need all the features of photoshop, although I gather many many mac users just opt for pirating it
Gimp isn't properly "native" and I hate the gimp tbf. Gimpshop is the same. Seahorse hasn't been updated for 2 years.......
I'm at a loss. What do I do for a paint.net equivilent on a mac? What if I buy photoshop elements? Is that just for photo's, or can I make avatars on it too etc...?
How do you cope? What do you use? Do you just pirate photoshop?
This Compaq CQ50-NR215 has continued to get slower over time. It was bought at BestBuy, and came with (2) "GeekSquad" recovery CD's- as opposed to a Microsoft OS disk? Upon backing up my data, I proceded with Disk1- which it said successfully did something with the partition. Stage two was installing original software. It stalled during this stage & gave ERROR 1005. After removing the CD, the laptop failed to boot, stating that some device in the boot sector was not present.
It so happened that I had a Vista OS CD from some other computer, so I inserted the CD & tried reboot. After asking whether to repair/install windows (which I selected install), it appeared to going well. The greeting message appears & says "Prepearing your DESKTOP for initial use". It booted fine, the UI appears intact. The problem-
The WLAN light on the laptop which is red when turned off/blue when on- remains red & will not activate. In the device manager I find no network adapter. A section named "Other Devices" is highlighted in yellow indicating an issue- when selecting Other Devices, a submenu appears & the following list is present (see photo also)
Coprocessor Ethernet Controller SM Bus Controller Unknown Device.
From the HP driver download section, I downloaded what I thought may be the appropriate chipset to a flash drive, then moved to the laptop & installed. Still nothing.
It was suggested that I may be able to plug an ethernet cable directly from my router to the laptop & gain internet access that way- which failed, no access. The CD I installed from was designed for an older desktop, not having the software to make use of the internal wifi.
17 inch HP Pavilion DV9000 series laptop (DV9417CL). It is AMD, part number GL880UA#ABbA. When trying recovery with cd I made from system and have used before I get a recovery error 0x400110020000100A. My hard drive is starting to fail and I'm trying to replace it with a new drive. These recovery disks were made from drive that came in the laptop.
I was reformatting my iPod the other day and I left the house to go run some errands and when I got back I was greeted with the BSOD. So I just restarted my computer like always when suddenly I was greeted with this:
PBR 2... done
A disk read error has occurred Press Ctrl + Alt + Del to restart
So I pressed Ctrl + Alt + Del and got the same message. About 5 times later I was able to run some sort of diagnostics and it was showing something with my HDD. So I tore my computer apart and put everything back in just to see if that would work and I'm still getting the same.
Am I just screwed out of my 20GB of music and all those programs that I had on my computer or is there some sort of fix to be able to recover the data? And will I just have to cave and get a new HDD?
I have been trying to burn some dvd's and I am having so/so luck. I get a burn on the dvd itself and it will play on my laptop, but for some reason when I put it in a normal DVD Player it does not read. In fact the player will say error on disk.
I have this problem. I had the x64 version of Vista running on my Macbook Pro and I just started to hate all the stuttering because of the wireless driver (which nobody can resolve), so I decided to put back my good-old trusty XP Pro 32bit. (I still have that CD all dusted somewhere around here).
So I wiped my Boot Camp partition, made another one (with the Assistant), and put in the XP CD, the computer restarted, it loaded up Windows Setup, copied all the files (in text mode) and then when the computer restarts and boots off the new partition, I get the:
"Disk Boot Error, Press any key to restart..."
And of course the system freezes. I have to hold down the power button and shut down my Mac.
Now as far as I can figure this out, I think something messed with my mbr or something, because this only happens with the XP disc. Vista would want to install just fine and dandy.............
