Advice of failure - time for an update system - Qosmio G15 HARD drive please

Hey people,

Thus, it seems that my C drive died on my G15. I managed to recover most of my data and I am always under scans now. However, I don't think that I can trust the machine and bought a new hard drive. Now things are messy to messier.

Apparently it's quite easy to do a refresh of the system if you have a few CD of restoration that is supposed to come with the machine.
However the only my laptop recovery CD came with the recovery of Qosmio player is. Not very useful given that I do not use the player in any case.

So I wonder now what is my best bet? I have been open to trying Linux, or would like to come back to Win 2 K.
However, it seems that most of the drivers is for Win XP?

Because I don't have the recovery disc, it seems that I can go there with regular XP Pro. Who's going to be a problem? Also there are tons of drivers on the Toshiba site. Are there best practices for how they all need to go? I came across some threads here that suggests that the drivers must be installed in a very special way. I also noticed that some discussions referred to threads that detail the process of installing XP, but I could not find these discussions.

I am quite computer literate and know what I'm doing. But I want to get this right on the first attempt, not the 3rd or 4th or 5th etc... I need this machine to turn as soon as possible so I can get back to work. I already spent a week doing the scans in the car and trying to recover the data that I can.

I got really excited when I discovered there was a recovery of the G15 disc, and I might be able to do a faster refresh than I thought. Then very disappointed when I discovered that I never had one of these recovery discs with my cpu!

Thanks for any help you can offer!

Crickets...

OK, in the fire, I will!

    Hello, so I performed a reset that restore my computer to factory settings, I have chosen to erase all files. I've done this before, and everything went well. What was going on, it was my disc useage was at 100% a lot and that something was wrong with my computer then I factory reset it. While the factory reset is 44% in "resetting your computer" and the next thing I knew I had 2 options, stop or start with advanced options. Well, I chose to stop it, 5 minutes later, I turned it back on and I ran a SMART check has no that was the ID # 9367LW-86J89N-MFPX7G-60BR3 followed by the product id that is shown above. He said that when I start to Boot Device not found, please install an operating system on your hard drive. Followed by the hard drive (3FO), I can only click f2 and it gives me the link to visit the Help Center. The computer saying that it did not have an operating system was not the first alert, that I had, it was something else saying there was an error of hard disk which then became not having not not an operting system. I tried to go to f11 and go in this way, but regardless of what it always comes back to the screen that shows the found boot device, please install an operating system. Help, please! Thank you. in advance.

    Look in the "Major updates" block

    Inside, there is a line (with menu drop-down) to select the time that windows update is to run.

  • Probbok 4530 s: file system on the hard drive for HP Probbok 4530 s recovery

    Hello world

    I knew that the hard disk file system must be a particular type to allow for the recovery of the HP Probook 4530 s factory. The problem is when the narrowing of my drive, I changed to NTFS and I forgot which is the file format native allowing rocovery. This is why the recovery process does not work.

    Anyone know what to do? Help, please... Thanks in advance!

    NTFS is the native file for Windows 7 system. If you have added additional partitions and/or that you converted your hard disk from basic to dynamic that would be the cause of recovery does not.

    Contact HP for recovery media.
