Can you use a backup disks to another laptop to save your laptop? If so, what are the steps to create a backup disc?

I need to restart my computer to its original settings, as I just bought. I did the backup drive for my laptop and need a backup disk to restore my computer. Can I use a backup from another laptop, same brand disc and the same software (vista). Can it be done? If so, what documents do I need to create a backup disk and what to put on it. Help, please.

Hello

recovery discs are computer brand and model specific

If you need the drive for your recovery or read alternative methods below

If you don't have a recovery disk, you must have a recovery partition to do the same thing

Here are the different ways to reinstall Vista:

Contact the manufacturer of the laptop computer and ask them to send you to vista recovery disks to reinstall the operating system back as it was when you bought it

they do it for a nominal cost of $

also ask them if you have a recovery partition on your hard drive to get back to the way you bought

you would normally press F8, F9, F10 or F11 or Alt + F10 or 0 to start to start the recovery process according to the manufacturer

Ask them of the exact key sequence

their request also how to make this recovery partition recovery disks

or borrow a vista microsoft dvd; not a HP, Acer recovery disk etc

Make sure that you borrow the correct 32-bit or 64-bit microsoft dvd to your computer

they contain all versions of vista

This is the product key that determines which version of vista is installed

  • What are the steps to create, format and install a new virtual disk in Windows

    I swear I've scoured the Internet for days trying to find the details of this process, and I'm embarrassed to have failed in my quest to understand what I must be a very simple thing.  The best I can do is this:

    Step 1: Create a new vmdk using vmware-vdiskmanager

    Step 2:?

    Step 3: Get your vmdk newly formatted using vmware-mount, or using "Map Virtual Disk" of the Workstation option

    Now, you will see that somewhere between step 1 and 3, it is an essential step of the new vmdk format so that it can be recognized and mounted.  Simply, I can't find any example online how to do this.  I just know someone will say "just attach to a virtual machine and format her", to which my answer is "how?  It won't let me get an unformatted disk.  When I try to go directly to step 3 after step 1, I get the following error, "error reading volume information.  Please select another file to disk.

    You are allowed to have two facilities enabled, so if you prefer you can keep ut on the current computer and just install it on the new as you did initially.  If you want to remove on the other machine, the first thing to do is to disable it by opening a program in the suite and by selecting help-> turn off in the top toolbar.  That's all you need to do to disable the software.  At this point if you prefer you can uninstall it if you want.

    As much as on the new nmachine, as I indicated just, just install it like you did the first time.

    Check that the battery is installed and connected properly. Some batteries use a locking mechanism, yours may not be properly connected.

    Check the Notification area of the Windows taskbar and click on the battery icon and look for message relating to the changing needs of your battery.

    Its likely the battery will need to be changed. How old is the laptop.

    Hello

    The error message indicates that there is nothing to start, it means that an operating system is not installed, or the MBR is corrupted, that is not your case. The hard drive is ok, but you must restore the system using the recovery disks, you got.

    It's simple, change the startup option in the BIOS to CD/DVD-ROM as the first one (press ESC on startup, press F10), then you can insert the No. 1 disc in the optical drive recovery. Save the settings of the BIOS (reboot), then follow the instructions (click on factory reset). It worked for me that way...

  • How can I check if a user belongs to a certain group of field and see what are the permissions that the user has on a specific group "administrator, user and guest"?

    I can't check in a group of area if a user is "administrator, user and guest.

    I'm using labview 2012 in the windows domain.

    I think that there are tools. NET to resolve this, but could not yet.

    Attached a file that checks if a user belongs to a group in the area, but without the information of privileges.

    In the past, I used the command line.  Use ' Net User % username / Domain % domain % ' to get information about the user.  Actually, I don't have the right to see the other commands, so I don't know how it works now.  .NET looks more elegant, but I never used it for that.

    Running Windows XP Home, I want to change hard drive as described above.

    As a result, I have a USB hard drive, which I copied the hard drive of the original 'C', before it fails altogether.

    Is it possible to copy this USB drive on my SATA hard drive and have as my primary hard drive?
    Keeping in mind of the SATA hard drive, connected via a PCI-SATA controller card.

    Unless your third sata card supports the option to boot from this map, its not going to work. Not all sata cards are bootable.

  • If my computer falls down can I use a backup disk to retrieve

    If my computer falls down can I use a backup disk to retrieve

    The best way to start is in safe mode and if it does not progress to a Windows repair disk.

    You haven't said which OS has your laptop or which model is it. Create a Windows for Windows 7 or Vista repair disc, depending on which is installed.

    Always start by trying to restore the operating system to perceive before even to consider so final option as a revaluation. The reasoning behind my statement is simple. An repair is non-destructive. An recovery is destructive and exterminates all what you had on your hard drive and start from scratch with no programs installed.

  • can you use a deskjet 970cse in black only mode when the color cartridge dries up

    can you use a deskjet 970cse in black only mode when the color cartridge dries up? Thank you, Jerry

    banhien information is very accurate. I would just add a bit of it. Because this printer uses a tricolor cartridge and a black, it should be one of the printers that will print with just the black cartridge installed. It is called print in backup mode. I should happen automatically when you remove the color cartridge and try printing. A message will arrive on the printer or the computer and ask you if you want to print in backup mode. Say yes, and it should let you print. Hope that helps.

  • Hello, please help me. I use a power keyboard for my laptop. I see in the new keyboard is equipped with a num lock key is turned on. I can't use on it please help me disable it. I do not use a NumLock on. Thank you

    Hello, please help me. I use a power keyboard for my laptop. I see in the new keyboard is equipped with a num lock key is turned on. I can't use on it please help me disable it. I do not use a NumLock on. Thank you

    You say that when you press the NUM LOCK key, the Numlock State does not change (if enabled to disabled and vice versa)?  Have you tried to unplug the keyboard and by ensuring that the keyboard of the laptop does not have enabled Numlock?  If so, turn it off on the laptop keyboard and reinsert the another keyboard and see if the problem is resolved.

    If you do not need the Numlock key, it can be disabled at startup with the following procedure:http://www.technipages.com/enabledisable-numlock-at-login-or-startup.html. Once this is done, I don't think he's going to turn on or off and that they the keyboard will start in the off position.  You will not be able to use the key yourself or another, but maybe the problem she is on (which is worse than it to be impossible to be turned on) will be resolved and I hope it will be enough for you.

    If the key does not work and you want to be able to use it, the keyboard may be defective.  Try the keyboard on another computer and see if you have the same problem.  If so, the keyboard is defective and must be replaced.

    I hope this helps.

    Good luck!
