Laptop HP Emvy 15: System Recovery keeps failing


I'm trying to reinstall original OS (WIN 8.1).  I use three DVD recovery discs provided by HP, but unfortunately for some reason any recovery keeps failing.   Besides the machine will start only in the first DVD.  According to the BIOS, the laptop was built in 2014 (which apparently has some influence on the recovery someware).

Any assistance woule be appreciated


Hi CherylG,

This somewhat embarrassing.  My problem was solved when the operating system has been reinstalled.  Initially I contacted HP customer care with a view to see what my chances were to have replaced the operating system.  You see the recovery partition has been deleted by mistake when I was convinced to give a Linux OS a go.  I could not get used and decided to return to Windows.

Anyway somewhere in the conversation with the customer service "re-install" became "valorisation" and a few days later, a system recovery DVD set arrived on my doorstep.  As you know, I tried various methods to try to resolve the problem without success.   Yet once, I talked to CS and it was decided that I send to the machine to HP (AWA) to Sydney for repairs. One day ortol later that I have received a call from a technician who asked if there were files or data on the hard drive that I need to be saved.  I said nothing on the HARD drive and he said thathe would like to reinstall the OS.  That's what the report says, reinstalled OS and the device.

I guess the moral of this story is to recover whatever it is there must be something to recover.  That's why I kept getting the message "try to restore system failed" or words to that effect.

See you soon

  • HP g5000 system recovery disk fails 1002


    My frends daughter took the computer hp laptop in America and then the hard drive failed with no recovery disc, she went to a repair centre and had a new fixed hard drive.

  • HP Pavilion dv2700 laptop displays the message "system CMOS checksum failed" every time you start

    Hi @all,

    I have a HP Pavilion dv2700 - kh933ea laptop computer #abv (it is a HP Pavilion dv2799ee Special Edition Entertainment Notebook PC to be exact) that displays the message "system CMOS checksum failed. Press F1 to continue"every time you start the system. My OS is Windows 7 / 32 bit.

    Then I updated my BIOS to version 2.4e, 01-dec-08 Phoenix (the SMBIOS version remained the same before 2.4), but the issue is not resolved. I have attached a screenshot for processor and BIOS versions.

    Can someone guide me on how to solve this problem?

    Thank you very much in advance.

    I don't see the screenshot of your post attachments. Please repost them.

    This error message means that WHAT BIOS is damaged. You will need to have the BIOS flashed in a mobile shop, repair a BIOS or an HP Service Center. Do a search online with Google or Bing repair for a BIOS.  If you keep trying to update the BIOS there will come a time where everything you have a black screen.

  • Laptop died during the system recovery

    During a system recovery, my laptop died. I plugged it all in a row... but when I turned it on a message comes up. "Windows is unable to complete the installation. To install Windows on this computer, run the Setup again. "So I clicked 'OK' and it happened on the screen, he's going to when you log out, and then it restarts. After that, the same box back upward. So I shut down my laptop and when I turned it back on, it goes into the newspaper. It shows the Administrator icon and it says "locked administrator" I clicked it and it then says: "your account is disabled. Please consult your system administrator. »

    Is there anyway that I can make another recovery system? Help please!

    For problems/questions about the recovery process, contact the manufacturer of your laptop.

  • System Restore keeps failing

    I tried all day to do a system restore. No matter what date choose for a starting point, when the process is finished, a window opens and says "system restore failed and no changes to your computer." It drives me crazy! All I want to do is run a system restore that works. Can you help me please? Thank you.


    If you have Norton Internet Security installed, you should first disable Norton Tamper Protection as described in step 2, on the link below.

    Once you are done, turn off the PC.  Windows system restore is usaully better run in Mode without failure.  Tap away at f8 that you start the PC to enter the Windows Recovery Console.  Use the arrow keys to select Safe mode and press ENTER.  When it has loaded, on the Start Menu, click principally made programs, accessories, click System Tools and run the system restore.  Choose a restore point, you want and then do the restore.  When you are finished, Windows will restart normally.

    Let me know if you still cannot deliver the issue to run correctly.

  • I can't do on my laptop system recovery


    I try my laptop HP Pavilion PC g6 recovery but it does not work! I did it last year and it worked, but now it doesn't! The problem is that when I remove the last CD of HP recovery (they are four) since the drive hard, after a while my laptop suddenly stopped! I so want to solve or to get any help here because I really need my work laptop.

    Thanks for any help!

    It is a possiblity that the laptop overheating causing the closure. Take a can of compressed air and clean all the ports, vents, etc. to ensure good air circulation. You might even live a small fan to the laptop while trying to run the recovery again.

    Another possibility is failing hard drive. Use Diagnostics to test and memory. You should have diagnoses in the BIOS (F10 to light) or diagnostic system (F2 to turn on)

  • HP 15-f111dx: laptop won't start or go to the menu of system recovery?

    So the other day I was cleaning off my laptop and I slipped the keyboard with a towel and I guess I pressed something I wouldn't because he went to a white screen and green-ish (the color of my windows theme 8) and I had to turn off because he wouldn't do anything.

    Now when I turn it on it has the loading of HP and said preparation of automatic recovery screen, but then it's just a black screen after a minute. I can go into the menu of the BIOS (F9) and the parameters of the system (F10), but I can not enter the page of system recovery. When I press the F11 key to make, it said system restore in the corner, but then it goes to the loading screen 'system recovery preparation' just and turns to a black screen.

    I ran a test of the system short on the menu diagnostics and it says verification of DST short of hard drive failed. I got the error code was U4TV68-7J3886-MFPV6K - T 60, 603. Any help here? I don't mind reset my computer to default settings, if that's possible, but I can't exactly go and buy a new laptop now.

    Thanks in advance!

    Short of DST = disk failure hard drive is not / is a failure and should be replaced. Unfortunately HP does not that easy in their later models. On laptops earlier it was open the service door on the bottom and replace the drive. Now, it requires a dismantling almost full access to the drive, as shown in the Service Guide and interview here:

    You can buy a hard drive for $50-60, but if you're not handy with disassembly, you'll have to pay someone to replace. Repair of local pc shop, Best Buy, Staples, etc.

    BTW I hope you did your recovery media using software on the laptop. You will need to start the laptop and install Windows on a new drive. If this isn't the case, it will be an extra $ 40 for the purchase of HP.

  • How can I create system recovery disc for a new laptop with windows 7 Home Premium?

    I just bought my daughter a new Toshiba Satellite with Windows 7 Home Premium laptop last night. The laptop came with a Windows restore disk. How to create a set of boot from the DVD then when the system fails, or I need a new facility? I created a system repair disc and two-disc Image recovery. Is this enough to fully restore Windows 7 to the initial state of machines? (Technology at best buy assured me that it was nothing that I was able to do and that they would do for me for $70.00.)

    In short: my Dell came with a system recovery disk which was very convenient. I would like to reproduce this convenience with Windows 7. Any help appreciated.


    You will need to follow the manufacturers directions to create the recovery media. Looks like you've done that, but Toshiba could only say with certainty. I recommend that you contact their customer service.

    > I just want to add the disk says starting windows 98, but said of the sticker on the Windows XP-based computer
    It's nothing unusual, even if you get this message that Win XP has been on the recovery disk the message appears because load picture ghost Toshiba files.

    But back to the reason why the recovery procedure fails.
    To be honest I m not very well why the recovery procedure can be completed.
    But I suppose there might be something wrong with the HARD drive or partitions on the HARD disk.

    Try to boot from the CD of Microsoft Win XP and format the entire HARD drive.
    Then try to boot from disk Toshiba again and the devil if you could install XP.
