  • Hard drive does not start after the use of the recovery on USB Manager

    The hard drive on HP G62t - 350 CTO Notebook to my newphew failed. I could create a USB recovery in the Recovery Manager. I installed a new 120 GB SSD. The original hard drive was bigger, do not remember now but 250 or 500 GB. I know that the recover the system after the hard is replaced (Windows 7) said "to avoid problems, install a hard drive as big or bigger than the replaced hard disk", but that's a question for later.

    Computer started fine of USB (in fact, is set to boot from USB if present by default). Recovery Manager starts. I choose minimum installation. He goes through the process of partitioning the SSD and copying files. Said so to remove the external media and restart, the computer will restart several times during the process, blah, blah, blah. I get out of USB and restarted, but after POST I get "no bootable media present.

    If I try to reboot, leaving the USB in, it starts in USB and that we are at the beginning. I am able to confirm with a rescue disk, the SSD has an NTFS partition that had Windows files copied to it and a large amount of unallocated space. (Something like 60% / 40%).


    1. How make bootable hard drive for, and if it was bootable, recovery processes complete?
    2. What is happening with the partitions? He creates the partition recovery first, and then after the start, the recovery partition installs the operating system? If so, I might have to give up this process because since I'm moving to smaller storage, I don't want to devote half of the drive to a recovery partition.
    3. Official recovery media help? A technician told me that he would do so, but couldn't explain to my satisfaction why the USB I created with Recovery Manager does not work, so I'm suspicious of the assertion that the media created by HP as opposed to media created by me using the own HP software would be better, and since the computer is under warranty I don't want to spend $30 + to find out.

    Most of the people who have installed an SSD that was smaller than the reader of the factory were unable to use any medium recovery HP with the SSD.

    It's just the way it works - when a block of sheets is emptied, it is related to the non freelist, but is also related to the appropriate location in the structure of the index. It will be detached from the structure by a coalesce, or when it is necessary to use a free block to manage the new Oracle data.

    If you want a few reasonable guesses why:

      (a) it's probably easier to deal with read-consistency of the index
      (b) separate a block of the structure is expensive (you need to change the blocks to the left, right and above), Oracle takes the bet that you are likely to re - insert data in the same block in the near future.

  • Hard drive does not correctly identified under Win7 64 bit and the blocking of access to the disk.

    I use a Maxtor Ultra 16 L01F500 SATA, but Win7 (64 bit) is to identify it as a SCSI drive Maxtor L100P0. He not only identifies by mistake, but also blocks access. I get an error indicating that the location is not accessible. Under computer management, the drive is there and gives the correct size and format (NTFS - was previously my main drive until I upgraded to Win7) when we look under properties. Also, Windows shows the drive is healthy and active. Don't know what to do to get access again (I have admin access to the player thought that would help). I also ran the disk error checking and it showed no errors. You don't know why Win7 has misidentified or why it will not allow access. Any info or help would be appreciated. I can't seem to find the drivers for the drive, otherwise I would have tried that. Thanks for reading.

  • Photosmart Premium: does not copy after replacing black toner XL and colors - but has not replaced the small black

    Printer recognized all the replaced cartridges. It shows a black small as 'used '.  You wonder why it won't copy from the XL Black cartridges.  page is completely blank, unless I select color copy and then only a header is printed.

    I was wondering if I should also replace the small black cartridge.  If so, what is the purpose of the XL Black cartridge?

    test page printed out as Virgin.

    Hi @lisasw2003,

    Welcome to the Forums of HP Support! I understand that you have recently changed the cartridges on your HP Photosmart Premium, you have not replaced a smaller, and now, you are not able to copy.  One of the black cartridges is regular black and the other is a photo in the black, which is the difference between the two. Although you can't print photos, it gets ink in the cartridges.

    Please replace the used cartridge and you should be up and running again. I hope this helps!

    Thank you

  • Computer does not start after the screen of the bios, Compaq Presario SR1023WM

    Ok. Trying to fix a friend's computer and seem to have met a strange barrier.

    Problem: The computer does not start after the bios screen.

    Details: When you turn on the computer, the compaq logo with intel inside is and has the < F1 Setup > and < F10 System Recovery > options listed as well.  And that's it as far as the computer becomes.  After that the computer just locked up, no work of buttons on the keyboard lights keyboard ect ect.  I tried the puree on the F1 key, as soon as I turn on the computer and I can handle so he can say * entering setup * but it freezes again after this point.  I already tried to eliminate the possible sources of the problem, removed all expansion cards, HDD and Dvd Rom module only disconnected, only memory (256 MB ddr 2700), power, vga and keyboard connected.  Ive also used the jumper on the motherboard to clear the cmos, hoping that would solve the problem without success.  I tried using a different memory stick and different memory as well...  Tried to use both a ps2 and a usb keyboard... Ive even tried pulling the rider for the protection of the bios password (even if she did not have a password on it, just try everything I can think of).

    The installed bios version is 3.1, and that's all that I know on the computer at this point, except that the website tells me to him. & LC = on & CC = US & DLC = in & Submit.y = 5 & Submit.x = 3 & lang = to & CC = US <-link to the Web page for the model #.

    I'm basically at a loss on this one, so if someone feels scroll line-by-line of their brains on this one, I'd be very happy.

    I have a pretty strong understanding of computer repair, so feel free to give me something to try.

    If you need more information out of me, let me know as well.

    Try to clear the CMOS again but this time remove CMOS battery and hold the power button on a few seconds. Replace the battery, then try to start back to the top.

    At the back of the pc is the condition of the PSU led green or flashing?
