  • Damaged HARD disk, need to reinstall windows... but I had installed the Vista upgrade 7!

    Hello

    A few months ago, my computer (HP Pavilion a6700f) decided that he no longer wanted to live. The hard drive is corrupted and I could never get anything from him. I tried many ways, sent him, put it in another computer... it is as if there is never nothing about it initially. (Sad because I stupidly did not save my content). I have come to terms with her being gone, and I'm now looking to reinstall and start over.

    I tried to run the install disc and it won't go to the point where she wants to give me drivers... my question is, because I had updated the computer to its original operating system Vista to Windows 7 when they offered the free update, I have to reinstall windows Vista, and then upgrade again? Or it will allow me to install drivers windows 7? Also, is there somewhere where I can download the installation for my specific computer disks? I used the upgrade disk to reinstall, but he wants than signed drivers.

    I know that sounds a little crazy, but I want to fix it than to buy a new HARD drive. I have my windows for Vista key... Although I don't know if there was another key for the upgrade to Windows 7, as on the package or something... like I did that more.

    I hope this makes sense to someone! Thanks in advance!

    As you have no recovery disk, you will have to order them from service to HP customers in your country if they are still available for a nominal charge:

    If you decide to replace the hard drive, to have one that is not less than 500 GB SATA 7200 RPM like the one you have now.

  • You need to reinstall Windows XP. Do I need the CD of the motherboard?

    Hello

    someone gave me a computer with some virus on it. I want to wipe the hard drive and install xp. Here's the question-have I need motherboard cd (which I don't have) for installation? or can I just put the xp cd in and then finished?

    the mb cd would not have the bios or other important things on that I might need?

    any info will help you.

    Thank you... pat

    (it is a different computer from my other post).

    You can install XP from installing XP, but you need to maybe go online with another computer and download the network drivers (put it on a USB key) and install those first. From there, you can do just that with the new PC. You can visit the Web site of the manufacturers of drivers for everything.

    Most, if not all, stuff on the CD are available online. It's just get online which can be the first hurdle.

    I try a clean reinstall of my Acer ASPIRE running MS WIN XP MEDIA CENTER VERSION 2002 SP3. When the PC was purchased the first task was to burn 2 DVD. Now I can locate the Acer E-recovery on the PC but don't want to save the data, simply create a CD or access to the recovery options. Y at - it an App on the DVD that has them, I can see STCDBOOT.

    Hi BeeCees,

    ·         You have the two blank DVDs you have burned when you got the computer?

    ·         The Acer E-Recovery software does not give an option to clean install without saving the data?

    I recommend you contact Acer support for instructions on how to reformat their PC using the Acer E-Recovery software without migrating their data on.

    1. call the manufacturer of your computer, ask a set of recovery disks. The entire cost is low and the money is well spent.
    The game allows you to restore your computer. Ask a manul on how to use the recovery discs.

    2. While the site of the computer manufacturer, ask to speak to a technician. Ask the person to teach you how to access your computer, Partition Recovery and utilization of the partition to restore your computer to factory State.

    I need 2 reinstall windows vista, but have had is no longer my installation cd, cani always reinstall?

    How to get Vista recovery Media or the Vista recovery Partition on your computer back to factory settings.

    There is no Vista free download legal available.

    Contact your computer manufacturer and ask them to send a recovery disk/s Vista set.

    Normally, they do this for a cost of $ small.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    In addition, ask them if you have a recovery Partition on your computer/laptop to restore it to factory settings.

    See if a manual provided with the computer or go to the manufacturer's website, email or you can call for information on how to make a recovery.

    Normally, you have to press F10 or F11 at startup to start the recovery process...

    Another way I've seen on some models is press F8 and go to a list of startup options, and launch a recovery of standards of plant with it, by selecting the repair option.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Ask them if you can also make recovery disk/s for the recovery Partition in case of a system Crash or hard drive failure.

    They will tell you how to do this.

    Every computer manufacturer has their own way of making recovery disk/s.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Or borrow a good Microsoft Vista DVD (not Dell, HP, etc).
    A good Vista DVD contains all versions of Vista.
    The product key determines which version of Vista is installed.

    There are 2 disks of Vista: one for 32-bit operating system, and one for 64-bit operating system.

    If install a cleaning is required with a good DVD of Vista (not HP, Dell recovery disks):

    Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.

    At the startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, go to Setup/Bios or F12 for the Boot Menu
