My laptop has become very slow, I reinstalled windows and installed original drivers from HP's website. But, my laptop is still very slow. So, I'm hinking about restoring my laptop to factory settings. I don't have HP Backup & Recovery manager or Recovery Partition or any disc that came with laptop. If there is any way I can restore my laptop to Factory Settings, Please inform . And If I need to download anyting please give the link with it. Thank You.
I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.
I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.
You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)
Hi there @HPian_B, Before I provide troubleshooting documentation, I would like to take a minute to welcome you to the HP Support Community, where you can ask questions, find solutions and get help from the community! I read that you would like to reset your HP Pavilion g6-2310ex Notebook PC to factory settings. Please read the document called Backing Up Your Files. This will provide you with ways to back up the files you have on your Notebook. Here is a document for you to read called Creating Recovery Discs or Saving a Recovery Image to a USB Flash Drive. I pulled some information from the document for you. The first thing I would like to make you aware of is that only DVD-R, DVD-R DL, DVD+R, or DVD+R DL discs are compatible with the Recovery Media Creation program. The following disc types are not compatible with the Recovery Media Creation program:CDsDVD-RWDVD+RWDVD-RW DLDVD+RW DLYou will then also see that in the document it says: The Recovery Media Creation software program allows only one complete set of discs to be created.The Recovery Media Creation software program requires an uncorrupted recovery partition (Recovery Image (D) to create a set of discs. Uncorrupted means the recovery partition has not been modified or removed.The creation process takes about 30 minutes per DVD. The entire recovery set does not need to be created in one session.The Recovery Media Creation software can be aborted at any time, except during the writing (burning) process, by clicking Cancel. The next time the Recovery Media Creation software program is run, it automatically starts where it last stopped.You can use the recovery discs you create on your computer on another computer only if the second computer is the same model as the one that created the recovery discs.Here is a document called Performing an HP system recovery (Windows 7) and another called Recover Windows 7 Operating System Using Microsoft Windows Backup and Restore. - This is used to Recover, Restore, or do a Clean Install of Windows 7. Please make sure that you read these documents very carefully before you decided to reset to factory settings. Thanks for being a part of the HP community. Please let me know if this helps resolve the issue by marking this post as "Accept as Solution". If you require further assistance let me know and I will gladly do all I can to help. Please also re-post with the exact error message you received. If you wish to say "thanks" for my effort to help, click the "thumbs up" to give me a Kudos. Thanks!Have a great dayhttp://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Operating-System-and-Recovery/Don-t-have-Recovery-partition-and-Recovery-Manager-to-Reset/td-p/5594620
.... but I didn't touch it.
My d:\ is not empty - it is almost 80% full but when i click on it there are no files. Tried - to the extent of my knowledge - to see if the files are hidden but didn't reach anywhere. Tried a restore point but that didnt work either. Please help
Recovery Manager has hiccups sometimes...
Try re-booting and entering at boot.
If that fails you can order the Recovery Media from HP for a reasonable price.

Hi, I can see C: and D: do not sit next to each other therefore Windows Disk Manager may not like this.

My laptop crashed but I was bale to recover my data from the drive using an external cable to the drive on my desktop PC. I can see the recovery partition, can I make a recover USB from the drive without it being in my laptop?
Hi there, Do you not have Recovery discs?How did you previously load Windows 7 on your Notebook? The media creation software allows only one system image to be created. If you created a set of recovery discs, you can not create a system image on a USB drive. The media creation software requires an uncorrupted recovery partition (FACTORY_IMAGE D. Uncorrupted means that the recovery partition has not been modified or removed. That being said, at this point, I cannot guarantee that the image will work on your USB.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Boot-and-Lockup/Re-Don-t-have-Recovery-partition-and-Recovery-Manager-to/td-p/5596486

I bought my device with Windows 10 as pre-installed OS. Due to *careless* activity, I accidentally deleted the recovery partition of the hard disk. If some day I wanted to do a Windows 10 reset, will the reset process be failed?
I wanted to order for recovery disk from my vendor but they only provide media for Windows 7 pro and using this recovery option will downgrade my device and I cannot use windows 10 without having to buy another activation key (correct me if I am wrong here).
1. You can freely get Win 10 installation media. You can download any version's iso and, using MS's media creation tool, create bootable Win 10 installation media.
See the Tutorial section- search for iso- or search the web.
2. You can undelete deleted partitions. Try a good partition manager.
How to delete Recovery Manager partitoin? After reinstall successfully, it reboots always to Recovery Manager.
Bios is setup with right order of HardDrive first. Tried Boot.exe too.
Is there a command prompt to delete the Recovery Manager partition? I can't get to my desktop.
Why would you want to delete your Recovery Manager partition? It doesn't sound like the reinstall was successful, if your computer continues to boot into recovery mode. Did you use a recovery disk in this process and later remove it? Try booting up in safe mode. If that doesn't work, then I suspect your recovery did not complete successfully.
Also, you may want to try booting from USB and then accessing the hard drive to see if the integrity is OK.

This works sometimes to boot into Recovery and do a Factory restore. 1.Right-click on "Computer" icon and select manage.2.This will launch the Microsoft Management Console.3.On the left side of the MMC, click on "Disk Management" and it will show you all of the partitions.4.Right-click on the "HP Recovery" partition and select "Mark as Active Partition."5.When the warning prompt appears, select "Yes" - Reboot and it will automatically boot into the Recovery Manager (without pressing F11).http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Operating-System-and-Recovery/Recovery-Partition-not-responding-to-Rec-manager/td-p/3416723

Will Vista Recovery Disk Work if there is No Recovery Partition?
Hello, I've used the recovery media creator to create a USB flash drive recovery media.
If i then use that to restore the Windows 7 installation onto a new hard drive (as SSD) will that drive itself have the recovery media partition on it?
So if I then lose the USB stick could I restore again by holding down zero when powering on?
Or does it recover the Windows partition and nothing more?

I am running windows 7 on my laptop. I has windows vista before the upgrade. I had recovery discs for windows vista created from the recovery manager. I tried to make discs for windows 7. I would like to know why it won't let me make a disc for windows 7 because if I had trouble and needed to put in the recovery discs I wouldn't want to use the ones i had for windows vista. what should i do? here are screenshots to show what happens when i try to create the discs for windows 7.

Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup
If I abandon my efforts to install the latest Windows 10 update, would it be a feasible and a good choice for me to command HP Recovery Manager to make the "Minimized Image Recovery" to the factory condition of OS (Windows 7 Home Edition) with drivers and select software? I have used HP Recovery Mgr to backup my files on an external hard drive. Next question: How do I restore those files to my computer? Should the restoration be done in Windows 7 or after I install Windows 10 on my computer?http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Operating-System-and-Recovery/HP-Recovery-Manager-option-of-quot-Minimzed-Image-Recovery/td-p/5843826
I am on Windows 10, and for the past couple months I have had booting/BSOD errors that usually give me "bad_system_config_info" and occasionally, "0xc000021a ". Sometimes, I have been able to boot in by accessing the UEFI settings, other times it seems like it just randomly decides to let me log in to my computer normally. When I am able to login, I check for viruses and I haven't found any, as well as run commands like "sfc/scannow", "chkdsk", or "bootsect". I am trying to recreate recovery media via the HP Recovery Manager, but each time I insert the empty flashdrive, the Recovery Manager suddenly crashes. Please, any response to these combined issues would be greatly appreciated, I haven't been able to use this laptop regularly for months now.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Operating-System-and-Recovery/HP-Recovery-Manager-Crashes-when-I-try-to-make-Recovery/td-p/5757604

Try setting the HD Drive to never turn OFF.
i tried to use the recovery wizard on my SONY VAIO VGN-A250 Laptop and the error messaged i receieved was "VAIO Recovery Wizard cannot find recovery partition" please restart computer. I restarted many times and still get the same message. I also have used the F10 key method and no luck. It wont even open the wizard. I am able to boot. Im out fo warranty and tight on cash and really need my laptop to work fast. Want to remove all from the pc so i can use for school. Please i saw a thread about same problem i had but the thread was closed. if anyone can help please do so.
I have a Compaq Presario CQ62 417NR having problems. It was bought used and at some point started having cd-drive malfunctions where it no longer detected hardware and the drive didn't work. I reloaded completely from the recovery partition, it worked fine several days and I was able to install office but after that it stopped working again. I have tried an external usb cd drive but that doesn't work either. At this point, I'm thinking it has driver issues from the recovery and I'd need to buy the disk from HP but I'd like a second opinion as they are not free.
Does anyone have an idea of what the problem is? I've never had this happen on a fresh install...
could you check on device manager does any yellow or red exclamation?http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/528118/driver-issues-on-fresh-hp-recovery-from-recovery-partition/

I have a customer's NB200 on the bench. It came in with complete OS failure and would not boot from either the OS partition or the Recovery Partition.
I have checked the Hard Disk and it is in perfect working order. However it seems that all is not well as I cannot get it to boot from the recovery partition even after holding doen the 0 key.
I tried to instruct it to start from the BOOT.INI file by pointing a 'revoery' option at the partition but it just comes up with an error saying <Windows Path>\system32\HAL file is either missing or corrupt. Does anyone know how I should instruct the partition to start or how I could extract the information from the image files?
If you check page 48 in user?s manuals you will find exact description how to start recovery installation. The procedure on this NB200 is same or, at least, similar to all notebooks delivered with HDD recovery image. Please check it.

i deleted lenovo recovery partition on g510 laptop and don't have recovery dvd.
i need to recover laptop to original state.
please help me
Moderator comment: Post split out of Knowledgebase. Subject edited to match content.
Welcome to the Forums.
If you didn't create a recovery drive (using this method) then I recommend you contact lenovo on how to obtain a copy of the recovery disc which restores the preloaded Win8 OS, drivers, and apps.
Alternatively, if the machine came preloaded Windows 8 or Windows 8.1, you can try the following:
For Windows 8:
1. Obtain a Windows 8 installation disc and use it to reinstall Windows (if the system is preloaded with Windows 8, the installation will automatically detect the Win8 product key in the UEFI Firmware / BIOS and will automatically activate Windows).
2. From here, you can obtain the drivers from the G510 drivers page and/or upgrade to Windows 8.1 via the Windows Store (see this guide)
For Windows 8.1:
1. Check this guide on how to obtain a Windows 8.1 ISO (see Option One)
2. When finished, follow this guide to make a bootable UEFI Win8.1 installer via DVD or USB flashdrive and use it to install Windows (the installation should be able to detect the Windows 8.1 product key in the UEFI firmware that will let you activate Windows).
3. If successful, obtain the drivers from the G510 drivers page
Well I finished my project - the program script allows me to create MBR and GPT hard drive partitions with a recovery image partition. The script also allows me to install 3 different versions of windows. and lastly it allows me to capture a recovery (push button reset) image. which can then be used to create recovery media..
Here is the Menu Snippet:
(A) CREATE A "BIOS_MBR TYPE" PARTITION STRUCTURE
(B) CREATE A "UEFI_GPT TYPE" PARTITION STRUCTURE
(C) CAPTURE AND CREATE A "BIOS_MBR TYPE" RECOVERY
(D) CAPTURE AND CREATE A "UEFI TYPE" RECOVERY
(I) INSTALL MICROSOFT WINDOWS FROM THIS USB DRIVE
(X) QUIT THIS PROGRAM
WinPE 5.1 was the preinstallation environment use for testing
Good one! I always have to go back and look up the procedure and commands when doing this. Really a help for an old brain.http://www.eightforums.com/installation-setup/57595-create-recovery-partition-recovery-image.html
Hello! I'm a owner of a HP Mini 5101. It has a function to press F11 to return the system into the "out-of-the-box" state. But my problem starts here. When I press F11 I imediately get a screen that says Windows Boot manager on top and and error : 0xc000000e and required device is inaccessible. This started after I made a "clean" install with the DVD Windows 7 that came with the computer as I tried to avoid all the "crapware" that comes included with the new notebook. If I boot into Windows, the HP_RECOVERY partition is visible and the HP recovery image is on it. Is there anyway to get the F11 recovery back to working state? I have some BCD editing knowledge in that would help in any way with my problem..... Thank you very much! U
Thank you very much for getting back to me so fast.I have to apologize as I did not explain my problem in the right way. Technically I am able to boot the partition, but the problem occurs when the partition needs to boot into WinRE or WinPE I guess so that the recovery can start. The loading process gets stuck immediately at the beginning even before anything "Windows related stuff" starts loading. So about five seconds after I turn on the computer and boot into the recovery partition, or pressing F11 the error that I'm describing shows up. Update: I managed to fix my problem. After setting the recovery partition to active, and booting from the installation USB with windows 7, I managed to fix the mbr that was corrupted and the partition didn't know what to boot. So after fixing it, i had no problem running the recovery. Thank you!http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Operating-System-and-Recovery/F11-HP-recovery-doesn-t-boot-into-recovery-partition/td-p/197434
I created a Factory Recovery Media on a Flash Drive from Dell Backup & Recovery Panel.
Do I still need to keep the Factory Recovery Partition (6GB) on my C:\ Drive?
Or can I delete this partition and still be able to restore my Software back to it's factory image using the bootable Recovery media Flash Drive?
Thank You for writing to us!
We would not recommend you to delete the factory image on the system,also please check the factory image that you have backed up.
If you have a recovery drive - that includes the recovery partition - made on one computer, but have a toshiba laptop with a bad drive (but the recovery partition is ok), can you replace/copy the partition on the recovery drive with the recovery partition from the bad laptop HD?
My friend's laptop would not boot, and would not factory recover, reset, or refresh. I tried to clone the hard drive before I started messing with the disc. It would not clone, but I was able to copy the recovery partition to a USB drive.
He never make recovery discs, so could not re-install, but I can borrow the recovery drive that my aunt made for her laptop.
There may be a couple problems with that. The Factory Image is too large to be just copied to a Fat32 partition, so it has to be divided in sections. You could do that using DISM and put the .swm files in the sources folder. Not even a guess as to whether it would work.
There is other information concerning the configuration of the computer making the recovery drive. If it was made on a different computer, that info would probably be incorrect and not allow a reset.
I have never tried, but you might be able to copy the Factory image to a drive formatted as NTFS and then set the recovery to look for that file for a reset. Maybe you have already copied the entire recovery partition...
If you assume the factory image is the same for both systems, can you copy the entire Recovery Image partition from the bad drive to the good drive?

I tried also with the makeing the recovery partition active and still nothing.I download recovery partition software from official HP site and still nothing. The instalation is starting but at one point of the instalation it says "The recovery manager setup has stop working" and there is no solution online.Please if you can help me to get my original software. Thankking you in advanced
sounds like you need to order a set of recovery disks from hp, you can usually find them online at www.hp.com/support

yeah i was just seeing if you could make a recovery disk from the recovery partition? it wouldnt make sense to why u couldnt do it?? but how to go about it??
You would do that by creating an image. Then burn it to a cd.
Do you mean a XP recovery Console cd? or a whole system image?
Does anyone know how to create an ISO from a recovery partition? I'm looking to create a bootable flash drive to install XP on my ASUS 1005HA. (I have Windows 7 starter, but I don't want to pay the 80 bones to upgrade to the full version.) I also have an ASUS 1000HA with XP--and the corresponding recovery partition--that I'd like to use to put XP on the new netbook. Unfortunately, I don't have a USB optical drive (I'm cheap--sue me) and so I need to use the bootable flash drive.
Long story short, I know how to make the bootable flash, but I need an XP recovery ISO to load onto it to allow me to install the OS. Anybody know how I can make one from the recovery partitions?

Hello I have a Lenovo laptop running Windows Professional and I need about Recovery - Windows 7 Partition/Recovery methods to somehow use system recover to sort out the multiple problems The OS was installed when it was new and no WIndows OS DVD's were issued with the laptop The WIndows install is legit The problem is only the failure of Lenovo to give customers the OS DVD's with the new laptop The Lenovo warranty period has expired and their help support is less than useless The about Recovery Partition/Recovery methods - Windows 7 recovery method in the Lenovo instructions does not work I press the Novo key and F and get to the start of the recovery process where I select language and then when I click Next the process stops with an alert saying I need to log in - see system administrator So I am unable to use the built in Recovery method I read there are several other methods of recovery and two of them I have explored Mircosoft website has a software-recovery section where I can enter my Product ID Key and language and download an ISO for burning to be used as an install disk for fresh WIndow Professional install The required character Windows Key xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx which I obtained using a registration key app but is not accepted by Microsoft so I cannot proceed to download an ISO I believe the Key is correct as it matches what I recorded one year ago and is same using two different Key recovery apps The Lenovo website gave instructions for burning DVD's to be used for restoring the laptop to as released from factory settings I have successfully burned all three DVD's from the Recovery partition and since this is my last option and there is some uncertainty about whether or not I have the correct Windows Key I hesitate to proceed with this option because if I am asked to key in the Windows Key and it is not correct accepted I am in a worse position than I am was before I attempted recovery I can't find any references to exactly what happens using these reovery disks so I am uncertain if I'm going to encounter the potential for the Product key barrier So it all comes down to one question If I use these Recovery DVD's is the Windows registration key included already so I can restore to as new without hiccups If the Windows Key is stored in the recovery disks I can proceed and all will be well but if not I will be stuck
The site that you inputted your key does not accept OEM keys. Right click Computer > Properties. At the bottom of the page you will see your PID. If it has OEM in the PID then you cannot download an iso from Microsoft's site. You can input your key into the Ultimate PID checker and it will tell you the key is Valid.
If you created DVD's using lenovo's utility then you should not need to enter any key. It will be pre-activated.
When it asks you to login does it have a user and password box? Can you post a screen shot of the window?

see if there is something among this lot to acheive what you want
I earlier wanted to format my Lenovo laptop (with vista home basic SP1) but then dropped the idea when i found out i had not received the vista OS disc with the laptop.
Now i discovered tht a recovery cud be made from my computer itself through the recovery partition, but when i checked, the recovery partition SCREAMS THAT ITS 100% FREE! , although I have never formatted it since i bought it!
It was my understanding that a recovery is pre-installed...
Now i need to know if a recovery is still possible....!
As a bonus, my DVD optical drive is also not working!
Thanks in advance!
I would not be concerned, the partition is not the way to go, anyway. If you use the partition you must upadate, install software, change settings etc. Why not use the free Macrium Reflect, put an image on your hard drive (upadate once a month). When disaster comes use the image to reinstall. Hey its free and you do not have to worry about reinstalling software etc.
For the record the partion should really be there. You could donwload the free windirstat and see just what is on that hard drive.
For the record the partition is probably there, but they usually hide it. In that case Windirstat may not be of benefit, either.
EDIT: In addition, if you put the image on your external hard drive (as you should) you have protection even if the HD fails.

Hi everybody I have HP or Disks Partition Recovery Recovery Desktop with Windows Home Recovery Disks or Recovery Partition Premium When I was using Vista there was a difference between using recovery partition on the hard drive to restore Windows and Recovery disks that you create yourself The Recovery Partition one would only restore your computer to it's shipping condition - meaning that if I had partitioned the drive and had Windows partition separately Recovery Disks or Recovery Partition from my other files it will Recovery Disks or Recovery Partition erase all of it and get rid of that new partition of mine along with all my files If I used the disks - it will give me an option of shipping condition OR just to reinstall Windows partition of my drive so all other files are not erased In Windows the created disks give me only one choice - Factory System Reset Does it mean that it will erase it ALL or just the Windows partition I really don't want to back up GB of my data just need the Windows partition erased and reinstalled Will Recovery Disks do that or is there any other option for doing it with Windows
I would not run the Recovery Disks without backing up data. It doesn't sound like they will let you choose where to install Win7.

currently I am using vista ultimate. I have only one partition (C:)
i want to install vista home premium onto (C:) but my dvd/cd drive does not work. I do not have (or want to use) a portable DVD/CD drive to reformat.
Im thinking of creating another partition (D:) and then transfering the "bootable folder for home premium", from another computer to (D:) via usb drive.
Can I boot from this new partition (D:) and reformat (C:)?

However, Vista must be installed from DVD.
Regards. . .
As the topic says; after installation of a fresh copy from the original disc win7, my second partition "D" has been renamed itself to the Recovery Partition. You can see it only in the application "Disk Management". I do not have access into it at all. When I click the right mouse button ?help? option appears only . There are very important files to me.
I tried to use EASEUS Partition Master but I'm afraid of losing data.
Have you taken the install disc out ? Sounds dumb but the d: partition is generally a reserved partition and indicates your CD-ROM drive, to me it looks like your install disc, the file system is UDF which is universal disc format, you have two recovery partitions on top. Remove the disk, reboot. Then choose a different letter other than D for your recovery partition.. Best to start with z
The fact that the file encryption is UDF, you will not have the ability to modify it, its not NTFS, FAT or FAT32.
Need some help. I recently bought Acer Aspire 5560G. It comes with 500GB HDD with only one partition which is drive C. There are 2 hidden partitions as well. I would like to split my drive C in 2 partitions without effecting my Recovery partition. Is it possible??? if yes than what's the best way?? Help would be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
I think the easiest way to accomplish that is to shrink your C: partition. That will create unallocated space. And the unallocated space can be used to create a new partition.
Partition or Volume - Shrink
Partition or Volume - Create New
I deleted the unwanted recovery partitions on windows 8.1 using 'Diskpart'.The unallocated memories were created but they cannot be used to extend any other partitions even by using Diskpart.I am just able to create them as normal partitions buth
not by combining them but each seperately.Any solution for this...pls...
Is there a way to boot directly off of D:(recovery partition) so i can restore my gateway laptop to factory settings? Right now I get a "BOOTMGR is missing" error message. The C: drive is completely gone, but like i said, the recovery partition is intact.
Thanks in advance.
Edit: I tried hitting f11 at startup to bring up gateways recovery menu, but again nothing. I have the windows vista recovery environment disc also if that helps.
There are files on c: used by the recovery partition on d:
Boot with your Vista recovery DVD and reinstall Vista.

I d/l Win8.0 Pro (3 upgrade copies) in the very beginning of its life when it was $40x2 and $15 from Win7Pro. Now the hitch: one of the PC's crapped out and in order to use the recovery or reset option, the OS asks for "recovery media" which I don't have. BTW, I upgraded to Win8.1 in the interim but my product key only works in Win8.0. MS tech support is OK but their solutions so far are just so-so and my spare PC just sits there. I have a working 8.1 PC, does anyone know which files in Win8.1 tend to be corrupted so that I could copy them from the working PC to the non working one?
Does the non-working PC still boot. If it does, open an elevated command prompt and do "sfc /scannow" It can repair some corrupted files.
Some files in \Windows are owned and managed by an internal account called TrustedInstaller. You cannot modify or replace those files in any way; so copying files over from another PC won't work.
Corrupted files usually indicate a hard drive with bad sectors. That usually can be dealt with by right click on C drive, choose Properties > Tools tab > Check Now button. There aren't any files that "tend to be corrupted".
I had to do a hard reset on my phone and now cant log into my Microsoft acount
You'll have to log on to your Microsoft account via desktop and look for the device reset protection options
If you disable it in your account the key will be generated.

My husband was recently given a laptop by a vendor whom he doesn't see often. As far as I know it works, however, it has a password which I cannot crack even using the password hint. There is no disc drive so I loaded basically a hacker program on a flash drive to get the password. I have followed all of the instructions but the laptop won't load past "Press F2 to enter setup" with the flash drive in. I then have to force it to shut off, holding down the power button. I don't know what else to do at this point since it did not come with the distcs. If I can't figure it out I will have to wait until my husband does another job with the guy. Any help would be appreciated.

Yes, that is what a USB recovery drive is for. Thing is, it will take you back to day one when you made it if you do a complete restore. Even with refresh you will lose some user installed programs. Back up any data you don't want to lose.
Could run a chkdsk /r from elevated command prompt. Reboot and it will take some time to complete. Could also download the drive manufacturers utility to check/repair the drive. At least you'll feel better about the drive itself before going on to something more serious.
I have read the tutorials, and I am having trouble with method three (Offline NT Password Recovery), which is what it need to do being that there are no other accounts on his laptop.
My situation - my friend's brother passed away unexpectedly and I need to retrieve information on his computer (pictures mainly) for the funeral service. I have used OphCrack and Offline NT PR, but I'm not sure if I'm using them correctly.
Please understand that this is a very serious post, and any and all replies will be helpful. Thank you for your time.
I am guessing that you are referring to Method 3 in this Tutorial

which in turn refers you to

If you did not make the factory recovery discs during the initial setup of you laptop, your only recourse at this time is to order them from the manufacturer. You have no other options available at this time to recover your laptop to "factory status."
Hi guys I am trying to fix this HP Compaq dx 2300 Microtower. It is running Windos XP Pro.When it is turned on there is a message on the screen that says:Boot from CDWarning: A partion overlaps your system recovery partition. Press F10 to start system recovery anyway or another key to delete the recovery partition.I did not press F10, instead i pressed any other key. The reason is because I think it will ask for a Restore CD when I press F10. and the restore CD will surely clean out everyting on the hard drive. How on earth can I get this message on screen out of the way....and is there another way around this ??Please help me......
Since this is an HP specific recovery partition, I really would suggest contacting HP Technical Support as they may have better information for you.I would suggest using their online chat since it is usually faster and they are more willing to help even out of warranty (in my experience)However if they refuse to help you out of warranty. (assuming it is out of warranty)My following suggestions are assuming that you have proper HP restore media (cd/dvd) in their entirety in proper format and are not scratched or damaged.Sometimes if the recovery partition of your hard drive is damaged, even doing a recovery using the cd/dvd is not going to re-write the recovery partition, it will only reformat and recover the main user parition.For that reason what I really would suggest is to backup your files, and reformat your hard drive from another computer. Then use the restore cd's to re-write the partitions on the drive.http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/194736/a-partition-overlaps-system-recovery-partition/

Does anybody know of a why to find out the existing password from the main computer, so that I can get the back up computer working again? Or, at the least, a way to reset both of them if necessary?

My problem is as follows.
i installed monitoring and filtering software on the computer.
my kids just restarted the computer and choose refresh and it was gone.
in win 7 i set a new restore point and deleted the previous ones solving that problem.
i know that there is a way to not allow using the system refresh with group policy and regedit hacks but i would not like to have to go down that road.
so the question is how can i control what the restore and refresh settings do?
Hi jogold and welcome to Eight Forums,
Actually i dont think so there is a way to controll what refresh and restore option does cause they have simple function:
_The refresh option removes all the 3rd Party software contents and reset all your windows settings but it doesnt remove your windows store apps, and you can roll back by a restore point from this.
_While the restore option remove evrything and reset all windows settings ad put your windows to stock like when you bought it, and all the restore points will be removed.
So i dont see any reason why do you want to controll these 2 settings.
If you want to get that monitoring software back go to restore to an earlier point center and follow on screen instructions, or refer to this article:How to refresh, reset, or restore your PC - Windows Help

Malware can do terrible things to the PC. I suspect either the malware or dual booting has disabled the Recovery access. Assuming the Recovery Partition is still there on the hard drive, it might be possible to get Recovery Manager to run and then you can make the Recovery Disk Set. Typical view of the Recovery Partition shows as a "lock", so the need to release that is imperative. I have not tried, but perhaps the Linux you are running on the dual boot option can look inside the partition and mark that partition as active. Then reboot using the Recovery Partition as the boot. I do know that some have had success after marking the Recovery Partition as active.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Operating-System-and-Recovery/recovery-to-factory-reset-not-working/td-p/5689907

Hi all, I own a Lenovo Flex 10 and due to several circumstances I need to reset the notebook back to factory settings using the recovery partition. In the owners manual as well as in the maintenance manual there is pointed out to press the so-called Push-Button Reset. At the Flex 14 and Flex 15 notebooks it is described as NOVO button. Where is this button located at the Flex 10 notebook?Neither the owners, nor the maintenace manual shows any hints to find this button.Also there is no hint using any key combination (like Fn+F2 to enter the BIOS) to enter the recovery process. I also explored the Lenovo community and knowledgebase and the only thing I found was that misterious Push-Button Reset, where I'm looking for. So the question is how can I start the recovery process?Potentially is there any option in the BIOS? Kind regardsJoerg
For those still looking for the answer, try following step: 1- Shutdown your FLEX10 system2- Press F1 and hold3- Power on system4- Proceed with system restore/reset Hope that helpshttps://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-IdeaPad-100-305-500-Edge/Flex-10-Recovery-quot-Push-Button-Reset-quot/td-p/1579098

I have a Fujitsu Siemens notebook with Windows XP Home Edition, and I was wondering if anyone of you could tell me how I should do a system reset to the factory settings.
I don't have any recovery CD's or so, but I did save everything important on the notebook, so I wouldn't mind if I'd 'lose' everything on it.
My parents also want to perform a system reset on their notebook (they also don't have any recovery CD's, but saved all the important files). They have a Toshiba with Windows Vista.
Thanks in advance (and sorry if my English is bad).
If you tell us the models of these systems, then someone can look up how they are set up.
If CDs are needed to restore/recover...well, I don't think there's any advice that would be useful other than to try to obtain said CDs (or buy a version of XP).
There is no set policy that I can see that determines how these systems are set up. Some have recovery CDs alone..some need recovery CDs and a restore/recovery partition...some employ just a recovery partition. With some vendors, it varies by model.
