That is because the Recovery cannot access the partition where the recovery program is located. Sounds as if you lost both the Recovery and the Windows OS. If the Drive is working ok, reinstall Windows from the start.

SOURCE: Need to set R3000 Compacq laptop to factory settings.

Compaq? Oh, then you are going to have a hard disk partition with the recovery files, so you don't need the disks. You have made it, that's great, because in case you cannot access the hard disk, you cannot initiate a recovery without ordering recovery CDs for your model from HP.

There are a number of ways to do it.

Try pressing F9 at startup (when the Compaq or HP logo shows up), and if it doesn't work, see the key for System Recovery at the bottom of the screen. It will recover, just follow the instructions on the screen.

Also, you can insert the first disk anytime, or boot from it when you start the PC up.

Or, you can use the Recovery Manager software in the PC that is pre-installed and it will help you to do a System Recovery from the files on your recovery partition.

Please rate this answer, I badly need it.

When you hit F12 or whatever F key to go to the boot drive menu, make sure the cd is in and that you select CD/DVD Drive and the dvd should prompt you to hit any key or will automatically start loading for the recovery. Just tell me if you need further assistance.

My Lenovo laptop starts up with a screen that says preparing automatic repair. it then goes to a blue screen stating "recovery" and that its missing files and error code 0xc0000185. what can I do


you might want to talk to Lenovo support

Official Lenovo Support Home Lenovo Support US
The reason is being this is Windows 8 and it sounds like a possible hardrive issue. since the recovery partition can't be accessed. I am assuming that the computer is new You be might be able to get it fixed it for free.

I slam my computer screen shut.and now when Iturned it on it says preparing automatic repair and them wait the screen is blue. But.you can see the mouse and move it but.no screen sign on


automatic repair is initiated in case of windows corruption due to malware and viruses. it may happen due to incomplete updates and improper shut down.

you need to run the repair. if that does not work, then you will need a windows expert (technician) to work on your computer. call 1-877-805-1027 .. a reliable tech support company that will not scam you or charge too much.

Hi there


Go START, in the window type "cmd" without the quotation marks. A new (backdoor) screen will open. Type "chkdsk/f" without quotation marks exactly where the cursor blinks and hit ENTER. Your corrupt Windows files will be repaired for you automatically. There is another way to do this: MY Computer> your HDD> TOOLs> there is a scan disk that repairs errors, just tick the box. and then wait. be patient as this takes awhile.

ASUS T100 stuck at preparing automatic repair message will.not reboot


Hello there, i just owned a brand new Asus T100 for 2 days and today on the 3rd day after purchasing, i faced problems during boot/start up where the laptop gets frozen on the Asus logo screen.
I tried holding down the power button for 10 seconds and turned it on again. It ran a series of windows software updates before the start up, then after all software updates have been completed, the laptop resumed to freeze at the Asus logo screen again. I tried holding the power button for 10 secs followed by holding the power button and volume up button at the same time, to get into automatic repair/repair mode. THIS HELPS, get into the repair mode!

To cut it short, i tried the other advanced options as well as the restart button in the repair mode but to no avail. After carefully reading the different options in the 'advanced options' in repair mode...
Here's what worked for me:
1) If you're stuck at the Asus logo screen which doesn't seem to boot for ages or at least 10 minutes, hold down the power button for 10 seconds and let the screen turn black. (I did this with my charger plugged in, not too sure if it matters)
2) Count to 10 seconds. Switch the laptop on by HOLDING THE POWER BUTTON + VOLUME UP BUTTON at the same time. This will send the laptop into an 'automatic repair', followed by a 'diagnosing this PC' and after which you will see a blue screen which is the repair mode.
3) On the blue screen you will see 2 buttons, 'Restart' and 'Advanced Options'. Click on 'Advanced Options'. (DO NOT CLICK RESTART, it does nothing as you will get stuck again at the logo screen)
4) After clicking 'Advanced Options', click 'Advanced ....' (i forgot what exactly) and click 'STARTUP REPAIR'. This is the crucial part.Then follow whatever the system promts you.
5) Afterwards, it will attempt to repair your system then lead you back to the logo screen for startup.
6) Wait a few minutes and you should be able to get to your login screen as usual.

Hope this helps. I chanced upon it by guessing which would actually help me.

Sir, i have sony vaio E SERIES VPCEA23EN. Suddenly it stopped working. problem is after switching power on it boots to open either normally or launch startup repair (recommended). In either case it won't...


I would load your recovery discs, that will fix it. The warranty does not cover software, only hardware that fails like display, motherboard, hard drive etc.

Slammed ZToshiba A135-2276 will not boot


I'm not sure why you slammed the system shut, bu if it was to do with a system performance issue, the most likely answer is that the hard disk drive is or has failed.

If running Windows XP, boot to recovery console, see if you can run chkdsk on the drive. If Vista, boot to the DVD and run repair my computer.

Most likely, if those options do not get the system to boot, a hard drive replacement may be in the cards.
