I have tried to use system recovery via the ways HP provides; Recovery manager, F11 on start up and creating my own recovery disks. None of these worked, even my recovery disks stopped somewhere along the way with an error.
Any specific error message?
What happened or what did you do, that requires a reset to default settings.
(I know from experience that the recovery solution on my PC didn't like the partition resizings that I did.)
Sorry for the delayed response, I wanted to wait until I needed to restart my comp again since power down/up time is horrific.
I got 'Windows has failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem..' Then it proceeds to give me a few steps on how to fix it via a Windows installation dis.
At the bottom it gives me the error:
Info: The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible.
I wish to reformat because Windows likes to randomly shut down, move slow until restart or not allow me to open any programs, saying the file is invalid or something to that effect; I also really just want to have a fresh start on my computer and have backed up what little I want to save.
