You have an IBM Thinkpad T42 and receive an error message “operating system not found”. You purchased rescue and recovery software, but it came with no directions, eight discs in all. Can you walk me through this you ask?
Does your laptop detect your hard drive still? You can go into that laptop’s BIOS, but if it’s not detected you won’t be able to install that rescue and recovery software. How bout I walk you through using those rescue recovery discs first.
Please place first recovery disc into your CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive. Power on that laptop and as soon as you see an IBM logo press your F12 key to get into a boot menu. Choose your CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, or optical drive.
As long as you didn’t change your boot order you don’t need to make any changes. Please place first recovery disc into your CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive. Power on that laptop and as soon as you see an IBM logo press your F12 key to get into a boot menu.
Choose your CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, or optical drive. Press your F12 key before windows tries to boot. You can try rescue and recovery disc.
If F12 doesn’t work try an F1 key or Esc key. Also, do you have any important data on your hard drive that you want to keep? I recommend choosing a restore factory contents.
As long as you don’t have any important data it will format your hard drive and install Windows back to when you bought that computer. Can you try booting off the first of 7 recovery cds you have. Did it try to boot of that CD drive?
You should have a blue IBM button. Power on that laptop and immediately press it. It should bring up a recovery menu.
What options are there? Please press F12. Choose DVD.
Power off that laptop or reboot it and when an IBM logo displays press an F11 key. You may need to erase that hard drive, so that those recovery discs will work, if your having any problems getting them to reinstall an operating system back to factory.
Your HP DV9723CL laptop has become unstable and all your attempts to rectify it have failed. You do not want to reinstall original CD’s since you would lose too much. Is it possible to install Windows 7 without losing drivers?
You have also used PC cleaners to no avail. If you haven’t done so already I recommend running a malwarebytes scan, ccleaner cleaning and registry scans. Also, I recommend you run both chkdsk and sfc scans.
You might need to boot into Windows safe mode with networking for ccleaner and malwarebytes. I recomend you download and run a free MalwareBytes scan. Make sure malwarebytes is updated before you begin that scan.
You may need to boot your computer into Windows safe mode with networking. Also, please download and install free CCleaner after running malwarebytes. Use CCleaner for cleaning your PC and registry cleaning.
You may need to run both clean and registry scans more then once. Once you run afore mentioned scans then open a command prompt window and type “chkdsk c: /f /r” without quotes. Type Y at a volume is in use message.
A chkdsk scan will be scheduled so please reboot that computer and a chkdsk scan should begin. After chkdsk is completed you can type “sfc /scannow” in a command prompt window without quotes. Once you have completed all above scans then boot into normal windows mode and see if that improved your computer’s performance.
Your Toshiba laptop won’t start. You took out a battery and placed it back in. Please take out that laptop’s battery.
Unplug an AC Adapter from a wall outlet and that laptop. Press a power button on that laptop for one minute. Plug an AC adapter into a wall outlet and laptop, then try to power it on.
You might need to completely discharge that battery and then recharge it. If your laptop battery is low on charge, then it might take awhile for it to become fully charged. Discharging it completely can sometimes help to speed up charging time.
Also, another potential solution you can try is to not use your laptop while charging. Some laptops charge faster when not in use. All you have to do is just plug in your AC adapter into your laptop and make certain a laptop battery charging indicator light is on.
However, some laptop lithium-ion batteries have a rapid charge option. Your laptop manufacturer may have shipped special software that will take advantage of rapid charge. Another possibility that your operating system might take advantage of this option.
Through trial and error you may be able to charge your laptop battery faster now.
