I am at wit's end and even though my 8 year old bought his HP G60 with his own money, I am about to hurl it out the window as I wasn't "consulted" and would not have condoned this unfamiliar to me Vista O/S.
All I wanted to do was reset the computer/system to factory defaults. He is gaming now a few years later with nothing important and seemed the quickest way to clean up the PC. I create recovery disks, a NICE LITTLE PROCESS that took 3 entire days. NO JOKE. I had to place every few hours COLD PACKS under and on it because this thing from day one runs hotter then heck.
So voila, it's done. And reboots. And I hope there is some other bored GEEK reading this because I can't find ONE POST on the entire Al Gore Internet that gets me to a command prompt without using install disks. This HP shipped with no install o/s disks. I created the recovery as a safety net, and it's starting over AGAIN and personally, I don't have 3 more days and hot pack maintenance in me before I just buy a new one. PLEASE HELP. It seems simple enough to get to a command prompt and uncompress something I never even intended to compress nor did in any keystroke of my imagination.
He is losing faith in his mother who he believes created MPLS.... got a network problem, I'm your gal. Word won't load, call IT. Windows XP has an issue, UNIX, learning Win7... but this Vista? grrrrrr. Where's the wine for my WHINE?
