I removed a couple old programs off my computer last night and went to sleep. My wife turns it on this morning and that meaasssge appeared on a black screen. I call hp support via membership and they said it was a physical hardware problem and they could not do anything and to go buy a new computer. What an ass! I still have an entire year of hp support left that I’m paying for and I just bought a new Hp printer color laser jet pro M452nw that comes with free support so I really don’t have to pay anything but since I am a share holder of HP and they hit a 52week high last week I feel happy for them even after I never ever received one helping phone call from them. Anybody have a clue on how I can save my all in one?
Well I go a tiny way in agreeing with the HP folk.
No media present suggests a missing Hard Disk or Boot Loader.
So a Repair/Recovery/Rebuild/Re-Install DVD/USB would be my choice, before buying a new anything.
Please pick out anything relevant and ask again, like the XCOPY part.
This First part only works when a valid Recovery Partition is enabled.
If it displays an error message then move onto the Second part, OR if you have data you wish to try and save using the XCOPY command. Then create your own Repair/Recovery/Rebuild/Re-install media or buy a set from HP.
Turn off the computer.
Disconnect all connected devices and cables, Media Drives, USB drives, printers, & faxes. Remove media from internal drives, and remove any recently added internal hardware. Do not disconnect the monitor, keyboard, mouse, or power cord.
Turn on the computer and repeatedly press the F11 key, about once every second, until the Choose an option screen is displayed, and then continue.
On the Choose an Option screen, click Troubleshoot, and work your way through the screens.
Second Part:- This may require another PC. Find and Download your .iso from… (You will need a NON_OEM key for W7; W8.x and W10 should activate automagically from their embedded licence key.)
