System Recovery problem

HP Recommended

Hello, i would like to restore my laptop to the the way it was when i first purchased it, but the problem is that i deleted the files in the recovery partition and i never made recovery disk (something i strongly regret now).

Is there any way i can do it? if so, id really apreciate it, since i made some mistakes with it, and would like it like it used to be.

My laptop is a dv7-1245dx.

Thanks in advance.

thanks for your help... i downloaded recuva, and made a system scan... but i have no idea what files i need to recover

 

checking the list, i saw that the state of restorewiz.exe was unrecoverable, is that it? i have no other way but to purchase the recovery disks? 

 

thanks in advance

John, restorewiz likely comes into play if you have backup data as opposed to vista rec files. Now, the files you want to restore should be tagged as from the D😕 drive or D Part or maybe Rec Part. Be sure you have system and hidden files allowed to be viewed. Let me know After your file restore runs you the vista rec files hopefully will be identifiable

greetings,  I have a pavilion dv7-1245dx.  The problem i ran into was that i formatted the HDD, yes including the backup drive D:.  The issue arose when i was having the initial problem with the CD/DVDW in win7.  Right the be thing it is for is loading MS-Dos and windows 3.1.  I have tried everything under the sun.  The CD/DVDW is still having issues.  I tried to do a boot from a flash drive with no success.  Considering getting a recovery disk but it will do me no good if the CD/DVDW isnt working properly.  My question is, does anyone know how i can get somekind of advanced operating system on my machine?

 

thanks in advance

Dennis

Is your laptop still within the standard 1 year warranty? If so HP will replace the CD/DVDRW drive. It is also possible that it will work with Recovery DVD and the problem actually occurs only after  the laptop is booted up.

 

The link to order Recovery Disks is on your models page HERE The link only works about 20% of the time unfortunately, but you can Contact HP  Chat,email or phone support there.
