Vista 64-bit, 500gb hd, 4gb mem., pavilian dv-6 1280us Entertainment sys.
what has changed, will not read the mouse, installed a registry checker, after cleaning registry, it asked to do a restart, no the system will not run in any mode, not safe, not safe with internet, not dos, not last known good config., it goes to the blue error screen, does a mem dump, asks to do disk repair, this fails, asks to go back to a earlier registry time, this does not work, asks to send info to Microsoft, I click ok, then finishes, I click finish and it shuts off again. same cycle in any mode attempted. It does run hard it get hot, it ususlly shuts itself down if it gets too hot, it has been this way sense I bought the system. I let it cool, restart and still goes through same process.
System restore does not work, it goes back to the fatel error blue page, then shuts down, my system did not come with a cd/dvd for restoring windows, sealed box, the store says they now come with restore in drive D: but it totally clears my system and starts from scratch, reloading everything to defult and new.
I could not get in using dos command, however the advanced option after going through the restore attempt phase, has a dos entry page ava. I am at least moving folders I wish to keep onto a portable HD.
sense I am now in dos, any ideas to fix the computer without having to clear it and start over?
due to Hp and not supplying cd's with the new computers, they are partitioned with a recovery drive, however do I have to do a system restore to its original factory settings before I use my set of backup disks that I made when I first bought and booted up my computer when it was new? or is there a way to start this set of backup disks from dos. I can not get to windows, I have tired all possibilities for the last week, now I have decided to completely start over.
1. is there a way to start the restore process for my backup disks from dos? I have 32 disks made from original backup, cant find an exicutable file on them, how are they used.
2. do I have to first do a full system restore to factory settings before being able to use these backup disks?
