    Hi,

    If you get any more BSODs - if you report the number it can help to diagnose the issue :)

    When you say it will not allow install, recovery etc. please explain what steps you are taking here to achieve this?

    Made a set of recovery dvd's after the purchase of my laptop and recently went to check them out and disk one comes up with a read error and has no files on it. Disks three and four read properly and have files located on them. I went to create another set but am unable to do so because I have already made a set. Is there a fix for this issue? I am not sure why the other disks read but not the fisrt one?

    How old is your version of the WIndows 10 installer?.. I would recommend you try the latest

    from https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/software-download/windows10

    a couple of other suggestions..

    1) enter the computers BIOS and 'load defaults', save and exit and try again

     

    2) Try installing a different OS like Ubuntu Linux (https://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop) .. if that installs fine then you can just have Windows 10 install over the top of that again, or else if that fails I would suspect the physical drive is at fault.

     

    Good Luck!

  • 01/03/19--16:20: Windows Recovery USB
  • I need to find a Windows 10 (64bit) Recovery USB for a HP Pavilion Notebook - 17z-f100 CTO PN J7V87AV SN [removed].  There is not one listed in the support Software download page.  Any ideas?

  • If your PC came with Windows 10 originally, you don't need HP's recovery media.

    First off, NEVER use Windows Update to do a Feature Upgrade, or down load a Windows ISO file onto your PC, as with only a 32GB "drive" it will run out of room, quickly.

    Second, if you MUST do a Feature Upgrade (i.e., v1809), then create Win10 install media using another PC and this link:  

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

    Third, here 

    here are some things you can do to recover some of the disk space:

    Also, the community Win10 Forums has the following suggestions:

  • If your PC came with Win10 preinstalled, you can purchase one from HP using this link:  http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/bph07143

    Good Luck

    The Community can not provide any assistance without some details ...

    So, please provide the following:
    1) detailed model number of the PC
    2) OS version the PC is running (i.e., Win7, Win8x, Win10)
    3) Age of the PC

    Awaiting your replies ...

    Move the cursor to the task bar and the blue circle displays.  Can't access the start or settings menu or anything else on the task bar.  Program work that have an icon on the screen.

  • 01/03/19--17:20: Laptop completely dead
  • My pavilion touchscreen laptop was working fine and then all of a sudden one morning was completely dead. Doesn’t turn on, display anything, no lights go on when I plug it in, and no fans are running. The only thing that happens is it heats up on the bottom left corner. I need this laptop because I am a college student and I don’t have the amount of money to buy a new laptop completely. Any help?

  • Hi,

     

    The reason there is no W10 recovery media available for your PC's model series is because it came with W8.1.

     

    So, you have two options...purchase the W8.1 recovery media from HP at the link below...then after you install W8.1, click on the blue Update Now button to reinstall W10, at the second link I posted.

     

    https://support.hp.com/us-en/mediaorder/HP-Pavilion-17-f100-Notebook-PC-series/7234909/model/7468122/softwareitem/790734-001/step1

     

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

     

    Or you can just go right to reinstalling W10 for free as follows...

     

    You can make a W10 USB flash drive installer using an 8 GB flash drive using another Windows PC, if your PC is not working.

     

    If you are asked to enter a product key during the installation process, select the 'I don't have a product key' option, and W10 will install and automatically activate once you are connected to the internet.

     

    Here are the steps to create the W10 USB flash drive installer...

     

    1. Select Download tool now, and select Run.
    2. If you agree to the license terms, select Accept.
    3. On the What do you want to do? page, select Create installation media for another PC, and then select Next.
    4. Select the language, edition, and architecture (64-bit or 32-bit) for Windows 10. You want 64 bit.

    5. Select which media you want to use:
    6. USB flash drive.  Plug in a blank USB flash drive with at least 8GB of space. Any content on the flash drive will be deleted.

    You can also save the W10 ISO file instead of making the bootable USB flash drive installer, and burn it to a DVD using the tool I zipped up and attached below if you would rather use a DVD to reinstall W10.

     

    Then you can reinstall the drivers and available software from the PC's support page.

    Hi,

     

    Read Huffer's tutorial on how to get the most use of the limited space your notebook comes with...

    Thanks for the reply.

     

    When you go through the F11 process of recovery, you will get an option to save your files.

     

    You may give it a try. 

     

    Let me know. :)
