HP Compaq Business Notebook nc6000 Series - System Recovery Overview

Introduction

The notebook system recovery process provides several ways to recover system functionality. The Driver Recovery and Operating System CDs enable recovery or repair of the notebook without loss of personal data. The Operating System CD also allows reinstallation of the operating system software provided with the notebook.

Safeguarding data

Software or devices added to the notebook can cause the system to become unstable. To safeguard documents, store personal files in the My Documents folder and periodically create a backup copy of My Documents.

Setting system restore points

Notebooks with Windows XP operating systems provide the option of setting system restore points (benchmarks) daily as personal settings are changed. The notebook may also set restore points when new software or devices are added.
Set system restore points periodically when the notebook is functioning at optimal performance and before installing new software or devices. This enables the return to a previous configuration restore point if problems are encountered.
Follow these steps to set a system restore point:
  1. Click Start, then Help and Support.
  2. Select the Use Tools to view your computer information and diagnose problems task.
  3. Click System Restore. A System Restore window opens.
  4. Follow the onscreen directions for setting a restore point.
Follow these steps to restore the notebook to a previous date and time when it was functioning optimally:
  1. Click Start, Help and Support, and Tools.
  2. Click System Restore.
  3. Follow the onscreen directions for restoring the notebook.
