Hi there,

This is my first post and hope I'm posting the proper place...
My computer is starting to run slow and is full of crap and I need to do a system recovery but I do not have the disc as it never came with one.
I have done it a few times with no disc on my old laptop but I think that was windows vista.
I have an Advent Modena Intel Celeron T3100 running on windows 7 Home Premium and I get so far and it says to have the disc ready...

If anyone knows how to do it can you please let me know...
Thank you in advance!!!
James :thumbsup:

Hi and welcome,

I have never heard of Advent Modena before as a PC manufacturer... however if you don't have the recovery discs you should be able to contact their support and have them send you one. Usually companies like HP and Dell etc... will charge you a small fee to cover the cost of the physical disc + shipping (i.e. about $15 or so).

Try this and let me know how it goes.

Also I edited your post to remove the wonky fonts, they make it harder to read.

Cheers

hi, check you computer if the manufacturer of your unit has pre-installed the recovery options, the menu might also be installed on your hard disk as a recovery partition. Try restarting then press F8 in Advance Boot Option the Repair your computer will appear in the menu that's your chance you can run system recovery without the installation disk if not seeing that option it means that you computer manufacturer did not include include preinstalled recovery options.

There may be a Recovery partition on the hard drive that you can access via a Fn key at boot time. Which Fn key varies with manufacturer unfortunately. F10 and F11 are often used.

I could not find anything on the internet about your computer. I was hoping to find a Users Manual as there would be a section in there on how to do a system recovery.
