I have an ASUS notebook and it came with Windows 7 Starter. I've been having a lot of trouble with it and I wanted to start over. I tried pressing F9 but there are no options to. I also can't find the recovery partitions. There isn't the choice in control panel either.Please help, I have a lot of important things to do and my notebook is just messed up! Please help ASAP :help:

Thanks :happy:

There is no "Recover Windows to Entire HD" option. I've tried everything and nothing works

Are you continually tapping F9 immediately on boot up rather than use a single press as you must use the former?

Read this link too.

Have you verified in computer management that you have a recovery partition?

Also note that restoring to factory defaults will erase all data.

Go to Start then to Run
Type in compmgmt.msc and click Enter
On left side click on Disk Management
On right side you will see you hard drive.
Male sure the window is open all the way on the top right so I can see all the info it has.
Now I need you to take a screenshot and attach it to your next reply. Do the following to take a screenshot while the above is open and showing on your desktop.

To do a screenshot please have click on your Print Screen on your keyboard. It is normally the key above your number pad between the F12 key and the Scroll Lock key
Now go to Start and then to All Programs
Scroll to Accessories and then click on Paint
In the Empty White Area click and hold the CTRL key and then click the V
Go to the File option at the top and click on Save as
Save as file type JPEG and save it to your Desktop
Make sure the window is open all the way so I can see everything on the top right window.


Attach it to your next reply

Are you still having problems with your issue?
It has been 18 days since your last response and I was wondering if the issue has been resolved?
If so can you explain how it was resolved so others may be able to fix it if they have the same issue.
If not please let us know and we can continue with helping you to resolve the issue.
