Recovery drive corrupted Windows 7 64-bit RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,
    My laptop came with recovery drive of Windows 7 64-bit. I once re-installed windows from that recovery drive. Some time ago I installed some software after that "Windows not genuine" message start appearing. Then I tried to re-install Windows from Recovery Drive. But I come to know that my Recovery Manager is not working (Pressing F-8 while starting system, and directly starting Recovery Manager from Programs)  I have consulted some technical people they says that your recovery drive is corrupted. What should I do now.
    Thanks!

    Don't turn on your computer anymore.

    Take your computer to a professional who can possibly recover whatever data may be recoverable on your hard drive. Tell the professional the software you downloaded that started causing the problem regarding the "Windows not genuine" message appearing so the professional removes that software from the recovery if they can.

    The professional will be able to diagnose what the issue with the harddrive or your computer is. Possibly the hard drive is failed and no data can be recovered from it. Possibly something on the laptops motherboard is bad so the hard drive can not be accessed.

    The laptop may need a new hard drive. Which may require the professional to install Windows 64 bit OS on the new harddrive.

    Plan to spend money.

    May be cheaper to buy new laptop and throw old laptop away.

    Don't install that software on your laptop again.


    La vida loca
