Asus Zenbook Recovery Partition Backup


My son wants to buy this machine. Can someone tell me if we would be able to manually create a backup iso from the recovery partition in case something turns to custard? Or any os backup(reinstall) solution for that matter.

Delete Old Recovery Partition

On my toshiba laptop there is a pre-installed recovery file on a separate partition to the vista:c one[which is now 7 since i upgraded]it is on a partition called data:e. Also on this partition is a file called ro8500 en. Tag which windows won't open. Both these were there when i bought the laptop 2 years ago. They take up 4 gbs on an 11 gb partition. Can i delete this partition safely now i don't need the recovery file for vista anymore? I want to extend the c partition into the space that would be created.

Clean Install - Do I Delete Recovery Partition?

I own a dell inspiron 530 desktop with vista home basic. I was just informed that i could not upgrade from vista home basic to windows 7 home premium. So i purchased a full version of windows 7 so that i could do a clean install. My computer currently has two partitions on it. One of which is a 14. 6 gb recovery partition, while the other is a 218gb partition labeled os: when i do a clean install do i delete both the recovery partition and the os partition and install windows 7 on one large partition?

Backup And Recovery, Moving Backups

When i set up the automatic backup, i directed it to use the space i had available on a hard drive. Within a few days, it began to give me "low backup space" messages.
 
I have since bought an external hard drive and have redirected backup and restore to store backups there. I am still getting frequent "low backup space" messages for the first drive i used.
 
1. How can i convince the system that it needs no more space on the first drive because i will not be storing any more backups there and to stop telling me about the "low backup space"?
 
2. Can i move the backups from the first drive to the second drive so that all of my backups are in one space and the space on the old drive is freed for other purposes?

Backup And Restore - Win 7 Will Not Load Recovery From Disc

So yesterday i was on the computer and it just quit. Shut down and restarted without warning and flashed a blue screen with a sunshine ray type screen. Then i got a windows error recovery and i choose to start windows normally as this has never happened to me. When i choose that i got a blue screen that a problem was detected quoted stop: 0x0000007e. I managed to get into the advanced boot options but no option would work. It would only just recycle a restart. Then i would get the error in windows boot manager about 0xc0000428. Windows cannot verify the digital signature for this file. I have put in a recovery disc that was made and a genuine windows 7 disc and i get the option to boot from disc but it just takes me to the digital signature error.

I have pulled the hard drive out and put into an external case and hooked up to my laptop. Everything is still on my hard drive. I have ran the smart tests in the bios menu and they all passed. I have taken out the ram and put it back in. I do not get any beep codes or anything. I read on here to try the windows defender offline disc. I burned a disc off my laptop which is just a few weeks old and clean of malware and viruses. When i put disc in all i got was a the blue symbol (4 squares in a square) and it just sits and goes no where. Thinking there might be something wrong with the dvd drive itself i tried an external usb dvd with same results. I even made a copy on a flash drive with the same results except shortly after loading i now get an all blue screen that says recovery your pc needs to be repaired. An unexpected error has occured. Error code 0xc0000229 and so on with the f8 for startup settings or enter to try again. Well nothing happens when i choose f8 or press enter. I have to restart the system with a hard reboot to get anything to happen again.

I have also went into the bios and reloaded defaults. Not sure what else to do. I am not 100% tech savvy but i would say i have about 75% knowledge on the systems. Any help and guidance would be much appreciated. I have searched out the problem but cannot find anything else that repeats my problem. A lot of people are able to load from a disc but i cannot. Hp pavillion p6000 series, windows 7 home premium 64 bit.

Win 7 Virtual Xp Backup By Microsoft Backup & Restore

Windows 7 virtual xp backup by microsoft backup & restore - does it backup "both" c drives? I am running microsoft windows 7 professional with virtual windows xp. If i use microsoft backup & restore (and let it backup per its recommended selection), will it backup all my files on my "regular" windows c: drive as well as the virtual c: drive of xp?

Backup Failed, Backup Drive No Longer Detected

Windows 7 kept bugging me about creating a backup, so i finally decided to. I chose to backup the default items onto my d: drive. I let it run, left for a bit and came back. It failed at 70ish%. Tried again. Same thing. I didn't have a whole lot of time left so i decided to just forget it.

I deleted the incomplete backup files on my d: drive (there was a c: backup file and mediaid. Bin) since there seemed to be no use for incomplete backup files.

When i got home and turned on my computer, post took longer than usual. My sata 2 drive was undetected. Sata 2 = my d drive. When windows starts to boot, it freezes when the windows animation is doing it's thing. I tried repairing and restoring from previously known good configuration and still nothing. I used my win7 disk to check for problems, and i even used that to restore to a point prior to my failed backups.

What else could i try? Why would my d: drive suddenly be undetected in bios, and why would a failed backup cause my windows installation to freeze? Edit: i unplugged the data cable from my d: drive and now windows boots. So deleting backup files royally screwed up my d: drive?

Dell Datasafe Local Backup Vs Windows Backup

I recently purchased a dell desktop with windows 7. One of the first things i did was configure all of my back-upsettings / schedule in windows. I used the recommended windows default settings in regards to what data is being backed up and set my back-up location to an attached external wd drive. All seems to be working fine. That said this machine also has dell factory installed back up software (dell datasafe local back-up) that does it's thing and backs up data to a partition on the "c" drive. My question is if i've set up windows to back up my data to an external drive do i even need the dell datasafe local back up program at all? The concern is this program is using space on my c drive and if the c drive were to crash having the back up info on it seems kind of pointless to me anyway.

Asus G51v Driver Problems

I have an asus g51v (purchased at best buy, which originally came with vista, but i upgraded to win 7), none of it's drivers install. The usb drives, ethernet, wireless, and audio don't work at all. I have no solution so far. It appears to be a problem w/ the registry, i think somebody messed with that.

What i have tried:
-System restore (doesn't fix)
-Uninstalling, then re-installing via device manager
-Windows repair (doesn't work since there isn't internet)

Any ideas as to how to fix this?

External Monitor On Asus Eee Pc 1005ha-m

I just bought an asus eee pc. It has windows 7, intel atom n270; 2gb ram and intel 945 express family graphic card. I plugged my external monitor (packard bell 190 w ab) in it through vga port. It works fine, but the screen resolution is not optimal! The best resolution would be 1336 x 768 60hz; which is the maximum. But windows only gives the option to choose between 800 x 600 and 1024 x 600 !?

I tried updating the driver for the graphic card, since the intel website learns me that there is a newer version of the driver. (Driver now installed is: 8. 15. 10. 1867) but this didn't really work. I tried updating the driver, selected the folder where i downloaded the file from the intel website and windows says that there is no better or newer driver available. Then i searched for a packard bell driver, but didn't find one on their website. Any suggestions on how to fix the problem?

Asus P5vd2-mx Motherboard Audio Device Driver

Audio device driver required - windows 7 64-bit - asus p5vd2-mx motherboard - cpu: socket 775 - audio device "unknown". Ok, as the title says, i need the correct windows 7 64-bit driver (fyi. Asus do not have any win7 drivers for my board except for bios flashers)
 
Previous: new computer (to me its new, it was my brothers) worked fine for him but came with all drivers pre-installed (he also used win7 64-bit)
 
I formatted the drive and re-installed win7 64-bit. It showed the device as working including in the device manager, however, no matter what i did i got no sound. I tried to find drivers online and found one saying it was the win7 64-bit driver, it installed fine but had to reboot to finish the install, o nreboot it gave an error as i logged back in (cant remember what it was now) and now there is no device showing up at all anywhere not even in device manager and not even showing "unknown device"
 
I have been to asus website and tried the win vista 64-bit audio driver for my motherboard and it says it is not compatible.

Note: i have been through the entire faq on the asus website and they have no useful information what so ever, as with the forums.

Note: have also checked in playback devices panel and shown disabled hardware. Still nothing
I have tried using sis software "sandra-lite" and it cannot detect any audio devices
 
If this is a bios version problem and i have to flash it, please let me know and if possible provide a link to the correct flasher. Ive not flashed a bios since 1998.

Asus En 9800 Gtx Graphics Card Trouble

I performed a clean install of windows 7 on my pc and now i have some major graphic performance issues. At first sight the graphics seem ok, but they are very very slow. Resizing windows, scrolling on webpages, or starting up a game all looks like i have a 1mb vga card. Even a 2d game runs on less than 1 fps. I have tried various drivers for my graphics card, even physically swapped it for an old 6800gt (same thing, but then again also the same drivers).

There is no abnormal cpu or memory usage and other than the graphics the system runs fine. The very same system worked perfect on xp and vista.system details:windows 7 pro 64 bit, directx 11. Sus striker ii formula mbintel core2 duo e8400, currently unlocked at 3. 00 ghz asus en9800 gtx graphics card 4 x 2gb ocz memory - 4gb dual channel did anyone experience this, and maybe have a solution to it?

Update Audio Driver For Asus Motherboard P5ld2-fm

My computer has an asus motherboard (p5ld2-fm) with an onboard audio chip (from realtec). After installing windows 7, i have no more audio: on my screen right under i see a speaker with a red cross. By hovering over this symbol, it says "no audio output device is installed". I suppose that asus has no suitable driver for my motherboard. Not a big problem as it is my spare computer, but my question is: as soon as the right drivers are available, will they com automatically with the updates from windows 7, or must i look on a regular base on the asus website for those drivers?

Sound Not Working With Asus A8r-mvp Motherboard

I just upgraded from xp to win7 64bit. Running off an asus a8r-mvp motherboard. The installation disc that came with the board will not run. Assume it is incompatible with win7? Drivers read as up to date, with a microsoft "high definition audio device" listed as my only sound device and shows as up to date and working properly. Have tried all built in troubleshooting and still no sound. Speakers are hooked up and working, so it seems like a driver error.

Installing Windows 7 On Asus Eee Pc 900a Netbook

I am pretty technical when it comes to windows and i was able to install win 7 on multiple computers from a flashdrive by using diskpart. The real problem that i have now is that i am trying to install windows 7 on a netbook. To be more specific it is an asus eee pc 900a which has a limited ssd drive of 4gb (actual formatted space of course is 3. 8gb) it came factory with a linux distro but windows is far more superior so it will do what i want. Trying to install it straight on gives an error from the install that there is not enough space. How can i make it fit?

Chicony Driver For Asus G50v Built-in Webcam

I have an issue with my webcam for my laptop. I have an asus g50v which came with windows vista. I bought this laptop a couple years ago, right when it came out. It worked great with vista, webcam and all, not one problem. I upgraded to windows 7 a few months ago, and my webcam image is now displaying upside down. When ever i go into anything that allows me to use a webcam in chat, or to take pictures, it is always upside down. Anyone know why this is happening and how to fix it? Thanks

Asus Usb-n13 Network Adapter Problem

I'm running windows 7 32bit with a msi ms-7698 motherboard. I'm trying to install the drivers for an asus usb-n13 network adapter. I have no cd drive so i've downloaded the drivers from the asus site. When i run the setup file for the driver it says it can only be ran on windows 7 (which is what i'm using). I've also tried using device manager to manually select the driver and install but that doesn't work either. I've also installed the "asus wlan control center" thinking there would be an option to install drivers through that. But when i try to run it it says that it will run once the network adapter is plugged in, which it is. Under "devices and printers" it shows my adapter as "unspecified" so my pc is recognizing that it is plugged in.

Asus P5ad2-e Audio Device Driver Not Properly Installed

I did a clean install of windows 7 on 2 identical computers with the asus p5ad2-e motherboard. Both have the same problem: a message "no audio output device is installed". Letting windows try to solve the problem then results in an attempt to reinstall the device driver, which fails with the message "high definition audio device has a driver problem". Nothing i tried so far (uninstalling the driver, manually installing a realtek driver for windows 7) has worked.

Asus G73 Drive Does Not Recognize Blu Ray Disc

Recently got a new laptop - asus g73 with blu ray/windows 7 64 bit pro/comes with powerdvd 9
When i put a dvd in the drive, everything works fine.

When i put a blu ray disc in the drive - windows does not recognize that there is a disc in the drive (i.e. No auto-play, no disc recognized in windows explorer). Also, the powerdvd9 software also does not recognize there is a disc inserted. When i first opened the powerdvd program, it asked me to setup the correct region codes, and i've also setup the correct country in windows. The model of my blu ray drive is "matshita bd-cmb uj141as".

Asus Drw 22b2s Cd/dvd Drive Driver Error

When installing windows 7, i have finally managed to get past the installation screen without it blue screening (that, however, is a whole different story) and now it stops before the installation begins, complaining that the cd driver can not be found. It then proceeds to look for the driver (on the cd drive, no less, proving to me that it must be working decently enough) and finds nothing. Browsing for more folders reveals nothing.

System info: i'm installing the 32-bit version from from a dvd onto an old machine with an 80gb hard drive and sufficient ram. The only dvd drive is an asus drw 22b2s cd/dvd drive, for which there are no drivers available online, nor did it need any to run on windows 2000 which was the previous os on the machine (however i've wiped the hard drive for the installation). The copy of windows 7 is a legit version, but still won't install. I've been browsing through other topics here and on different sites and none of their solutions work. Is there a way to get around this - or better yet, a solution?

Xp Partition Drives

I had an old hp computer with windows xp. The drive was portioned into two by the manufacturer. I recently changed the hard drive, motherboard and the processor. Then i loaded a windows 7 oem. I forgot to copy the user files from my old hard drive before doing the above. I used an ide>usb adapter to read the files from my old hard drive but the windows 7 is only showing the system files but not the user files. How can i see and copy my old user files onto the new hard drive.
