Hi

I have a hp pavilion laptop. When I turn it on the only thing that happens is a black screen that says BOOTMGR COMPRESSED CTRL ALT DEL to restart. I do not have the original disks that came with the laptop. Please help!!!

Thank You

I believe I did. I thought it would help & it didn't. My laptop runs very slow all the time. Somehow there are too many files & folders that need deleted.

Thank You

You must have the Win 7 disk to fix the problem.

insert your Windows 7 OS DVD
go to DOS window and type in your OS drive (usualy C:\)
type in bootrec /FixMbr
then type in bootrec /fixboot
then type in bootrec /rebuildbcd
then type in exit
restart your computer
it will work 100% only if you prompt at the same order

You can NOT compress the C drive in a Windows computer.
You might need to pay a repair shop to fix this if you don't have the Windows DVD

good luck
