HP Logo - Ongoing IssuesHP have confirmed that they will be releasing a webOS tablet in 2011. There have not been any details about the tablet as yet.

HP PalmPad to have Stylus Support?

HP Pavillion DV9000 – Create recovery DVD’s

The Hard Drive on a HP Pavillion DV9000 series laptop is on the way out. Now I know that there is a recovery partition and no recovery discs came with the laptop, so I thought there must be a Recovery CD creator somewhere.

I hit the web, and after being told that I should be looking under the Hewlett Packard folder or:

“Start, All Programs, and then click PC Help and Tools. Click the Recovery Manager”, I found these places, and nor did the software exist.

I had another look through the laptop Programs menu and came across Recover Manager > Recovery Disc Creation

So there it is. If you want to create recovery discs for your HP Pavillion DV9000 laptop then just look there.
