HP 530 won't see hard drive

Are you sure there is no usb / CD in the computer?

Try pressing F8 when the computer boots and select the HDD as the boot device.

If this works, you'll need to reset the boot order in the CMOS / BIOS.

"Error loading operating system"

This issue is caused by any of the below reasons.

The computer's BIOS does not support the computer hard disk drive's size or settings.
Computer Hard disk drive is not properly setup in CMOS.
Issue with drive's partitions.

Verify that the computer's hard disk drive is properly setup in CMOS setup.
Once in CMOS, verify the below hard disk drive settings.
Verify the hard disk drive is detected.
Try changing the "Access mode" on the hard disk drive to Large or LBA. This setting may vary depending on the BIOS.
Use a system utility tool like ReginOut to avoid such type of errors in future.

Laptop wont start

This issue is often caused by either an incorrect setting in CMOS Setup or a bad boot device, such as a bad hard disk drive.

  1. Verify your boot options are properly set in CMOS setup. I recommend having the CD or disc drive as your first boot device and then hard drive as the second boot device.
  2. If your CMOS Setup has an option to boot from the LAN disable this option.
  3. If you have changed any CMOS settings, make sure to save and reboot the computer.

If this does not resolve the issue, try resetting the CMOS values to the default settings, save and exit.
If this fixes the problem but it reoccurs again later you main need a new cmos battery. Or keep your battery always slightly charged.

When i boot the computer it says verifing dmi pool

Hello there and welcome to fixya
A. DMI or DesktopManagement Interface (pdf) is a layer of abstraction between system components and the software that manages them. The System Management BIOS (SMBIOS) is an extension of the Basic Input Output System (BIOS) that formulates and delivers this information to the operating system. The pool data is the information. In short, when the BIOS is "Verifying DMI pool data" it is verifying the table of data it sends to the operating system (Windows, etc.). If it isn't sucessful, it should return an error. Wait a reasonable period of time for it to finish. It may make take some time or it may be stuck. Possible fixes:
1. If you changed the hardware just before this problem occurred (e.g., installed a new hard disk drive), unchange it.
2. If you installed a new hard disk drive, set the motherboard CMOS Setup to Auto for the drive type. You may have to disconnect the drive first.
3. Enable "Reset Configuration Data" (may be "Force Update ESCD" in some CMOS Setuups) in the motherboard CMOS Setup PNP/PCI configuration. (Rebooting will automatically disabled it after it has done its thing.)

After replacing on board lithium cell, computer will not boot up. Goes through BIOS ok but no further, even tried replacing hard disk and booting from removable media drives (after setting BIOS...

Did you swap the Cmos jumpers from 1-2 to 2-3 to clear Cmos before replacing battery and if so, did you return them to their original position (normal as opposed to clear cmos)? If the jumper is still in the clear Cmos position, the board will not boot.

Try changing the Cmos battery, it may appear to work but may not be suited to the board

Disconnect all drives except the hard drive, unplug usb and sound cables, if fitted, remove graphics card and either test with another one or use the onboard graphics.

Reset bios jumper motherboards for HP G60-519WM Notebook PC

If this is really an HP G60, the fix is really not that difficult.

Shut the system down, remove the main battery and the AC power cable from the laptop.

Remove the Hard Disk Drive cover from the bottom of the laptop (2 screws).

Next to the Hard disk you will see the CMOS battery --- it is about the size of a penny and covered in dark tape. Two wires lead from this CMOS battery to a plug about 1.5 inches away. Disconnect this plug, wait 5 minutes, and put everything back the way it was.

Restart the system ---all CMOS settings and BIOS passphrases will have been reset.

Hard disk problem(locked by a password)

Hi Someone has set the hard disk password in the BIOS. This stops the hard disk from being accessed until the password is sent to it. The hard disk itself is now locked - you cannot put it in another system - it will just not work until it receives the correct password. I am sorry but unless you know the password there is no way to access the data on the hard disk. You would have to send it to a data recovery firm or possibly return it to the disk manufacturer but contact them first as they will probably destroy all the data on the hard disk. Sorry - but you will have to buy  new hard disk and reset the CMOS before you fit the new one and remove all BIOS passwords.

Checksum error

Hi Oliver, the most common error related to the message,
(Bios Rom Checksum Error). Someone has left a floppy disk in the floppy drive. Once the floppy disk has been removed press the reset button on the PC, your windows will start normally. Next place to look is in your bios.
Open your manual to page 27.
Enter your bios & go to the title Advanced BIOS Features. Check First, Second & Third boot devices they should be as follows. Floppy disk drive, CD-ROM drive & primary hard disk drive. If both of the above are ok than try clearing the cmos/bios by resetting the cmos jumper (JP1) location on page 5. Descriptions of page five on page 6. CMOS settings on page 9.
When your system restarts re-enter your cmos & reset up your bios settings. Lastly if none of the above has fixed the error message, than remove the cmos battery & check its voltage. It should maintain 3volts. If yours' is lower than 3volts replace the cmos battery. There is one other possible fix. It’s an option not given lightly. Flashing a cmos/bios is not recommended unless all other options have failed.

I have a HP 8595c computer. I put a DVD in and it froze. I restarted the computer and now it won't boot up proberly. I get this message. "Non-System disk or disk error Replace and strike any key...

Non-System Disk or Disk Error results when the Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) cannot find the boot sector or the master boot record is missing or damaged; i.e. the device does not have bootable media. The BIOS searches drives in the order usually specified in the CMOS Setup. This order is often, but not always, A: (floppy drive), C: (first partition on the hard disk)… The error will occur during startup if the CMOS is set so the BIOS seeks the floppy drive first and a non-bootable (or blank) floppy is in (was left in) the floppy drive. Other causes include:

No bootable partition on a hard disk drive
  • A defective hard disk drive
  • The CMOS drive settings (parameters) are not correct for the boot device
  • Defective floppy
  • Defective floppy drive
  • A virus

    Having problem installing Windows XP on My Acer Aspire T650 Computer

    Before you did the install did you make sure that you set your CMOS setting to check for a cd disk first before booting straight to the hard drive? When you do an install, you must make sure that the computer knows to look for a bootable disk otherwise it will look for an operating system to boot to first. If this is the problem, after you have installed your operating system you must go back and reset your CMOS settings to look for a hard drive or operating system. Hope this help and if it doesn't let me know for further assistance.
