Check to see if the hardrive and dvd rom are both set as master on the back, if they are on the same ide ribbon and set as master none will show up in your bios

    do any show up in the bios?

  • mark hudson Sep 18, 2008

    can you check to see if you have the ide lead pluged in right aswell, sounds daft but happens. theres a red line that runs down 1 side of the lead, that should be next to the power connection

  • mark hudson Sep 18, 2008

    even if you have side and pide as ide + ide 2 you should get something on your screen, you dont need any drives plugged in to get to the bios, try unplugging them to see if you get something on the screen

  • mark hudson Sep 18, 2008

    on your motherboard is there 2 power conections? some have the 20 pin and a 4 pin connection aswell

  • mark hudson Sep 18, 2008

    are both power connections plugged in, this is looking more like a dead motherboard at the moment, check your moniter lead

  • mark hudson Sep 18, 2008

    its looking like the motherboard, as long as theres ram + cpu in the mother board you will always be able to get something on your screen, is there anyway you can check your ram or cpu in another machine, pain in the *** i know but will eliminate them. take me back to when i used to test parts lol

  • mark hudson Sep 18, 2008

    np, do you have another motherboard to test to save you buying a new one, if not youll just have to buy one :(

When booting the laptop it says PXE-E61: media


When you start your computer, the motherboard searches connected drives for the operating system. The search order is usually the optical (CD/DVD) drive first, possibly a USB drive next, then the hard drive. If none of these work, some systems are set to try booting the operating system over a network cable. What the cryptic message you're getting is telling you is that the system tried a network boot without success, and that maybe the trouble is a bad cable.

This all means that your hard drive isn't being detected, or that there's no longer an operating system on it. It's possible the connector from the hard drive to the motherboard has come loose, which can sometimes happen since laptops get moved around. The hard drive may have gone bad, or there may be a problem with the motherboard that is causing it not to find the hard drive. Or the hardware may all be fine, but something (a virus or other malware, for instance) has deleted files needed to load Windows.

When the computer first starts, you'll see a message about how to enter BIOS setup. The BIOS is the motherboard's built-in program, and through the setup pages you can see what devices it detects. This will let you know if the hard drive is being found. Some boards include diagnostic tests you can run on the hard drive if problems are found. You can also check the boot order; you may find that for some reason the boot order has been changed so that the network boot is being tried first. Strange things can happen to BIOS settings, often a sign that the backup battery for the memory where the settings are stored is getting weak.

If you have access to a Windows XP operating system CD, you can set the BIOS to boot from the CD drive and try using the Recovery Console feature. Information about this can be found at Microsoft's site.

Good luck getting your laptop back up and running quickly. Thanks for using Fixya!

I have a foxconn n15235 I get a blue screen F10 setup,esc Boot,F11 exc. Nothing happens How do I access the cmos. took battery out.


During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS the scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd,press escape then press f10 to save to

cmos to restart (this is only a guide on how to enter BIOS)

it sounds like you have a faulty lead

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your motherboard to your hard drive make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty


hope this helps

MY LAPTOP IS DOING NOTHING BECAUSE MY C DRIVE IS FULL AND IT WONT LET ME DELETE ANYTHING.. IVE TRIED THE DISC CLEAN UP BUT I DONT GET ANY FREE SPACE, IVE BOUGHT AN EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE AND MY LAPTOP DOESNT...


If you don't care about your data and don't need to back anything up, you can reinstall windows straight from the disc you have. If you do care about your data, you'll have to hook up another drive. Unfortunately, it seems like your problems are beyond the point of just hooking up a drive and copying files.

I'll give you two parts. First, how to reinstall windows. Second, how to copy files. Once again, if you care about your data you should skip down to the second part now.

1. Put your windows cd into your drive and reboot. Your screen should pop up with a message that says "Press any key to boot to cd." If it does not, reboot again, and this time go to your Setup screen. This is usually done by pressing the "F2" key or "DEL" key initially upon booting. Once you are in your setup screen, you need to change the Boot order to go to CD before it goes to Hard Disk.

Once you've booted up to your cd, you will be run through a windows installer that will let you partition and reformat your computer to do a new installation of windows.

2. The best way to copy your files when your hard disk fails or you can't recognize drives is to run a live version of linux. Ubuntu is what I use. Don't be scared now! Linux is very user-friendly, graphical, and easy to navigate these days. You don't need to know any code to run it or use it. You will need to download Ubuntu Linux on another machine and burn the CD, as I assume your computer won't handle downloading and burning a cd image. Once you have your Ubuntu CD, all you do is reboot with it in your drive and choose to Try the live version of Ubuntu. This will not take up any hard drive space and it won't overwrite your files. Ubuntu will simply be running in your memory space and allow you to access your computer and external drive so you can backup your files.

Good luck!

I con not setup win xp on the hard without floppy disk


Start your computer. Enter BIOS SETUP. Select "Boot Order". Configure to make the CD/DVD the *FIRST* boot-device. Put the Windows CD/DVD into the drive. Save/Exit from BIOS SETUP. Your computer will restart, and will "boot" from the Windows disk in CD/DVD drive.

Acer Aspire 5050 won't boot at all


Yes, it's not the hard drive.

More than likely it's your motherboard.

There's not much you can do besides trying to boot the computer without the battery, and removing and reinstalling the memory.

Hopefully you'll get lucky!

My system doesnt boot from the PATA drive


Sort of obvious (judging by the stuff you tried) but, Did you try going into the BIOS setup and making sure the hard disk is the first boot device? (if its lower than something else, say a windows hard disk, it'll load windows instead, etc.) If not something is wrong with your linux boot file, and the BIOS can't read/understand it, try reloading linux onto the hard disk.

Laptop won't turn on


keep pressing f12 when the computer first starts up this should show a list of boot devices, choose the hard drive. if the boot menu doesnt show up youll need to go into your bios setup and make sure the hard drive is the first boot device. if it still wont boot then you likely have a faulty hard drive or connector. Im guessing you dont have a backup of your assignment? You may need to take out the hard drive and have someone who knows what they are doing plug it into a desktop computer to retrieve your documents off it.

Re: lg tower xp install


Hi,
FDD Floppy-Disk Drive.
It would be advisable to go to the motherboard Manufacturers site. And download the setup or user manual for this Board.
The White or black plastic jumper blocks i,ve refered to, are on the back of the Actual CD/DVD Rom Drive. Located at 1 end. this should be set to Master or Slave. diagram of settings usually printed on top of the drive. I dont know whether you have an IDE Drive ( 40-80 strand ) wire connecter.
Or sata drive connectors. 1 single red cable from motherboard to drive.
please bear in mind, this site is designated to solve technical solutions.
i,ll help all i can, but if your not technical minded, perhaps this is a job for someone more competant than yourself. no disrepect intended.

Re: lg tower xp install


Hi,
the boot device setup in the bios, if you set atapi-cd rom as first boot device. then hdd second. and fdd last.
it appears that you have a faulty connection from the IDE ( 40-80 wire cable ) that runs from the motherboard Primary/secondary slot. check the cable goes from motherboard to hard-drive and is connected firmly, also check the jumper blocks ( small white plastic block ) is set to master or slave on both devices ( cd-hard-drive ) if both on same cable set hard-drive to slave and CD rom to master. if they are both set as master or slave, they will conflict with each other.
if you need further help, please mail back.
