Hello, I have a Packard Bell branded laptop displaying the error there is no boot disk see details and the photos in first comment to know what happens and did someone can help me with it?!


If you set the boot order to USB first boot device and HD second. Insert USB and boot from there. It should find your HD and then you can install your OS. Another system for a different laptop will not work!

How to Format A Memory Card Using A Computer


If you are having problems where your camera or other device will not format or recognise your memory card, this is often because the card has become corrupted or the device is an older type and does not recognise the file system of the card.

You should always format your card with your camera or device (not your computer) every time you need to do this. This prevents the possibility of data errors and corruption.

However, if your device is refusing to format or will not recognise the card you can often resolve this by getting your computer to format it for you.

This often helps the camera or device recognise the card and make it functional again. If a format on your PC fails and the card is still not recognised then the card is either faulty or in the case of a camera exceeds your cameras max capability. In this case you will have to use a new card or one with a lower memory capacity.

If you have a card reader on your PC this is the easiest way to access the card with the computer. If not, a multi card reader is a cheap and useful device to have.

Be aware that formatting the card erases all information and or photos stored on it.

To format the card with your PC do the following:

1) Insert the card into the card reader.

2) Go to 'Start' - 'My Computer' and then find the card icon which will show as 'SD Card Drive' or 'Compact Flash Drive' or whatever card type you are using.

3) Right click on the relevant card icon. you will be presented with a list of options. Go down to Format and select this option.Now select a File system type.

PLEASE NOTE: Select FAT32 for 4GB or higher capacities. FAT for 2GB or lower capacities

4) Click start to begin the format process.

5) When the process is complete, take the memory card out and insert it into your device. If the procedure was successful the device should recognise it and it should work.

Note: Old cameras
Many previous old cameras and portable devices do not work if the card is formatted as FAT32 or NTFS file system. One of the following errors may occur if your device does not support FAT32 or NTFS:
- Error message asking to re-format the flash card.
- Error message that the flash card is not formatted.

To resolve the above error, backup your data and reformat your memory card in FAT file system

Showing cannot format complete


you have to format your hard drive using a third party disc to erase everything on your hard drive
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 to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos restart
note this will erase you operating system you will have to have an operating system disk to load it onto you hard drive or create a partition to load another operating system
note after you have loaded the operating system you must go back and change the first boot device to your hard drive
The BIOS is AMI. Under ADVANCED SETUP:
The options listed for 1st,2nd ,3rd Boot device include:
IDE0 means Pri master
IDE1 means Pri slave
IDE2 means Sec master
IDE3 means Sec slave

or if you are using a USB
insert your usb drive
click start right click on my computer select open you should see your USB drive
right click then select format
another way is to control panel administrive tools,computer management disk management right click on your drive select format
hope this helps

This error code means that Windows cannot access the boot device. This is caused by an error in the formatting, or operating system files on your boot drive.
you may need to re install windows in the current partition, or re-format your HDD then do a complete re installation of your OS. If you need help with that, feel free to ask me. :)

My hard drive keeps failing to boot into windows xp after formatting severally. Even after formatting sucessfully,it gets bad again and refuses to boot.Please what do i do?


hello,

the thing is your hard drive has damade to it sectors and MBR.

there is software you can use to try and fix it.
The operating system can not fix it either.

you can how ever still use the hard drive, you can use it as a secondary storage device.

you can make it slave on the jumper settings, link it ot another hard drive and get your data off, but not if have formatted the disk anyway.

CD drive refuses to open or run even when I press the button


Select a cd rom device,then add another boot up disc,then see if it opens.Will it take a cd rom better than a floppy? If so use the boot up disc,rather than an older and possibley more damaging floppy.
