How can I a boot disk system failure on my Asus without a system disc?


First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

Can not boot up computer


possible your hard drive

A hard disk failure can be catastrophic if it jeopardizes the data stored on your computer.


In addition to rendering a laptop inoperable, a failed hard disk can damage other files stored on the drive as well.


It is critical to determine whether an actual drive failure has taken place, and there are several steps to troubleshoot a drive before hard disk failure can be declared.



Unplug any devices such as printers, speakers, cameras and other external peripherals. Boot the laptop by pressing the power key.


If this does not result in a successful boot, try booting Windows in "Safe Mode."

Reboot the computer, and hold down the F8 key this will vary depending on your computer and operating system


From the menu choices, choose "Boot Windows in Safe Mode".


If the boot up progresses, then the computer is likely experiencing a software issue, not a hard drive failure.


Reset the hard drive.


This will involve turning off laptop (removing the battery is a good move, too) opening the laptop unit, and unplugging all connections and cables from the hard drive.


If possible, replace the hard drive with another drive.

This will help determine if the hard drive is causing the problem.


Plug all connections back in to the hard drive, and reboot the computer.

Repeat Step 2 if necessary.


If the computer does not reboot, the laptop is more than likely experiencing a hard drive failure and will probably have to be repaired by vendor.


hope this helps

If the Windows installation CD cannot detect the hard drive to install Windows then the hard disk could be faulty or it may only need reseating.
First - remove the hard drive and connect it back into the laptop.
2nd - Boot up the laptop and go into the BIOS configuration and check if the BIOS detects the hard drive.
If the hard drive is detected then proceed with the Windows installation.
If the hard drive is not detected in the BIOS then most likely the hard drive is faulty.
In this case you need to replace the hard drive before you can install Windows.

Problem regarding booting the laptop


first, check if the hard drive is detected on bios. if it's not then try reseating it. restart computer and enter advanced boot options (by pressing f8 upon restarting). select last known good configuration then press enter, if it still doesnt load windows, restart system and enter advanced boot options again and select safe mode. if it still doesnt boot then you need to reinstall windows.
you will need to get an external cd/dvd rom in order to reinstall windows.
you can try copying the windows disc content onto a flash drive and boot from it but that method is not guaranteed.

Freezing in 'safe mode'


Have you tried accessing the bios to set boot order? It may be trying to load from the hdd before the optical/usb drive.

During the flash screen, press F2 (though it can vary by maker) and change your boot order to load the USB drive first.

Hope this helps!

My ASUS X83v laptop wont start up, it keeps rebooting.


Try booting in safe mode...if you are able to get into safe mode without it rebooting then you have a driver problem, Try updating all drivers and see if that works. If you can't even get into safe mode, then it could be either, Bad RAM, Motherboard, Corrupted Hard drive or power supply.

To trouble shoot Ram, if you have more than one piece, take all out except for one and try it, if it works, then try the other piece of RAM in the same slot, then try both in the other slot, this will tell you if it's your RAM or your RAM slot.

Motherboard, not much you can do

Corrupted Hard disk, try booting into safe mode with command Prompt and run chkdsk utility on your drive

Power supply, make sure the battery is charging, if possible try another battery fully charged for the same model, remove battery and plug laptop in, unplug and just use battery..


Hope some of this helps you

When turning my laptop on i get a message media test failure


You see this message when the laptop trying to boot from a remote server using the network card. If you didn’t see the PXE-E61 message before, it means that the network card was listed after the hard drive in the boot order (you can set the order in BIOS) and the laptop booted directly from the hard drive. Now, when the hard drive has failed, the laptop cannot detect it and tries to boot from the next available device – the network card. Your laptop is not configured to boot from a remote server using the network card, that’s why you are getting PXE-E61 Media test failure error. You have to replace the hard drive and reinstall the operating system.
