Hi, I think that the operating has gone corrupt and needs to be reinstalled. First, make sure that your PC can read the hard disk in BIOS (at boot up, press F2 to enter BIOS and check "Drive Configuration). You should be able to find the hard drive (as well as CD/DVD ROM) here. If not check the hard disk cables etc. At boot up, you may also press F12 for Boot Menu and select the primary hard disk for booting up the PC. Secondly, boot the PC from CD ROM, Delete the partitions and make fresh partitions for installation of the operating system. You may also add the hard disk of your PC to another PC (as slave) and delete all the partitions from the operating system and make fresh partitions. Place the hard back into your PC and proceed with installation.
Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya! CreativeTECH
you will have to go into BIOS during the startup, I am not familiar with the FRU PN 02R4087 but the process is more or less the same for all PCs.
When you start your PC watch the screen carefully, at one point there will come a text similar to "to enter setup press Delete" usually it is either the Delete key or F2 or F10... watch your screen to find out which key is for the setup on your computer. you may have to start many times over before you get everything.
Once you have entered BIOS you will have to look for a page that contains an entry like "First Boot Device" or something similar. it should be set to HHD1 or CDROM or Disk... then follow the directions on how to change this value to what ever it is that you wish. Be Aware that there are other options in BIOS that in changing them you can quite possibly damage your computer, so do not change anything else unless you know what you are doing.
1) Switch on PC
2) Press F12, del or the ESC key to enter setup
3) Go to advanced options and then choose boot options
4) In boot options choose USB peripheral to be set as first boot device
5) Save and exit from the BIOS screen
As the PC restarts make sure the USB flash drive is plugged into the PC
Some computers allow you to select an alternate boot device by pressing the F12 key as you boot up.
If your computer doesn't have this option then go into the BIOS configuration and change the boot order and make the CD-ROM the first boot device and the hard drive the second boot device.
Open Your system and there is a Battery which looks like a Coin. that is CMOS Battery (CR2032) Change that battery and then Reboot your system and try go to BIOS menu with DEL , F11 , F1 or F2. Either of these Buttons can Work.
"The BIOS Setup program can be used to view and change the BIOS settings for the computer. The BIOS Setup program is accessed by pressing the <F2> key after the Power-On Self-Test (POST) memory test begins and before the operating system boot begins."
That is from the manual for the board, instead of reinstalling Windows you may as well just change the product key on one of the installations to your other copy.
