Check whether the data cable is connected directly to your CD drive, if we leave first port and connect to second port then your cd Drive may not be recognised. It might be a mere problem you are facing.

You will need to enter the BIOS setup and change the boot drive otherwise the system will try to boot from the C: drive which is always the default. You can open each menu item without danger as long as you change only that you need and once changed, you will have to save the change and change it back to C: after you have successfully installed the OS.

The BIOS menu changes with different versions and manufacturers so I can't give you much guidance and entering the BIOS setup is also variable but tapping one or more keys during the first instant of the BIOS/CMOS boot sequence will get you in and it may flash a message in text to tell you which key for 'Setup.' This appears often in the lower left corner of the screen, but briefly. If you miss it, just hit Ctrl-Alt-Del and restart the system, this doesn't hurt anything until Windows is trying to load. Typically, it can be an F(n) key, others Esc. Try F1, F5, F8, F11 if no message appears.

How to boot with usb flash drive. detailed please, I'm trying to many diff ways nothing working, bios is the only thing on comp.


It is possible to boot from a USB drive....but only if the USB drive has been formatted as bootable, in the same way that OS CDs and DVDs are bootable media. You have to have an operating system either on the hard drive or on the flash drive in order to boot the computer. The BIOS is simply a "Basic Input-Output System" that interfaces the computer hardware to the OS, whatever media it is on. That is why you have to select the boot device and the boot device priority in the BIOS during setup, so it can direct itself to the bootable OS. Once you have installed an OS, then all will work fine. Until then, you will continue to have issues. Normally, with Window-based systems (you don't say what OS you are trying to use), you would insert the bootable Windows setup disk in the CD/DVD drive, ensure the BIOS was set to boot to CD/DVD first, and start the computer. The windows setup file would load itself and start the OS install process. It may even be necessary to partition and format the hard drive during this evolution, but the setup program would lead you through that as well. I have seen Windows setup files loaded to USB sticks, but they require a special process to generate so the BIOS sees the USB as bootable.

I foprgot my pasword and sign up with a. differen t password and it still does not work can u help me


If you are referring to your Computer Password and as long as you have your Windows XP CD, you can get back into your system using a simple but effective method made possible by a little known access hole in Windows XP.

Here's how with a step-by-step description of the initial Repair process.

1. Place your Windows XP CD in your cd-rom and start your computer (it's assumed here that your XP CD is bootable - as it should be - and that you have your bios set to boot from CD)
2. Keep your eye on the screen messages for booting to your cd Typically, it will be "Press any key to boot from cd"
3. Once you get in, the first screen will indicate that Setup is inspecting your system and loading files.
4. When you get to the Welcome to Setup screen, press ENTER to Setup Windows now
5. The Licensing Agreement comes next - Press F8 to accept it.
6. The next screen is the Setup screen which gives you the option to do a Repair.
It should read something like "If one of the following Windows XP installations is damaged, Setup can try to repair it"
Use the up and down arrow keys to select your XP installation (if you only have one, it should already be selected) and press R to begin the Repair process.
7. Let the Repair run. Setup will now check your disks and then start copying files which can take several minutes.
8. Shortly after the Copying Files stage, you will be required to reboot. (this will happen automatically - you will see a progress bar stating "Your computer will reboot in 15 seconds"
9. During the reboot, do not make the mistake of "pressing any key" to boot from the CD again! Setup will resume automatically with the standard billboard screens and you will notice Installing Windows is highlighted.
10. Keep your eye on the lower left hand side of the screen and when you see the Installing Devices progress bar, press SHIFT + F10. This is the security hole! A command console will now open up giving you the potential for wide access to your system.
11. At the prompt, type NUSRMGR.CPL and press Enter. Voila! You have just gained graphical access to your User Accounts in the Control Panel.
12. Now simply pick the account you need to change and remove or change your password as you prefer. If you want to log on without having to enter your new password, you can type control userpasswords2 at the prompt and choose to log on without being asked for password. After you've made your changes close the windows, exit the command box and continue on with the Repair (have your Product key handy).
13. Once the Repair is done, you will be able to log on with your new password (or without a password if you chose not to use one or if you chose not to be asked for a password). Your programs and personalized settings should remain intact.

How can i repair my CPU cause of problem TDLR missing? how can i repair my CPU?


NTLDR is missing in windows XP

The Windows 2000 and Windows XP CDs supplied by Microsoft has a tool called the Recovery Console which can be used to repair errors that prevent Windows XP from starting using the command line. OEM versions of Windows XP, including computers that were supplied with Windows XP preinstalled, may not have this utility.

This problem may occur if the basic input/output system (BIOS) on your computer is outdated, or if one or more of the following Windows boot files are missing or damaged:

Ntldr
Ntdetect.com
Boot.ini

Check your drives for floppy,USB storage devices,CDs and any other bootable media.Because sometmes these things makes problems.Then go to BIOS and do the BIOS settings to boot from the source where the OS is installed.

1: Insert the Windows XP bootable CD into the computer.

2: When prompted to press any key to boot from the CD, press any key.

3: Once in the Windows XP setup menu press the "R" key to repair Windows.

4: Log into your Windows installation by pressing the "1" key(most of the cases it will be "1" only) and pressing enter.

5: You will then be prompted for your administrator password, enter that password.

6: From the command prompt, copy NTLDR and NTDETECT.COM from the i386 folder of the CD to the root folder of the hard drive. In the example commands given below, C: is the hard drive and D: is the CD-ROM drive. You will need to change the drive letters if appropriate:

COPY D:I386NTLDR C:
COPY D:I386NTDETECT.COM C:

Once both of these files have been successfully copied, remove the CD from the computer and reboot.

System can't bootup any cd or dvd


Do you have a Win98 install CD? If yes, you should be able to tell it to boot with CD-ROM support.....then use xp disk to load or install your OS.......I'm doing that right now on a different system. It will format your drive first....which takes a looooooooooooong time, however, it is worth it.

Windows doesnt load up stays on this black screen


Most probably it is the problem with your hard drive's MBR (master boot record).

First try booting the system from bootable CD or DVD, if that succeeds that will be the sign that everything is ok with your machine but you have problem with your OS (operating system).

Try reformating the hard disk and resintalling Windows or doing system recovery from CDs provided from your vendor.

To get bootable CD with OS, easiest thing to do is to get one of the linux distributions that can be loaded from the CD.
Smallest and simplest is SLAX.

Burn it on CD and try booting your computer.


Good luck,

Administrator password


Passwords. Those ubiquitious alpha-numeric codes that protect us and give us access to everything digital. Unfortunately, passwords can be confusing because, though your computer likely won't forget a password, you very well might. When this happens, you can be locked out from your whole system, as in the case of the Windows XP Administrator Password. This article will show you how to remove an Administrator password.
Instructions:
Insert your Windows XP CD into your CD drive and boot your computer. If you receive the message "press any key to boot from CD," press any key.
Step 2 Press Enter to setup Windows. After accepting the license agreement, you wil be asked if you want start a Repair process.
Step 3 Press R to begin the Repair process. Setup will now check your disks and then start copying files, which can take several minutes. After this, reboot. Let the computer boot normally (do not press a key to boot from CD).
Step 4 Keep your eye on the lower left hand side of the screen. When you see the Installing Devices progress bar, press SHIFT + F10. This will open a command line console.
Step 5 Type NUSRMGR.CPL at the prompt and press Enter. This will give you access to User Accounts. Remove or change your password. Write it down! After the repair is finished, you will be able to log on with your new password.
Second way:there is some recovery tool like Windows Password Recovery Tool 3.0 http://www.windowspasswordsrecovery.com/ can help you.
Good luck!
If i am helpful please rate me.
Thank you.
