Compaq CQ50 wont load


YOU are to be COMMENDED!

Do you know how many do not even post the manufacturer name of the computer, much less the model number?

Plus adding the diagnostic measures you have posted?

Wish more people would use the problem area you have used, and wrote a PAGE! lol!

Do need the model number though, along with the model series number you posted. This way I can look at the BIOS versions.
(Example - CQ50-100CA)

Need to ask.........is CDROM the first boot device in Boot Options?
(BIOS Setup)

Could be of course, but you didn't post it. Makes a BIG difference.
The computer HAS to boot from the CDROM, then.

Post back in a Comment.

I want to upgrade the hard drive on my Advent 6001 laptop to a 250gb one. How do I then copy Windows onto the new hard drive as the laptop doesn`t recognise the CDROM as a boot device, not even in the


Running under the assumption that the CD is actually working, have you checked the BIOS settings to indicate that you want the CD to be the first boot device?

Alternatively, some if not most systems will accept an F12 during boot up to query the user where to boot from.

Dell Optiplex GX270 will not boot from disk


Does it show

boot from cdrom?
did you answer (Y)
then hit spacebar?
have the bios set to boot from cdrom/first boot device cd-rom?
If any of these settings are not applyed you will not restore xp on your computer

go into bios and conferm settings

first boot device if set as floppy or hard drive change to cdrom
on some systems you can hit the (f12) key to bring up a boot window and select the cdrom and boot from there then it will ask the normal questions

Getting problem in formatting the IBM PC


check if the cable from the cd rom connected to your ibm pc if its ok , also check the master, slave configuration pins into the back of your cdrom. make sure that theres no conflict between the hard disk and the cdrom. Your cd rom may probably cannot be detected. make sure that it is working first. then install the hard disk. The hard disk must be in primary master and the cd rom must be in primary slave. then try booting it to your cd rom. also, try checking if your windows xp setup disk is bootable, it means that it can boot from cd rom. PM me if you have other experiences after doing what i adviced. Thank You.. heres my email. jmizpahadonai777@gmail.com

Unable to boot win xp cd. not detected by compaq presario 5000 series interneal cd rom LTN 403 DQ24


Drive requires cd drivers to run Boot CD.
Some versions came with floppy disk to start cdrom drives, This will also require a floppy drive.

You may also try hitting f10 to enter bios setup make sure cdrom is bootable.

Unable to detect cdrom on nec laptop


You need to check if it is a specific disc isssue or driver error or if it is the actual cdrom drive that is not functioning correctly. Please go to device managers and see if your cd rom drive is working correctly, then post back.

Make sure the cmos setup is set to try booting from the CDROM. There are various methods to access cmos setup...but usually you need to press either the Delete key, or F10 or F12 right after turning on the power.

If it won't boot from the CDROM, the problem is is more likely to be in the power supply or motherboard than the hard drive.
