This issue is often caused by either an incorrect setting in CMOS Setup or a bad boot device, such as a bad hard drive.
Verify your boot options are properly set in CMOS setup. We recommend having the CD or disc drive as your first boot device and then hard drive as the second boot device.
If your CMOS Setup has an option to boot from the LAN disable this option.
If you have changed any CMOS settings, make sure to save and reboot the computer.
If this does not resolve the issue, try resetting the CMOS values to the default settings, save and exit.
Then try re-booting and tapping the f12 key which should start up a diagnostics page

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.

Loveno S10-2 - No bootable device found


Make sure your hard drive has higher priority in the boot options in BIOS. If it still doesn't boot then you will need to replace your hard drive. If it shows no hard drive in BIOS then the drive is most certainly bad and needs to be replaced.

I booted up and there was vibration and loud noise. It stopped after it was up and running. I did this twice. I then removed a dvd and tried again. normal. It has been two days nothing. is this a optical...


Computer is usually set to default boot drive to DVD/CD rom, if it's the case then it will seek a the DVD/CD first before booting up on HD, now if your DVD/CD rom has disc on it, it will read the disc first, that explains the vibration when the disc is rotating making a noise. If you would like to set the first boot device to HD? you have to configure it through the CMOS set-up.

How to enter the BIOS or CMOS setup.
Solution:
Because of the wide variety of computer manufacturers and BIOS manufacturers over the evolution of computers, there have been numerous different ways to enter the BIOS or CMOS Setup. Below is a listing of the majority of these methods as well as other recommendations for entering the BIOS setup.
Notice: If you are unable to get into the BIOS or CMOS setup because of a password contact your system administrator or the one that sets up your PC.

New computers
Thankfully, computers that have been manufactured in the last few years will allow you to enter the CMOS by pressing one of the below five keys during the boot. Usually it's one of the first three.
•F1
•F2
•DEL
•ESC
•F10

Then you will see something like this, set your first boot device to Hard Disk.

Acer aspire can't find the dvd to play cd's


In the device manager, select the DVD ROM and UNINSTALL / REMOVE the device.  Restart Windows . . . did this work?  If not, boot into your CMOS and see if the drive is being detected by the motherboard... if yes, look further and make sure the settings for the drive are correct. Make sure that all IDE interfaces are enabled in the CMOS settings (both)

Can't boot larger than 8gb hard drive


This is a known issue at HP, you should download and install the 68P4M ROM which will solve this:

- Fixes issue where system serial number was lost after upgrade to the new BIOS.
- Fixes variation in the noise of the fan when in motion.
- Fixes error where L1 cache shows only 16KB instead of 20KB in F10 Setup.
- Fixes error where FDISK could only see 8GB of 40GB and 60GB in the Multibay Hard Drive.

Unable to get beyond BIOS Post read out


During bootup, press and hold the DEL key for a few seconds. your system setup should appear. In the system setup,find the first boot device and use the pageup key until CDrom appears. then quit and chose Y to save changes. Now put the restordisk in the CD drive and reboot. I don't think Cleaing the CMOS will help you with this problem.

Big problems


If it gets to boot up screen you should be able to get into the bios; keep pressing either F2 or DEL when it boots up to get into advanced cmos settings, then make the cdrom as the first boot device. Press 'Y' when asked if want to save settings, then exit the bios screen and allow it to re boot, with your XP disc in the cdrom drive.
