Try tapping F8 at start up and try booting in safe mode...If this fails you will need to reinstall your OS.

What if disk drive does not open during system says reboot and selesct proper booot device


Sounds like you may have a CD/DVD in the drive that is stuck and/or not inserted properly. There should be a small, pin-size opening on the front plate of the CD drive. Find a large paper clip, bend out one end of it then insert into the pin-hole. Push it until the drive pops open.

Please verify if you don;t have a floppy disk in your drive. If you don't then you have to verify in BIOS if is selected proper boot device - HDD.
If everything is set then you have problem with your hard disk, must check and install new operating system.

Your notebook does not see the proper boot files on your C drive. Many times the boot.ini has been corrupted.
You will need a Windows XP Install CD mounted in the CD Rom. When you boot the system you need to choose the CD as the boot device (if the notebbok does not do it by default) then typr R to enter the recovery console. Once you get the C: prompt you will need to create a new boot.ini file using the bootcfg command. See the following website for details in using the Recovery Console:

I've read this problem due to new hardware interferences with desktop computers, all they had to do is change a few pins around on the harddrives.. since this is a laptop, and is quite difficult and dodgy to access the hardware, the only other suggestion is to reinstall windows with a recovery disk, or windows CD-ROM.

Hope this helps :)
