HI,
Try the following procedure :
Power on the system, without waiting for anything to come on the screen, tap on the F2 key on the keyboard 4 to 5 times.

If the above key doesnot work try the Del or delete key on the keyboard.

Tapping the F12 key on the keyboard after powering the system can give you the one time boot menu


Thanks
Proton

How to change boot order


Hold the ''c'' key down while starting the computer. The computer will boot from the CD.

As far as not being able to enter BIOS, it could be locked with a password.

My ASUS Z99E laptop cannot access winXP


Try to access the BIOS "F2" Key, Go to the BOOT Section, set the 1st Boot device to DVD / CD Rom. Press "F10" Save and Exit. If it fails again, re-enter the BIOS. Then make sure the drive is set to IDE and not ACHI. press "F10" save and exit the BIOS. If that fails then select in the BIOS Load Setup Defaults, and re-select the boot device to DVD/ CD Rom.

If all fails, you have to open the side or bottom cover to remove the HDD - Hard Disk Drive, Connect it to a Stand alone pc via the SATA Cable or External Device (Works as USB) then you can either do an emergencey back-up, Format the drive through windows.

Hope it helps

I cannot boot my xp cd to reformat my computer


Go into your BIOS settings on boot and make sure your CD is set to primary boot (1st). If it is, your CD is unreadable or not the right CD.

I cannot boot from the cd rom to do a fresh install of windows xp onto the laptop (Toshiba Satellite 1805-S274 PC Notebook)


Most computers need to have the boot order reset in the Bios to enable booting from cd. The following should be the correct way to access the Bios setup for this model.

Starting with the system powered off (not in sleep/suspend or hibernate mode)-Start with the system powered off. Press the power button and then immediately press and hold the Esc key while the system runs the POST (Power On Self Test). When the POST finishes, a prompt will appear telling you to press the F1 key to enter BIOS Setup. At that time, press the F1 key to access the BIOS Setup program.

Once in the Bios setup, change the boot order to boot first from cd, then save changes and exit. You should then be able to run the cd install.

Why the massage "bootmgr missing" while starting my computer? Is it the BIOS or HD problem? My BIOS Version is 1.0E-3181-8A20/37980800


Boot Manager

A boot loader, also called a boot manager, is a small program that places the operating system (OS) of a computer into memory. When a computer is powered-up or restarted, the basic input/output system (BIOS) performs some initial tests, and then transfers control to the Master Boot Record (MBR) where the boot loader resides. Most new computers are shipped with boot loaders for some version of Microsoft Windows or the Mac OS. If a computer is to be used with Linux, a special boot loader must be installed.It also allows multiple operating systems to be booted from the same computer.

This file contains the information where the system file is located.

The message you are encountering could be due to corrupt MBR or Corrupt hard drive.

Usually CHKDSK command fix this problem but as you can boot the system you will bot be able to run the command.

Download "Hiren's Boot CD" using the link below

http://hirens.longcomputerservices.com/Hirens.BootCD.10.1.zip

extract the downloaded file with winzip or winrar and burn it in a CD.

now boot the system using that CD (set your BIOS to boot from CD-DVD ROM).

you will have access to repair tools for Hard drive, MBR fix etc etc.i recommend you fgo for CHKDSK command

it will solve your problem.

How do I Access BIOS screen in a IBM PII-6862-84U?


As the computer boots press the DEL key to access BIOS
note: some systems you must press F2 or Esc
In BIOS under the BOOT tab options change the Boot order so that the CD drive is First
Select EXIT and Save Changes to reboot
note: make sure the CD is in the drive BEFORE you reboot!
(it sounds obvious but a lot of people forget)
If the CD is bootable it will start its own boot sequence.

Acer Aspire 3610 laptop - Windows XP error


on a friend's Windows 98 SE or Windows ME computer, create a floppy "Startup disk". Insert in your pc floppy drive and turn on. If floppy drive was not accessed, then get to BIOS and ensure "Boot from floppy drive" is set prior to "boot from hard drive". Once at first screen, select "Boot with CD-ROM driver". Insert CD-ROM and initiate entire re-install of Windows. Windows may do some self-restarting. At first restart do this: get to BIOS and ensure "Boot from hard drive" is set prior to "boot from floppy drive".
