There are several issues that can cause this err1err3 issue. It could be a bad hard disc (or a bad wire between the drive and the motherboard), an incorrect BIOS setting for the SATA hard drive or a problem with the master boot record (MBR). Make sure that there is no disc in the CD drive and disconnect any external storage devices (flash drive). Your computer may be trying to boot from a non-bootable disc.

To check the BIOS setting, turn off the computer and turn it back on. Press F10 continuously to access the BIOS on an HP computer. Some HP computers use F2 or F6. There should be a splash screen that tells you which to use. (If you see the error again, try this step again. It's easy to not have the key press noticed between the POST and the attempt to boot the computer.) Once in the BIOS, go to the Advanced Settings tab (one to the right) and go down to the SATA1 controller option. (Try AHCI.) Then press F10 to save and exit. (Note this isn't part of the BIOS on all HP machines - it does work for some.) See if there is a Diagnostics tab in the BIOS and try running the hard drive test.

Get an hard drive testing utility (ISO) and burn it to CD on another computer. You can set the first boot location when you go into the BIOS as above. With the bootable CD in the drive, restart the computer. (Some machines let you set the one-time boot location by pressing F12 on start up; as with entering the BIOS, it's easy to miss the timing. Just repeat the attempt.)

If the disc tests as good, you can try to repair the MBR. Use a repair tool or an OS install disc for your version of Vista (Home Premium). Boot from the CD as above. With the install disc, follow the on- screen directions and select the Repair option. You will need to enter the Command line mode. You'll need to enter Bootrec with the correct option. For more information, see the following document: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/927392 .

If you possibly can, remove the drive from your current computer before trying the repair. Use a USB/IDE/SATA adapter and another computer, see if the data on the disc can be copied to make a back up. This will work if the disc is still good. (It will also indicate if the cable was the problem if the disc failed the diagnostic tests.)

I hope this helps.

Is your cd drive listed as a device in My Computer? Click Start/My Computer and see if the CD Drive is listed along with the hard drives. If not that's your problem. To solve it you can remove the power cord, remove the battery, turn the laptop over and remove the one screw on the bottom that holds the cd drive then pull the drive out and put it back in (this is called reseating). Boot the laptop and see if the drive is now listed in My Computer.

If the drive is not listed then you will need to remove Upper and Lower Filters.

If after all this the drive still does not recognize or will not burn a cd you should try using Windows Media Player to burn something. Also If you had something like Nero as a burner software to burn, try using it.

My computer wont boot correctly


won't boot at all?
it's probably the BIOS settings
go to the BIOS settings by pressing F8 or DEL
go to advanced settings
look for "boot device priority" or something like that
set the first priority device as your harddisk
save & exit,restart,happy computing

the "boot device priority" maybe not placed on advanced setting,each BIOS has different interfaces,just look for something like that,it's easy

You can change the boot up order of devices in the BIOS. Go into the BIOS setup then to Boot up order and move the CD/DVD dirve as the first boot device and the hard drive as the 2nd boot device.
Then you boot up with a disc in the CD/DVD drive.

My laptop says bootmgr is missing and i dont know how to fix


First make sure that all usb devices are unplugged and remove all cd's or dvd's or sd cards etc.
If you are running Windows 7 or Vista you can try do a repair by hitting F8 while it boots and then select repair. If this does not work you will need a install disc. If you have Windows XP you will need an install CD to do a repair. I have attached a few links that may help explain in detail. Thanks for using fixya.
