Reinstalling operating system from disk


you will need a full windows install disk. You can go to your bios (different computer make/models require different key press at startup to get there) and just select your cd rom to be the primary. Once selected, restart with the install disk loaded and it should immediately attempt to install windows.

Boots only to bios settings, then blank screen after save and exit. will not take a cd boot.


Hello, since it can boot to bios setting, then have you try configuring the boot order,the cd drive should come first,after that your hard disc, if the hard drive comes before the cd rom then it would not recognise it. Change the settings and Save this settings, then try to boot from the cd again, if this does not work then i am rest assured that your hard drive has a problem,and you need to find solution to it by getting a new one. cheers Regards

I recently had a huge virus attack on my laptop and there is still this worm that my system picks up but not my anti virus i need to format my laptop but it does not seem to want to boot from the cd what...


Take a can of air and blow some air onto the laser gently to make sure no dust or dirt is affecting it.

Then go into the BIOS and make sure the cd-rom is the first boot device. Then put your operating system cd into the drive and "press any key" when that message comes up so the system can boot up off of the cd.

If after setting the cd-rom as the 1st boot device you can't get the laptop to boot up off of the OS cd then that means the cd-rom is bad and would need to be replaced. When you boot up off of the cd-rom your in DOS and any viruses or worms wouldn't affect it.

Method 1 :
  Installed Operating system with an external usb CD or DVD Rom drive.Set your laptop to boot from USB CD ROM in your BIOS.

Method 2 :
  Yoou need an PC with windows server 2000/2003 with RIS (Remote Installation server Set up plus DHCP (Dynamic Host configuration protocol) server ).Change your laptop BIOS Boot setting to boot from Network and installed as if you are installing through  normal procedure.

I'm trying to run the Product recovery CD Rom in my Satellite Pro A30. I'm getting the following message:- Error No. 11122 Message :- Cannot load Bit Map file. Max height = 100 What's my problem?


Sir,
The error occurs if the drive cannot be recognized by BIOS. It happens if the drive is not compatible because of the settings.
The drives are set to master/slave/C-selc.
You have to use the compatible and supported one to solve this issue.

I have read in the net that sometimes it's possible to flash the drive with any illegal software to change the master/slave settings but this is not advisable. But I have never tried it.
I have also read in the forum that if this error message appears every time and it's not possible to use the drive and the BIOS cannot recognize this device so the connection of pin 45 and 47 could solve this issue sometimes.

Thanks Good luck

Hi i have problem in booting window 98 cd in my lenovo laptop. i want this because i want this for formating my leaptop with DISKMANAGER SOFTWARE but it not running the bootable disk.


in the bios you must enable auto detect for primary master, primary slave, secondary master and secondary slave if it is set to none your computer wont boot the cd.

i dunno what bios options they give you on your lenovo laptop.

is this a legitmate retail windows 98 SE disk?

if its a bootleg copy it might not be bootable.

don't forget to backup your data before you format

Hard drive not working


hi im josh in cebu phils.Friend if that happens whrein your 2nd hdd dont detect. Try to use these solutions. Check first the jumper of the hardisk whether it is stated as slave or master. if 2nd disk is master the jumper should be in the master and if it is slave the jumper must be slave. or try to use another IDE cable. put them as both master the first hdd in first ide slot and your 8 GB 2nd hardisk in 2nd slot as master also. or try to enter bios setup utility then try to check or detect the both device.thats all good luck

Cannot boot up Inspiron 8200


Could be a tough one. Can you get into the bios ( F8  or F10 ) while booting and check if the HDD is being recognised in the first place ? If it recognises, then check for Boot sequence. I would also suggest to try the Recovery CD that came along with computer.
