I HAVE A COMPAQ ARMADA 1530DM , WHEN I TURN IT ON IT SAYS NON SYSTEM DISK OR DISK ERROR. HOW CAN I FIX THIS PROBLEM


First make sure that there is no non-boot disc in either the 3.5" or the CD drive. If those are not the problem, your hard drive has either failed or lost the Master Boot Record information. You will need a Windows Install or Upgrade CD for your computer's OS. (You may also need a 3.5" boot disc for the OS.) What OS are you using on that computer. Alternatively, some third party repair software or Partition Management software can restore the boot information if the hard drive is still viable.

Try to boot to the CD and choose repair. Go the the Command Prompt (Recovery Console). Then for XP, try the fixmbr command. You can check if there is any viable data on the hard drive by trying to change drives and then typing dir to get the directory list. Try C: (enter) dir (enter). Look for a Windows folder. (Note: some computers have a recovery partition. Don't mistake that for your Windows drive.)

If your hard drive has failed, you'll need a new drive. Then use the license on the computer and an install disc for that original license. Please note: the recovery disc if you have one often doesn't work with new hardware. You will lose any third party software that was installed by Compaq. You'll need to reinstall your own software.

I hope this helps. Please add more information about your computer for additional support. If you do not have an OS disc, search for a member of a Windows User Group in your area. They often have extra copies.

These days PC viruses have become very common therefore, there are several instances when after inserting your flash drive in an infected PC, you end up not seeing your files anymore. It can also take place after scanning your flash drive with certain anti-virus programs. This normally happens a lot with folders. Many people after showing hidden files, if they still don't see them, think that they are gone. No they are not. I have solved a lot of such problems for people. Here's what to do:

Download 'WinRAR' software for free on the internet. An example is http://www.rarlab.com/rar/wrar390.exe
1. Now double click and follow the instructions to install.
2. Be sure that you have inserted the affected flash drive in usb port.
3. Click the start button and go to programs. And then to WinRAR.
4. When WinRAR opens, use the drop down arrow to select your flash drive.
5. After selecting it, you will see that all your 'missing' folders and files are showing (except the files that were removed because they were infected by viruses).
6. Now you cannot right-click and copy so you would have to use control+c to copy.
7. Create a folder on a different drive that you would copy the files that you need into.
8. Now, in the WinRAR, you can open any folder that you need by highlighting all or a selected number of files and use control+c to copy and then paste them in your created folder ( by either right-clicking and selecting paste or using control+v).

I recommend that you recreate the folders that you have on the flash drive using the same folder names and then copy only files into them. This is because, files always show when copied but folders do not always show when copied. You can then wipe your flash drive and recopy the retrieved files/folders into it. That is all. You have successfully recovered your files.

Hope this was helpful. All the best.

My toshiba cannot boot through USB. it dispalays "windows missing" yet the flash disk has got a windows xp setup


Hi,

Your flash drive only has the setup program not the actual OS as it would be on your hard drive.

The fact that it won't boot through your USB is because there is no OS on your laptop with the required drivers for your USB and other hardware, for that.

You need to have OS installed on your hard drive to be able to run all the peripheral hardware, else nothing happens.

Please install the apropriate Operating System (OS) on your hard drive, and voila!!! magic happens after that.

Cheers, Peter

Bootmgr v3500 missing


which operating system ??

There are a number of possible causes for BOOTMGR errors, including the most common "BOOTMGR is missing" error message.

The most common reasons for BOOTMGR errors include corrupt and misconfigured files, hard drive and operating system upgrade issues, corrupt hard drive sectors an outdated BIOS and damaged or loose IDE cables

Anothe reason you might see BOOTMGR errors is if your PC is trying to boott from a hard drive or flash drive that is not properly configured to be booted from. In other words, it's trying to boot from a
non-bootable source.


This also would apply to media on an optical drive or floppy drive that you're trying to boot from.

make sure there are no disks in cd floppy usb drives


Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE)) make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

if its a flat ribbon 40 pin IDE it will be the fist to fail


make sure all power and data leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs


data and power to travel through every working device and to continue its cycle and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error


also make sure you have set it boot from you hard drive in BIOS



The solutions is very simply... remove your hard-disk and attached to other PC or laptop as an external hard-disk.


When it is detected, go to my computer, right-click, untick that (stupid) option, immediately you see the message uncompressing and its done. Put your hard-disk back in to your machine its ready..


w7

insert your OS CD
go to DOS window and type in your OS driver (usualy C:/


type in bootrec /FixMbr
then type in bootrec /fixboot
t

hen type in bootrec /rebuildbcd
then type in exit


restart your computer
it will work 100% only if you prompt at the same order


hope

Acer aspire one won't boot


One bad lead or faulty connection point can cause a computer to shutdown continue restarting on a cycle or fail to detect your hard drive boot up


test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive SATA

the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty


make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty


even something as small as faulty fan lead can cause you problems

computers need all of the data and power to travel through every working device and to have an end for a computer to be able work properly


a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive check all power and data leads make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd drives need to have current go through make sure these devices are working


check the CPU central processing unit make sure it has thermal paste and dust free secure seating


also check your computer ram modules and cmos battery make sure it has charge and they are dust free and securely seated some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in


hope it helps

Hard drive failed could it be loose


Do the system detect your hard drive? If detects, try to get it partitioned. If you can, you won.

My laptop does not work it says PXE-E61:Media


Put 'Hard Drive C:' before 'Network' in the boot order
(If the hard drive does not appear in the boot order, that's why the PXE network boot agents start)

Note : Check that the hard drive is seen in the BIOS setup
Cause:
PXE (pronounce Pixie) is an agent used to boot on to the network
It's using the DHCP protocol to localise a server where the image of the OS is located
In order to PXE boot press F12 at startup or configure the boot order in BIOS to display 'Network' before 'Hard Drive C:'
If, for any reason, the hard drive is not seen the computer will attempt to boot on the network controller.
That is caused by the hard drive is missing, unplugged or failed

Windows Vista sucks, and there is one reason to prove it.
Was the folder ever a zip folder? Try changing the extention to .zip and see if that helps.
