Probably your HDD data cables are bad. Try to change it and then start your PC

Computer does not boot:


Press [F2] when you see the message, and see if it will enter the BIOS. See if it detects your Hard Drive....it does not appear to.

you may have a bad hard drive or a corrupted boot sector. Take to a repair shop and they can test the hard drive for you.

Hello robertmcc_90, I do not have the all the "Configuration Settings" for every OS on the market; but the general and principle application should get you to the main area of "Restoring the Computer fixing the problem." Follow these instructions to recover your computer. 1. The first thing you want to do is "Restart the computer; once the computer begins to "Boot Up!" 2. "Do the following; this may take some timing." You will notice that there will be wording, a prompt, at the bottom of the "Screen" Press F2, and Press F12, it may differ on your computer, once you see this on the screen, quickly press, tap the[DEL]key, located at the top [Right] next to the Scroll Lock, and END keys." 3. "Remember as I said before it may take some timing. You will know if you done it correctly, when you see the {Windows Boot Manager} Heading on the screen; at the bottom of the screen, it will read "Recovery Environment." Note: The wording may differ depending on the type & model computer you have, "just keep in mind that you want to "Repair the Computer". 4. Now, there will be a long list of "Options" to choose from, select the option that best describes; "Repair your Computer." After you have selected the item, follow all the instructions "Carefully!" The computer will restart once finished, and you will receive a "message" stating if, and what happen? What to do or try next! Thanks for using FixYa; and I hope all goes well, paul7fo9

A dark screen saying disk read error occurred


This could be the result of a couple different things: 1) the hard drive has crashed and is no longer able to boot into your operating system, 2) the system folder to your operating system has been corrupted and missing the files to allow it to boot up, 3) the connector between the hard drive and the motherboard has something wrong with it and isn't allowing your computer to recognize that the hard drive is there.

Black screen with info that pops up immediately upon booting up


Hi:
That sort of message comes up when your computer is unable to boot to the hard drive. Those messages basically mean that it is trying to boot from a network, (which it isn't hooked upt to). Your hard drive could have failed, or your boot sequence could have been inadvertently changed too.
First, make sure your thumb drive is not installed in the laptop, as this can cause the problem too.


You can check your boot sequence by rebooting your computer, and entering the BIOS, usually by hitting F1 or F2 on start up. Tab over to the Boot section, and see what the boot order is: Usually it should be: CDROM drive, Then Hard drive, then removeable drives.

If this is ok, check and make sure that your hard drive is showing up in the BIOS on the main page too.
If not, it might be bad....
Hope this helps!

when the logo comes on, press the "tab" key. It should turn the logo off and show you what the computer is doing. This may help:

THIS IS FOR HP AND COMPAQ USERS (it might help others as well)
i had the same problem with my compaq preasrio v6000.
ALL U HAVE TO DO IS
1- START UP UP UR COMPUTER AND PRESS F10
2-GO TO DIAGNOSTICS
3-RUN A HARD DISK TEST
IF IT PASSES THEN YOU JUST NEED TO RE-INSTALL TO YOUR OPERATING SYSTEM
IF NOT YOU WILL HAVE TO CHANGE YOUR HARD DISK.

Or try this:
Go into the BIOS.. Go into the BOOT options.. and hit Shift+1 to disable the Realtek boot option.. pop in the disk you want to boot from.. and make sure you set your boot options to CD-Rom and then HDD.. and just wait.. be patient.. and the blue screen (for booting) will show up! :)

When i turn on the laptop computer, a message appears: primary hard disk drive not found, fixed optical drive not found. No bootable devices: strike F1 to retry boot;F2 for set up utility. I tried but...


Your BIOS is looking for a drive to "boot" from and does not see your harddrive or CD-rom.

You may have a harddrive failure or bad drive controller.

One way to see is to load your operating system disc in your CD-rom and see if the computer sees the drive and boots up. If it boots, try to locate your "C" drive. If you can't locate the harddrive, it's a good bet it's damaged.

If the CD-rom doesn't boot, it is most likely a bad drive controller or cable.

Freezing


So, you post a message like a telegram. "freezing". since you never mentioned any other details, i have no option to assume that its a dell some laptop. the solution which i am writing is universal and applies to all the laptops.
Before we begin: lets check if your hard drive is fine or not. follow the instructions as they are.
1. Turn off your laptop.
2. Press and Hold the Fn fey located at the bottom left hand corner, before you turn on the machine.
3. Then turn on the machine and keep the Fn button down.
4. As soon as you see, Pre boot system assesment, you can release the Fn key.
5. Let this go on, and then you would see a rainbow, press Y to continue.

Results.:
1. No problems have been found on the system, would you like to run the remaining memory test. ANSWER IS : NO. press the power button to turn off the machine.

2. Error code: - 1000-0141, 0142, 0143, 0144, 0145, 0146. or 2000-0141, 0142, 0143, 0144, 0145, 0146.

Replace your hard drive. ASAP.

Now if no error comes, then the best option is to reset the computer back to factory settings the day when you first bought it. but remember you would loose all your personal information on it.

FOR WINDOWS VISTA :
Restore the computer's software to original condition.

1 Turn on the computer.
2 As the computer starts, press <F8> on the keyboard until the Advanced Boot Options menu appears on the screen.
NOTE: -
You must press <F8> before the Windows logo appears on the screen. If you press <F8> after the Windows logo appears on the screen, the Advanced Boot Options menu will not appear on the screen. If you do not see the Advanced Boot Options menu, restart the computer, and then repeat this step until you see the menu on the screen.
3 Press the <Down Arrow> on the keyboard to select Repair Your Computer on the Advanced Boot Options menu, and then press <Enter>.
4 Specify the language settings that you want, and then click Next.
5 Log in as a user who has administrative credentials, and then click OK.
6 Click Dell Factory Image Restore.
7 In the Dell Factory Image Restore window, click Next.
8 Click to select the Yes, reformat hard drive and restore system software to factory condition check box.
9 Click Next.
The computer is restored to the default factory configuration.

10 When the restore operation is completed, click Finish to restart the computer.
The software is now installed as it was when the computer was first received.

FOR WINDOWS XP: -



1 Turn on the computer.
2 When the Dell splash screen appears during the computer startup process, press and hold <Ctrl> and then press <F11>. Then, release both keys at the same time.
NOTE: Some systems like Inspiron Mini 9 (910) do not support System Restore as they do not have <F11> nor any substitute.
3 In the Dell PC Restore by Symantec window, click Restore. Alternatively, press <Tab> to highlight Restore, and then press <Enter>.
4 When a warning message appears stating that all data will be lost, click Confirm, or press <Tab> to highlight Confirm and then press <Enter>.

The Progress window will appear. Once the restore process starts, Dell PC Restore by Symantec usually takes about 8 to 10 minutes to finish.

When the restore process is complete, the following message will appear:
The system recovery process was successful.

5 Click Finish or press <Tab> to highlight Finish and then press <Enter> to restart the computer.
The software is now installed as it was when the computer was first received.

My acer aspire one, have en error realtek, somting about ethernet. then the windows don't go up. so start with the screen that said windows, and quickly appear a blue screen with a message unmountable...


If it be the connector cable problem then replace the 40-wire cable with an 80-wire UDMA cable.
If it's a BIOS settings problem then load the 'Fail-Safe' default settings, and then reactivate the most frequently used options such as USB Support.

If it's a damaged file system case then:-
1.Insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.

Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted.

2.When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.

3.If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console.

4.When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.

5.At the command prompt, type chkdsk /r , and then press ENTER.

6.At the command prompt, type exit , and then press ENTER to restart your computer.

This takes a bit longer, but the system should boot back into Windows.
