    Need more info; are you getting anything displayed on your monitor?
    If so, is it hanging during the boot sequence and what are the screen contents at that point?
    Why are you trying to 'restore' the system?

My hp a1540n will flash the blue light once but will not do ANYTHING else.


Do you still have original cds that came with your computer? The bluescreen is an indication of a serious issue with your computer that may require reisntalling everything on the computer from the original cds that came with it.

My desktop compaq presario s4300nx starts up , i can accses set up with f1 but cant start recovery with F10 however the F10 button works in setup, no good to me, ...i have recovery disks the pc just...


you will need a Windows boot disk / Windows install disk / WinXP disk to reboot the PC and install / or repair your OS

rescue disk will not boot your PC
to enable that you need to enter the BIOS, press F1, F2 or Del to enter BIOS , then you need to look for the BOOT seq in BIOS, change that to CD DVD drive as the 1st boot device, Save and Exit and insert the boot CD and restart
this should give you the solution

Hi, I have problem with my ACER P4, when the power botton is pressed, it starts and the power dies after 5 seconds


maybe 2 reasons
  1. virus attack
  2. hardware failure
virus attack - best bet use rescue disk from nt virus company like kaspersky rescue disk, bitdefender rescue disk n etc hardware failure - maybe cause by heat...check your coller system like cpu fan
it's worth to try :)

How to reformat or reboot my comp witout any cds


You can't reformat without CD's

The most common cause for a slow PC is either a virus or malware.

Your problem is that you say you cannot download anything so you would be unable to run an online scan to check your system.

If you have access to another PC you could download F-Secure rescue disc and burn to CD then set your PC to boot from CD and run a scan before your system boots.

Details here.

Boot manager is missing an cd drive is not reading cds to do recovery


make an ISO image of an operating system in a flash drive preferably in a 8GB one.
then from bios enable boot for other device
and if there is an option change the 1st priority boot device to others.. or usb as available.
**make sure it not hard drive, else you will keep on getting the same message.

then power on the computer and you can reinstall the os.
then check if the issue of Cd drive is fixed or not.
if not, open the chasis and reseat the cables of the drive and try again.
if that also does not works, let me know I have a work around...

but i cant ensure there is any other hardware problem we'll check.

Its A file Read Erroror write error, You cany try

Burn another copy of the rescue cd and see if the copy works,,
Use an original windows cd insted of the rescue cd,,
if those dont work,
You will need to replace your harddrive,
and this might render (streess the word might) your recovery cd useless in which case you will need to get another windows cd..

let me know what happens or if you need more specific details
