I recently replaced a Hdd on a PC and downloaded an op system to a usb and all I get is this screen,is there something I'm doing wrong or missing something?


Try to make sure that the installation that you put on the flash drive is bootable. Use pendrive Linux http://www.pendrivelinux.com/universal-usb-installer-easy-as-1-2-3/
I personally use it as it is very easy to make bootable flash drives

I installed a wierd bios on my compaq presario sr5710f desktop computer and am trying to reset the bios back to factory default. I have downloaded the bios setup file from hp's website and tried to...


Need more details on this situation. Was the Presario originally configured with Windows Vista Home Premium OS factory AND are you still running the original factory Windows Vista OS on it? I know that the original owner of my SR5710F had from the factory, Windows Vista Home Premium edition (32 bit). Compaq's website only shows 1 BIOS update available for this OS. If you try to run that executable file on any other version of Windows, you will get the error message that you described. I myself am working on being able to reflash the BIOS from a bootable CD/DVD/ or thumb drive. The executeable update to flash BIOS from Compaq's / HP's website indicates a version of 5.27. When I look at the CMOS memory, the screen reports a version of 5.31. How this happened in the life of this machine, I can only speculate. I do have the 3 dvd set which is supposed to re-image the hard drive to its factory released condition, but the load fails every time at the same place (3rd dvd, at 92% complete, with an error 1005). Compaq's / HP's web site does warn against flashing BIOS with any thing other than what the company certifies. I called Compaq tech support and their advice to me is to send in the motherboard. of which.. Im reluctant to do so as I am wanting to exhaust all the possible remedies before committing to buying a motherboard for upwards of 300.00 usd. Will stay in touch as things develop. Good Luck

Hp compaq 6720s says pxe - e61


PXE is the boot option from a bootable network card, so basically the BIOS isn't seeing any of your bootable drives and going trying to PXE-boot off your network. Check the boot options in your BIOS and make sure your drives are detected by the BIOS. If they are not listed, then the drive has likely gone bad.

How t install windows xp on compaq laptops 104 108 tu


Have a bootable operating system disc. Make sure you have set your boot sequence in your bios: 1st-CD, 2nd-Floppy and last Harddisk drive. To go to your bios, when rebooting your system, press your Del key continuosly until it opens you to your bios menu. Save and exit after setting your boot sequence.

Pendrive


Try another pendrive and see if the same is working.
PLease make sure if your pendrive is USB 2.0 compliant.
If it came with an installation CD/CVD, install the same and try.

Bios password


is there not a jumper on the motherboard to reset bios? you could also try to remove the bios battery (a watch-type battery located directly on the motherboard)

you can flash bios most commonly by downloading the bios update to a floppy, and then booting with the floppy in the drive, but if you do it wrong, the end result will be a very expensive paperweight, hence flashing bios should be a last resort...
