You hard drive is missing from the system. Just does not recognize it.

  • The obvious - Remove any USB devices like drives and any media from disc player. Its trying to load, but can't find bootable hard drive, CD, or USB...
  • Remove the hard drive and reseat (reconnect). Verify BIOS recognizes the drive. It must be listed! There is no going forward if it's not. Check boot order and make internal hard drive first. Save and restart.

How do I repair my 19in LCD monitor, it receives video signal, but goes black screen?


Connect the "bad" monitor to the VGA-out port on a notebook/laptop computer, to see if it works normally when connected. If not, then the monitor is "dead".
If it works fine, check the "screen-resolution" of the computer's video-card, to see if the values exceed the capability of the monitor.

My Acer laptop will not boot up.


You may have a corrupted video driver due to an update. For some Acers, press and hold F10 when starting the computer. Two beeps will mean that the bios settings have been restored and the machine may boot correctly. If you can enter the BIOS via F2, F1, F10, ESC or DEL, then find the area for display and change it to low resolution then save and restart your computer. Once running, you will need to uninstall the current video driver and have the computer install a new one.

try to set the BIOS to it's default setting,save & exit,restart your computer
if it still doesn't work,go to BIOS again and look for something called "boot device priority". it usually placed in advanced settings
then set your hardisk as your 1st boot device. save&exit,restart

Hp pavilion slimline s3600t desktop pc - Wont boot up, flashes to blue screen after hp blue screen and restarts. no option for safe mode either


A Blue Screen is more time than not indicative of a driver issue or some hardware issue. First of all when it boots to the screen that shows Safe Mode and the other options, scroll down and see if there is an option to Stop or Disable Automatic Restart on Boot. This will stop the screen from restarting itself when the blue screen appears and give you a chance to read and see what the error is. Afterwards it is ok to run Startup Repair. Startup Repair does not delete any of your personal files. Let startup repair run and then see if it boots. Once again, startup repair does not delete any of your music, documents, pictures, videos or programs. System Restore does not delete any of you documents, music, pictures, videos or programs. System Recovery WILL DELETE all of your music, pictures, videos, documents & any programs you've added since you brought the computer home from the store. System Recovery sets your computer back to the very first time you turned it on after you purchased it. I would run the startup repair, if that does not fix your problem, see if you can run a System Restore. A lot of time the Restore Points are damaged or missing when this happens, but give it a try and restore to a point before you started having the blue screen issue. If all fails you're going to need a system disc so that you can get into the Recovery Console so that you can enter a dos command in the little black box that opens up with white letters. You want to type: chkdsk /r
Let it run. It will run well over an hour and you will notice the percentage of completion going from high to low, but that's ok. Let it run to completion then try rebooting. If this doesn't work, you're going to need to take it to a repair shop or reload the operating system yourself.

Turn on acer laptop and it goes to black screen that says no bootable device


First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

I need to update my bios


Updating bios just for the sake of it is a dangerous practice. If your system is not having any problems then leave it alone. If you do have problems such as inability to recognize a larger harddrive or incompatibility with a particular newer piece of hardware such as NIC or modem etc, and the maker's website indicates a bios update is available to address the problem then you should consider the risks/benefits. If a bios flash goes wrong you can completely trash your motherboard.
If you still want to proceed with this exercise then start by downloading Everest Home Edition from lavalys.com. Instal and run it and it will give you info on your system components including motherboard model and bios version. Once you have that info you should carefully research bios updates from the motherboard manufacturer. Flashing the bios is done using a bootfloppy that has to contain both the flash utility and new bios file. If any power failure or surge or error occurrs during the flash process, you're toast. The motherboard may or may not have a jumper that needs to be moved to "Unprotect" the bios so that you can perform the flash.
You will also be given an opportunity to save a backup of the original bios. Do so. If the new bios doesn't work properly you should be able to re-flash back to the old version.
I repeat. Unless your system has a problem that can only be resolved by a bios update then DON'T DO IT.

Another solution

Determinine Your Current BIOS Version
You can find your motherboard's BIOS version number on the POST screen. Restart your computer. As soon as you see the Biostar bootup splash screen, press TAB, this will reveal the POST screen (if you don't see the splash screen at all, it is okay. The version of BIOS you have most likely doesn't have the splash screen). Then immediately press PAUSE/BREAK key to suspend the boot process. You will see a screen similar to the one below:
post_sml.jpg In this example, the BIOS version is VIT0312F.
VIT = Model number
0312 = BIOS date
F = No splash screen
three_bluedots.gif Updating BIOS
All modern Biostar motherboards feature the Flasher technology for easy BIOS updating. If you have a legacy board, please download the Award flashing utility and follow the instructions in the README.TXT file instead. The procedure below does not apply to legacy boards.
Most motherboards' BIOS files have the BIN extension. Some do not (for instance, NCD1208.BSP, NHA0302.BF, etc). Regardless of its extension, after downloading the BIOS file is ready to use as-is. You do not need to do any kind of decompression or extraction.

Download the BIOS file (in this case, VIT0312B.BIN) then save it to a floppy disk. Restart your computer. Enter the CMOS setup by pressing at the POST or Biostar splash screen. Make sure the disk is in your floppy drive, choose "Upgrade BIOS" from the CMOS Setup main menu. The Flasher utility will automatically detect and highlight the BIOS file (in this example, VIT0312B.BIN) on the next screen.

Make sure the BIOS file (in this case VIT0312B.BIN) is highlighted and press Enter. Answer Y when prompted "Are you sure to flash?". After the flashing is done, reset the computer and enter CMOS setup again. This time choose "Load Optimized Defaults" from the main menu. Finally, hit F10 to save and exit.

BIOS update is complete.

three_bluedots.gif Legacy Motherboards
If you have a legacy motherboard which does not support the Flasher technology, please download the Award BIOS flashing utility and follow the instructions in the README.TXT file.

Hi,

When the TOSHIBA splash screen is displayed or when you first turn on your computer, a boot menu prompt may be displayed for a few seconds near the bottom of the screen, indicating that a key (F2 or F12, for example) can be pressed to display a menu of boot options. The time allowed for detecting the keypress is very brief, so you'll need to be both prepared and quick.

On some models this prompt reads Press F12 for boot menu. On others, it may say Press C to boot from CD-ROM. On still others, there may be a row of colored icons representing the various boot devices (HDD, FDD, CD, LAN, PCMCIA, etc.) Press "F12" or "C" while these icons are displayed, and then use the arrow keys to move the cursor from one to another. As new models are released, the wording of these prompts may change.

Now if above steps works for you then it will start booting up from CD and then we have a shot to fix the problem you have with a simple command.

Once the computer boots up fine, go to the screen which says "Install Now". On this screen, look at the bottom left corner, you will see "repair your computer". Select this option & Choose your keyboard & language on next screen.

It will take you to the screen which will have 5 options:

Startup Repair: This option can repair the booting up problems automatically.

System restore: It startup repair doesn't works, Try this option to restore your computer to the day it was working.

Memory Optimizer: This is used to diagnose any problems with memory.

Complete PC restore: With this option, we can restore our computer to the factory settings. Performing this will result in loose of all data and software installed but it will bring everything back which you got preinstalled with your device.

Command prompt: In this option you can try some advanced command line instructions to fix the errors.

First let's try the best option "Command Prompt" to fix your problem:

>>Select "Command Prompt".

Type Bootrec /RebuildBcd, and then press ENTER.

  • If the Bootrec.exe tool runs successfully, it presents you with an installation path of a Windows directory. To add the entry to the BCD store, type Yes. A confirmation message appears that indicates the entry was added successfully.

Hi I have an Acer Travelmate 6492 first I wanted to reset it to factory settings I could not manage that & now it is not booting it's just flashing on top


Hi,
Seems like your hard disk is not getting detected.
Press the power button and hold it down for 20 seconds(without the battery or adapter plugged in to it). This process is called POWER DRAIN.
Start tapping the DEL key as soon as you power on the computer.
This will take you to the BIOS screen.
If it doesn't, you will have to check whether your hard disk is faulty with a local technician.

Once you get in to the BIOS screen, press F9 to load the default settings.
Than press F10 to save and exit.
Once you do this, the computer will restart.

Hope this helps.
