Bootconfig might be bad for windows not to start. Or could be a hard drive problem. Windows startup repair might work or you might have to reinstall the operating system. If this does not work then possible the hard drive has problems.

SOURCE: computer won't boot into windows

The event of you inserting a DVD is unlikely to have anything to do with this problem. Probably just a coincidence that it happened after you did so. Hard drives die eventually and more frequently so in laptops.  I'm afraid you will have to bite the bullet and replace the hard drive.

SOURCE: Machine will not boot.. Black

In this case you need to repair your OS. You need to insert the OS which is a bootable disk, in case of net book you need to connect a USB with OS loaded in it and select boot from USB in bios, for entering in bios you need to press the F 2 button while restarting the computer.

Getting error nvidia boot agent 249.0542


It seems the Basic Input Output System (BIOS) settings have been changed on this computer.

This type of error message occurs when the computer is trying to seek a network device to boot from, or is set to boot from a removable disc or other media that have bootable files stored on them that the BIOS requires prompting or selection for in order to proceed to the boot stage.

First check that there is no disc in the Optical (CD/DVD) Drive -> if there is remove it -> restart the computer by pressing and holding down the Control (Ctrl) and Alternate Value (Alt) keys 2 fingers of your left hand -> press the Delete (Del) key with your right hand -> release all 3 keys -> tap either the Del or the Function 2 (F2) key 2-3 times as the first white writing appears on the black background of the screen after powering up -> the (Power On Self Test (POST) procedure will then redirect to BIOS Settings (often referred to as Setup) -> use the keyboard arrows to navigate to Set Default Values -> press the F10 key -> press y for yes or Enter for OK -> test the boot process again.

If the computer still does not boot properly repeat the above steps to enter the BIOS Settings/Setup again -> use the keyboard arrows to navigate to Boot Menu -> arrow down to Boot Device Order -> look at the BIOS Control Options at the bottom or side of the window to find the appropriate control keys for changing the order of the boot devices (often the + and - keys, the F5 and F6 keys, the Page Up [PgUp] or Page Down [PgDn] keys -> move/promote the Hard Disk Drive (HDD) to the First Boot Device position -> press F10 -> y for yes or press Enter for OK -> test the boot process again.

Mainboard GA-G31-ES2C Warning: Backup BIOS checksum error BIOS Auto-Recovering...


If you have reset the CMOS memory you need to go into the BIOS setup screen and reconfigure the BIOS. To do that you need to press a key while the computer is booting. Usually F2 but can be other keys. It should tell you on the bottom of the first screen which key to press to enter BIOS setup.
If you don't know the settings the should be one for optimal defaults - use that one. You will also need to reset the time and date.
Save, Exit and re-boot and everything should then work.
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press delete to enter setup

My computer won't turn on properly. It keeps saying disk error press control alt delete. When I do it just says it again and again. It won't load and turn on.


First you should check if there is any disk on your cd room, if there is any disk you should remove the disk from the cd room, if there is no disk the possibility is your hard drive getting error
Press f2 or delete to enter your bios set up system
Look for boot menu
Set the first boot as a HDD and the second boot as cd room and disable the third boot
Save and Exit the setting
if your computer still won't load you need to reinstall your windows
insert windows cd and go to set up again by pressing f2 or delete button
Set the first boot as cd room then the second boot as HDD
Save and exit the setting again
When the message press any key to boot from cd appears you should press the space bar or another key
Then just follow the instruction of formatting

When I restart with the boot disk I made (or the intstallation disk) the computer starts up normally. I am not being prompted to scrub it. Help!


you need to change the boot order of the computer to boot from cd instead of hard drive.

When you first start up the computer you should see a message to press to enter setup the most common keys are:
  • Delete
  • F1
  • F2
  • F3
  • F5
  • F10
  • Escape
  • Insert
  • Control + Escape
  • Alt + Escape
  • Control + Alt + Escape
  • Control + Alt + Enter
Once you've entered setup you should be able to find a selection something to the effect of boot order chage the fist boot selection or primary boot device to the CD rom so that the computer will boot from the boot disk instead of the hard drive

Hi, I need to access the BIOS to boot from CD pear. I pressed F12 and ESC, and Ctrl-F1, alt-F1. It does not work. How I can access the CD to recover the BOOT? Thanks, Nacho


Hello,

Have you tried pressing DELETE? Press the delete button and it will direct you to BIOS. You can then change the boot sequence of your computer so that you can boot to the cd.

Thank you for using fixya,

I have a Dell Latitude e5500. when booting the computer the Dell start up screen appears and then is replaced by a black screen with a blinking cursor. I have tried pressing control+alt+delete; this...


You have errors in the boot section, not allowing any of the GUI's to run.
When the system starts press F8 and when you get the menu select Recovery.
That will fix it.
