It gets an error # 5 when I try to boot from the Win 7 install DVD. I tried to update the Bios but it still won't read my "install DVD". Need any help you can offer.

SOURCE: Bios update failed *flash*

You are in deep trouble

A problem with refreshing the Bios is that you can corrupt the old one and then the new one does not load leaving you stuck in limbo land

I would contact Acer support and hope that they offer a pre-programmed Bios chip to replace your corrupt one.

SOURCE: trying to boot and change bios start up for compaq d530 sff

Unplug the case from the power, open the cover and try to locate on the motherboard a small round battery (a little bigger that the one at the electronic watches) TAKE CARE THAT THE TOWER IS UNPLUGGED FROM THE MAINS. Very carefully remove the batery and wait 1-2 minutes. After that insert the battery back, close the case, plug the tower and start the pc. It will boot at the default bios settings, without passwords but you have to make the settings again (date, boot order e.t.c.)
In case of a problem post back.

Stelios.

HP nc6230 freezes shen loading Windows XP Pro


Try booting from your Optical Drive. First insert your Windows XP Pro CD into the drive. Do not re-install the operqating system or you will lose all your files and programs! When prompted press 'R' to use the Recovery Console. You should be able to write a new boot sector to your hard drive.

If this doesn't solve the problem, you might need to re-install the operating system. If you can find a way to save all your files from your drive (perhaps by putting your drive in an external USB caddy and viewing its contents on a different computer).

If all else fails get a new hard drive and start again with your WIndows XP Pro CD. Use an external 2.5" USB caddy afterwards to get your documents and files back off your old disk. You will need to re-install your programs, though. If your disk is Service Pack 3 you should be able to get straight back on the internet via a wireless connection to update all your drivers from hp's website.

Toshiba portege m100. lost windows xp. how do I clean install windows. no cd drive only usb ports. will not boot pxe.tried windows on formated flash drive, still no result.


Making a bootable flash drive involves a few tricks. I have had much better success using a utility to do the setup on those. Doing it manually works but not all the time.

I'd beg borrow or buy a usb dvd drive and boot off the install cd if nothing else. These have really dropped in price and are handy to have around.

I'm assuming you have set the bios to boot from the flash drive before it hits the hard drive? You would also have to set it to hit the usb dvd drive prior to the hd as well if you go that way.

When you get it booted it will ask if you want to format the drive before installing. You can also just pick a new directory to put windows in as well.

Don't forget to download all the drivers from Toshiba. You will need system info, video, and a network at the very least to get running and able to download the rest. These are very handy on a flash drive to plug in when you get xp started.

Hi.

Yes it is possible to fix the netbook. All you need to do is reinstall the operating system. You will have to get hold of an external DVD/CD drive or install Windows through a USB drive.

With a DVD/CD drive all you need is the XP installation CD. Connect the drive to the power outlet and then plug the USB lead to the computer. turn the netbook on and hit the F12 key or the key it tells you for "Boot Options". Select the "USB CD-ROM" device and follow the on-screen instructions to reinstall the operating system.
If you haven't got an XP installation CD then you'll have to purchase one.

You can also install XP from a USB flash drive. Click on the link I have provided below for an in-depth explanation for how to install Windows XP from a USB flash drive>>>



http://komku.blogspot.com/2008/11/install-windows-xp-using-usb-flash-disk.html




If you decide to install using the USB flash drive then to get the system to boot from the USB flash drive just follow the same instructions for the DVD/CD drive.



Hope this helps and please post back if there is anything else.



Regards.
