Try inserting your Windows CDROM at startup and look for press any key to boot from cd.
Wait 'til " Welcome to Setup" occurs and press R for repair.
Type Administrator password or just click enter after choosing
(most likely) 1. At windows prompt, type fixboot and after self
repair type exit.

The system is likely encountering a critical error and
theautomatically restart option has been selected in
the startup andrecovery options.
Right click on My Computer and select
Properties/Advanced Tab/Startup and
Recovery/Settings Button.

Under System Failure, uncheck the Automatically Restart
option. Thiswill allow the error to be displayed when
the problem is encountered.

You need to perform some troubleshooting steps to
try and locate exactly where the problem is coming
from.

Good Luck...Nate P.

Samsung RV515 how do you reboot a laptop?


Oh dear sounds like hard drive failure. When the computer cannot find instructions to load am operating system it asks for them. I think your computer hard disk is given up the ghost which I'd where it would normally load the boot information. The boot information is the operating system like Windows. There are ways to check the hard disk I do hope you had back ups though.

I dont have boot dissk for my asus f5r laptop what can i do it says reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key_


Your ASUS cannot find the hard drive to boot up.
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've read this problem due to new hardware interferences with desktop computers, all they had to do is change a few pins around on the harddrives.. since this is a laptop, and is quite difficult and dodgy to access the hardware, the only other suggestion is to reinstall windows with a recovery disk, or windows CD-ROM.

Hope this helps :)
