I need more info to be able to help you.What operating system are you using? XP? VISTA? Windows 7?Do you see the windows startup screen? if not... I suggest you go to the CMOS setting, it seems that you lost your hard drive configuration, if you do not know how to do that, just go to the save menu and load the "Setup Default" or it maybe called just "Defaults, or CMOS Defaults, after that your computer should boot up. Make sure that the primary boot drive is your hard drive and not anything else.Tony
That error means that the Boot Manager is Missing. This is usualy caused by either a failed hard drive, or a failed attempt at recovery. If you try to do a recovery and then suddenly halt the process, weather on purpose or due to somthing like power failure, then the first bit of the Recovery boot process, the BTMNGR, can be hosed. If this happens then your only option is to order recovery disks from the manufacturer and install the OS that way. These disks will run you about $15-$30
You might boot into bios (F10 on startup) and do a hard drive self test first to make sure you dont have a hard drive problem...
If you have the original Vista DVD that came with your computer, try running startup repair on your computer using the instructions here:
If startup repair doesn't work, make sure you have not modified system files such as authui.dll. I happened to have the same problem once on my computer :)
Try running this command in command prompt using the Vista DVD...
Try to boot to F8 at startup if you see and boot menu you can restore the system or use last good known settings but you can only use last good known 1 time the results is what you seem to be talking aboutna cursor will be flashing indicating that the os has been wiped out or the drive is not functioning.if you have restore disk try to reinstall
It sounds like your PC isn't completing its POST. (pre operating system test)
This is usually caused by faulty hardware. Your best bet is to first remove anything you have recently installed. If that doesn't apply/work, try removing various hardware devices (CD/DVD drives, memory, USB devices) until you get the machine to boot up.
If even after removing every piece of hardware possible the machine still exhibits the same behavior, it is likely a problem with the motherboard (or other "permanent" hardware).
US has 110volt power outlet while other countries like Philippines have different power outlet outlet voltage of 220v. You cant use the same power adaptor that you use in the US but if you use a power regulator like a UPS device it wont have a problem
