SOURCE: Bios does not see cd-rom but dos does, can't boot cd

Sounds like a hardware issue. Try downloading UBUNTU as an alternative to Windows. If you still need windows Install virtual box for UBUNTU and run it that way.


Virtual Box: https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux_Downloads

You probably have tried holding "F12" during bootup. This will give you the option to start from the CD.

If you suspect it's a BIOS issue try flashing the BIOS. You can do this by going to the PC manufacturer website and searching for support- Drivers and downloads.

If your BIOS supports USB boot you can try to update the BIOS that way. Then going back and configuring it for CD boot.

You can also try to create an ISO image of Windows and install it via USB.

Well since you've done System Recovery which deletes all your data, why not just reinstall windows?

Run hard drive diagnostics: http://www.tacktech.com/display.cfm?ttid=287 (or http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic28744.html)
Make sure, you select tool, which is appropriate for the brand of your hard drive.
Depending on the program, itll create bootable floppy, or bootable CD.
If downloaded file is of .iso type, use ImgBurn: http://www.imgburn.com/ to burn .iso file to a CD (select "Write image file to disc" option), and make the CD bootable.


You could also try a Live Linux like Knoppix Live from here:- http://www.knoppix.net/get.php,
download the Free ISO using a Torrent, burn it to a CD then run that it will load into Ram and then ith all the software in the CD you can examine the hard drive


hope this helps

In the P S A M modes my shots have a moderate blue cast. This just started without reason. The manuakl was no help because it didn't even list the problem.


Check your white balance setting. In the point&shoot modes the camera sets the white balance automatically. In the PSAM modes you get to choose the white balance. Set it to Auto and see if that makes any difference. Set it to Cloudy or Shade and see if the pictures come out reddish or yellowish.

My hp pavilion dv6000 is stuck on configuration 3/3 0% and keeps shutting on n off


Turn off the computer, then turn it on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see the SAFE MODE Option. Select the Safe Mode option and see if your machine completes the boot cycle. If it does, do a normal shut down and restart. When it restarts, you want to let it try to boot back up as it normally does. It still might try to do the configuration stuff again, so be patient and let it do it. If it gets stuck and starts shutting off and on as before, turn it off again and boot back into safe mode again.

Once in safe mode click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore and select a date that is prior to the date when you first started having problems.

Don't worry,. System Restore does not delete any of your data, documents, music, pictures or videos. On the other hand, System Recovery DELETES EVERYTHING and sets your system back to how it was when you purchased it.

Cant get past blue hp invent screen


Sounds like you have corrupt or missing boot or system files. First try these steps.
1) Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see the SAFE MODE option. Take the Safe Mode option and see if you machine boots into safe mode. If it does safe mode look different, but that is normal, the icons are bigger and the screen is darker. Once in safe mode click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore. Once you are in system restore see if you can roll your system back to a date and time before you had the boot up problem. Don't worry, System Restore does not remove any of your documents, music, pics, videos or data. System Recovery removes everything and sets your computer back to when you first purchased it. Once the restore is complete reboot and see if your problem is solved. If not proceed to step 2.

2) You'll need a repair disc or system disc to get around it. If you have one insert it in the cd drive and boot from it. Get to the recovery screen where you can type in the black widow with the white writing the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or more so be patient. You will even see it going from high to low percentage of completion, but that's normal. When it finishes reboot and see if you're ok. If not you'll have to reinstall the operating system. Try doing a repair install whereas it looks to see if there is an already existing operating system on the computer and repairs it without losing any of your data, documents, music, pictures, videos etc. If you do a new install it will lose everything.

How do i fix error ofoo:0244 and ofoo:1a44 (msg block 16867582, 46028639 & 111595250), please? I get these codes when I start my pc


Hi,
I would suggest you first try the Start Up Repair for Windows XP.
1. Just insert the Windows XP installation CD that came with your computer then restart the computer.
2. You should get a prompt to start the computer from the CD drive, if not you need to enter BIOS settings to set the start/boot up mode so that your computer will boot up first from the CD.
3. When you see the blue screen, let the computer load everything and when it's done choose "To set up Windows XP now, press ENTER"4. Press F8 to agree to the License Agreement 5. Choose "To repair the selected Windows XP installation, press R"
Windows will then start the repair process. Do not worry all your data and settings will be retained.

If above solution does not work then,Use Recovery Console.
1. Just insert the Windows XP installation CD that came with your computer then restart the computer.2. You should get a prompt to start the computer from the CD drive, if not you need to enter BIOS settings to set the start/boot up mode so that your computer will boot up first from the CD.3. When you see the blue screen, let the computer load everything and when it's done press R to repair Windows XP using Recovery Console4. On the Recovery Console, choose the installation you would like to log on to (for example c:\Windows)5. Type Chkdsk /p /r on the Recovery Console and your computer will begin to check the hard drive for error and recover data.6. Once Chkdsk is completed, type exit then press Enter. Computer should restart. No need to boot from CD at this point. You can take out the Windows installation CD.

Hope this helps. Glad to be of service.

You can see if there is a recovery partition on you hard drive by pressing the F12 key as soon as you turn on your PC and select boot partition, if not, you will need to buy a set of recovery disks from the manufacturer, it will cost you around $30. If you have a Windows CD you can boot with it and install Windows and download all the device drivers from the manufacturer site. I hope this helps. Good luck and have a fantastic day.

Maybe you did set the PS3 to the wrong video mode, hold the power button till you hear 2 blips, this wil set the ps3 to recovery mode and you'll be able to set up the video mode and sound output, else try another cable, you also want to try your ps3 on another tv.

If this does'nt solve the problem try contacting Sony.

Kodak M340 lens extends then retracts immediately


I had the same problem after a day at the beach. What I did was get a can of compressed air (from the computer section) and blow air around the lens as I repeatedly turned it on. It took about five cycles, but I eventually cleared whatever was preventing the lens from fully opening.

Good luck.
