You may not install a working Hard driver from one compuyer to another unless every component is exactly the same. All windows OS look at the hard ware to stop a person from  moving an OS for one syastem to another. Reinstall the OS of you have the disk,or use a free OS or co to the website and get a reinstall disk if a name brand computer that came with an os.

540 wont boot up


The hard drive could be corrupt, this will cause the operating system to run the error checking. If you had a virus, and it infected any windows files, windows will check the files, but if it can\'t fix them, then it won;t run. You can try to enter safe mode, tapping F8 at boot, you should see a option to repair or restore. If not see if you can enter Safe Mode.

In safe mode you can go to start button, all programs, accessories, system tools, system restore.

You can also get a windows install disk, same version as you have, and put in the disk and hit F11, and boot from the disk, and run a repair from it.


You really should go to the website Avira, and download the rescue disk, burn it to a CD. This will run a virus scan of the hard drive before windows in DOS.
If there is a virus, it will kill it. But there is a chance it can\'t clean the virus and windows won\'t start.

The other option is to just erase the hard drive, not format, erase it with a program like Active kill disk. Then reinstall windows, all the drivers.

Hitting F8 key repeatedly will not access Safe Mode option for my HP D530


If you getting this error then you won't be able to open computer in safe mood, Because this error message indicate that there is no proper bootable media selected or there is no OS in your Hard drive.
First thing you can do is go to BIOS and check what is your First boot device selected, if it is other then Hard drive then change it Hard drive and save setting and come out of it.
If there is any media, like Pen drive or any CD then remove it and start your computer.
If still you have same problem then I am afraid that your OS is Corrupted.

Disk boot failure on compaq presario S7300CL


Hi friend,

The message, "Disk boot failure" often means that the OS is corrupt and needs to be re installed. Try restarting the computer twice or thrice and check whether you can log in to the system. If the same error displays again then you have to re install the OS. But re installing the OS leads to data loss from the hard disk. So at such kind of situations you need a data recovery software to recover your data back. Yodot Hard Drive Recovery is a wonderful data recovery software which performs recovery after disk boot failure.

My laptop wont start up, It says "system disc or non system disc error, replace and press any key.." why? :(


you have it set to boot from cd so when you startup the computer it attempts to read the cd and than boot an operating system for you either remove the disk or enter your bios menu and set your boot order to negate the cd drive

When compuetr starts no boot device available but BIOS seen


If there is no HDD or any other boot device the BIOS will always be present. This problem occurs if you haven't installed any Operating System on the HDD. So when the computer is booting it finds no booting device files and that's why showing error message. Format your HDD and install OS to boot smoothly. But if you have HDD with OS still this error happening then it might be a reason of corrupt system files which are required during booting or it may be the case that your HDD is damaged and cannot boot from there. If your HDD is damaged and still showing on the BIOS it may happen because it is detecting as a device but the as the device is damaged is cannot boot from it. Check these steps to solve your issue.

Hi i am tryning to load an operating system onto my brand new hard drive. It keeps coming up with disk boot failure, insert system disk and press enter.. what do ido


Hi, By brand new harddrive, I assume that its fresh and empty.
You need to install the Operating System (OS) in that harddrive.
You can do that my inserting the OS installation CD/ DVD into the drive before you bootup.
If you still get the error, get into the setup mode and change the boot sequence to boot from CD-ROM first.
Hope it helps :)

Hard Drive


Yes this hard drive should work with your system. all you should take into consideration is whether the inputs and such are the same and if all the other components in your system will support the newly added part.
