SOURCE: will not boot to operating system or the bios. no

You probably have a bad power supply or one of your components is bad. I don't have enough info to point to anything specific, but here is some ideas you can try.
1) unplug all components internally but the power supply and check for bios beeps. Not the front panel wires though.
2) swap power supply or check with voltmeter for +5vdc, +12vdc, and -12vdc.
3) check for operation of fans attached to motherboard.
4) most likely suspects are motherboard, processor, or power supply.

SOURCE: dual boot error

In some cases this one solves the problem:

First, try to use PS2 keyboard type, maybe you are using a Usb keyboard that's why it wont work outside Windows mode.

Then if you are inside the Setup Menu sometimes called the "Bios Setup" try to look under the usb functions if it disable change it to enable, in this way all your usb device will work even if you are not in Windows Mode.

I have a gateway 500xl that the previous owner reformatted the harddrive wiping the xp operating system. I've upgraded the ram but without an op system I cannot turn the machine on. I need to install...


Hi there.

For this process you will need:
1) The hard drive you want the operating system on.
2) The operating system disk (Windows, Linux, etc, depending on your os choice)
3) A CD/DVD drive.

Firstly you will need to enter the BIOS on startup by pressing the Delete key repeatedly as your system starts up. In the BIOS you need to locate the boot disk priority section. You need to set priority 1 to your CD/DVD drive and priority 2 to the hard drive you wish to install the operating system to. Once this is done save changes to the BIOS and exit. Your system should now restart and on boot-up it should display a message "Insert bootable disk" or something like that. This is where you put in the operating systems install disk into your CD/DVD drive. Once it is in restart your system. Now your PC should boot up and ask you to press "Enter" to boot form the CD/DVD. Press enter to proceed. The setup should now begin, just follow the steps given by the setup wizard. Once the setup is finished and your PC reboots and on startup you get the same message about pressing "Enter" to begin setup just do nothing. Your PC should then switch automatically to your newly installed operating system and boot into it. Once your PC is fully booted into your operating system of choice remove the setup disk.

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.

No os dell optiplex gx100


Microsoft sells operating systems all day long. But, I assume you mean "operating system not found" that could mean that you have a corrupted boot sector, or that your BIOS settings are not set to boot the hard drive, OR that your hard drive is not recognized in the BIOS. First, I would test the hard drive, and next, I would try reinstalling the OS.

Dell Computer- Cannot find Cd-drive


Are you getting an error message saying "CD drive cannot be found"? If so, check the cable connected to your pc or swap that drive with a working cd drive.

Afterward, you have to enter the BIOS and change the BOOT order. Make the CD drive the first boot device and the HDD your second boot device. If the CD is a valid BOOTABLE Windows OS CD you will see the following option directly after the bios loads: "Press any key to boot from cd...."

Please remember that the OS CD only has the Windows Operating Software and will not provide you with the necessary drivers to run all the hardware on your PC. If it is not the original OS cd that came with your system don't even bother as you will have activate windows within 30 days and may not even allow you to enter the OS once installed until windows is activated.

The green or purple Dell CD's will boot on that system with no problem and it will not even ask you for the keys as it is a Dell OEM Windows OS CD. If you try an official Windows XP OS CD you must have the keys for it.

When i boot up im asked for hdd password,i dont know it,after three tries system is disabled


You can try clearing it in the BIOS.

When the machine boots up, and before the OS starts, you should be able to press DEL or F10 or whichever key allows you into the SETUP routine. Usually you see a message telling you which key to hit.

Look thru the BIOS settings for the one showing HDD password, and clear it.
