SOURCE: at the startup menu i am getting a message that says, Reboot and Select Proper Boot Device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device."

Firt thing you can check is wthr your harddrive is detected or not. to do that you have to enter to the BIOS,To Enter BIOS you have to press DELET or F1 or F2 key(Mostly DELET). Now inside the BIOS in main menu check if your hard drive is showing or not. If it is showing there then you try to find out boot sequence, option after getting the boot sequence optuon check if the first device is other then hard drive.
if your harddrive is detected and your first boot device is also set to HARD drive then it might that your Operating system is Crash, in that case you need to re install the OS.
Now if you can see your hardrive in your BIOS then you can open the case( remember to unplug all the cable, Power, VGA, KEYboar ...etc) and try to inter change the harddrive cable connting cable, i mean just try to chage the port of the cable to other one and try switch on your computer ... if still you find the same problem then try changing new cable. ....well if still you have the same problem then i am afraid that you might need to replace the hard drive with new one.

Sorry for the Bad Englsih. Hope the above steps will work for you and you understood what i tried to say.
Cheers:)

Hi i go to load windows n it comes up corrupt n error code OxOOOO14c n wont let me do anything wont even let me load my recovery disc or windows support disc


You mean error Oxcoooo14c? That means your system registry is corrupt, or even missing.

You can try this; and how to get Recovery Media info is also included:

Download the ISO file at the supplied link, and make a Bootable Startup Repair Disk from it.

Go into your Bios/Setup, or Boot Menu, at startup, and change the Boot Order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the Boot Order, then reboot with the disk in the Drive.

At startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, to go into Bios/Setup, or F12 for the Boot Menu.

When you have changed that, insert that Bootable Disk you have made in the Drive, and reboot.

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/tutorial148.html

Above link shows what the process looks like, and a how-to, as it loads to the Repair Options.

Neosmart contains the contents of the Windows Vista DVD's "recovery center," as we've come to refer to it. It cannot be used to install or reinstall Windows Vista, and just serves as a Windows PE interface to recovering your PC. Technically, one could re-create this installation media with freely-downloadable media from Microsoft (namely the Microsoft WAIK kit, a multi-gigabyte download); but it's damn-decent of Microsoft to make this available to Windows' users who might not be capable of creating such a thing on their own.

Read all info at the website about creating and using it.

http://neosmart.net/blog/2008/windows-vista-recovery-disc-download/


ISO Burner: http://www.snapfiles.com/get/active-isoburner.html

It makes a very good Vista Startup Repair Disk.

You can do a Startup Repair, System Restore, etc from it.


It is NOT a reinstall disk.


And the 32bit is what comes normally on a computer, unless 64bits requested.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



How to obtain Vista recovery Media and/or use the Vista Recovery Partition on your computer to put it back to Factory Settings.

There is no legal free Vista download available.

Contact your Computer Manufacturer and ask them to send you a set of Vista Recovery disk/s.


They normally do that for a small $ cost.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Also, ask them if you have a Recovery Partition on your Computer/Laptop to restore it to Factory settings.
See if a Manual came with the computer, or go to the Manufacturer's website, email or phone them for info on how to do a Recovery.

Normally, you would press F10 or F11 at Startup to commence the Recovery Process..


Another way I have seen on some models is to tap F8, and go to a list of Startup options, and start a Factory Standards Recovery from in there, by selecting the Repair computer option.

Try the F8 Option to get into Safe Mode and try to do a System Restore:

http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/using-windows-vista-system-restore/
Do System Restore in Safe Mode, if unable to do it in Normal Mode.
Try tapping F8 at startup, and from the list of startup selections, select Safe Mode by using UP Arrow Key to go there > then hit Enter.

Try a System Restore once there, to pick a Restore Point before your problem..

Click Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore > pick a different time > Next > etc

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If that does not work > Try the Recovery disk to do a Startup Repair/System Restore > if that fails, reinstall Vista.

Some name brand computer comes with a partition recovery drive which allows you to do a factory restore, which in your case was with your "other computers" If there is a restore partition drive on your laptop you can see it when you first start up your computer and there should be a F-key option display posting you to do a restore. If you don't see this when you start your laptop, this mean that the laptop manufacture did not provide a partition restore space on your hardrive. They either had supplied a restore cd-rom disc when purchased or you have to create one yourself. In acer brand models, you have to create a restore disk yourself. In Hp which does own compaq, they do have this restore option during startup. My advice would be if you check your computer in the Os to see if there is a program that prompt to created a recovery disk, usually it is a compaq sofeware. if not you might need to contact compaq and request a recovery disk for a fee.

Also ask them if it is possible to make Recovery Disk/s from the Recovery Partition in case of Hard Drive failure or System Crash.

They will tell you how to do that.


Each Computer Manufacturer has their own way of making Recovery Disk/s.

Or borrow a proper Microsoft Vista DVD(not Dell, HP, etc).
A proper Vista DVD contains all Vista versions.
The Product Key determines which Vista version gets installed.

There are 2 Vista disks: one for 32bit Operating System, and one for 64bit Operating System.


If a clean install is required with a proper Vista DVD (not HP, Dell Recovery Disks):


Go into your Bios/Setup, or Boot Menu, at startup, and change the Boot Order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the Boot Order, then reboot with the disk in the Drive.


At startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, to go into Bios/Setup, or F12 for the Boot Menu

    The hard disk inside the computer had failed and must be replaced.
    Since your system had an recovery partition and not a separate recovery disk you must contact HP and order a separate recovery disk. If you have a friend with the exact model of c then you can use its disk, but only if its the EXACT same model.
     This is a very big problem - and at least a basic knowledge of hardware is required to replace the failed hard disk. And some software experience is also needed to reinstall.

    Hai,

    Thank you for providing details about the issue,
    This confirms that the operating system files are corrupted and the computer is not booting up. I understand that you do not have recovery back up on the computer, I request you to order the recovery cd or dvd from the brand vendor for free of cost or you could purchase the operating system and reinstall the operating system. Because we could not help you until we have the recovery partition on the hard drive or recovery cd.

    Hope you understand.
