    Do you have the operating system disk? not having the disks is going to rliminate that alternative.

You only need the OS disk, then select boot from dvd burner under boot options in the Bios, and it will walk you through a re install of windows

Where can I purchase a system disc for a Asus m2n Sli motherboard having an award Boot Block V1.o Bios?


If the computer is asking for a system disc, then what it is really saying is that it cannot find the Operating System. This usually means that one a a few things:

1. The BIOS is not set to select the internal hard drive as the boot device. This can change by accident or if the BIOS gets corrupted.

2. The OS itself is corrupted and cannot boot.

3. The HDD (hard drive) has failed.

When you say you need a "system disk", what you really need is to reload the Operating System. You can get Windows from many sources. Then you only need the drivers that are specific to the main board you have. These can be downloaded for free from the ASUS website. Just go to support, downloads, select you main board model and revision, and download the drivers for your particular Operating System. Of course, if the problem is hardware related, simply getting a new OS will not completely solve the problem. A BIOS corruption would be the worst possible issue since that would require a reflash of the BIOS, and hopefully it would be in good enough condition to perform one without crashing completely. The simplest problem would be if the BIOS was simply not looking at the hard drive as a boot device. Go into the BIOS and ensure that the internal hard drive is selected as the first boot device. If not, make it such and then save and reboot to see if the problem is solved. Otherwise, you need to ensure that the hard drive itself is not faulty. If it is ok, then a new OS and reloading of the drivers and other programs is necessary.

Back up what you can and buy a replacement. More info is needed if you want to know which one will fit.

You are in deep doo doo. Since most ladies are neat, I am sure that your restore disks are in prime condition and replacing them with a new set from Sony will be expensive and not do the trick. Either something is terribly corrupt with the software on the drive or there could possibly be something wrong with the hard drive that prevents it to restore or reload. If you have a spare, known working, hard drive kicking around try using the restore disks with that and see if it works. I caution you that many restore softwares are designed to only work with the original, same size hard drive (that sucks for obvious reasons). If it works you definitely have a HD issue. If it does not, you might still have a hard drive issue because the software was not designed to restore a different hard drive. So then you have to do a diagnostics test on your drive to check it out. If the drive proves to be bogus you can replace it with the exact same model and hope that the software does the trick. If not you will have to do a clean install of the OS and all of your programs.

Hp iq524 touchsmart recovery cds will not load windows on new hard drive


Try deleting the partitions. You can use any Windows install disc to accomplish this if the HP won't.

For manual deletion you need is fdisk.exe and possibly format.com and at the command prompt.

I have an older dell computer and teh hard disk is


No the O.S. will not still be n the system. You will have to reload it. If you have the original disk, that is. Also take ALL of the pertinent info. you want and load to a disk. Such as, pictures, documents, all downloads you have put in the system including the setup. If you don't know how,email me and I can help. Otherwise,insert a blank C.D.,wait for auto play, select the programs, and or pic. or doc.s. right click and choose send to unless you have the option of "burn to" then use that one. I hoped this helps.

I have a HP Evo Intel Pentium 4 destop oc, xp pro (dc5000). it crashed and when we went to reload the OS and drivers, we lost most of the drivers and applications. I can boot it up but it will not go...


Since you have an HP, you can order a replacement set of "System Restore" disks from HP, for less than $20 -- much less than buying a "retail" copy of Windows. That set of CDs will have the correct drivers and the same "factory-installed" applications.

Software disc


You need your original installation disc(s), or start up the machine and hold down the f8 key and then, 1st boot on the last known good.
2nd, reboot holding down the f8 key and then try the restore method. Most machines have a 4 to 10 gig partitioned on the C drive which holds your restore partition. Else, if you have the orginal OS disc, put it in your cd reader, it will come up with the start up screen for installation. when you get to the install window say OK, then when the window comes up you should have a choice of intalling new or repairing the hard drive ... repair the hard is the correct choice. This should work if there isn't a hard drive problem, or your hit with a virus, or that the hard drive has a bad boot mbr.
