Sounds like your BIOS corrupted and you need to re-image.

Should have been a bootable floppy that came with the board. Boot on that and follow on screen instructions.

Don't have the floppy? Use the machine you used to post this problem and Google your brand, model number, drivers. Download the BIOS image routine from the site, run program you download, have a formatted blank floppy ready, insert floppy as instructed, follow on screen instructions, Re boot from floppy you just made.

That should fix you.

Install windows 95 from floppy


Microsoft Windows 95 employs the use of a bootable floppy disk to begin the installation of the Windows 95 operating system or to troubleshoot problems with the system. Microsoft Windows 95 uses the MS-DOS system to boot the computer first and then loads the Windows 95 operating system onto the machine. Windows 95 Boot Disks may be created in one of two ways: The Startup disk may be created from within Windows or a boot disk may be created from a free downloaded boot disk image. After the boot disk is created the disk may be used to boot the computer and install or troubleshoot Windows 95.

Click "Start" and then click "Settings" in Windows 95. Click the "Control Panel" option. Click "Add and Remove Programs." Click "Startup Disk" and then click "Create." Insert the blank floppy disk into the disk drive. Click "OK." The operating system will create the Windows 95 boot disk. Click "OK" when the disk is finished. Create the Windows 95 Boot Disk using Downloaded Boot Disk Image Open a Web browser and navigate to the boot disk image site (See "Below"). http://www.bootdisk.com/bootdisk.htm Download the Windows 95 boot disk image and save the .EXE file to the desktop. Click the .EXE file to unzip the enclosed files. The formatting application will start. Insert the blank floppy disk into the disk drive and click "OK." The Windows 95 boot image will be created on the blank floppy disk. Use the Windows 95 Boot Disk Insert the Windows 95 boot up disk into the computer's floppy disk drive. Power the computer down by clicking "Start" and then clicking "Shutdown." Power on the computer with the Windows 95 boot disk in the floppy disk drive. The computer will boot up into MS-DOS to enable installation or troubleshooting of Windows 95.

Tell me the bios password for fujitsu 7220NU5/B


You will not be able to clear the bios password.

You will need to generate an MSDOS boot Floppy Disk there are a number of sites online that can show you how to do this.

This disk should also have FDISK on it.

Insert the disk and start the PC, it should boot up from the floppy. Now run FDISK and clear all partitions on the Hard drive. DO NOT make new partitions.

Remove the floppy disk. Insert the boot CDROM and restart the PC.

as there is now no boot partion on the hard drive the system should boot from the third device the CDRom.

Continue to re- install the system as normal

Disk boot failure insert system disk


First if your computer has a floppy drive, check to a floppy drive does not have a floppy disk in this drive.
Your computer cannot find the hard disk to boot up.
Go to your BIOS to see if the BIOS detects the hard disk, if not remove the hard disk and re-connect it again and see if it boots up.
If it still does not boot up then most likely the hard drive has failed.
To get the computer working again, install a new hard drive, install Windows and the computer's device drivers and your programs.

''Platform signature not found in the interface'' BIOS HELP!


I remember a time when floppy disks were actually stable.

More than likely one or more things could be the cause of your headaches..

1) the floppy disk is flawed, or not properly formatted.
You can go to www.bootdisk.com and download a utility that will write a windows98 boot disk to your floppy.. this method writes per cycles, and checks that the write has been successful, once written, and booted into, you should be able to swap the floppy disk out for one with your flash utility, and bios file on it.

2) the floppy drive could be faulty. I have seen several drives claim to have formatted a disk, but infact had not because the read / write head in the drive had gone bad over the years.

3) There may be a memory problem on your system, faulty, yet funtional memory modules are all too common. When you boot from a floppy, most times they store the " dos " operating system in memory to save time from reading the floppy disk again and again.

Post problem


You could try a program like EZ-Flash to flash the bios without using a dos disk. Gigabyte should have some type of program on their website that would do the flashing without makeing a disk as most new computers do not have a floppy drive nor does Windows XP/Vista use dos. Hope this helps.

Won't boot


Under normal circumstances you do not need to boot into a drive to flash your BIOS. Normally you would take a dos boot floppy and the latest BIOS firmware and put them on a floppy, which is then inserted into the floppy drive before turning the computer on, and if the bios boot priority is set to boot from floppy before the harddrive, it will ask to boot from the floppy, which allows you to flash the bios from a command line or text graphical interface.

*Note that you may be able to use a cd, but floppy is the oldschool way - if you could boot into an operating system you could use the modern methods which flash the bios while running an OS.

Your board comes with Q-Flash in the BIOS, which means you are able to log into the bios and flash it using this utility and by putting the BIOS firmware on a floppy and inserting it into the computer.

Please see Here for instructions and Here for the latest firmware.

If you cannot access the BIOS, meaning the BIOS is completely bricked, then you will need to buy a new motherboard. Unfortunately there is no way to fix a BIOS which is completely bricked.

Acer Aspire 3610 laptop - Windows XP error


on a friend's Windows 98 SE or Windows ME computer, create a floppy "Startup disk". Insert in your pc floppy drive and turn on. If floppy drive was not accessed, then get to BIOS and ensure "Boot from floppy drive" is set prior to "boot from hard drive". Once at first screen, select "Boot with CD-ROM driver". Insert CD-ROM and initiate entire re-install of Windows. Windows may do some self-restarting. At first restart do this: get to BIOS and ensure "Boot from hard drive" is set prior to "boot from floppy drive".

System recovery


It sounds like the boot sector on your main hard drive is corrupted. You should have created an emergency boot disk when you first purchased the computer. Since you don't have the oroginals you should borrow a system CD from a friend and boot up that way and try to a recovery. Selecting F8 during the bootup sequence allows one to start if Safe mode, but I believe (I usually run Linux) you still need the boot sector on the main hard drive to be valid in order for this to work. The F1 gets you to the Bios screen (?) where you can select the boot sequence (hard drive, CD, or floppy first/second/third), among other things. Hopefully someone with more Windows experience than I can assistance better than I can, I just thought I'd throw that out there.
