Not booting up


First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

How do u fix a laptop when it is not finding the harddrive


It looks like you have a hard drive issue try on boot up pressing F2 into BIOS it should recognize it there if it doesn't I'm afraid you will have to take it to a trusted repair shop, sound like your hard drive is possibly defect

When you turn on your computer, the BIOS does several things. This is its usual sequence:
  1. Check the CMOS Setup for custom settings
  2. Load the interrupt handlers and device drivers
  3. Initialize registers and power management
  4. Perform the power-on self-test (POST)
  5. Display system settings
  6. Determine which devices are boot able
  7. Initiate the bootstrap sequence computer254_3.jpg
  8. Is this the screen that your are getting on start up
  9. Look at the following example of a BIOS sreen after pressing F2
  10. computer254_4.jpg
  11. Hope this helps you further diagnose your problem

NEED WIZ"S HELP- CANT BOOT XP OR VISTA CD FROM DVD DRIVE


Hello,

I'll give a whack at this problem. I think the previous person meant blank drive NOT black drive (that doesn't make sense to me).
I would follow the previous persons in going to BIOS and making sure the first boot device is CDROM. My question to you is whether you've already done this or whether you need assistance with this process. If so, please tell me what computer model you have.

NEED WIZ HELP- UNABLE TO BOOT FROM XP OR VISTA FROM DVD DRIVE


first you must check your XP/Vista cd if it is bootable then open the bios setting change the first boot to CD ROM save and exit the bios insert CD wait for a second if the CD is BOOTABLE if so then follow the instructions of formating drive. But before you do that you must be sure that you have all the driver need to you PC for security you must use the black drive then install the XP OS.

Getting ERROR FOR OPERATING SYSTEM


This is because you have to change the boot sequence in the BIOS or setup of the motherboard. When you first turn on the computer you can see something like press DEL to enter Setup or F12 or F10 or F2 depending onyour motherboard. once you get into setup you will see either boot sequence or boot order. Set the CDROM as the first boot device. Then when you startup the computer again you will see PRESS ANY KEY TO BOOT FROM CD. proceed with pressing anything on the keyboard.

I cant install vista OS on this MBD , by sata HDD


You must enter setup at boot and select the CD/DVD as first boot. Then ensure that the BIOS settings have SATA enabled. When CD/DVD is first boot watch the screen for 'press any key to boot from cd' message is displayed. The boot screen will say how to enter setup. Typical buttons are F2, Delete, F1, F10 -you did not say which manufacturer. OEM trumps mobo maker with BIOS setup.

IBM Mainboard MS6188 on Net Vista IBM PC Systemes ??


Your machine is a Netvista 6280 or similar. Several models used that MSI motherboard. Go to http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-4RZ2LT

IBM's latest BIOS and all other 6280 drivers are listed.

The MS6188 motherboard uses an Intel 810 chipset, you should not have any drive size problems, at least up to 30 GB, that could not be overcome by partioning the drive.

Good luck.

This issue showed that the harddrive is not found. Try to fixed hardware connecting from harddrive and the board.
did you see hard drive detected in the bios at start? if your are sure that the connection cable is firmly fixed and the hard drive still not detected by the bios. so there is a problem with your harddrive. you should/may replace that.On the other hand if in case your hard drive is detected and still thesame problem encountered. then, you should reinstall your operating system by inserting the original operating system recovery/ windows bootable installation disc to refresh the state of your system.

any problem srising this solution please notify me.
