Question about HP Compaq Presario V5000Z Notebook
I have some problems to startup my IBM intelliStation M Pro after trying to get BIOS and change it to start first the CD-Rom driver before the hard drive (C). Why? The reason is that I want to install UBURNTU by a CD. To get in BIOS (?), I pressed "Ctrl + A". Curiously, I found 15 devices, but only 2 are used. The device #2 which is used for (C) the hard drive and #7 the CD-Rom? (I suppose, not sure because I don't have knowledge of technical and computer). Others are written "no device". I check everything and went to everywhere I can move with the arrow (right, left, up, and down), I didn't find anything is said: "Hard Drive" and "CD-Rom" device. After all, I have changed nothing. When I took "exit", I was carefully about "yes and no", before pressing to any letter to "boot" the system as it is required.
After this, when I turn on my computer, I get this error message and it's said: "Hardware malfunction. Call your hardware vendor for support. *** The system has halted**
I tried several time from morning and evening to get start, but it didn't working. Currently, my monitor is dark likely it is not connected to the hard drive. The 3 lights (power, hard drive, and CD-Rom) of the destop are solid green, but the left one is flashing slowly. The power light of the monitor is orange, not green. Usually, when it's connected, it's green. So I don't know what to do. Could you help and tell me what to do, I will be very appreciate. Here are my questions:
1) How I can do to get start again my computer and connect again to my monitor?
2) How I do to get into BIOS and see Hard Drive and CD-ROM?
3) How to change my computer to startup at first the CD-ROM drive?
Doua Yang I get a hardware Malfunction blue screen also. I have to reboot ( sometimes 3-6 times) and then I can use. How do I fix this? Thanks.
Follow the link below for instruction on how to access and change boot orders in bios. I also have a section in my profile that has a couple tips that explain this also.
