I wast just about to go on the mother inlaw's computer when it flashed up a message saying something along the line the lines of boot system faliure and stays on that message untill you reboot and then it does the same again.
I entered a windows XP disc to re install (this is what i was about to do before the problem showed up) It runs from the disc after going into the BIOS asnd begins to install the OS it goes through the windows setup system and after selecting formatt and re-partition it goes through the formatting section and file copying section perfect it then mentions something about setup will now reboot you pc and continue afterwards if there is anything in drive A please eject. it then reboots the system and then goes on to re install the OS. the only problem is it seems like it has forgotten you have already done the first part as it trys to prompt you to repair, format and reinstall OS
ANY IDEAS WELCOME. I know enough to get me by but this is the 2nd time i have formatted a pc and re installed an OS. the 1st with any problems!!!

Re: boot system failure!
You need to start from the hard drive, or from hard drive with CD support. You can change the boot device priority in BIOS /change it so that the optical drive is not first but the drive you installed the OS is/, or in some boards there's the option to choose boot device. In case of a Gigabyte mobo it would be F12, that would bring a device list and after choosing your hdd the install would continue.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Your BIOS settings may be wrong, or there may be a problem with the motherboard of the system.
I would check the BIOS settings on the laptop first.
When you first turn on the laptop - you might see something that says something like "Press F2 to enter Setup" or "Press Del to enter Bios" or "Press F1 to enter Setup" - or something along those lines. You will want to hit whichever key it is specifying and try to get into the BIOS/Setup.
Once you are in the BIOS, look for an option to restore defaults or reset factory settings. Do that and then save the changes and restart the computer.
If resetting the BIOS doesn't help, make sure that when you turn the computer on you are not plugged into a network cable at all.
If the system still gives the PXE error - then it is likely that something has gone wrong with your laptop motherboard. Unfortunately to get that fixed - you'll need to take it to a computer repair shop.
I hope that you can get the BIOS reset and it works for you though!
The best way to fix this is to insert the Windows Vista DVD that originally came with the computer. After you have the disc in, restart the computer and you should be prompted to "Press Any Key To Boot From Disc" or something along those lines...
Once you do that you will be given the option to repair Windows Vista. It will automatically scan the computer and fix any issues.
If you have a specific error message or have any trouble doing this, please let me know and I will be more then happy to further assist you!
Sounds like you bought your new hard drive clean with no . You simply need to put in a boot disc, such as a windows XP installation disc for example, and go through and install the operating system. Look through your CDs you got with your laptop to find a disc with a windows operating system on it, for example Windows XP Home. It may say 'press any key to boot from disc...' along the line so just press any key and you will be on your way to setting up your new system
Hi, The compute post tests the computer, insuring that it meets the necessary system requirements and that all hardware working properly before starting the remainder of the boot process. 1 Short Beep, Normal POST, computer is okay. No problem. 2 Short Beep, POST error....floppy drive 0 error and keyboard error........This can happen because there is something wrong with your floppy drive, something is causing your computer not to detect it or that you simply don't have one. Check your floppy cables and connections first to ensure that they are
connected properly, if they are then you may have a burned out
controller on your motherboard, a bad floppy cable or drive, or your
motherboard may be faulty. If you don't have one you can disable the
message in your computers BIOS. To get to the BIOS screen, during boot
up at the bottom of the screen it will say something like "press F2 for
setup" or something along those lines. That will take you to the BIOS
screen. In the settings there should be options like first boot device,
second boot device, and so on... change the one that say 3.5 floppy to
something else such as your CD rom.That will get rid of that message.
Keyboard error or no keyboard present shows up when your computer can't find your keyboard or there is something wrong with it. Replace with new keyboard. Thank you
