    Do you hear the POST BEEP or any beeps at startup?

    Do you hear the HDD spool up?

    If you tap F8 as you boot, will it take you to safe mode?
    Please let me know.

The system is telling you it can't find anything to boot from. In this case, it is probably the hard drive. As a bit of troubleshooting, open your case and check to make sure no wires have come off the hard drive or board. Do you have a boot disk you can check as well? If you do, put that in the cd/dvd drive to see if it will attempt to boot from that (although you won't be able to do much else if it can't find a hard drive to write to). While it's open, do you happen to have another hard drive laying around that works and you could swap it out to see if the one in there now is no good? Let me know what you come up with.

How do you run CHKDSK /F with the blue screen stop error on my desktop?

You MUST have a boot device like CD, DVD, or USB. Use the install disc to access command prompt, by choosing the repair option. You could also download and burn a boot CD like Hirens.

The other option is to remove the drive and attach it as a slave or USB to another computer.

I just install my HP printer On lenovo tower and I'm having trouble starting my computer how can I fixed?

Your lenovo will be set to boot from USB as an option, you need to disable boot from USB in the bios to stop it locking up on boot as it thinks the printer is a boot device and is waiting for a signal from it to boot.

Cannot get computer started. Keeps asking for Boot media device

There are quite a few possibilities over here.
  1. the boot device might have got changed from harddisk to some other.
  2. the boot sector of the computer might have gone bad and needs repair.
Solution for the first one:
Try getting into the boot sector of the computer and change the boot order to Harddisk as first boot device and then CD ROM and then Floppy drive (if you have)

Solution for second one:
If its a Vista/Win7, then try starting the computer into the advanced boot menu.. then select Startup Repair.

Do you have anything in your usb port that may be considered a storage device? If so, push F12 while you are booting and choose the hard drive as the 1st boot device on the list.

Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media

its basically telling you that your master hard drive with O/S installation cannot be found in the booting system...Check if your master HD is not corrupted and see if your O/S still exist or maybe wiped out..

My toshiba p105 with windows xp won't boot and i want to reformat it. I have the bootable disc but when I use the c key to boot from it, nothing happens and the usual message I have been getting, We are...

What you want to do in this matter is, go into the BIOS if you haven't done that already, and change the boot device priority to CD. You want to do the following right when you startup the computer, and without the CD in the drive. BIOS/Setup Utility, can usually be found be pressing the delete key at startup, or the F12 key at startup, so push one of those two keys a few times to get to the BIOS utility. The setting to change the boot order of devices is usually one of the menu options at the top of the screen, closer to the right side. Once you find how to change the boot order, change the first device that the computer boots to to the CD you've got, insert your CD, save the BIOS settings and exit, and you should be set to go.
