Hi, I have a Gateway GP6-566C SE. I am trying to have it read a bootable CD but it doesn't seem to recognize the CD on a bootup. Looking at the bios I can see that the CD is supposed to check the CD...


Most desktops will check the floppy drive when starting up anyway regardless of what setting is in the bios, try to look for any commands required for boot selection when you boot up...I have to hit TAB while booting up to select to boot from CD.

Let me know how you get on

D530 HAS ERROR AT STARTUP. WRONG DISK


Reboot, start tapping the F8 key when the boot screen first appears, then select safe mode. If you can start in safe mode, go to My Computer/r-click on the C: drive and select Properties from the menu, then select the tools tab, then click the check now button under Error-Checking. Provided you have been able to get that far, after you check for errors, then do a defrag of your hard drive while still in safe mode.

My computer monitor was disabled so now it is black is there any way to reset it or enable the monitor?


Alyssa,
Two ways:
1. Power On the computer and get into the BIOS settings screen. The monitor will turn ON and allow you to view the menus. Select the integrated peripherals menu and set the "use internal vga" ON.

2. If your computer has a add-on video card, unplug the monitor cable from the internal monitor interface and connect it to the add-on video interface.

Computer will not boot up.


Boot up your Windows XP on your drive.
Since you have been on that process I assume that you already know those things prior to this solution. I'll just continue the subject after it load all the drivers.

Solution:
1) After you get the "MENU" screen that has a selection of
  • Install XP press "Enter"
  • Press "R" to repair
  • Press "F3" to quit
Select to "Install XP"
2)After you will get a End User License Agreement (EULA), then Press "F8" to accept
3) Then another menu that was stated above. Then this is the time you select the REPAIR option

If you find this Solution helpful please Rank me.

Thank you.

regards,

Monitor won't stay on. Error message comes up that says "no input signal", then monitor goes out.


Problem with the monitor, monitor cable, or video output. For monitor, if you have more than one input, make sure it's set to the correct one. Try a different cable. Try a different monitor. Check your video card settings--if you see the BIOS bootup screen while it's coming up then the Windows splash screen, then monitor blanks out, it's a Windows display setting. Boot into safe mode, then change settings--
  • Turn the computer on or Restart the computer
  • Start tapping the F8 key. The Windows Advanced Boot Options Menu appears. If you begin tapping the F8 key too soon, some computers display a "keyboard error" message. To resolve this, restart the computer and try again.
  • Ensure that the Safe mode option is selected (the top option)
  • Press Enter. The computer then begins to start in Safe mode.
  • When you are finished with troubleshooting, close all programs and restart the computer as you normally would.

How to hide or eliminate boot selection on Acer Veriton s460...there wasn't any security selection in the computer BIOS?? thanks


Login to window,,

Go to start --> Run --> type there msconfig

this will open a window, now inthat go to Boot Tab

And check if the two option given, if you have multiboot operating system (Viz Win 2000 and other one Win Xp)

Then it will show you each time during bootup (you can only setup one as default)

You also can setup the time for it to take in bootup.

Let me know if you need further help
