Press the F2, and laptop will go to the bios where you will be able to change the boot order from the hard drive to the optical drive.

    When in the bios screen, go to "boot" and highlight the optical drive. Press F6, and the optical drive should move to the first boot position.

    None of these. If that is all the bios is recognizing, then you either have a bad cd/dvd, or it is not completely seated into the socked. I would guess that it is a bad one, and they are very inexpensive to replace. Only one screw holds it in, and a replacement dvd/rw is about $25 us.

"error loading operating system" message on dell inspiron 1420 laptop


only way to bypass this is use a recovery disk to boot from and then perhaps the issue will manifest itself

otherwise, it's the dreaded re format step

Tip

Change your boot order in bios


Whenever the computer shows an error like "No operating system found" Or "no boot device found" the fix could be simple. If not a fix it definitely narrows the problem down. All you have to do is go into bios and change the order of the devices your computer tries to boot from.

Most computers have three boot devices.

1- CD-Rom
2- U.S.B. thumb drive or network drive
3- Hard drive

To change these and many other things is quite simple. There are special keystrokes to access bios. To find out which one applies to you watch your computer screen when you first boot your computer. The first logo or name you see (normally) is your bios. It will say Phoenix, Or Intel or something along those lines. After that when the computer first starts to boot you have to press the required keys and then the bios screen loads.

I have to stress one issue. We get a lot of questions here on Fixya about how to change the bios password. This cannot be done here. So
PLEASE DO NOT SET A BIOS PASSWORD!

If you forget this password you cannot load your computer. You will have to take it apart and reset it manually If possible.

For the directions and on screen pictures about settings in bios follow the link below. Remember, this is a VERY tempermental part of your computer. If you don't feel comfortable making changes in here don't change anything until you ask someone and you are sure about the results.

I happens to me like that the when you load the operating system installer CD it does not load or when loading the set up, some files are missing or cannot be copy because of the CD lens problem. Too many scatches or not good copy of operating system.

Acer 1360 black screen cant get start menu


If you are getting a Blue screen repeatedly and you can't start up to windows in any custom setting ( from f8 start up menu ) one way to solve the problem is to Use the restore disc or windows installation cd or dvd to install windows into the computer or perform a repair installation if a windows already exists on the computer and the setup can find it.

how to perform a repair installation

this is for xp, but its similar on 2000 and on vista.

insert your Windows XP Setup CD, and restart your computer.

1.When the Press any key to boot from CD message is displayed on your screen, press a key to start your computer from the Windows XP CD.

if not then the computer is not set to start up from a cd, you can either enter the setup / bios to change that setting OR right when you power up the computer look at the screen it will say what button to press in order to enter boot menu or bios, it will very likely be button F12 or similar, it should say on the screen when you power on.

if it doesn't, then you need to go into the bios and change the boot order so that the computer starts from the CD first.

after that you should be able to start from the cd and install the OS (Operating system, eg.Windows)

here's some info on how to work the bios: http://www.whitecanyon.com/how-to-change-boot-order.php


Repeat step 1 when you have changed the boot order.

2.Press ENTER when you see the message To setup Windows XP now, and then press ENTER displayed on the Welcome to Setup screen.

3.Do not choose the option to press R to use the Recovery Console.

4.In the Windows XP Licensing Agreement, press F8 to agree to the license agreement.

5.Make sure that your current installation of Windows XP is selected in the box, and then press R to repair Windows XP.

6.Follow the instructions on the screen to complete Setup.

7.Ones windows is working you will need the drivers for your computer, they are at the makers website, for hp and compaq. www.hp.com for acer http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/downloads.html for all other brands go to google and write Brand drivers. Should get you to the right place. Dell is most likely www.dell.com and so on.
