Computer was trying to boot but had no operating system. I installed windows to hd on another pc. put hd in the acer and now it wont boot. It acts like its on protect mode. How do I boot?


The OS will only work in the machine it was installed on. With the correct OS in the correct machine, examine the hdd that won't boot and check the drive has a drive letter assigned to it. If it hasn't, that is a reason why it won't boot.

Dell xps 710 motherboard replaced with 700 motherboard but it does not boot


This could be any number of problems. First start with hardware. Is everything seated and connected correctly? Are the hard drives installed correctly. Are the power on pins on the board set correctly or pinned at all? Is the ram the correct ram?

Check the hard drives, are they functional, do they boot with other computers?

Use a volt meter and check that the power supply is producing the correct voltages on all the connectors and rails.

If that all checks out, it might be a bios error. Check your boot load order and if the motherboard is detecting the hard drives, check that the correct bios settings for OS management are in place as this is a server. Is the RAM power settings (voltage) and speed correctly selected? Will the computer boot from optical drive using a live CD? Will it boot from a USB live OS (like Ubuntu)?

Since it's not booting, you may not have compatible hardware or damaged hardware. The OS that's installed on the hard drives may not be able to load on the new (older model) motherboard due to driver incompatibility.

Boot up computer. Nothing comes up on screen. Get a message:"information. No input signal." Everything is plugged in correctly.


  • check the cable on the monitor screen
  • if after removing the data cable from the computer and it has no vertical color screen then
  • try other data cable
  • try other monitor screen

Start up


That message will appear when there is no boot record found on any device the system board tries to boot from. This probably means that your hard drive is not being detected, does not have a bootable copy of Windows on it, or is defective.

Make sure the drive is correctly listed in the motherboard setup screens. If it is not, check for proper power and data cable connections at both the drive and main board. If the drive is being correctly identified, you may need to reinstall your operating system.

My computer won't start up right


press F1, when it boots you are going to have to go down to the date and time, and click on it then you will need to put in the correct day date and time. If pressing f2 it will take you into the bios, and you can set it from there prior to booting, unless you know what you are doing, stay away from the bios, it can really screw up your computer. Good luck and Peace,Gym
