Risk of losing data by re-booting CD-ROM recovery disk


Copy off your data to another computer before recovering. A recovery usually restores to factory settings and loses all data.
You could boot to Ubuntu or Linux and copy your stuff that way, then when restored, copy it back.

No boot sector on internal hard drive. No bootable


Hi there,

A boot sector is a sector of a hard disk that contains booting programs stored in the other part of the hard disk. You boot sector might have been deleted or corrupted and you can't logon until you repair or recover the boot sector. To do this you must have your OS cd. Boot from OS cd the follow below steps...

Windows Vista
1. Insert the installation disc.
2. Restart your computer
3. If prompted, press any key to start Windows from the installation disc.
4. Choose your language settings, and then click Next.
5. Click Repair your computer.
6. Select the operating system you want to repair, and then click Next.

7.

On the System Recovery Options menu, click Startup Repair. Startup Repair might prompt you to make choices as it tries to fix the problem, and if necessary, it might restart your computer as it makes repairs.


Boot from you hard disk then you're done!

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.

Even though i feel i am putting in the correct password it will not accept it


If the password is correct then the CAPS lock maybe ON.

If the password was changed then -
You can remove or change the Window's User or administrator's password. You need access to a computer with Internet access to download the Hiren's Boot CD and burn it onto a CD. Then insert this CD into the laptop/computer and boot up the laptop/computer with the Hiren's CD and follow the instructions.

My computer wont boot correctly


won't boot at all?
it's probably the BIOS settings
go to the BIOS settings by pressing F8 or DEL
go to advanced settings
look for "boot device priority" or something like that
set the first priority device as your harddisk
save & exit,restart,happy computing

the "boot device priority" maybe not placed on advanced setting,each BIOS has different interfaces,just look for something like that,it's easy

When my gateway MT6705 tries to boot, blue screen


Many times this error occurs when I have swapped a hard drive and used the wrong IDE cable to connect it. If your computer uses an Ultra Direct Memory Access (UDMA) hard disk controller, and you use a standard 40-wire connector cable to connect the UDMA drive, you may experience this error. Make sure you are using the correct IDE cable.

Also, if your BIOS settings are configured to force the faster UDMA modes, this error may occur. In this situation, restart your computer and enter the BIOS and load the "fail-safe" default settings and reboot.

If neither of these issues are the cause for the Unmountable Boot Volume, then the issue most likely is caused by a damaged BOOT.INI file in the root directory of the boot drive or file system corruption.

Follow the steps below to correct these file system issues:

1) Start your computer with your Windows XP CD-ROM, or with Windows XP boot disks
2) When the Welcome to Setup screen appears, press R to Repair the installation using the Recovery Console
3) If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the Windows installation you want to access
4) Type the administrator password when you are prompted, if no administrator password is set then just press Enter
5) At the command prompt, type CHKDSK /R and then press Enter
6) Once CHKDSK has finished checking and repairing the hard drive, type EXIT and press Enter to restart your computer

Toshiba satellite A205 will not boot


Re-installing your operating system should fix your boot-up problem.

Check your cmos battery to see if it is inserted correctly and that it still holds a charge.
