Hi! Welcome to
Removed your power cable and drain power without any power. restart and keep on hitting f12 to get to the boot menu choose ODD then put the OS CD then press enter until its say press any key. If it did not work your other option is reboot and hit f1 or f2 to change the boot sequence on boot option. Restart pc then hit f2 go to boot option and choose DVD/CD to be your first boot option then press f10 restart and it should load automatically.
Hope this resolution fix the problem on your computer. Thanks for contacting Fixya. Bye for now.

I cant see anything on my computer disktop it doesnt show any icons just only shows desktop wallpaper? how to resolve it

Hi, sounds like your operating system has encountered a problem. You can restore your system to a previous time before the problem occured, by booting into safe mode. To do this press the ESC or Del key during initial boot fase and select boot in safe mode. If this does not work your other option could be to do a system restore, by placing your operating system into the cd driver.

Comuter does not show Desktop screen.

either reinstall your xp operating system or change your booting up device .
to change that you must push the F key that it shows on the screen when you start up the computer i forget which key it is. that allows you to go in to a menu to change multiple things on your computer. but only mess with that if you know what you are doing because you might ruin your computer.
if your not to great with computers ill gladly explain the process on hot to change the boot device.

OS Problem?

Hi Platinum,

You may need to remove the other operating to complete the correct booting process. All you need to do boot your system to the working windows. You may either select one of the operating system. When you are already in your desktop screen. Please follow the instructions below.

for XP
1. Click Start button, go to run then type msconfig in the box. A pop up window will show up on the screen.
2. Look for Boot.ini
3. Click on "set as default" button.
4. Click on apply then close and restart your system.

When it goes in to your BIOS, its telling you something is wrong. Check your settings or change to it default. Set you first bootable device to the CD/DVD. Insert your bootable Win CD and then save settings and "exit". Your system will then boot to the CD. It'll prompt you as to what you do next. Do Not use the first "repair" option. Go to the next screen and follow instructions. Hope this solves your problem.
