How do I download windows 7 os on to a flash drive so that I can up load it onto my Dell laptop as it has a new drive


if you have the cd for win 7 , go to the bios and change the boot sequence from hard drive to 1st cd
save change
insert the cd
shut down then start again from there
the computer will select the cd unit and load the program from there onto the hard drive
when you have finished downloading all drivers from their relevant manufacturers web pages
close down and on opening get back to bios and change the boot sequence from cd back to hard drive as first option

How to restore system


im assuming you have the recovery disk

Restart the computer and press the pause/break key on the keyboard.


This key will slow down the boot process and allow you to see the motherboard BIOS access key that you'll need to press in order to access the motherboard BIOS.


Press the respective motherboard access key and check the motherboard BIOS for a boot sequence.

Change the settings in the boot sequence so the primary boot device or the first boot drive is the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive.


Insert the system recovery disc into the disc drive.

Restart the computer and allow it to boot up before doing anything.


A black screen should show up with the words Press any key to boot from disc CD/DVD.
Press a key to have the system boot from the recovery disc.


Allow the system to load.

Follow the on-screen instructions on how to install the rest of the operating system.


There are many different settings for you to choose.
If the operating system is just a little out of whack, you can choose to repair it.


The system recovery disc will contain important drivers and software for all the components connected to the computer system.


If you do not have a system restore disc you can search the Internet for drivers and software that are packaged for your specific eMachines model.


Restore the BIOS to their default settings so the hard drive is primary boot sequence.

This is an optional step.


You can leave the CD-ROM drive as the primary boot drive, but it will slow down the startup process by a few seconds.

hope this helps

I have a WD my book drive. When I try to see the files on the drive they are Not there, But when I click the properties the drive shows half the drive space is used. how do I get the files to show be...


Hi,
It is due to virus activity. Some virus make the contents of the drive hidden, thats why user can't see the files. This can be fixed and data would be available to you. However, there are number of steps involved.
It is suggested that go to FOLDER OPTIONS - and select 'SHOW HIDDEN FILES & FOLDERS' and uncheck/ Deselect 'HIDE PROTECTED SYSTEM FILES'.

It would show the hidden files/ folders, if the system not infected Otherwise, from the clean/ virus free system you can see your data and copy all the required files/data. Select the required files and right-click and change the properties of the file by un-checking the hidden attribute. Please note that you can not change the properties (hidden attribute of the files) if the files are marked as system files. To change the attribute of such folders you can download and use iReset.

Also, make sure that you have a good antivirus installed and its updated. Scan your system and clean it.

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

Can't change the boot sequence


can you see the cd rom on the devices installed list as if its not showing up it will not let you change the boot sequence. also to revert to factory settings you need to remove the bios battery hand leave out for a few minutes, then put back in on first boot it will ask for the settings to be set.

Can't open the BIOS


try disconnecting all of the likely boot sequence options (HD, CD drive, etc.) then see if you can get into the bios. What are you trying to boot to/from?

Computer shows invalid system disc,wont let me do anything else


This might be simple.
Assuming your son didn't make any internal changes to your computer. The problem may be that he changed your boot sequence to boot to floppy or CD instead of the Hard Drive.
Do the following:

As your computer is starting you will briefly have the option to hit F8 (I think F8 Might be another) for "start up menu or options".
This will take you to a screen of text where following the on screen text areas and moving the curser with the keyboard arrows and enter or escape check your boot sequence (the order of where your computer is to look for start up information)

It should read as follows:
#1 HDD1 (this text may vary)
#2 CDROM drive
#3 FLOPPY (if you have one) or other removable drive

If your son changed this and forgot to it back your computer may be trying to get start up information from a CD or Floppy instead of your hard drive.

Once you've changed this (assuming you needed to change it) following the instructions use the key to "save changes and exit"
Your computer should now boot up correctly.

Let me know if this helps
