It probably says insert suitable boot device. If you are trying to boot from a cd go into the bios and set the boot device priority to CD as priority. If hard drive then set hard disk to the top.

I have asus laptop. When I try to start it up it says 'reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press any key'


The laptop can not find an operating system, Windows or some other system, which means that the operating system has been corrupted. If you made a recovery disc you will need to put it in the DVD and reboot. If you did not make a recovery disc or thumb drive you will need a disc with the operating system on it.

I have a eMachine t5246. My hard drive went bad, very bad, couldn't get it to even get wiped out so. my eMachine disc won't start up. It is the operating disc but every time it says install and...


If the hard drive failed you will first need to replace it with a working hard drive. One that is done, power on the computer with the recovery disc is the drive and enter setup. It should say something like press F9 or F10 for Setup. Look through the menus for "Boot Order", make sure your CD/DVD drive is above hard drive. Save the changes and reboot, you should get a message "Press any key to boot to disc" or something similar, do so, and follow the prompts to re-install windows.

It may be a content disc. One probably holds your operating system, the other holds your preinstall programs.

    My laptop keeps saying ntdlr is missing and wont start up what should i do


    Check to see if you have inserted any DVD/CDs in the CD/DVD drive or any USB/External storage medium connected to the PC when it is booting. If yes, then try removing them and reboot

    If no, then try using the Boot File Repair option on Win7/Win Vista installation DVD.
