Check your Bios settings (F10) on startup...see if they show up there

    When you restart your computer, look for instructions on entering BIOS setup (F10, F2, Delete, are some of the keys normally used) Try each one till you get it.



    When you find the right key, your BIOS settings will be displayed, but do not make any changes. It will show you the drives on your system.



    Look for the drive that you are missing

I could have told you you were loading Windows 7 by the symptoms. Try running a Malware program with a register edit-register function in it. If you are switching from XP Pro. you will need to clear your register and all command and drive to . Set BIOS to boot from DVD/CD first then set the hard drive to boot second. Windows. Also if you have access to another computer ask microsoft for tech support.

My Compac Presario F700 will not come up, I just get a blank screen even in safe mode. When I press F10 it runs through programs and stops at crcdisk.sys? How do I reset system?


If you have the software disks that came with the computer you can use those to restore the system. Or use the windows installation disc to repair/restore windows.

Computer


From what I have found, that system should come with a DVD-RW drive by default.
  1. Check device manager, see if the drive is detected by Windows as a DVD type drive.
  2. If the drive is ID'd as a DVD drive, but will not browse a DVD movie in MY COMPUTER then there is a failure of the DVD optics of the drive and it needs to be replaced.
  3. If you can browse a DVD, but not play one, then you most likely need a DVD codec installed to read DVDs. Search google for the K-Lite Codec pack.
  4. If you are trying to burn to DVD media, ensure you have a DVD buring software installed as XP has no native DVD burn capability.

Bootmgr error


Hi,
theres several stages involving formating a disk.
this error however, appears to be discribing a boot-manager program.
Try booting with Windows in the actually DVD Drive.
If this does,nt work, re-format the hard-drive. or obtain a setup disk from your computers manufacturer.
i.e Compaq.

Open "my computer" and try to open the CD or DVD from there by double clicking it, or right clicking and selecting "open". If this works, you have merely turned off the "autorun" feature. If you need help to turn this back on, please ask again. If no luck, right click on "my computer" and select "properties", select the "hardware" tab and select "device manager". you should be able to see your dvd drive. right click on it and select properties and post back what it says. All the above assumes windows XP, but should be similar for others.
