Check the jumper settings, for this take out the hard drive and check the small jumper should be attached to master point. your cd rom should be on the slave the same way...reconnect the hard drive and restart ..after restarting goto bios . advanced configuration> boot options>first boot device> select hard disk and save exit. restart the pc

Is the BIOS settings ok? Try changing the Molex power Connector or Change the power Supplies. Hope this helps

My toshiba laptop c580 was messing up so I tryed to refomat it but it was unsucsessful now when I try to boot it it's says no bootable device please insert bootable disc and press any key .. Is this...


Even though the reformat failed, the hard drive was still partially formatted, erasing the operating system (Windows 8). When you format a disk, you are effectively erasing the disk for use by certain software. At this point you will have to reinstall an operating system. To do this you will need to boot from operating system installation disc.
Here is a guide on how to reinstall Windows 8 yourself:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-gb/windows-8/clean-install

If you feel uncomfortable performing the installation yourself, I would recommend taking the laptop (and install disc, if you have one) to a computer repair technician. If you don't have an installation disc, your repair technician can acquire a copy for you, though this should cost extra.

you will need a Windows boot disk / Windows install disk / WinXP disk to reboot the PC and install / or repair your OS

rescue disk will not boot your PC
to enable that you need to enter the BIOS, press F1, F2 or Del to enter BIOS , then you need to look for the BOOT seq in BIOS, change that to CD DVD drive as the 1st boot device, Save and Exit and insert the boot CD and restart
this should give you the solution

I have sony vaio laptop whice model is vgn fw 140e. i try to install win xp but i can't install it. can u solve my problem please.


hello, you have to check your BIOS setting if the HARD DRIVE is not above the CD OR DVD ROM, if it is then you must change the settings and allow the CD OR DVD ROM to be above the hard drive,then insert your window xp formatting CD.this time you should be able to install window xp.

Reinstalling


Hard drive has bad sectors on it which is why its giving you that message even though you can go thru the restore. Normally going thru the system cd and then the recovery cd should bring you into windows with the device drivers installed.

Disk boot failure, insert system disk and press enter


The drive should be set with jumpers or cable select to be primary master. Some pc & drive combinations don't like cable select, others insist on it. Try both, one at a time.

Disk boot failure


After making 100% sure you have no diskette or CD in any drives the conclusion may well be that the disk is ruined. You ay try to boot from a diskette or CD and see if you can access the disk then. (see www.ultimatebootcd.com for instructions to make a boot CD) "The ultimate boot CD" has a few tools that might help you out. Since you can't boot you must make it on a different computer, though. You may also try to insert the disk in a diffe rent computer to see if it can be booted there. Also make sure all cables are properly connected.
