If you have changed the sequence to allow the CDROM to boot before the C:Drive and are certain the CD is a boot disk then there should be no problems. Try pressing the "C" button at the onset!

When I turn on my laptop pc every couple days a black screen will come up and the laptop stops processing. Why? How to fix it?


I would suspect a glitch in the MBR/software, a black screen with a white cursor in the top left, BUT, Try this , when you shut down always unplug, remove battery when you use at home connected to AC. At boot in BIOS, BOOT sequence, change to Boot from HDD first. Also remove DVD's, CD's from the DVD/CD rom drive, if the machine has boot from DVD/CD rom as a default, it will try to read the disk in the drive first, delaying a switch to second HDD boot. This is a general idea in the Boot sequence procedure: http://helpdeskgeek.com/how-to/change-boot-order-xp-vista/

Sounds like you are trying to boot from a lan or someplace other than your hard drive. Turn the computer off then turn it back on and watch the screen for which key it says to hit to Change the Boot Order or Boot Sequence then hit that key. You have to hit the key when you see the message or it will not work and you'll have to reboot to restart the process. Select the Hard Drive as your boot source and then see if it boots up all the way. If it does, you will have to do this each time you start the computer unless you make a permanent change to the boot order or boot sequence.

To make the change permanent, turn the computer off and restart it. Look at the screen for which key it says to hit to get into the Bios or System Setup then hit that key. You have to hit the key when you see the message or it will not work and you'll have to restart. Once you get into the Bios or System Setup look for the Boot Sequence Tab or Settings and go change the boot sequence or Boot Order. Make the cd drive 1st, and the hard drive 2nd. This is the normal boot order or boot sequence. Just make sure when you boot the computer you don't have a music cd or movie dvd in the drive or you'll get an error because the system will try to boot from the cd/dvd drive 1st.

It sounds like you might be trying to boot into a domain or lan. Turn the computer off and turn it back on and watch the screen for which key it says to press to Change the Boot Order or Boot Sequence. Hit that key when you see the message otherwise you will have to restart and try again. Select the Hard Drive as your boot option and let it boot up. If you are successful this is a temporary change and will have to be done each time you boot the computer. See below on how to make it permanent.

If you are successful then you want to turn the system off again and reboot looking at the screen for which key it says to hit to get into the Bios or System Setup. Hit that key when you see the message or you'll have to try again. When the Bios is open tab over to the Boot Sequence or Boot Order and set the dvd/cd as 1st and the Hard Drive as 2nd. This is the normal boot sequence and when you boot just make sure you don't have a music cd or movie video in the dvd/cd drive or you might get an error message if it tries to boot from it. The cd/dvd is first just in case the hard drive fails then you can use a cd to try and make repairs.

I get the following error message: Check cable connection! PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel PXE ROM No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key


You computer is trying to boot from somewhere other than your hard drive.

Turn the computer off and when you turn it on, watch the screen for which key it says to hit to Change the Boot Order or Boot Sequence. Hit that key when you see the message or it will not work and you will have to reboot and try it again. Select the Hard Drive as your bood device and let it boot up. This is a temporary change only good for this boot cycle. You need to make a permanent change to the boot order.

To make a permanent change to the boot order or sequence, turn the computer off and watch the screen for which key it says to hit to get into the BIOS or System Setup. Hit that key when you see the message or you will have to restart and try again. Once you get into the BIOS or System Setup tab over to change the boot order or boot sequence. Normally the best sequence is to have the DvD/CD drive 1st and the Hard Drive 2nd. Just make sure when you boot the computer that you don't have a music cd or movie dvd in the drive or you will get an error message if it tries to boot from it. You want this sequence just incase you have problems with your hard drive, then you can put a repair disc or system disc in the dvd/cd drive and it will boot from it so you can try to fix the problem.

When i start my laptop it goes to a screen an says enter boot disk an press any key..but i dont have a disk...


Sounds like your system is booting from somewhere other than the hard drive or you have a music cd or movie dvd in the DvD/CD drive when you booted the laptop. If so, remove the music cd or movie dvd and reboot.
You want it to boot from the hard drive.

Turn the computer off and press the power button to reboot it. Notice the screen and watch for which key it says to hit to change the Boot Order or Boot Sequence. You have to hit that key when you see the message otherwise it will be to late and you will need to start over. Select the Hard Drive and let it boot up. This is a temporary change and only good for this boot cycle. You'll have to do it each time you boot or you can make it permanent.

To set your boot order or boot sequence permanently reboot the computer and look at the screen to hit the key it says to get into the Bios or System Setup. Hit that key when you see the message or it will be too late and you will have to restart it. When you get into the Bios or System Setup tab over to the Boot Order or Boot Sequence. The normal boot order should be the DvD/CD drive 1st, the Hard Drive 2nd. With this setting you have to make sure nothing is in the DvD/CD drive when you boot the system or it will try to read it as a system disk and give you an error if it can't boot from it. If there is nothing in the DvD/CD drive it moves to the next boot device which is the Hard Drive. This setting is the best because it will allow you to use a Repair Disk or Operating System Disk to fix your computer when the hard drive has issues.

Reboot with cd


Put the cd in the drive and the system might be set to boot from it automatically.

If not, Put the cd in the drive and watch your screen for which key it says to hit to change the Boot Order or Boot Sequence, when you see the message, hit that key. This is a temporary change only good for the current boot cycle.

If you want to make a permanent change to the boot order or boot sequence, reboot your system and watch the screen for which key it says to hit to enter the Bios or System Setup. When you see the message, hit the key. Tab over to change the boot order or boot sequence. Normally you would make the CD/DvD drive 1st and the Hard Drive 2nd, because if the hard drive fails or has a problem you can always insert the cd and it will boot from it first. Just make sure when you boot that there is no music cd or movie dvd in the drive or you will get a message saying something to the effect of Unbootable device.

No bootable devices


Make sure you don't have anything in the CD/DvD Drive. It sounds like your system is trying to boot from something other than your hard drive.

Turn the system off then press the power button to restart it. Watch the screen for which key it says to hit to Change the Boot Order or Boot Sequence and hit that key when you see the message. Select the Hard Drive as your boot device and let it boot up again. This is a temporary change that is only good for the current boot cycle.

It the system boots then you want to restart the computer and this time watch the screen and see which key it says to hit to get into the Bios or System Setup and hit that key. When it opens tab over to the Boot and set your boot order or boot sequence to have the CD/DvD drive 1st and your Hard Drive 2nd. This is the normal way so that if your hard drive ever fails to boot you can put a cd in the drive to remedy the problem. Otherwise, just make sure nothing is in the cd/dvd drive when you turn the boot the computer.

Will not move past pre start screen/ operating system not found


Sound like you might be be booting from your hard drive or you might have a music cd or movie dvd in the CD/DvD Drive. When you turn the machine on watch the screen and see what key it says to hit to Change the Boot Sequence or Boot Order, then hit that key while the message is displayed. Select your hard drive as the boot device and then see if it boots.

If it boots you need to reboot and watch the screen again to see what key it says to hit to get into the Bios or System Setup. Once in the Bios or System Setup tab over to the Boot Sequence or Boot Order and make your cd drive the 1st Boot Device and the Hard Drive the 2nd. This will make the change permanent, whereas the change we did before is only for that boot cycle. When you boot just make sure nothing is in the CD/DvD Drive.

I tried to install windows 7 on my HP Pavillion DV9, but it's not booting from CD-ROM, i tried using a USB CD-ROM, but it's still not booting. pls I need assistance.


Hi,

Try to check if the windows 7 disc that you are using is not just an upgrade disc. Make sure that it is a bootable disc. Try to use other bootable disc to test. Also make sure that the boot device priority is set CD/DVD drive.

Hope this helps.
