What is the boot disc and how do i install it


If the Windows operating system is installed on your hard disk then the boot disk disk is your hard disk. If your computer cannot find the boot disk then the hard disk maybe faulty.
First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

Open your laptop and and fix the hard disk cable.After this start laptop and check the bios if HDD detected then select boot device and select first boot device is Hard disk.Save the setting and restart the window.You are able to open your window. But If Hard disk drive is not detected change data cable,power cable of Hard disk.If hard disk is detected in bios follow upper rules. And if it is not detected again you should walk into Hard disk repairing center and check hard disk there.

My HP 4710s had a weird message that pops up after the logo screen. Then it says non disk or disk error strike any key to continue...I do that and the same message pops up...plz help.


the HP cannot boot up because it cannot find the hard disk to boot up from.
You could have a faulty hard drive or the hard drive needs re-seating.
If the HP still does not boot up after re-seating the hard drive go into the BIOS setting and see if the hard disk is detected. If not the most likely the hard disk is faulty.
To get the laptop working again. replace the hard disk, install Windows on the new hard disk plus the HP Laptop's device drivers and your programs.

My laptop wont start up, It says "system disc or non system disc error, replace and press any key.." why? :(


you have it set to boot from cd so when you startup the computer it attempts to read the cd and than boot an operating system for you either remove the disk or enter your bios menu and set your boot order to negate the cd drive

My laptop does not boot. it always ask for a cd to boot but i already reformat it.someone told me that it is a hard disk problem and advice me to replace my hard drive.


When the computer starts it flashes up press f2or delete or some other key to enter setup. Go through the settings and there should be one that will allow you to change the boot device. It sounds to me like it is set to boot from the cd rom drive only. Change it to boot from the hard drive and save changes to CMOS and restart the computer. The computer should now boot from the hard drive.

How to boot from external hard disk plsss help


You could setup a dual boot system, this requires a fairly large hard disk and you need installation XP and Vista CDs.
The other option is to install XP only on your hard disk.
