First thing to try is the manufacturers diagnostic software.if that doesn't work try the ultimate boot cd
http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/ it is free and has a lot of utilities for hdd diagnostics. if you still can't get a definitive answer i would say you have a faulty logic board.

if you have a new hard drive you will have to install the windows operating system from an external source such as a cd drive
go to bios --boot settings and change from 1st boot hard drive to 1st boot cd
install the win os and then you can install the rest
when finished go back to bios and -boot and change back to 1st boot hard drive

1) Restart your computer. Note that during computer restart, the screen goes blank for 3 to 5 seconds. Text then appears and the operating system boots up.

My gateway 2118u netbook will not boot or turn off the screen says: For Atheros PCIE Ethernet Controller v2.0.0.9(05/08/09) Check cable connection! PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel PXE ROM. No bootable...


Can you access your BIOS when you turn on the computer?

Somewhere in the BIOS you may have inadvertently changed the netbook to boot from the "Network via PXE" instead of from your local hard drive.

To enter the BIOS, you must restart the PC and enter BIOS setup or BIOS features by pressing Delete or another hardware specific key on BIOS screen startup.

From there, you should encounter a series of menus that you can navigate only with the keyboard... not the mouse. With luck, you will find a boot menu option that you can correct.

Make sure you save your choices on exiting and restart your PC. With a little bit of trial and error, you should be able to coax your netbook to boot from its internal driver.

Gateway 200ARC goes to "Last Known Good Configuration" screen


try reseating the dvd drive and then go into the BIOS to be sure that the drive is being recognized. Actually go into the area of the BIOS that shows the name of the dvd drive that it recognizes.

It it does recognize the dvd drive properly then try other boot cd's. It still may not recognize them.

If so try another known good dvd drive in the laptop and if you have the same problem then take out the hard drive and then see if the system will boot up off of the dvd drive then. If it still doesn't boot then the motherboard is bad.

If it does boot then that means the new hard drive is bad and shorting out the dvd drive controller on the motherboard and the hard drive would need to be replaced.

Hope this helps clear up things for you and sorry for not responding sooner.

Replaced harddrive and dvdroom wont recognize in bios


Goto bios menu. And change the setting on hard drive and cdrom. It could be it still set in the old configuration. Try to set it in auto detect. Then save the setting. Then goto bios once again to check if the settings doesn't change. Restart again and wait if something you didn't expect still happens.

Leave a comment if this solve cd rom detection.

Change boot sequence for HP L2000


Hi,
You need to enter BIOS at startup. The correct key to press will be displayed at the bottom of the black screen when you bootup. Usually, F10, F8 or F11 or Del. Mash them all on booting up.
Now navigate the Bios settings with the arrow buttons and select cdrom as 1st boot device with the enter button. Then Save and Exit.

Fixya!
