    Is your keyboard wireless? Use a regular wired keyboard. Does that make a difference?

When I turn on the laptop, the asus screen comes up and it seems to be booting but after a long while shows an error and restsrts never actually booting up


While it starts to boot up, press the ESC key, or appropriate key that allows you to enter into setup. From the setup area, look for an option to boot into safe mode or into a Command Prompt. Once in safe mode, if it works, press start, and go to run and enter CMD. In this window type in bootrec /fixmbr and press enter. Next type in bootrec /fixboot and press enter. Restart your computer normally.

If you can start in the command prompt, enter in the same commands.

Also if you have a windows recovery or windows installation disk you can access the command prompt as well as fix any issues that are cauing your machine to not boot.
Here is a step by step guide on how to solve such problems.

In nova net pc with intel D945GCLF Mother board , it does not boot the system with windows, and want to flash the bios , its not supporting with usb boot, cd,dvd booting ? , then how we install windows in...


while booting up it must be giving you an option to enter the cmos setup with hitting either f8 key or del key or f10 key. Just hit the key at the appropriate time and enter the advance setup in the cmos setup and go to boot devices and select the priority you wish. In some cases the hard drive and cd rom have jumper settings for putting them in master and slave mode. just read on the drive label and set your cd rom to master and your hdd to slave and you will be able to boot through cd and instal windows.

Formatting windows xp


Hello,
While your computer is booting up, look for a "press [key] to enter setup". That key will be the one you want to get you into the BIOS settings. It can be a number of different keys, so if your POST screen doesn't show it, try DEL, F1-10
Go to BIOS setup, then boot from USB Drive. After that restart your system. Then automatically windows XP will boot from your pen drive/USB drive.

Can't enter BIOS setup with F2


Try using another application that has a use for the F2 key. I'm not totally convinced that your keyboard is good. It is possible for just one key to fail. Happens quite often.

Enter BIOS on boot


Hi,

According to the intel manual the key is F2

"The BIOS Setup program can be used to view and change the BIOS settings for the computer. The
BIOS Setup program is accessed by pressing the <F2> key after the Power-On Self-Test (POST)
memory test begins and before the operating system boot begins."

That is from the manual for the board, instead of reinstalling Windows you may as well just change the product key on one of the installations to your other copy.
