New Asus N10JC with WinXPHome cannot find booting HDD !

I've opened the box, installed battery, and put the device on.
Nothing, but:
"Reboot and Select proper booting device ..."
In BIOS it seams to have no HDD at all.
Where is the problem ?
Thanks.

My computer keeps rebooting


Does it Boot or is it stuck in a boot loop cycle? Have you done ANY hardware or software, new OS?, updates/upgrades lately? Memory? Put in a new CMOS battery. Try reseating Memory Mods. Are the Fans, heatsink, vents clean? Open the BIOS setup, check Clock, set if necessary, Disable Auto Reboot. Remove ALL Media DVD,CD,USB devices, Printer cable, ect., Will it boot to Safe Mode? Take a look : http://searchenterprisedesktop.techtarget.com/Steps-for-solving-the-reboot-loop-problem May be a bad HDD? Remove and test, replace if necessary.

How can i reboot my laptop? i turn it on and it says ''Reboot and select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in Selected Boot device and press a key_'' Any ideas??


It is either not seeing the HDD and/or the boot sector on the hdd has been damaged. Any repair you do will only be possible after you boot to an environment. If you can get a bootable CD made, that would be one option. Bootable USB is another. Once booted, you will then be able to examine the HDD to see what the problem is.
Does the bios show a HDD at all?

Asus P5KPL SE & Sata, Bios "Not Detected Problem"..


The Asus bios won't show SATA devices.
However if you are using Windows XP with Service Pack 2 (or newer operating system then the devices should be detected. If this is not happening then enter the bios -- Storage Configuration -- Configuration Enhanced and set the IDE devices to compatible. This allows all drives to be "seen" and you should then be able to load an OS.

New build pc no boot... black screen


Try to remove the battery from the MB, and next time you try to install WIN XP, when you are asked how to format your drive, chose quick NTFS formatting; disable floppy drive in BIOS, because it might try to boot from it (and I suppose you don't have one), and in boot sequence (BOOT DEVICE PRIORITY) set cd-dvd as first, and HDD as second, and turn off any other device as bootable

AMD Puma-based Asus M51Ta stalls at power up, screen is blank.


Have you tried booting and pressing F2 to get in the bios?
If that works you can check the boot devices and order of usage. Make sure the HDD is first.
Apart from that you can reboot and press F8 to get in the Windows boot menu, where you can try the Safe Mode.

If all this fails, the Windows configuration is somehow corrupt. You can try booting from a Windows CD and run the Repair option in the setup.
