If you have a screen with messages on it, the bios is good as it would not get that far with corrupt bios, it would hang and do nothing.

Boot into bios to verify system can see the hard drive. If system shows drive in bios and you are using windows xp or later try using the recovery console options by tapping F8 repeatedly to enter menu. , if you have one. If no recovery console...use either the recovery disks created by the system administrator or the original install disk to attempt a repair option on the boot of windows.
Your hard drive might have damage or the OS my be missing or corrupt.......you might have to re-install the system.

Comes up no opererating system.sees hard drive and cd rom.does not read vista disk in cd rom.know cd of vista good,do i just need to change out cd rom drive?


I think your PC is trying to boot from a hard drive without an operating system.

You'll need to change the boot option in the bios from HDD to CD.

When the boot screen comes up, look at the bottom of the screen, it'll say something akin to

Select "DEL" for SETUP or F2 for boot options, you can use either, but remember if you choose to change the setup, it will be a permanent change until you reset it.

Hit the requisite button, read the screen to change "The first boot device" to CD. If you change just your boot option, your pc should then boot from the Disk.

If you decide to change the bios (setup) settings you'll need to save and exit. Unless you're very sure, just change the boot option for now.

After boot, appears ENTER PRIMARY MASTER HDD USER Password i need the password @ solution to boot up my lappy... thanks


How Do I Change the Primary Master HDD User Password?

Prior to loading an operating system, your computer will first execute the BIOS program. The BIOS has an extra password feature, called the hard disk drive (HDD) user password, that can't be bypassed and provides a layer of defense to keep your data secure. To change an existing HDD user password you will have to load the BIOS menu, which is only accessible during the computer's operating system reboot procedure.

Instructions

1. Close any windows that are currently open on your computer. Eject any discs inserted into the optical drive and disconnect any peripheral USB devices.

2. Open the "Start" menu and select "Shut Down." Turn on your computer once the operating system finishes shutting down.

3. Press the key your computer uses to load the BIOS menu. For example, with Dell computers tap "F2" when the "Press F2 for Setup" option appears. Press the "Access IBM" key on IBM laptops or "F10" on HP desktops.

4. Navigate to the BIOS tab that contains the HDD password option, which will usually be the "Security" tab. Some computer manufactures instead include the password option in the "Advanced" tab.

5. Scroll down to the option labeled either "User Password" or "BIOS lock" and hit "Enter." Type the current master HDD user password when the prompt appears and press "Enter."

6. Input a new HDD user password and hit "Enter" again. Navigate to the BIOS tab labeled "Exit" or something similar.

7. Move over to the "Save and Exit" entry and press "Enter." Select "Yes" and tap "Enter."

Dv6000 will not startup ,Black screen , hd isnit being accessed


When you first turn the laptop on is there a HP splash screen? Can you enter the BIOS (normally by tapping F2 or Del key). If so then it would seem the BIOS updated OK. If when you turn it on there is nothing the BIOS flash probably went wrong and the machine will need a new BIOS flash chip installed.
If you can access BIOS then it may be a simple problem that the new BIOS reverted to default values. The most common issue would be the boot mode of the HDD. Look through the BIOS menus and there should be an option for boot which will say AHCI/IDE/Compatibility. Try changing it to another option, save and exit BIOS and see if that helps. Try this for each option.
Alternatively tap F8 continuously when you turn the laptop on and see if the advanced boot menu appears, if it does try selecting Safe mode with networking.
Finally to test if the HDD is actually working, try downloading Hiren's BootCD and boot to it. Then run some HDD diagnostics to see if the HDD is operating correctly.
Hope this helps,

Good day i have tried to install Win XP on my acer aspire laptop after formatting the HDD on another machine but i cant, the acer did not recognise the HDD. what do i do


Do you have an Xp disk? This is the only way I know of to install Windows Xp without encountering any problems.

You will need the disk; also you need to make sure that the boot options see that you want it to boot from your cd drive. When you start your computer up, get to this screen by hitting the key to enter setup options shortly after hitting the power button. It's where you change your BIOS and other stuff.
This is where you can make sure it recognizes your new HDD and change your boot option to #1-boot from cd drive.

Reply to this if you need more info.

Hope this helps.

Cant boot


In your bios you should be able to change your settings for the hdd. Make sure everything in bios matches your hdd & then save changes & reboot. Hopefully that will allow you to enter windows.

Boot problem thinkpad r50e


Your PC may be doing a complete memory check, this does take time although your 1 minute boot time might make some of us jealous.
Check your BIOS settings to see if you have a 'Fast Boot' option. If it does, make sure you are using it. It then will make only a cursory check of memory and it is probably OK otherwise you would have other symptoms that would let you know.
