    well.. cd and dvd drives tend to last as much as two years, if the last more you got a winner...
    for me, they tend to work like one year, but thats because i make back up of everything..
    but if the dvd unit is new.. i am almost 100% sure that its the pin configuration.. make sure that your back side of the HD is on master (the one thats the C:\) and your dvd be Slave... if its CBS or cable select, thats gonna be very anoying..

    take for example this picture:http://www.buildeasypc.com/pics/hdd_back...
    that is an IDE hard disk.. its IDE because it has the gray cable. SATA disk have a smaller (most of the times) red or orange cable.. the pins i am talking about are the two white ones..
    that is on a special configuration, because it is an old drive and requires two or more pins...
    you should check if you can read somewhere around there for the specifications on which pin is master, cbs, or slave

Cant find Windows Installer and my XP restore plus will not open


My suggestion would be to go into BIOS Setup, and in Boot Options; change the first boot device to CDROM.

Computer off. (Press the Power On button in for a count of 10 seconds, or until computer turns off)

AS SOON AS you press the Power On button, start tapping on the F10 key.
Tap in 2 second intervals.
If you hear beeps ignore them. They are Stuck Key Error Code beeps, and it is You that is doing it. (It's OK)

Takes a few seconds, then you should be looking at the Main menu, in BIOS Setup,

System Information
Standard CMOS Setup
Advanced BIOS Features
Advanced Chipset Features
Integrated Peripherals
Power Management Setup

PnP/PCI Configuration
PC Health Status
Load Optimized Defaults
Supervisor Password
Set User Password
Save and Exit Setup
Exit Without Saving

You CANNOT use your mouse anymore. You need to use the Keyboard.

Use the Down Arrow key, and highlight Advanced BIOS Features.
Press the Enter key.

First Boot Device
Second Boot Device
Third Boot Device
Fourth Boot Device

You want CDROM as the First Boot Device.
This FORCES the computer to boot off of a disk in the optical drive.
(CD/DVD drive)

So you will want Optical Drive as the first boot device.

BIOS Setup changes. There are different versions.
The manual is unclear, of how to move Optical Drive to the top of the list, or also can be said as move to First Boot Device.

Let's see if this method is used;
Use the Down Arrow key, and highlight -> First Boot Device
Now press the Enter key.

Use the Down Arrow to highlight Optical Drive.
Press the Enter key.
Now look at the navigation guide at the bottom. (Does NOT state navigation guide)

Use the appropriate keys to Change Value.
It should either be the + / - keys, or the Page Up/Page Down keys.

(If you can, I would use the Minus { - } key, and not use the Plus
{ + } key )

Tap the key until Optical Drive is at the top of the list, or across from First Boot Device.
Press the Enter key.

Now use the Up or Down Arrow key to highlight -> Save and Exit, and press the Enter key.

Don't have your Restoration Disk in the optical drive?
That's OK. Open the drive, put it in.
Now press the CTRL, ALT, and DELete keys AT THE SAME TIME.
This will restart the computer.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

I just finished installing Win 8 on a Compaq evo ultra slim after restarting I get error code 0x0000005d what can I do , is my motherboard not compatible its a pentium 4


Go to BIOS, find option 'Data Execution Prevention', and enable it. Moreover, enable option called 'Virtualization Technology (VT)' feature, in a case; you are trying to install Windows 8 from virtualization software like oracle or VMWare.

How to enable above option

To enter in BIOS, restart computer and on very first screen find a message like this:

'DEL to enter setup'

'Press Esc to Enter Setup'

'BIOS Configuration: F2'

'F10 to Enter Setup'

Carefully find any message on your screen and press respective key to enter in BIOS.

Once you enter in BIOS setting, go to Advanced Options and select Processor then No Execute Memory Protection, if not, then Security > Options and Select Execute Disable. Change this to 'Enable' or 'On'.

Save changes and Exit Bios Setting if you perform Windows 8 installation in a new PC, otherwise move on to next step

Enable Virtualization Technology (VT) feature

Go to BIOS setting by following above-mentioned steps. Go to Performance options. Change the Virtualization feature to 'Enable' or 'On'. Save changes and Exit BIOS setup. Proceed to next step if your system supports the security feature. This is how you can solve the issue.

How do i open bios in american megatrends


As the computer is booting watch the screen it'll say something akin to
press F10 or DEL to enter setup F2 to enter the boot menu.

It will be the F10, Del and sometimes F12 that you're after.

Be careful to read the instructions for the bios, make absolutely sure you
are confident and correct in changing the settings.

If you're not sure quite what you've done, exit without saving changes.
Then try again.

Reset the BIOS on a Compaq server 740 jumpers settings


Don,t do that insatead:
Entering the BIOS Setup menu Entering the BIOS Setup menu requires pressing a specific key at a specific time. If you fail to enter the Setup menu on your first try, repeat the following steps until you are successful:

  2. When the red Compaq logo or blue HP logo screen appears, press the F10 key on the keyboard to enter the Setup menu.

NOTE: An alternate to the above steps, especially if the logo screen disappears too quickly to enter BIOS, is to shut down (turn off) the computer. Wait 30 seconds, turn the power on and press F10 or F1 at the logo screen. Reloading the default settings Complete the following steps to reload the factory installed BIOS Setup settings:
  1. In the BIOS Setup utility, select the Exit tab.
  2. Select Load Setup Defaults .
  3. Select Save Changes and Exit (pressing F5 and the Enter key will also load the Setup Defaults).
