If your computer is not set to start up from a cd, you can either enter the setup / bios to change the boot order settings or right when you power up the computer look at the screen it may say what button to press in order to enter boot menu, it will very likely be button F12 or similar, it should say on the screen when you power on.

If you do see boot menu and you can get to the boot menu by pressing the button, then select the cd drive and press enter to start from it. The computer will attempt to start from the cd, if you get a message to press any key to start from cd, go ahead and press a button.

if it doesn't, then you need to go into the bios and change the boot order so that the computer starts from the CD first.

after that you should be able to start from the cd.

here's some info on how to work the bios:

On Hp, its generally F2 to enter bios. The page above has instructions and pictures to show you how to adjust the boot order, it may look somewhat different on your computer but the settings should have the same names / labels.

I have win 7 on hp elitebook 8530p and i got the 0xc000000e error and i changed my boot order and i still cant boot from my cd rom

If you take the hard drive out, can the laptop boot from its DVD drive? If the laptop can boot up from DVD drive, then you need to reformat the hard drive before you install the Windows 7 using your DVD drive.

This indicates a hard drive problem or windows files has been corrupted. If you have a cd installation disc load your operational system, if that fails have the hardware tested for possible replacement.

Hp hdx16 no power

The power supply charger should be checked for correct voltage, If it's dead it will need to be replaced. Remove main battery first, now turn on! if no change, you will need a professional to assess.

I have an HP HDx16 laptop that seems to run very hot. Is there a way to check this problem or increase the cooling capabilities

If you are notusing your laptop on a flat surface, it may be obstructing the cooling vents onthe bottom of the laptop. Your laptop fanmay be faulty and not spinning freely, in this case replace the fan.
Check the fan and heat sink assembly and remove the dust, loosen the dust anduse a can of compressed air to clear away the dust. A laptop fanassisted cooling pad may solve your problem

I want setup windows xp my ibm thinkpad t23 i can pot cd & restart press f12 but not start setup plz halp me haw can i setup windows xp my ibm thinkpad t23

If your trying to reinstall a new copy of Windows in your computer then first thing you need to do is change the Boot sequence of your computer so it will load the Windows CD you inserted then it will run the set up.

To change Boot sequence:
1. Go to BIOS - Press F1 or F2 (depends on model of your computer) immediately after you turn you computer on
2. Go to Boot Menu on the top of the window
3. Change your Boot priority - make sure your dvd drive is your first or primary boot.
4. Press F10 to save and exit.

Make sure you have your Windows CD inserted before pressing F10 coz your computer will restart and will loadautomatically load and run the Windows Setup

Note: If a message "Press any key to boot from CD" appear on a black screen press any key to start the set up

Your Feedback is greatly appreacited.

Hope this information will be helpful. Thank you for using FIXYA.

You can format and re-install Windows using your Windows installation CD.
Boot up your Toshiba with the Windows installation CD in the CD drive and follow the on screen instructions.

Problem in the HP Palvalion laptop dv6607nr model

Try using a Windows installation disk instead of your recovery disk. If the Windows disk will boot and begin the installation process then you most likely have a faulty recovery disk. If it gives you an error there may be a malconfiguration in the bios.

Good Luck
