BOOTMANAGER IS MISSING


There are a number of possible causes for BOOTMGR errors, including the most common "BOOTMGR is missing" error message.

The most common reasons for BOOTMGR errors include corrupt and misconfigured files, hard drive and operating system upgrade issues, corrupt hard drive sectors an outdated BIOS and damaged or loose IDE cables

Anothe reason you might see BOOTMGR errors is if your PC is trying to boott from a hard drive or flash drive that is not properly configured to be booted from. In other words, it's trying to boot from a
non-bootable source.


This also would apply to media on an optical drive or floppy drive that you're trying to boot from.

make sure there are no disks in cd floppy usb drives


Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE)) make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

if its a flat ribbon 40 pin IDE it will be the fist to fail


make sure all power and data leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs


data and power to travel through every working device and to continue its cycle and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error


also make sure you have set it boot from you hard drive in BIOS


The latest versions of Windows, including Vista and 7, use the Windows Boot Manager to read the boot configuration files and data in order to load your Windows Desktop.


If any of these files are corrupted or damaged, you will see a "BOOTMGR is missing" error. Fortunately, you can use a number of Windows tools to repair or replace the BOOTMGR or any related file that may be the cause of the problem.


Insert your Windows installation CD disk in your computer's CD drive and restart the computer.


Press "F8" repeatedly while the computer boots up.

This command enters the "Advance boot options" screen.


Select the "Repair my computer" option and then press "Enter."

The System Recovery Options screen opens.


Select the "Startup Repair" option at the top of the list and click "Next."

The utility will scan your system for the cause of the BOOTMGR problem and repair it.


Hope this helps

For psp what does bricked mean and how do you unbrick it


BRICKed PSP is a state where its firmware (or system) no longer functions due to corruption either because of hack attempt or interrupted update of firmware. Depending on your PSP model and Motherboard, unbricking can be possible and (worst) impossible.
If you can give me the following, I may be able to help you.
1.) PSP Make (Slim or Phat) 2.) PSP Motherboard/Mainboard 3.) Last CFW installed before it bricked

You may also try doing this to unbrick you PSP.
1. Remove your battery from the PSP. 2. Put back your battery and charge it (to make sure it won't shut down while doing this) 3. Press "R" and hold it and switch on your PSP, if this fail, repeat 1 & 2 and try number 4 4. Press "R" and "L" and hold it and switch on your PSP.
If your PSP boots on Recovery Menu, you can unbrick it and play with it again.

I run Dell Inspiron 1525 , it boots well , but can't open any windows program,


Hello.

You probably have an operating system problem with corrupted files.

Boot your system to Safe Mode (press F8 repeatedly when powering on). Go to System Restore and choose a date when your system worked OK. Note: with System Restore, all your updates will roll back to that date. Follow the process.

Hope this helps.

GATEWAY GM5094E Athlon dual core, NO POST TEST BEEP-NO BOOT SCREEN, fan worksHD light comes ON, but no boot.


Being no test beep, I'm saying motherboard. Try removing & replacing ram sticks to see if it boots. Other problems may be simply a bad power supply. Did you test the video with a vid card another vid port? Might want to try that first. It could be you lost the video.

Otherwise, u shld count on d warrenty period of ur system.

Operating system not found


It sounds like it could be a corrupt OS, or your hard drive could've decided to pack it in.

Before you panic - (been there/done that). Try to get your system to the boot menu by doing the following:

Turn on your system - once you see the logo, begin to tap the f8 key repeatedly until the boot menu appears. It will give you the option of "Last Known Good Configuration". Select that by using the arrow keys to move the highlight bar up (or down). Press enter - and wait. If there has been a corruption, it may take time.

If that fails, repeat the process and once you get to the menu, select SafeMode. It will probably fail as well but I have seen times when it boots through. If you are able to get into SafeMode, if that works, let me know and we can look at some preventative measures.

Good luck with that
