Question about Compaq Presario R3000 Notebook

Boot screen of death??

I have a Compaq Presario 3000 laptop with P4 and XP OS.

When I power up I get the compaq name along with the F10 option, then it goes to "NO BOOTABABLE CD IN ATAPI CD-ROM" then from there it goes to the boot device screen. It doesn't recognize my xp disc either.

Any ideas?

IT seems to me that If you were to push the delete key or F2 and go into the bios and go into bootup devices and make sure that the first device is cdrom or your Hdd if thats all ok, try to take out your cd rom drive and replace it make sure it is pushed snuggley into place and retry it see if that works,You may also try the F8 keys and start from last known good configuration or safe mode, try that and let me know if it helps you out, thanks Happy Holiday bear001
