Take out the battery and do a power drain.
Restart the notebook and try to go to BIOS. If you are able to access the BIOS, do a BIOS default by pressing F5 key and then save by tapping F10 key. DISCONNECT ALL THE EXTRA PERPHERALS CONNECTED TO THE PC. Still wont work, send it for a repair.
If unable to go to BIOS, turn off the notebook and turn it upside down, you will see a lid wich has round disc like symbols, open it and take out the HDD and put it back in, close the lid. Then open a lid which has a rectangular structure and then reseat the RAM, close the lid after the reseat. Restart the notebook, if not then you need to send it for repair.

Shrey

Sounds like you may have to change the boot up drive in your bios.
To enter you bios, you have hit Del or an F key as your computer begins to boot up (watch the screen, it should tell you).
Once you've entered your bios, you have to find where in the bios it allows you to set the order of boot devices. This is commonly under "Power Up" options or on the more recent BIOSes, it'll be under "Boot Devices." Once you're there, refer to the on screen instructions on how to change the order. The most common ways are using the page up/down keys, the +/- keys or the left and right arrows. Set your Seagate Barracuda to be the first place it boots from and you should be able to boot from it.

My XP will not boot when my Hitachi 1TB External USB 2.0 drive is connected. It gets as far as showing the Pentium screen and stalls.


Its probably trying to boot from your external drive.

Go into your bios and reset your boot setting to HDD0 as your first boot device, Disk drive 0 second and floppy third, unless you want to boot from an external drive. That being the case select an appropriate order.

If the bios shows your external HDD as HDD0, then you have to work out which is the drive carrying the operating system and set that to your first boot device.

To get into the bios, watch the boot screen for a key to hit to enter setup, normally its the "DEL" key.

WHAT KEY DO YOU HIT ON BOOT UO TO REACH BIOS


normally on any PC it's F2 or DEL, some others do use random F-keys. try pressing TAB on boot up to show the post messages, then it should tell you on-screen what key it uses.

Hope this helps :)

The master boot record maybe be corrupted or virus infected.
To fix the MBR, boot up with your DOS disk and type fdisk /mbr
Then install XP, and delete all partitions and then create a new partition, then do a full NTFS format on the new partition.

Startup problem


If you are getting a Blue screen repeatedly and you can't start up to windows in any custom setting ( from f8 start up menu ) one way to solve the problem is to Use the restore disc or windows installation cd or dvd to install windows into the computer or perform a repair installation if a windows already exists on the computer and the setup can find it.

how to perform a repair installation

this is for xp, but its similar on 2000 and on vista.

insert your Windows XP Setup CD, and restart your computer.

1.When the Press any key to boot from CD message is displayed on your screen, press a key to start your computer from the Windows XP CD.

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

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 and install the OS (Operating system, eg.Windows)

here's some info on how to work the bios: http://www.whitecanyon.com/how-to-change-boot-order.php


Repeat step 1 when you have changed the boot order.

2.Press ENTER when you see the message To setup Windows XP now, and then press ENTER displayed on the Welcome to Setup screen.

3.Do not choose the option to press R to use the Recovery Console.

4.In the Windows XP Licensing Agreement, press F8 to agree to the license agreement.

5.Make sure that your current installation of Windows XP is selected in the box, and then press R to repair Windows XP.

6.Follow the instructions on the screen to complete Setup.

7.Ones windows is working you will need the drivers for your computer, they are at the makers website, for hp and compaq. www.hp.com for acer http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/downloads.html for all other brands go to google and write Brand drivers. Should get you to the right place. Dell is most likely www.dell.com and so on.
