This is a software problem maybe the operating system should be corrupted. You need a recovery disk get a windows CD to recover load the windows CD to the CD drive once the laptop required you to boot CD press any key to boot. Wait until the system required you to repair the windows.

How can I fix a windows failed to start problem? what is a file : \Boot\BCD STATUS : 0XC000000f?


Try F8 and safe mode or if that doesn't work, insert your OS disc and try to repair your OS, then check the hdd for errors, if it is not too late!

FILE \boot\BCD STATUS 0xc000000d error while attemting to read boot config data


Boot from your original Windows media (DVD) and when the screen asks, repair your PC, choose this option and let it scan and fix your drive. It will run CHKDSK and it may take some time. When finished, reboot and test.

OS will not boot up. unable to start in any mode and also unable to do chkdsk. doing an OS will not boot test, results in sata error uncorrectable data or is read only


My best guess is that your hard drive has failed or is failing. Replace it. Boot to your Windows CD/DVD and install windows. Then add your old drive as a second disk and, if you are lucky, you can copy your data from it before it fails completely.

Good luck. I hope this helps.

It is sayingpri master disk s.m.a.r.t.status bad back up and replace . and wen i try to boot it is saying fileootcd status;oxc000000f.info an error occuredwhile attemting to read the boot configuration...


This error is indicating a physical problem with your hard disk drive or occasionally with the hard disk drive controller.
The S.M.A.R.T. status error means that there is a physical problem - not a windows installation problem.
The second error you are getting during start-up is secondary the the hard drive problems. The system cannot read some of the information on the hard drive. The area is cannot read contains necessary operating system information.
You need a new hard drive for this computer. If it is still under warranty then call or email Gateway support so that they can send a replacement drive. If not then you will need to purchase a new drive. If a new drive does not solve then problem then the problem is on the motherboard.
You did not specify which model laptop this is. Most of Gateway's laptops have built-in cdrom drives, but a few do not. The systems that do not will accept an external cd-rom drive, and should have been shipped with an external cd-rom drive so that it can be reloaded. You will need a cdrom drive to load your operating system onto your new hard disk drive once you replace it.

Advent 4211c will not turn on atall it says windows boot manager...windows failed to start and i do not have a windows installatin disk. how can i sort this problem out if atall .this is the only thing...


This is a boot config problem.

The fix will require that you have the Windows XP cd. Maybe you can borrow one from a friend in order to fix this. Once you have the cd, navigate to the following link for step by step instructons.

Every tine i start my computer it sais A DISK READ ERROR HAS OCURED PRES CTRL+ALT+DEL


Check your boot drive, it cannot find an operating system. If in windows could be corrupt files or hard drive is disconnected in the system.

You can check this by booting first in cdrom with a bootable cd, if you got into DOS with command prompt. Your harddrive is at fault.

Hope it helps
