It's doubtful that this issue was caused by someone pressing a key regardless of when they pressed it or their age ;) . This sounds more like a Hard Drive issue from a major virus. Make sure there are no "system" disks in the computer when turning on. Also, unplug all USB and other peripheral equipment from the computer prior to powering up. Some peripherals don't work and play well with others. There are small driver programs installed on all memory sticks (aka flash drives, thumb drives, etc.). These can cause boot-up problems as well. So, try unplugging everything that is not absolutely necessary and power up. That's your best bet and the easiest to try.
Good Luck!

Motherboard won't recognize hard drive. won't book from windows 7 disc


Hello you have to enter the bios option to change the bootup settings.
Press the DEL or F2 button to enter the bios.
Next select the boot option, and make the DVD drive as first boot device, harddrive second.
Leave the bios by saving the settings you just made.

Place the windows disc in the dvd drive, and reboot.
The screen turns black, and a small text comes on top:
Press any key to boot from disk, use the space button.
Now the installation will start.
Remember to format the harddrive, when prompt.

The drivers can be downloaded here:

No operating system found can't boot from usb there is no boot from usb option


Did you try pressing F8 key at boot up?

  • 1

    Turn on your laptop and look at the first screen that comes up as soon as it is on. This screen will tell you "Press x key to enter setup", replacing "x" with the actual BIOS access key. It's usually "Del" or "F2" on Toshiba systems.

  • 2

    Press the key firmly and quickly before the screen goes away. If you do not react quickly enough, you will miss the window of opportunity to enter the BIOS. On Toshiba systems, this window of opportunity is somewhere between two to five seconds.

  • 3

    Navigate your BIOS configuration screen to the "Boot" tab. It is usually just before "Exit."

  • 4

    As the first boot device, select "USB," or "USB HDD." If you have a "USB ZIP" option, you might be able to boot from it, so select that if you have no other choice.

  • 5

    Press the button for "Save and Exit" in your BIOS. The correct button is usually F10.

    You must enter the "BIOS" at start up (sometimes called SetUp). Press F2 or F8 or F11 or other function key that will be required by your computer. Should tell you at boot.

    Enter the BIOS settings, find the boot sequence and edit it. remember to save your changes.

    BE VERY CAREFUL WHAT YOU SELECT!

    My acer 532h netbook will not boot,none of the safe modes either


    switch it on then press the key that takes it in to the BIOS or SETUP it will tell you on the start up screen, Should be "F2" when your in the bios use the arrow keys to move through the options.
    More across to exit and press enter then go down to set/get or load system defaults press enter again then save & exit & the system will re-boot.
    if it dosn't boot then do the same again but this time press the boot menu option on start up "F12" or "F8" i think, i should give you a list from the list select the hard drive & hit enter.
    Let me know what it says & i will be able to help you more.

    Selecting booting device


    Normally with the new laptops you have to press F2 to access your bios settings, you will definitely be able to select the boot device from there.

    If F2 does not work startup your laptop and watch the screen, there must be an option that will tell you which key to press to enter bios.

    If the screen comes and goes to fast for you, press the pause button on your keyboard so you can read it at your own time and do your actual selection.

    Hope it helps.
