If bios doesn't work, how do you plan on booting from a floppy? for an "IT specialist" that seems like a basic misunderstanding of how computers work. what's the IT stand for? Intraveinous Tramadol?

if your bios is dead, you need to get to the motherboard and pull the bios chip, put in a new one.

contact your manufacturer to get them to send you a new bios chip, they should be able to do it for a reasonable price. it's just a piece of flash memory.

Problem is that I have just installed a new hard drive in my Acer Aspire 5315 or is it 5135. All this after I have set up in the f2 start up page for the cd rom to be the boot drive and a windows...

This issue may occur if one or more of the following conditions exist:
  • The basic input/output system (BIOS) does not detect the hard disk.
  • The hard disk is damaged.
  • Sector 0 of the physical hard disk drive has an incorrect or malformed master boot record (MBR).

    Note Some third-party programs or disk corruption can damage an MBR.
  • An incompatible partition is marked as Active.
  • A partition that contains the MBR is no longer active.
To solve this, try one or more of the following solutions:
Verify your BIOS settings.. uparrow.gifVerify the computer's BIOS settings to make sure that BIOS lists and recognizes the hard disk.The documentation that came with the hard disk should aid you in doing so.

Use Recovery Console..Use the fixmbr command in the Windows XP Recovery (or relevant OS) Console to repair the MBR of the startup partition. Be sure that a virus isn't present on the system and that their aren't any hardware errors as this could prove fatal to your hard disk.

Computer crashed and says "Missing NTLDR." I have

Hello, before you do anything drastic, my computer crashed and on reboot said the same thing. After panicking (and a cup of tea), I found the bios had defaulted to booting from the wrong disk. All was ok after I set the bios back to boot from the correct disk again.
Hope this helps!
best wishes,

Your hard drive is either crashed or corrupted. You might try checking the bios to see if the drive is showing up. If it is, you can try a repair or a reformat. You will need your restore disk(s).

Boot off the disk and follow the instructions.

Moving the laptop while it's accessing the hard drive or improperly shutting down the computer can corrupt the drive. If kids use it as well, it is a good idea to keep your backups do back up, don't you?

Laptop won't boot. No splash screen. Crash

Take out any USB device from the PC when rebooting: some BIOSes will incorrectly try to boot off them.

If that doesn't work, enter the BIOS Setup (F2 or Del key at boot) and find the Boot Devices menu, confirm that the highest-priority one is "Internal HDD" (or the name of your internal hard disk).

How to install windows on a new hard disk


You need to have the Windows Installation disc and also the license to be able to install a new copy of Windows.

First step is to boot into the CD/DVD. Set the boot priority of your computer to the CD/DVD drive via the BIOS utility. You usually hit F5 once the computer boots up. And then Boot Device Priority. Press Esc and then save the settings.
After you are able to boot in the CD, follow the screen prompts until you go into the partition screen. I would advise that if you only have one hard disk, partition it into two. One is for the system and another is for the data. This is to make sure that even if your windows crash, you can still retrieve your files saved under the second partition. Finalize the installation, wait for the process to continue and then reboot.

Take note that you need to run Windows Update after the installation. This is to ensure that your version is fully patched. Do not forget to install an anti-virus too for enhanced computer protection.

Aspire 9500 doesn't start - cursor and drive indicator blinks

Generally the bios setting will be set to check the primary Hard disk for the Operating system and then move to the CD/DVD drive . It looks like your system is not finding the hard disk. Thats why its moving on the CD drive and trying to read it.

Possible issues :

1) Hard Drive crash
Solution : Nothing much. You need to replace the hard drive and reinstall the OS.
2) Hard Drive connection issue.
Solution : Open the chasi and try to figure out if the hard disc is properly connected.
3) Corrupted OS or boot file
Solution : Try to repair the OS use the OS cd and run the repair option.
4) Bios setting to treat CD drive as the primary media.
Solution : Use the F10 option in the Bios to change the primary Media.

Rate the Solution accordingly...
