Gigabyte G41MT-S2P can't boot on cd/dvd rom (installing win7)


If both the HDD and the CD/DVD drive contain bootable devices, the BIOS will usually ask just before starting the HDD boot, while still on the black screen, "Press any key to boot from CD". If you don't watch for this (it's usually at the very bottom or top of the screen), then the system will boot to the HDD.

How to enable bluetooth in bios setting in acer 4736Z?


HI...........................

Problem with the Mac Laptops How to enable bluetooth in bios setting in acer 4736Z?

SOLUTION NO 1:

Check your device manager first, if your Bluetooth driver not installed properly, then you have to installed it first. If you don't have that driver you can download it from internet. You have to specify the model no. of your laptop and Bluetooth after that you can download and install the driver and use your Bluetooth. If you find any difficulty in installing driver then there are web sites where you can find the whole procedure step by step.

SOLUTION NO: 2

I think you have installed a wrong driver or your driver has not been installed properly. You should check first in device manager for installed driver, if it is installed then you can see in a list below in that and if not then you have to install that first. You can download a Bluetooth driver for your machine from internet. You have to out your model no. of your laptop and you'll find it. After installing you can see the driver in device manager or it can also be seen in a icon near task bar.

SOLUTION NO: 3

Install the driver of your Bluetooth from a cd or download it from internet. After downloading install it in your system and it will work fine. If this does'nt work for you, then get an external Bluetooth it come with its own driver so you don't need to install it from internet. If you don't know the procedure of installation then follow the instruction in cd or online, it will help you in installation.


HOPE THIS SOLUTIONS IS HELPFUL TO YOU...................

GOOD LUCK.......................

I have 1 note book LG X120 with windows 7. when im trying to install Windows XP proffessional through a USB CD ROM its showing the following Message * To specify additional SCSI adapters, CD-ROM...


Hi lionking2022!

Since this is a USB CD_ROM, you need change some settings in the bios for it to be detected and the system will actually boot from it.

1. You enter your BIOS

2. Look for the tab that will contain IDE settings

3. Change it to AHCI

4. Save and Exit

You may know try to boot from cd-rom and install your windows xp.

After the setup or installation is finished don't forget to changed it back to SATA or whatever the setting was.

Hope this will help.

Thank you for using Fixya,

My computer has a black screen and says "Reboot and select Proper Boot device or insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and Press a key." Im not that computer savy. Help!


Your computer tries to load an Operating System from several devices:
* the 'A:' diskette
* the 'C:' disk-drive
* the 'D:' CD-ROM
* any USB device
* via your network-port, "talking" to a "boot-server" on your network.

What probably has happened is that you have no disk in 'A:', and no disk in 'D:', and your disk-drive in 'C:' could *NOT* be read, i.e., your disk-drive has "died", and so your computer says "insert media".

Take your computer to a qualified technician, for complete trouble-shooting.

When I switch the laptop on I get the following message and 2 beeps:'no bootable device(s) selected' 'strike F1 to retry boot F2 for set-up utility' i then retry the boot but get the same message...


I'm not an expert, but try getting into the BIOS when booting up (sounds like F2 on yours) and look for where you can specify the BOOT ORDER. It is usually First Device - Floppy, Second Device - HDD (Hard Disk Drive) and maybe no third device if not CD-ROM, etc. My desktop is currently CD-ROM first and HDD second. As long as I don't leave a cd or dvd in a drive, no worries. I am not even sure that a music cd or a movie dvd would hurt anything - it might skip the CD-ROM at theat point and still boot from the HDD as it should. Thinking some more, your BIOS might be corrupted and need to be reflashed if possible; or maybe your CMOS battery is weak or dead. Looks like a watch "coin" type battery on the motherboard (at least in a desktop pc).

When compuetr starts no boot device available but BIOS seen


If there is no HDD or any other boot device the BIOS will always be present. This problem occurs if you haven't installed any Operating System on the HDD. So when the computer is booting it finds no booting device files and that's why showing error message. Format your HDD and install OS to boot smoothly. But if you have HDD with OS still this error happening then it might be a reason of corrupt system files which are required during booting or it may be the case that your HDD is damaged and cannot boot from there. If your HDD is damaged and still showing on the BIOS it may happen because it is detecting as a device but the as the device is damaged is cannot boot from it. Check these steps to solve your issue.

Dell Dimension 8300 - Can't Boot from XP Disk


When in doubt do without, that is remove the new hard drive cable and power, remove the DVD drive and try loading booting the XP from just this CD device. Enter the BIOS and check if the system sees the device. If it's not found in the BIOS then you'll never boot anything. Address it as the Primary device on the cable (I don't use CS) and see if the BIOS sees it.
If you get CD device seen in the BIOS then try to boot the CD in it. If it boots then power off and connect up your 40gb drive (optioned as Primary) on the other cable. Now power on as check the BIOS for the drive and the DVD device. If both are seen then boot the cd and try to load XP. After it's up and running install the other CD device as a Slave on one of the cables.

I CAN'T boot from CD on SATA


Hi,
Have you set the jumpers on the SATA drive to PRIMARY DRIVE?(first drive)
Google a picture if you are unfamiliar with this. Its simple to change.

The most likely problem is that your bios is not set up to boot to that drive first.(or at all)
Go into your bios (it usually says which key to press on start up in the black screen) it could be F1 key or DEL key or F2.
Once in, be very careful not to mess anything up. You can always choose 'DO NOT SAVE CHANGES and EXIT' without worrying you have done anything wrong. Nothing will save any changes you have made, unless you specifically tell it to save, ok ?

Look through the bios options until you see 'first boot device' (its probably under 'advanced options)use arrow keys and ENTER and ESC to move around in the screens.
you can change which device your computer boots to first. (by highlighting it and then using your = and - keys.)in your case, you want to select 1) sata CD drive 2) hard drive and you can make your 3rd device your other CD if you like.(if this is in fact an ALL IN ONE SATA DVD reader and writer, then it should be the ONLY DVD or CD on your system.)
use your arrow buttons to move around in the bios settings.
you can always exit without saving and leave your system the way it was.*S*
But once you have it set to boot in this order correctly ESCape out of that screen until you see SAVE AND EXIT
Your computer will then reboot and you should be in business.
I trust this is the correct solution. If not please submit specifics about your computer model and the model of CD you are installing.Good luck

BIOS and Sony CD-RW CRX300E


Your Sony CD-RW is an ATAPI CD-ROM for the purpose of your BIOS. Without you specifying the motherboard brand and model, it is hard to tell you what your issue could be.

Nearly all PC motherboards made after 1995 will allow you to boot from the CD. Enter the BIOS setup screen by pressing, during POST, <DEL> or <CTR>-S (Gateway), <F1> or <F2> and look for boot sequence. Some MB's have a boot sequence key you can press to select the boot device for that boot instance only.

If you are trying to say that you have an ATAPI CD-ROM and the Sony CD-RW, then check your master/slave/cable select jumper settings on the device. Each IDE channel can have at most one master and one slave.

CD ROM Boot


In the BIOS are you able to "discover" the CD-ROM device? There should be a way such that you can specify what devices are connected to the system.

The BIOS version should recognize what devices are attached to the system.

You may need to "flash" (upgrade) the BIOS. Now a days, BIOS upgrades are available on the manufacturer's website.


Hope this helps :) Kindly leave a rating. Thanks..
