    Thanks for the advise, however I have already done all that you are suggesting, with the e-machine there's is the shift-F10 to get into the settings I changed boot order to boot from CD but again like I said it just cycles over and over the same screens, when I choose "safe mode" the system does respond by shutting down then rebooting but still opens up the screen with the same message, RTL8139(A/B/C)/RTL8130. Press shift-F10 to configure.

    As I sa I have done this and tried all five different options, safe mode, safe mode with networking, safe mode with command prompt, last known good configeration setting or start normally. all bring up the first window with the RTL message, my hair is getting thin and I'm runing low on the valium so any other suggestions welcome.

    Thanks

    Have tried with xp disc same response, when pressing the shift-F10 I get to change only these four options(1)Network Boot Protocol, either PXE or RPL (2)Boot Order,Int 18th,Int19th,PnP/BEV(BBS),ROM Disable (3)Show Config Message, Enable, Disable (4)Show Message Time, 8seconds,5seconds,3seconds.

    There are no other options I have tried all the different ones I cn but still remains the same,

    I presume when it has been suggested to boot to CD first that is the option 2 and have tried all four options in there so still no further forward, am now getting VERY low on the valium.

    any other help appreciated.

  • johnmac1 Jan 10, 2008

    SORRY but have tried all that has been suggested, it just refuses to Boot at all. even using last known good configuration does not work, it will not run the CD to load from that it will not load using the default configuration, it just continues to cycle through the same screens over and over.

    Is there any other way to change or get into the bios settings, cannot use any of the standard recovery methods system restore etc because I cannot get beyond the screens being displayed, can't get into DOS or anything, thanks for your help but nothing appears to work, looks like it is going to end up with it's other dead PCs friends in PC heaven.

How can I change boot sequence in Compaq Evo N410c?


You need to access your BIOS configuration. 1. To do this, shutdown your computer and boot it by pressing the power button. 2. You need to hit F10 when the computer first powers up in order to get into BIOS (Note that the key is usually different for different computers. If F10 doesnt work, try F2, F12, Delete or F9. 3. Once in the BIOS, you should find the boot sequence option.
Hope this helps!
