SOURCE: Cannot Load Windows/Windows Setup Does Not Detect Hardrive

I'd repaired many laptops where it's unable to detect the hard drive when installing OS but is able to see the hard drive when in Boot Selection or in ROM Based Setup (Bios Setup Utility).

Most of the time, it's not because of the HARD DRIVE, it's because of the CD-ROM, even though it looks like it's reading fine... In some laptops and MOST of them, if the CD-ROM fails, it will not work properly and will cause the laptop to not detect the hard drive, etc. Make sure that the CD-ROM is tuck in tightly and locked. Try removing it and then putting it back in.

Well, you will have to try harder to remember it. Failing that, you will need to take it to an HP certified Service Center to have the password erased.

Keeps freezing after loading windows xp, won't allow me to use any apps or open anything


if you cant afford to get it repaired, then check the processor, hdd, ram slots to ensure that they are all in their fixed possitions,

the problem may be that a module of ram has come loose or your processor has, if they haven't then get yourself a digital multimeter and learn about computer electronics,, although buying a new computer maybe the quickest option.....

Startup problem


If you are getting a Blue screen repeatedly and you can't start up to windows in any custom setting ( from f8 start up menu ) one way to solve the problem is to Use the restore disc or windows installation cd or dvd to install windows into the computer or perform a repair installation if a windows already exists on the computer and the setup can find it.

how to perform a repair installation

this is for xp, but its similar on 2000 and on vista.

insert your Windows XP Setup CD, and restart your computer.

1.When the Press any key to boot from CD message is displayed on your screen, press a key to start your computer from the Windows XP CD.

if not then the computer is not set to start up from a cd, you can either enter the setup / bios to change that setting OR right when you power up the computer look at the screen it will say what button to press in order to enter boot menu or bios, it will very likely be button F12 or similar, it should say on the screen when you power on.

if it doesn't, then you need to go into the bios and change the boot order so that the computer starts from the CD first.

after that you should be able to start from the cd and install the OS (Operating system, eg.Windows)

here's some info on how to work the bios: http://www.whitecanyon.com/how-to-change-boot-order.php


Repeat step 1 when you have changed the boot order.

2.Press ENTER when you see the message To setup Windows XP now, and then press ENTER displayed on the Welcome to Setup screen.

3.Do not choose the option to press R to use the Recovery Console.

4.In the Windows XP Licensing Agreement, press F8 to agree to the license agreement.

5.Make sure that your current installation of Windows XP is selected in the box, and then press R to repair Windows XP.

6.Follow the instructions on the screen to complete Setup.

7.Ones windows is working you will need the drivers for your computer, they are at the makers website, for hp and compaq. www.hp.com for acer http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/downloads.html for all other brands go to google and write Brand drivers. Should get you to the right place. Dell is most likely www.dell.com and so on.
