Im not able to boot from os cd the bios can see rom drive and hard drive but im not able to boot iv'e tried f12 but no joy can you help?


hi there.

If you go to the bios on start up and select cd rom drive as your primary boot and then restart. Your computer will then try to boot first from the cd rom drive and second from the hard drive. If it fails to boot from the disk then this would lead me to believe that either the disk is unreadable by the drive or that the cd rom drive itself is unable to read the disk.

We have desktop xp and it is running on safemode how do we take this off


You can't take off Safe Mode, it's there for your protection. However, if you want to boot into Normal Mode, shut down the computer. When you hear the computer beep, start tapping F8 on your keyboard. Keep tapping it until you reach the Advanced Options menu. Once you've reached this, just select "Start Windows Normally".
Now it will boot you into Windows on Normal Mode, not Safe Mode.

Boot to Advance Boot Options by tapping F8 while booting your computer. Once you are in the Advance Boot Options menu, Choose "Repair Your Computer". That should initialize the startup repair. This should give you a headstart. Post here if you need further help..
