Hi,
the system is looking for a certain file or a command prompt.
1:) try re-installing your operating system, this will overwrite any corrupt or deleted files. ** backup important data first**
Although you should get the option to:- leave existing file system intact.
2:) if this is a recent problem, you could restore the computer ( windows XP ) to an earlier date. before the problem occured.
3:) enter the bios to ensure the computer is booting from HDD first.
Hope this helps.

Mike @ compurepair.

A7V400-MX will not boot


In such cases its practical to change the SMPS with a working power supply of the same rating and then trying it out. If with the new power supply it works fine then cange your SMPS. Also make sure that all cables are snug tight and generally ree from dust. The same applies to your RAM too................sodeep

Boot problem with Dell Optiplex GX150


To reinstall Xp from the CD you need to press F2 and go into the BIOS then select the boot order configuration and make the CD the first boot device and the hard disk the second boot device.
After installing XP, if you wish you can go back into the BIOS and change the boot order to boot from the hard disk first.

Acer daulcore processer motherboard model mcp61sm-am


ok fair enough.... boot the computer and watch the screen.... you need to watch for the key to enter setup.... delete key seems to be the most popular but i've had computers use f1 and f2, f11 and f12.... if it goes to fast hit pause as it gets to the point where it tells you the key to hit to enter setup.... after you are in change the boot sequence to boot to cdrom..... hit f10 and save the changes... reboot to the cd and continue with your install

Ax480 boot issue


if u haven't overclocked it yet (goes easy to 2.4 to 2.6 some more, don;t go over 1.7V though) then you should single out the problem part by booting with: 1) try 1 memory stick only 2) safe mode 3) only necessary cards, possibly gr.card only now as we all know the quality of Microsofts products, try installing a fresh copy of your legal windows OS on any other disk or even the same with the separate installation option if you must. Simply, there is no better way to find the problem. Windows xp is rather funny lately with its updates... Good luck m8
