Why do the following messages: Del:Enter Set UP and F12:Boot Menu appear on screen after the computer is turned on?


These are things that someone with a high level of computer knowledge would use. Setup is for getting into the BIOS (Basic Input Output System) and changing low level settings. The boot menu is for booting off other devices such as a CD or a flash drive instead of your hard drive. This is also used for installing windows or running utilities such as memtest.

Toshiba satellite L300 will not boot up. error code 0xc00000e9


What you can do is attempt to repair the system using System Restore or startup repair. I would suggest trying startup repair first.



Method 1: Use the Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) to run System Restore

======================================================

1. Insert the Windows Vista or Windows 7 installation disc into the disc drive, and then start the computer.

2. Press a key when the message indicating "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD ...". appears.

3. Select a language, a time and currency, and a keyboard or input method, and then click Next.

4. Click Repair your computer.

5. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, choose the drive of your Windows installation and click Next

6. At the System Recovery Options Dialog Box, click on System Restore.

7. Follow the System Restore Wizard instruction as usual and choose the appropriate restore point.

8. Click Finish to restore the system.


Method 2: Startup Repair from the Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE)

======================================================

1. Insert the Windows Vista or Windows 7 installation disc into the disc drive, and then start the computer.

2. Press a key when the message indicating "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD ...". appears.

3. Select a language, a time and currency, and a keyboard or input method, and then click Next.

4. Click Repair your computer.

5. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, choose the drive of your Windows installation and click Next.

6. At the System Recovery Options Dialog Box, click on Repair your computer.

7. (Click the operating system that you want to repair), and then click Next.

8. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Startup Repair.


Hope this helps

HI THERE, I AM TRYING TO INSTALL A FRESH COPY OF WINDOWS ONTO A ANOTHER COMPUTER, I AM USING THE CD'S I ALWAYS USE SO THEY ARE BOOTABLE DISKS, I KEEP GETTING MESSAGE BACK "DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM...


Hello,

First you need to make sure that the CD drive is selected as the first boot device.

You can set that by going into BIOS setup by pressing Del/F2 during system startup OR during startup press F12 and select CD drive from the boot device selection menu.

Press Enter.

See if the system is able to start from the disc.


Thanks

The System Event Log may become full of erroneous IPMI Events reported by the System BIOS. When this occurs, the following message may appear during Power-On Self-Test (POST) and POST cannot continue without user input:

Press F1 to Continue, Press F2 to Setup
If the above message appears during POST, perform the following steps to run BIOS setup and delete the System Event Log:
  1. Boot the server and press the F10 key when prompted to run BIOS Setup.
  2. Select the "Advanced" menu.
  3. Scroll down to "IPMI" and press the ENTER key
  4. Scroll down to the System Event Log and press the ENTER key.
  5. At the "Clear System Event Log" selection, press the ENTER key to toggle between "Enable" and "Disable."
  6. Select "Enable."
  7. Press the F10 key to Save the changes and exit the BIOS Setup.

This just because that there are too many services running in the background of the Operating system

All you need to do is to manually disable maximum of them and disable all the startup Items

Here is how you can do that the easy way

Manual steps to perform a clean boot in Windows XP
Step 1: Start the System Configuration Utility
Click Start, click Run, type msconfig, and then click OK.

The System Configuration Utility dialog box appears.

Step 2: Configure selective startup options
1. In the System Configuration Utility dialog box, click the General tab, and then click Selective Startup.
2. Click to clear the Process SYSTEM.INI File check box.
3. Click to clear the Process WIN.INI File check box.
4. Click to clear the Load Startup Items check box.
5. Click the Services tab.
6. (VERY IMPORTANT DON'T MISS THIS) Click to select the Hide All Microsoft Services check box.
7. Click Disable All, then Click on the startup tab and click on Disable All Button and then click OK..
8. When you are prompted, click Restart to restart the computer.

Step 3: Log on to Windows

You have used the System Configuration Utility to make changes to the way Windows starts.

The System Configuration Utility is currently in Diagnostic or Selective Startup mode, causing this message to be displayed and the utility to run every time Windows starts.

Choose the Normal Startup mode on the General tab to start Windows normally and undo the changes you made using the System Configuration Utility.

Step 4: Optional step to disable features
This step temporarily disables Microsoft features such as Plug and Play, networking, event logging, and error reporting. Also, this step permanently removes the restore points from the computer. The System Restore feature uses restore points to restore your computer to an earlier state. If you remove the restore points, you can no longer restore Windows to an earlier state.
1. Click Start, click Run, type msconfig, and then click OK.

The System Configuration Utility dialog box appears.
2. Click the General tab, click to clear the Load System Services check box, and then click OK.

The System Configuration Utility dialog box appears.
