This happens because you aren't actually running it. You must change the boot order from the BIOS to have the cd set as first boot device.

    In that case most likely the disk is defective. Simple test: try to boot from it in another pc; if it fails then the disk is dead, if it works then the optical unit is failing. To be sure of that just try to boot from a Linux Live-CD like    http://pclinuxos.com/  . If it fails even with it then you will know for sure - replace it.

Hi there, somebody install windows 8 pro and is not working properly. I want to restore my PC to windows 8, but its asking me to insert recovery media and I don't know what it is


You can download an ISO of your original OS from Microsoft and using your COA install it as a new install. Don't forget to install ALL drivers from the Samsung web site or it won;t work properly.

RESET TO FACTORY SETTINGS


What type of Laptop ? and operating system on it ?

Restoring your laptop to factory settings can take up to an hour to perform, depending upon the type of laptop and operating system on your machine. Prior to performing a system recovery, you should remove any external peripherals, such as ExpressCards, PC Cards, and USB-connected printers and hard drives. Turn on the laptop. Press the "F8" key until the "Advanced Boot Options" screen appears. Select "Repair Your Computer" using the arrow keys. Press the "Enter" key. Choose your "Language," then "Next." Login with an administrator-level username and password. Click "OK. Select "Dell Factory Image Restore," then "Next." Tick the check box next to "Yes, reformat hard drive and restore system software to factory condition." Click "Next." Click on "Finish" after the computer has concluded the factory restoration. b> Restore on an HP b> Insert the HP recovery disk. Restart the computer, and press the "F11" key. Press the "F" key to "reinstall factory settings." If your computer's operating system is damaged, you may only see "perform a full system recovery" as an option. In this case, press "R." Insert any disks if prompted by the restoration program. Otherwise, permit the computer to restart as needed. b> Restore Via Disks (Generic) b> Insert the "Recovery Disk" or "System Recovery Disk." If you have more than one disk, make sure you insert "Disk 1" or "Part 1." Press any key to boot from CD if prompted to do so. Choose a "Full System Restore," "Restore Factory Settings," or another option worded similarly. Confirm that you want to perform the restoration. Press "Next," "Yes," or "OK," as needed. Press "Finish" or "Restart" when prompted by the computer. Hope this helps.

I have a dvd Rom sata connected and an ide connected but the ide won't read. i brought a new ide (same brand LG) i plug it in and the pc won't load up. it says insert disk. i plug the old one in...


You need to check that you don't have the same identifier for 2 IDE drives. you can only have one "Master" and one "Slave" on each IDE channel. If you have 2 of one the computer won't know what it is supposed to be doing with the drive.

Windows 7 won't bootup, has error recovery. it loads files then nothing. screen is black.


Had that problem a few times myself.
Only way I could fix was to restore back to factory condition.
As you boot, watch bottom of screen closely.
depending on system, Should need to press F2, F10, possibly F12, might even be Del.
Most likely you didn't get restore disk, or have made one.
If you do, insert disk before boot up. System should boot to DvD.
Don't forget once restored to update.
Hope this helps

"primary master hard disk error" "press (f4) to run set up" I dont have a restore disk, I am running windows xp. thanks


Hi there,
Before you get started on the restore disk, switch off the PC first and open up the CPU to make sure everything is well connected inside. If needed, unplug and plug the wires back in. See if it works when you start back on the PC. If it doesn't then go for the recovery disk.
Here's the link where you can find the restore disk to download. Hope this helps.

Forgotten password


Hello:

If you want to restore your laptop to factory setting: You should insert your "recovery disk to the CD/DVD ROM. and then shutdown the laptop.

Now; boot your laptop using the recovery disk(boot the laptop from CD/DVD rom) This will no need to input the password: its either you have to restore the system without deleting the existing files or you have to partition and format the hard drive. formatting hard drive you will end up with fresh copy of system files. same as first day when you purchase the laptop.

be sure to install the driver if there's any.

However; if you tend to do by supplying the password. iguess all factory installation has no password. you have to strike the enter without supplying any password.

may this help,
