    There was a power cut and now my PC will not boot. It gets as far as the Windows flag and then restarts. I've tried booting in safe mode, starting windows normally, starting from the command prompt, nothing works.

    I downloaded the 6 XP Pro SP2 boot disks from Microsoft and tried booting from drive A with those. Didn't work, it says 'cannot load biosinfo.ini' 4110 error code.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I am also having a problem booting up my HP Compaq D530.   When I turn the computer on, I am getting a message indicating that it is saving my new settings for the hard drive, CD-ROM..etc.   When I save the settings, it then trys to boot off of a USB.   I have to go into the bios to set and resave the boot order to get it to boot off the hard drive.   Any idea what would be causing this?

In order for your system to boot up it has to insure that all things are working properly, as part of the boot up, the power supply must be good, the mother board must be checked, then the video card and sound card followed by the keyboard board check and then the monitor must be connected. So systematically check these things by taking each and isolating them. Hopefully you have a little background with hardware so that you can accomplish this. These are the most simple things to check. It can be alot more complicated if cables are failing or need to be replaced. One other thing to consider is this a new system or an older system. If its older than 5 years, I say buy a new one or upgrade if possible. If you have an older system and these issue are starting, it a sure thing that other things will happen such as failed hard drives, bad CD Roms, bad diskette drives and the list goes on.

These systems are plagued by 2 faults.
The power supplies die quite often and can become unstable. If it goes into this phase, then the computer will be getting unstable voltage.
The second is much easier to check for.

  1. Remove the top cover of the computer.
  2. Look at the motherboard (fairly closely) at the capacitors (round cylinders sticking up off the board)
  3. If you find any with the tops buldging upwards then you can be assured you have found your problem. The tops should be flat. You may even have some with blackish coloured residue on top.
If you need to, then just gently push any cables aside to allow proper inspection of the board. The main places are near the memory, cpu.

Hope that helps. =)

Hp compaq d530-sff issues

These are network boot cards, basically it's looking for boot options from across your network. You can change the boot options in your BIOS or there is usually a key combination to press that is displayed on screen during boot to shut of the PXE boot of your network card.
