Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS the scroll to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos restart
note this will erase you operating system you will have to have an operating system disk to load it onto you hard drive or create a partition to load another operating system
note after you have loaded the operating system you should go back and change the first boot device to your hard drive
The BIOS is AMI. Under ADVANCED SETUP:
The options listed for 1st,2nd ,3rd Boot device include:
IDE0 means Pri master
IDE1 means Pri slave

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your "((MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE))" make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error even something as small as a faulty electrical extension or fan lead can cause a computer to shutdown

computers need all of the data and electrical current to travel through every working device and to have an end to be able work properly

a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail check all electrical power input and extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working

also check the Cmos battery and computer ram make sure they are securely seated with no dust built up or in the sockets
and you might not have enough RAM random access memory not having enough will cause your computer to run over its maximum limits and can cause the blue screen of death and hang also uninstall some unnecessary programs
hope this helps you

I have installed a SATA SH-S223C on a computer with Windows XP. But now when I try to boot the computer, it freezes on the Windows boot screen until I open the CD tray. Then it will continue on to the...


Do you have any CD in the tray, first would be to remove the disc if present as boot from CD would be first option in BIOS.
Get into the BIOS by pressing the appropriate key some systems it is the DEL key or F2. In bios select Advanced Bios Features.

Select Advanced Bios Features
Hard Disk boot priority,

Select "Bootable add in cards" with keyboard and keep pressing + until it is in the first location.

Set first boot device as Hard Disk and then save and exit BIOS.
F10 is shortcut to do this.

If you need to boot from CD next time just change first boot device to CDROM.

Slow read speed


I suggest you first restore your computer to a previous date when the drive was working propperly *USE SYSTEM RESTORE*

If that doesnt help Run an ant virus scan and Anti spyware scan.

Check the cables connecting the drive in your computer for defect of age and replace if necessary

Check the drive on anoter pc to see if you get the same proplem , if you do then you will need to change the drive as its life span is ending

If it works the something is wrong with your computer, backup you data, Format the hard drive and reinstall windows , your drivers and software and check the drive to see if its working.

if no then the problem is hardware. you might want to considering upgrading


NB.. defragging you hard drive before formatting might help

I have a problem


Take the cover of your computer off again and check all the cables again. Check the cables going to the hard drive. Make sure there is no disk in the drive. If you have a floppy disk drive, make sure there is no disk in it. Make sure the jumper is set properly on the back of the cd-rom drive. The jumper should set to 'slave' or 'cd'. In some cases the jumper should be off. Let me know if this helps.
