Boot failure message is shown because you have uninstalled any important drivers,deleted any system files or it is a virus infection problem. You need to recover your windows from windows vista DVD. Check it to your dealer.

Hp blue screen says "entering setup ..." but it is locked up instead


ok, an A6512p0b PC desk top.
VISTA.
HP media kit,? a real kit not using home made kit? from HP.
New HDD causes the F11 key to go dead (or F10 older PC)
F11/10, is the VIRTUAL install CDs/
HP put the install CDs in its own hidden install partition.
making the f10/11 key run that virtual CD installer.

now you have a new HDD, and guess what, all that is gone.
so step 2 is what, REAL MEDIA KIT. from HP.

HP has a huge pages on this, every step every way possible to restore, at hp.com ever see HP.com?

what worries me is this statement by you/'
"but cannot open BIOS." this is serious all screens must work.

you can remove the HDD and CD drives and BIOS always works
BIOS IS IN ROM, it always works or it has very very serious problems if it is DEAD. BIOS DEAD.
the screen is not dead, you see its works.
like:
  1. PSU bad.
  2. CPU overheating or heat sink bad or fell off.
  3. memory bad, try 1 stick at a time?
  4. other things plugged in to mobo that are shorted..
  5. mobo bad.
  6. GPU card bad or has problems if it has one. see #4
  7. desktops can have lots of things added, i cant see yours. inside/.

the correct kits are from HP, here.
comes with all drivers, and all HP apps. and is turn key.

there are other ways to do this, using MS disks and long day of work.
ill not teach that here.

I have a HP Pavilion Elite m 9357c that willnot boot up. The screen goes black and says Disk Boot Failure,Insert system Disk and press enter


If it happens that you are prompted by the following error message "DISK BOOT FAILURE INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER", "No system disk", it means that the computer did not find the operating system to start (boot).

Causes:


A diskette or CD has remained in the drive

Check out if any diskettes, CD-ROM or DVD-ROM are present in respective drives, remove them and restart your computer

The boot sequence is incorrect BIOS



Enter the BIOS setup of your computer and edit the boot (boot sequence) so that the computer starts primarily on drive C:
A new hard drive was installed

In the case that a new hard drive has been installed, this message is quite normal.
Just insert the correct CD to install the system (usually Windows), then restart, while making sure the CD-ROM is first in the defined in the BIOS setup as first boot sequence.
The hard drive is unplugged

Open the system unit and check that power cable of the hard drive is properly connected.
Corrupted system files

It may happens that some system files needed to boot the computer have been deleted /damaged or that the boot sector of the disc is damaged.

To determine this, start the computer with a system disk or CD-ROM installation of Windows (via the Recovery Console), and once started, type Dir C: to check if the contents of drive C: are accessible. If its ok then the problem comes from missing or damaged files, then you just have to run the command:

fdisk /mbr
sys c:



Note that before any restoration of the boot sector with the command fdisk / mbr, (supposing that there is a virus), it is recommended to use an antivirus running under DOS, such as
f-prot.

Damaged disk

If the hard disk or a partition is damaged:
If it detected in the BIOS setup, there is a chance that it is
not out of service.
If it is, try reinstalling the system through the installation CD, in order to reformat or recover the partition using a utility.

When I switch on my pc,it tells me disk boot failure insert system disk and press enter. I have XP proffessional sp3 but only have a xp home disk.


If your computer has just been formatted, your computer might require you to insert the boot CD

to be able to run it. You might hence get the error message Disk Boot Failure- Insert disk and

press enter displayed on the screen every time you will try to run it. This might be linked

to:

* 1. The boot options not correctly set in BIOS
* 2. A non bootable CD is found in your CD drive
* 3. You do not possess any bootable device
* 4. You have installed a new hard disk
* 5. The hard disk is not properly plugged
* 6. Your system files have been infected

Unable too logg into the system


sounds like a hard disk issue try booting from the original s install disk . the see if you can reapir the installtion
if it still can recognise the disk you probably have a hard disk problem. Eithe buy or get a techical person to call out and check the hard disk for you.
if you have win xp boot to the cd then choose repair at the first menu , when you get to the dos screen type in

chkdsk /f and let it do what it must to complete.

hope this helps
