When i start my pc, it starts well but a page appers telling me to start windows normally. when i click on that then windows starts loading bt after 2 sec the systems gets restarted.


1.You have to do a diagnostics test on your hard drive to check if the there are any bad sectors developed on the hard drive!

2. If your system restart, when you just click your mouse, your system files are probably corrupted and your may have to reinstall the system ie. provided your hard drive has no errors.

Here is an option you can try.
Can you boot your system to "safemode"? & Use the "Dos Prompt" to do a "Check Disk" on your System. ie Run -> "CHKDSK /f/r" (without quotes)

Hope it helps.

You probably need to tell the BIOS to boot from the CD.
I'm not certain about your model, but you can try pressing delete button as it's doing initial start up, to enter bios. It may even display on screen what to press for bios. Then look for boot sequence options, and have the cd be the the first boot device.
If this works, you may see a message saying "press any button to boot from cd" if you don't do this , it will still fail to boot on cd.
If it works out for you, you should change this option back after completeing the install.

My computer can not start. Message: \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFING\SYSTEM file is missing or corrupted. Kindly assist. Thanks.


You need windows CD for this problem to go away
as it clearly states that your windows system file is missing or corrupt

so borrow a windows CD from some one and put it in your CD ROM
then press F10 to get into bios and under advanced boot priority change your first option to CD and restart ,it will ask to boot from CD,press enter and follow on screen instructions

it will ask to reinstall windows or repair,choose repair option and it will repair all the windows files and your system will be fine again

I try update my bio on my ao0751h netbook acer, and doesn't successfully, now my netbook doesn't turn on. How i recovery a bios?


Solution 1: Boot-block BIOS
Modern motherboards have a boot-block BIOS. This is small area of the BIOS that doesn't get overwritten when you flash a BIOS. The boot-block BIOS only has support for the floppy drive.If you have a PCI video card,you won't see anything on the screen because the boot-block BIOs only supports an ISA videocard.
Award: The boot-block BIOS will execute an AUTOEXEC.BAT file on a bootable diskette. Copy an Award flasher & the correct BIOS *.bin file on the floppy and execute it automaticly by putting awdflash *.bin in the AUTOEXEC.BAT file.
AMI: The AMI boot-block BIOS will look for a AMIBOOT.ROM file on a diskette. Copy and rename the correct BIOS file on the floppy and power up the PC. The floppy doesn't need to be bootable. You will see the PC read the floppy, after about 4 minutes you will hear 4 beeps, this means the transfer is done. Reboot the PC and modify the CMOS for your configuration.
Solution 2: Get a new BIOS chip
  1. Contact your motherboard manufacturer to see if they sell BIOS chips. Some motherboard manufactures send them for free.
  2. Contact a company that sells pre-flashed chips, like Unicore Software, FlashBIOS.ORG, BadFlash or Bios World
Solution 3: Hot-swapping
Note: I'm not responsible for any damage this method may do to you or your computer !
  1. Replace the corrupt chip by a working one. The best option is to take the working BIOS chip from a motherboard which has the same chipset although that's not absolutely necessary. It just has to give you a chance of booting into DOS. Before pulling the working BIOS chip out of it's original motherboard, set the System BIOS cacheable option in the BIOS to enabled.
  2. After you have put the working BIOS in the motherboard with the corrupt BIOS boot the system to DOS (with a floppy or HD).
  3. Now replace (while the computer is powered on) the working BIOS chip with the corrupt one.
  4. Flash an appropriate BIOS to the corrupt BIOS and reboot.

Solution 4: (for Intel motherboards)
  1. Change Flash Recovery jumper to the recovery mode position (not all products have this feature)
  2. Install the bootable upgrade diskette into drive A:
  3. Reboot the system
  4. Because of the small amount of code available in the non-erasable boot block area, no video is available to direct the procedure. The procedure can be monitored by listening to the speaker and looking at the floppy drive LED. When the system beeps and the floppy drive LED is lit, the system is copying the recovery code into the FLASH device. As soon as the drive LED goes off, the recovery is complete.
  5. Turn the system off
  6. Change the Flash Recovery jumper back to the default position
  7. Leave the upgrade floppy in drive A: and turn the system on
  8. Continue with the original upgrade
