Hi! Welcome to www.fixya.com.
Removed your power cable and drain power without any power. restart and keep on hitting f12 to get to the boot menu choose ODD then put the OS CD then press enter until its say press any key. If it did not work your other option is reboot and hit f1 or f2 to change the boot sequence on boot option. Restart pc then hit f2 go to boot option and choose DVD/CD to be your first boot option then press f10 restart and it should load automatically.
Hope this resolution fix the problem on your computer. Thanks for contacting Fixya. Bye for now.

Hi yancart,

I see that you are having issue booting into windows on your machine and that you are getting black screen and a blinking cursor.

The issue you are experiencing can be a Hard Drive issue not being detected on the machine or possible something else is wrong with the system to be able findo ut we try doind some steps to check the machine.

>First turn the Machine OFF.

>Turn the Machine ON again then Keep on tapping F12 on your system to boot into the Boot Menu, or if it shows on the screen Press F11 Boot Menu then you should press F11 if your system uses F11 but in regular machine F12 is the Boot Menu.

>Once you have the Boot Menu Screen it should give you options from your Hard Drive to the DVD drive on your machine.

> Select you Hard Drive it should be the first on the list highlighted in Blue then press Enter on it to boot into your Hard Drive.

>Check if this will boot into your Hard Drive if it does not then, possible your Hard Drive is nto detected.

>If you can try to reseat your Hard Drvie from the machine just to see if it went loose, then try restarting the system again and see if it will boot into windows.

>If still the system will still not boot into windows then try setting the BIOS to defaults then restart the machine agian if still the issue is the same then most probably your Hard drive may need replacing.

Windows xp will not install


If you don't see the message on start up "Press any key to boot from cd" Then you need to change the boot order.

Start the PC and hit delete a number of times. This will take you into the bios screen. (Set up screen)

You will have a tab called "Boot Priority" or "Boot order". Make sure that CD/DVD drive has 1st priority. Save & exit & your done. Upon restart if you have a disc in the drive you will get the option to press any key to boot from CD/DVD. By default, most motherboards are set to boot from floppy & then Hard drive so in most cases you will need to enter setup & change the boot order.

Don't forget to rate me.

Reboot Vista


Put the discs in, and restart. When the bios says something like F12 or F10 for boot devices or boot, hit it. Go to cdrom.

Please rate my response, thank you.

Unable to boot Vista install DVD on FreeDOS


Your DVD should be bootable -- that is, restart and it should boot off DVD. If in fact you have an installable copy of Vista, and you have a working DVD drive.

If those two answers are correct, restart your computer and immediately figure out how to get into the BIOS -- Normally delete, F1, F2 or F10. Hit 'em all real quick and keep trying, looking also for something like "To enter into system configuration, hit ..."

There should be an entry for boot preference. Just make sure CD/DVD/removable media/ATAPI drives are listed before your hard drive.

Dual Booting


possibly by first creating a new partition large enough for Linux OS, but does not solve your problem...try getting a VISTA startup disc from another pc (floppies if you have the drive) and startup from these.
