Compaq Presario pops up a system boot menu everytime at startup.


This comes up mostly when it requires a BIOS save. Try that. If that does not help, sometimes setting the default settings and saving will help.

I want to format my pc but not sure how to.it was easy on my old lap top but this one i cant seem to figure it out


what operating system are you installing?
Go into bios at start up; press del or f1 and set your DVD drive to be the first boot option. Put your operating system install disc in the DVD drive and save and exit bios. When the PC restarts it will ask you if you want to boot from CD. hit a key to start from CD. The operating system will begin to install and give you the option of where to install. At this stage you can also select to format the hard disk make partitions or delete them. On Win7 and vista these options are available when you choose advanced from the hard disk selection screen.

sounds like your floppy drive is failing, you could get it replaced or simply turn it off via the BIOS.
to turn it off simply hit the F2 key. On the first screen usually it will list your Hard Drives, CD ROMs', and the Floppy. scroll down to the floppy and hit enter ot the corresponding key form the bios's legend at the bottom or right hand side of the screen untill you see disable.
Next you can navigate to Save & exit or hit F10 to do the same. G/L.

Make sure you don't have any discs in any drives when you restart the computer. Unplug any USB devices except mouse and keyboard before re-booting.

oh no!! there's a possibility that it has a virus contiained on your hard drive. If you have rescue disk( comes with a floppy drive), insert it before booting up your computer. Run setup of your rescue disk then follow instructions of the certain program on how to virus scan your PC on DOS setup.

I searched for hours for a solution to this. Here it is:

1). Restart your computer, NOT using ctrl - alt - del
2). Press F1 when guided to.
3). When you get into the config menu, select Start Options, then hit enter twice.

There are all the options you need! Cool, huh?

Acer Aspire 3610 laptop - Windows XP error


on a friend's Windows 98 SE or Windows ME computer, create a floppy "Startup disk". Insert in your pc floppy drive and turn on. If floppy drive was not accessed, then get to BIOS and ensure "Boot from floppy drive" is set prior to "boot from hard drive". Once at first screen, select "Boot with CD-ROM driver". Insert CD-ROM and initiate entire re-install of Windows. Windows may do some self-restarting. At first restart do this: get to BIOS and ensure "Boot from hard drive" is set prior to "boot from floppy drive".
