My operating sys. was shoeing that some files were found and seen as corrupt or bad and advised me to back up my important files. I then downloaded the Windows 7 Starter Iso and burned the media disk. I...


To reset the BIOS password: You can sometimes remove and then replace the CMOS battery, other times this may not work.
The CD not booting: Did you burn the CD as an ISO (image file cd) or just a regular data CD? My guess is that is was not burned as an ISO which it needs to be to boot.

Sounds like u need to go into CMOS (System Setup) upon boot & make sure that the HARD DRIVE is the FIRST item in the BOOT ORDER and NOT your CD DRIVE. Also, make sure your Hard Drive shows up in the CMOS. If it does, then note what it says about the hard drive as it boots... If it is a bad hard drive, then nothing will install to it unless it is fixed or replaced.

Boot system error, insert boot disk..


If you are using windows,System files(boot.ini, config.sys, autoexec.bat, msdos.sys, io.sys) might have lost or corrupted accidentally. You can fix it easily by connecting your hard disk to any other system having windows. boot from the host computer's operating system. open my computer, select folder options from tools menu. select second tab (view) scroll down to uncheck "hide protected operating system files (recommended)" and click ok. now go to C drive. Now you can see the system files mentioned above. copy all the required files to your hard disks partition's root and shutdown. now take out your hard disk and connect to your computer and re-start.
another method is to make a bootable pendrive (visit: http://www.esnips.com/doc/0882f54e-3445-41b6-830d-e43fd7d02dc2/Active+Password+Changer+-+Boot+Disk+Creator
to download application to make bootable pendrive.) copy all the system files from another computer. boot your system using this pendrive and select option 3 to exit from the menu to prompt. copy all the files to your OS partition and now reboot. this will solve your problem (you may need to change bios setting to boot from usb). for further details you can contact av_balajee@yahoo.com

I have a staellite pro a200 and its asking for hdd1 password . and i need some help on this or the password if possibal. thank you r.s.hussain


Is this before or after your OS boots up? PW crackers such as OPHcrack will give you most or all OS passwords; BIOS-set passwords can be reset with boot-level tools on external media as long as the machine will boot from them or you can reset the BIOS to boot from them- if I remember, you can password the HDD in the BIOS independently of the BIOS PW protection. If you cannot access the BIOS, you'll have to open the case, remove the motherboard battery, and possibly manually reset on the MB.

At start no operating system found


By your description either the drive has died or somehow the BIOS has been changed to not be able to see the drive. Can you run setup on startup to get into the BIOS? From there you should be able to see if the BIOS is detecting the drive. Mose BIOS setups have a selection to automatically detect the drive. I would try that.
