I have this problem. My computer ACER ASPIRE ONE cant log in and i dont know what i have to do. The problem says: Check cable conection..! PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel PXE ROM. No bootable device -- insert...


It may be a problem with the hard disk drive. To check, try to boot to the BIOS. Turn the computer on and tap on F10 before the Acer splash screen. Once you are in the BIOS, check if there is any hard disk drive being detected by the computer. Look for any SATA device that will have a storage capacity. If it does not show such, then you have to replace the hard disk drive of your computer. Unfortunately, the data goes together with this device. It will be very expensive to retrieve it from a damaged hard disk.
If in case the hard drive is seen, then it is just an OS problem. The MBR is corrupted. To fix this issue you need to boot from the installation CD.
For XP: boot to the WinRC.
Tap on F12 on before the splash screen. You will have an option to boot from the CD. Load the WinXP CD and choose onboard or usb cd rom drive.
On the setup screen choose R to repair. The follow the prompts until you get a black screen.
On this black screen, type fixmbr then press on return. That should do it.
If it does not work, then you just need to have your Hard disk replaced.

Getting problem in formatting the IBM PC


check if the cable from the cd rom connected to your ibm pc if its ok , also check the master, slave configuration pins into the back of your cdrom. make sure that theres no conflict between the hard disk and the cdrom. Your cd rom may probably cannot be detected. make sure that it is working first. then install the hard disk. The hard disk must be in primary master and the cd rom must be in primary slave. then try booting it to your cd rom. also, try checking if your windows xp setup disk is bootable, it means that it can boot from cd rom. PM me if you have other experiences after doing what i adviced. Thank You.. heres my email. jmizpahadonai777@gmail.com

Cd rom does not read CDs.


Hi
The fasted and easiest way to eliminate Windows being the cause of a read problem is to remove the IDE cable from the drive and insert a CD into the drive once the system is powered on again. You should notice some change in the LED of the CD-ROM, at least it should blink for a few seconds. Usually if the LED goes out or turns red it would point towards a faulty drive - which you have already seem to establish.

One last shot to try before dumping the CD-ROM for good is to update the Firmware of the ROM drive - altough a long shot I have seen this work a number of times.

As Insomniac says CD-ROM's are very cheap to purchase these days

Insomniac I am remember when these ROM drives were very expensive - do you remember when the first Burners came out? As slow as a tractor and expensive as a Ferrari

Try borrowing a compatible HDD instead of buying a third one for testing and check if the same error exists. Try also using an external DVD drive to see if your internal CD-ROM is defective. Try also using another Windows XP CD installer. You can also use other OS installation CD to check it. Otherwise, there is something wrong with your lappy's motherboard due to tear and wear, heat, vibration, misuse and shock.

My computer will not read any of my disk or install


when you say disk did you mean hard disk? if you do... did you recenlty install a new hard disks?... if you did... did you check the jumper-master-slave configuration when installing the new hard disk?
only one hard disk can be configured as master in each ide channel. set up to master (not single) the one on the end of the ide cable and set up to slave the one attached to the midlle of the ide cable.
check that both hard drives are properly attached to the cable and that the power cable is properly seated.

when you say disk did you mean cd rom disks or dvd disks?
does it work in other computers? if it doesnt.. you cd/dvd disks may be the problem
are you trying to read a dvd disk on a cd rom only drive... you can't read a dvd in a cd rom drive.
if you cd/dvd rom drive should read the disk you're putting in, check in device manager if your system detects the cd/dvd rom drive. if it doesn't: check the physical connections (reseat ide cable, check jumper configuration for slave and master on your cd/dvd rom drive and check that the power cable is properly seated), check also in device manager the properties of the cd/dvd rom drive and check if it says on device status if the device is working correctly. if it doesn't post the error code that it may give you or google a solution with error code.

suggestion.. be more specific when posting your questions.. that way it will be easier for a solution to be provided as your issue could be interpreted in different ways
