To enter setup (Refering to the bios/cmos), press the Delete key very two seconds untill the bios main menu loads. You need to go to the menu heading - Boot.
If you added another hard drive to you're system the IDE (hard drive) it's jumper settings may not be correctly set. If there are now two IDE drives both the primary master & secondary drive's jumpers must be set correctly. You will ned to look at the white sticker on the drive for the correct jumper settings. Many primary IDE drives pin jumper is set as a single master drive with out a secondayr drive attached in the system. When you add a second drive the pin jumper one the master drive will most likely need to be changed to master with a slave. The second drive will also need it's jumper set as a slave drive. Once this has been adjusted you need to enter the bios & make sure you're primary master drive is set in the boot order. Most PC's boot order is as follows.
1st Boot device, floppy drive. (If one is connected to the system).
2nd boot device, CD-ROM drive.
3rd boot device, master IDE drive.
Please use the help of you're manual to guide you for these settings.

You must set the three drop down menu's to get you're board's drivers & manual. In the first menu choose motherboard, in the second menu choose MX46L & in the last menu choose manual. For drivers, the third menu choose drivers.

Still heave more questions? Just ask.

In doing a system restore i managed to wipe out windows in my el1852w ..now the screen says,install windows..X Windowscould not complete the installation.to install windows on this computer restart...


As PC starts watch screen for message "to enter setup press del" or similar. (press F!, press F2, press F12).Power down the PC and then power it back up. Be ready to press the KEY to enter setup while message is on screen. If you do not see the "enter setup" try holding the delete key as machine powers up.
Then repeat while holding F1 key etc. Once you enter setup (CMOS SETUP) find the boot settings and select CD as first boot drive. Put your full install CD in the CD drive have the license code ready. Example; AB123-1RD5C-XP94D-MN47G-LRIPQ. Your key will be on the CD sleeve or license sticker on PC. With install CD in drive power PC up. The PC should boot from the install CD. Do a full install on C drive. This should format your C drive erasing everything on drive C. Format with NTFS (new technology file system). During install the PC will restart a few times. At one point it will require you to type in license code. About half way thru install you will be instructed to remove all disks from drives, at this point you enter setup (CMOS) again and change from boot from CD as first choice TO boot from HD and second choice boot from CD. If you can not complete install you may have a hardware problem. GIVE plenty of time for each install step. Install may appear to have stopped but it will continue when it has completed that step.

Windows XP Pro will not boot up after installing Goflex external hard drive. I have disabled Legacy USB and reset boot drive order to my drive as first.


Hi oysjerry,
I see that you are experiencing a no boot issue after you installed your Goflex external HDD. before doing the options below, you can try booting into windows but do no connect your external Hard Drive on the system.
  • Keep on tapping f12 upon powering the system to get into the Boot menu screen then select you hard drive in the machine then press enter to boot to it.
  • If it boots into you internal hard drive after doing the Boot menu option then you do the last option provided.
  • Try changing the BIOS setting, check the Boot sequence if boot to other devices is the first boot priority then change it to your internal hard drive in the machine.
this should fix you concern,
if still this does not boot into windows

My dell inspiron 1545 refuses to boot after gone to sleep


This happen to my 1525 and XPS system when I upgrade to Win7. Check your power option by going into your control panel --> hardware and sound --> power options -->advance setting or just click the battery icon on the bottom right by your clock and click "more power option". You can change it to where it will not turn off your hard drive when in sleep mode. I recommend checking the Dell recommended setting. You may also need to update your bios, system firmware and hard drive drive firmware. you can download from Dell support. Enter your service tag # to get the right firmware specfic to your system. If it still fail than you will need to take it to a tech for more troubeshooting of the hard drive or mother board.

I have a HP Touchsmart IQ500 that is a little over a year old. It was working fine and I went out one day to come back and start it up to find it was only a blue screen with a few options.I found someone...


Hi,
This might be an issue with the Hard drive or the operating system installed on the hard drive.
Try to access BIOS screen tapping on F10 on restart.
If you are able to access Bios try to run the Short smart self test on the Hard drive.
To run the test follow the steps as follows:
on the main window you will see 1 st drive 2nd drive 3rd drive 4th drive.
besides these drive letters you will find your Hard drive listed.
Highlight that and press enter.
on the next screen highlight Smart support and press enter.
on the next screen select Short smart self test and run the test.
If it gives an error code that means the hard drive has gone bad.
2)If not then come back on the main page by clicking on ESC button till you come back to the main page.then Press F5 select yes to load set up defaults and press enter.Press F10 once to save configuration changes and press enter.
It will boot to windows.
3)Still if you face the same issue then you need to perform the recovery using the recovery cds.
4)If you don't have the recovery cds then you can contact HP support and order the cds and perform the recovery.
This should resolve your issue.
Thanks.

Hard disk Recognition problem


U are actually facing the same problem as "jackwilkinso". As my previous post: Windows XP does not come out to support SATA hard drive, because inside do not inclued the SATA driver, that why u cannot see the harddisk during the setup. What u can do is try to install the SATA supported OS like Windows Vista or Windows 7, or maybe can "forcely" put in the SATA driver in ur Windows XP setup CD.

My eurocom wont boot pass bio screens


Hi

few possible problems:

The hard drive is not detected or not working
Or the operating system is corrupt or missing
Or the computer is not set to boot from the hard drive.

if not then the computer is not set to start up from a cd, you can either enter the setup / bios to change that setting OR right when you power up the computer look at the screen it will say what button to press in order to enter bios thats one way to solve the problem but look for Boot menu, it will very likely be button F12 or similiar, it should say on the screen when you power on.

if it doesnt, then you need to go into the bios and change the boot order so that the computer starts from the CD first.

after that you should be able to start from the cd and install the OS (Operating system, eg.Windows)

heres some info on how to work the bios: http://www.whitecanyon.com/how-to-change-boot-order.php


Change the boot order so its CD ROM, optionally FLoppy drive here if your laptop has one of those, then Hard drive.

save and exit the bios, use the above link to get info on how to work the bios.

Test and see if the computer starts up normally, if not then you need to use the windows installation cd to install windows into the computer again.

if you get any errors or problems on installing windows let me know.

Power ON/ nothing on screen-


Hi,
enter the bios setup, if you can boot the computer/laptop. Usually F2 on bootup, it will say entering Setup.
Then scroll through the pages to see if your hard-drive is recognised by the system.

Screen saver problems boot problems


ok the disk check can be turned off in the bios setup
when you turn it it it says something to the effect like
"Press Del to enter setup"

what ever key it ask you to press press it..

in the setup change the first bioot device to HD0 or hard drive
Change the Floppy seek to off..


as per the screen saver,,
Try changing the screen saver to another one
If that fails turn the screen saver off

If that fails try a system restore to a date that this problem was not occuring..

IF THAT AS WELL FAILS THEN IT COULD BE HARDWARE RELATED
