Start enter set up (if possible). In BIOS change cd/dvd to first boot device. save and quit. Then try to erase hard drive. If you can go into safe mode tr to do a system restore, or last known good configuration.
Good luck

Can not get the mac pro osx 10 5 8 to start with the utility disk or with regular start up my on pilot lite keeps blinking


Put the Mac install disk back in. Try pressing command-option-escape to force quit. If nothing happens, then press command-control-power to force a restart. If that doesn't work, press and hold the power button for five seconds or so until the computer shuts down. Power up the computer again, and hold the option key so you can select the instal disc for startup. Run Disk Utility again. Sometimes you get a tangled file reference that requires several tries to undo - this could be calling the sleep routine instead of what it's supposed to do.

540 wont boot up


The hard drive could be corrupt, this will cause the operating system to run the error checking. If you had a virus, and it infected any windows files, windows will check the files, but if it can\'t fix them, then it won;t run. You can try to enter safe mode, tapping F8 at boot, you should see a option to repair or restore. If not see if you can enter Safe Mode.

In safe mode you can go to start button, all programs, accessories, system tools, system restore.

You can also get a windows install disk, same version as you have, and put in the disk and hit F11, and boot from the disk, and run a repair from it.


You really should go to the website Avira, and download the rescue disk, burn it to a CD. This will run a virus scan of the hard drive before windows in DOS.
If there is a virus, it will kill it. But there is a chance it can\'t clean the virus and windows won\'t start.

The other option is to just erase the hard drive, not format, erase it with a program like Active kill disk. Then reinstall windows, all the drivers.

It seems there is no booting as the memory is not responding or the hard disc is not booting up. Please check on the back up CMOS button cell battery on the back side of the laptop. replace if the voltage is low.
Also remove and reset the memory, if not you need to take consensus to know if this can be the hard disc, memory or the motherboard.

I lost my recovery disks during move now i cannt reboot system theres a problem on hdd it says no room left so now wont let me make any recovery disks yet there is nothing on hdd


Start Internet Explorer.
Click Tools.
Click Internet Options.
Click Delete Temporary Internet Files.
Close Internet Explorer.

Click Start.
Click Run.
Type CMD and press ENTER.
Type CD LOC and press the TAB key and then the ENTER key.
Type CD TEMP and press ENTER.
Type ERASE * and press ENTER.
Type Y to confirm that you want to erase everything in this "temp(orary)" folder.
Type CD \WINDOWS\TEMP and press ENTER.
Type ERASE * and press ENTER.
Type Y to confirm that you want to erase everything in this "temp(orary)" folder.
Type DIR and press ENTER.
You should see something like:

20 File(s) 3,165,781 bytes
20 Dir(s) 1,443,053,568 bytes free

i.e., where 1.4 Gigabytes is enough space to hold about 2 full CD-ROMs of data.

Find a USB memory-stick that is mostly "empty", and connect it,
to create more "available" disk-space, e.g., 1 or 2 or 4 or 8GB more.

Now, try to make the recovery disks.

Hard drive problem


There is no problem on the hard disk.. It's either the memory or the motherboard is having a fault. Try cleaning the memory contact point with a pencil eraser and try again....
Check also the voltage of the battery cell on your motherboard it should read higher than 2.8V DC, replace it if below 2.8.

Hoping a Fixya result on my suggestion... Anyway, post me back if nothing happens, we will fix it...

Computer wont start windows


it could be a memory problem. or as simple as the contacts of the memory are dirty, just remove the memory then clean the contacts with a pencil eraser.

Why? because it doesn't have enough memory to process Windows. I have experienced a similar problem before. We replaced the memory then it worked.

Sansa keeps shutting off/ wont read memory disk


The issue you have described with your portable device in most cases can be resolved by formatting your device. Please follow these steps even if you have already attempted them once before.





Please note that this will remove all music from your device.





Formatting the device in Windows Media Player





1. Open Windows Media Player with your MP3 player connected to the computer





2. At the top of windows Media Player select the Sync tab at the top





3. The MP3 player should be recognized on the right hand side and say "Your Player Name"





4. Above the player name is a button that says "Format Storage Media" click this button to erase all the data from the player





5. Continue with the acknowledgement of erasing all data on disk.
