Could be your hard drive. Make sure all connections are good. You should have a 2 little lights on the front of system case, one is your hard drive activity light, it should be red. See when you turn it on if it blinks. Take the side of the case and listen if the hard drive is spinning when you start the computer up.

This issue is due to no boot device found.
Please check your hard drive is inserted properly and it is detected. If detected please reinstall OS and try to boot.

To check:
1.Power ON the system and press delete key.
2. It will get you into BIOS settings.
3. Try to find out IDE/ SATA disk connected. (IDE/ SATA depends on your Hard Drive)
4. If it shows up your hard drive name(Eg: Samsung XXGB/Segate XXGB), then it is detected properly.
5. Save and exit the setting.
6. Insert bootable OS CD and start installing Operating System.

My notebook wont even turn on completely with out it needing the missing or corrupt file. what do i do?


I assume you have XP OS, if so insert your XP cd in the rom, restart your pc and press F2 to enter bios setup, go to boot devices and select cd rom as 1st boot device, save and exit changes, the pc will boot and when prompt, start from cd, press enter, it will check the previous installed version and actually load windows, after loading it will give you a few options, use up and down arrows to select the option "press R to repair" enter on that option, when the dos screen (black screen) appears you will have the option to choose the volume that needs to be repaired (normally drive C) and that is option 1, press 1 and enter, now you will get C:/ or the system may ask you for a password (i hope you know that password) if not try to only enter, if that is accepted the C:/ will appear and then enter the following command, chkdsk /r and enter, make sure you insert the space after chkdsk and then press enter, this command will try to fix the missing file, hope that works for you

Make first boot device as your CD ROM by entering in to the BIOS -- > Boot Device Priority. To enter into BIOS either try F2, DEL, F10. then after insert the CD in to the drive and then you can notice this on a black screen " Press any key to boot from the CD" then press Enter or any key and then follow the instructions as suggested on the Setup of Windows XP . Now you can format your laptop.

System will not boot after installing lite on dvd burner


If you have an external drive connected to your computer, check in CMOS or BIOS settings. Your hard drive should always be at the first list of bootable devices.

If you still receive the same boot up problem, try to boot with your Windows installation CD. Go to Recovery Console and in the command prompt, type:

fixboot (then press enter)
fixmbr (then press enter)
bootcfg /rebuild (then press enter)
