A computer cannot boot straight to the bios, unless under 2 circumstances. First, the jumper on your motherboard is not set into the right location. (If you never mess around inside of your computer, this shouldn't be an issue...) The only other way a computer can boot itself directly into bios, is if your keyboard is going out or has a sticky key. Unplug the keyboard when you boot, if this does not solve the problem, it sounds like you have a serious hardware failure.

Go inside to your BIOS menu then set the BOOT sequence to CD as the first boot so when your PC with the operating system installation disk inside it will load the installation wizard.
Good luck hope that helps........

Well your jumper is probably set to boot right to bios. you have to go into your comp and move the jumper to its origional location.

I have a emachines w3615 and it wont boot error message is pxe e61


I disable the lan boot w/no pxe support in the bios and put in a new hard drive 30 gig and it is great now.

I believe the hard drive went bad and it then tried to load an os from a previous network, which caused the PXE error. The true culprit was the bad hard drive.

Brand new today? Stop fooling with it now! Take it back and make them give you a machine that works. If you fool with it any more, your warranty will be of no value.

Did I fry my ASUS A7V8X-MX motherboard? I bought an old computer(with this moboard) that was working. I opened it and put in my old HD to slave it. Rebooted to get into the BIOS (just to check things...


Hi there,

I do not think that this problem is to do with your Motherboard. If you had fried your Motherboard, you would not see anything when you started the computer, you especially wouldn't be able to get in to the BIOS if your Motherboard was damaged because the BIOS is accessed straight off the Motherboard itself. You will notice that if you take out all the Hard Disks in your computer, you will still be able to access the BIOS.

This problem is probably due to a corrupt Hard Disk. Maybe you set the old Hard Disk to the Master or whilst moving your computer you damaged the other Hard Disk. This problem is known as the Windows Reset Loop, your computer will not get past a certain point in the start-up process and will then restart itself and do the same thing over and over again.

This could also be caused by a problem in your BIOS, when you did the CMOS reset, it would have probably knocked out all of the stored data. When your computer is starting up, you must go in to the BIOS and check which drive the bios is set to boot off. Even though your Slave Hard Disk is set as a Slave, you can still set the computer to boot off this drive, and if this drive is corrupted it will not boot, it will go in to the Windows Reset Loop.

If the problem still persists, i recommend that you remove the old Hard Disk which you have put in and try and boot off the Master as a single drive. If this still doesn't work, set your other Hard Disk as the Master and remove the other drive and try boot off that one.

If you would like further assistance with this problem, pleas do not hesitate to contact me on Skype (Skype Username: fixya-support)

Computer crashed. Computer specialist restored drive. now cannot boot windows. Used restore disk. Did not work. computer boots dos screen then shuts down. boots again then shuts down.


Sounds like a Windows issue. Depending on how valuable it is to you to get your data off the drive, I would suggest buying a new hard drive (they are fairly cheap these days), installing Windows on that. Word of advice: Remove your old drive when doing the Windows install, so as not to accidentally select the hard drive your data is on. Once you have Windows installed, shut down your computer, remove the power cord, and install your old drive on a separate IDE channel or SATA connection. If your PC still tries to boot to the old drive, change the boot order in your PC's BIOS.

After installing hard drive, monitor, keyboard, mouse not working


Have you tried to enter BIOS? Are you able to enter BIOS?? There may be an option you have to hit to enable SATA, and to select the boot device order, which may be messing things up.
Also, remember that STATIC ELECTRICITY is your enemy! Ground yourself when working inside the case.

BIOS stops booting with two CD checks


1. Chek whether the time and date is correct
2. If No, change BIOS Battery, if Yes, No need to change the Battery
3. Install the latest Version BIOS (if the existing is the L8st, then reinstall)
4. Selct "Load Optimal Default" in BIOS and try to boot

My pc was doing this but now it's doing something different but simular


Try telling it to boot the CD instead of the disk for now, since you need to install from that...or perhaps a newer OS.

Need boot load for emachine T2484


Hi, You need to enter your CMOS/BIOS setup and set your "First Boot Device". Immediately after powering up, press the "Del" key, display will show CMOS/BIOS settings. Verify that all your hard disks are being detected/recognized by your PC. Thereafter, set your First boot device to your new HD. Save and Exit. Hope this be of some idea/help. Post back how things are or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.
