How to Insert Boot Media?


Mostly you wil have to adjust the BIOS of the computer to boot from USB or DVD media.
When booting most computers mention the button(s) to press to get into BIOS:
--A Function key (such as F1, F2, or F3)
--The Esc key
--The Delete key
On some PCs, entering the BIOS may require pressing another key or a combination of keys. Keep your eyes open for an on-screen message that says something like: --'Press F1 to enter setup'
--'BIOS settings: Esc'
--'Setup = Del'
--'System configuration: F2'
If you don't catch it the first time, simply try again. Your computer's documentation may also tell you which key to press.
3. When you know the right key, start the computer again and press the key when the first screen pops up: You may hear a confirmation beep or see a new message. If you timed it correctly, you'll be in the BIOS within a few seconds.

Good luck,
A.Misset

you will need a Windows boot disk / Windows install disk / WinXP disk to reboot the PC and install / or repair your OS

rescue disk will not boot your PC
to enable that you need to enter the BIOS, press F1, F2 or Del to enter BIOS , then you need to look for the BOOT seq in BIOS, change that to CD DVD drive as the 1st boot device, Save and Exit and insert the boot CD and restart
this should give you the solution

Open cpu cabinet and reattach the RAM memory.
Reconnect both connection to harddrive.
Most of the time this error comes because of RAM need reseat into it's position.
Then check if you still face same issue then you need to fix error on harddrive.
For that when you power up the computer press F8 key then enter into safe mode and if you able to enter in safe mode.
Then first remove temp files from computer.
Go to start->run or press windows key + R key then you can see run type in run "%tmp%" then press ok then delete all temp files then type in run "prefetch" press enter delete all prefetch files.
Type in run "chkdsk /r" then press ok then press "y" then restart computrer then it fix error on harddrive.
Also scan computer with updated antivirus then it works fine.
But if you are not able to enter in safe mode.
Then you need windows disk for that insert that disk into rom then enter in bios and set first boot device as cd/dvd rom then save settings and exit from bios .
Then it boot with that windows disk.
Then enter in recovery console then type "chkdsk /r" then it fix error then check if still same then again boot with disk.
Then follow the procedure on screen and choose options are when it ask for "Repair previous windows" .
Let me know if you need further assistance.

My W3410 eMachine desktop won't Boot at all!!!!!!


Sounds like a harddisk failure unfortunately. You might want to boot your original OS disc and perform a repair (non-destructive), this may either confirm an HD crash or fix the problem.

Bios date and time problem


You need to replace the cmos battery in your computer. Theu are usually Cr2032 batteries which you should be able to pick up for about £1.

unplug your computer and open the case.
When you look at the motherboard you should be able to easily locate the cmos battery cliped onto the mobo.
Take the old battery out and insert the new one.
put the case back on and plug the pc into the mains again.
You will need to re-enter the date etc the next time you boot up, but the settings should be retained after that.
