Try using an external CD drive. Some machines will allow you to boot from an external and some won't. If yours does and the external will boot from the CD, then your CD drive is bad. Usually it's the optical eye that goes out on these, unfortunately you have to replace the whole thing.

How do I unlock the Bios on an Acer ES-1 111M Laptop


To boot from a CD, DVD or USB device, make sure that the device has boot sequence priority over the hard drive.

BIOS Boot

BIOS (Basic Input Output Subsystem) is a programmable chip that controls how information is passed to various devices in the computer system. A typical method to access the BIOS settings screen is to press ESC, F1, F2, F8 or F10 during the boot sequence.
BIOS settings allow you to run a boot sequence from a floppy drive, a hard drive, a CD-ROM drive or an external device. You may configure the order that your computer searches these physical devices for the boot sequence.
The first device in the order list has the first boot priority. For example, to boot from a CD-ROM drive instead of a hard drive, place the CD-ROM drive ahead of the hard drive in priority.
Before you set boot priority for a USB device, plug the device into a USB port.
To specify the boot sequence:
  1. Start the computer and press ESC, F1, F2, F8 or F10 during the initial startup screen. Depending on the BIOS manufacturer, a menu may appear.
  2. Choose to enter BIOS setup. The BIOS setup utility page appears.
  3. Use the arrow keys to select the BOOT tab. System devices appear in order of priority.
  4. To give a CD or DVD drive boot sequence priority over the hard drive, move it to the first position in the list.
  5. To give a USB device boot sequence priority over the hard drive, do the following:
    • Move the hard drive device to the top of the boot sequence list.
    • Expand the hard drive device to display all hard drives.
    • Move the USB device to the top of the list of hard drives.
  6. Save and exit the BIOS setup utility.
  7. The computer will restart with the changed settings.

Boot Priority Options

Some computer manufacturers allow you to select the device that contains the boot sequence from a special device selection menu. The example below uses a Dell system board.
To set boot priority using a device selection menu:
  1. When the computer starts to boot up, after the manufacturer's ID screen, press F12 several times. The device selection menu appears.
  2. Use the up and down arrows to select CD-ROM or

Recovery Issues A105-s361. Boot sequence always starts with HDD. Tried F12, tried F2 (bios). Any other way to boot from recovery disk(CD-ROM)!!


There is still a way for you to boot from your CD ROM. Just access or go to BIOS again, look for "BOOT" tab and then set the boot sequence of your computer and the set the first priority to be on the (ODD or CD DVD ROM), just make sure you put the CD ROM option at the first section and to do that, Use the arrow keys on your keyboard and highlight it and then press normally "F5 and F6" further instruction are there any way. Once your done, press F10 and select save and exit, Insert the disc on the CD ROM restart your computer at that time your computer should be booting now from the CD ROM.

I recently had a huge virus attack on my laptop and there is still this worm that my system picks up but not my anti virus i need to format my laptop but it does not seem to want to boot from the cd what...


Take a can of air and blow some air onto the laser gently to make sure no dust or dirt is affecting it.

Then go into the BIOS and make sure the cd-rom is the first boot device. Then put your operating system cd into the drive and "press any key" when that message comes up so the system can boot up off of the cd.

If after setting the cd-rom as the 1st boot device you can't get the laptop to boot up off of the OS cd then that means the cd-rom is bad and would need to be replaced. When you boot up off of the cd-rom your in DOS and any viruses or worms wouldn't affect it.

How do i recover my system with back up disk


Insert the recovery CD in your CD-ROM,Set your BIOS to boot from CD-ROM,then follow the Instruction.

That's it.

Note : Restoring your system with Recovery disk will erase your entire Operating drive data.Make sure you backup your data (if you think it has  imporatnt data) before going for recovery.

You can use any Linux Live CD distribution.But if you are not familiar with Linux.Download "Hiren's Boot CD"

Here is the link

http://www.hirensbootcd.net/

Just clikc the download button and extract the file using Winzip or Winrar.

Burn the ISO files with Nero or MagicISO or PowerISO in a CD.

Boot the system using that CD (set the First Boot Device as CD-DVd ROM in BIOS).

Select "Start Mini Windows XP"

then copy all the important files to another media.

That's it.

Go to your bios and make the cd rom the first boot disk.
To get into the bios, usually del key when booting gets you in.
Once you boot from the xp disk, follow the prompts until you get to the screen to hit f8, on the next screen hit R and the system will do a repair with out changing any of your settings.
Be sure to go to Microsoft and run the XP updates.

CD ROM Boot


In the BIOS are you able to "discover" the CD-ROM device? There should be a way such that you can specify what devices are connected to the system.

The BIOS version should recognize what devices are attached to the system.

You may need to "flash" (upgrade) the BIOS. Now a days, BIOS upgrades are available on the manufacturer's website.


Hope this helps :) Kindly leave a rating. Thanks..
