Question about Computers & Internet
My HP Media Center PC will not boot up. The CD Rom drive keeps blinking and trying to read something (whether or not there is a disk in the drive) but the monitor won't come on nor will windows start.
The CD rom just keeps blinking on forever.
Is the CD rom the problem and if so is there a way to turn off the CD rom so the PC will start windows?
The first thing that i would do is see if you can go into safe mode and try booting from there . when it comes up choose the one that is already hilighted. if it still wont boot then open up the tower and unplug the power from the cd rom. if it is your cd rom i would go and by another one or return the cd rom.
hope this works
