I think you still have select your booting device is CD drive , change your booting drive option to Hard disk , if you can remove cmos battery once and place it , so that old data will be erased on PC memory and proced to your new OS.

GOOD LUCK

Hp mini bootmgr missing


First goto BIOS and check if the order of boot devices is correct. It should be HDD as first option to boot. Change the same and save and exit BIOS. This should help you boot. If not, you You can create a bootage USB and set your system to boot from the same as an alternate option. Once booted repair your OS.

Computer wont start or boot up cursor line on top blinks please help ?


Your computer can't find the OS on your hard drive. Most likely the boot sector has been damaged (or someone reformatted the drive). The entire hard disc may have failed.

Since this is a netbook, you will either need an external optical drive (USB) and a copy of the OS to boot from or a USB flash drive that has been prepared as a boot version of the OS. HP offers the Mini 5101 with WinXP Home, SUSE Linux or FreeDos. There may be newer versions with other OS options. Make sure to get the correct OS, even if you upgraded it.

You will need to boot to the optical drive or the flash drive. On other computers, this may involve accessing the BIOS to change the boot order. Look for a splash screen with the key information. Then turn off the computer and turn it back on while repeatedly pressing the key. (F1, Esc, Del, and F10 are common keys.) If you miss the timing, turn off the computer and try again.

If you are using XP, you will need to enter the Recovery Console. Then enter the command line mode. If your command prompt starts with any character other than C. Type C: then press Enter. Next type CD WINDOWS. Then try the BOOTCFG /REBUILD and see if a Windows OS is found. (type the command in and then press enter). Then type in the command FIXBOOT. This repairs the boot sector. You will need to confirm the commands. Type CD .. and CHKDSK /R /F to check for and fix damaged hard drive areas

If this worked, type EXIT. Try rebooting the computer. Otherwise use the command FIXMBR and then exit. Enter the HP recovery program (on the original hard disc or on Recovery discs, if you made them). Restore the computer to the original configuration with that program. If you ever did anything to repartition the hard drive, the recovery partition may not be accessible. You will lose any stored files and need to reinstall any programs you added to the netbook.

I hope this helps. Please note: losing this part of the hard drive may indicate that you have a failing hard disc. You will need to decide if you want to replace the drive or the netbook. If you decide to replace the hard drive, match the original drive size and data/power specifications (2.5" drive and SATA cable, probably). Use a USB/SATA/IDE hard drive adapter and a cloning software either added to the hard drive or from an optical disc to transfer the OS to the new drive and then set it as the boot drive before installing it in the netbook.

PC boot problem


Hi Jimmy,
Does the PC load windows fully before restarting?
If it does load and then restart,then it may be a problem on the part of your hard drive.
Run a full scan of the PC with an updated anti-virus to rid off any viral attacks.Make sure the anti-virus is always updated for better performance.
If it does not load windows,try this:-
  • Restart the PC.
  • Before it loads the first page,press Ctrl,Alt and Del.This is a soft boot sequence.
  • The booting leads you to the Bios setup page.
  • Under file save changes and exit[though no changes made].
  • If problem not solved repeat the procedure again.
If the problem persists,you may have to reinstall the operating system again.

Hope this helps.Thanks!

Turn the computer on no matter which button i push


You may have a defective keyboard. A defective keyboard will stop the boot up process. Try another keyboard and see if that fixes your problem.
