Disk boot failure on compaq presario S7300CL


Hi friend,

The message, "Disk boot failure" often means that the OS is corrupt and needs to be re installed. Try restarting the computer twice or thrice and check whether you can log in to the system. If the same error displays again then you have to re install the OS. But re installing the OS leads to data loss from the hard disk. So at such kind of situations you need a data recovery software to recover your data back. Yodot Hard Drive Recovery is a wonderful data recovery software which performs recovery after disk boot failure.

Disk boot failure. black screen. and hard drive makes a clicking sound.


99% sure that clicking sound, combined with the boot disk failure message, means your hard drive is dead. You can replace the drive with a new one, and reinstall windows, etc. but more than likely the data will be lost unless you use a data recovery service. Feel free to contact me or put another request in if you want specific info on reinstalling windows.
Sorry for the bad luck.

Compaq presario doesnt boot upon powering up


boot into the bios or if bios support diagnostics boot into that (typically F1 of F10 on power up) If that is not an option boot off the CD recovery disk and run diagnostics on the HD. Let me know we can take it from there.

Still wont boot


Disk boot failure is usually a sign that your operating system has become corrupt in some way.
If you've got your Windows disc, put that in the CD rom, then boot the computer.
There's a "repair" option that you can select, instead of re-installed Windows.
That *should* fix the problem.
It's also (thought unlikely) possible that your hard drive has died completely.

Compaq Presario 5WV270 Has No Oprating System


installing windows 95 on your pc would require you to have a bootable disk (either a floppy or cd)
insert your bootable disk and go to bios settings --> once you start your desktop pc, press Del key
then go to Boot menu and select your frist boot to floppy or cd (wherever your bootable disk is) then exit and save changes.
once your pc boots from the bootable disk goto C:
then make a directory (let's say Win95) --> C:\md win95
then press enter
then goto that directory which you've just created ---> C;\cd win95
then press enter
then copy your windows 95 disk on this directory
once you finished copy, run setup
be sure to remove your bootable disk the next time your pc restarts or change the boot sequence (again in Bios settings) to your harddrive as first boot
hope this helps
