You will need to go into the BIOS and make sure that the CD/DVD drive is the first on the list of BOOT Priorities.

It sounds like its going straight to the HDD, hence it is courrupt?

Bought a new laptop and on start up lost power. Now it won't start up Windows - failing to load because the registry file is missing or corrupt

Since you recently bought it, simply return the laptop and get a new one. These kinds of things happen with computers and is no one's fault. It shouldn't be a problem to get a different computer of the same type. If you cannot return it, use your windows recovery disc to solve the problem. I hope this helps and have a nice day!

I bought a compaq laptop computer, when i turn it on it says, no bootable disk-- insert bootable disk and press any key.

You either have a failed hard drive or else a virus has corrupted the partition on the hard drive so it isnt found by windows. I am willing to bet that your hard drive had reached the end of its life. If this is the case you can get a new one and have your operating system re-installed by a friend or family member that is comfortable in doing so. Loading the operating system isnt that difficult with the correct CD's. If you have Vista or Windows 7 then most of the drivers will install automatically. If you have XP then that is a bit more involved as you will have to install most of the drivers that are required.

I have a HP Pavilion Elite m 9357c that willnot boot up. The screen goes black and says Disk Boot Failure,Insert system Disk and press enter

If it happens that you are prompted by the following error message "DISK BOOT FAILURE INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER", "No system disk", it means that the computer did not find the operating system to start (boot).


A diskette or CD has remained in the drive

Check out if any diskettes, CD-ROM or DVD-ROM are present in respective drives, remove them and restart your computer

The boot sequence is incorrect BIOS

Enter the BIOS setup of your computer and edit the boot (boot sequence) so that the computer starts primarily on drive C:
A new hard drive was installed

In the case that a new hard drive has been installed, this message is quite normal.
Just insert the correct CD to install the system (usually Windows), then restart, while making sure the CD-ROM is first in the defined in the BIOS setup as first boot sequence.
The hard drive is unplugged

Open the system unit and check that power cable of the hard drive is properly connected.
Corrupted system files

It may happens that some system files needed to boot the computer have been deleted /damaged or that the boot sector of the disc is damaged.

To determine this, start the computer with a system disk or CD-ROM installation of Windows (via the Recovery Console), and once started, type Dir C: to check if the contents of drive C: are accessible. If its ok then the problem comes from missing or damaged files, then you just have to run the command:

fdisk /mbr
sys c:

Note that before any restoration of the boot sector with the command fdisk / mbr, (supposing that there is a virus), it is recommended to use an antivirus running under DOS, such as
Damaged disk

If the hard disk or a partition is damaged:
If it detected in the BIOS setup, there is a chance that it is
not out of service.
If it is, try reinstalling the system through the installation CD, in order to reformat or recover the partition using a utility.

The laptop shows windows system 32 configuration file corrupt error how to run laptop?


Windows system 32 file is part of the operating system and when it is corrupted, you cannot boot up your computer. I suggest if you had a systems back files, use it to recover the missing file. Just load the back up disk CD/DVD into the CDROM, boot up your computer and run it to CDROM and option will display and choose the repair.

If don't have the systems back up disk. Only solution is to reinstall or repair your operating system.

For reinstalling and repairing, insert the OS installer CD in your CDROM and boot up your computer and run the repair or reinstallation process. Follow the procedure.

On turning on my computer I get the HP screen with three options at the bottom Boot menu Startup menu System recovery When choosing the boot menu or startup menu the computer fails to bring up these...

The hard disk inside the computer had failed and must be replaced.
Since your system had an recovery partition and not a separate recovery disk you must contact HP and order a separate recovery disk. If you have a friend with the exact model of c then you can use its disk, but only if its the EXACT same model.
 This is a very big problem - and at least a basic knowledge of hardware is required to replace the failed hard disk. And some software experience is also needed to reinstall.
