Invailid disc


Did you reinstall windows? If not, you need to put an operating system disk in the cd drive and boot from it and reinstall windows.

If you don't get an option to Press Any Key to Boot From CD message then turn the computer off and restart it and watch the screen for which key it says to hit to Change the Boot Order or Boot Sequence. Hit that key when you see the message otherwise it will not work and you will have to reboot. This is a temporary fix that will work that this boot cycle.

If you want to make a permanent change to the boot cycle or boot sequence you have to turn the computer off then turn it on and watch for which key it says to hit to get into the Bios or System Setup. You have to hit that key when you see the message or it will not work and you'll have to start over. Once inside the Bios or System Setup got the the Boot Tab so you can change the boot order or boot sequence. Normally you want it to boot from the CD drive 1st and the Hard Drive 2nd. With this setup just make sure when you boot the computer that you don't have a music cd or movie dvd in the drive or it will try to boot from it and give you an error message.

I have acer aspire 3000+ and cant change bios setup to boot first from cd rom and erecovery doesnt work


Why can't you change the bios setup to change the boot order or boot sequence?

Also you can change the boot order or boot sequence temporarily by just rebooting the laptop then watch the screen for which key it says to hit to change the boot sequence or boot order, then hit that key when you see the message.

Winfast boot sequence problem


Boot sequence problem? You set the boot sequence permanently in the Bios or System Setup. Normally when you boot the system the screen will tell you what key to hit to get into the Bios or Systems Setup.

You can set the boot sequence temporarily (just for the current boot cycle) by watching the screen when you boot and it will tell you which key to hit to change the boot sequence or boot order.

Laptop not booting


Your computer is trying to boot from a Network or Lan. You need to go into the Bios or System Setup and change the boot order or boot sequence.

Reboot the computer and notice what key the screen says to hit to get into the Bios or System Setup and hit that key. Change your boot order or boot sequence. The best sequence is to have the CD Drive 1st and the Hard Drive 2nd. Changing this in the bios or system setup will make the change permanent. Just make sure when you boot the computer that nothing is in the CD drive unless you have a repair disc or operating system disc in it.

You could make a temporary change but then you will have to change it every time you boot. If you notice the screen when you boot it also gives you the key to hit to change the boot order or boot sequence. This will allow you to change it just for this time that you are booting.

My asus desktop with windows vista will not start up. I keep getting a black screen that tells me reboot and select proper boot device or insert media? What is wrong?


It means your system is trying to boot from somewhere other than your hard drive. Make sure you don't have a CD in the CD/DvD Drive. Also when you boot your system pay close attention to which key it says you can hit to change the boot sequence or boot order and which key it says you can select to go into the Bios or Setup. Boot the system the go into the BIOS or Setup. Go to the tab that allows you to select your boot order. Make sure your Hard Drive is selected as the first boot device. Try rebooting after saving and making this change.

I want setup windows xp my ibm thinkpad t23 i can pot cd & restart press f12 but not start setup plz halp me haw can i setup windows xp my ibm thinkpad t23


If your trying to reinstall a new copy of Windows in your computer then first thing you need to do is change the Boot sequence of your computer so it will load the Windows CD you inserted then it will run the set up.

To change Boot sequence:
1. Go to BIOS - Press F1 or F2 (depends on model of your computer) immediately after you turn you computer on
2. Go to Boot Menu on the top of the window
3. Change your Boot priority - make sure your dvd drive is your first or primary boot.
4. Press F10 to save and exit.

Make sure you have your Windows CD inserted before pressing F10 coz your computer will restart and will loadautomatically load and run the Windows Setup

Note: If a message "Press any key to boot from CD" appear on a black screen press any key to start the set up

Your Feedback is greatly appreacited.

Hope this information will be helpful. Thank you for using FIXYA.

My computer does not let reboot in none of the reboot options?hdd,cdrom,patition none of them wats wrong?


Must have messed up the CMOS reboot sequence. Enter the CMOS menu screen. Go through the menus and look for "Boot Sequence", and set this to your primary HD for now.
Once you get your system up, you can change the Boot sequence to CDR first, followed by HD.
