Yes and no, are they both the same operating systems, usually the computer will search for the hard drive and reconfigure the setting and it may work, sometimes it will not reconfigure, just keeps running. Try it can not hurt anything will work or not.

Hi, Power supply died in my 10 year old computer. I put in a new one. The motherboard M6 STL light comes on. The cpu fan runs. The CD door opens and closes. That's it. Please help. Bruce

Possibly the power supply died whilst and caused damage to the system board or video board.
Have you still got the system board manual with the "Beep codes"? that will tell you which area to look. It is likely the video board has crashed.
Hope that helps.

Okay i have a ibm thinkpad r31 laptop, i have use an utimate boot cd to reenable f11 recovery program. but it didnt work so i downloaded the recovery cd and it enable the f11 ibm program recovery, so now...


You don't say which Operating System you use, so my answer will be presented in general, Windows terms. If yours is a non-Windows Operating System and my answer seems to be of some relevance to you, please consider applying the logic and principles involved here to your own Operating System and, if in doubt, please feel free to add a Comment or Clarification to this Question. Please include information about its Operating System. Doing so helps us makes faster, more accurate and more assured Remote Diagnostics leading to better quality and more useful Advice, Answers, Guidelines , How-Tos and Solutions.

You also don't say what happened and what fault caused you to need to try to run the recovery program.

It seems the recovery CD has altered the Boot Sector of the Hard Drive.

If the data on the hard drive is important:

Unplug and turn off the laptop > remove the battery > use a small screwdriver to open the Hard Drive compartment with the picture of a small stack of CDs next to it > remove the retaining screw or clip > remove the Hard Drive > use a Hard Drive Dock or an External 2.5" Hard Drive Enclosure (for this you have to remove the small silver Hard cradle that holds the Hard drive fast in the laptop) or an IDE/SATA to USB Connection Cable to connect the Hard Drive to a 2nd Computer > Back up all important data to an external storage device.

Reinstall the hard drive into the laptop > insert the installation disk > install a Windows XP Disc > Boot from the CD > When you reach the 2nd repair screen, press R to Repair XP.

If you have a different Operating System follow the same process > select Start Up Repair (for Vista or Windows 7)

I hope this helps.

sounds like your system is booting up and running due to the hold power shutdown procedure. you might try replacing the video card or adding one if your video is integrated.

If the CD drive door won't open, odds are that at least you know the drive is without power. Have you had the case opened up at all? With what you've described here your computer needs the tender, loving care of a technician.

I have put in a 160 gb hard drive into my inspiron 6000, and when i try to boot up from the disc, it says no boot sector on the hard drive ....marian

OK, try this >>>>> Forget the BIOS just for the time being. Restart the laptop and as it starts press F12, this should bring up a boot order screen without having to go into the BIOS, pop the disk in if it's not already and use the cursor key to select the CD/DVD and hit enter. Hopefully it should then try to boot from the CD. If you need anymore help or advice please post back. Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

4016 gATEWAY computer wont boot

Plug off your Hard Disk and give a try. If the system boots then, its a prob with HDD. Else, it may be because of the monitor, or the RAM module.

Thank you!

Just replace the old one and put in your restore disc and it should ask if you want to boot from the cd and that will take care of it
