Hi Laman,

From the description of the problem I assume that you had an operating system installed and the laptop worked fine before the problem occure.
Usually this problem occurs when there is a hardware malfunction of the Hard Disk Drive.
Although you can follow this steps to diagnose if that is your problem.

  1. Press F2 and go check if the BIOS detects the hard drive. To do this enter the Standart CMOS menu. If "Yes", go to step 2. If not, you must replace the hard drive.
  2. From BIOS check also the device boot order and make sure the hard drive is 1st bootable device and is not disabled.
  3. Unplug all connected USB devices from the laptop and try to boot. If the result is negative, go to step 3.
  4. Press F12 and select the hard drive from the list and try to boot. Please provide me information for the output after that step, to tell you what further steps to take, if the laptop doesn't boot. If there is no entry in the list with your hard drive, probably you should replace it.
Good luck!

Pressing F2 is the shortcut key to enter in cmos setup or bios settings where you can setup interrupt request and the direct memory access and also changing system date and time. While the F12 key is a shortcut key where you can select a boot device which are the hard disk drive if it's loaded with the operating system like windows xp or windows 7 etc., and if you are going to install or reformat your computer select the cd/dvd room drive to be the boot device. Supposedly the computer will load after the F2 or F12 appears on your screen if you have the functional operating system. But if your computer still restarting and always appearing on your screen the said F2 and F12 keys that means it is required to be reformat your computer. But before that you try to tapping F8 key while turning on your computer and select safe mode and press enter, after loading and still restarting that is the time to format your computer but you must back up your data or files that you saved on your computer. Call a computer technician or IT that know how to back up and can format your computer. Have a nice day.

You can also use Symantec Recovery Disk or similiar product and replace the MBR (Master Boot Record) for many fail to boot problems. The utility section of this program gives you that capability. Replacing the MBR on any windows system has no effect on anything installed on the hard drive, nothing is lost! I have recovered many hard drives with this method especially those with the BSOD!

Linux mint 12 won't boot from CD


Restart your computer, press repetedly a key to enter BIOS, normally Del, go to Advanced BIOS Features probably and change to boot primarly from CD/DVD (1st Boot Device CD/DVD , or something like that), save and exit BIOS, and restart your computer with Linux Mint CD inside. Be aware that if you make wrong changes in BIOS, you could damage your computer.

Hi! Welcome to www.fixya.com.
Removed your power cable and drain power without any power. restart and keep on hitting f12 to get to the boot menu choose ODD then put the OS CD then press enter until its say press any key. If it did not work your other option is reboot and hit f1 or f2 to change the boot sequence on boot option. Restart pc then hit f2 go to boot option and choose DVD/CD to be your first boot option then press f10 restart and it should load automatically.
Hope this resolution fix the problem on your computer. Thanks for contacting Fixya. Bye for now.

I have an Acer Aspire One notebook. I cant seem to start it. I turn it on and this displays : Check cable connection..! PXE-E63 : Error while initializing the NIC PXE-M0F : Exiting Intel PXE ROM. No...


It happens when no boot device is selected, the default is network boot first, you must select CDROM/DVDROM or HD as your first startup device. boot up machine and enter bios setup think its F2 key to enter bios generally it del or f1 or f2 it may say onscreen at start if f2 doesnt work
in the bios set boot order to HD as firstboot option then save and exit
hope this helps
dont know if all acers do this but also if you press f12 on boot up it gives you current boot options select HD that way is current boot and would have to be done everytime

Laptop A3 not booting up


Sounds like your hard drive is not booting and that your keyboard isn't responding to your pressing F2 and F12. If you can locate a USB external keyboard or if you have a round PS2 port for an external keyboard/mouse - plug into the laptop with that then press F12 while the computer is booting, press it a few times to be sure you get it in the buffer - then the boot manager should show up. If it does, choose to boot the Hard Drive if available - same with pressing F2 - Setup or Bios CMOS Settings should be displayed, here you can try to boot from the Hard Drive or Check to see if the hard drive is being recognized or not.

You may need a new keyboard if your laptop keyboard doesn't get you into either menu, and to either make sure your hard drive is responding and can be set to be the default boot device.
