Thank you for using fixya.

You are experiencing a no boot issue in the computer. It means that the computer does not load up the operating system. It might be caused by system failure or errors in the operating system, or missing files in the core of the operating system. What it's asking for is the Operating System's Disc enable for it to fix itself.

Here's what you need to do:

1. Look for the disc that came with your computer. It's called Microsoft Windows Operating System. If you are using Windows 7 in your computer, then, it should say Windows 7 INstallation DIsc or WIndows 7 operating system's disc.

2. Insert it in the DVD drive.

3. Restart the computer. Once you see the "press any key to boot to cd" message on a black or blue screen, press any key. It will then load up the disc and it will ask to install or repair the operating system. You don't need to install the operating system, so select repair.

4. Follow the on-screen instructions until it will tell you if the repair is successful.

Inform me if the same problem occurs after the doing the procedure that I have provided you. Just leave your message by commenting in this post. And, I'll return to you as soon as possible.

Thank you for using fixya.

A6700f PC Desktop crashing

Try the Check Disk Utility.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

"disk boot failure, insert system

You should have a recovery cd, it will allow you to reinstall Windows. If you don't have even that then either borrow one from a friend and use it with you key (the one on the sticker), or order a new disk by following this

Hp pavilion a1210n disk boot failure, insert system disk and press enter. how do you boot in save mode

Turn your computer off, turn it back on, as soon as you do that, start pressing F8 repeatedly until you get to a screen where you can access safe mode. If it's saying disk boot failure, you most likely have a dying/dead hard drive.

I have a hp pavilion pc and it says boot disk failure please insert disk and press enter


Turn the computer off and then disconnect all the external devices like (printer,usb devices etc)connected to the computer along with the cable for the internet .Then disconnect the cable for power that would be right on top at the back panel of the computer tower and with the power cable disconencted press and hold the power button for atleast 30 seconds.Turn the computer on if it takes you to the desktop then it means that there is some external device that is causing the computer not to come up to the desktop so find which deveice has gone bad check it by conecting one device at a time.

Next thing that you can try is turn the computer off and then when you turn the computer on or as soon as you press the power button to turn the computer on start tapping the F8 key repeatedly until you get a black screen that says advance boot menu option .Then used the arrow keys on the keyboard and then hit enter,select the operating system and then when you get the log on screen select administrator .If it takes you to the desktop then you can try doing a restore by going to start?all programs ?accessories?system tools and then system restore ? select the date when you think that you r computer was working fine and then click on next next to exit from the wizard.Should fix the issue .

If the computer does not boot up to the desktop then without wasting time on any trobleshooting steps recovery needs to be done that takes the computer back to its original factory settings.To do this instead of the f8 key tap the f11 key till you get the screen that says system recovery ,click next until you get the screen that has advance option ?click on it ?select destructive recovery ?click next the recovery will start and the computer will be formated (whatever you have added after you bought the computer would be lost) ?If the recovery does not work this was then it needs to be done from the recovery disks and fot that you call call HP...

all the best

My HP s123w Slimline Pavilion will not start up. Every time I turn it on, it goes to a black screen stating "DISC BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISC AND PRESS ENTER" and I do not have the system disc. Any...

Take the floppy disk out of the drive... this sounds like the classic error when the boot order includes the floppy disk first, and a blank or data (not bootable) floppy diskette gets left in the drive.

There could be another type of drive set as bootable. CD's and DVD's don't normally do this - they usually cause a prompt "press any key to boot from CD..." or similar.

You could go in the computer setup and set the hard disc drive to be the 1st in the boot order and also solve this problem.

Otherwise could be your C: drive got damaged somehow. Virus or otherwise.
