If you know how to go to your motherboard's BIOS, look for BOOT, then BOOT sequence or BOOT priority, disable the others then set your CD ROM to be on top (much like making it the 1st in priority) then save the settings after that shut the computer down then put the CD in, your CD will not BOOT first.

if you have more questions just lemme know, good luck on this one.

How to giving boot with different ways to acer travelmate 2423 laptop


1) You can set your boot options in your bios, watch as you laptop boots, you should see something like "Hit F2 to enter setup". Hit F2, select boot options then choose to boot from CD, HDD or external drive. Take care because you don't want to mess up your Bios. So read the screen carefully before changing anything. When you're happy, select save and exit then reboot, you should then boot from the device of choice in the order of choice.

2) Windows boot options, windows has several options for booting from, including safe mode. To do this, hit F8 several times while the laptop is booting, you should come to a screen with the several options on offer.

Hi, excuse my poor english. How can I disable onboard video on a Lenovo M55e 9632AE2? Thanks in advance. Markus Brandl


There are two ways to disable the onboard video:

First Option:
When the machine boots up, watch for instructions such as "Press to enter setup, bios, configuration, ect." Within the BIOS setup should be an option to disable to onboard video. This can usually be found within an Integrated Chipset Features section or a Video section depending on your BIOS. Be careful though, messing with settings that you don't understand can affect your computer negatively.

Second Option:
Assuming you're disabling the onboard video because you have installed a video card, access the device manager by right-clicking "My Computer" and click Manage. Select the Device Manager on the navigation pane on the left, then expand the Display Adapters section. Right-click on your onboard graphics adapter and then click Disable and you're done!

I M USING WIN XP INSTALLATION CD BUT IT GIVES MESS THAT NO hdd POWERED ON


this is either the hdd failed for good..or it has something wrong plugged..or is just not seen cause it has some changes in bios...
just go to bios...restore to factory optimal defaults ...and try again ...be sure that you change the boot order after defaulting bios settings ..in such way to boot from cd first ...after that try again ...it may be a sata hdd and it is not seen cause it is not set right in bios..
if this not working ..remove the hdd and have it checked in another computer ...even a desktop if you find and adapter ..to see if it is still working ....

My system doesnt boot from the PATA drive


Sort of obvious (judging by the stuff you tried) but, Did you try going into the BIOS setup and making sure the hard disk is the first boot device? (if its lower than something else, say a windows hard disk, it'll load windows instead, etc.) If not something is wrong with your linux boot file, and the BIOS can't read/understand it, try reloading linux onto the hard disk.

Cd/dvd player is not working


Hello, Follow the instruction:
Press power button and enter BIOS menu. (Bios menu: while PC make sound beep press button "delete")
You can see there BIOS menu. (Be carefully, don`t change anything if you can`t understand something) You have to find there general settings and in general settings you will see boot button.
There will be many boot buttons, but your settings must be that:
First boot: FDD (do not change it)
Second boot: HDD (do not change it)
Third boot: CDROM (if it is not, change it to CDROM or DVD/CDROM)

BIOS and Sony CD-RW CRX300E


Your Sony CD-RW is an ATAPI CD-ROM for the purpose of your BIOS. Without you specifying the motherboard brand and model, it is hard to tell you what your issue could be.

Nearly all PC motherboards made after 1995 will allow you to boot from the CD. Enter the BIOS setup screen by pressing, during POST, <DEL> or <CTR>-S (Gateway), <F1> or <F2> and look for boot sequence. Some MB's have a boot sequence key you can press to select the boot device for that boot instance only.

If you are trying to say that you have an ATAPI CD-ROM and the Sony CD-RW, then check your master/slave/cable select jumper settings on the device. Each IDE channel can have at most one master and one slave.
