You would have to go into your BIOS by hitting the F2 key as it is turning on. Then go in, and under Advance settings, make sure that the only place that it boots from is the Hard Drive. Make that the primary.

If it still has an error coming up, then it might be a file system issue with the OS.

Computer won't boot and can't figure out why. Keeps going through the loop that's shown in video.

Try unplugging the computer from the power source while its doing this. Wait 5 minutes, then plug back in.

With any luck it will reboot. Its worth a try.

How can I fix my laptop

  • You are right, your computer cannot find a harddisk to boot from as your device option to boot is from the dvd drive or from lan (network). Your harddisk might have failed, the cable has come loose or infected with a virus.
    BIOS is basic input output system, the program a PC's microprocessor uses to get the computer system started after you turn it on. When bios is shadowed, It means this program is copied from ROM to RAM during bootup for faster access. Source(s):

Computer wont start


You may try this; Turn OFF the laptop, remove the power sources (ac adapter and battery). Without power sources, hold power button 10 secs. Put back the power sources, and power ON the NB.

If same problem persist, boot from safe mode. Here's how;
  • Turn the computer on or Restart the computer
  • Start tapping the F8 key. The Windows Advanced Boot Options Menu appears. If you begin tapping the F8 key too soon, some computers display a "keyboard error" message. To resolve this, restart the computer and try again.
  • Ensure that the Safe mode option is selected, not Repair Your Computer
  • Press Enter. The computer then begins to start in Safe mode.
  • When you are finished with troubleshooting, close all programs and restart the computer as you normally would
If same problem persist, try reloading the Vista again.

Hope this works.

Why the projector is keep searching


Is the projector directly connected to the computer? The setting on the projector might be set to auto detect source, could be one reason why when you boot your computer up its detecting for a source where it is attach to. You can set that to manual and by the way change the cable since it seems that the device is unable to detect any source.

Hope this helps

T30 laptop - no picture on screen

It sounds like you may have the computer set to boot to an external monitor source. Try using the fn key and whatever "f" key up top that toggles the monitor source. if this doesn't work, try pressing f8 when booting up and boot into windows safe mode to see if it may be a driver issue or some kind of resolution issue.

Good Luck!

Toshiba satellite A205 will not boot

Re-installing your operating system should fix your boot-up problem.

Check your cmos battery to see if it is inserted correctly and that it still holds a charge.

Which type of business should startups incorporate? Each unregistered or registered business works below a form and the business is working under what kind of form makes a huge effect on the profits of the business and business as well. Selecting a business form is similar to selecting a car, where various models are available. But you need to pick one which is best for you. Here we are discussing some type of business which a startup wants to incorporate. Partnership Partnership is a type of organization of business where two or more partners operate and handled the business. All the partners are personally and equally liable for the business debts. It is very simple to form a partnership. There is no need of minimum capital in the partnership. To incorporate a partnership, only two partners are required. Up to some extent, partnership is similar to the proprietorship. The main difference is that partnership requires a minimum of two partners. Two or more partners can begin a business. A partnership can also be registered. A partnership can be easily transformed as a private company. LLP Limited Liability Partnership A limited liability partnership or LLP is a distinct legal entity and it can be incorporated easily. A minimum of two persons are required to form an LLP. Its main aim is to make profit. It can be easily formed in a country like India. The benefits of traditional partnership and private limited company are enjoyed by an LLP. Due to enhanced regulations and rules in the private limited company, it is better for a startup to form an LLP, if in the future, they do not want to increase investments. Sole Proprietorship A sole proprietorship is a simple form of business below which a person can manage a business. A sole proprietorship is not described as a legal entity. It is known as a person who is liable personally for all the debts and business is owned by him or her. In the India, after the beginning of the One-Person Company concept, it is not beneficial to form sole proprietorship. Private Limited company A private limited company is a highly popular business form. A minimum of two persons are required to form a private company. It is an ultimate business form. The reason is the private limited company owners can perform any kind of transactions of the business as per their liking. One Person Company OPC is considered as a modified form of sole proprietorship. To form an OPC, only one person is needed. Benefits available to a limited liability company or LLP are enjoyed by the OPC. Public Limited Company In the India, a public limited company is a type of highly powerful business form and it is a very big company. If you are a startup and want to expand your business, then incorporating a public limited company is an ideal option for you. This type of company is registered under the companies act 1980. A minimum of seven members are required to form a public limited company. Also, there is no limit on the maximum number of members.
