The BIOS is the basic instruction set that teaches the computer how to access disk drives keyboardisplay etc The BIOS is typically placed on a ROM chip in the computer hence the term ROM BIOS.

The ROM BIOS allows the computer to boot itself. The BIOS is required to boot the computer. Thus, if the BIOS is password protected the computer will not boot
(or you will not be able to enter or change the BIOS settings.)

Get error message "no Bootable disc"

You need to check the BIOS settings to see if they've been changed. Easiest fix once you're in BIOS is to choose "default settings" and then reboot. If the settings are correct (choosing the internal hard drive as the primary boot device) and it still won't boot, your hard drive may have failed.

My e-machine w3410 gives me a disk boot error insert disk and hit enter what does that mean

You probably have a non-bootable disc in the CD drive - when the computer powers up, your BIOS's first boot device is probably the CD drive and since it has a non-bootable disc in it, it can't boot. Remove the disc and re-boot your computer.

Laptop wont boot from cd/dvd drive, hard drive is cleasn, no viru

Hi usavahe.
Booting from CD should be possible.
1) When the laptop first starts to power up, repeatedly press the F12 key. This should bring you to a screen that lets you select the boot device.
2) For the Satellite, it may show icons across the bottom of the screen. You want the one that looks like a CD.
3) It should the start to boot from the Windows CD (if it is indeed a bootable disc) and you will see the message "press any key to boot from cd".
4) Press any key you want on the keyboard and the Windows CD installation process should begin

Hope that helps

I have an acer extensa 2305wlmi....i have 3 discs how do i reformat my computer backto factory one says disc1 bootable the others say disc1 and disc 2

The disc1 bootable will be the one you start with. Place the disc in the drive and then power on the computer. If the computer doesn't boot from that disc and instead boots to the old operating system, you'll need to get into the BIOS and make sure that the CD/DVD drive is set to bootable and that the priority is set higher than the hard drive.

DVD not detect at bios. why

if you press enter or space when you have an item highlighted does it not give you the option to add the dvd / cd ?

On some bioses it is there its just that its been disabled as an extra boot device to speed things up so that its not always trying to read or find a cd to boot from so if you press the key it requests you to ( near the bottom of the screen when you are in the bootable devices section ) it will explain how to alter or add them. If you follow the instructions you should be able to add it as a bootable device

If its not detecting any discs in the drive whilst in the bios thats because you need to save the settings in the bios to boot from the cd / dvd and the disc ( cd or dvd ) has to be made bootable and then once the bootable disc is in the cd / dvd drive and you have saved the settings in the bios and restarted it should boot from the disc thats in there.

If you need to make a disc bootable you can either use nlite or you can get guides on how to make a disc bootable if you search google.
