Disk boot error?
well this occurs due to any one of these 4 reasons:
1.You have a floppy in your Floppy drive that is interfering with the boot process
2.In your bios settings..Change your First Boot device to HDD 0.
3.Your Hard disk's power cable is lose..You should open the case and just press the plug that powers the hard drive..There are only two..One a fat wire(looks like a ribbon)..The other one is the power cable
4.One or more files used for booting into windows are corrupted.

My computer says Non-System disk or disk error, Hhow do I fix this on hp2530p


Try to boot with you Windows CD, or the rescue disk you mad, while setting up the system. Then you start as if you want to install Windows. The system says: there is already a windows on the HD, shall I try to recover that. Answer yes and if the HD is not completely dead, this should solve the problem.
If the system disk can't find a HD, you are in trouble, because there is nothing to install the operating system. Let us hope this is not in your computer.

Asus k53E sx 194 ov start up wont repair cant do nothink useing my sons dell


Julie, start your laptop and before it gives the start up windows logo, press F8 a few times. If you pressed it at the right time than you shall see a bunch of options:

First, try to boot your computer using "LAST KNOWN GOOD CONFIGURATION" and see if it works. If it works than its all fine and smooth sailing. Login to your windows and then as a precautionary measure, Re-install your Windows from the Asus Recovery Manager.

Second, if the first option fails, then select, "SAFE MODE" option and it shall login windows Safe Mode. From there go to Asus Recovery Manager and re-install your windows to be certain that it shall work fine now.

OS won't start on Sony VGC-RB60G


To resolve this problem, start your computer in Safe mode, remove the display adapter, rename the .inf files that are associated with the display adapter drivers, restart your computer in Normal mode, and then update your display adapter drivers. The following steps describe this procedure in more detail:
  1. Start Windows in Safe mode. To do so:
    1. Restart the computer, and then press F8 while the computer starts.
    2. On the Windows Advanced Options Menu that appears, use the ARROW keys to select Safe Mode, and then press ENTER.
    3. Use the ARROW keys to select the operating system to start, and then press ENTER to start Windows XP in Safe mode.
  2. In the message that states that Windows is running in Safe mode, click Yes.
  3. Click Start, click Run, type msinfo32 in the Open box, and then click OK.
  4. Under System Summary, expand Components, and then click Display.
  5. In the right pane, note the information that corresponds to the INF File item, for example, Nv4.inf, Oem0.inf, or Atim128.inf.
  6. Quit the System Information utility.
  7. Click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
  8. Click the Hardware tab, and then click Device Manager.
  9. Expand Display adapters, right-click the display adapter, and then click Uninstall.
  10. Click OK.
  11. Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then click OK.
  12. In the Command Prompt window, type the following commands, and then press ENTER after each line: ren %systemroot%\inf\INF file name from Step 5.inf *inf.old
    ren %systemroot%\inf\INF file name from Step 5.pnf *pnf.old
  13. Close all open windows, and then restart the computer in the typical manner.
  14. Log on to Windows by using an account that has administrative privileges, and then wait for Windows to detect new hardware.
  15. When the Found New Hardware Wizard starts, click Cancel.

    If you receive a stop error after you remove the updated display drivers, restart the computer and use the Last Known Good Configuration option. To do this, restart the computer, and then press the F8 key while the computer starts. On the Windows Advanced Options Menu that appears, use the ARROW keys to select Last Known Good Configuration, and then press ENTER.

    If you receive a "System Has Recovered from a Serious Error" message when Windows starts, restart the computer again. This error message does not recur.

Gta san andreas error reading disk


I would try a lens cleaning disk and see if that helps. Oftentimes if there's just a little smudge on the lens it can keep certain games from playing while others work perfectly. It's been a while since i used one bought i've bought them from Best Buy and Staples in the past.

Good Luck!

Can not start windows


A 0xc000000f error indicates a missing or corrupt winload.exe file.

You can try accessing the BIOS and setting all local disks (hard drives) to autodetect, which may or may not fix the error. (I can't confirm since I don't have Vista... Vista is as bad as Windows ME, people, do not upgrade if you have a choice... and you always have a choice!!!)

The only other option at the moment is to get a hold of an installation disk somehow. For that you'd probably have to take it to a local repair shop since stupid PC distributors have stopped shipping the installation disks with new computers.
