    At the startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, go to Setup/Bios or F12 for the Boot Menu

    Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.

    Hi dynamitenews

     

    1. are you able to boot to the desktop?
    2. what happens when you try to start the computer?

     

    You must have the DVD drive to start the computer using the disk, you cannot use the external hard drive to do the same thing.

    Also I suggest you to make sure you have defined the start as CD/DVD-Rom as the first choice option in the BIOS. See below the help link-
    http://Windows.Microsoft.com/en-us/Windows7/BIOS-frequently-asked-questions

    If nothing is done, then you can contact the manufacturer support for assistance on setting up the correct boot sequence and check.

    BIOS WARNING-

  • Z575 will not boot from the hard drive or restore DVD

    Need help on a laptop Z575 age of 2 years that immediately after an automatic update of windows, will not start either from the hard disk or restore DVDs (blue screen). Does not start in safe mode, not booting from a rescue of third party DVD. Attempt to start, it will show you the ability to start the Startup Repair tool. Repair shows that it is unable to fix with the detail following problem error messages:
    Signature of the problem 1: 6.1.7600.16385
    Signature of problem 2: 6.1.7600.16385
    Signature of the problem 3: unknown
    Signature of the 4:21200196 problem
    Signature problem 5: auto failover
    Signature of the problem 6:7
    Signature of the 7 problem: bad driver
    OS version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.256.1

    Normally think that the hard drive has failed or that windows update caused a software problem, but the inability to boot from any restore disk that makes me think that there is another serious problem with the hardware of the laptop.

    Any help would be appreciated. THX

    Additional note: when you try to boot from a restore disc, blue screen, error message:
    Stop: 0x0000007B (0xF78DA640, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)
    It is a hardware failure that cannot be restarted soft.

    I also removed the hard drive and RAM, reinstalled and rebooted, no change.

    Additional note: I was able to access the hard drive with a recovery of old program, focused on the (SpaceFM) ram charged through the DVD player. Hard drive data appears intact. Still does not start from the hard disk or a DVD of windows system.

    Thank you. Rather than buying a 4 GB or more large key USB comes from put this into hard drive replacement. Installed correctly, boots very well now. No other error of the optical drive... and no explanation I can see, but that's it.

    Unless something else pops up we'll just call cela a HARD drive failed after 2 years of common use. Thanks again.

  • can not boot from the CD

    I have a Dimension 8300 running XP Pro and I am trying to reformat the hard drive and reinstall XP.  I can't boot from the CD.  At startup after F12 and selected to boot from the CD, the sytem always starts on the hard drive. I changed the BIOS boot sequence, but still no luck.  The works of CD to read and write, but no boot from the OS disk.  Once the system boots from the hard drive I can start the CD of the OS that gives me the ability to reinstall XP, but no option to reformat.  My top disc is a DVD-ROM and the second disc is a CD - R.  I tried to boot from both drives, but the machine continues to boot from the hard drive.  Any suggestions?


  • Vista 64 does not start after the bios screen. Can not boot from the recovery cd or help

    Last night a MS pushed a windows update and my pc restarted automatically.  But it does not actually restart.

    The PC goes through the bios tests, passes and then crashes and does not start in Vista.

    I can't start at all, including safe mode.

    I can't the system recovery option in HP bios to load.  Can I only use my Vista64 system recovery bootable cd or actually start.

    First of all, I thought it was a HARD drive problem, but tests of the bios disk hard that all spend, even the 2 hours 'SMART' test that he was running.

    What happens when you try to boot from the recovery CD? You receive messages or error codes?

    You can check if the boot in the BIOS settings priority is configured to boot to CD\DVD.

  • Can not boot from the CD to recover OS - Portege M200

    Hello

    I'm working on my Portege M200 friends that she bought used. Only, it came with an external USB CDROM drive and the laptop computer AC adapter. To make things better the HD is no longer recognized by the BIOS. I had a spare HD so I installed it and now the BIOS see the new HD, Yay!

    I also discovered that I could buy a replacement Toshiba system recovery CD, new Yay! But before I do that I wanted to make sure I could boot from the external CDROM drive. I plugged the CDROM drive and attempted to start on a spare windows xp CD. But it does not start on the CD. I made sure that the CD-rom drive has been first in the BIOS boot priority, but that doesn't seem to work.

    I read the other posts that mention the boot directly from the external CD-rom USB drive does not work and I have to boot to the CD-rom drive by plugging the CD-rom drive in a PCMCIA card. If I have to buy a PCMCIA card that has USB ports for connecting external USB CDROM drive in for I can boot from a CD?

    If there will be any brand/type of work? If this is not the case, what brand/type is known to work.
    Any advise will be greatly appreciated!

  • My C50 - B Satellite does not start from the HARD drive

    Details of the machine: -.

    Model number: PSCMLA-03F07Q
    Serial number: XE343127P

    Computer does not start from hard drive. No error message, just the start Toshiba at the end of self-test screen.

    Sometimes a reinstall of the operating system seems to correct the problem, but then he would go again, now the problem is consistent.

    I reduced the possibilities to a fault of BIOS, reasons.

    System boots from USB with no problems. Installation of operating systems is done without error. SMART hard drive data indicates a perfectly healthy hard drive. Memcheck will return no error.

    The obvious solution is to reload the BIOS, just reset it doesn't help. But that is the problem.

    1.4 BIOS update that the Australian site offers is a Windows program and the computer cannot start Windows.

    Obvious answer is to use a bootable USB key with an operating system 'live' on this issue, but all of these systems are Linux and the update of the BIOS is a Windows program. So much for smart solutions.

    Downloaded Bios version 1.7 of the European site but the iso inside the rar file is empty, 25 MB in size but nothing in there according to Linux. Tried to run his program on a Win7 64 bit computer and it returns an error that it could not find the correct iso file.

    I submitted a support request by email to Toshiba, but they believe that it could take three days to get a response, so I thought I would ask here as well. Can someone tell me please to a working copy of the latest BIOS update disk for a laptop Satelite C50 - B? Note: this model does not have a CD player so iso should be compatible with USB boot.

    See you soon,.

    Andrew.

    Hello

    From my experience that I n think that BIOS update is the final solution for you. When you set the default settings of the BIOS disk HARD appears correctly in the BIOS settings?
    HARD drive is also offered and listed as boot device when you enter in the start using F12 at startup menu?

    What happens when you start using recovery image installation created recovery USB key (I hope that you have created a)?

    Offer BIOS updates are versions of WIN and can be performed by running the Windows operating system.

  • Can not boot from the recovery disc - 0x000000D1 Driver_IRQL_not_less_or_Equal

    original title: cannot boot from the Vista recovery disc

    A real problem. Vista is prompting me to boot from my recovery disc and allow the repair of Windows. However, when I insert the disk it shows loading Windows, but once he starts to launch I get the BSOd with the "Driver_IRQL_not_less_or_Equal" error report with the error code Stop 0x000000D1. I searched on advice but all I can get into the repair mode, but I can't. F8 does not work in safe mode. Week last ChkDisc has run on every start and yesterday I received a number of parts of Vista won't load does not with error reports. Today, it started with Windows can not load the warning and instructions for use the recovery disk... I'm in a loop as I cannot cross the BSOD! Help please

    Mick

    Computers are strange animals. After my response to you, I had another attempt to go beyond the blue screen. Hey hop this time my computer decided that he had enough rest and proceeded without delay to start and I would like to action, the recovery disk. There then reinstall Windows Vista and am now to a new computer! It's time to move to Windows 7! The only thing I did yesterday was to unplug my printer to my laptop!

  • DELL Inspiron N5110 does not stop and does not wake from sleep

    Hello.

    I have Dell Inspiron N5110, who cannot stop it in Windows 7 or Ubuntu Linux. Specifically, I started Ubuntu Live from CD to eliminate the possibility that the problem is in Windows 7. Stop in Ubuntu does not work either. This proves that the reason for not an application in Windows that remains suspended and does not allow the laptop to close.

    The laptop computer may not wake after sleep or either Hibernate.

    I tried all the solutions that advised you to all the other people in the forum who have the same problem.

    1. the laptop cannot stop mode safe either.

    2 may not stop even after clean boot Mode - all services disabled and all package disabled Startups.

    3. I haven't tried to change the Power Options Advanced "Allow hybrid sleep" - both WE "On AC Power" and "Battery operated" - no change.

    4. I tried to install the latest NVIDIA video drivers. This did not help either.

    5 running only on battery change nothing - not cannot always stop.

    6 race only on AC adapter without battery - still cannot stop.

    7. I tried to remove the AC adapter and the battery, and now the POWER button for 30 seconds to RESET the phone - did not work.

    ATTENTION: I have read your forums all day and has seen at least 10-15 reports on the same problem, and not a single case fixed.

    8. This is why I have not tried Flash the BIOS with the latest version - I have read other people who have tried and it didn't work either.

    9. I loaded the BIOS default settings (F9) - stop still can't.

    NOTE: Change something in the BIOS and getting out once caused the laptop to freeze and I had to power off by holding button for a longer time.

    10. I ran DELL Diagnostics menu Boot (F12 at startup) - no error found.

    11. I couldn't find IEEE 1394 adapter in Device Manager to change the power management settings.

    In fact, none of the suggestions that you can give to change something in Windows is logical because I already mentioned that stop in Ubuntu does not work or the other.

    The question seems to be either in BIOS or a hardware problem. But which component? This is the CD/DVD drive?

    It is a new laptop.

    Please advice how to proceed. If you know which component fails please tell me.

    Remove the keyboard and palmrest (dell guide shows you how) and you should see a small button battery. Remove it at least 10 seconds, then put back. Enter the BIOS and make sure that there is nothing weird was changed. It should work fine now. I had this work in Ubuntu 12.04 these last days with no problems.

  • Satellite, L9W Click-Mini-B does not start from the USB flash key

    I have a mini click L9W - B.

    * What I'm trying to boot from a bootable USB key.

    I tried different sizes (1 GB to 32 GB), different manufacturers (without name and brand) different systems (for example. Linux distributions, rescue, antivirus, Acronis Rescue sticks), EFI sticks and non - EFI.
    All USB keys to start correctly on my computer desktop and even with my other laptop.

    * The Mini Windows 8.1 updated, the current version 1.70, in the BIOS BIOS are Secure Boot and TPM , which I've also tried a variety of combinations. The stick will be recognized in the start menu, the name of the USB device is displayed.
    I click on "USB", the Mini restarts, the reader is addressed (the LED flashes at the stick) is launched but not USB, but even once the HDD / SSD.

    If Windows starts, the key works fine. It matters little that, two USB ports, I use, or if the docking station is connected or not.
    If I restart Windows - settings - settings of PC - update / restore - restore - Enhanced start - use a device - try EFI USB Device, which is exactly the same thing happened.
    who can help?

    I hope that there are German support. -Hopefully, there are German-language support.
    If this isn't the case, please contact me.

    Message has been translated

    I don't know what is the problem here, but it turns out that it is certainly possible to boot from the memory stick bootable USB flash.

    Many users have been abele to boot from the memory stick USB external flash, but it is necessary to disable the secure in the BIOS boot option.
    Also if you want to install an unsupported UEFI system, the boot mode must be changed of UEFI in the CSM.
